NFL training camps are underway as all 32 teams start their preparation for the 2019 season.

Majority of the teams reported to camp earlier in the week, and top names like the Saints' Michael Thomas and the Chargers' Melvin Gordon failed to show up while holding out for bigger contracts. Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott did not board the team plane to Southern California on Thursday, causing speculation if he will also hold out.

The Bengals, Cowboys, Chiefs, Rams, Raiders and 49ers open camp on Friday, rounding out the last group of NFL teams to do so.
