  • Kenny Bell TB WR
    Buccaneers' Kenny Bell: Impresses on Day 1 of camp
    1h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Kenny Bell 's performance on Day 1 of training camp was praised by head coach Dirk Koetter, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

    The second-year speedster missed all of his rookie campaign with a hamstring injury, but has impressed throughout OTAs and mini-camps this offseason. Bell is one of several players competing for Tampa's third receiver job, and brings an array of physical tools to the table. He had those on display Thursday, including on a ball he snagged on a crisp slant route against offseason acquisition Brent Grimes. His Day 1 effort certainly caught the eye of Koetter, leading him to remark that Bell "...got off to a good start. Kenny definitely flashes. He ... picked up right where he left off."

    Vikings' Taylor Heinicke: Out for three months with torn tendon in ankle
    3h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Taylor Heinicke will be out for three months after tearing a tendon in his left ankle in mid-July, Ben Goessling of ESPN reports.

    Heinicke sustained the injury after attempting to enter his friend's home after the two had been locked out. The third-string quarterback attempted to budge the door open with his foot, but slipped and had his foot go through the window, resulting in a fairly serious injury. Clearly, this is a freak injury and the Minnesota Vikings are hoping for a recovery by mid-season, but the damage to Heinicke's ankle only holds fantasy importance in the deepest of leagues.

    Star Lotulelei sat out team drills on Thursday due to tightness in his hamstring, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

    Lotulelei's hamstring tightness doesn't appear to be anything too serious and shouldn't impact him too much going forward. He was able to partake in individual drills and position drills prior to sitting out when full team drills began. Entering his fourth season, Lotulelei will again be the Carolina Panthers ' starting defensive tackle and look to improve on his one sack, 22 tackle performance last year.

    Atlanta wants to get Tevin Coleman more carries and feature him more in the passing game this season, the Atlanta Falcons ' official web site reports. He was used in a variety of passing routes Thursday in 11-on-11 drills.

    Coleman has also been mentioned as a potential kick returner. Running backs coach Bobby Turner has said he'd like to reduce starter Devonta Freeman's carries in 2016 to keep him fresh. It's not clear how many touches per game Coleman will get in the backfield and he'll need to end his fumbling issues (3 lost fumbles in 12 games) to stay on the field. Still, the early buzz in training camp is that Coleman may have a larger role in the offense than many expected.

He's hoping to catch on with Carolina this season, but he'll need to fight for every rep he can to do so.

    Barry Church (arm) enters training camp with 100 percent health, Rob Phillips of the Dallas Cowboys ' official site reports.

    A tough son of a gun, Church brushed off a high ankle sprain for the last two months of the season, but a broken arm in Week 16 was too much to overcome in his quest for a third consecutive complete campaign. Despite the sprain and missing one game, the strong safety totaled 117 tackles (78 solo), which ranked third among defensive backs behind the Dolphins' Reshad Jones and the Bills' Corey Graham. Entering his age-28 season, Church is still within the window to produce elite numbers, and reaching triple digits in tackles would mark his third such occasion in four years.

    Jameis Winston looked sharp while throwing on the move on multiple occasions during Thursday's opening training camp session, Joe Kania of the team's official site reports.

    The Bucs had all of their quarterbacks on the move frequently during Thursday's opening camp session, giving Winston an opportunity to flash some of the newfound mobility that his 20-pound offseason weight loss has made possible. The sophomore signal-caller was effective while carrying out numerous bootlegs and impressively kept his eyes downfield while rolling out. If Winston is able to add a legitimate running dimension to his repertoire in Year 2, his expected leap forward would be that much more significant.

    Although Mark Sanchez worked with the starters on the first day of training camp, Trevor Siemian is expected to get half of the first-team reps, the Denver Post reports.

    Siemian will likely replace Sanchez as the first-team QB on Friday, with head coach Gary Kubiak saying he'll switch things up on a day-to-day basis. Meanwhile, rookie Paxton Lynch is technically part of the competition, but he isn't expected to get any first-team reps during the early part of camp.

    Griffin shouldn't have to wait long for a decision, as head coach Hue Jackson said Thursday he will definitely name a starting quarterback before the team's first preseason game Aug. 12, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    While expected to earn the job, Griffin will face competition from both Josh McCown and Cody Kessler. A quick decision would seem to work in Griffin's favor, but it's always possible preseason results could lead to a change before Week 1. In other Cleveland Browns news, Josh Gordon (quad) has been conditionally reinstated by the NFL, albeit with a four-game suspension to start the season. Gordon is expected to miss the first few weeks of training camp while he recovers from a quad injury he suffered over the summer.

