Cleveland Browns Pro Bowl cornerback Denzel Ward has been activated from physically unable to perform list and will practice for the first time since Cleveland’s training camp opened. He had been sidelined with a sprained left foot. Ward was hurt during Cleveland’s final practice of minicamp in June and has been restricted to working on the side with trainers in camp. The 25-year-old Ward signed a five-year, $105 million contract extension in April, a deal that at the time made him the NFL’s highest-paid cornerback.

The Miami Dolphins have placed backup cornerback Trill Williams on season-ending injured reserve. Williams tore the ACL in his left knee during the team's preseason opener against Tampa Bay. Also Monday, Miami signed veteran cornerback Mackensie Alexander and defensive tackle Niles Scott. Alexander is entering his seventh season, spending five with the Minnesota Vikings and one with the Cincinnati Bengals. Scott has mostly spent time on practice squads but played in six games with Cincinnati during the 2018 season.

George Pickens has been the talk of Pittsburgh Steelers training camp, as he has turned heads with his big-play ability through three weeks of workouts at St. Vincent College. The promising rookie receiver was just as impressive in his professional debut, helping the offense to three first-half scoring drives during Pittsburgh’s preseason-opening win against Seattle on Saturday.

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters has returned to practice. Peters missed all of last season with a knee injury, and coach John Harbaugh says he’s in a good place after doing individual work. Baltimore plays its second preseason game at Arizona on Sunday. The Ravens also announced Monday they released running back Corey Clement and cornerback Robert Jackson. Peters and running backs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards all missed last season because of knee injuries. Dobbins returned to practice recently. Harbaugh wouldn’t say whether quarterback Lamar Jackson would play against the Cardinals after being held out of the preseason opener against Tennessee.
