San Francisco 49ers DE Dee Ford (knee) is on track to play in Week 1, according to general manager John Lynch.

Footballguys view: About two weeks ago, Ford had a PRP injection to help with his knee tendinitis. The plan was for him to miss some preseason time but be ready for the season opener. Things remain on track for the star pass-rusher. Earlier this year, Ford signed a five-year, $85 million contract after the 49ers sent a 2020 second-round pick to the Chiefs for his services.

  49ers | Nick Bosa out of boot    Wed Aug 14, 06:11 PM

San Francisco 49ers DE Nick Bosa (ankle) is no longer wearing a walking boot and participated in some light rehab work Wednesday, Aug. 14.

Footballguys view: Good news for the 49ers here. Bosa won't play in the preseason but reports out of camp indicate that he could be ready for the start of the regular season. The 49ers travel this week for joint practices with the Broncos, and we don't expect Bosa to do much of anything in the Mile High City.

  Raiders | Maxx Crosby breaks hand    Sat Aug 10, 11:38 PM

Oakland Raiders DE Maxx Crosby (hand) suffered a broken hand during a 14-3 preseason win over the Los Angeles Rams Saturday, Aug. 10.

Footballguys view: Crosby had been getting praise in camp and looked like he could help the team's still struggling pass rush in the post-Mack era. He might be able to play with a cast, but will surely be less effective until it comes off.

  Cardinals | Arizona parts with Darius Philon    Sat Aug 10, 07:19 PM

Arizona Cardinals DE Darius Philon was released Saturday, Aug.10.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals have now released a projected starting defensive end and a defensive end that was going to be back by midseason to take significant snaps (Robert Nkemdiche). Rookie Zach Allen is going to be a crucial player for an overworked defensive line.

  Texans | J.J. Watt remains sidelined    Sat Aug 10, 03:36 PM

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (groin) did not participate in practice Saturday, Aug. 10.

Footballguys view: Watt's injury sounds minor, but with his history of maladies, you'd rather see him full speed throughout camp. He's still a premier IDP force, but will lose something if Jadeveon Clowney's holdout extends into the season. Most reports have Clowney returning before Week 1.
