Thursday practice:

latest news at page 1:
    Ravens left tackle Ronnie Stanley missed Friday’s practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills. Stanley (ankle) practiced fully on Wednesday for the first time this season and practiced without limitations again on Thursday. Afterward, he said he felt “really good” and indicated that he could make his season debut Sunday. “I’m very close, and I’ll talk it over with the rest of the staff and coaches,” he said. “We’re going to make the best decision that’s best for the team.” With Patrick Mekari (ankle) listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game after missing his third straight practice Friday, the Ravens could start rookie Daniel Faalele against a vaunted Bills defense. Faalele hadn’t played left tackle in a game until Sunday’s win over the New England Patriots. Coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday that the Ravens wouldn’t activate Stanley, who’s been limited by ankle injuries to just one game since November 2020, until he feels he’s “going to be good.” “It’s a priority to go out there and be at his best when he comes back,” Harbaugh...
    What in the name of Zapruder was happening at the Miami Dolphins practice in Cincinnati on Wednesday with someone sending video of a few plays on social media? And does it matter? First, someone with the Twitter handle JFolkUHC shot video of a handful of Dolphins walk-through plays on Wednesday, and the league is looking into it, according to a league source. That’s not the type of thing the league wants teams to have to fight. The prime news value was that Tua Tagovailoa was at quarterback. That would suggest he’s going to play Thursday night despite injury issues from last Sunday, as is has been expected as this week went on. There were a couple simple pass formations, a run, a punt — but you don’t rarely, if ever, see video of teams at such practices. Then again, due to Hurricane Ian, the Dolphins left South Florida early Wednesday and practiced at the University of Cincinnati. If that gets you riled up a little, relax. Another picture shows a group of people watching the Dolphins practice. In other words,...

    Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is officially questionable to play through his back and ankle injuries in Thursday night’s game at the Cincinnati Bengals. Tagovailoa is one of seven Dolphins with a questionable designation heading into Thursday, according to the team’s Wednesday injury report. The others were tackle Terron Armstead (toe), cornerback Xavien Howard (groin/glute), wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (groin), defensive tackle Raekwon Davis (knee), safety Brandon Jones (chest) and slot receiver Cedrick Wilson Jr. (ribs/toe) Tagovailoa was originally deemed questionable by Mike McDaniel when the Dolphins coach spoke to reporters on Tuesday, but Tagovailoa said “the plan” was for him to play. Miami’s quarterback left Sunday’s win over the Buffalo Bills at the first half’s two-minute warning after falling onto his back and having the back of his head hit the ground in a whiplash effect due to a late push from Bills linebacker Matt Milano after Tagovailoa threw a pass. Tagovailoa appeared woozy and stumbled after getting up from the hit that drew a roughing-the-passer penalty. He was checked on the field, went into the locker room and...

    Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman missed Friday’s practice because of a personal matter but is expected to play Sunday against the New England Patriots, coach John Harbaugh said. Wide receiver Devin Duvernay has also been cleared from concussion protocol and will play Sunday. Bateman wasn’t listed on the injury report Thursday and didn’t appear to be limited in the locker room after practice. He leads the team with 167 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Duvernay, who returned the opening kickoff 103 yards for a touchdown in Sunday’s loss against the Miami Dolphins before taking a hard hit and exiting in the fourth quarter, did not practice Wednesday and was limited Thursday. He has six catches for 96 yards and two touchdowns this season. Left tackle Ronnie Stanley (ankle) had a recovery day and did not participate Friday, Harbaugh said, while running back J.K. Dobbins (knee) practiced fully. ()
    Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman and left tackle Ronnie Stanley were missing at practice Friday, the team’s final workout before Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots. Bateman wasn’t listed on the injury report Thursday and didn’t appear to be limited in the locker room after practice. He leads the team with 167 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Stanley (ankle), who was limited Wednesday and Thursday, has yet to practice three times in a week this season. He was inactive for the Ravens’ first two games and isn’t expected to be activated Sunday. Coach John Harbaugh is scheduled to address reporters Friday afternoon. An injury report for Sunday’s game will be released later. This story will be updated. ()
    After wearing a protective sleeve over his right elbow at practice Wednesday, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was back to normal Thursday. The right-handed Jackson was a full participant in practice and threw without any apparent limitations during the half-hour period of practice open to reporters. He was listed as limited on Wednesday’s injury report after not throwing to receivers at practice, but he said he expected to play Sunday against the New England Patriots. Jackson appeared to suffer the minor elbow injury after banging his arm against fullback Patrick Ricard late in the third quarter of the second half of the Ravens’ loss to the Miami Dolphins. “He had a really good day, really dialed in on what we’re working on,” offensive coordinator Greg Roman said after practice Thursday. “Just another positive day for him, another step forward. He’s really on a pretty good trajectory right now, so we just have to stay with it.” The Ravens got good injury news elsewhere Thursday. Every player on the team’s 53-man roster was available to practice, including wide receiver Devin Duvernay (concussion)...
