by KFFL Staff on June 1, 2006 @ 16:00:00 PDT

 



Quarterback

QB | Carson Palmer | Cincinnati Bengals | Injury News, Fantasy
The Associated Press reports Cincinnati Bengals QB Carson Palmer (knee) was at practice with no brace on his knee as he jumped over pads and threw passes during low-intensity drills Wednesday, May 31.

QB | Jon Kitna | Detroit Lions | Fantasy
Nicholas J. Cotsonika, of the Detroit Free Press, reports Detroit Lions QB Jon Kitna is preparing for the 2006 season like he will be the starting quarterback. "To be honest with you," he said Wednesday, May 31, "I'm not even thinking of it like I'm going to be anything but the starter." Kinta is not seeing the battle to be the team's starter as a competition. "I'm not looking at it as a quarterback competition," he continued. "I'm approaching it as I'm the starter until somebody tells me differently. And so I'm not every day counting my completions. I'm not doing it. I'm just going out and trying to be the best quarterback I can be." Head coach Rod Marinelli has not named a starting quarterback, nor has he given a timetable for naming one, but Kitna seems clearly in the lead. He took the first snaps at the minicamp in April, and he led the No. 1 unit Wednesday. "He's doing a good job," Marinelli said of Kitna. "We just let it play out. That's all we're doing. All of them are doing a good job right now, so we feel good about it."

QB | Kerry Collins | Free Agent Players | Free Agency News
Adam Schefter, of the NFL Network, reports the Tennessee Titans may still have an interest in free agent QB Kerry Collins (Raiders), if they release or trade QB Steve McNair. During the offseason, Collins considered retirement, and still might. But if the Titans could put together a lucrative enough package, then Collins could be enticed to play another season.

QB | Kelly Holcomb | Buffalo Bills | Fantasy
Adam Schefter, of the NFL Network, reports Buffalo Bills QB Kelly Holcomb appears to have the starting quarterback role entering training camp and it appears it is his job to lose.

QB | Brett Favre | Green Bay Packers | Fantasy
PackersNews.com reports Green Bay Packers QB Brett Favre participated in the team's organized activity practice Wednesday, May 31.

QB | Chad Pennington | New York Jets | Injury News, Fantasy
The Associated Press reports New York Jets QB Chad Pennington (shoulder) threw again at practice Wednesday, May 31. Pennington participated in 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills May 30, the first day of organized team activities. He did the same today, indicating he had no major setbacks from his first team practice since last September. A bigger test comes June 15, when the Jets start their veteran minicamp. It is unclear if his arm strength will ever be the same or whether he will be the starter in 2006.

QB | J.P. Losman | Buffalo Bills | Fantasy
Jay Skursi, of the Niagara Gazette, reports Buffalo Bills QB J.P. Losman is pretty much starting all over again in 2006. A year ago at this time, the Losman was set to take over as the starter. However, after a 2005 season that saw Buffalo go 5-11 and Losman struggle as the starter, the franchise went through a major reorganization. Gone are general manager Tom Donahoe, head coach Mike Mularkey and Losman's mentor, quarterbacks coach Sam Wyche. The Bills finished 28th in total offense and 29th in passing yards in 2005. "The situation that I'm in this year it's different. It's definitely different from a coaching-staff standpoint for the most part," Losman said. Losman is battling QBs Kelly Holcomb and Craig Nall for the starting spot. Head coach Dick Jauron has maintained his position that the three quarterbacks will go into training camp competing for the No. 1 job. He feels competition is the way to bring out the best in all players.

QB | Brian Griese | Chicago Bears | Fantasy
ChicagoBears.com reports Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith was asked if he could see a scenario where QB Brian Griese would win the starting quarterback position and he replied: "Rex Grossman is our starting quarterback. Brian Urlacher is our starting middle linebacker. Mike Brown is our starting safety. But we start every year over and all decisions will be based on performance in general. I love Rex and think that Rex is a heck of a quarterback. He's our starting quarterback. But every starter has to prove himself over again each year. Rex is looking forward to that and Brian Griese is looking forward to competing in training camp, and I'm looking forward to watching it all play out."

