Cowboys' Gavin Escobar: Practicing on first day of camp

News: Escobar (Achilles) practiced on the first day of Cowboys training camp, Bill Jones of CBS 11 reports.

Despite suffering a torn Achilles in Week 15 last year, Escobar was able to avoid the PUP list at the start of training camp. He is thus on track to be ready for Week 1, but it's still possible the injury could affect his explosiveness, and he's slated for another year working behind Jason Witten.

Tyler Eifert
Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Almost ready to shed walking boot
Tyler Eifert, TE, CIN
3:44 PM
News: Eifert (ankle) will only need a walking boot for one more week, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

The removal of the walking boot represents a major hurdle in Eifert's recovery from May 27 ankle surgery. While reports universally suggest his rehab is progressing as expected, Eifert is still highly questionable for Week 1, as his procedure came with a three-month timetable. At the very least, he'll miss most of training camp and the preseason.

Rhett Ellison
Vikings' Rhett Ellison: Placed on PUP list
Rhett Ellison, TE, MIN
12:04 PM
News: Ellison (knee) has been placed on the active/physically unable to perform list for the start of training camp, Ben Goessling of ESPN NFL Nation reports.

Ellison was expected to be fully recovered from the torn patellar tendon he suffered in last season's finale by the start of camp, but it appears he'll need a little extra time. He's expected to be back at practice relatively soon, where he'll compete to be the team's third tight end option behind Kyle Rudolph and MyCole Pruitt.

Crockett Gillmore
Ravens' Crockett Gillmore: Suffers hamstring injury Friday
Crockett Gillmore, TE, BAL
10:42 AM
News: Gillmore suffered a hamstring injury during Friday's practice and will undergo an MRI to assess the damage, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

At this point the severity of Gillmore's hamstring injury is unknown, while his status will continue to be monitored upon the results of his MRI. The Ravens' tight end corps is a bit crowded with Ben Watson, Maxx Williams, and Dennis Pitta alongside Gillmore, so an injury could prove costly regarding playing time early in the season.

Manasseh Garner
Manasseh Garner: Waived after surgery
Manasseh Garner, TE, DEN

News: Garner was waived by the Broncos on Thursday after undergoing an appendectomy on Wednesday, Mike Kils of 9News reports.

Garner was competing for a spot at the bottom of the depth chart for the Broncos and his surgery couldn't have come at a worse time. It can take up to a month to recover from an appendectomy, which would be enough to keep the undrafted rookie out nearly all of camp, and is likely the reason Denver waived him.

Ladarius Green
Steelers' Ladarius Green: Placed on PUP list
Ladarius Green, TE, PIT
7/28/2016
News: Green (ankle) has been placed on the Steelers' physically unable to perform list for the start of training camp, Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune reports.

Green had offseason surgery on his ankle and isn't yet recovered enough to practice with the team. The injury isn't seen as serious and the tight end should be able to practice with the team relatively soon. 2016 will be Green's first year with Pittsburgh, where he'll be the day one starter after spending four years behind Antonio Gates in San Diego.

Cameron Brate
Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Successful down the field on Day 1 of camp
Cameron Brate, TE, TB
7/28/2016
News: Brate hauled in a nice seam pass from Mike Glennon during the Bucs' first full training camp session Thursday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

The 25-year-old experienced a breakout season of sorts in 2015 in the wake of Austin Seferian-Jenkins' extended absence due to a shoulder injury. Brate often excelled at getting downfield on intermediate routes much like the one that led to the successful connection with Glennon on Thursday, and is expected to be deployed in a high-usage complementary role in 2016 with Seferian-Jenkins' return to health.

Analysis: 

Jared Cook
Packers' Jared Cook: Doesn't have timetable for return
Jared Cook, TE, GB
7/28/2016
News: Cook (foot) has no timetable for a return to practice, but the second week of the preseason could be a realistic target, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Still recovering from early-June foot surgery, Cook is unavailable for the start of training camp and will presumably miss the Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 7. Assuming he gets healthy for a portion of camp and the preseason, the 29-year-old tight end figures to compete with Richard Rodgers for snaps. Cook joined the Packers in March on a one-year, $2.75 million contract.

Analysis: 

Richard Rodgers
Packers' Richard Rodgers: Slims down for camp
Richard Rodgers, TE, GB
7/27/2016
News: Rodgers reported to training camp sporting a slimmer look, down roughly 15 pounds from last season, Peter Dougherty of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Rodgers let his conditioning get away from him the past few offseasons, but stepped up this year, appearing slimmer from head to toe in training camp on Wednesday. Part of the 24-year-old's motivation may stem from the Packers' signing of Jared Cook, who many expect to take over the starting duties this season. However, Cook heads into camp on the PUP list, giving the new-look Rodgers an early chance to impress coaches during first-team reps.

Analysis: 

Bear Pascoe
Patriots' Bear Pascoe: Joins Patriots
Bear Pascoe, TE, NE
7/27/2016
News: The Patriots have signed Pascoe, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

With fellow tight end Clay Harbor opening training camp on the Patriots' PUP list, Pascoe adds depth at the position, be he remains off the fantasy radar, with the team still rostering Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett.
