One of the biggest things taken from watching joint practices between the Lions & Giants — Ameer Abdullah continues to get a hefty amount of first-team work, including almost an entire series by himself in 11-on-11 scrimmaging drills. Detroit really seems to be giving him as many opportunities as possible. He also took second-team punt return work behind Jamal Agnew.

By my count, all Lions are out there for practice today against the Giants, although I didn't see T.J. Lang doing too much. Joe Dahl replaced him at RG.

Adam Gase said DeVante Parker is "week to week" with a hand injury. He got injured when his hand got stuck in shoulder pads as Xavien Howard broke up a pass intended for him. He can't catch passes right now. Won't go as far as to say If they expect him back for Week 1 yet.

Will Justin McCray end up as the Packers' new starting right guard? "I hope so," coach Mike McCarty said. "It would be nice to get [all five O-line starters] out there for a week. You want to keep the competition open, but he's definitely earned the opportunity."

Bucs rookie cornerback Carlton Davis has his left ankle wrapped and isn't practicing today. He appears to be walking fine but we'll have more details from head coach Dirk Koetter on the severity of it.

Aaron Rodgers is expected to play Thursday night against the Steelers. What does that mean for Brett Hundley, DeShone Kizer and Tim Boyle -- all of whom need the work? "You'd like to play all four quarterbacks," coach Mike McCarthy said. "That would be the intent going into the game."

Eric Berry is absent from practice again as the Chiefs begin their final training camp practice in the heavy rain in St. Joseph, Mo. This makes five straight practices that Berry has missed. The Chiefs have described his absences as due to a heel injury.

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said LG Andrew Norwell (calf), DE Dawuane Smoot (foot), and DT Eli Ankou (knee) are the only players who will not practice against Minnesota on Wednesday and Thursday and play in Saturday's game. Other than the suspended Jalen Ramsey and Dante Fowler, of course.

Saquon Barkley at practice in Detroit but not in pads. He's standing around watching as the Giants run some plays.

Bucs kicker Chandler Catanzaro tells me he "feels fine" after those two preseason misses and has made 95 percent of his kicks between the offseason program, camp and preseason. The Bucs have gone through eight kickers since 2009, tied with the Bills, Bengals and Eagles for most in the NFL in that span.

Jay Gruden said the release of Orlando Scandrick was related to the emergence of young corners.

Matt Patricia said a family friend growing up was the widow of former New York Giants Hall of Famer Steve Owen and that she would show him some Giants stuff she would be sent when he was a kid. Wouldn't say whether or not he was a Giants or 49ers fan growing up. Just says he's a Detroit Lions fan now.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Matt Patricia won't answer any questions about possibly going to the Giants instead of the Lions or if he's thought at all of what might have been had he ended up in New York instead of Detroit.

Jets rookie report: Round 1.) QB Sam Darnold. As advertised. If he doesn't open as the starter, his stay on the bench won't be long. 3.) DE Nathan Shepherd. Has a chance to win a starting job. Former small-school star has displayed impressive traits, but there will be growing pains. 4.) TE Chris Herndon. One of the bright spots in camp, but he's been sidelined for a few days with an undisclosed injury. Has a chance to make an impact, but needs to get on the field. 6.) CB Parry Nickerson. Good start, but early hamstring injury has derailed his progress. 6.) DT Foley Fatukasi. Dude is strong. Could he make injured NT Steve McLendon expendable? 6.) RB Trent Cannon. Probably needs a red-shirt year. Exciting speed, but still raw. Catching punts a problem.

The Redskins have released veteran corner Orlando Scandrick, a source confirmed. The NFL Network first reported the news. Scandrick was signed in the offseason and had worked as a starting corner opposite Josh Norman. The move signals two things: They have confidence in second year Fabian Moreau to cover in the slot and in Quinton Dunbar to start opposite Norman. Also, they've been pleased with rookies Greg Stroman and Danny Johnson.
