The St. Paul Pioneer Press' Chris Tomasson reports Vikings FS Harrison Smith has a Grade 3 high-ankle sprain and may miss the remainder of the season.

A Grade 3 high-ankle sprain is the worst kind of sprained ankle one can endure. Surgery isn't out of the question, but for now the Vikings are taking it week to week, according to Tomasson. Smith has been battling the ankle issue all season long but keeps aggravating it. He's done so at least three times now and was on crutches after last Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys.

Rams signed GM Les Snead to a two-year extension through 2018.

As we noted over the weekend, both coach Jeff Fisher and Snead received extensions before the season. Fisher was hired in 2012 and handpicked Snead as his right-hand man. It's anyone's guess as to how much control Snead actually has over the roster, but the two definitely work hand-in-hand. Fisher deserves much more blame for the Rams' lack of progress, but the Snead-Fisher regime has whiffed on a ton of draft picks despite having 16 top-75 picks over the past five drafts. They also handed Tavon Austin one of the worst contracts in recent memory this summer, giving him a four-year, $42 million extension in August. Snead and Fisher are tied at the hip. If one goes, the other will likely join him.

Colts OLB Robert Mathis (biceps) believes he has a "good shot" at returning for Week 14.

Mathis describes his injury as a "minor tear." Mathis hasn't been making a huge impact this season, but the Colts' undermanned defense will take all the help it can get.
Dec 6 - 7:01 PM

The NFL has told the Cowboys suspended DE Randy Gregory won't be allowed to return to practice on Wednesday.

Gregory's status is confusing, but he's apparently suspended through Week 15. It's unclear if a new ban will then kick in. What we do know is that Gregory probably won't be playing football any time soon.

Free agent RB Bernard Pierce worked out for the Broncos on Tuesday.

The Broncos went with Justin Forsett instead. Pierce has struggled even for workouts after being cut by the Jets in mid-August.
Dec 6 - 6:02 PM

Free agent QBs T.J. Yates and Sean Renfree worked out for the Broncos on Tuesday.

The Broncos have expressed optimism on Trevor Siemian's (foot) Week 14 status, but this indicates a level of concern. Yates broke into the league with coach Gary Kubiak, and would be a sensible one-week emergency option behind Paxton Lynch and Austin Davis.
Dec 6 - 6:00 PM

NFL suspended Packers DT Mike Pennel four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Pennel had been facing a 10-game ban, but sued the league over a technicality. This is the settlement. It's Pennel's second four-game suspension of 2016. The run stopper can return for the playoffs if the Packers qualify. Pennel will be a restricted free agent in the offseason.
Dec 6 - 5:24 PM

Seahawks signed S Jeron Johnson.

He'll provide depth at the back end of the defense with Earl Thomas on injured reserve. A 2011 UDFA, Johnson spent 2011-14 with the Seahawks, so he knows coach Pete Carroll's system well.