    Miami Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard returned to practice on Thursday, but left tackle Terron Armstead was still missing during the media viewing portion of drills. Both missed Wednesday’s practice — Howard with a groin injury and Armstead still dealing with the toe ailment that he played through in Sunday’s 42-38 win against the Baltimore Ravens. The two veterans, who have six Pro Bowls between them, are pivotal for the Dolphins (2-0)as they get set to host the Buffalo Bills (2-0) in a divisional matchup at Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday. Dolphins cornerbacks coach Sam Madison, speaking before Thursday practice, expressed that he’s not worried about Howard’s availability for Sunday’s game against the Bills. “You look around the league, there’s veteran maintenance days all around the league,” Madison said of his All-Pro’s Wednesday absence. “He’s a pro. He’s been through this before, and I’m looking forward to him to be 100 percent.” Howard will be the key in Miami’s efforts to limit Bills star receiver Stefon Diggs on Sunday. Madison said he spoke with Howard about what he called “lackadaisical play...
    Ravens cornerbacks Marlon Humphrey, Marcus Peters and Brandon Stephens and running back J.K. Dobbins were all listed as questionable for Sunday’s home opener against the Miami Dolphins in the team’s final injury report of the week. Left tackle Ronnie Stanley and wide receiver James Proche II were listed as doubtful, while rookie defensive tackle Travis Jones, who returned to practice Wednesday after suffering a knee injury in the preseason, was listed as questionable. Humphrey did not practice Friday, raising further questions about the health of the team’s secondary. With Stephens (quadriceps) missing practice for the second straight day, the Ravens’ top four cornerbacks entering the season are all either unavailable or uncertain for Week 2. Humphrey (groin) was limited in practice Thursday, while Kyle Fuller suffered a season-ending knee injury Sunday against the New York Jets. Peters (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday and a limited participant Friday, but he hasn’t played in a game since tearing his ACL a year ago. The only healthy cornerbacks on the Ravens’ 53-man roster are rookies Jalyn Armour-Davis and Damarion “Pepe”...
    Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey was absent for the open portion of practice Friday, raising further questions about the health of the team’s secondary ahead of Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins. With Brandon Stephens (quadriceps) missing practice for the second straight day, the Ravens’ top four cornerbacks entering the season are all either unavailable or uncertain for Week 2. Humphrey (groin) was limited in practice Thursday, while Kyle Fuller suffered a season-ending knee injury Sunday against the New York Jets. Marcus Peters (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, but he hasn’t played in a game since tearing his ACL a year ago. The only healthy cornerbacks on the Ravens’ 53-man roster are rookies Jalyn Armour-Davis and Damarion “Pepe” Williams, who combined for 16 defensive snaps in Week 1. Injuries could leave the Ravens’ secondary at a disadvantage against a Miami Dolphins receiving corps headlined by Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. Wide receiver James Proche II (groin) was the Ravens’ only other absence Friday. After missing two straight workouts, he’s unlikely to play Sunday. Fullback Patrick Ricard (calf) returned...
