Carlos Santana went 1-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored against the Yankees on Thursday.

Santana has now hit safely in seven of his last eight games as he continues an uphill battle to get back to a respectable batting average. He is now slashing .208/.349/.391 with 14 home runs and 36 RBI through 289 at-bats and remains a solid source of power form the catcher position, at least for the rest of this season. However, if his production doesn't improve in 2015 and he loses his catcher eligibility, he may find himself on the waiver wire outside of deep league formats, even if his power remains consistent. ANALYST: Matthew Beck

Saints tackle Terron Armstead has left practice on Monday.

Armstead was not seen leaving the practice field, so his absence is open for speculation at this point. The third-year player has started 16 games for the Saints, including 14 last season. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Bears WR Kevin White not practicing with the team again on Monday.

White has been sitting out of practice after arriving to camp. No injury news to report on the rookie wideout, but he should have a nice fantasy season behind Alshon Jeffrey in Chaicago. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Packers guard Josh Sitton is back with the starters after coming off an injury.

Sitton is returning from a toe injury and is hoping to get some full-time practice going. As of now, he remains mostly a spectator while the Packers open up camp. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Raiders WR Kenbrell Thompkins is on the roster bubble and needs to make more plays to make team.

Thompkins was cut last season and was quickly picked up by the Raiders for his speed and his ability to get down the field. However, his main drawback is that he doesn't make the big play when called upon; thus, his value diminishes greatly. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Giants GM Jerry Reese has finally talked to Jason Pierre-Paul.

The two have not spoken since JPP's unfortunate accident on July 4th. He still has not signed his franchise tender and can only sing with the Giants for this year, if at all. As of now, nobody knows whether or not Pierre-Paul will be healthy enough to play even when he does sign a contract. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Raiders running back Michael Dyer impressing at camp.

Dyer has an uphill battle going against Latavius Murray for playing time, but that isn't stopping him. With an impressive start, Trent Richardson is on the outside looking in on making the squad. Dyer will be a rookie out of the University of Louisville. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Update: Bengals defensive lineman Michael Johnson (knee) is expected to be out for 4 weeks.

The new timetable puts Johnson back to practice right before the beginning of the season. Johnson was cut by the Buccaneers, just after recently signing a big deal, but went back to Cincinnati in hope of reviving his career. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Broncos have signed WR Corbin Louks.

Louks has yet to make an impact at the NFL level, meaning he hasn't seen game action. The Broncos have added him for depth at the wide out position. Analysis: Rob Trayah

CB Quinten Rollins (hamstring) passed his physical and is taking part in his first practice of camp.

Rollins was selected in the second-round this year by the Packers and will look to contribute at the corner position for Green Bay. He was drafted out of Miami (OH) University who was named 2014 MAC Defensive Player of the Year and first-team All-MAC. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Ravens S Matt Elam has a torn biceps, and is expected to miss the season.

Elam was a first round pick back in 2013 and was getting starts at the safety position. He had started 27 games in his first two seasons with 127 combined tackles and one interception. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Chiefs have released DL Jerel Worthy.

Worthy will be in line to find some new work after being cut by the Chiefs. He was signed last year to the practice squad after leaving Green Bay. The former second round picks has yet to live up to any expectations playing just 16 games and having 11 total tackles. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Patriots have claimed G Harland Gunn off waivers.

Gunn will look to fight for a spot on the 53-man roster after being cut from the Falcons. He spent his first three years in Atlanta with 13 total starts. Analysis: Rob Trayah
