According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, it "remains up in the air" whether D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) will be ready for Week 1 against the Patriots.

"At this point, it's just when I feel ready to go and when the trainers and everybody feels it's best for me to get on the field and play a game," said Foreman. The 22-year-old was having an impressive rookie year before he went down with a ruptured Achilles in Week 11. Foreman sat out OTAs but said his rehab is going "really well" and hopes to be ready at some point during training camp. When healthy, the former Texas Longhorn will occupy a change-of-pace role behind starter Lamar Miller.

In an interview with WGR 550 Buffalo, Bills GM Brandon Beane said Zay Jones will have to "earn his way" following a disappointing rookie season in 2017.

"He’s not just going to necessarily go right to the top of the line," said Beane. "He’ll have to earn his way." The 23-year-old sat out OTAs while recovering from knee surgery, meaning he has yet to catch passes from newcomers A.J. McCarron and Josh Allen. Jones won't face much competition at receiver in Buffalo, but it will be hard for fantasy owners to trust him after hauling in just 41.5 percent of his targets last year.

According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, the Patriots are likely to give OT Trent Brown "first crack" at left tackle.

Brown will enter training camp as the favorite to replace Nate Solder on Tom Brady's blind side. First-rounder Isaiah Wynn, who played both tackle and guard during his tenure at Georgia, is penciled in at left guard with David Andrews (center), Shaq Mason (right guard) and Marcus Cannon (right tackle) filling out the rest of New England's O line. That leaves Joe Thuney as the odd man out.

Rick Stroud of Tampa Bay Times expects second-round RB Ronald Jones to earn 15-20 touches per game this season.

This comes days after Stroud's colleague, Greg Auman, suggested Jones would share backfield work with power back Peyton Barber and pass-catcher Charles Sims. While 15-20 touches per game isn't quite bell-cow level, it's still a substantial workload. Even if Barber vultures some short yardage carries and Sims fills in the gaps on passing downs, there's no doubt Jones will be heavily involved as a rookie. In Tampa, he's the running back to own for fantasy purposes.

According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, first-round QB Baker Mayfield has a "long way to go to unseat" starter Tyrod Taylor.

Mayfield has already surpassed Drew Stanton on the Browns' QB depth chart but remains a distant second to Taylor, who has handled all of Cleveland's first-team reps. "I made a commitment to [Taylor] and he has held up his end of the bargain with not just the way he works but the way he plays and the way he leads," said coach Hue Jackson. Obviously the contract-year Taylor is just a placeholder for Mayfield, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner and first overall pick in April's draft. Tyrod will likely be the Week 1 starter but there's a good chance we'll see Mayfield at some point in 2018.

Cowboys team reporter David Helman noted that third-round rookie Michael Gallup has shown a "good rapport" with Dak Prescott.

Per Helman, Gallup has "found ways to generate space" and has been a reliable pass-catcher when thrown to. The Colorado State alum will have a good opportunity in year one following the offseason departures of Dez Bryant and Jason Witten. Beat writer Jon Machota previously projected Gallup for around 450 yards and four touchdowns.

ESPN's Mike Reiss expects Patriots RG Shaq Mason to command more than $10 million annually on his next contract.

Reiss suggested Mason, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract, could land a deal similar to the five-year, $66.5 million pact Andrew Norwell signed with Jacksonville this offseason. If Reiss is correct in his assessment of Mason's value, there's a good chance the former Georgia Yellow Jacket will be playing elsewhere in 2019.

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, David Fales is the front-runner to back up Ryan Tannehill in 2018.

Coach Adam Gase hasn't tipped his hand yet in the race to back up Tannehill, but going off practice performance, Fales has clearly outplayed both Brock Osweiler and Bryce Petty. Per Jackson, Fales has shown well in reading coverage while getting rid of the ball quickly. The 27-year-old played most of Week 17 last year, completing 29-of-43 passes for 265 yards and an interception.

According to ESPN's Mike Rodak, Nathan Peterman is a "serious contender" for the Bills' starting quarterback job.

He impressed while rotating first-team reps with A.J. McCarron at Bills' minicamp, completing 10-of-13 passes with a touchdown during 11-on-11 drills at Tuesday's session. Peterman struggled mightily in his lone start last year—he threw five picks against the Chargers before coming out at halftime—but has cleaned up his mechanics after spending the offseason training with QB guru Tom House. The Bills traded up to draft Josh Allen seventh overall in April, but he mostly worked with the third team during spring practices.

Panthers SS Da'Norris Searcy is expected to start opposite Mike Adams.

Searcy was cut from Tennessee after losing his starting job to Kevin Byard last year but was still good against the run. With Kurt Coleman gone, he should take over most of the snaps on early downs. The Panthers may look to spell Searcy with rookie Rashaan Gaulden in sub-packages.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini doesn't expect the Jets to give up on second-year WR ArDarius Stewart.

Stewart is buried on the Jets' depth chart behind Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa, and Jermaine Kearse. With Chad Hansen outplaying him in offseason practices and Terrelle Pryor owed $2 million guaranteed, he's not a lock for a roster spot, but still has the support of GM Mike Maccagnan. The Jets should open the season with six receivers.

Cowboys DT Jihad Ward could have an early season role.

Ward played with the starters at OTAs. With David Irving suspended four games, he has a chance to see heavy snaps over the first month of the season. Ward was a bust in Oakland but is a solid fit in Rod Marinelli's scheme.

Saints DL Mitchell Loewen was one of the standouts of offseason workouts.

Loewen also flashed last offseason before landing on IR. The 2016 UDFA looks like a lock to make the Saints' roster. Loewen should push for sub-package snaps.

SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano reports the Giants aren’t close to an extension with Odell Beckham.

Beckham plans to attend training camp, but that could change if there’s no movement in contract talks. The Giants have "shown no signs" of meeting Beckham’s demands of being the highest paid receiver in the league. Playing on a fifth-year option, Beckham doesn’t have much leverage if he holds out. The Giants can franchise Beckham for $13 million in 2019.

The Philadelphia Inquirer expects second-round TE Dallas Goedert to be an immediate red-zone threat.

With Trey Burton gone, Goedert is stepping into to the No. 2 tight end role. He reportedly "didn't look like a rookie" in spring workouts and should open the year behind Zach Ertz. There's talk Goedert could get some slot snaps in three-wide sets. Goedert didn't do much blocking in college, so it's possible he'll lose work to Richard Rodgers on early downs.
