week of training camp:

    I love training camp. Not only is it the official start of football season, but it’s also the only time we can see the 49ers practice this campaign. Talent and competition, desperation and expectation. This is football in its purest form, played by one of the best teams in the NFL. Yes, the 49ers are that just that, even with a first-year starter at quarterback. I don’t need to see the other 31 teams to make such a determination. Here’s what else I’ve taken away from the start of camp and what I’m looking forward to in the weeks to come. This 49ers defense is going to be so, so good » Training camp, especially the portion without pads, can fool you into believing some crazy things. But here’s something I am certain will stand up in a few days, weeks, and months: This 49ers defense is sick. Let’s just start with the basics: there isn’t a weak unit on it. We start, as the Niners do, up front. This Niners’ defensive line is impressive. Consistently one of the best...
    Just about every season in Owings Mills, Ravens coach John Harbaugh will brand a new team slogan on T-shirts for coaches and players. His message in 2022: “Come to work ready to work.” So far, so good. Over their first four days of full-team practices in training camp, the Ravens approached their preparations with good intentions. Every session seemed to provide more answers than questions. Starting Monday, though, the work gets a little more intense. “The pads are coming on Monday, so it’s going to be exciting to see,” Harbaugh said after Saturday’s open practice at M&T Bank Stadium. “That will be the first time. The biggest thing to look for with practice is how the guys handle the mental part of it. All of a sudden, they’ve got something more to think about — the physical part of it — and not let it be too big for you.” With the preseason opener fast approaching, this next week offers some Ravens an opportunity to build on an impressive start, and other Ravens a chance to turn their stock around....
    Getty/Heavy When a team loses its franchise quarterback to retirement (albeit past due), the search for a new field general takes center stage. The Pittsburgh Steelers are in the thick of just that. Players reported to Latrobe for training camp on July 26, but it wasn’t until the following day they took to the grass for practice. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has his watchful eye on everyone, but the quarterbacks are under the most scrutiny as camp ramps up. With only so many reps to go around, it’ll be interesting to see how they’re divvied up going forward. The order remains as it has since organized team activities (OTAs) in the spring: Mitch Trubisky, Mason Rudolph, Kenny Pickett. Trubisky got all the first-team reps during the first week of camp, according to Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Brian Batko. When the Steelers return to work on Monday, Aug. 1, we’ll see if Tomlin switches things up and gives Mason Rudolph a shot with the first team and Kenny Pickett a shot with the second. ALL the latest Steelers news straight...
    The first week of training camp is in the books, and the Mike McDaniel era of the Miami Dolphins franchise began about as smoothly as it could have possibly gone. The offense showcased itself against a vanilla-look defense in Saturday’s practice, which was open to the public, and that’s exactly what the fans needed to see to inject some hope into this season. Here are some more takeaways from the Dolphins’ first week of training camp: Tyreek Hill has rare, game-changing speed I’ve never seen anyone with Hill’s combination of speed and quickness in all my years. He’s the fastest player on a football field I’ve ever seen — and it isn’t even close. That explains why he’s been a Pro Bowler every year he’s been in the league (six), and indicates that his $30 million-a-year contract, and the treasure chest of draft picks Miami gave Kansas City to get him was well worth it because there isn’t a player in the NFL who can shut him down for 50 snaps a game. At some point Hill’s going to be...
    Running back Corey Clement has agreed to terms on a deal with the Ravens, his agent confirmed Monday night, filling out the team’s depth at an injury-depleted position ahead of training camp. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Top running backs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards, who missed all of last season with knee injuries, will start training camp this week on the physically-unable-to-perform list. With the arrival of Clement and the departure of Ricky Person Jr., who left camp last week after reporting with his fellow rookies, the Ravens should have five healthy options for Wednesday’s first full-team practice. Veteran Mike Davis and rookie Tyler Badie featured prominently in the Ravens’ offseason workouts. Justice Hill, who missed all of last season with a torn Achilles tendon, was healthy enough to participate. Nate McCrary, who had two carries last season with the Ravens, is also in the mix. Team officials are hopeful that Dobbins and Edwards, who can return to practice when they’re cleared, will be ready for their Sept. 11 season opener. Clement, 27, had 33 carries for...
