Sunday's Chiefs-Redskins Game at FedEx Field is expected to played in snow with 7-8 MPH winds.
It's going to be snowing, but that is the only even mild concern for Chiefs-Redskins weather. The temperature will be 30-31 degrees per Weather.com, which is actually somewhat warm for this time of year, and the snow is only expected to fall heavily for a short period of time after kickoff. We'd be very hesitant to overreact to this forecast. The temperatures are fine football weather, and the mild winds aren't going to affect anything.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Titans aren't expected to pick up Jake Locker's $13 million club option in 2015.
Locker has a minuscule $2.09 million salary for 2014, but teams exercising the fifth-year option for a top-ten draft pick have to pay him a salary equal to the NFL transition tag. The Titans are going to be in the market for a quarterback after the season. Locker can't stay healthy and has been up-and-down as a pro. Rapoport expects the Titans to go after Jay Cutler.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports impending free agent Jay Cutler is "on the radar" for the Titans in 2014.
We have a very hard time believing the Bears will simply let Cutler walk, but there are apparently people around the league who think they just might. Cutler played his college ball at Vanderbilt, which is located in Tennessee, and RapSheet says Cutler is "believed to be interested" in returning there to play. Rapoport reports the Titans will not pick up the option on Jake Locker's contract for 2015, and it sounds like they'd prefer him as a backup next year.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Mike Silver report the Titans are expected to release Chris Johnson following the 2013 season.
Appearing on GameDay Morning, both Rapoport and Silver had a lengthy discussion about the Titans. Coach Mike Munchak is reportedly coaching for his job, while the team also doesn't intend to pick up the club option on Jake Locker for the 2015 season. After going wild in free agency last offseason, the Titans are just 5-7. Rapoport cites "philosophical differences" between the team's brass and its coaching staff. The Titans are built to run the ball but are playing pass-first offense. Johnson is in the third year of a six-year, $55.26 million deal. We'd expect the Titans to try and trade him after the season. Teams are unlikely to bite due to Johnson's $8 million salary. Johnson will be 29 next September, but he's shown he still has juice in his legs.
NFL Network's Stacey Dales reports Tony Gonzalez (toe) is expected to play Sunday versus Green Bay.
Not a shock. Gonzalez is listed as questionable, but his status has never been in doubt. He's Rotoworld's No. 7 tight end for Week 14.
NFL Network's Albert Breer reports Stevan Ridley is expected to be active for Week 14 against the Browns.
Multiple media outlets have had similar reports, including ESPN's Adam Schefter, ESPN Boston, and MassLive.com. Ridley was a healthy scratch last week, but should be back in the mix for "big back" carries with LeGarrette Blount on early downs. Ridley is not a trustworthy fantasy option for Week 14. There is a chance he could be a fantasy asset by Week 15 or 16, however.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Vincent Jackson (leg) expects to play Sunday against the Bills.
Jackson is a quick healer. He'll go through a pregame workout, but all indications are that he'll suit up despite being listed as questionable. Jackson is on the back end of the WR1 radar this week against a leaky Buffalo secondary.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Andre Ellington (knee) is expected to play Sunday against the Rams.
This comes as no surprise. Ellington practiced Thursday and Friday after sitting out last week's game and missing Wednesday's practice. The Cardinals listed him as probable on the injury report. Coach Bruce Arians said Ellington "looked like he was back to normal," but he's nothing more than a flex play as a skill-position player coming off of a knee injury.
