Not spotted at Jets practice this morning: Brandon Marshall (hip), David Harris (shoulder) and Bruce Carter (shoulder). They won't play Thursday, when most starters and key backups will sit. Mo Wilkerson returned after a rest day. Dee Milliner (hamstring), Jordan Jenkins (calf) and Josh Martin (ankle) among those in the rehab area, meaning they probably won't practice.

DE/OLB Paul Kruger is scheduled to visit the Saints on Tuesday after being released by the Browns. The Saints made a strong push to sign Kruger in 2013, and their interest makes sense again, since coach Sean Payton listed the pass rush as one of New Orleans' biggest concerns following Friday's preseason loss to the Steelers.

The Seahawks have released RB Zac Brooks, according to a league source. Brooks was a seventh-round pick out of Clemson. The team liked his ability as a receiver, but he dealt with hamstring issues in camp. Brooks could end up being a candidate for the practice squad.

Statement from Eagles linebacker Myke Tavarres, via his agent: "I want to apologize for the distraction I've become to all of Eagle Nation. I feel passionate about racial issues going on in our country and I thought that sitting during the National Anthem would bring more awareness to this issue and encourage more constructive discussion to find solutions, but I feel I only made things worse. I want to make change in this world, but sitting down during the national anthem just isn't the best way to do it. With that being said, I do plan on finding a better way. I'm young and I still have a lot to learn about saying and doing the right thing. For now, I will stay focused on football; but I will definitely look for opportunities to do what I can to prevent injustices. I am so blessed to be an American and I just feel a responsibility to do what I can to make things better."
