The 49ers traded CB Kenneth Acker to the Kansas City Chiefs for a seventh-round pick in 2018, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Moving Acker helps alleviate some of the glut at corner the Niners have to sort through as roster cuts approach. Acker started 13 games last year but was working on the third-team defense in this camp after the team drafted CBs Will Redmond and Rashard Robinson this year.

Cowboys executive Vice President Stephen Jones on Tony Romo's mindset now that he had been diagnosed with a broken bone in his back: "He's driven for this not to be like last year," Jones said. He's certainly not deterred and he really feels like it's going to be different but he can get through this and that he also feels very confident that our team can win football games without him while he's not here. He's driven to help Dak win football games for us so that when he gets back that we have a great chance to have a great season, get in the tournament and contend for a championship. Nothing's changed."
