    NFL Opening Line Report: Sharps cause massive movement in Week 1 betting lines

    The long national nightmare is almost over. Real, meaningful NFL games start this week, and thankfully we only have to wait until Thursday for the first regular-season contest.

    Kansas City Chiefs at New England Patriots (-7)

    New England is coming off a historic Super Bowl comeback, rallying from a 28-3 deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in overtime and cash as a 3-point favorite. In fact, the Patriots were tops in the league SU and ATS in 2016, going 17-2 SU and an equally superb 16-3 ATS, winning their last 10 SU while covering in nine of those contests.

    Kansas City won the AFC West last year on a tiebreaker with the Oakland Raiders, earning a first-round bye. But the Chiefs’ playoff stint was short-lived, as they lost to Pittsburgh 18-16 laying 2.5 points at home to finish 12-5 SU, 9-8 ATS.

    Bookmaker.eu first posted NFL Week 1 lines back in April, and bettors have since pushed the defending champs to -8 for the Thursday night season opener.

    “Steady action on New England over the last few months has caused this number to tick upward, but I don’t expect it to be north of a touchdown come Thursday,” Cooley said. “The sharps are likely going to wait and see how high the public can push it, and then start picking off the numbers. (Chiefs coach) Andy Reid is great with time to prepare, and I wouldn’t be surprised one bit at an outright upset.”

    Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers (-3)

    A couple of perennial NFC powerhouses collide in Week 1 at Lambeau Field. Green Bay won its last six regular-season games in 2016 to claim the NFC North, then made a run to the conference title game before getting dumped at Atlanta 44-21 as a 6.5-point pup. The Pack finished the season 12-7 SU (11-7-1 ATS).

    Seattle (11-5-2 SU, 9-9 ATS) won the NFC West in 2016, then rolled Detroit 26-6 as an 8-point favorite on wild-card weekend. But like Green Bay, the Seahawks’ season ended at the hands of Atlanta, 36-20 as a 6.5-point road pup.

    Bookmaker.eu’s opening line of Green Bay -3 was up to 3.5 most of the past couple of weeks, but dropped back to 3 Saturday.

    “We’ve seen smart money on the ‘dog side in the last 24 hours, so we are back to the opener,” Cooley said. “It’s going to be the afternoon game every bettor tunes in to, and more than likely as we move toward Sunday, we’ll need the Seahawks to come out on top. Really looking forward to this one to get an early gauge on these elite teams.”

    New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys (-6.5)

    Dallas is currently embroiled in Ezekiel Elliott’s appeal of a six-game suspension, hoping to have the star running back on the field for this NFC East prime-time showdown on Sunday night. Behind Elliott and rookie QB Dak Prescott last season, the Cowboys had an 11-game winning streak and covered the first nine of those. Dallas earned a first-round playoff bye, but finished 13-4 SU (10-7 ATS) after a 34-31 loss to Green Bay giving 5.5 points at home in the divisional round.

    New York went 11-5 SU (9-6-1 ATS) in the 2016 regular season to nab a wild-card berth, then lost at Green Bay 38-13 as a 5-point dog.

    Bookmaker.eu opened Dallas at -6.5. That number is down to 3.5 and could be headed lower still.

    “This line is off the board now, as we continue to wait for news on one key injury and one key suspension,” Cooley said, pointing not only to Elliott’s status, but that of Giants wideout Odell Beckham (ankle). “Professional bettors came out early and often for this one, as this number dipped down to -3.5 prior to the unknown status of Beckham and Elliott. If Elliott is in fact out for Week 1, we will likely reopen at -3. The public will be all over Dallas, no matter who is playing.”

    Oakland Raiders at Tennessee Titans (+1.5)

    Oakland had a stout 2016 regular season, going 12-4 SU (10-6 ATS), but quarterback Derek Carr broke his leg in the second-to-last game. That was key to the Raiders losing their regular-season finale at Denver, which relegated them to a wild-card berth and a road playoff game. They subsequently lost at Houston 27-14 getting 4 points.

    Tennessee went 9-7 SU (7-9 ATS) last year, winning four of its last five to tie Houston atop the mediocre AFC South. But the Titans lost the tiebreaker and therefore stayed home for the playoffs. Coincidentally, the same week Carr broke his leg, Titans QB Marcus Mariota also suffered a broken leg.

