Rookie Andre Williams has struggled in the passing game early at Giants camp.

Observers of Williams at Boston College and the Combine could've predicted this; he can't catch a cold. Per beat writer Jordan Raanan, Williams "completely missed" a swing pass in Thursday's practice, later dropping an easy screen in 11-on-11s and catching one ball "with his facemask." Williams has continued to work with the starting goal-line offense, but has obvious pass-game limitations.

Patriots NT Vince Wilfork (Achilles') is practicing without restriction.

Wilfork will likely he held out of some 11-on-11s, but he's full steam ahead for Week 1. That being said, we'd expect him to see very limited action in the preseason. There's simply no reason for the Patriots to take the risk.

Through four days of Bills training camp, first-round pick Sammy Watkins has "continued to dazzle ... even burning top cornerback Stephon Gilmore quite easily on a few occasions."

WGR 550 Buffalo's Joe Buscaglia is doing daily practice reports live from Bills camp, and on two of the first four days Buscaglia has named Watkins the MVP of workouts. While Watkins is undoubtedly an exciting talent, we remain skeptical he'll live up to his mid-seventh-round fantasy Average Draft Position with suspect quarterback play on the NFL's run-heaviest team. Sammy is being drafted before Golden Tate, Kendall Wright, Reggie Wayne, and Eric Decker.

Saints WR Joe Morgan (ACL) is "a go" for training camp.

The word comes straight from coach Sean Payton. Morgan went down last August. He'll compete for a role as a situational deep threat in the Saints' crowded receiver corps.

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports suspended WR Josh Gordon checked into rehab following his arrest for DWI earlier this month.

It's a much-needed step for a player who's going to miss the entire 2014 season as he serves a suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Gordon will report to Browns camp on Friday, though his year-long ban is expected to become official following his August 1 appeal hearing.

Titans LG Andy Levitre underwent an appendectomy on Thursday, and will be sidelined two weeks.

In a vacuum, it's a minor issue, but it sets Levitre further behind after he missed the Titans' entire offseason program as he recovered from hip surgery. He'll be up against it to get in shape for Week 1. That being said, Levitre has yet to miss a game since being the No. 51 overall pick of the 2009 draft. He should be ready for the opener.

Bengals P Kevin Huber (broken jaw, cracked vertebrae) has been cleared for training camp.

Huber is over the massive hit from Steelers LB Terence Garvin that ended his 2013. Huber has been the Bengals' punter since 2009, and was eighth in net-punting average last season (40.5 yards).
Jul 24 - 6:01 PM

Bengals waived P T.J. Conley.

With Kevin Huber (jaw, vertebrae) healthy, Conley was no longer needed. Conley hasn't punted in a regular-season game since 2011.

Bills activated DT Alan Branch from the active/NFI list.

He's passed his conditioning test. Branch returns as one of the Bills' primary run stuffers.
Jul 24 - 5:54 PM

Dolphins placed RB Knowshon Moreno (knee scope) and C Mike Pouncey (hip surgery) on the active/PUP list.

Speaking Thursday, coach Joe Philbin said Moreno was expected to go "full throttle" before "too long." He could be activated within the week. Pouncey is expected to miss all of camp, and could revert to the reserve/PUP list, which would cost him the first six games of the regular season.
Jul 24 - 5:50 PM

Bills activated DT Marcell Dareus from the active/PUP list.

Dareus has passed his conditioning test after showing up to camp out of shape. It shows a lack of professionalism, but isn't a concern for Dareus' 2014 status. Dareus is emerging as one of the league's better defensive linemen.
Jul 24 - 5:47 PM

Raiders DT Antonio Smith (undisclosed surgery) has been cleared for training camp.

Smith was injured in a May weight-room "mishap," the extent of which the Raiders never revealed. He'll start at defensive tackle this season.
Jul 24 - 5:22 PM

Raiders placed OG Lucas Nix (knee surgery) on the active/PUP list.

He's week to week after undergoing a scope in June. Nix is not in the mix for a starting job.
Jul 24 - 5:05 PM

Jamaal Charles' new contract includes no guaranteed money beyond 2014.

So that means Charles' "four-year, $28 million contract" is really a one-year, $8.3 million commitment. It's still a huge raise for a player who was set to earn only $3.9 million, but just the latest reminder that the vast majority of the league's players are on year-to-year deals. Charles can earn up to $6.45 million between salary and bonuses in 2015. It's highly unlikely he's cut next offseason.
Jul 24 - 4:26 PM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Lions are "not optimistic" about agreeing to an extension with Ndamukong Suh before the season.

That's bad news, as Suh's $22.412 million cap number means he'd cost $26.7 million to franchise tag next offseason. One of the league's most dominant players, Suh holds all the cards in long-term talks.
