Today's injury report: Left tackle D.J. Humphries (hamstring) was expected to "get extended work" on Wednesday afternoon. Outside linebacker Jarvis Jones is still out with a back injury. Coach Bruce Arians said the first epidural Jones received did not work. "We may have to do another one," he said. Linebacker Philip Wheeler has been out with a foot injury. Arians said Wheeler is close and could be out for another week. Arians feels like linebacker Josh Bynes' hamstring injury is setting him back. "He flashed and like most guys you get off the street, they think they're in shape but they're not in football shape." Outside linebacker Markus Golden has a sore foot.

Today's injury report at camp: Linebacker Anthony Hitchens suffered a bloody nose after getting hit in the face but was able to return without any issue. Rookie cornerback Marquez White (hamstring) returned to practice on a limited basis and recorded an interception. Defensive end David Irving missed his second straight day with an ankle injury.

Play of the day at camp: Cole Beasley had as productive a day as he has had all camp, but he might have made one of the catches of camp too. In seven on seven drills, Beasley was working the back line of the end zone and Dak Prescott threw behind him intentionally away from the defender. Beasley was able to twist backward, make the catch going to the ground and keep his feet inbounds.

Overheard at camp: Executive vice president Stephen Jones said linebacker Jaylon Smith will be on a "pitch count," of sorts when he makes his debut Saturday against the Indianapolis Colts. Jones said the Cowboys like everything Smith has done in training camp but the team wants to be smart with him as he plays his first game since the 2016 Fiesta Bowl.

Trumaine Johnson, on why he has put it on himself to match up against Sammy Watkins in camp: "He's no regular receiver. That's Sammy Watkins. ... You gotta like competition, and I love competition. So of course I'm going to go out there and match up with the best guys."

New Rams WR Sammy Watkins got a lot more involved today. Made a couple of nice connections with Jared Goff towards the middle of the field, and another one about 20 yards near the far side. Trumaine Johnson was constantly matched up against Watkins. At one point, he picked Goff as the underneath guy in zone coverage. Said Goff on Watkins: "He's been sharper than I expected. ... He's been on it; he's been sharp."

Rams coach Sean McVay is learning a little bit more about Sammy Watkins every day. "You can feel his speed and his juice down the field." Watkins caught several intermediate throws from Jared Goff today and was constantly matched up with Trumaine Johnson.

Rams QB Jared Goff struggled during 11-on-11 work the last couple days, throwing several interceptions. "I have to be smarter than that; take care of the ball a little bit better."

Jets LB Lorenzo Mauldin appeared in a Manhattan courtroom Wednesday morning for his scheduled arraignment on a misdemeanor assault charge, but there was a delay because prosecutors weren't ready to file paperwork, according to reports. No new court date was set. Mauldin is accused of punching a 22-year-old Queens man in the face during a nightclub confrontation on April 2. After court in the morning, Mauldin returned to the Jets and practiced.

Who's the best route runner in the McCaffrey family? Max McCaffrey said that's still to be determined.

Overheard at Raiders Camp: Assistant head coach/Defense John Pagano, on first-round pick Gareon Conley, "We'd love to have him out there right now...until then, I think he got the reps he needed in OTAs. His mental game has picked up tremendously. He's always asking questions...he's getting those mental reps. When he's able to come back, he'll be at a fast level. Injuries are part of the game, you deal with it and you just have to make sure, as a rookie, you're taking those mental reps."

OVERHEARD: "Tre' just likes to talk in general, which is OK," said Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn, when asked if the secondary was communicating more on Wednesday. Of course, Lynn was referring to new safety Tre' Boston, who's always talking and has become one of the vocal leaders of the defensive backfield.
