Mike Wallace (groin) was limited in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Wallace was added to Miami's Thursday participation report with the groin injury, but practiced fully. Practice observers noticed nothing noticeably wrong with Wallace's running gait, so perhaps the Dolphins are trying to play injury report games ahead of Sunday's tilt with the Falcons. Check back Sunday morning, but our money is on "60 Minutes" getting the Week 3 start.

Montee Ball and C.J. Anderson are "splitting" first-team reps at Broncos OTAs.

The Broncos have a new coaching staff and have pushed a competition at the tailback spot, even if Anderson is seen as the heavy favorite. Although Anderson carries legitimate NFL-rushing-title upside in Gary Kubiak's run-friendly scheme, Anderson also holds risk because he isn't totally assured of opening the season as an every-down workhorse. At very least, fantasy owners who select Anderson early in drafts should be sure to handcuff him with Ball.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Sam Bradford (ACL) was walking with a "pronounced limp" on Thursday.

Bradford and the Eagles have continued to insist that he's progressing on schedule, but this is a player whose health can never be taken for granted. Bradford will supposedly resume 7-on-7 work next week. Coach Chip Kelly has declined to put a timetable on Bradford's return to full health, but it's clear the team's expectation is that he'll be ready for training camp.

Broncos LT Ryan Clady tore his left ACL in Wednesday's practice, and is done for the season.

It's a massive blow for a team with questions all over its offensive line. Second-rounder Ty Sambrailo has been penciled in at right tackle. He played left tackle at Colorado State, but the leap from the Mountain West to AFC West might not be one he's prepared to make on Peyton Manning's blindside. Clady's 2013 replacement, Chris Clark, remains on the Broncos' roster. Michael Schofield is another option. Limited to two games by a Lisfranc sprain in 2013, Clady was essentially replacement-level in his 2014 return. Clady turns 29 in September.

Joseph Randle has received a majority of first-team reps at this week's OTAs.

Randle, the incumbent, has his nose in front of this battle. Darren McFadden did get some reps with the starters on Wednesday, but Randle got more when Tony Romo was taking snaps. Although some have tried to prop up McFadden as a feature back candidate, his tape shows he's not capable of that and the Cowboys have hinted at using him as a "home-run hitting backup." We haven't heard of Ryan Williams or Lance Dunbar getting any first-team reps yet.

Victor Cruz (patellar tear) said he's "about 80 percent there" with his rehab.

"I think it's just a matter of continuing to build the strength for the last leg of it," Cruz said Wednesday. "I’ve been running some routes for about two weeks now, and there’s been no pain, no swelling or anything like that, which are all good signs." It's a very optimistic take from Cruz, as we'd expect from a guy going through rehab. We'll have to wait until training camp to see if his optimism is warranted as he comes off one of the most serious injuries a player can have.

Emmanuel Sanders doesn't anticipate having as much receiving production in the Broncos' new offense.

Sanders ranked fifth in the NFL in receiving yards (1,404) last season. He described run-game guru Gary Kubiak and new OC Rick Dennison's offense as "totally" and "definitely" different from outgoing OC Adam Gase's. "You talk about going from a no-huddle offense to an offense that’s huddling up, to an offense that is predicated off running a football and then throwing it," said Sanders. "It’s different." It's possible that Sanders will be overdrafted in fantasy leagues by owners trying to chase last year's stats. "My goal is really to try to get a 1,000 yards to just help this team win ball games," Sanders added. Prior to 2014, Sanders spent four seasons in the NFL, and never hit 750 receiving yards.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Adrian Peterson's beef with the Vikings is now that he wants guaranteed money in 2016.

Peterson doesn't have any guaranteed money in his current deal. He wants the team to guarantee a chunk -- or perhaps all ($14.75 million) -- of his 2016 salary, when Peterson will be 31 years old. After paying Peterson his entire salary to play just one game in 2014, it wouldn't be surprising if the Vikings were a bit resistant to making him this commitment. Either way, it's now clear that this has become a money issue, and is therefore a very solvable problem.

Cody Latimer is soaking up first-team reps at Broncos OTAs as unsigned franchise player Demaryius Thomas stays away from workouts.

"There's going to have to be some young receivers (who) really step up, and Cody's one of those guys," coach Gary Kubiak said. "I think it's a very competitive situation right now. But, yes, it's an important month for Cody." The 56th overall pick in last May's draft, Latimer runs 4.44 at 6-foot-3, 215 and has a 39-inch vertical. He projects as Denver's No. 3 receiver this year.

Free agent DE Ray McDonald was arrested again on Wednesday, this time for violating a restraining order.

Santa Clara (CA) Police were informed Wednesday that McDonald visited a home he was prohibited from visiting two days after being arrested for domestic assault and child endangerment. The restraining order stems from Monday's Memorial Day arrest. Wednesday's arrest took place at 2:52PM PT. Cut by the Bears two days ago, McDonald has now been arrested five times since 2010.

Speaking at Vikings OTAs on Wednesday, Teddy Bridgewater called Kyle Rudolph "the biggest weapon we have right now."

"He's like a new player out there," Bridgewater said of Rudolph, who endured yet another injury-ruined season in 2014. Rudolph, Bridgewater, and Charles Johnson spent the offseason training together. Still only 25 years old, Rudolph will be worth a late-round flyer in 2015 fantasy drafts. Durability remains the biggest obstacle in the way of Rudolph realizing his potential.

Coach Mike Zimmer said Adrian Peterson has "two choices: he can play for us or not play."

It's as strong a statement as we've heard from the Vikings regarding Peterson, though they've been hinting at this for months. Peterson has no leverage. He's due $12.75 million, an amount the Vikings are willing to pay and a salary that other teams aren't looking to acquire. It's Minnesota or nowhere for A.D.
