    07/11/16RBThomas RawlsAnklePROBABLERawls (ankle) expects himself to be "full go the first week of training camp", Jayson Jenks of the Seattle Times reports.

    In late May, Rawls was reportedly expected to be "eased" into training camp when the time came. Now, further into the summer and just weeks before the start of camp, Rawls' self-endorsement of health doesn't mean his ankle has fully recovered, but suggests the running back hasn't experienced any setbacks in his return and further supports the notion that he will be ready for Seattle's season-opener in Miami.

    05/17/16TEJimmy GrahamKneeQUESTIONABLEAlthough Graham (knee) is expected to "ease into training camp," head coach Pete Carroll believes that the tight end will be ready for the regular season, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

    The Seahawks held their first batch of OTAs this week, which Graham was unable to participate in, as expected. However, he fit in some light running and caught some passes on the side Thursday, so he seems to have reached a good place in his recovery from a torn patellar tendon in his right knee. In the end, his ability to handle snaps during the preseason will forecast if he's on pace to be on the field in Week 1.

    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).

    07/11/16WRMarcus EasleyKneeQUESTIONABLEEasley, who shattered his knee cap in three places during Week 16, is mostly recovered and is hoping to be on the field for at least part of training camp, BuffaloBills.com reports.
    07/11/16DLShaq LawsonShoulderQUESTIONABLELawson signed his rookie contract Monday, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    The real question is how much time Lawson's recent shoulder surgery ends up costing him during the first year of his contract. Right now, the team seems to still love the value they got in the middle of the first round, and Lawson's attitude in offseason practices seems to be impressing anyone. However, it may be awhile before we see him in action again. Manny Lawson will serve as the placeholder for Shaq Lawson's presumed starting OLB spot while the rookie continues to heal.

    07/11/16WRSammy WatkinsFootQUESTIONABLEWatkins says his surgically repaired foot is ready for anything. He's doing full workouts with little in the way of limitations, but still says he needs to gain confidence with his speed cuts, especially when cutting left and putting torque on the repaired left foot. "That's something I'm not comfortable with," said the third-year receiver. "I can do any other route except that route. I'm just kind of tense about it. My foot is tense about it."

    Even though the Bills are one of the most run-oriented teams in the league, the passing game goes through Watkins and there was a stretch last season where he within earshot of the Antonio Browns of the league. He hasn't proved he can stay healthy enough or avoid periods of inconsistency where he's a cream-of-the-crop fantasy guy, but he's not that far off either. It'll be worth watching to see how quickly the staff incorporates him into training camp practices, but so far, so good in the recovery and we wouldn't knock him down too much from where he stood pre-injury.

    04/27/16DLJerry HughesUpper bodyQUESTIONABLEHughes finished the 2015 season with 52 tackles, five sacks, four passes defensed, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. He played in all 16 games for the fourth straight season, while seeing action on 92.5 percent of the defensive snaps.

    Hughes picked up 67 points in standard IDP scoring after putting up 90 the previous season, and that's mostly due to the drop in sacks. If your league counts passes defensed, he closed that gap a bit. In truth, almost every member of the Bills' defensive line struggled with Rex Ryan's new system, and there's little reason Hughes can't get back to double-digit sacks in 2016 as his familiarity in a complex scheme grows. Hughes also took some dumb penalties in 2015, and it won't sit well with the coaching staff if he doesn't clean that up permanently.