    Both QBs are back at the helm for this season opener, but bettors are leaning on Mariota, with this game jumping the fence from Oakland -1.5 to Tennessee -2.

    “A big swing in this one, as the Titans have gone from ‘dogs to favorites, and it’s all sharp money shaping this one,” Cooley said. “The ticket count on Oakland is higher, but the money on Tennessee is very heavy. We do expect this to come back down before reaching the key number, but unless we see a lot of square Raider money this weekend, we’ll need the visitor in a big way.”

    TNF - Chiefs at Patriots
    September 6, 2017


    Kansas City at New England (-9, 48.5), 8:30 pm ET, NBC/NFLN

    Nine years ago on the exact same date as Thursday's season opener, the Patriots opened the season against the Chiefs at Gillette Stadium and saw disaster strike almost immediately. Tom Brady suffered a season-ending ACL tear when Kansas City safety Bernard Pollard took out his knee in the first half, resulting in the only games he's missed since 2002 not related to Deflategate.

    If not for eerie similarities between today and 2008, this game would be more easily billed as a potential AFC Championship preview given how stacked the Chiefs look coming off a 12-4 season. They finished with the second-best record in the conference behind the 14-2 Patriots but never ran into them in the playoffs, lasting only a single round following an 18-16 divisional playoff loss to Pittsburgh. Although Kansas City cut top receiver Jeremy Maclin and will be without top running back Spencer Ware for the season after he tore his PCL in the third preseason game, there are still plenty of weapons for New England to be concerned with.

    Travis Kelce has emerged as a Rob Gronkowski type and has managed to stay healthy enough to replace him as the NFL's most productive tight end, leading the league in receiving yards and yards after catch while finishing second with 85 receptions. Tyreek Hill's speed makes him a dangerous weapon who scored 12 touchdowns last season as an electric return man and emerging receiver. Rookie Kareem Hunt, versatile Charcandrick West and veteran import C.J. Spiller are in the mix to help replace Ware, so Andy Reid will have plenty of options to try and trouble a Patriots defense that struggled some in the preseason and saw LB Shea McClellin and DB/KR Cyrus Jones join receiver Julian Edelman in being lost for the season.

    Despite those injuries, the defending champion Patriots' hold on the favorite's role entering this season has strengthened following the preseason. Rob Gronkowski looks to be 100 percent and newly acquired receiver Brandin Cooks should be a valuable weapon whose role likely increases with Edelman out of the equation. James White, Mike Gillislee, Rex Burkhead and Dion Lewis are all on board as backfield options, so replacing LeGarrette Blount should also be manageable for Bill Belichick.

    Even replacing Brady, as Belichick managed to do to the tune of a 3-1 start during last season's suspension, hasn't proven too daunting a task for the Pats of late. Unless he's out there mopping up after a blowout, New England doesn't want to see backup Jimmy Garoppolo doing anything but holding a clipboard. Brady had a productive preseason, throwing three touchdowns and completing 75 percent of his 24 passes. His 10 yards per attempt ranked among the highest in the league.

    Alex Smith was inconsistent, but still easily held off the challenge of first-round pick Patrick Mahomes II. The Chiefs generated big plays on both sides of the ball in a 30-12 preseason Week 2 win against Cincinnati, then struggled mightily in Seattle in the dress rehearsal game, falling 26-13 after failing to execute on plays that were there to be made.

    The Patriots are 14-1 in home openers in the Belichick/Brady era, while Belichick is 13-4 with New England in Week 1 (15-7 overall). Andy Reid has won three of four openers since joining Kansas City and won four of his last five with Philadelphia, so there's little doubt both teams should be prepared to get things started.

    Kansas City Chiefs

    Season win total: 9 (Over -120, Under +100)
    Odds to win AFC West: 2/1 to 9/4
    Odds to win AFC: 10/1 to 12/1
    Odds to win Super Bowl: 20/1 to 25/1

    New England Patriots
    Season win total: 12.5 (Over +100, Under -120)
    Odds to win AFC East: 1/14 to 1/25
    Odds to win AFC: 3/1 to 5/4
    Odds to win Super Bowl: 6/1 to 11/4

    LINE MOVEMENT


    The Patriots may as well have already won their division as far as the odds are concerned since they're a wild 1-to-25, which is almost as amusing as the Jets going from 100-to-1 to 200-to-1 to win the AFC East before playing a game that counts in the standings. Since 2003, New England has prevailed 13 of 14 times, with the lone outlier coming in '08 after Brady was lost for the season and Matt Cassel was pressed into duty.

