Robert Griffin III vows to "fight through" his knee sprain and play in Week 15 at Cleveland.

"They told me that they felt like my ligaments feel good; it's just a matter of what the MRI says," Griffin said after the game. "They told me my ACL looked good, so I was feeling positive vibes from them. ... I'll still be able to run and do those things if it's just a really bad bruise, and then if it's anything else, like I told coach, I'll fight through it and I'll be playing next week." We wouldn't take that to the bank just yet, but it's a sign that RGIII will likely try to get at least one late-week practice in.

In an Instagram post, Le'Veon Bell declared he is "gonna win the appeal" of his four-game suspension.

The suspension stems from what Ian Rapoport described as "several" missed drug tests. Unless Bell has a legitimate reason for missing those tests, it is highly unlikely he wins the appeal. Still, he seems confident. "When I end up missin no games at all," Bell said, "[people] for sure gonna try to love me again." DeAngelo Williams will handle the vast majority of the running back work if (while) Bell is sidelined.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Seahawks will meet with disgruntled DE Michael Bennett's agent this week.

Bennett has been unhappy with his contract for quite some time, and he made waves again last week by telling The Huffington Post the Seahawks should "get rid of me" if they do not "think I'm valuable." Bennett still has two years left on a four-year, $32-million contract he signed in 2014. Seattle does not usually negotiate with players this far away from free agency, but they could make an exception considering how long this contract dispute has lingered. Coach Pete Carroll said the team is "gonna make an effort" to keep Bennett happy.

Vikings RT Phil Loadholt has decided to retire after seven seasons in the NFL.

Only 30, Loadholt is the next in an increasingly long line of players who have retired prematurely over the last two seasons. A second-round pick in 2009, Loadholt played his entire career with the Vikings. He missed all of last season with a torn Achilles' tendon, but he was expected to compete with Andre Smith for a starting spot at right tackle. Loadholt was forced to take a significant pay cut in March, so it is possible money plus injury concerns contributed to his decision. With Loadholt out the door, Smith is locked in at right tackle.

Seahawks signed GM John Schneider to a five-year extension through 2021.

ESPN's John Clayton reports the deal will place Schneider "among the highest-paid GMs in the NFL," and is expected to pay him around $3.75 million per year. Ozzie Newsome is currently the league's highest-paid GM. Schneider and Pete Carroll were both entering contract years in 2016; a Carroll extension is believed to be forthcoming. In April, Rotoworld's Patrick Daugherty ranked Schneider No. 3 among NFL GMs, behind only Bill Belichick and John Elway. Schneider has been able to mask mistakes (Matt Flynn, Percy Harvin, Jimmy Graham) with elite college-to-pro talent evaluation, plucking Russell Wilson and Tyler Lockett in the third round, Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor in the fifth, and Thomas Rawls in undrafted free agency, among many others. There isn't an NFC team with a brighter-looking present and future than Schneider's Seahawks.

Former Cardinals DT Darnell Dockett is retiring from football.

He will sign a one-day deal to retire with the Cardinals on Monday. 35-year-old Dockett spent the last two seasons out of football following an ACL tear. He will hang 'em up with 40.5 career sacks -- seventh most in Cardinals franchise history -- and three Pro Bowl appearances. In his prime, Dockett was one of the NFL's premier interior rushers. Dockett lacks Hall of Fame credentials, but he deserves a spot in the Cardinals' Ring of Honor.

Ameer Abdullah (shoulder) avoided the active/PUP list to begin Lions camp.

Players who aren't cleared to practice go on active/PUP. This means Abdullah has been cleared and should be all systems go following offseason shoulder surgery. Although Abdullah's rookie year was a disappointment from a fantasy standpoint, he did average 4.70 yards per carry in the Lions' final ten games and should see more volume as a sophomore. Concerns on Abdullah's ceiling stem from Theo Riddick's near-monopolization of running back receiving work and the Lions' insistence on using a "big back" to handle short-yardage and goal-line carries. Abdullah is a middle-round fantasy pick.

A league source told the Cincinnati Enquirer that Tyler Eifert's ankle rehab is "on schedule and progressing as planned."

What this means exactly for Eifert's return isn't clear, but it's better than hearing Eifert's recovery is behind schedule or not progressing as planned. The Cincy Enquirer says that "at the time of" Eifert's surgery on May 27 "the plan was for him to be ready for the Sept. 11 regular season opener in New York." Multiple reports since have stated Eifert is unlikely to be ready for Week 1. The Bengals may not know for sure until late August.

Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip surgeries) avoided the active/PUP list to begin training camp.

It's an indication that Pitta is indeed 100 percent or very close to it after appearing in just seven games since the end of the 2012 season. He'll be eligible to practice on Thursday. If Pitta is capable of becoming a contributor, the Ravens could field more two-tight end sets with him and Ben Watson on the field together. Maxx Williams and Crockett Gillmore would be the odd men out.

Chris Conley ran as the Chiefs' first-team X receiver this spring.

Jeremy Maclin is Kansas City's Z receiver, with Albert Wilson moving inside to the slot to replace Jason Avant. Wilson may still start in two-receiver sets, but it was clear late last season that the Chiefs wanted Conley more involved. He scored a touchdown in the team's Wild Card win over Houston and caught five passes in Kansas City's Divisional Round loss to the Patriots. A SPARQ freak at 6-foot-2, 213, Conley has some appeal in best-ball fantasy leagues.

Joe Flacco avoided the active/PUP list to begin training camp.

Just as expected. Flacco tore his ACL and MCL in Week 11 last year, but his recovery progressed ahead of schedule and he resumed throwing without restrictions after OTAs. "He looks 100 percent to me," Kamar Aiken observed earlier this month. "Looks the exact same." Flacco isn't a sexy fantasy pick, but he has a favorable early-season schedule and last year's Ravens led the NFL in pass attempts. Flacco is a sneaky bet to finish this year as a low-end QB1.
