Martellus Bennett (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.
Bennett went down late in the Patriots' Divisional Round win. He likely won't get in much practice this week. Bennett has already said he'll be for Sunday's game.
Danny Amendola (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
The Patriots are managing his reps coming off his first game back. Amendola should continue to play in four-wide sets in Sunday's AFC Championship.
Ladarius Green (concussion) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday.
It's an upgrade for Green after he missed practice all last week following a setback the previous week. Green remains in the protocol, but this at least gives him a shot to play Sunday. Consider him no better than 50-50.
Rams hired ex-Jaguars OC Greg Olson as QBs coach.
Olson was in the mix to be the Bills' new OC, but apparently was getting passed over and will take a position coach gig with the Rams. Olson coaxed a big year out of Blake Bortles as the Jaguars' OC in 2015 but was canned by Jacksonville back in October after a horrid start. He was also instrumental in developing Derek Carr in Oakland as a rookie. Olson previously was the Rams' OC back in 2006-07 under then-coach Scott Linehan. Olson's next project is Jared Goff.
Eagles signed G/T Dallas Thomas to a reserve/future contract.
Thomas was a 2013 third-round pick by the Dolphins. He started 26 games for Miami, making appearances at both guard spots and right tackle, before being cut back in October and spending the rest of the season on the street. Thomas is still just 27 but has yet to prove he belongs in the NFL.
Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski considers Ryan Mathews a candidate to be released or asked to take a pay cut.
Mathews is entering the final year of his contract, and his $4 million base salary is currently ninth-highest among all running backs. In no way is Mathews a top-10 back in this league, and he's coming off a serious neck injury suffered in Week 16. Cutting Mathews would clear $4 million in cap space.
Davante Adams (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.
"I'm curious to see him move," coach Mike McCarthy said. "I don't think he'll practice until Saturday." Adams hurt his ankle late in the Divisional Round win over the Cowboys and had to be helped to the sideline before returning. With Jordy Nelson (ribs) also sidelined, losing Adams would be a huge blow to Green Bay. If both sit, Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison, Jeff Janis, Jared Cook, and Richard Rodgers would make up Aaron Rodgers' pass-game arsenal.
Jordy Nelson (ribs) continued to work with the rehab group at Wednesday's practice.
Nelson has been labeled as a "bit of a long shot" to play in Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Falcons. Nelson worked with the rehab group last week before sitting out against the Cowboys. Jared Cook had a big day in Nelson's absence. Consider Nelson doubtful to play at this point.
