(TSX / STATS) -- Linebacker NaVorro Bowman is signing a one-year, $3 million deal with the Oakland Raiders, multiple outlets reported on Monday.

The San Francisco 49ers released Bowman on Friday after seven seasons with team. The 49ers agreed to the 29-year-old Bowman's request to be released after trade scenarios were investigated, according to general manager John Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan.

Bowman could provide a boost to a Oakland defense that was shredded by Melvin Gordon in Sunday's 17-16 setback to the Los Angeles Chargers. The 24-year-old Gordon rushed for 83 yards and a touchdown and added nine receptions for 67 yards and a score.


WR Bryant says he's happy with Steelers

(TSX / STATS) -- Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant reportedly requested a trade recently, but he shut down those reports Monday.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported late Sunday that sources informed him of Bryant's trade request because of lack of playing time, adding that Steelers teammates and coaches are well aware that the receiver is unhappy. ESPN confirmed the report.


Vikings' Bridgewater cleared to practice

(TSX / STATS) -- Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who has not played or practiced since suffering a dislocated left knee and torn ACL almost 14 months ago, was cleared to return to practice, coach Mike Zimmer confirmed Monday.

Dr. Dan Cooper, an orthopedic specialist who performed the major surgery on the dislocation on Sept. 9, 2016, examined Bridgewater in Dallas on Monday morning and cleared him to begin practice on Wednesday.


Broncos WRs Sanders, McKenzie out

(TSX / STATS) -- Denver Broncos wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Isaiah McKenzie sustained sprained ankles Sunday night and will miss the team's Week 7 game against the Los Angeles Chargers, coach Vance Joseph said Monday.

"They're out this week and will be week-to-week after that," Joseph said in a radio interview on Orange and Blue 760.


Redskins DL Allen out at least 3 weeks

(TSX / STATS) -- Washington Redskins rookie defensive lineman Jonathan Allen is expected to be sidelined for at least three weeks with a foot injury, coach Jay Gruden said Monday.

Allen, Washington's first-round draft pick (No. 17 overall) out of Alabama, is dealing with a Lisfranc sprain sustained in Sunday's 26-24 win over the San Francisco 49ers.


Rodgers breaks collarbone, Packers lose

(TSX / STATS) -- MINNEAPOLIS -- The Green Bay Packers not only lost a game and their perch atop the NFC North on Sunday. They may have lost much more.

After quarterback Aaron Rodgers left the game with a broken collarbone in the first quarter, backup Brett Hundley could not solve the Minnesota defense. The end result was a 23-10 Vikings win, leaving the teams tied with identical 4-2 records.


Kaepernick files collusion grievance

(TSX / STATS) -- Free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick filed a grievance against the NFL, accusing the 32 owners of collusion, his legal team announced on Sunday.

Kaepernick has remained unemployed through the first six weeks of the NFL season, even when injuries to other quarterbacks created job openings. He retained attorney Mark Geragos to represent him.


Peterson stars in debut, Winston injured

(TSX / STATS) -- GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Adrian Peterson did more in his first two quarters Sunday with the Cardinals than he could in his first four games combined with the Saints, but it almost didn't matter as Arizona had to hold off a furious rally before vanquishing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 38-33.

The Cardinals scored points on each of their first five possessions of the game in beating the Buccaneers for the second straight year at home. For Tampa Bay, this one was worse than last season's 40-7 loss, as quarterback Jameis Winston exited the game with an injured right shoulder in the second quarter and did not return.


Steelers hold on to hand Chiefs 1st loss

(TSX / STATS) -- KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Pittsburgh Steelers hold a simple winning formula for beating the Kansas City Chiefs, and it mostly revolves around handing the ball to Le'Veon Bell.

The Steelers running back carved up the Chiefs for 179 rushing yards Sunday, and they knocked off the league's last unbeaten team 19-13 at Arrowhead Stadium.


Down 17-0, Miami rallies to stun Falcons

(TSX / STATS) -- ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Falcons, like in the Super Bowl last season, couldn't hold a big halftime lead and it was the Miami Dolphins who came away with a victory this time.

Safety Reshad Jones intercepted Matt Ryan at the 6-yard line on a deflection with 39 seconds left and the Dolphins defeated the Falcons 20-17 on Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium after trailing 17-0 at halftime.
