NFL Training Camp Notebook: Ezekiel Elliott Reportedly Going to Cabo to Train

Keep track of all the latest NFL news as training camp opens this week.

All 32 NFL teams have officially opened training camp and more than half the league is entering their second week of practice this week.

Several depth chart battles are expected to emerge as workouts begin to intensify as training camp continues to progress. Josh Rosen and Ryan Fitzpatrick will be aiming to win the quarterback job in Miami while Dwayne Haskins, Case Keenum and Colt McCoy look to earn their right to start in Washington.

As veterans and rookies look to make their mark on the field, others are attempting to make a statement off of it. Melvin Gordon and Trent Williams are still holding out in hopes of reaching a new contract agreement with the Chargers and Redskins, respectively. All eyes are still on Ezekiel Elliott, who did not report to training camp when the Cowboys began on Friday.

Teams will also be looking to fill roster spots left open due to injuries. A.J. Green and Robert Griffin III are among the biggest names to go down during the first week of workouts.
