Steelers' Le'Veon Bell: Still not cleared to run
Le'Veon Bell (knee) still has not been cleared to run, according to ESPN.com staff writer Jeremy Fowler. "Once I get cleared to run, I'll be happy," Bell said. "I just want to get back to how I am and get ready for next season."
Bell is expected to be ready for Week 1, but has a challenging rehabilitation process ahead of him for the torn MCL and PCL sustained in Week 8 of the 2015 season. A healthy Bell tops many fantasy cheat sheets, so his progess should be monitored during the offseason right up to draft day.
Browns' Johnny Manziel: Criminal investigation reopened
The Dallas Police Department has reopened its investigation into an alleged domestic violence incident committed by Johnny Manziel last Saturday morning.
On Friday, the department received a complaint of the alleged assault, spurring a renewed effort to determine if anything criminal occurred during the encounter. As the listed suspect, Manziel could now be facing legal concerns in addition to any discipline that the NFL may hand down.
Jaguars' Allen Hurns: Expects to start running in one month
Allen Hurns (sports hernia) expects to start running in approximately one month, John Oehser of the Jacksonville Jaguars ' official site reports. As for the offseason, he said, "OTAs, I'll definitely be ready. I'll be doing everything I'm supposed to be."
Hurns gutted out injury after injury in his second season en route to 64 catches (on 105 targets) for 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns in 15 games. Missing only one outing due to his residence in the concussion protocol, he nonetheless required sports hernia surgery once the campaign concluded. If he indeed upholds his desired training schedule, he'll be present at the beginning of the Jaguars' offseason program in April.
Patriots' Malcolm Butler: Recovering from sprained knee
Butler became instantly famous with his game-winning interception of Russell Wilson in last year's Super Bowl, and the loss of Darrelle Revis in free agency elevated him to the
Seahawks' Thomas Rawls: Expects to be healthy by training camp
Rawls' season came to an abrupt end in Week 14, when he sustained a broken ankle, but not before notching 147 carries for 830 yards, nine receptions (on 11 targets) for 76 yards, and five touchdowns. He was afforded seven starts with Marshawn Lynch on the mend often, powering his breakout with four 100-yard performances. Still in the early stages of his recovery, Rawls requires a scooter to move about, as his foot remains in a cast. With Lynch's future with the Seahawks, let alone football, up in the air, Rawls may have a starting gig locked up in the not-too-distant future.
Broncos' T.J. Ward: Listed as probable
Ward took a seat at the tail end of the season for three games due to an ankle injury, but four appearances in the interim have confirmed that he can play through the pain. In 14 outings this season (including playoffs), he's posted 71 tackles (55 solo), two sacks, and two forced fumbles.
Broncos' Darian Stewart: Probable for Sunday
After failing to practice last week, Stewart is now in line to fulfill expectations and suit up in Sunday's season-defining tilt. On the season (including playoffs), he racked up 71 tackles (53 solo), two interceptions, two fumble recoveries, and one forced fumble in 17 games.
Panthers' Jared Allen: Probable for Sunday
Allen has endured an interesting past few weeks, which included a DNP in the NFC championship game, no presence on last week's injury report, and a reappearance this week with a limited showing Wednesday. However, he practiced in a full capacity both Thursday and Friday, and head coach Ron Rivera even expects Allen to start Sunday, according to the Charlotte Observer. In 13 games with the
Panthers' Thomas Davis: Listed as probable
Thomas (forearm) is listed as probable for Sunday's Super Bowl versus the Broncos, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.
Despite tending to a broken right forearm, which he sustained in the NFC championship game, Thomas in fact is expected to start, according to head coach Ron Rivera. In the regular season,
Panthers' Mike Tolbert: Probable for Sunday
Tolbert spent the week immediately after the NFC championship game in the trainer's room rather than the practice field, but full practices dominated this week, paving the way for active status Sunday. Nonetheless, he'll likely be contained to short-yardage situations behind Jonathan Stewart.
