Fantasy Player Updates & News

Melvin Ingram has reportedly lost 20 pounds this offseason.

The "greatest shape of his life" stories are starting early this summer. Losing 20 pounds probably won't hurt Ingram's game, but expecting a drastically better performance is probably a mistake. The Chargers defense has a chance to be pretty good next season, but they should not be drafted in most fantasy leagues. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Antonio Smith may sit out practice this week.

Smith is the subject of a child abuse investigation in Texas. The case has been dragging on for some time now, with the DA sifting through the report from the Fort Bend County Sheriff since February. Even if the case is ultimately dropped by the prosecutor, Smith could still face discipline from the league as part of its effort to improve its public image, as part of the personal conduct policy under the CBA between the players union and the league. Analysis: Ivar G.

Tom Brady's appeal will not be heard by Wednesday, according to the Associated Press.

What is the rush? Most accept the idea that Brady will serve some sort of suspension, whether it gets reduced on appeal or not. Get ready for back-up QB Jimmy Garoppolo to be under center when the defending champs take the field to open the 2015 season. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Bears have released DL Ray McDonald.

As reported earlier Ray McDonald was arrested on Domestic Violance charges again, the third time in 9 months. The Bears wasted no time cutting ties with the newly acquired defensive end. One teammate of McDonald's on the Bears was happy with the release tweeting out "Good Riddance" @Ky1eLong. Analysis: Matt Selz

Broncos cornerback Tevrin Brandon sustained minor injuries when he was stuck by a car in Belmar, New Jersey on Sunday morning, the team confirmed.

According to NJ.com, which first reported the accident, Brandon was crossing the intersection of Highways 71 and 35 when he was struck by what police believe was a black Ford F-150 truck. The truck fled the scene. He was signed to a futures contract in January. Brandon played in the FXFL with the Brooklyn Bolts last season before agreeing to a deal with the Broncos. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Ray McDonald has been arrested again on a domestic violence charge, two San Jose police sources told NBC Bay Area on Monday.

Ray McDonald has now been accused of violence against women three times in the last nine months. We do not know all of the details but there are also reports of child endangerment as well. This is the third time McDonald has been accused of violence against women in the last nine months. If you remember McDonald had previously escaped discipline from both the police and the NFL on the first two incidents, one of which was an alleged rape that occurred during a party and another alleged domestic incident of a pregnant woman. The former 49ers defensive end signed a one-year contract with the Bears for $1.05 million.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Ravens' head coach John Harbaugh said DE Brent Urban (knee) appears to be 100 percent healthy.

Urban will try to participate in OTAs, but if he feels any sort of a twinge, they'll hold him out until minicamp opens. Urban will compete for a reserve role on the Ravens' defensive line. Analysis: Howard Bender

It doesn't appear that Antone Smith (leg) will be cleared by the time organized team activities begin Tuesday.

Smith was hoping to get some work in during OTAs, but without full medical clearance he's going to have to remain on the sidelines. He should be ready by minicamp and is a near-lock to be in training camp. The real question will be what kind of a role will he have with Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman garnering most of the backfield attention. Analysis: Howard Bender

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Kapron Lewis-Moore (Achilles) is close to 100 percent healthy and could be a full-go during organized team activities.

Even if Lewis-Moore isn't ready for OTAs, he should be ready by minicamp. He's dealt with major injuries over the last two seasons, so as he mends, he'll get a chance to compete for a reserve role. Analysis: Howard Bender

Adrian Peterson won’t be at Vikings organized team activities when they begin Tuesday, a source told the Pioneer Press on Sunday.

AP reportedly won't get $250,000 if he skips more than 90-percent of OTA's, but that amount is likely a hit that wont affect him too much, considering his enormous salary and wealth. Take this as a sign that Peterson is hell-bent against playing for the Vikes, a team that did not stand by him during his trying time.  Analysis: Dom Murtha
