  • Broncos HC Vic Fangio said third-round OL Quinn Meinerz did well coming off the bench in Week 3 and may appear at left guard in Week 4: “He did pretty good. Sometimes it’s good to break in cold turkey. He knows there’s a chance he might play (Sunday). Hopefully he won’t be overwhelmed.” (Mike Klis)

  • After one practice, Chiefs S Tyrann Mathieu compared Gordon to Hall of Fame WR Calvin Johnson: “He kind of reminds me of Calvin Johnson, just the way he’s built . . . From what I’ve seen, he’s a helluva football player.” (Teicher)
