06/17/16 - Shane Wynn, Indiana, Undrafted WR Shane Wynn was signed by the Jaguars on June 16. Wynn signed with the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted rookie free agent in his first season a year ago and spent time with Cleveland, the New York Jets, San Diego and New Orleans.
06/17/16 - A.J. Cann, S Carolina, Jaguars OG A.J. Cann was one of several likely starters who was getting in some practice time at other positions during the team's mandatory minicamp. Cann, likely to start at right guard, took snaps at right tackle, LT Luke Joeckell spent some time at right guard and LG Mackenzy Bernadeau got some action at center.
06/16/16 - Quinton Spain, W Virginia, Undrafted G Quinton Spain continues to hold down the left-guard spot with the first team after starting there the final six games a year ago. The 2015 undrafted free agent will get competition from Brian Schwenke and Sebastian Tretola in camp, but is the leader to claim the job at the present time.
06/16/16 - Karlos Williams, Florida St, Bills RB Karlos Williams came into the minicamp overweight and did not practice, spending all of his time doing conditioning work.
06/16/16 - Stephone Anthony, Clemson, Saints OLB Stephone Anthony was missing from the third and final minicamp practice Thursday.
06/16/16 - Jimmy Hall, NWestern, Undrafted S Jimmy Hall got plenty of work with Nelson and Karl Joseph rehabbing injuries and could be a darkhorse contender to make the 53-man roster when camp opens in Napa.
06/16/16 - Kenny Cook, Gardner-Webb, Undrafted WR Kenny Cook (quadriceps) underwent surgery on Thursday to repair a torn quadriceps that he suffered during the Chiefs minicamp practice on Wednesday. Cook was working in his second offseason with the team, after he signed as an undrafted rookie last year out of Gardner-Webb.
06/16/16 - Mykkele Thompson, Texas, Giants S Mykkele Thompson, who last year lost his rookie season due to a ruptured Achilles, has been sidelined this week with a lower leg injury.
06/16/16 - Matt LaCosse, Illinois, Undrafted TE Matt LaCosse was sidelined during the team's minicamp due to a sore groin. LaCosse, who last year had hamstring issues, should be OK for training camp.
06/16/16 - Harold Jones-Quartey, Findlay, Undrafted S Harold Jones-Quartey commanded one of the first-team spots alongside Adrian Amos throughout OTAs after playing 13 games and starting four last season. The second safety spot will be an open fight at training camp with Chris Prosinski and several others involved. But Jones-Quartey, a 5-foot-11, 215-pounder from Findlay, appears to be destined to start out in the lead.
"There's some familiarity with our system," head coach John Fox said. "He strolled in here - I don't even remember what month it was - and had no offseason, no training camp, and I think we claimed him on the 53-man cutdown limit. So he's been playing catch-up.
"This year, having the full offseason plus all the playing opportunities during the regular season, I think he feels a little more comfortable now."
Jones-Quartey has to become more of a ballhawk in a secondary that produced a franchise record-low eight interceptions last season.
"He's physical, he likes the physical element of the game, and he does have a good skill set as far as speed and athleticism," Fox said. "I think he has pretty good ball skills, something we're trying to get better at, so we'll see where that takes us."
06/16/16 - Jamil Douglas, Arizona St, Dolphins C-G Jamil Douglas is being groomed as the backup center this season more than he was a year ago. Douglas, who started four games in 2015 at guard, was an unexpected choice as starting center after Mike Pouncey went down last season.
06/16/16 - *Jordan Phillips, Okla, Dolphins DT Jordan Phillips has been getting about half the snaps with the first team, alternating with veteran Earl Mitchell. It would be regarded as a disappointment if Phillips, the 2015 second-round pick from Oklahoma, couldn't beat out Mitchell for the starting job.
06/16/16 - DeVante Parker, Louisville, Dolphins WR DeVante Parker was limited in minicamp, but that was a sign of progress. Parker, who had an injury-shortened rookie season because of a foot issue, was held out of the last part of OTAs but activated for minicamp.
06/16/16 - *Jalen Collins, LSU, Falcons CB Jalen Collins, who has been suspended for four games to start the season, will spend the entire exhibition season as a reserve, head coach Dan Quinn said.
