Free agent WR Greg Little will work out for the Bengals.

Little was released by the Bengals in February, but they have a need at the back end of their receiver corps after losing James Wright (knee) for the season. Little will presumably be working out with other veteran wideouts. He visited the Jets earlier this week.

Chiefs SS Eric Berry (lymphoma) is undergoing further testing, but the team expects to have more information on his status by Wednesday.

"Everything has been positive so far," coach Andy Reid said on Tuesday. ESPN's Adam Teicher expects Berry to begin the year on the reserve/NFI list, but perhaps that will change if Berry gets good news this week. His status will likely be updated in the next 48 hours.

Chiefs NT Dontari Poe is recovering from back surgery to repair a herniated disk, and is out indefinitely.

Poe won't participate in camp. Per coach Andy Reid, there's a "reasonable chance" Poe returns at the "end of the season." Poe was a slow developer, but has come on as one of the league's premier nose tackles. His loss is a massive blow for a run defense that was one of the league's worst in 2014, and doesn't know what it will get from Mike DeVito and Derrick Johnson as they recover from Achilles' injuries. Poe has missed just one game in three NFL seasons. Jaye Howard is the next man up on the depth chart.

The New York Daily News reports Tom Brady will "definitely" file for an injunction to stay his four-game suspension while the legal process plays out.

The league has already sought to "confirm" Brady's suspension in federal court, while Brady is prepared to file a lawsuit of his own. We're nowhere near the end of this melodrama, which has been given the gravity of an international incident.

According to Bengals.com, the team was "hoping to see more" from Denarius Moore this offseason.

Moore's roster odds have improved with James Wright (knee) headed to injured reserve, but he was apparently unimpressive in OTAs and minicamp. It's troubling news for a wideout who has never lacked for physical skills. If Moore can't revive his career under OC Hue Jackson, who coached him to his best season in 2011, it's probably never going to happen.

Bloomberg's Scott Soshnick reports the NFL has asked the U.S. District Court in Manhattan to "confirm" Tom Brady's four-game suspension.

In other words, they're suing Brady before he can sue them. Brady's 2014-15 decision to slightly under-inflate his footballs has resulted in an all-out war with the league. The SportsBusiness Journal's Daniel Kaplan speculates the league's suit is designed to get the matter out of judge David Doty's jurisdiction in Minnesota. Doty has often been a thorn in the NFL's side. Brady's case is looking a bit shaky amidst the revelation he intentionally destroyed his phone on the day of his meeting with investigator Ted Wells.

Although Martavis Bryant is garnering more hype, NFL Network's Albert Breer has heard third-year WR Markus Wheaton had "probably the best offseason of the Steelers' wide receivers."

The 79th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Wheaton has fallen short of expectations through two seasons, managing 59 catches for 708 yards and two touchdowns on 99 targets. Still, Wheaton is only 24 years old and appears to be entrenched as Pittsburgh's slot receiver in what will be a base three-wide attack. We don't have high expectations for Wheaton in re-draft leagues, but he's still worth rostering in all Dynasty and best-ball settings.

Bengals waived/injured WR James Wright.

Per Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson, Wright is "facing season-ending knee surgery" after apparently tearing his PCL late last year. The injury was previously undisclosed. Wright had been penciled in as Cincinnati's No. 4 receiver. Hobson reports the Bengals are expected to work out a group of veteran receivers before camp begins on Friday. The No. 239 pick of last year's draft, Wright caught five passes in 11 games. He should clear waivers and revert to injured reserve, but it's not a given. Wright's injury increases Denarius Moore's odds of making the team.

Bengals placed OT Cedric Ogbuehi (knee) on the active/NFI list.

Ogbuehi tore up his knee in late December. Cincinnati's first-rounder could remain on the NFI list through Week 1, which would cost him the first six games of the season. The Bengals won't risk Ogbuehi's future with LT Andrew Whitworth and RT Andre Smith still in the starting lineup.
Jul 28 - 3:17 PM

Bengals placed WLB Vontaze Burfict (knee) on the active/PUP list.

It's quite likely Burfict will remain on the PUP list through Week 1, which means he'll miss the first six games of the season. Recovering from microfracture surgery and neck issues, it's possible Burfict ends up missing the entire season. Speaking Tuesday, coach Marvin Lewis said Burfict would be "way ahead of the curve" if he saw preseason snaps.

The NFL has reduced Le'Veon Bell's suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy from three games to two.

That sound you hear is Bell racing back atop draft boards. Including the Steelers' bye, Bell is still ticketed to miss 23 percent of the fantasy regular season, but he's a dual-threat difference maker who provides a weekly edge in all formats of fantasy. That's especially true in PPR leagues, where Bell is a no-brainer at No. 1 overall. Bell is the goal-line back and primary checkdown target for an offense that wants to score 30 points per game this season. DeAngelo Williams will start in Weeks 1 and 2, where Pittsburgh is facing New England and San Francisco.
Jul 28 - 2:51 PM

The league has upheld Tom Brady's four-game suspension.

After a summer of waffling, commissioner Roger Goodell decided to hold firm on Brady's shockingly-severe punishment. It means the matter is now headed to federal court, where Brady will sue the league. Brady will reportedly "seek an injunction that will allow him to play while his case works its way through the courts." Buried in the league's statement was confirmation that Brady destroyed his cellphone, apparently on the same day he met with investigator Ted Wells. Reading the reports, "Deflategate" sometimes comes across as a matter of national security instead of the silly sports controversy that it is. As it stands, Jimmy Garoppolo will start against the Steelers, Bills, Jaguars and Cowboys.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the Cowboys have "no interest" in free agent Ray Rice.

The Cowboys have been speculatively connected to Rice and Chris Johnson, but ESPN's Todd Archer previously tweeted those links are being made by "everybody but the Cowboys." Per the Star-Telegram's Charean Williams, the Cowboys "haven't ruled out signing a vet back, but not for at least a couple weeks." They want to see how Joe Randle, Darren McFadden, and Lance Dunbar look early in camp.
Jul 28 - 2:31 PM

Updating an earlier item, Rams RB Todd Gurley (ACL) will begin training camp on the active roster.

It means Gurley is ineligible for the reserve/NFI list, which would have cost him the first six games of the season. It's a major surprise after the Rams insisted all offseason they would take things slow with the No. 10 overall pick. It still doesn't guarantee Gurley will be ready for Week 1, but he's trending in that direction. Gurley's Week 1 status will be confirmed if he suits up for preseason action. Expect Gurley's ADP of RB20 to climb.
Jul 28 - 2:17 PM

Vikings FS Harrison Smith admits he's unlikely to sign an extension before the season.

Coming off a breakout campaign, the No. 29 overall pick of the 2012 draft is due just $6.64 million over the next two seasons. Smith does believe he's in Minnesota for the long haul, however. "You can count on it," Smith said of his odds of remaining in the Twin Cities. Locking Smith up next offseason will likely be a priority for the Vikings.
