DeVante Parker, WR | MIA

Dolphins activated WR DeVante Parker from the active/PUP list.

Monday marked the first time Parker was able to get on the field with Tua Tagovailoa since camp begun. Preston Williams was also shifted to the reserve/COVID list, while Will Fuller remains on the active/PUP following a mid-camp injury last Wednesday. It would certainly help Miami's offense as a whole to get all back on the field together as soon as possible.

Jalen McCleskey, WR | NO

NewOrleans.Football's Nick Underhill reports Saints WR Jalen McCleskey has "stood out" at practice.

McCleskey pasted room temperature production as a five-year starter in college, totaling 167/1,865/17 across 42 games opposite Big 12 competition and 37/581/4 in his final year with Tulane in the American conference. Although he has yet to play a snap during the regular season since going undrafted last year, there's clearly room on New Orleans' roster for McCleskey to emerge in place of Michael Thomas (ankle, PUP) or Deonte Harris (pending DUI fallout) in the short-term. Tre'Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway are also viable picks to keep in mind in the later rounds of drafts given the team's lack of available bodies at the position.

Jimmy Garoppolo, QB | SF

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said the team "doesn’t currently have plans to give Trey Lance first-team reps."

Shanahan continued protecting Jimmy Garoppolo's feelings, saying he “thought Trey had one of his better days on Saturday” but that it "doesn’t alter the quarterback composition" in his mind. He also said there’s "no plan right now to change that" and does not "anticipate Lance being able to look better than Garoppolo before the season opener." The No. 3 overall pick has caused a stir in camp, making significantly more splash plays than Garoppolo so far, but Shanahan has yet to budge on the veteran's place atop the depth chart. With the team's bye in Week 6, it's still possible the organization transitions to Lance by Week 7 no matter Garoppolo's status and production at that time.
