QJordan Hicks LB PHI (10) 18 hours ago
Hicks (hand) isn't expected to miss any part of training camp.
Hicks needed a minor operation to correct a hand injury the linebacker suffered on his honeymoon in late June. Although he won't miss any time, Hicks could be limited during training camp.
Ty Montgomery RB GB (8) 18 hours ago
Montgomery (ribs) should double his 77 rushing attempts from last season, ESPN's Mike Clay reports.
Clay did go on to say he wouldn't expect too much more than that, though, as fourth-round rookie Jamaal Williams should rotate in as a change-of-pace back in the mold of ex-Packer James Starks. Furthermore, Clay admitted fifth-round rookie Aaron Jones could threaten for work on third downs due to his impressive receiving acumen. While this looks to have the potential to turn into a dreaded committee situation, head coach Mike McCarthy has already gone out of his way to state that Montgomery remains the No. 1 runner in Green Bay. In turn, Montgomery should push for 200 total touches in his first full season as the starter after catching 34 passes during his 11 starts last year. Thankfully, the Stanford product is recovered from the rib injury he suffered in the NFC championship game, according to USA Today's Ryan Wood, so he should be entering training camp at or near 100 percent.
Aaron Jones RB GB (8) 19 hours ago
Jones could emerge as the team's third-down running back, ESPN's Mike Clay reports.
Though one would think that ex-wide receiver Ty Montgomery would be the team's preferred option on passing downs, the reality is that Montgomery is now the starter and will need to come off the field at times in order to stay fresh. While the Packers drafted three running backs in April's draft, Jones (5-foot-9, 208 pounds) is viewed as the pass-catching specialist of the bunch and may have the most favorable odds of carving out a regular role on offense with Montgomery set to handle early-down work.
QJohn Brown WR ARI (8) 20 hours ago
There's still "a little concern" about the potential for Brown's sickle-cell trait to be a problem moving forward, ESPN's Mike Clay reports.
Brown's condition is concerning because people with the sickle-cell trait are more likely to experience muscle breakdown when doing intense exercise, according to ESPN's Josh Weinfuss. The receiver was diagnosed with the condition in Week 7 of last season. While he only missed one game, Brown was clearly hampered in plenty of others and ultimately finished the year with career lows in nearly every receiving category. In February, a member of the Cardinals' brass suggested the team may have found a solution to Brown's issue. While they indeed may have discovered a way to keep it under control, Sunday's report reminds prospective fantasy owners that this sickle-cell trait could become a problem again in the future.
QJumal Rolle DB ARI (8) 21 hours ago
Rolle injured his hamstring in training camp Saturday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Rolle will be taken in for an MRI on Sunday to determine how bad of an injury it is. On the bright side, it seems he's recovered from the Achilles injury that shortened his 2016 campaign.
QElie Bouka DB ARI (8) 21 hours ago
Bouka injured his ankle during Saturday's training camp practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
The extent of Bouka's injury isn't clear. If it proves to be serious, placing him on the physically unable to perform list could be a possibility.
QDanny Trevathan LB CHI (9) 1 day ago
Trevathan (knee) could begin the regular season on the physically unable to perform list, which would keep him out for six games, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.
Trevathan ruptured the patellar tendon in his right knee during Week 12 last season. At the time of his injury, he ranked second on the team with 66 tackles. Even if he somehow is ready for the regular season, it might be best to take a wait-and-see approach when considering him in IDP league drafts, and if he goes undrafted, he's someone to keep an eye on during in-season waivers should he appear back to his previous form.
QZach Miller TE CHI (9) 1 day ago
Miller's (foot) roster spot will be entirely dependent upon his recovery from his recovery from the injury he suffered last season, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.
The Bears have plenty of options to replace Miller, should he be unable to return to full health. Not only does the team return Daniel Brown and Ben Braunecker, but they added Dion Sims in free agency before spending a second-round draft pick on Adam Shaheen. However, should Miller prove to be healthy, he should remain as the preferred option as Chicago's pas-catching tight end this season.
Ka'Deem Carey RB CHI (9) 1 day ago
Carey could be battling Jeremy Langford for a roster spot during training camp, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.
Carey was deactivated for the final two games of 2016, so the writing could be on the wall, especially after the team brought in Benny Cunningham and Tarik Cohen during the off season. That said, Carey ran for 3.9 yards per carry, opposed to 3.2 yards per tote for Langford, so Carey was better as a runner. Regardless, he'll not only need to beat out Langford, but he'll also need to move ahead of Cunningham and Cohen to have much fantasy relevance behind Jordan Howard.
QJeremy Langford RB CHI (9) 1 day ago
Langford (ankle) could be battling with Ka'Deem Carey for one roster spot, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.
After rushing for 3.2 yards per carry in 2016, Langford's performance is likely one of the main reasons the team brought in Benny Cunningham and Tarik Cohen in the offseason. Regardless, Langford could be battling for a roster spot, and he'll not only need to beat out Carey, but he'll need to overtake the two new additions to secure some fantasy value behind Jordan Howard.
