Foster said the surgery he underwent Nov. 13 to fix a herniated disc wasn't as major as it sounded. "That's why I rebounded so quickly. I also worked my ass off. I'm expecting to do bigger things and bounce back."

Foster remains a high-risk/high-reward running back option, so his time atop the heap in fantasy drafts continues to rapidly fade. He remains the primary option for the Texans this season, but the team has also brought in former Giants running back Andre Brown to back him up. Brown, unfortunately, has been a known touchdown vulture so Foster will likely lose a number of goal -line runs again.ANALYST: Howard Bender

David Nelson, Greg Little, and Santonio Holmes worked out for the Bengals Thursday.

The Bengals are trying to find a No. 3 receiver behind A.J. Green and Brandon Tate. They're working out a trio of receivers whose best days are behind them. Nelson (6 games), Little (6) and Holmes (9) saw very little action last year. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Michael Pineda is dealing with a forearm muscle strain. It's not considered serious at this time. He's been scratched from Thursday's start.

It doesn't look to be serious right now, but with Pineda's history of arm injury--missing all of 2013 and 2014--there is plenty of reason for concern. Pineda has been scratched from tonight's start, and Bryan Mitchell will start in his place as part of a bullpen game. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

A judge in Texas has granted a motion by Adrian Peterson's attorney to lift his probation early.

Looks like Peterson can finally get back to focusing exclusively on producing for the Vikings. Peterson will be playing 2015 with a huge chip on his shoulder, trying to prove he is still an elite running back who can get it done. He is in great shape and it looks like he is fully prepared to handle another big workload after sitting out all but one game last year. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Matt Boyd has been traded to Detroit as part of a deal that brings David Price to Toronto.

It looks like Boyd is the top prospect in this deal. The young lefty, 24, has put up great numbers this year, owning a 9-2 record with a 1.68 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 107:24 K/BB ratio across 112 2/3 innings between Double-A and Triple-A. Boyd may end up getting some time in the majors this year with September call ups, but it's more likely the Tigers will wait until next year to get his feet wet in the bigs.  Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Cowboys RB Darren McFadden will start training camp on the PUP list. He has a hamstring injury.

McFadden being hurt isn't exactly shocking news as the running back has a long injury history. In 2014, he "enjoyed" his first career full 16-game season--even playing in every game, McFadden only registered 534 yards and two touchdowns. Some might think that the new scenery in Dallas will see him reach a resurgence, but it's highly unlikely (even if he does stay healthy). If he is going to be drafted, he should be taken in one of the last rounds as a low risk pick to stash on your bench in case he does end up shocking people. But Joseph Randle is a much more valuable back and should be taken way ahead of McFadden. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

The Tigers will get Daniel Norris in the David Price trade.

Norris will headline the package of prospects headed to the Tigers in exchange for David Price. He will likely stay in Triple-A for the time being where he holds a 4.27 ERA with a 78:41 K:BB over 90 2/33 innings. He did get five starts with the Jays this season and posted a 3.86 ERA with an 18:12 K:BB over 23 1/3 innings. Considered one of the top prospects in the Jays system, Norris should fare well for the Tigers now that he doesn't have to worry that every ball that hits a bat will be sent into the upper deck. Analysis: Howard Bender

Bears coach John Fox refused to elaborate on what is wrong with Kevin White's shin, calling him day-to-day, saying it's not long term.

Fox will keep things under wraps for now and there's little anyone else can do about that. Consider White day-to-day and hope that Fox' secrecy has only to do with him being truculent with the media and not a worse issue with the rookie's leg. Analysis: Howard Bender

The Blue Jays have reportedly acquired David Price from the Tigers.

It looks like the deal is happening, but not many more than Jays fans are pumped up about this move. As was reported previously when news of the deal was released, "Sure, he'd see incredible run support, but he'll learn hard and fast that he wants to start on the road and not home. The Rogers Centre is a launching pad and with Price's diminishing ground ball rate, he's going to have a tougher time keeping the ball in the yard than he did at Comerica or the Trop in Tampa. No word as to what the trade details are, but this is going to hurt the southpaw's overall value." Analysis: Howard Bender

Todd Frazier is not in the Reds starting lineup Thursday.

Frazier hasn't had a game off since April 24, so the Reds will give him the day here against Jeff Locke. He needed a day of rest, but you would have liked to have seen him out there considering he is 9-for-20 (.450_ with two home runs against the southpaw. Ivan DeJesus will handle the work at third base Thursday. Analysis: Howard Bender

Panthers General Manager says he has spoken to Stephen Hill and the team will let is citation for drug paraphernalia go through the legal process.

Translation: If the law doesn't burn you, neither will we. It's just a misdemeanor citation and one that only bears attention if the team believes Hill is a problem/bad influence on the team. If the legal system sweeps it under the rug, the Panthers seem content with doing the same. Hill is still a long shot to even make the 53-man roster. Analysis: Howard Bender

When asked about the talents of Marqise Lee, Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said, "I don't have a doubt in Marqise. I really like what I've seen in him."

Lee missed most of mini-camp with a knee issue but has been cleared for practice and is expected to be a full-participant for training camp. Lee is expected to play a big role in the passing game and should work opposite Allen Robinson most of the time with Allen Hurns being the third wideout in three-receiver sets. His value will likely be at its best in standard leagues, not PPR. Analysis: Howard Bender

Casey Walker is on the PUP list (knee tendinitis) , and did not practice Thursday.

Walker continues to struggle with his knee issues and will be hampered in his competition for a depth role on the Ravens defensive line. No one in IDP leagues should own him. Analysis: Howard Bender

Blue Jays are closing in on David Price, according to league sources.

While Price is considered an elite lefty, a move to Toronto would not be good for him. Sure, he'd see incredible run support, but he'll learn hard and fast that he wants to start on the road and not home. The Rogers Centre is a launching pad and with Price's diminishing ground ball rate, he's going to have a tougher time keeping the ball in the yard than he did at Comerica or the Trop in Tampa. No word as to what the trade details are, but this is going to hurt the southpaw's overall value. Analysis: Howard Bender

Jaguars say DE Chris Clemons did not report to training camp because he is dealing with personal issues.

No word as to what the situation is for Clemons, but he likely has the permission of the team. This is not a hold-out situation. Expect him to join the Jaguars within a few days. Analysis: Howard Bender
