Seahawks waived RB Zac Brooks.

A change-of-pace back prospect, Brooks was Seattle's seventh-round pick. He got outplayed by fifth-rounder Alex Collins and UDFA Troymaine Pope in camp.

The Redskins at Bucs game scheduled for Thursday night at 8 PM ET has been moved up to Wednesday at 8 PM ET.

Tropical Depression Nine is expected to hit the Tampa area Thursday, so the two teams are getting this meaningless game out of the way 24 hours early.

Vikings TE MyCole Pruitt will be sidelined 2-4 weeks with a sprained MCL.

Pruitt was hurt in the Vikings' third preseason game. Expected to serve as the No. 2 tight end in a "move" role, Pruitt is extremely unlikely to play Week 1.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Kenny Stills' back "locked up" at Monday's practice, and the injury is "not considered serious."

It was initially reported as a leg injury for Stills, but after reading practice reports, it was pretty evident Stills was grabbing at his back after some end-zone work. Consider him day to day. Stills should be fine for Week 1.

Seahawks waived OL Kristjan Sokoli.

Sokoli is a SPARQ freak as a converted nose tackle, but the switch to offensive line didn't work out for the 2015 sixth-rounder. His agent, Brett Tessler, openly campaigned for Sokoli to be moved back to the defensive side.

Chargers released WR James Jones.

Jones was signed 27 days ago after Stevie Johnson's season-ending knee injury. He was expected to serve as the Bolts' No. 3 receiver, but Jones never got comfortable out west. Tyrell Williams is the overwhelming favorite to be San Diego's third receiver. Jones might get another shot with a different club in-season, but his playing days are numbered at 32 years old. He's been cut by the Chargers, Raiders, and Giants over the last two offseasons.

Bucs waived/injured WR Donteea Dye.

Dye strained his hamstring in the third preseason game and is expected to be out four weeks. Once healthy, he'll likely be cut with an injury settlement. Dye had been the favorite for the Bucs' kick-return duties.

MMQB's Albert Breer believes there's a "realistic possibility" the 49ers put Colin Kaepernick "on ice" for all of the 2016 season.

In doing so, the 49ers would protect themselves from Kaepernick potentially injuring himself, which would then result in Kap unlocking more guaranteed money in his contract if he suffers a severe injury. It would also mean Kaepernick wouldn't dress on game days, which wouldn't allow him to visibly protest anymore National Anthems. The Niners can save $16.9 million against the cap next offseason by designating Kap as a post-June 1 cut. In the "icing" scenario, rookie Jeff Driskel would likely serve as Blaine Gabbert's backup to open the year.

Damarious Randall and Sam Shields will open the season as the Packers' starting cornerbacks.

"Sam and 'D' have separated themselves," said Packers CBs coach Joe Whitt. "But outside of that, we're looking for that fourth, fifth guy." A 2015 first-round pick, Randall turned in a rock-solid rookie campaign and was able to hold off Quinton Rollins' challenge in his second training camp. Rollis is locked in at nickel corner. The Nos. 4 and 5 jobs appear to be open.

NFL Network's Jane Slater reports the Broncos have contacted the Cowboys regarding a trade of Mark Sanchez.

That's much different than the Cowboys contacting the Broncos. According to Slater, the Cowboys aren't interested in Sanchez at his current $4.5 million salary, so he'd have to take a pay cut to facilitate a deal. The Cowboys are looking for an experienced clipboard-holder for rookie Dak Prescott. Sanchez fits the profile. It's become clear Sanchez isn't long for Denver.

Patriots placed OG Tre' Jackson (knee) on reserve/PUP.

It'll cost Jackson at least the first six weeks of the season. We assume Jackson's issue stems from an offseason knee scope. Last year's No. 111 overall pick started nine games as a rookie. The Patriots are moving forward with rookie Joe Thuney and Jonathan Cooper as their starting guards.
Aug 29 - 7:20 PM

Rams waived TE Jake Stoneburner, K Taylor Bertolet, TE Benson Browne, DB Michael Caputo, LB Zach Colvin, G/C Brian Folkerts, LB Darreon Herring, LS Jeff Overbaugh, WR David Richards, and OT Jordan Swindle.

Stoneburner was signed earlier this month and was competing for the last tight end job. FB Zach Laskey and WR Marquez North were waived/injured.
Aug 29 - 7:01 PM

Patriots waived C Bryan Stork.

Five days after it was reported the Patriots were releasing Stork, he's now on the streets following a failed trade to the Redskins that was nullified when Stork contemplated retirement and then ultimately failed his physical. Stork has a history of concussions and is known as a hothead. If healthy, he should eventually land on his feet somewhere for a second chance.

NFL suspended free agent DT Sammie Lee Hill four games for violating the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy.

Hill opened last season as the Titans' starting nose tackle but quickly fell out of favor after suffering a sprained MCL. He visited the Seahawks in March, but hasn't drawn a lick of known interest in the months since.
Aug 29 - 6:45 PM

Seahawks placed DT Sealver Siliga on injured reserve with a calf injury, ending his season.

Siliga inked a one-year, $1.05 million deal back in March. He was expected to help the Seahawks' run defense, but Seattle opted to recently sign DT Tony McDaniel after Siliga was injured and fell out of favor. Expect him to be released with an injury settlement once his strained calf is back to 100 percent.
