NFL training camp roundup: Checking in on all 32 teams

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Most of the NFL was in camp on Tuesday, so we're taking a look at what went down in practice.

Nine teams gave players the day off on Tuesday, making for a bit of a slow day around the league, or at least as slow of a day as there is in training camp. It was also a relatively slow day for injuries, despite more and more teams putting on pads for practice.

Here is a look at the latest from all 32 teams.

AFC East

Buffalo Bills - E.J. Manuel is off to a hot start in Bills camp, where Kevin Kolb is still taking the bulk of the first team snaps, but the rookie is gaining ground in the battle for the starting job. Tuesday brought more strong play from Manuel, along with more struggles from Kolb, but the big news was on the defensive side of the ball, where Mario Williams was missing yet again. His sore foot has kept him out of camp thus far, and with no details on his status, the media has begun asking questions. As Buffalo Rumblings noted, head coach Doug Marrone has not taken the questions well.

Miami Dolphins - The Dolphins did not practice on Tuesday.

New England Patriots - In case anyone was still curious, Tim Tebow will be a quarterback with the Patriots. He has taken almost every single one of his training camp snaps at the position, and Tuesday was no different. Meanwhile, Josh McDaniels is trying to mold a young receiving corps.

New York Jets - The Jets did not practice on Tuesday.

AFC South

Houston Texans - The Texans added some linebacker depth by signing Joe Mays. Houston did get good injury news, as Arian Foster nears a return from his calf injury, and Ed Reed spoke to the media for the first time all camp, saying he was "feeling really good." On the field, T.J. Yates' job as backup quarterback is in jeopardy with Case Keenum continuing to shine.

Indianapolis Colts - The Colts suffered their first major injury of camp when Khaled Holmes went down with an apparent right leg injury. He had to be carted off the field, but there is no word on the severity of the injury yet. Ahmad Bradshaw hasn't participated in camp yet, but he said he expects to be back in two weeks. The Colts did get a bit of good news as Josh McNary joined the team. C.O. Prime was waived to make room for him. Tuesday marked the first day the Colts practiced with pads, which gives them their first real chance to work on improving their running game.

Jacksonville Jaguars - Tyson Alualu's transition from defensive tackle to end continues to go well. He was fantastic again on Tuesday and told Big Cat Country that he's happy to be at end again. On the offensive side of the ball, Denard Robinson shined in the Wildcat, giving himself a boost after the college QB and NFL wide receiver/running back struggled the last few days. Jonathan Cyprien is still out of practice with a hamstring injury, but he shouldn't be too far behind when he returns.

Tennessee Titans - Defensive coordinator Jerry Gray thinks this will be a breakout season for Akeem Ayers.

AFC North

Baltimore Ravens - The Ravens did not practice on Tuesday.

Cincinnati Bengals - The Bengals did not practice on Tuesday.

Cleveland Browns - The Browns did not practice on Tuesday.

Pittsburgh Steelers - The Steelers did not practice on Tuesday.

AFC West

Denver Broncos - The Broncos did not practice on Tuesday.

Kansas City Chiefs - Kansas City was dealt a scare when Dwayne Bowe was carted away from practice, but it was just cramps and he should be fine. Cyrus Gray, Colin Kelly and Mike Catapano all suffered injuries too, while Jeff Allen returned to practice. The team was back in pads on Tuesday, and Andy Reid thought they tackled well.

Oakland Raiders - Matt Flynn continues to impress, and right now it's tough to imagine anyone else starting at quarterback in Week 1. Whether he has any tight ends to throw to remains to be seen, as the position continues to bring up more questions than answers. Tyvon Branch had the play of practice with a great interception.

San Diego Chargers - The Chargers did not practice on Tuesday.

NFC East

Dallas Cowboys - Dallas focused on running short-yardage and goal-line plays for the first time in training camp on Tuesday. The results were ... mixed. The first-team offense went 0-for-3 in goal-line plays, and apparently linebacker Sean Lee was very fired up at the defense's success. Lee is among the best inside linebackers in the league. The second-team offense, on the other hand, went 3-for-3 on goal-line plays. Also, Barry Church returned and practiced fine following his tragic Jolly Rancher-related injury.

