Quick Rundown of Bulls in NFL Camps

Oakland Raiders:

Trevor Scott: Still coming back from Injury, not being able to work with the trainers during the lockout did not help him.

Trevor Scott very close to returning :"I was in the hurt locker for sure," he said. "I kept my nose to the grindstone, just get trying to think as positive as I could, but I'm feeling really good where I'm at right now. Just can't wait to get back out there."

Buffalo Bills:

Naaman Roosevelt: Roosevelt is having himself a pretty good Camp

QB Tyler Thigpen ran with the second team on Thursday night. His favorite target of the night was UB product Naaman Roosevelt. The two hooked up for a pair of touchdowns during red-zone work. -- WKBW

The bad news? The Bills seem to be signing a different free agent receiver every other day. Its fair to say that the worst Roosevelt will do, baring a serious injury, is the practice squad. But he may have an outside shot at the regular roster.

Domonic Cook: Had a very unfortunate camp, which finally ended with the knee injury

Bills Sign Waive DB Domonic Cook - Cook, meanwhile, is a defensive back out of the University at Buffalo that was expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a knee injury suffered in a camp practice earlier this week.

It's my understanding that if nobody picks Cook up off of waivers there is a shot he gets on the practice squad when his knee heals.

Indianapolis Colts:

Jamey Richard: Is running with the second team, that probably where he will stay.

Q AND A WITH: JAMEY RICHARD The important thing is you have to do the little things to obtain the bigger goals. It is important to worry about taking baby steps and do the little things first, worrying about game-by-game and the big things will take care of themselves.

Mike Newton: Has an uphill climb if he wants to make the roster rather than the practice squad. So far he is aking his presence known

2011 Colts Training Camp:  Mike Newton has looked decent at safety, picking off a few passes in practice.

Green Bay Packers:

James Starks: Is in a battle with Ryan Grant for the feature back spot. So far Starks is holding his own

Training Camp Observations 8-4 James Starks seemed to be featured much more than Ryan Grant and had a huge play running right through Nick Collins.

Dallas Cowboys:

Josh Thomas: Some injuries have helped Thomas get looks with the first team. Dallas Coaches like what they see.

Cowboys' Jason Garrett on Josh Thomas  "He's responded well and he seems to have bounced back anytime there's some adversity or things don't go well. He steps right back up there and keeps battling and keeps competing," Garrett said. "That's a great thing for all players but particularly when you play corner in this league, so we like what we've seen so far but obviously he has a long way to go."

Washington RedSkins:

Davonte Shannon: Shannon is doing everything he can to raise his stock

Shannon is perceived by many to be an in the box safety, not someone you want out there in every passing situation. But he is showing well against the pass.

Training Camp Practice Report: Aug. 4 Back in 11-on-11, undrafted rookie Davonte Shannon gets an interception on deep throw down right sideline. The pass was thrown by Kellen Clemens.

New York Jets:

Drew Willy: Trying to earn the third spot on the Jets Roster. Its going to be an uphill battle. The Jets resigned Mark Brunell and now Drew sites at fourth on most peoples depth chars behind Greg McElroy

Report: New York Jets to Resign Mark Brunell - Mark Brunell, who was released on Friday, expected to re-sign with Jets tomorrow. On the one hand, the only quarterbacks the Jets currently have to back up Mark Sanchez are Greg McElroy and Drew Willy. On the other hand, I am not convinced Brunell is better than either of them.
