According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Packers RB DuJuan Harris' 2013 knee injury was a ruptured patellar tendon.

We knew the injury was to Harris' patellar tendon, but not that it was ruptured. This is an injury that commonly derails running back careers, most notably and recently Cadillac Williams and Ryan Williams. Ruptured patellar tendons can sap explosion. Harris participated in OTAs, and in June coach Mike McCarthy stated Harris "looks like he's back to full strength." Harris projects as Green Bay's No. 3 tailback this season, behind Eddie Lacy and James Starks.

Andre Johnson hinted to NFL Network's Marcus Smith on Wednesday that he plans on reporting to training camp.

"Hopefully," said A.J., who skipped last month's mandatory minicamp. "We’ll see what happens. Camp is three weeks away." Johnson's beef was never about money. He understandably fears a lengthy rebuild for a team that had May's No. 1 overall draft pick, but we suspect the Texans will be more competitive more quickly than Johnson believes. His "hopefully" comment suggests ending the holdout is in Johnson's plans. Currently sporting a late-fourth-round Average Draft Position, Johnson has the look of a value pick entering his age-33 season.

NFL suspended Redskins S Tanard Jackson indefinitely for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

It's Jackson's second indefinite suspension in less than two calendar years; he was suspended indefinitely for substance abuse on August 31, 2012 before getting reinstated on May 5 of this year. Jackson's NFL days are 100 percent over after this ban, and he may never be welcomed back by Roger Goodell.

Redskins OLB Ryan Kerrigan said he wants to be with the team for years to come.

Kerrigan has two years left on his deal after the Redskins exercised his 2015 option for $7.038 million. But he says "hopefully after that," he'll be in D.C. "even longer." Kerrigan has 24.5 sacks through three seasons, never finishing a season with fewer than 7.5 or more than 8.5. As long as he keeps producing at a steady clip, Kerrigan should have no trouble netting a healthy payday.

Jets OLB Antwan Barnes (knee) anticipates being ready for the start of training camp.

Barnes blew out his ACL in Week 5, which should be plenty of time for him to have a successful recovery. He'll compete for a reserve role behind starters Quinton Coples and Calvin Pace. Barnes has 20.5 sacks the past four seasons.

Free agent Jermichael Finley (neck) says he still "very much wants to return to the Packers."

"This is the best I've felt in this entire crazy process," Finley said. "I'm working as hard as I can to get back to Packer Nation." Finley continues to work out in hopes of gaining medical clearance. Recent reports suggest the Packers haven't closed the door on a reunion. Our best guess is they want to see what they have at tight end in training camp before taking a flier on an injury risk like Finley.

Jordan Todman is expected to be the Jaguars' kick returner again this season.

Todman averaged 27.4 yards per on 26 kick returns last season, good for seventh in the league. Second-round rookie Marqise Lee returned kicks at USC and could provide competition for Todman this summer. Ace Sanders and Tandon Doss are expected to compete for punt return duties.

New Mexico WR Chase Clayton, North Carolina LB Darius Lipford, Virginia-Lynchburg DT Lakendrick Ross and SMU RB Traylon Shead are the players eligible for Thursday's Supplemental Draft.

There's not a Josh Gordon or Terrelle Pryor in the group. It's quite possible all four players go undrafted, meaning they would become undrafted free agents free to sign with any club.

WGR 550 Buffalo believes third-year Bills WR T.J. Graham will have to prove he can "chip in on special teams" to secure a spot on the 53-man roster.

That means Graham will have to learn a new skill, as he's been a non-factor on special teams through his first two years in the league. Graham has combined for one career kick/punt return. Graham's ceiling on offense is No. 5 receiver.

WGR 550 Buffalo considers Mike Williams a lock for the Bills' 53-man roster.

That's provided Williams stays out of trouble between now and Week 1. That's not a given, of course, but Williams isn't entering camp on the bubble. He's the favorite to join Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods in three-wide sets, splitting out wide and providing a big target in the red zone. Williams could come into WR4 appeal in re-draft leagues.
Jul 9 - 10:10 AM

Aaron Dobson (foot surgery) confirms he's "optimistic" he'll be ready for training camp.

Dobson sat out the Patriots' entire offseason program, but is finally progressing. "It’s doing better, man," Dobson said Tuesday. "It’s getting better every day. Every week it’s getting better, so we’re just going to see where it’s at by the time camp starts." This being the Patriots, the only real updates we're going to get on Dobson is whether or not he's practicing, but his foot doesn't appear to be a long-term question mark.

Vikings OC Norv Turner says Teddy Bridgewater is a "lot further along than I expected him to be."

"Teddy's been really, really impressive," Norval said in a Monday radio interview. Like most July quotes, Turner's words mean very little in the grand scheme of things, but it's better to hear something emptily positive than simply empty. Bridgewater is going to make starts in 2014, it's just a matter of when.

ESPN Boston believes second-year DE Jake Bequette could be on the "outside looking in" of the Patriots' 53-man roster if everyone is healthy.

Everyone is rarely healthy, of course, but Bequette has played just 43 snaps in two seasons since being the 90th overall selection in the 2012 draft. ESPN Boston speculated earlier this offseason that Bequette could be groomed for a Rob Ninkovich-like role, but he'll have to have a healthy and productive camp to nail down his roster spot.

Jaguars.com believes second-year RB Denard Robinson looked "far more confident" this offseason after recovering from the nerve damage in his hand.

The nerve issue marred both Robinson's senior year at Michigan and his rookie campaign in Jacksonville, but he's supposedly back to 100 percent. That will have to be true for Shoelace to get involved as a receiver after he caught exactly zero passes in 2013. Robinson has play-making upside, but it's unlikely to translate to fantasy value in any format this season.

Jaguars.com considers second-year SS Johnathan Cyprien the most-likely Jag to "rise" in 2014.

Cyprien was routinely torched his first two months in the league, but steadied down the stretch. He's one of the reasons the Jags went 4-4 over their final eight games. Cyprien figures to remain a work-in-progress in coverage this season, but could be a difference maker against the run.
