John Schneider said before the draft that Chancellor was scheduled to have a scan in late June or early July.

The Los Angeles Chargers suffered a major blow on Tuesday when Hunter Henry tore his right ACL on the first day of OTAs.

Ryan Tannehill will participate with no limitations in the Miami Dolphins' 10 days of OTA followed by a three-day mandatory minicamp.

Tannehill tore his ACL in August of 2017.

Jay Cutler replaced Tannehill last season as the Dolphins went 6-10.

"I've seen a guy that's very confident," Adam Gase recently said, via The Palm Beach Post. "I know he's excited to get back out there. I know us as coaches, we're excited to have him out there. He's just really smooth with the operation that we've been able to do as far as what we're doing in practice or those throwing sessions. It just feels smooth."

Brandon Graham is recovering from right ankle surgery and could miss the Philadelphia Eagles' spring workouts, according to sources.

Graham had the procedure May 1 and is currently in a protective boot.

He played in each of Philadelphia's playoff games despite suffering a high ankle sprain on Christmas night against the Oakland Raiders and skipping the final game of the regular season.

Graham, 30, is in the final year of his contract. Despite some negotiations over the past several months, the two sides have been unable to strike a new deal so far.
