Review the latest player news for a specified group of players.
Sammy Watkins Buf - WR
News: Though Watkins suffered a "broken small bone in his foot" and had a screw inserted to address the issue, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the wideout should be ready for training camp. (May 16)
Impact: While Monday's report does not detail when the injury occurred, the initial timetable presented here is encouraging with regard to Watkins' chances of being fully recovered in advance of the coming season. Still, given the often tricky nature of foot issues, the wideout's status is now worth monitoring closely as the the Bills' spring/summer activities approach. (Source: RotoWire / Time: 4:51p ET)

Delanie Walker Ten - TE
News: Walker signed a two-year, $14.7 million contract extension with the Titans on Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. (May 6)
Impact: Walker led the Titans and all NFL tight ends in receptions last season, turning 94 catches into 1,088 receiving yards and six touchdowns, a performance that earned him a trip to the 2015 Pro Bowl. Tennessee appears to be embracing a ground-and-pound philosophy, adding Derrick Henry to a backfield that already included DeMarco Murray, but Walker will likely remain the team's top aerial threat in 2016-17.

Tom Brady NE - QB
News: Brady's four-game suspension -- which stemmed from the quarterback's alleged role in "Deflategate" -- was reinstated Monday by an appeals court ruling, ESPN.com reports. (Apr 25)
Impact: With Monday's ruling, Brady is now in line to miss contests against the Cardinals, Dolphins, Texans and Bills out of the gate. He would thus be eligible to make his regular season debut against the Browns in Week 5. It remains to be seen precisely what recourse the QB has with regard to the decision, but the stage is currently set for Jimmy Garoppolo to serve as the Patriots' starting signal-caller for the first quarter of the 2016 campaign.
