    Tom Brady could be out of options and very well may have to serve that four-game suspension for his involvement in Deflategate.

    The Saints and Bills may be at different places when it comes to their franchise quarterback situation, but both understand the important of protecting whoever's under center.

    Luckily, the two will see each other twice during the season.

    The Bills used the final pick in the fourth round on former Ohio State QB Cardale Jones -- except that Jones didn't believe it at first, even when the Bills called him to give him in the news.

    04/27/16WRDez BryantFootPROBABLEBryant's recovery from offseason foot surgery is proceeding on schedule, The Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports. "I'm doing good," Bryant said. "I've got a chip on my shoulder. It's going to be good."

    After breaking his foot in Week 1, Bryant was ineffective in his return to action following surgery and had a second procedure performed once the regular season was over. He missed basically the entire offseason and preseason last year due to a contract dispute and hamstring injury, but the Cowboys are expecting him to be recovered in time to part part in most or all of the team's offseason activities in 2016.

    (Updated 03/24/2016)
    04/27/16DBBarry ChurchArmPROBABLEChurch ended the season on IR due to a broken arm, but still recorded 117 tackles in 15 games.

    It's the second time in his career that he's topped 100 tackles in a season, but Church failed to record an interception or even a pass defended in 2015, and the 27-year-old safety has increasingly been seen as a liability in pass coverage. First round pick Byron Jones seems like a lock to fill one of the safety spots for the Cowboys next season, but there's no guarantee that Church will be lined up next to him.

    (Updated 01/07/2016)
    04/27/16DLTyrone CrawfordShoulderPROBABLECrawford will undergo surgery Thursday to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder, ESPN Dallas reports.

    He played through the shoulder injury in the second half and Crawford was something of a disappointment after signing a big contract last offseason, finishing 2015 with 35 tackles including five sacks. If he can stay healthy next year, he still has a chance to develop into a disruptive inside force on the Cowboys' defensive line.

    (Updated 01/07/2016)
    04/27/16RBLance DunbarKneeQUESTIONABLEThe Cowboys aren't yet sure when Dunbar (torn ACL) will be able to resume football activities, and he could begin the regular season on the PUP list, Rob Phillips of DallasCowboys.com reports.

    If that were the case, Dunbar would be required to miss the first six weeks of the season, but the progress of his recovery from the knee injury that ended his 2015 campaign should become clearer once training camp draws closer.

    (Updated 03/22/2016)
    04/27/16TEGavin EscobarAchillesQUESTIONABLEEscobar's recovery from a torn right Achilles may extend into the upcoming season, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.

    Escobar sustained the injury on Dec. 19, so it's no surprise that the lengthy rehabilitation required of such an ailment is poised to impact his offseason regimen. If training camp reps are few and far to come by, a stay on the PUP list could be in the cards. Among those set to pick up the slack behind Jason Witten are James Hanna and Geoff Swaim.

    (Updated 04/13/2016)
    04/27/16DLRandy GregorySuspensionSUSPENDGregory has been suspended for the first four games of next season due to a violation of the league's substance abuse policy, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

    Gregory notoriously slipped to the second round in last year's draft, despite being considered one of the best pass rushers available, after he was caught with marijuana in his system at the combine, and it looks like he hasn't yet cleaned up his act. This could put more pressure on the Cowboys to either re-sign Greg Hardy, select another pass-rushing DE like Joey Bosa or Noah Spence in this year's draft, or both.

    (Updated 02/19/2016)
    04/27/16DLDemarcus LawrenceSuspensionSUSPENDLawrence has received a four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's substance-abuse policy, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Previously, Lawrence was handed a four-game fine for a similar violation, making this another check mark against the defensive end. The Cowboys will already be without Randy Gregory for the first four games of the 2016 season due to the violation of the same policy. Thus, the team will almost certainly be in the market for a pass rusher in the upcoming NFL Draft.

    04/27/16LBSean LeeHamstringPROBABLELee underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Friday, but is expected to recover from the procedure within two weeks and participate in OTAs in late May, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Injuries have been a constant throughout Lee's six-year career, but it sounds like this latest operation is more of a cleanup procedure that shouldn't dim the linebacker's outlook heading into 2016. He's expected to start on the weak side again for the Cowboys after accruing 128 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 14 games last season while earning his first Pro Bowl nod.

