7/29/2016 Marcell Dareus, Buf, DT
Dareus won't be ready for the start of training camp, getting placed on the active/non-football injury list Friday.

Analysis: Dareus should join the team in the near future, though not for the first practice Saturday. He had only two sacks last season after having a career-high 10 in 2014.
7/29/2016 Kyle Williams, Buf, DT
Williams, coming off knee surgery last season, was placed on the active/physically unable to perform list Friday.

Analysis: Williams was limited to six games last season and had one sack. He recorded 21 sacks for the Bills from 2012-14.
7/29/2016 Andre Johnson, Ind, WR
Johnson has agreed to terms with the Titans.

Analysis: The 35-year-old is hoping to show he still has something left in the tank after having a relatively disappointing 2015 with the Colts after spending his first 12 seasons with the Texans. Johnson had 41 catches for 503 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games last year. He's eighth in NFL history with 1,053 receptions and ninth in receiving yards with 14,100.
7/29/2016 Victor Cruz, NYG, WR
After missing all of last season and being limited to six games over the past two, Cruz was a full-go as the Giants held their first practice at training camp Friday.

Analysis: Cruz participated in every drill, caught passes and worked at recovering fumbles. He didn't show any signs of being limited either by his knee or the calf injury that plagued him last year. The next step will be doing it in practice and then games.
7/29/2016 Tyler Eifert, Cin, TE
Eifert had surgery two months ago to repair a partial ligament tear that he suffered during the Pro Bowl. He was in a cast for six weeks and has to wear a protective boot for at least another week.

Analysis: Eifert, who set a club record for touchdown catches by a tight end (13), could be sidelined or limited for the first few games of the regular season.
7/29/2016 Sammy Watkins, Buf, WR
Watkins will open camp on the Bills' active/non-football injury list.

Analysis: Watkins is coming off foot surgery in April.
7/29/2016 Rey Maualuga, Cin, LB
Maualuga passed his preseason physical on Friday and was cleared to practice.

Analysis: Maualuga was placed on the active/non-football injury list Tuesday. The Bengals did not divulge the nature of the injury for Maualuga, who had dealt with hamstring issues and had to sit out the majority of Cincinnati's offseason work. He ranked third on the team with 75 tackles last season.
7/29/2016 Hakeem Nicks, NYG, WR
Nicks has joined the Saints at training camp and practiced with the team for the first time Friday.

Analysis: The 28-year-old Nicks is taking a spot on the 90-man preseason roster but will likely need to impress in camp to make the regular-season roster. The former first-round pick played only six games last season for the Giants, making seven catches for 54 yards. His production has dipped significantly since posting 1,000-yard seasons in 2010 and 2011.
7/29/2016 Marqise Lee, Jax, WR
The Jaguars held Lee out of practice Friday with a left hamstring injury, the latest setback for a third-year pro who can't seem to stay on the field.

Analysis: Lee has missed significant time with ankle, hamstring and knee injuries since the Jaguars selected him in the second round in 2014. He appeared in 23 games over his first two seasons, making 52 catches for 613 yards with two touchdowns.
7/29/2016 Darren Sproles, Phi, RB
The Eagles signed Sproles to a one-year contract extension Friday. The deal is worth $4.5 million, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, and keeps Sproles with the team through the 2017 season. Sproles skipped all three weeks of voluntary organized team activity practices in May but reported for the team's mandatory minicamp in June.

Analysis: Since arriving in Philadelphia in 2014 via a trade with the Saints, Sproles was named to consecutive Pro Bowls as a return specialist, returning 77 punts for 952 yards with four touchdowns in the past two seasons. Sproles has 646 rushing yards, 775 receiving yards and 14 total touchdowns during his two seasons in Philadelphia.
7/29/2016 Arian Foster, Mia, RB
Foster was played on the active-physically unable to perform list by the Dolphins at the start of training camp Friday.

Analysis: Foster is coming back from Achilles tendon surgery last fall. He signed a $1.5 million, one-year deal this month with Miami, saying he was fully healthy. When Foster returns, he's expected to compete for backup duty behind second-year pro Jay Ajayi.
7/29/2016 Cavellis Luckett, Bal, LB
Luckett was placed on IR with an undisclosed injury.

Analysis: He had fantasy value.
7/29/2016 Jumal Rolle, Bal, CB
Rolle was placed on IR with a torn Achilles.

Analysis: He had no fantasy value.
7/28/2016 Kyle Long, Chi, T
First-round draft pick Leonard Floyd left on a cart because of a stomach illness Thursday and guard Kyle Long came up hobbling near the end of practice.

Analysis: Long slammed his helmet to the ground on the sideline and was later seen with a walking boot on his left leg.
7/28/2016 Julio Jones, Atl, WR
Jones was pulled from Thursday's opening training camp practice, though the undisclosed injury is believed to be minor.

Analysis: Coach Dan Quinn described the injury as a "little tweak" and said he expects Jones to practice Friday. The All-Pro wideout has undergone two surgeries on his right foot in the past three years.
7/28/2016 Robert Griffin III, Cle, QB
Browns coach Hue Jackson plans to have his starting quarterback named before the team's preseason opener.

Analysis: The news bodes well for Griffin, as he received the bulk of the first-team snaps during OTAs and minicamp. The former NFL Rookie of the Year's main competition is from Josh McCown, with rookie Cody Kessler and Austin Davis longer shots in the QB derby.
7/28/2016 Leonard Floyd, Chi, LB
Floyd was carted off the field during Thursday's practice with what coach John Fox described as an illness.

Analysis: It's believed Floyd was removed due to heat-related issues and has avoided a major injury. The rookie linebacker, the ninth overall pick of this year's draft, is ticketed for a significant role on defense.
7/28/2016 Mike Wallace, Bal, WR
Wallace failed his first conditioning test and will not practice with the Ravens until he passes it. Wallace hit five of the six benchmarks in the test of stamina and conditioning, according to the Baltimore Sun, and the Ravens are not overly concerned.

Analysis: Wallace signed a two-year, $11.5 million contract after being released by the Vikings. Because of injuries to No. 1 target Steve Smith and 2015 first-round pick Breshad Perriman, the Ravens were thin at wide receiver last season. Smith and Perriman are starting training camp on the physically unable to perform list.
7/28/2016 Derek Carrier, Was, TE
The Redskins placed Carrier on the physically unable to perform list Thursday.

Analysis: Carrier set career highs with 17 catches and 141 yards while catching his first touchdown pass in 12 games with Washington last season.
7/28/2016 Josh Doctson, Was, WR
The Redskins placed Doctson on the physically unable to perform list Thursday with a strained Achilles.

Analysis: The first-round pick did not participate in organized team activities and minicamp because of the Achilles strain, which took place during spring workouts.
