New England Patriots
Patriots’ starting center Bryan Stork(concussion) returned to practice Monday, yet the Patriots faced two major setbacks at their joint practice with the Saints on Tuesday. After returning from the PUP list, Julian Edelman suffered a lower left leg injury. Luckily, the injury appears to not be serious. The Pats’ veteran defensive presence Rob Ninkovich left Tuesday’s practice with a tricep injury and will undergo an MRI for determination of the injury’s severity. (UPDATE: Ninkovich has a torn triceps but, crucially, has not torn the triceps tendon. Prognosis is out 4-6 weeks)

In news of depth chart standings, RB Jay Ajayi has returned to practice despite reports that he is not completely healthy and has been named the starter over Arian Foster.
The Bills are bringing back Brandon Spikes on a one year deal. They have also cleared Sammy Watkins, Marcell Dareus, and Kyle Williams for practice. In regards to injuries, LT Cordy Glenn will miss the preseason after suffering a high-ankle sprain and rookie LB Reggie Ragland’s MRI reveals a partially torn ACL, making the Brandon Spikes signing all the more sensible.
