Ea­gles: Backup quar­ter­back Nate Sud­feld was back at prac­tice Sat­ur­day wear­ing an arm sling, one day af­ter surgery to repair a bro­ken left wrist. Car­di­nals: Ari­zona re­leased de­fen­sive end Dar­ius Philon, a day af­ter Mari­copa County jail records in­di­cate he was ar­rested and booked into jail on sus­pi­cion of ag­gra­vated as­sault with a deadly in­stru­ment. A Phoenix po­lice spokes­woman, Sgt. Mag­gie Cox, con­firmed Philon had been ar­rested, but de­clined to pro­vide fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, re­fer­ring a reporter to court doc­u­ments that were not im­me­di­ately avail­able. Pack­ers: Sec­ond-year line­backer Oren Burks is be­lieved to have a torn pec­toral mus­cle, a source told ESPN. More tests are sched­uled to de­ter­mine the course of ac­tion, an­other source told the net­work, but the Pack­ers' de­fense has lost the starter at least tem­po­rar­ily. Bills: Buf­falo shuf­fled cor­ner­backs by sign­ing vet­eran Cap­tain Mun­ner­lyn and plac­ing E.J. Gaines on in­jured re­serve. The Bills also signed de­fen­sive tackle Rod­er­ick Young and of­fen­sive line­man Demetrius Rhaney. They freed up ros­ter spots by re­leas­ing of­fen­sive line­man Nico Si­ra­gusa and plac­ing de­fen­sive tackle Robert Thomas on in­jured re­serve due to a knee in­jury.

Jaguars: Jack­sonville doesn't ex­pect left tackle Cam Robin­son and re­ceiver Mar­qise Lee to be ready for the sea­son opener. Robin­son, a sec­ond-round draft pick in 2017, tore the an­te­rior cru­ci­ate lig­a­ment in his left knee last Septem­ber. Lee, who led the team in re­cep­tions in 2017, tore sev­eral lig­a­ments in his left knee last Au­gust.
