Jordy Nelson (ribs, illness) is active for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Falcons.

So are Davante Adams (ankle), Geronimo Allison (hamstring), Morgan Burnett (thigh), Christine Michael (back) and Quinten Rollins (neck, concussion). Nelson missed Friday's practice with the flu but was limited at the Packers' other two sessions this week. He plans to play with a Kevlar vest to protect his broken ribs. QB Joe Callahan, FB Joe Kerridge, WR Max McCaffrey, T Kyle Murphy, DT Christian Ringo, RB James Starks and CB Herb Waters round out the Packers' inactives for Sunday's NFC Championship.

Christine Michael (back) is active for the NFC Championship Game against the Falcons.

Michael was added to the injury report with a back issue on Saturday, but he finished off his pre-game warm-up with a backflip, indicating he is just fine. Michael played limited snaps and did not touch the ball last week, however, so betting on him in DFS is a risky proposition. Green Bay declared QB Joe Callahan, WR Max McCaffrey, CB Herb Waters, FB Joe Kerridge, James Starks, OT Kyle Murphy, and DT Christian Ringo inactive.

Geronimo Allison (hamstring) is active for the NFC Championship Game against the Falcons.

Allison will suit up despite sitting out the entire week of practice. With both Jordy Nelson (ribs) and Davante Adams (ankle) also active, Allison's role is unclear, but it would not be surprising if either Nelson or Adams (or both) were not able to finish the game. Allison is as good a low-priced flier as any in DFS.

Davante Adams (ankle) is active for the NFC Championship Game against the Falcons.

As are Jordy Nelson (ribs) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring). Adams did not practice at all this week and reportedly did not run any routes in the pre-game warm-up. With Nelson back, it is possible Adams is nothing more than an emergency option. He is a risky DFS bet, albeit one with a sky-high ceiling.

Jordy Nelson (ribs) is active for the NFC Championship Game against the Falcons.

As are Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring). Despite being active, Nelson's ability to play a full complement of snaps is in serious question despite a Kevlar vest which he hopes will protect his broken ribs. Nelson is a dart throw at best in DFS, but he is a high-upside one.

Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports the Redskins are in negotiations to promote QBs coach Matt Cavanaugh to offensive coordinator.

This has been the expected outcome since OC Sean McVay left to take a head-coaching job with the Rams last week. With Cavanaugh ascending to offensive coordinator, Kevin O'Connell is expected to take over as the Redskins' QBs coach. O'Connell spent last year as an offensive assistant for the 49ers. Head coach Jay Gruden is expected to handle play-calling duties on offense next season.

Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan will interview for the 49ers' head-coaching vacancy for a second time next week.

Shanahan will interview on Tuesday if the Falcons lose to the Packers on Sunday, but if Atlanta wins to advance to the Super Bowl, the interview won't be until Friday. Tom Cable and Josh McDaniels both withdrew their names from the Niners' coaching search last week, leaving Shanahan as the odds-on favorite to replace Chip Kelly. The Niners are already talking as if Shanahan has the job, so next week's interview should be just a formality.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Martellus Bennett will likely undergo offseason ankle surgery.

Rapoport revealed that Bennett has a cracked bone in his ankle and also has bone chips that will need to be cleaned out. It's pretty evident that Bennett has been playing at well less than 100 percent this season, but he still has yet to miss a game. Bennett was listed as questionable this week after briefly exiting with a knee issue during the Divisional Round, but should play his usual snaps in Sunday's AFC title game versus Pittsburgh.
