8/4/2015 Clay Matthews, GB, LB
Matthews has missed a second straight day of practice after coach Mike McCarthy said he was holding out the Green Bay Packers' star linebacker as a precaution because of knee soreness.

Analysis: Matthews watched in a white cap on the sideline while teammates went through practice Tuesday morning. Matthews has been to five Pro Bowls. He insisted Monday that he would be fine.
8/4/2015 Justin Blackmon, Jax, WR
The Jacksonville Jaguars are losing hope that Blackmon will return.

Analysis: General manager Dave Caldwell said Tuesday he's had no contact with Blackmon in some time. He adds that he expects Blackmon's skills to be diminished after nearly two years away from football.
8/4/2015 C.J. Mosley, Bal, LB
Mosley says his surgically repaired wrist feels 100 percent.

Analysis: Mosley started every game and made the Pro Bowl as a rookie last year. He had 129 tackles, three sacks, two interceptions and a forced fumble, numbers that look even better considering he played the final six games with the broken wrist. He underwent surgery in the offseason and was cleared for training camp.
8/3/2015 Travis Long, Phi, LB
Long has torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee for the second straight year.

Analysis: Long was injured in practice Monday on the second day of training camp. The second-year pro missed last season after injuring his ACL in the final preseason game. Long also tore his right ACL during his senior year at Washington State in 2012.
8/3/2015 Britton Colquitt, Den, P
Two years after becoming the league's highest-paid punter, Britton Colquitt has increased his chances of making the Denver Broncos' roster by agreeing to a $1.4 million pay cut. Colquitt now will make $1.6 million this season after Monday's agreement. His 2016 salary of $3.25 million remains untouched.

Analysis: Colquitt signed a three-year, $11.7 million extension in 2013, but his production slipped last year. In the offseason, the Broncos brought in kicker/punter Karl Schmitz, a strong-legged 28-year-old from Jacksonville University who hasn't played since 2008.
8/3/2015 Star Lotulelei, Car, DT
Panthers starting defensive tackle Star Lotulelei was carted to the locker room with his right foot taped in ice. It's the same foot that Lotulelei fractured in January, preventing him from playing in the team's NFC divisional playoff game against Seattle.

Analysis: Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Monday after practice the 2013 first-round draft pick has been experiencing soreness in the ankle and was taken to the locker room as a precautionary measure.
8/2/2015 Dez Bryant, Dal, WR
Bryant and Dallas cornerback Tyler Patmon had to be separated in a heated exchange that lasted several minutes before quarterback Tony Romo finally stepped in and calmed his star receiver late in Sunday's practice at training camp. Bryant, who has a history of sideline antics that include screaming at coaches and teammates, went after Patmon several times after it appeared the incident during 11-on-11 drills was over.

Analysis: When practice ended a few minutes later, coach Jason Garrett spoke briefly to Bryant, who then walked over to Patmon and hugged him while fans nearby cheered after earlier yelling at Bryant to calm down. Bryant, who recently signed a five-year, $70 million contract, said he "got a little overheated."
8/2/2015 Matt Elam, Bal, S
Ravens coach John Harbaugh is concerned about the severity of the biceps injury to safety Matt Elam.

Analysis: Elam, a third-year safety, injured the biceps during practice on Saturday reaching for a receiver who had run by him. He had an MRI Sunday. If the biceps are torn, this could possibly be a season-ending injury. "I haven't heard a final word, but it wasn't very optimistic yesterday talking to the doctors (about) his biceps," Harbaugh said. "I'm not real optimistic right now."
8/2/2015 Michael Johnson, Cin, DE
Johnson hurt his right knee during practice in Cincinnati on Sunday and was taken off the field on a cart. Doctors initially thought the injury wasn't serious, and the Bengals defensive end was sent for tests. The injury happened during the team's second practice of training camp.

Analysis: Johnson returned to the Bengals after spending one season with the Buccaneers. The Bengals are hoping he revives a line that didn't get much pressure on the quarterback last season. Cincinnati finished last in the league in sacks.
8/2/2015 Muhammad Wilkerson, NYJ, DE
Wilkerson left practice Sunday with a tweaked hamstring, an injury coach Todd Bowles didn't believe is serious.

