Julio Jones WR - ATL Jones (knee) could return to full practi...
Jones (knee) could return to full practice as early as Sunday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. "He's fit and knows it well, so I'm not going to rush it," head coach Dan Quinn said Saturday. "But I think it's going to be sooner than later. I don't have necessary have a, 'It has to be by tomorrow [Sunday] or it has to be by Tuesday.' But I'd be surprised if it wasn't tomorrow [Sunday] or Tuesday."
Impacts: Jones tweaked his knee in the first practice of training camp Thursday, but his noted explosiveness was on display Saturday, indicating that he should indeed take on every practice rep in the near future. However, with an off day scheduled Monday, the Falcons could very well exercise caution with the stud wideout.By Rotowire.com
DeAndre Hopkins WR - HOU The Texans placed Hopkins on the Reserve...
The Texans placed Hopkins on the Reserve/Did Not Report list Saturday, Ben Volin of the Boston Globe reports.
Impacts: Displeased with his current contract, Hopkins has opted to leave training camp with the aim of securing amended (and clearly augmented) terms. The Texans themselves have taken a firm stance of no negotiation, as there isn't any impetus for the organization to take such measures. Hopkins will likely return to camp once the prospect of daily $40,000 fines eats into his pocket book, but at the moment, a standoff appears to be in store.By Rotowire.com
Spencer Ware RB - KC Ware missed Saturday's practice due to a...
Ware missed Saturday's practice due to an illness, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Impacts: The development shouldn't hurt Ware's standing in the Chiefs' backfield pecking order, which is more contingent upon Jamaal Charles' continued recovery from a torn ACL. When (or if) Charles return to practice in the coming weeks, he'll be the top RB option, leaving mere scraps for the likes of Ware and Charcandrick West. Although West's pass-catching chops will serve him well in obvious passing downs in 2016, Ware requires carries in bulk in order to make an impact.By Rotowire.com
Adrian Peterson RB - MIN Peterson is dealing with a pulled hamstr...
Peterson is dealing with a pulled hamstring at the start of training camp, Ben Goessling of EPSN.com reports.
Impacts: In a workout in advance of reporting to Mankato, Minn. on Thursday, Peterson sustained the injury, but head coach Mike Zimmer didn't appear concerned about the running back during Saturday's media availability. While his practice participation will likely be capped in the near term, the 31-year-old should be back to his usual self before the Vikings' first preseason game at Cincinnati on Aug. 12.By Rotowire.com
Julio Jones WR - ATL Jones (knee) took part in individual dri...
Jones (knee) took part in individual drills during Saturday's practice.
Impacts: Jones tweaked his knee on the first day of training camp. Head coach Dan Quinn indicated the team had no intention on rushing Jones back to full participation. It makes sense that Falcons would be cautious with their star wideout this early in camp.By Rotowire.com
DeAndre Hopkins WR - HOU Hopkins left training camp on Saturday w...
Hopkins left training camp on Saturday with the intentions of holding out after Houston declined to negotiate his contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Impacts: Hopkins improved his production each of the last two seasons with the Texans, and he finished 2015 with a remarkable 1,521 receiving yards, 111 receptions, and 11 touchdowns. His current contract does not correlate with this type of production as he is set to earn just $1 million this season followed by a jump to $7.9 million in 2017. Hopkins made references to the media over the summer about his displeasure with the current state of his contract, but this is the first time he has acted on it. He is now subject to a $40,000 fine each day he holds out.By Rotowire.com
Adrian Peterson RB - MIN Peterson did not fully participate in tr...
Peterson did not fully participate in training camp Friday due to an undisclosed injury, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "He tweaked himself a little bit in the offseason. He's going to be fine," said head coach Mike Zimmer. "He did the conditioning test today. We're just being careful with him."
Impacts: Peterson was able to run light sprints and participated in a walk-through of a play on offense, so the injury doesn't sound serious. Still, monitor his progress early in training ccamp.By Rotowire.com
Victor Cruz WR - NYG Cruz (calf) was a full participant in Fr...
Cruz (calf) was a full participant in Friday's opening day of training camp, NorthJersey.com reports.
