The Green Bay Packers still have to figure out how to plug the hole they have at tight end, as they move on from the injured Jermichael Finley -- and it appears that they will begin the season sans one of their top pass-catching options at the position.

"Sources said [Brandon Bostick] suffered a slight fracture of the fibula in his right leg catching a pass Saturday in St. Louis," wrote Bob McGinn and Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

"According to sources, the best-case scenario for the Packers would be to have him on the field for the second or third games. One source, however, said the injury could sideline Bostick into October."

The San Francisco 49ers may have the deepest group of wide receivers in the NFL, which could put a veteran or two on the roster bubble, in part due to finances. Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin top the depth chart, while Stevie Johnson and Brandon Lloyd are battling it out for the No. 3 job.

It appears that the Jon Bon Jovi-led group that is interested in buying the Buffalo Bills are all but out of the mix at this point. John Kryk of QMI Agency quoted a source who said, "They're hanging on by the skin of their teeth. The bid's on life support."

Kryk went on to note that, "Jon Bon Jovi and his Toronto backers are reassessing whether even to continue in their pursuit of the Buffalo Bills, QMI Agency has learned.

"Their bid has been on the rocks for weeks and no one within the group is optimistic they'll wind up buying the NFL team, according to two sources in the position to know.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are going to lean on Toby Gerhart as their lead back this season. He touched the pill only 353 times in four seasons as Adrian Peterson's backup with the Minnesota Vikings, but his career 4.7 YPC makes him an intriguing breakout candidate in Fantasyland.

If things break right for Josh Gordon and the Cleveland Browns, his impending year-long suspension will be overturned. In that case, he will line up across from Miles Austin and Andrew Hawkins will work the slot. If Gordon ends up missing much or all of the season, the rest of the Browns WR corps will need to step up.

After holding out all offseason, Andre Johnson reported to training camp in late July and was quickly felled by a hamstring injury. That's quite an inauspicious start to the preseason for a 33-year-old receiver.

He ended up missing a couple of weeks worth of practices, but he was back in the mix a week ago and reportedly has looked terrific.

"Texans receiver Andre Johnson showed no signs of rust from his time away from the team this offseason," wrote CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora.

Not surprisingly, Trent Richardson is slipping in fantasy drafts after a very disappointing first season in Indianapolis. Right now, the former No. 3 overall pick in 2012 is falling to the mid 50s in ESPN leagues. Is that a range where the 23-year-old may be a value, or is it still too high for a player who averaged just 2.9 yards per carry last season and hasn't looked like the same guy since entering the NFL?

Here's the latest out of Indianapolis.

There's a reason Philadelphia only had to give up a conditional seventh-round draft pick to acquire Kenjon Barner from Carolina -- the former Oregon standout had shown very little since being taken in the sixth round in 2013.

That being said, there's also a reason why Barner could flourish on the Eagles -- he'll be reunited with his college coach, Chip Kelly. Will Barner be able to rediscover the success he had under Kelly as a member of the Ducks?

After two quiet seasons, this was supposed to be the year that Stephen Hill figured things out and became the receiver the New York Jets expected him to be when they selected him 43rd overall in 2012. But that already is looking like a longshot.
