Speaking Monday, Ravens coach John Harbaugh confirmed Ray Rice (left hip flexor) did not undergo an MRI, and is "day to day."

Harbaugh said Rice is unlikely to practice this week, but that he could suit up for Sunday's game against the Texans without practicing. He basically admitted that Rice will be a game-time decision. We don't doubt Rice could play without practicing, but the odds he actually does so are fairly low. Fantasy owners need to be planning to be without their RB1 this weekend, and for Bernard Pierce to get the start and a heavy workload. Rice's status will be updated no later than Wednesday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms Tyler Eifert (ankle surgery) is "in jeopardy" for Week 1.

Eifert would basically have to have no snags in his rehab to be ready, and "no snags" has never been Eifert's health M.O. Eifert will undoubtedly miss the entire preseason, and likely spend the majority of camp on the active/PUP list. Barring a major setback, he should be able to avoid reserve/PUP, which would cost him six games.

Larry Fitzgerald has "no idea" if 2016 will be his final season.

Fitz has previously admitted this could be his final campaign, but was more coy on Tuesday. "Honestly, I have no idea," Fitz said. "I really don't look at it like that." Fitz averaged a career low 11.1 yards per reception last season, but it was largely by design. He worked underneath with Michael Floyd and John Brown doing damage downfield. Fitz was far less productive with Floyd at full health, but still posted a sparkling 109/1,215/9 line. Although he's going on 33, there's little doubt Fitz could physically play more than one season. The question is if the mental steam will remain.

Marcus Mariota has added 15 pounds of muscle this offseason, going from 210 to 225.

Mariota said he wants to be "sturdier." He's confident of maintaining his speed despite the added heft. Mariota suffered two MCL injuries as a rookie, and clearly believes he was too slight. Adding more weight adds more pressure to his joints, of course, but 225 pounds is far from crazy for a 6-foot-4 quarterback, even a running one. He was listed at 222 at the Combine. It shouldn't have an adverse effect on Mariota's play.

Le'Veon Bell (MCL, PCL) said he will be 100 percent when training camp begins.

He is participating in individual drills during OTAs. Players are usually overly optimistic about injuries, but Bell's confidence is better than the alternative. Even if he is eased into training camp, the assumption is Bell will be a full go by Week 1. With this injury sure to knock him down a few ADP pegs, Bell could end up being the best value of the first round.

No. 5 overall pick CB Jalen Ramsey is expected to miss six weeks after undergoing surgery to repair the meniscus in his right knee.

Considering timelines of 4-6 months were floated right after the injury was reported, six weeks might be the best possible outcome. Ramsey will miss the entire offseason program, but he should be ready to go for training camp. The Jaguars, who lost No. 3 overall pick Dante Fowler to a torn ACL last May, can let out a huge sigh of relief.

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler wrote "it really feels like" the Redskins plan to add another running back.

With Matt Jones, a seventh-round rookie with serious injury questions marks (Keith Marshall) and not much else at running back, it would make sense for the Redskins to dip into the market. Pierre Thomas spent time with Washington last season, but he is more of a passing-down option. Arian Foster would make the most sense, but he might not be the same player following an Achilles' tear from which he is still not fully recovered. Jones looks like the clear workhorse right now, but that could change if Washington brings in a veteran.

ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss reports Dion Lewis (ACL) is fully expected to be ready for Week 1.

Lewis tore his ACL on November 8. Reiss reports people close to Lewis believe he could be ready to play in a month. The Patriots will likely limit him throughout the offseason program and into training camp, but Lewis' availability for the regular season does not appear to be in doubt. Lewis tallied 622 total yards and four touchdowns in just seven games last season. His role should remain secure as New England's dynamic space/passing-down back.

Bills GM Doug Whaley said he expects Sammy Watkins (foot) to be ready for Week 1.

Watkins underwent surgery to repair a broken foot last month. Despite his optimism about the regular season, Whaley declined to put a timetable on Watkins' return, lending credence to the notion he will not be ready for training camp. The Bills brought free agent Andre Roberts in for a workout last week, and they will likely look to bring in some veteran bodies this summer.

ESPN Browns reporter Pat McManamon believes coach Hue Jackson sees Duke Johnson "as an every-down back."

McManamon believes the previous regime in Cleveland saw Johnson as an every-down back as well, but a hamstring injury in training camp held him back. Despite his size (5'9, 210), Johnson had the look of a three-down back in college and could certainly handle more than the 104 carries he saw last season. If Isaiah Crowell falters, Johnson could find himself in a workhorse role.

With Mark Sanchez (thumb surgery) not expected to participate in OTAs, Paxton Lynch will see expanded first-team reps.

"Just watching him, I think he'll catch up pretty quick," said coach Gary Kubiak after rookie minicamp. The 26th overall pick in the draft, Lynch stands 6-foot-7, 244 and has dual-threat mobility, which will mesh well in Kubiak's bootleg-centric offense. Sanchez is a short-term placeholder at best. If Lynch practices and plays well in the preseason, he should be given a serious look to start in Week 1 against the Panthers.

Tom Brady's appeal in the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals argues that two judges who sided with the NFL to have Brady's suspension reinstated "got the law wrong."

Brady's team is asking the three judges who heard his initial case (two voted nay, one yay) to "rehear their arguments." "The panel decision stands in stark contrast with fundamental rules of labor law and undermines the rights of union members and employers alike," Brady attorney Theodore Olson wrote. "This court should grant rehearing or rehearing en banc." According to the Boston Herald, Brady has "told friends since January 2015 that he'll go to his grave believing he did nothing wrong" in the so-called Deflategate. On a personal note, we CAN'T WAIT for this whole thing to go away.
