A source tells CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco that "it's undetermined" if Glenn Dorsey (biceps) will miss the entire season.

This conflicts with a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, who said that Dorsey has already been ruled out for the year. Dorsey will continue to be evaluated over the next few days before a decision is made. It's possible he could be placed on I.R./designated for return. With Ian Williams (ankle) out indefinitely, Quinton Dial, Demarcus Dobbs and Tony Jerod-Eddie are candidates for snaps at nose tackle.

ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher considers Spencer Ware the team's No. 2 back behind Jamaal Charles.

Although Charcandrick West made flashier plays, Ware severely outperformed him last season and is a better stylistic complement to Charles as a between-the-tackles pounder. There is a conceivable scenario in which Ware could offer some standalone value this year, especially if he handles short-yardage and goal-line work. Ware is a better late-round dart throw than West in fantasy drafts.

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells says the team wants to "lighten" Frank Gore's workload this season.

It makes sense with Gore entering his age-33 season, but the backs by whom Gore's workload would be "lightened" are unclear. Appearing on Mike Clay's Sirius show, Wells mentioned UDFA Josh Ferguson "first" when asked about a change-of-pace option behind Gore. Ultimately, Gore's workload will likely be dictated by his effectiveness. He should open the year as an every-down back.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini expects the Jets to use a "time-share system" in the backfield with Matt Forte and Bilal Powell mixing in.

He later suggested Khiry Robinson could emerge as a short-yardage/goal-line specialist. Powell was highly effective in his first season under OC Chan Gailey last year and certainly earned an every-week role in the Jets' offense. Powell should open the season as a flex option in both PPR and non-PPR leagues. He would offer low-end RB1 upside if 30-year-old Forte breaks down or misses time.

DetroitLions.com’s Tim Twentyman said to "watch out" for WR T.J. Jones this season.

Twentyman reports Matthew Stafford singled out Jones as a breakout candidate this spring. Jones has earned rave reviews all offseason and was even called the "obvious star" of OTAs. The Lions are set at the top of the depth chart with Golden Tate and Marvin Jones, but the No. 3 role is up for grabs. Jones appears to have a good shot to win the job.

Sammy Watkins said he is "right where [he] needs to be" in his recovery from offseason foot surgery.

Watkins does not know when he will get back on the field or how much work he will do in training camp, but it has been clear for several weeks his recovery is trending in the right direction. The Bills will likely take it slow with their playmaker, but it is possible he sees action in the preseason. Unless he suffers a setback, Watkins should be good to go for Week 1.

Jerry Jones said second-round LB Jaylon Smith's (knee) progress is "undetermined."

Smith suffered serious nerve damage when he tore his ACL and LCL in January. ESPN's Ed Werder reported last month Smith has not seen any "significant improvement" in his damaged nerve, but Jones contends the nerve is healing as expected. "The rejuvenation of the nerve that would help him get in position to actually hit the playing field is not complete," Jones said, "but it is not behind." There is almost zero chance Smith plays this season, and it is not a given he ever gets back on the field.

TitansOnline's Jim Wyatt expects DeMarco Murray to be the "workhorse" this season.

The Titans have consistently praised Murray's attitude and work ethic since acquiring him from the Eagles in March, and Wyatt reports the team expects him to "return to form" this season. While that may be true, they did not spend a second-round pick on Derrick Henry for nothing. Both backs should get work, and Henry could see a lot more than expected if Murray struggles again this season. Murray is ridiculously overpriced as the RB18.

Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said the team has not "totally ruled out" Lance Dunbar (knee) participating in training camp.

Coming off a devastating October knee injury which included a patellar tendon tear, Dunbar was fully expected to begin the season on the reserve/PUP list. That remains a possibility, but it is clear the Cowboys are happy with his recovery. "He’s worked so hard and come so far, so fast – a lot faster than anyone dreamed he could come," Jones said. "We’ve also got to do what’s right in his best interest and certainly not jeopardize any of the hard work he’s put into this. But I think we’ve got a great look at what he can [do] for us." Dunbar could eat into Ezekiel Elliott's passing-down work if he proves healthy.

Arian Foster said he expects to be utilized heavily in the passing game with the Dolphins.

Foster was a more effective receiver than rusher last season. "Adam (Gase) knows how to use a running back out of the backfield, which is my best quality, route running, catching the ball out of the backfield," Foster said. "He knows how to steer the ship, man. I'm happy to have a seat on the boat." It's always refreshing to see late-career players aware of their own late-career strengths. Foster also called himself "fully healthy" nine months removed from last year's Achilles' tear. While his health remains an ongoing concern, it's not a stretch to call Foster the early favorite to lead Dolphins running backs in passing-game targets.

Profootballtalk.com reports Redskins GM Scot McCloughan did not meet Kirk Cousins' asking price in long-term talks because McCloughan believes he can find a cheaper replacement for Cousins "at some point in the next year or two."

In other words, the Skins view Cousins as a replacement-level quarterback. Specifically, Florio wrote McCloughan "believes he can find a comparable quarterback who will be much cheaper than Cousins, at some point in the next year or two." Florio reported Cousins wanted $44 million guaranteed at signing, far more than the $24 million McCloughan was willing to commit. As much as any quarterback in the league, Cousins has a ton riding on the 2016 season.

Brandon Marshall says free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick hasn't replied to his text messages for two weeks and said, "it's scaring me."

"I don't know what's going on," Marshall said. "Me and Fitz talk every day, all the time, but I texted him the last two weeks three times and there's no response. The only thing that he can do to make this right is to say he was on vacation, ‘I was out of the country.’ It's not like him. It's scaring me right now. It's scaring me that my guy hasn't texted me back." NFL Network reported the Jets' standoff with Fitzpatrick could last well into August. After Fitzpatrick led them to a ten-win season and ranked top ten in passing TDs, the Jets' locker room will be an interesting place when camp opens with Geno Smith as the starting quarterback.
