A.J. Green running again at Bengals practice
Bengals receiver A.J. Green has had a brutal run of injuries that caused him to miss half of the 2018 season, all of the 2019 season and a lot of training camp in 2020. But he was able to get a little work in on Monday.

Billy Price still trying to find footing in year 3 with Bengals
Price started 10 games at center for the Bengals in 2018, but did not play up to expectations. However, he was a rookie and dealt with injuries -- such as a foot ailment that he suffered in just his second professional game -- and it often takes longer for things to click for offensive linemen. But just the fact Price missed games due to an injury was news considering he is the all-time iron man at Ohio State, holding the school record with 55 consecutive starts (did not miss a game in his career)

Bengals training camp: C.J. Uzomah stunned at Joe Burrow’s command

Joe Burrow appears to have two favorite weapons early in training camp
Well, it didn’t take long for the rave reviews of Joe Burrow to roll out of the Cincinnati Bengals’ training camp. Early reports indicate that the reigning Heisman has a good knowledge of the playbook, a tremendous command of the huddle, and more, although he has had shaky moments in the red-zone from time to time.

2020 NFL training camp's early winners and losers: Raiders rookies shining bright, A.J. Green can't get right
This was not about performance; Thomas settled into the Ravens' secondary last season with excellent play down the stretch. And the team has little depth at the safety position. This was not about money; the Ravens can expect a protracted fight to get some of Thomas' guarantees back.

Broncos' Vic Fangio doesn't 'give a damn' about fan attendance inconsistency
"I really don't give a damn about that," Broncos coach Vic Fangio said of any unfairness, per the team's official website. "If we can play in a stadium that's full, half-full, a third-full, home or away, we're happy. That shows progress with the COVID. Otherwise, I personally don't care, other than that I would like to see fans."

2020 NFL season: 1 pivotal rookie for each of the 32 teams
