Mark Sanchez opened Eagles' camp as the No. 2 quarterback.

Sanchez is "competing" with Matt Barkley for the No. 2 role, but he is a heavy favorite to open the season as the backup. Neither quarterback will threaten Nick Foles' starting spot.

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.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell reiterated the team wants to sign Cecil Shorts long term.

Shorts is entering a contract season. "I’ve been in communication with his agent and we’ve had good talks," Caldwell said. "We’re trying to find a happy ground with what’s best for Cecil and what’s best for us. We obviously would like him here for the long term." In June, the Florida Times Union suggested Shorts could command Doug Baldwin money. Baldwin has a three-year, $13 million deal.

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.

Rookie OT Taylor Lewan saw some time at left guard during Titans practice.

With Andy Levitre recovering from an appendectomy, the Titans mixed and matched at left guard all practice. The Titans getting Lewan work at guard could be an indication they see him as a reserve option this season. Michael Roos and Michael Oher are currently penciled in as the Tennessee's starting tackles.

Bears signed C/G Dylan Gandy.

The journeyman interior reserve will provide practice depth.
Jul 26 - 12:16 PM

The 49ers reportedly fear Kendall Hunter's knee injury could be "significant."

He went down in Friday's practice. The 49ers are awaiting MRI results. If Hunter misses much time, rookie Carlos Hyde would come into more opportunity.

Chiefs TE Sean McGrath has decided to retire from the NFL.

After latching on with Seattle as an undrafted free agent in 2012, McGrath played 16 games for the Chiefs last season, notching 26 catches for 302 yards and two touchdowns. At only 26 and not dealing with any reported injuries, it appears McGrath's heart was no longer in football.

Browns WR/PR Travis Benjamin (knee) is participating in training camp.

He's recovered from last year's ACL tear. Benjamin is a 4.3s speedster who will return punts for Cleveland, and try to earn a sub-package role on offense.

Browns WR Charles Johnson (knee) is participating in training camp.

Johnson missed all pre-camp activities, but has been medically cleared. With top-notch measurables, Johnson is an attractive sleeper in Dynasty leagues.

Coach Pete Carroll indicated the Seahawks have no intention of satisfying Marshawn Lynch's contract demands.

It's not even entirely clear what Lynch's demands are, but he's skipping training camp and wants more money. "Just a couple of years back we made a big statement and made a big effort for him and we wish that he was with us now," said Carroll, referring to the four-year, $31 million deal Lynch signed in March of 2012. "But this is a tremendous opportunity for the guys getting their shot. Robert Turbin and Christine Michael, they're ready to go and really fired up about this opportunity and are going to try and take full advantage of it."

Recently signed CB Kamaal McIlwain has stood out at Bills' camp.

According to WGR 550's Joe Buscaglia, McIlwain has "consistently played physically" and shown good awareness. Undrafted out of Newberry in 2011, McIlwain has spent time with Carolina and Kansas City in his career, but has yet to log a snap. He has a chance to crack the Bills' 53-man roster if his stellar play continues.

Former Falcons WR Darius Johnson was arrested for DUI on Thursday.

Johnson was released by the Falcons on Friday, but the team refused to say if the arrest played any part. "I’m not going to comment on the reason that Darius was released," coach Mike Smith said. "We never do. There was a transaction that we put in today and he is no longer a member of our team." A diminutive, speed-deficient prospect, Johnson may have trouble latching on elsewhere.

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.

Titans LB Zach Brown opened camp as the starting inside 'backer next to Wesley Woodyard.

After being benched down the stretch last season, a new coaching staff and a new defense have given Brown a fresh start. He is a great fit at inside linebacker in new DC Ray Horton's defense, with the speed and athleticism to play sideline to sideline.
