      Dareus' attorney says the lineman has agreed to enter an NFL substance abuse program, the Associated Press reports.

      Analysis: Completing such a program would allow to Dareus' felony charges on possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia to be potentially dropped. Dareus was away from the Bills on Monday to deal with this issue, and though he's back with the team now he still needs to complete his conditioning test later in the week (he's already flunked in once) in order to get back on the practice field. The league hasn't said anything yet about a possible suspension for the troubled lineman.

      Spikes left Monday's training camp practice due to muscle cramps and coach Doug Marrone isn't sure if he'll be able to return for Tuesday's session, BuffaloBills.com reports.

      Analysis: The issue was likely due to the heat, as a few other Bills seemed to have the same difficulties. Spikes, a newcomer who played for the Patriots his first four years in the league, is expected to improve Buffalo's run defense, which has been abysmal for the last few seasons.

    • Jones has been placed on the...

      Jones has been placed on the non-football injury list with an ankle injury, Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

      Analysis: There's no indication that Jones' injury is serious, and he wasn't placed on the physically unable to perform list. He's likely just dealing with a minor ailment acquired in the offseason, but it will be worth keeping an eye on if he's limited during training camp. In the wake of last season's 51-712-10 receiving line, Jones is the best bet for targets among Cincinnati wide receivers, with the obvious exception of A.J. Green. However, the Bengals have a lot of mouths to feed, and typically favor a balanced offensive approach.

      Kelce is fully recovered from microfracture surgery on his knee, but he admitted that he still needs to build up the muscles in his leg, The Kansas City Star reports.

      Analysis: Kelce, a 2013 third-round draft pick, should have every opportunity to earn a significant role in the Kansas City passing game this season, after the knee injury limited him to just one snap as a rookie. Not only is the Chiefs' projected starting tight end (Anthony Fasano) more of a blocker than a pass catcher, but the team also lacks depth at wide receiver behind 2013 bust Dwayne Bowe. While it sounds like he wouldn't quite be ready to make an impact if the season started this week, Kelce has well over two months to work his way into game shape.

    • The Browns have no plans to...

      The Browns have no plans to cut Gordon, and the team expects him to report to training camp Friday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. "We're expecting him to report on Friday and be on the field," coach Mike Pettine said. "We have no plans to cut him I know there's been a lot of debate over that, but I don't see us having that debate."

      Analysis: After a number of run-ins with the law this offseason, Gordon is facing an indefinite suspension from the league for multiple violations of the substance abuse policy. He intends to appeal the suspension, but if he loses, he'll need to wait a full year before applying for reinstatement. Regardless, despite the distraction, the Browns appear committed to holding onto Gordon and helping him through his off-the-field issues. "If any of our players are in need of help, we'll do our best to provide it for them and also that we're going to do what we feel is best for the organization," Pettine said. "By league guidelines, whatever help we can provide him, we're going to do it. A Cleveland Brown is a Cleveland Brown. If we feel we can help him, let's help him. Sometimes you're handcuffed by the situation, so until it plays out then there's really nothing tangible we can do at this point."
