ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills have signed quarterback Davis Webb to their practice squad, two days after the former third-round draft pick was cut by the New York Jets.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — For the first time in about a decade, the New York Giants seemingly don't have to worry about Eli Manning getting hurt.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have waived former Troy University and Alliance of American Football quarterback Brandon Silvers.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have claimed quarterback Luke Falk off waivers from the Miami Dolphins.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have tendered a second-round qualifying offer to wide receiver Robby Anderson, who could become a restricted free agent next week.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets' starting QB is TBD for Sunday.
Sam Darnold and Josh McCown were both limited at practice for the second straight day, leaving it uncertain who will be under center at Tennessee.
Coach Todd Bowles said Thursday that Darnold, McCown and Davis Webb each had snaps and ran the offense during drills.
"We'll see who's the healthiest," Bowles said. "All of them are taking reps right now and we'll make that decision as the week goes."
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Sam Darnold is out of his walking boot and has started jogging. Next step for the New York Jets quarterback: getting back on the field.
Darnold sat out the team's first practice after its bye-week break while he continues to recover from a foot strain.
The rookie wore a green Jets cap and sweats as practice began Monday, and mostly watched from the side while Josh McCown and Davis Webb threw passes in individual drills.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold is sitting out the team's first practice after its bye-week break while he continues to recover from a foot strain.
The rookie wore a green Jets cap and sweats as practice began Monday, and he mostly watched from the side while Josh McCown and Davis Webb threw passes in individual drills. He is no longer wearing a boot on his right foot.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have signed quarterback Davis Webb from the practice squad and placed tight end Neal Sterling on season-ending injured reserve.
Webb will serve as the backup to Josh McCown on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Rookie starter Sam Darnold is sidelined with a strained right foot , so the 39-year-old McCown is starting in his place.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Take a seat, Sam. You're sitting this one out.
New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold was listed as doubtful Friday for the team's game against Buffalo on Sunday, making it highly unlikely he will serve as Josh McCown's backup.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Josh McCown is going from mentor to starter this week for the New York Jets.
The 39-year-old quarterback will be under center Sunday against the Buffalo Bills in place of injured rookie Sam Darnold, who's sidelined with a strained right foot.
"I'm ready to rule him out as a starter for this week," coach Todd Bowles said of Darnold on Thursday. "I don't know if I'll rule him out yet for the game."
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Sam Darnold could be headed for the sideline this week — and maybe longer.
The New York Jets rookie quarterback has a strained right foot, coach Todd Bowles announced Wednesday, leaving Darnold's status for the team's game Sunday against Buffalo in doubt.
"It's just adversity," Darnold said after practice. "You've just got to deal with it, get better as soon as possible, get back on the field as soon as possible."
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Davis Webb was just as surprised as everyone else when he was cut by the Giants.
The second-year quarterback wasn't out of a job for long, though. And, he's ready to move forward with the Jets, who signed him to their practice squad Tuesday.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — In a surprising move, the New York Giants released backup quarterback Davis Webb on Sunday.
That leaves inexperienced Kyle Lauletta and Alex Tanney behind Eli Manning who, of course, never has missed a game because of injury in his career.
New York also released vested veterans guard John Jerry and defensive back William Gay, and waived tight end Jerell Adams, wide receiver Hunter Sharp and defensive tackle Josh Banks.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Super Bowl winner, cancer survivor and NFLPA treasurer Mark Herzlich was among the 36 player moves made by the New York Giants in getting down to the league's 53-man roster limit.
The Giants announced the moves Saturday in what won't be the last ones for the first team under new coach Pat Shurmur. General manager Dave Gettleman plans to scour the waiver wire this weekend to bolster a team that went 3-13 last season.
DETROIT (AP) — Davis Webb took a step toward restoring confidence that he can be a capable backup quarterback for the New York Giants.
Webb took advantage of his opportunity to play for Eli Manning, throwing a go-ahead touchdown in the second quarter to help the New York Giants beat the Detroit Lions 30-17 Friday night.
NEW YORK (AP) — During the mandatory rookie camp back in June, the New York Giants required players to take a yoga class. Running back Robert Martin walked in, looked around at his new teammates and thought, man, this is crazy.
"We usually don't do yoga," he said. "We stretch, but we don't do yoga."
