-- Brian Quick Watch --
Sun Aug 2, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

The St. Louis Rams official website reports Rams WR Brian Quick (shoulder) suffered a dislocated shoulder and torn rotator cuff last October against the Kansas City Chiefs. He participated in OTAs on a limited basis this spring and continues to progress well. “It’s remarkable what he’s overcome,” HC Jeff Fisher said. “The damage that he sustained to his shoulder was significant and there was some talk early on that it might have been career ending. But he kept fighting through each stage of the rehab one week after the next and he kept getting better. We sent him back down to Dr. James Andrews and he was amazed at his progress.” Quick noted the arduous road he has taken to get to this point, saying he clocked in for rehab from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. most days during the offseason. “I am a fighter and everybody can see it,” Quick said. “I want to fight out here with my teammates, and brothers, and for the coaches, and for this program. I am just doing it for them and I feel like I can continue to do what I need to come out here and work every day.” The fourth-year wideout said he still has some small things to work on, but for the most part has full range of motion and is ready to go. “I’m feeling good and I’m just ready to start the process of staying consistent and just having fun with the guys out here,” Quick said. “It’s going to be a process and I just have to trust coaches. And they’re going to watch me and see how I look, and we’re going to go from there.”

-- Browns Injury Update - Johnson & West Sit --
Sun Aug 2, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

The Plain Dealer reports Browns RB Duke Johnson (hamstring) and RB Terrance West (calf) remained sidelined at Browns training camp Sunday after suffering injuries in practice on Saturday, the first day in pads. DL Billy Winn, who suffered a potentially serious knee and ankle injury Saturday, was not on the field Sunday. Judging from Winn's face as he left the field on a cart Saturday, he could be out an extended period. Johnson, the third-round pick out of Miami, suffered a hamstring injury on a running drill in 11-on-11s, and West came up limping with a calf injury about 15 minutes later. Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said in a press conference after practice that the backs "might be out a little bit.'' In addition to Johnson and West, RB Glenn Winston is still idle with his knee injury. That leaves RB Isaiah Crowell, RB Shaun Draughn and RB Luke Lundy to divide up most of the reps. It's not yet known how long Johnson and West will be out, but the Browns have Monday off, which will give them a chance to rest up. DB Brandon Stephens also sat out practice Sunday after suffering a hamstring injury Saturday.

Sun Aug 2, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

The Dallas Cowboys official website reports DE Jeremy Mincey has reported to Cowboys training camp and plans on practicing Sunday, according to reports. The news comes after a brief holdout to start training camp, as the veteran defensive end is seeking a pay bump on the final year of his two-year contract with the team. It remains to be seen if he'll actually get that bump, but Cowboys officials made it clear earlier this week that no negotiations would be happening as long as Mincey refrained from reporting to camp. He has been fined at least $30,000 since he failed to show up on Wednesday afternoon, and the front office has drawn a hard line in the days since. “We certainly won’t be talking to him about it while he’s not here,” said Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones.

-- Stephen Hill Carted Off the field --
Sat Aug 1, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

Trainers taped Hill's knee before helping him on to a cart. A Panthers spokesman said Hill is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Sunday. But the initial diagnosis was not encouraging, according to a source.

-- Tenny Palepoi Fractures Foot --
Sat Aug 1, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports Chargers DE Tenny Palepoi was forced to exit a drill early in practice, being carted off the field. Additional testing revealed a foot fracture expected to sideline him for two months, a source said. Palepoi earned a roster spot at last year's camp as an undrafted rookie from Utah. He proved to be a versatile player, able to play across the line as an end or nose tackle. The 24-year-old appeared in every game as a rookie, averaging about 18 defensive snaps a week. He finished with 16 tackles on the year. The Chargers have options on how they handle the injury. One would be to wait for Palepoi's return, a difficult proposition with the constriction of a 53-man roster. He also could be placed on injured reserve, although doing so now would expose him to waivers. Either way, the extended absence of a promising, developing player is a blow.

The Contra Costa Times reports two deep passes provided excitement and hope on the Raiders' first day of practice. Both were thrown, high and along the sideline, by QB Derek Carr. Both were caught and held, in traffic, by WR Michael Crabtree. A disappointment last season with the 49ers, Crabtree had the look of a playmaker Friday. "He stood out today, made some nice catches," HC Jack Del Rio said. "Mike's a proven player. I don't think we have to worry much about Mike, other than becoming a good teammate, getting himself in tiptop shape and being ready to have a great year." "It's just easy to throw to him," Carr said of Crabtree. "And that's a credit to his route-running abilities, that's a credit to the extra work he put in in the offseason. That guy works his tail off. You can tell when he gets out here, because he makes it look so easy. He's making one-handed catches on go routes one foot off the ground like, 'Oh, I do that every day,' which he does."

DE Malik Jackson indicated Friday that the left calf strain that forced him to leave Day 1 of camp early, was minor. He participated in a few individual drills to start Friday's practice, but headed to the sidelines without a helmet. OG Louis Vasquez returned to practice after missing Friday's afternoon walk-through with an illness. DE Antonio Smith was excused from Saturday's practices while attending a funeral.

Earlier in the day, the NFL and the players' union asked the Manhattan judge in a joint letter to resolve their dispute over Brady's suspension by Sept. 4 — six days before the Patriots' opener against Pittsburgh.

ESPN reports St. Louis Rams rookie RB Todd Gurley (torn ACL) was back on a football field Friday afternoon after about nine months. Although Gurley isn't fully recovered from a torn left ACL suffered last November, he's healthy enough to do some individual drills. It's the closest thing to actual football he's played since the injury. When asked about the simple act of being back on a field with his teammates, Gurley lit up. "It is [exciting]," Gurley said. "Instead of just being over there with the trainers, just being with the guys and getting those 15 minutes in [is great]." Gurley said he spent most of his time in St. Louis between the end of organized team activities and the start of camp aside from a quick vacation. He said he visited with his doctors about two weeks ago and got positive reports on his progress. Rams HC Jeff Fisher said Gurley still has some work to do to get back to full speed but he's moving well. "Todd did a great job on the conditioning test," Fisher said. "He's not 100 percent. He's not ready to play in a game right now but our feeling was and the decision was based on the importance for him to be able to participate not only in the walk-throughs but also in the individual stuff. We'll just kind of add things as we move forward. We're very, very encouraged as to where he is right now."

Fri Jul 31, 2015 --from FFMastermind.com

CSNBayArea.com reports San Francisco 49ers LB Michael Wilhoite, who started all 16 games last season in place of LB NaVorro Bowman, reported to training camp with a muscle strain in his leg and was placed on active/non-football injury. HC Jim Tomsula said he does not believe the injury will keep Wilhoite out of action for too long, but “we’re not going to rush him back,” he said. Wilhoite is projected to start this season, alongside Bowman. C Daniel Kilgore is expected out until at least the middle of training camp after undergoing a follow-up procedure on his left lower leg, which he fractured last season. Kilgore is on active/physically unable to perform. “We expected Daniel sometime toward middle of training camp,” Tomsula said. “That’s pushed back, but I don’t know how far back.” LB Nick Bellore reported to camp with an illness and is seeing a doctor, Tomsula said. It is not known whether Bellore will be available for the 49ers’ first full-squad practice on Saturday.
