ESPN's Michael DiRocco reports Leonard Fournette has reported to OTAs "looking a bit slimmer."

After weighing in at 240 at the Combine, Fournette was listed at 228 as a rookie. Although that's what was expected, Fournette still appeared too bulky at times, and had trouble staying on the field because of his recurrent ankle issues. Shedding a few more pounds could be a way to both increase durability and add a little more explosion. It's an offseason storyline to watch.

Julian Edelman (knee) was a limited participant during OTAs Tuesday.

Edelman did not participate during team drills, but he did do some individual work and fielded punts. Recovering from an August ACL tear, the Patriots will likely ease Edelman through the offseason program, but he should be ready to go at or near the beginning of training camp.

Eagles LB Paul Worrilow was carted off the field with an apparent knee injury during Tuesday's practice.

Worrilow's leg was placed in an air cast on the field before he was carted off. We do not know for sure, but it looks like he suffered a serious injury. Worrilow was signed to a one-year deal in April.

Deshaun Watson (knee) is throwing during individual drills at OTAs.

Watson will not participate in team drills, but this is a positive step in his recovery from a torn ACL. Coach Bill O'Brien said Watson is "on schedule to participate in training camp."

Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap did not report for the start of OTAs.

Dunlap also missed all of the voluntary workouts, costing himself a $300,000 workout bonus. The defensive end has not said why he is skipping voluntary work, but it likely has something to do with a contract which is set to expire after this season. The Bengals have said their goal is to get an extension done prior to Week 1.

Eagles LT Jason Peters (knee) is participating in OTAs.

Peters tore his ACL and MCL last October. It is a shockingly quick return, especially for a 36-year-old. Peters will likely be limited during the offseason program, but he appears on track to be 100 percent well before Week 1.

Carson Wentz (ACL, LCL surgery) threw during individual drills at OTAs.

Wentz said he has not been medically cleared to practice, but he did plan to be involved during OTAs. He looked good moving around before practice, and he looked comfortable throwing the ball during individual drills. At this point, he appears on track for Week 1.

The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports Terrelle Pryor suffered an ankle injury this offseason.

This explains why he was absent during OTAs on Tuesday. Pryor ended last season on injured reserve with an ankle issue which required surgery in November. Mehta did not say if this injury is to the same ankle, but it is a massive setback either way. Playing on a one-year deal, Pryor needs to be healthy and productive this season to cash in next spring.

Christian Hackenberg worked as the No. 4 quarterback during OTAs.

It was a distant fourth, as well. Hackenberg did not see many reps during individual drills behind Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater, and Sam Darnold, and he was blanked completely during the team drills. Jets GM Mike Maccagnan seems intent on keeping the Hackenberg dream alive, but his days on the roster are numbered.

Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is participating in OTAs.

It is a good sign as he continues to work back from a devastating knee injury. Bridgewater was also second in line during drills, behind Josh McCown but ahead of No. 3 overall pick Sam Darnold.
May 22 - 10:51 AM

Quincy Enunwa (neck) is participating on a limited basis during OTAs.

Enunwa missed all of last season with a neck injury which required surgery. He is not participating fully, but he was working during individual drills. Enunwa should be ready to training camp.

New Panthers OC Norv Turner believes he can help Cam Newton become more efficient.

Newton is one of the best quarterbacks in the league, but it is not because of his accuracy. Cam has completely 60 percent or more of his passes in just two seasons, and he has not managed the feat since 2013. Despite that, his new coordinator has high expectations. "I see Cam as a guy that can be in the mid- to high-60s in the completion percentage," Turner said. "We're working hard in terms of scheming and getting the ball out quick. ... We want a good mix of dropback, play-action." High-60s sounds like a pipe dream, but it would not be surprising to see Newton become a more efficient passer in a better system with better weapons around him.

Browns DE Myles Garrett wants to play more snaps this season.

On top of missing five games as a rookie, Garrett played more than 80 percent of the defensive snaps in just one contest. He wants that to change this year. "I wanted to get in better condition, so I can be out there and make plays, create turnovers," Garrett said. "That’s my goal — to be on the field as much as possible, so I can make as big of an impact as possible." Despite a good rookie season in which he recorded seven sacks in 11 games, Garrett still has a lot of room to grow.

Giants coach Pat Shurmur said Odell Beckham (ankle) wants to do more than they are letting him during OTAs.

"He’s champing at the bit wanting to get out and do more than we’re allowing him to do at this point," Shurmur said. "But I think we’re just trying to make sure that everything is healed to the fullest before we put him out there." It is a sensible approach considering how important Beckham is to New York's offense. The comments also suggest Beckham is close to full health. He should be a full-go by training camp.

Panthers WR Curtis Samuel (ankle) is participating in OTAs.

It is something of a surprise after coach Ron Rivera sounded pessimistic about Samuel's health at the end of March. While it is not clear if he will participate in team drills, he appeared to be moving well as he ran routes in individual work. Coming off essentially a lost rookie season, a full offseason would be huge for Samuel.
