Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski told reporters he absorbed minor contact Monday when he participated in team drills for the first time. Coming off an ACL injury, Gronk said he's had no setbacks and plans to play a full 16-game season.
Bengals rookie cornerback Darqueze Dennard was forced out of Saturday's preseason game against the Jets with a hip injury.
The No. 24 overall pick in this year's draft suffered the injury in the first half. He was ruled out for the remainder of the game and will likely be further evaluated moving forward. The team has not revealed the extent of the injury.
As the Bengals prepare to open training camp this week, they placed nine players on the Physically Unable to Perform list and another three on the Non-Football Injury list. All 12 players can come off both lists at any time.
