NFL Training Camp Roundup for July 31st

By: The Football Girl | Posted: July 31, 2012

Starting today, I will give you a quick hit blast of training camp news and notes from around the league.  Look for updates every morning. 

New York Giants

 CB Terrell Thomas appears likely to miss the 2012 season after tearing his ACL again.  He missed all of last season after tearing his ACL last August.  This is obviously devastating, career threatening news for the young corner.

Minnesota Vikings  

RB Adrian Peterson was rushed to the hospital after a bad seafood reaction. He is back at the facility and appears to be fine. (The Vikings’ official caterer is not.)

Green Bay Packers

Former Saints DE turned Eagle-turned-Seahawk-and now turned Packer Anthony Hargrove says that Aaron Rodgers is better than Drew Brees.  Hargrove is famous for his role in the Saints bounty scandal, for which he is suspended the first eight games of the season.

Arizona Cardinals

QB Kevin Kolb left practice yesterday with a bruised thigh. The extent of the injury should be known today. The Cardinals play the Saints in Sunday’s Hall of Fame Game.

Philadelphia Eagles

WR Ron Johnson suffered a dislocated right ankle and fracture. It was a gruesome injury that will likely keep Johnson, mainly a practice squad guy, out for some time.

Baltimore Ravens

OT Bryant McKinnie finally showed up the Ravens camp, although he has yet to participate in practice. McKinnie attributed his late arrival to a strained back muscle, an injury he apparently suffered at home.

Dallas Cowboys

RB Felix Jones, and two others, failed their conditioning tests Sunday and are unable to practice until passing.  (Perhaps Jones should partake in some of AP’s seafood.)

CB Mike Jenkins still needs clearance to practice after shoulder surgery. May not be ready for opener.

Indianapolis Colts

DE Dwight Freeney is adjusting to his slightly altered role in the Colts’ new 3-4 defense. Freeney, a long time defensive end who is the team’s all-time leader in sacks, will sometimes line up at outside linebacker in the new system.

Miami Dolphins

QB Ryan Tannehill impressing coaches, fans.  Also, teammates are jokingly calling Tannehill “The Franchise” or “The Golden Child” since he missed he first two days of camp due to his contract not being signed.  We will see a lot ore of the rookie when “Hard Knocks” debuts next Tuesday at 10 PM on HBO.
