Coach John Harbaugh says Brent Urban will get a MRI on his knee Wednesday. 

Urban was the Ravens fourth-round selection in the 2014 draft. He wasn't supposed to start for them this year, but he was definitely going to work his way into some sort of a rotation. The knee issue is a bummer and we'll await the MRI results before assessing a damage report.

Bills have signed RB Fred Jackson to a one-year contract extension.

He's never going away, people. Never. All you C.J. Spiller owners just dying for F-Jax's demise/retirement are going to have to continue waiting. He's like a Timex watch and the Energizer bunny all rolled up into one. According to sources, the deal is for $2.6M with $1M additional in incentives. Not bad for a running back who is currently 33-years old.

Coach Jay Gruden said OL Tyler Polumbus missed Wednesday's practice for personal reasons.

No light shed on what those personal reasons might be; probably because they're personal. Just consider Polumbus day-to-day.

Pierre Garcon (hamstring) is being rested by the team Wednesday, coach Jay Gruden said. 

The Redskin shave no reason to rush Garcon back onto the field at this point. He is going to remain a focal point of the offensive attack and pushing him with a hamstring injury could do more damage in the long term than anything else. He's fine for the season. You just have to endure a little coddling here.

Patriots WR Aaron Dobson (stress fracture) didn't begin running until July; has no timetable to return.

Dobson delayed his surgery nearly two months and finally went under the knife in March. While he should remain a fairly prominent piece in the passing game this year, the fact that he will be absent for so much of the offseason program could hinder his development.

DT Jesse Williams was carted off the field Wednesday.

The Seahawks selected Williams in the fifth round of the 2013 draft and his stock had slipped them because of injuries. Obviously two years down the road, things are unrelated, but it's a history he can't escape. The Seahawks will update the media soon on the nature and severity of the injury so consider him just day-to-day for now.

Tony Romo will practice on Wednesday.

Romo was given the day off Tuesday to rest as he had been a fairly active participant over the weekend. Considering he is still in the latter stages of his recovery from back surgery, you can expect the Cowboys to coddle him early and then work him hard towards the end of camp. Given his weapons in Dallas, he remains a top-10 fantasy option.

Dez Bryant unlikely to land a new contract before the start of the season.

Bryant is at the tail-end of a five-year, $11.811 million deal and is set to be a free agent at the end of this season. Obviously the Cowboys would have wanted to get an extension done prior to the start of the season but Bryant's demand may just be too high right now. It's a risk letting him walk at the end of the year, but he hasn't been without his fair share of injuries and problems as well, so the risk goes both ways.

NFL decision on Aldon Smith's possible discipline could be coming soon.

The NFL really needs to step up here again and drop the hammer down on Smith. It's the only way he's going to learn. NFL players have long gotten away with degenerate behavior without repercussions and it's time to put an end to it. With Smiths' problems with drugs and alcohol and the steady presence of gun play that has been prominent with him, the NFL should suspend him and help set an example.
