  • Ashton Dulin WR | IND

    Colts' Ashton Dulin: Could start camp limited

    General manager Chris Ballard told reporters Wednesday that Dulin (knee) may work in a limited fashion to begin training camp, JJ Stankevitz of the team's official website reports.

    Dulin is still recovering from a torn ACL suffered before the Colts' 2023 campaign, so this news comes as no surprise. Once the 27-year-old wideout returns to form, he's expected to compete with Alec Pierce and Anthony Gould for a depth spot in Indianapolis' wide receiver room.

  • Mekhi Blackmon DB | MIN

    Vikings' Mekhi Blackmon: Sustains knee injury

    Blackmon left during training camp Thursday with a knee injury, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

    Blackmon limped off the field during 7-on-7 drills and was attended by medical officials before leaving for the locker room, per Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com. It could be a significant blow for Blackmon, who missed the last two regular-season games last year due to a shoulder injury. The 2023 third-round pick out of USC finished his rookie season with 41 tackles (34 solo), eight passes defended and one interception across 15 regular-season contests, and he was set to see a larger role in the secondary this year alongside Byron Murphy (knee) and Shaquill Griffin. Akayleb Evans saw additional work with the first-team difference after Blackmon went down, per Will Ragatz of SI.com, and the former could see increased snaps if the latter is sidelined for an extended period of time.

  • Lions' Marcus Davenport: Moves off PUP list

    The Lions removed Davenport (ankle) from their active/PUP list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    After passing a physical Wednesday, it seems as if Davenport is finally starting to get past the ankle injury that limited him to just four games last season. The veteran linebacker inked a one-year deal with Detroit earlier in the offseason, and he's expected to serve as one of the team's top edge rushers in 2024.

    Dodson landed on the active/PUP list Thursday with an undisclosed injury, but he appears to be the over the issue and will begin practicing at Seattle's training camp. After spending the first four years of his career with the Bills, Dodson signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks, where he will compete for a starting role in the linebackers corps with the departure of Bobby Wagner and Jordyn Brooks. Dodson saw extended playing time last season after Matt Milano fractured his leg in Week 5 of 2023, with the former finishing the year with a career-high 74 tackles (57 solo), including 2.5 sacks, two passes defended, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery across 17 regular-season games.

The 27-year-old linebacker appears to have recovered from the procedure and is ready to participate in training camp, where he will compete for an every-down role at linebacker. The 2018 third-round pick out of Ohio State signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks in March after spending the first six years of his career with the Dolphins. He finished 2023 with 78 tackles (51 solo), including 1.5 sacks, three passes defended, two interceptions and one touchdown across 13 regular-season games.