    The Ravens placed six players on the physically-unable-to-perform list Friday, five days before their first full-team practice of training camp. Running backs J.K. Dobbins (knee) and Gus Edwards (knee), outside linebacker Tyus Bowser (Achilles tendon), left tackle Ronnie Stanley (ankle), cornerback Marcus Peters (knee) and safety Ar’Darius Washington (foot) will start camp on the PUP list, meaning they can participate in team meetings and use the team’s training and medical facilities but cannot practice. Players can be moved off the PUP list any time before the start of the regular season. Dobbins, Edwards and Peters all tore their ACLs before the start of last season, part of a rash of injuries that led to the Ravens finishing 8-9 and missing the playoffs for the first time since 2017. “I’d say they’re all on schedule, but what is the schedule?” coach John Harbaugh said last month when asked about the status of Dobbins, Edwards and Stanley. “The knee injuries are a little tougher to say what the schedule really is. So, [if] you talk to J.K. [Dobbins], he’s the starting running...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — When will the Ben Simmons drama end in Philadelphia? Will he start the season with the 76ers? A new report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski says Ben Simmons will not report for the opening of training camp next week and intends to never play another game as a 76er. Simmons hasn’t spoken to the Sixers since a meeting in August when he told them he wouldn’t be attending camp.

    SANTA CLARA — It’s been easy to be impatient with the Niners’ 2020 first first-round pick, Javon Kinlaw. After all, the 49ers effectively traded DeForest Buckner, one of the best defensive players in football, for him. His rookie season was adequate. Neither good nor bad.   But Kinlaw looks poised for a much-anticipated breakout in 2021. And no one is more eager for it than the man himself. When a strange leg injury prevented Kinlaw from participating in 11-on-11 drills to start training camp, the former South Carolina Gamecock paced the sideline like a madman, creating a sense of ominousness. No one on the Niners’ coaching staff could hold Kinlaw back, so it’s a good thing Kinlaw never decided to put himself into the fray. But once Kinlaw was able to participate, he has steadily increased in both snaps and impact. And on Sunday, he was the best Niner on the field — bar none. There doesn’t seem to be a Niner player that can hold back Kinlaw, either. It remains to...
    Julie Bowen Helps Rescue a Woman Who Fainted During a Hike Ikea loyal customers can now win a candle that smells like its famous meatballs Saturday was not the best day for Jalen Hurts, who had his worst session of the nine Philadelphia Eagles training camp practices thus far. The Eagles offense was going against the first-team defense, and Hurts was at the center of a bad day for the offense. © Provided by CBS Sports Hurts threw an interception to linebacker Eric Wilson and almost tossed another in the session. He struggled to complete passes, missing a wide open Jalen Reagor in the middle of the field. Philadelphia was missing two receivers, as DeVonta Smith and John Hightower are week-to-week with injuries -- part of the issues occurring on that side of the ball (Reagor and Quez Watkins started on the first team).  Another point worth mentioning was the first team offensive line. Andre Dillard was the left tackle and Sua Opeta and Jack Driscoll were also on the first team due to injuries. Hurts didn't have his...
    Offensive Lineman Sam Young is just the latest in a mysterious line of retirements and resignations. Las Vegas Raiders offensive lineman Sam Young retired Tuesday, the latest in a puzzling exodus which included the team’s President, a Senior Vice President, Running Backs Coach and three players. Journeyman running back Theo Riddick was the first player to retire on Jul. 30, followed by linebacker James Onwualu on Aug. 2. We have placed T Sam Young on the Reserve/Retired list. pic.twitter.com/lArs3Dvv7P — Las Vegas Raiders (@Raiders) August 3, 2021 Young, 34, was entering into his 12th season in the NFL. He was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the sixth round of the 2010 draft. He played in 103 games over the course of his career, with stints in Buffalo, Jacksonville, Miami and San Francisco. He played 11 games for the Raiders, with seven starts. Riddick, 30, was drafted by the Detroit Lions in the sixth round of the 2013 draft. He spent six seasons with the Lions, carrying the ball 285 times and catching 288 passes, with 19 touchdowns in...
