    05/26/16RBAmeer AbdullahShoulderPROBABLEAbdullah 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.

    04/27/16DBAlex CarterAnklePROBABLEThe Lions elected to place cornerback Alex Carter on their short-term injured reserve list, according to the team's official website.
    04/27/16LBDeAndre LevyHipPROBABLELevy (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.

    04/27/16DBDavid BrutonLegPROBABLEWashington and Bruton agreed to a contract Monday, Stephen Czarda of the team's official site reports.

    The veteran safety primarily served on special teams during his seven-year stint with the Broncos, but eight starts litter his 104 career games. Last season, he received three nods in 13 appearances before suffering a season-ending broken right fibula in Week 15, finishing with 49 tackles (37 solo), two interceptions, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and one sack. Although he missed Denver's run to Super Bowl glory, he'll have the opportunity to lock down the first regular starting gig as a professional with Washington.

    04/27/16DBChris CulliverKneeQUESTIONABLECulliver was released by the Redskins on Monday.

    Culliver signed a four-year, $32 million deal with the Redskins just last offseason, but made only six appearances for Washington prior to suffering a torn ACL and MCL during a November practice. Not only is Culliver a high-priced veteran coming off an injury, but the Redskins also drafted cornerback Kendall Fuller in the third round, and made a huge splash by adding All-Pro corner Josh Norman recently as well. Given those considerations, the 27-year-old Culliver was made expendable and will now look to land elsewhere prior to the season.

    04/27/16RBSilas ReddSuspensionSUSPENDThe NFL has suspended Redd indefinitely for a violation of the league's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Bans of this variety are due to continued positive tests, which is evident as Redd has yet to serve a four-gamer for a similar violation due to his recovery from a torn ACL and MCL. Once healthy enough to return to the field, he'll have to bide his time and do his due diligence considering NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will be in charge of any reinstatement effort.
