Seahawks signed CB Demetrius McCray, WR Jamel Johnson, DT Rodney Coe, TE Chris Briggs and WR Rodney Smith to reserve/future contracts.
Martellus Bennett (knee) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.
Bennett didn't bother will full practices this season. He will be good to go for the AFC Championship Game.
Malcolm Mitchell (knee) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.
Mitchell was "limited" all last week before sitting out against the Texans. Even if Mitchell suits up against the Steelers, he will be hard to trust in daily fantasy.
Chris Hogan (thigh) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.
Hogan seems fully on track to suit up against the Steelers. He'll be a risk/reward WR3 in DFS leagues.
Raiders RCB Sean Smith is recovering from shoulder surgery.
"He's going to be just fine," were the words of GM Reggie McKenzie on Thursday. Smith missed Week 9 with a shoulder ailment. Headed into the second season of a four-year, $40 million contract, Smith was benched in literally Week 1 before settling into a decent campaign. Turning 30 in July, Smith will return as a 2017 starter.
Taylor Gabriel (foot) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.
The Falcons are just managing Gabriel's reps ahead of Sunday's NFC title tilt.
James Starks (concussion) has yet to resume practicing.
Starks hasn't played since Week 14. It's surprising he hasn't been placed on injured reserve. The Pack are holding him in reserve for a potential Super Bowl appearance.
Jordy Nelson (ribs) participated without pads in Thursday's practice.
It means he hasn't been cleared for contact. He should remain "limited" on the injury report, which has him ahead of Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring). Coach Mike McCarthy indicated Thursday that both Adams and Allison will likely suit up against the Falcons. Nelson's status isn't clear, but he's certainly giving himself a shot to be active for the biggest game of the season. If Nelson does play, he obviously won't be in for his usual complement of snaps. The Pack could have to lean on Trevor Davis and Jeff Janis.
