Lynch arrived at the Seattle Seahawks practice facility on Thursday afternoon following the team’s morning practice. The team confirmed Lynch had reported for camp, ending a holdout that spanned a week.

Lynch was caught by television cameras talking on his phone out near the Seahawks practice fields wearing a hooded "Beast Mode" sweatshirt on an 85 degree day. He was later hanging out in the lobby of the facility.

ESPN reported earlier Thursday that Lynch was expected to end his holdout. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said after practice that he did not know if Lynch was on the verge of reporting.

"Hopefully he’s here," quarterback Russell Wilson said after practice. "He’s such a good football player we would love to have him here and he’s done a tremendous job for us since I’ve been here. I know that. He’s had some unbelievable runs for us."

Around the league

Falcons • Receiver Julio Jones says his right foot has fully recovered from surgery last October, adding that he will be 100 percent when the Atlanta Falcons host New Orleans in the season opener.

Also on Thursday, coach Mike Smith said that Falcons defensive tackle Peria Jerry has decided to retire from the NFL.

Smith declined to say why Jerry, a former starter and 2009 first-round draft pick, suddenly retired.

Colts • The Colts put starting left guard Donald Thomas on season-ending injured reserve with a torn right quad, the same diagnosis that ended his 2013 season after just two games. The move comes one day after running back Vick Ballard had season-ending surgery to fix a torn left Achilles’ tendon.

Chiefs • Eric Berry left Chiefs practice after hurting his right ankle, the second injury that the Pro Bowl safety has sustained so far in training camp.

Berry was able to put weight on the leg, but was noticeably limping, and Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he was still awaiting word on the severity of the injury.

Bills • Donald Trump remains in the running to purchase the Buffalo Bills. Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, confirmed in an email to The Associated Press that the real estate mogul has been chosen to advance to the next round of bidding to purchase the team. Cohen said he was informed of the decision by Morgan Stanley, the banking firm overseeing the sale of the team for late owner Ralph Wilson’s estate.
