  Jaguars | Four out extended period of time    Fri Aug 1, 10:21 AM

Updating previous reports, Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) and WR Tandon Doss (undisclosed), DT Jordan Miller (undisclosed) and LB John Lotulelei (leg) will miss an extended period of time.

Footballguys view: Robinson is a rookie, so this is a big blow to his ability to make an impact early this year. With Cecil Shorts and Robinson now both ailing, the Jaguars passing game is going to have trouble getting in tune during training camp.

Footballguys view: Criner has good talent, but he struggles to stay healthy. Fantasy owners in super deep dynasty leagues aren't hanging onto much if Criner is on the roster.

  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.

  49ers | Aldon Smith to meet with Roger Goodell     Thu Jul 31, 01:19 PM

San Francisco 49ers LB Aldon Smith will meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell Friday, Aug. 8. Smith is facing a suspension for three felony gun charges and a DUI.

Footballguys view: Smith is likely to be suspended, but who knows how long it will be. Goodell only popped Ravens RB Ray Rice for two games from a horrific domestic violence incident. DUI and felony gun charges could cause Smith to get suspended for about 4-6 games.

  Bills | Nigel Bradham suspended one game    Wed Jul 30, 01:54 PM

Buffalo Bills LB Nigel Bradham has been suspended one game for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Footballguys view: Bradham is in a battle with rookie third-round pick Preston Brown to take Kiko Alonso's place in the linebacker corps, so this should give Brown the edge to begin the season.

  Cardinals | John Abraham facing DUI charge    Tue Jul 29, 04:26 PM

Arizona Cardinals DE John Abraham has been charged with driving under the influence following a June 29 arrest.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the veteran here--and for the Cardinals. He led the team in sacks last year (11.5), but this isn't his first problem with DUI's. 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.

Carolina Panthers LB Thomas Davis has returned three times from torn anterior cruciate ligaments, earning a Pro Bowl berth in 2013, and has used his experience to coax injured Panthers to stay focused, he told NFL Network's Steve Wyche.

Footballguys view: Davis has fought through multiple severe injuries during his pro career. He's a fantastic story of resilience and determination. Any injured Panthers player should listen closely to what he has to say.

  Cardinals | John Abraham arrested     Mon Jul 28, 10:21 PM

Arizona Cardinals DE John Abraham was detained, questioned and later charged with multiple counts, including DUI, on Sunday, June 29, according to arrest reports in DeKalb County. Abraham missed his third straight day of training camp Monday, July 28.

Footballguys view: Abraham may be facing discipline from the league when the legal process is exhausted. He was arrested for DWI in 2003, so the NFL might choose to suspend him for multiple offenses. Abraham led the Cardinals is sacks last year with 11.5.

Detroit Lions LB Kyle Van Noy (thumb) left practice early Monday, July 28, because of a thumb injury. Head coach Jim Caldwell said Van Noy will be reevaluated Tuesday, July 29.

Footballguys view: Van Noy is on his way to starting as a rookie, and maybe having an instant impact in IDP leagues, especially those with sack-heavy scoring systems. We'll have to watch this to see if it slows down his early development.

San Diego Chargers LB Dwight Freeney (quadriceps) said he's moving around better than he expected and is encouraged by how he feels so far.

  Texans | Jadeveon Clowney not 100 percent    Sat Jul 26, 02:13 PM

Houston Texans DE Jadeveon Clowney (hernia) said he's not 100 percent and has been limited.

Footballguys view: There's no need to rush him back until he's near full strength. Clowney can be an impact pass-rusher for the Texans in year one. We'll see if they can have him near 100 percent for the start of the regular season.
