San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore is unlikely to play in the preseason this year. RBs Carlos Hyde and Jewel Hampton have both looked good so far during training camp. The injuries to RBs Kendall Hunter (knee) and LaMichael James (elbow) have left the team thin at the running back position. RB Marcus Lattimore isn't practicing yet due to physical limitations and not the mental side of his recovery from a significant knee injury in college.
FANTASY TIP: The Niners have even more reason to try to keep Gore healthy heading into the regular season now. With Hunter out for the year, Hyde's price will rise drastically, likely making him somewhat overvalued as a handcuff to Gore.

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb doesn't think he's done enough yet in his career to deserve a contract extension from the team. He's entering the final year of his rookie deal, and Cobb had a breakout year in 2012 with 80 catches for 954 yards and eight touchdowns. "I got injured in a way that there was nothing I could do about it," Cobb said. "I think my job is just to come out here every day, do what I'm supposed to, continue to work hard, and hopefully my time will come."

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy and LB Trent Cole squared off in a fight during training camp Sunday, July 27. "Next thing you know, they're on the ground scuffling," LB Brandon Graham said. "It was just a friendly thing, you know. They're always competing and talking stuff to each other. It was just one of those things." The fight was broken up before any damage was done.

Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson will be used strictly on defense this season and will not see time in any offensive situations. The Cardinals have excess capacity at wide receiver this year. Coach Bruce Arians plans on relieving Peterson of his punt return duties.
FANTASY TIP: Peterson's fantasy value will take a hit without the special teams presence, because he has returned punts before this season. However, Peterson claims focusing on his CB duties will make him a better defender, and individual defensive player leagues could see an added boost from Peterson.
