Mike Glennon - QB - Bears

The Chicago Tribune's Rich Campbell writes the Bears plan for Mike Glennon to start all season.

Campbell adds there is no quarterback competition and "Glennon's grip on the job" is strong. That said, the Bears are not going to hold down second-overall pick Mitchell Trubisky if the rookie looks ready, and this would not be the first time a team intends to start a veteran all year only to bench him for a young quarterback midway through the season. Despite Chicago's intentions, the safe money is still on Trubisky seeing the field this year.

ESPN's James Walker wrote Dolphins first-round DE Charles Harris "flashed early and often" during the offseason program.

Going by offseason reports, the Dolphins have a chance to be the most dominant team in the history of the NFL. Still, the preponderance of fluff does not necessarily mean the praise of Harris is unwarranted. If he is able to keep it up when the pads come on, Harris could be a big boost for a defense which recorded just 33 sacks in 2016.

Mike Williams - WR - Chargers

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Chargers first-round WR Mike Williams may need season-ending back surgery on a herniated disk.

Williams recently received a second epidural in an effort to try and get him ready for some point during training camp, but the team is preparing as if he won't be ready. There's a chance it won't even help at all, and Williams would then have to get surgery. The No. 7 overall pick in April, Williams has been hurt seemingly ever since being picked. He missed the entire spring and has fallen way behind. Even if he somehow manages to recover at some point, he's highly unlikely to make a year-one impact. The good news for the Chargers is they're well-stocked at receiver with Keenan Allen coming back from a torn ACL, Tyrell Williams coming off a breakout 2016, Dontrelle Inman proving capable as a No. 3, and Travis Benjamin as a deep threat. Williams allegedly may have "masked" the injury in the pre-draft process.

Mike Williams - WR - Chargers

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports first round WR Mike Williams (back) is not expected to need surgery.

The Chargers were considering surgery 3-4 weeks ago, but multiple sources tell RapSheet it's "not on the table" anymore. Williams has reportedly been improving since going down in late May. He's expected to open training camp on the active/PUP list.

Zay Jones - WR - Bills

According to the Bills' official website, second-round WR Zay Jones "looked the part of a top three wideout" in the offseason program.

Per in-house reporter Jake Hamilton, Jones' "air of confidence impressed the coaching staff." Looking like a top-three is great, but the Bills need Jones to be a top-two behind brittle Sammy Watkins. Jones is this year's Sterling Shepard from a projected usage perspective.

I guess they were so focused on his neck and forgot the rest of his spine. His combine numbers being what they were should have made teams suspicious. Hard to think a medical staff would miss that.

Sidney Jones - DB - Eagles

Eagles placed second-round CB Sidney Jones (Achilles') on the active/non-football injury list.

DT Beau Allen (pectoral) was also placed on the active/NFI list. Neither move was a surprise, and both players could open the season on reserve/NFI, which would cost them at least six games. Even so, there is optimism Jones will return at some point this season.
