Eagles placed C Jason Kelce (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

A Tuesday scope revealed that Kelce will need his ACL repaired along with the MCL. He'll be out anywhere from 6-12 months. It's a major loss for the Eagles, as they'll now have to roll with inexperienced Dallas Reynolds and fringe talent Steve Vallos at the pivot spot. They were already playing without All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters, who tore his Achilles' tendon during the offseason.

Appearing on Sirius XM Radio, Ben Roethlisberger stated that Markus Wheaton will be the Steelers' No. 2 wide receiver this season and predicted Wheaton will be Pittsburgh's "breakout player."

This should deal a blow to Martavis Bryant's skyrocketing ADP. "I think Markus Wheaton is our breakout player of the year," said Ben. "I want that. I want him to have that pressure. Because when we're in two wide receivers, he's our No. 2. And we're asking him to play outside. And we go three wide receivers, we ask him to move inside." Bryant's elbow procedure won't help his chances of earning a consistent role in two-wide receiver sets. Wheaton is coming off a highly disappointing 2014 campaign, but will be worth a late-round flier in all fantasy formats if he indeed keeps a full-time role in one of the NFL's premier offenses.

Sam Bradford (knee) has been fully cleared for 11-on-11 drills.

Bradford is finally ready to let it rip after being limited at OTAs and minicamp. A recent independent study conducted by the Eagles showed Bradford has about a 10-to-12 percent chance of re-injuring his ACL, though coach Chip Kelly won't be putting any restrictions on his new franchise QB. Bradford shed his knee brace Sunday, another sign that he's back to 100 percent. Expect Bradford to begin creeping up fantasy draft boards in short order.

Panthers waived/injured WR Stephen Hill.

Hill injured his right knee at Saturday's practice and has since been diagnosed with a torn ACL. Paul Browning will take Hill's spot on the active roster. The 24-year-old has never logged more than 24 catches in a season and wouldn't have been much of a factor even if he had stayed healthy.

Terrelle Pryor was sprinkled in with the first-team offense at Browns camp on Sunday.

It's a good sign. Whereas many players in Pryor's position-conversion circumstance might linger with the third-team offense, Pryor is already making a push for meaningful practice reps. Pryor has drawn rave reviews at wide receiver early on, with both Dwayne Bowe and Joe Haden noting how "easy" Pryor has made the position switch look. Pryor is worth stashing in deeper Dynasty leagues. The Browns' shortage of wide receiver talent could result in substantial playing time for Pryor out wide in 2015. At 6-foot-5, 232, Pryor would make for an inviting red-zone presence. He's also as tough as nails.

Seahawks signed MLB Bobby Wagner to a four-year, $43 million extension through 2019.

With so much money now committed to players at the top of their roster, GM John Schneider is going to have to stay hot in upcoming drafts. Wagner was entering a contract year, and might have been a franchise-tag candidate in 2016. The 25-year-old is a three-down Mike 'backer with 100-plus tackles in three straight seasons. Despite missing five games in which he was unable to compile plus grades, Wagner earned a top-five rating from Pro Football Focus among inside linebackers in 2014. He also has nine career sacks and five interceptions.

Second-year RB Juwan Thompson is reportedly challenging for the Broncos' No. 2 running back job.

Thompson averaged 5.0 yards on 54 carries as an undrafted rookie out of Duke last season, scoring three touchdowns. He's reportedly putting heat on Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman behind C.J. Anderson. "Forty (Thompson's number) looked unbelievable today," coach Gary Kubiak said after Saturday's practice. "He's built for what we do." It's time to add Thompson in all Dynasty leagues and put him on the re-draft sleeper radar.

Saints second-year WR Brandon Coleman has "consistently looked good" early in camp, and is reportedly "separating himself from the pack."

The "pack" consists of Seantavius Jones, Josh Morgan, Joe Morgan, and others. A mammoth target at 6-foot-6, 225, Coleman has been likened to Marques Colston by coach Sean Payton. Colston is being eased into training camp, so Coleman has handled some first-team reps. We'll be keeping an eye on Coleman and whether he's able to challenge Nick Toon for the No. 3 receiver job.

NFL.com's Lance Zierlein suggests the Texans' quarterback battle "might be over sooner than you think."

A Houston-area media member, Zierlein is convinced Brian Hoyer will be the Week 1 starter. Zierlein later cited Ryan Mallett's lack of accuracy as his likely downfall. Texans fans are oddly obsessed with Mallett getting the nod, but Mallett has been outplayed by Hoyer since the early spring, and was traded away by Bill Belichick for a conditional seventh-round pick last year. We still anticipate both sub-par quarterbacks making 2015 starts.
Aug 1 - 8:20 PM

Steelers acquired CB Brandon Boykin from the Eagles in exchange for a conditional fifth-round pick in the 2016 draft.

The pick can elevate to a fourth-rounder based on Boykin's 2015 playing time. One of the top slot corners in the league, Boykin is an immediate upgrade to a Pittsburgh secondary that ranked 27th against the pass last year. Boykin was undervalued by Chip Kelly for his lack of size, but still graded as a top-25 corner by PFF last season. He's essentially a one-year rental for the Steelers. Boykin is owed $1.542 million in the final year of his contract. He turned 25 early last month.
Aug 1 - 8:02 PM

Martavis Bryant will undergo a minor procedure for an elbow infection, and is expected to miss 7-10 days of training camp.

Although this clearly isn't a long-term worry, it is something of a concern for Bryant's re-draft fantasy outlook. He's trying to hold off Markus Wheaton to start in two-receiver sets after playing less than a third of Pittsburgh's offensive snaps as a rookie. Bryant is expected to be held out of the Steelers' preseason opener. We'll monitor Bryant's status closely until he returns.
Aug 1 - 6:57 PM

Jets rookie WR Devin Smith (ribs) is expected to be sidelined 4-6 weeks.

He'll miss all of training camp and the preseason. Smith is dealing with a punctured lung in addition to broken ribs, putting his Week 1 status in serious question. He'll be behind Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, and Jeremy Kerley when he returns, making Smith an unlikely early-season contributor.
