The 49ers promoted RB Jeff Wilson Jr. to the active roster from the practice squad. To make room, the team waived rookie TE Kaden Smith. Wilson offers depth behind Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert with Tevin Coleman (ankle) out Sunday. The Niners hope to bring Smith back to the practice squad when and if he clears waivers.

Last season Drew Brees performed much better against man coverage than zone -- he had the second-highest EPA/P disparity in favor of man. Last week the Rams ran 78% zone, second-most of any team. Brees faces the Rams tomorrow. ESPN's coverage classification is powered by NFL Next Gen Stats.

Over the last couple days, the Patriots had the following free-agents in for workouts: OT Caleb Benenoch (UCLA/Buccaneers); DT Carl Davis (Iowa/Ravens-Browns); DT Willie Henry (Michigan/Ravens); DB Josh Jones (NC State/Packers); and DB Adarius Pickett (UCLA). It is standard due diligence, as the team keeps its emergency lists updated.

Ravens promote CB Maurice Canady from practice squad and waive OT Greg Senat. ‬ ‪Two reasons for move:‬ ‪-Ravens down one corner (Jimmy Smith is out with knee injury)‬ ‪-Depth at cornerback (Cardinals used at least four WRs on 58 plays in Week 1 — more than rest of NFL combined)

Packers CB Tony Brown was fined $28,075 for unnecessary roughness in Week 1 against the Bears but Tramon Williams not fined for his late hit OB.

The big injury news for the Jets is LB C.J. Mosley and rookie DT Quinnen Williams have been ruled out for Monday night. Mosley is a big loss because he's the defensive signal caller. Neville Hewitt will be the "Mike" linebacker. Without Sam Darnold (mononucleosis) and Mosley, the Jets will be without their two leaders. Le'Veon Bell, Demaryius Thomas and Kelvin Beachum are expected to play.

Dolphins signed G/T Bryan Witzmann to fill the roster spot vacated by Julien Davenport going to IR. Witzmann started 20 games at guard over the last two seasons with Chiefs and Bears, respectively.

The Patriots have downgraded RB Brandon Bolden (hamstring) to out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Last week, Bolden played 16 special teams snaps and 1 offensive snap. It will be interesting to see if this opens the door for rookie Damien Harris (third round, Alabama) to be active. Also, while starting right tackle Marcus Cannon (shoulder) is officially listed as questionable, he is not expected to play, per a source. The top backup is Korey Cunningham, but he was inactive last week as he gets more familiar with the team's system.

With Tavon Austin out of Sunday's game against Washington, the Cowboys have called up wide receiver Cedrick Wilson from the practice squad and released linebacker Chris Covington. The Cowboys called Covington up from the practice e squad earlier in the week but needed the roster spot when Austin reported concussion symptoms. The Cowboys wanted to have five receivers active for the game.
