Kelvin Benjamin WR CAR 4 days ago
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin said Thursday he is healthy after being limited in offseason workouts by hamstring injuries, according to NFL.com. Benjamin missed the first two weeks of organized team activities in late May, and injured his other hamstring during minicamp in June. "I feel great," Benjamin said. "I told the trainers that I'm full to go the first day." Head coach Ron Rivera said Benjamin was in great shape after concerns about Benjamin gaining weight. "I'm used to it, all through college," Benjamin said in regard to his 245-pound playing weight. "It's something that pushes you and motivates you and gets you going." Benjamin had 73 catches for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns during his rookie 2014 season. Benjamin is excited to begin training with rookie Devin Funchess. "That's two big bodies for Cam to throw to," Benjamin said. "It's going to be hard for teams to double-guard me this year."

Kevin White WR CHI 5 days ago
Chicago Bears wide receiver Kevin White will begin training camp on the physically unable to perform list because of a shin injury, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. White, who missed all of last month's mandatory minicamp due to the injury, is eligible to return at any time during camp and will need to build up his stamina before he is added to the active roster. The 22-year-old was selected seventh overall in this year's draft and is expected to compete for a starting role once he returns to practice. Head coach John Fox has a history of limiting his rookies, but the team selected White shortly after trading star receiver Brandon Marshall to the New York Jets, indicating that they have plans to use him sooner rather than later. There is currently no timetable for White's return, but he is expected to join the team sometime during the early portion of camp.

Ryan Kerrigan LB WAS 5 days ago
Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan agreed to a five-year, $57.5 million contract extension Wednesday, according to NFL.com. Kerrigan, who has started all 64 games during his four-year NFL career, registered 64 tackles, a career-high 13.5 sacks and an NFL-high five forced fumbles last season. "To get to a moment like this where you get a chance to play out the rest of your NFL career with the team that drafted you, the team that you love, the city that you love, it hasn't really hit me yet, but it's an awesome feeling," Kerrigan said Wednesday. "Now it's my job to go reward the Redskins for the faith they put in me by playing well this year, and for the rest of my career." The 26-year-old was set to make roughly $7 million this season before the new deal begins, which will make him the third highest-paid linebacker in the league behind Justin Houston and Clay Matthews.
Vontaze Burfict LB CIN 5 days ago
Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict is targeting a return from his knee injury for the team's third preseason game, but he will be held out of practice early in training camp, according to the team's official website. Burfict underwent microfracture surgery on his knee after suffering the injury in Week 5 last season, and he has been held out of offseason workouts as he works his way back. The 24-year-old was placed on the physically unable to perform list ahead of the beginning of training camp this week, but he is eligible to return at any time. There is some doubt about his availability for Week 1 of the regular season, but Burfict's participation levels in training camp will go a long way in determining when he will be ready to return. If his progress is not as swift as the team anticipates, he still has an outside shot at being placed on the regular season PUP list, which would keep him out for the first six games.
