  • Adrian Peterson MIN RB
    Vikings' Adrian Peterson: Still expected to get heavy workload
    4m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Adrian Peterson is expected to get a similar workload to previous seasons with Minnesota offensive coordinator Norv Turner hoping to get Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata more work due to the offense running more plays, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Turner said he hasn't seen any signs of Peterson slowing down at age 31. It sounds like the team still expects to give him a heavy workload (he's averaged 19.8 per game in his career). The Minnesota Vikings haven't said whether Peterson will play in Sunday's preseason game, but they've left the door open that he could appear in the first game at the team's new home stadium. Either way, he appears healthy after missing some early training camp practices with a sore hamstring.

    Matt Forte (hamstring) said he will play in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants, The Record reports.

    Forte was held out of the New York Jets ' first two preseason contests, but he'll make his likely sole appearance before the regular season after returning to normal practice this week. Forte is expected to handle a bulk of the carries this season, so getting him some game reps before Week 1 was important.

    Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Hauls in deep throw in Wednesday practice
    42m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Mike Evans beat Browns Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden on a deep route in Wednesday's joint practice.

    The third-year receiver continued his impressive summer with an nice catch downfield in which he beat the talented cover man to haul in the throw from QB Jameis Winston. Evans has looked dominant at times in practices throughout camp and it was certainly encouraging to see him do so Wednesday against a high caliber of competition. He'll try to follow up his strong showings with a productive effort in what should be extended action against the Browns in the Bucs' dress rehearsal for the regular season on Friday night.

    Buccaneers' Daryl Smith: Held out of practice again Wednesday

    Daryl Smith (undisclosed) sat out another practice on Wednesday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    There continues to be no official explanation for the veteran linebacker's absence, which is now at a full week and included last Saturday's preseason contest versus the Jaguars. Smith is presumably not in any danger of missing regular season time, although without any exact details on the injury, it's impossible to determine a timetable for return. At minimum, his chances of playing in Friday's tilt against the Browns appear dim at this stage.

    The second-year pro remained a spectator for the third consecutive practice and is losing valuable opportunities to make his case for a spot on the latter half of the Bucs' wide receiver depth chart. Spencer has two receptions for 27 yards over the first two weeks of preseason, with his injury having been sustained in last Saturday's tilt against the Jaguars. His status for Friday's matchup versus the Browns looks to be highly in question at this point in time.

    Taylor Heinicke (ankle) has shed the walking boot he wore to protect his foot from further injury, Scout.com reports.

    Heinicke declined to talk about his injury after practice, reportedly saying it was time to go lift weights. If those were indeed his plans, his foot may be further along than anticipated. However, Shaun Hill has done nothing to relinquish his role as the backup to starter Teddy Bridgewater, and the Minnesota Vikings project to carry only two quarterbacks on their active roster entering the regular season. Ultimately, Heinicke appears destined for either the practice squad or injured reserve list in 2016.

  • Matthew Stafford DET QB
    Lions' Matthew Stafford: Believes Lions' offense can be 'dangerous'
    20h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Matthew Stafford acknowledged the complexity of OC Jim Bob Cooter's offense, but believes the Detroit Lions ' offense will be "dangerous" once players are able to fully learn the system, the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Calvin Johnson's retirement signaled the end of an era in Motown, and the Detroit front office presumably understood the team can't employ the same offensive game plan anymore. Hence, the Lions installed a "newfangled, whiz-bang, up-tempo, no-huddle offense" this spring. Fundamentally, the idea is to tire the defense as well as limit the other team's ability to both substitute players and call plays to counter the offense. However, the scheme's watchword is communication, as Cooter devised a way to allow Stafford to realign the offensive formation and call plays with a system of simple commands. In the past, simplicity has benefitted Stafford, most recently when Cooter took control of the offense in the midst of the 2015 campaign. Here, Stafford did not experience an increase in attempted passes, but rather an increase in per-clip efficiency. Case in point, Stafford's final eight games in 2015 extrapolate to a highly-efficient 4,358-yard, 38-touchdown, four-interception stat line across 16 games while his first-half numbers project an underwhelming line of 4,166 yards, 26 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. Those two sets of numbers could very well represent Stafford's ceiling and floor entering the 2016 campaign. Regardless, Stafford appears poised to continue on his current trajectory and resume his late-2015 efficiency come the start of the regular season against the Colts' injury-marred secondary.

    Trevor Siemian (shoulder) was able to make throws at practice Wednesday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

    A sore shoulder has limited Siemian's activity level of late and even forced the quarterback to nix throwing from his workload Tuesday. Just one day later, though, he was easing into tosses, backing up his "day-to-day" status. With that knowledge, he'll start Saturday's preseason game versus the Rams, assuming any lingering discomfort has subsided.