    The Ravens’ cornerback room is in flux as Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins approaches. Four days after Week 1 starter Kyle Fuller suffered a season-ending knee injury, projected Week 2 starters Marlon Humphrey (groin) and Brandon Stephens (quadriceps) were limited and missing at practice Thursday, respectively. The Ravens could get some help Sunday against the Miami Dolphins with the activation of Marcus Peters (knee), a full participant in practice Thursday for the first time this season. Coach John Harbaugh sidestepped a question Monday about how close Peters was to playing in the season opener. After running extensively before the game inside MetLife Stadium, the three-time Pro Bowl selection was inactive. “I don’t have the measurement on that,” said Harbaugh, who’s scheduled to address reporters after practice Friday. “That’s not something I have a number on.” Depending on their secondary’s health, the Ravens could lean on rookies Damarion “Pepe” Williams and Jalyn Armour-Davis to contain explosive wide receivers Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. Rookie defensive tackle Travis Jones (knee), who missed all of practice last week and the team’s opener,...
    Getty Lions cornerback Amani Oruwariye embraces a teammate after a 2021 game. The Detroit Lions have seen a rash of injury concerns pile up early in the season, and ahead of Week 2, the team has been spared at all from damage on a daily basis. On Thursday, September 15, a brand new injury case arose during practice that warrants attention for the team. Cornerback Amani Oruwariye, who led the Lions in interceptions in 2021, left practice favoring his back. DetroitLions.com reporter Tim Twentyman was at practice, and provided an update for the team about who was and wasn’t around. It’s clear that the team is still facing lots of potential troubles for Week 2. No Frank Ragnow (groin/foot), D’Andre Swift (ankle), Jonah Jackson (finger) at open portion of Lions practice Thursday. Amani Oruwariye walked in with trainers after grabbing at his back. Taylor Decker (calf) & Michael Brockers (knee) we’re back at practice. — Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) September 15, 2022 “No Frank Ragnow (groin/foot), D’Andre Swift (ankle), Jonah Jackson (finger) at open portion of Lions practice Thursday....
    Left tackle Ronnie Stanley and cornerback Brandon Stephens were among the five Ravens missing during the open portion of practice Thursday. Stanley (ankle) and Stephens (quadriceps) were both limited in practice Wednesday. Stanley, who also missed last Thursday’s practice, has yet to fully participate in a practice since being cleared to return. If he’s unavailable for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins, Patrick Mekari is expected to start. With cornerback Kyle Fuller on season-ending injured reserve after tearing his ACL in Sunday’s win over the New York Jets, Stephens was expected to start in Week 2 alongside Marlon Humphrey. If Stephens isn’t healthy, and cornerback Marcus Peters (knee) remains unavailable, the Ravens could lean on rookies Damarion “Pepe” Williams and Jalyn Armour-Davis to contain explosive wide receivers Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. Fullback Patrick Ricard (calf) was missing for the second straight practice, while wide receiver James Proche II (groin) was absent after being limited Wednesday. Tight end Nick Boyle, a full participant Wednesday, was out as well. In Miami Gardens, Florida, Dolphins left tackle Terron Armstead returned to practice...
    It turns out Terron Armstead’s Wednesday absence from Miami Dolphins practice may have been more about the veteran rest than the toe injury. Armstead, the Dolphins’ three-time Pro Bowl left tackle that was acquired in free agency this offseason, was back at the team’s practice on Thursday. He missed Wednesday drills with both a toe injury, which caused him to miss two snaps in Sunday’s 20-7 win over the New England Patriots, and veteran rest listed as reasons on Miami’s injury report. Dolphins right tackle Austin Jackson, who left Sunday’s game in the second quarter with a right ankle injury and did not return, was not seen for a second consecutive practice. Miami could be in for another game, on Sunday at the Baltimore Ravens, where backup tackle Greg Little is called upon. The Dolphins had a number of contingency plans on the offensive line tested against the Patriots as Little, who practiced fully on Wednesday with an ankle injury, left momentarily, as did Armstead later. “You always want to create consistency up front through guys playing their position, communicating...
