The +Baltimore Ravens​ spent the offseason talking about their hopes for better play from safety #Matt_Elam this season, but those hopes may have been dashed early in training camp.

Elam suffered an injury to his arm on Saturday and the Baltimore Sun reports that the team fears he tore his biceps. Elam will have an MRI on Sunday to determine the severity of the injury.

If Elam completely tore his biceps, there’s a good chance that he’ll miss the entire season. A partial tear would require a much shorter recovery period that could put Elam back on the field sometime in September.

#Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome said in May that the Ravens haven’t been satisfied with the 2013 first-round pick’s play during his first two seasons with the team. Defensive coordinator Dean Pees praised Elam later in the offseason, but that may be moot if the MRI reveals a serious injury.

#Broncos #Von_Miller no longer has to pee in a cup twice (or more) a week after the NFL removed him from its drug program.

Mike Klis of 9News in Denver reported the news.

A clean Von Miller dismissed from NFL's drug program http://t.co/Konpi1531I #9News

— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) August 2, 2015

Klis notes that Miller hasn’t been tested in over a month now after proving clean on every test for the past two years. As a result, his status, once at Stage 3 (meaning a positive test would earn a one-year ban), is now set back at zero.

Miller’s agent, Joby Branion, is ecstatic about this development.

“I’m very proud of how much he has grown over the past couple of years,” Branion said. “He’s done a heckuva job and overcome some major obstacles that few players are able to do. And for a high-profile guy, it’s especially difficult. For him to not only grow, but to proactively take on leadership roles, I’m proud of him. He turned the ship around. He should be lauded for that.”

Never mind that this news clears the way for Branion’s client to make millions upon millions in a contract extension with the +Denver Broncos​.

Oh, wait, did I say that out loud?

In all seriousness, yes, while Miller’s clean slate opens the door for more financial prosperity, it also means the young man is in a better place personally, which is far more important.

With a clear mind, Miller should have another successful campaign for the Broncos this season. He racked up 14 sacks in 2014 and 18.5 in 2012, proving to be one of the league’s most dynamic pass-rushers. With another monster season, he’s going to push the Broncos to one-up the massive $102 million contract Justin Houston signed with the Kansas City Chiefs this past month.

Perhaps that’s why Lindsay Jones saw such a happy guy at Broncos camp on Saturday.

I told this to Von Miller earlier today, but in eight years, I have never seen a player happier to be going through camp than Miller is now.

UPDATE +Denver Broncos​ receiver #Kyle_Williams suffered a season-ending injury at today’s training camp practice.

Williams has confirmed that he tore his Achilles and won’t play in 2015.

“Unfortunately, today I suffered an injury to my Achilles and will consequently be missing this season,” Williams wrote on Instagram. “It’s hard for me at this point to make sense of all of this but at the end of the day I understand and trust God’s plan for me. My determination to get back and my work ethic will not diminish and I will eventually get back to full strength. I appreciate all those who have reached out and all of those who are praying. You all mean more to me than u know. Thank you.”

Williams’s long injury history makes it questionable whether he’ll be able to make it back to the NFL. His 2013 season ended with a torn ACL, and in 2014 he didn’t play beyond the preseason after suffering a shoulder injury.

#Jacqueline_Davidson, who has spent nine years working in the #NFL, has been promoted by the +New York Jets​ to the position of director of football administration.

Davidson will replace Rod Graves, who recently left the #Jets’ front office to take a position in the league office.

During her tenure with the Jets, Davidson has been the team’s top negotiator on player contracts, and she received credit this offseason when the Jets landed one of the biggest prizes in free agency, Darrelle Reivs. Davidson’s responsibilities also include managing the salary cap and ensuring that the team complies with the Collective Bargaining Agreement and league personnel rules.

“Jackie has served as an integral part of our football administration efforts under Rod Graves this offseason,” Jets General Manager Mike Maccagnan said. “She’s bright and talented and she has earned this opportunity.”

