Dallas Cowboys LB Sean Lee (knee) thinks he will return from his torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee completely healthy. Lee is with the team in California for his rehab, and it's possible he could travel with the team for road games in the regular season. "He's doing his rehab to get himself ready, but he's completely integrated with our football team," head coach Jason Garrett said. "I can't think of a better guy to be in that role. He just embraces every chance he gets to be that much better."

Cleveland Browns QBs Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer may not be the team's answer at quarterback, according to NFL Media's Charley Casserly. Casserly said the Browns' answer at the position is more likely to be found in one of its two first-round picks next season.
FANTASY TIP: Obviously this is subjective speculation. We'll have to see what transpires during the season. Manziel and Hoyer remain unreliable fantasy options at this point, though, Manziel does have more potential.

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) is expected to be out at least another week, although tests on his hamstring came back negative Tuesday, July 29. The Giants are hoping Beckham can be a playmaker at receiver in their new West Coast offense. He'll compete for a starting spot against WR Jerrel Jernigan.
FANTASY TIP: Beckham's injury doesn't look to be too serious, but he'll miss valuable repetitions during training camp as a rookie. Beckham has speed and upside, but there will be plenty of inconsistency in a new offense and with Eli Manning chucking him the pigskin.

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) will undergo tests after suffering a "burner" in practice Tuesday, July 29. The team "will be careful" with Wilson.
FANTASY TIP: The Giants and Tom Coughlin are praying that this burner doesn't equate to a significant setback for Wilson. If it's significant, Wilson's season may be over before it began. Obviously, he's a big risk if you're drafting in the coming days. Rashad Jennings' value will go up even more if Wilson's injury proves costly.

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) injured his hamstring Monday, July 28, which is why he wasn't practicing Tuesday, July 29. Head coach Mike Smith said Jackson will be ready for the team's first game.
FANTASY TIP: This is not what you want to see from an aging running back entering his age-31 season. Jacquizz Rodgers and Devonta Freeman could have heavy workloads if S-Jax continues to be bugged by nagging injuries all year long.

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will miss the team's second practice Tuesday, July 29, as he continues to recover from a herniated disc.
FANTASY TIP: Once Romo is fully recovered, he'll be a QB1 candidate in offensive coordinator Scott Linehan's new offense.
