Ravens re-signed restricted free agent TE Ed Dickson to a one-year, $1.32 million deal.

Dickson didn't draw an offer sheet before the April 19 deadline, so signing his tender was his only choice if he wanted to play football this season. The Ravens' No. 2 pass-catching tight end, Dickson slumped to a 21/225/0 line last season after catching 54 passes for 528 yards and five touchdowns in 2011. He's not going to make a fantasy impact in 2013.

Todd Gurley (ACL) has remained limited to individual-drill and walkthrough reps, and coach Jeff Fisher made it clear Tuesday that Rams are taking a "long-term" approach to Gurley's recovery.

"This is going to be a process," Fisher emphasized. "It’s not going to be a day to day thing. We are looking at this long term process right now. By that when I say long term, I’m talking about let’s just go week to week and go through the preseason and we’ll see where we are when the season starts." Fisher was noncommittal on whether Gurley will play in the preseason. Fisher described Gurley as "a ways away" in terms of full availability.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano hinted he is open to using Vontae Davis to shadow opposing No. 1 receivers this season.

Davis has strictly played RCB through two years in Pagano's defense, emerging as arguably a top-three NFL corner behind Richard Sherman and Darrelle Revis. "We’ve got to be able to do whatever we want to do with him," Pagano said. "If that means putting him on somebody’s best wide receiver instead of just playing one side of the (field), then maybe that’s the next progression. We’ll see." This is something to keep in mind for DFS purposes.

Free agent Pierre Thomas will work out for the Texans on Wednesday.

Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the Texans hope to sign Thomas if "all is well." It's the first domino to fall following Tuesday's news that Arian Foster requires groin surgery. Thomas would be a passing-down back in a committee backfield for coach Bill O'Brien. Alfred Blue, Chris Polk and perhaps Jonathan Grimes would battle it out on early downs. Grimes is also an option in the passing game. In theory, Ray Rice's every-down skill-set would make him a better flier than Thomas, but perhaps he lost another step in 2014 following his down 2013. Rice would also come with a public relations hit.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Arian Foster (groin surgery) will "almost certainly" begin the year on injured reserve/designated to return.

Rapsheet labels Foster's injury "major," while the Houston Chronicle has deemed it "severe." I.R./return dictates that players miss at least the first eight weeks of the season. With Houston on bye for Week 9, Foster wouldn't be eligible to make his debut until Week 10. The trio of Alfred Blue, Jonathan Grimes and Chris Polk will now try to formulate a committee in Foster's absence, but outside help is almost certainly on the way.

Browns coach Mike Pettine hints the team will have "special plays" for Terrelle Pryor this season.

Talking about a trick play Pryor was a part of in Tuesday's practice, Pettine said "special plays" will be a weekly occurrence for the Browns this season. "I’m just a firm believer in always having that option," Pettine said. "If you get into a game where there’s a lull on both sides offensively, you need something to break it open. Having a guy like Terrelle certainly gives us that ability." We're not even a week into camp, but it's become increasingly clear that Pryor is not only to going to make the 53-man roster, but have a real role on offense.

Speaking Tuesday, Browns coach Mike Pettine called third-round RB Duke Johnson's (hamstring) continued absence "disappointing."

"It’s just disappointing that a guy we’re counting on being a big part of what we do, to lose him at this formative time," Pettine said. "He’ll have a lot of catch-up work to do. There’s no substitute for getting live reps." Pettine doesn't appear to be criticizing his rookie, but simply stating the obvious. It's unclear how long Johnson, who is ticketed for third-down duties, might be sidelined. He got injured on Sunday. NFL Network's Albert Breer did suggest Tuesday that Johnson could miss a "couple more weeks."

Allen Hurns is running as a first-team wideout at training camp, ahead of Marqise Lee.

Lee's inconsistent play and consistent trips to the training room have him lagging behind. Meanwhile, Hurns has been "steady as usual" while running opposite breakout candidate Allen Robinson. Regardless of who wins out between Hurns and Lee, we're not expecting much statistical production as the No. 3 target on a team that figures to play slow and scuffle offensively.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said he doubts suspended WR Justin Blackmon ever plays NFL football again.

"Realistically, when you're away from the game for two-and-a-half years, what you were once is not what you will probably be -- your skills do erode, especially when you're not in shape and not in top football shape," Caldwell said, adding that getting back into the league doesn't appear to be a priority for Blackmon. The Times-Union reports the only reason the Jags haven't cut Blackmon is because they're trying to recoup several million of the $7.11 million signing bonus he received as the No. 5 overall pick in 2012.

Charles Clay has yet to be targeted in the passing game through four Bills training camp practices.

Clay is making Gronk-Jimmy Graham money on his new five-year, $38 million deal, but has been concerningly uninvolved in the Bills' early-camp passing game. Clay did say he spends time before and after practice catching balls from Buffalo's motley quarterback crew. Clay's role in new OC Greg Roman's offense remains to be seen. We hope to gain clarity at some point in August.

ESPN Cleveland "keep(s) hearing" Terrance West is on "thin ice because of maturity issues."

West's poor practice habits and inconsistent ball security led him into the coaches' doghouse repeatedly as a rookie. Then the team went out and spent a third-round pick on Duke Johnson while also talking up Isaiah Crowell. ESPN Cleveland added that West looks "chunky" early on in training camp.

NJ.com says Rashad Jennings looks "big, strong, fast and quick" early on at training camp.

Jennings, fully recovered from last year's knee and ankle woes, is turning heads early in camp even though he's 30 years old. Remember this is a versatile player who Ben McAdoo gave 19.2 carries per game to in the first eight weeks of last season. He's a far better option than backup big back Andre Williams and is wildly undervalued at a seventh- or eighth-round ADP right now.