Analysis: Wilkerson, a key playmaker in Bowles' defense, walked off the field at training camp about halfway through practice and headed straight to the locker room. He didn't appear to be walking gingerly or with a limp.
8/2/2015 Sam Bradford, Phi, QB
Bradford was full-go on the first day of training camp.

Analysis: Bradford took snaps, fired passes and participated in all the quarterback drills with the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. He didn't even wear a clunky knee brace on his twice-surgically repaired left knee.
8/2/2015 Mohammed Seisay, Sea, CB
The Seattle Seahawks have added depth to their secondary by acquiring Seisay from Detroit for an undisclosed 2016 draft pick.

Analysis: Seisay appeared in 13 games last season for Detroit as a rookie, and played in the Lions' playoff loss to Dallas. Seisay was signed by the Lions as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Nebraska.
8/2/2015 Donald Thomas, Ind, G
The Indianapolis Colts have put 2013 NFL sacks leader Robert Mathis and Thomas on the physically unable to perform list.

Analysis: Thomas missed all of last season after tearing his right quadriceps during training camp - the same injury that kept him out of all but two games in 2013.
8/2/2015 Tony McDaniel, Sea, DT
The Seattle Seahawks have released veteran defensive tackle Tony McDaniel to save salary cap space after signing quarterback Russell Wilson and linebacker Bobby Wagner to contract extensions.

Analysis: Seattle made the move with McDaniel on Sunday and it will save the club between $2.5 and $3 million against the salary cap. McDaniel was set to make $2.5 million in base salary.
8/2/2015 Bobby Wagner, Sea, LB
The Seattle Seahawks and Bobby Wagner have finalized a four-year contract extension that keeps the All-Pro middle linebacker with the club after this season. Team owner Paul Allen confirmed Wagner's extension in a tweet late Saturday night. NFL.com first reported the deal and that it's worth $43 million which would make Wagner the highest-paid middle linebacker in football.

Analysis: Wagner was an All-Pro last season and finished second on the team with 104 tackles after missing five games with a painful toe injury. Wagner has been Seattle's starting middle linebacker since being selected in the second round of the 2012 draft.
8/1/2015 Willie Colon, NYJ, G
The New York Jets activated guard Willie Colon from the active/physically unable to perform list, and he participated in the team's first padded practice Saturday.

Analysis: Colon was placed on the active/PUP list Wednesday when players reported for camp because of pain in his left knee. Both Colon and coach Todd Bowles were optimistic Friday that he would be activated soon, with the guard saying that he felt good and it would be "time to roll" when he was activated.
8/1/2015 Kyle Williams, Den, WR
Williams tore his left Achilles during a punt return drill at training camp Saturday and will miss the season.

Analysis: The oft-injured Williams missed much of the Broncos' offseason workouts with sore hamstrings. He was out of the league last year after playing in all four of Kansas City's preseason games.
8/1/2015 Sheldon Richardson, NYJ, DT
New York Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan was supportive of Sheldon Richardson, but noncommittal on the defensive lineman's long-term future with the team.

Analysis: Maccagnan addressed reporters Saturday for the first time since Richardson was suspended four games by the NFL for marijuana use in early July and his arrest less than two weeks later in Missouri after high-speed road racing.
8/1/2015 Stephen Hill, Car, WR
Hill was carted off the field Saturday with a right leg injury. Hill attempted to make a catch across the middle during an afternoon practice in intense heat, but came down wrong on his leg and fell to the ground screaming in pain.

Analysis: Trainers taped Hill's knee before helping him on to a cart. Hill left the field with his head in his hands and a towel draped over his head.
8/1/2015 Devin Smith, NYJ, WR
Smith will miss the majority of training camp after fracturing his ribs Friday.

Analysis: Smith was hospitalized overnight as a precaution after getting hurt while making an impressive catch. Smith, a second-round draft pick out of Ohio State, caught a long pass from Geno Smith that deflected off the hands of cornerback Marcus Williams. While Smith was coming down, he was hit from behind by safety Jaiquawn Jarrett - and it appeared Smith's head and neck area took the brunt of it.
