Cardinals coach Bruce Arians confirmed Evan Boehm will start at right guard.

Boehm appeared in all 16 games as a 2016 rookie but made only one start. He’ll take over for Evan Mathis, with fourth rounder Dorian Johnson likely to back him up. Boehm graded poorly on 122 snaps at PFF last year, but the Cardinals are counting on a second-year leap.

Vikings WR Jarius Wright is on the roster bubble.

Wright is entering his third season of a four-year, $15.5 million extension signed in 2015. He was active for just eight games last year, playing under 12 percent of snaps. Wright isn't needed after the Vikings added Michael Floyd and late-rounders Rodney Adams and Stacy Coley. Releasing Wright would save $2.6M.

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey will have his surgically repaired hip examined next week.

Pouncey is hoping to be cleared for training camp, but may be placed on active/PUP regardless. The Dolphins aren't taking any chances after Pouncey missed all but five games last year. Pouncey is doubtful to get many preseason reps, but remains on track for Week 1.

Dez Bryant missed the Cowboys' conditoning test on Friday.

Bryant showed up to training camp three hours late. He's reportedly dealing with a sinus infection and headaches, but is otherwise healthy. This should be a non-issue moving forward.

Cardinals ILB Deone Bucannon (ankle) will open training camp on the active/PUP list.

This was fully expected with Bucannon recovering from May surgery. Bucannon is a candidate to open the year on reserve/PUP, but coach Bruce Arians is "hopeful" he'll be ready Week 1. First-rounder Haason Reddick has been repping with the starters in Bucannon's place.

Texans rookie RB D'Onta Foreman tested negative for marijuana.

Foreman was arrested for marijuana possession and unlawful carrying of a weapon in Austin last Sunday. His attorney has been trying to clear his name since, though this doesn't change much in his legal situation. Foreman has been trending in the wrong direction after reporting to rookie camp out of shape. He'll enter training camp behind Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue.

Former NFL WR Plaxico Burress has joined the Cardinals as a coaching intern.

Arizona has gained a reputation for providing coaching opportunities to former players including Byron Leftwich, who interned with the Cardinals before becoming the team's QBs coach. Burress also has history with coach Bruce Arians, who served as his position coach in Pittsburgh back in 2004. The 39-year-old should be a good resource for young receivers like rookie Chad Williams.

Bengals CB William Jackson III said he's fully recovered from the torn pectoral that cost him his rookie season.

"I'm great. I'm ready to get going," Jackson said Friday at his youth football camp in Houston. The 24-year-old was a second-team All-AAC selection at the University of Houston before the Bengals took him 24th overall in last year's draft. He'll begin his career as a backup to starters Adam Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick.

According to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, it's "unclear" if Eddie Lacy (ankle) will be 100 percent for the start of training camp.

Lacy was limited at OTAs while recovering from ankle surgery and that might still be the case when camp opens on July 30. The 27-year-old is hoping for a fresh start in Seattle after his last two seasons in Green Bay were derailed by injuries and ineffectiveness brought on by weight struggles. Thomas Rawls will be his biggest threat for early-down work.

ESPN's Alden Gonzalez left WR Mike Thomas off his 53-man roster projection for the Rams.

Gonzalez said he originally had Thomas making the team but after being hit with a four-game PED suspension, Gonzalez now sees him on the outside looking in. Thomas played sparingly last year (102 offensive snaps) and now faces competition from rookie wideouts Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds. Gonzalez expects seven receivers to crack the Rams' roster including Kupp, Reynolds, Tavon Austin, Robert Woods, Pharoh Cooper, Bradley Marquez and Nelson Spruce.

Free agent Ronnie Hillman worked out for the Cowboys on Thursday.

He was joined by ex-Jaguars running back Denard Robinson. The Cowboys are looking to stock their backfield in case of an Ezekiel Elliott suspension, which has now become a foregone conclusion. Hillman bounced around the league last season, making stops in San Diego and Minnesota after being dropped by Denver at the end of training camp. Hillman would give Dallas some backfield depth behind Elliott and Darren McFadden.

Ravens placed CB Tavon Young (knee) on the PUP list.

It's just a formality as Young has already been ruled out for all of 2017 with a torn ACL. The former Temple Owl earned PFF's No. 24 cornerback grade out of 119 qualifiers as a rookie last season.
Jul 21 - 2:48 PM

Ravens placed WR Michael Campanaro (toe) on the PUP list.

The 26-year-old has been slow to recover from a sprained toe despite assurances from coach John Harbaugh that it's only a minor injury. Campanaro wasn't targeted in his 17 offensive snaps last season.
Jul 21 - 2:44 PM

Ravens signed WR Griff Whalen.

Most famous for botching a ludicrously ill-advised swinging gate play against the Patriots two years ago, the 27-year-old journeyman will join his fifth NFL team in six seasons. A fringe player who sees most of his snaps on special teams, Whalen isn't a lock to make Baltimore's 53-man roster.
Jul 21 - 2:34 PM

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports free agent Anquan Boldin will visit the Bills on Monday.

Boldin had planned to sign with a team just prior to training camp and it looks like he'll have a chance to do just that. The Bills are thin at receiver outside of injury-prone Sammy Watkins and pursued Jeremy Maclin and Eric Decker before those players signed elsewhere last month. Boldin has a history with Tyrod Taylor, who was his teammate in Baltimore for two seasons. Entering his age-37 season, Boldin isn't as explosive as he was early in his career but he's still a savvy possession receiver with a nose for the end zone. He pulled in 67 catches for 594 yards and a team-high eight touchdowns with the Lions last season.
