Devonta Freeman    RB   Atlanta Falcons
 
Freeman (knee) said in a Feb. 2 interview with Mike Florio of NBC Sports Radio's "PFT Live" that he's not ruling out taking part in the Falcons' Organized Team Activities during the spring, Adam Wells of Bleacher Report reports. "Possibly," Freeman said about being ready for OTAs. "But I'm going to take my time and let [his right knee] heal so I won't have to deal with little nicks and knacks throughout the season, because that's the most important time for me. So I'm going to take my time and let it heal, get stronger. I need to be free when I'm out there."

Andrew Luck    QB   Indianapolis Colts
 
Colts general manager Chris Ballard addressed Luck's rehab during a press conference Wednesday and downplayed speculation that the health of the quarterback's right shoulder played a role in Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels' decision to withdraw his acceptance of Indianapolis' head-coaching vacancy, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports. "Let's talk about Andrew because there's a lot of rumors," Ballard said. "I'm going to listen to the doctors that he's talking to and dealing with, and I'm going to listen to the guy that is training him right now. And, at this point, we feel very strongly that Andrew's in a good place. He doesn't need surgery -- I have not gotten that from the two doctors that he's seen after the season. His strength is good. He's working on his throw motion and he's working on his arm speed right now. He has not picked up a football, but he's throwing balls, working on arm speed. He's not going to skip a step...he's going to do everything right to get himself ready to play. And I'm very confident -- he's very confident -- that he's going to come back and prove a lot of people wrong."

Beckham is happy with where he stands in his recovery from a fractured left ankle, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Now I can see where the mental part comes in as far as being patient, and knowing you can't push too much right now, or you need to push more. It's finding that balance."
