QB | Michael Vick | Philadelphia Eagles | Injury
Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick has been cleared of any charges in a shooting outside a nightclub after the Virginia Beach police said they have identified who the shooter was in the incident, reports Jeff McLane, of the Philadelphia Inquirer. The Eagles also looked into the incident and have not found any information that would lead them to believe Vick was involved, which means the team is not expected to release Vick. The Virginia Beach police have said the case is closed at this time.

QB | Matthew Stafford | Detroit Lions | Fantasy
Detroit Lions TE Tony Scheffler said he has been working on building chemistry with QB Matthew Stafford during offseason workouts and looked in rhythm during practices, reports Carlos Monarrez, of the Detroit Free Press. "I'm starting to get a little bit of chemistry with Matthew, and I love being in this offense. It's fun," Scheffler said. "There's a lot of chances for guys to get favorable matchups and kind of put the onus on you to step up and make plays."

QB | JaMarcus Russell | Free Agent | Free Agents
Authorities would not comment whether they believe free-agent QB JaMarcus Russell (Raiders) had been dealing codeine prior to his arrest, according to Mike Herndon, of the Mobile Press-Register. Police did not find a prescription for the opiate in Russell's home at the time of the arrest.

Running Back

RB | Shonn Greene | New York Jets | Fantasy
New York Jets RB Shonn Greene said he does not plan on changing his punishing running style, according to Manish Mehta, of the New York Daily News. "We don't run out of bounds. I've been taught that all my life … I don't think that's going to help the way I play by doing that. If I just go out and do what I do, everything else will take care of itself," Greene said. "That's what I do. You can't worry, 'Oh, what if I do this? What if I run out of bounds?' No, that's not the game of football to me. Football is a hard-nosed game."

RB | Ronnie Brown | Miami Dolphins | Injury, Fantasy
Miami Dolphins RB Ronnie Brown (foot) would like to get a multi-year deal contract with the team but will not hold out during training camp if he does not receive a new contract, according to Omar Kelly, of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

RB | Harvey Unga | NFL Draft Prospect | Draft
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could have interest in Brigham Young RB Harvey Unga in the later rounds of the NFL supplemental draft if another team does not select him, reports the St. Petersburg Times' Stephen Holder. Unga appears to have the combination of size and speed, which the Buccaneers are lacking in a running back.

Wide Receiver

WR | Wes Welker | New England Patriots | Injury, Fantasy
A Week 1 return for New England Patriots WR Wes Welker (knee) is certainly a possibility, if not a probability, according to Albert Breer, of The Boston Globe. However, that is not to say anything should be assumed, but it wouldn't be stunning at all to see him playing. The bigger question may revolve around how effective he can be early on.

WR | Eric Decker | Denver Broncos | Injury
Denver Broncos WR Eric Decker (foot) is on schedule to join the team for the start of training camp, reports The Associated Press. Decker is participating in Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's camp at the University of Minnesota's campus this week, running routes, catching passes and doing drills.

WR | Dicky Lyons Jr. | Free Agent | Transaction
The Denver Broncos have released WR Dicky Lyons Jr. and WR Landis Williams, reports's Eric Detweiler.

Tight End

TE | Kellen Winslow | Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Injury, Fantasy
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Kellen Winslow (knee) participated in latter part of offseason workouts away from the team but not appear to have any discomfort of obvious limitations in range of motion, reports Stephen F. Holder, of St. Petersburg Times.
