  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch arrives in Seattle    Thu Jul 31, 05:21 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch arrived in Seattle Thursday, July 31, according to a source. Lynch officially ended his holdout from training camp.

Footballguys view: While he didn't get the money he wanted, it's best for him to be back in camp and getting ready for a run at a second Super Bowl. He's considered on of our top running backs in fantasy, a top end RB1 and looks poised to have a strong season especially with a chip on his shoulder.

  Steelers | Darrius Heyward-Bey leaves practice    Thu Jul 31, 04:34 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (concussion) reportedly left practice Thursday, July 31, with concussion symptoms.

Footballguys view: DHB has long been an underwhelming receiver both fantasy and NFL-wise. Even healthy, there is no reason to have him on your fantasy roster.

  Jets | Geno Smith protecting ball better    Thu Jul 31, 04:09 PM

New York Jets QB Geno Smith has fixed his turnover problems so far this offseason, according to offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.

Footballguys view: We'll see whether it holds under live fire next week when they actually play a game. The Jets need to have Smith on point and protecting the ball if they are to be successful and if Smith cannot do that, he will probably find the bench very quickly.

  Giants | Robert Ayers dealing with ankle issue    Thu Jul 31, 03:49 PM

New York Giants DE Robert Ayers (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in practice Thursday, July 31.

Footballguys view: The Giants will be cautious with Ayers, but ultimately he is a role player. The team will need him, but more as a rotational player. He may not see any time in the game this coming weekend, but should return soon enough.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell taking part in practice    Thu Jul 31, 03:43 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) is participating in practice Thursday, July 31.

Footballguys view: The Steelers and Bell's owners have to be happy as the second-year running back is poised for very good season. We have Bell tagged as a low-end RB1, solid RB2 coming into the 2014 NFL season.

  Giants | Bennett Jackson to undergo further tests    Thu Jul 31, 03:41 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants CB Bennett Jackson (ankle) has been sent for X-rays on his ankle. The team is hoping the injury is just a sprain.

  Giants | Will Beatty exits early    Thu Jul 31, 03:36 PM

New York Giants OT William Beatty (undisclosed) left practice early Thursday, July 31.

Footballguys view: Beatty's injury was a hand injury according to our own Andrew Garda who was in camp. Right now the team isn't massively concerned and has to be happy it wasn't a repeat of the injury which plagued him last year. The line is slowly coming together, and should be in sync when the new offense launches in Week 1.

  Chiefs | Eric Berry expected to be fine    Thu Jul 31, 03:33 PM

Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs SS Eric Berry (ankle) is expected to be fine and left practice early for precautionary reasons.

Footballguys view: That rush of wind past your ear was all of Kansas City exhaling at once. Berry is integral to the success of this defense, so this is great news for the team and its fans.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch will not receive a new deal    Thu Jul 31, 03:16 PM

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch will not receive a new deal and added money, but the team is expected to add some financial concessions to his contract.

Footballguys view: As we suspected, Lynch isn't getting new money. It's hard to imagine that any 'financial considerations' will make up for it though, as there is little chance the team breaks the bank for a 30-year-old running back, which Lynch will become while he is a free agent in 2016. Maybe they will fill his locker with Skittles.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch planning to end holdout    Thu Jul 31, 03:07 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is planning to end his holdout and report to the team in the next 24 hours.

Footballguys view: Great news for the team and Lynch owners. Not as good for Lynch who reportedly didn't get the money he wanted. We don't think that will impact his play and, in fact, might fire him up even more. He's still an RB1 in any league.

  Bengals | Vontaze Burfict contract talks hit an impasse    Thu Jul 31, 02:54 PM

Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict appears to have hit an impasse with the team in talks about a contract extension.

Footballguys view: They want the deal done but we know the Bengals can be cheap, so this may not happen. Even if they had to tender him after this season, it could still be cheap as they got Burfict for pennies when he went undrafted as a rookie. If he has a big season though, it could cost them long term.

  Buccaneers | Alterraun Verner not practicing    Thu Jul 31, 02:39 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Alterraun Verner (hamstring) is not participating in practice Thursday, July 31.

Footballguys view: A high-priced and key acquisition, the Bucs will play it safe with Verner as they need him for the season more than the preseason. They'll make sure the hammy is right before they send him out to practice again.

  Giants | Corey Washington injured in practice    Thu Jul 31, 02:22 PM

New York Giants WR Corey Washington (undisclosed) was getting look by trainers during practice Thursday, July 31.

Footballguys view: A fringe player at best, any injury is tough on a player like this. We'll monitor and see if he gets in some practice tomorrow or into the game. It is unlikely Washington makes the roster with so many good players, and even if he does, he won't have fantasy relevance.

  Giants | Bennett Jackson suffers leg injury    Thu Jul 31, 02:17 PM

New York Giants CB Bennett Jackson (leg) suffered a left leg injury during practice Thursday, July 31.

Footballguys view: Coach Tom Coughlin told the media the injury was to Bennett's ankle. They'll check it out and he may miss this weekend's game but it didn't look serious.

  Chargers | Brandon Flowers sits    Thu Jul 31, 01:58 PM

San Diego Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Thursday, July 31. It was likely a veteran day off.

Footballguys view: Flowers will be fine and as the report suggests, should be getting a veteran day off. So this is no worry. He'll be in the lineup soon enough and should bounce back from a poor 2013 season in a scheme which will be a much better fit.

  Seahawks | Sign Ronald Johnson    Thu Jul 31, 01:43 PM

The Seattle Seahawks signed WR Ronald Johnson (Eagles) Thursday, July 31. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Ron Johnson is still trying to make it in the league. He's a longshot to make the final roster, but the Seahawks have been willing to give guys second and third chances under Pete Carroll. Johnson's college coach was Carroll, and he's trying to get his pro career back on track after missing most of the last two years.

  Seahawks | Anthony McCoy placed on IR    Thu Jul 31, 01:38 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Anthony McCoy (Achilles') was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, July 31.

Footballguys view: Two years and two season ending injuries will probably spell the end of McCoy's career. Targets will now be split between Zach Miller and Luke Wilson, neither of which are better than a TE3.

  Jets | Calvin Pryor cleared for physical activity    Thu Jul 31, 01:27 PM

New York Jets SS Calvin Pryor (concussion) has been cleared for physical activity after suffering a concussion. Pryor has not been cleared for contact.

Footballguys view: The Jets will be careful with the talented rookie here. They'll continue to follow NFL protocol as Pryor returns from this concussion. He's a hard-hitter who plays with little regard for his body or personal safety. Keep an eye on Pryor to make sure he avoids having concussion problems in his first year as a pro.

  Jaguars | Chad Henne not in danger    Thu Jul 31, 01:24 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne is in no danger of losing his starting job at this point, according to head coach Gus Bradley. Henne has looked comfortable during practice and is performing well.

Footballguys view: Henne is a seasoned veteran, and the team is turning to him as the starter this year. If Henne struggles, there's a chance that Bortles could replace him later in the season.

  Jaguars | OC happy with Blake Bortles    Thu Jul 31, 01:24 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles worked on his development and has progressed faster than originally anticipated, according to offensive coordinator Judd Fisch. 'I think that one of the things you always worry about is how does a guy handle something that he's never done before. He's had OTAs and minicamp and then now he's got four weeks to figure out what is he going to do. I thought he really prepared so he came back ahead of where I thought he was going to be,' Fisch said.

Footballguys view: Bortles can run the plays as designed. He's a facilitator more than he is a playmaker, but that's not something to hold against him. Bortles should sit this year behind Chad Henne, but he is the QB of the future for the Jaguars.
