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 Dolphin's 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.

Packers placed OLB Nick Perry on the active/PUP list.

Perry and DE/OLB Mike Neal both failed their pre-camp physicals. Neal's inclusion is a surprise after he was a full-participant throughout OTAs, while Perry missed the entire offseason program with an undisclosed injury. A 2012 first-round pick, Perry has missed 15 of 32 possible regular season games.
Jul 25 - 5:56 PM

Packers placed DL Letroy Guion on the active/NFI list.

Joining him there will be Jerel Worthy and rookie WR Jeff Janis. None of the injuries are considered serious. Guion was signed to a one-year, $985,000 deal this offseason and will compete for playing time in sub-packages.

Chargers teammates have nicknamed seventh-round WR Tevin Reese "Sweet Feet" for his speed and acceleration.

"Kid can smoke," observed backup QB Kellen Clemens. Reese stands just 5-foot-10, 163, but ran 4.46 at the Combine with a 41-inch vertical. "That's how DeSean Jackson was -- little and fast," said WR Malcom Floyd. "He shocked the NFL." Reese is competing for one of San Diego's final wide receiver spots.

Steelers placed FS Mike Mitchell (groin) on the active/PUP list.

Mitchell is considered day to day and shouldn't miss much time during camp. Signed to to a five-year, $25 million contract in March, Mitchell will start opposite Troy Polamalu when healthy.
Jul 25 - 5:28 PM

Cardinals FS Tyrann Mathieu (knee) said he's still "at least a month away."

Mathieu believes he's 6-8 weeks from returning. That would put him on track to be cleared no later than Week 3, though coach Bruce Arians has conservatively listed Mathieu's return as October 1 (Week 5). Mathieu was placed on active/PUP for the start of camp and can be activated at any time.
