The Cardinals' website confirms that Beanie Wells (turf toe, I.R.) is ineligible to return before November 25 -- Arizona's Week 12 game.

Wells could offer some late-season fantasy value with Ryan Williams (shoulder surgery) done for the season, but he's not going to be back for nearly two more months. The Cardinals will ride a backfield committee of La'Rod Stephens-Howling, William Powell, and Alfonso Smith for now, while scouring the free agent market. Free agent Tim Hightower would be a sensible option, although it's unclear how far he is along in his latest knee rehab.

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports a group of the Steelers' limited partners want coach Mike Tomlin fired.

Tomlin has never had a losing season in 11 years with the Steelers while winning at least 10 games eight times, but that record has not prevented his name from popping up in rumors the last couple years. To be fair to the rabble-rousers, the Steelers have not been to the Super Bowl since 2010 and have made the Championship Game just once over that run, arguably an underachievement given the talent on the roster. Still, it remains unlikely Tomlin is shown the door, but perhaps the discontent will lead to changes to his staff. For what it is worth, Tomlin did not throw his support behind OC Todd Haley when given the chance during his season-ending press conference.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Eagles QBs coach John DeFilippo is expected to get a second interview for the Cardinals' head coaching vacancy.

DeFilippo is also thought to be Panthers DC Steve Wilks' top choice for an offensive coordinator if he lands a lead job, but DeFilippo remains in the running in Arizona himself. DeFilippo did surprisingly well as the Browns' coordinator in 2015 and has played a large role in Carson Wentz's development. It is only a matter of time until he lands a head coaching job.

On his radio show, Ben Roethlisberger hinted he wants Todd Haley to remain the offensive coordinator in 2018.

"The least amount of change the better," Roethlisberger said. "We don’t want to have big changes because we’re right there. We’re on the cusp." Ben went on to say the issues between he and Haley were "perceived as a bigger deal" than they were. Haley is not under contract for 2018, but these comments from Roethlisberger at least give him a shot to return.

Titans GM Jon Robinson has "zero concern" about Marcus Mariota playing for his third head coach since entering the league in 2015.

"Marcus is a pretty resilient guy. He’s a very mentally tough guy," Robinson said. "I have zero concern in Marcus being able to adapt and learn, and do what’s best to get the offense going." Yet another coaching change is a concern for Mariota's development, but having him play another year with a coaching staff he regressed under in 2017 was a bigger worry. Assuming Robinson finds the right coach, this move should be good for Mariota's future.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Steelers OL coach Mike Munchak will have a second interview for the Cardinals' head coaching vacancy.

Arizona will give other coaches a second interview as well, but this indicates Munchak is a serious candidate. Munchak spent 17 seasons with the Titans before being promoted to head coach in 2011, going 22-26 over three seasons. He has been with the Steelers since 2014.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot reports ex-Giants coach Ben McAdoo is interviewing for the Browns' offensive coordinator vacancy.

And Browns fans thought Mike Mularkey being linked to the job was as bad as it would get. McAdoo did have some success early in his run with the Giants, but his offenses were among the worst in the league the last two seasons even when Odell Beckham was on the field. Texans QBs coach Sean Ryan has also been linked with the job.

MMQB's Albert Breer reports Panthers DC Steve Wilks is still "in the mix" for the Cardinals' head coaching vacancy.

Vikings OC Pat Shurmur was reportedly the favorite in Arizona, but he appears poised to take over the Giants job. That would open the door for Wilks, who Breer reports would bring Eagles QBs coach John DeFilippo with him as offensive coordinator. Wilks will also interview for the Titans, where he presumably will make the same pitch.

Bucs GM Jason Licht said Doug Martin "wasn't ever the same" after returning from suspension.

Martin looked great in his first game back, rushing for 74 yards and a score on just 13 carries against the Patriots, but it was all downhill from there. He was disciplined for a team-rules violation in Week 13, and he watched Peyton Barber jump him on the depth chart. The Bucs can wipe all of Martin's $6.75 million salary off the cap by cutting him. It would be a shock if that did not happen.

A.J. McCarron said he wanted the "opportunity" to start in Cleveland.

McCarron was all but traded to the Browns at the deadline, but the paperwork was not filed in time. "I think I would have had some success playing for Hue," McCarron said. "I would have loved the opportunity to go up there and get them a win, more than one win." While he was specifically talking about the Browns, it is pretty clear McCarron is just tired of being a backup. Whether he is deemed a restricted or unrestricted free agent at a hearing on February 15, McCarron will likely do everything he can to get out of Cincinnati this offseason.

Rams OC Matt LaFleur will interview for the Titans' head-coaching vacancy on Thursday.

LaFleur just wrapped up his first season as offensive coordinator after coaching the Falcons' QBs under OC Kyle Shanahan the previous two seasons. 38-year-old LaFleur is an outside-the-box name but one that is certainly worthy of consideration after what the Rams were able to do offensively under Sean McVay. LaFleur may not be ready for the jump, but many thought the same of McVay. LaFleur has learned under some of the brightest offensive minds in the sport.

Seahawks hired Ken Norton as defensive coordinator.

Norton coached the Seahawks' linebackers from 2010-2014 and is a "comfortable" hire, reuniting with Pete Carroll. He signed a deal on January 8 to work as the 49ers' assistant head coach/linebackers, but Norton can break that contract for a higher-up position. Norton coordinated abominable defenses in Oakland the past two years. After his firing this past season, the Raiders' defense played better down the stretch under John Pagano. Both of Seattle's coordinator hires -- including OC Brian Schottenheimer -- have been thoroughly uninspiring.