Impacts: Cruz had not practiced in full since last September, so even though Friday marked the opening day of camp, the fact that he was able to do everything is certainly a positive sign. Due to a knee and calf injury, Cruz hasn't played since Week 6 of the 2014 campaign, but was running routes with his teammates and catching passes Friday. Afterward, Cruz stated he's nearing full speed, and although coach Ben McAdoo acknowledged the wideout's progress will be monitored, particularly as more team drills approach, he expects Cruz to practice without limitations going forward.By Rotowire.com
Aldon Smith LB - OAK Smith (suspension) has entered a treatme...
Smith (suspension) has entered a treatment center, ESPN reports.
Impacts: Smith's reason for seeking treatment is unclear, but it comes just days after a Periscope video titled "Fire up session" surfaced of an unidentified man, suspected to be him, talking about a hand-rolled cigarette shown on screen. In wake of that video, which appeared under an account previously used by Smith, the NFL has launched an investigation into whether he violated protocols required of a suspended player seeking reinstatement from a substance abuse violation. While that investigation continues, Smith's move to now enter a treatment facility hardly seems coincidental, and more details regarding his situation should surface soon.By Rotowire.com
Steve Smith WR - BAL Smith (Achilles) suffered a rare double...
Smith (Achilles) suffered a rare double rupture of his right Achilles, and the muscle surrounding his tendon is still significantly atrophied, according to Dan Pompei of the Bleacher Report.
Impacts: The latest report sheds light on Smith's rehab process, which has apparently been even more grueling than expected due to the extreme nature of his torn Achilles. Dr. Robert Anderson, one of the leading orthopedic surgeons for professional athletes, told Smith it was the first time he had ever seen a double Achilles rupture. Already facing an uphill climb, Smith figures to miss most or all of training camp, leaving him on the doubtful side of questionable for the start of the season. He still needs time to build his leg back to strength before he can even think about resuming normal workouts with his teammates. A mid-season return in a part-time role seems like a realistic target for the 37-year-old wideout.By Rotowire.com
Sammy Watkins WR - BUF Watkins (foot) was placed on the active/...
Watkins (foot) was placed on the active/physically unable to perform list for the start of the Bills' training camp, Mike Rodak of ESPN reports.
Impacts: Watkins underwent surgery on his foot in May and isn't quite recovered enough to participate in practice. It appears the team is trying to ease him into camp, allowing the third year wide out to workout and run drills on the side of practice before they allow him back into the flow of things a little later on in camp. He'll again enter the season as unquestionably the Bills' top receiver, looking to improve on his 1,047 yard, nine touchdown performance in 2015.By Rotowire.com
Andre Johnson WR - TEN Johnson will sign with the Titans, ESPN'...
Johnson will sign with the Titans, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Impacts: Johnson visited with the Titans on Tuesday when both sides got a feel for a potential deal to bring the veteran receiver to Tennessee. At 35 years old, Johnson's production could slightly increase after a brutal season with the Colts, while younger options in the team's receiving corps -- Kendall Wright, Rishard Matthews and Dorial Green-Beckham -- continue to develop alongside second-year quarterback Marcus Mariota.By Rotowire.com
Le'Veon Bell RB - PIT Head coach Mike Tomlin said Thursday tha...
Head coach Mike Tomlin said Thursday that the appeal of Bell's (knee) four-game suspension will take place in the second week of August, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Impacts: In conjunction with Tomlin's remarks, Bell wouldn't elaborate on the reason for allegedly missing drug tests, which precipitated his second ban related to the topic. The distraction aside, Bell expected to be fully recovered from last season's MCL and PCL tears at the start of training camp. The Steelers' first practice in the coming days will ultimately relay Bell's current level of health, but DeAngelo Williams is yet again in a prime position to have sustained relevance for the first quarter of the 2016 schedule.By Rotowire.com
Thomas Rawls RB - SEA Rawls' (ankle) status is in question for...
Rawls' (ankle) status is in question for the Seahawks first day of camp on Saturday, Seahawks reporter John Boyle reports.
