Tony Moeaki - TE - Buffalo Bills Posted 7/26/14 1:00pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Buffalo Bills TE Tony Moeaki (hamstring) and S Kenny Ladler (hamstring) suffered hamstring injuries during practice Friday, July 25.
Huddle Up:  Moeaki has flashed fantasy promise but just can't seem to stay healthy. On the sidelines icing a bad hammy is no way for him to beat out Scott Chandler for reps in the Bills offense.

Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers Posted 7/26/14 1:00pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) said his ankle is not 100 percent at this point, but it is getting better each day.
Huddle Up:  Because much of Newton's fantasy value is derived from his rushing, expect his ankle to be an ongoing story during training camp. A Newton that runs less is no longer a top-five fantasy quarterback, especially given his corps of receivers.

Cordarrelle Patterson - WR - Minnesota Vikings Posted 7/26/14 1:00pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson (leg) is considered day-to-day because of a leg injury.
Huddle Up:  Far too early to be overly concerned about Patterson's health, but maybe a day or two off from practice will slow down the hype train surrounding Cordarrelle's fantasy value this season.

Vick Ballard - RB - Indianapolis Colts Posted 7/26/14 1:00pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' tendon during practice Friday, July 25.
Huddle Up:  Ballard can't seem to catch a break. He tore his ACL in the first game last season and now will likely miss all of 2014 with the Achilles' tendon injury. Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw remain in the Colts' backfield committee.

Kenbrell Thompkins - WR - New England Patriots Posted 7/26/14 1:00pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
New England Patriots WR Kenbrell Thompkins has stood out through two days of training camp practices, catching several diving balls along the way.
Huddle Up:  The Patriots are hoping some of their young receivers step up their game, and Thompkins is the first to do so. Now we watch to see if he can keep this up and earn a spot at or near the top of Tom Brady's receiver rotation.

Shonn Greene - RB - Tennessee Titans Posted 7/26/14 12:50pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee) is ready for training camp after missing time in the offseason due to a right knee injury, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
Huddle Up:  Greene is the veteran fallback plan to Bishop Sankey, and while he may horn in on more action than Sankey owners would like to believe he'll be more of a complimentary piece in Tennessee than a true feature-back option.

Geno Smith - QB - New York Jets Posted 7/26/14 12:50pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
New York Jets QB Geno Smith logged three-quarters of the first-team practice reps for the second straight day on Friday, July 25.
Huddle Up:  Michael Vick already knows Marty Mornhinweg's offense, and the Jets pretty much know what Vick can do. Smith getting the reps is hardly a shock, and he's still in the driver's seat for the QB1 gig in New York.

Andre Johnson - WR - Houston Texans Posted 7/26/14 12:46pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson said 'That's the plan' when asked if he wants to finish his career with the team. He feels confident with the direction of the team after meeting with the front office. Johnson ended his holdout this week.
Huddle Up:  Sounds like AJ is far from holding out. But he'll be breaking in a new quarterback and a new system and has DeAndre Hopkins nipping at his heels, so he's also moving the wrong direction from his days as an elite fantasy receiver.

Sam Bradford - QB - St. Louis Rams Posted 7/25/14 9:48am et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) will be a full participant at the start of training camp, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Fisher said Bradford was unlikely to play in the first preseason game, but not because of the injury.
Huddle Up:  The Rams are banking on Bradford to stay healthy this season, so don't be surprised if they encase him in bubble wrap and proceed with extreme caution this preseason.

Chris Johnson - RB - New York Jets Posted 7/25/14 9:48am et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
New York Jets RB Chris Johnson was put in motion and flexed out wide a lot in practice Thursday, July 24.
Huddle Up:  Marty Mornhinweg is looking for ways to take advantage of CJ?K's speed, and there's no better way to do that than getting him the ball in space. Johnson has had success as a receiver, and in the Jets' West Coast system it's something he'll be expected to do more of this season.

Andre Johnson - WR - Houston Texans Posted 7/25/14 9:48am et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson has reported to camp Friday, July 25. The two sides are still in contact about an extension.
Huddle Up:  There was some talk about AJ holding out, but he'll work on negotiating a new deal while honoring his old one.

Shayne Graham - PK - New Orleans Saints Posted 7/25/14 9:48am et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
New Orleans Saints PK Shayne Graham, 36, is in a battle for the place-kicking job with 24-year-old PK Derek Dimke. Graham appears to have the edge, unless Dimke clearly out-kicks him in training camp. The Saints may bring in other place kickers to compete, however.
Huddle Up:  Yes, kicker news. Few teams put more points on the board than the Saints, and as an added bonus they play in a climate controlled environment. Those are two big plusses for a fantasy kicker, so if Graham has the inside edge on the gig he should be very near the top of your fantasy rankings at the position.

Dez Bryant - WR - Dallas Cowboys Posted 7/25/14 9:48am et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant's agent has talked with the team several times about a possible extension for Bryant, but the two sides are not close to a deal at this point.
Huddle Up:  Bryant playing for a contract is an enticing prospect for fantasy owners, so if Jerry Jones wants to play poker with Dez's deal you won't hear any complaining from the fantasy world.

Tyler Eifert - TE - Cincinnati Bengals Posted 7/24/14 11:53pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert said the shoulder injury he had during the offseason workouts has completely healed.
Huddle Up:  The second-year TE will be getting first-team reps early in camp with Jermaine Gresham on the PUP list as he looks to build on his 39-445-2 rookie season.

Josh Gordon - WR - Cleveland Browns Posted 7/24/14 11:53pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon spent 2 weeks in a rehab facility in California after he was arrested for driving while intoxicated and speeding earlier this month, according to a source.
Huddle Up:  Hopefully, the stint did some good for Gordon who will appeal his one-year suspension on Aug. 1. Even if he wins the appeal, expect 2013's top fantasy wideout to miss at least half of the upcoming season.

Marshawn Lynch - RB - Seattle Seahawks Posted 7/24/14 11:53pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch and the organization are at a stalemate in talks regarding a new deal, and the RB will hold out of training camp, according to a source. Lynch wants top-three money for the position, while team officials are unwilling to give him a new deal, believing he is paid adequately. Lynch showed up for minicamp workouts only to avoid being fined.
Huddle Up:  Backup Christine Michael already was a sleeper before the holdout news, and his fantasy value will keep climbing the longer the Lynch stalemate lasts.

Joseph Morgan - WR - New Orleans Saints Posted 7/24/14 11:53pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
New Orleans Saints WR Joe Morgan (knee) is good to go for practice, according to head coach Sean Payton.
Huddle Up:  A torn ACL nixed Morgan's entire 2013 season, and with the Saints using draft picks on Kenny Stills and Brandin Cooks the past 2 years, he'll be fighting for his roster life this August.

Jonathan Stewart - RB - Carolina Panthers Posted 7/24/14 4:54pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart is expected to miss one-to-two weeks as he recovers from a hamstring injury. Stewart will not be placed on the team's Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up:  Another season, more injury questions for Stewart, who has played in only a combined 15 games the past 2 seasons.

Rashad Jennings - RB - New York Giants Posted 7/24/14 4:54pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is listed as the team's starting running back on the first unofficial depth chart of training camp.
Huddle Up:  No surprise here, but just know the looking-healthy David Wilson, Peyton Hillis and fourth-round pick Andre Williams will all be angling for a share of the action.

Cam Newton - QB - Carolina Panthers Posted 7/24/14 4:54pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) was cleared for practice, according to general manager David Gettleman.
Huddle Up:  Good news for the Panthers, Newton and his fantasy owners as the QB looks to make it four top-five fantasy QB finishes in four NFL seasons this year.
