The Baltimore Sun reports the Colts and Browns will soon engage in a "bidding war" for free agent OLB Paul Kruger.

The Browns have been "particularly aggressive" on both Kruger and Cliff Avril since Saturday morning's negotiating window opened. One source predicted Kruger will command $10 million to $12 million per year. Both Cleveland and Indianapolis are flush with cap space and need pass-rush help. It's conceivable that the Kruger will go to the Colts and Avril to the Browns, or vice versa.

Suspended WR Josh Gordon's appeal meeting with hearing officer Harold Henderson lasted almost ten hours Friday and will resume Monday in New York.

Henderson "shut it down" for the night after the sides met from 9:30AM until 7PM Friday. Henderson could theoretically reduce Gordon's one-year suspension, but such reductions are rare because "it's an appeal and it's meant to be rejected or confirmed." Currently trying the same "second-hand smoke" defense Gordon is now employing, Ravens S Will Hill lost his appeal of a six-game ban for violating the substance abuse policy earlier this offseason. Still, the Cleveland Plain Dealer believes the fact that Friday's hearing lasted so long, and will continue Monday "would seem to indicate that Gordon has at least a chance for something other than the minimum one-year ban."

Knowshon Moreno (knee) could miss the entire preseason.

Moreno's initial timetable was 4-5 weeks. Now six weeks removed from his June knee scope, Moreno "still labors to walk, let alone run," per the Miami Herald, and "is still unsure when he'll return." Lamar Miller will continue to handle first-team carries and remains the heavy favorite to start Week 1. Before Friday's practice, Moreno was sporting ice packs on both knees "and he had an awkward gait" as he made his way to work with trainers. "I don’t know. I don’t know," Moreno said when asked if he'll play in an exhibition game. "I really don’t even know." At this point, we wouldn't advise drafting Moreno save for in the deepest of leagues.

ESPN Seahawks reporter Terry Blount reports Marshawn Lynch was seeking $5 million more than the "concessions" Seattle gave him, bumping his 2014 pay by $1.5 million.

The $1.5 million offer was reportedly on the table from Seattle since way back at minicamp, and moved Lynch's 2014 guaranteed take from $5 million to $6.5 million. "The offer never changed" from the team, per Blount. The Seahawks have still not formally waived the $30,000 per-day fines Lynch incurred during his week-long holdout. Ultimately, zero money was actually added to Lynch's contract. His base pay increased by $1 million by turning would-be incentives into salary, and $500,000 was moved from Lynch's 2015 pay into 2014. Per Blount, Lynch "realizes there's a good possibility" he is cut next offseason.

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett expects the Saints to employ a "pretty even workload" split between their top three tailbacks this year.

Pierre Thomas is expected to man the "nickel/third-down role" vacated by Darren Sproles, while Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson share most of the ball-carrying heavylifting. As usual, New Orleans' 2014 backfield will be tricky to evaluate from a fantasy perspective on a week-by-week basis. Thomas is the best PPR pick, while Ingram offers the best value in touchdown-heavy leagues at his 13th-/14th-round ADP. Robinson's ADP is in the middle of round nine.

The Packers fear fifth-round WR Jared Abbrederis suffered a torn right ACL in Thursday's training camp practice.

The Wisconsin alum was competing for a roster spot as a special teams player. The Packers are awaiting test results to confirm their initial fears, but it appears Abbrederis will spend his rookie season on injured reserve.

A decision on Josh Gordon's year-long suspension appeal is not expected until Monday at soonest.

Gordon is in New York on Friday having his appeal heard by Harold Henderson, but no final decision will be made until commissioner Roger Goodell returns from this weekend's Hall of Fame festivities in Canton, Ohio. "Josh is going through the process right now," Goodell told reporters Friday. "I am not a part of that process. At some point in time, I may have an opportunity to be involved. When I am, I look forward to meeting with him."

Coach Jim Harbaugh revealed Friday that Michael Crabtree will miss "a week or two" with an undisclosed injury.

The Niners have given no details on Crabtree's illness or injury, but Harbs assured "it's not foot or Achilles' related." Harbaugh doesn't necessarily have a great track record of honesty when it comes to injury information, however. Keep a close eye on this situation. If 100 percent, Crabtree is a prime contract-year bounce-back candidate after missing 11 games last season.

Arian Foster (undisclosed) is sidelined again at Texans camp.

Under ex-Patriots assistant Bill O'Brien, the Texans are taking a Belichickian approach to injuries, declining to divulge locations and extents. So they won't say whether Foster suffered a setback with his early-camp hamstring injury. Foster returned to practice Wednesday, and was out Thursday. "He’s doing OK," O’Brien said of Foster. "It’s kind of a day-to-day thing. It’s nothing serious. I would assume – (but) guess you can’t assume anything – he’d be back pretty soon." 28-year-old Foster tore his hamstring during 2011 training camp, so there is history here. He's an incredibly high-risk early-round fantasy investment.

Second-round WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) will be out at least two weeks.

The injury is to the same hamstring that sidelined Robinson this spring, so we have the early makings of a recurring issue here. It's enough to keep the Penn State product off our re-draft boards. Meanwhile, Cecil Shorts is fighting a Grade 2 hamstring pull of his own, leaving Marqise Lee to soak up reps as the No. 1 wideout. Lee is a good bet to lead the Jags in receptions this season.

Through one week of camp, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel says Eddie Lacy "couldn't have looked any better."

The Journal-Sentinel says you'd be hard-pressed to find a subpar moment for Lacy, who is preparing himself for a mammoth workload in one of the league's elite offenses. "You know, I don't think he even cares if it's a zone or a gap scheme," backup QB Matt Flynn said. "He's going to find the hole." Lacy is reportedly "running through arm tackles" and "showing off top-notch speed for a big man." The second-year man is our pick at No. 5 overall in fantasy drafts.

Coach Dennis Allen said both Maurice Jones-Drew and Darren McFadden will get touches this season.

Jones-Drew and McFadden are competing for the title of "starter" and to see who gets their nose in front. But it's a no-brainer decision for the Raiders to use a two-man committee, as MJD is a declining at 29 years old and McFadden brings outside game-breaking ability despite the holes in his game. "They understand that both of them are going to get an opportunity to play, both of them are going to get touches," Allen said. We're not expecting either back to go over 200 touches.
