Analysis: An MRI is planned but coach Bruce Arians said the injury is not considered serious.
7/30/2016 Mike Jenkins, Ari, CB
Jenkins, who signed with the Cardinals on July 19, left Friday's first training camp workout with a broken bone in his hand.

Analysis: Coach Bruce Arians said there's no prognosis on how Jenkins will be out.
7/30/2016 Robert Nkemdiche, Ari, DT
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians says he expects Nkemdeche to be sidelined for two weeks with a high ankle sprain.

Analysis: The big defensive Arizona tackle was injured in the first day of rookie camp on Tuesday, but Saturday was the first time Arians has given a timeline for the rookie's return.
7/30/2016 Adrian Peterson, Min, RB
The Minnesota Vikings have taken a cautious start to the season with Peterson because of a hamstring pull he suffered prior to training camp while working out.

Analysis: Peterson has been held out of full-team drills, doing some conditioning work on the side with head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman. "He can do things. He just can't turn it all the way. So we're just being careful," coach Mike Zimmer said.
7/30/2016 Eric Fisher, KC, T
Fisher has agreed to a four-year, $48 million extension with the Chiefs that includes $40 million guaranteed.

Analysis: Fisher has started 43 of 46 games for Kansas City since being drafted No. 1 overall in 2013.
7/30/2016 Willie Young, Chi, LB
The Bears signed Young to a two-year contract extension Saturday.

Analysis: The 30-year-old Young had a career-high 10 sacks in 2014, his first season with the Bears, before tearing his Achilles tendon. He came back last season to play 15 games, totaling 6 1/2 sacks along with his first career interception.
7/30/2016 Joey Bosa, SD, DE
Bosa is the only member of the Chargers who didn't show up for the start of training camp.

Analysis: The first-round pick remains unsigned due to a dispute over how his signing bonus will be disbursed. "He needs to be here, especially as a younger player, with installations and playing with your teammates and things like that," coach Mike McCoy said.
7/30/2016 Cordarrelle Patterson, Min, WR
The Vikings are keeping Patterson out of practice following an injury around his left shoulder.

Analysis: Patterson was on the field Saturday as a spectator. He fell hard on his shoulder Friday while trying to make a catch. He was in immediate discomfort but appeared to be in good spirits later.
7/30/2016 DeAndre Hopkins, Hou, WR
Hopkins did not report to Texans training camp Saturday and is holding out for a new contract.

Analysis: Hopkins is scheduled to make $1 million in base salary this year, the last of his rookie contract, but Houston has picked up his fifth-year option. He's clearly underpaid for a player who was among the league leaders in all receiving categories last season, but he's being fined $40,000 for each day he misses camp and could show up soon.
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, NO, 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.
