Injuries hit NFL training camps

Football is a collision sport, and injuries are a fact of the game. But a rash of season-ending injuries to some key performers in the first days of training camp -- Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta and Broncos center Dan Koppen -- has raised eyebrows. Maclin tore his ACL during a non-contact drill, but Koppen (ACL) and Pitta (fractured and dislocated hip) were hurt during practice. Is there any way to make training camp safer?
