Brooks (undisclosed) has only been participating in walk-throughs during 49ers' OTAs, CSN Bay Area reports.
49ers defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil wouldn't disclose the nature of Brooks' injury, but said that he is "hoping that we can get something out of him by the end of spring." It doesn't sound like the injury is serious, and we will update his status as soon as more information is provided by the team.
GM Trent Baalke claims Dorsey is making "very good progress" in his recovery from an ACL tear, Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News reports. Regarding Dorsey's availability for Week 1, Baalke went on to say, "I'm never going to give a definitive [answer] because I don't know. He could always have a setback coming up. But right now he's making progress, he looks good, his mind's in a great place, and ready to roll."
Despite this endorsement of health, Dorsey is almost certainly slated for the PUP list to start training camp. However, he won't necessarily begin the season there. Dorsey suffered the torn ACL last season against the Seahawks on Nov. 22, and although occurring late in the season, he could certainly be "ready to roll" come opening day. Comparatively, DT Geno Atkins suffered an ACL tear in Week 9 of the 2013 season, and was good to go for Week 1 of 2014.
Draughn has signed a one-year deal to remain with the 49ers, ESPN.com reports.
Draughn, who missed the final two games of the 2015 season with a knee injury, is thus slated to remain part of the 49ers' backfield in 2016, serving as a complement/depth option behind presumed top back Carlos Hyde.
Williams' contract with the 49ers has been reworked into a one-year deal worth up to $6 million due to the uncertainty surrounding his availability for the beginning of the upcoming season, CSN Bay Area reports.
Williams initially agreed to a reported five-year, $27.5 million contract with the 49ers following a career year last season, but after he couldn't pass a team physical due to multiple offseason ankle surgeries, Williams contract was reworked into a one-year deal. A player that's had numerous procedures to his left leg during his pro career, Williams' status for the start of the 2016 is in question following his latest operations, leaving the 49ers in need of some depth up front in case he's unavailable.
Kaepernick received clearance from the Colorado doctor that performed his shoulder surgery in November, but the 49ers' medical staff must still clear him for training camp, which kicks off Sunday, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports.
In a two-month span, Kaepernick underwent procedures on a torn labrum in his left shoulder and ligament tear in his right thumb, as well as a scope on his left knee, but the first surgery was the one that limited his reps in the offseason program. As a result, Blaine Gabbert currently has a leg up in the competition for starting QB, which will begin in earnest this weekend. Considering Kaepernick's noted mobility would be an asset in new head coach Chip Kelly's system, his ability to take the practice field immediately will aid in his quest for the top gig.
Bethea (pectoral) is back at full strength and expected to start the season at strong safety, CSN Bay Area reports.
Bethea suffered a torn pectoral muscle and missed the final eight games of the season in 2015. He didn't have a spectacular campaign (44 tackles, zero interceptions), but he has the potential to put up solid IDP numbers playing on a Chip Kelly defense that is asked to be on the field for a high number of snaps.
Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey recently suggested he will adjust his system as necessary to suit Forte's strengths, ESPN.com reports.
Asked how Forte will fit in his scheme, Gailey simply replied, "That's not the question. The question is, how do we adjust the system to fit Matt Forte?" Fortunately for all parties, Forte is one of the better pass-catching backs in NFL history, which should make him a natural fit in Gailey's spread attack. Bilal Powell will likely have a role and Khiry Robinson could also be in the mix, but the Jets seemingly intend for Forte to join Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker as centerpieces of the offense. The team has an unimpressive group of tight ends, along with shaky depth behind its top duo at wideout.
Amaro (shoulder) could be used as an H-back or fullback this season, though he believes he should be used as a pass-catching tight end, ESPN.com reports.
Amaro missed all of last season due to a torn labrum, and with the current coaching staff unfamiliar with him after they took over last season, it's unclear what kind of role he will be given. With Jeff Cumberland gone, the Jets will have Amaro compete with Kellen Davis and Zach Sudfeld, which is hardly considerable competition for a player who was a significant part of the passing game in college at Texas Tech.
Davis will miss the remainder of OTAs after undergoing surgery on a torn ligament in his right thumb, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports
According to head coach Todd Bowles, Davis will be ready for the beginning of training camp in late July. The veteran tight end only had three receptions last season but could see an expanded role in 2016 after the Jets cut Jeff Cumberland earlier in the offseason.
Folk (quadriceps) has resumed kicking, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.
Folk sustained a Grade 1 quadriceps strain during pregame warmups in Week 9, and his fate for the season was sealed just two days later when he landed on injured reserve. In a seven-game sample prior to the injury, his success rate on field goals (13-for-16, or 81.3 percent) was in line with his career mark of 80.6 percent. Of note, though, was a perfect 19-for-19 from the new extra-point distance, which ensures his stature as the Jets' clear-cut kicker, assuming he regains his previous prowess.
Revis (wrist) is listed as day-to-day according to head coach Todd Bowles, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
After undergoing offseason wrist surgery, Revis subsequently missed the entirety of the Jets' offseason program with the expectation to return in time for training camp. No setbacks in his rehabilitation have been reported, though, so the Jets are likely just being cautious with their veteran cornerback during the commencement of training camp.
The Jets placed Smith (knee) on the active/PUP list Thursday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Smith had torn his ACL last December and was not expected to be ready for the start of training camp. The team has yet to detail any sort of timeline for his return, however, leaving him questionable to play Week 1. Entering his second season in the league, the Ohio State product is expected to assume a larger role on offense in 2016 due to his open-field speed and ability to stretch the field in the passing game.
Richardson has been suspended for Week 1's matchup with the Bengals after violating the NFL Personal Conduct Policy, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Richardson will be eligible to return to the active roster the Monday after Week 1 concludes. In January the defensive lineman pleaded guilty to resisting arrest following a road race incident that took place last July. As a Pro Bowler and former Defensive Rookie of the Year, Richardson plays an instrumental role in the Jets' hard-nosed defense but in his absence the team will likely turn to Leonard Williams and Jarvis Jenkins to carry more of a workload.
