Eagles DE Derek Barnett is undergoing shoulder surgery and will miss the rest of the season, per Adam Schefter. It's another blow to a defense that has been operating without S Rodney McLeod (knee) and DT Tim Jernigan (herniated disc), and more recently, DT Haloti Ngata (calf) and CB Sidney Jones (hamstring). Expect Michael Bennett to see an increase in snaps, and for rookie Josh Sweat to move into the rotation.

Bill Belichick will be doing a voiceover leading into Fox's broadcast of Game 1 of the World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night. Asked about it today, he said, "It was awesome. I was honored they asked me to do it. It was great to be a part of that. I don't really have much of a baseball background, but the World Series is one of the great sporting events in this country, and has a great tradition to it, especially with these two franchises. I'm very humbled to have been asked to participate in that. Look forward to watching some of it."

The Chiefs also placed backup linebacker Terrance Smith on IR with a knee injury. Smith played on some passing downs. He was replaced during last week's game by rookie Dorian O'Daniel, who played well. Offensive lineman Jimmy Murray and tight end Deon Yelder were promoted from the practice squad to the active roster.

The Chiefs took another hit on their offensive line when they placed Jordan Devey on injured reserve. Devey moved into the starting lineup recently after the Chiefs placed guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif on IR. The Chiefs also played last week without another starter, center Mitch Morse, who has a concussion. If Morse doesn't return for this week's game against the Broncos, the recently signed Jeff Allen could move into the starting lineup. Another option would be Austin Reiter, who was claimed off waivers from the Browns early in the season.

Eli Apple had his ups and downs with Giants, who gave him a "clean slate" this offseason. He played better this year but they ultimately wanted to move on from the 2016 first-round pick. Saints are now on the hook for his remaining $1.1 million in base salary this season, but Giants will still have $2.3M in dead money on next year's ledger.

Aaron Rodgers the only player on the 53 not on the field for the open part of practice. The Packers are treating today like a Wednesday practice. Rodgers hasn't practiced on a Wednesday since his knee injury and that schedule appears to be the same even after the bye.

From Patrick Peterson to Le'Veon Bell, Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin makes clear he won't entertain "hypothetical things" from outside his locker room.

The Jets had to make a move at receiver and Rishard Matthews is a cheap, short-term fix — if his head is into it. A month ago, he was unhappy with his role with the Titans and requested his release. It was granted almost immediately. Matthews has some talent (945 yards and nine TDS in 2016) and some versatility. He can play inside and outside. He played 53 snaps in the slot and 30 snaps out wide for the Titans this season. He should be able to hold the fort until Quincy Enunwa returns.

The Steelers like the idea of acquiring Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson via trade. Antonio Brown tweeted Peterson would equal an "automatic chip" for Pittsburgh, and guard Ramon Foster says on his weekly radio show "you gotta see if your management team would take the shot" for a player of Peterson's caliber.

The Eagles, thin at RB, signed Donnel Pumphrey to the practice squad. He is a former fourth-round pick of the Eagles, who released him prior to the start of the season.

New Orleans had been in market for CB. Patrick Peterson was the ultimate. But for now Saints land former first-round pick Eli Apple.