    Getty Jordan Fuller celebrates getting an interception in a 2020 game against the San Francisco 49ers. Fuller has been praised for his work ethic during 2021 training camp. Last week we learned about the following: Jalen Ramsey is still a pick six king, DeSean Jackson still has jets in his 34-year-old legs and Matthew Stafford can execute a no-look pass not once but twice. Stafford no-look to @DarrellH8 ???? pic.twitter.com/iUZ1FqYAkd — Los Angeles Rams (@RamsNFL) August 1, 2021 But looks like week two is when the intensity really turns up. Why? This is supposed to be the week the pads come on. Granted, it was supposed to occur Saturday. But per The Athletic’s Jourdan Rodrigue, the league most hold five non-full padded practices before putting the entire armor on, which Sean McVay said was a miscommunication lapse on his part. In this case, looks like the pads will officially come on Tuesday. One prediction: Someone – either a team reporter, the Rams Twitter account or a fan – will capture a Ram busting out the reality version of...
    At the beginning of 49ers training camp, head coach Kyle Shanahan declared that there was no competition for the starting quarterback job. Jimmy Garoppolo was the starter, Trey Lance was his backup. No further questions. A week in, and that might still be the case. But perhaps there should be a conversation about it. Yes, the reports were true: Garoppolo looked fantastic in the early days of camp. But then, Saturday, he looked pedestrian, throwing two interceptions, including a 40-yard-plus deep ball that had the same balance as a frat pledge at the start-of-school kegger, ending up a good five yards short of Deebo Samuel near the goal-line. It seems as if Garoppolo is not a new quarterback, after all. Meanwhile, while Garoppolo looked like same-old-Jimmy, Lance looked like the future on Saturday. Not only was he throwing laser beams all over the field, per usual, but he started tucking the ball and running, too. There were even a few read-option plays that Shanahan dusted out of his old Washington playbook on Saturday. ...

    GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Cincinnati Reds outfielder Shogo Akiyama returned to spring training after a week away to be with his wife, who was seriously injured when a tree fell on her in a park in Ohio. Akaya Akiyama was hospitalized after being injured by the tree last week while she was walking in Sharon Woods in Cincinnati. Her husband said Thursday that her condition is improving. “I was in the hospital with her, I was spending time with (the) kids,” the 32-year-old Akiyama said through a translator at the team’s spring training complex in Goodyear, Arizona. “I think it was the inevitable time that I needed with this week away.” Manager David Bell said Akiyama won’t be in the lineup for a spring training game until Sunday. The Reds signed the Japanese player to a three-year, $21 million contract before the 2020 season. He played in 54 games last year, hitting .245. “That’s bigger than baseball,” Reds pitcher Lucas Sims said. “Being able to see him today, it made us all happy and glad to know that she’s doing...
    Rangers D K’Andre Miller stands out in first week of camp By: Frank Curto January 8, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditNew York Rangers rookie defenseman K’Andre Miller is standing tall among the defensemen in his first training camp with the club. Miller practiced with the team this past summer while the team prepared for their qualifying round against the Carolina Hurricanes, but he was not eligible to be placed on the playoff roster. He left a good impression with the coaching staff in July and brought that work ethic with him to training camp looking for a spot on the 23 man roster. “I thought K’Andre Miller was really good tonight,” Quinn said after the scrimmage. “He just moves so well, he takes up so much space, he’s got such a long reach, he closes on people quickly. His puck decisions, to me, have really been the surprise to all of us. We knew he made some good decisions, but to adapt as quickly as he has so far — and again, let’s keep...

He ran the ball 250 times for 1,135 yards (4.5 yards per carry) and 13 touchdowns. He also caught 53 passes for 519 yards. However, this holdout isn’t likely to last long.
