49ers have signed QB Josh Johnson and waived TE Asante Cleveland.

With better news coming in regarding the health of Vernon Davis, the 49ers felt like they could cut Cleveland. The Johnson signing is interesting. He'll be third-string behind Blaine Gabbert but the question is, why do they feel they need a third-string quarterback right now?

Nick Foles said his body is fine after all of Sunday's hits and he won't wear any additional protection for his ribs.

While we can appreciate Foles' grit and tenacity, the fact remains that these hits are going to eventually take their toll on him. The offensive line is going to have to learn how to protect him better and unfortunately, they're going to have even more difficult without starting center Jason Kelce for the next 6-to-8 weeks.

Update: Eagles C Jason Kelce underwent hernia surgery and is likely out for 6-to-8 weeks.

That's the first timetable the Eagles have given and that's a worrisome length of time. Especially considering the number of hits quarterback Nick Foles has taken over the first three weeks. David Molk, the back-up center, is going to have to do a much better job moving forward.

Vernon Davis not only says that his ankle is "way better,"but he showed no limp on Tuesday, Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Definitely a positive report from Inman and one that has Davis owners very excited about his impending Week 4 return. The Eagles rank 17th overall in pass defense and 14th against opposing tight ends. With the number of receiving weapons the 49ers have, the Eagles secondary is going to leave Davis exposed at some point or another.

DeSean Jackson (shoulder) was limited in practice on Tuesday.

This is not surprising as the Redskins play on Thursday night against the Giants. He played well on Sunday despite his shoulder being in noticeable pain throughout the game. The Redskins could use his big play potential and they'll take no risks to make sure he's in uniform on Thursday night.

Colts sign OLB Trevardo Williams to the practice squad and release DE Nnamdi Obukwelu with injury settlement. 

The Cardinals waived Williams in early August. He was a Texans 2013 fourth-round pick out of Connecticut. The Colts defense really could use a boost with their early season struggles. He will be used as positional depth.

Falcons announced that they have signed tackle Reid Fragel to the practice squad and waived practice squad tackle Terren Jones.

The Falcons could use as much quality depth along their offensive line as possible. The team struggled last season and injuries have already damaged them early in 2014. Fragal was a seventh-round pick of the Bengals in 2013. A former tight end, Fragel is a big man at 6-foot-8, 308 pounds. He's a developmental prospect for the Falcons.

 Arian Foster who is day-to-day with a hamstring injury, is unsure if he’ll be able to return in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills. 

This hamstring injury has been bothering Arian Foster since the preseason. Foster touched the ball 59 times in the first two weeks and had to sit in the Texans Week 3 loss to the Giants. "As soon as I feel 100 percent, I'll be out there," he said. "It's my hamstring's call." Alfred Blue is becoming a must-own for the foreseeable future.

Tommy Streeter was released on Tuesday.. 

The Dolphins released former Miami Hurricane standout wide receiver Tommy Streeter to make room for Miami to bring back kick return specialist and running back Marcus Thigpen. Streeter is still young and could get picked up to someone's practice squad.
