Shonn Greene (knee) suited up for Monday's practice.

Greene's Friday "injury" was just a tweak. Greene's biggest preseason concern remains rookie Bishop Sankey seizing chairman duties of the Titans' committee. Unless all you're looking for is potential touchdowns, Greene is a weak RB3/4 in re-draft leagues.

Geno Smith has thrown zero interceptions through the the first four days of training camp.

Browns CB Justin Gilbert continues to run behind Pierre Desir at camp.

Gilbert was the No. 8 overall pick in 2014 out of Oklahoma State while Desir went 127th overall out of D-II Lindenwood. That hasn't stopped Desir from earning the No. 3 job on the depth chart, behind starters Joe Haden and Tramon Williams. Gilbert might be the biggest disappointment in the 2014 draft if it wasn't for Johnny Manziel, who the Browns took 22nd overall that year.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Michael Crabtree has been the "star" of the Raiders' first three training camp practices.

If your eyes rolled after reading this one, you're not alone. Crabtree looked every bit a declining player in 2014 with San Francisco, relegated to rotational snaps and dropping passes at a career-worst clip. Crabtree is still only 27 years old, however, and it's conceivable his diminished on-field ineffectiveness was symptomatic of the 49ers' franchise dysfunction. From a fantasy standpoint, Crabtree certainly doesn't lack target opportunity in Oakland.

Bills suspended OL coach Aaron Kromer six games for conduct detrimental to the team.

He's been suspended without pay. Although charges were ultimately dropped against Kromer for allegedly assaulting a kid over the placement of beach chairs, the Bills determined that Kromer's involvement in the incident was enough for relatively harsh discipline. Kromer will return on October 19.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport was told Trent Richardson has a "50 percent" chance of making the Raiders' 53-man roster.

T-Rich opened training camp on the active/NFI list, suggesting he failed his conditioning test. Latavius Murray and Roy Helu are locks for the 53, while FB Marcel Reece can handle the load in a pinch. Richardson may be competing directly with UDFA Michael Dyer for a roster spot. Until T-Rich gets back on the practice field, his odds are going to appear even less than 50:50.

The Buffalo News considers Matt Cassel the "leader in the clubhouse right now" in the Bills' quarterback derby.

Cassel hasn't been particularly sharp in early-camp practices, but he's been more consistent than E.J. Manuel, who has reportedly appeared overwhelmed. Tyrod Taylor would give the Bills' offense a potentially-exciting read-option element, but his passing leaves much to be desired. Regardless of which player "wins" the quarterback battle, his job will be strictly avoiding turnovers in 2015.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Sunday he envisions Andre Ellington handling 20 touches per game this season.

Arians emphasized that Ellington's touches will involve receptions, and not just carries. Ellington handled over 22 touches per game last season, but averaged an anemic 3.3 yards per carry and broke down physically, ending the year on injured reserve. The Cardinals are miscasting Ellington as a true feature back. Rookie David Johnson will make his case for a backfield role in preseason games. Johnson is essentially a bigger, more athletic version of Ellington with arguably even more-dynamic pass-catching ability.

ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer suggests Joseph Randle could handle 15 carries per game this season, with Darren McFadden taking ten and Lance Dunbar getting five.

Archer expects Randle to fare "fine" as the Cowboys' replacement for DeMarco Murray, and concedes the weekly touch distribution "is subject to change based on the hot-hand theory." If Randle handled 15 carries per game and stayed healthy, he would finish at 240 for the season. McFadden is a better pass blocker than Randle, while Dunbar is arguably Dallas' best receiving back.

Appearing on Sirius XM Radio, Ben Roethlisberger stated that Markus Wheaton will be the Steelers' No. 2 wide receiver this season and predicted Wheaton will be Pittsburgh's "breakout player."

This should deal a blow to Martavis Bryant's skyrocketing ADP. "I think Markus Wheaton is our breakout player of the year," said Ben. "I want that. I want him to have that pressure. Because when we're in two wide receivers, he's our No. 2. And we're asking him to play outside. And we go three wide receivers, we ask him to move inside." Bryant's elbow procedure won't help his chances of earning a consistent role in two-wide receiver sets. Wheaton is coming off a highly disappointing 2014 campaign, but will be worth a late-round flier in all fantasy formats if he indeed keeps a full-time role in one of the NFL's premier offenses.

Sam Bradford (knee) has been fully cleared for 11-on-11 drills.

Bradford is finally ready to let it rip after being limited at OTAs and minicamp. A recent independent study conducted by the Eagles showed Bradford has about a 10-to-12 percent chance of re-injuring his ACL, though coach Chip Kelly won't be putting any restrictions on his new franchise QB. Bradford shed his knee brace Sunday, another sign that he's back to 100 percent. Expect Bradford to begin creeping up fantasy draft boards in short order.

Panthers waived/injured WR Stephen Hill.

Hill injured his right knee at Saturday's practice and has since been diagnosed with a torn ACL. Paul Browning will take Hill's spot on the active roster. The 24-year-old has never logged more than 24 catches in a season and wouldn't have been much of a factor even if he had stayed healthy.
