After visiting Texans camp, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora came away believing Arian Foster (back, calf) may be eased into the season.

Per La Canfora, the "general consensus" is Foster "looked good" at his first full practice Friday, but Ben Tate could still play "a fair amount early on" due to concerns about Foster's league-high 2010-2012 workload. Foster could play all 16 games and still not approach last year's 391 touches. With declining per-play effectiveness, volume, and durability, he's an obvious first-round fantasy risk amid a glut of high-ceiling running back alternatives.

The Cowboys are holding Ezekiel Elliott out of OTAs after he suffered a head injury in a car accident.

It sounds like Zeke may have been concussed, but that isn't confirmed. Per Nick Eatman of the Cowboys' website, Elliott was the passenger in a "minor" accident on Sunday night. A report from Adam Schefter indicated Elliott's injury is not "significant," but it is significant enough that the Cowboys are holding him out of practice. Hopefully there will be more info soon.

Chargers first-round WR Mike Williams is not participating in OTAs after injuring his back in the first practice of rookie minicamp.

Coach Anthony Lynn is "hopeful" Williams will return next week, but it's not a given he'll be ready before June minicamp. Williams has been sidelined for a couple weeks now due to what the team is calling "tightness" in his back. In a deep receiver depth chart, Williams is missing crucial developmental time. He's no lock to open the year as a starter.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports RB Matt Jones will not report for Redskins OTAs.

Jones has nothing to gain by reporting for the voluntary workouts. He already knows he's out of the team's plans after being a healthy scratch much of last year and then seeing the team draft Samaje Perine to go with Rob Kelley, Chris Thompson, and Mack Brown. Jones likely hopes to get released or traded soon and will sit out the OTA sessions to prevent himself from some sort of injury.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Seahawks will work out Colin Kaepernick and other free agent quarterbacks Wednesday.

Last week, coach Pete Carroll said the team had expressed some interest in Kaepernick, and NFL Network's Mike Silver reported GM John Schneider "reached out" to Kap and the interest was "legit." Seattle will be the first team to get a firsthand look at Kaepernick since he and the 49ers parted ways back in March. The fit with the Seahawks seems perfect as Russell Wilson's backup.

Colts SS Clayton Geathers (neck) is uncertain for Week 1.

It was revealed last week that Geathers underwent neck surgery, but the nature of it wasn't clear. We now know Geathers was dealing with a bulging disc in his neck that required a "last resort" surgery. "I believe in a higher power, and I just pray about it," Geathers said. "Everything will work out." Neck issues are never a certainty to heal, so this is definitely a big concern for the Colts. Geathers was one of the few bright spots on Indy's defense last year as a big-hitting maven against the run. 2016 second-rounder T.J. Green and first-round rookie Malik Hooker opened OTAs as the Colts' starting safeties.

The Kansas City Star reports third-round Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt has "already impressed with his short-area burst and balance."

Reporter Terez Paylor's observation comes four days after ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher predicted Hunt would both lead the Chiefs in rushing and lead the backfield in receptions. Hunt has a legitimate stumbling block in Spencer Ware, but the highest back ever drafted by Andy Reid in Kansas City, he's going to get a chance to make his mark as a rookie.

Steelers S Sean Davis is recovering from shoulder surgery, but is expected to be "100 percent" for training camp.

The swiss-army knife defensive back played 742 snaps as a rookie, primarily at strong safety. He was an every-down player down the stretch, including the postseason. Strong safety should remain Davis' home for 2017.

Teddy Bridgewater (left knee) took snaps and threw passes at Tuesday's OTAs session.

In a video released by the team, Bridgewater was dropping back with his surgically-repaired knee sheathed in a long brace. Speaking earlier this month, coach Mike Zimmer said he was feeling "more optimistic" about Bridgewater's recovery, but cautioned he still had a "long way to go." At best, Bridgewater is questionable to back up Sam Bradford in Week 1. The reserve/PUP list remains the most likely possibility.

The Chicago Tribune considers Kevin White's (leg) progress a "mystery."

Mike Glennon and coach John Fox both had positive things to say about White on Tuesday, but offered nothing in the way of specifics. Fox said earlier this month that White "looks very healthy." The oft-injured wideout is getting in at least some degree of participation in OTAs. The No. 7 overall pick of the 2015 draft, White has missed 28-of-32 games.

Rob Gronkowski has agreed to a restructured contract.

Underpaid at $5.25 million, Gronk has cut a deal full of incentive-laden raises. At the highest level, Gronk's salary will more than double to $10.75 million if he plays 90 percent of the Patriots' snaps, catches 80 passes, goes for 1,200 yards or makes the All-Pro team. It's a compromise that gives Gronk a shot at a much-larger payday, but only if he's able to stay on the field and produce. It's unique for Gronk because he does not have to give anything up in exchange for the incentives. It does not appear to alter the final two years of Gronk's contract, which are currently set to pay him $8 million and $9 million, respectively.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports the "word" is that the 2021 Super Bowl will be moved from Los Angeles following the Rams' stadium delay, and that Tampa Bay is the favorite to be the new host.

Most assumed Rams owner Stan Kroenke would be granted a waiver — the NFL has already torn up every other rule for him — but the league apparently doesn't want to risk any mishaps with its big game. Per reporter Jeff McLane, New Orleans is also in the running to host. L.A. will undoubtedly get the big game sometime in the next 10 years.