    While Denver's QB competition will reportedly be "wide open", the 29-year-old Sanchez should have an early edge over second-year pro Trevor Siemian and rookie Paxton Lynch. All three signal-callers are expected to get work with the first-team offense during training camp, but that won't necessarily be the case in the preseason.

    Joe Flacco (torn ACL) plans to wear a protective knee brace for all of training camp and throughout the entire season, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports.

    Just eight months removed from suffering a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee, the 31-year-old quarterback is available for the start of Baltimore Ravens training camp. Although his Week 1 status doesn't seem to be in question, there is some chance his already-limited mobility will be affected. In any case, Flacco has just 654 rushing yards in 122 career games, though he has run for 13 touchdowns, mostly on QB sneaks.

    In conjunction with Tomlin's remarks, Bell wouldn't elaborate on the reason for allegedly missing drug tests, which precipitated his second ban related to the topic. The distraction aside, Bell expected to be fully recovered from last season's MCL and PCL tears at the start of training camp. The Pittsburgh Steelers ' first practice in the coming days will ultimately relay Bell's current level of health, but DeAngelo Williams is yet again in a prime position to have sustained relevance for the first quarter of the 2016 schedule.

    Rawls said in early July that he expected to be fully healthy entering training camp, but, with camp just a few days away, general manager John Schneider said that Rawls isn't likely to practice on Saturday, the first day of Seahawks camp. Despite not currently being at 100 percent, Rawls status for the regular season is not in question and he'll be the teams starting running back after playing well in relief of Marshawn Lynch last season.

    The New York Jets placed Khiry Robinson (lower leg) on the active/PUP list Thursday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

    Robinson remains embedded in his recovery from last season's broken tibia, but there's an expectation that he'll join the Jets at some point during the preseason. With Matt Forte leading a revamped backfield in 2016, Robinson will likely only see the field when Forte requires a breather, thereby limiting his utility. However, Robinson has averaged 4.1 YPC, while corralling 25 of his 31 career targets, so his all-purpose ability should help him earn playing time at some point in the upcoming campaign.

    A Grade 1 sprain is the least severe variety, but with plenty of time remaining in training camp, the Baltimore Ravens have no reason to rush Dixon back onto the practice field. While the rookie could conceivably return as soon as next week, a longer absence wouldn't necessarily be major cause for concern. Dixon is expected to compete for a role in a Baltimore backfield that also includes Justin Forsett, Javorius Allen, Terrance West and Lorenzo Taliaferro (foot). Dixon, Forsett and Allen are seemingly locks to make the final roster.

    Caldwell's lack of response doesn't necessarily mean anything, as Abdullah is still expected to be ready for the start of training camp Friday. The second-year pro is a clear favorite to earn the lead-back role, despite missing the Lions' entire offseason program after having surgery in January to repair a torn labrum. Abdullah finished his rookie year on a high note, even successfully playing through the aforementioned injury in his final two games.

    All New York Giants must pass a conditioning test in order to practice, and Cruz joined the majority of his teammates in accomplishing the feat. Throughout the offseason program, he was contained to individual drills, at best, whether the stage was OTAs or mandatory minicamp, but Thursday's success opens the door for some team drills. Knowing his rich injury history, though, the Giants will likely exercise caution in order to avoid any potholes along the route to (ideally) active status in Week 1.

    Doctson's placement on the active/PUP list belied the expectation that he'd be healthy at the outset of training camp, but tendinitis in his left Achilles and a separate foot injury will keep him away from the practice field. Considering the season is a marathon -- and not a sprint -- it behooves Washington's staff to take a cautious approach with the 22nd overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft. However, lacking Jamison Crowder's experience in the offense, Doctson is poised to fall even further behind in the competition for slotting in the receiving corps.

The team has yet to detail any sort of timeline for his return, but he is considered doubtful to play come Week 1. Entering his second season in the league, the Ohio State product is expected to assume a larger role on offense in 2016 due to his open-field speed and ability to stretch the field in the passing game.

    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. As a rookie (in 2015), Boswell converted 29 of 32 field goal attempts, with his longest coming from 51 yards, to go along with 26 of 27 extra point attempts. Despite, QB Ben Roethlisberger's desire to go for two points after every touchdown, Boswell should retain fantasy relevance as the leg for the Steelers' high-octane offense.

    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.