    Kansas City has the second-best odds to win the AFC West, placed behind favored Oakland (5/4) and ahead of Denver and San Diego (9/2). Considering the Chiefs have won 22 of their last 26 regular-season games, a projected win total placed below double-digits raised a few eyebrows. Between the loss of Ware and their inconsistent preseason, the Chiefs have seen their conference and Super Bowl future odds become more longer overthe last few weeks.

    As far as this matchup is concerned, the Patriots are currently laying 9 points in this first contest after the line initially opened at 7 and hovered at 7.5. The total opened at 49.5 but is set at 48.5 at many books as of Wednesday afternoon. Weather conditions are supposed to be clear and perfect for football.

    INJURY CONCERNS


    Kelce made this week's injury report due to a calf injury but was removed and is expected to play without limitations. The news isn't as positive on guard Parker Ehringer, who was downgraded to doubtful along with new linebacker Reggie Ragland. DT Bennie Logan (knee) and kicker Cairo Santos (groin) are also expected to play.

    The Patriots have seen speedy WR Malcolm Mitchell limited by a knee injury throughout camp, so we'll see whether he can be a factor. The Patriots traded for WR Philip Dorsett from the Colts and also envision a larger role for Danny Amendola. Backup offensive tackle Cameron Fleming returned to practice but is uncertain here. Safety Nate Ebner is also questionable for New England.

    RECENT MEETINGS (New England 3-2 SU, 3-2 ATS last five; UNDER 3-2)


    1/16/16 New England 27-20 vs. Kansas City (NE -5.5, 43)
    9/29/14 Kansas City 41-14 vs. New England (NE -3, 46)
    11/21/11 New England 34-3 vs. Kansas City (NE -17, 47)
    9/7/08 New England 17-10 vs. Kansas City (NE -16, 43.5)
    11/27/05 Kansas City 26-16 vs. New England (KC -3, 51)

    PATRIOTS AS A HOME FAVORITE

    Since losing to Seattle at Foxboro in Week 10, New England is a perfect 5-0 SU/ATS at home, including playoff wins over the Texans and Steelers. They're averaging 33.4 points in those wins. Both of the Patriots' losses last season came as a home favorite.

    CHIEFS AS A ROAD UNDERDOG

    Kansas City was a road 'dog only four times last season and won three of those instances outright, carrying a streak into 2017. The Chiefs beat the Panthers, Broncos and Falcons in a four game streatch from mid-November to early December in 2016. The Chiefs haven't been this heavy an underdog since Week 2 of the '14 season when they covered at Denver in a 24-17 loss as a 13-point underdog. The last meeting between these teams saw Kansas City in this role in the 2015 Divisional playoffs. New England won and covered.

    Tolzien ready to take over as Colts' QB
    September 6, 2017


    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Scott Tolzien had a whole offseason to get acclimated to his job description and his new duties as the Indianapolis Colts' starting quarterback.

    It still sounds a little strange.

    On Sunday in Los Angeles against the Rams, Tolzien will replace Andrew Luck in Indy's lineup, becoming only the fourth Colts' quarterback since 1998 to start on opening day.

    ''It is different, but surprisingly, it's not as different as you might think because you always prepare as if you're going to start,'' Tolzien said Wednesday. ''You just try to treat it like every other game and not make it any different.''

    But it is different.

    Over those past two decades, Luck or Peyton Manning started every Colts' season opener except 2011 when Kerry Collins got the job at Houston.

    Each of the other three starters was a top-five draft pick who came into the league with lofty expectations. Each eventually played in a conference championship game and Manning went on to reach four Super Bowls, winning two.

    Tolzien's resume is the total opposite.

    He signed with San Diego as an undrafted rookie in 2011, was claimed off waivers by the San Francisco 49ers just before the season opener that season, wound up on the Green Bay Packers practice squad in 2013 and eventually signed with the Colts as an unrestricted free agent in 2016.

    In six NFL seasons, Tolzien is 0-2-1 as a starter and has thrown almost four times as many interceptions (seven) as touchdowns (two).

    Still, the former Wisconsin quarterback insists the extra snaps he's taken this spring and summer have given him a critical boost of confidence.