Impacts: Rawls said in early July that he expected to be fully healthy entering training camp, but, with camp just a few days away, general manager John Schneider said that Rawls isn't likely to practice on Saturday, the first day of Seahawks camp. Despite not currently being at 100 percent, Rawls status for the regular season is not in question and he'll be the team's starting running back after playing well in relief of Marshawn Lynch last season.By Rotowire.com
Ryan Fitzpatrick QB - NYJ Jets head coach Todd Bowles confirmed Th...
Jets head coach Todd Bowles confirmed Thursday that Fitzpatrick will be the starter this season, according to Kimberley Martin of Newsday.
Impacts: The announcement came as no surprise after Fitzpatrick signed a one-year, $12 million contract Wednesday to return to the Jets. He is coming off the best season of his career and will have even more weapons this year with the hope of making the playoffs for the first time.By Rotowire.com
Victor Cruz WR - NYG Cruz (calf) has avoided the PUP list and...
Cruz (calf) has avoided the PUP list and will take the practice field Friday, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.
Impacts: All Giants must pass a conditioning test in order to practice, and Cruz joined the majority of his teammates in accomplishing the feat. Throughout the offseason program, he was contained to individual drills, at best, whether the stage was OTAs or mandatory minicamp, but Thursday's success opens the door for some team drills. Knowing his rich injury history, though, the Giants will likely exercise caution in order to avoid any potholes along the route to (ideally) active status in Week 1.By Rotowire.com
Khiry Robinson RB - NYJ The Jets placed Robinson (lower leg) on...
The Jets placed Robinson (lower leg) on the active/PUP list Thursday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Impacts: Robinson remains embedded in his recovery from last season's broken tibia, but there's an expectation that he'll join the Jets at some point during the preseason. With Matt Forte leading a revamped backfield in 2016, Robinson will likely only see the field when Forte requires a breather, thereby limiting his utility. However, Robinson has averaged 4.1 YPC, while corralling 25 of his 31 career targets, so his all-purpose ability should help him earn playing time at some point in the upcoming campaign.By Rotowire.com
Ameer Abdullah RB - DET Lions head coach Jim Caldwell was evasiv...
Lions head coach Jim Caldwell was evasive when asked if Abdullah (shoulder) is 100 percent healthy, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
Impacts: Caldwell's lack of response doesn't necessarily mean anything, as Abdullah is still expected to be ready for the start of training camp Friday. The second-year pro is a clear favorite to earn the lead-back role, despite missing the Lions' entire offseason program after having surgery in January to repair a torn labrum. Abdullah finished his rookie year on a high note, even successfully playing through the aforementioned injury in his final two games.By Rotowire.com
Robert Griffin QB - CLE Griffin shouldn't have to wait long for...
Griffin shouldn't have to wait long for a decision, as head coach Hue Jackson said Thursday he will definitely name a starting quarterback before the team's first preseason game Aug. 12, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Impacts: While expected to earn the job, Griffin will face competition from both Josh McCown and Cody Kessler. A quick decision would seem to work in Griffin's favor, but it's always possible preseason results could lead to a change before Week 1. In other Browns news, Josh Gordon (quad) has been conditionally reinstated by the NFL, albeit with a four-game suspension to start the season. Gordon is expected to miss the first few weeks of training camp while he recovers from a quad injury he suffered over the summer.By Rotowire.com
Darren McFadden RB - DAL McFadden (elbow) is on track to be ready...
McFadden (elbow) is on track to be ready for Week 1 after receiving good news from a recent bone scan, Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports.
Impacts: McFadden had surgery in mid-June on his fractured elbow, with the recovery timeline estimated at 2-3 months. He should still be considered questionable for the start of the season and will presumably miss the majority of training camp. McFadden figures to start camp on the Non-Football Injury list, as he broke his elbow in a unfortunate off-field accident this summer, trying to prevent his cell phone from falling off a counter.By Rotowire.com
Mike Wallace WR - BAL Wallace failed a conditioning test that...
Wallace failed a conditioning test that he will need to pass before he's allowed to practice, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Impacts: Wallace may get another chance to pass the test Thursday, prior to the Ravens' first full-squad practice of training camp. He did hit five of the six benchmarks on the test, suggesting it shouldn't be long before he's on the field. Wallace signed a two-year, $11.5 million contract in March, despite posting a 39-473-2 receiving line for the Vikings last season. It initially appeared he might need to compete for snaps, but with Steve Smith (Achilles) and Breshad Perriman (knee) uncertain for Week 1, the Ravens may end up relying on Wallace more than originally expected.By Rotowire.com
Ryan Fitzpatrick QB - NYJ Fitzpatrick has signed a one-year, $12 m...
