NFL Around the League: One Giant Leap

Brandin Cooks sat out of practice Thursday.

Cooks sat out of practice with an undisclosed ailment. Saints head coach Sean Payton refused to shed any light on the injury due to the fact that teams aren't required to disclose injury information at this point in the year. If the injury is serious at all we should hear more about it in the coming weeks.

Jairus Byrd (knee) sat out of practice Thursday, but worked on the side with trainers.

Saints head coach Sean Payton said that Byrd is currently rehabbing the same knee injury that has plagued him since the 2014 season. Payton went on to add that Byrd may not fully participate in team drills until the beginning of training camp, but is on schedule so far. The Saints safety has only played in 17 games since he signed a huge six year deal in 2014. If he can get healthy and regain his form, his play would be a huge boost for a Saints defense that was dead last in the league in points allowed in 2015.

Trent Richardson is dealing with a hamstring injury.

Richardson is currently buried on the Ravens depth chart and in fantasy ADP is he is currently the 60th running back off the board. Even a pick that high seems to be based on name value alone and this injury will not help his efforts to make the Ravens roster or to find his way onto any fantasy teams.

Browns have signed rookie LB Emmanuel Ogbah.

Ogbah was the first pick of the second round in the 2016 NFL Draft. His strength is in the pass rush as he finished his college career with 28 sacks and he could earn playing time immediately as a result.

Jeremy Maclin left Thursday's practice due to a minor ankle injury.

At this point in the off-season, this can be ignored. Just be on the lookout of any reports of the injury lingering any closer to the season.

Seahawks will ease Thomas Rawls into training camp and he could be ready for the start of the season.

Rawls is set to be the starting back for the Seahawks and Head Coach Pete Carroll has talked optimistically about his status heading into the season. He was the featured back for the Seahawks on and off last season, but his 5.6 yards per carry is promising for fantasy purposes.

Seahawks will ease Jimmy Graham into training camp and he could be ready for Week 1.

Graham ruptured his patellar tendon in the midst of a disappointing debut season with the Seahawks. It will be interesting to monitor how his draft stock is affected throughout the summer by news relating to his return from injury. He is currently the 11th tight end taken in drafts.

Cowboys have allowed Ronald Leary to seek a trade.

Leary has been absent from OTAs due to his unhappiness with his role on the team. It seems as if the Cowboys are growing sick of his absence and will give him the chance to try to work out a trade.
