Saints LT Terron Armstead did not participate in the portion of practice open to the media Monday. But a source said over the weekend that he isn't dealing with anything serious. TE Michael Hoomanawanui, RB Marcus Murphy and CB Jimmy Pruitt also did not participate after suffering injuries in Friday's game. CB Damian Swann and LB Nate Stupar did not participate for unspecified reasons. Meanwhile, RB Daniel Lasco did participate in Monday's practice, a good sign after he absorbed a big hit Friday.

Early look at Jets practice: David Harris (shoulder), Brandon Marshall (hip), Mo Wilkerson (leg), Jordan Jenkins (calf) among those not practicing. It's probably precautionary with Marshall and Wilkerson. Also appears that Dee Milliner, Jace Amaro and Kenbrell Thompkins won't practice. No sign of Bruce Carter. Quincy Enunwa, coming off a concussion, is wearing a red jersey.

Dolphins HC Adam Gase said right now he's leaning towards sitting starting QB Ryan Tannehill in the final preseason game. But he's still not 100-percent sure and he wants Tannehill to remain ready.

For those counting out Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo now that he is dealing with a compression fracture in his back, Jason Witten offers up some caution: "He's had a great offseason, he's built on a lot of those things. He had his best season after the back injury '13 going into '14. People are going to bet against him, that's fine, and I don't think that's unfair to do so. But if you know what he's about, which everybody in this building does, he's going to be back sooner than probably expected and he'll play better than anybody thought he would because I know that's what he's about. He's going to prepare himself. This is a minor setback for him, and he's done it his entire life and that gives us all a lot of confidence."
