    07/26/16RBArian FosterAchillesQUESTIONABLEFoster (Achilles) is expected to be a big part of the passing game out of the backfield, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

    How much Foster will contribute to Miami this season will depend on how well is Achilles has healed and whether or not he has lost a step. He will need to pass a conditioning test Friday before participating in camp. Head coach Adam Gase is a big believer in Foster's ability to catch the ball out of the backfield even comparing his route tree to that of a wide receiver. Jay Ajayi still goes into training camp atop the RB depth chart but if Foster proves to be completely recovered from his injury than it would seem that he could go into Week 1 as the starter.

    04/27/16DLDion JordanSuspensionSUSPENDJordan is not a lock to make the Dolphins squad out of training camp even if he is reinstated from his suspension, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    Jordan is due a roster bonus of almost $1.7 million if he is still with Miami on the fifth day of training camp. That price may be to much to pay for a Miami club who really don't know how Jordan will play coming off a suspension. He may have to show an awful lot in quick order to assure the Miami brass that he is worth that roster bonus.

    07/18/16RBKarlos WilliamsSuspensionSUSPENDWilliam has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's substance abuse policy, NFL.com reports.

    Williams' suspension comes just one day after fellow Bills running back Jonathan Williams was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated. Additionally, Williams' poor conditioning was called out by coach Rex Ryan last month, so his suspension only compounds an unimpressive first NFL offseason. After posting 5.6 yards per carry and scoring nine touchdowns in 11 games as a rookie, Williams now won't be eligible to play until Week 5 against the Rams. Until then, Mike Gillislee and the aforementioned Williams will have the opportunity to earn valuable touches behind starter LeSean McCoy (ankle).

    07/11/16WRMarcus EasleyKneeQUESTIONABLEEasley, who shattered his knee cap in three places during Week 16, is mostly recovered and is hoping to be on the field for at least part of training camp, BuffaloBills.com reports.
    07/11/16DLShaq LawsonShoulderQUESTIONABLELawson signed his rookie contract Monday, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    The real question is how much time Lawson's recent shoulder surgery ends up costing him during the first year of his contract. Right now, the team seems to still love the value they got in the middle of the first round, and Lawson's attitude in offseason practices seems to be impressing anyone. However, it may be awhile before we see him in action again. Manny Lawson will serve as the placeholder for Shaq Lawson's presumed starting OLB spot while the rookie continues to heal.

    07/11/16WRSammy WatkinsFootQUESTIONABLEWatkins says his surgically repaired foot is ready for anything. He's doing full workouts with little in the way of limitations, but still says he needs to gain confidence with his speed cuts, especially when cutting left and putting torque on the repaired left foot. "That's something I'm not comfortable with," said the third-year receiver. "I can do any other route except that route. I'm just kind of tense about it. My foot is tense about it."

    Even though the Bills are one of the most run-oriented teams in the league, the passing game goes through Watkins and there was a stretch last season where he within earshot of the Antonio Browns of the league. He hasn't proved he can stay healthy enough or avoid periods of inconsistency where he's a cream-of-the-crop fantasy guy, but he's not that far off either. It'll be worth watching to see how quickly the staff incorporates him into training camp practices, but so far, so good in the recovery and we wouldn't knock him down too much from where he stood pre-injury.

    04/27/16DLJerry HughesUpper bodyQUESTIONABLEHughes finished the 2015 season with 52 tackles, five sacks, four passes defensed, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. He played in all 16 games for the fourth straight season, while seeing action on 92.5 percent of the defensive snaps.

    Hughes picked up 67 points in standard IDP scoring after putting up 90 the previous season, and that's mostly due to the drop in sacks. If your league counts passes defensed, he closed that gap a bit. In truth, almost every member of the Bills' defensive line struggled with Rex Ryan's new system, and there's little reason Hughes can't get back to double-digit sacks in 2016 as his familiarity in a complex scheme grows. Hughes also took some dumb penalties in 2015, and it won't sit well with the coaching staff if he doesn't clean that up permanently.
