Report: Eric Ebron could line up in slot most of the time
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:00 pm ET) The Lions will run a lot of two-tight end sets with rookie Eric Ebron lining up in the slot "perhaps as much as two-thirds of the time," reports MLive.com. Brandon Pettigrew will be the in-line blocker.

New offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, formerly of the Saints, "saw how a pass-catching tight end such as Jimmy Graham could dice up a defense, and that is what the Lions have planned for Ebron," the paper said.


Carl Nicks cleared to play
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:48 am ET) Buccaneers guard Carl Nicks has been cleared for the start of training camp, reports the Tampa Tribune. Nicks' lingering toe injury is still a concern, however.

"Nicks has been cleared, but his future depends on how much pain he can tolerate," the paper said. "He says he can handle a lot."

Nicks missed 23 games the past two seasons with toe and foot injuries.


No restrictions on David Wilson
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:39 am ET) Giants running back David Wilson said he won't wear anything special to protect his neck. Wilson received full clearance Monday following last year's fusion surgery.

"The doctor said that I was good to go. I’m back to normal. I can play regular football with no special equipment, no medication, or anything else," Wilson said. 

The third-year pro added he's not worried about his stamina or taking that first big hit.

"No real concerns," he said. "I’m just excited, most definitely. I’m ready to get back out there and compete. I love competition so I haven’t been sitting on the couch. As I came out here and got started with training camp, I knew that my appointment was [Monday] and training camp is [Tuesday], so I prepared myself. Like I said, you want to be prepared to go out there and have fun."

Wilson will compete for snaps with Rashad Jennings and rookie Andre Williams.


Ravens' Ricky Wagner the frontrunner at right tackle
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:25 am ET) The Ravens are prepared to enter the season with 2013 fifth-rounder Ricky Wagner as their right tackle, reports ESPN.com. Baltimore let Michael Oher leave in free agency and didn't add a significant offensive tackle.

Wagner played 12 percent of the offensive snaps last year as an extra blocker, and worked with the starters throughout the offseason. He'll have to fend off Ryan Jensen to keep the starting job.

"It's now Wagner's job to lose," the report said.


Report: D.J. Hayden still not healthy
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:15 am ET) Raiders cornerback D.J. Hayden, who injured his ankle during OTAs, is still not healthy and might start training camp on the PUP list, reports 95.7 The Game in San Francisco. Hayden played in eight games as a rookie before a groin injury ended his season.

Browns to name starting QB before third preseason game
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:02 am ET) Browns coach Mike Pettine said he'll name a starting quarterback -- either Brian Hoyer or Johnny Manziel -- before the third preseason game Aug. 23 against the Rams, reports the Akron Beacon Journal

"It could be sooner, and that’s something we’re going to discuss," Pettine said. "It’ll be before the third preseason game. I just don’t have a date. I don’t know if I’ll set a date and kind of paint ourselves into a date, but it will be sooner than the third preseason game."


Steve Johnson will have to 'clearly win the job'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:51 am ET) 49ers receiver Steve Johnson, who turned 28 on Tuesday, is the frontrunner for the No. 3 job, "but he will have to clearly win the job due to his scheduled $3.925 million pay for this season," reports CSNBayArea.com. Johnson posted three straight 1,000-yard seasons before producing just 597 receiving yards in 12 games last year.

Miles Austin, Nate Burleson projected as starters
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:38 am ET) With Josh Gordon likely to be suspended, the Browns are poised to enter the season with Miles Austin and Nate Burleson as their starting outside receivers and Andrew Hawkins in the slot, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The paper calls it "one of the NFL's most pedestrian receiving groups."

Austin has battled hamstring injuries and caught just 24 passes last year. Burleson, 32, has six touchdown catches over the past three years.


Kyle Williams back from torn ACL
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:30 am ET) Chiefs receiver Kyle Williams, who tore the ACL in his left knee for the second time last year, was a full participant Monday as the team began a three-day camp for rookies and selected veterans, reports ESPN.com. Williams will vie to replace Dexter McCluster at slot receiver.

"The knee feels good," Williams told the website. "It feels stable. It feels like a solid knee. I feel like myself out there. I felt like last year when I came in I could help. I feel the same way this year."

Williams made 47 catches in four seasons with the 49ers.


Redskins add Mike Caussin, drop Kyle Nelson
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:18 am ET) The Redskins signed former Bills tight end Mike Caussin and waived long snapper Kyle Nelson.
