Elijah Shumate was placed on the active/non-football injury list on Tuesday with an undisclosed injury.

Impact

The severity of the injury is unknown but the undrafted rookie free agent will miss the beginning of his first training camp as a result. He can be taken off the non-football injury list at any point.

The Texans have placed Cleveland Wallace (undisclosed) on the PUP list to begin training camp, the Texans' official site reports.

Impact

An undrafted rookie out of San Diego State via the University of Washington, Wallace will compete for a roster spot at cornerback once cleared by the team.

Mike Hilton was placed on the active/non-football injury list on Tuesday with an undisclosed injury.

Impact

The severity of the injury is still unknown, but the undrafted cornerback will now begin his training camp on the sidelines. The 5-foot-9 corner can be taken off the NFI list at any point.

The Texans have placed Lonnie Ballentine (knee) on the PUP list to begin training camp, the Texans' official site reports.

Impact

Ballentine suffered a dislocated knee cap in addition to a torn PCL and MCL in the same left knee during a freak accident early last season. After an offseason of rehab, and when team doctors give him the thumbs up, he should be all set to retake the field come Week 1. Though Ballentine hasn't played much during his first two injury-marred years in the league, his roster spot shouldn't be in danger.

Mike Miller was placed on the active/non-football injury list with an undisclosed injury on Tuesday.

Impact

The severity of the injury is still unknown, but Miller, a rookie undrafted free-agent, will now miss the beginning of his first training camp. Fellow tight end Darion Griswold was placed on the PUP list, leaving the Colts with five healthy tight ends to open up training camp.

Clayton Geathers will start training camp on the active/non-football injury list.

Impact

The injury remains undisclosed but it is a bit surprising that Geathers, who was the team's starting safety through the offseason program, will now miss the beginning of camp, leaving T.J. Green more reps with first-team. The second-year safety can be taken off of the non-football injury list at any point.

Conor Boffeli was placed on the active/non-football injury list.

Impact

Boffeli is dealing with a knee/ankle injury that will delay his start in training camp. The severity of the injury is still unknown but updates will come once more information is released.

The Packers have placed Corey Linsley (undisclosed) on the PUP list to begin training camp, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Impact

Linsley missed the entirety of Green Bay's offseason program with an injury he himself has refused to comment upon, and although he proclaimed he'd be ready for the start of training camp, team doctors have the final say as to when Linsley can resume practicing. His Week 1 availability doesn't appear to be jeopardy, but J.C. Tretter will be the next man up in the event that Linsley can't play.

Kurt Coleman agreed to a three-year contract extension with the Panthers on Tuesday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Impact

In his first season with Carolina, Coleman served as a defensive catalyst and helped lead the Panthers to the Super Bowl. The 28-year-old safety led the team with a career-high seven interceptions and also made 90 tackles. With cornerback Josh Norman no longer a piece of the Panthers' secondary, Carolina seems to have fully invested in Coleman.

Colin Kaepernick received clearance from the Colorado doctor that performed his shoulder surgery in November, but the 49ers' medical staff must still clear him for training camp, which kicks off Sunday, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports.

Impact

In a two-month span, Kaepernick underwent procedures on a torn labrum in his left shoulder and a ligament tear in his right thumb, as well as a scope on his left knee, but the first surgery was the one that limited his reps in the offseason program. As a result, Blaine Gabbert currently has a leg up in the competition for starting QB, which will begin in earnest this weekend. Considering Kaepernick's noted mobility would be an asset in new head coach Chip Kelly's system, his ability to take the practice field immediately will aid in his quest for the top gig.

Rey Maualuga was placed on the active/non-football injury list.

Impact

The injury itself was undisclosed, but Maualuga is not expected to miss much time because of it. The starting middle linebacker didn't practice during the spring, but can return to the field as soon as he is medically cleared. Reports say he could return to practice as soon as Friday.

Darion Griswold has been placed on the active/PUP list.

Impact

The undrafted rookie free agent will miss the beginning of training camp with an undisclosed injury. He is joined by fellow tight end Mike Miller, leaving only five healthy tight ends at Colts camp. The severity of Griswold's injury is still unknown.

Seth DeValve has been placed on the active/PUP list.

Impact

The rookie tight end will begin his first training camp on the sidelines as he nurses a hamstring injury. The timetable for the injury is still unknown.

James Wright (knee) has been placed on the active/PUP list on Tuesday.

Impact

Wright starts training camp on the PUP list due to a knee injury. The timetable for the third-year veteran's return is still unknown.

The Packers have placed T.J. Lang (shoulder) on the PUP list to begin training camp, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Impact

Lang is in recovery from offseason shoulder surgery. His availability for Week 1 is not in question, however, especially considering how he threw out the first pitch before a Detroit Tigers game in early July. When cleared to return, Lang will resume his role as the Packers' starting right guard.

The Packers placed Sam Barrington (ankle) on the PUP list to begin training camp, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Impact

Since going down during Week 1 of last season, the true extent of Barrington's ankle injury has largely been held behind closed doors. However, the team hasn't expressed any concern over his Week 1 availability, so he should be expected to return at some point during training camp. Barrington's placement on this list allows for his return to action at a moment's notice once cleared by team doctors.

Nigel Bradham was arrested in Miamion Monday, Phil Sheridan of ESPN.com reports.

Impact

Last week, Bradham allegedly punched a hotel worker in the face, breaking the victim's nose, during an argument about slow service. The linebacker was charged with aggravated assault after turning himself in to Miami police. The Eagles released a statement saying they are aware of the incident but have no further comments.

Arian Foster (Achilles) is expected to be a big part of the passing game out of the backfield, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Impact

How much Foster will contribute to Miami this season will depend on how well is Achilles has healed and whether or not he has lost a step. He will need to pass a conditioning test Friday before participating in camp. Head coach Adam Gase is a big believer in Foster's ability to catch the ball out of the backfield even comparing his route tree to that of a wide receiver. Jay Ajayi still goes into training camp atop the RB depth chart, but if Foster proves to be completely recovered from his injury, it would seem that he could go into Week 1 as the starter.

Josh Gordon (suspension) suffered a quad injury this summer and won't be able to practice for at least a couple weeks, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Impact

Gordon was conditionally reinstated by the NFL on Monday, allowing him to participate in training camp as he prepares to start the season with a four-game suspension. The Browns then announced that they will give the star wideout another shot, setting him up for a long-awaited return in Week 5, assuming he avoids any off-field issues in the meantime. However, Monday's plethora of good news was hindered a bit Tuesday, as the 25-year-old wideout has apparently been recovering from a quad injury that was previously unreported. While details weren't provided, initial reports suggest the quad is a major concern, with Gordon expected to miss "at least a couple weeks" at the start of training camp. Even if the injury doesn't threaten his Week 5 availability, it's worrisome that Gordon may miss a good chunk of camp (and possibly the preseason), as he already faces the tough task of returning from a 22-month layoff between NFL games, rejoining a Browns team that looks nothing at all like the version he last played for. Gordon will start camp on the Non-Football Injury list.

Jumal Rolle (Achilles) has been placed on the active/PUP list, the Ravens' official site reports.

Impact

Rolle tore his Achilles during the team's offseason program in May, so his placement on this list means his season isn't necessarily over. Expect Rolle to be placed on short-term IR in advance of Week 1, giving him a chance to return at some point during the season, but any playing time he may see in 2016 completely depends on how fast he can recover from the typically harsh injury.
