Zach Wilson took the field at MetLife Stadium for the first time since last season and put together another solid practice. That’s promising news for the New York Jets and their second-year quarterback. Wilson was unofficially 12 of 19 including four drops by receivers for 100 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the scrimmage. The practice was a leadup to the Jets’ first preseason game next Friday night at Philadelphia. New York also hosted free agent offensive tackle Duane Brown, who attended the practice.

Matthew Stafford downplayed the significance of his elbow injury after showing just how little it’s holding him back in practice with the Los Angeles Rams. Stafford participated extensively in the Rams’ latest workout at UC Irvine on Saturday, making deep throws and building chemistry with his teammates in what was likely his most extensive work of training camp. Afterward, Stafford said his right elbow condition is merely “irritating,” and not a threat to his ability to lead the Super Bowl champions’ title defense. Coach Sean McVay raised eyebrows Thursday when he said Stafford’s injury was “abnormal” for a quarterback.

The rebound the Minnesota Vikings are seeking on defense won’t amount to much without a consistent effectiveness by Dalvin Tomlinson and Harrison Phillips at the interior positions. They're run-stoppers first. They'll need to provide a pass-rushing presence, too. The current NFL demands more from interior defensive linemen than simply plugging a gap. Phillips came to Minnesota after leaving Buffalo as a free agent. Tomlinson made his Vikings debut in 2021.

The Detroit Lions held training camp at Ford Field on Saturday, hoping it is a step toward gaining home-field advantage this season. Last year, the Lions went 3-13-1 and had the lowest home attendance numbers of any team in the NFL. In the past four years, they’ve won a total of nine home games. The Lions usually hold camp in Allen Park but instead held their annual scrimmage at Ford Field. Former Pro Bowl receiver DJ Chark competed on a pro field for the first time since breaking an ankle and missing the final 13 games in 2021, when he played for Jacksonville. During the scrimmage, he caught four passes for 76 yards and two touchdowns, including a 33-yard score that ended practice.
