Shonn Greene RB TEN 20 minutes ago
Greene was absent from the first day of Tennessee's organized team activities Tuesday, The Tennessean reports. OTAs are voluntary, so the veteran is well within his rights not to show up.
Green told team officials he was absent because he is the primary caretaker of a child. He's facing a tough battle this summer just to hold onto a job, so it behooves him to get on the field. Bishop Sankey sits atop the depth chart while the Titans selected running back David Cobb in the fifth round of the draft.
Sammie Hill DL TEN 26 minutes ago
Hill suffered a knee injury during Tuesday's practice session at Tennessee's organized team activities, The Tennessean reports.
Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said the knee was a "little sore," but didn't feel the injury was serious. Hill is expected to undergo an MRI on Wednesday.
David Cobb RB TEN 30 minutes ago
Cobb suffered a hamstring injury Tuesday during Tennessee's organized team activities, The Tennessean reports. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt didn't believe Cobb's injury was serious.
Cobb enters an unsettled situation in the Tennessee backfield. The Titans' running game ranked 26th last season as Bishop Sankey underwhelmed after being handed the starting job mid-season. As such, the starting running back job should be available if Cobb makes some noise in training camp.
Zach Mettenberger QB TEN 38 minutes ago
Mettenerger was the second quarterback behind rookie Marcus Mariota during a running walk-through Tuesday when the Titans opened up the first of 10 organized team activities, The Tennessean reports.
Mettenberger, who started six games for the Titans in 2014, will serve as the backup quarterback this season. Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt wasted little time declaring Mariota the starter after he was drafted with the second-overall pick in the 2015 draft.
Marcus Mariota QB TEN 42 minutes ago
Mariota lined up with the first-team offense Tuesday when the Titans kicked off organized team activities, The Tennessean reports.
That's certainly no surprise. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said that Mariota will be the starter hours after the team selected him with the second-overall pick in the 2015 draft.
Allen Robinson WR JAC 49 minutes ago
Robinson (foot) is expected to do little or no work during Jacksonville's organized team activities, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Robinson suffered a stress fracture in his right foot late last season, cutting short what had been a productive rookie season. He should be one of the top targets once healthy.
Marcedes Lewis TE JAC 59 minutes ago
Lewis will serve as the second tight end in an offense that will feature more two tight-end sets in 2015, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Lewis will obviously have a reduced role as a receiver after the Jaguars signed Julius Thomas, the centerpiece of the team's offseason acquisitions. However, new offensive coordinator Greg Olson plans to deploy multiple tight-end sets and Lewis, a good blocker, is part of that strategy.
DeVante Parker WR MIA 2 hours ago
Parker shared first-team reps with Greg Jennings at Tuesday's OTA's, James Walker of ESPN reports.
Parker is the Dolphin's prized first-round selection and is continuing to shine after an impressive rookie camp two weeks ago. He is reportedly impressing coaches and making spectacular plays, so as the offseason continues, look for Parker to continue to work his way up the depth chart.
Dorial Green-Beckham WR TEN 4 hours ago
Green-Beckham aggravated a hamstring strain Tuesday and could sit out the Titans' OTAs for the rest of the week, John Glennon of The Tennessean reports.
Green-Beckham, the Titans' second-round draft pick, first hurt his hamstring during the team's rookie minicamp, but appeared to be back at full strength before feeling another pull in his leg Tuesday. The injury isn't expected to be something that persists into training camp, but it's surely been an unwelcome setback toward the receiver's efforts to get acclimated with the organization. His 6-foot-5 frame makes him an interesting red-zone target for the Titans, but it's not clear if he'll be able to carve out a major role in his rookie season.
Chris Boyd WR DAL 7 hours ago
Boyd was waived by the Cowboys on Tuesday, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.
Boyd, who was a long shot to win a roster spot in Dallas, was waived to make room in the Cowboys' roster for fellow wideout A.J. Jenkins.
