Raiders release first depth chart of camp

NAPA -- The Raiders have issued their first depth chart of training camp and no, Kyle Newhall-Caballero has not unseated Carson Palmer as the Raiders' first-string quarterback. In fact, there are no real surprises among the starters on this depth chart, not with injuries playing a role so early in camp. It is interesting to note, though, that Jacoby Ford is listed as both the punt and kickoff returner and that Tommy Kelly is listed as a nose tackle in a 4-3 defense.

Patriots place Gronkowski on season-ending IR

The Patriots have placed Rob Gronkowski on injured reserve, officially ending the injured tight end's season. 

The Patriots have added running back D.J. Foster to the 53-man roster.

Gronkowski underwent surgery on his back Friday in Los Angeles. There was some hope he might be able to return if the Patriots reached the Super Bowl, but this move ends that.
