  • Denver Broncos outside linebacker Bradley Chubb observed practice, NFL Network's James Palmer reported. Palmer added Vic Fangio said Chubb's off day is a natural progression with his recovery and where they thought it would be now as he continues to work his way back from his ACL injury. Fangio also said he believes Chubb will be "pretty damn close" to 100% by Week 1. Palmer also reported that guard Graham Glasgow will miss the next few days, but Denver doesn't believe it's a long-term injury. Glasgow exited Saturday's practice after tweaking his ankle. The team also announced the signing of linebacker Mark Barron. Linebacker Justin Strnad was placed on the reserve/injured list.
  • Hours after the Carolina Panthers announced that linebacker Andre Smith, a seventh-round pick in 2018, was being waived, the team called an audible and opted to instead trade him to the Bills in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2023, Rapoport reported. The team confirmed the move.
