      Criner (hamstring) was unable to practice Wednesday, Scott Bair of CSNCalifornia.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The hamstring concern has prevented Criner from practicing at all this week, but he's at least not losing ground to Greg Little, who is nursing a hamstring injury of his own. Regardless, Criner is on the roster bubble this season and will need to fend off the likes of Little, Andre Holmes, and Brice Butler over the remainder of camp.

      Little (hamstring) was unable to practice Wednesday, Scott Bair of CSNCalifornia.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: A hamstring tweak, suffered during Monday's practice, kept Little on the sideline again Wednesday and it's uncertain when he may be cleared to return to the field. There's still time plenty of time for Little to make his case for a roster spot, but each day missed is hurting his chances of breaking camp with the Raiders.

      Reece reported to camp at 238 pounds, down from 250 pounds last season, and he may be more involved in the Raiders' passing attack, ESPN.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The versatile Reece was supposed to take on a more prominent role in 2013, but he ended up seeing 33 fewer touches than he did in 2012, as he once again served primarily as a blocking fullback. While his opportunities as a ballcarrier figure to remain limited in 2014, with Maurice Jones-Drew now in Oakland and Latavius Murray healthy, it sounds like the slimmed-down Reece may act as quarterback Matt Schaub's security blanket on passing downs. For his career, Reece has hauled in 138-of-210 targets for 1,481 yards and eight touchdowns.

      Wallace (hamstring) missed practice Wednesday, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Wallace first injured the hamstring Tuesday and should be good to go in another day or two as the injury is not expected to be serious. The key to the Dolphins offense this season could be the chemistry or lack there of between Wallace and QB Ryan Tannehill.

      Rubin has impressed new head coach Mike Pettine with his run-stopping ability during the first few days of camp, ESPN Cleveland reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Rubin is entering his seventh NFL season with the Browns, and despite being a bit banged up during team OTAs, he's back in pads and making an impression for his run defense. The 28-year-old has two seasons (2010-11) of 80-plus combined tackles under his belt, and could be a reasonable IDP option in deeper formats under Pettine's 3-4 defensive scheme in the coming year.

      Leonhard signed with the Browns on Wednesday, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Leonhard will enter his 10th NFL season, all of which have been on a team where new Browns coach Mike Pettine has been part of the staff. In what he previously stated would be his final season in the league, Leonhard will serve as a reserve defensive back, and likely see the majority of his reps on special teams.

      Kasa (hip) was activated from the PUP list and returned to practice Wednesday, Scott Bair of CSNCalifornia.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Now that he's off the PUP list, Kasa will join David Ausberry and Mychal Rivera in the competition for playing time at tight end. The hip injury may continue to limit him in practice, however, and Kasa caught just one pass last season, so he remains the underdog to emerge from the bunch. That said, there are some who feel Kasa may be the most well-rounded option at the position for the Raiders.

      Streater (concussion) returned to practice Wednesday, Scott Bair of CSNCalifornia.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Streater was seen wearing shorts instead of padded pants when the team took the field, leading to some confusion as to whether he'd practice, but he was active when drills commenced. The 26-year-old suffered a concussion in the Raiders' first padded practice of training camp Sunday, but his participation Wednesday means he has been cleared for full contact.

      The Houston Texans' running back returned Wednesday from what was believed to be a hamstring tweak, per the Houston Chronicle.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Foster is currently a late first round pick but if his nagging injuries continue through camp, he could slide into the second round. Coming off back surgery last year, nothing is certain with the Texans' star running back. The team is relying on him this season and as long as he avoids any major setbacks, he should be able to fill the stat sheets as he's done in previous seasons. Foster is said to possibly see more work in the passing game in a new-look Houston offense.

      Asked what we'll see from Jay Cutler, the Pro Bowl wideout Brandon Marshall told NFL Media's Michael Irvin on Wednesday that Chicago's starting quarterback will be named this year's league MVP. "He's correcting the coaches. This is his offense. This is his organization, he's running it, and I love it."

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Add this one to the list of ridiculous pre-season hyperbole. Cutler is definitely in line for a great fantasy campaign (assuming he can stay healthy for an entire 16 games) but he's simply not on the same level as the top tier signal-callers like Peyton Manning, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers. That said, Cutler could make for an incredible late-round bargain pick in fantasy drafts.