QB | Vince Young | Tennessee Titans | Fantasy
Terry McCormick, of the Nashville City Paper, reports Tennessee Titans QB Vince Young is not taking anytime off even though the team's organized activities are completed. He collected the telephone numbers of his receivers and tight ends. "If I need anything, I'll get those guys out here to work, so I can get the timing down and just continue working like that, even though the coaches aren't around," he said. "So that when they come back, I'll be a little bit ahead."

QB | Matt Hasselbeck | Seattle Seahawks | Injury News, Fantasy
The Tacoma News Tribune reports Seattle Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck (foot) reportedly was using crutches on his way into an airline promotional event at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport Thursday, May 25. He said the injury was a minor, bruised foot tendon, according to Don Wilson, a Port of Seattle employee assigned to the event. Wilson said Hasselbeck arrived in the airport's Concourse A using crutches. He said curious fans asked the star quarterback what had happened, and Hasselbeck said he had a bruised tendon in his foot and he was using the crutches only to keep the foot from swelling. The Seahawks' next minicamp begins June 5.

QB | David Carr | Houston Texans | Fantasy
Nick Schenck, of HoustonTexans.com, reports Houston Texans QB David Carr is excited about the clean slate the coaching staff has presented the team, "They haven't brought up anything from the past." Head coach Gary Kubiak said Carr has had the most to learn of anyone on the team but has handled it well. Kubiak has emphasized to Carr that he is the leader on the field, but he has 10 players on the field to help shoulder the responsibility. Kubiak did admit that the Texans would probably go only as far as Carr would take them.

QB | Billy Volek | Tennessee Titans | Fantasy
Titansonline.com reports Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher was asked how QB Billy Volek is handling his chance to be a starting quarterback and Fisher replied: "Billy has always handled his opportunities very well. He has come off of the bench when Steve's been hurt, for example in the Atlanta game several years ago and with a number of other starts. So he's handled it well. He loves to play and he's very competitive."


Running Back

RB | Tatum Bell | Denver Broncos | Fantasy
Jeff Legwold, of the Rocky Mountain News, reports Denver Broncos RB Tatum Bell wants to be the team's main option at running back for the 2006 season. "We were second in the league (rushing) last year rotating, so we should be in the top five again if we rotate," said Bell. "But I feel like I can be in the top five if I get those carries (laughs). I'm really just going to crank it up a notch. This year, I am not taking no for an answer. If I stay healthy, I feel like I'll be the man, that's just how I see it."

RB | Fred Taylor | Jacksonville Jaguars | Fantasy
Bart Hubbuch, of the Florida Times-Union, reports Jacksonville Jaguars RB Fred Taylor is continuing to workout from home instead of with the team during the team's voluntary minicamps.

RB | Reuben Droughns | Cleveland Browns | Fantasy
Mary Kay Cabot, of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, reports Cleveland Browns general manager Phil Savage is concerned about Cleveland Browns RB Reuben Droughns' domestic violence charges. "Anytime a player has an issue off the field, you're concerned about it," Savage said. "We extended [the contract of] Reuben this spring, and with that comes more responsibility."

RB | Frank Gore | San Francisco 49ers | Injury News, Fantasy
Chrissy Mauck, of SF49ers.com, reports San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (shoulders) will remain out of team drills until training camp. He is recovering from surgery on both shoulders.

RB | DeShaun Foster | Carolina Panthers | Injury News, Fantasy
The Associated Press reports Carolina Panthers RB DeShaun Foster (ankle) opened the team's minicamp Wednesday, May 31, on the practice field. He declared himself fit to be the team's starting running back and said, "I've been looking forward to it for a while, and now it's finally here. So I am going to try to make the best of it." Foster participated in individual drills and took handoffs from QB Jake Delhomme.

RB | DeAngelo Williams | Carolina Panthers | Fantasy
Panthers.com reports Carolina Panthers head coach John Fox said rookie RB DeAngelo Williams is making good progress. "He's looked very, very quick thus far. He's got great explosion, great vision. As far as where we are right now, he's looked very good. The real test is when we get in pads and in game situations and how guys react under that pressure."

