  • Jeff Janis (quad) upgraded to 'full' Thursday
    Jeff Janis (quad) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: Janis has fallen behind Trevor Davis on the depth chart, but with Jordy Nelson (ribs), Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) all banged up, he could be needed for important snaps against the Falcons. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:07 pm

    Advice: The ex-Cardinal has spent the past two years bouncing around the league, making zero appearances in 2016. Going on 29, Housler will be a long-shot to crack the Patriots' 53-man roster. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:15 pm

With Allison, Davante Adams and Jordy Nelson all banged up, Trevor Davis and Jeff Janis are going to be needed for bigger roles as the Pack try to advance to the Super Bowl.

  • Joe Flacco happy Marty Mornhinweg is back
    Joe Flacco said he is happy the Ravens retained OC Marty Mornhinweg.

    Advice: Flacco said the offense was too "conservative" in November, but it does not sound like he puts all of the blame at Mornhinweg's feet. "I think the other thing you have to realize is that a lot of what we’ve been doing isn’t necessarily his offense," Flacco said. "I think this offseason will be a big point for him to get a lot of the stuff that he’s comfortable running. He and I can work through that stuff together. I think that’s the biggest thing." The Ravens need to improve the running game and find playmakers which allow them to be more aggressive in the passing game, but Flacco also needs to play better for the offense to take a step forward.

  • Report: Geronimo Allison expected to play
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Geronimo Allison (hamstring) is expected to play Sunday against the Falcons.

    Advice: Allison said he sat out practice Wednesday "for precautionary reasons," so this is not a big surprise. With Davante Adams (ankle) likely to be limited even if he plays and Jordy Nelson (ribs) a "longshot," Allison could play a big role in a great matchup against the Falcons.

    ESPN Browns reporter Pat McManamon expects Cleveland to target Tyrod Taylor if he's released by the Bills.

    Advice: Taylor is fully expected to be released by Buffalo, and ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak reiterated it on Tuesday. The Bills brought in new coach Sean McDermott and are overhauling the coaching staff, while GM Doug Whaley has never seemed to be a big fan of Taylor after ex-coach Rex Ryan handpicked him and started him over Whaley's bust, E.J. Manuel. Taylor will have no shortage of suitors once he's free. He'd be a fine match in Cleveland with Hue Jackson. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:24 pm

  • Beat writer predicts Dallas will release Romo
    ESPN Cowboys reporter Todd Archer ultimately expects Dallas to release Tony Romo this offseason.

    Advice: While trading Romo is the Cowboys' "No. 1 priority," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, it could be difficult for Dallas to find the compensation it desires when teams already know the Cowboys don't want him. Archer expects there to be "too many hoops to jump through" to pull off a trade, and the biggest one in particular will be how to swallow the massive $24.7 million cap hit. By designating Romo as a post-June 1 cut, the Cowboys could spread the cap hit out over the next two years and clear $14 million in 2017, allowing them resources to upgrade the defense.

    Advice: Hogan departed Saturday's Divisional Round smackdown of the Texans. "Feeling good, just had a little minor setback in the game," Hogan said. "But I’m working back every single day and feeling better every day." Hogan will undoubtedly have his practice reps rationed, but he should be out there for the AFC Championship Game.

  • Report: Woodhead six weeks ahead of schedule
    The San Diego Union-Tribune reports impending free agent Danny Woodhead (torn ACL) is "six weeks" ahead of schedule in his recovery.

    Advice: Reporter Michael Gehlken posted a video of Woodhead running with great velocity and even doing some cutting. Woodhead is four months removed from going down. He should still have at least 2-3 months of intensive rehab remaining, but it appears he could be close to 100 percent for training camp. One week shy of his 32nd birthday, Woodhead is one of the league's best pass-catching backs, but missed the majority of two of the past three seasons with injury. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:17 am

    USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports suspended WR Martavis Bryant has applied for reinstatement.

    Advice: Bryant won't be returning for the AFC Championship Game or a potential Super Bowl appearance, but is trying to get his ducks in a row for 2017. Bryant was suspended a minimum of one season last March. As we've seen with Aldon Smith, it's not a guarantee the league will reinstate him simply because he's eligible. Bryant turned 25 last month.

  • Panthers working out Aaron Murray Tuesday
    Free agent QB Aaron Murray is working out for the Panthers on Tuesday.

    Advice: A fifth-round pick of the Chiefs in 2014, Murray was the only member of the Eagles' practice squad not signed to a reserve/future contract after the season. That is obviously not a great sign for his future, but he should latch on with someone as an offseason arm. Backups Derek Anderson and Joe Webb are both under contract with the Panthers for 2017.

