Citing a league source, Newsday reports the Jets plan to keep Mark Sanchez on the roster into the preseason and will let him compete for their starting quarterback job.

It doesn't necessarily mean much for the 2013 season. Jets rookie GM John Idzik comes from Seattle, and last offseason the Seahawks took a similar approach with then-incumbent Tarvaris Jackson after signing Matt Flynn and drafting Russell Wilson. Idzik has signed David Garrard and drafted Geno Smith. In Seattle, Jackson opened training camp as the Seahawks' "starter." On August 26, he was shipped to the Bills for a late-round pick. There are more salary cap implications to the Sanchez situation, but the Jets have even less of a reason to keep him than the Seahawks did with "T-Jack."

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

The injury is to the same hamstring that kept Robinson sidelined during the 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.

Andre Williams continues to take the goal-line snaps at Giants camp.

Williams was originally spotted in first-team goal-line packages more than a week ago, and nothing has changed. It's a place the fourth-round rookie can contribute right away, as the 230-pound grinder has a ways to go in pass protection and as a receiver. Rashad Jennings has a potential vulture on his hands.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells Profootballtalk.com there's a "slight chance" Josh Gordon could reach a settlement with the NFL where his one-year suspension is reduced.

Per PFT's Mike Florio, "Any deal presumably would entail a suspension for Gordon that lasts less than a year." This would be much better news for Gordon than the original notion of an "all or nothing" situation in Friday's appeal sitdown with hearing officer Harold Henderson, whereby either the one-year suspension would stand in full, or be erased. (The suspension isn't getting erased, by all accounts.) Florio reports "a ruling is expected fairly soon."

Profootballtalk reports Marshawn Lynch has agreed to a $1.5 million raise for 2014.

Lynch won his holdout, after all. His salary will increase from $5 million to $6 million, while he's getting a $500,000 "signing bonus." He's now up to $6.5 million guaranteed for 2014. In addition, the Seahawks will not collect Lynch's $495,000 in fines. The Seahawks freed up $1 million by guaranteeing Lynch's per-game roster bonuses. The signing bonus money is coming out of his 2015 salary. It's a nice increase, but also perhaps a nod to the fact that Lynch won't be back at his scheduled $5.5 million salary next year. The fact that Seattle was willing to give Beast Mode a $1.5 million raise to end a seven-day holdout is a fairly strong indication that his workload won't be scaled back much this season.

The Newark Star-Ledger expects the Giants to employ a running-back-by-committee approach this season, despite David Wilson's career-threatening neck injury.

The Giants' offseason certainly suggests they want to use more than one back. They signed Rashad Jennings, re-signed Peyton Hillis, drafted Andre Williams, and return sophomore Michael Cox. "I think we have some talented guys at that spot," coach Tom Coughlin said. "Rashad has done well. I think the young kid (Williams) has come along the more we have given him to do. Michael Cox has had his spots." Jennings' fantasy Average Draft Position currently sits at the end of round four. Frank Gore, deservedly, recently leapfrogged Jennings in ADP.

Reggie Wayne (ACL) has been "effortlessly snatching passes out of the air" at Colts training camp, and coach Chuck Pagano deemed his recovery "really incredible."

"I've done everything I've wanted to do," said Wayne, who is all systems go. "I've run every route." Three players in NFL history have topped 1,000 receiving yards after their 36th birthday, and Wayne appears on pace to become No. 4. (He turns 36 in November.) Beat writer reports on Wayne's practice play have been unfailingly positive. Whereas T.Y. Hilton's Average Draft Position is at the fifth-/sixth-round turn, Wayne is available in the seventh and eighth rounds of drafts.

Marshawn Lynch has officially reported to Seahawks camp.

The Seahawks didn't blink, and Beast Mode lost his resolve after only a week. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Seattle is expected to add "some financial concessions to (Lynch's) contract," but it's likely just the forgiveness of his massive fine. Lynch's holdout was so short that it shouldn't affect his Week 1 preparation. He remains a solid second-round pick in re-draft leagues.
Jul 31 - 5:19 PM

Coach Mike Pettine said Johnny Manziel will start to get some reps with the first-string offense soon.

So far, Brian Hoyer has gotten all the first-team reps while Manziel has struggled to complete passes with the backups. That doesn't mean this competition is over, as we still have more than five weeks until Week 1. Hoyer is a journeyman lacking difference-making talent and is coming off an ACL tear. "I don't think one is ahead of the other," OC Kyle Shanahan said Thursday. "I hope one will make the decision easy on us."
Jul 31 - 12:09 PM

Harold Henderson will hear Josh Gordon's appeal on Friday.

It's not good news for Gordon. A source previously told the Cleveland Plain-Dealer that "you would have a better chance of convincing your teacher your dog ate your homework" than trying to get Henderson to buy a second-hand smoke defense. The Plain Dealer added Thursday that it's a "longshot" Gordon will get off the hook. Commissioner Roger Goodell will not be at the hearing, but is expected to meet with Gordon sometime in the next week.
