49ers Kendall Hunter suffered a leg injury during Friday's practice.

The severity of the injury is unknown, but ESPN's Ed Werder reported the 49ers "didn't like the way it looked" and are "concerned." Hunter will likely get an MRI today to assess the severity of the injury. Rookie Carlos Hyde would step into the No. 2 role if Hunter is forced to miss any time.

Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson missed the team's first practice with a foot injury.

ESPN Vikings reporter Ben Goessling said the injury will keep Patterson out "a couple days." Patterson needs all the practice time he can get as he tries to refine his dynamic raw abilities into an elite wide receiver package. He has a ton of upside, but is being over-drafted as the No. 15 wide receiver off the board in fantasy drafts.

No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney is participating in the first day of Texans' camp.

There was some concern offseason sports hernia surgery would keep Clowney from participating early in camp, but he avoided the active/PUP list and is in uniform for the first practice. The Texans will likely ease Clowney in, but there is no concern about his status moving forward.

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim said rookie OT Morgan Moses has struggled early in training camp.

Keim cautioned "it will take Moses time" to develop into a starting caliber tackle. Many thought Moses would push incumbent RT Tyler Polumbus for the starting job this year, but it has become clear he has a lot of developing to do. He will likely spend his rookie season as a reserve, but Moses could push for snaps in 2015.

Redskins DE Stephen Bowen (knee) said he is optimistic he will be cleared to practice sometime in the next two weeks.

The Redskins showed faith in Bowen's recovery by placing him on the active/PUP list instead of cutting him and his $7 million cap charge. Bowen is currently penciled in as the Washington's No. 4 end behind Jason Hatcher, Chris Baker, and top reserve Jarvis Jenkins.

Saints WR Kenny Stills is not practicing on Saturday after suffering a quad injury in Friday's practice.

Coach Sean Payton said Stills had felt similar tightness in the quad two weeks before. The injury seems minor, but there is no timetable for his return. Stills is expected to fill the No. 2 receiver role vacated by Lance Moore this season.

The Newark Star-Ledger's Jordan Raanan said Giants QB Ryan Nassib's "was a train wreck during Friday's practice."

"One 8-yard throw to the far side probably missed his receiver by eight yards," Raanan said. "Nassib needs to get it together." The Giants will give every opportunity to a player they spent a fourth-round pick on just one year ago, but Nassib may not have the talent to take advantage. With New York traditionally only keeping two quarterbacks, Nassib is staring into the very real possibility he is cut.

The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley said the Dolphins' top three receivers are Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, and Brandon Gibson, and he does not "envision that changing."

Coming off a patellar tendon injury, there has been talk all offseason Gibson would cede his slot job to either Rishard Matthews or rookie Jarvis Landry. Beasley does not see that scenario playing out with Gibson now healthy and working at full speed. Gibson posted a 30-326-3 line in only seven games last season.

Giants MLB Jon Beason (foot) expects to participate in preseason games.

"I would hope so," Beason said. "Based on how I feel, the way things are going. We want to be smart about it. Obviously I’m going to do what they tell me." Beason is just six weeks into his 12-week timetable, but believes he's ahead of schedule. He opened training camp on active/PUP and is currently limited to running on an underwater treadmill. Beason remains questionable for Week 1.

Rams signed DE/LB Kourtnei Brown.

A 2012 undrafted free agent, Brown was waived by the Lions in May. He spent time with the 49ers and Washington last season, but has yet to appear in an NFL game. 26-year-old Brown is a long shot to survive final cuts.

Leonard Hankerson (knee, active/PUP) has been cleared for a running program.

Hankerson missed Washington's offseason program and doesn't have a set timetable to return. It remains possible that he opens 2014 on reserve/PUP. Hankerson is eight months removed from November ACL surgery.

Bills coach Doug Marrone told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport he believes seventh-round LT Seantrel Henderson "can be special."

A former top high school recruit, Henderson had an up-and-down career at Miami and fell to the seventh round due to character issues. With Cordy Glenn's (illness, NFI) health status up in the air, he's a candidate to be the Bills' Week 1 starter. Henderson is making a case to be Buffalo's left tackle of the future, with Glenn eventually moving to guard.

The Chiefs have used several formations with Jamaal Charles, Knile Davis and rookie De’Anthony Thomas on the field together during training camp.

The Chiefs are looking for ways to get Davis and Thomas involved without having to remove Charles. In theory, all three players on the field could give Kansas City their best personnel group, but it's unlikely that it would be more than as a wrinkle to the offense. The Chiefs are expected to use two tight-end sets with Travis Kelce to compensate for their lack of a true No. 2 option behind Dwayne Bowe.

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.

49ers activated WR Bruce Ellington from the NFI list.

Ellington missed the start of camp with a minor ankle injury. Now that he's cleared, he'll compete for snaps in four-wide sets behind Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin and Steve Johnson. Third-round C Marcus Martin is also expected to return soon.