Fitzpatrick has signed a one-year, $12 million contract with the Jets, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Impacts: Fitzpatrick and the Jets have been in contract talks for months, with the quarterback stating a willingness to retire before he accepted an offer below his market value. Now that the deal is done, Fitzpatrick will surely be the Jets' starting quarterback for the second year in a row. In his lone season with the Jets in 2015, Fitzpatrick threw for 3,905 yards, 31 touchdowns and 15 interceptions while completing 59.6 percent of his passes in what was arguably the best season of his career.By Rotowire.com
Ryan Mathews RB - PHI Mathews, who landed on the Eagles' Activ...
Mathews, who landed on the Eagles' Active/Non-football Injury list after hurting his ankle while training last week, was seen walking into the team's facility Wednesday without a noticeable limp, CSN Philadelphia reports.
Impacts: Though the Eagles have not presented a timetable for Mathews' return, this nugget hints at an injury that isn't too severe. Either way, until Mathews returns to the field, the likes of Darren Sproles, Wendell Smallwood and Kenjon Barner figure to see added running back reps during the Eagles' training camp practices.By Rotowire.com
Ryan Mathews RB - PHI The Eagles have placed Mathews (ankle)...
The Eagles have placed Mathews (ankle) on their Active/Non-Football Injury List.
Impacts: The report notes that the running back suffered an ankle injury while training last week, without providing a timetable for Mathews' return to action. On a more positive note, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer noted Wednesday that Mathews "was seen walking into (the Eagles') facility and his injury isn't considered serious." We'll let you know if that assessment changes.By Rotowire.com
Tom Brady QB - NE With Brady in line to serve a four-game...
With Brady in line to serve a four-game suspension to start the season, coach Bill Belichick acknowledged Wednesday that now that the team finally has "some definition with Tom's situation...our priority now is to get Jimmy (Garoppolo) ready for the start of the season," ESPN.com reports.
Impacts: As training camp progresses, both Brady and Garoppolo, as well as rookie Jacoby Brissett to a lesser degree, will see their share of practice reps. Per Belichick, "Tom will return as the starting quarterback when he comes back, but in the meantime, we have to prioritize the first part of our schedule, and that will be to get Jimmy ready to go." Garoppolo is thus slated to start the first four games of the coming season for the Patriots, while Brady will be eligible to return to action in Week 5 against the Browns.By Rotowire.com
Eddie Lacy RB - GB Lacy reported to training camp Tuesday i...
Lacy reported to training camp Tuesday in visibly better shape than he was in last season, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impacts: Weight was an issue for Lacy last last season, so he did some extra work in the offseason -- particularly with P90X trainer Tony Horton -- in an effort to get in and stay in better shape in 2016. Lacy refused to disclose exactly how much he weighs when asked Tuesday, but the report says that he is slimmer than he was during OTAs, when he was already smaller then than he was at the end of last season. The report also notes that he is not back to his weight coming out of college, but the fact that he's several years older may be an impediment to ever reverting back to that number. Either way, it's good news for fantasy owners and Packers fans that Lacy has made it a point to improve his conditioning. If he is able to keep the pounds off -- he has extra motivation in a contract year -- that should lead to improved stamina and stability, and help him improve upon his sub-par 2015 campaign. If not, he could slip into a time-share with James Starks, similar to what occurred a year ago.By Rotowire.com
DeVante Parker WR - MIA Coach Adam Gase noted Tuesday that Parke...
Coach Adam Gase noted Tuesday that Parker, who was slowed by a foot injury last season, "shouldn't have any limitations and we should be able [to be] full-go right out the gate" in training camp, the Miami Herald reports.
