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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
(7/25/2014 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
(7/25/2014 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
(7/25/2014 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
(7/25/2014 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.
