John Jenkins DL NO 10 Hrs
Saints placed NT John Jenkins (pectoral) on the active/PUP list.
Jenkins underwent surgery on his pectorals over the offseason and missed all of spring. We'll consider him day-to-day for the time being. Jenkins is going to push Brodrick Bunkley for nose tackle spot in DC Rob Ryan's defense.
Mike Caussin TE BUF 10 Hrs
Redskins signed TE Mike Caussin.
Caussin, 27, was cut by the Bills five days ago. He tore his ACL in Week 16 of the 2011 season and missed all of 2012 before spending the entire 2013 season on I.R. with a hip injury. Caussin has five catches in six career games.
Louis Nix DL HOU 10 Hrs
Texans placed NT Louis Nix (undisclosed) and OLB Trevardo Williams on the active/PUP list.
Nix missed five games with a knee injury as a senior at Notre Dame last season, but it's unclear what the issue is at the moment. Coach Bill O'Brien refused to reveal details last month. Williams spent his entire rookie season on I.R. last year. His leg was "rolled up" in the preseason finale, but nothing was revealed after.
Brian Cushing LB HOU 10 Hrs
Texans placed ILB Brian Cushing (knee, leg) on the active/PUP list.
Cushing is recovering from a broken fibula and torn LCL, and should be ready within a couple weeks. He's missed 20 games over the past two seasons thanks to hard-luck injuries. Cushing's status for Week 1 isn't in question.
Eric Hagg DB DEN 11 Hrs
Broncos S Eric Hagg is retiring.
A 2011 seventh-round pick of the Browns, Hagg combined for 22 appearances across his first two NFL campaigns, but was out of the league last season. Rather than play out his remote shot at cracking the Broncos' 53-man roster, Hagg has decided to go out on his own terms. The Nebraska product is only 23.
Travis Kelce TE KC 11 Hrs
Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) is full go for the beginning of training camp.
Coming off a lost rookie season, Kelce is nine months removed from microfracture surgery. With the Chiefs' receiver corps perhaps the thinnest in the league, Kelce will get every opportunity to make an early impact on offense, provided he's healthy. He's worth monitoring as a TE2 in fantasy leagues.
Dominique Easley DL NE 11 Hrs
Patriots placed DL Dominique Easley (knee) on the active/NFI list.
Easley is in the final stages of his recovery from a torn ACL. He should be considered week to week. Barring a setback, Easley should see the field in the preseason. Joining him on the NFI list are RB Roy Finch, LB Deontae Skinner and OT Chris Martin.
Aaron Dobson WR NE 11 Hrs
Patriots placed WR Aaron Dobson (foot) on the active/PUP list.
Joining him there will be CB Alfonzo Dennard, WR Jeremy Gallon, DT Tommy Kelly and WR Matt Slater. Dobson had been optimistic he'd be ready for the start of camp, but isn't ready after sitting out the Patriots' entire offseason program. This being the Patriots, there's little hard info on Dobson's recovery, but we doubt his stay on the PUP list will be a long one. Dobson can be activated at any time.
Brennan Williams HOU 11 Hrs
Texans waived/failed physical OT Brennan Williams.
The No. 89 overall pick of last year's draft, Williams missed his entire rookie season as he recovered from microfracture surgery, and still isn't 100 percent. It's quite an admission of failure on the Texans' part, who have now waived each of their 2013 third-rounders. DE Sam Montgomery was cut loose last October. In theory, Williams' draft pedigree will earn him a look on waivers, but it's quite possible his knee is simply too much of an issue.
Mario Manningham WR NYG 11 Hrs
Mario Manningham (knee) will be "limited" for the start of Giants camp, but has avoided the active/PUP list.
The same is true for LT Will Beatty (leg) and OG John Jerry (knee). It means the trio is close to full participation, and should be ready for the preseason.
