Team: 

Date Player
7/29/2016 DeAndre Levy, Det, LB
Levy played just 17 defensive snaps last year because of a preseason hip injury that eventually required surgery, and after taking part in OTAs and minicamp this spring, the Lions placed him on the non-football injury list at the start of camp.

Analysis: Neither Levy nor Lions head coach Jim Caldwell would shed any light on how bad Levy's latest injury is, and Caldwell insisted the team is just being cautious with its star linebacker.
7/29/2016 Darius Slay, Det, CB
Slay signed a four-year extension with the Lions worth about $50 million, a deal that lasts through the 2020 season.

Analysis: The 25-year-old cornerback was heading into the fourth and final season of his rookie contract, and now Detroit doesn't have to worry about losing him to free agency in 2017.
7/29/2016 Roy Helu Jr., Oak, RB
The Raiders placed Helu physically unable to perform list as he recovers from offseason surgery on both hips.

Analysis: Helu has been removed from the Raiders' roster, a tough blow for the versatile back who had some fantasy value in deeper leagues.
7/29/2016 Tony Carter, NO, CB
The Saints waived Carter because of an unspecified injury.

Analysis: He had no fantasy value.
7/29/2016 B.J. McBryde, SF, DE
The San Francisco 49ers signed McBryde to a two-year deal Friday.

Analysis: The 6-foot-4, 292-pound McBryde originally signed with Philadelphia as an undrafted free agent in May 2015 and was waived in October. The former University of Connecticut player was signed to Green Bay's practice in November, signed a reserve/future contract in January and was waived Monday.
7/29/2016 Darrelle Revis, NYJ, CB
Revis says there's no timetable for when he will fully practice as he continues to recover from offseason wrist surgery.

Analysis: Revis was injured early last season and played through a torn ligament in his right wrist that required surgery in March. He participated in some individual drills during minicamp and now training camp but has watched from the sideline during 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills.
7/29/2016 Marcell Dareus, Buf, DT
Dareus won't be ready for the start of training camp, getting placed on the active/non-football injury list Friday.

Analysis: Dareus should join the team in the near future, though not for the first practice Saturday. He had only two sacks last season after having a career-high 10 in 2014.
7/29/2016 Kyle Williams, Buf, DT
Williams, coming off knee surgery last season, was placed on the active/physically unable to perform list Friday.

Analysis: Williams was limited to six games last season and had one sack. He recorded 21 sacks for the Bills from 2012-14.
7/29/2016 Andre Johnson, Ind, WR
Johnson has agreed to terms with the Titans.

Analysis: The 35-year-old is hoping to show he still has something left in the tank after having a relatively disappointing 2015 with the Colts after spending his first 12 seasons with the Texans. Johnson had 41 catches for 503 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games last year. He's eighth in NFL history with 1,053 receptions and ninth in receiving yards with 14,100.
7/29/2016 Victor Cruz, NYG, WR
After missing all of last season and being limited to six games over the past two, Cruz was a full-go as the Giants held their first practice at training camp Friday.

Analysis: Cruz participated in every drill, caught passes and worked at recovering fumbles. He didn't show any signs of being limited either by his knee or the calf injury that plagued him last year. The next step will be doing it in practice and then games.
7/29/2016 Tyler Eifert, Cin, TE
Eifert had surgery two months ago to repair a partial ligament tear that he suffered during the Pro Bowl. He was in a cast for six weeks and has to wear a protective boot for at least another week.

Analysis: Eifert, who set a club record for touchdown catches by a tight end (13), could be sidelined or limited for the first few games of the regular season.
7/29/2016 Sammy Watkins, Buf, WR
Watkins will open camp on the Bills' active/non-football injury list.

Analysis: Watkins is coming off foot surgery in April.
7/29/2016 Rey Maualuga, Cin, LB
Maualuga passed his preseason physical on Friday and was cleared to practice.

Analysis: Maualuga was placed on the active/non-football injury list Tuesday. The Bengals did not divulge the nature of the injury for Maualuga, who had dealt with hamstring issues and had to sit out the majority of Cincinnati's offseason work. He ranked third on the team with 75 tackles last season.
7/29/2016 Hakeem Nicks, NO, WR
Nicks has joined the Saints at training camp and practiced with the team for the first time Friday.

Analysis: The 28-year-old Nicks is taking a spot on the 90-man preseason roster but will likely need to impress in camp to make the regular-season roster. The former first-round pick played only six games last season for the Giants, making seven catches for 54 yards. His production has dipped significantly since posting 1,000-yard seasons in 2010 and 2011.
7/29/2016 Marqise Lee, Jax, WR
The Jaguars held Lee out of practice Friday with a left hamstring injury, the latest setback for a third-year pro who can't seem to stay on the field.

Analysis: Lee has missed significant time with ankle, hamstring and knee injuries since the Jaguars selected him in the second round in 2014. He appeared in 23 games over his first two seasons, making 52 catches for 613 yards with two touchdowns.
7/29/2016 Darren Sproles, Phi, RB
The Eagles signed Sproles to a one-year contract extension Friday. The deal is worth $4.5 million, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, and keeps Sproles with the team through the 2017 season. Sproles skipped all three weeks of voluntary organized team activity practices in May but reported for the team's mandatory minicamp in June.

Analysis: Since arriving in Philadelphia in 2014 via a trade with the Saints, Sproles was named to consecutive Pro Bowls as a return specialist, returning 77 punts for 952 yards with four touchdowns in the past two seasons. Sproles has 646 rushing yards, 775 receiving yards and 14 total touchdowns during his two seasons in Philadelphia.
7/29/2016 Arian Foster, Mia, RB
Foster was played on the active-physically unable to perform list by the Dolphins at the start of training camp Friday.

Analysis: Foster is coming back from Achilles tendon surgery last fall. He signed a $1.5 million, one-year deal this month with Miami, saying he was fully healthy. When Foster returns, he's expected to compete for backup duty behind second-year pro Jay Ajayi.
7/29/2016 Cavellis Luckett, Bal, LB
Luckett was placed on IR with an undisclosed injury.

Analysis: He had fantasy value.
7/29/2016 Jumal Rolle, Bal, CB
Rolle was placed on IR with a torn Achilles.

Analysis: He had no fantasy value.
7/28/2016 Josh Doctson, Was, WR
The Redskins placed Doctson on the physically unable to perform list Thursday with a strained Achilles.

Analysis: The first-round pick did not participate in organized team activities and minicamp because of the Achilles strain, which took place during spring workouts.
