Abdullah underwent shoulder surgery in January to repair a torn labrum and he could miss the remainder of the offseason as he continues to rehab, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Abdullah is coming off a rookie campaign with the Lions in which he led the team in rushing yards with 597 on 143 carries, while he played the final two games of the season with an injured shoulder that would eventually require surgery. The team has elected to proceed cautiously during their potential starting running back's rehab until training camp, but he appears to be ahead of schedule. Abdullah's Week 1 status isn't currently in doubt, while Theo Riddick, Stevan Ridley, Zach Zenner, and incoming rookie Dwayne Washington should see additional opportunities this offseason with Abdullah sidelined.
Levy (hip) is expected to be fully healthy by training camp, NFL.com reports.
Levy is coming off a season in which he was limited to merely 17 snaps due to a hip injury that required surgery in October. After spending so much time out, Levy returned for the start of the Lions offseason workouts last month and has reportedly looked good in the process. As Levy continues to increase his workload, he's expected to be fully healthy by training camp, which would represent a needed boost to a Lions defense that faltered without him last season.
Bryant (suspension) will participate in the Browns' offseason program despite being suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season, Cleveland.com reports.
Bryant is not only suspended for the first quarter of this season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances, but he was also indicted in February on felony drug charges. Despite those troubling off-field issues, Bryant will be with the Browns when their offseason program begins next month, even though his status with the team beyond then remains a bit more uncertain.
The NFL has denied Gordon's request for reinstatement from his one-year suspension for repeated violations of the league's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Gordon's next opportunity to apply for reinstatement will arrive on Aug. 1, according Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
On Monday, it was widely reported that Gordon had failed a drug test in March. Both the A and B samples were revealed to have "traces of marijuana and dilute," and despite the former falling short of the threshold required for a positive test, his presence in Stage 3 of the drug program sealed his fate. Once Aug. 1 rolls around, Gordon will have the chance to reapply, though commissioner Roger Goodell is notorious for taking longer than the 60-day mandate for a response recommended under the current CBA. As a result, Gordon is in danger of missing his second season in a row.