    ''He understands what the circumstances are, we all do,'' coach Chuck Pagano said. ''All Scott needs to worry about is good communication, good identification, get us in the right play, accuracy, make great decisions, protect the ball in the pocket, keep two hands on it and you can't worry about who's trotting out there. He just needs to focus on playing fundamental football.''

    How long Tolzien remains in this role isn't clear.

    Luck was activated from the physically unable to perform list Saturday, but has not practiced with his teammates since undergoing January surgery to repair a partially torn labrum in his throwing shoulder.

    With Luck out, Tolzien worked almost exclusively with the starting offense during all of the team's offseason workouts, all of training camp and the entire preseason.

    ''I want to make sure when we get Andrew back he can practice every day,'' general manager Chris Ballard said Monday. ''It'll be a little bit of a process to get him to that, but we will. We don't want to jeopardize a little short term here over the long haul. Andrew is a young player still, and we've got to have a long-term view here of where we're going.''

    Pagano doesn't have a lot of other options right now, either.

    Tolzien's backup is Jacoby Brissett, who was acquired in a trade from New England on Saturday and is cramming to learn the playbook. The only other quarterback in town is Phillip Walker, an undrafted rookie who was re-signed to the practice squad Sunday after spending training camp with the Colts.

    And when Tolzien steps onto the field Sunday, he'll be working behind yet another reconstructed offensive line.

    Starting center Ryan Kelly (foot surgery) is expected to be replaced by undrafted rookie Deyshawn Bond. Last year's left guard, Jack Mewhort, has moved to right guard and last year's right guard, Denzelle Good, has moved to right tackle. Jeremy Vujnovich, who started each of the previous three seasons on practice squads, will get the starting nod at left guard. Longtime starting left tackle Anthony Castonzo is the only lineman to retain his old spot.

    But none of that matters to Tolzien, who is simply trying to heed Pagano's advice by staying focused on football.

    ''I guess it's kind of like any parent would tell their kid - prepare for it, work hard,'' Tolzien said. ''And enjoy it.''

    Notes: Safety Malik Hooker and converted cornerback T.J. Green were not limited in practice after returning from shoulder injuries. ... Mewhort, who has been limited this summer after returning from season-ending knee surgery, said he feels ''good'' and expects to play the way he did before last year's injury. ... The Colts announced Wednesday that they had agreed to a 10-year deal, starting in 2018, to hold training camp in nearby Westfield at the 400-acre Grand Park Sports Campus.

    Chiefs looking to make statement against champion Patriots
    September 6, 2017


    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The New England Patriots are set to kick off another season in the afterglow of a Super Bowl title.

    Seven months after completing the largest comeback in Super Bowl history, the Patriots will raise the franchise's fifth championship banner prior to Thursday night's season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    It's what's come to be a familiar sight ever since Bill Belichick and Tom Brady captured their first Lombardi Trophy together in 2001.

    Trying to spoil this latest party will be a Kansas City team that has been chasing its own post-championship commemoration since the franchise won its lone Super Bowl in 1970.

    The Chiefs were the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs last season before having their postseason run truncated by an 18-16 loss to Pittsburgh in the divisional round.

    The Patriots are 4-0 in season openers following a Super Bowl win, but have vast respect for a Kansas City team that has been responsible for some sour Patriots memories during the Belichick-Brady era.

    The previous time Brady opened a season at home against the Chiefs in 2008, it ended with him limping off the field with a season-ending knee injury . Then in 2014, Kansas City flatly embarrassed New England 41-14 in Arrowhead Stadium.

    ''I respect the way they play. They're always tough. We've always had great battles with them,'' Belichick said. ''I can't think of too many teams that have handled us better than the way they handled us in 2014.''

    But that win was Reid's lone head-to-head victory against Belichick.

    ''He does a heck of a job with his team,'' Reid said. ''To be able to sustain as long as he's sustained is really something. That's a phenomenal thing in this profession.''

    Professional respect aside, the matchup will be an early glimpse of how formidable the Patriots are after only losing a few pieces off last season's roster. They will reveal a new-look running game after not re-signing LeGarrette Blount, last season's rushing touchdowns leader. In addition, receiving stalwart Julian Edelman is out for the season following a preseason knee injury.

    And on defense they're without a dedicated edge rusher with Chris Long leaving in free agency and Rob Ninkovich retiring. But several familiar and important contributors remain.

