Vikings' Teddy Bridgewater: Likely to begin preseason on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Bridgewater (knee) is expected to begin training camp on the PUP list, head coach Mike Zimmer told ESPN.

While Bridgewater threw passes in individual drills and worked on his dropback against a resistance band during organized team activities and minicamp, he doesn't appear ready to participate in a full practice. It would seem likely that Bridgewater would begin the regular season on the PUP list and it's uncertain if he'll be able to be on the active roster at all in 2017 after suffering a torn ACL and dislocated left knee during a late-August, 2016 practice.

Vikings' Rodney Adams: Favorite to win kick return job
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Adams is the leading candidate to win the kick return job in place of Cordarrelle Patterson, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Adams, a fifth-round 2017 draft pick, will try to make the 53-man roster as a receiver, so winning the kick return job could help his standing. Still, it's a wide-open competition with Jerick McKinnon and seventh-rounder Stacy Coley also in the mix.

Eagles' Jordan Matthews: Could be limited in training camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Matthews (knee) could be limited during the outset of training camp, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Matthews is battling a case of tendinitis in his left knee, an issue that forced him from participating in parts of the Eagles' offseason program. While it wouldn't be ideal for him to miss out on valuable practice time during training camp, Matthews' restrictions could allow newly-acquired wideouts Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, as well as embattled 2014 first-rounder Nelson Agholor, to receive more reps than they would've otherwise.

Dwayne Gratz: Released by Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Gratz was released by the Eagles on Sunday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

This move is a little surprising, as Gratz was one the Eagles' only reserve cornerbacks with any playing experience whatsoever. The 2013 third-rounder shouldn't have too much of problem finding another job sometime soon.

Packers' Jeff Janis: Unlikely to break out in fourth season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Janis is unlikely to be anything more than a special-teams player in 2017, ESPN's Mike Clay reports.

The highlight of Janis' three-year career to date is likely his performance in the 2015 playoff game against the Cardinals in which the 2014 seventh-rounder caught a Hail Mary touchdown to force OT. Other than that, Janis has only flashed on occasion as a situational downfield threat. Thankfully, he's one of the best special-teams players the Packers employ, which should help his case in securing a roster spot ahead of the 2017 campaign.

Titans' Sebastian Tretola: Treated for gunshot wound
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Tretola was treated for a gunshot wound Sunday but has since been released from the hospital, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

This is the second time Tretola's name has come up in the news for the wrong reasons this offseason, as the offensive lineman was accused of having a role in teammate Tajae Sharpe's April bar skirmish. Thankfully, the gunshot wound is reportedly "minor" in nature and Tretola shouldn't be out of service for long.

Eagles' Sidney Jones: Moved to NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Jones (Achilles) was placed on the non-football injury list Sunday, Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site reports.

This move was likely inevitable as Jones tore his Achilles tendon in March. As it stands, the Eagles will have Jalen Mills, Patrick Robinson and Rasul Douglas to work with as their top corners to open training camp.

Eagles' Beau Allen: Lands on NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Allen (pectoral) was placed on the non-football injury list Sunday, Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site reports.

Allen was given a 4-to-6 month timeline for a return after undergoing successful surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle in April, so his placement on this list comes as no surprise. It remains doubtful he'll be ready to play in time for the regular-season opener Sept. 10 in Washington.

Eagles' Ryan Mathews: Excused from training camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Mathews (neck) has been excused from training camp, Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site reports.

This all but confirms Mathews will be sent packing once he passes a physical to prove he's recovered from the neck injury that curtailed his 2016 season, since cutting the 2010 first-rounder would save Philadelphia roughly $4 million in cap space. However, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reported that Mathews likely won't be re-evaluated until "sometime in August", so it still may be a while until that comes to fruition. For now, the Eagles will open training camp with LeGarrette Blount, Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood leading the charge at running back.

Eagles' Jordan Hicks: Not expected to miss any time
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
Hicks (hand) isn't expected to miss any part of training camp, Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site reports.

Hicks needed a minor operation to correct a hand injury he suffered on his honeymoon in late June. Although he won't miss any time, Hicks could be limited during training camp.