    Getty Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark during the preseason. The Kansas City Chiefs enter Week 1 with an incredibly strong bill of health. There was one question mark heading into Friday’s practice, however, starting defensive end Frank Clark. The pass rusher was a new addition to the injury report on Thursday, with an undefined “illness.” Chiefs DE Frank Clark (illness) did not practice Thursday. OT Darian Kinnard (elbow) added to injury report but a full participant. Otherwise same as Wednesday with WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee), S Deon Bush (foot), RG Trey Smith (shoulder) and DE Malik Herring (abdomen) full go. — Matt Derrick (@mattderrick) September 8, 2022 He was the only player that was absent on September 8, putting his Week 1 status in some relatively minor doubt. On September 9, any concerns were quickly dismissed.Chiefs Get Update on Frank Clark’s Availability in Week 1According to several members of the Chiefs beat, Clark made a return to practice on Friday. KC Star reporter Herbie Teope even shared a photo that included the No. 55 in uniform....
    Getty Frank Ragnow playing for the Lions in a 2019 game. The Detroit Lions are seeing a random rash of injuries attack their offensive line room, and Thursday’s practice proved how nobody could be safe at this point. Already this week, the Lions lost Halapoulivaati Vaitai to a back injury for the first four weeks of the season. Then, they watched as his likely replacement Tommy Kraemer was kept out of practice. Now, things may have reached full-blown crisis levels. Thursday, center Frank Ragnow, who was limited in Wednesday’s practice with a groin injury, had to sit out entirely. That means the news for Detroit went from bad to worse in terms of depth along the offensive front as Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com pointed out. No C Frank Ragnow (groin) at open portion of Lions practice Thursday. Not good with Lions already down Big V at RG. — Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) September 8, 2022 “No C Frank Ragnow (groin) at open portion of Lions practice Thursday. Not good with Lions already down Big V at RG,” Twentyman tweeted....
    Left tackle Ronnie Stanley was one of three Ravens missing at the open portion of practice Thursday, his first absence since returning Monday. Stanley, who’s working his way back to full strength after a long ankle rehabilitation, was listed as limited on Wednesday’s injury report, the Ravens’ first of the regular season. Coach John Harbaugh said Monday that the team would monitor Stanley’s progress this week, but he indicated that a Week 1 return was unlikely. Stanley’s plan “just depends on how he’s doing,” Harbaugh said Monday. “A lot of it has to do with how he’s feeling and if he’s ready to go.” Tight end Nick Boyle, who practiced as a full participant Wednesday, was also missing Thursday. Rookie defensive tackle Travis Jones (knee) remains sidelined and is unlikely to play Sunday against the New York Jets. The Jets were also missing a starting tackle Thursday. Duane Brown, who was signed to replace the injured Mekhi Becton, missed his second straight practice with a shoulder injury. Starting right tackle George Fant, meanwhile, was limited Wednesday with a knee injury....
    Giants GM Joe Schoen cut linebacker Blake Martinez on Thursday, hours after saying “we like the guys that are here, the 53 players that are on the roster.” Schoen later said he couldn’t rule out anything that made the team better, when asked about wide receiver Darius Slayton, whom he said would “be on the team Week 1.” “Right now the 53 today, I’m not gonna say Week 1 on any of these guys,” Schoen said. “You never know what’s gonna happen. But we like our 53 right now. We’re gonna move forward with our 53. “If there’s opportunities available that we need to pursue then we will, whether it’s Darius or anybody else,” Schoen said. “Everybody’s competing on a daily basis for their position because we want the best 53.” It wasn’t immediately clear what led to Martinez’s release on Thursday specifically. But he had been absent from Wednesday’s practice for personal reasons. He returned to practice Thursday and was actually the first player to welcome the media back into the Giants’ locker room. “Welcome back!” he said with...