Collins, a second-round pick in 2015 who was slated to compete for the starting right cornerback spot, was suspended using performance enhancing drugs.
06/16/16 - Grady Jarrett, Clemson, Falcons DT Grady Jarrett (tendinitis knee) returned for minicamp and worked with the first-team defense.
06/16/16 - Jeff Heuerman, Ohio St, Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman was held out of most of the last three weeks of work because of a hamstring strain suffered late in the first week of OTAs. Although he was able to work during the individual periods, it was a setback for the second-year veteran, who missed all of last season because of a torn ACL.
06/15/16 - Karlos Williams, Florida St, Bills RB Karlos Williams did not endear himself to coach Rex Ryan when he reported to the Bills' mandatory mini-camp clearly out of shape. Williams' fiancee recently gave birth to a son, and as Williams tells the story, he fell into the trap of overeating during that period when baby mom would have cravings at odd hours.
"I like to eat and then her being pregnant gave me an excuse to eat, so eating anything and everything," Williams said. "She'd wake up, one or two o'clock, 'I want a snack.' Well I'm not going to sit here and watch you eat because I don't want you to feel bad."
06/15/16 - Kenny Bell, Nebraska, Bucs WR Kenny Bell had to play a little catch-up this season after the former fifth-round pick from Nebraska spent his rookie year on injured reserve. But with Vincent Jackson taking some days off and Louis Murphy returning from a torn ACL, Bell has taken advantage of the extra work.
On Wednesday, Bell kept showing up in the end zone during red zone drills, catching several touchdowns including two from quarterback Ryan Griffin. "Kenny definitely had a good day today and a couple really nice throws there in the red zone from Griff (Griffin)," coach Dirk Koetter said. "If you were out here enough, every guy has his ups and downs, has his good days and bad days and Kenny certainly made a couple plays."
06/15/16 - Alvin Dupree, Kentucky, Steelers LB Bud Dupree, the Steelers' 2015 first-round pick, didn't have a sack in the final 10 games last season. Dupreee said it was the result of poor conditioning. "Just not being used to playing that many games," Dupree said. "It took a toll on my body. Now I'm more prepared for that. I've been training longer, doing different things that I didn't have the time to do coming from college.
"Just a lot of little minor things you need to do, just looking at guys like James Harrison, guys who really take care of their body, following their lead. Your body will feel much fresher and you'll feel like you can do more."
06/13/16 - Shaquille Mason, Georgia Tech, Patriots G Shaq Mason practiced on a limited basis for New England's final OTA session that was open to the media, his first work in front of the press corps this spring.
06/10/16 - *Dante Fowler, Florida, Jaguars DE Dante Fowler Jr. participated in all nine of the Jaguars' OTA practices even though the Jaguars had vowed to manage his progress back from the ACL injury he suffered a year ago in the spring. Fowler said he's benefitted from watching himself on tape instead of projecting his role, like he had to last year due to the injury.
06/10/16 - Kevin Johnson, W Forest, Texans CB Kevin Johnson (wrist, foot surgeries) isn't practicing.
06/09/16 - Frank Clark, Michigan, Seahawks DE Frank Clark decided he wanted to get a bit leaner after his rookie season. He felt fatigued more regularly than he expected in games and made a conscious effort to shed some extra weight this offseason in an effort to get quicker and more explosive. "I went down 15-20 pounds, down to 260 right about now," Clark said Thursday. "Felt like I needed to drop a little bit of weight. I felt like I played a little too heavy. Basically just wanted to drop weight, get back to those faster days of Frank. More speed, get off the edge a little faster."
06/09/16 - Henry Anderson, Stanford, Colts DT Henry Anderson, also a third-round last year, continues to make good progress as he recovers from a season-ending knee injury that he suffered against Denver on Nov. 8. Team owner Jim Irsay said Wednesday night that Anderson probably won't get the green light to return to practice until after the start of the regular season.
06/09/16 - D'Joun Smith, FAU, Colts CB D'Joun Smith, a third-round pick in 2015, has suffered a setback in his recovery from a knee issue that sidelined him last season. It had been hoped that Smith would be able to take part in some of the OTA or minicamp workouts. But that hasn't been the case. While there is no real timetable for when the former Florida Atlantic defensive back will return, team officials are holding out hope that he will be cleared to participate in the early stages of training camp.
