The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Pete Dougherty estimates Eddie Lacy reported to camp "around the 240-pound mark."
It would be a 20-pound loss from where Lacy reported at last year's camp. Lacy's ideal weight is 231-235, but he could easily sweat off several more pounds practicing in the heat. He remains a boom-bust investment in fantasy drafts.
Packers TE Jared Cook (foot surgery) could be out until the second week of the preseason.
Currently on active/PUP, Cook appears likely to miss the first two weeks of training camp and the Hall of Fame Game against the Colts. The missed time will lower Cook's chances of opening the season starting over Richard Rodgers.
The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson considers Arian Foster "the favorite" to start over Jay Ajayi as long as Foster is "completely healthy."
Coach Adam Gase has been talking up Foster the past week-plus since Foster signed a one-year deal. Ajayi is an unproven second-year pro who has some injury concerns of his own and doesn't have the pass-game skill set Foster possesses. Foster is no sure thing from an injury standpoint, either, but signs have been pointing to him being very involved since signing a contract last week. At this point, Foster will probably have to get hurt and/or Ajayi will need an incredible summer to take back the top spot on the Dolphins' depth chart.
The New York Daily News's Ralph Vacchiano would put a "healthy bet" on Victor Cruz catching fewer than 50 passes this season.
It's a reminder that even with Cruz (knee, calf) back to 100 percent, we can't assume he's going to be the player he was two years ago before all the injuries. Cruz has played all of 1.5 games with Odell Beckham since OBJ came into the league, and over all the missed time Beckham has since developed into the league's top receiver. Sterling Shepard was drafted to be the No. 2, and new coach Ben McAdoo is expected to feature the backs and tight ends more in the pass game. Cruz isn't even worth drafting in regular-sized fantasy leagues.
The San Francisco Chronicle's Eric Branch believes Carlos Hyde could be in line for a "monster season" as long as he's able to stay healthy.
As noted by Branch, LeSean McCoy carried the ball 300-plus times each of coach Chip Kelly's first two seasons in Philadelphia, so he's not afraid to ride one running back. And Kelly's scheme is similar to the system Hyde ran in college at Ohio State. The problem for Hyde, however, has been the injury bug; he's missed 11-of-32 games since entering the pros. Also working against Hyde will be the 49ers' lackluster roster, which will likely put them behind on the scoreboard often. If -- big "if" -- Hyde is able to stay healthy, he should easily push 250 carries. Hyde looks like a high-end RB2 with RB1 upside and no clear backup to spell him.
The Santa Rosa Press Democrat's Grant Cohn reports 49ers GM Trent Baalke's "head is under the guillotine," and he's on the hot seat this season.
Owner Jed York is putting the pressure on Baalke after elevating executive Tom Gamble to assistant GM on Monday. Gamble has been with the organization since 2005 except for a two-year stint with the Eagles from 2013-2014 when Gamble had to move back east to be near his sick father. Gamble rejoined the 49ers before last season and has seen numerous GM interviews around the league. Baalke is best-known for winning with now-Redskins GM Scot McCloughan's roster and then winning a power struggle with now-Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, forcing him out of town. Baalke has drafted terribly in recent years despite often having the most picks at his disposal. This 49ers roster isn't set up to win games in 2016.
Saints placed WR Vincent Brown on injured reserve with a calf injury, ending his season.
Brown was placed on the active/PUP list Monday, but the Saints are simply ending this by booting him off the 90-man roster. Brown will likely be released with an injury settlement at some point. He was signed back in May after beating out Hakeem Nicks at a tryout, but was always a roster long shot.
Seahawks agreed to terms with coach Pete Carroll on an extension through 2019.
The deal pairs Carroll with GM John Schneider for the next four seasons. Carroll is the league's oldest coach — really — but arguably its second best behind Bill Belichick. Carroll has staked his claim to being one of the greatest football minds of all time in Seattle, building on the amazing success he had at USC. The Seahawks have made the playoffs 5-of-6 years on Carroll's watch, advancing to two Super Bowls. Going on 65, it's possible this is Carroll's final contract.
