Team-By-Team Injuries
 Steven Jackson, RB, ATL8/20/2014 4:29:00 PM 
Description: Atlanta coach Mike Smith fully expects running back Steven Jackson (left hamstring) to be ready for Week 1, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter. Insight: Even if that\'s true, the injury is a reminder that Jackson isn\'t getting any younger. The 31-year-old missed four games with a strained right hamstring last year and rushed for just 3.5 ypc. Rookie Devonta Freeman has a good chance to start at some point this season.
 Brian Hoyer, QB, PIT8/20/2014 1:00:00 PM 
Description: The Browns have named Brian Hoyer the starting quarterback for Week 1, according to "He was the clear leader from the beginning," coach Mike Pettine said. "We\'ve maintained all along that if it was close, I would prefer to go with the more experienced player. Brian has done a great job in the meeting rooms and with his teammates on the practice field and in the locker room."  Insight: Hoyer started three games last season but tore his ACL early in the third one. In the two games in which Hoyer played heavily, tight end Jordan Cameron had 16 catches for 157 yards and four touchdowns on 23 targets. If Hoyer doesn\'t get off to a good start in the Browns\' first three games (at Pittsburgh, vs. New Orleans, vs. Baltimore), we could see the team make the switch to Johnny Manziel during the Week 4 bye.

 Rajon Rondo, G, BOS8/18/2014 2:04:00 PM 
Description: The latest rumor, courtesy of talk show host Tyler Spence, is for Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo is a trade with Sacramento. Insight: If true, this would be horrible news for Darren Collison\'s fantasy owners because as it stands he\'s set to be the Kings starting point guard. Of course, after a year of rumors concerning Rondo, we will believe it when someone actually pulls the trigger on the trade.
 Brook Lopez, C, BRK8/18/2014 1:58:00 PM 
Description: Nets center Brook Lopez has been cleared for all basketball activities and is expected to be ready for training camp, according to a SiriusXM NBA Radio report. Insight: Lopez only played 17 games last season before injuries struck, but he was playing at a high level. He averaged 20.7 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 0.9 apg, 1.8 bpg before leg injuries ended his season. He\'s only played 96 of 246 regular season games over the past three seasons making him a high-risk, high-reward fantasy option.

 Eric Staal, C, CAR7/30/2014 5:39:00 PM 
Description: Carolina center Eric Staal suffered a core muscle injury while training and needed to undergo surgery, according to Insight: GM Ron Francis said Staal should be ready for training camp. The 29-year-old had just 21 goals, 40 assists and 230 SOG over 79 games in 2013-14 after generating 18 goals, 35 assists and 152 SOG in 48 games during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season.
 Tyler Ennis, LW, BUF7/17/2014 3:34:00 PM 
Description: The Sabres have signed Tyler Ennis to a multiyear contract extension. Insight: The 24-year-old had a career-high 21 goals and added 22 assists and 210 SOG over 80 games in 2013-14. The talent is lacking in Buffalo so he likely won\'t be much better than that in 2014-15.
