According to the Chicago Tribune's Mike Mulligan, John Fox will return for a third season as the Bears' coach in 2017.

After going 6-10 in his first season with Chicago, Fox has guided the Bears to a 3-9 mark through 12 games this year. The loss of OC Adam Gase has been substantial, and the promotion of QBs coach Dowell Loggains hasn't panned out. But according to Mulligan, word is Bears DC Vic Fangio is the one who won't be back. Fangio is probably the Bears' best coach on their entire staff, and the defensive issues have mostly been due to a lack of talent in the secondary and a rash of injuries in the front-seven. Fox is unlikely to turn this thing around in Chicago.

Julio Jones (toe) will be shadowed by Rams CB Trumaine Johnson in Week 14.

That's if Jones even plays, as he's battling a case of turf toe. Johnson hasn't been asked to shadow No. 1 receivers much this season. The only one he trailed all game was Mike Evans in Week 3, and Evans managed eight catches for 106 yards and one touchdown on 10 targets. Jones will be a WR1.

Falcons signed DE Malliciah Goodman and OL Kevin Graf.

DE Cliff Matthews and C/G Trevor Robinson were waived to make room. Goodman is a former fourth-round pick of the Falcons back in 2013.

Jason Pierre-Paul will miss 6-8 weeks after undergoing sports-hernia surgery Tuesday morning.

ESPN's Ed Werder reported on Tuesday that JPP's initial diagnosis didn't reveal a sports hernia, but that obviously wasn't the case. Dr. William Meyers performed the operation on Tuesday, and Pierre-Paul is likely out for the remainder of the season unless the Giants make it to the conference championship or Super Bowl. Romeo Okwara and Kerry Wynn will fill in in his absence.

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.
