Getting ugly: Injuries pile up during Sunday's camp practices

The last thing you want during training camp is an injury.
Unfortunately, injuries started piling up Sunday as teams got back to work following Week 1 of the preseason. FOX Sports NFL Insider Mike Garafolo has the latest news on who is hurting.
The third-round draft pick suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during an early drill in Sunday's practice. The Newark Star-Ledger said McDougle's injury occurred when he was matched up one-on-one with a wide receiver and tried to bring down a jump ball in the corner of the end zone. When he landed on the turf, his cleat got caught and he felt a sharp pain. McDougle apparently "cursed and threw his helmet off in frustration as he (lay) on his back." McDougle had an MRI on the knee and the injury was revealed. Although the Jets haven't announced how long he will be out, it will almost certainly end his season.

That's right, Gang Green lost two cornerbacks Sunday. Milliner, a second-year pro, rolled his ankle and had to be carted to the medical tent. Garafolo confirms that the Alabama product has a high-ankle sprain and will miss a few weeks. The injury leaves the already-thin Jets secondary in worse shape, as Milliner was listed as a starter. The other starting cornerback, Dmitri Patterson, missed Sunday's pratice with a lingering calf and ankle injury.
Snyder, listed atop the depth chart because incumbent Alex Boone is holding out for a new contract, suffered a knee injury. CBS Sports' Jason LaCanfora tweeted this out:

It's unknown how serious Snyder's injury actually is, but if he misses significant time, that's obviously bad news for the 49ers.
The second-year player out of Notre Dame went down during Sunday's practice. The Baltimore Sun reported that Lewis-Moore was "carted off the practice field in tears and obvious pain." It took several minutes for trainers to immoblize his leg, while players from the Ravens and 49ers (teams were having a joint practice) kneeled down in prayer. The team later announced that he suffered a torn Achilles' tendon, which will assuredly end his season. It's another unfortunate injury for Lewis-Moore, who suffered a torn ACL in the 2013 BCS Championship Game that kept him out of his entire rookie season in the NFL.
The veteran came down hard on his back while trying to make a play during Sunday's practice. The Washington Post said that Hall's back locked up on him and that he had to be carted to the locker room. However, the injury is believed to be a bruised back, and word is coming that it isn't serious.
