PUPShakim PhillipsWR PIT (8) 4 hours ago
The Steelers placed Phillips (sports hernia) on the PUP list Thursday, NFL Network's James Palmer reports.
Phillips is simply recovering from an offseason sports hernia, however he was not given a timeline to return. When cleared for activity, he will compete for slotting behind Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton, Darrius Heyward-Bey and Sammie Coates on the Steelers' wide receiver depth chart.
PUPJames Carpenter NYJ (11) 4 hours ago
Carpenter was placed on the Jets' PUP list Thursday due to a tweaked hamstring, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
Simply updating a previous report, Carpenter had been surprisingly listed on the Jets' PUP list Thursday, but for undisclosed reasons. His head coach, Todd Bowles, was able to shed light on the situation after the team's first training camp practice, but Carpenter was not given a timeline for his expected return.
PUPBreno Giacomini NYJ (11) 4 hours ago
Giacomini (back) will be sidelined for at least one week according to head coach Todd Bowles, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
Giacomini was placed on the Jets' PUP list Thursday, but his reason for being listed there was previously undisclosed. Coming off a down year on one of the more inapt offensive lines in the league, the 30-year-old NFL veteran does not appear to be in danger of losing his starting right tackle job even while missing time during training camp.
Jason Pierre-PaulDL NYG (8) 4 hours ago
More than a year removed from blowing off his fingers in a fireworks accident, Pierre-Paul said his right hand feels the same as his left hand, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. He plans to ditch the club and wear a specially designed glove this season. "I'm not worried about no club," Pierre-Paul said. "My hand feels great. No complaining, no nothing. I've been training hard. The club is not going to be an issue."
Playing opposite Oliver Vernon, Pierre-Paul is unlikely to be doubled very often, and if he's his old self, he could wreak havoc on opposing quarterbacks.
PDarrelle RevisDB NYJ (11) 5 hours ago
Revis (wrist) is listed as day-to-day according to head coach Todd Bowles, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
After undergoing offseason wrist surgery, Revis subsequently missed the entirety of the Jets' offseason program with the expectation to return in time for training camp. No setbacks in his rehabilitation have been reported, though, so the Jets are likely just being cautious with their veteran cornerback during the commencement of training camp.
PMatt ForteRB NYJ (11) 5 hours ago
Forte is day-to-day with a "tweaked" hamstring, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
The injury is not considered serious as the Jets are likely being cautious with the centerpiece of their new-look backfield. For fantasy purposes, the sooner Forte takes the field, the sooner we will know how the Jets may plan to utilize him in OC Chan Gailey's scheme. Though Forte projects to be the workhorse, Bilal Powell offers similar passing game chops and Khiry Robinson (lower leg) may be the best-suited back for goal-line duties out of the Jets' RB stable.
PJamie CollinsLB NE (9) 5 hours ago
Collins (undisclosed) was not present at Thursday's practice, CSN New England reports.
Per the report, his absence was an expected one and is not thought to be related to any sort of issues with his contract. It's possible that Collins, who is entering the final year of his rookie deal, may be dealing with a minor issue, but the fact that he didn't open training camp on the Patriots' preseason PUP list hints at a return sooner rather than later.
PLe'Veon BellRB PIT (8) 5 hours ago
Head coach Mike Tomlin said Thursday that the appeal of Bell's (knee) four-game suspension will take place in the second week of August, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
In conjunction with Tomlin's remarks, Bell wouldn't elaborate on the reason for allegedly missing drug tests, which precipitated his second ban related to the topic. The distraction aside, Bell expected to be fully recovered from last season's MCL and PCL tears at the start of training camp. The Steelers' first practice will ultimately relay his current level of health, but DeAngelo Williams is yet again in a prime position to have sustained relevance for the first quarter of the 2016 schedule.
PUPFrostee RuckerDL ARI (9) 5 hours ago
Rucker (foot) will ease into training camp, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. "At this time in his career there's not a need to go early," head coach Bruce Arians said Thursday. "Just take our time with him."
Rucker underwent offseason ankle surgery and proceeded to miss spring drills. His rehab will extend into training camp, with his age (32) likely aiding in the decision to cap the defensive end's reps off the bat.
PRobert NkemdicheDL ARI (9) 5 hours ago
Nkemdiche is tending to an ankle sprain and is day-to-day, according to head coach Bruce Arians.
Earlier this week, Nkemdiche sustained the injury during the Cardinals' QB School, forcing him to the sideline for the early sessions of training camp. The 2016 first-round pick doesn't have a clear-cut timetable for a return, but he's expected to bolster the defensive line ranks once he's healthy enough to partake in drills.
