Description: Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno (knee) says he\'s ready for game action and hopes to play in Saturday\'s preseason game against Dallas, according to the Miami Herald.
Insight: Moreno underwent a left knee scope in June and returned to practice a couple weeks ago. On Wednesday, he had his most impressive day of practice since returning. Moreno is likely going to end up in a timeshare with Lamar Miller.
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson (hamstring) has shown no signs of rust so far, according to cbssports.com.
Insight: Johnson sat out OTAs and minicamp because he wanted to be traded and he missed the early portion of training camp with a hamstring injury. We have confidence in his ability to build a rapport with new QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and learn Bill O\'Brien\'s offensive scheme quickly. He had 109 catches, 1,407 yards and five touchdowns on 181 targets last season despite having to catch passes from Matt Schaub and Case Keenum.
Description: The latest rumor, courtesy of talk show host Tyler Spence, is for Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo is a trade with Sacramento.
Insight: If true, this would be horrible news for Darren Collison\'s fantasy owners because as it stands he\'s set to be the Kings starting point guard. Of course, after a year of rumors concerning Rondo, we will believe it when someone actually pulls the trigger on the trade.
Description: Nets center Brook Lopez has been cleared for all basketball activities and is expected to be ready for training camp, according to a SiriusXM NBA Radio report.
Insight: Lopez only played 17 games last season before injuries struck, but he was playing at a high level. He averaged 20.7 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 0.9 apg, 1.8 bpg before leg injuries ended his season. He\'s only played 96 of 246 regular season games over the past three seasons making him a high-risk, high-reward fantasy option.
Description: Carolina center Eric Staal suffered a core muscle injury while training and needed to undergo surgery, according to hurricanes.nhl.com.
Insight: GM Ron Francis said Staal should be ready for training camp. The 29-year-old had just 21 goals, 40 assists and 230 SOG over 79 games in 2013-14 after generating 18 goals, 35 assists and 152 SOG in 48 games during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season.
