Footballguys view: Brooks has good straight-line speed, but obviously he's struggling to stay with receivers downfield. We'll see if he can turn it around as training camp rolls on.

Footballguys view: The PUP list for the regular season means that Colvin will be forced to miss the first six weeks of the year. After that, the Jaguars will have a three-week grace period to decide whether or not to activate Colvin or put him on season-ending Injured Reserve.

Chicago Bears CB Tim Jennings said he needs to work on his pass-rush moves as he is expecting to blitz more this season from the nickel cornerback position.

  Cardinals | Two candidates at PUP list    Mon Jul 21, 01:41 PM

Arizona Cardinals DT Alameda Ta'amu (knee) and FS Tyrann Mathieu (knee) are candidates to be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list at the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Ta'amu has struggled with injuries during his pro career. If healthy, he can eat up space in the middle of the defensive line. Mathieu is one of the best young free safeties in the game today. The team will be quite cautious with him as he comes back from this knee injury.

  Chiefs | Several injuries practice    Mon Jul 21, 01:07 PM

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee), WR Kyle Williams (knee), WR A.J. Jenkins (hamstring) and CB Christopher Owens (hamstring) participated in practice Monday, July 21.

Footballguys view: The team really likes Kelce, and he should be the starter at tight end if healthy this year. Kelce is tough and knows how to use his size in order to "box out" defenders. The Chiefs desperately need weapons in the passing game besides Dwayne Bowe and Jamaal Charles. We'll see if Kelce can be that guy. Keep him as a low-end TE2 with upside or on your waiver wire speed dial this year.

  Broncos | Four could go on PUP    Mon Jul 21, 11:43 AM

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller (knee), CB Chris Harris Jr. (knee), DT Kevin Vickerson (hip) and TE Joel Dreessen (knee) could begin the preseason on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: We wouldn't be shocked to see all four of these players go on PUP to begin training camp. The Broncos want Miller and Harris to be ready for the start of regular season. Both are coming back from late-season knee injuries suffered in 2013. Miller seems to be ahead in the recovery process, but expect the team to take it easy on him when he does come back.

  Jets | Rex Ryan confident in Dee Milliner    Sun Jul 20, 11:39 PM

New York Jets CB Dee Milliner can become a shutdown corner in the NFL, according to head coach Rex Ryan. 'I think he's got a chance to be,' Ryan said. 'I don't think there's any doubt. But a lot of things can happen. A guy can get injured. A guy can do whatever where a guy gets derailed. But (I'm) saying that I'll be disappointed if he's not. Something like (injuries), in my opinion, would have to happen to him for him not to end up being that kind of player.'

San Diego Chargers CB Jason Verrett (shoulder) should be ready to participate when training camp begins.

Footballguys view: Verrett was the Chargers first-round pick this year. He's not the biggest corner, but he plays bigger than he size and has an incredible nose for the football. Verrett is fast to the ball, and he's known as an aggressive player who likes to make plays.

  49ers | LaMichael James top candidate for return jobs    Sat Jul 19, 12:01 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James will be entering training camp as the leading candidate for the kick and punt return jobs. WR Bruce Ellington, WR Devon Wylie, WR Quinton Patton and CB Perrish Cox are expected to compete with James for the jobs.

Footballguys view: James has to do something to stand out in the league's most crowded backfield. He's buried on the depth chart behind Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and rookie Carlos Hyde (at least). James has little fantasy value--even in dynasty leagues.
