02/21/15 - Tom Hornsey, Memphis, Undrafted P Tom Hornsey was signed by the Cowboys Thursday (Feb. 19).
02/21/15 - *Paul Richardson, Colorado, Seahawks WR Paul Richardson is questionable for the start of the 2015 season while rehabbing from a recent ACL surgery. Head coach Pete Carroll said "that's going to be a tough one" to get back by the opening of the season.
02/21/15 - Prince Shembo, Notre Dame, Falcons LB Prince Shembo is being moved to outside linebacker after playing inside linebacker last season. Falcons coach Dan Quinn evaluated him as an outside linebacker coming out of Notre Dame and believes that's his natural position. He was forced to play inside after the Falcons lost Sean Weatherspoon for the season. He split time with Joplo Bartu.
02/21/15 - Jake Matthews, Texas A&M, Falcons T Jake Matthews is recovering from an offseason foot surgery.
"Jake is healing very well," GM Thomas Dimitroff said. "He knows his body. He takes really good care of how he approaches his body."
Matthews, the sixth overall pick in the 2013 draft, played last season on a high ankle sprain. He suffered another injury in the season finale against Carolina.
Matthews is expected to miss most of the team's offseason program.
"He decided to go through the procedure that he went through because he thought it was the best way to get himself back healthy by the beginning of the year," Dimitroff said. "We have no concerns that way."
02/17/15 - Jerick McKinnon, Ga Southern, Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon is still recovering from back surgery that cut his rookie season short, but he has nearly completed his rehab program.
McKinnon, who will likely be the Vikings' starting running back if Adrian Peterson doesn't return to the team, told the Star Tribune that he tried to play through his back injury late in the season before he was finally placed on injured reserve.
"It got to the point where it was just too bad, I guess," said McKinnon, who emerged as the Vikings' starter after Peterson was placed on the exempt list for child abuse.
"It's been pretty good. It's been a long process, but that's just the way it goes after surgery. I've been here all offseason working really hard. I've just been in the training room with (assistant athletic trainer) Tom Hunkele pushing myself to the limit and just trying to get back ready. It's been a long grind but it's definitely working."
McKinnon, who only has a couple of more weeks left before the rehab program is completed, is expected to be ready for offseason workouts beginning in April.
McKinnon averaged 4.8 yards per carry as a rookie in 2014, totaling 538 rushing yards on 113 carries in 11 games, two of which he played with the nagging injury. He also had 27 catches for 135 yards, but was unable to record a touchdown either rushing or receiving.
"I was happy with how the season went. It was a blessing, just being able to play in the NFL, a dream come true," he said. "I took it for what it was. I'm happy but I'm not content."

The 21-year old, Brockton, Mass. native entered the NFL with Chicago as an undrafted free agent out of Boston College. He was scheduled to become an exclusive rights free agent in March.
02/03/15 - *Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M, Browns QB Johnny Manziel has entered rehab for treatment. Brad Beckworth, friend and advisor to Manziel and his family, confirmed that the rookie entered treatment on Wednesday.
"Johnny knows there are areas in which he needs to improve in order to be a better family member, friend and teammate and he thought the offseason was the right time to take this step. On behalf of Johnny and his family, we're asking for privacy until he rejoins the team in Cleveland," Beckworth said in a statement Monday.
Browns general manager Ray Farmer also released a statement.
"We respect Johnny's initiative in this decision and will fully support him throughout this process. Our players' health and well-being will always be of the utmost importance to the Cleveland Browns. We continually strive to create a supportive environment and provide the appropriate resources, with our foremost focus being on the individual and not just the football player. Johnny's privacy will be respected by us during this very important period and we hope that others will do the same," Farmer said.
According to ESPN.com, Manziel is expected to be in rehab at least a few weeks, but the amount of time depends on what doctors recommend. Manziel is voluntarily entering treatment as a direct result of his lifestyle away from the field, and he informed people in his circle last week that he wants to "figure out his value system," a source said.
Manziel started two games this season and completed 18 of 35 passes for 175 yards and added nine rushes for 29 yards. He was placed on injured reserve after injuring his hamstring in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers.
On Dec. 29, Manziel said reports that his tardiness to a walkthrough for the season finale was caused by late-night partying were "100 percent false."
Manziel said he went out with friends from his hometown of Kerrville, Texas on the Friday night before the game, but didn't throw a party.
Manziel admitted he was not at the team's
