Cecil Shorts will remain the Jaguars' starting "X" receiver even though Laurent Robinson (concussions) is ready.

Shorts is playing so well that the Jags can't afford to take him off the field. Over the last two weeks, the second-year man out of Mount Union has totaled 12 catches for 195 yards and a touchdown. Shorts is a legit playmaker on a team desperate for one and is a legit WR4 with upside in fantasy circles. Robinson or Justin Blackmon will get some reps in the slot now that Mike Thomas has been shipped out of town.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Adam Thielen (questionable, back) is dealing with a "couple of slight fractures" in his lower back.

Thielen suffered the injury on a hit from Marshon Lattimore late in last week's win over New Orleans. Per Rapoport, Thielen's injury is "extremely painful," though he plans to gut it out against the Eagles in Sunday's NFC title game. Stefon Diggs could be in for a bigger workload this week with Thielen operating at much less than 100 percent.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Ohio State co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day is a candidate for the Titans' offensive coordinator position.

Day has worked with Chip Kelly on several occasions (he also played for him at the University of New Hampshire), most recently serving as his QBs coach when Kelly held the head job in San Francisco in 2016. Marcus Mariota thrived in Kelly's fast-paced scheme at the University of Oregon and could have similar success under Day. Tennessee featured one of the league's slowest offenses with Mike Mularkey calling the shots in 2017.

Adam Thielen (questionable, back) will play in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Eagles.

He missed some practice time with a lower back injury this week, though his status for Sunday was never in question. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Thielen will be playing through "plenty of pain," so it's fair to question how effective he'll be or if the Vikings would even consider using him as a decoy. If Thielen is limited or suffers an in-game setback, it would open up targets for Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Tom Brady will "probably" wear a glove on his injured right hand in Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Jaguars.

Multiple sources including ESPN's Dianna Russini have confirmed that Brady will start Sunday's AFC title game despite missing practice time with a cut that required four stitches. Some quarterbacks use gloves for a better grip—Teddy Bridgewater, Peyton Manning and Kurt Warner are notable examples—though Brady has never worn one on his throwing hand. Athletes are creatures of habit and any change to their routine is significant, though most reports suggest Brady looked like his normal self at practice on Friday and shouldn't be limited at all against Jacksonville.

Rex Burkhead (questionable, knee) will be active for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Jaguars.

It will be his first game action since Week 15. The versatile Burkhead finished the regular season on a four-game touchdown streak, though it's hard to gauge how he'll be used following a month-long absence. Dion Lewis will remain the lead ball-carrier against Jacksonville.

The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe reports Tom Brady's injured right hand is expected to be "just fine" for Sunday's AFC Championship game.

Various other reporters have echoed the same sentiment. It's believed Brady suffered a cut on his hand in Wednesday's practice significant enough that he required stitches, but Howe says TB12 underwent "thorough" treatment the rest of the week, allowing the hand to heal properly. Brady is still expected to sport a glove on the hand in an attempt to prevent any further injury, but he should be near 100 percent versus Jacksonville.

Titans hired Mike Vrabel as head coach.

A Pro Bowl linebacker as recently as 2007, Vrabel climbed the coaching ranks quickly, pitstopping for three years at Ohio State before spending 2014-2016 as the Texans' linebackers coach, then succeeding Romeo Crennel as Texans defensive coordinator in 2017. Albeit in large part due to unfortunate injuries, Vrabel's 2017 Texans defense was a bottom-ten unit, particularly struggling against the pass. Arguably more important than Vrabel's hire will be whomever he chooses to run Tennessee's offense. The development of 24-year-old Marcus Mariota will have the biggest impact on the direction of the Titans' organization.

Impending free agent Le'Veon Bell reportedly missed almost all of the Steelers' final walkthrough the day before last week's Divisional Round loss to the Jaguars.

Additionally, coach Mike Tomlin has told players and coaches to arrive two hours before kickoff for games. Bell (and reportedly one coach) arrived to last Sunday's playoff loss "much later than that," even after skipping all but the final five minutes of Saturday's walkthrough. Bell is headed for intense contract negotiations, of course, and the Steelers have leaked negative info about players in similar situations before, most notably Antonio Brown. Whether it be from the Steelers or another team, Bell is going to get paid this offseason.

Bengals owner and president Mike Brown thinks the team can "quickly rebound" under Marvin Lewis.

Brown was largely encouraged by late-season wins over the Lions and Ravens, and he seems to think the team was a bit unlucky despite issues throughout the roster. "We lost a handful of games that were games we could’ve, should’ve won," Brown said. "And if we had managed to win our share of those, we would’ve been out of that middle group of teams." Despite Brown's optimism, the Bengals have several roster holes to fill, especially along the offensive line.

Ian Rapoport reports Tom Brady threw the ball "incredibly well" during Friday's practice.

After getting four stitches to his knuckle early in the week due to a collision with Rex Burkhead, Brady should be good to play against the Jaguars. Without any structural damage, his injury shouldn't impact his passing. Brady is a top-tier play despite the tough matchup against the Jaguars.

Tom Brady (hand) is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship game against Jacksonville.

Brady returned to a limited practice Friday. He needed four stitches to his knuckle after hitting a teammate's helmet on Wednesday but isn't dealing with any structural damage. Brady is fully expected to play through his questionable tag and his hand injury shouldn't impact his passing.
