Wednesday's NFL training camp injury and roster news

The 2020 regular season is just around the corner, and NFL Network has you covered with wall-to-wall training camp coverage each day starting at 10 a.m. ET. Follow along here as we keep up with all the news, injuries and transactions of the day.

  • The Carolina Panthers signed former XFL star receiver Cam Phillips and receiver Darrell Stewart Jr. Quarterback P.J. Walker's favorite target from the Houston Roughnecks now joins him in Carolina.
  • New York Giants safety Xavier McKinney has suffered a fracture to his left foot and will undergo surgery, the team announced. He broke the fifth metatarsal and he'll be out two to three months, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported. Linebacker David Mayo has a torn meniscus in his left knee. NFL Network Insider reports Mayo's knee procedure is expected to be a trim rather than a full repair, which could put him back on the field in about three weeks.
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians was asked about wideout Chris Godwin not practicing Wednesday. He didn't practice Tuesday and this was his third day off in six days. "That's for me to know and nobody else to find out," Arians stated, according to NFL Network's James Palmer.
  • Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery left practice Wednesday with what is believed to be a groin strain, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported, per a source. Optimism is that he avoided a serious injury. Evaluation is ongoing, Pelissero added. Coach Matt Nagy said safety Tashaun Gipson did not practice Wednesday due to a lower back issue, but it's not serious.
  • The Seattle Seahawks could potentially be reuniting with wide receiver Paul Richardson. Garafalo reports Richardson, a former second-round pick of the Seahawks, is set to work out for the team later this week and could sign. Center Justin Britt, who started the previous six seasons for Seattle, is also in town for a visit, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported via the transaction wire.

Safety Jamal Adams did not take part in the team scrimmage Wednesday and was seen on Tuesday wearing a protective club on his left hand. Coach Pete Carroll told the media Wednesday these were products of Adams having cut his finger in a kitchen accident while slicing strawberries. The laceration required stitches, but is not seen as a major injury. "He's fine. He's got to take the stitches out. He'll be good," Carroll said via ESPN's Brady Henderson.

  • Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) and running back Kenyan Drake (foot) continued to sit out practice, and coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters that he doesn't want either player to practice until they're 100 percent.
  • New England Patriots running back Sony Michel, who underwent foot surgery in the offseason and has been on the PUP list, was at practice Wednesday and is officially off the PUP list, Rapoport reported. A positive development for the starter.
  • New York Jets coach Adam Gase told reporters he pulled running back Le'Veon Bell from practice as a precaution because his hamstring got a little tight. Bell, however, later took to Twitter to downplay any concern.

Jets wideouts Breshad Perriman (knee) and Denzel Mims (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, as expected. Mims was seen doing some light running on the side.

  • Las Vegas Raiders offensive tackle Trent Brown (undisclosed) is back at practice.
  • The Tennessee Titans are signing running back Jeremy McNichols, Pelissero reported.
  • Indianapolis Colts receiver Parris Campbell was in a minor car accident on his way to the team facility Wednesday and he is in the concussion protocol, per the team.
  • The San Francisco 49ers held a wideout workout today, and source said they are expected to sign former Broncos WR River Cracraft, Rapoport reported. He impressed this morning and knows the system. SF has not ruled out signing another player from the workout, as well, given their injuries at the position, Rapoport added.
  • The Cleveland Browns claimed receiver Damion Willis off waivers from the Bengals, the team announced.
  • The Miami Dolphins are hosting defensive end Avery Moss for a visit and he is expected to sign with the team, provided he passes his physical and COVID-19 test, Rapoport reported. The Dolphins are releasing running back Kalen Ballage after two seasons, Rapoport reported Wednesday night.
  • The Houston Texans are working out quarterback Cody Kessler, running back C.J. Prosise and wide receiver Ryan Grant.
