by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace missed a second straight day of practice with a sore hamstring and won't play in Saturday's scrimmage at Sun Life Stadium, reports the Miami Herald. His status for the Aug. 8 preseason opener against the Falcons is uncertain.

The paper said the injury is not serious, but "obviously slows the growth of Wallace's and quarterback Ryan Tannehill's ability to team up on dynamic long passes."

Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins "may not be the savior they hope he will be in Buffalo, but this team is going to feed him the ball and they are gambling he can make a quarterback out of EJ Manuel," reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. "I’m not sure that will be the case, but a rookie of the year performance from Watkins wouldn’t shock me either."

La Canfora listed Watkins first among his 10 breakout players.

Kevin Ogletree favored to be Lions' No. 3 receiver
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
Lions receiver Kevin Ogletree has opened training camp by running with Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate on the first team, reports MLive.com. Ogletree took the lead for the No. 3 job with stellar play during OTAs and "several nice catches during minicamp," the report said.

"This is the biggest opportunity of my career," Ogletree said, "and it would be selfish of me not to indulge in it and bury myself in the playbook. Just overcommit myself to getting better every day.

"I've always felt confident about my game. But like I said, this is the biggest opportunity of my career. And there was no way I was going to mess this thing up."

Ogletree caught 13 passes for 199 yards and a touchdown after signing with Detroit for the final 12 games last year. He went through a grueling training program to get ready for 2014, the website said. While he lacks Johnson's size or Tate's speed, Ogletree "runs nice, consistent patterns and has had a knack for getting separation from defensive backs."

Ogletree also has had few, if any drops in camp, the website said.

Rams' Brian Quick turning some heads
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
Former NFL general manager-turned-SiriusXM NFL Radio host Phil Savage tweeted Wednesday that Rams receiver Brian Quick has displayed production matching his size and speed. The team is encouraged, according to Savage. 

More praise for Quick came from ESPN, who reported earlier this week that he was off to a good start, reeling in a pair of deep passes on Tuesday. And even Jeff Fisher got in a compliment. 

"Brian, early on in his career, if he wasn't sure, he wasn't quite full speed," Fisher told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "Brian is learning to just go. Good things happen when you run hard."

Quick, 6-foot-3 and 218 pounds, has long been a tempting breakout candidate thanks to his fleet feet, but in his first two seasons he's tallied just 29 grabs for 458 yards and four touchdowns.
