Earl Wolff supplants Nate Allen as starting safety
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:57 am ET) The Eagles moved safety Earl Wolff to the first team Wednesday, demoting Nate Allen, reports CSNPhilly.com. Wolff hasn't locked up a starting job opposite Michael Jenkins, but he "has undeniably made plays through the first four days of camp," the report said.

Wolff played in 11 games as a rookie, making 45 tackles and an interception.


Calvin Pryor returns to non-contact drills
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:50 am ET) Jets rookie safety Calvin Pryor, who sustained a concussion last Saturday, participated in non-contact drills at practice Thursday. The first-round pick is a projected starter.

If Jordan Reed can stay healthy...
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:44 am ET) Redskins tight end Jordan Reed missed seven games last season, six due to a concussion. He had durability issues in college. But coaches and teammates know that if Reed can stay on the field, he'll do special things, reports ESPN.com.

"He’s always been a natural route runner," offensive coordinator Sean McVay said. "He just gets it. You don’t have to overcoach him. He just naturally separates."

The 6-2, 237-pound Reed is one of the team's top basketball players and has a killer crossover move he's adapted to football, the website said.

"The way he can move his body and be in total control all the time is really special," fellow tight end Logan Paulsen said. "He does a lot of things that receivers can’t do and that will make him so special for a long time. I have never seen anyone run routes the way he runs them. I’m not exaggerating at all when I say that. He’s a special talent. He’s just wired in an explosive athletic way. You see a guy cross somebody up in basketball; he has that move. Even though you know it’s coming he still gets guys to bite. It’s incredible."

Coach Jay Gruden called Reed a fluid athlete who still has a lot to learn.

"He’s effortless the way he runs and very smooth and very difficult to cover and he can stop on a dime and get out of cuts," Gruden said. "He’s very sudden, and he’s got a good feel for the zones. It’s just a matter now of perfecting his craft, both in the passing game when he has to protect and in the running game. So, you know that takes some time. He’s only in his second year and this is a new system, new terminology for him and he’s doing a good job but he has a ways to go before we mention him with the great tight ends in the NFL."


Josh Gordon's appeal set for Friday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:36 am ET) Browns receiver Josh Gordon indeed will have his appeal hearing before the NFL on Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Schefter reported earlier the hearing would be delayed until next week.

Gordon will argue that his one-year suspension is unwarranted, Schefter said.


Jags update Blake Bortles' progress
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:28 am ET) Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said No. 3 overall pick Blake Bortles showed "quality retention of the scheme" coming off the five-week break into training camp, reports the Florida Times-Union.

"One of the things we asked of him was to come in here and not just start from Day One again," Fisch said. "We didn't want Groundhog Day. We didn't want a repeat performance. We didn't want it to be like nothing has changed from the day before. So, how much does he know and recall? What he showed me is he actually dug deeper into the plays."

Fisch said Bortles, who remains the No. 2 quarterback behind Chad Henne, has a good grasp of the system.

"One of the things you worry about is how does a guy handle something he's never done before," Fisch said. "He's had OTAs and minicamp. Now, he's got four weeks to figure out what he's going to do. I thought he really prepared, so he came back ahead of where I thought he was going to be."

The Jaguars are using the 6-5, 230-pound Bortles on rollouts, according to the paper. 

"I love the fact that when Blake moves, he's a strong, tough guy to bring down," Fisch said. "He also throws the ball nicely on the move. It's something clearly he's done throughout his career in college. That's part of our system, so they have to do that."


Stepfan Taylor and Jonathan Dwyer will have distinct roles
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:16 am ET) Although Stepfan Taylor has been running ahead of Jonathan Dwyer in training camp, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said the running backs are not competing for the backup role behind Andre Ellington. Instead, Arians plans to use each back based on his strengths.

"We have all the confidence in the world in Stepfan and Jonathan," Arians said. "Jonathan had a big, long run (Tuesday) and Stef did an unbelievable job in pass protection. It’s an ongoing thing, and we’ll use them both.

"We won’t really have a two and a three. They’ll have roles and go into games with roles so everybody knows exactly what to expect. And when your number’s called to increase your role, you better be ready."


O'Brien says Texans are counting on Arian Foster
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10:12 am ET) Texans head coach Bill O'Brien was very complimentary of running back Arian Foster, who was back at practice for the first time in a couple of days on Wednesday. O'Brien basically said he's counting on Foster a lot this year. 

"(Arian Foster is) a really good football player," O'Brien said according to the Houston Chronicle. "This team is really counting on him. You know, he's a guy that is smart, instinctive and obviously very talented. The Houston Texans need a healthy Arian Foster, so it was good to see him out there."

Foster's 2013 campaign ended early because of a back injury that required a minor procedure. He's expected to be their every-down back in 2014. 


Andre Ellington now expected back Friday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:10 am ET) Cardinals running back Andre Ellington missed the past two practices with what the team calls a minor neck injury. He is expected back Friday after Thursday's off day, according to the team's website.

Ellington initially was expected to return Wednesday, but the team held him out.


Devonta Freeman impressing at Falcons camp
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10:01 am ET) Falcons rookie running back Devonta Freeman seems to be taking advantage of the reps he's been getting thus far in training camp, more than what he expected given the hamstring injury to Steven Jackson. Freeman has shown flashes that prove he can be an every-down back, according to ESPN. 

"He's a good back, young back, fresh legs," Falcons running backs coach Gerald Brown said about Freeman. "He has good agility. I think he's going to be a really good receiver for us. And I think at the end of the day, he's going to be a good football player for us." 

Freeman was the second-leading rusher for FSU in 2013, rolling for 1,016 yards on 173 carries (5.9 yards per carry) and 14 touchdowns on the ground. 


Report: David Wilson's career in doubt
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9:49 am ET) David Wilson "needs a miracle" to continue his career with the Giants, the Newark Star-Ledger reported Thursday. Wilson suffered a neck "burner," (trauma to his neck that involves numbness and tingling) in practice this week and will be re-evaluated next week, but an anonymous source told the paper the bad prognosis. 

The running back posted on Instagram Thursday that "everything turned out to be fine." 

Wilson underwent spinal fusion surgery on his neck this offseason in an attempt to continue his career.
