With Tyron Smith suffering back spasms and Doug Free working through a quadriceps strain, the Dallas Cowboys will sign offensive tackle Emmett Cleary, who was cut earlier this month by the New York Giants. Before the signing is official, the Cowboys have to clear a roster spot. Cleary was among a number of players the Cowboys worked out after the season opener. The Cowboys don't believe Smith's injury is severe, but Cleary offers some insurance.

On Tuesday afternoon, 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick acknowledged that he is still working on putting back on the weight he lost during his injury rehabilitation. Coach Chip Kelly said Monday that Kaepernick isn't back to 100 percent, which is why he's not ready to consider Kaepernick for the starting job. Asked what he's doing to get that weight back closer to his usual playing weight of 225 pounds, Kaepernick said "Eat food. And a lot of it. That's something that I've always constantly had to do, I always have to be conscious of. I have a very lean body type so putting weight on eating is a little more difficult than (for) others."
