Texans re-signed RB Deji Karim.

Karim, 27 next month, spent the summer with the Texans and rushed for 75 yards on 15 preseason carries. Houston is on its bye week and is dealing with injuries to Arian Foster (hamstring) and Ben Tate (broken ribs). The Texans are expected to add at least one more running back, in addition to Karim.

Eagles signed RB Darren Sproles to a one-year, $4.5 million extension through 2017.

There were rumors earlier this offseason that the Eagles were trying to trade Sproles and didn't want him. This extension proves they were just that. Rumors. Sproles turned 33 last month, but he's shown no signs of slowing down. Due to never having to carry a traditional running back's workload, Sproles has been able to maintain his skills. Expect him to have a similar role under new coach Doug Pederson as he had under Chip Kelly, as a strong pass catcher out of the backfield.

Speaking Thursday, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Kelvin Benjamin (ACL) was in "pretty doggone good form."

Rivera stopped just short of declaring Benjamin all the way back to top form. "Kelvin's retention as far what we're doing, he handled that really well by the way he ran the routes and attacked the football," Rivera said of Benjamin's year on the sideline. "There will be a lot of good things for us to see on tape." Benjamin seems like an obvious overdraft candidate coming off a ridiculously inefficient rookie year followed by a torn ACL, but his WR18 price tag isn't absurd. Someone has to score touchdowns in the Panthers' high-octane offense. WR2 is not out of reach for the third-year pro.

Chris Clemons has informed the Seahawks of his retirement.

A 2003 undrafted free agent, Clemons is hanging up his cleats after 13 seasons. He's calling it quits with 69 sacks compiled over 162 games. He tallied at least 11 quarterback takedowns every year from 2010-12 in Seattle. He was going to serve as a situational pass rusher this season. Clemons turns 35 in October.

Bills walk-year CB Stephon Gilmore reported for training camp on Thursday.

The No. 10 overall pick of the 2012 draft is understandably dying for a new contract, but will play nice in his walk year. It could be a gesture aimed at keeping talks positive, and avoiding the dreaded franchise tag next spring.

The Indianapolis Star calls is "unmistakably clear" that the Colts' "go-to lineup will feature three wide receivers."

The Colts have been two-tight end heavy for the majority of the Andrew Luck era, but with Coby Fleener departed for New Orleans and Phillip Dorsett waiting in the wings, going three-wide is a no-brainer. Dorsett figures to be boom or bust behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief, but WR4 value is a real possibility.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians says he intends to determine his backfield touches "game to game."

"That'll go game to game," Arians claimed when asked how often David Johnson would be getting the ball. "If he's hot, he's staying in there. But there's no script right now." They're alarming comments on their face, but almost certainly just coachspeak. The Cardinals' website considers Johnson a shoo-in bell cow. Perhaps a "hot" Chris Johnson or Andre Ellington could occasionally steal a series, but we're confident in David's ability to dominate touches to the degree that he'll be an elite RB1.

Steelers placed TE Ladarius Green (ankle surgery) on the active/PUP list.

There isn't a lot known about Green's status. He underwent an operation in January, the severity of which is unclear, and missed all of the offseason program. We'd expect he will be cleared soon, but that's just a guess until we get more information. Green will be a high-TD-upside TE1 if his health cooperates.

Jimmy Graham (patellar tendon) won't be ready for the start of camp.

The Seahawks have been adamant that Graham will be ready for Week 1, but we'd consider him a candidate for the reserve/PUP list until proven otherwise. Graham can't be trusted as more than a flier TE2 in fantasy drafts.

Thomas Rawls (ankle) won't practice on the first day of training camp, but the Seahawks remain undecided on the active/PUP list.

Rawls had previously insisted he'd be full-go for the start of camp. Either way, coach Pete Carroll maintains Rawls will be ready for Week 1. It's concerning Rawls still isn't 100 percent after going down last December, but it's been the belief all along that he will be ready for the opener. Barring a setback, Rawls can be drafted as an upside RB2.

The Falcons want to get second-year RB Tevin Coleman more involved as a pass catcher this season.

At least once a week, the Falcons talk about getting last year's third-rounder more touches. "They’re finding more ways to get the backs out there and get them the ball," Coleman said. "So it’s going to be exciting for us to be back there and get the ball more than just running." Catching the ball is one of Devonta Freeman's fantasy firewalls after he notched 73 receptions last season, but Coleman had decent hands in college. The Falcons seem deadly serious about having more of a committee this season, but Freeman's red zone and third-down work still have him on the RB1/2 borderline.

Browns placed DE Desmond Bryant (torn pectoral) on the reserve/NFI list, ending his season.

The move was expected after Bryant went down in a workout earlier this month. Bryant has been a quality rotational lineman since coming over from the Raiders two years ago, but is going on 31 and due $7 million next season. He probably won't be back at that price.
