Jeremy Maclin tweaked his left knee at Monday's practice, but is expected to be fine.

Maclin is recovering from a torn right ACL. Maclin went down in a heap, but "bounced up from the turf and walked back to the huddle" after only a few moments. Monday's incident isn't a concern for Maclin's 2014 status, but a reminder of his relative fragility.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones expects a decision "imminently" in the league's Ezekiel Elliott investigation.

"Of course, I don’t know what that will be and wouldn’t want to have conjecture in any way involving that," Jones added. "There’s no domestic violence involved here." Rumors about a potentially lengthy suspension have been running rampant, but the reality is, most of the parties involved seem in the dark. Fantasy owners can only sit tight and wait.

The Chargers are "cautiously optimistic" first-round WR Mike Williams can avoid surgery on his troublesome back.

"He's been responding well," GM Tom Telesco said Thursday. "The path, right now, is rehab and strengthening. That's good news, obviously." Williams has "responded positively" to a second epidural. Even with the good news, Williams remains without a timeline for a return. He's highly questionable for Week 1, and perhaps still the entire season.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said second-round QB DeShone Kizer is progressing faster than expected.

"He's understanding the offense," Jackson said. Reporter Mary Kay Cabot believes that if Kizer "continues at this clip," he will "soon be taking most of the first-team reps." Cabot still considers Cody Kessler a slight favorite for No. 1 duties. The Browns seem open to Kizer winning the starting job if he shows them the things they need to see this summer.

ESPN's David Newton reports the Panthers are peppering Christian McCaffrey with "short passes and screens" in practice.

After observing on Thursday, Newton reports it's "obvious" the Panthers have "big plans" for their first-round pick. Per Newton, McCaffrey is "so fast on his cuts that it leaves (defenders) grasping for air." McCaffrey is an exceptional runner, but it's become clear the Panthers view the passing game as the best way for him to make a rookie impact. It will be a big change for an offense that hasn't been big on screens or running back targets under Cam Newton.

Sammy Watkins (foot) has avoided the PUP list to begin training camp, and will practice on Thursday.

The Bills will "manage" Watkins' reps, but coach Sean McDermott is "pleased" with his star wideout's condition. Watkins will be brought along gently through the preseason, but barring a setback, will be ready for the opener.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports suspended Steelers WR Martavis Bryant hopes to finalize his reinstatement "soon."

We're sure he does. Final reinstatement from suspension can be an arduous, tedious process in the NFL. Anything before mid-August should be considered good news. We've yet to see anything to suggest Bryant won't be back by Week 1.

Unsigned franchise player Le'Veon Bell was absent for the first day of Steelers camp on Thursday.

#AsExpected. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported 10 days ago that Bell may not report until "mid-to-late August." The Steelers probably don't mind too much. Bell has shown a tremendous ability to hit the ground running after long layoffs, and will avoid injury risk in camp. It's not a strategy that works for a lot of players, but Bell seems to be an exception. Bell is fully expected to report before Week 1.

Speaking Thursday, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Jordan Reed (toe) "may have twisted an ankle" overcompensating for his toe issue.

In other words, Reed twisted an ankle overcompensating for his toe issue. Reed has dealt with ankle ailments in the past, but they haven't been one of his signature issues. The Redskins have said Reed will miss only a week of camp, but that seems unlikely. The 'Skins have zero reason to push the envelope with their star tight end.

Saints signed OG Orlando Franklin to a one-year contract.

Franklin's addition gives the Saints options as they mix and match in LT Terron Armstead's (shoulder) absence. Franklin was a 16-game starter for the Chargers last season after missing six games in 2015. His presence gives the Saints the option of kicking LG Andrus Peat outside to tackle while Armstead is sidelined. Right now, first-rounder Ryan Ramczyk is penciled in.

49ers GM John Lynch praised Carlos Hyde on Thursday.

Hyde weighed in at 228 pounds, his lightest weight since high school. "Carlos Hyde looks tremendous," Lynch gushed. "He's really dedicated himself." It's a new tact from the 49ers, who spent much of the offseason openly questioning Hyde's fit in new coach Kyle Shanahan's system. Things have gotten so murky that NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal passed along on a recent podcast that Hyde could be a surprise release. For now, the 49ers have decided to play nice. Buttering Hyde up and eliciting a strong camp and preseason would make Hyde a more attractive trade target.

Jordan Matthews (knee) has declared himself "full go" for training camp.

Matthews said he's officially been cleared. He refused to say if he was dealing with more than tendinitis. Matthews figures to receive plenty of early off days, but the major concerns about his knee have been put to bed. With Alshon Jeffery in the fold, Matthews' fantasy arrow is pointing downward after a disappointing 2016.
