The Houston Chronicle reports J.J. Watt (back surgery) is "ahead of schedule."

Per reporter Aaron Wilson, there's "hope" Watt will do "some" work during OTAs. Noticeably thinner on the sideline during the playoffs, Watt had to shed weight to lessen the load on his surgically-repaired back. He's now in the early stages of bulking back up. Returning from back surgery is rarely straightforward, but Watt is expected to be ready well ahead of Week 1.

Speaking at Monday's season-ending presser, Chiefs coach Andy Reid committed to Alex Smith as his 2017 quarterback.

"Do I still think we can win with Alex?," Reid asked rhetorically. "Yeah, we were right there." It's not exactly the most ringing endorsement, but due $13.3 million between salary and bonuses, Smith will almost certainly be back under center for a fifth season in Kansas City. Smith has made no progress as a Chief, stubbornly minding the store while trying to avoid mistakes at all costs. With Smith going on 33, the Chiefs at the very least need a plan-of-succession in mind.

Speaking Monday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll revealed Richard Sherman played through a "significant" MCL injury in the second half of the season.

Carroll said the injury "weighed on" Sherman mentally. Carroll might have been trying to explain away a season that was solid, but not quite up to Sherman's recent standards. Sherman's knee never showed up on the injury report, so the boundary-pushing Seahawks could be hearing from the league. Two months shy of his 29th birthday, Sherman has played through a number of injuries in recent years, but never missed a game. He should have at least one more elite season left in the tank.

1010 XL Jacksonville's Hays Carlyon reports ex-49ers and Eagles coach is in Jacksonville on Monday, "presumably" interviewing for the Jaguars' offensive coordinator vacancy.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport has since confirmed the news. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported over the weekend that Kelly had interviewed to replace Gus Bradley before the Jags settled on Doug Marrone. Perhaps the talk was more about if Kelly would be willing to swallow his pride and lead an offense. For his part, Kelly told FOX's Jay Glazer earlier this month he would indeed be open to coordinating work. Kelly has been adamant he wants to remain in the NFL, and not return to college.

Coach Pete Carrol confirmed CB DeShawn Shead suffered a "really significant" knee injury in the Divisional Round loss to the Falcons.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Shead will undergo surgery to repair a torn ACL. "It’s going to take him a really long time," Carroll added without saying what Shead's injury is specifically. But it doesn't sound like Shead is dealing with only an ACL tear. He's likely to open camp on the PUP list.

Texans RT Derek Newton (knees) remains without a timetable for return.

Newton tore the patellar tendons in both of his knees on the same play back in Week 7. It's a very rare injury and one that has proven extremely difficult to come back from, as even one patellar tendon tear comes with a lengthy recovery. We'd be surprised if Newton is ready for Week 1.

Coach Bill O'Brien said it's "too early to know" if Brock Osweiler will be the Texans' starting quarterback in 2017.

The Texans handed Osweiler $37 million guaranteed last offseason, and he proceeded to be a total disaster and the main reason the Texans were held back from bigger and better things. His $16 million salary for 2017 is guaranteed, and Osweiler carries a $19 million cap hit. He would count $25 million against the cap if the Texans release or trade him. There just don't seem to be many other avenues for the Texans to travel unless they make a run at Tony Romo.

Coach Dan Quinn said Julio Jones (toe) will be "ready to rock" for the NFC Championship game against the Packers.

Jones re-injured his sprained toe in the Divisional Round win over the Seahawks, playing a season-low 58.3 percent of the snaps. But the Falcons have expressed zero concern about Jones' availability for next Sunday. Expect him to be limited in practice this week before playing next weekend.