RB | Curtis Martin | New York Jets | Injury News, Fantasy
The Associated Press reports New York Jets RB Curtis Martin (knee) practiced with the team Wednesday, May 31. Martin is coming off surgery on his right knee in December.

RB | Edgerrin James | Arizona Cardinals | Fantasy
Darren Urban, of the East Valley Tribune, reports the Arizona Cardinals begin their final 11 voluntary organized team activities of the offseason Wednesday, May 31, at their Tempe complex and RB Edgerrin James won't be there. James won't attend the three workouts this week and has informed the team. James is expected to participate in some of the workouts, the Cardinals have practices June 5-8 and 12-15, although whether he returns next week or the week after remains unclear. James did participate in the Cardinals' first three voluntary workouts of the offseason held just prior to their post-draft mandatory minicamp. James did the same during most of his offseasons when playing for the Indianapolis Colts, preferring to work out in his home state of Florida.

RB | LenDale White | Tennessee Titans | Injury News, Fantasy
Terry McCormick, of the Tennessee City Paper, reports Tennessee Titans rookie RB LenDale White (hamstring) will be limited during the team's organized activities in June. "If it was up to me and this was college, I'd probably be out there by now, but they take care of you a lot more up here, and they want to make sure it's a one-time deal," White said. "They don't want me to keep coming back with a hamstring that's pulled. So I'm happy, because I want this to be a one-time deal. I don't like sitting on the sidelines and doing all the rehab. I'd rather be in the action, jumping around in the fire."

RB | Carnell Williams | Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Fantasy
Martin Fennelly, of the Tampa Tribune, reports Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Carnell Williams wants to be the best running back in the league. "I want to be that guy, best in the league," Williams said. "I want those rushing titles, championship titles, Pro Bowls. I want to catch the ball. I want to be the best there is." After the big start in 2005, and his nagging foot injury, he gained only 82 yards in four games. But he came on strong to finish with a team rookie record 1,178 yards. Then the playoff game: just 49 yards and that fumble. After last season's performance, it is clear his best days are ahead of him. The team is expected to improve the offensive line that Williams runs behind. He wishes training camp began today. "I dream big," Williams said. "I set my goals big. Just being the man. Just dominating. I've always been told if you're going to do anything in life, do it big. So that's what I'm chasing. If you don't dream big, why even dream? It's what I want."

RB | Julius Jones | Dallas Cowboys | Fantasy
Mac Engel, of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, reports Dallas Cowboys RB Julius Jones is looking to have a big year in his third season with in the NFL. Jones said, "I feel like that every year, but especially this being my third year. I've had two decent years, and this year I'm looking to have a really big year. I want to make it through the whole season, and if I do that, that's possible." Jones has been limited to 21 NFL games in two season due to injuries.

RB | Ricky Williams | CFL | Transaction
Jeff Darlington, of the Palm Beach Post, reports Miami Dolphins RB Ricky Williams signed a one-year contract with the Toronto Argonauts worth more than $240,000 after receiving formal permission from the Dolphins to play in the CFL Sunday, May 28. The contract makes him the highest paid running back in the CFL.

RB | Cedric Benson | Chicago Bears | Fantasy
ChicagoBears.com reports Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith was asked about the team's running back situation and he replied: "I think that will work itself out. Last year it really wasn't a competition because Cedric Benson missed all of training camp. This year, Cedric has been here throughout (the offseason), the entire time. Everything starts over this year. We really like them both (Benson and RB Thomas Jones). I think there will be enough carries for three running backs through the course of a tough year."


Wide Receiver

WR | Keary Colbert | Carolina Panthers | Injury News
Brett Borden, of Panthers.com, reports Carolina Panthers WR Keary Colbert (ankle) wants to return strongly from a disappointing 2005 season in which he only recorded 25 catches for 282 yards and two touchdowns, a drastic decrease from his previous season's numbers. While he did play most of the season with pain in his ankle caused by bone spurs, Colbert does not use that as an excuse and expects to play at his best no matter what. "(Injuries are) an excuse," said Colbert. "Just because I had surgery, that doesn't mean that was the reason for the year. …An injury is an injury. If you can walk and you can run, you can play."

