    Steelers' Ladarius Green: Looks forward to taking the field in training camp
    11h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Ladarius Green , who is bouncing back from offseason ankle surgery, is looking forward to participating in training camp, the Pittsburgh Steelers ' official site reports.

    Thanks to the procedure, the tight end -- who agreed to a four-year, $20 million contract with the Steelers in March -- was unable to participate in the team's offseason program as anything but an observer, though the 26-year-old has been working on absorbing Pittsburgh's offensive playbook in the meantime. While it remains to be seen how much Green will able able to do on the field next week when training camp opens, there's nothing to suggest that his Week 1 status is in any danger. In the wake of the retirement of Heath Miller, Green is slated to serve as the Steelers' unquestioned No. 1 tight end, an assignment that should allow Antonio Gates' former understudy (in San Diego) to put up fantasy-worthy numbers in 2016.

    Lions' Corey Fuller: Placed on PUP list

    Corey Fuller has been placed on the physically unable to perform list for the start of Detroit Lions training camp.

    Fuller had offseason foot surgery in June, and a timetable has not yet been released for his return. That being said, it's now clear he won't be able to practice at the start of training camp. When healthy, he's a likely candidate for the Lions' No. 3 wide receiver slot behind Golden Tate and Marvin Jones. Whether or not Fuller returns to practice during training camp remains to be seen, but Andre Roberts and Jeremy Kerley will see extra reps as long as he's sidelined.

    Pettigrew has been recovering from an ACL tear he suffered in December of last season. Though he's made steady progress, he isn't ready to practice quite yet and will instead participate in off-field activities. He'll be looking to return as soon as possible in order to compete with Eric Ebron (undisclosed), who will handle first-team reps while Pettigrew is sidelined.

    With Le'Veon Bell potentially facing a four-game suspension to start the 2016 campaign, DeAngelo Williams could head the Pittsburgh Steelers ' backfield early on this season.

    Previous question marks surrounding Bell had revolved around the health of his surgically repaired knee, but now the more pressing issue appears to be his potential four-game suspension. With that in mind, Williams' fantasy value gets at least a temporary boost, especially considering how capably the 33-year-old filled in last season for Bell, who missed 10 contests due to injuries, as well as a suspension.

    The 2015 first-round pick missed his entire rookie season with a PCL injury, and suffered a scare earlier in the offseason when he was diagnosed with a partial ACL tear in his other knee. Fortunately, Perriman was able to opt for a stem-cell injection to help the ligament heal and avoid surgery. The Baltimore Ravens anticipated that he would not be ready for the start of training camp, but remain optimistic he will be ready to return to the field prior to the start of the season. With the uncertainty surrounding veteran Steve Smith Sr. returning from an Achilles injury the Ravens are already thin in the receiving department, which will leave plenty of opportunity for Perriman should his recovery remain on track.

    Joe Flacco (knee) plans to participate in practice when the Baltimore Ravens begin training camp on July 28, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports.

    Flacco has stated numerous times that he intends on being in action when training camp starts, reassuring fantasy owners of his progress since suffering a torn ACL last November. The quarterback is already able to sprint and make cuts, so taking the field with his teammates later this month would represent the next step in his return. At this point, it seems likely that Flacco will be ready to roll once Week 1 kicks off, but it should still be worthwhile to monitor his involvement and performance level throughout the preseason.

    Chiefs' Kevin Hogan: In mix for for backup QB role
    7d ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Kevin Hogan , the Kansas City Chiefs ' 2016 fifth-round selection, is in the mix for the backup QB role as soon as this upcoming season, NFL.com reports.

    Chase Daniel (Eagles) bolted for a pay increase this offseason, subsequently leaving the Chiefs with a void at backup quarterback. Alex Smith, who tossed for a career-high 3,486 yards in 2015, is undoubtedly locked in as the starter, but his mobile tendencies do leave him more vulnerable than the average starting quarterback, which thus places more importance on the backup quarterback in Kansas City relative to the rest of the league. Evidently, Hogan, a fifth-round selection in this year's draft, is in competition for said job as soon as this year and will battle for the title with Aaron Murray and Tyler Bray come training camp.

    Carson Wentz , who the Philadelphia Eagles selected No. 2 overall in April's NFL Draft, is trending toward opening the coming season as a game-day inactive, phillyvoice.com reports.

    While Wentz is destined to start for the Eagles down the road, at this stage the rookie is the team's third QB, behind both starter Sam Bradford and top backup Chase Daniel, per coach Doug Pederson. It's an arrangement we'd expect to remain firmly in place to start the season, in the absence of an injury. With the long haul in mind, the Eagles are not inclined to rush the development of Wentz, though the report encouragingly notes that the 23-year-old signal-caller had some impressive moments during the team's OTAs and minicamp.

    Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins will not reach agreement on a long-term extension ahead of Friday's deadline, Yahoo! reports.

    Cousins' representatives and the Redskins have long been far apart on contract terms, so it's of little surprise that he won't go into the upcoming campaign with a new multi-year deal. Instead, Cousins will play under Washington's $19.953 million franchise tag, making him the first quarterback in 11 years to play under such designation. After a breakout 2015 season, Cousins will hope a similarly strong 2016 results in a huge payday next offseason, and with a bevy of weapons surrounding him, Cousins should like his current position.

