Dallas' McFadden has elbow surgery

IRVING, Texas — Dallas running back Darren McFadden fractured his right elbow in an accident at home and will likely miss the start of training camp.

McFadden hurt himself trying to keep his new iPhone from hitting the ground and cracking.

Coach Jason Garrett said the accident happened Memorial Day weekend, and McFadden returned for voluntary workouts last week. Garrett said the fracture was discovered during a physical before a mandatory minicamp that started Tuesday.

McFadden, who had surgery Tuesday, was fourth in the NFL in rushing last season with 1,089 yards. Garrett said McFadden would be out "at least a couple of months." Camp starts in late July in California.

"He's a tough guy. That's one of the things we know about McFadden," Garrett said. "He didn't say anything to anybody (about the injury)."

Broncos: Linebacker Brandon Marshall signed a four-year, $32 million extension which includes a $10 million signing bonus and $15 million guaranteed.

Chargers: Rookie defensive end Joey Bosa, the third pick in the draft out of Ohio State, is skipping a three-day mandatory minicamp because of a dispute in contract negotiations.

Chiefs: All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles, ahead of schedule after having surgery last season on a torn ACL in his right knee, practiced at the start of a three-day minicamp.

Dolphins: Pro Bowl safety Reshad Jones skipped the start of mandatory minicamp, and could be fined up to $76,000 if he misses all three sessions this week.

Giants: After missing last season, wide receiver Victor Cruz is inching closer to playing. Cruz surprised many by running routes and catching passes during individual drills in a three-day minicamp. The 29-year-old has played only six games in the past two seasons because of knee and calf injuries.

Lions: The team will have cheerleaders — who will be part time and employed by a separate organization — for the first time since 1974.

Packers: Coach Mike McCarthy excused about 15 veterans from minicamp. He did not announce names of the excused players, though receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, plus quarterback Aaron Rodgers, appear to be on that list.

Raiders: Defensive lineman Mario Edwards Jr., a former Florida State standout, returned to practice for the first time since his promising rookie season was cut short by a neck injury.
