      The Cowboys brought Robinson in for a workout on Thursday, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Robinson, formerly of the Jaguars, has also drawn interest from the Bears this offseason and even attended their veteran minicamp in May. While he obviously left Chicago without a contract, Robinson is still a serviceable backup who could provide depth to the Cowboys' shallow backfield, which could come in handy if the league office decides to suspend Ezekiel Elliott for the beginning of the season in the aftermath of the NFL's year-long investigation into the runner's legal situation.

      The Cowboys brought Hillman in for a workout this week, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Along with Hillman, the Cowboys gave former Jaguars running back Denard Robinson a tryout too as it seems Dallas management is seriously bracing for the possibility of an Ezekiel Elliott suspension. A 2012 third-round pick of the Broncos, Hillman split time last season with the Chargers and Vikings, finishing the year with 131 rushing yards on 41 carries (3.19 YPC).

      Palmer (rest) won't play in the Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 3 against the Cowboys.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Palmer isn't dealing with any sort of injury, it's just that head coach Bruce Arians probably doesn't want to make his veteran quarterback's preseason any longer than it needs to be. The 37-year-old Palmer will be in action Aug. 12 against the Raiders but is unlikely to see more than a drive or two.

      Fitzgerald (rest) will not play in the Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 3 against the Cowboys.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Fitzgerald likely doesn't need the usual four exhibition games to get ready for the regular season anymore -- let alone five -- so this day off is zero concern. Head coach Bruce Arians said the storied receiver will get some reps when the actual preseason starts, which is Aug. 12 in a matchup with the Raiders.

      Durant (undisclosed) was placed on the NFI list on Saturday, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: It isn't clear as to what sort of injury Durant is dealing with. Since he was re-signed just two days ago, it may have been a pre-existing condition. His return date isn't certain.

      Colvin (foot) will open training camp on the physically unable to perform list.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Colvin missed the Jaguars' entire offseason program due to the season-ending foot injury he suffered in Week 15. His status going forward is very clouded and it isn't certain when he'll be back in action.

      Ramsey (abdomen) will open training camp on the physically unable to perform list.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Ramsey underwent surgery to correct a core muscle injury this spring and evidently needs a little more time to recover. This isn't a big deal as he should be back in the fold fairly soon.

      Vikings DE Danielle Hunter will start at defensive end this season.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Veteran Brian Robison was the starter the past few years, but even he couldn't justify himself sticking in the starting lineup after Hunter posted a team-high 12.5 sacks as a 22-year-old, compared to Robison's 7.5, which finished third on the team behind Hunter and Everson Griffen (8). In the big picture, this arrangement is probably the ideal lineup for fantasy owners since Hunter is young but physically ready to take on a larger workload, whereas Robison is firmly on the back nine of his career and should be more effective if he were primarily reserved for passing downs. Barring injury, this is a unit that should be ready to make an encore after finishing with the fifth-most sacks in the league last season, as there weren't aren't significant losses from last year's squad.

      Dolphins LB Koa Misi (neck) is still awaiting clearance to return to the field.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Misi, who was planted on injured reserve just over three weeks into the 2016 campaign, required spinal fusion surgery to recover and was anticipating being cleared by May. However, that time clearly came and went without Misi gaining clearance to return to action. The Dolphins likely would have cut him instead of restructuring his contract this offseason if they weren't optimistic he'll be able to play in 2017, so it seems to simply be a waiting game at this point. If Misi is unable to play in time for the regular season, 2017 second-rounder Raekwon McMillan will likely be in for all the snaps he can handle.

      Chargers CB Jason Verrett (knee-ACL) is questionable to be ready for training camp.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Verrett tore his ACL just four weeks into the 2016 season and his full return would allow the Chargers to boast one of the best cornerback tandems in the league in Verrett and Casey Heyward, the NFL's reigning interception leader (7). In fact, they're one of five teams in the league to have two Pro Bowlers at each corner spot. However, this is all contingent upon Verrett returning in full, so don't be surprised if team management is extremely cautious in bringing their star defender back into the fold.