    The Miami Dolphins signed veteran cornerback Justin Bethel on Thursday as they placed safety Clayton Fejedelem on injured reserve. Bethel, in 10 seasons with the Arizona Cardinals, Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriot, has appeared in 159 games with 14 starts, totaling 102 tackles (89 solo), four interceptions — three for touchdowns — 20 passes defensed, five forced fumbles and eight fumble recoveries. A prominent special teamer, he has made 135 career special teams tackles. Special teams takes the biggest hit with Fejedelem going on IR with an undisclosed injury. He will miss at least the first four games of the season. The Dolphins have also been forming their practice squad since finalizing the initial 53-man active roster on Tuesday. As of Thursday evening, the Dolphins have announced 11 practice-squad signings: Wide receivers River Cracraft and Braylon Sanders, running back ZaQuandre White, safety Verone McKinley, edge defenders Porter Gustin and Cameron Goode, offensive linemen Larnel Coleman and James Empey and defensive tackles Niles Scott and Ben Stille and cornerback Kalon Barnes. Cracraft, who has been with new Dolphins coach Mike...
    Getty Dan Campbell coaching the Lions against the Bears in 2021. The Detroit Lions are trying to get healthier in multiple ways ahead of Week 1 of the season, and a significant player could be on a firm road to recovery. While Detroit’s defensive line is dealing with the continued absence of Romeo Okwara and Josh Paschal and also the lingering injury of Levi Onwuzurike, the team did see Julian Okwara return to practice. As Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press pointed out, it was the first time Okwara had been spotted back at practice since early in August. Julian Okwara back at Lions practice today for the first time since early August. Still no Levi or Iffy (working on the side w/trainers).

    The Chicago Bears on Thursday held their final practice of the week at Halas Hall and will travel to Cleveland for Saturday’s preseason finale against the Browns. Coach Matt Eberflus is eager for his team to take one more test under game conditions with most of his starters expected to play until halftime. Here are three things we learned Thursday in Lake Forest. 1. Offensive lineman Teven Jenkins is eager to continue his transition to right guard. In just his second week of practice at the position, Jenkins has been put in position to potentially win a starting role and believes he has strengths within his skill set to help him. “My physicality,” he said after Thursday’s practice. “It’s like you have a dude right there, right now instead of (having) all this space. At tackle, you have a lot of time to think about what’s going to happen and a lot of space to execute whatever technique you’re thinking about. At guard it’s happening a lot quicker — like really fast.” Jenkins, who figures to start Saturday night, was...
    Getty Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles revealed if Tom Brady will play on Saturday, August 20, against the Colts. Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles will go with the dress rehearsal plan for the final preseason game after all. That will include Bucs quarterback Tom Brady taking center stage, too, against the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday, August 27. Brady will see his first preseason action since his 11-day absence from the team, which led to a firestorm of speculation. “Any player who is healthy will play,” Bowles told reporters on Thursday, August 25. “We got together as a staff, and as a team we understand.

    The Miami Dolphins may have lost their final practice of training camp due to what coach Mike McDaniel dubbed “stomach bug-gate,” but they still have their preseason finale against the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday night to serve as a vital exhibition for players battling for the final roster spots. The Dolphins took the measure of canceling their scheduled joint practice with the Eagles on Thursday amid a spreading stomach bug affecting a number of players with the hope of keeping the team healthy for Saturday’s meeting with Philadelphia, allowing those roster hopefuls the opportunity of a lasting impression before cut-down day. “For a lot of guys, it’s the most important game of their career, and I hold a strong amount of value to that and didn’t want to compromise that in any way,” McDaniel said on Thursday of the decision. Indeed, there are difficult decisions on tap for McDaniel and his coaching staff between Thursday and the Tuesday 4 p.m. deadline for NFL teams to get down from 80 to 53 players. “There’s some jobs to be settled,” the Dolphins...
    The Miami Dolphins canceled their second joint practice with the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday morning with a stomach bug affecting players. The Dolphins instead met virtually “out of an abundance of caution as a result of a non-COVID illness,” as stated in a team release before a team source told the South Florida Sun Sentinel it’s a stomach bug spreading among players, which coach Mike McDaniel later confirmed in a Thursday morning press conference. “That was a unique curveball early this morning,” McDaniel said. “It was just the accumulation of some players having a stomach bug that we don’t really know totally where it was coming from and just trying to be overly cautious so that we didn’t further affect players on the team, as well as had to think of the best interest of the Philadelphia Eagles. Couldn’t, in good conscience, just move forward and try to limit reps of practice.” McDaniel added it’s “more than a couple of players” ill, along with a few staff members — but “not half the team.” “That’s what I was trying to...

