Blaine Gabbert Headshot

After Friday night's preseason game, Blaine Gabbert is looking like the Week 1 starter according to the Sacramento Bee.

All reports since OTA's have indicated that Gabbert will start. It would be massive surprise if Kaepernick earned the start for Week 1. Neither have impressed but Gabbert has looked 'better' than Kaepernick. It's not a pretty situation and Hyde's preseason concussion only further complicates the 49ers offense. Gabbert is unlikely to start all 16 games based off previous performance but it's a possibility considering how bad Kaep has been.

Wendell Smallwood Headshot

Head Coach Doug Pederson said he will give Wendell Smallwood some snaps with the first team in Saturday night's game against the Colts.

Smallwood is expected to be heavily involved in this game, specifically with the second team. Any first team work is a plus as he tries to earn the No. 2 role behind injury prone Ryan Mathews. Sproles is obviously too small to handle a full workload but is locked in as the third-down back. Smallwood is in a direct battle with the athletic Kenjon Barner.

Dashon Goldson Headshot

Dashon Goldson is scheduled to work out for the Falcons on Saturday.

Goldson is a very hard hitter and the workout makes sense considering the recent injury to rookie Keanu Neal. Neal is only out for a month but the Falcons may add Goldson just to fill in for the first couple weeks of the season.

Bryce Cotton Headshot

Bryce Cotton has signed with Turkish team Anadolu Efes.

Cotton never produced at the NBA level so this isn't a huge surprise. He has shown flashes though and we fully expect him to rejoin the NBA once his contract is up with Anadolu Efes.

Marcus Gilbert Headshot

Marcus Gilbert (elbow) left the stadium in a sling Friday night however Head Coach Mike Tomlin said the injury is not a serious one.

It's unusual that a sling was required if it's simply a minor injury but the team may have chosen to be cautious. Gilbert is the starting RT for the Steelers offensive line and helped the Steelers have one of the better O-lines in the NFL. He's not completely out of the water just yet but expect him to be ready for Week 1 barring a new report.

Mike Leake Headshot

Mike Leake has shingles and will not pitch on Saturday.

This has been a very up and down first season with St. Louis for Leake. This just complicates things further. He's been good in stretches, but will not pitch on Saturday due to shingles.

Alex Reyes Headshot

Alex Reyes will start for the Cardinals on Saturday.

Reyes has been pitching out of the bullpen, but now he will make a start for the Card's on Saturday. The 21-year-old right-hander has one of the best young arms in baseball, but his control is still very much a work in progress.

His surgery was performed by Dr. Marc Philippon in Vail, Colorado. The 26-year-old will close out his 2016 season with a .218 average over 284 at-bats. With Ahmed done for the year, shortstop duties will be split between Chris Owings and Jean Segura.

The Rockies transferred RHP Scott Oberg from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Stephen Cardullo. Oberg is now officially done for the season with axillary artery thrombosis.
