Unfortunately, with real NFL football comes real NFL injuries that can have a real impact on our fantasy football rankings. Let’s start out our NFL camp news by quickly hitting on some of the notable players to either start camp on the unable-to-perform list or get injured early on in practices.


NFL Injury Report

Ryan Jensen, C TB - The starting center for the Buccaneers was carted off with what appears to be a left knee injury. Would be a big loss to not have the Pro Bowler

Justyn Ross, WR KC - Justyn Ross, notably trying to play despite a congenital spinal issue, was put on season-ending IR after foot surgery.

John Metchie, WR HOU - John Metchie reported himself that he was diagnosed with Leukemia and is likely to miss the entire 2022 season.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB KC - the runningback was activated for day 1 of camp

NFL Training Camp Updates

In this section, we’ll hit on anything interesting coming out of team’s camps that might help you win your fantasy leagues.

Veteran Julio Jones has landed in Tampa Bay to be the third wide receiver along with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Russell Gage stans are in shambles.

Deshaun Watson got most of the first ream in reps in practice as the brass in Cleveland continues to bury their head in the sand regarding the inevitable suspension.

Evan Engram hit camp in mid-season form, managing to have notable drops in back-to-back days.

A.J. Brown wanted a new contract and the Eagles traded for him and gave him $100 million dollars. So obviously fellow wide receivers Deebo Samuel and DK Metcalf from the same draft class are also holding out for new contracts. Can you guess which of them uses the same agency as AJ Brown to represent them? (spoiler - it’s both of them). 

And of course, let's not forget that Aaron Rodgers showed up to camp doing his best Cameron Poe impression.
