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.

New York Jets QB Geno Smith may be on a shorter leash this year with QB Michael Vick as his backup. Head coach Rex Ryan said the team's quarterback situation is ideal in that there is a veteran backup waiting who knows the system if Smith doesn't succeed.
FANTASY TIP: Smith undoubtedly had a tumultuous rookie season in 2013. He's not a reliable fantasy quarterback by any means at this point in his career. Smith and Vick should both be drafted as a backup.

Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) said his knee felt better Tuesday, July 29, and he could be back sooner than expected. Benjamin suffered a bruised left knee in practice Sunday, July 27.
FANTASY TIP: As long as he's healthy, Benjamin could be the Panthers' No. 1 wide receiver and perhaps their main red-zone threat. Still, he's no more than a WR4 in redraft leagues.
