---The Indianapolis Colts waived running back Chris Rainey. Head coach Chuck Pagano confirmed following a morning training camp practice that the Colts released Rainey for violating a team rule.

Rainey was signed by the Colts as a free agent on Nov. 20, 2013. In two games with Indianapolis last season, he had six kickoff returns for 131 yards and four punt returns for 29 yards.

---The Detroit Lions removed wide receiver Golden Tate from the active/physically unable to perform list.

Tate was placed on the PUP list late last week, but will not miss any training camp practices after all. He missed part of the team's offseason program with a shoulder injury. He said in June that he only had soreness.

---The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed defensive tackle Jibreel Black and cornerback Anthony Gaitor.

Black, who was not drafted, played collegiately at Michigan. Gaitor has played 12 games in three seasons with the Buccaneers since they selected him in the seventh round of the 2011 draft. He has 10 career tackles and four pass breakups.

The team also waived running back Brendan Bigelow and wide receiver Quintin Payton.

---The New England Patriots claimed rookie running back Tyler Gaffney off waivers from Carolina.

Gaffney, 23, was originally drafted by the Panthers in the sixth round of the 2014 draft out of Stanford. He was injured in training camp and was released by the Panthers on July 27.