WR | Matt Jones | Jacksonville Jaguars | Fantasy
Bart Hubbuch, of the Florida Times-Union, reports Jacksonville Jaguars WR Matt Jones was assigned by Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio to study game film of Oakland Raiders WR Randy Moss during the offseason. "He's got some of that freakish athleticism that Moss has," Del Rio said. "He's got the ability to catch the ball and really do things down the field that some people will never be able to do."

WR | Joe Horn | New Orleans Saints | Fantasy
Jim Corbett, of the USA Today, reports New Orleans Saints WR Joe Horn, who at 34 says he's in the best shape of his career, has been taking on-field mental repetitions with new Saints' QB Drew Brees, whose throwing has been limited after surgery in January. "We go through plays, and Drew will say, 'Joe, this is what I'm going to do when the DB is here,' " Horn says. "Drew seems like a cool dude."

WR | Braylon Edwards | Cleveland Browns | Injury News, Fantasy
Adam Schefter, of the NFL Network, reports the Cleveland Browns are hoping WR Braylon Edwards (knee) will be ready able to return by September or October.

WR | Santonio Holmes | Pittsburgh Steelers | Fantasy
Joe Bendel, of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, reports Pittsburgh Steelers WR Santonio Holmes could face up to 60 days in jail if convicted on charges of disorderly conduct. He is likely to get a fine or probation for the incident.

WR | Donte' Stallworth | New Orleans Saints | Injury News, Fantasy
FOXSports.com reports New Orleans Saints WR Donte' Stallworth (shoulder) is making good strides in his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery.

WR | Javon Walker | Denver Broncos | Injury News
Andrew Mason, of DenverBroncos.com, reports Denver Broncos WR Javon Walker (knee) has been working on learning his new team's offensive system despite the fact that he cannot yet compete in drills with his teammates. Walker said that the transition has been made easier since the Green Bay Packers, his former team, use similar terminology to the Broncos in offensive schemes.

WR | Drew Bennett | Tennessee Titans | Injury News, Fantasy
Jim Wyatt, writing for the Sporting News, reports Tennessee Titans WR Drew Bennett (knee) hasn't taken part in the team's minicamps as he continues to recover from knee surgery, but he's expected to be a major contributor this fall. Many expect Bennett to benefit from the acquisition of former New England Patriots WR David Givens, who should attract plenty of attention on his side. Bennett (6-5, 206) has great size and usually has a height advantage over smaller defensive backs.

WR | Deion Branch | New England Patriots | Fantasy
Michael Felger, of the Boston Herald, reports there is nothing new concerning the negotiations between the New England Patriots and Patriots' WR Deion Branch regarding a contract extension. The team's mandatory camp this year comes June 12-14, and there is curiosity in Patriot circles over whether Branch will skip it or not. Branch, who has one year to run on his rookie deal, said last month that "my job is to finish my (current) contract." His agent, Jason Chayut, refused comment last week. There's no doubt Branch wants to be paid like a true No. 1 receiver. Branch will admit he can be neutralized by double-teams. At 5-foot-9, 190 pounds, Branch isn't one of those receivers who a quarterback can just throw the ball to in a pile. Players such as WRs Terrell Owens, Randy Moss and Chad Johnson have proven they can beat any coverage anywhere on the field. Those are true No. 1s. Most observers agree that Branch, who has never been to a Pro Bowl, is a "second-tier No. 1." According to one source, Branch has told friends he's looking for bonus/guaranteed money in the range of $12 million, while the Patriots are telling Chayut they aren't responsible for how other teams pay for their players.

WR | Santana Moss | Washington Redskins | Fantasy
Paul Woody, writing for the Sporting News, reports Washington Redskins WR Santana Moss is getting a grasp of the offense very quickly. He has shown explosive ability off the line and has been getting open deep and making plays. He should only get better as he becomes more familiar with what the system has to offer in terms of pass routes.

