A source close to the situation told ESPN's Dan Graziano the Giants would be "very surprised" if David Wilson (neck) played for them again.

Graziano is essentially confirming a previous NJ.com report that Wilson "needs a miracle" to continue his playing career. Wilson will be re-checked by his surgeon on Monday after suffering a neck burner on the heels of spinal fusion surgery. "As soon as I saw him walk off the field, I started to hurt," said Giants starting RB Rashad Jennings. "Someone who's been working as hard as he has to get back on the field, when he has a little setback, it's frustrating as a friend, a brother and a teammate."

Jets first-round SS Calvin Pryor (concussion) has been cleared for physical activity.

He's not yet cleared for contact, but is trending in the right direction. Pryor is a rookie to monitor in IDP leagues. He'll play an attacking role under coach Rex Ryan as a tone setter operating close to the line of scrimmage.

Seahawks DT Jesse Williams' knee injury is "potentially serious," and could require surgery.

Williams was carted off the practice field on Wednesday. It's extremely bad news for a player who has battled knee issues since college. Coach Pete Carroll feared Williams was "done" after last season. Batting for a reserve spot, Williams' 2014 outlook is dismal.

Jets OC Marty Mornhinweg says Stephen Hill has looked "outstanding" in training camp.

"Wow, he's taken a huge jump," Mornhinweg added. Lighting up practice is par for the course for the 2012 second-rounder. It's staying healthy and translating that ability to games that has thus far eluded him. Either way, we'd rather hear positive Hill updates than negative ones. Despite Hill's theoretical upside, it's hard to see him making a reliable re-draft impact.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Browns' "best-case scenario" at quarterback is Brian Hoyer winning the starting job and Johnny Manziel featuring in a change-of-pace package.

The Browns are thinking small after Hoyer showed reasonably well in three starts last season, and Manziel irritated with his offseason antics. It's a decidedly Jets-esque plan, one that would be certain to cause consternation amongst teammates and fans. If the Browns indeed go with Hoyer — who is 28 and has made four career starts — for Week 1, they'd be best off leaving Manziel on the bench to learn rather than coming in to interrupt game flow with gimmick plays.

Falcons DT Peria Jerry is retiring from football.

The No. 24 overall pick of the 2009 draft, Jerry hangs up his cleats as a bust. He was competing for a reserve role in Falcons camp. Jerry is actually coming off a career year, but his "career year" constituted just 3.5 sacks across 14 starts. Jerry retires the owner of only 5.5 quarterback takedowns across 64 games. He turns 30 next month.

ESPN reports Marshawn Lynch is ending his holdout, and will report to Seahawks camp in the next 24 hours.

Lynch's ill-fated holdout is over after less than a week. The only "concession" he'll receive from the Seahawks is likely the forgiveness of his nearly $500,000 in fines. Going by how half-hearted and ill-conceived Lynch's holdout was, it's quite possible he simply wanted an extra week's vacation. Although Lynch is expected to lose work to talented backup Christine Michael this season, he remains in the RB1 conversation. He shouldn't slip past the teens in drafts.

LeSean McCoy reported to camp 5-7 pounds lighter.

Shady said he feels "much more explosive," and "wanted to do it for (Chip Kelly's) offense." Standing in at 5-foot-11, McCoy still tips the scales at over 200 pounds. He's fantasy's No. 1 overall player this season.

Patriots fourth-round RB James White took goal-line reps in Thursday's practice.

It's a few reps in only one practice, but it's clear coach Bill Belichick was serious when he talked up White as a three-down talent. White should be given every opportunity to beat out Brandon Bolden for No. 3 duties, which would give him vulture appeal behind fumbler Stevan Ridley.

Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne is dealing with tendinitis in his right knee, but is expected to return to practice on Saturday.

It's not the sort of injury we'd usually blurb up in training camp, but any ailment is noteworthy with Claiborne, who has proven exceedingly brittle since being the No. 6 overall pick of the 2012 draft. Claiborne was limited throughout OTAs as he recovered from shoulder surgery, and missed time last summer with knee issues. He was limited to 10 games in 2013, and at one point benched. He's on the spot in a big way this season.
Jul 31 - 2:39 PM

Cowboys activated OG Ronald Leary (hamstring) from the active/PUP list.

He's now free to compete with Uche Nwaneri and Mackenzy Bernadeau at left guard. Leary is the strong favorite after making 16 starts a season ago.
Jul 31 - 2:26 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the Bengals have reached an "impasse" in long-term talks with WLB Vontaze Burfict.

Burfict will be a restricted free agent next offseason. The Bengals are hoping to get him locked up in a cost-effective manner after striking gold on the 2012 undrafted free agent market. If a deal can't be reached, the first-round RFA tender would cost the Bengals approximately $3.3 million in 2015.

The 49ers have compared second-round RB Carlos Hyde's work ethic and understanding of the game to Frank Gore's.

"Carlos gets football, understands football," coach Jim Harbaugh said, paraphrasing OC Greg Roman. "It’s natural for him to understand the game, similar to Frank Gore. And we're seeing those things, and both are very good signs and bode well for us." Harbaugh has always been the rah-rah type, but it's a lofty comparison for him to make. The Niners clearly have faith in Hyde as Gore's backup. He's looking like a strong fantasy pick at his 10th-round ADP.

Speaking Thursday, Jaguars OC Jedd Fisch said Blake Bortles arrived at camp "ahead of where I thought he was going to be."

Fisch was impressed with the progress Bortles made between June minicamp and now. "One of the things that you ask of him is to come in here and not just start from Day 1 again," Fisch said. "What he showed me is that it wasn't just what he recalled, but he actually dug deeper into the plays. ... That's something he was able to take from the four weeks prior." Despite Fisch's comments, the Jags still have every intention of redshirting Bortles this season.

Tandon Doss was carted off with an ankle injury in Thursday's practice, but has avoided a break.

Doss will likely be diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain on Friday. He should be considered week to week. The No. 5 receiver, Doss is expected to open the season as the Jags' primary punt returner due to the suspension of Ace Sanders. He has no fantasy value.