    The Ravens know the kind of talent they have on their team. That doesn’t make general manager Eric DeCosta’s job over the next two-plus weeks any easier. By 4 p.m. Tuesday, the Ravens will have to trim their active roster to 85 players. A week later, they’ll need to get down to 80. On Aug. 30, three days after the Ravens’ preseason finale against the Washington Commanders, they’ll finalize their initial 53-man roster. Even then, DeCosta’s roster management won’t slow down. After making space for injured players who can return in 2022 — anyone placed on injured reserve by Aug. 30 is ineligible to play this season — the Ravens will have to make injured-reserve decisions, find short- and long-term replacements and assemble a practice squad. It won’t take much to change DeCosta’s calculus. But with training camp winding down, here’s a look at how his 53-man roster could take shape. Offense Quarterback (2): Lamar Jackson, Tyler Huntley Anthony Brown impressed in the second half Thursday, finishing 10-for-15 for 117 yards, but the Ravens can’t hold on to everyone. There...
    Both starting quarterbacks in the Miami Dolphins’ preseason opener at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be kept off the field. Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel is leaning toward not playing quarterback Tua Tagovailoa on Saturday night at Raymond James Stadium while the Buccaneers’ Tom Brady will be away from his team for more than a week to “deal with some personal things,” as Tampa coach Todd Bowles put it to reporters. McDaniel appears to feel comfortable with how Tagovailoa has performed in two weeks of intrasquad training camp practices and Wednesday’s joint practice against the Buccaneers entering Thursday’s session. “Based off of the last couple practices, I’m encouraged about the idea of not playing him, but again, that remains to be seen from what happens [Thursday], McDaniel said. “That has nothing to do with bottom-line results offensively. It’s more how prepared he is at practice. I just want to continue to build on what he’s been building on.” McDaniel has to weigh the benefits of preseason in-game reps with the potential injury risk. ”There is value in it, but every time...

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Two-time IndyCar champion Josef Newgarden was cleared Thursday to practice at Indianapolis Motor Speedway following his collapse after crashing at Iowa. Newgarden will be re-evaluated Friday after practice to determine if he can compete Saturday on the road course at Indianapolis. Newgarden was leading and headed to a sweep of the Iowa doubleheader Sunday when the suspension on his Team Penske car broke and he smashed hard into the wall. The driver from Nashville was evaluated in the Iowa medical center and cleared, but was required to undergo a second check Thursday by IndyCar officials at the speedway. But not long after leaving the care center, Newgarden lost consciousness and collapsed in the motorhome lot. He hit his head on the pavement, opening a wound, and was airlifted to a Des Moines hospital and held overnight. Team Penske stated all tests on Newgarden had been negative and he was held overnight as a precaution. The 31-year-old returned to Nashville on Monday and visited a specialist this week ahead of traveling to Indianapolis. Team...
    Jaylen Waddle put on a tutorial about Houston rap music on Thursday, and it is possible his music showcase might carry over to Friday, based on his productivity in the Miami Dolphins’ second practice. “Ya’ll liked that playlist?” Waddle asked the media after taking off his orange jersey. The orange jersey, which is given to the previous day’s top performer by the Dolphins coaches, is a reward system that gives players an opportunity to control the music played the next day at practice. Waddle’s playlist, which began with Z-Ro song “Mo City Don,” stood out just as much as his half dozen receptions, which consistently moved the chains. His performance was so impressive Waddle might become the first Dolphins player to earn the orange jersey for back-to-back standout performances during the Mike McDaniel era. But it wasn’t just Waddle getting off on the Dolphins secondary, which was practicing without Byron Jones, who is on the Physically Unable to Perform list because of an ankle injury, and Xavien Howard, whose participation is limited daily to a handful of reps early in...
