Footballguys view: Mercilus is coming back from a torn pec, hopefully this issue is unrelated. The Texans defense could be tough to deal with against the pass if Mercilus, JJ Watt, and Jadeveon Clowney can come all the way back from their various surgeries.

Baltimore Ravens RB Kenneth Dixon (hamstring), TE Mark Andrews (undisclosed), LB Tyus Bowser (undisclosed) and OT Greg Senat (undisclosed) all returned to practice Saturday, Aug. 4, after missing time over the past week.

Footballguys view: Dixon's absence was short enough that it shouldn't affect his status in the backfield. He's a battle with Javorius Allen for touches behind Alex Collins. Allen is the more reliable player, but Dixon has more talent and upside.

  Steelers | Three dealing with minor injuries    Tue Jul 31, 03:14 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (foot), LB T.J. Watt (hamstring) and FS Sean Davis (groin) are dealing with minor injuries and are considered day-to-day, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Footballguys view: McDonald always seems to be dealing with minor but nagging injuries. This foot injury is the latest one. He's got plenty of potential if he ever stays healthy, and reports earlier this offseason suggested he could be a big part of the Steelers passing game. He's a TE2 with upside for Fantasy GMs...but he's got to be healthy first.
