Feast your eyes on this jewel of an ESPN telecast (in SD quality no less) between Jay Gruden and Kurt Warner, and read what they recall of each other, the AFL and that 1996 title game.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Tony Romo broke his bone in his back but did not rule the quarterback out of the season opener against the New York Giants. Romo hurt his back in the third play of Thursday's preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Chiefs limited the Bears to 20 first-half yards and two first downs in 18 plays. Too early to say their defensive problems are over, but still a good sign.

Dolphins first-round pick Laremy Tunsil (pictured) is improving. But in studying film an area he continues to struggle with is switching off and picking up stunts.

Rams cut to 75 players on Tuesday and 53 players on Saturday. Some on-the-bubble guys who can go a long way in securing a roster spot with a strong performance tonight, IMO: RB Aaron Green, WRs Duke Williams and Mike Thomas, TE Temarrick Hemingway, OL Isaiah Battle, DL Ian Seau, LB Josh Forrest.

Finally a touchdown for the Chiefs in the red zone, but it wasn't easy. They had to survive an Anthony Sherman fumble, a pass that Jeremy Maclin bobbled but caught and then a video review of the TD, a 1-yard run by Spencer Ware. Chiefs lead the Bears 13-0 late in the first half.

Bears starting CB Tracy Porter is down on the ground after it looked like he took a knee to the head from teammate Harold Jones-Quartey.

The Dolphins made several cuts today. WRs Matt Hazel and AJ Cruz and CB Brandon Harris were the key names. The team is now down to 78 players. They need to get down to 75 players on Tuesday.

Another Chiefs drive stalled deep in Chicago's end of the field and resulted in a field goal. Again, neither of Alex Smith's final two passes went into the end zone. Smith took a couple of big hits on the drive, one resulting in a helmet to helmet penalty on the Bears. Chiefs lead 6-0 in the second quarter.

Alex Smith is having a day for the Chiefs. He's 9-of-11 passing for 82 yards. His biggest play was. 17-yard scramble on 3rd and 14 to keep a scoring drive alive. But his two latest passes failed to go into the end zone and the Chiefs had to settle for a field goal and a 3-0 lead over the Bears.

NFL statement on 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and the national anthem: "Players are encouraged but not required to stand during the playing of the National Anthem."

Now Chiefs have forced first possession punt for first time in preseason. Last two weeks: end zone interception and touchdown.

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

The Falcons say Dashon Goldson is talking to other teams and knows what his role with the Falcons would be. Rookie Keanu Neal will miss a couple games after Monday knee surgery so Falcons need depth at strong safety. Dan Quinn said Goldson won't be a starter. Healthy Kemal Ishmael would be starter in place of Neal over Goldson if Goldson signs. Apparently not about money but about role for Goldson, so he'd have to accept being a backup.

Time is running out for TE Zach Miller and WR Eddie Royal to see preseason action. Both remain sidelined with concussions after being limited in practice all week.
