Jonathan Stewart Headshot

Jonathan Stewart has returned to practice on Friday.

Added 11/04/16 10:50 am (EST)   Source
Missing practice yesterday was considered a "rest day," with all signs pointing to him being on the field for Sunday's game against the Rams, who have given up 121 rushing yards per game this season.
James O'Shaughnessy Headshot

O'Shaughnessy was traded to the Patriots on Saturday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Added 11:48 am (EST)
The Chiefs and Patriots worked out a deal that sent O'Shaughnessy and a sixth-round pick to New England to acquire pick No. 183 at the end of the fifth round. O'Shaugnessy does not offer much as a receiver with eight career catches over his first two seasons, but he should be a serviceable blocking tight end in run-heavy formations.
Brandin Cooks Headshot

The Patriots exercised Cooks' fifth-year option Saturday, NFL.com's Conor Orr reports.

Added 11:31 am (EST)
Cooks will be in New England through at least the end of the 2018 season with Saturday's announcement. He racked up a staggering 162 receptions for 2,311 yards in his final two seasons in New Orleans and chipped in 11 plays of 40 or more yards in that span. Cooks adds a vertical dimension to the Patriots' offense that they have not had in quite some time and if he's able to mesh with Tom Brady, he'll be one of the biggest bargains in the league in 2018.
Randy Gregory Headshot

Gregory (suspension) tested positive for marijuana on a drug test administered back in February, K.D. Drummond of USA Today reports.

Added 11:22 am (EST)
This marks Gregory's seventh failed drug test since entering the league in 2015. He's already serving a one-year ban as a result of a different failed drug test, so this development further complicates his path back to getting on the field for the Cowboys. Per TMZ's reports, people close to Gregory believe that his NFL career could be over. Gregory's situation moving forward should become clearer once the NFL decides on a course of action for his most recent transgression.
Vance McDonald Headshot

The 49ers may be trying to trade McDonald (shoulder), Cam Inman of The Mercury News reports.

Added 10:31 am (EST)
The 49ers' previous front office regime signed McDonald to a surprisingly hefty extension in December, adding three seasons and $9 million in guaranteed money to his pre-existing contract. The new regime, led by GM John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan, probably wasn't too excited to inherit such a sizable contract for a player who's caught only 64 of 118 targets (54.2 percent) through four injury-plagued seasons. The 2013 second-round selection hasn't lived up to his draft status even when he's been healthy, and he suffered a broken scapula two days after signing his extension. Even if he gets healthy and sticks with the team, McDonald likely will face competition for the starting job from some combination of Garrett Celek, Logan Paulsen and Blake Bell (head). Having passed on the position through the first two days of the draft, San Francisco may want to scour the bargain-bin free agent market for veteran tight ends.
Jaylon Smith Headshot

Smith (knee) is expected to take part in the Cowboys' rookie minicamp in a couple of weeks, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.

Added 10:18 am (EST)
The linebacker missed his entire rookie season after being drafted in the second round last year while recovering from nerve damage in his left knee, and while Smith has been a full participant in the team's offseason workout program, the May rookie minicamp should provide a window into how much progress he's actually made. A healthy Smith would compete for the starting MLB spot this season, but as yet there's still no guarantee he'll ever be 100 percent again.
