  Lions | Detroit's Week 3 injury report    Fri Sep 25, 04:40 PM

Detroit Lions TE Hunter Bryant (hamstring) did not practice for a second straight day Friday, Sept. 25, and has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals. CB Desmond Trufant (hamstring) was limited in practice for a second straight day Friday and is listed as doubtful. S C.J. Moore (calf) did not practice Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is listed as questionable. WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) and OT Halapoulivaati Vaitai (foot) were limited in practice all week and are also listed as questionable. DT Nick Williams (shoulder) was upgraded to a full practice Friday and has been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Jeff Okudah will likely draw DeAndre Hopkins with Trufant out in a real welcome to the NFL experience. Golladay looks like he's on track to play but he admitted that he's not 100% yet.

  Lions | Detroit's Week 2 injury report    Fri Sep 18, 05:02 PM

Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) and CB Desmond Trufant (hamstring) did not participate in practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers. OG Joe Dahl (groin) did not practice Friday, Sept. 18, and has also been ruled out. TE Hunter Bryant (hamstring) was upgraded to a limited practice Friday but has been ruled out as well. OT Halapoulivaati Vaitai (foot) did not practice all week but is listed as questionable. S C.J. Moore (hamstring), CB Darryl Roberts (calf) and DT Nick Williams (shoulder) were limited Friday and also listed as questionable. LB Jason Cabinda (ankle) and CB Jeff Okudah (hamstring) practiced in full Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Trufant being out is bad bad news for the Lions secondary, who will also be without slot corner Justin Coleman. At least the #3 overall pick Jeff Okudah will be healthy enough to make his debut, but he could face Davante Adams a lot on Sunday.

  49ers | San Francisco announces roster moves    Sat Aug 31, 09:31 PM

The San Francisco 49ers released OG Josh Garnett Saturday, Aug. 31, and waived/injured DB Adrian Colbert and OL Andrew Lauderdale. RB Jerick McKinnon (knee) and WR Nick Williams (undisclosed) were placed on the Reserve/Injured list, TE Garrett Celek (undisclosed) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list, and LS Kyle Nelson was moved to the suspended list.

Thompson, DL Jordan Thompson, OL Najee Toran, DE Jeremiah Valoaga, RB Austin Walter and RB Jeffery Wilson were waived.

Footballguys view: Putting McKinnon on injured reserve and releasing Wilson is a vote of confidence for Raheem Mostert as the next man up if Matt Breida or Tevin Coleman go down.

  49ers | San Fran picks up Nick Williams    Tue Aug 27, 04:05 PM

Free-agent WR Nick Williams (Broncos) signed an undisclosed contract with the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday, Aug. 27.

Footballguys view: The 49ers have a need to find help at the slot receiver position with Trent Taylor banged up. Williams showed off a little bit for the Broncos during his time in training camp there. It's a similar system in San Francisco, so he shouldn't have a problem getting up to speed. Williams has less than a week to impress enough to make the 53-man roster.

  Broncos | Nick Williams done in Denver    Mon Aug 26, 03:43 PM

Denver Broncos WR Nick Williams was released Monday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Williams didn't distinguish himself as a return man for the Broncos, one they desperately need to find. He was out of the league before the Broncos gave him a call earlier in the month. Perhaps Williams can latch on with another team but it might take awhile.

  Broncos | Nick Williams signs with Denver    Fri Jul 26, 10:56 AM