    ''When the schedule comes out, you've got this first game that is the only one you're really looking at and all the preparation, everything's building for this week,'' Brady said. ''It goes for both sides. I'm sure they're looking forward to it, too.''

    Here are some things to watch for:

    EAGER DEFENSE:
    As much continuity as New England will have on the field, the Chiefs will trot out an equally stout defense that had a league-best 33 takeaways in 2016. They're eager to see how it fares against a now 40-year-old Brady and the defending champs.

    ''Nothing is downplayed,'' safety Eric Berry said of the matchup. ''We have our own perspective in the building among each other and we have big expectations for this season, but it takes place one game at a time. We are going to put everything we have into this game and this game plan and take it from there.''

    R-E-S-P-E-C-T:
    Reid and Belichick have matched wits plenty of times over the years. Belichick has the most wins among active NFL coaches with 263, while Reid is second with 184.

    GRONK RETURNS: Being a spectator over the final eight games of the regular season and playoffs was not fun for Gronkowski. While rehabbing from back surgery this offseason, he also adopted the strict diet regimen that Brady says has helped keep him healthy since the 2008 injury. Gronk says he's eager to show he still has the skills that made him one of the most dominating tight ends in football.

    ''It's been a while, and I just can't wait to get out there,'' he said.

    ROOKIE WATCH:
    The Chiefs planned to use Spencer Ware and Kareem Hunt in tandem at running back, but Ware went down with a season-ending injury in a preseason game at Seattle. So it's up to Hunt, a third-round draft pick, to carry the load for Kansas City. Charcandrick West and C.J. Spiller will give him a breather.

    ''We put a good amount on his plate,'' Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy said. ''So far, he's done a great job with it.''

    NFL notebook: Dolphins-Bucs moved to Week 11
    September 6, 2017


    Citing player and fan safety concerns, the NFL moved the Miami Dolphins-Tampa Bay Buccaneers game scheduled for Sunday to Nov. 19.

    Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla., sits in the projected path of Hurricane Irma, the Category 5 storm expected to make landfall in the early morning hours Sunday.

    The Week 1 regular-season opener for both teams was scheduled for 1 p.m. ET until the NFL announced Tuesday the game would not be played Sunday in Miami.

    Over the weekend, multiple alternatives were on the table, including playing the game Friday night.

    Other contingency plans were considered, including a neutral site game, but complications of getting the teams safely in and out of Florida and removing a home game from the Dolphins' schedule made for strong arguments to postpone the contest until Week 11.

    --Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott "seems very focused" a day after getting the news he is eligible to play in Sunday night's season opener against the New York Giants even though an arbitrator upheld his six-game suspension handed down by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

    Elliott was on the practice field Wednesday for the only padded practice of the week, but his eligibility to play beyond Week 1 remained in question.

    "He seems very focused, locked in on meetings, the walk-through," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett told reporters. "We'll have a good practice today. He's done an excellent job in his preparation."

    Elliott's six-game suspension for violation of the NFL's domestic-violence policy was upheld by league arbitrator Harold Henderson on Tuesday. The second-year running back will be allowed to play Sunday because of the timing of the announcement.

    --A joint review by the NFL and NFL Players Association determined New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady did not suffer a concussion in 2016.

    The league and players' union reviewed Brady's medical records with his permission as well as the records of the Patriots' medical staff and independent concussion spotters. The review announced Wednesday also confirmed Brady did not report any signs or symptoms related to a concussion last season.

    Brady's wife, Gisele Bundchen, said in May on "CBS This Morning" that her husband suffered a concussion last season and in other years.

    --Six practices, no limits: Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco claims he's ready for the Cincinnati Bengals and Week 1 of the regular season after idling for more than a month to calm a balky back.

    "It's not ideal," Flacco said Wednesday. "I feel good now and I'm ready to go."

    General manager Ozzie Newsome and head coach John Harbaugh followed medical instruction to give Flacco ample rest to avoid dealing with his back injury into the regular season. The injury report and injured list dominated storylines for the Ravens in 2016. Losing Flacco for an extended period would be catastrophic for a team without a proven backup to take the reins.

    -- Quarterback Tyrod Taylor cleared concussion protocol and will start in the regular-season opener for Buffalo Bills against the New York Jets on Sunday.

    "We expect him to start on Sunday," Bills coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday morning.

    Taylor was sidelined Aug. 26, when he sustained a concussion against the Baltimore Ravens.

