Mark Sanchez (thumb surgery) has resumed practicing fully at OTAs.

The wrap on Sanchez's left (non-throwing) thumb has been swapped out for a splint, and he was a full participant in team drills on Tuesday. "We'll get eight or nine [days] of good work with him under center," coach Gary Kubiak said. Sanchez is the tentative favorite to open the season as the Broncos' starter.

Kelvin Benjamin (ACL) has been limited to individual drills at OTAs.

He's been running routes "on air" rather than against defensive backs. Benjamin also needs to work on his conditioning, as he's been seen huffing and puffing after wind sprints. "I’m not where I want to be, but I’m still getting there," Benjamin said. "It’s just getting that football wind back." Coach Ron Rivera expressed confidence Benjamin will be all systems go for training camp.

Fourth-round pick Parker Ehinger has been mixed in with the first-team offense at left guard during Chiefs OTAs.

His competition is Zach Fulton, who is better suited as an interior reserve than a starter. 6-foot-6 and 310 pounds, Ehinger spent time at guard and tackle at the University of Cincinnati. The Chiefs' other O-Line starters are LT Eric Fisher, C Mitch Morse, RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, and RT Mitchell Schwartz.

Redskins TE Niles Paul has bulked up to 250 pounds.

A college wide receiver and punt returner, Paul measured 6-foot-1, 224 coming out of Nebraska, so this is a considerable size increase. In order to earn snaps behind $50 million starter Jordan Reed, Paul will need to hold up in the running game. He could become a fantasy factor with an injury to Reed.

Texans UDFA TE Stephen Anderson has "created an impression with his athleticism and skill set" at OTAs.

A favorite pre-draft sleeper of Rotoworld's Josh Norris, Anderson is a tight end/H-back with 80th-percentile SPARQ athleticism at 6-foot-2, 230. "Stephen Anderson, who to this point has done a really good job of learning the plays and going out there in a non-padded practice," said coach Bill O'Brien when asked to name an OTAs standout. "He’s shown us some good things." The Texans' tight end depth chart is wide open, making Anderson a Dynasty prospect to monitor.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette believes second-year WR Sammie Coates will be the main beneficiary of Martavis Bryant's year-long ban.

Never prone to hyperbole, the venerable Bouchette has been "told" Coates "worked out like crazy" this offseason, is in "great shape," and "the coaches keep talking him up." A repeat of Bryant's numbers is highly unlikely for Coates, but he has a wide catching radius and dynamic athletic ability at 6-foot-1, 212 with 4.41 wheels. He's an intriguing late-round dart throw in best-ball MFL10s.

DeSean Jackson forfeited a $500,000 workout bonus by skipping OTAs.

Must be nice. In order to collect the bonus, Jackson needed to participate in at least 90 percent of Washington's offseason activities, which began on April 18. "He has been here, he has popped in and had a cup of coffee," coach Jay Gruden said. "Last time I looked up the word 'voluntary,' that is his choice, and he has been in the league nine years." Jackson is still owed a $3.75 million base salary in addition to a $3.75 million roster bonus.

Kevin White says he's felt 100 percent "for months" after missing his entire rookie season with a stress fracture in his shin.

Per the Chicago Sun Times, White "drove hard on his cuts" at OTAs and took part in both individual and team drills. "I'm back to normal," said White. "I'm really not focused on the leg too much." White added that he's spending extended offseason time with Jay Cutler in an effort to build off-field chemistry that might translate onto the field. Bears WRs coach Curtis Johnson recently compared White's skill set to that of Andre Johnson, whom Curtis coached at The U.

Coach Bruce Arians used the words "unique" and "special" when describing second-year WR J.J. Nelson.

"He has a very unique skill in tracking the ball that the great ones have when the ball's coming over your opposite shoulder," Arians said. "When you have a little fast guy that can do that, you have a special one." Nelson averaged a robust 23.7 YPR on 14 catches as a rookie and is hoping for an expanded role. But it's hard to envision many opportunities if all three of Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, and John Brown stay healthy. Fitz and Floyd are free agents in 2017.

Bruce Ellington has been working as the 49ers' slot receiver at OTAs.

Shortly after getting the job, coach Chip Kelly said he was "intrigued" by Ellington. Early on, Torrey Smith and Quinton Patton have been the outside receivers, with Ellington running all the short patterns inside. Behind Smith, snaps are up for grabs. Ellington hasn't shown much in his two seasons.

Cody Latimer was arrested for failing to pay a traffic ticket in Arapahoe County, CO on Monday.

Latimer was the victim of a domestic abuse incident, but ended up going to jail when the police discovered he had a warrant for failing to show up to court and pay a traffic ticket from last year. He settled it for $311.50 on Tuesday.

"Retired" RT Anthony Davis has yet to file papers for reinstatement.

Davis hinted over the weekend that he still plans to play this season, but quickly deleted the tweet. A report earlier this month had Davis "badly out of shape." For now, the 49ers are toying with Erik Pears or Trent Brown at right tackle.

Coach Gus Bradley said he's excited about and "looking for big strides" from second-year CB Nick Marshall.

Marshall, of course, was Auburn's QB before switching to corner in the pros. He appeared in 13 games as a rookie UDFA, playing 141 of his 144 defensive snaps in December. Bradley may be talking up Marshall, but he's deep down the depth chart after the additions of Prince Amukamara and Jalen Ramsey.

Colts second-year T/G Denzelle Good was getting reps at right guard at Tuesday's OTA.

Good made four starts at right tackle as a rookie, receiving strong marks from Pro Football Focus for his run blocking. A mammoth at 6'6/340, Good is a plus athlete for his size, and the team has talked him up as a potential starter. The Colts are set LT-C, but need to figure out the right side of their line.

Eagles DE Brandon Graham is working with the second-team defense at OTAs.

Connor Barwin and Vinny Curry are running with the ones. Graham may not open the season as a starter, but it's conceivable he plays roughly equal snaps to Barwin and Curry as the trio works in a rotation. Graham tallied 6.5 sacks and three forced fumbles at outside linebacker in last year's 3-4 scheme. He is naturally a 4-3 end and will move back there under new DC Jim Schwartz.
