  • Taking second-team reps
    Head coach Frank Reich noted Thursday that Dalton is slated continue to work with the second team during next week's minicamp, while rookie Bryce Young handles first-team reps, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

    Advice: The report notes that Dalton was listed as the starting quarterback during the first two weeks of voluntary offseason workouts and began each drill with the first unit, though Young saw more first-team reps . While Young has yet to be officially confirmed as Carolina's Week 1 starter, that's the expected outcome and his elevated responsibilities in practice represent "the next step" to that end, per coach Frank Reich. Dalton was brought in by the Panthers in March after starting in 14 games for the Saints last season, and assuming all goes as planned he'll serve as a veteran backup/mentor for Young this coming season.

  • Allen: 'We're probably going to be going deep'
    Chargers WR Keenan Allen told reporters about OC Kellen Moore's new offense "Obviously Justin [Herbert] has a cannon ... we’re probably going to be going deep.”

    Advice: The Athletic's Chargers beat, Daniel Popper, writes: "This is not Joe Lombardi’s offense anymore. That much is clear." He describes Herbert taking a ton of deep shots within the structure of the offense in OTAs, attempting five throws of at least 40 yards downfield out of 15 reps in one period, then coming back with four other deep balls in a second period. Herbert has always had the arm to take these kinds of shots, and being out of Lombardi's safety-focused offense opens up a pathway to elite QB1 upside for Herbert in 2023.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 2:34 pm

  • Herbert (shoulder) participating in team drills
    Justin Herbert (shoulder) participated in 7-on-7 drills during OTAs for the first time this offseason.

    Advice: Just days after The Athletic's Daniel Popper shared that Herbert was planning on participating in team drills this week, the veteran quarterback was officially on the field Wednesday. Herbert has been recovering from labrum surgery on his non-throwing shoulder since January but appears to be ramping things up with mandatory minicamps just around the corner. Assuming all goes as planned, Herbert should continue his participation in drills ahead of minicamp and should be a full participant in training camp come July. His return to team drills is yet another step in the right direction toward his recovery. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 5:59 pm

  • Rehab remains on track
    San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday that Purdy (elbow) is "right on pace" with his recovery and is throwing three times a week, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Advice: Purdy resumed throwing last week and did some running on the side field during the first day of San Francisco's mandatory minicamp Tuesday. Sam Darnold and Trey Lance will continue to split first-team reps while Purdy rehabs from offseason UCL surgery, but the Iowa State product remains the frontrunner to claim a starting spot when he's back to 100 percent.

  • Rivera: Jacoby, Howell competing for starting job
    Commanders head coach Ron Rivera said Jacoby Brissett and Sam Howell are competing for the Week 1 starting job. 

    Advice: Rivera said during a Tuesday press conference that the team will discuss giving Brissett first-team reps this offseason. It's a bit of a turnabout after multiple reports over the past couple months seemed to confirm Washington was committed to Howell as the opening day starter. Howell, 22, started one game last year and completed 11 of 19 passes for 169 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Brissett, meanwhile, is coming off a quietly strong 2022 campaign as the Browns starter. Only Patrick Mahomes and Geno smith had a higher completion rate over expected than Brissett, who was eighth in adjusted EPA per drop back last year. The likeliest outcome is for Washington to play both quarterbacks at some point in 2023.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Tuesday, 10:35 am

  • Won't participate in full drills
    Jets head coach Robert Saleh said Rodgers (calf) won't participate in 11-on-11 drills Tuesday, but the veteran quarterback is cleared to do everything else, Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: The Jets continue to monitor a minor calf strain that Rodgers suffered at the beginning of OTAs, but there hasn't been any indication it'll impact the quarterback's availability for training camp. Don't be surprised if Rodgers takes it easy for the remainder of New York's OTAs. Rotowire.com Tuesday, 8:06 am

  • Still competing for starting spot
    Commanders head coach Ron Rivera said Tuesday that Brissett is still in the running for the starting job, even though Sam Howell has taken all the first-team reps this offseason, Matthew Paras of The Washington Times reports.

    Advice: Last year, Brissett served as the Browns' starting quarterback while Deshaun Watson was suspended. The former completed 64.1 percent of his passes for 2,608 yards and a 12:6 TD:INT across 11 starts. He also rushed 47 times for 238 yards and two scores during that stretch. While Rivera may publicly call it an open competition, it sounds like the Commanders are going to give Howell every chance to prove himself before moving on to Brissett. It's a role the veteran has occupied numerous times during his seven-year career, so he should be ready to step up if called upon. Rotowire.com Tuesday, 7:52 am

  • Operating as top QB
    Howell has taken all the first-team reps this offseason, Matthew Paras of The Washington Times reports.

    Advice: While Howell has the early lead to begin 2023 as a starter, coach Ron Rivera is still publicly calling it an open competition between the second-year quarterback and veteran Jacoby Brissett. Howell had a strong preseason as a rookie but posted mixed results in his lone regular-season start against the Cowboys in Week 18. He completed 58 percent of his passes for 169 yards, a touchdown and an interception while rushing five times for 35 yards and an additional score. If he can hold onto the starting job, Howell's mobility combined with Washington's talented wideout corps could make the 2022 fifth-round pick an intriguing option late in fantasy drafts.

  • Participating in OTAs
    McCoy (elbow) has been a full participant at OTAs, Tyler Drake of Arizona Sports reports.

    Advice: McCoy injured his elbow last season and needed offseason surgery. He's been getting the bulk of the first-team reps this spring with Kyler Murray still recovering from his torn ACL. There's a good chance McCoy opens the year as Arizona's starter, as the prospect of Murray being available Week 1 is iffy. Rotowire.com Monday, 5:27 pm
