QB - FA
Week 8 Outlook
Tom Savage completed five of nine pass attempts for 33 yards, no TDs, and no INTs in the Lions’ loss to the Browns in Thursday’s preseason finale.
Savage was largely ineffective once again, and Detroit may opt for a more dynamic QB in Josh Johnson to backup Matthew Stafford.
Tom Savage completed two of three passes for 40 yards, no TDs and no INTs in the Lions' 31-3 loss to the Patriots in Thursday's preseason opener.
Savage played it safe in a relief effort, throwing just three passes and completing two of them for 40 yards. The former Texans QB has a 2-7 record in nine career starts, and he's looking to latch on with the Lions as a backup.
The official Twitter account of the Cincinnati Bengals is reporting the team has claimed QB Tom Savage on waivers from the 49ers.
In the wake of placing Andy Dalton on IR earlier in the day with a thumb injury, the Bengals claimed Savage from the 49ers in a corresponding move. Savage has yet to make an appearance in an NFL game in 2018. He will provide Cincinnati depth at QB behind Jeff Driskel.
Backup quarterback Tom Savage was re-signed by the 49ers after San Francisco placed RB Raheem Mostert (broken arm) and CB Emmanuel Moseley (dislocated shoulder) on season-ending IR. This is Savage's third stint on San Francisco's active roster in the past two weeks.
Savage will act as the emergency quarterback behind C.J. Beathard and Nick Mullens. There's almost no path to playing time for Savage, so this stay in San Francisco could also be a short one
