Second-round WR Devin Smith suffered broken ribs in the first practice of Jets camp and may miss all of the preseason.

Smith has been hospitalized with the painful injury. It should be emphasized that Smith broke multiple ribs, not just one. The injury occurred while Smith was "making a leaping catch" in Friday's practice. The 37th pick in this year's draft, Smith was going to compete for third receiver duties with Jeremy Kerley behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. While we didn't have high hopes for Smith's re-draft league prospects, so much lost practice time in OC Chan Gailey's system may prevent Smith from making any meaningful early-season impact.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms the Cowboys' No. 1 running back job is "Joseph Randle's to lose."

Per RapSheet, the Cowboys expect "big things" from Randle, and love his "vision and explosiveness." After struggling mightily as a fifth-round rookie in 2013, Randle indeed showed improved burst as a sophomore, averaging nearly seven yards on 51 carries. Randle remains a high-risk fantasy investment based on his extremely-limited track record. His ADP is creeping toward round three.

Todd Gurley (knee) is participating in individual drills early in Rams training camp.

Per ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner, there is "no timetable" for Gurley to begin practicing in 11-on-11s. In the meantime, Tre Mason will operate as St. Louis' first-team back with Benny Cunningham mixing in on passing downs. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch expects Mason to open 2015 as the lead ball carrier.

Patriots LB Dane Fletcher is expected to open the season on reserve/PUP.

Reserve/PUP would cost Fletcher the first six games of the season. A core special teamer and reserve linebacker, Fletcher tore his ACL late last year. He finished 2014 with 39 tackles and a half-sack, making four starts.

Damien Williams opened Dolphins camp as the second-team back behind Lamar Miller.

Williams is ahead of rookie Jay Ajayi. Although Ajayi was a hyped prospect before the draft, Williams is no slouch in his own right. He was a standout in the passing game as a rookie and will be a significant obstacle for Ajayi to overcome. If Miller went down, Williams and Ajayi might form a two-man RBBC.

Vikings OC Norv Turner said that Mike Harris has made a "surprisingly good" transition to right guard.

Harris is the favorite to start at right guard after opening training camp with the starters. He’ll face competition from rookie Tyrus Thompson, Joe Berger, and David Yankey. Fourth-round pick T.J. Clemmings has moved back to tackle.

Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland was carted off with an MCL injury in Friday's training camp practice.

Breeland is expected to be out 4-6 weeks. He'll miss all of training camp, but has a chance to return following his one game suspension. With Breeland sidelined, DeAngelo Hall should open the season opposite Chris Culliver.

Texans released OT Will Yeatman.

Yeatman, 27, has missed most of the last two seasons to injuries. The Texans don't have any proven options behind Duane Brown and Derek Newton, so it's not a good sign for his future. Yeatman shouldn't draw interest as more than training camp depth.

Charges against Bills OL coach Aaron Kromer have been dropped.

Kromer was facing a misdemeanor battery charge for allegedly assaulting a minor. The Bills are expected to suspend Kromer without pay to start the season, but he should be allowed to coach at training camp. Kromer is currently on administrative leave.

49ers placed ILB Michael Wilhoite (hamstring) on the active/NFI list.

Coach Jim Tomsula doesn’t consider Wilhoite’s injury a long-term concern. Wilhoite will start opposite ILB NaVorro Bowman when healthy.

NFL suspended Saints TE Orson Charles one game for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Charles was arrested last April for a road rage incident. He won't count against the Week 1 roster if he makes the team. 24-year-old Charles is competing for a role behind Josh Hill and Ben Watson.

Carson Palmer (knee) will have no restrictions in training camp.

Palmer has been fully cleared since OTAs, but this confirms Arizona doesn't feel the need to move him along slowly. Coach Bruce Arians plans to approach Palmer's preseason snaps the same as the last two years. Palmer is a low-end QB2.

Seahawks placed FS Earl Thomas (shoulder) on the active/PUP list.

Thomas is hoping to get cleared for Seattle's final two preseason games. He's still recovering from offseason surgery, but hasn't had any setbacks. Thomas remains questionable for Week 1.

Steve Smith Sr. expects to remain a full-time player in the Ravens' offense this season.

Back in May, coach John Harbaugh mentioned reducing Smith's snaps in an effort to save on his wear and tear at age 36. Doing so is idealistic and ultimately unrealistic for the Ravens, who are otherwise counting on major roles for rookies Breshad Perriman and Maxx Williams in their pass-catching corps. "I think it's going to be hard for both of us to do that," Smith said Friday. "Because we're both competitors and we both want to win." Smith is a solid fantasy WR3 pick this year.

The Redskins plan to give Robert Griffin III more preseason snaps than usual in an effort to get him more comfortable in the offense.

Griffin was a predictably horrific fit in the first year of Jay Gruden's offense last season, though he did seem to make some strides down the stretch. At training camp, Gruden explained away his all-too-public 2014 rift with Griffin as, "That's what you gotta do, that's part of being a young coach and young quarterback." Griffin has reportedly looked "sharp" in early practices. Last season was a disaster, but RG3 does offer upside at his near-nonexistent fantasy ADP.
