With plenty of questions still looming around the 49ers' lack of edge rush, coach Kyle Shanahan said the team could still consider bringing Elvis Dumervil back "at the end of this." Presumably, that means at the end of the preseason. Dumervil led the Niners in sacks last year in a limited role and Shanahan said he trusts that Dumervil could contribute if he was needed.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said CB Richard Sherman (hamstring) is expected back to practice this week. There's a chance Sherman could get some work in the third preseason game, which is next weekend against Indianapolis but the primary goal is still to have him ready for the Sept. 9 season opener against Minnesota.

A pair of 49ers came out of Saturday's game with some fairly serious injuries that will keep them out for awhile. Offensive lineman Erik Magnuson has a serious hamstring strain that coach Kyle Shanahan said could keep him out 6 to 8 weeks. RB Joe Williams has a fractured rib that will keep him out at least through week 1. Shanahan said team will have to consider all options with both, including injured reserve or potentially injured reserve with the designation to return.

Sean McVay confirmed Sunday that LB Junior Galette will workout for the team Monday. "If things go well then there's a good possibility that we could sign him," McVay and linebackers coach Joe Barry have a history with Galette, 30, from Washington and defensive line coach Bill Johnson has a history with him from New Orleans. Galette was sidelined in 2015 and 2016 because of Achilles injuries. Last season he forced a fumble and had a sack in 16 games. Galette has been involved in several incidents off the field: In 2017, Galette was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct in Biloxi, Mississippi. In 2015, Galette was arrested, but charges were later dropped, in a domestic violence incident. The NFL suspended him two games. There's also a video from a beach scuffle in 2013 that appeared to show Galette striking a woman with a belt, though no charges were filed in the incident.

Even though he's getting only a fraction of the practice and game reps, incumbent QB Josh McCown refuses to acknowledge what seems obvious. He still believes the competition is open. "Until they tell us one guy's the starter and we operate in that mode, yeah, it's open," he said. Todd Bowles is following the same script as last summer, when he sat McCown for the second and third preseason games. One big difference: Last summer McCown's competition was Christian Hackenberg, who fell on his face. Make no mistake, Sam Darnold is NOT Hackenberg.

In a recent conversation with a supervisor of officiating, Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter was told regarding the new rules, "You'll know it when you see it." That hasn't been the case though. "I don't think that's how they're calling it at all," Koetter said, adding that "it's gonna take some time for everybody to get it right."

Bills rookie CB Taron Johnson said Sunday that Browns WR Jarvis Landry apologized to him after a block during Friday's game that injured Johnson. "I feel like I should have triggered faster," Johnson said. "I just got to be more aggressive on that play, that's the main thing. It's still football, at the end of the day. Stuff like that happens sometimes. I have no animosity toward him at all."

Bills LB Lorenzo Alexander on Sunday called a block by Browns WR Jarvis Landry against Bills CB Taron Johnson in Friday's game "dirty" and said the league needs to do a "better job of calling penalties on those types of plays."
