On Tuesday, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance told reporters he'd be cleared soon after undergoing two surgeries on his broken ankle. Lance is expected to be a full-go by OTAs. This is good news for the Niners, who are expected to be rid of Jimmy Garoppolo soon and have Brock Purdy out for at least six months.
Speaking of 49ers QBs, rookie Brock Purdy is currently awaiting second opinions on his injured UCL - a repair vs. reconstruction surgery will determine the time he will be able to return to football activities. Purdy told reporters on Tuesday that he will make a final decision soon.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray suffered a non-contact knee injury on the third play during Monday Night Football.
Murray was in the middle of a scramble when his knee appeared to buckle. (I'm not going to post the video, but you can look for it if you want to see it.) Murray was carted off the field, surrounded by teammates, and quickly ruled questionable to return. Murray was later ruled out by the team in the second quarter with a knee injury.
Backup QB Colt McCoy replaced him.
Reports began to emerge throughout the game that Murray had torn his ACL. Murray will have an MRI on Tuesday to confirm.

The Cleveland Browns ended their four-game losing streak against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football. While Cincy was missing star wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase, the offensive line was god awful and Joe Burrow had a horrible night as a result. The Browns sacked Burrow five times, intercepted him once and forced a fumble.
On the flip side, Browns QB Jacoby Brissett ran for a touchdown and threw for 278 yards, while Nick Chubb and Amari Cooper both had highlight-reel days.

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was the better QB during Thursday Night Football, but only if you point to the second half. After a shaky start, Jackson ended up going 27-of-38 passes for 238 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-22 win over Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
And it's not a Lamar Jackson Game without a Lamar Jackson Run.

The first touchdown of the night went to quarterback Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears. Fields ran for a three-yard touchdown after going 3-for-3 and 39 yards on their second drive.
New England Patriots starting quarterback Mac Jones was promptly benched after throwing an interception in the second quarter, and was replaced by Bailey Zappe who, you guessed it, immediately threw a touchdown pass. Zappe took the Pats' offense right down the field, going 3-for-3 for 54 yards and capped off by a touchdown to Jakobi Meyers.
Zappe continued to throw absolute dimes, with this one in the second quarter - a 43-yarder to DaVante Parker, to set up the touchdown to give the Patriots the 10-0 lead.
The Bears (surprisingly?) ended up winning this one, forcing four turnovers and giving Bill Belichick the business. One of the more impressive turnovers was this grab by Jaquan Brisker.

Thanks for reading! There was another school shooting on Monday at a high school in St. Louis. PLEASE VOTE.
While it was expected he'd return in Week 5, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott doesn't seem ready to see the field yet. Owner Jerry Jones spoke on Tuesday and stated that Prescott can't yet grip the football "well enough to play."
Prescott injured his thumb in Week One and has since had surgery. While he was eyeing a Week Five return, backup quarterback Cooper Rush has been holding down the fort quite well at the position and, therefore, shouldn't Rush it. Haha get it?
So, when will we see Dak Bak? (I need to stop with these puns.) I think Prescott will return when he is:
