    07/11/16TEMichael WilliamsKneeOUTWilliams tore his left ACL during Wednesday's practice and he'll likely be placed on Injured Reserve, Jim McBride of the Boston Globe reports.

    As expected, Williams' injury was a serious one as he was seen on crutches Thursday awaiting the unfortunate results. This ensures Clay Harbor's spot as the No. 3 option at tight end behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett heading into the 2016 season, as Williams enters a long road to recovery.

    04/27/16QBTom BradySuspensionSUSPENDWith 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 Patriots, while Brady will be eligible to return to action in Week 5 against the Browns.

    07/29/16DLMarcell DareusUndisclosedNFIDarby has been cleared to participate in practice following offseason foot surgery, The Buffalo News reports.

    Dareus, like most of the Bills' defensive players, had a poor year by his standards with just two sacks in 2015, but he's generally regarded as one of the league's best interior lineman and there's some hope that, with another year in Rex Ryan's system and the return of fellow lineman Kyle Williams, he can return to his dominating ways. Dareus posted 17.5 sacks over 2013 and 2014.

    07/29/16DBJonathan DowlingUndisclosedNFIThe Raiders announced a couple of roster moves prior to Sunday's game against the 49ers. The team placed safety Jonathan Dowling on injured reserve with a back injury and added tight end Scott Simonson to the 53-man active roster, per the San Francisco Chronicle.
    07/29/16LBManny LawsonUpper bodyNFILawton suffered an injury during a personal workout earlier this month and the Bills have listed him on the Active Non-Football Injury list, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    Lawson, usually a smart role player, is expected to play an even bigger role, perhaps a starting one, until rookie Shaq Lawson heals from shoulder surgery. We'll see if this is just a short-term concern, as the Bills would find themselves digging pretty deep for outside linebacker help if it wasn't, and that be a shame before the season even started.

    07/29/16WRKolby ListenbeeUndisclosedNFIThe Bills have signed Listenbee (hernia) to a rookie contract, The Buffalo News reports.

    Listenbee is an all-out burner who will instantly be one the league's fastest players. He was chosen in the sixth round for a reason, however, as he's not that big and never ran much more than deep routes at TCU. That said, the Bills have Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods and then a whole host of guys jockeying for the rest of the receiving spots. Listenbee will try to use his speed to show the team value as a guy that can open up defenses and take the pressure of Watkins.

    07/18/16RBKarlos WilliamsSuspensionSUSPENDWilliam has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's substance abuse policy, NFL.com reports.

    Williams' suspension comes just one day after fellow Bills running back Jonathan Williams was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated. Additionally, Williams' poor conditioning was called out by coach Rex Ryan last month, so his suspension only compounds an unimpressive first NFL offseason. After posting 5.6 yards per carry and scoring nine touchdowns in 11 games as a rookie, Williams now won't be eligible to play until Week 5 against the Rams. Until then, Mike Gillislee and the aforementioned Williams will have the opportunity to earn valuable touches behind starter LeSean McCoy (ankle).
