Dolphins DE Jordan reinstated by NFL

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) Miami Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan's suspension ended just as training camp began.

Jordan was reinstated by the NFL on a conditional basis after sitting out last season for his latest violation of the league's substance abuse policy. Commissioner Roger Goodell notified Jordan on Friday, when the Dolphins held their first practice.


Injured Jets CB Revis still day to day

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis says there's no timetable for when he will fully practice as he continues to recover from offseason wrist surgery.

Revis was injured early last season and played through a torn ligament in his right wrist that required surgery in March. He participated in some individual drills during minicamp and now training camp but has watched from the sideline during 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills.


Lions sign CB Slay to 4-year extension

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) The Detroit Lions have signed cornerback Darius Slay to a contract extension through the 2020 season.

Rivera says Newton can 'even get better'

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) Cam Newton's stellar 2015 season helped him become the first Carolina Panthers player to earn NFL MVP honors.

WR Cruz a full-go at Giants practice

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Victor Cruz is back a lot sooner than anyone expected.

After missing all of last season and being limited to six games over the past two, the New York Giants receiver was a full-go as the team held its first practice at training camp Friday under new coach Ben McAdoo.


Norman: Beckham's swipe means 'nothing'

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Now that they're in the same division, Josh Norman and Odell Beckham Jr. can start talking trash again.

After Beckham told GQ Magazine that his catch made the new Washington Redskins cornerback "relevant," Norman responded to the New York Giants receiver on Friday with some amusement. On the second day of Redskins camp, Norman chuckled at the mention of Beckham and his comments and brushed them off.


Bengals TE Eifert still wearing boot

CINCINNATI (AP) Tyler Eifert pointed to a crescent-shaped scar surrounding the ball on his left ankle. That little spot is sidelining the Cincinnati Bengals tight end for training camp, and maybe more.

He had surgery two months ago to repair a partial ligament tear that he suffered during the Pro Bowl. He was in a cast for six weeks and has to wear a protective boot for at least another week.


S Berry doesn't report to Chiefs camp

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) Eric Berry arrived at Chiefs training camp before he was required to last season, so eager was the All-Pro safety to get back on the field after undergoing treatment for cancer.

He wasn't seen reporting with the rest of the veterans on Friday.


WR Nicks joins Saints at training camp

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) Veteran NFL receiver Hakeem Nicks decided this offseason that persistently lobbying New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton for a job gave him the best chance at salvaging his career.

The 28-year-old Nicks, who participated in his first practice of Saints training camp on Friday, is coming off several seasons in which his production dipped far below the standard he set early in his career with the New York Giants. But Nicks sounds confident that the prolific offense designed by Payton, and executed by quarterback Drew Brees, provides the perfect platform for his resurgence.
