ESPN's Ron Jaworski says Colin Kaepernick "has the ability" to be the best quarterback in the NFL.

Jaws is the preeminent quarterback evaluator in the analyst game. He notes that Kaepernick has better accuracy than Cam Newton, more size than Robert Griffin III/Russell Wilson and more speed than Andrew Luck. His MLB-caliber pitching arm is as powerful as there is in football. Jaws also believes Kaepernick will evolve into more of a pocket passer as time goes on, exposing him to fewer hits. Kap is the odds-on favorite to win Super Bowl MVP at roughly 2-1.

The Florida Times Union's Ryan O'Halloran "guesses" the Jaguars are shopping Allen Hurns on the trade block.

Hurns has yet to play this preseason despite being relatively healthy. He missed a bunch of action last season due to a severe hamstring strain. GM Dave Caldwell just signed Hurns to a "five-year, $40.6 million" deal last June, but he appears to already be falling out of favor with guys like Marqise Lee playing well last season and rookie Dede Westbrook impressing this summer. Hurns likely wouldn't fetch much in the trade department coming off a really down 2016.

Danny Woodhead has been sidelined at practice this week with a hamstring injury.

Beat writer Jeff Zrebiec wonders whether we'll see Woodhead the remainder of the preseason and at least questions his availability for Week 1. Woodhead has been very quiet through two weeks of the preseason, playing just seven snaps last week, rushing once for two yards and failing to catch either of his two targets from an erratic Ryan Mallett. Woodhead's stock should be more than fine as long as he's healthy and once Joe Flacco (back) gets back under center.

The Tampa Bay Times' Greg Auman expects Charles Sims to operate as the Bucs' passing-game and third-down back this season.

Sims thrived in that role in 2015, finishing as the overall RB17 in PPR formats. Last season, however, Sims appeared in just seven games after a lengthy stint on I.R. with a knee injury. He never looked quite right. While all the attention in the Bucs' backfield has been on Doug Martin and Jacquizz Rodgers for fantasy purposes, Sims also looks to be in line for a contributing role.

Rob Gronkowski has adopted "parts of Tom Brady's diet" while also cutting out alcohol and coffee.

It's unclear what the diet consist of, but Brady has been known as one of the bigger-name NFL players to go heavily vegan. The more notable thing for Gronk is cutting out the beer -- just during the season -- as he's long been the league's lovable party animal. On top of the dietary changes, Gronkowski also played in his first preseason game last week since 2012. Now 28, he knew he had to make some changes to prolong his career and stay healthy in the present. If healthy, Gronkowski is a favorite to lead the league in touchdowns.

A source told ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan that it's "not out of the question" that Odell Beckham (ankle) "could miss a week or two of the regular season."

That would seem to be a worst-case scenario. Beckham took a big hit to the leg in Monday's second preseason game. Although he looked fine jogging back to the locker room after the game, OBJ was reportedly "very sore" on Tuesday. (That happens when the adrenaline wears off the next day.) Beckham won't play the final two preseason games. Week 1 against Dallas is the goal.

Coach Hue Jackson named DeShone Kizer the starter for the Browns' third preseason game.

The third preseason game is the dress rehearsal for Week 1, so it's Kizer's job to lose. "He has made a lot of progress by investing the time necessary to learn our offense, working hard to improve on his fundamentals while also effectively moving the offense in preseason games," Jackson said. "Development is so important for a young quarterback, this is the next step he needs to take and he deserves this opportunity. He is certainly positioning himself well to earn the starting job heading into the regular season." Through two preseason games, Kizer is 19-of-31 passing for 258 yards and a touchdown, adding 47 yards and a touchdown as a rusher. Brock Osweiler started the previous two exhibitions, but threw an interception and no touchdowns.

C.J. Prosise suffered a strained groin in pregame warmups ahead of the second preseason game.

He's missed the past two practices, being limited to light running drills on a side field with trainers. Prosise working off to the side and missing practice has been a common sight in his year-plus with the team. And OL coach/run-game coordinator Tom Cable admitted the team is starting to get concerned Prosise will never be able to stay healthy for long periods of time. "I think we all are," Cable said. Prosise has a laundry list of injuries dating back to college.

Browns released DL Desmond Bryant.

Bryant was in the final year of his contract. The move saves the Browns $3 million against the cap. It was pretty obvious Bryant wasn't long for the team after he played into the fourth quarter with deep reserves in Monday night's second preseason game. Entering his age-32 season, Bryant missed all of last year with a torn pectoral. He should be able to land another shot.

Odell Beckham's MRI confirmed a sprained ankle.

The Giants haven't revealed all the details surrounding his injury, though it appears Beckham was able to avoid the dreaded high-ankle sprain. "We'll take it day by day and see how they respond to treatment," said coach Ben McAdoo, who was referring to both Beckham and Brandon Marshall (shoulder). Both players were injured in Monday night's preseason game against Cleveland.

Mike Gillislee (hamstring) returned as a full participant at Tuesday's practice.

A hamstring injury has kept Gillislee out for the past two weeks but he's ready to roll and eager to get his reps in with just 16 days until the regular season. There are no assigned roles in New England's crowded backfield, making it a difficult situation to assess for fantasy purposes. With that said, a healthy Gillislee would probably be the favorite for goal-line work in Foxboro, which gives him considerable upside.

Ty Montgomery (leg) returned to practice on Tuesday.

He's back after missing the last week with a lower leg injury and expects to suit up for Saturday's preseason game in Denver. The former wide receiver is locked in as the Packers' lead back.
