NFL and NFLPA will not reach an agreement on a drug policy Sunday. They are hoping for an agreement early this week.

With that said, Wes Welker will not be active for Week 2, so those in need of wide receiver help will want to turn to another alternative.

NFLPA isn't yet confirming the names of players who will be clear to return to action, but source says it's in the range of 20.

Of the most notable players are Wes Wlker and possibly Patriots cornback Brandon Browner. Josh Gordon is likely not going to be back until week 10 at the soonest, but we'll know more as details come out.

NFL players have approved the terms of the new drug policy agreement with the NFL.

While details haven't been completely released, it's looking like previously suspended players such as Welker will be eligible to return this weekend. On the other hand, Josh Gordon will likely be suspended until Week 10, but it's impossible to know the immediate futures of any of these players until the NFL releases more specifics.

The NFL and NFLPA are hoping to reach an agreement by Thursday evening which will finalize a new drug policy and potentially overturn recent suspensions.

Ugh. Anyone else bored with this already? Probably everyone that doesn't own Josh Gordon. We'll await word, but the idea of morons like Pacman Jones, Kenny Britt and Justin Blackmon all getting a chance to sue the NFL just makes it all sound so ridiculous.

NFL Players Association conducted a conference call with its 32 player reps Tuesday night after receiving a drug-policy proposal from the NFL, and it ended without a vote.

This is going to be a fairly long and drawn out process. Both the league and the players have so much ground to cover. But for those of you holding out hope that Josh Gordon is going to be back at some point this season, keep in mind that, according to NFL sources, the league has been put on notice that if Gordon's suspension is reduced or rescinded, any player who was fined or suspended after the 2011 CBA was implemented is expected to sue the league. The NFL most certainly does not want that.

NFL sources say that if Josh Gordon and Wes Welker have their suspensions reduced or rescinded, everyone dating back to new Collective Bargaining Agreement in 2011 will fight for revised suspensions and fine reductions, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

This is all just noise until something happens. I think we all should just sit back and wait until a ruling actually happens before we start running to the waiver wires to grab up Josh Gordon and other suspended players.

NFL drug policy negotiations are expected to resume on Monday.

There is a lot riding on these negotiations as it could result in the suspensions of several key fantasy players including Josh Gordon and Wes Welker being reinstated.

The NFL has announced a six-game ban for first time domestic abuse offender and a lifetime ban for second time offenses.

Roger Goodell sent out an official release to teams regarding stricter rules on Domestic Abuse offenders. In the release Goodell says " I didn't get it right" when referring to the two game suspension he gave Ray Rice and the national outcry that followed most likely caused the stricter policy that has been implemented.

Jake Ballard has announces his retirement from the NFL.

Ballard released a statement saying, I love this game and have put my heart and soul into it for as long as I can remember. After sustaining a serious knee injury while playing for the New York Giants in the Super Bowl, my body never felt the same. Having a quality of life after football is very important to me and I have witnessed it taken away from others. Obviously a tough decision but he was thinking about his future.