    After an injury-marred 2021 campaign, the offseason has been kind to the Ravens so far. Coach John Harbaugh provided updates Thursday for quarterback Tyler Huntley and outside linebacker Jaylon Ferguson and expressed optimism about the long-term rehabilitation for left tackle Ronnie Stanley and running backs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards. “I’d say they’re all on schedule, but what is the schedule?” Harbaugh said of Dobbins and Edwards, who both suffered ACL tears last offseason. “The knee injuries are a little tougher to say what the schedule is.” Harbaugh did say he is “hopeful” Stanley, Dobbins and Edwards will all be ready for Week 1 and that they have a chance to return for training camp next month. Harbaugh said Huntley, who only practiced on Tuesday this week, has tendinitis in his shoulder from the high number of throws he’s made throughout minicamp and organized team activities. With starter Lamar Jackson skipping the nine voluntary practices, Huntley was the Ravens’ top quarterback before Jackson returned this week. Ferguson sprained his left ankle during Wednesday’s practice, Harbaugh said, as the fourth-year player...
    Giants coach Brian Daboll couldn’t guarantee on Thursday that injured No. 5 overall pick Kayvon Thibodeaux will be ready for the start of training camp in late July. “I’m not going to promise anything,” Daboll said. “He may or may not.” Daboll said “hopefully he’ll be good to go.” Sources have previously indicated that Thibodeaux’s undisclosed injury isn’t considered serious. And the rookie edge rusher did some light running on the side of Thursday’s ninth OTA practice. But Thibodeaux has been in a red jersey now for two weeks since tweaking something in his lower body during a May 19 OTA practice. It seems there are a bunch of players who could remain sidelined for next week’s mandatory minicamp before an extended summer break. Projected starting left guard Shane Lemieux, Thibodeaux’s former Oregon teammate, was the latest to rave about the rookie pass rusher’s intangibles. “He was phenomenal [at Oregon], and I know in practice he was going all-out every single play. He was a good dude, a good locker room guy. We had a lot of battles his [freshman]...
    Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney had a minor arthroscopic knee procedure, sources say, which is why he’s been in a red jersey on the side at spring OTA practices. But he is expected to be fine and ready for training camp. Toney, 23, was on his feet on the sidelines at Thursday’s open practice. He caught some balls off the JUGS machine before practice with fellow rehabbing wideout Sterling Shepard (Achilles). Veteran receiver Kenny Golladay also wore red and didn’t practice. Head coach Brian Daboll wouldn’t disclose why but suggested that everyone other than O-linemen Nick Gates (leg fracture) and Matt Peart (ACL) is on track for the start of camp. “I think everybody is moving in the right direction,” Daboll said. “They’ve done a good job. The training staff has really done a good job… I’d say [Gates] and Matt Peart, they’re rehabbing every single day, getting better each day. So we’ll see where they’re at.” Wide receivers coach Mike Groh said Thursday that Toney is “not running around full speed right now” but assured “he’ll be ready to...
    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Romain Grosjean flirted four times with the wall Thursday while preparing for his Indianapolis 500 debut. The Frenchman didn’t crash — his high drift with 15 minutes remaining in practice came oh-so-close to kissing the outside wall of Indianapolis Motor Speedway — but he seemed unbothered. He had the same attitude nearly eight hours earlier when he again dismissed Graham Rahal’s recent criticism and suggestion that Grosjean’s aggressive driving is not winning him many friends in the paddock. Grosjean moved from Formula One to IndyCar at the start of the 2021 season and quickly became a key player in the paddock. He landed a job for this year with Andretti Autosport, added ovals to his schedule after skipping all but one last season and was voted in a fan survey as IndyCar’s most popular driver. But he was put on blast by Rahal earlier this month after the two tangled at Barber, with Rahal suggesting that on IndyCar Radio that Grosjean had “overstayed his welcome.” Rahal also called Grosjean “a punk” and claimed at...
