Matt Cassel - QB - Minnesota Vikings Posted 7/28/14 1:47pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Minnesota Vikings QBs Matt Cassel, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Ponder have been evenly splitting reps during the early part of training camp, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. Turner will split the reps two ways after the team's upcoming off day.
Huddle Up:  Cassel is believed to have the edge but Bridgewater is making a strong case to start. The battle will continue during the preseason but the rookie Bridgewater could be under center when the Vikings open the season in St. Louis if he performs well in August.

Golden Tate - WR - Detroit Lions Posted 7/28/14 1:37pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate (shoulder) was removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, July 28, and he is expected to take part in the team's first training camp practice later in the day. Tate missed part of the team's spring workouts with a shoulder injury and said his shoulder was 'just a little soreness' in June.
Huddle Up:  Tate's injury was never thought to be serious. He has a good opportunity to put up career-best numbers in Detroit's offense this season.

Shonn Greene - RB - Tennessee Titans Posted 7/28/14 1:34pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene needs to lose five to ten pounds during training camp, according to the coaching staff.
Huddle Up:  This isn't good news for a guy trying to win a starting job. Greene is coming off a year where he averaged 3.8 yards per carry and there have been reports that his roster spot in Tennessee may not be secure. All signs are pointing to rookie Bishop Sankey being the Titans top RB this season. Sankey currently carries an ADP of Round 5.

Frank Gore - RB - San Francisco 49ers Posted 7/28/14 1:34pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore is unlikely to play in the preseason this year. RBs Carlos Hyde and Jewel Hampton have both looked good so far during training camp. The injuries to RBs Kendall Hunter (knee) and LaMichael James (elbow) have left the team thin at the running back position. RB Marcus Lattimore isn't practicing yet due to physical limitations and not the mental side of his recovery from a significant knee injury in college.
Huddle Up:  With the 49ers thin at RB, it makes sense that the team doesn't want to risk injury to Gore. Hyde will get plenty of opportunities to shine this preseason and secure a job as the 49ers No. 2 and goal line back this season.

Ray Rice - RB - Baltimore Ravens Posted 7/28/14 10:50am et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice did not appeal his two-game suspension.
Huddle Up:  Ray Rice should thank his lucky stars the NFL is more concerned about performance enhancing drugs and DUIs than domestic violence. Bernard Pierce will get the bulk of the carries while Rice sits, and if Rice doesn't perform significantly better than he did last year he may return to a jobshare rather than the feature back workload he's been used to.

Chris Rainey - RB - Indianapolis Colts Posted 7/28/14 10:50am et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Updating an earlier report, the Indianapolis Colts released RB Chris Rainey for a violation of team rules.
Huddle Up:  With Vick Ballard out there was an opportunity for Rainey to carve out a roster spot behind (or alongside) Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw. Instead, he's looking for work.

Rishard Matthews - WR - Miami Dolphins Posted 7/28/14 10:50am et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Miami Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews stood out Sunday, July 27, with a series of catches that anointed him the unofficial star of the workout.
Huddle Up:  The Dolphins could use a little good news, especially in the passing game. Matthews will be battling for a complementary role in the Miami passing game, but with Bill Lazor at OC and Ryan Tannehill at quarterback there could be enough improvement for more than just Mike Wallace to be a fantasy factor.

Kyle Rudolph - TE - Minnesota Vikings Posted 7/27/14 11:33pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
The Minnesota Vikings have signed TE Kyle Rudolph to a five-year extension worth $36.5 million Sunday, July 27.
Huddle Up:  There are high fantasy hopes for Rudolph this season with the addition of new offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who has a track record of featuring tight ends (Jay Novacek, Antonio Gates, Jordan Cameron) in his offenses.

LaMichael James - RB - San Francisco 49ers Posted 7/27/14 11:33pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James (dislocated elbow) likely will miss the entire preseason but should be ready for the start of the regular season.
Huddle Up:  In the meantime, newcomers Carlos Hyde and/or Marcus Lattimore will have more of an opportunity to establish themselves in the Niners' RB rotation and that very likely could keep James' contributions to a minimum after getting only 44 total offensive touches in his first 2 seasons.

Lamar Miller - RB - Miami Dolphins Posted 7/27/14 11:33pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller will be used much like Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy was last season. That means he should see quite a few passes headed his way. He'll have to hold off Knowshon Moreno (knee), but Miller seems to be clearly in the lead in the backfield.
Huddle Up:  Miller had 100 fantasy points on 203 offensive touches, including 26 receptions, last season to finish 38th among all NFL RBs, and with Moreno sure to carve out a role once he gets healthy, it's hard to envision Miller getting that many more opportunities this fall.

