After COVID-19 threatened to delay starting 2020 NFL training camp, the heads of the Houston Texans and Kansas City reported on Saturday while the remaining 30 teams reported their facilities on Tuesday.
The players go through a two-week contingency period that the NFLPA and the NFL negotiated to reduce their chances of injury following a virtual offseason program that included no traditional football work. The plan includes strength and conditioning of just over a week, followed by five days of non-padded exercises. The first padded exercise can take place on August 17, with a maximum of 14 padded exercises before the start of the regular session.
We told our NFL Nation reporters that they would be out of camp for the team they covered. See their answers below.

Devine Singleri will dominate the snaps in the Bills’ backfield.
The team’s major returning rusher, Singletary, is set to blossom in his second NFL season – despite the fact that Buffalo drafted running back Zac Moss in the third round this year. The two should split Carrie during training camp, but Singletary’s experience and effectiveness in Brian Daboll’s system quickly set him apart as the Bills feature in addition to the rogues. – Marcel Louis-Jacques
There will be three Week 1 rookie starts, but quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will not be one.
This unique progeny will probably outweigh the rogues, but the Dolphins’ roster was thin on talent, especially in the trenches, so first-round pick Austin Jackson (left tackle) and second-round pick Robert Hunt (right guard) or tackle early on leap. My picks are to get roles. Rookies Noah Igbinogen (nickel cornerback), Rakwon Davis (defensive tackle) and Brandon Jones (safety) can all make a case for a Week 1 start with a strong training camp, and the projection here does at least one. Tagovelloa is the most high-profile Dolphins rogue, but the presence of trusted veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick and his familiarity with offensive coordinator Chan Geely put the team at No. 5 pick to start the season. It is also not a knock on Tagovelloa. He is coming off a serious hip injury, and his short time with the coaching staff means patience is the best plan. – Cameron Wolfe
