Redskins signed FB Keiland Williams.

Williams is an upgrade on Ryan Grant thanks to his versatility. He'll help on special teams, can do some lead blocking and can even be a power back in a pinch. Williams knows the scheme after spending the 2010 season in Washington.

Jonathan Stewart (hamstring) said he expects to miss 2-4 weeks.

The Panthers initially listed Stewart's timetable at 1-2 weeks. Stewart has avoided active/PUP, but is likely going to miss at least one preseason game. DeAngelo Williams will continue to handle all first-team carries until Stewart returns.

Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts is expected to miss "several weeks" with a hamstring strain.

The injury forced Shorts from practice on Friday. Injuries have become a bugaboo for Shorts, who missed most of OTAs and all of minicamp with a hamstring injury and has been limited by injuries each of the last two seasons. Shorts should be ready for the start of the season, but it is hard to be confident he will play a full 16 in 2014.

49ers RB Kendall Hunter tore the ACL in his right knee during Friday's practice.

He is done for the season. Even though running back was a position of depth for the 49ers, this injury is a blow to the offense. Rookie Carlos Hyde is now the favorite to back up Frank Gore, and out-of-favor LaMichael James could also see an increase to his workload. Hunter was entering the final year of his rookie deal.

Packers signed WR Jordy Nelson to a four-year, $39 million contract extension.

The deal includes $14.2 million guaranteed and an $11.5 million signing bonus. One of the most underrated wide receivers in the league, Nelson is finally getting paid after accepting a discounted rate from the Packers in 2011. Green Bay will now turn its focus to Randall Cobb, who is also in the final year of his deal. Jordy's extension solidifies his elite WR1 Dynasty value. He's now under the Packers' control through 2018; Aaron Rodgers is signed through 2019.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Vick Ballard suffered a torn Achilles during Friday's training camp practice.

It's terrible news for Ballard, who is now looking at another lost season after missing nearly all of 2013 to ACL surgery. Ballard was carted off the field Friday, and is currently undergoing an MRI. A limited athlete prior to his injuries, it's questionable whether Ballard will ever be able to make it back. The Colts will move forward with Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw as their top running backs. Dan Herron and Chris Rainey will compete for the No. 3 role.

Coach Bruce Arians referred to Andre Ellington as a "bellcow in our offense" as the Cardinals began training camp on Friday.

Arians also confirmed Ellington added offseason weight, believed to be as much as ten pounds. Arians seems adamant about Ellington's capability of handling a spiked workload, though we still wouldn't rule out the possibility of more work than expected for either Stepfan Taylor or Jonathan Dwyer, particularly if Ellington struggles early. We don't see Ellington as a 300-carry back.

Buccaneers released OG Carl Nicks.

After signing him to a five-year, "47.5 million" deal in 2012, the Bucs wound up paying Nicks $25 million for nine games played. Per FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, the sides reached an "amicable settlement," which best translates as an injury settlement. Nicks is dealing with a career-threatening toe injury. Still only 29 years old, his NFL future is in serious doubt, as ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Friday Nicks has decided to "step away from the game," though he has not yet formally retired. Nicks was owed a $7 million base salary. The Bucs now have the weakest depth chart at offensive guard in football, with Oniel Cousins, Patrick Omameh, Jamon Meredith, and rookie Kadeem Edwards competing for two starting spots. It's a major concern for the efficiency of their running game.

Appearing on NFL Insiders Friday, ESPN's Michael DiRocco stated the Jaguars will aim for 20-25 touches per game for Toby Gerhart.

"They want him to be the workhorse back ... get 20-25 touches," DiRocco stated. DiRocco confirmed Gerhart will be involved in both the pass and run games as a true three-down back. Gerhart's ADP is currently in the late third round.

Sources tell the Cleveland Plain Dealer the Browns have been "alarmed" by the off-field actions of Johnny Manziel since trading up to select him with the 22nd overall pick in May's draft.

The Plain Dealer reports the team was particularly bothered by a picture that surfaced of Manziel rolling a $20 bill in a bar bathroom, suggestive of someone preparing to use snort cocaine. "Some in the organization feel he's lost ground in the quarterback competition heading into camp," adds beat reporter Mary Kay Cabot. Manziel reportedly "regressed in practice" this spring, and team brass believes it resulted from "not enough dedication to the playbook." Sources also told Cabot the Browns "have been stunned by his non-stop antics" off the field. All signs continue to point to Brian Hoyer starting Week 1 against the Steelers.
Jul 25 - 2:05 PM

According to ESPN's Bob Holtzman, the "feeling in the locker room" is the Browns will start Brian Hoyer in Week 1.

Holtzman expects coach Mike Pettine to make the announcement "well before" the third preseason game, which is when camp battles are usually decided. In other words, the Browns may have already internally chosen Hoyer over Johnny Manziel. "We're all expecting Hoyer to start," one player told Holtzman. There were murmurs after the draft that the coaching staff didn't want Manziel, and that he was essentially handpicked by owner Jimmy Haslam. Pettine suggested in an ESPN Cleveland interview earlier this week that Manziel could spend his rookie season as a "package quarterback," similar to how Colin Kaepernick opened his career in San Francisco, and how Donovan McNabb did in Philadelphia.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Friday the Titans are still in the process of determining rookie Bishop Sankey's role.

Whiz called Sankey a player "we've got to find out about" in terms of his ability to contribute and workload. Sankey's college track record suggests he can indeed handle lots of carries and be a contributor in the pass game, although that doesn't always result in high-volume NFL success. May pro evaluators viewed Sankey as a change-of-pace type coming out of Washington. In Tennessee, he'll try to separate himself from Dexter McCluster and banged-up Shonn Greene.
