Andre Brown (broken leg, short-term IR) tweeted last Thursday that he has resumed running.

"We runnnnnnniinnnnnnn let go get!!!!!!," were Brown's exact words. He's eligible to come off IR/recall when the Giants come out of their bye in Week 10. Even if David Wilson (neck) is 100 percent by that time, Brown will certainly have a real role. Brandon Jacobs and Da'Rel Scott shouldn't be on an NFL roster. Brown ran for 385 yards and eight touchdowns in 10 games last year. He was spotted doing "serious running" on a back field during Tuesday's practice.

Marshawn Lynch has accrued $455,000 in fines for his holdout.

Lynch is drawing $30,000 in daily fines, while his sixth day of holding out on Tuesday triggered a $275,000 fine under terms of the CBA. Coach Pete Carroll has expressed a desire to come to a resolution. That will likely include forgiving Lynch's fines.

A San Antonio official confirms the city has had relocation talks with the Raiders.

"I was asked to meet two weeks ago with the owner of the Oakland Raiders, Mark Davis, and members of his staff," were the words of city manager Sheryl Sculley. "Mr. Davis has expressed interest in a possible relocation of his NFL team to San Antonio and we are engaged in preliminary due diligence." Davis has admitted he was in San Antonio on the weekend of July 18, but claims it was to attend the induction of former Raider Cliff Branch into a "local Hall of Fame." At the very least, Davis is looking to leverage San Antonio against Oakland in the sides' stadium battle.

Steven Jackson is out indefinitely with a left hamstring injury, but is expected to be ready for Week 1.

Speaking after Tuesday's practice, coach Mike Smith claimed the injury isn't serious, but was vague on Jackson's timeline, only saying he's expected to be ready for Week 1. It's not the same hamstring that cost S-Jax four games in 2013, but it's up for debate whether that's good or bad news. No matter how serious, it's a big blow for a player who had reportedly been looking "rejuvenated." It's a reminder that Jackson's advancing age (31) and recent health woes make him a dicey RB2 in fantasy leagues. Rookie Devonta Freeman is worth a late-round flier in all formats.

A source informed Profootballtalk that suspended WR Josh Gordon's failed drug test barely generated a positive, and it would have been a negative had luck been on Gordon's side.

Gordon was summoned for a urine sample. Those samples are split into two bottles, one marked "A" and the other "B." It's completely random which one is marked "A" and which is labeled "B." "A" is tested first, and if it generates a positive test, then "B" is tested. The limit is 15 nanograms-per-milliliter. Gordon's "A" bottle showed a concentration of 16 ng/ml, while his "B" registered a 13.6 ng/ml. The result was a failed test. If urine sample handlers would have by chance marked the "A" bottle "B" and the "B" bottle "A," then Gordon would be free to play. Gordon is appealing the ban, and his hearing will be held on Friday. There seems to be a decent chance he wins.

Jets RBs coach Anthony Lynn confirmed Chris Ivory is the favorite to be the Jets' goal-line back this season.

"If we were playing tomorrow, Chris Ivory would be on the goal line, obviously," Lynn said. "Sometimes in those situations you have an extra defender that you can’t block, and you need a back that can take him on." Ivory weighs over 220 pounds and will serve as the short-yardage vulture while Chris Johnson operates as the Jets' lead back between the twenties. Ivory may still struggle for weekly start-ability in fantasy leagues barring a CJ?K injury.

Odell Beckham (hamstring) will miss at least another week after his MRI came back negative for a tear on Monday.

While it's good he doesn't have a tear, Beckham's strain has lingered since the spring and become a fairly major concern early in training camp. The Giants hope he'll be back by their second preseason game. OBJ is competing for snaps with Jerrel Jernigan behind Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle. If he can't kick the injury, it's conceivable Beckham would open the season as the Giants' No. 4 receiver. We don't see much reason to take a flier on OBJ in re-draft leagues.

Cardinals OLB John Abraham was arrested and charged with DUI in Atlanta on June 29.

This may explain why Abraham, 36, has yet to show up to Cardinals camp. He was previously busted for DWI in 2003 while with the Jets, so Abraham may be staring down a suspension once the legal process plays out. Considering how long it takes for these matters to be resolved, it may not even affect Abraham during the 2014 season. Abraham led Arizona with 11.5 sacks last year.

Panthers first-round WR Kelvin Benjamin has been diagnosed with a bone bruise in his left knee, and is day to day.

According to coach Ron Rivera, there's no structural damage, but Benjamin's knee is "inflamed." The Panthers can breathe a sigh of relief, but Benjamin is still going to miss some all-important practice time as he attempts to get up to speed as the Panthers' de facto No. 1 receiver. He'll be a boom-or-bust option as a rookie. The Panthers' offense will be in dire straits if Benjamin doesn't "boom."

The Buffalo News reports Bills LT Cordy Glenn (illness, NFI) is expected to be ready for Week 1.

However, Glenn "isn't expected back soon." The Bills have released vanishingly-few details about Glenn's condition, but the Buffalo News' team source would be "shocked" if he wasn't ready for Week 1. Seventh-rounder Seantrel Henderson has been running with the first team in Glenn's absence.

The Lions are tabling extension talks with walk-year DT Ndamukong Suh until after the season.

The word comes from team president Tom Lewand, who remains "optimistic" a deal will get done. It's quite a gamble from the Lions, who boast precious little leverage in talks with one of the league's very best players. Thanks to his insane salary-cap number this season, Suh would cost $26.7 million to franchise tag in 2015. That means it's not going to happen, and that Suh will reach the open market if the sides can't hammer out an extension before free agency.

Second-round pick Jeremy Hill has continued to run ahead of BenJarvus Green-Ellis in Bengals camp.

Hill was inserted as the power complement to Gio Bernard at OTAs and hasn't looked back. Per ESPN Bengals reporter Coley Harvey, Green-Ellis "doesn't appear poised to emerge from their shadows any time soon" as he runs with the second- and third-stringers. The Law Firm is now thought to be competing with Rex Burkhead for one roster spot. Even if he sticks, it's clear Hill is the bigger, younger, better option. The LSU rookie is a great value at his current ninth-round ADP, as 200 carries and 7-10 touchdowns are well within reach.
