Bears RG Kyle Long suffered a strained calf in Thursday's practice, and is week to week.

Anquan Boldin's one-year contract is worth $2.75 million, and includes a $750,000 signing bonus.

In other words, he'll be making the 53-man roster. All but assured of No. 3 receiver duties, Boldin will probably be in the 50-catch range behind Golden Tate and Marvin Jones.

Steelers OLB Bud Dupree reported to training camp at 254 pounds, down 15 from his 2015 Combine weigh in.

Dupree admitted he hit the rookie wall last year, and evidently believes his heft had something to do with it. He was "270-plus" by the end of the season, and felt "sluggish." Dupree had just four sacks in 16 games, but flashed enough to create optimism for his sophomore year. Being in better shape can only help.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Steelers have made "no progress" in talks with contract-year RG David DeCastro.

Per Fowler, DeCastro is "shopping insurance policies" in case he's forced to play the season out under his fifth-year team option. The No. 24 overall pick of the 2012 draft, DeCastro had a shaky rookie year, but has since come on as one of the league's better guards. He turned 26 in January.

Rams SS T.J. McDonald will be a full participant in training camp.

McDonald underwent shoulder surgery last December. He went on to have a drama-filled offseason, including a drunk driving arrest. He's facing a suspension.

Contract-year WR Emmanuel Sanders says the sides are "going back and forth" in talks.

"I don't want to break the bank, but I want a fair deal," Sanders said. "Fair deal" disclaimer or not, it's an indication Sanders might take a bit of a discount to remain in Denver. Sanders has been extremely productive the past two years, but his value is a bit hard to peg as a 5-foot-11 No. 2 receiver.

Jets placed DE Muhammad Wilkerson (leg) on the active/PUP list.

Wilkerson said he expected to be ready for camp, so the Jets are probably just exercising caution and easing him in. Wilkerson will be 100 percent well ahead of Week 1, which is all that matters.

Redskins first-round WR Josh Doctson's Achilles' injury has lingered since May, but he insists he's not worried about his health for the regular season.

Doctson injured himself on the first day of voluntary practice, but insists it isn't a concern. "I’m not really concerned because I know my body, and I’ve never really had lingering problems," Doctson added. "I heal fast." Doctson did add he doesn't plan to rush his rehab. "It’s going to be a long year, so I’ve got plenty of time." We'd consider Doctson week to week, and doubtful for Washington's first preseason game.

49ers DT Kaleb Ramsey has retired.

A 2014 seventh-rounder, Ramsey never appeared in a regular season game thanks in large part to injuries. He was incredibly injury prone coming out of Boston College. Ramsey turned 27 last month.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Ravens fourth-round RB Kenneth Dixon has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 MCL sprain.

Rapsheet calls it a "minor injury," but Dixon will probably be on the shelf for at least a week. ESPN's Adam Schefter says he's day today. It's a blow for a day-three pick who has (had?) a chance to put himself in the mix for a big early-season role. It helps solidify both Justin Forsett and Buck Allen's standing as the Nos. 1 and 2 on the depth chart. Dixon could still make noise if he recovers quickly and has an impressive preseason.

The Lions plan to play Anquan Boldin both in the slot and on the perimeter.

Boldin played 64.7 percent of his snaps in the slot last season. That number was 56.0 percent for Golden Tate. There's no question Tate is the bigger playmaker out of the slot at this point in their respective careers, but perhaps he'll cede the middle to Boldin in some three-receiver sets. Boldin will take targets from each of Tate, Marvin Jones, Eric Ebron and Theo Riddick, but not enough from any to stall their fantasy value.

Vikings extended coach Mike Zimmer's contract.

The terms were not announced. "There is no doubt Zimmer is going to be our coach for a long time," GM Rick Spielman said. It's a bit unusual for a third-year coach with zero playoff victories to already be getting an extension, but Zimmer has done an undeniably excellent job through two seasons. He's settled the defense and helped set a tone on offense. Zimmer is known for being fiery, but has been surprisingly calm and levelheaded as a head man. He's a born head coach.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said CB Joe Haden (ankle surgery) is very close to returning.

Jackson added the corner is chomping at the bit to get back on the field. Haden underwent ankle surgery in March after being limited to five games last season by various injuries including a severe concussion. It sounds like Haden could get some work in during the preseason, but the Browns will likely be very cautious with their star corner.

Updating a previous item, Ravens placed RB Lorenzo Taliaferro (foot) on active/PUP.

Taliaferro dealt with a foot injury during the offseason, but he was expected to be ready for camp. The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports the foot did not respond to treatment as well as the training staff hoped. A fixture on the injury report through two years, Taliaferro is not a lock for the final roster.

Pro Football Talk reports Bears first-round OLB Leonard Floyd was carted off the practice field Thursday for "heat-related" reasons.

Coach John Fox said after practice that Floyd was "sick." Of course, we would have already known the injury was not serious if the Bears did not have a ridiculously restrictive policy on reporting practice injuries. Thankfully, it looks like Floyd will be fine.
