Player News
Jimmy Clausen might have leg up on Jordan Palmer
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:21 am ET) Jimmy Clausen might have gotten the jump on incumbent Jordan Palmer in the battle for the backup Bears quarterback job behind Jay Cutler. The former is working with the second-team Saturday in practice, per ESPN.

Injuries have prevented Clausen from throwing an NFL pass since 2010 with Carolina. It remains to be seen if he can hang on to the backup spot with Chicago.


Report: Jordy Nelson comes to four-year agreement
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:14 am ET) Packers prolific wide receiver Jordy Nelson has signed a four-year contract for $39 million with $14.2 million guaranteed, per NFL Network. Nelson had asked for $10 million a year.

The 29-year-old veteran managed arguably his finest season in 2013 with 85 catches for 1,314 yards and eight touchdowns.


Report: Cecil Shorts a no-go for Saturday practice
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:07 am ET) Hamstring tightness that forced Jaguars top receiver Cecil Shorts out of practice Friday has apparently prevented him from participating Saturday. He is not on the field, according to the team website, though the injury is not considered serious.

The team can certainly use a healthy Shorts this season. Though his production weakened as the year progressed, he did finish with 66 receptions for 777 yards.


Geno Hayes off Saturday, ready to work every other day
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:01 am ET) Jaguars outside linebacker Geno Hayes, who underwent offseason knee surgery, was off from practice Saturday. He will work only every other day in camp, per The Associated Press, as the team does not want to push him.

Hayes racked up 58 tackles, 19 assists, one sack and two interceptions a year ago in his first season with Jacksonville.


Report: Billy Winn tears hamstring
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:53 am ET) Browns defensive lineman Billy Winn has been placed on the non-football injury list. He has torn a hamstring, sources have indicated to ESPNCleveland.com.

Winn played in 11 games last season, recording 21 tackles and two sacks.


Fred Jackson's injury deemed minor
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8:32 am ET) Fred Jackson left Bills practice on Friday with a lower leg injury but the Buffalo News reported that it's considered minor and he didn't finish working as a as a precaution. Jackson has a leg bruise and is day to day, NFL Network added. 

Fred Jackson exits practice with lower leg injury
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) Bills running back Fred Jackson was escorted to the locker room with team trainers after sustaining a lower leg injury during Friday's training camp practice, WGR50 in Buffalo reports. Jackson totaled 1,283 yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns last season while playing 663 snaps last season. The Bills will open preseason Aug. 3 against the Giants.

Report: Vick Ballard suffers torn Achilles in training camp
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) Colts running back Vick Ballard has been diagnosed with a torn Achilles, ESPN.com reports Friday.

Ballard went down with the injury at training camp Friday, and had to be carted off the field. He likely will not see the field again this season, as this has the potential to be a season-ending injury.

Ballard suffered a season-ending ACL injury last season, after appearing in just one game. 


David Wilson takes a hit, feels good
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Giants running back David Wilson "definitely" feels ready for football after taking a hit from linebacker Cooper Taylor in training camp practice on Friday. Wilson has come all the way back from a neck injury that halted his 2013 season. 

"That felt good," Wilson said to the New York Daily News. "I definitely know I'm cleared now."


Cordarrelle Patterson sits out as precaution
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson did not practice Friday because of a "tweaked foot," reports the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

He was sitting out as a precaution, and the injury is not expected to be serious.