Even as a first-timer, though, Martin immediately knew how the two were different .
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have another entry in the contest to be the heir apparent to two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning.
After passing on the more well-known quarterbacks early in the NFL draft to take Saquon Barkley of Penn State with the second pick overall, the Giants on Saturday used their fourth-round pick to take Kyle Lauletta of Richmond.
EAST RUTHERFOR, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants are sticking with Eli Manning.
A day after saying he wasn't sure who would start against the NFC East champion Philadelphia Eagles, interim coach Steve Spagnuolo on Monday left no doubt that the two-time Super Bowl MVP would be his quarterback Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants' firing of coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese may have made things tougher on the Dallas Cowboys in their fight to stay in the playoff race.
A week ago, the Cowboys (6-6) probably looked forward to playing the Giants (2-10) at MetLife Stadium with either Geno Smith or rookie Davis Webb running New York's offense under McAdoo's plan to evaluate his quarterbacks after benching Eli Manning.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The benching of Eli Manning for the first time in 13 seasons is probably the low point of a season in which the New York Giants did almost nothing right.
Let's start with the decision by coach Ben McAdoo and management to sit Manning with five games left in the regular season.
Sure, the Giants are 2-9, out of the playoff picture and they need to find out something about backup quarterbacks Geno Smith and rookie Davis Webb.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Ben McAdoo is sticking with Eli Manning as the New York Giants' quarterback in what has become a frustrating, lost season.
McAdoo made it clear Monday that the Giants' 1-6 record is not grounds for handing the quarterback job to third-round draft pick Davis Webb so the team can evaluate him in regular-season action.
There is no question the offense has struggled as it heads into a bye week. It has scored 112 points, which is the fifth fewest in the league.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Geno Smith is back in the NFL.
Smith completed a remarkable comeback from major knee surgery last season and his subsequent release by the Jets after an inconsistent tenure. He made the New York Giants' roster as Eli Manning's backup. At least for now.
The 26-year-old Smith edged fellow veteran Josh Johnson for the No. 2 spot, with third-round draft pick Davis Webb waiting in the wings.
The decision was one of several tough ones Saturday for coach Ben McAdoo.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The fight for the New York Giants' backup quarterback job is taking on a new dimension.
Heading into the preseason opener, veterans Geno Smith and Josh Johnson seemed to be dueling for the job as Eli Manning's understudy with third-round draft pick Davis Webb expected to be given a year to learn coach Ben McAdoo's system as the No. 3 quarterback.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — If Geno Smith is going to win the backup quarterback job with New York Giants, the real competition starts Friday.
For the past two weeks in training camp, Smith and fellow veteran Josh Johnson have alternated as the No. 2 quarterback behind two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning. Rookie draft pick Davis Webb has barely seen any action.
Manning and Webb, the third-round draft pick out of California, have their spots on the roster set.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Eli Manning didn't play a lot in the preseason a year ago for the New York Giants and that may not change this year.
Manning appeared in two of the four preseason games in 2016 and threw 38 passes before leading the Giants to an 11-5 record and their first playoff appearance since the 2011 Super Bowl season.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Geno Smith didn't catch a break in his final two seasons with the New York Jets, and it seems his chances of resurrecting his career with the Giants are facing obstacles.
Not only does Smith have to beat out incumbent Josh Johnson for the backup quarterback job to Eli Manning, his prospects of making the team took another hit in the NFL draft when the Giants selected Davis Webb with their third-round draft pick.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — It didn't take the New York Giants long to find a replacement for defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins, and they may have found one for Eli Manning, too.
After taking Dalvin Tomlinson of Alabama in the second round of the NFL draft, the Giants drafted a potential down-the-road replacement for the 36-year-old Manning, taking California quarterback Davis Webb in the third round.
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Davis Webb has the arm strength, confidence and leadership skills that NFL teams covet in quarterbacks.
The key task for Webb leading up to this month's draft is to prove to teams that he is more than a product of the Air Raid offense and can transition to the pros.
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Davis Webb punctuated his one-year career at California with a pair of touchdown passes, a milestone achievement shared by only one other quarterback in school history and a legacy of work ethic that coach Sonny Dykes couldn't stop gushing over.
