Jared Cook Headshot

Jared Cook could be on track to return by the second week of preseason following foot surgery in June.

Cook has maintained all along his foot injury is not a big deal, and that would indeed be the case if he missed just one preseason game. The Packers have an extra preseason game since they are playing in the Hall of Fame game, so Cook could miss one game and still have a full preseason. Cook will be playing with an above-average quarterback for the first time in his career this season, and while it will be difficult to trust him initially, his upside is huge.

Will Campbell Headshot

The Titans have signed offensive lineman Will Campbell.

Campbell was drafted in the sixth round by the Jets in 2013 after playing four years as a defensive lineman at Michigan. Campbell has never played in an NFL game, and is a longshot to do so this season.

Nigel Bradham Headshot

Nigel Bradham has been arrested after an alleged battery of hotel worker.

Apparently you do not want to provide slow service to Bradham, as that supposedly led to his punching a hotel worker in the face last week. He did turn himself in, and was charged with aggravated assault. The team has released a statement that it is aware of the situation, but did not comment further. This will play out over the next several weeks, if not months.

Russell Wilson Headshot

Seahawks have agreed on a new contract with head coach Pete Carroll that will keep him with the team through 2019.

Carroll has had an obviously successful run as the Seahawk head coach. The team is wise to lock him up and avoid any controversy about his future as the leader of Seattle's football team.

Justin Houston Headshot

According to Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, Justin Houston has been ruled out of the team's training camp.

Houston had ACL surgery in February, and there is no set timetable for his return to action. It does not sound as though he will be a training camp participant, though, and is more likely to be activated during the season. He is someone to put on your radar in IDP leagues, and a player to grab off the wire once he is activated.

Kurt Coleman Headshot

According to league sources the Panthers and Kurt Coleman have reached an agreement on a three-year contract extension.

Coleman is a big tackle, big play safety who occasionally gets beat badly in the secondary for the Panthers. The team can overlook his occasional lapses on defense dued to the production he provides. At 27, he has good years ahead of him, and the Panthers are wise to lock him up for the near future.

Vincent Brown Headshot

Saints have placed VIcent Brown on injured reserve.

He will begin the season on the injured reserve/PUP list. The five-year veteran was signed to provide some experienced depth following the release of Marcus Colston. Even supposing he is activated for the beginning of the season, do not expect much fantasy production as he has several younger WRs in front of him on the depth chart, including Brandin Cooks, Willie Snead and Brandon Coleman. Not to mention rookie Michael Thomas, who has looked good in OTAs.

Colin Kaepernick Headshot

Colin Kaepernick has been given medical clearance to begin training camp.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has received clearance from the Colorado doctor that performed his shoulder surgery in November. Although he obtained this, he still needs clearance from the 49ers training staff to partake in the beginning of camp which starts Sunday. In a two month span Kaepernick underwent procedures to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder, and a ligament tear in his right thumb, as well a scope on his left knee.

Gary Barnidge Headshot

Gary Barnidge could be limited at the start of training camp, despite passing his physical following hernia surgery in June.

Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge could still be limited at the start of training camp. Barnidge who underwent surgery for a sports hernia, was cleared to play, and passed his physical, so this is stricty to take it slow, and make sure nothing is re-injured or aggravated.

Tyler Varga Headshot

Tyler Varga is expected to retire after being replaced on the reserve/retired list by the Colts.

Indianapolis Colts then rookie, Tyler Vargas suffered a concussion in Week three last season that carried with it symptoms he experiences for several months after. He missed the rest of the 2015 season, after being placed on the injured reserve list. He then returned this off season seemingly looking forward to returning to work. After being placed on the reserve/did not report list, Vargas filled out the appropriate paperwork, and was moved to the reserve/retired list.