    Advice: "There's only one that can make that decision, and there's been no decision made," Jones said. "Don't think for one minute if you see something written or something said about what and where Romo is going to be, relative to our team, that there's any credibility to it." While he may be technically telling the truth that a final decision has yet to be made, there is almost zero chance Romo is back with the Cowboys next year. How he leaves and where he goes are the only real questions remaining. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:18 am

    ESPN's Eric Williams said restricted free agent Branden Oliver "has a good shot" to be back with the Chargers next season.

    Advice: Coming off an Achilles' tear, Oliver likely will not take more than the lowest tender to retain, and that would be a smart investment for the Chargers with Danny Woodhead set to hit free agency. If Woodhead leaves and the Chargers do not add anyone of note in the draft, Oliver could play an important role behind starter Melvin Gordon in 2017. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:59 am

He again said Romo would like to land with the Broncos, but added Denver does not "seem inclined to make that move." With it all but decided Romo will be playing elsewhere next season, the only questions remaining are where he ends up and how he gets there.

  • Carroll: Prosise needs to be more durable
    Speaking at Monday's season-ending presser, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said C.J. Prosise will have to prove he can stay healthy as a sophomore.

    Advice: "He has to show it," Carroll said. The Seahawks' thin backfield badly needed Prosise's pass-catching ability as a rookie, but he was injured all season. He had a hamstring issue in camp, hand injury early in the year and shoulder ailment late. Prosise played 147 snaps across six appearances. The Notre Dame product turns 23 in May.

  • Jesse James piles up 83 yards in win over KC
    Jesse James caught 5-of-6 targets for 83 yards in the Steelers' Divisional Round win over the Chiefs on Sunday.

    Advice: With Ladarius Green still out with a concussion, James was one of Ben Roethlisberger's favorite targets. A Chiefs defense that usually smothers tight ends bit on a few deceptive plays from the Steelers, leaving James wide open for a couple big gains down the middle of the field. The 83 yards were James' most in a game this season. Green could be back for next weekend. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:05 pm

  • Allison held to three catches in win over Dallas
    Geronimo Allison provided three catches for 46 yards on five targets Sunday in the Packers' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

    Advice: Allison had a big role early in the game as the Packers jumped out to a 21-3 lead in the second quarter but wasn’t targeted after halftime. The undrafted rookie has done enough to stay in the Packers’ rotation but could see his snap count significantly reduced if Jordy Nelson (broken ribs) returns to the lineup next week.

  • Rapoport: Romo would prefer to play in Denver
    According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Broncos are Tony Romo's "No. 1 spot."

    Advice: With Dak Prescott staking his claim to the starting job in Dallas, the Cowboys will certainly look to shop Romo this offseason. Denver would be his preferred destination, though according to Rapoport, the Broncos aren't "inclined" to trade for him. Other potential fits include the Cardinals, Jets and Texans. Rapoport is hearing from league executives that the Cowboys could hold onto Romo until a major injury arises and shop him to the quarterback-desperate team. Either way, the Cowboys should be able to fetch a first- or second-round pick for Romo. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:19 am

  • Martavis Bryant considered quitting football
    At one point during his season-long suspension, Martavis Bryant told his agent he "didn't really want to play anymore."

    Advice: Bryant reflected on his past in an interview with Sports Illustrated, admitting that he didn't take his rehab seriously at first and even considered walking away from the game. Bryant has since changed his tune and says he's been working out harder than ever before. The 25-year-old has spent most of the last year training in Nevada while helping out as an assistant high school coach. The Steelers could certainly use another receiver to pair with Antonio Brown on the outside. Due to his repeated violations of the league's substance abuse policy, Bryant will have to apply for reinstatement before he's able to return to Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:18 am

  • Amendola gains 15 yards vs. Texans
    Danny Amendola missed his two targets and rushed once for 15 yards in the Patriots' Divisional Round win over the Texans.

    Advice: Amendola played only in four-receiver sets and wasn’t visible on special teams as Dion Lewis returned kickoffs and Julian Edelman continued to handle punts. Amendola’s highlight play was a fourth-quarter double reverse that gained 15. Amendola will remain game-day insurance behind the Patriots' featured receivers in the Conference Championship round.

  • Ravens owner: We need Joe Flacco to be better
    Speaking about Joe Flacco on Tuesday, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said "we need more out of Joe."

    Advice: "I think Joe would agree with that," Bisciotti helpfully added. Coming back from a torn ACL, Flacco actually threw for a career-high 4,317 yards in 2016, but only because he was forced to dial up an absurd 672 attempts. That's not Ravens football. Flacco struggled mightily to make big plays, and averaged a woeful 6.42 yards per attempt. The first year back from a torn ACL can be tough for a quarterback — even Tom Brady wasn't quite himself in 2009 — but days shy of his 32nd birthday, Flacco will be on the spot to be better next season.
