Injuries to Tony Romo and Kenneth Dixon have changed the Fantasy landscape, while the returns of Jordy Nelson, Arian Foster, Jimmy Graham and more have Fantasy owners dealing with big questions. Chris Towers runs down the latest.
Love appears to have cleared concussion protocol, ESPN's David Newton reports.
Love was seen walking to practice Monday with his helmet in hand, indicating he's ready to return from last week's hit to the head. Having him available gives the Panthers another big body along their defensive front, where Kawann Short, Star Lotulelei and Vernon Butler lead the interior line options.
Johnson began training camp on the active/non-football injury list with an Achilles injury.
Johnson suffered the injury last season when he was with the Patriots but did not undergo surgery until this offseason. The cornerback can be removed from the list at any point and rejoin the team on the field. There will be plenty of reps for young Panthers' defensive backs to begin camp with Johnson and fellow corner Bene Benwikere (ankle) both on the sidelines.
Neal (torso) injured his knee in Thursday's preseason loss to the Dolphins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Neal is dealing with his second injury of the preseason. First it was a torso strain that kept him out of the team's first preseason game and now his knee injury. Despite being dinged up a bit, the rookie did tell teammates that he didn't think the injury was serious and he expects to play in the teams Week 1 matchup with Tampa Bay.
Toilolo (hand) caught one pass for 13 yards on two targets in Thursday's preseason game against the Browns.
Jacob Tamme got the start, but Toilolo and Austin Hooper also got some snaps with the first-team offense. Each player managed just one catch, and while Tamme appears to have an early advantage, there's still time for Toilolo or Hooper to make a move before Week 1. Regardless, the Atlanta tight ends probably won't be a big part of the team's passing game this season.
Ward (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Dolphins.
Ward hasn't played so far this preseason and it's unclear if he'll be able to return for the team's final go before the regular season, next Thursday against the Jaguars. He's expected to be the team's No. 3 option at running back, behind Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, but his lengthy absence will again open the door Gus Johnson to take a shot at that role with added game snaps on Thursday.
Collins has been suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Collins is still eligible to partake in all offseason and preseason activities, but will have to miss the first quarter of the regular season. A second round selection last year, Collins was hoping to carve out a larger role in the Falcons' secondary this term, and although he very well may still, his absence will open opportunities for his teammates to begin the campaign.
