Golden Tate knocks off the rust
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:15 pm ET) Lions receiver Golden Tate (shoulder) came off the PUP list Monday in time to participate in the team's first practice.

"Still a little rusty out there, still have to trust myself and trust my hands," he told the Detroit Free Press. "But I like the way we work around here, coach (Jim Caldwell) does a great job at taking care of our legs. After Day 1, I’m excited about [Tuesday] and I’m just going to keep on getting better day to day."

Tate said a shoulder injury was a first for him. “I kind of trusted the doctors," he said. "The doctors said I would be back by camp and here I am practicing Day 1. However, there was a lot of rehabbing and strengthening the muscles around it so it didn’t shut down, but I feel like I’m close to being pretty good."

Caldwell called Tate "a very important piece to our offense."


RB Damien Williams displaying 'second gear'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2:09 pm ET) Dolphins running back Damien Williams, an undrafted free agent who starred at Oklahoma before getting dismissed from the program, is opening eyes at training camp. Coach Joe Philbin said Williams has good hands and "a little bit of a second gear."

"I think he’s got that explosiveness," Philbin continued. "He shuffled one or two times today on a draw, I know we corrected him one time where he kind of danced in the hole a little bit, but typically he’s been decisive. When he really makes up his mind, you kind of see him moving away from people. I think he catches the ball well, I like what he’s done so far."

Williams (5-11, 222 pounds) ran for 946 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2012 with Oklahoma. He dealt with an ankle injury last year before getting dismissed in November.


Joe Looney taking advantage of Alex Boone's holdout
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:56 pm ET) 49ers guard Joe Looney is working with the first team while Alex Boone holds out for a better contract. According to CSNBayArea.com, Looney's performance could affect how the team handles Boone's holdout.

"I’m approaching training camp as a time to compete and get better, and I want to show the coaches I’m getting better every day," Looney said. "Alex Boone is a hell of a player and a hell of a guy, and him being gone is his business. But watching him on film every day, I want to come in and do a hell of a job like he does."

Coach Jim Harbaugh praised Looney's performance so far.


Tony Romo to practice Tuesday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:29 pm ET) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will practice Tuesday after all the players were off Monday, reports the Dallas Morning News. Coming off back surgery, Romo participated in the first training camp practice last Thursday, then was given Friday off.

He took part in full-contact practices Saturday and Sunday.


Brandin Cooks on bubble screen equals touchdown
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:20 pm ET) Saints rookie receiver Brandin Cooks turned a bubble screen into a long touchdown Tuesday, the second time he's produced the top play in a training camp practice, reports the New Orleans Times Picayune.

With left tackle Terron Armstead opening up a hole, Cooks shot through and no one was catching him. "What's a certainty is that won't be the only screen pass [Drew] Brees will chuck at Cooks this season," the paper said.

Cooks also hauled in a 20-yard back shoulder throw from Brees, beating cornerback Champ Bailey. "It's a throw and catch that's challenging to perfect without much time together," the paper gushed. "Brees and Cooks made it look routine."


Seahawks make roster moves
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:06 pm ET) The Seahawks put receiver Taylor Price on injured reserve, released cornerback Chandler Fenner and guard Bronson Irwin, and signed wide receiver Randall Carroll.

Kelvin Benjamin showing quick improvement
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:02 pm ET) Panthers rookie receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who suffered a bone bruise in his knee Sunday, said he woke up Tuesday feeling like a new man, reports the team's website. He'll wait for the OK from trainers but expects to resume practicing soon.

Benjamin reiterated that he'll play in preseason games.
