Aug 4 2015 - Arian Foster (Texans), RB Arian Foster suffered a serious groin injury in Monday's training camp practice and will require surgery.
According to the Houston Chronicle, Foster will have surgery but should be ready to return sometime during the regular season.
The recovery time if Foster indeed opts for surgery would likely necessitate a roster move and Foster would be a candidate for the injured reserve list with a designation to return later in the season.
Foster, 28, missed 11 games in the past two seasons and played in 13 games in 2014.
Behind Foster, the Texans have Alfred Blue, Jonathan Grimes and Chris Polk and rookie Kenny Hilliard.
Coach Bill O'Brien said Foster would be monitored but did not discuss the injury in detail.
Aug 3 2015 - Jason Pierre-Paul (Giants), DE Jason Pierre-Paul, who has reportedly been holed up in his Florida home recovering from a series of traumatic injuries to his right hand resulting from a July 4 fireworks accident, finally reached out to general manager Jerry Reese and vice president of medical services Ronnie Barnes to open a dialogue.
Reese, who on Sunday expressed his concern and compassion for the team's franchise player's plight, confirmed to WFAN's Boomer and Carton Monday morning that he and Pierre-Paul spoke by phone, but otherwise didn't provide any other details into what was said.
"It was a personal conversation and I want to keep it private between him and I," Reese said on Monday morning. "I'll just leave it at that."
Aug 2 2015 - Bobby Wagner (Seahawks), LB Bobby Wagner signed a four-year, $43 million contract extension with the Seahawks, making him the NFL's highest-paid middle linebacker.
The fourth-year player agreed to the extension late Saturday night and the team made the signing official on Sunday.
Team owner Paul Allen confirmed Wagner's extension on his Twitter account: "@Seahawks signed LB @Bwagz54 to a 4 year extension tonight! #GoHawks."
Wagner's is the second megadeal completed by the Seahawks in two days. Quarterback Russell Wilson signed a four-year, $87.6 million contract extension before training camp began Friday.
When word of Wagner's deal got out Saturday night, Wilson tweeted, "My bro!!!! #BigTime."
On Friday, Wagner expressed some annoyance that his deal was not yet done, responding to a question about a deadline by saying, "Now. That's my deadline."
"If it happens, it happens," he said. "All I know is at the end of the season you all know that I'm the best linebacker in this league, and that's my focus. Everything else will take care of itself."
Head coach Pete Carroll was emphatic Friday that the Seahawks plan to sign him soon.
"We're on it," Carroll said. "Whoever thought that we were done with that thing, that was not right. We're on it, and we're going to keep competing to get that done. We have planned for this for a long time, and nothing has changed at all in that. Our guys are working at it by the hour."
Wagner, 25, has recorded 363 combined tackles and nine sacks in three NFL seasons since being selected in the second round of the 2012 draft out of Utah State. He made his first Pro Bowl and All-Pro teams last season when he made 104 tackles and two sacks.
Wagner has started 40 of the 41 regular-season games he's played. He also has five interceptions, 13 passes defensed and one fumble recovery. In eight postseason games (all starts) he has totaled 82 tackles, two interceptions and three passes defensed.
Jul 31 2015 - Earl Thomas (Seahawks), S Earl Thomas (shoulder) failed his physical with the Seahawks Friday (July 31) and begins training camp on the physically unable to perform list. He still counts against the 90-man roster.
Jul 31 2015 - Chris Clemons (Jaguars), DE Chris Clemons failed his physical with the Jaguars Friday (July 31) and begins training camp on the non-football injury list. He still counts agaisnt the 90-man roster.
Clemons was the only one of 90 Jaguars players who failed to report on Thursday, the reporting day for all veterans. And while head coach Gus Bradley seemed to accept the notion that the veteran end was at least in attendance, it was clear he wasn't pleased that the 12-year veteran wouldn't be in uniform and on the field with his teammates the next day.
"This one is a little concerning," Bradley said in comparing Clemons being a no-show at the team's OTAs during the offseason and now not showing up when everyone else did for training camp. "Hopefully we come up with a decision to speed things up a little bit quicker. I don't see this as a situation that's extended."
Bradley seemed to be accurate in his assessment when Clemons did arrive at the facility Friday morning, the first day of practice. But he wasn't dressed when the team took the field at 10 a.m. to practice in front of nearly 2,000 season-ticket holders. As a result, the Jaguars placed Clemons on the active/non-football injury list.
Afterwards, Bradley only shared certain news about Clemons' status, including what the nature of his injury was.
"I won't get into that part of it," Bradley said.
Nor was the Jaguars' third-year head coach able to give a timetable as to Clemons return to the field.
"I wouldn't put any timetable to it," Bradley said. "He's working out with guys now, with (trainer Scott Trulock) and with (strength and conditioning coach Tom Myslinski), but it's good to see him back here."
Instead, Bradley called Clemons' status, "a challenging situation."
