Texans declared FS Ed Reed (hip), G Cody White, QB Case Keenum, T Andrew Gardner, ILB Darryl Sharpton, OL David Quessenberry, and OLB Sam Montgomery inactive for Monday night's opener against the Chargers.

Reed made the trip to San Diego but wasn't expected to play. Shiloh Keo or rookie D.J. Swearinger will make the start next to Danieal Manning. Sharpton is dealing with a concussion. Quessenberry broke his foot in practice this week.

Latavius Murray underwent ankle surgery on Wednesday.

Murray dealt with ankle issues in the second half of last season, but didn't miss any time. The Vikings were aware he needed surgery before signing him to a three-year deal. It sounds like this is a minor clean-up to remove bone chips. Murray will likely miss all of OTAs, but is expected to be ready for training camp.

Free agent RB Tim Hightower is visiting the Redskins on Wednesday.

Hightower turns 31 in May, but he sat out the 2012, 2013, and 2014 seasons after tearing his ACL with the Redskins and experiencing complications. If he signs in Washington, it would be a reunion of sorts. Rob Kelley came on strong as an UDFA last season but fizzled a bit down the stretch. Matt Jones has struggled with ball security the last two years. This backfield could use a fresh face. Hightower is nothing more than a timeshare back as part of a duo.

In a Wednesday conference call, newly signed WR Kamar Aiken said GM Chris Ballard told him he'll be given a fair shake to win the Colts' No. 3 receiver job.

Ballard has no ties to former first-round WR Phillip Dorsett and likely doesn't care whether he's the No. 3 or 4 wideout. Aiken was signed on Tuesday and "was told there was going to be open competition in the receiving room." Aiken also seemed legitimately salty about being phased out of the Ravens' offense in 2016 after leading the team in receiving the previous year. Dorsett has shown very little in the NFL. We wouldn't be surprised at all if Aiken wins the job.

Seahawks signed S Bradley McDougald, formerly of the Bucs, to a one-year contract.

McDougald, 26, also visited the Browns. He would have started in Cleveland, but McDougald will settle in as Seattle's No. 3 safety behind FS Earl Thomas and SS Kam Chancellor, both of whom are recovering from surgeries. McDougald showed promise in Tampa Bay as a box safety, but the Bucs moved on with former Cowboys S J.J. Wilcox.

The Steelers are not expected to re-sign free agent RB DeAngelo Williams.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette believes that "ship has sailed." Williams did a great job filling in for Le'Veon Bell the past couple seasons, but Bouchette expects Pittsburgh to address running back in the draft and get younger there. Turning 34 next month, Williams hasn't drawn an ounce of known interest but could be waiting for training camp to sign.

Saints re-signed CB Sterling Moore to a one-year contract.

Pulled off the scrap heap before Week 1, Moore was forced into heavy 2016 snaps. He provided steady, if far from spectacular, play. Ideally, the 27-year-old would be the Saints' No. 4 cornerback in 2017.

ESPN New York expects Jets QB Christian Hackenberg to make starts in 2017.

Buckle up. Hackenberg was so bad as a rookie the Jets were loath to even give him quality practice reps, but reporter Rich Cimini expects 2017 to be about "(finding) out about (Hackenberg)." An anonymous Jets source told the New York Daily News in January that he already knew about Hackenberg, declaring he would "never make it." Hackenberg was viewed as a colossal reach at No. 51 overall last spring and did nothing as a rookie, either in practice or the preseason, to change that perception.

Dolphins signed LB Kiko Alonso to a four-year, $28.8 million contract.

The deal reportedly includes $18.5 million guaranteed. For whatever reason, this was one of the Dolphins' top goals this offseason. Alonso was a restricted free agent tendered at the first-round ($3.91 million) level. Alonso didn't necessarily stay healthy in 2016, dealing with hand and hamstring injuries, but he finally stayed on the field. He played over 1,000 snaps across 15 games, ringing up 115 tackles, two interceptions and a forced fumble. Pro Football Focus rated his play as below average, but the Dolphins obviously see room for improvement. The 'Fins have dabbled with the idea of moving MLB Alonso to the weak-side, but he seems to want to remain in the middle.

Panthers DE Charles Johnson is undergoing back surgery, and will miss the entire offseason program.

Per the Panthers' official website, Johnson will be ready for training camp. The team can't be too concerned, as it just gave Johnson a new two-year, $9.5 million contract two weeks ago. Going on 31, Johnson has missed 10 combined games with injury over the past two years. He dealt with a hamstring/quad ailment in 2016. This is his first documented back issue.

Cam Newton will undergo surgery on his throwing shoulder to repair a "partially torn rotator cuff," and is questionable for the start of training camp.

Newton first suffered the injury in Week 14. The team initially believed he would heal with rest and rehab, but instead he'll go under the knife on March 30. Newton will do no throwing for three months, and won't resume throwing with the team for four months. That's right around the start of camp. Newton could be highly limited in the preseason, and perhaps held out of exhibition action altogether. At least for now, his Week 1 status is not in doubt.

Speaking in a Tuesday radio interview, Marshawn Lynch's agent said the retired running back "does miss football."

Despite that admission, Lynch's agent claimed ignorance on his apparent comeback plans. "Well in all sincerity, Marshawn’s been in Canada," the rep said. "I’m due to see him this week. ... He loves the game of football. He’s 30. But until I meet with him this week, you know, I don’t know what his mindset is. He’s the kind of guy that can shift by the hour." All reports have had Lynch angling for a shot with his hometown Raiders. The situation should come to a head sometime in the next few weeks, if not days.
