The Panthers released wide receiver Brenton Bersin, a league source confirmed. The move was to make room for a defensive lineman. Carolina has DT Eric Crume and DE Larry Webster on the practice squad so one could move up. Wide receiver Damiere Byrd remains on the 53-man roster and could be active.

Alex Boone appears to be ready to go for Monday night. The Vikings did not give the guard an injury designation on their final injury report of the week, implying he's ready to return from a hip injury for Monday's game against the New York Giants. Sharrif Floyd and David Morgan are the only Vikings players that were given an injury designation for Monday night; both players are out.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and former NBA player Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf met for over an hour in Berkeley, Calif., on Friday, a source told The Undefeated. Among the topics they spoke about was their protests, how they believe they've been misunderstood and the difference between Kaepernick having social media now versus Abdul-Rauf wishing he had it 20 years ago. Abdul-Rauf, 47, protested the national anthem while playing for the Denver Nuggets in 1996 and was suspended one game by the NBA.
