      Ballard (ankle) was carted out of practice Friday, Indianapolis Star writer Mike Chappell reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: It's too early to reach any overly gloomy conclusions, but the fact that a cart was involved would seem to imply that Ballard may be dealing with a sprain of some sort. We'll watch for updates on his condition.

      Lynch (ankle), as expected, was not present during the first day of Seahawks minicamp, John Boyle of the Everett Herald reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Lynch continues to seek a new deal from the Seahawks, and appears to be ready to sit out training camp until the team addresses the matter. Seattle appears willing to restructure the deal, but they don't seem eager to add money to a deal that was just finalized two years ago. Until the dispute is resolved, Robert Turbin and Christine Michael will see the majority of reps with the first-team offense during camp.

      Ivory returned to action Friday after he was limited by a sore hamstring in Thursday's practice, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Ivory's hamstring issue was downplayed as minor by Jets coach Rex Ryan, and the fact that he's back in action a day later reinforces that notion. He should be in line to see regular reps moving forward.

      The shoulder injury that hampered Eifert this spring has fully healed, ESPN.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: With fellow TE Jermaine Gresham dealing with a back injury, Eifert is in line to see added training camp reps and he's off to a good start, with the report noting that the 2013 first-rounder caught a few "attention-grabbing receptions" Thursday.

      Lattimore (knee/hamstring) did not practice when training camp opened Thursday due to lingering knee and hamstring injuries, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Lattimore - who was redshirted his entire rookie season - was expected to enter 2014 healthy and be a cog in the 49ers' revamped backfield, but it appears that his devastating knee injury in 2012 and the recent hamstring injury he sustained this off-season have not healed properly yet.

      Thompkins has looked sharp early on in training camp, the Providence Journal reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: As part of a crowded Patriots' wideout mix that also includes Julian Edelman, Aaron Dobson, Brandon LaFell and Josh Boyce, Thompkins has generally flown under the radar this offseason. However, with Dobson not practicing, Thompkins has a chance to see added reps at outside receiver in camp, and the early returns are solid, with the second-year wideout having drawn the praise of QB Tom Brady.

      Greene (knee) is expected to practice with the Titans on Saturday, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Greene underwent a minor knee procedure this offseason, but the team will exercise caution in working him back into the mix. His knee hasn't shown any swelling to date, but the Titans don't plan on pushing him too hard early in camp. Once training camp heats up, Greene should feel a strong push from rookie Bishop Sankey, who will look to cut into his carries this season.

      Gronkowski (knee) practiced Friday, but acknowledged that he wasn't at 100 percent, Shalise Young of the Boston Globe reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Gronkowski still didn't participate in any drills that involved a live defender, but his presence on the field for the second straight day is certainly encouraging. The 25-year-old hopes to return to Pro Bowl caliber form in 2014, and hopes to be cleared for 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills before the end of camp.

      McGrath, who was absent from practice Thursday, is reportedly considering retirement, ESPN.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The 26-year-old is coming off a season in which he recorded 26 catches for 302 yards with a pair of TDs, but in the training camp context of a healthier Kansas City tight corps (which also includes Travis Kelce, Anthony Fasano and Demetrius Harris) McGrath is no lock to secure a roster spot, in any case.

      Shorts left Friday's practice with a hamstring injury, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Although the ailment caused an early exit for Shorts, Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union later reported that the wideout was walking around without a wrap or ice. Just like last week's calf tightness, it doesn't sound like the current hamstring issue is something to be overly concerned about moving forward.
