Player Notes

  • Trestman keeping Kubiak's offense in place
    Ravens OC Marc Trestman promised Baltimore's offense will remain rooted in the running game.

    Advice: Replacing balanced-to-run-heavy OC Gary Kubiak, Trestman has a pass-happy background but is insistent on keeping Kubiak's scheme based on the personnel in place. "Ravens football starts with the running game, and that doesn't mean you're not going to throw the ball," Trestman said. "But the emphasis here is we want to be a great running football team, and we have the players to do that. So, that's where we start." The Ravens have a top-five offensive line and will keep Kubiak's zone-running scheme, in which Justin Forsett flourished last season, ranking fifth in the NFL in rushing yards.

  • Duke Johnson running with 3rd-team offense
    Rookie Duke Johnson was running with the Browns' third-team offense before tweaking his hamstring in Saturday's training camp practice.

    Advice: He's been behind Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West. "I'll be alright," Johnson said after the injury. "I've experienced much worse. I just felt something in my hamstring, stopped for precautionary reasons. We're going to take a look at it today." The Browns don't seem concerned, but Johnson needs to get back on the practice field to make up ground on the depth chart. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:32 pm

  • B. Hoyer continues to lead Texans QB battle
    NFL.com's Lance Zierlein suggests the Texans' quarterback battle "might be over sooner than you think."

    Advice: A Houston-area media member, Zierlein is convinced Brian Hoyer will be the Week 1 starter. Zierlein later cited Ryan Mallett's lack of accuracy as his likely downfall. Texans fans are oddly obsessed with Mallett getting the nod, but Mallett has been outplayed by Hoyer since the early spring, and was traded away by Bill Belichick for a conditional seventh-round pick last year. We still anticipate both sub-par quarterbacks making 2015 starts. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:20 pm

  • Martavis Bryant out 7-10 days with elbow issue
    Martavis Bryant will undergo a minor procedure for an elbow infection, and is expected to miss 7-10 days of training camp.

    Advice: Although this clearly isn't a long-term worry, it is something of a concern for Bryant's re-draft fantasy outlook. He's trying to hold off Markus Wheaton to start in two-receiver sets after playing less than a third of Pittsburgh's offensive snaps as a rookie. Bryant is expected to be held out of the Steelers' preseason opener. We'll monitor Bryant's status closely until he returns. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:57 pm

  • Devin Smith (ribs) expected to miss 4-6 weeks
    Jets rookie WR Devin Smith (ribs) is expected to be sidelined 4-6 weeks.

    Advice: He'll miss all of training camp and the preseason. Smith is dealing with a punctured lung in addition to broken ribs, putting his Week 1 status in serious question. He'll be behind Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, and Jeremy Kerley when he returns, making Smith an unlikely early-season contributor. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:10 pm
