Packers DE Jerel Worthy (torn ACL) is vowing to play "at some point" in 2013.

Worthy tore his left ACL in Week 17. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel gave him "long odds" of playing this season in a January article. The 2012 second-round pick notched 2.5 sacks in 443 snaps as a rookie. He'll almost certainly begin 2013 on the reserve/PUP list.

Seahawks agreed to terms with coach Pete Carroll on an extension through 2019.

The deal pairs Carroll with GM John Schneider for the next four seasons. Carroll is the league's oldest coach — really — but arguably its second best behind Bill Belichick. Carroll has staked his claim to being one of the greatest football minds of all time in Seattle, building on the amazing success he had at USC. The Seahawks have made the playoffs 5-of-6 years on Carroll's watch, advancing to two Super Bowls. Going on 65, it's possible this is Carroll's final contract.

The Sacramento Bee reports Colin Kaepernick (shoulder surgery) has been cleared for training camp.

Kap underwent shoulder, knee and thumb operations, but it was his shoulder that needed final clearance. Kap could still begin camp on active/PUP as he gets his conditioning in order, but he'll be ready to battle Blaine Gabbert for the starting job. Amazingly, Gabbert seems to have a leg up. It's a crazy world out there.

Free agent Andre Johnson worked out for the Titans on Tuesday.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, it was a "feel-out session for both sides." Whatever it was, it signals further displeasure with sophomore Dorial Green-Beckham. Johnson appeared to have very little left in 2015, but a young team like the Titans would value his intangibles more than most.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports Jordy Nelson left knee issue is tendinitis, and "not (currently) viewed as serious."

Per Werder, the issue is believed to be the result of Nelson "overcompensating during rehab" from his torn right ACL. Minor side ailments are common as players return from serious injuries like ACL and Achilles' tears, but can often linger. The Pack are putting on a brave face about Nelson's Week 1 status, but it shouldn't be taken for granted.

Browns placed WR Josh Gordon (quad) on the active/NFI list.

Gordon got hurt working out on his own this summer, and will miss a "couple of weeks." It's obviously the last thing Gordon needed after being suspended 27 of the past 32 games. Gordon figures to be on a strict snap count when he returns from his latest ban in Week 5, and should be worked in slowly. Gordon can't be drafted as more than a WR3 who could pay off as something more in the second half of the season.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid confirms OLB Justin Houston (knee, PUP) will likely miss all of training camp.

Houston is just four months removed from having his (apparently not torn) ACL repaired. He was slapped with a 6-12 month timeline in February. Houston is a strong candidate for the reserve/PUP list.
Jul 26 - 4:22 PM

Bengals placed TE Tyler Eifert (ankle surgery) on the active/PUP list.

Eifert doesn't appear to be a candidate to revert to reserve/PUP, costing him six games, but he's questionable for Week 1. We probably won't have a good idea of Eifert's status for the opener until the waning days of camp.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports unsigned Chiefs franchise player Eric Berry won't report for the start of training camp.

It's a symbolic gesture, as the sides can't negotiate until after the season. Berry might be trying to lessen his injury odds, but holdouts are often prone to soft-tissue ailments. He could also be angling for 2017 concessions (I.E., not another franchise tag). We'd imagine Berry won't wait too long before signing his $10.8 million tender.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick is not expected to re-sign with the Jets before the start of training camp on Wednesday.

The Harvard man is committed to hardball. Of course, hardball works better when you have actual leverage. Until/if a starter gets hurt elsewhere, Fitz is essentially negotiating against himself. With bitterness having set in, Fitz could sit out for quite a while, but the Jets remain his only realistic destination.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports suspended Cowboys RE Randy Gregory has again violated the league's substance-abuse policy, and is facing a longer suspension.

ESPN's Ed Werder reported earlier Tuesday that Gregory was headed to drug treatment instead of Cowboys camp. Now we know why. It's a sadly unsurprising development for a player who entered the league with lots of questions about his off-the-field habits. It's probably best assumed that he won't see the field in 2016, which is devastating news for the Cowboys' wafer-thin front seven. Owner Jerry Jones could be getting awful tempted to give free agent Greg Hardy a call.
Jul 26 - 1:55 PM

Ravens agreed to terms with OT Jake Long on a one-year contract.

The former No. 1 overall pick spent 2015 in mothballs on the Falcons' bench. Now 31, the oft-injured Long says he's "finally healthy," but at best, he'll be the No. 3 tackle for a team that released Eugene Monroe last month. Ronnie Stanley and Ricky Wagner are the starters at tackle.