    --An impressive preseason from No. 2 overall pick Mitchell Trubisky forced the Chicago Bears to promote him from third on the depth chart.

    "He's one play away," offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said Wednesday in confirming Trubisky had leapfrogged Mark Sanchez to become Mike Glennon's top backup at the position.

    Trubisky completed 67 percent of his passes in the preseason and showed more mobility and overall athletic ability than some draft evaluators credited him for; even head coach John Fox, not prone to hyperbole, said the team was impressed.

    --Former All-Pro linebacker Ray Lewis claims the Baltimore Ravens were close to signing Colin Kaepernick before the free agent quarterback's girlfriend posted a "racist" tweet featuring Lewis and team owner Steve Bisciotti.

    Lewis made his comments on Showtime's "Inside the NFL" on Tuesday night. He is a new regular analyst on the weekly program.

    "We were going to close the deal to sign him," Lewis said of his former team. "Steve Bisciotti said, 'I want to hear Colin Kaepernick speak to let me know that he wants to play football.' And it never happens because that picture comes up the next day."

    Lewis described the Aug. 2 tweet by Nessa Diab as "racist" that compared a picture of Lewis hugging Bisciotti to a scene from "Django Unchained." In the movie scene, actor Samuel L. Jackson portrayed a loyal house slave held by Leonardo DiCaprio's cruel plantation owner character.

    --J.J. Watt's online fundraiser to aid flood victims of Hurricane Harvey is now over $27 million and the Houston Texans All-Pro defensive end says Sunday's season opener is "going to be special."

    A $5 million donation from the Texas-based H-E-B grocery chain on Wednesday is the largest to the online campaign started by Watt, continuing to surpass his target goals from more than 189,000 donors at YouCaring.com.

    H-E-B president Scott McClelland presented Watt with the check on behalf of company owner Charles Butt.

    "There are no words to describe when someone steps up to the plate like this," Watt said.

    --Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett said Las Vegas police threatened to "blow his head off" for "doing nothing more than simply being a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time."

    In a social media post, Bennett said the incident occurred after the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight in Las Vegas on Aug. 26, when police detained him after what sounded like gunshots in a crowded area.

    Bennett said uniformed police pointed guns at him and one officer, with his gun drawn, warned him that he would "blow my f------ head off" if he moved, Bennett wrote. Another officer jammed his knee into Bennett's back and handcuffed him, according to Bennett's account.

    Upon confirming his identify, Bennett said he was released from a police car with no explanation and "without any legitimate justification for the Officers' abusive conduct."

    --Twenty-one game officials attained full-time status in a landmark move by the NFL designed to be a pilot program for expansion if successful.

    The league dictated in a decision announced Wednesday that officiating must be the "top professional priority" of all full-time NFL game officials, but other jobs are still permitted. For example, Walt Anderson, one of four referees granted full-time status, remains the Big 12 Conference officiating coordinator.

    According to the NFL Referees Association, the benefit of full-time officials would be in the offseason, when additional training and on-field work could be done to incorporate rules changes and address new or added emphasis to existing game measures.

    --Rookie defensive end Myles Garrett was unable to finish Wednesday's practice with the Cleveland Browns due to an ankle injury and his status for Sunday's regular-season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers is uncertain.

    The No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 draft dealt with lower leg and foot issues at Texas A&M and tweaked his left foot this summer.

    With the Aggies, Garrett had a high ankle sprain in 2016 and spent time in a walking boot.

    --New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. did not practice Wednesday because of his lingering ankle injury, but he still hopes to play in Sunday night's regular-season opener against the Dallas Cowboys.

    "Wouldn't count it out," Beckham said regarding the possibility he will play Sunday.

    Beckham was present at practice Wednesday but did not participate. He did some light jogging without a brace, and said his left ankle is feeling better.

    He said he would not play if he needed a brace or extensive taping. Beckham assessed his status as day-to-day.

    --The Cincinnati Bengals bolstered their defensive line by acquiring defensive tackle Christian Ringo on waivers from the Green Bay Packers.

    Ringo, 25, played eight games for the Packers in 2016, totaling seven tackles and a forced fumble. The former sixth-round pick from Louisiana-Lafayette spent the entire 2015 campaign on the Green Bay practice squad.

    Ringo joins a defensive tackle group in Cincinnati that also includes Geno Atkins, Andrew Billings, Ryan Glasgow and Pat Sims.

