Several Chargers teammates have noticed increased speed from Keenan Allen in 2014 training camp.

After battling a college knee injury all last offseason, Allen made all but two of his 71 rookie-year receptions within 20 yards of the line of scrimmage. Allen has since worked on add a deep-threat element. "He always was a great route runner," Philip Rivers said. "There just seems to be a little more juice. I think that's fair. If he can maintain that, it's only going to broaden what he can do." Still only 22 years old, Allen is a legitimate WR1 in Dynasty leagues.

Suspended WR Josh Gordon's appeal meeting with hearing officer Harold Henderson lasted almost ten hours Friday and will resume Monday in New York.

Henderson "shut it down" for the night after the sides met from 9:30AM until 7PM Friday. Henderson could theoretically reduce Gordon's one-year suspension, but such reductions are rare because "it's an appeal and it's meant to be rejected or confirmed." Currently trying the same "second-hand smoke" defense Gordon is now employing, Ravens S Will Hill lost his appeal of a six-game ban for violating the substance abuse policy earlier this offseason. Still, the Cleveland Plain Dealer believes the fact that Friday's hearing lasted so long, and will continue Monday "would seem to indicate that Gordon has at least a chance for something other than the minimum one-year ban."

Cowboys waived WR L'Damian Washington.

A ballyhooed UDFA out of Missouri, Washington fell behind when he suffered a shoulder injury in early June, and didn't even last to first cuts in Dallas. The Cowboys gave him a relatively pricey $7K signing bonus after the draft.

Undrafted rookie Juwan Thompson has moved to No. 4 on the Broncos' tailback depth chart.

He's running ahead of fellow UDFAs Kapri Bibbs and Brennan Clay, and behind Montee Ball, Ronnie Hillman, and C.J. Anderson. At a sturdy 5-foot-11, 226, Thompson ran a respectable 4.57 forty at Duke's Pro Day with a 9-foot-11 broad jump after playing in Blue Devils coach David Cutcliffe' pro-style offense. He knows how to pass protect and is someone to monitor in extra-deep leagues.

Knowshon Moreno (knee) could miss the entire preseason.

Moreno's initial timetable was 4-5 weeks. Now six weeks removed from his June knee scope, Moreno "still labors to walk, let alone run," per the Miami Herald, and "is still unsure when he'll return." Lamar Miller will continue to handle first-team carries and remains the heavy favorite to start Week 1. Before Friday's practice, Moreno was sporting ice packs on both knees "and he had an awkward gait" as he made his way to work with trainers. "I don’t know. I don’t know," Moreno said when asked if he'll play in an exhibition game. "I really don’t even know." At this point, we wouldn't advise drafting Moreno save for in the deepest of leagues.

Giants rookie CB Bennett Jackson has a "significant ankle sprain."

There's no structural damage, but Jackson will likely miss extended time in training camp. A sixth-round pick, Jackson is a candidate for the practice squad.

Marquise Goodwin suffered a hamstring injury during Friday's practice.

The extent is unknown, but hamstring injuries have a tendency to linger. Goodwin should be considered questionable for Buffalo's preseason opener on Sunday.

Bills rookie Cyril Richardson has been getting some first-team reps at right guard.

Richardson struggled with protection schemes in OTAs and was listed as the backup left guard on the Bills' first depth chart. He now appears to be in the mix at right guard along with Chris Hairston and incumbent Kraig Urbik. At 6'5/329, Richardson is a strong fit in Buffalo's power-run scheme. Even if he doesn't win the Week 1 job, Richardson could push for starts at some point this season.

Titans OLB Derrick Morgan has been "standing out on a regular basis" in camp.

A defensive end his first four seasons, Morgan hasn't had any issues at LEO in Ray Horton's 3-4. He is expected to play end in sub packages. Horton was the most blitz-heavy coordinator in the league last season, so Morgan's sack total should improve on last year's 6.0. Entering a contract year, Morgan could attract heavy interest as a scheme-versatile edge player next offseason.

Cowboys signed DE Ken Boatright.

24-year-old Boatright adds depth to a defensive line that's currently missing Demarcus Lawrence (foot), Terrell McClain (ankle) and Amobi Okoye (illness, active/NFI). A 2013 UDFA, Boatright spent last year on I.R. with Seattle. The Cowboys have also added DE Adewale Ojomo to their 90-man roster.

Justin Blackmon can apply for reinstatement after November 1 (Week 9) of the 2014 season.

Blackmon missed the final eight games of 2013 serving his indefinite suspension. He can apply for reinstatement one year from that date, but the Jaguars "aren't counting on him" this season. Still, it's surprising more hasn't been made of Blackmon's situation. Though not unprecedented, suspending Blackmon 24 games would be a strong statement from the NFL. Odell Thurman and Tanard Jackson were denied reinstatement under Roger Goodell and received two-year bans. (Thurman had multiple off-field arrests and Jackson was rumored to have violated the terms of his Treatment Plan). It's not clear if Blackmon is currently in good standing with the league. Similar to Josh Gordon's DUI, Blackmon's July marijuana arrest complicates matters and will subject him to the NFL's personal conduct policy when he's eligible to return.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora believes that Sam Bradford (knee) still doesn't look fully healthy.

"You can tell [he's] still moving gingerly at times," LaCanfora tweeted from Rams practice. Bradford was a full-go for the start of training camp and hasn't missed any time. St. Louis is considering holding him out of the preseason opener as a precaution. Bradford's Week 1 status isn't in doubt.

The Rams are hoping Brian Quick is "ready to make a leap forward" this season.

Quick has just 29 catches, 458 yards, and four touchdowns since the Rams took him 33rd overall in 2012. He's getting the majority of first-team reps opposite Kenny Britt and could push for the starting X-receiver role. Quick is entering his third season, where receivers traditionally make their biggest statistical leap. The Rams believe his size-speed combo could finally translate into production, and project to field a more competent passing game with Sam Bradford returning. Quick is a post-hype sleeper worth monitoring in deeper leagues.
Aug 1 - 6:19 PM

Steelers signed RB Jawan Jamison.

A 2013 seventh-round pick, Jamison struggled with conditioning issues as a rookie and was released by Washington back in March. The Steelers waived RB Alvester Alexander in a corresponding move.
Aug 1 - 5:47 PM

49ers TE Garrett Celek has "a disc issue" in his back.

Celek should be considered week to week. He opened training camp on active/PUP and will miss at least one preseason game. Derek Carrier will continue to get the majority of reps as the No. 3 tight end.
