GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has returned to practice after missing nearly a week with COVID-19.

Murray was in full pads for Saturday's scrimmage in front of fans at State Farm Stadium. Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Murray had experienced some mild symptoms but was able to attend meetings virtually during the quarterback's time away.

Kingsbury said Murray would be limited at Saturday's practice but wanted to be on the field with his teammates.

It's been an eventful camp for Murray, who signed a $230.5 million, five-year deal just before practices started. He then dealt with the fallout after a strange addendum was discovered in the deal, which called for four hours of “independent study” during game weeks.

Murray passionately defended his work ethic a few days later and the Cardinals eventually removed the addendum from the contract.

Titans wide receiver Robert Woods and cornerback Caleb Farley worked together on their own individual drill Monday during a special teams period at training camp. In full pads. No knee braces protecting repaired left ACLs. It’s a very welcome sight for the Titans. Both Woods and Farley have made impressive recoveries from the torn ACLs that ended their seasons last year. It's a welcome sight for the Titans with both expected to start this season. Woods tore his left ACL at practice Nov. 12 while with the Rams. Farley tore his Oct. 18 in his first start.

The Tennessee Titans have placed center Daniel Munyer on injured reserve and signed offensive lineman Willie Wright and defensive back Terrell Bonds. The Titans also waived injured defensive back Chris Williamson. The 6-foot-3 Wright was a three-year starter at Tulsa. He spent the 2019 season on Cleveland’s practice squad and 2020 on Atlanta’s practice squad. Wright was released by Chicago last week. Bonds played 10 games in the USFL this spring with one interception. He spent much of his first two NFL seasons on Baltimore's practice squad.

Tony Boselli looked out at all the teal-colored jerseys in the crowd and screamed: “Duuuuval!” Finally, the Jacksonville Jaguars have a player in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The first pick in Jaguars history, Boselli was among eight members of the Class of 2022 enshrined Saturday at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium. The Jaguars played the Las Vegas Raiders in the NFL preseason opener Thursday night, so No. 71 Boselli jerseys filled the seats. A five-time Pro Bowl selection and three-time All-Pro left tackle, Boselli saw his career cut short by injuries. But his dominant performance earned him a gold jacket. He shouted the Jacksonville fans’ rallying cry, the name of their county, during his speech.

Bills cornerback Kaiir Elam isn't a big fan of being referred to as a rookie. Buffalo's first-round draft pick is setting his sights on a more notable label in being called a starter in Week 1. The opportunity for that to happen is real with the Bills potentially opening the season needing to fill both starting positions. Tre'Davious White's playing status remains uncertain as he continues recovering from a left knee injury, while the Bills have another hole to fill following Levi Wallace's departure in free agency. Elam has spent the entire offseason working with the starting unit opposite Dane Jackson, who filled in for White to close last season.

The Denver Broncos have signed two free agents after placing starting wide receiver Tim Patrick and backup running back Damarea Crockett on injured reserve. Patrick and Crockett tore ACLs at practice Tuesday. The Broncos replaced Patrick with third-year receiver Darrius Shepherd. He played two seasons in Green Bay when Broncos first-year coach Nathaniel Hackett was the Packers' offensive coordinator. The Broncos replaced Crockett with rookie Max Borghi. He's a native of Arvada, Colorado, and starred at Washington State.

Coach Sean McVay says Matthew Stafford’s continuing elbow pain is abnormal for a football player, and the Los Angeles Rams are trying to determine whether it will hamper their starting quarterback in the regular season. Stafford has been throwing in individual drills and 7-on-7 setups while skipping the full-team portions of the defending Super Bowl champions’ training camp practices at UC Irvine. Stafford had an unspecified injection in his elbow during the offseason, and he reported feeling ongoing pain in the joint last month after not doing any serious throwing in the Rams’ offseason program.

Los Angeles Rams receiver Van Jefferson needs knee surgery and could miss the defending Super Bowl champions’ regular-season opener. Rams coach Sean McVay says Jefferson will have the “minor” knee surgery Tuesday. Jefferson will need at least a few weeks to recover, putting in doubt his availability for the Rams’ opener against Buffalo on Sept. 8 at SoFi Stadium. Jefferson is heading into his third NFL season after starting all 17 games and all four playoff games last year for the Rams. He had 50 receptions for 802 yards and six touchdowns last season.

New Orleans Saints safety Tyrann Mathieu reported for training camp and participated in practice drills after initially being excused to attend to what the team described as a personal matter. Mathieu returned Wednesday after he missed the first six practices of camp. The offseason addition of Mathieu to the Saints’ secondary was met with much fanfare in New Orleans. He grew up in the city and played in high school there before starring in college at LSU. The 30-year-old, nine-year NFL veteran agreed to a three-year, $33 million free-agent contract with the Saints in early May.

Zach Wilson knows being an NFL quarterback in New York means performing in front of a large media presence and massive fan base with every throw on the field scrutinized. The soon-to-be 23-year-old Jets QB has a simple way to deal with it all. He deletes all the social media apps from his phone before training camp. He says staying away from social media during camp and the regular season keeps his mind on the team rather than the distractions off the field. Wilson buzzed on the gossip pages during the offseason for rumors about his dating life. His mother Lisa is also a popular personality on Instagram.