The appointment makes Davidson one of the highest-ranking women to work in an NFL front office. Along with the hiring of Jen Welter as a Cardinals assistant, Beth Mowins as the Raiders’ play-by-play voice and Sarah Thomas as an official, this news points to positive progress in the NFL.

It’s unclear whether tight end #Orson_Charles will make the opening-day roster with the +New Orleans Saints​. If he does, he won’t be playing in Week One.

Via the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the #NFL has suspended Charles one game for violating the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy.

The suspension arises from a March 2014 incident, in which Charles pointed a gun (three times, allegedly) at another driver who had made an obscene gesture. Charles was under contract with the Bengals at the time; they cut him in August, and Charles then joined the New Orleans #Saints practice squad.

He received probation after pleading guilty in February to wanton endangerment.

Because the incident happened before the NFL revised the Personal Conduct Policy, the punishment possibly was less than it would have been if the incident had occurred after the policy changed.

Ian Kennedy watches birth of daughter on FaceTime before start

For +San Diego Padres​ pitcher #Ian_Kennedy, the struggle was indeed real. Kennedy was trying desperately to get back home Friday for the birth of his fourth child. Unfortunately, the #Padres were playing in Miami against the Marlins, and inclement weather kept him from being able to fly out for the birth.

So, in the age of technology, what else did he do but fire up his iPad and watch the whole thing from the visitor’s clubhouse:

“I was texting back and forth with [wife Allison]. She said, ‘You might as well get this game in and then come home,'” Kennedy said.

So Kennedy called pitching coach Darren Balsley. The team had already announced a replacement starter — Odrisamer Despaigne — but Kennedy asked if he could keep on schedule.

“It made more sense to stay and pitch,” he said.

But before he did, through the magic of FaceTime, Kennedy got to see daughter Evelyn Nicole born at 2:03 p.m. PT. Kennedy watched for 20 minutes, and saw the cutting of the umbilical cord — which had been his job, he said — before realizing he needed to do something.

And he showed up in the start, giving up an early two-run homer before settling down and going seven innings in the Padres’ extra inning win. Mother and baby are doing well, and Kennedy was able to return home to be with them before rejoining the team for his next start.

UPDATE With the inevitable launch of training camps comes the inevitable parade of injuries. For the +New York Jets​, it turns out that the broken ribs suffered by rookie receiver #Devin_Smith also include damage to an internal organ.

Via Dom Cosentino of NJ.com, Smith suffered a “slightly” punctured lung as part of the injury that occurred after making a leaping catch at training camp.

His status for the regular-season opener against the Browns remains unknown. He’s expected to at least miss the rest of camp.

+Denver Broncos​ receiver #Kyle_Williams’s bad luck with injuries has continued.

Williams was carted off the practice field at training camp in Denver today after suffering an apparent right knee injury while returning a punt.

In 2013, Williams suffered a torn ACL in his first game with the Chiefs. In 2014, Williams suffered a shoulder injury in the Chiefs’ final preseason game and didn’t make the regular-season roster.

Williams was once viewed as a promising young receiver and special teams player for the 49ers, but his inability to stay healthy may cut his career short.

Some judges don’t get directly involved in trying to settle a case. Some do.

And some of the judges who get directly involved in the efforts to settle a case make it very clear to the parties that the judge is determined to settle the case. When that happens, the case usually settles.

In 18 years of practicing law, I never saw an order like the one Judge Richard M. Berman issued to the NFL and the NFLPA on Friday. Below, I’ll explain how I would interpret it, if I was representing either the NFL or the NFLPA in this case.

Posted on Twitter by Raffi Melkonian, a Texas lawyer who has been posting various court filings to date in the case, the full order reads as follows:

“Thank you for your letter, dated July 31, 2015. I found it helpful. It is ‘OK’ to file a public version of the answer and counterclaim as you request. I always have considerable difficulty approving any sealed documents, given the keen public interest in these matters and the public’s right to know. It’s up to you whether to file any sealed motions or sealed document applications at this time.