WR | Roy E. Williams | Detroit Lions | Fantasy
Clark Judge, of SportsLine.com, reports Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Mike Martz singled out Lions WR Roy E. Williams in a conversation with Judge. Martz said the former first-round draft pick could be one of the league's star performers, if he can make it through a season without getting hurt. "He's at an elite level in terms of his ability," said Martz, "but he has a lot of conditioning and getting in shape to do. The guy's got terrific potential." Williams tailed off with the rest of the club in 2005. Martz isn't concerned about last year or the year before.


Tight End

TE | Kyle Brady | Jacksonville Jaguars | Fantasy
Bart Hubbuch, of the Florida Times-Union, reports Jacksonville Jaguars TE Kyle Brady will not attend veterans camp this week to take care of some personal matters. "Kyle has some personal issues dealing with his father in Pennsylvania that he's taking care of the next couple days," Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio said. "He'll be joining us the next time we're on the field."

TE | Vernon Davis | San Francisco 49ers | Fantasy

TE | Jermaine Wiggins | Minnesota Vikings | Fantasy
FoxSports.com reports Minnesota Vikings TE Jermaine Wiggins, who was listed at 6-2, 260 pounds last season, was noticeably thinner at the Vikings' second minicamp earlier this month. Head coach Brad Childress had told a group of players he wanted them to lose weight after the first minicamp. "That's nobody's business but ours," Childress said when asked who lost the most weight.

TE | Desmond Clark | Chicago Bears | Fantasy
Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports the Chicago Bears explained away the decision not to draft a tight end by saying they remained true to their board. That means TE Desmond Clark will have another chance to meet the expectations created for him when he came on board in 2003. Early indicators are he has had a solid offseason.


Place Kicker

PK | Billy Cundiff | Green Bay Packers | Fantasy
Lori Nickel, of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, reports the Green Bay Packers will have a battle that will last through training camp at both punter and place kicker. Green Bay Packers PK Billy Cundiff and PK Dave Rayner will battle for the right to kick field goals. Green Bay Packers P B.J. Sander and P Jon Ryan will be in competition for the starting punter position. "These guys are going to tell us who is going to be the guy," said Green Bay special teams coordinator Mike Stock. "Somebody will emerge, and if takes through the pre-season of all the games we're going to be involved with, then so be it."


Defensive Line

DL | Junior Ioane | New York Giants | Transaction
The New York Giants have once again signed DL Junior Ioane to a one-year contract that includes a base salary of $585,000. He was signed last week, apparently released and now brought back to the team.

DL | Brodrick Bunkley | Philadelphia Eagles | Fantasy

DL | Renaldo Wynn | Washington Redskins | Injury News
FoxSports.com reports Washington Redskins DE Renaldo Wynn's (forearm) healing forearm is preventing him from fully preparing to play any spot. He can't do any weight room work on his upper body, which he typically spun as a positive "because it allows me to work more on my legs and that's where your power comes from. My main goal is to be 100 percent for training camp (which opens on July 31)."

DL | Richard Seymour | New England Patriots | Fantasy
Mike Reiss, of the Boston Globe, reports New England Patriots DL Richard Seymour is embracing his role as a team leader. "Any time I see a young guy who is hungry and willing to listen, I go out of my way to help them," he said. "If you want to help yourself, then I want to help you. That's my attitude and approach."


Linebacker

LB | Al Wilson | Denver Broncos | Injury News
Andrew Mason, of DenverBroncos.com, reports Denver Broncos LB Al Wilson (thumb) is still not 100 percent in his recovery from a fractured right thumb. Wilson said, "The strength is coming back. It's not quite 100 percent yet, but hopefully, by Game 1, it will be." The screws to stabilize his thumb will remain in place, but Wilson does not expect them to cause any problems for him during the 2006 season.

LB | Boss Bailey | Detroit Lions | Injury News
Detroit Lions head coach Rod Marinelli did not say if LB Boss Bailey (ankle) will be ready for the start of training camp, instead saying that he wanted him to get healthy first before making a decision.