    Jags QB Bortles (wrist) on injury report
    September 6, 2017


    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles showed up on the injury report Wednesday with a right wrist injury.

    Bortles said after practice that his wrist ''feels good, good to go, 100 percent.''

    Bortles has started 45 consecutive games for the Jaguars, playing though several nagging injuries. Neither Bortles nor coach Doug Marrone mentioned the wrist injury during training camp or the preseason, although Marrone did say he felt like Bortles had a ''tired arm'' in mid-August.

    Bortles was briefly benched after the second exhibition, but was named the starter for the opener a week later.

    The third overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft is entering the final year of his rookie contract, making this a make-or-break season for the former UCF standout.

    Falcons become butt of the joke after Super Bowl collapse
    September 6, 2017


    FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Hey, did you hear the one about Choking Awareness Day?

    It's held on 3-28.

    Ba dum tsh!

    Of course, that punch line is a punch to the gut for the Atlanta Falcons, referring to the score late in the third quarter of last season's Super Bowl when it looked as though they would finally win their first championship.

    Then, as they remember all too painfully in these parts, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots scored 31 consecutive points to pull off the greatest comeback in the title game's 51-year history, winning 34-28 in overtime.

    Brady collected his fifth ring.

    The Falcons became the butt of the joke .

    Lots and lots of jokes.

    Even now, as Atlanta prepares to open the season Sunday with a road game against the Chicago Bears, there's no sign of the jabs letting up.

    Just last weekend, when Texas A&M squandered a 34-point lead in the second half and lost 45-44 to UCLA , a Lou Holtz parody account on Twitter claimed the Aggies were unveiling a new logo. Naturally, it was the Falcons' distinctive emblem.

    In New Orleans, home of the Falcons' biggest rival, the Dirty Coast shop on Magazine Street has been offering T-shirts with a scoreboard-like design ''28-3, 3rd, 2:12'' - when Atlanta was still up by 25. As if that wasn't enough to bring a smile to Saints' fans, the store also has been raising money to put up a billboard with the same design outside Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the Falcons' new stadium.

    ''I don't pay attention to that,'' Atlanta linebacker Deion Jones said with a shrug. ''It happened. We can't go back and change it. So, I mean, you lick your wounds a little bit, then you have to get on with your life.''

    Atlanta coach Dan Quinn has pushed his team to look forward, not backward.

    He keeps insisting there will be no hangover from the devastating loss.

    ''When we came back, I knew there was going to be questions like, `OK, how much more work do we have to do to talk about last year?''' Quinn said. ''I got my answer pretty early in training camp when I saw us go for it in the biggest way.''

    But he understands that plenty of Atlanta fans are a bit sensitive to all the barbs.

    ''I love our fans,'' Quinn said. ''For them to get (ticked off) about it, that's cool with me.''

    That means you, Peyton Manning, who got in on the act at the ESPY Awards.

    ''I believe in the Falcons. I believe in (MVP quarterback) Matt Ryan and Dan Quinn, and I know in my heart the Falcons will be back,'' the former NFL great said, setting up his zinger. ''I wanted the Falcons to hear that from me now, at the beginning of the show, because they're going to stop paying attention three-quarters of the way in.''

    Even two other NFC South rivals, teams the Falcons will face twice this season, couldn't resist the chance to pile on.

    On March 28 - yep, 3-28 - the Carolina Panthers tweeted a picture of four players. But only two were tagged: No. 3 (Derek Anderson) and No. 28 (Johnathan Stewart). Clearly, that was no coincidence, which became apparent when the tweet was quietly deleted a few hours later.

    A couple of months later, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sent out a seemingly innocuous tweet pitching their team-logo fidget spinners. When the Falcons' account chimed in with a GIF of cornerback Desmond Trufant asking if the Bucs were ''nervous about something,'' the Bucs quickly responded by tweeting a picture of cornerback Vernon Hargreaves (No. 28) celebrating with quarterback Jameis Winston (No. 3).

    Tampa Bay coach Dirk Koetter, a former Falcons' offensive coordinator, wound up apologizing for that little back-and-forth.

    No need, said Falcons safety Ricardo Allen.

    This team can take it.

    ''It does nothing for us,'' he said Wednesday. ''This world is so lost in staying in the past. ... Yes, we lost that game. They won that game. That's last year. This is a new year. This team, we have the mindset of next-play mentality.

