Kadarius Toney

Kadarius Toney

WR | NYG

Reps being limited

Coach Brian Daboll said Thursday that Toney (undisclosed) and teammate Kenny Golladay (undisclosed) are participating in OTAs while wearing red jerseys at practice, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Toney was limited to 10 appearances as a rookie due to health issues, so while there's not yet any reason to consider his current undisclosed injury serious, it will be worth keeping an eye on his status. While Toney's practice reps remain dialed down, the primary beneficiary of increased opportunities could be rookie second-round pick Wan'Dale Robinson, who appears to be competing for a key role in the slot. With Golladay and Sterling Shepard (Achilles) also dealing with injury issues, fourth-year pro Darius Slayton could also see an uptick in work at practice.

Kenny Golladay

Kenny Golladay

WR | NYG

Limited in practice

Coach Brian Daboll said Thursday that Golladay (undisclosed) is participating in OTAs while wearing a red jersey at practice, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Daboll said Kadarius Toney (undisclosed) is also wearing a red jersey, but he opted not to comment further on either wideout's injuries. It's completely possible that the Giants are simply taking a cautious approach to the health of both Golladay and Toney, but the situation will warrant monitoring until more details are disclosed. Coming off a disappointing 2021 campaign in which he fought with injuries, only racking up a 37-521-0 line through 14 appearances, it will be key for Golladay to remain healthy for the 2022 season.

Bisi Johnson

Bisi Johnson

WR | MIN

Returns to practice

Johnson (knee) was a full participant in Tuesday's OTA practice, Matthew Collier of SI.com reports.

Johnson suffered a torn ACL in training camp last July and missed the entire 2021 season. He worked as the No. 3 receiver at times in 2020 before sliding down the depth chart late in that season. He'll be in the mix for the No. 4 receiver role in training camp this summer if he's in fact back to full strength.

Parris Campbell

Parris Campbell

WR | IND

Facing zero limitations

Campbell (foot) said Wednesday that he feels great and hasn't had any physical limitations during the offseason, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.

Campbell underwent foot surgery in the middle of last season and returned to play eight snaps in the Colts' forgettable Week 18 loss to the Jaguars. However, the wideout revealed Wednesday that he played in that contest with a plate and screws in his foot, which were removed two weeks after the season concluded, per Zak Keefer of The Athletic. Campbell has had three consecutive injury-plagued campaigns to start his career, and the Colts added Alec Pierce in the draft, so it's possible the Ohio State product could be facing an uphill battle to make Indianapolis' initial 53-man roster. However, Campbell is only due $1.1 million next season and is finally healthy, so the Colts won't take on much risk by rostering him with the hopes that he makes good on his potential in his fourth NFL season.

James Bradberry

James Bradberry

DB | PHI

Joins up with Philadelphia

Bradberry agreed to terms Wednesday with the Eagles on a one-year, $10 million contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Just over a week after having been released by the Giants, Bradberry links up with one of New York's division rivals. The 28-year-old fills a significant hole at cornerback for Philadelphia, after the team neglected to address the position early in April's draft. Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Bradberry was contacted by 11 teams upon hitting free agency, but he ultimately decided on a landing spot that would give him two attempts to face off against the Giants, with whom he racked up 101 tackles, seven interceptions, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries over the last two seasons.

Tarik Cohen

Tarik Cohen

RB | FA

Suffers torn Achilles

Cohen (knee) was diagnosed with a torn Achilles on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The 26-year-old recently sustained the injury during a training session, and he underwent an MRI on Tuesday. Cohen hasn't seen the field since suffering a torn ACL during Week 3 of the 2020 campaign, and he's now likely to be unavailable for most, if not all, of the upcoming season.

Josh Hammond

WR | PHI

Claimed Tuesday

Hammond was picked up off waivers by the Eagles on Tuesday, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Hammond appeared in two games in 2021 and was waived by Jacksonville on Monday after two seasons with the team. The 2020 undrafted free agent has yet to receive a target in his professional career.

Tarik Cohen

Tarik Cohen

RB | FA

Appears to suffer setback

Cohen (knee) appears to have suffered a setback during an offseason workout, Alyssa Barbieri of Bears Wire reports.

Cohen has struggled to battle back from the torn ACL he suffered in Week 3 of the 2020 season and was released by the Bears with an injury designation after not appearing during the 2021 campaign. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported earlier in the offseason that Cohen was hoping to be available for the 2022 season, but his latest setback may dash those hopes.