    Brady's request for a second hearing was denied by the Second U.S. District Court of Appeals on Wednesday, leaving the star quarterback with little optimism that his four-game suspension would ever be overturned. Without appealing to the Supreme Court, Brady will be sidelined while Jimmy Garoppolo leads the New England Patriots ' offense for the beginning of the season. Expect Brady to be back on the field when New England takes on the Browns in a Week 5 matchup.

    Kirk Cousins is not expected to sign an extension prior to Friday's deadline for franchise-tagged players, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

    If no agreement is reached by Friday afternoon, Cousins will play out 2016 with a $19.953 million salary. He'd be in line for a huge, multi-year deal if he were to have another strong season, but an ineffective or injury-plagued campaign could push him back into the price range for No. 2 quarterbacks. Cousins has a nice array of weapons to help him out, with first-round rookie wideout Josh Doctson joining a group that already includes DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon, Jamison Crowder and TE Jordan Reed.

    The report clarifies that Bell did not fail a test, but simply did not show up for one recently, and the reason a suspension hasn't been announced is because he is appealing the punishment. Bell was suspended for the first three games of last season, which was then reduced to two, for a violation of the league's drug policy, and if he is forced to sit out again, DeAngelo Williams will likely start in his place.

    Colts' Frank Gore: May see less carries in 2016

    The Indianapolis Colts plan to reduce Frank Gore 's workload in 2016, ESPN's Mike Wells reports.

    The 33-year-old logged 260 carries in 2015, but averaged an ineffective 3.7 yards per attempt that was notably less than his previous career-low figure of 4.1. A lighter load in 2016 could keep Gore fresh and more productive on a per-clip basis, and will also allow the Colts to effectively take stock of their backfield talent with an eye towards a point in time when Gore is no longer part of the equation. In addition to the presumed reduction of wear and tear the extra rest will bring, the real boon to Gore's prospects and health this upcoming season will be the Colts' newfound emphasis on their offensive line.

    Colts' Phillip Dorsett: Expected to start in new-look Colts offense
    5d ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Phillip Dorsett is projected for an every-down role in 2016 with the Indianapolis Colts transitioning to what is "definitely going to be a three-wide-receiver offense," ESPN's Mike Wells reports.

    Dorsett endured an injury-marred rookie season in an offense that regularly featured two tight ends, but the Colts have extensively operated out of three-wide receiver sets during their offseason program. With the departure of TE Coby Fleener (Saints), this trend is expected to continue into the 2016 season. The main beneficiary in such a scenario would be Dorsett, who would consequently see every-down snaps on the outside opposite Donte Moncrief (toe), with T.Y. Hilton manning the slot. Additionally working in Dorsett's favor are the losses of Andre Johnson (free agent) and Griff Whalen (Dolphins), whom, along with the aforementioned Fleener, were the recipients of a combined 188 targets in 2015. Looking ahead, Dorsett's usage in the coming season could likely resemble his role during Week 17 last yeAr, when he logged 53 snaps, received nine targets split wide, and recorded a tote out of the backfield as well.

    Minnesota offensive coordinator Norv Turner raved about Laquon Treadwell 's instincts and fluidity running routes in spring practices, and he could be a focal point with the offense using him in skinny post routes similar to how he was used in college, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "That was our offense - quick routes and running across the middle," Treadwell said. "Drags. Slants. Bang 8s. Comeback routes. It's similar."

    Treadwell may be utilized in the skinny post, or in the middle-of-the-field routes in front of a safety that have been a hallmark of Turner's successful offenses in the past. Turner doesn't go into many specifics about his plans, but the article talks to those who know his offense well and who opine that Treadwell could have a featured role that brings a new dynamic to the Minnesota offense. However he's used, the first-round draft pick seems to have made a strong impression in spring practices.

    Rodgers' 58 receptions last season were the second-most by a tight end in Packers history, but his at times brutal inability to gain yards after the catch caused frustration. In response, Green Bay signed Jared Cook, an excellent athlete, this offseason, but after having foot surgery in June, the veteran could be somewhat limited as the season approaches. That would allow a reportedly more slender Rodgers to continue to see the bulk of first-team reps at tight end, where his consistency and familiarity with the offense could give him a further advantage on Cook when it comes to playing time.

    The NFL has suspended Vontaze Burfict for the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated violations of safety-related playing rules, the NFL reports.

    Burfict has oscillated between brilliant and bone-headed during his four-year career, and Saturday's wild-card defeat to the Steelers was no exception. Although his strip sack of Ben Roethlisberger (a play in which the quarterback was knocked out until the final drive due to a shoulder injury) and interception of backup Landry Jones spurred the Cincinnati Bengals ' comeback bid, he also committed a crucial unnecessary roughness penalty on Antonio Brown with 22 seconds remaining, which compounded with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty from Adam Jones to set up the Steelers' game-winning field goal. On a more serious note, Burfict has been flagged for 14 unnecessary roughness calls since he entered the professional ranks in 2012, seemingly necessitating Monday's action from the NFL. Pending an appeal, he'll begin the suspension in Week 1 of next season.
