Coach confident in Tony Romo heading into Week 1
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:30 pm ET) Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said quarterback Tony Romo is ready to go for Week 1 against the 49ers after the team took a precautionary approach this preseason in his recovery from December back surgery.

"The thing I kept reminding Tony about as we went through this process starting all the way back in the spring is, the goal is to be ready for the 49ers -- Sept. 7 at our stadium against the 49ers," Garrett said, per the team's official website.

Garrett is pleased with how well Romo has progressed during the preseason.

"I think the last couple of weeks, I think we’ve seen Tony really be himself," he said. "He’s moved around in practice very spontaneously, made a lot of throws. He’s taken hits in games. He’s come back from all that stuff.

"He’s worked very hard to get himself to a point where he’s 100 percent with his back. It’s going to be a work in progress for him just like it would be for anybody coming off of any kind of injury."


Steelers expect to see Johnny Manziel in Week 1
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:26 pm ET) Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that he expects Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel to play in Sunday's game between the two teams in some capacity, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

"We've got a great deal of respect for Johnny Manziel and his talents," Tomlin said. "They didn't draft him in the first round to watch. We fully expect them to utilize him in some capacity in this football game.''

The Browns named Brian Hoyer the starter during the preseason, but the team has also discussed whether they should use a package of plays for the rookie quarterback.

"We're proceeding to prepare for both of those guys,'' Tomlin said. "We're anticipating them utilizing both, in some capacity. That's the appropriate approach for us to take. I think all of the things they ask (Manziel) to do, Brian Hoyer is fully capable of doing it, and I'm sure they're going to do it with him as well. I just think when you've got a talent like Johnny Manziel, you're going to get him on the field and help him grow and develop even as you get into the regular season. I don't think necessarily his presence in the game is going to dictate a difference in schematics."


Report: Cowboys to sign Michael Sam to practice squad
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:18 pm ET) The Cowboys plan to sign defensive end Michael Sam to the practice squad if he passes a team physical Wednesday, NFL.com reports.

Panthers sign Stephen Hill to practice squad, cut D.J. Smith
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:13 pm ET) The Panthers signed former Jets receiver Stephen Hill to the practice squad Tuesday, terminating the contract of linebacker D.J. Smith in a related move.

Hill, a second-round pick in 2012, caught 45 passes for 594 yards and four touchdowns in 23 games played over two seasons. With a wide-open depth chart at his position in Carolina, Hill has the opportunity to work his way into playing time if he can impress his new team on the practice field.