Tyler Higbee

Tyler Higbee

TE | LAR

No rush with rehab

Higbee (knee) said Tuesday that he was able to start on-field work at the beginning of May, but there's no rush to get back to full speed during the offseason, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

HIgbee suffered an MCL sprain in the NFC Championship game against the 49ers and was ruled out for the Rams' Super Bowl win. The fact that the tight end has already returned to football activities is a great sign, but it appears like he'll be cautious during the offseason to avoid any potential setbacks.

Phillip Lindsay

Phillip Lindsay

RB | IND

Headed to Indianapolis

Lindsay agreed to a one-year deal with the Colts on Tuesday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

Lindsay split time between the Texans and Dolphins last season, but he didn't garner much success with either team. Jonathan Taylor is expected to be a workhorse back once again, while Nyheim Hines operates as the change-of-pace back, but behind those two, the Colts' running back room appears to be wide open. Regardless, barring an injury to Taylor or Hines, Lindsay likely won't garner a major workload for the Colts in 2022 even if he claims the No. 3 spot on the depth chart.

Raheem Mostert

Raheem Mostert

RB | MIA

Taking it slow

Mostert (knee) is expected to be ready for Week 1, though the Dolphins plan to be cautious with him this offseason, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.

In other words, Mostert won't participate in spring practices, which was probably to be expected. He played only nine games over the past two seasons, with his most recent health issue being chipped cartilage in his knee that required October surgery to address. The 30-year-old is part of a rebuilt, veteran backfield that also added Chase Edmonds and Sony Michel this offseason, while Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed are returning players of note. Mostert should compete for carries on early downs once he's healthy.

Tee Higgins

Tee Higgins

WR | CIN

Not practicing yet

Higgins (shoulder) is present for Tuesday's practice but is not participating, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

It's reportedly what Higgins expected, and he's no longer using a sling as he rehabs from labrum surgery in March. He'll presumably be absent or limited from offseason practices throughout May or June, but the 23-year-old wideout could make it back on the field at the end of July for the start of training camp. There's been no indication of concern about his availability for the regular season.

Mecole Hardman

Mecole Hardman

WR | KC

Likely in mix to start

Hardman may be in line for increased touches in 2022, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

Taylor projects Hardman as one of the starting wideouts for the Chiefs, which finally could result in him getting a chance to unlock his full potential after a couple of mediocre campaigns the last two years following an impressive rookie season. Despite the team trading Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins this offseason, Hardman still has plenty of competition for targets, with Kansas City having added JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling via free agency and Skyy Moore (hamstring) in the draft.

Jarvis Landry

Jarvis Landry

WR | NO

Puts pen to paper

Landry has signed a one-year contract with the Saints that is worth a base value of $3 million plus $3 million in incentives, Ian Rapport of NFL Network reports.

This seems like a team-friendly deal for the 29-year-old Landry, who could max out the contract and still take home less cash in 2022 than 39 other receivers around the league. In any case, it will be interesting to see if a new team can help Landry rebound from a down 2021 season in Cleveland in which the LSU product logged career lows in nearly every receiving category. Working in Landry's favor will be his position within two blue-chip perimeter receivers (Michael Thomas, Chris Olave) while catching passes from a quarterback in Jameis Winston who has developed a reputation for attempting risky throws.

Jaire Alexander

Jaire Alexander

DB | GB

Signing record-setting extension

Alexander agreed to a four-year, $84 million contract extension with the Packers on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Alexander plans to sign a contract with Green Bay that will make him the highest-paid player at his position based on average annual value and tie him to the team for the next five seasons. The 25-year-old cornerback missed 13 games in 2021 due to a shoulder injury suffered Week 4 but has been one of the league's premier lockdown coverage corners when healthy with double-digit passes defended in each of his first three seasons. Alexander will play this coming season on the fifth-year option on his rookie deal, with this new extension running from 2023 to 2026, according to Schefter, while lowering his 2022 base salary to just $1.076 million.

John Metchie III

WR | HOU

Expected to play in 2022

Houston head coach Lovie Smith said the team is still "in the process" of determining where Metchie (knee) is in his recovery, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

After being selected in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft, Metchie told the media that he expects to be ready for training camp in July, but Smith wants to make that assessment for himself. The Texans should know more in a couple of weeks, but they do expect him to play during 2022. The uncertainty revolves around how soon he'll be ready.