Christine Michael - RB - Seattle Seahawks Posted 7/27/14 11:33pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael left practice early Sunday, July 27, after dinging his right shoulder. Head coach Pete Carroll said Michael should be able to return Tuesday, July 29.
Huddle Up:  Michael is a hot fantasy commodity growing even warmer as Marshawn Lynch's holdout continues, but injury issues could tap the brakes a little as the second-year RB doesn't exactly have a proven NFL track record (18 carries for 79 yards) to fall back on.

LaMichael James - RB - San Francisco 49ers Posted 7/27/14 8:43pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Updating an earlier report, San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James suffered a dislocated elbow in practice Sunday, July 27 and was carted off the field.
Huddle Up:  Just when it appeared James was in line for more work following the ACL tear suffered by fellow RB Kendall Hunter last week, the injury bug strikes again in the Niners' backfield. Unlike Hunter, though, James should be able to return to the field, but for now, it means more reps for second-round pick Carlos Hyde behind starter Frank Gore.

Scott Chandler - TE - Buffalo Bills Posted 7/27/14 8:43pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Buffalo Bills TE Scott Chandler suffered a groin injury Sunday, July 27. WR Kevin Elliott is suffering from concussion-like symptoms.
Huddle Up:  With backups Tony Moeaki (hamstring) and Chris Gragg (dehydration) already out, it leaves the Bills pretty thin at TE with Will Smith currently the only man standing. We don't yet know the severity of Chandler's injury, so keep an eye on this developing situation.

Geno Smith - QB - New York Jets Posted 7/27/14 2:36pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
New York Jets QB Geno Smith received 16 snaps with the first-team offense during practice Saturday, July 26, while QB Michael Vick received three snaps. Smith has received 42 starter reps in three practices while Vick has received 12 snaps.
Huddle Up:  Nothing unexpected here as it's going to be up to the newcomer Vick to outplay and unseat the second-year Smith this preseason. Smith will also hasten a change under center if he can't show he's cleaned up his decision-making after turning the ball over 26 times as a rookie.

Robert Meachem - WR - New Orleans Saints Posted 7/27/14 2:28pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
New Orleans Saints WR Robert Meachem (undisclosed) and Kenny Stills (quadriceps) are not participating in practice Sunday, July 27.
Huddle Up:  Details are sketchy, but there has been nothing to indicate that these are anything more than minor issues at this point. At the same time, though, it's opening the door for more opportunities for first-round pick Brandin Cooks.

Trent Richardson - RB - Indianapolis Colts Posted 7/27/14 2:28pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson has not been participating in training-camp practices because of a soft-tissue issue, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Pagano said the team is being careful with Richardson and want him to be 100 percent before he returns to the field.
Huddle Up:  With fellow RB Vick Ballard's season already over before it got started, the Colts are counting on a bounce-back season from Richardson more than ever and certainly aren't going to take the chance of aggravating a minor issue in the opening week of camp.

Bernard Pierce - RB - Baltimore Ravens Posted 7/27/14 2:28pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Updating previous reports, Baltimore Ravens RB Bernard Pierce left practice Saturday, July 26, because of an illness.
Huddle Up:  Repeating, it's an illness, not any sort of injury, for the RB who for now is slated to be the Ravens' starter the first 2 weeks of the season.

Tony Moeaki - TE - Buffalo Bills Posted 7/27/14 2:13pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Buffalo Bills TE Tony Moeaki (hamstring) will be out a significant amount of time with a hamstring injury. TE Chris Gragg (dehydration) is expected back by next week.
Huddle Up:  Moeaki can't seem to stay on the field -- he's already missed 33 of a possible 64 games so far in 4 pro seasons -- and it looks like starter Scott Chandler isn't going to have much competition for the time being.

Mike James - RB - Tampa Bay Buccaneers Posted 7/27/14 2:13pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Mike James has been working with the second- team offense. Bobby Rainey and rookie Charles Sims should still figure into the mix as well.
Huddle Up:  It's a bit surprising given that Rainey emerged as the main man last season after starter Doug Martin went down and Sims is the squad's third-round draft pick, but there's still 6 weeks and 4 preseason tilts until we get to the games that count -- giving the new coaching regime plenty of time to make depth-chart tweaks.

Jordy Nelson - WR - Green Bay Packers Posted 7/26/14 1:47pm et  Share this news item on Facebook!  Tweet this news item!
Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson signed a four-year, $39 million extension with $14.2 million guaranteed, according to a source.
Huddle Up:  The Packers wanted to keep at least some of their receiving corps intact for Aaron Rodgers after losing Donald Driver, Greg Jennings, and James Jones the past few seasons. With Nelson locked in, the Pack can turn their focus to free agent-to-be Randall Cobb.
