Additionally, Article 4 dictates that non-reviewable plays are limited to: fouls excluding those outlined in Article 5, spot of the ball/runner, and six miscellaneous instances.
Colts DE Arthur Jones was unclear with the timetable for his return from an ankle injury that kept him out of the entire 2015 season.

Packers HC Mike McCarthy said that WR Jordy Nelson is on schedule with his recovery from a torn ACL and is expected to return for the start of training camp.
“Jordy Nelson is doing very well,” McCarthy said, via Bill Huber. “He’s right on schedule, I would say, and he’s sticking to the plan. So, I think he has to be smart in these times and just make sure we go about it the right way. We’re focusing on more individual work with Jordy Nelson than put him in the group and the combination of team environment right now.”
Nelson also acknowledged that training camp is the targeted date for his return.
“I know what I need to do and want to do to be ready to go come training camp, and that’s where we just need to get to,” he said. “So, when I leave here at the end of the minicamp, I’m ready to go, I don’t have anything to worry about. That’s just where I want to get to, and we’ll be there. We’re not worried about that.”