Impacts: Parker, the No. 14 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, fell short of expectations as a rookie, logging just 26 catches in 14 games. He's now past his foot woes, however, and poised to emerge as a key cog in the Dolphins' passing game this season as a dynamic wideout complement to the PPR-friendly Jarvis Landry.By Rotowire.com
Antonio Brown WR - PIT Brown, who is said to be hopeful that hi...
Brown, who is said to be hopeful that his contract situation will be addressed before the start of the season, will report to training camp Thursday, ESPN.com reports.
Impacts: Brown, who is coming off a fantasy-friendly 136-catch season in 2015, is scheduled to earn $6.25 million in base salary this coming season and $8.71 million in 2017. That's something of a bargain, compared to the salaries other top NFL wideouts haul in, but at this stage, there's nothing to suggest that he plans to engineer any sort of holdout. That's certainly good news for the Steelers, with fellow key wideout Martavis Bryant set to serve a one-year suspension and star running back Le'Veon Bell potentially facing a four-game suspension to start the coming campaign. In any case, a healthy Brown remains QB Ben Roethlisberger's top target and sits atop most fantasy wideout cheat sheets.By Rotowire.com
Jamaal Charles RB - KC Charles (knee) has been placed on the th...
Charles (knee) has been placed on the the Chiefs' preseason PUP list, BJ Kissel of the team's official site reports.
Impacts: Charles is eligible to be activated from the list and return to practice at any time during training camp. Kissel also relays that coach Andy Reid noted that Charles' placement on the list is not indicative of a setback, with the running back said to be "on track." We'll continue to monitor Charles' status closely, but previous reports have suggested that his recovery is going well. For his part, ESPN's Adam Teicher suggested Tuesday that once the team's top RB is back, the "Chiefs won't limit Charles if he's healthy and he's the same player he was before the knee injury."By Rotowire.com
Aaron Rodgers QB - GB Head coach Mike McCarthy didn't say Rodg...
Head coach Mike McCarthy didn't say Rodgers will be specifically limited in the preseason, but noted that the Packers will definitely be "conscious of how much Aaron's throwing the ball.", Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.
Impacts: McCarthy is simply being careful with his franchise quarterback to start the season. Rodgers is under no restrictions following his offseason arthroscopic knee surgery, and is good to go for the 2016 season.By Rotowire.com
Colin Kaepernick QB - SF Kaepernick received clearance from the C...
Kaepernick received clearance from the Colorado doctor that performed his shoulder surgery in November, but the 49ers' medical staff must still clear him for training camp, which kicks off Sunday, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports.
Impacts: In a two-month span, Kaepernick underwent procedures on a torn labrum in his left shoulder and a ligament tear in his right thumb, as well as a scope on his left knee, but the first surgery was the one that limited his reps in the offseason program. As a result, Blaine Gabbert currently has a leg up in the competition for starting QB, which will begin in earnest this weekend. Considering Kaepernick's noted mobility would be an asset in new head coach Chip Kelly's system, his ability to take the practice field immediately will aid in his quest for the top gig.By Rotowire.com
Josh Gordon WR - CLE Gordon (suspension) suffered a quad inju...
Gordon (suspension) suffered a quad injury this summer and won't be able to practice for at least a couple weeks, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Impacts: Gordon was conditionally reinstated by the NFL on Monday, allowing him to participate in training camp as he prepares to start the season with a four-game suspension. The Browns then announced that they will give the star wideout another shot, setting him up for a long-awaited return in Week 5, assuming he avoids any off-field issues in the meantime. However, Monday's plethora of good news was hindered a bit Tuesday, as the 25-year-old wideout has apparently been recovering from a quad injury that was previously unreported. While details weren't provided, initial reports suggest the quad is a major concern, with Gordon expected to miss "at least a couple weeks" at the start of training camp. Even if the injury doesn't threaten his Week 5 availability, it's worrisome that Gordon may miss a good chunk of camp (and possibly the preseason), as he already faces the tough task of returning from a 22-month layoff between NFL games, rejoining a Browns team that looks nothing at all like the version he last played for. Gordon will start camp on the Non-Football Injury list.By Rotowire.com
Jordy Nelson WR - GB Nelson's knee issue is a result of tendi...
Nelson's knee issue is a result of tendinitis from overcompensating during rehab, Ed Werder of ESPN.com reports.
