    Broncos' Aqib Talib: Out for training camp start

    Aqib Talib (foot) will begin training camp on the non-football injury list, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

    Talib was expected to be ready for the start of training camp, but the leg he injured in a shooting incident in June appears to still be impacting him. In any case, he isn't expected to miss any time once the regular season rolls around.

    Marquess Wilson (foot) is likely to begin the season on the Chicago Bears ' PUP list, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Wilson, who had surgery to repair a fractured left foot this spring, is sporting a walking boot at this stage, with no concrete timetable for his return outlined. The Bears' wideout depth chart is currently topped by Alshon Jeffery, Kevin White and Eddie Royal, with the likes of Josh Bellamy, Marc Mariani, Daniel Braverman, Cameron Meredith and Deonte Thompson jostling for slotting behind the top trio.

    Patriots' Tom Brady: Will share training camp reps
    2h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    With Tom Brady in line to serve a four-game suspension to start the season, coach Bill Belichick acknowledged Wednesday that now that the team finally has "some definition with Tom's situation...our priority now is to get Jimmy (Garoppolo) ready for the start of the season," ESPN.com reports.

    As training camp progresses, both Brady and Garoppolo, as well as rookie Jacoby Brissett to a lesser degree, will see their share of practice reps. Per Belichick, "Tom will return as the starting quarterback when he comes back, but in the meantime, we have to prioritize the first part of our schedule, and that will be to get Jimmy ready to go." Garoppolo is thus slated to start the first four games of the coming season for the New England Patriots , while Brady will be eligible to return to action in Week 5 against the Browns.

    Packers' Eddie Lacy: Reports to camp in noticeably better shape
    2h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Eddie Lacy reported to training camp Tuesday in visibly better shape than he was in last season, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Weight was an issue for Lacy last last season, so he did some extra work in the offseason -- particularly with P90X trainer Tony Horton -- in an effort to get in and stay in better shape in 2016. Lacy refused to disclose exactly how much he weighs when asked Tuesday, but the report says that he is slimmer than he was during OTAs, when he was already smaller then than he was at the end of last season. The report also notes that he is not back to his weight coming out of college, but the fact that he's several years older may be an impediment to ever reverting back to that number. Either way, it's good news for fantasy owners and Green Bay Packers fans that Lacy has made it a point to improve his conditioning. If he is able to keep the pounds off -- he has extra motivation in a contract year -- that should lead to improved stamina and stability, and help him improve upon his sub-par 2015 campaign. If not, he could slip into a time-share with James Starks, similar to what occurred a year ago.

    Rookie Jacoby Brissett will also see his share of reps, but NFL.com relays that coach Bill Belichick has made it clear that the team's priority is to get Garoppolo "ready for the start of the season, the Arizona game" in Week 1. Meanwhile Belichick reiterated Wednesday what has been assumed; "Tom (Brady) will return as the starting quarterback when he comes back, but in the meantime we can prioritize the first part of our schedule." Thus, barring an injury, Garoppolo is in line to play against the Cardinals, Dolphins, Texans and Bills out of the gate this coming season, while Brady will return to action on Oct. 9 against the Browns.

Fellow tailback Jay Ajayi is hardly a sure thing either as he enters his second NFL season, so Drake remains a break away from re-emerging on the sleeper front.

    Aaron Murray will enter training camp as one of three quarterbacks (along with Tyler Bray and Kevin Hogan) in competition for the backup job.

    Murray and Bray both took some reps as the No. 2 quarterback during minicamp, putting the two in position as the favorites for the backup job ahead of the rookie signal-caller (Hogan). However, it's unlikely Hogan will be given the boot in his first season, making it plausible either Murray or Bray wind up the odd man out after losing the competition.

    Colin Kaepernick received clearance from the Colorado doctor that performed his shoulder surgery in November, but the San Francisco 49ers ' medical staff must still clear him for training camp, which kicks off Sunday, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports.

