We scour the news around the NFL to bring you what matters most to you and your dynasty team: the most current news on players, both superstars and the relative unknowns, and analysis to decipher the respective situations. These are many of the major stories and not meant to be an exhaustive look at all the recent happenings around the league.
A couple of weeks ago, we wrote about the lack of news on Andrew Luck’s recovery from shoulder surgery. Last week, Colts.com's Kevin Bowen wrote that there still have been no updates on Luck's status. Per the report, it is still unknown whether the star has resumed throwing passes. Bowen states that the team seems unfazed by the lack of progress. With training camp opening soon, we should have an update in the coming weeks. In quarterback-premium leagues, it might be a savvy move to stash Scott Tolzien just in case Luck is slow to return.
Teddy Bridgewater has been impressive in his return from a nasty left-knee injury. While the jury is still out on whether he will be available Week 1, the young quarterback is making progress. Last week, the Minnesota passer posted pictures on Instagram of him working out without a brace. While the pictures were not a huge deal, Bridgewater working out without the brace is a big feat. He was filmed working out in OTAs with a brace so the shedding of it shows progress. Even though he is expected to begin training camp on the PUP list, the odds are increasing that Bridgewater will return at some point in the season, possibly early. With Sam Bradford in the last year of his contract, the Vikings will want to see what they have in Bridgewater before making any decisions on Bradford.
