The San Francisco 49ers activated wide receiver Michael Crabtree from the reserve/PUP list. He will likely make his 2013 NFL debut Sunday vs the St. Louis Rams. The team also waived quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson to clear a roster spot for Crabtree.
The Denver Broncos will place defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson (hip) on injured reserve, due to a dislocated hip suffered in Sunday’s loss to the Patriots.
The Cleveland Browns claimed tight end Andre Smith off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys, as well as signing quarterback Alex Tanney off their practice squad. The team also waived receiver Brian Tyms and offensive lineman Patrick Lewis.
The Miami Dolphins signed defensive tackle A.J. Francis off the Patriots’ practice squad.
The New Jets placed linebacker Troy Davis on injured reserve with a chest injury, ending his season. Davis suffered a severe chest contusion in Sunday’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens. He was mostly used on special teams.
