Hakeem Nicks (foot) is active for Week 2 against the Bucs.

Nicks continues to be limited in practice, and is still not completely recovered from preseason foot surgery. Rotoworld ranks Nicks as the No. 10 fantasy wideout this week, as the Giants will look to go pass-heavy against a Bucs defense that held the Panthers to 11 rushing yards in the season opener.

Jets fired OC John Morton.

Morton lasted just one season in the Big Apple. According to ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini, Morton rubbed some players the wrong way and also had "philosophical differences" with head coach Todd Bowles. Morton's play-calling also came into question throughout the year. Todd Haley, who will not be retained by Pittsburgh, could be of interest to the Jets while QBs coach Jeremy Bates is the leading in-house candidate to replace Morton. The Raiders briefly pursued Morton for their offensive coordinator position but ultimately went with Rams QBs coach Greg Olson. The Jets' next offensive coordinator will be their sixth in the last eight seasons.

Leonard Fournette (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Fournette aggravated an ankle injury in Sunday's Divisional Round win over Pittsburgh. He played through it, but was noticeably less effective after he got hurt (72 yards on 12 carries before the injury, 27 yards on 13 carries after). For the Jaguars to upset the top-seeded Patriots, they'll need Fournette to be firing on all cylinders.

Tom Brady (hand) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

The injury is to Brady's throwing hand. His presence at practice, albeit in a limited fashion, would suggest it's nothing serious. Brady was brilliant in the Divisional Round (337 yards, three touchdowns) but will face a much stiffer challenge against Jacksonville's league-best defense in Sunday's AFC title game.

Adam Thielen (back) didn't practice on Wednesday.

He's reportedly dealing with a lower back injury. Thielen seemed fine in the Divisional Round—he played 75-of-79 snaps in a win over New Orleans—so it's possible the Vikings are simply treating Wednesday as a maintenance day for their best receiver. It would be a shock if he doesn't suit up for Sunday's NFC title game in Philly.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Steelers QBs coach Randy Fichtner is the "favorite" to be promoted to offensive coordinator.

Fichtner, 54, has been coaching with the Steelers since 2007 and has been the team's QBs coach the last eight years. He's said to be "very close" with Ben Roethlisberger, which is obviously a huge deal after Big Ben and ousted OC Todd Haley butted heads. The defense is Pittsburgh's bigger concern.

The Steelers will not bring back OC Todd Haley.

The writing was on the wall for this one. Both coach Mike Tomlin and Ben Roethlisberger reportedly butted heads with Haley, and the Steelers will let Haley walk now that his contract is up. There's no question he ran some of the most potent offenses in his six years calling plays for Pittsburgh, but the Steelers were never able to clear the final hurdles, failing to even win an AFC title with Haley. It's possible OL coach Mike Munchak will earn a promotion to OC after he turned down a second interview with the Cardinals for their head-coach job on Wednesday.

ESPN Cowboys reporter Todd Archer expects Dallas to use the franchise tag on impending free agent DE DeMarcus Lawrence if they're unable to sign him to a long-term deal.

It's a no-brainer move. The Cowboys have been starved for pass-rush help the past few years, and Lawrence finally gave it to them this past season, amassing 14.5 sacks and forcing four fumbles after combining for nine sacks and two forced fumbles in his first 32 career games. Injuries and suspensions played a part in Lawrence's slow start to his career. Lawrence was Pro Football Focus' No. 3-ranked 4-3 end in 2017. The franchise tag would cost about $17 million.

ESPN Browns reporter Pat McManamon believes impending free agent Terrelle Pryor is a "fit" for Cleveland.

Pryor left Cleveland last offseason, reportedly turning down the same deal the Browns gave Kenny Britt (four years, $32.5 million), and joined the Redskins only to catch 20 balls for 240 yards and one touchdown before being sent to I.R. in November. After the season, he replied to a Duke Johnson post on Instagram, saying he hoped to see him again in 2018. Pryor is a coach's pet of Hue Jackson, and a reunion makes all the sense in the world for both Pryor and the Browns.

The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson reports impending free agent Jarvis Landry is seeking a "contract in the range" of the one Davante Adams signed with the Packers at the end of the season.

Adams signed a four-year, $58 million pact with $18 million guaranteed, and his $14.5 million annual average made Adams the league's fourth-highest-paid wideout. Adams is a prolific touchdown scorer, whereas Landry is coming off a career-best nine scores this past season. He has 22 touchdowns in four seasons and plays strictly out of the slot. Doug Baldwin and Keenan Allen are making just north of $11 million per year as the highest-paid slot receivers. To this point, Landry has said he's felt a bit "disrespected" by Miami's handling of negotiations.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Steelers OL coach Mike Munchak has turned down the Cardinals' request for a second interview for their head-coaching vacancy.

It's a sign the Cardinals have either already settled on a head coach or Munchak may be getting the OC job in Pittsburgh if current OC Todd Haley isn't brought back. Perhaps even Munchak is simply just happy with his OL gig in Pittsburgh and doesn't see the Cardinals job as one worth leaving for considering they have no quarterback. Munchak is going to get a second chance at some point. Schefter adds that Patriots LBs coach Brian Flores is back in play for Arizona.

The Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud believes there's "no chance" the Bucs keep Doug Martin for 2018.

Martin just turned 29 four days ago and has three years left on his contract. But as a result of his drug-induced suspension at the end of the 2016 season, the guarantees in his contract were wiped away. The Bucs decided to keep him around in 2017, but Martin proved to be a waste of $7 million for Tampa Bay, averaging a pitiful 2.9 YPC for the second straight season. He has two 1,400-yard rushing seasons to go with four sub-500-yard years and is a non-factor in the pass game. Martin's sure release will save the Bucs $6.75 million against the 2018 cap.