    ''If you have a bad play, OK, next play. They're going to make plays. Bad game? Next game.''

    Ryan, in a way, addressed the issue head-on by taking part in a Gatorade television commercial that featured, among others, Michael Jordan and Serena Williams talking about their biggest disappointments. Titled ''The Secret to Victory,'' it ends with a recreation of the Falcons quarterback dejectedly leaving the field after the Super Bowl, a voiceover describing his ''utter disbelief,'' before he stares into the camera and says one word.

    Defeat.

    Then it shows Ryan getting back to work, throwing one pass after another on the practice field, ending with the mantra, ''Make Defeat Your Fuel.''

    ''It's about moving forward,'' Ryan said. ''To me, that's what made sense. You learn from all these things throughout your life. Different things happen to you along the way. You learn from them and try to use them as motivation.''

    And the jokes? Is he using those as motivation?

    ''No,'' Ryan shot back, managing a weak smile. ''I don't pay much attention to it.''

    QB Brian Hoyer says he's having his most fun ever with 49ers
    September 6, 2017

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Brian Hoyer has bounced between seven teams during nine seasons in the NFL handling a variety of different roles.

    From clipboard holder in New England for Tom Brady to start his career to being a late-season fill-in for Arizona to a stint as a starter in Cleveland that was derailed by injuries to opportunities to share time as starter in Houston and Chicago.

    His situation this year in San Francisco is somewhat unique for him. He was signed as a free agent in March and immediately named the starter and the team hasn't wavered since in the commitment to Hoyer for 2017.

    ''This has been the most fun I've ever had playing football,'' Hoyer said Wednesday. ''It's the most comfortable I've ever been. Being able to come in day one and kind of be handed the reins and to having the control and implement the offense and do those things and get all the reps, I think it's been huge. For me, I feel really good about where we are heading into Week 1 and we've just got to keep improving.''

    Hoyer gets his first opportunity with the Niners in Sunday's season opener at home against Carolina.

    Both he and the 49ers believe he is better equipped to handle the starting role now than he was in 2014 and `15 when he won training camp battles in Cleveland and Houston to become the starter before giving the job up during those seasons.

    ''I just think he's been through more. He's more battle-tested,'' said San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan, who was Hoyer's offensive coordinator in 2014 in Cleveland. ''His ability is the same. I just think Brian's in a good place. He's had his ups and downs. I think he's got to the point where he realizes he can't control everything and he just works as hard as he can and doesn't get too high or too low. I think he believes in himself and I think it's real because he's developed a confidence through adversity, through overcoming it. I just see a more confident guy who is up for anything.''

    Reuniting with Shanahan has helped the cause for Hoyer. He made his most career starts with Shanahan when he had 13 for Cleveland in 2014 and led the NFL with 13.7 yards per completion.

    Hoyer did have some struggles that season despite helping the Browns win seven of his 13 starts. He completed only 55.3 percent of his passes and had more interceptions (13) than TD passes (12). But he also gained a trust in Shanahan that made for an easy decision of where he wanted to go this offseason.

    ''That was a big reason why I came here. I knew, having played for Kyle before, how great he was piecing things together,'' Hoyer said. ''Then, you watch him go to Atlanta and do the same thing, even to a bigger stage really, taking them all the way to the Super Bowl. For me it was probably the deciding factor coming out here was just to play for Kyle and knowing that his scheme and the way he game plans games and defenses, that was what I wanted to be a part of.''

    Shanahan's offense with the Falcons thrived against Carolina's defense a year ago. Matt Ryan threw for 503 yards and four TDs in the first meeting and then completed 82 percent of his passes the next meeting as Atlanta swept the season series.

    While Shanahan won't have the luxury of having Ryan, Julio Jones, Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman in this year's matchup, the Panthers aren't overlooking Hoyer.

    ''He's a consistent football player,'' coach Ron Rivera said. ''That's the biggest thing you look for is a guy who can manage a game and if he has to, win a game for you. ... He's one of those guys who has played very consistent throughout his career. This is a guy who has the ability to come in and help the team.''

    NOTES: TE George Kittle (hamstring), S Jimmie Ward (hamstring) ad DE Aaron Lynch (back) were all limited in practice and their status for this week is unknown. Undrafted rookie Lorenzo Jerome and Jaquiski Tartt are competing to start at safety if Ward can't play. ... Shanahan said he will rotate captains each week early in the season before naming permanent ones later in the year.
