SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers have promoted running Matthew Dayes to the active roster from the practice squad and waived defensive back Tyvis Powell.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Devon Cajuste's crystals couldn't ward off being cut.
The long-haired tight end, who became an overnight favorite with Browns fans after appearing on HBO's "Hard Knocks," was one of 19 players released by the team Saturday.
Cajuste's easygoing nature, fondness for hand-picked crystals and close bond with his father, earned him a devoted following but that didn't help him secure a spot on the 53-man roster.
DETROIT (AP) — Baker Mayfield threw for 138 yards in a dominant first half for Cleveland, and the Browns wrapped up the preseason with a 35-17 victory over the Detroit Lions on Thursday night.
Mayfield completed a 41-yard pass to Devon Cajuste on the first play from scrimmage, and the top overall pick in this year's draft looked sharp throughout his two quarters directing Cleveland's offense.
