Head coach John Fox said that McPhee had a cleanup procedure on the knee he had repaired in the offseason, but there's no timetable for his return, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. McPhee can be a difference-maker when healthy, but since joining the Bears, he's struggled to stay on the field consistently. Until more details emerge about his timeline, he should be avoided in IDP drafts.
McPhee (knee) will begin training camp on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list, ESPN's Jeff Dickerson reports. For the second time in as many seasons, McPhee won't be available from the get-go of camp. However, this time it actually comes as a surprise considering he was available for most of the spring workouts. Fortunately, he'll be able to rejoin his teammates whenever he gains medical clearance from team doctors.
Charles signed a contract with the Chiefs on Thursday. Charles spent time with the Lions last season and will now look to make the Kansas City roster as a depth tight end and special teams player. He'll likely be competing with Ross Travis and Gavin Escobar for the final tight end slot.
Charles was released by the Lions on Tuesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Charles was let go to make room for Clay Harbor, who was released by the Patriots just one day prior. It's merely a shake-up at the bottom of Detroit's depth chart.
The NFL suspended Saints tight end Orson Charles for the first game of the season, reports the NFL Network. The suspension was for violating the league's Personal Conduct Policy. Charles has nine receptions for 109 yards during his three-year career.
