The Indianapolis Star reports the Colts don't plan to shadow A.J. Green with Vontae Davis in Sunday's Colts-Bengals game.
Updating a previous item, Brandon Marshall (quad) is listed as probable for Monday night's game against the Cowboys.
Marshall practiced in full on Saturday and is in no danger of missing huge game for the 6-6 Bears. Over the last five weeks, Marshall is averaging 6.4 catches for 90.0 yards with four touchdowns. He's an excellent bet to shred the Cowboys' No. 31 pass defense.
Sunday's Week 14 Vikings-Ravens game at M&T Bank Stadium is expected to be played in snow with 7-8 MPH winds.
The forecast calls for light snow shortly before and after kickoff, but it's expected to fizzle out around halftime. It's not even a major concern. Temperatures are going to be in the mid 30s, per Weather.com. We'd consider that warm for this time of year. Don't overreact. The wind is not going to be an issue.
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.