    In a two-month span, Kaepernick underwent procedures on a torn labrum in his left shoulder and a ligament tear in his right thumb, as well as a scope on his left knee, but the first surgery was the one that limited his reps in the offseason program. As a result, Blaine Gabbert currently has a leg up in the competition for starting QB, which will begin in earnest this weekend. Considering Kaepernick's noted mobility would be an asset in new head coach Chip Kelly's system, his ability to take the practice field immediately will aid in his quest for the top gig.

    True to his word, Flacco is available for the start of training camp, despite suffering ACL and MCL tears only eight months ago. The health of his receiving corps seems to be the bigger issue, with both Steve Smith (Achilles) and Breshad Perriman (knee) unavailable for the start of camp and uncertain for the beginning of the season.

    Charles is eligible to be activated from the list and return to practice at any time during training camp. Kissel also relays that coach Andy Reid noted that Charles' placement on the list is not indicative of a setback, with the running back said to be "on track." We'll continue to monitor Charles' status closely, but previous reports have suggested that his recovery is going well. For his part, ESPN's Adam Teicher suggested Tuesday that once the team's top RB is back, the "Chiefs won't limit Charles if he's healthy and he's the same player he was before the knee injury."

    Arian Foster (Achilles) is expected to be a big part of the passing game out of the backfield, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

    How much Foster will contribute to Miami this season will depend on how well is Achilles has healed and whether or not he has lost a step. He will need to pass a conditioning test Friday before participating in camp. Head coach Adam Gase is a big believer in Foster's ability to catch the ball out of the backfield even comparing his route tree to that of a wide receiver. Jay Ajayi still goes into training camp atop the RB depth chart, but if Foster proves to be completely recovered from his injury, it would seem that he could go into Week 1 as the starter.

    Keith Marshall probably won't be a serious threat to Matt Jones' workload, according to ESPN's John Keim.

    Not your typical seventh-round rookie, Marshall led all running backs at the Combine in both the 40-yard dash (4.31) and bench press (25 reps), also checking in with ideal size (5-11, 219). His college track record is the drawback, as knee injuries and talented teammates combined to keep him off the field for most of his time at UGA. While Marshall could instantly compete for a reserve role in an unproven Washington backfield, the team has strongly suggested that Matt Jones is slated for the lead-back job.

Assuming he is able to re-prove his health in the coming weeks, Blount would appear to have the inside track at reclaiming his role as the Patriots' top "big back."

    Antonio Brown , who is said to be hopeful that his contract situation will be addressed before the start of the season, will report to training camp Thursday, ESPN.com reports.

    Brown, who is coming off a fantasy-friendly 136-catch season in 2015, is scheduled to earn $6.25 million in base salary this coming season and $8.71 million in 2017. That's something of a bargain, compared to the salaries other top NFL wideouts haul in, but at this stage, there's nothing to suggest that he plans to engineer any sort of holdout. That's certainly good news for the Pittsburgh Steelers , with fellow key wideout Martavis Bryant set to serve a one-year suspension and star running back Le'Veon Bell potentially facing a four-game suspension to start the coming campaign. In any case, a healthy Brown remains QB Ben Roethlisberger's top target and sits atop most fantasy wideout cheat sheets.

    Josh Gordon (suspension) suffered a quad injury this summer and won't be able to practice for at least a couple weeks, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Gordon was conditionally reinstated by the NFL on Monday, allowing him to participate in training camp as he prepares to start the season with a four-game suspension. The Cleveland Browns then announced that they will give the star wideout another shot, setting him up for a long-awaited return in Week 5, assuming he avoids any off-field issues in the meantime. However, Monday's plethora of good news was hindered a bit Tuesday, as the 25-year-old wideout has apparently been recovering from a quad injury that was previously unreported. While details weren't provided, initial reports suggest the quad is a major concern, with Gordon expected to miss "at least a couple weeks" at the start of training camp. Even if the injury doesn't threaten his Week 5 availability, it's worrisome that Gordon may miss a good chunk of camp (and possibly the preseason), as he already faces the tough task of returning from a 22-month layoff between NFL games, rejoining a Browns team that looks nothing at all like the version he last played for. Gordon will start camp on the Non-Football Injury list.

    In the wake of Shaun Suisham's knee injury and subsequent release from the team in June, Boswell should have the kicking job in Pittsburgh all to himself during 2016.

    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.