    Paul Dottino/WFAN New York Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney worked on the side during Thursday's OTA. Second-year wide receiver Kadarius Toney was not a full participant during the New York Giants‘ Organized Team Activities (OTA) on Thursday, but he still managed to pull some eyes on social media. Giants head coach Brian Daboll said before Thursday’s workout began that Toney would be among the players wearing a red non-contact injury, according to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post. This was apparently due to some kind of injury concern that is not entirely known. ALL the latest Giants news straight to your inbox! Subscribe to the Heavy on Giants newsletter here! Brian Daboll said Kadarius Toney and Kenny Golladay will be wearing red jerseys, as both are on some sort of injury/physical restrictions. — Paul Schwartz (@NYPost_Schwartz) May 19, 2022 Whatever physical limitation Toney was dealing with on Thursday, it did not seem to affect his hands.

    SAN JOSE – Alex Stalock joined the Sharks for their practice Thursday but the team’s goaltending situation still appears to be in flux with its next game two days away. Stalock, who was acquired Wednesday from the Edmonton Oilers for future considerations, and Zach Sawchenko were the two goalies on the ice for Sharks practice. Adin Hill, who has been bothered by a lower-body injury for close to six weeks, was on the ice before the start of practice but left shortly after it began. James Reimer, who suffered a lower-body injury in Tuesday’s game with the Vegas Golden Knights, was at the Sharks’ practice facility Thursday but did not skate. The Sharks host the Nashville Predators on Saturday and travel to play the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday. San Jose (24-24-6) entered Thursday nine points out of a playoff spot with 28 games left in the regular season. The Sharks did welcome back three other players who had been on injured reserve – defensemen Erik Karlsson and Jaycob Megna and winger Rudolfs Balcers. Karlsson hasn’t played since Jan. 20 as...
    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Did you say 87 degrees? That’s the temperature the Cincinnati Bengals practiced in Wednesday, trading an ice storm and frigid conditions back home for clear skies in Los Angeles. The team held its first of three Super Bowl practices at Drake Stadium on the campus of UCLA. After a 35-minute walkthrough, then lunch, the Bengals held a non-padded workout. Tight end C.J. Uzomah, recovering from a knee injury sustained in the first half of the AFC championship win in Kansas City, participated in the team stretching, then headed to the far end of the field to work with an athletic trainer. He was listed as a non-participant. Taylor said after the workout that Uzomah looks “positive” and is expected to do more Thursday. “Considering where he was when he fell on the turf last Sunday to where he is now, (I’m) really optimistic about how it’s going,” Taylor said. “We’ll continue to see him in action these next two days, but optimistic.” Guard Jackson Carman was limited because of a back injury. Taylor said the...
    FOXBORO (CBS) — The Patriots’ practice report for Saturday’s Wild Card clash against the Buffalo Bills is a plentiful one. The Patriots have 13 players listed as questionable for the tilt, including safety Kyle Dugger. Left tackle Isaiah Wynn is also on the list, and was the only one of the New England’s baker’s dozen of questionables who did not practice on Thursday. That makes it extremely unlikely that the offensive lineman will make the trip to Buffalo, let alone be protecting Mac Jones’ blind side come Saturday night. As for Dugger, he was once again limited in Thursday’s practice with the hand injury that kept him out of Week 18’s loss against the Miami Dolphins. Not having the hard-hitting safety would greatly diminish New England’s depth in the secondary, especially with No. 2 corner Jalen Mills still on the Reserve/COVID list. Linebacker Jamie Collins, who missed practice on Wednesday, returned Thursday in a limited capacity. Here is the full list of players deemed questionable on Thursday’s injury report: C David Andrews, Shoulder DL Christian Barmore, Knee LB Jamie Collins,...
    Getty Jared Goff walks off the field after a hit in 2021 against Arizona. The Detroit Lions will finish off the 2021-22 season in Week 18, and that means for the final time, the team will have to worry about designations and injuries this year. This week, the Lions don’t have many players confirmed to be out as the team prepares to finish off their year, but they do have multiple players who’s statuses are in question heading into the weekend and the season finale, and all could play a big role in determining the outcome of the game. The latest Lions news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Lions newsletter here! Join Heavy on Lions! This week, the Lions have had a small injury report for the most part. Their players are either all sidelined, or are facing a few milder situations. Even in spite of that, there are still some interesting cases to monitor over the weekend and into Sunday.
