Cardinals expect John Abraham in 5-6 days


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he expects Pro Bowl outside linebacker John Abraham to report to camp within five to six days, reports the Arizona Republic. Abraham was arrested last month in the Atlanta area and charged with DUI.

Given that it's his second known DUI arrest since coming into the league, Abraham could be looking at a two- to four-game suspension, the paper said. He led Arizona with 11.5 sacks last year.


Doug Marrone: C.J. Spiller 'looks more explosive' this year


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Bills coach Doug Marrone said running back C.J. Spiller "looks more explosive than he did during the season last year." Spiller was bothered by a high ankle sprain much of last season, when he ran for 927 yards and two touchdowns.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Redskins receiver Jerry Rice tore the labrum in his left shoulder Thursday and will need surgery, coach Jay Gruden said, adding Rice likely will go on injured reserve. Rice fell on his shoulder trying to make a catch in the end zone.

The son of the Hall of Famer went undrafted out of UNLV before hooking on with the Redskins.


Jets add RB Michael Smith


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Kenny Stills back on the field


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Saints receiver Kenny Stills, who had been out a week with a quad injury, caught passes and participated in Friday's walkthrough, reports The New Orleans Advocate.

Both Bears' safety spots up for grabs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Five-time Pro Bowler Adrian Wilson and Danny McCray worked as the Bears' starting safeties Friday, but both positions are truly up for grabs, reports ESPN.com. Ryan Mundy, Brock Vereen and M.D. Jennings also have taken snaps with the starters.

Chris Conte (shoulder) and Craig Steltz (groin) remain on the PUP list. If Conte comes back healthy, he'll be a favorite to start at free safety, the website said.


Giants shuffle cornerbacks


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Giants waived/injured cornerback Travis Howard with a knee injury and signed corner Chandler Fenner, who spent last season on the Seahawks' IR with a knee injury.

'Pretty even workload' expected for Saints' top 3 backs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Saints have at least a three-headed monster at running back, with Mark Ingram, Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson expected to receive significant snaps. Then there's pass-catching back Travaris Cadet. 

ESPN's Saints reporter, Mike Triplett, expects "a pretty even workload between the Saints' top three running backs, with Thomas playing more of the nickel/third-down role now that Darren Sproles has been traded away. But it's always possible that the Saints could stick with the hot hand as the season goes along."


Cowboys sign Ken Boatright


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Already thin on the defensive line, the Cowboys signed end Kenneth Boatright to a two-year deal. Boatright was released by the Seahawks in June.

Benny Cunningham ahead of Tre Mason for backup job


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Rams running back Benny Cunningham has "held on firmly to the primary backup role" behind Zac Stacy, reports TurfShowTimes.com. Cunningham, who averaged 5.6 yards per carry last year, is holding off third-round pick Tre Mason.

"But things could change once the preseason begins," the report said. "The Rams didn't draft Mason not to play him."


Packers 'fearing the worst' on Jared Abbrederis


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Packers "were hoping for the best but fearing the worst" on the knee injury rookie receiver Jared Abbrederis suffered in practice Thursday, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. A source told the paper the early diagnosis is a torn ACL.

The team was waiting for test results to confirm that finding.

A fifth-round pick out of Wisconsin, Abbrederis "had been giving a good account of himself in the first five practices" and playing "bigger and stronger than advertised," the paper said. He also was a top candidate to return punts.


Marshawn Lynch will practice soon


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, who ended his contract holdout Thursday, did not practice Friday. Running backs coach Sherman Smith said Lynch has been cleared and will practice soon.

"We are looking for him getting out there and getting some reps," Smith told the Seattle Times. "I can’t wait to see it."

Lynch is unlikely to participate in Saturday's scrimmage, or to get much work in preseason games.

"Not much more than he’s gotten in the past," Smith said of the preseason. "Marshawn doesn’t do a lot of running in the preseason, so that’s the way it’s going to be. He comes back, nothing is going to change. Absolutely nothing."


