A league source told the Cincinnati Enquirer that Tyler Eifert's ankle rehab is "on schedule and progressing as planned."

What this means exactly for Eifert's return isn't clear, but it's better than hearing Eifert's recovery is behind schedule or not progressing as planned. The Cincy Enquirer says that "at the time of" Eifert's surgery on May 27 "the plan was for him to be ready for the Sept. 11 regular season opener in New York." Multiple reports since have stated Eifert is unlikely to be ready for Week 1. The Bengals may not know for sure until late August.

Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip surgeries) avoided the active/PUP list to begin training camp.

It's an indication that Pitta is indeed 100 percent or very close to it after appearing in just seven games since the end of the 2012 season. He'll be eligible to practice on Thursday. If Pitta is capable of becoming a contributor, the Ravens could field more two-tight end sets with him and Ben Watson on the field together. Maxx Williams and Crockett Gillmore would be the odd men out.

Chris Conley ran as the Chiefs' first-team X receiver this spring.

Jeremy Maclin is Kansas City's Z receiver, with Albert Wilson moving inside to the slot to replace Jason Avant. Wilson may still start in two-receiver sets, but it was clear late last season that the Chiefs wanted Conley more involved. He scored a touchdown in the team's Wild Card win over Houston and caught five passes in Kansas City's Divisional Round loss to the Patriots. A SPARQ freak at 6-foot-2, 213, Conley has some appeal in best-ball fantasy leagues.

Lions placed WR Corey Fuller (foot) on the active/PUP list.

Fuller has been shut down since June surgery. He isn't a lock to return during training camp. Even when healthy, Fuller is on the outside looking in for a roster spot.

Lions placed TE Brandon Pettigrew (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Pettigrew was never expected to be ready for training camp. He's seven months into his ACL recovery. Pettigrew is a candidate to open the season on reserve/PUP, costing him the first six games.

Dolphins DE Cameron Wake (Achilles') will have a reduced role this year.

Wake looked healthy at OTAs, but is only eight months removed from a torn Achilles. The Dolphins have said all offseason they want to get him fewer snaps. Andre Branch should have a heavy rotational role behind Wake and Mario Williams.

The Chargers could start CB Casey Hayward opposite Jason Verrett.

Brandon Flowers is the incumbent starter, but is coming off a career-worst 2015. Hayward has never been a full-time corner, playing 65 percent of his snaps in the slot with the Packers. His three-year, $15.3M deal suggests he’s the favorite to start.

Eagles re-signed QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson.

Bethel-Thompson didn't generate any interest after his release earlier this offseason. He'll provide a camp arm behind Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel, and Carson Wentz.

Broncos rookie Devontae Booker has a chance to open the season in a third-down role.

Booker is the No. 2 back after outplaying Ronnie Hillman this offseason. C.J. Anderson could have a near every-down role, but Booker is a threat to his pass game snaps. Booker is a must-own Anderson handcuff.

Broncos rookie Justin Simmons is competing for the No. 3 safety job.

Bradley Roby is expected to see time at safety, but Simmons is the top backup. Shiloh Keo and sixth-rounder William Parks are competing behind Simmons.

Giants first-round CB Eli Apple could struggle to see the field early.

Apple got offseason reps with the first team, but isn’t expected to beat out Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for a starting job. His lack of slot experience is a concern for his nickel role. The Giants could use more three safety packages until Apple is ready to contribute.

Victor Cruz (calf, knee) is "ready to go" for the start of training camp.

Cruz was limited to individual drills at minicamp. The Giants will monitor his reps early, but he’s close to fully recovered. Cruz should get most of his preseason snaps in the slot, with rookie Sterling Shepard starting opposite Odell Beckham.

The Panthers could use Ted Ginn on kick returns.

With Kelvin Benjamin returning, Ginn doesn’t project for more than a deep threat role. The Panthers want to use special teams to get him more touches. Ginn should also remain Carolina’s punt returner.

Coach Todd Bowles thinks Geno Smith can be the Jets’ starter.

"I think Geno can be a good starter, but he’s got to prove it in training camp like everybody else," Bowles said. "He’s been in the system a year. We’ll see what he does." It’s not more than coachspeak, but the Jets have thrown support behind Smith all offseason. Despite a standstill in contract talks, Ryan Fitzpatrick remains likely to be the Week 1 starter.

ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia wouldn’t be surprised if Seattle adds a veteran quarterback.

The Seahawks like Trevone Boykin as Russell Wilson’s backup, but want to see how he does at training camp. Seattle hasn’t been connected to any quarterbacks since Tarvaris Jackson’s arrest. Outside of Ryan Fitzpatrick, Jimmy Clausen, Charlie Whitehurst, T.J. Yates, and Michael Vick are the top free agents.
