Peyton Hillis (ankle) remained out of Chiefs practice Wednesday.

Hillis was listed as doubtful before sitting out Sunday's loss, and there's been nothing to suggest he'll be ready to return for Week 5. We expect Shaun Draughn to back-up Jamaal Charles against the Ravens. Increasingly plodding and prone to injury, Hillis is an extremely low-upside own in fantasy leagues.

NFL suspended Cowboys OLB Rolando McClain 10 games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

McClain's tumultuous offseason gets worse. The Cowboys were steamed when the embattled linebacker skipped "voluntary" OTAs to spend time with his family in Alabama. McClain has been highly effective when on the field for the Cowboys the past two seasons, but also had his fair share of injuries, and the usual off-the-field drama. The Cowboys could decide they're over it, but considering their usual depth issues at linebacker, McClain will almost certainly keep his roster spot.

NFL suspended free agent QB Johnny Manziel four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

The news comes one day after Manziel claimed he was getting sober (after a few more days of partying). In truth, he's lucky the ban isn't longer. Of course, when/if Manziel attempts to resume his career, he'll be facing an additional suspension for violating the league's personal-conduct policy in his domestic violence case. Manziel's path back to the NFL — if he has one — will have to include a clear commitment to sobriety between now and next offseason. Then and only then will anyone be willing to roll the dice. Even if he gets his act together, it's quite possible Manziel never gets another NFL contract.

NFL suspended Jets DL Sheldon Richardson one game for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

The suspension stems from a traffic incident last summer in which Richardson allegedly drove as fast as 143 miles per hour and attempted to evade the officer who was pulling him over. With Richardson on the sidelines Week 1, free-agent addition Jarvis Jenkins should see plenty of snaps. Despite his off-field troubles, the Jets activated Richardson's fifth-year option in April.

Colts owner Jim Irsay said undrafted rookie RB Josh Ferguson has "a chance to be special."

The Colts reportedly considered Ferguson as early as the fourth round of April's draft, and he "made a distinct impression" during the offseason program. Indy does not have much of anything behind 33-year-old starter Frank Gore, so it is not crazy to think Ferguson carves out a role this year. The 5-foot-10, 198-pound back ran a 4.48 forty with a 10-foot broad jump at the Combine.

ESPN's Adam Schefter does not believe the Redskins and franchise-tagged QB Kirk Cousins will reach a long-term deal before the July 15 deadline.

Schefter thinks it will be "too difficult" to find the right value. "I think there would be teams willing to pay him if he were on the open market today more than Washington feels like it needs to pay him," Schefter said. "I think a team like the Cleveland Browns would’ve given him $20 million a year, maybe more." Already set to earn $19.95 million guaranteed this season, there is little reason for Cousins to take less than $20 million per year on a new deal, and the Redskins might want to see another season before shelling out that kind of cash. These deals tend to get done on deadline day, but it is certainly possible Cousins plays out the season under the tag.

Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson believes Cincinnati could use more two-back sets with Tyler Eifert's (ankle) availability in question.

With Marvin Jones and Mohamad Sanu leaving in free agency and Eifert hurt, the Bengals are desperate for receiving weapons. Free-agent addition Brandon LaFell and second-rounder Tyler Boyd will be asked to fill some of that void, but a bigger role for Giovani Bernard in the passing game should be part of the answer as well. He and Jeremy Hill could find themselves on the field together often this season.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot believes the "odds are very, very high" Robert Griffin III opens the season as the Browns' starting quarterback.

Cabot added coach Hue Jackson is "all in" on Griffin and is "riding him hard" during practice. Despite what has reportedly been a lackluster spring for Griffin, it sounds like the coaching staff is still squarely in his corner. It would be surprising if he is not the starter Week 1.

Updating a previous item, Andrew Luck's new six-year, $140 million contract makes him the highest-paid player in NFL history.

Prior to Luck signing, Joe Flacco paced the market at $22.1 million per year. Luck blows that out of the water. With the salary cap rising each of the past couple years and continuing to swell, it made it easy for the Colts to get this done. T.Y. Hilton is also under contract for the next five years through 2020.

Ex-NFL QB Johnny Manziel said he's going "completely sober" starting this Friday, July 1.

"No booze, eating right and training like crazy." Those were apparently Manziel's words to TMZ Sports. JFF also said he's determined to make an NFL comeback and ready to get back to work. Only after two more days of binge drinking and partying. We'd be shocked if Manziel plays in 2016.

Seahawks signed WR Doug Baldwin to a four-year, $46 million extension through 2020.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports it includes $24.25 million guaranteed. It makes Baldwin one of the highest-paid second-tier receivers in the league, and is a nice middle ground after Baldwin exploded for an unrepeatable 14 touchdowns in 2015. Baldwin, who turns 28 in September, is now locked up through his age-32 campaign. Baldwin is the Seahawks' clear-cut No. 1 wideout, but could face a run for his money from Tyler Lockett as early as this season.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Cardinals would like to hammer out an extension with contract-year DB Tyrann Mathieu before training camp.

The talks are complicated not just by the fact that Mathieu is recovering from a torn ACL, but also that he wants to be paid like a corner. The Cardinals are probably more inclined to offer safety money even though the majority of Mathieu's 2015 snaps came in the slot. Week 1 might be a more realistic deadline for a deal.
