7/26/2016 Xavien Howard, Mia, CB
Howard will begin training camp on the physically unable to perform list after undergoing a knee scope in June.

Analysis: Howard, a second-round pick in this year's draft, is expected to be ready in time for the regular season. He's considered a potential starter in a re-worked Miami secondary that also added veteran corner Byron Maxwell in the offseason.
7/26/2016 Joey Bosa, SD, DE
Bosa, the third overall pick in the 2016 draft, remains unsigned and the Chargers seem to have no idea when to expect him to arrive at training camp.

Analysis: At issue is the amount of money Bosa receives upfront and language surrounding off-set clauses, which kick in only if Bosa winds up on another roster before his standard four-year rookie deal - with a fifth-year option - expires.
7/26/2016 Devin Hester, Atl, WR
The Falcons released Hester on Tuesday.

Analysis: The four-time Pro Bowl return specialist holds the NFL records with 20 return touchdowns and 14 punt return touchdowns. Hester was limited to five games in 2015 because of toe surgery and entered training camp this week as a question mark because of the injury.

7/25/2016 Jared Cook, GB, TE
Cook begins training camp on the physically unable to perform list when workouts begin Tuesday in Green Bay.

Analysis: Cook signed as a free agent and is expected to compete with Richard Rodgers for reps with the first-team offense. He underwent foot surgery in the offseason and is expected to be ready during the preseason, but the Packers are likely to be cautious.
7/25/2016 Jordy Nelson, GB, WR
Nelson begins training camp on the physically unable to perform list when workouts begin Tuesday in Green Bay.

Analysis: Nelson, recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, missed the entire 2015 regular season and playoffs and said in June he will be 100 percent at the start of the 2016 regular season in September.
7/25/2016 Sen'Derrick Marks, Jax, DT
Marks will be ready when the Jaguars hold their first training camp practice Thursday.

Analysis: Marks was limited to four games last season by a pair of serious injuries, as he missed the first five weeks recovering from an ACL tear and the final seven after tearing his triceps in November. The 29-year-old registered a career-high 8 1/2 sacks while starting all 16 games in 2014.
7/25/2016 Kelvin Beachum, Jax, T
Beachum is expected to be on the field when the Jaguars open camp Thursday.

Analysis: Jacksonville's projected new left tackle, Beachum is recovering from a torn ACL that caused him to miss the final 10 games of last season, while then with Pittsburgh. The Jaguars signed the fifth-year veteran to a five-year, $45 million contract in March.
7/25/2016 Junior Galette, Was, LB
Galette will miss a second straight season because of an Achilles injury. Galette said he tore his right Achilles tendon during football drills Sunday. The news was first reported by

Analysis: A week before the 2015 season, Galette tore his left Achilles and missed the entire campaign. He spent his first five seasons with the New Orleans Saints. In the 2013 and 2014 seasons, Galette recorded a combined 22 sacks and was rewarded with a four-year, $41.5 million deal in 2014. He was released by the Saints last summer over a domestic violence incident that triggered a two-game suspension to begin the 2015 campaign.
7/25/2016 Kyshoen Jarrett, Was, S
Jarrett was waived with a failed physical designation Monday by the Redskins.

Analysis: Jarrett was a sixth-round pick out of Virginia Tech in 2015 and suffered nerve damage to his shoulder in the final game of the season at Dallas. He finished the season as the fifth-leading tackler on the Redskins.
7/25/2016 Carson Wentz, Phi, QB
Asked Monday as rookies reported with quarterbacks for the start of camp, Eagles coach Doug Pederson said a redshirt year awaits the No. 2 overall pick.

Analysis: "We don't know it will be his entire rookie year; we can't speculate that far out," Pederson said. "But going into the season, there is a good chance it starts that way." Wentz allowed Monday that he understand there is "a process" for working his way onto the field. Sam Bradford enters camp as the No. 1 quarterback and Chase Daniel is second on the depth chart.
7/25/2016 Greg Hardy, Dal, DE
Jaguars GM David Caldwell said he has "no imminent plans" to sign Hardy, who had an extensive workout with the team last week.

Analysis: Hardy has drawn very little interest due to his off-field baggage and a so-so 2015 season in Dallas, where he recorded six sacks and an interception in 12 games. The 2013 All-Pro played in just one game in 2014 before the Carolina Panthers placed him on the exempt list while on trial for domestic assault, charges that were ultimately dismissed after his accuser failed to show up in court.
7/25/2016 Anthony Davis, SF, T
Davis announced on his Twitter account that he has formally applied for reinstatement to the NFL.

Analysis: Davis abruptly retired last June after sustaining a head injury during the 2014 season, though he hinted at a comeback during this offseason. The 49ers, who took the 26-year-old with the 11th overall pick of the 2010 NFL, still hold his rights and are thin at right tackle, where Davis started 71 games for the team over five seasons.
7/25/2016 Aldon Smith, Oak, LB
Smith, currently serving a one-year suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, may now be investigated for an online video. A league source told ESPN the NFL will investigate whether Smith has violated the conditions required of a suspended player seeking reinstatement to the league. An online video shows an unidentified man and woman talking about a hand-rolled cigarette. The video is archived in a Periscope account that Smith has used.

Analysis: The woman tells the man in the video that he "shouldn't even be posting that" as the man holds the lit cigarette. The video cuts off immediately after the man says, "They don't know it's me. It's not like I put 'Aldon Smith.'" Smith spent the 2015 season with Oakland after being released by the 49ers. He compiled 28 tackles and 3 1/2 sacks in nine games last season. The pass rusher re-signed with the Raiders in April even though he was serving the yearlong suspension.
7/25/2016 Phil Loadholt, Min, T
Loadholt plans to retire from the NFL at age 30.

Analysis: He was frustrated by a setback in his return from a second season-ending injury in as many years, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. He finished the past two seasons on injured reserve; in 2014 Loadholt played 11 games before a torn pectoral ended his season and last season he was lost in the preseason to a torn Achilles.
7/25/2016 Greg Jennings, Mia, WR
Jennings announced his retirement from the NFL after 10 seasons Monday.

Analysis: The 32-year-old Jennings had just 19 receptions in 16 games last season for 208 yards and one touchdown in his only season with the Dolphins. Jennings spent the first seven seasons (2006-12) of his career with Green Bay, where he caught 53 touchdowns and recorded 6,537 yards receiving. He left the Packers, signed with the Vikings and played two seasons. The two-time Pro Bowler finishes his career with 571 catches for 8,291 yards and 64 touchdowns.
7/24/2016 Brandon Pettigrew, Det, TE
The Lions put Pettigrew on the PUP list Sunday.

Analysis: Pettigrew tore his left ACL late last year and finished the season with only seven catches. He's entering his eighth season with the Lions. Pettigrew caught 83 passes for the Lions in 2011, but the former first-round draft pick has only 17 catches over the past two seasons