    (Updated 05/01/2016)
    04/27/16QBTony RomoCollarboneQUESTIONABLERomo said Saturday that his rehab from collarbone surgery continues to go well and that he's been able to fully participate in his throwing program for over a week, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports. "It's been going great [during unofficial team workouts] for the last two, three weeks - just getting them going and being able to go full speed and all that stuff. It's been great," Romo said. "I can throw fully. I've been throwing fully here for a good week and a half, two weeks. It's been good."

    It's certainly encouraging that Romo's recovery has gone without a hitch so far, but there will still be a lot of question marks around the 36-year-old in 2016 after he played in just four games last season due to two collarbone fractures, and hasn't made it through a full 16-game schedule unscathed since 2012. If he's able to stay healthy the Cowboys have the talent around him to make Romo a very productive fantasy QB, but at this point that remains a very large 'if'.

    (Updated 04/17/2016)
    04/27/16DBOrlando ScandrickKneeQUESTIONABLEScandrick's recovery from a torn ACL is going well, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

    While he could be healthy enough to participate in some offseason activities, the Cowboys plan on treating Scandrick much the same way they treated Sean Lee the year before as he recovered from his own torn ACL, with a focus on getting him ready for the start of training camp. Lee came back and played 14 games in 2015, missing one due to a concussion and the season finale with a hamstring strain, so the team is confident that with a similar program, Scandrick will be at full strength for Week 1.

    San Diego Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    04/27/16DBBrandon FlowersKneePROBABLEFlowers was placed on injured reserve Saturday, ESPN's Eric Williams reports.

    The injuries just keep coming for the Chargers. Flowers, a key cog in the team's defense, will join Corey Liueget on the sidelines after the team opted to place both players on IR. Steve Williams or Greg Ducre will likely get the start in place of Flowers.

    (Updated 12/12/2015)
    04/27/16RBMelvin GordonKneePROBABLEGordon (knee) recently admitted he was "terrible" during his rookie season, but he's confident that the year of experience will help him in 2016, ESPN.com reports.

    The 15th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, Gordon posted an ugly 184-641-0 rushing line (3.5 YPC) in 14 games as a rookie, eventually missing the final two contests with a meniscus injury. He should recover from early-January surgery before the start of training camp, and he'll likely get most of the first-team snaps, albeit with Danny Woodhead handling third-down duties. As he admitted, Gordon was a big part of the problem during his rookie season, but it obviously isn't his fault that the San Diego offensive line was ravaged by an unusual number of injuries.

    (Updated 04/21/2016)
    04/27/16WRSteve JohnsonGroinPROBABLEAfter missing the final four games of the regular season, Johnson finished 2015 with 45 catches for 497 yards and three touchdowns in ten games.

    Johnson missed a total of six games because a hamstring injury caused him to miss Weeks 5 and 6 in addition to missing the last four games of the year due to a groin injury. When he was healthy, he was a productive slot receiver who would typically make four or five catches per game on a good passing team. Johnson should be back for more of the same in 2016.

    (Updated 01/07/2016)
    04/27/16DLCorey LiugetFootPROBABLELiuget is feeling "much better" after he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in December, Micahel Gehlken of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Liuget had tallied 34 tackles (28 solo) and three sacks before his Week 13 injury against the Broncos. The 26-year-old, who signed a five-year extension prior to last year's training camp, reportedly weighed between 313-315 pounds throughout the 2015 season, but is expecting to cut his weight down to 295 by the season opener. With the Chargers selecting Joey Bosa with the third overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Liuget and Bosa could form an impressive duo on the defensive line capable of wreaking havoc on opposing offenses should both players stay healthy.

    (Updated 05/03/2016)
    04/27/16RBBranden OliverToePROBABLEOliver -- who is dealing with turf toe -- was on crutches, with his right foot in a protective boot Monday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    If Oliver is forced to miss time, Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead should pick up some extra snaps in the Chargers' backfield, with Donald Brown a candidate to be activated for next Monday's game against the Bears.

    (Updated 11/02/2015)
    04/27/16DBJason VerrettHamstringPROBABLEVerrett (hamstring) has begun working out with fellow Chargers teammates, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.

    Verrett, who missed the Chargers final game of the regular season due to a hamstring injury, was spotted working out with a few members of the secondary at a training facility in California. San Diego's leader in interceptions last year, Verrett is expected to take over more of a leadership role on defense with veteran captain Eric Weddle widely expected to sign with another team during the offseason.
