Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo says it was "different" playing the first three series, coming out for four, and then coming back for three more series (not including kneel-downs).

Gordon reminds us all he’s really good

Cam Heyward has a protective cast on his right foot/ankle.

LeGarrette Blount hurdles like he’s in Rio

Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount takes the run and hurdles over Panthers safety Tre Boston en route to a 17-yard gain in the second quarter. Impressive.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said linebacker Ryan Kerrigan (groin) and running back Keith Marshall (elbow) will undergo MRIs tomorrow to determine the extent of their injuries.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said guard Trai Turner (shoulder) is fine. He said Mike Scifres took a hard hit on the knee when the Patriots ran into the punter. Didn't express concern.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Redskins corner Josh Norman played a strong game in a 21-16 win over Buffalo. Norman defended three passes and showed a lot of fire.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers coach Ron Rivera on Cam Newton's performance. "Disappointing. We talked about it."

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said "lower those passes, catch the ball and we're right where we want to be."

Bob Holtzman ESPN 

49ers starting wide receiver Bruce Ellington was just injured on a punt return. Ellington's body language, and the way Blaine Gabbert was talking to him on the sidelines, has me concerned that it might be long term. Right now Ellington is sitting on the bench with a towel over his head.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said the loss to New England came down to "missed opportunities more than anything else." He cited them in all phases.

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

An interception by Saints rookie QB Garrett Grayson late in the fourth quarter. Grayson has been up and down all preseason. Maybe some signs of growth from last year, but he doesn't appear to be challenging Luke McCown for the backup job.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

49ers QB Colin Kaepernick gets a first down on 12-yard completion to WR DeAndrew White but that's all for Niners offense on his first drive. Kaepernick goes 2-of-5 for 14 yards on his first series of the preseason.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

49ers QB Colin Kaepernick enters the game for Blaine Gabbert to open the second quarter. Gabbert handled first two series, leading the Niners to a touchdown on their second possession. This is Kaepernick's first appearance of the preseason and he does so with starting offense around him.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Like Letroy Guion, Aaron Ripkowski's knee injury that kept him out tonight vs. San Francisco is not believed serious. Week 1 not an issue, I'm told.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Through one quarter and one play, Aaron Rodgers is 6-of-9 60 yards and one touchdown, a 6-yard swing pass to Randall Cobb. Rodgers played two series, and that might be it.

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

Saints rookie RB Daniel Lasco, who has had a strong summer as a runner and special teamer, left after absorbing a big helmet-to-helmet hit that drew a penalty against Steelers. Lasco eventually walked off on his own power after being assisted by trainers on the field.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

You don't hear Marcus Lucas in conversations for the fourth tight end, but he's had a pretty good last week and a half. That touchdown catch from third-string Panthers quarterback Joe Webb showed Lucas' skills as a former wide receiver.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

One other injury update for the Panthers. Undrafted rookie outside linebacker Jeremy Cash is being evaluated for a concussion.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers starting left guard Andrew Norwell has an ankle injury and right guard Trai Turner a shoulder injury. Not sure if they are serious.
