49ers HC Jim Tomsula mentioned that they elected to hold out RB Carlos Hyde of the second half of their Week 2 game as a precaution.
“He was evaluated for a head injury,” Tomsula said, via CSN Bay Area. “He was cleared, but (we) opted not to put him in.”
Browns HC Mike Pettine said that until QB Josh McCown‘s situation is resolved, he’ll remain the team’s starting quarterback.
“(QB) Josh (McCown) is in the concussion protocol still,” Pettine said, via ClevelandBrowns.com. “So until that situation is resolved, then he will be the starter.”
Pettine was asked if Johnny Manziel could start when McCown is cleared, to which he said: “We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it. I’m not going to speak on that one.”
Cowboys TE Jason Witten mentioned after Sunday’s game that he is dealing with two sprained ankles and a sprained knee.
“It’s just some bumps and bruises,” Witten said, per Bart Hubbuch. “Typical football stuff. I’ll be fine.”