    Wentz suffered a hairline rib fracture in the preseason opener and hasn't taken the field since. His last chance to return will be on Sept. 1 in the final preseason game against the Jets. With Wentz out, Sam Bradford has cemented his role as the Philadelphia Eagles ' starting quarterback this preseason and should see a majority of the reps on Saturday night.

Zimmer said Bridgewater had no limitations in Tuesday's practice, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Bridgewater was held out of Minnesota's second preseason game and didn't throw during pracice Saturday and Sunday. However, his return to practice Tuesday without any limitations should alleviate any concerns about his status for the start of the regular season, even if he doesn't play in the preseason again.

    49ers' Blaine Gabbert: QB decision looming in San Francisco
    1d ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Head coach Chip Kelly has yet to name the San Francisco 49ers ' starting quarterback due to Colin Kaepernick's shoulder concern, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. "It's a competition, and Kap hasn't had a chance to perform yet," offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins said. "So, when that happens and when coach [Kelly] feels like it's time, we'll do that. But right now it's not time."

    Entering training camp as the co-No. 1 quarterbacks, Blaine Gabbert and Kaepernick were expected to split reps with the first-team offense in both practices and games, but the latter's bout with "dead arm" has forced Kelly to shelve his decision for the time being. With Kaepernick logging full practices both Monday and Tuesday, he declared an expectation that he'll play in Friday's exhibition against the Packers, which should reopen the battle for the top QB job in San Francisco. In six total drives this preseason, Gabbert has produced 14 points, while completing 10 of 19 passes for 132 yards and one touchdown.

    Wendell Smallwood (quadriceps) is slated to take the field for Saturday's preseason game at Indianapolis, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Smallwood missed back-to-back contests to kick off exhibition season, but increasing his workload little by little for two weeks will seemingly yield an appearance Saturday. A cautious approach is expected, though, as the running back's quad continues to heal. All but guaranteed a roster spot due to his status as a 2016 fifth-round selection, he could be relegated to weekly inactives in-season with Ryan Mathews, Darren Sproles, and Kenjon Barner all positioned ahead of Smallwood on the depth chart.

    Absent from practice for weeks due to a strained hamstring, Prosise took part in drills Monday with an eye toward an appearance in Thursday's game. Indeed, that will come to pass, but the Seattle Seahawks won't press their luck in the latter phase of exhibition season.

After a donning a walking boot Saturday, he ditched it within a day, yet still missed Tuesday's session due to lingering discomfort. Langford is trending in the right direction for active status in Saturday's exhibition against the Chiefs, but the Chicago Bears wouldn't be questioned if they held out their clear lead running back.

    With Matt Jones (shoulder) ruled out for the remainder of the preseason, Keith Marshall is expected to receive first-team reps in Friday's game against the Bills.

    Both Marshall and undrafted rookie Rob Kelley are expected to get carries with the starting unit, according to head coach Jay Gruden. The two are in a close competition for the No. 3 spot on Washington's depth chart, leaving a legitimate chance that one back will be sent packing during roster cuts. If Marshall wants to edge out the competition, he'll need a stronger showing than his past preseason performances, as he's totaled 25 yards on 15 carries the past two games.

    Donteea Dye is making a strong case for a roster spot through his work at both receiver and returner, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "He's battling. You can see not only his work at wide receiver, but he's doing good things on special teams," coach Dirk Koetter said after Wednesday's practice. "When you're talking about your fourth and fifth wideouts, they have to play on special teams as well. He's making a good case."

    The second-year receiver stood out again in Wednesday's joint practice session with the Browns, hauling in four straight passes from Mike Glennon at one point during two-minute drills while working with the second-team offense. Dye also capped off practice with a would-be touchdown from Jameis Winston in a seven-on-seven red-zone drill. The Heidelberg product was raw last season after toiling away at the Division III level in college, but progressed after being thrown into the NFL fire due to Louis Murphy's season-ending ACL tear, finishing the 2015 campaign with 11 receptions for 132 yards and a touchdown. Dye is also working as the top kick returner this summer, a role that could well be pivotal to the speedster surviving final cuts.

    Roberto Aguayo , who admitted to Jenna Laine of ESPN.com on Monday that he might be overthinking when kicking, had another three misses in Tuesday's joint practice with the Browns, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The rookie kicker had admitted Monday that he was perhaps focusing "too much on detail and techniques" on the misses he'd had until that point, and that he just needed to "kick the ball." That approach would have come in handy Tuesday, when Aguayo misfired on three kicks in the joint practice session, including one particular miss that drew groans from the crowd. Head coach Dirk Koetter made no bones about his kicker's struggles when speaking to the media, but deferred any questions to general manager Jason Licht about whether another kicker might be brought in as competition for the 2016 second-round pick if the struggles continue. "He's struggling," coach Dirk Koetter conceded after Tuesday's practice. "He's struggling a little bit right now. He has to work his way through it. We've talked to him. He knows what he has to do.

    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.
