Blaine Gabbert left Sunday's game against the Texans with a right elbow injury and was replaced in the lineup by Chad Henne.

Gabbert has been battling a left (non-throwing) shoulder injury for the past few weeks, but this is unrelated to that. Gabbert was hit by J.J. Watt on the opening drive and lost a fumble on the play in which he was injured. This is Henne's third game of action this season. Gabbert is questionable to return.

John Brown (concussion) returned to Cardinals practice Thursday.

Brown's Wednesday headache looks like it was just a scare after he returned from his concussion on Sunday. It's still obviously a situation to monitor, and a concern heading into Week 1. Brown will probably be held out of this weekend's regular season dress rehearsal.

Patriots acquired DE/OLB Barkevious Mingo from the Browns.

The return compensation is unclear, but like many August trades, it's probably a conditional day-three pick. The No. 6 overall pick of the 2013 draft, Mingo has been a comprehensive bust, tallying seven career sacks, only two of which have come in the past two seasons. The Pats are low on edge depth, however, and Mingo was drafted by former Patriots associate Michael Lombardi in Cleveland. He'll start on special teams and fight for snaps on defense.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports J.J. Watt (back, PUP) expects to return to practice next week.

That would give Watt a fighting chance at suiting up for Week 1, but it would still be far from a guarantee. Watt has yet to practice this summer, and missed most of the offseason as he recovered from groin/core surgery. Another possibility is that Watt is ready for the opener but stuck on a snap count.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Texans LT Duane Brown (quad, PUP) won't be ready for Week 1, and could revert to the reserve/PUP list.

The PUP list would cost Brown the first six games of the season after he tore his quad last Week 17. The Texans are now without their left tackle and center for Week 1, and quite possibly beyond. C Nick Martin is out for the season. RT Derek Newton is battling a lingering hamstring injury. As NFL.com's Chris Wesseling points out, the Texans' lineup for the opener may feature only two returning starters on offense. That's rare in college, let alone the NFL.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports C Bryan Stork will report to the Redskins this weekend.

Stork was acquired from the Patriots for a conditional seventh-round pick Wednesday, but rumors immediately popped up he was considering retirement. Showing up this weekend should put any retirement talk to bed. Stork could compete for a starting job in Washington.

Browns EVP Sashi Brown the team is "not looking to trade" Josh Gordon.

ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi reported Wednesday there is a "cynical point of view out there" that the Browns leaked a report about trade offers for Gordon in order to drum up more interest. Brown said he was not going to "entertain" that "speculation." It is important to note, however, Brown did say every player has a price, and saying the team is "not looking to trade" is considerably different than saying Gordon will not be traded. Gordon will most likely stay in Cleveland, but it is not a given.

Colin Kaepernick said he believes he can still win the starting job.

"Yeah, most definitely," Kaepernick said. "I’m going to go out and show everything I can these next two games and make sure I put my best foot forward to show this organization, this team, this coaching staff what I’m capable of." Kap's injury issues have given Blaine Gabbert a big head start, but he has not taken advantage of the opportunity through two preseason games. If Kaepernick shows well Friday, he could make things interesting. Kap has not played in an NFL game since November 8.

The (currently) Oakland Raiders filed a trademark application for "Las Vegas Raiders."

The move does not mean the team is definitely going to Las Vegas, but it is another strong indication there is more than smoke surrounding the proposed move to Sin City. Owner Mark Davis has said the team will move to Las Vegas if the city "comes through" on a new stadium deal, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has already publically supported the move, suggesting there is backing inside the league as well.

ESPN's Jamison Hensley suggested the Ravens could employ a four-back committee to start the season.

With nobody playing well enough to separate from the group, Hensley thinks the Ravens could open the season with Justin Forsett as the starter, Buck Allen and rookie Kenneth Dixon as third-down backs, and Terrance West as the short-yardage option. That kind of split seems unlikely, but it is a reminder of how fluid the situation is in Baltimore's backfield. For now, Forsett is still the best fantasy option, but the best play could be to just stay away.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Texans second-round C Nick Martin will miss the season after undergoing ankle surgery.

ESPN reports Martin is expected to miss at least four months, which would essentially rule him out for all of the regular season. It is possible he returns late in the year for a playoff push. Martin suffered what was called a high-ankle sprain last week, but it is clear the injury was more severe than initially reported. With Martin expected to serve as the starting center as a rookie, the Texans will now turn to undrafted sophomore Greg Mancz.

Lions released RB Stevan Ridley.

The writing was on the wall after Ridley played behind Zach Zenner, George Winn, and rookie Dwayne Washington this preseason. By releasing him now, the Lions have at least given Ridley a shot to latch on somewhere else -- and perhaps offset some of the $250,000 guaranteed they owe him -- but he has not proven to be an effective back since shredding his knee in 2014. The 27-year-old could be nearing the end. With Ridley gone, Zenner is now locked in as the big-back complement to Ameer Abdullah.