Impacts: The injury is not viewed as serious and shouldn't affect Nelson's status for the beginning of the season. Despite early reports, the tendinitis is located in the opposite knee of the torn ACL that Nelson suffered almost a year ago. Look for more updates to come as training camp gets underway.By Rotowire.com
Anquan Boldin WR - DET The Lions and Boldin agreed to a contrac...
The Lions and Boldin agreed to a contract Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Impacts: At this stage of his career, the 35-year-old Boldin won't completely make up for the retirement of Calvin Johnson. In reality, the combined efforts of Boldin and fellow offseason pickup Marvin Jones will help plug the dam, with the 13-year veteran the likely candidate to become a quick favorite of Matthew Stafford. Despite posting the second-lowest YPC (11.4) of his career last season, Boldin was working with uninspiring signal callers -- Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick -- so the upgrade to Stafford should boost Boldin's prospects.By Rotowire.com
Jordy Nelson WR - GB Nelson relayed Tuesday that he recently...
Nelson relayed Tuesday that he recently experienced a "hiccup" with his left knee, which isn't the side that endured a torn ACL last preseason, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Impacts: When the Packers made the call to place Nelson on the active/PUP list Monday, it was widely assumed that the medical staff was exercising caution with the last stages of the wideout's recovery. However, he told Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the ACL in his right knee is "totally fine." There's no specific timetable for Nelson to make an appearance at practice, but in his mind, his status for Week 1 isn't "in jeopardy."By Rotowire.com
Sammy Watkins WR - BUF Watkins says his surgically repaired foo...
Watkins says his surgically repaired foot is ready for anything, BuffaloBills.com reports. 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."
Impacts: 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 was 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.By Rotowire.com
Josh Gordon WR - CLE Head of football operations Sashi Brown...
Head of football operations Sashi Brown relayed Monday that the Browns plan to give Gordon a chance to redeem himself with the franchise, now that the NFL has reinstated the wideout on a conditional basis, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Impacts: In a statement posted on the team's official site, Brown noted, "with the league's decision to afford Josh the opportunity to resume his career, he will be with us for the start of training camp. At that time, we will discuss directly with Josh the direction of our team, our expectations of our players and a plan to support him on and off the field." While the talented 25-year-old wideout has plenty to prove after being away from game action for so long, if he is able to meet the off-field expectations of the Browns, it looks like he'll have an opportunity, as soon as Week 5 of the 2016 season, to contribute to the team's offense in some capacity. How much of an impact he'd be ready to make -- and how quick that might happen after his four-game suspension ends -- remains to be seen, but Gordon's fantasy upside is obviously intriguing, in the event that things continue to move forward for him in a positive direction.By Rotowire.com
Danny Amendola WR - NE Amendola, who underwent an offseason pro...
Amendola, who underwent an offseason procedure on his left knee, as well as his ankle, is slated to open training camp on the Patriots' active/PUP list, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.
Impacts: Julian Edelman (foot) will also be on the list, though both wideouts can be activated and return to practice at any time during camp. It's a situation to track, though at this stage, the duo appears on track to be available by Week 1, barring any setbacks.By Rotowire.com
Julian Edelman WR - NE Edelman, who underwent surgery on his le...
Edelman, who underwent surgery on his left foot this offseason, is slated to open training camp on the Patriots' active/PUP list, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.
Impacts: The same applies to fellow wideout Danny Amendola (knee), with both players eligible to be activated from the list and return to practice at any time during training camp. Though Edelman's status is clearly worth tracking, there's been positive indicators suggesting that he is on track in his injury recovery, including his recent presence at Fenway Park, where the wideout reportedly moved around well while taking batting practice and fielding groundballs.By Rotowire.com
Jordy Nelson WR - GB The Packers placed Nelson (knee) on the...
The Packers placed Nelson (knee) on the PUP list Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Impacts: After players reported to Green Bay and those injured underwent initial examinations, Nelson won't be on the field Tuesday for the first practice of training camp. The decision doesn't come as a surprise, as he only recently reached 11 months since sustaining a torn ACL last preseason. Once the Packers deem his right knee ready for increased activity, his activation from the PUP list likely won't be far behind.By Rotowire.com
