Cardinals activated TE Troy Niklas (ankle, hamstring) from the active/NFI list.

Niklas was recovering from a June ankle scope. His practice reps should remain limited for the foreseeable future, while he may not be ready for the first preseason game.

Cardinals activated TE Jermaine Gresham from the active/PUP list.

Despite the activation, Gresham will still be eased into camp. The one-time TE2 will be off the fantasy radar this season.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports unsigned Giants franchise player Jason Pierre-Paul (fingers) won't report to training camp until he can pass his physical.

Pierre-Paul finally talked to GM Jerry Reese on Sunday, but he's avoiding all Giants activities — including signing his one-year tender — until he can be medically cleared. It's a bizarre strategy, but one the G-Men may be more at peace with following Sunday's meeting. It's completely unknown when JPP might finally be ready.

Panthers DT Star Lotulelei was carted off the field in Monday's practice, and spotted with his surgically-repaired right foot in a walking boot.

"They didn't tell me much," was Lotulelei's response when asked what he was told by the medical staff. It's a major concern for a player who underwent surgery in mid-January. Lotulelei broke his foot in Carolina's Wild Card win over the Cardinals. The No. 14 overall pick of the 2013 draft, Lotulelei has established himself as one of the most effective defensive tackles in football.

Bears first-round WR Kevin White (shin) has now been sidelined for more than six weeks.

White continues to make progress, but remains on active/PUP. The Bears have declined to give any kind of timetable or reveal the exact nature of his injury. "I hope sooner rather than later, but that's just a hope," coach John Fox said. Once cleared, White will have a lot of ground to make up under notorious rookie hater Fox. Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett, Matt Forte and Eddie Royal are all competent targets for Jay Cutler.

When asked about Rueben Randle, Giants WRs coach Sean Ryan said, "To me the guy is a player."

The Giants remain on Randle's side despite his frustrating 2014 season and a couple trips to Tom Coughlin's doghouse. He's just 24 years old, showed well during the spring and will see a ton of snaps in Ben McAdoo's preferred three-wide base. Randle, who was going off the board in the eighth or ninth round last year, can be had in the 12th or 13th round this year.

LT Anthony Castonzo confirmed he's in the midst of extension negotiations with the Colts.

Castonzo is entering the final year of his rookie contract. The Colts would be wise to lock up their best offensive lineman, one that gave up just two sacks and 24 hurries while playing every single snap on Andrew Luck's blind side last season. Castonzo will command at least $7 million in average annual salary.

DC Billy Davis said Eric Rowe won't be playing safety anytime soon.

The Eagles will ride with Malcom Jenkins and Walter Thurmond at the two safety positions. At corner, Rowe will compete with Nolan Carroll for outside snaps and fellow rookie JaCorey Shepherd in the slot. On paper at least, the Eagles secondary is improved off last year's Bradley Fletcher/Cary Williams/Nate Allen induced dumpster fire. Byron Maxwell's ability to remain productive despite leaving Seattle's dominant scheme will be crucial.

Hakeem Nicks blamed the Colts' offensive scheme for his lack of production last season.

We saw a dead-legged player struggle to get separation, just like he did during his final two years with the Giants. Nicks, of course, thinks otherwise and vows to rebound in Tennessee under Ken Whisenhunt. "It's more one-on-one, trips backside, vertical throw, shallow-cross game, that's more of my style if you look at my past history, where I excelled," Nicks said. He'll try to hold off Dorial Green-Beckham and Justin Hunter as long as he can.

Packers NT B.J. Raji is at 327 pounds, his lowest weight since college.

It's 10 pounds under the weight he's played at previously, a needed drop for a player who has been mostly ineffective or injured over the last three seasons. Raji will start at nose tackle in the Packers' 3-4 between ends Letroy Guion (suspended three games) and Mike Daniels.

Sources tell the Baltimore Sun S Matt Elam will need surgery to repair his torn biceps.

Elam sustained the injury while trying to make a tackle during Saturday's practice. The No. 32 overall pick in 2013 has scuffled in his career and lost the strong safety job to Will Hill, but the Ravens were counting on him to provide quality depth this year. Instead, he'll be placed on IR shortly and rehab ahead of 2016, the final year of his rookie contract.

Geno Smith has thrown zero interceptions through the the first four days of training camp.

Considering Geno has been picked off 34 times in 30 NFL games, this qualifies as news. He's taken the vast majority of first-team reps and been "solid." Armed with a Chan Gailey scheme that suits his skill set and legit NFL-caliber weapons for the first time, we're expecting Geno to take a significant step forward toward two-QB league relevance.
Aug 3 - 10:50 AM

Blidi Wreh-Wilson has gotten some first-team slot corner reps early in camp.

The bad news for matchup-savvy DFS players is that Wreh-Wilson has lost his starting job to free agent addition Perrish Cox. The good news is the Titans are down on former nickelback Coty Sensabaugh, opening up a significant role on the inside. Opposing quarterbacks had a 110.8 passer rating when throwing at Wreh-Wilson last year.

Dustin Hopkins is outperforming Zach Hocker early in camp.

Hopkins is showing a stronger leg and has been more accurate. It's a fantasy situation to watch as the winner of this battle will be playing 10 games in a dome this season. It's also likely that Drew Brees' red-zone efficiency will wane without Jimmy Graham.
Aug 3 - 10:20 AM

People who are "plugged in" with the Eagles believe the team intends to keep Tim Tebow on the final roster.

Additionally, those people say Chip Kelly intends to actually use Tebow in games. We'll believe that when we see it, especially with Kelly saying repetitive accuracy is the No. 1 thing he looks for in a quarterback. For now, Tebow is just trying to beat out Matt Barkley for the No. 3 gig behind Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez.