“I have two further suggestions. First, because I already have a good understanding of your positions from your submissions to date, you need only each file a 15 page double spaced memo (further supporting your positions) by August 7, 2015. In the nature of a reply brief, perhaps.

“Second, I am scheduling a status/settlement conference for Wednesday, August 12, 2015 at 11:00 a.m., with your principals (including, without limitation, Mr. Goodell and Mr. Brady). Let’s see what we can accomplish at that conference and if there is a need for more written submissions, the August 14, 2015 submission date you propose is fine.

“I am also scheduling a status/settlement/oral argument conference for Wednesday, August 19, 2015 at 10:00 a.m., again with your principals (including, without limitation, Mr. Goodell and Mr. Brady). Please jointly confirm all dates by 3:00 p.m. on Monday, August 3, 2015. . . .

“Lastly, I request that you all engage in comprehensive, good-faith settlement discussions prior to the conference on August 12, 2015. Magistrate Judge James C. Francis, IV is available to assist you if you wish.”

First, it’s clear that the judge has been studying the case and knows the issues. He probably already has an idea regarding how he would rule on the case; there’s really not much either side can do to change his mind in only 15, double-spaced pages.

Second, he’s determined to get the case settled. By directing the two sides to engage in “comprehensive, good-faith settlement discussions” before the first of not one but two settlement conferences with Judge Berman presiding, he expects the parties to arrive at the first conference with their latest settlement positions clearly established (e.g., NFL at a two-game suspension and an acknowledgement of guilt and Brady at a two-game fine and no acknowledgement of guilt). At that point, Judge Berman will then have two opportunities to pressure the side that needs to be pressured the most (and it possibly will be both sides that need pressure) to resolve the case before he issues a ruling.

Third, the invitation to utilize the services of Magistrate Judge James C. Francis IV to assist in any settlement talks before August 12 isn’t an invitation. If they don’t take Judge Berman up on the offer, he won’t be happy — unless they can settle the case without using Judge Francis as the facilitator/mediator of settlement discussions over the next 11 days.

Fourth, and as surmised on Friday, Judge Berman expects Goodell and Brady to appear in court for both conferences on August 12 and 19. Whoever resists showing up on either of those days does so at his own peril.

For Brady, it will mean missing two days of work. Although the team’s training-camp schedule hasn’t been announced beyond August 3, August 12 comes one day before the preseason opener against the Packers, at Gillette Stadium. On August 19, the Patriots will be in the middle of a three-day visit to West Virginia, for joint practices with the Saints.

For Goodell, it will mean shuffling whatever schedule he already has in place for those days. The NFL’s lawyers will likely tell him that nothing is more important than showing up for the conferences with Judge Berman.

Fifth, it’s clear that Judge Berman won’t be inclined to keep any documents under seal, based on this sentence: “I always have considerable difficulty approving any sealed documents, given the keen public interest in these matters and the public’s right to know.” In other words, the full transcript of the Tom Brady appeal hearing eventually will be released, if the case isn’t settled.

That’s a win for the NFLPA and Brady. Although the NFL would say that the parties agreed to seal the transcript, a source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the NFLPA agreed to seal the transcript at the insistence of the NFL.

The best way to keep the transcript from ever being released to the public (barring a leak) would be to settle the case before the judge has to decide whether to approve the filing of the transcript under seal. And Judge Berman knows that. And now the NFL and NFLPA know that he knows that.

I’m tempted to think the case could settle this week, without Goodell and Brady having to appear before Judge Berman. But if the two sides are at an impasse over whether a settlement would include a suspension of any duration, it won’t be easy to break that log jam without getting an idea of how Judge Berman feels about what amounts to an all-or-nothing proposition decision in court.

Eventually, Judge Berman may have to privately inform the side against which he’s inclined to rule that it will either accept the best deal it can get, or it will get nothing and like it.
Some judges don’t get directly involved in trying to settle a case. Some do. And some of the judges who get directly involved in the efforts to settle a case make it very clear to the parties that the judge is determined to settle the case. When that happens, the case usually settles. In 18 years of…
