Brian Flores' playlist to start Dolphins practice Tuesday included at least seven consecutive Jay-Z songs, which was eye-opening given Kenny Stills' comments challenging the way the hip-hop mogul went about his partnership with the NFL. Among the songs were, "Show Me What You Got, " "Brooklyn We Go Hard," "Run This Town," and "99 Problems."

The Jets have signed LB Stephone Anthony, who was released Sunday by the Falcons. Anthony (6-3, 245) was the Saints' first-round pick in 2015. He was traded to the Dolphins in 2017 and played under Adam Gase. The Jets have been in the linebacker market since losing Avery Williamson last Thursday to a season-ending knee injury. In 50 games, he has 150 tackles and one sack. To make room for Anthony, they waived S Santos Ramirez.

Jerry Jones has not talked with Ezekiel Elliott since making his, “Zeke, who?” joke after the last preseason game, but he was not about to apologize for saying it after Elliott's agent, Rocky Arceneaux, told ESPN's Chris Mortensen that he and his client found the joke, “disrespectful.” Said Jones, “Look, I've earned the right with Zeke to joke. Period. I've earned it … Let me be real clear about it: I've earned that right to joke.”

Niners rookie receiver Jalen Hurd played just eight snaps against the Broncos on Monday night after scoring two touchdowns in the preseason opener. Coach Kyle Shanahan said Hurd dealt with some back stiffness in practice last week and again last night so they decided to limit him.

49ers RB Jerick McKinnon could be back in some individual drills this week as he's now more than two weeks removed from a platelet-rich plasma injection in his knee. Coach Kyle Shanahan said McKinnon won't participate in team drills since it's a short week but the hope is he will be able to do more next week.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday that center Weston Richburg, who is on the PUP list as he works back from a knee issue, is getting close and could be back to practice next week. Niners are hoping Richburg can do that and potentially even play in the preseason finale against the Chargers as a way to prepare for Week 1 against Tampa Bay.

The Jets claimed S Derrick Kindred on waivers from the Colts. He will get an opportunity to compete for the No. 4 safety job, behind Jamal Adams, Marcus Maye and Rontez Miles. Kindred played last season for DC Gregg Williams in Cleveland. He played a lot — 474 snaps on defense, 302 on special teams. A fourth-round pick in 2016, he has 148 tackles and two INTs.

Seahawks roster move: they've put guard Demetrius Knox, an undrafted free agent, on IR after he hurt his quad Sunday. Seattle signed guard Landon Turner, who has played in seven career games with one start (all with New Orleans in 2016). He was with Carolina this offseason.

No need to worry about Daniel Jones. He's already an expert at brushing off criticism and doubters.

Sean McVay said Tuesday that no timeline has been established for the return of linebacker Micah Kiser, who is scheduled to undergo surgery for a pec injury today. McVay called the injury "Pretty significant" and said that Kiser was "going to be out for awhile." The Rams will look to fill the position internally with Bryce Hager and other young backups. "To say that we're going to go outside to look for an answer right now wouldn't be accurate," McVay said.

Last week in Oxnard, Jaylon Smith was asked about his contract status and what he hoped for: “For me, I want to be a Cowboy,” Smith said. “I want to be a Cowboy for the rest of my life. Understanding what they've done for me and taking a chance, taking a risk and now they're getting a return on their investment. So it's a beautiful thing to be a Dallas Cowboy. I definitely want to make that happen for life.”

WR Demaryius Thomas, who took the practice field today in a jersey and helmet, has been activated from the physically unable to perform list. It's another step in his recovery from an Achilles tear in December. The Patriots have Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon, first-round pick N'Keal Harry, Thomas, Phillip Dorsett and undrafted free agent Jakobi Meyers atop the wide receiver depth chart, with four-year veteran Maurice Harris, 2018 sixth-round pick Braxton Berrios and longshots Ryan Davis, Gunner Olszweski and Damoun Patterson rounding things out. Cameron Meredith remains on the non-football injury list.

Wide receiver De'Anthony Thomas didn't just sign with the Chiefs and join them on the field in the middle of Tuesday's practice, but he took some snaps with the starters and even caught a long touchdown pass from Patrick Mahomes. Thomas played for the Chiefs for the last five seasons, catching 64 passes and scoring seven touchdowns. Thomas made his biggest mark covering kicks and it's likely no coincidence he returned to the Chiefs on the day they put another special teams star, Marcus Kemp, on injured reserve because of a knee injury. Thomas had each of the last two seasons ended early because of a broken leg. “The leg looks good,'' coach Andy Reid said. “That was a concern but he's done well with it. He's been working out, doing track workouts so he's in pretty good shape right now. He just jumped right in. He's ready to go. He knows all the plays.''

Bears guard Kyle Long is back at practice on Tuesday after he failed to make the trip to New York last week for fighting during a team scrimmage. Long will meet the media after today's practice.

Quite a journey for Jaylon Smith. After suffering a serious knee injury in the Fiesta Bowl while at Notre Dame and not knowing if he would be able to play football again to signing a contract extension with the Cowboys while under the team's control through 2020. Smith was set to be a restricted free agent after this season but the Cowboys opted to lock up a cornerstone piece to their defense. Next up for the Cowboys is two more members of the 2016 draft class: Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott.

The Cowboys have agreed to a contract extension with linebacker Jaylon Smith, according to sources. Smith was set to be a restricted free agent after this season but the Cowboys and his representatives started talks in the spring and they ramped up once camp began. Smith, a second-round pick in 2016, has made a tremendous comeback from a serious injury suffered at Notre Dame and has played in the last 32 games after not playing his rookie season. Now the Cowboys hope to sign Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper to deals at some point as well.

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said final determination will be made tonight and tomorrow, but it appears most of the team's starters will play against Miami on Thursday. Only starters Marrone ruled out are WR Marqise Lee (just off PUP this week), TE Geoff Swaim (foot) and DT Marcell Dareus (elbow). Jaguars should have their starting line working together for the first time since Week 2 of 2018 season with LT Cam Robinson and RT Jawaan Taylor expected to play. Others that won't play include RB Alfred Blue, LB Quincy Williams, TE Josh Oliver.

Jets RB Ty Montgomery wasn't comparing Sam Darnold to former teammate Aaron Rodgers, whom he considers one of the best QBs to ever play, but he said Darnold's ability to extend plays reminds him of Rodgers. "To be honest, there's a level of comfort for me, coming from Green Bay," he said. "With a guy like Aaron Rodgers, that was a lot of his bread and butter, extending plays." He said Darnold has that same skill. Montgomery said, "I'm always ready and I'm expecting Sam to be able to do anything with his arm."
