Giovani Bernard rushed eight times for 38 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for a 27-yard touchdown in Monday night's Week 2, 20-10 win over the Steelers.

They were the first two touchdowns of the second-round rookie's young career. Unofficially, we charted Bernard with 29 snaps to BenJarvus Green-Ellis' 50. Bernard saw his first carry with 2:50 left in the first quarter. He was the far more explosive back of the two, as expected. Bernard and K Mike Nugent accounted for all of Cincinnati's scoring. Andy Dalton was inaccurate for much of the night, while A.J. Green was mostly held in check by Ike Taylor on the outside. Bernard's touchdown run came from seven yards out late in the first quarter, and the Bengals aren't averse to giving him looks near the goal line despite his 5-foot-8 frame. His workload should steadily increase as the season goes on. The Bengals host the Packers next week. Bernard will remain a RB2/flex play.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Terrance West (NFI) will practice on Friday.

This appears to be a true non-story. West says he passed his conditioning test. If he does indeed practice Friday with the other Cleveland first-year players, he'll miss zero meaningful time. The Browns' full-squad workouts don't begin until Saturday. West and Ben Tate is one of the biggest competitions of summer.

Chiefs signed RB Jamaal Charles to a two-year, $18.1 million contract extension through 2017.

So much for that holdout. Charles is now the second-highest paid running back in the league behind Adrian Peterson and is locked up through his age-31 campaign. On his previous deal, Charles was scheduled to make $3.9 million in salary and bonuses this season. He'll now make $8.3 million in 2014. It's well deserved after Charles put the Chiefs' offense on his back and carried them to the playoffs in 2013. Charles is entering his age-28 season. He's a locked-in top-three fantasy back, along with Peterson and LeSean McCoy.

Giants GM Jerry Reese admitted the team is concerned about first-round rookie WR Odell Beckham's "tweaked" hamstring.

"He missed part of spring ball with a hamstring and he tweaked it yesterday. Obviously there is a concern," Reese said. Beckham first injured the hammy in the spring, and then re-tweaked it on his first route on the opening day of training camp Tuesday. Coach Tom Coughlin said after Wednesday's practice that he has no idea when Beckham will be back on the field. Rookie receivers tend to struggle in year one anyway, so any missed practice time for Beckham is a concern. Jerrell Jernigan ran with the starters in three-wide sets on Wednesday.

Sidney Rice has retired from the NFL after 7 seasons.

Rice is just 27 years old, and theoretically should be in the prime of his career. But Rice has missed a total of 31 games in his seven seasons. He's reportedly retiring because of a history of concussions. Rice was knocked out a number of times in his playing career and also was trying to return from a torn ACL. What once looked like a promising career after an 83-catch, 1,312-yard, 8-touchdown 2009 season with the Vikings has ended in sad fashion. Rice caught a total of 243 passes for 3,592 yards and 30 scores. He went to one Pro Bowl.

Broncos SLB Von Miller (knee) has been cleared for limited work, and will avoid opening camp on the active/PUP list.

The Broncos will ease Miller back in after he tore his right ACL in Week 16. The Broncos will keep him away from contact until the third preseason game, at the earliest. Barring setbacks, Miller will be on the field for the opener. He slimmed down in the offseason and is fully committed to a bounce-back season. With DeMarcus Ware opposite him, Miller should easily post double-digit sacks.

Washington D.C. Police have asked for the public's help in locating suspended free agent TE Fred Davis, who is wanted for domestic violence.

Details are scarce, but police say the simple assault happened on June 2 around 3 AM in the D.C. area. It's Davis' second run-in with the law since the season ended; he was booked for DUI in February. Davis, 28, is currently serving an indefinite NFL suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. His life has gone off the tracks since a breakout 2011 season.

Daniel Fells has been operating as the Giants' starting tight end through the first two days of training camp.

Fells is the most experienced tight end in camp, as he's made 30 starts in 71 career appearances. However, he was out of the league last season and will turn 31 in September. The Giants may just be giving him the nod early on due to his experience, but it's something worth monitoring. Adrien Robinson has been tabbed the favorite to start at tight end all offseason. He ballooned up close to 290 pounds and reported to camp at 276. Whoever ends up manning tight end -- our money is still on Robinson -- won't be a recommended fantasy option.

Browns signed No. 8 overall pick CB Justin Gilbert to a four-year contract.

Cleveland and Gilbert were in a stalemate over offset language in his contract. The deal contains a fifth-year club option for 2018. Gilbert gets his contract done just in time for training camp. He's expected to open the season as the starter opposite Joe Haden. With Haden rounding into a shutdown corner, Gilbert is likely to be targeted heavily as a rookie. Buster Skrine will man the slot.

A source tells the Miami Herald that C Mike Pouncey (hip surgery) is now expected to be out until late October.

Pouncey's labrum repair was always expected to cost him the first 3-4 weeks of the season, but now it sounds like he won't be back until Week 8 or so. He's starting camp on the active/PUP list, which puts the reserve/PUP list in play for the regular season. It's a major concern for an already shaky offensive line, as Nate Garner will likely have to fill in at the pivot.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher labeled rookie Tre Mason as a "change-of-pace back" following May's draft.

Mason could earn complementary carries off the bench this season, but rumors of him threatening bellcow Zac Stacy's starting job are unfounded. "Tre is a change-of-pace back," said Fisher. "Good zone runner, obviously the numbers speak for themselves. He was a guy we just couldn't pass up at that point." Pre-draft reports claimed Mason would need wrist surgery, but the Rams disagreed. "He may have to do something after the season but it was not a concern of ours, nor was it a concern of the doctors," Fisher said of the wrist.

Tavon Austin acknowledged he struggled to learn the Rams' playbook as a rookie.

It's worth noting Austin scored a 7 on his 2013 Wonderlic test. "I didn't really know what was going on," he said. "Everything looked like Spanish and sounded like Spanish to me." Entering his second season, Austin now claims to have OC Brian Schottenheimer's system down pat. He's expected to be a sub-package weapon, playing limited snaps. Austin is a long shot for steady WR3 value.
