Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick says he'll be healthy for training camp


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:46 pm ET) Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said he is on schedule to be healthy to participate in training camp, the team announced.

"I'm on pace right now to be healthy for training camp," he said.

Fitzpatrick's 2014 season ended when he sustained a broken leg in December. He is expected to compete with Geno Smith for the starting quarterback role.


Giants waive running back Michael Cox


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) The Giants have waived running back Michael Cox, the team has announced.

Cox played in four games in 2014, having his season cut short after suffering a fractured leg in Week 10.

A seventh-round draft choice in 2013, Cox played in 18 games and started one in two seasons for the Giants.

Ravens TE Dennis Pitta hopeful for 2015 return


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta hopes to take the field in time for the 2015 season, but admits it's too early to determine if that goal can become a reality.

Pitta has undergone surgeries to repair a fractured and dislocated hip in each of the last two years.

"We still have some time to be able to assess where I'm at," Pitta told the Baltimore Sun. "I sure hope that I'll be on the field next year. That's my hope; that's my goal. We'll just see if I can get there."

Pitta has played in just seven games in the last two seasons combined.


Jaguars planning to play 2015 season without Justin Blackmon


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) As far as the Jaguars are concerned, Justin Blackmon will not be lining up at receiver for them this season. 

At least that's the approach Jacksonville is taking. Blackmon has been indefinitely suspended since Nov. 1 2013 for three violations of the substance-abuse policy under the old CBA.

"Our process hasn't changed," Caldwell said, via ESPN.com. "[We] plan to go without him, but if he emerges, he emerges, and he's going to go in with those top guys and compete with those other guys. Hopefully we're able to get some news, but if not we weren't planning on [having Blackmon]. We're just going to go [without him]."

Before he can re-join the Jaguars, he'll need to file an application for reinstatement, with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell making a decision within a 60-day window. The application letter would include details of the treatment he's received. 

Since being selected with the fourth overall pick in the 2012 draft, Blackmon has only played in 20 games. He has 1,280 yards and six touchdowns in his career. 


Andre Ellington OK with Cardinals drafting another running back


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) If the Cardinals decide to draft a running back in one of the higher rounds, running back Andre Ellington would be OK with it. 

Ellington was a three-down back for Arizona last year that got plenty of touches in the running and passing games. But if the Cardinals use a high pick on a running back, that could cut into Ellington's touches. 

That's something that wouldn't bother Ellington. 

“It’s whatever will better our team,” Ellington told the team's website. “That’s most important. No one is going to hate any decisions. I’m sure those guys will make the best decisions to help the team. We’ll accept any guy who comes in.”

Another quality runner could help Ellington, who dealt with numerous injuries a year ago, in the long run. His season ended last December after undergoing hernia surgery. 


Recovering Lions MLB Tulloch: I could play now if needed


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Lions middle linebacker Stephen Tulloch has spoken encouragingly about his recovery from knee surgery, claiming he could play currently if necessary.

Tulloch ended his season in embarassing fashion, sustaining the injury celebrating a sack of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Tulloch was mimicking the move used in Rodgers' "Discount Double Check" commercials.

"I feel great," Tulloch told the team website. "...I have a good team of people down in Miami that take care of me. They've gotten me back to a point I can train with the team. I can lift weights and run around. It feels good to be back out there again."

Tulloch contributed to more than 100 tackles in five consecutive seasons before going down in 2014.


Colts' Vick Ballard said he'll be 100 percent by training camp


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Colts running back Vick Ballard said he's continued to stay on track with his recovery from a ruptured Achilles, according to Scout.com

Ballard has missed just about all of the previous two seasons due to injuries. He tore his Achilles before the 2014 season and was unable to play. When training camp comes around, it will mark almost a year from when he sustained the injury. 

He said he should be good to go for the start of camp, though.

“Yeah, definitely man,” Ballard said. “Training camp is a long time from now, so truth be told, I probably could participate now, but there’s no rush. Just trying to take my time with it.”

Ballard led the Colts in rushing as a rookie in 2012 with 814 yards and two touchdowns. He only played in one game in 2013 before tearing his ACL in a practice the following week. His Achilles tear came during the 2014 preseason. 


Giants WR Victor Cruz has no doubts he'll be ready for season opener


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is confident he'll be healthy enough to play in the team's season opener, reports NFL.com.

"There's zero doubts that I'll be playing in that first game," he said.

Cruz is attempting to comeback from a surgically-repaired knee and general manger Jerry Reese said the team is pleased with Cruz's progress.

"He looked good, he's running pretty good, right now and he's scheduled to be back ready for the opener for us," Reese said. "But until you get out there and turn it loose, you never know what a guy is going to do. But he looks great right now."

Cruz added that he intends to return to the same player he was before he suffered the knee injury.

"I do feel like I can continue to be the same guy that I was before," he said.

During his rehab, Cruz has been able to do some straight-line running, but has not been cutting on his knee, reports The Record


Ravens LB C.J. Mosley (wrist) will be limited in offseason work


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/22/2015) Linebacker C.J. Mosley, who underwent wrist surgery after last season, remains in a cast and will be limited as the Ravens begin their offseason practice schedule, according to The Baltimore Sun. 

Mosley led the Ravens in tackles and made the Pro Bowl as a rookie last season, but hurt the wrist in a December game. He is not participating in all of the weight work the team is doing but feels confident he will be at full strength come training camp. 

"Everything is progressing," he said. "I haven't had any major setbacks so far."


Patriots restructure LB Jerod Mayo's contract


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/22/2015) The Patriots are working on restructuring linebacker Jerod Mayo's contract in order to keep the injured team captain in New England, per Fox Sports. 

