Texans LT Duane Brown is expected to hold out of training camp.

It is not a surprise after Brown skipped the entire offseason program, but it is still notable considering the serious questions the Texans have at tackle. Brown still has two years remaining on his deal and is owed $9.65 million this season, a number which ranks third among base salaries at the position, so he may not have much of a case. The Texans need Brown, however, and could perhaps satiate him by guaranteeing some of his remaining salary. Brown is subject to a $40,000 fine for each day he holds out.

Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski believes Eagles third-round CB Rasul Douglas could earn a starting job in camp.

Douglas opened the offseason program behind Patrick Robinson on the depth chart, but earned work with the first-team during OTAs. Those two should battle for the starting job opposite Jalen Mills. Second-rounder Sidney Jones (Achilles') should also get into the mix at some point, but he will almost certainly open the season on the reserve/PUP.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports the Dolphins still want to sign walk-year WR Jarvis Landry to an extension.

Miami has yet to make an offer to the receiver, but Salguero reports the organization is simply doing their due diligence to avoid offending Landry with a low-ball offer. Salguero also expects the Dolphins to tag Landry next spring if they are unable to work out a long-term deal, a move which would cost them $15 million. We are more skeptical about Miami's desire to re-sign the slot receiver and even more so about them paying him $15 million for one season, but Salguero is as plugged in as anyone.

Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune believes Saints first-round rookie Ryan Ramczyk is "the most likely candidate to replace" Terron Armstead (shoulder) at left tackle.

Armstead will be sidelined until at least October after undergoing shoulder surgery in June, opening up a massive hole along the offensive line. Ramczyk may be the early favorite for the job, but veterans Khalif Barnes and Bryce Harris will also get their shots. LG Andrus Peat could also kick out to tackle again like he did when Armstead was sidelined last year.

New Chargers coach Anthony Lynn is implementing more of a zone running scheme.

All teams utilize both, but the Chargers were more of a man-blocking unit last season. Lynn is bringing with him a new scheme which he thinks will help Melvin Gordon get to the "next level" after averaging 3.9 yards per carry last season, and Gordon's backup is happy with the change. "We’ve got some new run concepts, and a scheme that’s a little simpler," Branden Oliver said. "We’ve got a guy like Philip (Rivers) who puts us in the position to win games, so we’re gonna see some special things." Behind a revamped offensive line, the sky is the limit for Gordon this season.

ESPN Lions reporter Michael Rothstein listed third-round WR Kenny Golladay as a starter in his pre-camp roster projection.

The Lions are likely to use two-tight-end sets more often this season after signing Darren Fells, but when they go three-wide, Golladay is the best bet to get the call. The rookie will have to hold off Jared Abbrederis, T.J. Jones, and Jace Billingsley for the job.

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells believes NT David Parry is on the roster bubble.

A fifth-round pick in 2015, Parry has started every game since entering the league, but he struggled against the run both seasons. It also does not help he was arrested for drunkenly stealing a "transportation cart" in February. With Johnathan Hankins in the fold, Parry could be on the outside looking in at final cuts.

ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker wrote Ryan Tannehill moved well during offseason practices despite a brace on his left knee.

Tannehill did not require surgery after partially tearing his ACL late last season, but he will be forced to wear a brace. That brace could be a concern for a player who has averaged over 200 yards rushing a season throughout his career, but the Dolphins have consistently said the quarterback "looks normal." Relegated to an Alex Smith-esque game manager role last season, Tannehill is only a factor in two quarterback leagues.

Cincinnati Enquirer's Jim Owczarski reports "all indications" are Tyler Eifert (back surgery) will be ready for camp.

Eifert waffled on his availability for camp during the spring and did not participate in the offseason program, so it seems unlikely he is a full-go on the first day of camp. Still, his recovery this offseason appears to be going much better than it did last year, and it will be a surprise if he is not participating fully early in camp. Health will always be a concern, but Eifert has scored 18 touchdowns in just 21 games the last two seasons. That upside makes him a clear TE1.

Redskins S DeAngelo Hall (ACL) will open camp on the active/PUP list.

As will LB Houston Bates, who is also recovering from an ACL tear. Neither move is a surprise, and coach Jay Gruden has said it is possible Hall is forced to open the season on the PUP, which would cost him at least the first six games. Despite the injury, a June pay cut likely means Hall's roster spot is safe.

ESPN Chargers reporter Eric Williams wrote Keenan Allen (knee) "looked quick and explosive" during the offseason program.

It is an opinion shared by Philip Rivers, who said the receiver "looks as good as he did before he got hurt" and was running at "full speed" during OTAs. It is not surprising Allen is already back to 100 percent considering he tore his ACL in Week 1, but staying healthy has been the real concern, with Allen playing just nine games the last two seasons. Even if he stays on the field, Allen is returning to a much more crowded depth chart even if No. 7 overall pick Mike Williams (back) is forced to miss the season. Allen is a reasonable pick at his current WR20 ADP, but that will not remain the case if his name value forces him up draft boards.

ESPN Chargers reporter Eric Williams wrote second-round RG Forrest Lamp "has looked the part so far."

After cutting Orlando Franklin and D.J. Fluker, the Chargers could end up starting both Lamp and fellow rookie Dan Feeney at their guard spots this season. Lamp is competing with Kenny Wiggins at right guard, and it sounds like he has the early edge.

ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak reports Cardale Jones saw "limited reps" during the offseason program.

Despite coach Sean McDermott claiming Jones is "absolutely in the mix" at quarterback, Rodak sees the lack of snaps as a sign the fourth-round sophomore is on his way out the door. With great size and arm strength, Jones may be able to fetch a conditional late-round pick as a developmental dart throw.

Latavius Murray (ankle) says his "health is really good."

Murray sat out the entire offseason program recovering from ankle surgery, but it sounds like he will be able to get back on the field early in camp. "Progress is coming along," Murray said. "I still have to get with coach and the training staff to see what they’re going to have me do." With second-rounder Dalvin Cook likely to earn the starting job, Murray will need a strong camp to earn a fantasy-relevant role.

Former Broncos S David Bruton announced his retirement after eight seasons in the NFL.

Signed to a three-year deal by Washington last spring, Bruton only played four games before a concussion ended his season. The safety said it was his sixth since entering the league. "I’m burnt-out, definitely worry about my health," Bruton said. "I’m a guy who likes to use his brain. Especially back in school, I need as many brain cells as possible with all these science classes." Bruton has already enrolled in classes to become a physical therapist.
