Seahawks coach Pete Carroll commented on Marshawn Lynch's holdout Tuesday.

"I love this kid," Carroll said. "I hope he will figure it out and it will all make sense and it will come to a resolution somewhere." Carroll's relatively soft comments suggest the Seahawks may be willing to throw their running back a contract bone, but it almost certainly wouldn't be anything more than a symbolic gesture. Whatever the end game is, we fully expect Lynch to report before Week 1.

Yahoo's Rand Getlin reports the Cardinals are "close" to an extension with Patrick Peterson.

ESPN reported in May that the sides were discussing a deal worth more than $60 million. Peterson has a shot at becoming the league's highest-paid cornerback, though we doubt he's able to top Richard Sherman's $40 million guaranteed.

David Wilson will undergo tests after suffering a neck "burner" in Tuesday's practice.

NFL Network's Kimberly Jones reports the Giants "will be careful" with Wilson, which is probably the understatement of the century. It's extremely bad news for Wilson to be having any issues with his surgically-repaired neck so shortly after being cleared. If you're drafting early, take a late-round flier on Wilson at your own risk.

Seahawks TE Anthony McCoy was carted off the field with a right Achilles' injury Tuesday.

It's believed to be torn. McCoy tore his opposite Achilles' last May and missed the season. He's missed 30 games due to injury since being drafted in 2010. McCoy was the favorite for No. 3 tight end duties behind Zach Miller and Luke Willson.

Colts signed RB Phillip Tanner.

With Vick Ballard tearing his Achilles', Trent Richardson nursing a sore hamstring, and freshly-signed RB Davin Meggett going down in practice, the Colts needed depth behind Ahmad Bradshaw. Tanner, 26 next month, has 56 career carries for 149 yards (2.7 YPC) and two scores. He'll compete for a spot.

Arian Foster is sidelined at Texans camp with what is believed to be a hamstring injury.

Although the Texans insist Foster's injury is "minor," it's pretty troubling he's already missing time after battling hamstring woes over the years. "He’s dealing with something," coach Bill O’Brien said. "He’ll be fine. He’ll be back. It’s a minor deal. You know, it’s a long season. He’ll be out there."

David Wilson left Tuesday's training camp practice early with a neck burner.

A "burner" or "stinger" is an injury to the nerves in the neck or shoulder that produce a stinging sensation. Obviously, with Wilson, this is a major concern and not something to take lightly. Following practice, coach Tom Coughlin said "we were all praying" Wilson wouldn't suffer any setbacks. This qualifies as one. Recovery time can range, but WIlson won't be cleared to return until he's experiencing zero neck pain. We'll update Wilson when the Giants do.

According to the Palm Beach Post, undrafted rookie TE Gator Hoskins has "emerged" at camp and the team may be forced to keep him.

Coach Joe Philbin said he'll likely keep three-to-five tight ends. Charles Clay sits atop the depth chart, while the remainder of the pecking order is unsettled. Others in the mix are Michael Egnew, Dion Sims, and rookie Arthur Lynch. Egnew's spot is likely in the most danger, as he hasn't done much of anything in his two seasons. Hoskins is a "move" tight end and is worth monitoring in deeper Dynasty leagues with Charles Clay in the final year of his contract.

Cardinals C Lyle Sendlein will be sidelined three weeks with a calf injury.

Ted Larsen will handle pivot duties while he's out. If Sendlein's injury lingers into the season, second-year LG Jonathan Cooper has experience at center. Paul Fanaika and Earl Watford could then man the guard spots. Sendlein is a strong run blocker and has started all 16 games in five of the past six seasons.

A source informed Profootballtalk that suspended WR Josh Gordon's failed drug test barely generated a positive, and it would have been a negative had luck been on Gordon's side.

Gordon was summoned for a urine sample. Those samples are split into two bottles, one marked "A" and the other "B." It's completely random which one is marked "A" and which is labeled "B." "A" is tested first, and if it generates a positive test, then "B" is tested. The limit is 15 nanograms-per-milliliter. Gordon's "A" bottle showed a concentration of 16 ng/ml, while his "B" registered a 13.6 ng/ml. The result was a failed test. If urine sample handlers would have by chance marked the "A" bottle "B" and the "B" bottle "A," then Gordon would be free to play. Gordon is appealing the ban, and his hearing will be held on Friday. There seems to be a decent chance he wins.

Giants MLB Jon Beason (foot) was seen sprinting on a treadmill off to the side of training camp practice Tuesday.

Beason is just six weeks into his 12-week timetable, but appears to be making substantial progress. He wants to play in preseason games. We doubt the Giants will push him out there for meaningless exhibition snaps, but Beason sounds like he's on track for the opener. He remains on the active/PUP list.

The Washington Post leaves the door open for the Redskins to possibly cut third-round OT Morgan Moses.

Beat writer Mike Jones does write that it would be "hard to see them giving up on a third-round pick this quickly." But Moses is having trouble adjusting to the speed and strength of NFL pass rushers. Tom Compton has outplayed Moses as the No. 3 tackle behind starters LT Trent Williams and RT Tyler Polumbus. Moses' name was brought up as a potential first- or second-rounder before going 66th overall to Washington. He may be a weekly scratch in year one.

Lions GM Martin Mayhew said the team's "expecting a good performance" from second-year CB Darius Slay this season.

Mayhew has put all his eggs in Slay's basket after not drafting a cornerback high and releasing "top" CB Chris Houston last month. Slay is atop the depth chart after an up-and-down rookie season. He'll be bookended by soon-to-be 34-year-old Rashean Mathis. The Lions are really going to need a lot out of their pass rush to help mask potential secondary problems.

Mike Leshoure reported to training camp at 242 pounds.

Leshoure played at 227 two seasons ago when he led the Lions in rushing, and was at 233 last year. He's always been a big back, but 242 is awfully heavy. Considering Leshoure was never overly explosive, the weight gain isn't a positive in our eyes. The Lions don't seem concerned. Coach Jim Caldwell believes Leshoure is in "very good shape." Leshoure's ticketed for No. 4 duties.

Packers undrafted rookie TE Colt Lyerla was relegated to the scout team on the third day of training camp.

Lyerla is at the bottom of the depth chart in a group that includes seven tight ends. The good news for Lyerla is that the tight end spot in Green Bay is the most wide-open position on the team. Lyerla has all the measurables and talent to make a quick climb once the pads come on and preseason games get under way. It's a reminder that Lyerla is a classic boom-or-bust prospect.
