Colin Kaepernick will play in the 49ers' preseason finale.

Coach Chip Kelly said Kaepernick "needs the snaps." Kelly has also insisted that Kaepernick remains in the mix in the 49ers' starting quarterback battle.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Monday that John Brown is still experiencing headaches.

Arians did insist Brown is "making progress," and that Smokey has been headache free for two days. Brown's recovery has still been alarmingly slow from an early-camp concussion. The Cardinals have not yet given any indication that Brown's reoccurring headaches could keep him out of Week 1.

Chargers signed No. 3 overall pick DE Joey Bosa to a four-year, $26 million contract.

In the end, both sides blinked. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Chargers agreed to give Bosa the largest up-front signing bonus in franchise history ($17 million) in exchange for offset language. Bosa now has only 13 days to get ready for Week 1 after skipping the entire offseason program. He's supposedly been working out "like a madman" on his own. Bosa could be on an early snap count, but he's an elite 21-year-old athlete. At least physically, it won't take him long to get up to speed.

Ezekiel Elliott doesn't believe he'll play in the Cowboys' preseason finale.

Elliott's seven carries in Seattle will be his only touches of the preseason. Following Tony Romo's injury, Dak Prescott also figures to rest on Thursday.

Speaking Monday, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Matt Jones (shoulder) is "progressing nicely."

That was the extent of Gruden's "update," but Jones seems to remain on track for Week 1. Jones has a ton to prove on the field, but his role makes him a low-end RB2 in fantasy drafts.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden says injured reserve is a possibility for RB Keith Marshall (elbow).

Marshall is only supposed to be sidelined three weeks, so it would be a drastic move. Of course, Marshall could be the player the Redskins stash to activate later. He's probably not important enough for that honor, however. Even with Matt Jones (shoulder) banged up, Marshall is completely off the re-draft radar.

Texans waived WR Josh Lenz, DT Ra'Zahn Howard, LB Carlos Thompson and OT Arturo Uzdavinis.

Lenz is a fourth-year UDFA who has never appeared in a regular season game.
Aug 29 - 2:13 PM

Lions placed LB Jon Bostic on injured reserve with a broken foot, ending his season.

Bostic could apparently be the player the Lions activate off injured reserve, as he was given a 6-12 week timeline upon going down earlier this month. Bostic is a core special teamer, and was expected to be a key reserve for the Lions after they acquired him from the Patriots in May.

Broncos waived/released WR DeVier Posey, WR Durron Neal, TE Manasseh Garner, S Antonio Glover, DL Calvin Heurtelou, DT David Moala and LB Danrell Sankey.

Posey has made one appearance over the past two seasons. Both Posey and Neal were apparently having solid camps, but couldn't crack the Broncos' front-loaded receiver corps. Posey is only 26, but he's running out of NFL rope.
Aug 29 - 2:00 PM

Lions released/waived TE Matthew Mulligan, CB Crezdon Butler, K Devon Bell, WR Quinshad Davis, OG Chase Farris, DE Deonte Gibson, DE Louis Palmer, CB Rashaad Reynolds and DE Quanterus Smith.

Mulligan is a 32-year-old blocking tight end. His experience will probably earn him an in-season look elsewhere.
Aug 29 - 1:30 PM

Lions placed LS Jimmy Landes on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, ending his season.

Stunningly, using a draft pick on a long snapper turned out to be a poor investment. Landes will be back in 2017, where he'll compete to snap the snaps that are longer than normal snaps.
Aug 29 - 1:20 PM

Rams released DE Quinton Coples.

The No. 16 overall pick of the 2012 draft, Coples struggled to get on the field for the Jets and Dolphins last season.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh hopes Breshad Perriman (knee) can play this week.

"If the doctors clear him, he'll be out there," Harbaugh said. Perriman has yet to play in a NFL game -- regular or preseason -- because of multiple knee injuries. Getting into Thursday's game would be a step in the right direction, but the sophomore is still unlikely to have a big early-season role.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he expects TEs Maxx Williams (undisclosed) and Dennis Pitta (finger) to return to practice shortly after the preseason finale.

The health of both has taken on increased significance after the Ravens lost Ben Watson to a torn Achilles'. Crockett Gillmore should open the season as the starter, but both Williams and Pitta theoretically offer more in the passing game. This is a situation to avoid for fantasy.

Pro Football Talk reports the Broncos are attempting to trade Mark Sanchez.

This is standard procedure before a team cuts a player who could have value on the trade market. Considering they sent a conditional pick to the Eagles to land Sanchez, the Broncos likely need to get a better pick in return to make the deal profitable. It is unlikely they will, meaning Sanchez should be cut in the near future.
