Ryan Fitzpatrick said the "story of the day" following Sunday's Week 9 loss to Houston was that "we've got to get" C.J. Spiller more touches.

Now both the head coach and starting quarterback are on record about Spiller's light workload. It seems they understand that six carries and 11 touches for one of the game's best offensive players isn't going to cut it. We still suspect Fred Jackson will start in Week 10, but Spiller should begin pushing toward the top of this timeshare. On the season, Spiller is averaging 7.2 YPC while F-Jax is at 3.7. The Bills are wasting their most explosive playmaker right now.

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.

Tom Brady (hand) is practicing Thursday.

Brady jammed his throwing hand when a teammate ran into him during Wednesday's practice. There never seemed to be much concern about the injury, however, with multiple reports saying he "should be okay." This practice backs that up. It would be a shock if Brady is not ready to face the Jaguars on Sunday.

Adam Thielen (back) participated in Thursday's practice.

Thielen sat out Wednesday with a lower back issue, but it never seemed like a real concern. Barring a setback, he should be ready to face the Eagles on Sunday.

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.

Seahawks DE Cliff Avril said he "definitely" thinks he will be able to play again but is "okay" if it does not happen.

After the season, coach Pete Carroll said Avril will "have a hard time" getting cleared to play again, but the player is cautiously optimistic. Still, playing football again is not his top priority. "I just want to get back to being able to move around and hopefully be able to get outside and play basketball with my kids," Avril said. "I definitely think I can get back on the field. If it’s possible, I will. But if not, I’m OK with that." Avril will turn 32 in April.

Colts signed WR DeAndre Smelter to a reserve/future contract.

A 2015 fourth-round pick of the 49ers, Smelter came out of Georgia Tech with mouth-watering traits but has battled injuries and coaching turnover in his career. The futures deal will allow him to spend a full healthy offseason with Indy.

The player rep for free agent Jarvis Landry told the Palm Beach Post his client will not accept a hometown discount from the Dolphins.

The Dolphins spent the entire 2017 season trying to trade Landry, so this isn't a surprise. "Take a discount? Absolutely not," said agent Damarious Bilbo. "This may be Jarvis’ first and last time to set himself up and his family up. He needs to strike and strike while the iron is hot." Landry is expected to target elite No. 1 receiver money. Davante Adams' recent four-year, $58 million extension figures to be a baseline for Landry's asking price.

A source told ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss that Tom Brady's injured hand "should be okay" for Sunday's AFC title game versus Jacksonville.

It's believed Brady jammed his throwing hand when a teammate accidentally ran into him on the practice field. Reports indicate it was a minor injury, although Brady may sit out Thursday's practice as a precaution. Particularly after they traded Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett, the Patriots badly need Brady under center. Their fallback option would be journeyman Brian Hoyer.
