Running backs Jamaal Williams (ankle) and Devante Mays (hamstring) are still banged up. Mike McCarthy said Williams will be limited this week, but Mays is not ready to go. Aaron Jones (hamstring) appears to have gotten past the worst of his injury, and McCarthy hopes he can play a little this week.

Mike McCarthy said he surprised by RB Akeem Judd's decision to retire just a couple of weeks after he signed with the Packers. "Professionally I thought he took a huge step, but this is a personal decision and I respect this," McCarthy said. Judd was going to get more opportunities this week but now McCarthy plans to play LeShun Daniels and Bronson HIll ready to play at Oakland this week. Both were signed over the weekend.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said left tackle Matt Kalil has a sore knee that is being monitored. Kalil has missed two practices as Carolina prepares for its dress rehearsal game on Friday against New England. Doesn't sound like Rivera anticipates Kalil playing as a precautionary measure. He will know more from doctors later today. If Kalil doesn't play then the Panthers will be down three linemen that began training camp as starters. Right tackle Daryl Williams (dislocated patella, torn MCL) and left guard Amini Silatolu (torn meniscus) have no timetable for a return. Neither is expected for the opener and Williams likely will miss at least half the season.

Injury updates: Bucs running back Charles Sims, who left Saturday's second preseason game with a knee injury, was not practicing Monday but was in a brace on the sideline and was walking on it. Carlton Davis, who missed the game with an ankle injury, did practice. Jordan Whitehead (shoulder) and M.J. Stewart (foot) both participated in practice but had on black non-contact jerseys.

Vernon Hargreaves, who has missed the first two preseason games with a groin injury, was backpedaling and jogging on the practice field today. He wasn't going full-speed, but this is progress.

Sean McDermott said Monday that Josh Allen is receiving first-team reps Monday as part of a rotation and the competition "remains open ... until it's not."

Jason Pierre-Paul spends some time with Vinny Curry after practice after Curry sought his help. JPP's drawn a lot of praise not only for his play, but for his leadership off the field. He's frequently on the sidelines in between reps helping out Noah Spence, Will Gholston and Will Clarke. JPP told me, "I said from the moment that I got here that I'll lead by example and that's just me period."

Matt Patricia: "We're going to try to continue to educate everybody on all the rules" when asked about the helmet rule. Said he thinks they are in the "same spot" and they are teaching to hit with their heads up and to "keep preaching" to put the shoulders in the game. Said they are in the education process now.

Saquon Barkley in the distance still not practicing because of a tweaked hamstring. It has now been a week. He warmed up with his teammates Monday and appears to be moving and running pretty well in drills on a side field.

The Lions lose a lot on special teams with Steve Longa going in IR with a torn ACL suffered against the Giants on Friday. Longa was a reserve linebacker but a core special teams player who was used on all four units. “As a special teams player, I'd say he's very tough, he's smart, very instinctual," Lions coach Matt Patricia said Saturday about Longa. "And those are some of the things that have been carrying over this year on defense also, which has been a positive that we've seen from him.”

The Giants have a new running back in camp. Jhurell Pressley was signed to take the spot of LB Thurston Armbrister, who was sidelined most of camp with an injury. Pressley spent some time with Pat Shurmur in Minnesota. Giants needed a RB with Saquon Barkley (hamstring) and Jalen Simmons (concussion) struggling with injuries.

Jaguars say S Tashaun Gipson (ankle), LG Andrew Norwell (calf), RT Jermey Parnell (knee), TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (chest), and DE Taven Bryan (abdominal) will return to practice today. C Brandon Linder (knee), NT Marcell Dareus (pectoral) will not practice.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan revealed some of his feelings on the quarterback situation Monday morning in a WFAN radio interview. He said he's "exceptionally impressed" with Sam Darnold, describing the rookie as "unflappable." Gee, wonder who he feels should be the starter. Maccagnan also said he's open to carrying only two quarterbacks, essentially confirming there's a "for sale" sign on Teddy Bridgewater. They also have Josh McCown, but his age (39) and salary ($10 million) means he has less trade value than Bridgewater.
