Von Miller's presence was apparent while making his practice debut with his new team, the Buffalo Bills. Miller looked at home after previously acknowledging he was torn in leaving the Super Bowl champion Rams and the bright lights of Los Angeles for Buffalo. Miller spent his first practice grooving to music on the sideline, providing tips to his younger teammates while also bursting off the line to collapse the pocket in the non-padded sessions. The two-time defending AFC East champion Bills made a major splash by signing Miller to a six-year contract in March to add muscle to what had been a middling pass rush.

Trey Lance took the practice field this week for the San Francisco 49ers in a far different state than his rookie campaign. The nagging finger injury that limited him all last season has healed, his knowledge of the offense has grown and he has emerged as a leader now that he is set to take over for Jimmy Garoppolo as starting quarterback in San Francisco. After starting just two games as a rookie, Lance is set to take over the role he has been groomed for since San Francisco traded three first-round picks to draft him last year.

An enlarged spleen, a blood clot and a steady dose of blood thinners kept Vinny Curry off the football field last season. The defensive end was diagnosed by New York Jets team doctors with a rare blood disorder that required the removal of his spleen last July. He was hoping to return to the field at some point last season but developed a blood clot and needed to take blood thinners the next few months. The 33-year-old Curry is healthy now and his issues behind him. He's back on the football field and thankful to be with his teammates again.

She also says she felt frightened after an encounter with Watson, who told her he knew she didn't want anyone “messing” with her career. Watson is facing civil lawsuits by 22 women alleging various sexual acts during massages he received while playing for the Houston Texans. He has denied any wrongdoing.
