  Rams | Tre Mason works with first-team    Tue Jul 29, 10:21 PM

St. Louis Ram RB Tre Mason saw received some snaps with the first-team Tuesday, July 29, with RB Zac Stacy receiving a majority of the work with the first-team.

Footballguys view: It will be interesting to see the split between Stacy and Mason here. Stacy will be the lead back, but Mason is a quality rookie back with the ability to churn out tough yards and break off big runs. Mason has an ADP of RB48 (11.09), while Stacy has an ADP of RB17 (3.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Rams | Isaiah Pead misses practice    Tue Jul 29, 10:16 PM

St. Louis Rams RB Isaiah Pead (undisclosed) missed practice Tuesday, July 29, and appeared to be wearing a cast on his right hand, according to's Nick Wagoner.

Footballguys view: Pead has been a disappointment as a pro. The former second-round pick is just trying to hang around on the roster as a fourth-string back. He's now competing with Chase Reynolds to be the final back on the depth chart.

  Jets | Greg Salas, Daryl Richardson making case for roster spots    Tue Jul 29, 09:44 PM

New York Jets WR Greg Salas had two difficult catches during practice Tuesday, July 29, and RB Daryl Richardson made several big runs. Dom Cosentino of The Star-Ledger believes both players have improved their chances of making the roster during training camp.

Footballguys view: Salas has always been a good route-runner, but he had trouble catching the ball earlier in his career with the Rams. Richardson was a starter for the Rams at the beginning of last season, but now he's trying to catch on as a reserve runner behind Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory with the Jets.

  Titans | Bishop Sankey earning praise    Tue Jul 29, 09:24 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey earned praise from head coach Ken Whisenhunt for his quick cuts and willingness to lower his shoulder during practice Tuesday, July 29. Whisenhunt also said that Sankey was drafted in part because he is a good fit for the offensive system.

Footballguys view: Sankey is going to play the Ryan Mathews role in Whisenhunt's offense. The rookie is looking at a large role for the Titans this year. His current ADP is RB20 (4.09) in 12-team PPR leagues. Sankey lacks any elite trait to his game, but he can do it all. With a poor offensive line, Sankey had to do a lot of creating on his own during his college career at Washington. He's a jump-cutter who loves to make defenders miss. He has soft hands as a receiver and puts forth good effort in pass-protection.

  Cowboys | Rolando McClain dealing with stomach virus    Tue Jul 29, 08:54 PM

Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain (illness) left practice early Tuesday, July 29, because of a stomach virus.

Footballguys view: Okay, well at least it's not an injury. The Cowboys defense has taken a few kicks to the midsection this offseason. Losing linebacker Sean Lee (knee) being the biggest blow.

  Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson practices on limited basis    Tue Jul 29, 08:43 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson (foot) ran routes in full pads Monday, July 29, and worked on the side with athletic trainers.

Footballguys view: The Vikings are being careful with their potential superstar wide receiver here. Patterson could have a breakout season in 2014 if the quarterback situation comes together. We like rookie Teddy Bridgewater to start more than Matt Cassel or Christian Ponder.

  Packers | Bryan Bulaga sharp in pass protection    Tue Jul 29, 08:31 PM

  Lions | Calvin Johnson adjusting approach in practice    Tue Jul 29, 08:19 PM

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson is taking part in fewer reps in training camp this year than in years past and said he is trying to be smarter about his approach to practice with the goal of staying healthy the entire season. 'I'm older now,' Johnson said. 'I'm not diving for the balls anymore (in practice). Coach Caldwell has a big emphasis about us staying off the ground. I'm not playing every play in practice but they're working me in. I'm out here trying to get my extra running in after (practice) so I can keep my wind up.'

Footballguys view: Johnson is the best in the game today. Anything he wants to do should be okay with the Lions. He's WR1 (1.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Lions | Theo Riddick praised, confident     Tue Jul 29, 07:49 PM

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick possesses intensity, hustle, desire and toughness, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Riddick added that his versatility enables him to pressure defenses from the backfield.

Footballguys view: More of the consistent drumbeat about Riddick here. He's been constantly impressing this entire offseason. This gives us confidence that Riddick is more than a "training camp star." He'll serve as the third back for the Lions behind Reggie Bush and Joique Bell.

  Lions | Ndamukong Suh to explore free agency?    Tue Jul 29, 07:31 PM

Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh has been given permission to explore free agency in order to gauge his market value. The Lions want Suh to make an informed decision and sign a deal he's happy with.

Footballguys view: This is....interesting to say the least. Suh hitting the open market means he's likely going to leave Detroit next year. The team doesn't want to franchise tag Suh next offseason because he would cost $26.7 million. The Lions are risking a lot in potentially (likely) giving up one of the league's most dominant interior lineman. Perhaps Suh's antics have grown tired in Detroit.

Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain (undisclosed) went to the locker room with doctors Tuesday, July 29. Stay tuned for an update.

