DeMarcus Lawrence's appeal on his four-game suspension has been denied.

Lawrence was suspended for violating the leagues substance abuse policy after he tested positive for amphetamines. Lawrence lead the Cowboys defense with eight sacks last season and will be a tough loss for their defense to begin the season.

Michael Campanaro has completely recovered from his calf injury.

Muscle injuries are nothing new for the wideout as he has dealt with several of them since being drafted in 2014. The Ravens however, love his abilities in the slot and return game when he is indeed on the field for them. He has said in the past this offseason that he is motivated coming into the 2016 season to prove that he belongs in the deep wide receiver core that Baltimore has. If you are in a league that counts return yards, he is worth a look as a flier.

Danny Woodhead (ankle) is expected to be ready for training camp.

The shifty third-down back injured said ankle on the second-to-last day of OTAs with the Chargers but was able to walk off under his own power on the sprained joint. The fact that he will be ready for training camp is good news, as supposed lead back, Melvin Gordon, will still be coming back from micro fracture surgery on his foot. He is a dangerous weapon out of the backfield for San Diego and should be a target as flex play in a PPR league this season.

Rolando McClain has been suspended 10 games for violating NFL substance-abuse policy.

Rolando McClain has never been able to stay on the field since coming into the NFL and this upcoming season is no different. Just like last year, he'll start the season on suspension, except this season is 10 games, not four. The Cowboys were relying on McClain in the middle of their defense this year, as his loss will hurt them mightily.

Browns waived QB Connor Shaw.

The Browns have a dilemma at the top of their quarterback depth chart and Shaw wasn't part of it. Between Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown, the team will have a true completion in camp. Shaw will look to catch on elsewhere and will likely end up on a practice squad somewhere.

Johnny Manziel will be suspended the first 4 games of the 2016 season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Is anything really news regarding Manziel at this point? For this infraction, if the troubled young quarterback does land with an NFL team for the upcoming season, he would have to sit the first four weeks. However, this suspension would not carry over to 2017.

Sheldon Richardson has been suspended for the season opener for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Richardson pleaded guilty to a charge of resisting arrest in January after he led police on a chase in which he was clocked at driving 143 mph last summer. The Pro-Bowl defensive lineman will be forced to miss practices in the week leading up to the Jets' opener as well as the game itself.

Colts signed QB Andrew Luck to a contract extension through the 2021 season.

The numbers have yet to come out, but the former #1 overall pick in 2012 has signed a five year extension that will keep him in Indianapolis through 2021. After a spectacular 2014 season where he completed 380 passes for 4761 yards and a league leading 40 touchdowns, Luck played in just seven games last year while battling a lacerated kidney and a partially torn abdominal muscle. He should continue to be a very productive quarterback for the Colts for the foreseeable future.
