According to ESPN New York's Rich Cimini, "there is concern" about Matt Forte's (knee) health "going forward."

It sounds like this could be more than a one-week absence. "I've been playing with swelling for a while," Forte conceded. "It just got to the point where it's getting significantly worse. Obviously, going from a Sunday game to a Thursday game there's less recovery time and it just got worse." Forte aggravated his longstanding knee problem in last Thursday night's win over the Bills. He is "hopeful" the swelling will subside during the Jets' Week 11 bye. In the meantime, Bilal Powell is a borderline fantasy RB1 and Elijah McGuire should be rostered in all leagues.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Broncos OLB Shane Ray did not have an additional surgery on his wrist over the summer.

Ray was expected to undergo "bone fusion" surgery on his troublesome wrist, but his doctor did not believe the procedure was necessary. Ray is still likely to open training camp on the PUP list, but it is possible he is ready for Week 1. After Denver declined his 2019 option, Ray is entering the final year of his rookie deal.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Mitchell Trubisky's early-camp performance could "best be described as inconsistent."

The Tribune's Rich Campbell says Trubisky's work both at spring practices and in the first few practices of training camp has been a "roller coaster on a play-to-play basis." Campbell cautions this isn't reason for alarm, but it's a reminder that Trubisky is learning an entirely new offense the second-year quarterback has admitted is much more complex than outgoing John Fox and Dowell Loggains' scheme. Trubisky should get more preseason-game reps than most quarterbacks. The Bears started camp early because they play the Ravens in the Hall of Fame Game on August 2.

Titans placed OLB Kevin Dodd on the did-not-report list.

Dodd skipped OTAs after the Titans traded up for his replacement in Harold Landry. A failed 2016 second-round pick, Dodd has given the team just 270 snaps since they drafted him and may have played his final down in Tennessee. Brian Orakpo, Derrick Morgan, and Landry are the team's top-three outside rushers.

Giants signed No. 2 overall pick Saquon Barkley to a four-year, $31.2 million contract, including a $20.76 million signing bonus.

The deal is fully guaranteed, includes a fifth-year club option, and pays Barkley $15 million at time of signing. Barkley is the highest running back drafted since Reggie Bush and Ronnie Brown went No. 2 in back-to-back years in 2006 and 2005, respectively. Barkley's rookie-year workload projection is one of the highest in the NFL. He warrants first-round selection in re-draft leagues.

Ravens OC Marty Mornhinweg said after Sunday's training camp practice that first-round pick Lamar Jackson is "way ahead of the curve."

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley wrote that Jackson has shown "accelerated improvement" in his quest to start camp fast. "He's done an outstanding job up to date," said Mornhinweg. "He's way ahead of the curve now." Jackson got experience with pro-style concepts under Bobby Petrino at Louisville, and in Mornhinweg (Michael Vick) and assistant HC Greg Roman (Colin Kaepernick, Tyrod Taylor), the Ravens have two coaches on staff with extensive backgrounds working with dual-threat quarterbacks. Per Hensley, Jackson has already passed Robert Griffin III on the depth chart behind Joe Flacco.

KSTP St. Paul reports Vikings OL coach Tony Sparano has died at age 56.

Sparano died at his home Sunday morning. He was due to report to Vikings training camp on Wednesday. The long-time coach had been with Minnesota since 2016. Sparano served as the Dolphins' head coach for four seasons, leading the team to a division title in 2008. He also filled in as the Raiders' interim coach after Dennis Allen was fired midseason in 2014. Sparano leaves behind a wife, a daughter and two sons.

Mike Klis of 9 News Denver expects Devontae Booker to start Week 1 against the Seahawks.

Booker has developed a "good command" of Denver's offensive playbook while also showing well in pass protection. Klis believes those traits give Booker a leg up on third-round rookie Royce Freeman, a 230-pound bruiser and arguably the most prolific ball-carrier in Oregon's history. The top of Denver's running back depth chart could seesaw back and forth this year, but ultimately we'd expect the team to adopt a committee approach.

Patriots signed first-round RB Sony Michel to a four-year contract.

Training camp opens for Patriots rookies on Sunday, which prompted Michel to finally sign his deal. As with all first-rounders, the contract comes with a fifth-year team option. Michel cruised to 1,227 yards and 16 rushing touchdowns at Georgia last year while splitting work with Nick Chubb, who was taken four picks after him in April's draft. In New England, the 23-year-old will fill a committee role alongside Rex Burkhead and pass-catcher James White.

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times expects Chris Carson to open training camp as the Seahawks' lead running back.

It was widely assumed that role would go to first-round rookie Rashaad Penny, though Condotta, a long-time Seahawks beat writer, sees it playing out a bit differently. His expectation is that Penny will fill a complementary role behind Carson while also working as a return specialist. Carson averaged a respectable 4.2 yards per carry before he got hurt last season, but it's still hard to envision the Seahawks playing him over Penny, who led FBS with 2,248 rushing yards a year ago. Obviously the Carson/Penny competition will be worth monitoring throughout training camp.

Free agent Bashaud Breeland has visits with the Raiders and Chiefs next week.

Breeland met with the Colts and Arizona after his three-year deal with the Panthers voided, but this is his first interest since May. The Raiders have talked up Gareon Conley as a starter but Breeland would be an upgrade opposite Rashaan Melvin, while the Chiefs have question marks at corner after trading Marcus Peters. Four months removed from foot surgery, Breeland is likely going to have to settle for less than the $8M annually he landed earlier this offseason.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco "remains open to the possibility" of re-signing free agent Antonio Gates.

"There's no update right now," Telesco said in a radio appearance. "We'll see where things go next week. We've got a couple different possibilities. We had talked about one obviously with Gates, and we'll see where that goes." Gates only wants to play for the Chargers, so if they don't sign him he'll retire. There should be clarity on Gates' status when training camp opens next week.
