Ravens fired OC Cam Cameron.

It's rare that a coordinator gets fired when his team has a 9-4 record, but Cameron has been on thin ice for the better part of two seasons thanks to predictable play-calling, spats with Joe Flacco and vanilla schemes. The Ravens rank just 18th in total offense this season after a 15th-place finish last year. Cameron, 51, will be replaced by ex-Colts boss and current quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell. The news is music to the ears of Ray Rice, who has strangely fallen to the back burner far too many times this season. Rice has been given 13 carries or fewer in three of the last seven games.

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Clifton Brown reports Kamar Aiken is the Ravens' No. 2 receiver heading into camp.

In a show of how confusing the receiver situation is in Baltimore, ESPN's Jamison Hensley listed Mike Wallace as the No. 2 receiver on Thursday. Steve Smith Sr. is the consensus No. 1, but that assumes he is healthy coming off an Achilles' tear at age 37. It is likely someone in the Ravens' receiving corps returns solid fantasy value this season, but it is basically impossible to pick who that will be at this point.

Dan Durkin of the Chicago Athletic agrees with the notion that the Bears will use a committee at running back this season.

One of the better football analysts in Chicago, Durkin notes that a John Fox team has only once had a running back log 60 percent of the carries, and fifth-round power back Jordan Howard "closely resembles the physical profile Fox looks for at the position." Durkin anticipates Jeremy Langford opening the season atop the depth chart, but foresees the Bears "(riding) the hot hand on game day."

Mike Leslie of WFAA Channel 8 in Dallas reports Ezekiel Elliott can prove his innocence against his assault accuser.

Elliott reportedly "has messages saved on his phone proving his ex-girlfriend is trying to set him up." Four witnesses dispute the assault ever took place, while TMZ released a 9-1-1 call of Elliott's accuser, Tiffany Thompson, who sounded quite calm and collected on the phone. Thompson accused Elliott of beating her for a week straight. The Cowboys do not believe the woman's claims.

CSN Bay Area's Scott Bair reports the Raiders "certainly hope" fifth-round RB DeAndre Washington wins a role in camp.

The most likely role for the Texas Tech product is on passing downs, but he will have to prove he can handle himself in pass protection to win the job. Washington could also take away some of the early-down work from Latavius Murray, who the Raiders have publically expressed frustration with all offseason. Washington should be given every shot to earn a role. Whether the fifth-round rookie takes advantage will be a story to watch throughout camp.

According to the police report, four people who witnessed the incident between Tiffany Thompson and Ezekiel Elliott disputed Thompson's assault claims.

One of the witnesses was in the driver's seat of the car where the assault was alleged to have taken place. The other three witnesses "observed the entire interaction" from the parking lot. Elliott has not been charged with any crimes, and police referred Thompson to the Prosecutor's Office due to conflicting statements between her and the witnesses. The Cowboys have said they do not believe Elliott did anything wrong. The league is looking into the incident.

According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune's Matt Vensel, the additions of Laquon Treadwell and Moritz Bohringer pose the "biggest threat" to Charles Johnson's roster spot.

In the same breath, Vensel also noted Johnson stood out at OTAs and minicamp as the starting split end opposite flanker Stefon Diggs. Johnson will have to hold off rookie Treadwell for the gig, but if he doesn't, Johnson offers no special teams value, and the Vikings would have to maybe decide between he and Bohringer. Cordarrelle Patterson and Adam Thielen are special teams mainstays.

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell is facing a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Pittsburgh radio personality Mark Madden was first on this over a month ago, and the rumor appears to be true. Madden received word that Bell skipped a drug test, which in the eyes of the NFL is the same as failing a test. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Bell skipped "drug tests," plural. Bell will obviously appeal it, but it sounds like he's not going to be available the first month of the season. Knock him down several pegs in the fantasy rankings, as he's now clearly behind David Johnson, Todd Gurley, Adrian Peterson, and Ezekiel Elliott. Look for DeAngelo Williams to do the heavy lifting in September, with Antonio Brown becoming even more of the focal point of the offense.

NFL.com's Mike Garafolo reports J.J. Watt's (back surgery) recovery could take up to 10 weeks.

Watt underwent surgery to repair a herniated disc on Wednesday. As is often the case with injury timelines, Watt's has gone from overly optimistic to more concerning in only a matter of hours. Houston's Week 3 Thursday night game is just nine weeks from today. Watt is now a serious candidate to miss the entire first month of the season, with the reserve/PUP list perhaps even an outside possibility. That would be the worst-case scenario.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports J.J. Watt is recovering from back surgery, but will be ready for Week 1.

Watt will begin camp on the active/PUP list, and is probably doubtful for the preseason. It caps an injury-marred offseason for Watt, who barely practiced as he recovered from "core" surgery on both sides of his body. Despite the sunny outlook, back surgery should never be taken lightly. Watt has earned his reputation as one of the toughest players in the league, but Week 1 shouldn't be considered a guarantee until we get a little deeper into camp.

Both Profootballtalk and ESPN's Adam Schefter report the Jaguars have no immediate plans to sign free agent Greg Hardy.

Per a league source via PFT, the Jags "wanted to learn more about Hardy so that they’ll know more about him if at some point down the road they need him." The Jags are essentially updating their emergency list. Of course, they're also almost certainly gauging public reaction to the pariah Hardy's visit. The Jags are Hardy's only-known workout of the offseason.

Richard Rodgers played as heavy as 272 pounds last season, but was "noticeably trimmer" this offseason.

Rodgers, who is 6-foot-4, is listed at 257 pounds. 272 is obviously an unacceptable number for a 6-foot-4 tight end, especially one expected to catch passes. Either way, longtime Packers reporter Bob McGinn expects Rodgers to remain the Packers' No. 1 tight end even following the addition of Jared Cook. We're betting against Rodgers matching any of the numbers from his 58/510/8 2015 slash.
