Stewart out with hamstring injury

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart will miss the first 1-2 weeks of training camp with a hamstring injury.  That's not a big deal by itself.  But hammies tend to be tricky.  And we're talking about a guy who's struggled staying healthy throughout his career.  Stewart has missed 17 games over the past 2 seasons.  He's still only 27 and was a big talent at one point.  But he's only a flier at the end of fantasy drafts now.

Tate on the PUP with shoulder issue

Lions WR Golden Tate will open training camp on the PUP, but you shouldn't worry much.  Tate told the Detroit Free Press that he suffered a minor shoulder injury during an "errant fall" in OTAs.  "Just a little soreness in my shoulder and I'm just doing what the doctors tell me to do and I'm trying to get better as fast as I can," Tate said at the time in May.  We're guessing he'll take the field soon, as the team can activate a player from the camp PUP at any time.  If Tate sits out more than a week of practices -- after skipping June OTAs -- we might start to get concerned.  Rookie WR T.J. Jones will also start camp on the PUP after getting his right shoulder scoped in June to fix a college injury.  He says his shoulder is "as healthy as can be."  We'll see what doctors say.  Jones could factor into the #3 WR battle if healthy.

Ansah on the PUP

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah will open training camp on the PUP as he continues to work back from last season's shoulder injury and torn biceps.  The move doesn't come as a surprise to Lions observers, but it's a reminder to fantasy football owners that Ansah has yet to prove he's 100%.  That has us tempering expectations on the former top 5 NFL Draft pick heading into his 2nd season.  Ansah presents exciting fantasy upside but has yet to shake the injury bug that traveled with him into the league.  Check our 2014 IDP rankings to see exactly where we're taking him.

Blackmon arrested for drug possession

Suspended Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon got arrested Wednesday night in Edmond, Okla., on marijuana possession charges, according to  Officers reportedly smelled pot and searched the car after stopping Blackmon for a traffic violation.  The league and Jaguars, of course, had yet to indicate when the troubled receiver might return from his existing suspension.  This incident certainly won't help his case.  Blackmon's career might be over at this point.  We're gonna go out on a limb and suggest that you don't draft him in 2014.

Ray Rice

Rice suspended 2 games

The NFL suspended Ravens RB Ray Rice for 2 games, according to The Baltimore Sun. Rice faced felony aggravated assault charges after an incident involving his then-girlfriend-now-wife was caught on tape. It’s his first known run-in with the law since entering the NFL, but we still expected the 27-year-old to draw a stronger punishment. Frankly, he should have. Instead, he’ll miss games against Cincinnati and Pittsburgh before returning to face Cleveland. This news should lead to Rice’s ADP creeping up from the early 6th round of drafts. If healthy, Bernard Pierce will see the majority of the touches while Rice is out, making him a short-term RB2/flex option.

Johnson cleared for start of camp

Jets RB Chris Johnson (knee) was cleared for the start of training camp and passed his conditioning test on Wednesday.  He underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in January and sat out spring practices.  "I'm pretty good," Johnson said of his knee. "I'm ready to do whatever they ask me to do."  The artist formerly known as CJ2K is the favorite to lead the Jets backfield in touches this year, but RB Chris Ivory might be more involved than most are expecting.  Our RB projections detail our expectations for both players.

Josh Gordon

Gordon will appeal suspension on August 1

Browns WR Josh Gordon will meet with league officials to appeal his 1-year suspension on August 1, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.  He doesn't have much of a chance of getting the ban reduced.  Since failing a drug test early in the offseason, Gordon has been ticketed for speeding and arrested for DWI.  Fantasy owners should continuing operating as if Gordon won't play at all this season.  We'll find out for sure in 8 days.

Roddy White

White gets 4-year extension

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Falcons have handed WR Roddy White a 4-year extension.  It tacks on to the final year of his previous deal, keeping White in Atlanta through the 2018 season.  It's a lengthy extension for a WR who turns 33 in November.  Although there's likely some kind of "out" clause for the team, the news is still a sign that the Falcons believe White has plenty of gas left in the tank.  Once he finally got healthy last year, he was a top 10 fantasy WR over the final 5 games.  White is a nice value at his 5th-round ADP.

Mathieu opens camp on PUP

Cardinals S Tyrann Mathieu will open training camp on the PUP because of the 2 knee ligaments he tore in early December of his rookie season.  The team can activate Mathieu at any point, but The Associated Press reports that there's no timetable for his return at this point.  We'd be wary of adding Mathieu to your IDP lineup coming off such a serious injury.

Von Miller

Miller cleared for camp

Dr. James Andrews has cleared Broncos LB Von Miller to take the field for the start of camp, according to The Denver Post.  GM John Elway said Miller won't take part in contact drills until the week of the 3rd preseason game in late August.  But the news is encouraging for a star player who tore his right ACL in the 2nd-to-last regular-season game.  Broncos CB Chris Harris, on the other hand, will start camp on the PUP thanks to his Jan. 12 ACL tear.  Both are key to the Denver D, though Miller's return should mean more to the unit's fantasy value.
