The San Francisco 49ers moved wide receiver Bruce Ellington from the active/non-football injury list to the active roster and signed tight end and long snapper Kyle Nelson to a one-year contract on Friday. Ellington was selected by the 49ers in the fourth round of the NFL Draft in May. The 22-year-old played in 38 games in three years at South Carolina and finished his college career with 106 catches for 1,586 yards and 16 touchdowns. Nelson rejoins the 49ers after previous stints with the team during offseason workouts in 2013 and a portion of training camp in 2012.

Lurie spreads the credit for Eagles' success (The Associated Press)

While Chip Kelly gets plenty of accolades for taking the Philadelphia Eagles from worst-to-first in his first year in the NFL, owner Jeffrey Lurie spreads the credit. Lurie's decision to hire Kelly after firing Andy Reid following 14 seasons as coach quickly paid off when the Eagles won the NFC East title last year. The Eagles are clearly a team on the rise so expectations are higher than they've been since Terrell Owens arrived in 2004 to help Donovan McNabb snap a string of three straight losses in the NFC championship game. Getting better every day is my expectation.'' Lurie is entering his 20th season in Philadelphia.

Eagles plan to fly without WR Jackson (The SportsXchange)

Wednesday, 30 July 2014
One of the biggest questions hovering over the Eagles this summer is the impact of losing wide receiver DeSean Jackson, a top big-play threat in Philadelphia for the past several seasons. Jackson led the Eagles in receptions (82), receiving yards (1,332) and touchdown catches (nine) last season. While they let Jackson go, the Eagles not only get back Jeremy Maclin, who missed all of last season with a torn ACL after catching 258 passes in his first four seasons. They also spent two of their first three draft picks on wide receivers Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff.

It was a sight the New York Giants hoped they would never see. With about 10 minutes remaining in practice Tuesday, running back David Wilson was spotted walking off the field with head trainer Ronnie Barnes after suffering what coach Tom Coughlin described as a "burner." Wilson was just cleared for contact on July 21, the first day of training camp, after recovering from neck surgery. Wilson, whose neck issues first came to light in the Giants' Week 5 loss in Philadelphia last year, was placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Dolphins want more offense under new coordinator (The Associated Press)

Tuesday, 29 July 2014
The Miami Dolphins' fourth training camp practice had just ended Tuesday, and new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor stepped before a media throng to address the state of the offense, his voice hoarse from hollering. ''That's where we are.'' Lazor was hired to upgrade an offense that kept Miami out of the playoffs last year, and while players rave about the system he has installed, there is much work yet to be done. A search remains ongoing for starters at three offensive line positions, and it's unclear how quickly quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the rest of the unit can become comfortable with the new playbook. Most of all, he wants the offense operating at a faster tempo.

New York Giants running back David Wilson left Tuesday's practice with what coach Tom Coughlin described as a burner in his neck. Wilson, who returned to the field to start training camp six months after neck surgery, collided with teammates during a drill in the afternoon practice. Coughlin said the team is "praying" Wilson did not suffer a setback and was awaiting a detailed update from the Giants' training staff. The former first-round pick was expected to be prominent in the team's running back rotation this season, but the Giants planned for potential setbacks and signed Rashad Jennings, re-signed Peyton Hillis and invested a fourth-round pick in Boston College star Andre Williams.

