Michael Campanaro WR BAL 2 days ago
Campanaro has tear in his quad and will be out until training camp, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Campanaro suffered the injury during Wednesday's practice, forcing him to leave the field to undergo additional tests. An MRI revealed the muscle tear, which will sideline Campanro for a couple months and, presumably, the rest of OTA's. Campanaro is expected to compete for the No. 3 receiver spot this season and could also be a special teams option.
Ryan Clady DEN 2 days ago3 Comments
Clady is expected to miss the 2015 season after tearing his left ACL during Wednesday's practice, ESPN reports.
This is obviously a huge blow for the Broncos, who will be without their primary pass-protector for the duration of the season. At this point, it's unclear where they'll look for immediate help at tackle. Denver selected Ty Sambrailo out of Colorado State in the second round, but the team could also look to the free agent market for a more experienced option to protect Peyton Manning's blind side.
Mike Evans WR TB 2 days ago
Evans left Thursday's OTA practice early due to a right hamstring strain, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The team is yet to release a full report, but it looks as though Evans will likely be limited in the short-term. The second-year receiver, who dealt with a similar injury around this time last year, will be counted on as the No. 1 target in the passing game after a strong debut campaign in which he hauled in 65 passes for 1,051 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Mark Ingram RB NO 2 days ago1 Comment
Ingram was limited by a minor foot injury during Thursday's OTA's, Mike Triplett of ESPN reports.
Coach Sean Payton downplayed the issue and emphasized that Ingram has been participating when possible is doing well. It doesn't look to be anything that will linger too long into the summer for Ingram.
Kelvin Benjamin WR CAR 2 days ago
Benjamin (hamstring) did not participate in Thursday's OTA session.
Benjamin continues to work through a hamstring injury suffered a few weeks ago during an offseason workout. The team has not provided a return timetable, but the injury is not considered to be be overly serious and should not impact his availability for training camp or the start of the 2015 season.
Jared Abbrederis WR GB 2 days ago
Abbrederis (knee) was a full participant at Thursday's OTA session, Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The rookie out of Wisconsin missed his entire rookie season after tearing his ACL in training camp last August. The dynamic receiver, who could factor into the punt/kick return battle, was not limited Thursday and appears to be close to full strength as OTA's get underway.
Duke Williams DB BUF 2 days ago
Williams, who was previously thought to be the starting strong safety favorite following the offseason departure of Da'Norris Searcy, looks to have some new competition in Corey Graham, as Graham appears likely to be switched from cornerback to safety, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said coach Rex Ryan of Graham, "You want to get your best 11 on the field. This provides him an opportunity. He's got that unique ability where he can do both things. So let's see what we have out there. This is no slam on Duke (Williams), or (Bacarri) Rambo, or (Jonathan) Meeks or any of those guys. This is us doing what's best for the team. If that means Corey, we feel good about him playing safety, that's where he will be."
This is certainly not a done deal yet, and Williams still could win the job while Graham gets used as a super-utility type of player. But Graham is coming off an excellent season and has much more experience than Williams, so Williams is now far from a sure thing to see the bulk of strong safety snaps.
Cassius Vaughn DB BAL 2 days ago
Vaughn agreed to terms with the Ravens on Thursday, BaltimoreRavens.com reports.
The 27-year-old appeared in 13 games for the Lions last season, making five starts and finishing with 18 tackles five passes defended and two picks. The unrestricted free agent has also spent time with the Broncos and Colts since entering the league out of Ole Miss in 2010. He'll primarily provide depth in the secondary, competing for backup snaps with the likes of Rashaan Melvin, Tray Walker, Asa Jackson and Kyle Arrington, among others.
DeMeco Ryans LB PHI 2 days ago
Ryans (Achilles) is a full go for OTA's on Thursday, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
As expected, the new addition will be ready to participate in drills from day one, and, barring a setback, he shouldn't be hampered as he attempts to carve out a role throughout offseason workouts. The 30-year-old has proven to be a dynamic player, at times, in the past, but he's now torn his Achilles twice and will battle with Mychal Kendricks and Kiko Alonso for snaps at inside linebacker.
G. J. Kinne WR PHI 2 days ago
Kinne has switched positions to wide receiver, Geoff Mosher of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Kinne spent much of the last two years as a quarterback on the Philadelphia practice squad, but he'll now be tried out at receiver in hopes of elevating himself to the 53-man roster. Chances are, his only shot of making the cut will be on special teams, but it's too early to rule anything out. The Tulsa product has never appeared in an NFL game.
