  Chiefs | Tamba Hali to be limited participant    Tue Aug 23, 12:44 AM

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs LB Tamba Hali (knee) is expected to practice on a limited basis now that he has been activated from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Hali will work back slowly as he prepares for the start of the regular season. With fellow pass-rusher Justin Houston out for the foreseeable future, the Chiefs could use Hali in a big way. He's not the same player he used to be, but Hali could snare around six sacks this while playing well as a run defender.

  Falcons | Vic Beasley should play Thursday    Mon Aug 22, 05:22 PM

Atlanta Falcons LB Vic Beasley (shoulder) is not expected to be limited during the preseason game against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Aug. 25, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Beasley's pressures can be turned into sacks this year. As a rookie in 2015, Beasley had 33 QB hurries, five QB hits but only four sacks. The team wants to see more from him during his sophomore season.

  Broncos | DeMarcus Ware off NFI list    Mon Aug 22, 03:28 PM

Denver Broncos DE DeMarcus Ware (back) has been activated from the Non-Football Illness list Monday, Aug. 22, and will practice Tuesday, Aug. 23, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Footballguys view: Ware isn't quite the same player he used to be, and the veteran will play a part-time role for the Broncos this year. We should see second-year pro Shane Ray start opposite of Von Miller in 2016. Ware will come on the field in obvious passing situations and could still snare five sacks or so.

  Chiefs | Tamba Hali off the PUP list    Mon Aug 22, 02:56 PM

Kansas City Chiefs LB Tamba Hali (knee) was taken off the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, Aug. 22. He will practice Tuesday, Aug. 23.

Footballguys view: The veteran pass-rusher had his knee scoped back in February, but he's on track to play in Week 1. The Chiefs have wisely been cautious with Hali, and we think that continues with Hali playing no (or very limited) snaps in the preseason.

  Ravens | Elvis Dumervil returns    Mon Aug 22, 09:38 AM

Baltimore Ravens LB Elvis Dumervil (foot) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, Aug. 22, and returned to practice.

Footballguys view: Foot surgery from earlier this offseason has kept Dumervil from practicing to this point. We don't think the Ravens need to rush the veteran pass-rusher out there at any time during the rest of the preseason. However, we should see Dumervil ready for Week 1 of the regular season.

  Steelers | James Harrison to talk with NFL    Thu Aug 18, 03:53 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers LB James Harrison has agreed to talk with the NFL regarding the allegations that they received performance-enhancing drugs, according to sources. Harrison is scheduled to meet with the NFL Monday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Harrison was the leader of the players holding out against meeting with the league, so this is big for the NFL. It takes place after the deadline, but the NFL will just be happy to have Harrison in to answer some questions.

  Packers | Two Packers LBs to talk with NFL    Thu Aug 18, 03:43 PM

Green Bay Packers LBs Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers have agreed to talk with the NFL regarding the allegations that they received performance-enhancing drugs, according to sources.

Footballguys view: This was the only way this was going to end. Really, it's hard to tell a boss "no" when they need a meeting like this and it gives Matthews and Peppers the chance to clear the air. Hopefully, that is all that comes of this.

  Titans | Kevin Dodd activated    Wed Aug 17, 12:38 PM

Tennessee Titans LB Kevin Dodd (foot) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: Their early second-round pick has the upside to be a quality defender in the NFL. The rookie has a relentless motor and does a good job of finding the ball-carrier as plays break down in front of him. Expect the Titans to be cautious with Dodd as he returns from this injury.

  Broncos | DeMarcus Ware could be cleared soon    Tue Aug 16, 02:20 PM

Denver Broncos DE DeMarcus Ware (back) is close to a return and could be cleared for practice in four to five days, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Footballguys view: Ware did some work on the sidelines before practice today. He's on the NFI list with a back problem that plagued him last year. The Broncos will be cautious bringing Ware back, and his role this season will be limited to that of a part-time pass-rusher.

  Lions | DeAndre Levy activated    Tue Aug 16, 09:43 AM

Detroit Lions LB DeAndre Levy (hip) was activated from the Non-Football Injury list Tuesday, Aug. 16, and is expected to practice.

Footballguys view: Levy's mysterious hip injury doesn't look like it will keep out as long as it did last year, but this extended absence is still very troubling. The Lions defense struggled without him last year, and if he can't play at his previous level, then it will increase the upside of the Lions offense in more catchup game scripts.

  Steelers | James Harrison facing suspension    Mon Aug 15, 10:07 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers LB James Harrison is among four players who will be suspended by Thursday, Aug. 25, if they do not comply with the National Football League's probe into performance-enhancing drugs.

  Packers | Two GB defenders might be penalized    Mon Aug 15, 10:06 PM

Green Bay Packers LBs Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers among four players who will be suspended by Thursday, Aug. 25, if they do not comply with the National Football League's probe into performance-enhancing drugs. The suspension would be for conduct detrimental, and separate from any possible discipline the players would face under the league's drug policies.

Footballguys view: This is more about yielding to Goodell's power than whatever offense might have happened that came from a report that has been discredited. The Packers can't afford to lose Matthews, and Peppers is still one of their better outside linebackers.

Free-agent DE Kroy Biermann (Falcons) is expected to sign a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills, according to a source. The financial terms have not been disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Bills outside linebacker group is depleted, so Biermann should get playing time early in the season. Rex Ryan's defense will need to take chances to generate pressure.

Baltimore Ravens LB Terrell Suggs (Achilles') was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list and is practicing Monday, Aug. 15.