Treylon Burks

WR | TEN

Back at practice

Burks (undisclosed) returned to rookie minicamp practice Saturday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Burks saw his reps somewhat limited, but the 2022 first-round pick was still running routes and working with fellow rookie, quarterback Malik Willis. The Arkansas product is expectedly to immediately fill the void left by the departed A.J. Brown, who was traded to the Eagles on draft day.

Alec Pierce

WR | IND

Back at practice

Pierce (undisclosed) is participating in Saturday's rookie minicamp practice, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

The Colts didn't specify what caused Pierce to leave Friday's practice early, so we're left assuming the 2022 second-round pick was dealing with a case of dehydration, which was hinted at by coach Frank Reich. The Cincinnati product is expected to compete for a starting WR spot opposite Michael Pittman.

Jarvis Landry

Jarvis Landry

WR | NO

Headed to New Orleans

Landry is planning to sign a contract with the Saints on Friday, NFL reporter Jordan Schultz relays.

Landry visited the Saints in April, and after testing the free-agency market, he's opted to sign a deal with New Orleans. The veteran likely slots into the depth chart behind Michael Thomas, with Landry further bolstering a wide receiver corps that also includes 2022 first-round pick Chris Olave. After missing just one regular-season game over his first seven NFL seasons, Landry was sidelined for five games in 2021 en route to recording a 50/770/2 stat line for the Browns.

Ezekiel Elliott

Ezekiel Elliott

RB | DAL

'Looks great' during workouts

Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that Elliot (knee) "looks great" during Dallas' offseason workouts, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Elliot played through a partially torn PCL during the 2021 campaign, but he's expected to be fully healthy by training camp. McCarthy added that the veteran running back was clocked at 22 MPH during a workout Tuesday, but the team hasn't been doing any contact drills. After struggling the last two years, a healthy offseason could bode well for a potential bounce-back season from Elliott in 2022.

Bryan Edwards

Bryan Edwards

WR | ATL

Traded to Atlanta

The Raiders traded Edwards and a 2023 seventh-round pick to the Falcons on Friday in exchange for Atlanta's 2023 fifth-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Falcons continue to add to their pass-catching corps with the addition of another big-bodied wideout. Edwards was faced an uphill battle for target volume in Las Vegas with the acquisition of Davante Adams, but the 6-foot-3 wide receiver has a chance to carve out a solid role in Atlanta. The Falcons overhauled the wideout group this offseason in the wake of Calvin Ridley's suspension, led by the selection of Drake London in the first round; however, behind the rookie and phenom tight end Kyle Pitts, the Falcons will likely have a healthy competition for targets leading up to and during the 2022 campaign.

Treylon Burks

WR | TEN

Shut down during rookie minicamp

Burks left Friday's rookie minicamp practice early with an undisclosed injury, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said after practice that he deferred to trainer Todd Toriscelli on the decision to shut the rookie down, and added, "if [Burks] is out there tomorrow, we'll coach him up." It doesn't sound like the first-round pick is dealing with anything serious, but the team will likely be extremely cautious moving forward.

Alec Pierce

WR | IND

Leaves Friday's practice early

Pierce (undisclosed) left Friday's rookie minicamp practice early, but Colts head coach Frank Reich said the concern level is low, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.

Reich speculated that Pierce may have been dealing with dehydration, but he didn't elaborate on the issue. The Colts will likely be extremely cautious with their third-round pick, who could carve out a sizable role across from Michael Pittman during his rookie campaign.

Drake London

WR | ATL

No restrictions at rookie minicamp

London (ankle) said he fully participated in Friday's rookie minicamp practice with no restrictions, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

London suffered a broken ankle in October last year, which sidelined him for the remainder of his final campaign at USC. The 6-foot-4 wideout was a limited participant during his pro day, but there wasn't much doubt that he'd be good to go for his first NFL season. Regardless, it's still an encouraging sign to see the rookie available and participating during minicamp.

Jerry Jeudy

Jerry Jeudy

WR | DEN

Appears in court

Jeudy, who appeared in Arapahoe County (Colorado) court Friday morning, was released on a $1,500 personal recognizance bond, Jeff Legwold of ESPN reports.

Per NFL.com, Jeudy was arrested Thursday on second-degree criminal tampering charges with a domestic violence enhancer, but he did not submit a plea and is next scheduled to appear in court May 31. In a statement Thursday, the Broncos noted they "are aware of the matter involving Jerry Jeudy and are in the process of gathering more information."
