  Steelers | Jayrone Elliott signed    Thu Aug 22, 12:27 PM

Free-agent LB Jayrone Elliott (Dolphins) signed Thursday, Aug. 22, with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He replaces DL Lavon Hooks (Achilles) who was waived with an injury designation.

Footballguys view: Elliott has flashed some edge rush ability in the past, but he probably won't stick with the Steelers. He could be a player they call later in the season if they suffer injuries at outside linebacker.

  Texans | Jadeveon Clowney on the market?    Tue Aug 13, 05:26 PM

Houston Texans DE/LB Jadeveon Clowney has yet to report to camp as of Tuesday, Aug. 13. Longtime beat writer John McClain stated on social media he would be surprised if Clowney isn't traded.

Footballguys view: If McClain thinks that Clowney will be dealt, then look out for a trade to happen. The word was that Clowney would report to the team after the third preseason game. The Texans franchise-tagged player was not able to strike a new long-term deal, so Clowney is set to play on a one-year nearly $16 million contract. Stay tuned.

  Buccaneers | Lavonte David has surgery    Mon Aug 5, 11:37 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Lavonte David (knee) had surgery to address a torn meniscus in his left knee Monday, Aug. 5, but he's not in danger of missing the regular season opener.

Footballguys view: This wasn't just irritation from playing on turf. David could be less than 100% for an opener against the 49ers and then the Bucs play on a Thursday against the Panthers, so David's ability to be ready for two games in quick succession will be tested. The Bucs defense can't afford to lose anyone else.

  Eagles | Kamu Grugier-Hill to miss time    Sat Aug 3, 07:22 PM

Philadelphia Eagles LB Kamu Grugier-Hill (knee) has been diagnosed with a Grade 3 medial collateral ligament, according to sources. He is expected to miss some regular season games but likely will return relatively early during the season.

Footballguys view: This could have been worse, but it's still a blow as Grugier-Hill has been the best linebacker in Eagles training camp. He falls off of the redraft IDP radar, but will likely be an in-season pickup once he's healthy. New acquisition Zach Brown's transition to his role in the defense becomes even more important now.

  Buccaneers | Lavonte David not on field    Sat Aug 3, 07:15 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Lavonte David (undisclosed) is not practicing for the second consecutive day Saturday, Aug. 3. Head coach Bruce Arians said David is dealing with some swelling but did not disclose the specific injury.

Footballguys view: It was later disclosed as knee swelling and chalked up to the turf. We'll watch this as the Bucs are already in the bottom 5-10 in defenses. They can't afford any losses to an already compromised defense.

  Eagles | Kamu Grugier-Hill injured    Sat Aug 3, 06:27 PM

Philadelphia Eagles LB Kamu Grugier-Hill (knee) left practice early Saturday, Aug. 3, after suffering a knee injury.

Footballguys view: Grugier-Hill has been maybe the best linebacker in camp for the Eagles, so if this is serious, it will be a blow for a defense that is trying to work free agent pickup Zach Brown in as a starter. IDP players should watch this one closely.

  Chargers | Jatavis Brown may return in a few weeks    Sat Jul 27, 04:51 PM

Los Angeles Chargers LB Jatavis Brown (ankle) hopefully will be able to return to practice during the third week of training camp, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.

Footballguys view: Kyzir White could get more practice snaps in Brown's stead. Brown has been an IDP force at times, and a non-factor in the defense.

  Titans | Ryan Succop should be ready for opener    Sat Jul 27, 04:22 PM

Tennessee Titans PK Ryan Succop (knee) should be ready for the start of the regular season, according to head coach Mike Vrabel.

Footballguys view: Austin Bernard will get a chance to show his stuff for the other 31 teams while Succop recovers, and he'll surely be on speed dial for the Titans if Succop misses time this year.

Baltimore Ravens OG Jermaine Eluemunor, OT Orlando Brown Jr. and LB Shane Ray passed their conditioning tests Friday, July 26, and were activated from the Active/Non-Football Injury list.

Footballguys view: Brown was a standout rookie starting right tackle for the team last year, after concerns about his conditioning and body composition made him fall in the draft. This is a relief after he failed the conditioning test at the open of camp.
