    04/27/16LBVontaze BurfictSuspensionSUSPENDBurfict's three-game suspension was upheld by appeals officer Derrick Brooks, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.

    As expected, Burfict will miss the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated on-field incidents, culminating with his cheap shot on Antonio Brown in a playoff loss to the Steelers. He's an excellent player, but his value to the Bengals has been dampened by a combination of injuries and careless penalties. He has 14 unnecessary roughness flags and 401 tackles in 47 games through four seasons.

    04/27/16DBDarqueze DennardShoulderQUESTIONABLEDennard expects to be available for 2016 training camp after undergoing shoulder surgery sometime in the next couple of weeks, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

    Dennard hasn't made much of an impact during his two years in the league but appeared to be turning a corner shortly before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury last week. While he's expected to make a full recovery, it seems likely that he'll be in store for another ancillary role on the Bengals' defense next season.

    04/27/16DLBrandon ThompsonKneeQUESTIONABLEAll the Bengals who were probable or questionable on the injury report are active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. The list includes linebacker Jayson DiManche (shoulder), defensive end Carlos Dunlap (illness), cornerback Terence Newman (back), defensive tackle Domata Peko (toe), guard Mike Pollak (knee), defensive tackle Brandon Thompson (knee) and offensive tackle Andre Smith (knee).

    04/27/16QBDrew BreesFootPROBABLEThe agent for Brees (foot) and Saints' general manager Mickey Loomis have talked about a contract extension, which head coach Sean Payton thinks "will get done very easily," reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

    Brees' contract is not set to expire until 2017, but an extension would permit the team to lower his huge salary cap number and presumably allow the Saints to be more active in free agency. Further reading between the lines, the fact that there has been no recent mention of the torn plantar fascia he suffered at the end of last season is likely a good sign for Brees' offseason prognosis. As such, there is little reason to believe that Brees will not be healthy and ready for action when official offseason training activities begin later this spring.

    (Updated 02/26/2016)
    04/27/16RBMark IngramShoulderPROBABLEThe Saints restructured Ingram's (shoulder) contract Wednesday, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

    Ingram parlayed a career-high 964 rushing yards and nine touchdowns in 2014 into a four-year contract last March. On pace to break those marks this past season, he played through a shoulder concern in Weeks 12 and 13, before the Saints discovered that a torn left rotator cuff was to blame. Surgery was quickly ordered up, ending his season with 769 yards and six touchdowns on the ground. He further expanded his game, though, with career bests in receptions (50) and receiving yards (405). Following the adjustment to his contract, a portion has been tabbed as a signing bonus, with the remaining to be spread across the years left on the deal.

    04/27/16DLCameron JordanBackPROBABLEJordan recently underwent a minor arthroscopic procedure on his lower back, ESPN.com reports.

    Jordan carried a lingering back injury through most of last season, causing him to miss practice time over the course of the campaign. Still, the Pro Bowler managed to post 10 sacks in 2015, and is averaging exactly that many over his last three seasons. Despite his recent operation, Jordan is expected to make a full recovery in time for training camp.

    04/27/16DBKeenan LewisKneePROBABLELewis underwent hip surgery Monday, The New Orleans Advocate reports.

    Lewis was placed on season-ending injured reserve recently due to hip and knee complications, and had surgery on his hip labrum Monday to correct that ailment. The veteran will now aim to get healthy ahead of next season, while the Saints' porous defense tries to at least finish this season respectfully.

    (Updated 12/07/2015)
    04/27/16RBMarcus MurphyAnklePROBABLEMurphy (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

    The Saints' backfield has taken hits in quick session over the last week, with Murphy joining Mark Ingram (shoulder) and Khiry Robinson (leg) on injured reserve. While Murphy had just one carry in his rookie season, he served as the Saints' primary returner, racking up 25.0 yards per kickoff return and 9.3 yards per punt return. In his stead, C.J. Spiller will likely take on a portion of those duties.

    (Updated 12/16/2015)
    04/27/16RBC.J. SpillerLegPROBABLESpiller (leg) gained 112 yards on 36 carries and 239 yards on 34 receptions in 13 games in his first season with the Saints.

    2015 was an unmitigated disaster for Spiller, as he failed to meet fantasy owners' high expectations after signing with the Saints this offseason. Rather than serving as the Saints' backfield pass-catching option, a la Reggie Bush or Darren Sproles, Spiller missed nearly all of training camp following arthroscopic knee surgery and struggled to earn playing time after he returned to health. Spiller is still under contract for another three years, but with Mark Ingram emerging as a receiver and Tim Hightower exploding back onto the NFL scene, not to mention the possible return of Khiry Robinson, Spiller will likely enter a crowded Saints' backfield in 2016.

    (Updated 01/11/2016)
    04/27/16DBP.J. WilliamsHamstringPROBABLEThe Saints placed cornerback P.J. Williams on injured reserve, reports NFL.com. Williams will miss the rest of the season after tearing his hamstring. He was a third-round pick in 2015.
