Cowboys Camp Report: Day 1

OXNARD, Calif. -- A daily review of the hot topics coming out of Dallas Cowboys training camp: With Jason Garrett wanting to work the players even more slowly than the collective bargaining agreement allows, the offense did not work against the defense on Thursday. The CBA requires teams to not work in pads until the third day of training camp. Garrett has looked at ways to mitigate injury concerns, so he kept the offense and defense separate.

49ers camp report: Jimmie Ward shines

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Jimmie Ward didn't waste any time making his presence felt as a San Francisco 49er. The 49ers' first-round pick intercepted a pass from standout quarterback Colin Kaepernick on the third play of 7-on-7 scrimmage in the team's first practice Thursday. Ward took a tipped ball easily into his hands. "If I keep making plays like that I will be seen (by the coaches,)" Ward said after practice. He already has been. Earlier Thursday, 49ers' coach Jim Harbaugh said this of Ward: "Good player, good football player.

Broncos camp report: Day 1

A daily review of the hot topics coming out of training camp: When the Broncos selected wide receiver Cody Latimer in the second round of this past May's draft, they did it knowing full well Latimer had suffered a fracture in his left foot in a pre-draft workout, much like Demaryius Thomas had before the Broncos made him a first-round pick in 2010. "I think they're like experts when it comes to that because it's worked out for them before," Latimer said.

Saints' Byrd back 'sooner than later'

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. -- It's still unclear whether or not safety Jairus Byrd will be back on the field for the New Orleans Saints' first training camp practice on Friday. But coach Sean Payton said he expects the three-time Pro Bowler back "sooner than later." "Much like we expected," Payton said of Byrd, who underwent a minor back surgery this summer to alleviate a nagging disc issue. The Saints' original projection was for Byrd to be healthy enough to participate in training camp -- and back to full speed in plenty of time for the regular season.

Jets camp report: Day 1

CORTLAND, N.Y. -- A review of the hot topics from Thursday at the New York Jets: 1. Sunglasses needed: Rex Ryan was fired up after the first practice, radiating enough sunshine to raise the tanning index to a 10.

Redskins Camp Report: Day 2

RICHMOND, Va. -- A daily review of the hot topics coming out of training camp: Robert Griffin III did not have a strong day throwing the ball for a variety of reasons. This is a crucial season for Griffin, who now has a coach he feels comfortable with and more weapons at his disposal. So he must produce and show improvement. He knows it. Griffin did not have a great start to camp, though it wasn't as if his protection was all that great either.

Bengals camp report: Day 1

CINCINNATI -- A daily review of the hot topics coming out of the Cincinnati Bengals' training camp: It was hard not to notice how efficient starting quarterback Andy Dalton was Thursday as he connected with a number of his receivers during the Bengals' first day of camp. While the short and intermediate routes impressed at times, it was his work with the deep ball that caused the estimated 1,200 fans on hand to "ooh" and "ahh" at times. Few receptions drew applause from onlookers like the bomb Dalton completed late in practice to receiver A.

Chiefs camp report: Day 1

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- Some thoughts and observations on the Kansas City Chiefs' first training camp practice at Missouri Western State University: Sean McGrath was the Chiefs' leading pass receiver at tight end last season with 26 receptions, but after reporting to camp a day earlier, he was absent from practice. He is reportedly considering retirement. McGrath faces a difficult battle to make the regular-season roster. At tight end the Chiefs have veteran starter Anthony Fasano, Travis Kelce and Demetrius Harris.
