    Browns' Josh Gordon: Dealing with quad issue
    6m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    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.

    Packers' Jordy Nelson: Knee issues not serious

    Jordy Nelson 's knee issue is a result of tendinitis from overcompensating during rehab, Ed Werder of ESPN.com reports.

    The injury is not viewed as serious and shouldn't affect Nelson's status for the beginning of the season. Despite early reports, the tendinitis is located in the opposite knee of the torn ACL that Nelson suffered almost a year ago. Look for more updates to come as training camp gets underway.

    Vance McDonald -- who started seven games last season -- is a likely candidate to be one of the San Francisco 49ers ' two starting tight ends this year, according to the Mercury News.

    McDonald recorded 281 yards and three touchdowns in the seven games he started after Vernon Davis was traded last season. That was done on a 31st ranked San Francisco offense in 2015. With a new Chip Kelly offense that utilizes a lot of two tight end sets, McDonald should be in line to see an expanded role in 2016.

    True to his word, Flacco is available for the start of training camp, despite suffering ACL and MCL tears only eight months ago.

    Blaine Gabbert is the early leader for the starting quarterback job heading into training camp, CSN Bay Area reports.

    Gabbert's late-season success last year and his healthy presence during OTAs are the likely reason he gets the early lead in the position battle. He provides a more stable option in comparison to Colin Kaepernick, but the latter could surpass him on the depth chart if he has a strong training camp and preseason.

    Saints' Drew Brees: No contract extension expected before training camp

    Unless something changes in the next few days, Drew Brees (foot) will not have a new contract in place before the New Orleans Saints kick off training camp, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports. Brees, however, has insisted that he will not hold out or skip any practice time, and he fully participated in OTAs and minicamp. Saints veterans report to training camp in West Virginia on Wednesday.

    Brees is entering the last year of his contract, but the Saints appear content to let him play out the year with a whopping salary-cap figure of $30 million. He's stated that the unofficial deadline to complete an extension is the start of the regular season. Given that Brees continues to be productive -- he led the NFL in passing for the fourth time in five seasons last year with 4,870 yards in just 15 games played -- it would not be surprising to see the Saints and their franchise quarterback strike a deal prior to Sept. 1.

    Broncos' Paxton Lynch: In line for rookie playing time
    1d ago • By RotoWire Staff

    The Denver Broncos would like to see Paxton Lynch take the reins at some point this season, 9NEWS reports.

    Lynch became Denver's future the moment they traded up in the first round to nab him. Ever since, however, the conversation around 2016's starter has been around Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian. Lynch is easily the most physically gifted of the three, but he's supposedly still refining his game and adjusting to a pro offense. Whether Lynch ends up finding the playing field will likely depend on whether Denver's defense and running game is carrying it to another playoff berth. Head coach Gary Kubiak opted for experience over physical skill last playoffs, albeit in the form of a future Hall of Famer in Peyton Manning, not a journeyman like Sanchez. This scenario has played out in Mile High before under offensive coordinator Rick Dennison. Denver was 7-4 with Jake Plummer under center in 2006, only to test out Jay Cutler and fall to 9-7, out of the playoff race.

    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
    9d 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.

    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.

    Blount didn't participate in any of the Patriots' spring practices, but unless the team elects to add the running back to the list in the coming days, it looks like he'll be able to take the field in training camp.

    Helu did not practice in any of the Raiders' offseason workouts while recovering from offseason hip procedures, and he'll continue to sit out of practice as training camp begins. It's unclear how long he'll remain out, but the more time he misses, the more likely it is that he gets cut, as Oakland has several other running backs also on the roster, including Latavius Murray, DeAndre Washington, George Atkinson and Taiwan Jones.

    Dion Lewis (knee) is set to open training camp on the New England Patriots ' active/PUP list, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

    Lewis' inclusion on the list comes as little surprise, given that he is bouncing back from surgery this past November to repair a torn ACL. To date, his progress appears to be going well, but the running back will be one to watch in the coming weeks, nonetheless. Players on the active/PUP list are eligible to come off the list (and resume practice) at any time during training camp, though as long as Lewis is out or slowed at all, the likes of UDFA D.J. Foster and veteran Donald Brown figure to have added opportunities to make cases to secure spots in the Patriots' 2016 backfield.

    Le'Veon Bell (knee) said he will win the appeal of the potential four-game suspension he faces for missing drug tests and thus won't miss any games as a result of the situation, ESPN.com reports.

    Bell's rejection of potential suspension talk came in the form of a comment from his verified Instagram account on a picture posted by someone else. At the moment, Bell is reportedly appealing the suspension, which is why it hasn't been announced. According to the league's collective bargaining agreement, a player can miss up to two drug tests without forfeiting games, but a four-game suspension is triggered upon a third missed test. Earlier this offseason, Bell denied missing or failing any tests, but despite what he says, his situation is still obviously one of huge importance for fantasy owners to monitor going forward.

    Johnson's 61 receptions as a rookie running back last season made him a PPR darling, and new head coach Hue Jackson intends to get him the ball in more ways this year. That includes splitting him out at wide receiver in some packages, adding another layer to his fantasy value. As it stands, he'll compete with Isaiah Crowell for the Cleveland Browns ' starting running back gig, but on a Cleveland offense in need of playmakers, Johnson's versatility should allow for ample touches no matter his ultimate pegging on the depth chart.

    Laquon Treadwell said he was never fully healthy last season at Mississippi, but is at full speed heading into training camp. "I wasn't 100 percent in anything I did from the beginning of spring ball (in 2015) to pro day (at Mississippi on March 28). I was playing on one leg my whole junior season. Last year wasn't fun going out and being hurt and trying to play," he told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

    Treadwell broke his left tibia and dislocated his left ankle in a gruesome injury in a Nov. 1, 2014 game. He came back to catch 82 passes for 1,153 yards and 11 touchdowns last season at Mississippi in his first season back from the injury. He also ran a disappointing 40-yard dash in 4.63 seconds but was still the 23rd overall pick in the 2016 draft. If Treadwell wasn't at full speed last year, that suggests he has more potential than his play last year showed. He'll need to earn a starting job this summer, but it's expected he'll begin the season as the No. 2 receiver.

Despite putting together an efficient first season, Crowder's role came into some question after the Redskins used their first-round pick on WR Josh Doctson, who joins Crowder, DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and TE Jordan Reed to form one of the league's deeper receiving corps. While Doctson can't be ruled out as a threat to take snaps away from Crowder, the rookie might actually present more of a challenge to Jackson and/or Garcon on the outside.

    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.
