Description: Lions receiver Golden Tate has been removed from the active/PUP list and is on the practice field.
Insight: Tate was dealing with a sore shoulder in the spring, but was never in real danger of missing training camp time. We project Tate to have 70 receptions, 977 yards and seven touchdowns this year as Detroit\'s No. 2 receiver.
Description: Carolina wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin bumped knees in practice and will have an MRI Monday, according to beat writer Steve Reed.
Insight: No one thinks it\'s too serious, but as thin as the Panthers are at wideout it\'s important they all stay healthy. At 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds, Benjamin should be a red zone favorite of Cam Newton\'s next season.
Description: There will be no Christmas in Phoenix this season, the team waived guard Dionte Christmas Thursday.
Insight: The Suns are loaded in the backcourt with Goran Dragic, Isaiah Thomas, Tyler Ennis, Eric Bledsoe and Gerald Green. Christmass averaged just six minutes per game over 31 contests scoring 2.3 ppg.
Description: Guard Jimmer Fredette has signed a deal with New Orleans.
Insight: Fredette finished last season averaging 5.6 ppg between Sacramento and Chicago. He\'s proven to be useless to fantasy owners because of limited minutes and not being able to fill up a box score.
