Golden Tate (shoulder) still not ready to practice

M Live - [Full Article]

Wide receivers Golden Tate and TJ Jones will all open camp on the physically unable to perform list.

Tate, Detroit's prized offseason acquisition, didn't participate in the team's mandatory minicamp in June. At the time, he proclaimed he fully expected to be healthy for training camp.

"100 percent (I'll be ready)," Tate said. "100 percent. No doubt about it. We'll see the doctors today and talk about whatever we need to talk about. Go from there. I want to be out there, though."

The Lions awarded Tate a five-year, $31 million deal in free agency. Durability has not been an issue in recent years. He's missed just one game the past three seasons.

Fantasy Impact: 

The shoulder injury is a bit worrisome, but we're still expecting Tate to have a strong season as the Lions' WR2.
