Fantasy Impact: It has not been a great offseason for Jones as he attempts to move past a disappointing rookie season that saw him catch 27 passes for 316 yards and two touchdowns. It is worth noting that he played with a torn labrum, which he had surgery to repair in January. He was arrested for felony vandalism back in March, though he ended up not being charged in the incident. Now, he will have to attempt to work his way back from knee surgery.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Colts safety Malik Hooker has returned to the practice field and is cutting on his surgically-repaired knee. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Even though it's what was expected, this is good news for the Colts, who appeared to have found their long-time starting safety in Hooker, who was playing near a Pro-Bowl level before going down with his knee injury in Week 7. They'll need him on the field as soon as possible, as they did very little to address their cornerback position this offseason, making him more important than ever to the secondary.

ESPN's Dianna Russini is reporting New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) has reported to offseason workouts but is not yet healthy enough to practice with the team. (Source: Diana Russisi on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It is now appearing more and more likely that Beckham will return to the Giants and more importantly, it is looking like he will play in Week 1. While there were rumors lingering that he could be traded or holdout for a new deal, Beckham's presence at offseason workouts is a good sign for his outlook. Although there is still a ways to go until September, Beckham's fantasy owners should begin to breathe a sigh of relief just in case they feared the worst.

Nick Mangold is retiring from the NFL, the Longtime New York Jets center announced on Twitter early Tuesday morning. He will be signing a one-year deal with the Jets in order to retire with the only team he ever played for. (Source: Nick Mangold on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Mangold suffered a serious ankle and foot injury in 2016 that landed him on injured reserve. That offseason he was released by the Jets and ended up sitting out the entire 2017 season due to the injury. Now, the former Pro Bowler and First-Team All-Pro has decided to hang up his cleats for good.

Carson Wentz's rehab from last year's torn ACL and LCL has progressed to a running program, the young quarterback told the media on Tuesday. Wentz declined to give a timeline for his recovery but reiterated that his goal has always been to be ready for Week One of the regular season. (Source: ProFootballTalk)

Fantasy Impact: Wentz still has a long road ahead of him, but running is a big step in the rehabilitation process. He is unlikely to play in the preseason for Philadelphia, and it is no guarantee that he will be ready for the start of the season. With Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles still on the roster, the Eagles may elect to play it safe with Wentz's recovery.
