NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Redskins coaches "all think" they're getting fired.
The purge is coming, but owner Daniel Snyder has decided to wait out troublemaking head coach Mike Shanahan. Shanny's name should be one of the first we learn on Black Monday.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport surveyed six rival general managers about Redskins QB Kirk Cousins' trade value, and "everyone" believed he could fetch a second-round pick.
This is where it's worth noting that backup quarterbacks often have grossly exaggerated trade value. Similar things were said about Matt Flynn in Green Bay, and Brian Hoyer in New England. Cousins could buck the trend with a successful three-game stint in place of Robert Griffin III, but he'd have to be really, really good. This isn't the last we've heard of this story.
Michael Crabtree (ankle) remained limited in Thursday's practice.
The 49ers insist the issue isn't related to Crabtree's Achilles' injury. For now, Crabtree isn't believed to be in any danger of missing Sunday's game, where he'll be a mid-range WR4 against Darrelle Revis and the Bucs.
Frank Gore (ankle) remained limited in Thursday's practice.
The 49ers are just managing Gore's reps after he tweaked his ankle late in Sunday's win over the Seahawks. He's a mid-range RB2 for Week 15.
Doug Baldwin returned to Seahawks practice Thursday, getting in a full session.
Baldwin's Week 15 status is no longer a concern. He's an upside WR4 for the Seahawks' meeting with the Giants.
Marshawn Lynch returned to Seahawks practice Thursday, getting in a full session.
Lynch is an RB1 for Week 15.
Tavon Austin (ankle) remained out of Rams practice Thursday.
He was spotted observing practice with a boot on his left foot. Austin is sounding very questionable for Week 15. He can't be trusted in fantasy leagues.
Eddie Royal (toe) is active for Week 15 against the Broncos.
Royal is good to go on the short week, even getting in a few practices. He'll be a touchdown-dependent WR5 in what figures to be a shootout. Royal is not a recommended fantasy option.