The two-time Pro Bowl backer tore his patella tendon last October, ending his season in Week 6. Mayo had an injury guarantee of $4.5 million, meaning the Patriots would have to pay him in full if they released him before he was fully healthy.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) After spending the last two seasons as a cornerback, the Raiders will move Taiwan Jones back to running back this season, reports CSNBayArea.com.

Jones was drafted in 2011 as a running back out of Eastern Washington. He has been playing in the defensive back field since the 2013 season. Jones missed 15 games last season with a foot injury.

Smith was entering the final year of his current contract with Baltimore. He totaled 28 tackles with one interception in eight games last season. In his first four season, Smith has played just one full year, playing 47 of a possible 64 games. He's totaled 140 tackles with five interceptions in those seasons.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Browns coach Mike Pettine said the team is very optimistic they will be able to sign safety Tashaun Gipson to a long-term contract extension, reports the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.

Gipson was not at the team's voluntary workout program Monday or Tuesday. The Browns have the right to match any offer to Gipson or receive a second-round pick.

Giants LB Beason hoping for health in 2015


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015)
Giants linebacker Jon Beason, who lost all but four games last season to a toe injury, beleives he can be "the best in the game" if he stays healthy in 2015, per NJ.com.
Injuries have limited Beason to a mere 24 games over the last four years. He understands that he's always one hit away from being sidelined again, but he also doesn't want to put too much thought or concern into it.
"You go into it and try to dot all the I's and cross all the T's and make sure you do everything possible to ... address the injury," he said. "But also what are the compensation patterns, what is the muscle that something else could happen to or other body part? Everything is connected and it is tough to gauge what is next, but you feel like you knock on wood and hopefully this year everything works out because you do your due dilligence."
Beason added that his goal is to play in all 16 games this season.

Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green not worrying about contract


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green was on hand for the team's voluntary workouts Monday and isn't worrying about his contract, according to the team's website. 

Green, who is entering a contract season, wants to focus on the upcoming season, not money.

"I handle the part of playing. I'm not hurting for money," said Green. "I got my option. That's enough for now. I'm just focused on football. Next year will take care of itself."

Green is expected to earn $10.176 million in 2015. He also noted he wasn't healthy for much of the 2014 season.

"I was not out there like I need to. I was never 100 percent.  I felt like I never played like I should have," Green said. "Yeah, I'm a 100 percent."

Green had 69 catches for 1,041 yards and six touchdowns in 13 games in 2014.

In eight games last year, Amukamara recorded 45 tackles (37 solo), 11 pass defenses and three interceptions.

Browns S Tashaun Gipson skips voluntary workout program


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/20/2015) Safety Tashaun Gipson was not part of the Browns' offseason workout programs, which started Monday, as he protests the second-round tender the team offered him, per Cleveland.com. 

Gipson, whose 11 interceptions over the past two seasons ranks second to the Seahawks' Richard Sherman, would make $2.356 million in 2015 if he doesn't sign a long-term deal with the Browns or another team first. 

The Browns would have the right to match any offer, and if they don't, the new team would have to give the Browns a second-round pick.


Chargers RB Danny Woodhead feeling healthy after broken fibula


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Chargers running back Danny Woodhead is starting to get back to normal this offseason. Woodhead suffered injuries to both his fibula and right ankle, which ended his season in Week 3 in 2014. He believes he's back to healthy and will report to for offseason workouts this week, according to the team's website.

"I feel really, really good," Woodhead said. "I really do. As far as the injury goes, that is something I'm not even thinking about. I'm thinking about trying to get better. I'm focusing on working on what I can do to be better than I was last year. Obviously I wasn't able to play a lot of games, so I should say I want to be better than I was that first season here."

Woodhead totaled over 1,000 all-purpose yards when healthy in 2013 with San Diego and scored eight touchdowns. 

"It's been a long process," Woodhead said. "But definitely it makes you hungrier when the game is taken away. It makes you realize how blessed you are to play it. Not that I didn't understand that before, but when it is taken away for such a long amount of time, it makes you even hungrier. You miss being out there with your brothers. I'm excited for this season. I'm always excited, but my mentality might even be younger and hungrier than ever before."


DeMeco Ryans likes improved Eagles' defense


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans likes the changes that the team has made to its defense in the offseason.

"We got better on the outside, which we struggled at last year,” Ryans said, per ESPN. “We had a lot of struggles there on the outside at the corner position, so I feel we've upgraded there with (Byron) Maxwell , a guy that you've seen make a lot of plays for the Seahawks. A guy like Kiko (Alonso), who his rookie year was a really outstanding player, up for defensive rookie of the year, a playmaker all over the field, and another guy in (Walter) Thurmond , who is expected to definitely push guys to be the starting corner on the other side. So I feel like we upgraded at a lot of positions, and I feel like it's really going to improve our defense."


49ers RB Carlos Hyde down to 220 pounds


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said running back Carlos Hyde has trimmed down to around 220 pounds so far this offseason, according to the Sacramento Bee

Hyde was listed at 235 pounds during the 2014 season, which would mean Hyde has lost somewhere int he area of 15 pounds. Baalke said that Hyde hasn't been in the 220 range since his early days in college at Ohio State and that he's looking "extremely good."

Hyde will compete with Reggie Bush for starting tailback duties this preseason, though both should contribute quite a bit in the 49ers' backfield. Bush, 30, was signed by the 49ers after the Lions released him this offseason.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Posluszny was placed in injured reserve in October, after tearing his pectoral muscle, and he missed the rest of the season. Posluszny said he's back to 100 percent, per Jaguars.com, and he hopes to be cleared to begin the team's offseason program next week. 

Posluszny is already running and lifting weights as normal.
