The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Pete Dougherty estimates Eddie Lacy reported to camp "around the 240-pound mark."

It would be a 20-pound loss from where Lacy reported at last year's camp. Lacy's ideal weight is 231-235, but he could easily sweat off several more pounds practicing in the heat. He remains a boom-bust investment in fantasy drafts.

Packers TE Jared Cook (foot surgery) could be out until the second week of the preseason.

Currently on active/PUP, Cook appears likely to miss the first two weeks of training camp and the Hall of Fame Game against the Colts. The missed time will lower Cook's chances of opening the season starting over Richard Rodgers.

The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson considers Arian Foster "the favorite" to start over Jay Ajayi as long as Foster is "completely healthy."

Coach Adam Gase has been talking up Foster the past week-plus since Foster signed a one-year deal. Ajayi is an unproven second-year pro who has some injury concerns of his own and doesn't have the pass-game skill set Foster possesses. Foster is no sure thing from an injury standpoint, either, but signs have been pointing to him being very involved since signing a contract last week. At this point, Foster will probably have to get hurt and/or Ajayi will need an incredible summer to take back the top spot on the Dolphins' depth chart.

The New York Daily News's Ralph Vacchiano would put a "healthy bet" on Victor Cruz catching fewer than 50 passes this season.

It's a reminder that even with Cruz (knee, calf) back to 100 percent, we can't assume he's going to be the player he was two years ago before all the injuries. Cruz has played all of 1.5 games with Odell Beckham since OBJ came into the league, and over all the missed time Beckham has since developed into the league's top receiver. Sterling Shepard was drafted to be the No. 2, and new coach Ben McAdoo is expected to feature the backs and tight ends more in the pass game. Cruz isn't even worth drafting in regular-sized fantasy leagues.

The San Francisco Chronicle's Eric Branch believes Carlos Hyde could be in line for a "monster season" as long as he's able to stay healthy.

As noted by Branch, LeSean McCoy carried the ball 300-plus times each of coach Chip Kelly's first two seasons in Philadelphia, so he's not afraid to ride one running back. And Kelly's scheme is similar to the system Hyde ran in college at Ohio State. The problem for Hyde, however, has been the injury bug; he's missed 11-of-32 games since entering the pros. Also working against Hyde will be the 49ers' lackluster roster, which will likely put them behind on the scoreboard often. If -- big "if" -- Hyde is able to stay healthy, he should easily push 250 carries. Hyde looks like a high-end RB2 with RB1 upside and no clear backup to spell him.

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat's Grant Cohn reports 49ers GM Trent Baalke's "head is under the guillotine," and he's on the hot seat this season.

Owner Jed York is putting the pressure on Baalke after elevating executive Tom Gamble to assistant GM on Monday. Gamble has been with the organization since 2005 except for a two-year stint with the Eagles from 2013-2014 when Gamble had to move back east to be near his sick father. Gamble rejoined the 49ers before last season and has seen numerous GM interviews around the league. Baalke is best-known for winning with now-Redskins GM Scot McCloughan's roster and then winning a power struggle with now-Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, forcing him out of town. Baalke has drafted terribly in recent years despite often having the most picks at his disposal. This 49ers roster isn't set up to win games in 2016.

Saints placed WR Vincent Brown on injured reserve with a calf injury, ending his season.

Brown was placed on the active/PUP list Monday, but the Saints are simply ending this by booting him off the 90-man roster. Brown will likely be released with an injury settlement at some point. He was signed back in May after beating out Hakeem Nicks at a tryout, but was always a roster long shot.

Seahawks agreed to terms with coach Pete Carroll on an extension through 2019.

The deal pairs Carroll with GM John Schneider for the next four seasons. Carroll is the league's oldest coach — really — but arguably its second best behind Bill Belichick. Carroll has staked his claim to being one of the greatest football minds of all time in Seattle, building on the amazing success he had at USC. The Seahawks have made the playoffs 5-of-6 years on Carroll's watch, advancing to two Super Bowls. Going on 65, it's possible this is Carroll's final contract.

Panthers signed FS Kurt Coleman to a three-year extension through 2019.

Plucked off the scrap heap after a year of backing up in Kansas City, Coleman had a career year in 2015. He stuffed the stat sheet with 90 tackles, seven picks and a sack, and graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 7 overall safety. His seven picks were tied for second in the league. Coleman turned 28 in April.

Andrew Luck wants to get rid of the ball quicker in an effort to limit the hits he takes.

"Situational awareness and getting rid of the ball quicker," Luck said. "That falls under understanding the playbook." Luck isn't wrong. By Pro Football Focus' count, just five quarterbacks held onto the ball longer in 2015, though two of them were Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson. Luck had survived an unreal amount of punishment through the first three years of his career before finally paying a price in 2015.

The Sacramento Bee reports Colin Kaepernick (shoulder surgery) has been cleared for training camp.

Kap underwent shoulder, knee and thumb operations, but it was his shoulder that needed final clearance. Kap could still begin camp on active/PUP as he gets his conditioning in order, but he'll be ready to battle Blaine Gabbert for the starting job. Amazingly, Gabbert seems to have a leg up. It's a crazy world out there.
Jul 26 - 6:53 PM

Gary Barnidge (sports hernia surgery) has been cleared for training camp.

Barnidge went under the knife in early June. The TE3 last season, Barnidge is an obvious candidate for regression, but also one of the Browns' only proven playmakers until Josh Gordon returns. He should still be a legitimate TE1.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase hints Tony Lippett is in the lead to start opposite Byron Maxwell at cornerback.

"Tony has been starting the entire time anyway," Gase said. "Tony is just going to keep working at that spot right now." Lippett has an opening with second-rounder Xavien Howard recovering from a knee scope. Lippett might be in the lead for Week 1, but would still have to hold off Howard in the regular season.

Free agent Andre Johnson worked out for the Titans on Tuesday.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, it was a "feel-out session for both sides." Whatever it was, it signals further displeasure with sophomore Dorial Green-Beckham. Johnson appeared to have very little left in 2015, but a young team like the Titans would value his intangibles more than most.
Jul 26 - 5:50 PM

CSN Bay Area reports Raiders DE/OLB Mario Edwards (neck) is "back to being himself."

Edwards was full-go for May OTAs, and is 100 percent for training camp after a frightening neck issue sidelined him for the majority of the offseason. Edwards was versatile and productive as a rookie, stuffing the stat-sheet in 608 snaps between linebacker and end.