Eagles OT Lane Johnson failed to clear prescribed meds with the team (NBC on Yahoo Sports)
User Rating: / 0
Tuesday, 29 July 2014
Your browser does not support iframes. Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson said his four-game suspension for using banned PEDs was the result of him taking a banned prescription drug that he neglected to report to the Eagles’ training staff. The NFL on Wednesday officially announced Johnson’s suspension, nearly a month after CSNPhilly.com Eagles insider Geoff Mosher reported it. Johnson, who started all 17 games at right tackle last year as a rookie first-round pick, will be suspended without pay for the Eagles’ first four regular-season games in 2014. He will miss games against the Jaguars, Colts, Redskins and 49ers.  Johnson would be eligible to play in the preseason game against the Jets on Aug. 28 but will be banned from the Eagles’ complex starting the next day. He is eligible to return to the active roster on Sept. 29, one day after the 49ers’ game. He is not allowed to participate in any team activities or even visit the team’s facility during the suspension. “In April while training, I mistakenly and foolishly put a prescribed medication in my body to help with a medical issue,” Johnson said in a prepared statement released by the Eagles. “I mistakenly failed to clear it with Eagles trainers and check the NFL list of banned substances. I am extremely sorry for this mistake and I will learn from it and be smarter in the future.” According to the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement, a first positive test for performance-enhancing drugs is a four-game suspension. Johnson is still scheduled to report to the NovaCare Complex on Friday for the start of training camp, and he’ll be allowed to participate in all preseason practices and preseason games. But the suspension will cost Johnson $116,470, which is four game-day checks, or 4/17ths of his $495,000 base salary for 2014. “We’re very disappointed to learn of his suspension,” the Eagles said in a statement. “We have spoken to Lane about the details of the suspension. He understood what he did wrong and took full responsibility. The key for him, however, is to learn from that mistake and move forward with his preparation for the 2014 season.” In Johnson’s absence, Allen Barbre is most likely to start at right tackle, although Matt Tobin and Dennis Kelly are also possible candidates. The Eagles used the same starting offensive line in all 17 games last year. “I would like to sincerely apologize to Mr. Lurie [owner Jeffrey], [general manager] Howie Roseman, coach [Chip] Kelly and his staff, my teammates and our amazing Philadelphia Eagles fans,” Johnson said. “This will be very hard on me to not be battling with my teammates for four games. But I will be ready and better than ever when I return.” Johnson is the sixth Eagle suspended by the NFL since the mid-1980s and the second suspended this year. Linebacker Jake Knott, a roster longshot who spent part of last year with the Eagles, has also been suspended for the first four games. Other Eagles suspended over the last 30 years: guard Ron Solt (four games in 1989, steroids), offensive tackle Bernard Williams (six games and ultimately entire career, 1995, marijuana), safety Matt Stevens (four games, 1997, steroids) and cornerback Joselio Hanson (four games, 2009, banned diuretic). - Reuben Frank, CSN Philly

Mark Sanchez says Philly fans are 'nicer' than New York fans? (updated) (Shutdown Corner)
User Rating: / 0
Tuesday, 29 July 2014
(Update: Sanchez may have actually said something a little different than what was initially implied. His clarification is below.) As gaffes go, Mark Sanchez has a high bar to clear to get past the Butt Fumble. But the former Jet and new Eagle gave it the ol' college try on Monday, offering up a quote that we're sure will follow him around. In discussing his new digs with Philadelphia, Sanchez offered up a direct assessment: "The fans are a lot nicer here." In addition to being the first time that the Philadelphia fans have been classified as nicer than anyone , this also seems a bit of misplaced frustration on Sanchez's part. Sure, he lost his job to injury and Geno Smith. And sure, he was unfairly reduced to a bit player in the let-Tim-Tebow-play debacle. But to rip the people who actually choose to root for the Jets? That's like kicking a puppy. Sanchez will be backing up Nick Foles, who's only coming off a career season, so it's possible Sanchez won't ever have to hear the gentle caresses of a Philly crowd. But Jets fans are a whole different story. When they're angry, you can hear them from orbit. The Eagles play the Jets at home in the fourth game of the preseason, and travel to New York to play the Giants in Week 17. We're certain Jets fans will be ready to show him just how nice they can be. Update: Sanchez clarified his comments on Twitter, saying he wasn't talking about Jets fans at all: pic.twitter.com/O2KkcgwOGb — Mark Sanchez (@Mark_Sanchez) July 29, 2014 ____ Jay Busbee is a writer for Yahoo Sports.

Monday's Sports In Brief (The Associated Press)

Tuesday, 29 July 2014
Embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling lost his attempt to block the $2 billion sale of the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. In allowing the deal to go forward, Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas sided with Sterling's estranged wife, Shelly Sterling, who negotiated the record sale after the NBA banned the 80-year-old billionaire for making offensive remarks about blacks. Shelly Sterling sought the probate judge's approval to ink the deal after taking over the family trust that owns the team because doctors found Donald Sterling had signs of Alzheimer's disease and couldn't manage his affairs. The judge said Shelly Sterling had negotiated a good deal and the removal of her husband as a co-trustee was in good faith and not part of a secret plan to seize the team.

Claude Humphrey wishes he could have made the Pro Football Hall of Fame ''a long time ago where I could have actually enjoyed it more.'' Even so, there's a bonus for Humphrey, the former standout defensive end for the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles. Now that he's 70, it's the perfect time for Humphrey's 12-year-old grandson to savor the honor with him. Humphrey's daughter, Cheyenne Humphrey-Robinson, will make the introductory speech at the ceremony. He won't think I'm telling him a lie.'' The young Robinson will learn Humphrey was one of the game's most feared pass rushers during a career that began in 1968 and spanned three decades, including the 1979-81 seasons in Philadelphia.
