Giants CB Prince Amukamara re-injured his hamstring in last Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Ravens.

Amukamara originally suffered the injury in Week 14 against the Saints, and it forced him to miss one game. He went into the Baltimore game sore, but said he was good enough to go. Amukamara felt the hamstring "grab" while attempting to cover Torrey Smith on a go route, and an MRI on Monday revealed that the injury extended further down his leg. The 2011 first-round pick is not expected to play this week after being a "DNP" in practice on Wednesday and Thursday. Amukamara has played in just 19 of a possible 31 regular season games in his two seasons.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports suspended DE Dion Jordan is owed a $1.69 million roster bonus on the fifth day of camp.

Jordan would need to get reinstated for this bonus to become an issue, but if he does the Dolphins will have a difficult decision. The former No. 3 overall pick has not been effective even when on the field, and it is not a given he will stay out of trouble even if he is reinstated. That big of a bonus would certainly ensure Jordan a spot on the final roster whether he earns it in camp or not, and some in the organization may be unwilling to make that commitment. This situation should come to a head within the next week.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the NFL has determined Peyton Manning did not use HGH or any other performance-enhancing drugs.

Manning was implicated along with several other players in an Al Jazeera America report from December. The NFL determined there was "no credible evidence" the allegations were true after seven months of investigation. This development should be great news for James Harrison, Julius Peppers, Clay Matthews, and the other players implicated in the report, who have all submitted written statements declaring their innocence to the league office. The NFL still wants to interview each player.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell confirmed there are "no imminent plans" to sign free agent DE Greg Hardy.

Jacksonville made waves by working out Hardy last week, but it appears they were just updating their emergency list. "It was an opportunity for us," Caldwell said. "Here was a guy who was a franchise defensive end that was on the street and we tried to find out the facts of where he’s at, the truth behind him and everything that surrounds him and just do our homework." It sounds like Hardy could be an option for the Jags down the road, but for now his wait goes on.

The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports the Jets have given free agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick "multiple offers."

A three-year, $24-million deal appears to be the main offer, but Mehta reports the Jets have "presented at least one other option." The details of the second offer are not known, but it is clear Fitzpatrick is not interested in either option. Fitzpatrick has said he will accept a one-year contract for the same $12 million he would earn in 2016 under the three-year offer, but the Jets have been unwilling to make that deal to this point. Even with camp opening this week, this saga does not appear close to an end.

Greg Jennings announced his retirement from the NFL after 10 seasons.

Jennings made the announcement via a YouTube video linked below. Even though he played the final three years of his career in Minnesota and Miami, Jennings will forever be remembered as a Packer. He caught 425 passes for 6,537 yards and 53 touchdowns in his seven seasons with Green Bay, playing a key role in the Packers' Super-Bowl run in 2010. He is not Hall-Of-Fame bound, but he should earn some recognition from Green Bay down the road.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the NFL is investigating a Periscope video which allegedly shows Raiders suspended OLB Aldon Smith smoking an unidentified substance.

The video is titled "Fire up session" and shows a lit, hand-rolled cigarette. While Smith's face is not seen on the video in question, his voice is clearly heard, and the post comes from an account which featured Smith on camera several times. A woman astutely warns Smith he should not be posting the video, but Smith says it is fine because "they don't have my name." He then says his name at the end of the video. Already suspended until at least November, this situation is unlikely to earn Smith any more fans in the league office.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports Bills walk-year CB Stephon Gilmore will report for training camp.

"I'm planning to go out to training camp," Gilmore said. "I know what I am. It'll happen eventually." What Gilmore "knows" is he is a top-flight corner, and he wants to be paid like one. The Bills have not been willing to meet that asking price to this point, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes Gilmore will play out the final year of his deal. Gilmore is likely looking for something similar to the five-year, $75-million deal Josh Norman landed this offseason. If he is allowed to hit free agency next spring, he will likely get it.

Sammy Watkins (foot) suggested he is nearing 100 percent.

"As far as sprinting and stuff I’m moving and doing that 100 percent," said Watkins. "Any explosiveness I’m doing that. I’m doing the cuts, but certain things are full speed and certain things aren’t." Watkins said he is still not comfortable with speed cuts, but it is pretty clear he will be ready to go full tilt fairly early in camp. The Bills will likely limit their star playmaker throughout the preseason to avoid any setbacks, but there is little doubt he will be ready Week 1.

MMQB's Peter King said Ezekiel Elliott "better be ready" for 375 carries.

This is likely more of a statement on how much the Cowboys will lean on Elliott than a prediction of his final carry total, but it is not a completely insane number. DeMarco Murray had 392 carries just two seasons ago, and Darren McFadden averaged over 18 carries a game after he took over last year. The Cowboys likely do not want to ride the rookie like they did Murray in 2014, but 300-attempts is well within the realm of possibilities.

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 be Pittsburgh's workhorse back 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.
