    Vikings' Latavius Murray: Has ankle surgery for bone spurs

    's ankle surgery was related to bone spurs, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Less than a week removed from signing with the , Murray went under the knife Wednesday for an issue that became known during a mandated physical. He's expected to be healthy in time for training camp, but his absence from the offseason program could put him behind the eight ball as he attempts to build a rapport with quarterback Sam Bradford and the rest of the offense. Throughout three seasons with the Raiders, he averaged 4.2 YPC and gathered in 91 of 119 targets (76.5 percent). Typically, sure hands would indicate that he's poised for a three-down role, but Jerick McKinnon has experience within the system, while the Vikings are a candidate to select a running back in April's draft, two factors that may place a damper on Murray's expectations.

    Suh was unable to attend this year's Pro Bowl after undergoing a cleanup knee procedure in January. Considering the 30-year-old will have had roughly two and a half months to recuperate by the time the Dolphins' offseason program starts up on April 17th, he should have ample time to be back at full strength given the minor nature of his surgery. Thus, his expected availability for the start of offseason workouts is certainly warranted.

With the knowledge of Wednesday's surgery, expect the Vikings to tab another RB in next month's NFL Draft.

In 2016, he notched 469 rushing yards and seven total touchdowns with the Seahawks before he was waived in favor of C.J. Prosise (shoulder) and Thomas Rawls. Quickly snatched up by the Packers, Michael managed 47 carries for 172 yards and one TD across the rest of the way as a late-game alternative to Ty Montgomery. If Michael returns to Green Bay, he'll likely hold down a similar role with Eddie Lacy (ankle) officially out of the picture, depending on how the Packers proceed with the backfield as the offseason unfolds.

While Hackenberg's struggles in practice kept him behind Petty on the depth chart, the Jets apparently still believe the former has a higher long-term ceiling than the latter. Hackenberg may well be headed for another season as the No. 3 quarterback, but that doesn't mean he won't have a shot to compete with McCown and Petty for the starting job in training camp. It sounds as if Hackenberg would be a long shot in such a competition, unless he is drastically improved from what the Jets saw in practice last year.

    Newton suffered a partial tear of his right rotator cuff in Week 14 of last season, after which his practice participation alternated between limited and full in preparation for the final three games. While he didn't miss an offensive snap down the stretch, he statistically posted the worst campaign of his six-year career, completing a miserable 53 percent of his throws for 3,509 yards with a 19:14 TD:INT ratio, while failing to reach 500 yards on the ground (359 yards, to be exact) for the first time. After the season, the Panthers placed a specific rehab schedule upon him. "We developed a plan for Cam to take a period of rest, a period of rehabilitation and treatment, and then start a gradual throwing program the first part of March," head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion said. "Cam started his program, and the early parts of his rehab had been going well. However, as we worked to advance him into the next stage -- the strengthening stage, the throwing stage -- he started to have an increase in his pain level and started having pain while throwing. As a result, Dr. Pat Connor [head team physician] felt the most prudent procedure would be to arthroscopically repair the shoulder." Newton is expected to require 12 weeks before commencing "an early throwing program" and 16 weeks before throwing in a team setting. With attendance during the offseason program ruled out, he'll aim to be ready by the start of training camp in late July.

    With New York and possibly Houston off the table, Cutler is running out of potential landing spots that would give him a clear path to a starting job. A return to Denver might be an option, but it seems more likely the Broncos will just move forward with their young quarterbacks -- Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian -- if they don't acquire Tony Romo. It probably wouldn't be hard for Cutler to find work as a well-compensated backup, but it's unclear if he'd be amenable to such a situation. Houston's lack of interest in Cutler may stem from a belief that the team will land Romo.

    may be a long shot to play in 2017 after the signed veteran quarterback Josh McCown on Monday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    The Jets' QB corps endured ineffectiveness or injuries last season, with all of Ryan Fitzpatrick, Geno Smith (torn ACL), and Bryce Petty (shoulder) missing time due to a variety of concerns. Despite all that, Hackenberg wasn't active once, but with Fitzpatrick and Smith out of the picture, he and Petty were the only signal-callers on the roster until management opted to bring McCown into the fold. McCown can be considered a stop-gap option as Petty and Hackenberg develop, but the veteran is a good bet to add to his cluttered medical chart as the 2017 campaign wears on. If McCown yields the top job at some point, Petty would likely be given the first shot to fill in after making four starts (among six appearances) in 2016. There's also the possibility that the Jets draft a quarterback for the third consecutive offseason, thereby throwing another hat into the ring. Consequently, Hackenberg appears set for regular healthy scratches for the second straight year.

Coming off an injury-plagued season in which he averaged only 3.5 yards per carry in nine games, Williams doesn't seem to be drawing much attention from other teams. The Steelers recently signed Knile Davis to boost their backfield depth, but the new addition doesn't necessarily preclude Williams from returning, as Davis owns a career YPC of just 3.2 and has done his best work as a kick returner. Should he ultimately return to Pittsburgh for another season, Williams would mostly have value as a handcuff for Le'Veon Bell owners. However, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette believes Williams is unlikely to re-sign.

A 2013 sixth-round selection, Rivera caught 38 passes as a rookie and 58 more in 2014, but he only had 32 and 18 receptions the past two seasons while ceding snaps to Clive Walford -- whose own inconsistency contributed to Oakland's recent signing of Jared Cook. Rivera is a decent underneath target, but his lack of speed and ideal size will make it tough for him to re-emerge on the fantasy radar, regardless of where he ultimately signs.

    Buccaneers' Roberto Aguayo: Has renewed pressure with Folk signing
    2d ago

    is facing a make-or-break training camp and preseason with the recent signing of Nick Folk, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

    The much-heralded 2016 second-round pick from Florida State had a rocky start to his NFL career, making just 71 percent of his 31 field-goal attempts, worst in the league in 2016. Aguayo's problems were largely centered on kicks of 40-plus yards, a distance from which he was only 4-for-10 despite his longest attempt on the season coming from just 43 yards away. It was a stark contrast to his storied college career, one that saw him win the Lou Groza Award and leave the Seminoles as the most accurate kicker in NCAA history. Aguayo certainly has the pedigree to right the ship, however, and also can look to two of the league's longest-tenured and most successful kickers, fellow FSU alumnus Sebastian Janikowski and Stephen Gostkowski, for inspiration. The former went 22-for-32 in his rookie season in 2000 after enduring even more pressure as a first-round pick, while the latter was successful on just 70 percent of his attempts in his first season as well. Folk certainly serves as formidable competition for Aguayo, though, considering his proven track record and the fact that he boasts success rates of between 81.3 and 91.7 percent on his attempts over the last four seasons.
