    05/18/16WRDanny AmendolaKnee, ankleQUESTIONABLEThough Amendola underwent a procedure on his left knee this offseason and also had bone spurs removed from his ankle, ESPN's Mike Reiss relays that he has been informed that the wideout's ailments have been portrayed as "minor" and "not a long-term" concern.

    The report also encouragingly notes that Amendola's rehab "has been on a positive track and he's already moving well." While the wideout's on-field activities figure to be limited as training camp approaches, the ESPN report offers an optimistic angle which suggests that Amendola in on pace to be ready for the start of the coming season. In the meantime, with top wideout Julian Edelman bouncing back from foot woes, the likes of Chris Hogan, Nate Washington, Aaron Dobson, Malcolm Mitchell and Devin Lucien should see added reps during the Patriots' upcoming OTAs and minicamps.

    05/18/16WRJulian EdelmanFootPROBABLEThe Patriots are highly optimistic Edelman (foot) will be ready for training camp, CSN New England reports.

    Edelman broke his left foot Nov. 15 and missed the rest of the regular season, but he returned for New England's two playoff games, catching 17 passes for 153 yards on a whopping 29 targets. He then had a minor clean-up procedure on his foot during the offseason, and while he was recently spotted wearing a protective boot, the Patriots reportedly aren't too concerned. Assuming he recovers as expected, Edelman could spend a good portion of camp working with Jimmy Garoppolo, who's in line to replace Tom Brady (suspension) for the first four games of the season. Though facing long odds, Brady may file further appeals in an effort to have his suspension overturned or delayed.

    05/18/16RBDion LewisKneeQUESTIONABLEAlthough the Patriots continue to take a cautious approach, Lewis (knee) is progressing well in his recovery form a torn ACL, ESPN.com reports.

    With training camp still two months away, the Patriots have no incentive to rush Lewis' progress. Having suffered his torn ACL in early November, Lewis will be 10 months removed from the incident by Week 1. If healthy, he figures to again work in tandem with LeGarrette Blount in the New England backfield. Lewis is believed to be on track for Week 1.

    04/27/16QBTom BradySuspensionSUSPENDBrady and his legal team will file their appeal Monday of the four-game suspension that was reinstated April 25 for his alleged role in "Deflategate", the Boston Herald reports.

    Brady will seek a second hearing by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which will then have to decide by majority vote whether to rehear Brady's case. Should Brady be granted another hearing, he and the NFLPA's legal team are expected to present a case centered around commissioner Roger Goodell's mishandling of the situation, particularly as it regards to the NFL's collective bargaining agreement. Monday marked the last day for Brady to file his appeal, and if the court refuses to rehear the case, Brady could then appeal his four-game suspension to the Supreme Court.

    04/27/16DBMalcolm ButlerKneePROBABLEButler missed the Pro Bowl due to a sprained knee, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports. "There was a play on third down [in the AFC championship game] when I made a tackle or something like that and bent my knee back," Butler said Friday in San Francisco. "It swelled up pretty bad. I didn't feel it during the game because of all the adrenaline pumping. When we got back, it swelled up pretty bad, and the team just decided it was a good thing to sit me out."

    Butler became instantly famous with his game-winning interception of Russell Wilson in last year's Super Bowl, and the loss of Darrelle Revis in free agency elevated him to the Patriots' No. 1 cornerback. The pseudo promotion worked wonders, as Butler notched 67 tackles (56 solo), 15 passes defended, and two interceptions while regularly drawing the opponent's top wide receiver over the course of his second campaign. While his recovery effort won't include surgery, rest and regular icing sessions have been his regimen to date.

    04/27/16LBTony StewardBackPROBABLESteward has been placed on injured reserve due to a back injury suffered in Sunday's win over Houston, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    Starter Nigel Bradham may not be able to make it back from his ankle injury this week. If that doesn't happen, the Bills would be down their top two guys at the inside linebacker spot next to Preston Brown.

    05/20/16DBJalen RamseyKneeQUESTIONABLERamsey (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp, as his torn meniscus merely needed to be trimmed, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

    Ramsey's partially-torn meniscus turned out to be an easy fix, and while he may be limited for the start of camp, he'll likely have plenty of time to prepare for Week 1. It's unclear how Jacksonville plans to use the No. 5 overall draft pick, but it's safe to assume he'll have a key role, if healthy. Ramsey is capable of playing both safety and corner -- the former seems to be a bigger area of need in Jacksonville. If he were to work as an every-down safety, Ramsey would likely be a useful IDP from the get-go.

    04/27/16DBAaron ColvinSuspensionSUSPENDColvin has been suspended for the first four games of the 2016 regular season for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances, The Florida Times-Union reports.

    Colvin will remain eligible to participate in offseason and preseason activities, but will be sidelined for four games once the regular season kicks off. With Colvin out, offseason signing Price Amukamara becomes increasingly likely to start opposite Davon House at cornerback to begin this season.

    04/27/16DLDante FowlerKneePROBABLEThe Jaguars have finalized the process of ending the season of defensive end and top pick Dante Fowler by placing him on injured reserve.
    04/27/16DLSen'Derrick MarksTricepsPROBABLEMarks (triceps) will not participate in the Jaguars' OTAs.

    Marks is coming off a torn triceps that limited him to just four games last year, when his season didn't start until October due to a torn ACL suffered in 2014. Considering Marks posted a career-high 8.5 sacks that season, the Jaguars are understandably taking things slow with Marks to ensure he returns to full health when needed this season, thus explaining his absence of OTAs.

    (Updated 05/23/2016)
    04/27/16LBTelvin SmithShoulderPROBABLESmith (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans.

    The 2014 fifth-rounder finishes up his 2015 season with a fantasy-friendly 128 tackles, to go along with 2.5 sacks and a pick in 14 games. He's on track to reprise his starting outside linebacker role for the Jags in 2016, an assignment that will make Smith -- whose shoulder issue will not require offseason surgery -- worthy of continued IDP utility next year.

    (Updated 01/01/2016)
    04/30/15WRJustin BlackmonSuspensionSUSPENDBlackmon was reportedly arrested Saturday in Ardmore, Oklahoma for driving under the influence, the Florida Times-Union reports.

    Blackmon, who hasn't played since October of 2013, remains under contract with the Jaguars, but it seems increasingly unlikely that he'll play for the team again. At this time, the 25-year-old wideout remains under an indefinite suspension from the NFL.
