Ekpre-Olomu (knee) has received full medical clearance and is deemed "ready to go" for offseason activities, NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports.
The once-heralded Ekpre-Olomu is a former consensus All-American cornerback for the Oregon Ducks in 2014, but is yet to play a single snap in the NFL. He had suffered an ACL injury preparing for the Rose Bowl in December of 2014, subsequently tail-spinned to the 7th round of the 2015 NFL Draft, and was exiled to the Browns for the remainder of the season, only to be waived by the team in April. Now healthy and a part of an up-and-coming Miami defensive unit, look for Ekpre-Olomu to try to earn himself a role manning the slot for rookie defensive coordinator Vance Joseph.
Miami is open to having Jordan return to the team, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Jordan was suspended for all of the 2015 season for violating the League's substance abuse policy. The Dolphins still need help along the defensive line even with the addition of Mario Williams. Miami will meet with Jordan and if he convinces them that he is serious about staying in the NFL they will welcome him back to the team.
Wake (Achilles) is progressing ahead of schedule as he continues to rehab a torn Achilles he suffered last season, according to Dolphins' Executive Vice President Mike Tannenbaum, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Tannenbaum said in an interview on Friday, "He's (Wake) really exceeded expectations, in terms of where he is and where our doctors thought he would be when he got hurt." Once healthy, the 34-year-old Wake will compete with new additions Mario Williams, Andre Branch, and Jason Jones for playing time, as he is expected to have a smaller role in 2016 compared to past seasons.
Ramsey (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp, as his torn meniscus merely needed to be trimmed, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Ramsey's partially-torn meniscus turned out to be an easy fix, and while he may be limited for the start of camp, he'll likely have plenty of time to prepare for Week 1. It's unclear how Jacksonville plans to use the No. 5 overall draft pick, but it's safe to assume he'll have a key role, if healthy. Ramsey is capable of playing both safety and corner -- the former seems to be a bigger area of need in Jacksonville. If he were to work as an every-down safety, Ramsey would likely be a useful IDP from the get-go.
Colvin has been suspended for the first four games of the 2016 regular season for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances, The Florida Times-Union reports.
Colvin will remain eligible to participate in offseason and preseason activities, but will be sidelined for four games once the regular season kicks off. With Colvin out, offseason signing Price Amukamara becomes increasingly likely to start opposite Davon House at cornerback to begin this season.
Marks is coming off a torn triceps that limited him to just four games last year, when his season didn't start until October due to a torn ACL suffered in 2014. Considering Marks posted a career-high 8.5 sacks that season, the Jaguars are understandably taking things slow with Marks to ensure he returns to full health when needed this season, thus explaining his absence of OTAs.
Smith (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans.
The 2014 fifth-rounder finishes up his 2015 season with a fantasy-friendly 128 tackles, to go along with 2.5 sacks and a pick in 14 games. He's on track to reprise his starting outside linebacker role for the Jags in 2016, an assignment that will make Smith -- whose shoulder issue will not require offseason surgery -- worthy of continued IDP utility next year.
Blackmon was reportedly arrested Saturday in Ardmore, Oklahoma for driving under the influence, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Blackmon, who hasn't played since October of 2013, remains under contract with the Jaguars, but it seems increasingly unlikely that he'll play for the team again. At this time, the 25-year-old wideout remains under an indefinite suspension from the NFL.
