  Broncos | DeMarcus Ware sitting out    Wed Jul 30, 02:20 PM

Denver Broncos DE DeMarcus Ware (leg) is not participating in practice Wednesday, July 30.

Footballguys view: Ware's injury is minor, but you'd prefer to see him not showing his age this early in camp. Adding his ability to generate knockout plays as a pass rusher was part of the Broncos offseason response to a bitterly disappointing blowout Super Bowl loss.

  Lions | Two making progress    Mon Jul 28, 06:22 PM

Detroit Lions WR T.J. Jones (shoulder) and DE Ziggy Ansah (shoulder) are making progress in his rehab, but there are no timetables for their returns, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Both players are on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: The pair shouldn't be sidelined for long, but Ansah needs to get rolling soon to stay on the upside DE2 train in IDP leagues. He was tremendous in his rookie year when he was healthy, but that was far too rare, so it is important to see him healthy before drafting him too early in IDP leagues.

  Redskins | Everette Brown signed    Mon Jul 28, 02:14 PM

The Washington Redskins have signed free-agent LB Everette Brown (Cowboys). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Brown has washed out in every stop he's made in the NFL. Originally a second-round pick for the Carolina Panthers in 2009, Brown has struggled with staying healthy and producing when he's not banged up. He had phenomenal talent coming out of Florida State, but he only has six sacks in four seasons as a pro.

  Cowboys | Tyrone Crawford fully healthy     Fri Jul 25, 03:41 PM

Dallas Cowboys DT Tyrone Crawford (Achilles') said he is fully healthy heading into training camp. 'It feels good to be back out here, playing football with my team,' Crawford said. 'I feel good. No pain. No nothing. I'm ready to go.'

Footballguys view: He has felt some more soreness than he expected but otherwise feels very good. The Cowboys have very few warm bodies on the defensive line so he'd better be. He also needs to improve his game over last year's efforts when he gets in the game, though with Henry Melton on the mend, that could be rare.

  Titans | Jurrell Casey to report    Fri Jul 25, 09:39 AM

Tennessee Titans DT Jurrell Casey will report to camp Friday, July 25, as talks continue on a contract extension.

Footballguys view: The two sides have been talking for some time, so it's not a shock that he's in camp. It's likely a good sign that they'll work something out sooner than later. He had 10.5 sacks last year - a huge leap from the 5.5 he'd had total in his first two years - and the Titans will want to lock him up before he repeats the feat and hits the market. Be cautious with relying on him too much in fantasy IDP leagues though - if he sees the sack totals drop, his tackles don't produce a ton of fantasy points.

  Rams | William Hayes ahead of schedule    Fri Jul 25, 09:04 AM

St. Louis Rams DE William Hayes (undisclosed) had three surgeries this offseason and is ahead of schedule. He's on pace to make his preseason debut in Week 2 or 3 of the preseason.

Footballguys view: Details on his surgeries have been sketchy, and likely were minor things to clean up some loose bodies or something. He'll be the third defensive end and rotate in for Chris Long and Robert Quinn on occasion.