Footballguys view: Just what the Cowboys need--more injuries at the linebacker position. They were desperate after Sean Lee (knee) was lost for the season, and that's why they signed McClain in the first place.

  Cowboys | Sean Lee optimistic about health    Tue Jul 29, 06:44 PM

Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee (knee) thinks he will return from his torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee completely healthy. Lee is with the team in California for his rehab, and it's possible he could travel with the team for road games in the regular season. 'He's doing his rehab to get himself ready, but he's completely integrated with our football team,' head coach Jason Garrett said. 'I can't think of a better guy to be in that role. He just embraces every chance he gets to be that much better.'

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch fined    Tue Jul 29, 06:44 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has been fined $275,000 for missing his sixth straight day of training camp, per collective bargaining agreement rules.

Footballguys view: Lynch is getting some real bad advice here. He's got little leverage in the situation, and it seems like the Seahawks are not going to budge. We can't imagine Lynch getting the raise he wants, but there's no end to this holdout in sight.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer not the answer?    Tue Jul 29, 06:37 PM

Cleveland Browns QBs Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer may not be the team's answer at quarterback, according to NFL Media's Charley Casserly. Casserly said the Browns' answer at the position is more likely to be found in one of its two first-round picks next season.

Footballguys view: Browns fans, take solace in what your former coach (and current Patriots head coach) Bill Belichick had to say about Casserly back in 2010. "Who's been wrong more than Charley Casserly since he left the Redskins? His percentage is like a meteorologist," Belichick said.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. expected to miss a week    Tue Jul 29, 06:35 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is expected to be out at least another week, although tests on his hamstring came back negative Tuesday, July 29.

Footballguys view: The Giants are hoping Beckham can be a playmaker at receiver in their new West Coast offense under OC Ben McAdoo. He'll compete for a starting spot against WR Jerrel Jernigan.

  Jets | Chris Johnson feeling good    Tue Jul 29, 06:33 PM

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) said he feels good now that he's been able to move laterally in practice.

Footballguys view: The Jets are going to give Johnson some time off during camp. There's no need to have the veteran out there every day grinding. This move (in addition to using Chris Ivory as a change of pace) could help keep Johnson fresh in 2014.

  Giants | David Wilson to go for tests    Tue Jul 29, 06:27 PM

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) will undergo tests after suffering a 'burner' in practice Tuesday, July 29. The team 'will be careful' with Wilson.

Footballguys view: You're damn right they'll be careful. Neck injuries have ended several careers in the NFL. The team is hoping that Wilson can make a comeback from the neck injury he sustained last year.

  Falcons | Steven Jackson has hammy issue    Tue Jul 29, 06:16 PM

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) injured his hamstring Monday, July 28, which is why he wasn't practicing Tuesday, July 29. Head coach Mike Smith said Jackson will be ready for the team's first game.

Footballguys view: Without Jackson on the practice field, guys like Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie Devonta Freeman will get more of an opportunity. We've seen what Rodgers is--decent receiver and change of pace back--but Freeman is the one to watch here. He is built low to the ground, has a powerful lower body and he's quick enough to get to the second level of the defense in the blink of an eye. See if he can take this opportunity and run with it.

  Broncos | Chris Harris Jr. taken off PUP list    Tue Jul 29, 05:43 PM

  Jets | Geno Smith on shorter leash?    Tue Jul 29, 05:42 PM

New York Jets QB Geno Smith may be on a shorter leash this year with QB Michael Vick as his backup. Head coach Rex Ryan said the team's quarterback situation is ideal in that there is a veteran backup waiting who knows the system if Smith doesn't succeed.

Footballguys view: This is what we've suspected all along. Smith could be the quarterback of the future for this team, but he'll have to play well to keep his job. Vick has a ton of experience and could take over for Smith if the second-year pro struggles. It's a make-or-break year for Rex Ryan, and he needs to do whatever he can to win games.

Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson is reportedly close to a deal on a new contract.

  Jets | Calvin Pryor sits, Jace Amaro limited    Tue Jul 29, 04:39 PM

New York Jets SS Calvin Pryor (concussion) did not practice and TE Jace Amaro (knee) was limited Tuesday, July 29. Head coach Rex Ryan said Pryor is progressing, however.

Footballguys view: The team will be careful with both rookies here. Pryor is a big-hitter who can be an enforcer near the line of scrimmage. Amaro is a raw-but-athletic move tight end who could develop into a nice weapon for the Jets offense.

Back in 2003, Abraham was cited for DWI when he was with the Jets. Abraham has not reported to the team's training camp, and he could be facing a suspension from the league when the legal process has been exhausted.

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene left practice with a trainer Tuesday, July 28. Greene missed time this offseason with a right knee injury, but this could be something different.

Footballguys view: Greene may be squarely on the roster bubble this year. Fantasy owners are salivating at the idea of rookie Bishop Sankey being the lead back for the Titans without Greene taking away any touches. Sankey's ADP is RB20 (4.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.