LB | Shawne Merriman | San Diego Chargers | Fantasy
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports San Diego Chargers LB Shawne Merriman is training hard to prepare for training camp and the regular season. He is boxing not to fight, but to become a better football player. "I can guarantee you 110 percent nobody in the league is doing this kind of workout," Merriman said. "It gets tough. You think you don't have it in you; you have to find a way to finish it." He has added 10 pounds of muscle and lost more body fat. "I'm faster than I've ever been because I've cut so much body fat. I feel so much better. It's scary. I don't think I played that well (last season) compared to what I can do. I'm going to be a lot better this year. It's not even going to be close."

LB | David Pollack | Cincinnati Bengals | Injury News, Fantasy
Kevin Goheen, of the Associated Press, reports Cincinnati Bengals LB David Pollack (foot) knows the team has to play better defense if they want to achieve their goal of winning the Super Bowl. We've got to keep working hard and practicing hard and put ourselves into position to make plays," he said. "We've got to cut back on our mental errors and fit where we're supposed to fit."

LB | Ryan Claridge | New England Patriots | Fantasy
Michael Felger, of the Boston Herald, reports New England Patriots LB Ryan Claridge is back with the team after recovering from a shoulder injury in Las Vegas last season. He will be in competition for a key role in the defense this season. "Just being around the guys, Tedy Bruschi, Larry Izzo, Don Davis, I can see from a distance how they do things," Claridge said. "I'm an idiot if I don't follow those guys and run into their back. What they do works, and they know everything. I can take information from them every day."


Cornerback

CB | Antrel Rolle | Arizona Cardinals | Injury News
The Arizona Republic reports Arizona Cardinals CB Antrel Rolle (knee) rode the stationary bike and performed agility drills as he rehabilitates after arthroscopic surgery to remove scar tissue in his left knee two weeks ago. He injured the knee in October, had surgery and was limited to five games.

CB | Will Peterson | Free Agent Players | Injury News
Arthur Staple, of Newsday, reports New York Giants general manager Ernie Accorsi commented earlier Friday, May 26, about the release of Giants' CB Will Peterson (back). "We just had him here for a battery of tests and reached the conclusion we could not wait any longer," Accorsi said. "This is a very disappointing development for our ball club." Peterson played only two games last season before a possible stress fracture in his back ended his season. Peterson had been rehabbing on his own and checking in with the Giants' medical staff.

CB | Johnathan Joseph | Cincinnati Bengals | Fantasy
Kevin Goheen, of the Associated Press, reports Cincinnati Bengals WR Chad Johnson likes what he has seen out of Cincinnati Bengals rookie CB Johnathan Joseph, although not enough to give Joseph credit for stopping him. "He's good, though, man. He's very good and he's going to be a great addition to this team defensively," said Johnson. "Some of the things I've seen him do out there he's ahead of the game as a defensive back and mentally. He'll be a great help."


Strong Safety

SS | Keith Lewis | San Francisco 49ers | Injury News

SS | Donovin Darius | Jacksonville Jaguars | Injury News
Bart Hubbuch, writing for the Sporting News, reports Jacksonville Jaguars S Donovin Darius (knee) appears to be well ahead of the curve in terms of his recovery from a torn knee ligament that limited him to just two games last season. Darius wasn't allowed to do much by the coaching staff in minicamp earlier this month, but he made up for that absence during the passing camp that followed two weeks later. During the passing camp, it was difficult to tell he had ever been injured based on how smooth and fluid his motion was.

SS | Mike Brown | Chicago Bears | Injury News
ChicagoBears.com reports Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith was asked about the health of Bears' S Mike Brown (calf) and he replied: "Mike is completely healed. He won't be limited in any way. Mike is an All-Pro football player and we're expecting at least that and more from him this season."


Free Safety

FS | Clinton Hart | San Diego Chargers | Free Agency News
Kevin Acee, writing for the Sporting News, reports San Diego Chargers S Clinton Hart is impressing coaches and teammates and could be considered the early leader in the race to start at strong safety ahead of S Terrence Kiel and S Bhawoh Jue.
