    Cota sustained a broken collarbone during minicamp practice Tuesday, and he'll now move to season-ending IR. The 23-year-old could still appear in the 2024 campaign if he is waived with an injury settlement, though he may have to wait until the 2025 season to make his NFL debut. Cota spent his 2023 rookie campaign between the Chiefs' and Texans' practice squads.

    Kittle (groin) is recovered from his core-muscle surgery, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

  • Zach Wilson QB | DEN

    Broncos' Zach Wilson: Struggles in spring practices

    Wilson failed to impress at spring practices, according to Nick Kosmider of The Athletic.

    Kosmider suggests Wilson seemed to have more trouble than rookie Bo Nix with the adjustment to coach Sean Payton's offense. While Wilson still has time to make an impression during training camp and the preseason, it sounds like he's currently positioned to be the No. 3 QB or even released. The Broncos acquired him in April for a late-round pick swap, trading down from No. 203 to 256 while taking on only half of Wilson's $5.5 million salary from the Jets.

  • Jacob Saylors RB | NYG

    Giants' Jacob Saylors: Joining Big Blue

    Saylors has agreed to terms on a contract with the Giants, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Saylors joined the Bengals' roster prior to the 2023 season as an undrafted free agent before getting waived during final roster cuts. He ultimately landed with the Falcons' practice squad in October. He then suffered an undisclosed injury in November that landed him on injured reserve. With his addition to New York's roster, it looks like he is good to go heading into the 2024 season. There are five other running backs on the roster, so Saylors figures to have his work cut out for him going forward.
