Giants interim coach Steve Spagnuolo is "hopeful" Sterling Shepard (hamstring) will play against the Cowboys after returning to limited practice on Thursday.

Shepard is trending in the right direction, but we wouldn't yet take his status for granted. With Orlando Scandrick (back) sidelined for the Cowboys, Shepard will be a WR2 if he can suit up.

Jets TEs coach Jimmie Johnson says second-year TE Jordan Leggett is over the knee issue that cost him his entire rookie season.

"He doesn’t worry about his knee," Johnson said. "He has those issues behind him now. So now, we can move forward and get back to playing football." Although fourth-rounder Chris Herndon is in the fold, Herndon is coming off a knee injury of his own. Johnson's comments have also made it sound like the Jets will be counting on Herndon more as a blocker in the early going. Leggett is in the lead when it comes to soaking up Austin Seferian-Jenkins' lost targets.

Jets WRs coach Karl Dorrell expects Robby Anderson to "explode and become a more complete player" this season.

"There are some different roles on our team, doing secondary jobs to help other people out and I think that is something he will learn and grow with," Dorrell said. "He’ll be better at that now that he knows the scope of it. I think Robby is really going to explode and become a more complete player because of it." 59 yards shy of 1,000 last season, Anderson escaped a host of off-the-field issues with minimal punishment from the law, but he could still be facing a short league-mandated suspension.

In their new "Proper Anthem Conduct" policy, the Dolphins reserve the right to suspend players who protest on the field up to four games.

Dolphins Kenny Stills and Jordan Phillips both knelt during the national anthem last season. Per the team's new policy — which has not been released publicly — the Dolphins "could" fine or suspend any player who protests. "Could" leaves a lot of wiggle room, of course. The league and its teams seem to be doing whatever it takes to keep this story in the news. It is a baffling approach.

Vikings signed No. 30 overall pick CB Mike Hughes to a four-year contract.

As is the case with all first-rounders, Hughes' deal includes a fifth-year team option for 2022. A college journeyman, Hughes averaged 31.9 yards per kickoff return and 16.6 yards on punts, all told scoring three return TDs. Hughes also intercepted five passes at corner and allowed an anemic 43.9 passer rating when targeted (PFF). A 73rd-percentile SPARQ athlete who specializes in press coverage, Hughes’ biggest drawback is his size (5'10). He should begin his Vikings career in the slot while contributing on punt returns.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda (active/PUP) is recovering from shoulder surgery.

When Yanda was first placed on the active/PUP list it was thought to be because of the ankle injury that ended his 2017 season in Week 2. Instead, it's related to a January shoulder operation. Yanda's ankle is apparently "fine." "We’re going to be cautious with him," coach John Harbaugh said, while also emphasizing that Yanda will be ready for Week 1. He's week to week.

Allen Robinson (knee) is full-go for the start of Bears' training camp.

Robinson avoided the active/PUP list, meaning he is practicing without restriction. It's still possible the Bears hold their new No. 1 receiver out of some preseason action, but he should see some snaps on the exhibition field. Robinson will be exactly one year removed from his injury in Week 1.

Bears first-round ILB Roquan Smith remained absent from training camp on Thursday.

Smith missed Monday's rookie reporting day and remained absent when veterans showed up on Thursday. GM Ryan Pace said he was optimistic Smith would report "soon." With rookie salaries strictly structured, holdouts are usually related to offset language.

The Athletic's Jeff Schultz reports the Falcons have informed Julio Jones he will not receive a new contract this year.

Jones skipped OTAs and minicamp to show displeasure with his contract, which makes him the league's eighth-highest-paid receiver behind Sammy Watkins, Jarvis Landry, and Davante Adams, among others. The Falcons told Jones they had "not budgeted" for Jones to receive a raise, and are hopeful he will report to training camp on time. Jones would put himself at risk of daily fines by skipping practices. LT Jake Matthews, FS Ricardo Allen, and DT Grady Jarrett are all considered higher-priority extension candidates; Julio is signed through 2020. The Falcons open training camp on July 27.

Randall Cobb (foot) is no longer sporting a walking boot.

Cobb recently held a football camp and had no restrictions while working with kids. "I look great, I feel great," he told reporters. Cobb also indicated he'll be all systems go for the start of training camp. Locked in as the Packers' No. 2 wideout behind Davante Adams, Cobb is a value pick in the eighth round.

Saints signed RB Shane Vereen, formerly of the Giants.

This is our first blurb on Vereen since last Week 17, showing just how little interest he had as a free agent the previous four months. Now 29, Vereen didn't make much of an impact in his three years with the Giants after spending the first four in New England. A satellite back who offers very little as a runner, Vereen has 221 career catches for 1,865 yards and 11 scores. He's no lock to make the Saints' roster and is only insurance behind Alvin Kamara and company.

A Cowboys source told the Athletic's Calvin Watkins the Earl Thomas-to-Cowboys rumors are "a lot of media hype."

"Seattle not giving him away and we’re not overpaying," the source added. This has only gained steam due to Thomas' own voiced desire to play for Dallas back in his home state. The 29-year-old has threatened a holdout this summer if Seattle doesn't extend or trade him as he heads into his contract year. The Seahawks likely want at least a second-rounder and more for Thomas.
