With NFL training camps underway, the league is abuzz with position battles, injury news and rookies making an immediate impact.

Each day, provides the latest rumours, reports and speculation from around the NFL beat.

Back in Business

After missing close to a week of training camp, Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin returned to practice on Saturday.

The 23-year-old suffered a bone bruise on his knee, which forced him to miss four days of camp.

Benjamin, the Panthers first-round draft pick this year is expected to start immediately this season across from veteran wide out Jerricho Cotchery.

No 'Shon?

The Miami Dolphins may be without running back Knowshon Moreno for the entire preseason as he continues to recover from arthroscopic surgery.

When asked by the Miami Herald if he would be able to appear in at least one preseason game in his first season with the Dolphins, Moreno made no promises.

"I don't know. I don't know. I really don't even know. I just want to take each day one at a time. They have a schedule for me and they're just going to tell me every day what I have to do, and I just go out there and do it."

Moreno was initially scheduled to miss four to five weeks, however he is now into his sixth week of recovery and remains on the physically unable to perform list.

Moreno was signed in the offseason by the Dolphins, after reaching the Super Bowl with the Denver Broncos in 2013. Moreno rushed for 1,038 yards and touchdowns in 16 games with the Dolphins last season.

In his absence, Lamar Miller is taking added snaps as he competes for the starting tailback role.

Not a Good Turn

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Marquise Goodwin suffered a hamstring injury on Friday, putting his status for Sunday's Hall of Fame game against the New York Giants.

Goodwin caught 17 passes for 283 yards and three touchdowns in his rookie season with the Bills last year. He was drafted in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

The Bills currently have 12 wide receivers on their roster, but will likely only take five into the regular season.

Starting Cyril?

Rookie offensive lineman Cyril Richardson has been taking snaps with the Buffalo Bills first-team offence at right guard.

Richardson was drafted in the fifth round of this year's draft by the Bills after playing college football at Baylor.

Richardson is competing with Chris Hairston and 2013 starter Kraig Urbik for the right guard position.

The Bills allowed 48 sacks last season.
