Dolphins placed WR Brandon Gibson on injured reserve with a torn left patellar tendon, ending his season.

It's a tough blow for a player who had missed just three games since 2009. Gibson is staring at a lengthy rehab, but could be ready for next summer's training camp. Gibson has no guaranteed money remaining on his three-year, $9.755 million contract, but is signed through 2015. Still only 26, he should be back as Miami's No. 3 receiver as long as he can get healthy.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky expects the team to use a "split" backfield between James Starks and Eddie Lacy to begin the season.

Demovsky's theory is that the Packers will share work between Starks and Lacy in the first half of the year, and "ride Lacy down the stretch." Demovsky said the team did "didn't give Starks $3 million a year to not play." Starks was re-signed to a two-year, $6 million deal in March. He became a major asset as a receiver out of the backfield last year and is a big threat to Lacy's PPR value.

Appearing on Mike Clay's Sirius XM Fantasy Show, ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky predicted Davante Adams will open the season as Green Bay's No. 3 receiver.

Demovsky did acknowledge Adams will "feel the heat" from Jeff Janis, Jared Abbrederis, rookie Trevor Davis, and perhaps eventually injured Ty Montgomery. Per Demovsky, Janis is "still a raw guy," and it "seems he's just not there yet." Adams ranked dead last in the NFL in yards per target last season, dropped far too many balls, and generated nothing after the catch. The Packers are still hoping the light flips on for their 2014 second-round investment.

Jay Cutler said he thinks second-year WR Kevin White is "going to be something special."

"It’s just a matter of him letting those athletic gifts come through and him getting comfortable with the system and the verbiage and the splits and everything else that he’s going to learn, and being at a place where he doesn’t have to think and can just go out and play football," Cutler said. "I think once we hit a fast-forward button and get to that point, he’s going to be something special." After missing all of last season with a leg injury, White participated in his first-ever training camp practice this week. By all accounts, he's looked tremendous dating back to the spring. White is currently being drafted as WR30 in MyFantasyLeague.com drafts.

Steve Smith Sr. (Achilles', PUP) revealed he suffered a "double rupture" of his Achilles' last November.

It was the first double rupture renowned foot doctor Robert Anderson had ever seen. It looked like "raw, shredded chicken," according to Smith's wife, and "89" admits the pain was unbearable. Smith Sr. said he was on Oxycontin for 12 days following surgery, and later admitted he had thoughts of giving up his comeback when rehabbing the injury this summer. At 37, it's going to be incredibly tough -- borderline impossible -- for Smith to regain his previous form.

Dolphins DE Dion Jordan has been reinstated from his year-long suspension.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Jordan's reinstatement is conditional. He'll be in counseling and will be reevaluated ahead of the season. This at least gets him in the Dolphins' building and lets him practice and play meaningful preseason snaps after missing all of 2015. Miami is expected to hang onto Jordan and pay him a $1.69 million bonus he's due this week.

No. 3 overall pick DE Joey Bosa will not report for the start of Chargers training camp Friday.

Bosa didn't report to mandatory minicamp in June due to disagreements on offset language and bonus money payout terms in his rookie-deal negotiations. Those remain the sticking points. It's pretty ridiculous it's come to this. Since the new CBA was implemented with a rookie-wage scale, these contracts have become pretty rudimentary. Both sides need to figure it out ASAP.

Dolphins placed RB Arian Foster (Achilles') on the active/PUP list.

According to Dolphins beat writers, it's merely a precaution, as this is pretty typical for veterans coming off serious injuries. Foster has said he's healthy after tearing his Achilles' last year, but Miami is just taking it slow. Consider him day-to-day. When Foster is able to practice, he's expected to run with the starters.

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

There were rumors in May that the Eagles were trying to trade Sproles and didn't want him. This extension suggests 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. Sproles has at least 55 receptions in five of the last six seasons.

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.
