Chad Henne given green light to audible
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:48 am ET) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne said he has the green light from offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch to audible as much as he wants to, reports the Florida Times-Union.

"He’s pretty much given us all the tools. Whatever we see out there, if we have to throw it every down because they’re giving so many guys at the line of scrimmage, we’ll throw it," Henne said.

Henne said he has a better grasp of the offense in Year 2.

"Jedd has been putting a lot in our shoulders, more audibles, but it’s really just taking ownership of it. If I see something out there and I check out of something, he gets excited. It’s exciting for us because it shows him that we’re understanding the defense, understanding the offense and getting in the best plays that will work," Henne said.

For Terrance West, pass protection is the key
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:30 am ET) Browns rookie running back Terrance West must prove he can pass protect at the NFL level to make an early splash, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. If West can show well during preseason games, "he just might be able to make an impact early. He is an explosive runner and he has great hands as well," La Canfora wrote.

After Monday's practice, West said his pass protection is coming along. "Today I had some good feedback from the coaches and picked up some big blocks in pass protection," he told La Canfora.

"And I want to be an every down back in this league, so I have to show them I can run, and catch and pass protect, and today was a great day. I feel like I started really picking it up in OTAs and during the break I stayed in my playbook and that helped me get caught up to speed."


Browns expecting double coverage for Jordan Cameron
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:24 am ET) With Browns receiver Josh Gordon likely to be suspended, defenses are going to focus on stopping tight end Jordan Cameron. CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports the Browns "are fully bracing for opposing defenses to stick a linebacker and a safety" on Cameron and "sell out to stop the only big target the Browns are likely to have at their disposal."

Cameron caught 80 passes for 917 yards and seven touchdowns last year.

Ray Rice looks like the 'Rice of old'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:13 am ET) Ravens running back Ray Rice "sure has looked good in training camp," observes the Baltimore Sun. "He had two long runs Saturday where he looked like the Rice of old. He never had great speed, but his cuts were excellent."

Due to his suspension, Rice won't play until Week 3.

Tre Boston ready to practice
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:01 am ET) The Panthers activated rookie safety Tre Boston (sports hernia) from the PUP list. A fourth-round pick, Boston made 94 tackles and five interceptions last year with North Carolina.

Cowboys to put Dez Bryant in the slot more often
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:58 am ET) Dez Bryant made 11 of his 93 receptions out of the slot last season. The Cowboys plan to use him there more often this year, reports ESPN.com. 

"He's grown as an inside receiver," coach Jason Garrett said. "The trait and the qualities are different. I've been around a lot of outside receivers who looked like a fish out of water when they moved inside.

"If you picture an X receiver in right formation, there's no one outside of you. You're typically working against a corner by yourself or there's a safety rotating over the top. When you're inside, you have people inside of you and outside of you. You have a linebacker walked out, you have a safety coming down, and you have to have a feel for how to run the routes because there's a lot going on.

"It has a lot to do with your feel as an athlete -- your vision, your instincts and your experience. You have to get in there and do it."
