    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.

    05/17/16RBRyan MathewsGroinPROBABLEMathews and teammate Darren Sproles are being pegged as the Eagles' primary running backs following the trade of DeMarco Murray, Philly.com reports.

    Mathews' future with the Eagles was somewhat uncertain earlier this week, but after Murray was traded, executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman expressed confidence in Mathews and Sproles as the team's top two runners. In 13 games last season, Mathews rushed for 539 yards and six touchdowns, averaging a career-best 5.1 yards per carry along the way. While the Eagles could certainly add another running back in the upcoming draft, it appears Mathews could be their primary ball-carrier this season, according to Roseman and coach Doug Peterson's recent comments.

    04/27/16DBRon BrooksNeckPROBABLEBrooks (neck) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Neck and shoulder issues cost Brooks time recently, even forcing him into the concussion protocol, though it's not entirely clear whether his placement on IR is related or due to a new injury. Brooks played primarily on special teams this season, recording 12 total tackles (11 solo).

    04/27/16DBNolan CarrollAnklePROBABLECarroll (leg) has agreed to re-sign with the Eagles on a one-year contract, ESPN reports.

    Carroll started the first 11 games of last season before suffering a broken fibula in a Thanksgiving loss to the Lions. He may have to compete for a starting job in 2016, as the Eagles traded away Byron Maxwell but did sign Leodis McKelvin. 2015 second-round selection Eric Rowe also figures to compete for a starting spot on the outside.

    04/27/16DLBennie LoganCalfPROBABLELogan (calf) was placed on IR on Saturday, Philadelphia Inquirer writer Jeff McLane reports.

    Logan is a fine run-stopping interior lineman and his absence leaves Philadelphia a bit more vulnerable at the nose tackle position against the Giants.
