Jordan Cameron (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 16 against the Jets.

As expected. Cameron missed the entire week of practice after suffering a concussion last Sunday. Gary Barnidge and MarQueis Gray will handle tight-end duties for Cleveland. Fantasy owners in a bind need to be looking at tight ends like Ryan Griffin, Dennis Pitta, and Delanie Walker to fill in. Consider Cameron week-to-week, and he can be dropped in re-draft leagues.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky reports walk-year WR Jordy Nelson is seeking "at least" $10 million per season in long-term talks.

Nelson has no intention of handing out another discount. Nelson has been one of the league's most underpaid players since signing his four-year, $13.989 million deal in the fall of 2011. The $10 million demand shouldn't surprise the Packers, who have roughly $13 million in cap space. A deal could be worked out before Week 1.

Speaking Thursday, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer confirmed Matt Cassel is the team's No. 1 quarterback heading into camp.

That's been the expectation all along. No. 32 pick Teddy Bridgewater should give Cassel a run for his money, but the Vikes appear content to go into Week 1 with the veteran under center. However, we fully expect Bridgewater to make starts this season, likely early.

Browns activated RB Terrance West from the active/non-football injury list.

The rumor was that West failed his conditioning test, but he denied that. It doesn't matter now. He's on the active roster, working out with the team and will be ready to battle Ben Tate for the starting running back job when full-squad work begins Saturday. West's brief stint on active/NFI will have no impact on his progress.

Jonathan Stewart pulled his hamstring prior to training camp and will miss the first 1-2 weeks.

Coach Ron Rivera says the pull isn't as serious as some hamstring injuries, and added Stewart will remain on the active roster. Still, it's no way to start a season for a player that's missed so much practice time due to nagging injuries the past few years. DeAngelo Williams will soak up first-team reps as he surges to the front of this committee attack.

Coach Chuck Pagano said he'd like to have a "bell cow" at running back this season.

In the same breath, Pagano said he isn't against employing a running back by committee. The message is clear. Ideally, Trent Richardson will find the form that made him the third overall pick in the 2012 draft, and become a 260-carry workhorse this season. But he'll be on a short leash, with Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard both ready to fill roles if Richardson faceplants again. For now, we've placed T-Rich 26th among running backs in our Draft Guide -- a ranking that will rise if he separates in camp.

Suspended Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon was arrested on marijuana possession charges Wednesday night.

According to police in Edmond, Oklahoma, Blackmon was stopped for a traffic violation and officers could smell an odor of marijuana coming from the car. After a search, marijuana was found and Blackmon was taken into custody. It's the latest transgression for the Jaguars wideout, who was suspended indefinitely last October following repeated violations of the substance-abuse policy. This certainly won't help Blackmon as he aims to get reinstated for the 2015 season. Blackmon has now been suspended three times since 2010.

NFL suspended Ray Rice for the first two games of the 2014 season.

Rice was arraigned on felony aggravated assault charges following an ugly April domestic incident with his fiancee (now wife) at an Atlantic City hotel. He avoided trial by completing a pretrial-intervention program, and this is his first violation of the league's personal conduct policy. Still, it's a bad look for the NFL as Rice gets off lightly while Josh Gordon faces a 16-game ban for marijuana. As for the on-field fallout, Bernard Pierce will serve as the feature back and quality RB2 against the Bengals in Week 1 and Steelers in Week 2. Rice will have to show improved form to wrestle back his job after looking done in 2013 (3.08 YPC).

Eagles LG Evan Mathis is not holding out.

Mathis created a stir around draft time when he asked for a raise on the five-year, $25 million deal he signed in 2012. The Eagles responded by allowing the All-Pro to seek a trade. That's all water under the bridge now, as 32-year-old Mathis attended the offseason program and has now reported to training camp. He'll be a major cog in one of the game's best offensive lines.

Falcons signed WR Roddy White to new four-year contract worth up to $30 million.

It's a three-year extension with $10 million guaranteed. White was entering the final year of a six-year, $48 million deal he signed in August of 2009. Now he's tied to the Falcons through 2017 and will get $18 million over the next two years. It's a long deal for a 32-year-old receiver, but White showed he has plenty left in the tank by averaging 8.6 catches for 100.4 yards with two touchdowns over the final five weeks of last season. The career-long Falcon will remain a focal point of the offense along with Julio Jones, forming one of the game's best receiving duos. White's current fantasy ADP is the fourth-/fifth-round turn, where he is a value pick with lower-end WR1 potential, particularly in PPR leagues.

Josh Gordon will appeal his one-year suspension in a meeting with the NFL on Aug. 1.

Gordon's appeal doesn't have much teeth. Since the latest failed drug test that triggered Gordon's ban, a "passenger" in his car was cited for marijuana and he was arrested in North Carolina on suspicion of DWI. It would be a shock if the 16-game suspension is reduced. The Browns are just hoping to get Gordon back in 2015. He led the NFL in receiving yards last season and became the first player in league history with back-to-back 200-yard receiving games.

Coach Mike Zimmer said Cordarrelle Patterson will continue to return kickoffs despite his increased offensive role.

Patterson was the best kick returner in the NFL last season. "We want our best players to get their hands on the ball as much as possible," Zimmer said. "We’re not going to keep him from returning kicks because he is such a dangerous weapon there." Zimmer suggested the jury remains out on whether Patterson will become an equally dynamic wide receiver. "For him to take the next step," Zimmer said, "we’re going to have to see how he gets off a jam and the things that people will try to do to take him away."
