Dolphins' Dion Jordan: Not a lock to make the Dolphins even when reinstated
Dion Jordan, DE, MIA

News: Jordan is not a lock to make the Dolphins squad out of training camp even if he is reinstated from his suspension, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Jordan is due a roster bonus of almost $1.7 million if he is still with Miami on the fifth day of training camp. That price may be to much to pay for a Miami club who really don't know how Jordan will play coming off a suspension. He may have to show an awful lot in quick order to assure the Miami brass that he is worth that roster bonus.

Kenny Anunike
Broncos' Kenny Anunike: Will begin camp on PUP list
Kenny Anunike, DE, DEN
7/25/2016
News: Anunike (knee) is slated to begin training camp on the Broncos' active/PUP list, the Denver Post reports.

Anunike was active for just three games in 2015 before landing on IR with a nagging knee injury he originally had surgery for in August of 2015. Last month he said he expected to be ready for training camp, so his placement on the PUP list either means he suffered a setback in his recovery, or Denver is simply exercising caution with their up-and-coming defensive end. When cleared to play, Anunike will compete with Darius Kilgo, Jared Crick, Phil Walker and Vance Walker for depth positions along the defensive line.

Jairus Byrd
Saints' Jairus Byrd: Finally healthy to start training camp
Jairus Byrd, FS, NO
7/25/2016
News: Byrd was not placed on the Saints' active/PUP list for the first time in his three-year career in New Orleans, ESPN.com reports.

Though healthy for the start of camp, Byrd did miss the entirety of the Saints' offseason program rehabbing the knee injury that has plagued him since inking a six-year, $54 million deal ahead of the 2014 season. Hopefully, for the Saints, Byrd's 2016 training camp presence will smoothly translate to an improved performance in the upcoming campaign for a New Orleans secondary that allowed the 31st-most passing yards in the NFL during 2015.

Hau'oli Kikaha
Saints' Hau'oli Kikaha: Placed on PUP list
Hau'oli Kikaha, OLB, NO
7/25/2016
News: Kikaha (knee) was placed on the Saints' active/PUP list, ESPN.com reports.

Kikaha had torn his left ACL during the Saints' offseason program in June, so his placement on the PUP list is an optimistic move by GM Mickey Loomis that will give the second-rounder an outside chance of returning later on in the season.

Vincent Brown
Saints' Vincent Brown: Will begin camp on PUP list
Vincent Brown, WR, NO
7/25/2016
News: Brown (undisclosed) will begin training camp on the Saints' active/PUP list, ESPN.com reports.

The Saints took a flier on Brown in an effort to deepen their wide out corps in May, presumably to add a veteran presence in the aftermath of Marques Colston's release. Being how Brandin Cooks, Brandon Coleman, Willie Snead and Michael Thomas combine for three years of NFL experience, Brown, a five-year NFL veteran, has more experience than the top-four wide receivers currently atop the Saints' depth chart. Should Brown make the final 53-man roster out of camp, he will remain unlikely to achieve fantasy relevance in 2016.

Keenan Lewis
Saints' Keenan Lewis: Placed on PUP list
Keenan Lewis, CB, NO
7/25/2016
News: Lewis has been placed on the Saints' physically unable to perform list to start training camp, Mike Triplett of ESPN NFL Nation reports.

Lewis had sports hernia surgery in January and took reps during offseason workouts, but the team has still placed hi on the PUP list, which comes as a bit of a surprise. He'll likely be able to play sometime in the preseason, but it's unclear when that will be. Look for Delvin Breaux and Damian Swann to see some extra reps while Lewis is kept out of practice.

Josh Gordon
Browns' Josh Gordon: Welcomed back by Browns
Josh Gordon, WR, CLE
7/25/2016
News: Head of football operations Sashi Brown relayed Monday that the Browns plan to give Gordon a chance to redeem himself with the franchise, now that the NFL has reinstated the wideout on a conditional basis, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

In a statement posted on the team's official site, Brown noted, "with the league's decision to afford Josh the opportunity to resume his career, he will be with us for the start of training camp. At that time, we will discuss directly with Josh the direction of our team, our expectations of our players and a plan to support him on and off the field." While the talented 25-year-old wideout has plenty to prove after being away from game action for so long, if he is able to meet the off-field expectations of the Browns, it looks like he'll have an opportunity, as soon as Week 5 of the 2016 season, to contribute to the team's offense in some capacity. How much of an impact he'd be ready to make -- and how quick that might happen after his four-game suspension ends -- remains to be seen, but Gordon's fantasy upside is obviously intriguing, in the event that things continue to move forward for him in a positive direction.

Dion Lewis
Patriots' Dion Lewis: Set to open camp on PUP list
Dion Lewis, RB, NE
7/25/2016
News: Lewis (knee) is set to open training camp on the Patriots' active/PUP list, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Lewis' inclusion on the list comes as little surprise, given that he is bouncing back from surgery this past November to repair a torn ACL. To date, his progress appears to be going well, but the running back will be one to watch in the coming weeks, nonetheless. Players on the active/PUP list are eligible to come off the list (and resume practice) at any time during training camp, though as long as Lewis is out or slowed at all, the likes of UDFA D.J. Foster and veteran Donald Brown figure to have added opportunities to make cases to secure spots in the Patriots' 2016 backfield.

Clay Harbor
Patriots' Clay Harbor: Sidelined at start of camp
Clay Harbor, TE, NE
7/25/2016
News: Harbor (unspecified injury) is set to open training camp on the Patriots' active/PUP list, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Harbor figures to secure a roster spot with the Patriots, assuming his current injury issue doesn't linger, but given that the tight end works behind both Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett, fantasy relevance remains a break or two away.

Analysis: 

Roy Helu
Raiders' Roy Helu: Placed on PUP list
Roy Helu, RB, OAK
7/25/2016
News: Helu (hip) has been placed on the Raiders' physically unable to perform list for the start of training camp.

Helu did not practice in any of the Raiders' offseason workouts while recovering from offseason hip procedures, and he'll continue to sit out of practice as training camp begins. It's unclear how long he'll remain out for, but the more time he misses the more likely it is that he gets cut, as Oakland has several quality running backs also on the roster, including Latavius Murray, DeAndre Washington, and Taiwan Jones.
