Free agent OT Derek Newton worked out for the Jets on Tuesday.

Newton is a player everyone should be pulling for as he tries to become the first NFL player to return to action after tearing both patellar tendons on the same play. One source said Newton "looked good" at his tryout on Tuesday, but the two parties haven't signed a deal. If Newton is able to come back -- he might have a better shot at a return playing guard if he's less mobile -- in any capacity, it will be one of the biggest comeback stories of the season.

Washington Post's Mark Maske said one NFL source guesses the Seahawks will eventually be sold.

There hasn't been an announced inheritor of the Seahawks since Mr. Paul Allen wasn't married and didn't have any children. Some speculate that Allen's sister, Jody, could be the inheritor of the team, but it's unclear if she would have aspire to own and operate the team even if she were the inheritor. Regardless of the outcome, nothing is expected to act quickly.

Free agent LB Navorro Bowman worked out for the Browns, but they did not reach a deal.

It's been a quiet offseason for Bowman despite Pro Football Focus grading him highly against the run in 2017. The Browns scheduled the workout with Bowman after announcing that LB Joe Schobert "down for a little while."

Eagles DT Haloti Ngata (calf) is "likely to return" for Week 7 against the Panthers.

Ngata hasn't played since Week 4, but the Eagles seem comfortable that he will play on Sunday with just three active defensive tackles on the 53-man roster at the moment. Fletcher Cox and Treyvon Hester are the other two active interior defensive lineman.

Free agent CB Quinten Rollins worked out for the Eagles on Tuesday.

Rollins must be healthy again after suffering a hamstring injury in the Packers' preseason finale. The former second-rounder has tried out for the Bears, Jets, and Eagles in recent weeks. Rollins missed the end of last year with a torn Achilles.

Free agent WRs Corey Coleman and Rishard Matthews worked out for the Jets on Tuesday.

Coleman was cut twice by the Patriots in September and he's not a bet to make a 53-man roster anytime soon. Matthews is the better receiver of the two and would make sense from the Jets perspective given Quincy Enunwa's injury. The Jets also worked out RT Derek Newton (both knees) and RB Donnel Pumphrey.

Josh Allen (elbow) will miss at least the next two or three games and will be week to week after that.

A second opinion on his elbow from Dr. James Andrews confirmed that Allen has UCL damage to his throwing arm, but he will not need Tommy John surgery. Instead Allen will rest and rehab with the hope that he can return in about one month. With Allen out, the Bills can either start Nathan Peterman or Derek Anderson, who they signed just last week. Streaming defenses against this Bills offense is an attractive strategy.

Buccaneers re-signed LB Devante Bond.

Bond was waived by the Bucs with an injury settlement after suffering from plantar fasciitis in the preseason. Now that he's recovered, he's expected to compete for the strong-side linebacker job. Bond led the Bucs special-teams with 10 tackles last season.
Oct 16 - 6:30 PM

Greg Zuerlein (groin) will resume kicking for the Rams in Week 7 against the 49ers.

The Rams telegraphed Zuerlein's return by releasing Cairo Santos, and Santos confirmed his now ex-teammate's good health in a farewell tweet. Zuerlein is an elite K1 on a weekly basis.
Oct 16 - 5:52 PM

Eagles waived/injured DT Destiny Vaeao.

Vaeao's injury is unclear. He drew some preseason hype as a potential starter but ended up playing a modest 157 snaps through six games. He had been ineffective. Vaeao will revert to injured reserve once he clears waivers.
Oct 16 - 5:43 PM

ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports Devonta Freeman (injured reserve) will undergo groin surgery on Thursday.

Freeman injured both his foot and groin in his Week 5 return against the Steelers. He mulled playing through the groin issue but opted to go under the knife. He will be a candidate for return from injured reserve but must sit a minimum of eight weeks. Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith could form a near-even committee in Freeman's absence.
Oct 16 - 5:15 PM

Rams released K Cairo Santos.

Santos spent two games in L.A. His release should mean Greg Zuerlein is returning for Week 7 against the 49ers.

Speaking Tuesday, Jon Gruden gave Derek Carr a vote of confidence as the Raiders' quarterback.

"He is the strength of this football team," Gruden said. "He is on my watch. I said it when I got here, if he doesn't play well, I've failed." This goes beyond a normal coachspeak vote of confidence. Gruden seems completely sincere. Plus, the Raiders don't have a legitimate option behind Carr. Gruden has actually managed to dramatically increase both Carr's completion percentage and yards per attempt, but Carr has been a turnover machine and seemed to lack confidence at times. He was unspeakably bad in the Raiders' London loss to the Seahawks. The duo has two weeks to draw something up for the Colts in Week 8.

Ed Dickson (quad, NFI) will practice when the Seahawks come off their bye in Week 8 and could return against the Lions.

Speaking Tuesday, coach Pete Carroll apparently sounded more optimistic about Dickson's status than K.J. Wright's. With Nick Vannett dealing with a bulky back, Dickson's return would be a boost for the Seahawks' undermanned offense. Dickson would start out as a low-end TE2 in fantasy.
Oct 16 - 4:26 PM

Although WLB K.J. Wright (knee) will practice when the Seahawks come off their bye in Week 8, he is considered unlikely to return against the Lions.

Wright apparently had a setback sometime in September but has "had a couple really good days" of late, according to coach Pete Carroll. Wright "ran hard" in Week 6. He's week to week with perhaps Week 9 or 10 his most likely date for return.
