Titans DE Jurrell Casey put on about 10 pounds this offseason.
Casey added the weight in an effort to stand up better against the run. "I had to get a little heavier," Casey said. "I felt like last year I was getting moved a little easier than normal." The Titans surrendered the second most rushing yards per game last season.
Colts offensive line coach Joe Gilbert confirmed Jack Mewhort will open camp as the starting right tackle.
This is not a surprise after the Colts cut Gosder Cherilus earlier this week. Mewhort worked at right tackle throughout the offseason program and should see all the first-team snaps there in training camp.
Saints DE Akiem Hicks lost 20 pounds over the offseason.
Hicks reported to camp at 325 pounds after playing at 345 last season. Hicks recorded just two sacks last season after a breakout five-sack campaign in 2013. The lost weight should help Hicks find the quarterback more consistently this time around.
Browns DL Billy Winn was carted off the practice field Saturday with an apparent right knee injury.
Winn was examined for about five minutes on the sideline before trainers called for the cart. Winn struggled as a rotational lineman last season, but he earned praise from coach Mike Pettine for his work this offseason. The severity of the injury will be updated following practice.
Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount is practicing on Saturday.
Blount was placed on the active/NFI list to start training camp after failing his conditioning test. His appearance in practice on Saturday suggests he passed the second time around. Blount should dominate the Patriots' early-down work once he returns from suspension in Week 2.
Packers TE Andrew Quarless reported for Packers camp on Saturday.
Quarless was arrested for a gun offense in Florida on July 4, but his early absence from camp reportedly involved a family issue. He is the favorite to open the season as the Packers' in-line tight end.
Kelvin Sheppard primarily played as the first-team middle linebacker at Dolphins' camp on Friday.
Despite his lackluster career to this point, the Dolphins seem intent on giving Sheppard a shot to win a starting job. Koa Misi, who looked locked in at middle linebacker throughout the offseason program, opened up camp as the strong-side linebacker, a position he played in 2012 and 13. A third-round pick of the Bills in 2011, Sheppard was released by the Colts at final cuts last season and struggled to find playing time after latching on with the Dolphins in September.
Bears OLB Willie Young avoided the active/PUP list to begin training camp.
Only eight months removed from tearing his Achilles, it is something of a surprise Young avoided the PUP. Young has yet to participate in any team drills, but he should be good to go soon. A standout at 4-3 defensive end last season, Young will be asked to move to outside linebacker in the Bears' new 3-4 scheme.