Barring a surprise invitation to the postseason for his Golden Bears teammates, Webb's next pass will be thrown at the Senior Bowl before he tries to make the leap to the NFL.
PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Washington State is 7-0 in conference play for the first time in its history. That isn't enough for receiver Gabe Marks.
"Now we want to be 8-0. That would be cool," Marks said.
The surging Cougars, ranked 23rd in the nation, took control of the Pac-12 North by winning their eighth consecutive game on Saturday.
Luke Falk threw five touchdown passes, including three to River Cracraft, helping Washington State beat California 56-21.
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Matt Anderson kicked a 28-yard field goal in the second overtime and Jordan Kunaszyk sealed the victory with an interception that gave California a 52-49 victory over Oregon on Friday night.
Davis Webb threw five touchdown passes and ran for a sixth to lead the way for the Golden Bears (4-3, 2-2 Pac-12), who snapped a seven-game losing streak to Oregon.
CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Boosted by a pair of wins over ranked teams this season — including last weekend's dramatic victory over Utah — the California Golden Bears are trying to stay vigilant against Oregon State.
The Golden Bears (3-2, 1-1) visit the Beavers (1-3, 0-1) on Saturday, with Oregon State still looking for its first conference win under coach Gary Andersen, now in his second season.
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — The birthplace of counter-culture is a long way from tiny Prosper, Texas.
It took some getting used to, but Davis Webb has adapted just fine to a new environment and a new team in Berkeley, California.
Webb, a Texas Tech graduate transfer who replaced Jared Goff, the No. 1 overall pick in this year's NFL draft, at quarterback, has led the California Golden Bears to a surprising 3-2 record, with consecutive upsets over ranked teams for the first time since 2009.
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — The leading passer in the FBS has a pretty strong connection with the No. 1 overall pick in this year's NFL draft.
California's Davis Webb regularly exchanges text messages with Jared Goff, the former Golden Bears quarterback now with the Los Angeles Rams, with the topics covering a wide range. The two have known each other since they were seniors in high school and remain close, even though one is still in college and the other is in the pros.
No. 18 Utah (4-0, 1-0 Pac-12) at California (2-2, 0-1), 6 p.m. (P12N)
Line: California by 2½.
Series Record: Tied 5-5.
WHAT'S AT STAKE
The Utes are off to a 4-0 start for the second straight year and seek a win in their first Pac-12 road game. The Golden Bears look to bounce back from a blown lead at Arizona State and win their conference home opener.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Failure to force turnovers had been a big problem for Arizona State this season.
Until the final three minutes Saturday night.
The Sun Devils picked off Davis Webb twice in that span and D.J. Calhoun returned a Cal onside kick attempt 42 yards with 48 seconds to play in a 51-41 victory over the Bear in the Pac-12 opener for both teams on Saturday night.
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Davis Webb has been waiting for a chance to beat Texas for almost as long as California waited for a big win against a ranked opponent.
A big performance by Webb made both come true on a night when the Golden Bears once again struggled defensively and running back Vic Enwere made a bonehead play that nearly cost Cal a chance to win.
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — It took transferring to California for quarterback Davis Webb finally to get the chance to play against the Texas team he grew up backing.
Webb served as a backup twice and was injured once when his old team at Texas Tech took on the Longhorns. But he will get that opportunity to play Saturday night when the Golden Bears (1-1) host No. 11 Texas (2-0) in the nonconference finale for both teams.
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — The 7,500 mile trip, 17-hour time difference, and all the hoopla surrounding the first college football game played in Australia in three decades was easy.
The hard part for the Cal Bears was coming home.
"We felt great there, the real problem was getting back here," senior quarterback Davis Webb said.
DENVER (AP) — Six months ago, the Colorado Buffaloes were content for Sefo Liufau to take his time recovering from left foot surgery because Texas Tech transfer Davis Webb was insisting he'd be wearing the black and gold this fall.
Then, Webb spurned the Buffaloes for the Cal Bears.
SYDNEY (AP) — After three seasons at Texas Tech, quarterback Davis Webb made quite an impression in his first game as a graduate transfer at California.
Webb threw four touchdown passes and ran for another score in a stellar debut for California, leading the Bears to a 51-31 win over Hawaii on Saturday in college football's season opener at Sydney's Olympic stadium.
