49ers' Reuben Foster reports to Thursday's OTAs
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was present at the team's OTAs on Thursday.
On Wednesday, Foster had domestic violence charges dismissed and a weapons felony reduced to a misdemeanor. He will be due to return to court in June for a possession charge independent of the situation with his then-girlfriend. However, he's unlikely to face discipline and the team has welcomed him back after sticking with him through the legal process.
Foster, the 31st overall pick in the 2017 draft, yielded 59 tackles and 1 pass defensed in 10 starts this past season.
Zay Jones (knee) undergoes surgery, to miss remainder of Bills' offseason program
Per WKBW's Joe Buscagalia, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Zay Jones underwent knee surgery last week and will miss the remainder of the team's offseason program.
In speaking to the media Thursday morning, head coach Sean McDermott announced the news. He said, "Best for us to get this done now," adding that there is no timetable for his return. If his status for Week 1 is in any kind of jeopardy, either Jeremy Kerley or Andre Holmes would be the likely candidates for more snaps on the outside.
In 2017, Jones turned 74 targets into 27 catches, 316 yards and 2 touchdowns as a rookie.
Chargers' Hunter Henry tears ACL, likely out for 2018 season
Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry suffered a torn ACL during OTAs on Tuesday and is expected to miss the entire 2018 season.

However, now with Henry out, expect Gates to return for another season with Phillip Rivers and Co. Henry will be getting a second opinion to confirm the injury on Wednesday.
Henry caught 45 passes for 579 yards and 4 touchdowns in 2017.
Jets trade Christian Hackenberg to the Raiders for late-round pick
The New York Jets have traded quarterback Christian Hackenberg to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for a conditional 2019 seventh-round pick.
Hackenberg was taken in the second-round of the 2016 draft by the Jets but was a long-shot at making the club in 2018 after drafting Sam Darnold in the first-round and signing Teddy Bridgewater in free agency. Hackenberg will compete with E.J. Manuel and Connor Cook for the backup job behind Derek Carr in Oakland.
Hackenberg never attempted a pass in a regular season game with the Jets and completed just 59 of 121 attempts (48.8%) in his 6 preseason appearances the last 2 seasons.
