  Patriots | Several to start camp on PUP list    Mon Jul 21, 05:15 PM

New England Patriots CB Alfonzo Dennard (shoulder), WR Aaron Dobson (foot), WR Jeremy Gallon (undisclosed), DT Tommy Kelly (knee) and WR Matthew Slater (undisclosed) will begin training camp on the team's physically unable to perform list.

Footballguys view: Dobson is the player fantasy owners need to watch here. He had an inconsistent rookie season last year, but the team needs him to start playing up to his potential this year. Dobson could start on the outside opposite Danny Amendola this season.

  Bills | Marcell Dareus excused, will return    Mon Jul 21, 04:52 PM

Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus left practice Monday, July 21, for personal reasons, according to head coach Doug Marrone. He is expected back for the evening practice.

Footballguys view: Dareus is under contract for the next two years, but his act has been wearing a bit thin. Arrested twice this offseason, Dareus failed to pass the team's conditioning test at the start of training camp. He's incredibly talented, but Dareus has to stay on track if he's going to play up to his potential in Buffalo.

  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.

  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.

  Bills | Marcell Dareus testing team's patience    Mon Jul 21, 10:39 AM

Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus has drawn the ire of Bills general manager Doug Whaley after reporting to camp out of shape. 'It's cause for concern,' Whaley said. 'You always are disappointed when one of your guys isn't ready. But we think he's not far off. So hopefully sooner than later.'

Footballguys view: The Bills went ahead and picked up his fifth-year option, and now they have him under contract for the next two seasons. Dareus is not going to get a long-term extension if he continues to behave like this.

  Bills | Marcell Dareus out of shape    Sun Jul 20, 06:14 PM

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus failed his conditioning test, which is why he was put on the inactive list.

Footballguys view: Dareus has fantastic ability on the field, but his act might be wearing a bit thin in Buffalo. He's been arrested twice this offseason and he's known as a player with questionable dedication during the season. Dareus is under contract for the next two years, but he needs to turn things around off the field if he wants a long-term extension.

  Ravens | Terrency Cody placed on PUP list    Fri Jul 18, 03:07 PM

Baltimore Ravens DT Terrence Cody (hip) was placed on the team's physically unable to perform list. Cody underwent hip surgery this offseason.

Footballguys view: The camp PUP list is easy to come back from. Players can be activated from the list at any time in camp. Cody has been a disappointment as a pro, and he's in a make-or-break season in 2014.

  Steelers | Cam Thomas could start    Wed Jul 16, 01:08 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers DE Cam Thomas could start at defensive end until DE Stephon Tuitt is ready to take over the starting job. Thomas appears to be better suited to be a swing player at defensive end and defensive tackle.

Footballguys view: Thomas is a seasoned veteran the Steelers added in free agency from the Chargers earlier this year. Tuitt was a nice value pick by the Steelers in the second round of the 2014 NFL draft. He is an athletic big man, measuring in at 6'5" 310 pounds. Tuitt is fast but needs to work on his quickness. He can take up space as a run-stuffer, and Tuitt is developing his ability to get interior push on the quarterback.

  Bears | Ego Ferguson expected to learn both tackle positions    Tue Jul 15, 12:33 PM

Chicago Bears DT Ego Ferguson is expected to learn both defensive tackle positions. There is a chance Ferguson could get as many repetitions as the first team during training-camp and the preseason games.

Footballguys view: Ferguson is a run-stuffer who can stand his ground against double teams. He understands leverage and does a good job hand fighting in the trenches. Ferguson lacks the burst to create much interior pressure, but he can occupy space to allow linebackers behind him to make plays.

  Ravens | Terrence Cody encouraged by recovery    Mon Jul 14, 02:31 PM

Baltimore Ravens DT Terrence Cody (hip) is excited to be able to do more on the field now that his nagging hip injury is behind him. Cody thinks of it as a fresh start and believes he'll able to show what he's capable of.

Footballguys view: "Mount Cody" has failed to live up to the hype surrounding him when he came out of Alabama in 2010. The Ravens selected him in the second round of the draft that year, and he's only registered 45 tackles (and zero sacks) in four seasons. Cody has struggled with weight issues and staying healthy during his pro career. We'll see if 2014 can be different for him.

  Falcons | Corey Peters' status for camp uncertain    Sun Jul 13, 11:37 PM

It is not known if Atlanta Falcons DT Corey Peters (Achilles') will be ready for the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: There's no need to rush Peters back before he's ready. Achilles' injuries aren't quite as devastating as they used to be in the NFL, but the Falcons need to proceed with caution here. Staring Peters on the camp PUP list is likely going to be their decision.

  Redskins | Three could be PUP candidates    Sat Jul 12, 12:39 PM

Washington Redskins DE Stephen Bowen (knee), DT Jason Hatcher (knee) and CB Richard Crawford (knee) are candidates to start training camp on Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: The PUP list for training camp is different than the PUP list for the regular season. In camp, teams can put a player on the PUP list and bring him back at any time. During the regular season, the PUP list prevents a player from coming back for six weeks. After that there is a three week grace period to determine if a player is ready, or if he needs to be put on season-ending Injured Reserve.

  Lions | Team to get creative with defensive line    Thu Jul 10, 01:24 PM

Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh said the team is going to have fun with how the defense is used in 2014. Defensive coordinator Teryl Austin plans to get creative with how he uses the defensive line. "We're going to have a lot of fun going against offenses and our defensive line play is going to be very similar but at the same time very different," Suh said. "That will be for those offensive lines to figure out; not going to give any secrets away right now but we're going to have some fun out there."

Footballguys view: We've heard and seen the team move Suh around but it hasn't helped his fantasy numbers. We'll believe it when we see it and we're a bit hesitant to think it would make a big difference anyway.

  Lions | Ndamukong Suh's time ticking?    Thu Jul 10, 10:48 AM

Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh's odds of re-signing aren't great if the team doesn't sign him to an extension before the season begins.

Footballguys view: Suh is one of the best defensive tackles in the game. His ability to rush the passer is ridiculous and while his run-stopping ability isn't always perfect, he's still good. The Lions have to start making some tough decisions with the roster given their lack of cap room. Still losing Suh would hurt--the Lions more than Suh who would be a free agent for about 15 minutes and only that long because lines would be jammed. From a fantasy standpoint, Suh is ranked as a DT3 by our staff--he's a decent producer but has a much bigger NFL impact than he has a fantasy impact.

  Patriots | Dominque Easley could be ready for camp    Sun Jul 6, 11:02 PM

New England Patriots DT Dominique Easley (knee) could be ready to participate at the start of training camp.

Footballguys view: Easley is just as talented as the #13 overall pick, Aaron Donald, but he is coming off of his second ACL tear (one to each knee). He returned for the season opener in 2012 following a late November ACL tear in 2011, so he could be ready to play week 1 and make an immediate impact for the Patriots. If your IDP league has DT broken out as a separate position, Easley is definitely worth a pick late in rookie drafts.
