Ryan Williams left Thursday night's game against the Rams with a left shoulder injury.

Williams broke off a nice 12-yard run on a draw play but took a big time helmet-to-helmet hit from Rams safety Darian Stewart. He was lying on the field for a minute or two before walking off under his own power. William Powell is next in line. Check back for updates.

David Johnson (wrist) is back to 100 percent health.

Johnson is finally healthy after his injury cost him all but one game and 17 touches. It will be an offseason of change for Johnson, who must adjust to a new coach and is headed into the final year of his rookie contract. Although Bruce Arians relies on three-down bellcows to an unusual degree, whomever replaces him will do the same with Johnson. Johnson turned 26 in December.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are open to using the No. 11 overall pick on a quarterback "if he is the best player on their board."

Reporter Adam Beasley dropped the nugget in a Thursday article about Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield posting on social media "#GetMeToMiami." Mayfield was commenting on an Instagram video posted by Kenny Stills. Mayfield seems likely to be a first-round pick, but just where that might be is anybody's guess at this stage of the process.

Tom Brady (hand) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

The Boston Globe reported that Brady had resumed practicing, but the team evidently didn't feel he did enough to earn a "limited" tag. Brady was again held back from the media Thursday after being scheduled to talk, while backup Brian Hoyer was cagey about the starter's status. It remains nearly impossible to believe that Brady will miss Sunday's AFC Championship Game, but his status cannot be taken for granted. We should get something resembling clarity on Friday.

Steelers promoted QBs coach Randy Fichtner to offensive coordinator.

This was the expected move after the Steelers let Todd Haley's contract expire. Haley and Ben Roethlisberger seemed to detest each other, while Ben apparently has a strong relationship with Fichtner. A Steelers assistant since 2007, Fichtner had served as QBs coach since 2010. He knows the offense inside and out. Neither personnel nor scoring points were a problem in 2017. Although Haley remains somewhat underrated as an offensive mind, Roethlisberger and company shouldn't miss a beat under Fichtner.

Devonta Freeman (MCL, PCL) does not require surgery.

Freeman finished the season playing through MCL and PCL sprains. Including the postseason, he averaged just 2.64 yards per carry over his final four games. Freeman should be ready to rock for the offseason program.

Speaking Thursday, Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff said his "main focus" this offseason will be extending contract-year QB Matt Ryan.

Going on 33, Ryan followed up his MVP 2016 with a disappointing 20-score campaign but didn't take any physical steps backward. He had the looks of a player who should remain the answer under center for at least 2-3 more seasons. Any extension would have to make Ryan one of the 2-3 highest-paid players in the league.

Falcons OC Steve Sarkisian will be retained for 2018.

"Placing blame on one person would be wrong in this instance," coach Dan Quinn said Thursday. "If this was about one person, that decision would’ve already been made." Sark had been loosely connected to the Seahawks' offensive coordinator vacancy, but Pete Carroll hired Brian Schottenheimer. The Falcons' offense took a mammoth step backward this season, with its points per game dropping from 34 to 22. Matt Ryan and company were always expected to regress in 2017, but the fall off was far more dramatic than expected. Sark will be on the spot in 2018.

Rex Burkhead (knee) is practicing Thursday.

Burkhead sat out the Divisional Round despite practicing all week, so getting in work Wednesday and Thursday does not guarantee he will suit up. Still, he seems to be trending the correct direction. Even if Burkhead plays, Dion Lewis should remain the lead back.

Leonard Fournette (ankle) is expected to practice Thursday.

Fournette was limited on Wednesday, and it is likely he will be again today. That said, even two limited practices to start the week is a good sign he will ready to face the Patriots on Sunday. Fournette struggled after aggravating the injury against the Steelers.

The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports Jets QBs coach Jeremy Bates is a "strong candidate" to replace ex-OC John Morton.

Despite a relatively successful season considering the talent, Morton was fired because of locker-room issues. Bates reportedly "had a significant role" in game-planning under Morton, so he could bring continuity without the off-field concerns. Mehta listed ex-Broncos OC Mike McCoy, Eagles QBs coach John DeFilippo, ex-Steelers OC Todd Haley, and Lions QBs coach Brian Callahan as external options.

TMZ Sports reports Emmanuel Sanders will not face charges stemming from a sexual assault case in Texas.

There is not much known about the case. TMZ reports felony 2 sexual assault accusations were brought against Sanders, but a grand jury "failed to find a bill of indictment" earlier this month, meaning there was not enough evidence to bring charges. Sanders appears to be in the clear legally, but the NFL is sure to investigate and could hand down a suspension.
