“Cam will continue to participate virtually in team activities until Thursday, August 26 when he returns to the club.”

Dak Prescott’s injury status: When will the Cowboys quarterback return?

The Dallas Cowboys have been concerned about franchise quarterback Dak Prescott’s health after he suffered a shoulder injury during training camp last month.
The quarterback has a latissimus strain, according to an MRI, and might miss the team’s season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on September 9th.
But, the Cowboys received positive news about their quarterback’s health after a second MRI.
Prescott’s shoulder is “healing well,” and he might play in preseason, according to ESPN’s Todd Archer. Prescott’s shoulder is “healing well,” and the quarterback could return to practice soon, according to Archer.
Prescott threw for the third time before the Cowboys’ preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals, and he didn’t feel any pain in his shoulder.
The Cowboys had put him on the shelf for two weeks to ensure he recovered fully from his shoulder ailment.
Prescott merely did it as a precaution, as he wanted to make sure he was totally ready for the 2021 NFL season.
If he had sustained a shoulder issue during the regular season, the Cowboys star says he would have played through the discomfort.

Prescott will return to practice this week in preparation for the Cowboys’ next preseason game on August 29th against the Houston Texans.
Dak Prescott is looking forward to getting some preseason play under his belt before the Cowboys go to Raymond James Stadium in Week 1 of the 2021 NFL season to face the reigning Super Bowl champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Prescott had a fantastic season in 2020 until suffering a horrific ankle injury in Week 5 against the New York Giants.
Despite missing 11 games, the Cowboys signed Prescott to a four-year, $160 million contract extension, reaffirming his status as the franchise quarterback. Comeback Player of the Year 2021 Candidates: [?

The Cowboys are favorites to win the NFC East, and if Prescott can play at the level he did before his injury last season, they might go all the way in the playoffs.

Kawakami: Five takeaways from the 49ers’ first practice, including Dee Ford’s presence, quarterback enthusiasm, and more.

It was worth a double take during the team’s first training-camp practice on Wednesday, and I’m sure I wasn’t the only one at 49ers headquarters.Wait, was that Dee Ford running around out there?
With his 55 jersey and helmet on, he appears sprightly, animated, and possibly within a few weeks of playing in an NFL game for the first time in almost a year, and certainly the first time he has been near a live practice in much longer?
Well, it was. And nearby, bookend defensive end Nick Bosa, who appeared to be close to game speed, was also limited to individual drills and side work.
That is to say, it’s as explosive as hell.
So there they were: Bosa and Ford, who were both wiped out for almost all of 2020, bringing with them the majority of the 49ers’ fearsome pass rush, back in practice gear and enough to get 49ers people thinking about a return to defensive dominance.Kyle Shanahan, did you steal a few glimpses at Bosa and Ford working with blocking sleds and other specific sessions during other drills?
“A little bit,” Shanahan said after practice on Wednesday.
“I took a couple of looks.” Certainly, Bosa’s recovery from his ACL tear in September has always been more certain than Ford’s back/neck issue.
Bosa was expected to return in Week 1 at the very least.
Last season, Ford’s situation was hazy, with many of us assuming that such a difficult and long-term injury would lead to his eventual release.

Rick Dennison, a Vikings assistant, will return to the team.

After reaching an deal with Minnesota to serve as senior offensive advisor, assistant coach Rick Dennison will return to the Vikings, the organization announced on Tuesday.
The Vikings also announced that Phil Rauscher will take over as offensive line coach and Ben Steele will serve as an offensive line assistant coach.
Dennison is no longer with the club, according to a source who told The Athletic last week that he refused to obtain the COVID-19 vaccine.
Dennison, who is still under contract, is thought to be the first NFL position coach to resign because he refused to be vaccinated.
Tier 1 individuals, such as coaches, are required to receive the vaccine.
Vaccination is not required, however unvaccinated athletes are subjected to tougher standards during training camp and during the season.
Tier 1 individuals, except athletes, should be vaccinated, according to the NFL, unless they have a medical or religious exemption.
Workers who decline immunization for any reason will not be eligible for Tier 1 status and will be unable to work with players directly.
Dennison has won three Super Bowls with the New York Jets, Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, Houston Texans, and Denver Broncos during his 25-year NFL coaching tenure.

Broncos LB preview: Will Von Miller’s comeback be enough for a team that hasn’t changed much in the offseason?

It didn’t take long for new Broncos general manager George Paton and coach Vic Fangio to realize they had similar approaches to building a top-flight defense.
“In this league — Vic can tell you better than I can — you need pressure and you need cover players,” Paton said shortly after joining Denver earlier this year.
“If you look at the good defenders across the league, you’ll notice that they can rush the quarterback and cover.”
“The advantages of a rush-and-cover method may be evident, but maintaining that balance in the NFL is proving more difficult than ever.”
The ball is erupting at a faster rate.
On the field, there are more receivers.
