Saturday's NFL training camp injury and roster news

The 2020 regular season is just around the corner, and NFL Network has you covered with wall-to-wall training camp coverage each day starting at 10 a.m. ET. Follow along here as we keep up with all the news, injuries and transactions of the day.

  • Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick left practice early after learning that his mother passed away, according to head coach Brian Flores. There is no time frame for his return to the team, Flores said. Fitzpatrick had recently left camp to spend some final moments with her, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
  • The New York Jets are expected to sign veteran free agent wide receiver Donte Moncrief once he passes COVID-19 protocols, according to Rapoport. The former Colts starter spent last season in Carolina and Pittsburgh and is expected to provide depth to a depleted Jets' wide-receiving corps. Wide receiver Jeff Smith suffered a shoulder sprain but tests ruled out a more significant injury, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported. The former Boston College quarterback could end up missing a week or two, Pelissero added. Fellow wide receivers Breshad Perriman (knee) and Denzel Mims (hamstring) did not practice Saturday.
  • Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson confirmed left tackle Andre Dillard suffered a torn biceps and will undergo season-ending surgery. Pederson said Jason Peters, Jordan Mailata, Matt Pryor and Jack Driscoll are all options to replace Dillard. In addition, offensive tackle Lane Johnson is day-to-day with a lower body injury, according to Pederson. Peters is seeking a pay increase if he is moved to left tackle, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.
  • The Dolphins are trading linebacker Raekwon McMillan and a fifth-round pick in 2021 to the Las Vegas Raiders in exchange for a 2021 fourth-round selection, according to Garafolo. The two teams later confirmed the deal. McMillan was a 2017 second-round pick out of Ohio State who started 28 of 29 games over the last two seasons, contributing 177 tackles, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.
  • The Cleveland Browns added wide receiver Damion Willis to the 80-man roster and waived wide receiver D.J. Montgomery. Willis was originally signed by Cincinnati as an undrafted free agent last year and appeared in 10 games with two starts as a rookie.
  • The Atlanta Falcons announced defensive end Steven Means has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He joins Jaguars offensive lineman Ryan Pope as the only two players on the list.
  • Washington head coach Ron Rivera said rookie wide receiver Antonio Gandy-Golden suffered an undisclosed injury in Friday's practice, but that it wasn't serious.
  • Former Chiefs and Chargers defensive end Anthony Lanier is expected to sign with the New Orleans Saints, a source tells Rapoport.

  • The San Francisco 49ers announced they have signed tight end MarQueis Gray and offensive lineman Dakoda Shepley to one-year deals. Shepley spent last season with the CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders and was named the team's most outstanding rookie. In order to make room on the roster, the Niners waived offensive lineman Kofi Amichia and tight end Erik Swoope.
  • The Seattle Seahawks have signed wide receiver Paul Richardson to a one-year contract, sources tell Garafolo. After spending two seasons in Washington, Richardson returns to Seattle where he spent the first four seasons of his career.
