Deshaun Watson, Dealing with minor foot injury

Watson has a minor foot injury and won't practice Tuesday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.

Analysis: With the Texans putting on pads for Tuesday's practice, Watson might've been absent or limited even if he didn't have the foot issue. Between his standing trade request and the 22 civil lawsuits alleging sexual assault and misconduct, it isn't clear the 25-year-old quarterback has a professional future in Houston. However, Watson presumably will continue attending training camp, if only to avoid the possibility of $50,000 fines for each day missed.

Donta Foreman, Checking in with Atlanta

Foreman is visiting with the Falcons on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: It'd be hard to find a team with a thinner backfield, but that doesn't mean Foreman will waltz to a roster spot if he signs. The 25-year-old already has suffered an Achilles tear and a biceps tear in the NFL, despite making only 17 regular-season appearances. Foreman did get some work behind Derrick Henry in Tennessee last year, taking 23 touches for 100 yards and a TD in six games.

Tyron Johnson, Dealing with foot issue

Johnson is tending to a foot/ankle injury in the early stages of training camp, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Analysis: Johnson sustained the issue while coming down after a catch, per Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register. While the first two spots on the Chargers' wide receiver depth chart are set in stone with Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, Johnson is vying with Jalen Guyton and potentially rookie third-rounder Josh Palmer for the No. 3 role. Johnson fared well as an undrafted first-year player last season, averaging 19.9 YPC and 15.3 YPT on his 26 targets.

Will Fuller, Injury severity downplayed

Coach Brian Flores considers Fuller (foot) "day-to-day" and hopes to have him back at practice "as quick as possible," Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Fuller participated in Miami's first practice of training camp, but he's since missed three days due to a foot injury. Flores said the oft-injured speedster is "getting rehab and working to take care of [his body]." After averaging a career-high 16.6 yards per reception through 11 games in Houston last season, Fuller linked with the Dolphins on a one-year pact, setting him up for a pivotal role as Tua Tagovailoa's top downfield weapon. Given his importance to Miami's offense, the team has every reason to be cautious with Fuller, and make sure that there's no risk of injury aggravation when he returns to the field. Even if fully healthy, though, a suspension will force Fuller to spend Week 1 on the sideline.

Will Fuller, Has foot injury

The injury that sidelined Fuller on Saturday has been clarified as a foot injury, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Fuller's day-to-day as he waits for his foot to heal. There's little reason for the Dolphins to rush the oft-injured speedster back at this point.