New York Giants - For the first time all camp, the Giants put the pads on, and it led to the most physical practice so far. Hakeem Nicks was limited in practice, while Jeremy Jorne was carted off with a foot injury that only further weakens the receiver corps.

Philadelphia Eagles - The Eagles did not practice on Tuesday.

Washington Redskins - The Redskins hosted Nick Barnett on Tuesday and put him through a short workout. If healthy, Barnett could be signed to help Washington's linebacker depth. The team also continued to wear their increasingly popular bucket hats. But the real question for the Skins is at receiver, where they need to get more from the position.

NFC South

Atlanta Falcons - General manager Thomas Dimitroff said that the team has moved on from free-agent Richard Seymour. Roddy White is focusing on topping 1,000 yards for the seventh consecutive year.

Carolina Panthers - The Panthers continue to make their transition away from the read option offense in favor of a more conventional approach. Zach Pianalto was also signed to replace the waived Nelson Rosario at tight end. There was good news on Tuesday, as first and second-round picks Star Lotulelei and Kawann Short had good days.

New Orleans Saints - Martez Wilson will be out for 2-4 weeks after injuring his left elbow on Monday, which is especially rough for a Saints team already without Victory Butler for the season. Kenny Vaccaro is making his presence known with physical play, and Tuesday was no different as he got the best of Jimmy Graham.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers - It was a good injury day for the Bucs, who saw William Gholston and Markus White join practice, while Gary Gibson should be back on Wednesday. Only Mike Williams was hurt in practice, and it appears to be just cramps. Meanwhile, Josh Freeman continues to get more comfortable in the Bucs' new offense.

NFC North

Chicago Bears - The Bears did not practice on Tuesday.

Detroit Lions - The Lions' plan for Louis Delmas is to practice every other day, which continued on Tuesday when he returned to practice. The offensive line is beginning to take shape, with Jake Scott and Corey Hilliard on the right side of the line. Jim Schwartz had plenty to say after practice.

Green Bay Packers - Eddie Lacy is a big guy, but the running back insisted he's not overweight, and his head coach agrees. On the defensive side of things, the secondary is impressing despite being hit by its fair share of injuries. General manager Ted Thompson spoke with the media for the first time in training camp, where he was typically optimistic.

Minnesota Vikings - The Vikings are waiting for a few key players to get healthy. Wide receiver Greg Childs is recovering from two torn tendons in both knees, and on Tuesday, head coach Leslie Frazier said there is no timeline on his return. Fullback Jerome Felton also missed his second consecutive day of practice, and first-round pick Xavier Rhodes was called on a blatant pass interference.

NFC West

Arizona Cardinals - The Cardinals are doing whatever they can to upgrade the offensive line, and brought in Eric Winston to compete at right tackle. On Tuesday, Winston replaced Bobby Massie, who started training camp as the starter at right tackle. Protection is key this season given that the Cardinals traded for quarterback Carson Palmer, who isn't the most mobile quarterback out there.

San Francisco 49ers - Things are looking up for Eric Reid, who was expected to make an immediate impact when he was drafted in April and looks set to do just that. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio has been praising the safety throughout camp, and on Tuesday he said he expected the rookie to start before the year is over. Things aren't going so well at receiver, where A.J. Jenkins and Kassim Osgood both sat out practice.

Seattle Seahawks - A balky knee continues to sideline Sidney Rice, who went to Switzerland for treatment. Meanwhile, the Seahawks continue to wait on Percy Harvin's decision on how to handle his injured hip. On the other side of the ball, the defensive backs are coming along well.

St. Louis Rams - With everyone in full pads, Sam Bradford faced more pressure and traffic than he had earlier in camp, but he still performed well. He's developing a good rapport with Chris Givens too, who is looking more and more like a No. 1 receiver. That's all good news because expectations are high for the offense.