No Josh Gordon decision until Monday at the earliest


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Browns won't get a ruling on receiver Josh Gordon's appeal of his drug suspension until Monday at the earliest, reports ESPNCleveland.com. Under the league's substance abuse policy, Gordon is staring at an indefinite suspension lasting at least a year.

Commissioner Roger Goodell was asked Friday how running back Ray Rice could receive a two-game suspension for a domestic violence incident and Gordon potentially could get a year for a failed marijuana test.

"We have a drug program that is collectively bargained and it has a step process," Goodell said. "It takes four incidents before you actually reach a suspension in a drug-related case."


Report: Michael Crabtree has sore hamstring


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) When 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh announced Friday that receiver Michael Crabtree will miss "a week or two," he did not specify the injury. A source told ESPN's Josina Anderson, "I think he has a sore hamstring. Nothing too serious right now. I think they want to hold him back a bit to be cautious."

Johnny Manziel struggles with accuracy Friday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel went 3 for 11 with an interception in Friday's practice, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Manziel also drew an unsportsmanlike conduct flag after he ran for a touchdown and tossed the ball between the goalposts.

Quarterback Brian Hoyer completed 7 of 13 passes, with several completions coming on checkdowns, the paper said. Hoyer remains the favorite to start the season opener.


Tashaun Gipson leaves with apparent knee injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Browns starting free safety Tashaun Gipson left Friday's practice with an apparent left knee injury, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The severity of the injury was not known.

Gipson started 15 games last year and made five interceptions.


Trent Richardson 'probably is who he is'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora wrote in his analysis on the Colts that he's not banking on a bounceback season from running back Trent Richardson.

"At this point he probably is who he is," La Canfora continued. "The Colts will give him every opportunity to show otherwise, especially with [Vick] Ballard out, but will the explosion ever be there?"

La Canfora even floated the idea of Indy trading a tight end for a running back like Buffalo's C.J. Spiller.

Richardson averaged 2.9 yards per carry last season while rushing for three touchdowns and fumbling twice.


Packers activate Nick Perry


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Packers activated linebacker Nick Perry from the PUP list, and he practiced for the first time Thursday. Perry had been rehabbing foot and knee injuries.

Michael Crabtree will miss 'a week or two'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said No. 1 receiver Michael Crabtree is "working through something" and will miss "a week or two" of practice. Harbaugh did not reveal Crabtree's injury, but the coach said it's not related to his past foot or Achilles injuries.

Patriots worked out Brady Quinn


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Quarterback Brady Quinn worked out for the Patriots on Monday, reports ESPN. Quinn was a first-round draft pick in 2007 and went 4-16 in 20 career starts.

He worked with Pats offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels when both were with Denver.


Andre Ellington back at practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Cardinals running back Andre Ellington, who had been bothered by a minor neck injury, returned to practice Friday, reports the team's website.

John Brown hits a speed bump


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Cardinals rookie receiver John Brown, who has wowed coaches in training camp, was unable to practice Friday due to a hamstring injury, reports the team's website. The injury is not considered serious.

Eric Decker dealing with hamstring injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Jets receiver Eric Decker missed most of Friday's practice with what the team called a minor hamstring injury. "It's a little bit of a hamstring," coach Rex Ryan told ESPN.com. "It's not like he pulled a hamstring. We took care of him."

Decker, who apparently suffered the injury Thursday, is expected to play Saturday night in the annual Green & White scrimmage, the website said.

Arian Foster has 'kind of a day-to-day thing'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien told reporters that running back Arian Foster, who did not practice Friday, is "doing OK. It’s kind of a day-to-day thing. It’s nothing serious. I would assume – (but) guess you can’t assume anything – he’d be back pretty soon."

The Houston Chronicle said Foster presumably is dealing with a strained hamstring. Foster practiced Wednesday but missed three workouts and part of a fourth this week. O'Brien reiterated he expects Foster to be "a three-down back," the paper said.
