Chiefs named LBs coach Gary Gibbs defensive coordinator.

Head coach Romeo Crennel has demoted himself. It's a start for the 1-7 Chiefs, but certainly too little, too late. Along with GM Scott Pioli, neither coach is likely to remain with the team through the offseason. Gibbs is tasked with improving a unit allowing 30 points and 347.5 yards per game. It won't be easy, but things can't be as bad as they were under a distracted Crennel.

Sources tell the Washington Post it's "highly unlikely" Robert Griffin III will return to the Redskins next season.

On draft day in 2012, the Redskins gave the Rams their first-round picks in 2012, 2013 and 2014 in addition to a 2012 second-rounder for the right to take Griffin No. 2 overall. He was spectacular while leading the Redskins to the playoffs as a rookie, but suffered a career-altering ACL tear in the Wild Card game against the Seahawks. Since then, RG3 has tanked in terms of on-field performance, getting benched by Mike Shanahan late last year and again by Jay Gruden this year. Gruden appears to have convinced meddling owner Dan Snyder that the Redskins need to find a quarterback that fits his pocket-passer scheme, meaning Griffin can likely be had for pennies on the dollar this offseason.

Sources close to the situation tell the Philly Inquirer that Nick Foles' (collarbone) best case scenario would be a Week 16 return.

Foles will have a followup appointment next week. The Philly Inquirer's Jeff McLane reports Foles' initial timetable of 6-8 weeks was likely on the optimistic side, and the collarbone must be "more than" fully healed in order to prevent against doing further damage to the bone. As Mark Sanchez has become increasingly turnover prone the more he's played, the chances have increased of Foles regaining his starting quarterback job when healthy.

The Houston Chronicle considers Arian Foster (groin) "likely" to return to the starting lineup in Week 13 against the Titans.

Foster resumed practicing Wednesday after two games off, and "looked pretty good," coach Bill O'Brien said. If Foster starts, he'll be a top-shelf RB1 against a Titans defense serving up season-best rushing days left and right.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) says he'll play Week 13 against the Colts.

Reed got in a limited practice Wednesday, participating in individual drills. His Week 11 hamstring injury will end up costing him just one game. With Colt McCoy's insertion into the lineup, Reed makes for an interesting TE1 streaming option in a game the Redskins will likely be playing catch-up.
Nov 26 - 3:48 PM

Latavius Murray (concussion) is practicing Wednesday.

Murray still hasn't gained full clearance, but he's now on track to play against the Rams. Barring a setback, he should start and handle the majority of carries, with Marcel Reece likely mixing in on third downs. Coming off his breakout 112-yard, two-touchdown game last week, Murray will be a high-upside RB2/FLEX option.
Nov 26 - 3:17 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

He's "making some progress," but remains highly questionable for Week 13 against the Falcons due to a sprained MCL. If Fitzgerald can't go, Michael Floyd and John Brown get serious boosts, while Jaron Brown would also be on the radar as the No. 3 receiver. Consider Fitzgerald 50-50 for Sunday.

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells reports Boom Herron will continue to start over Trent Richardson.

Coach Chuck Pagano would only say that Herron "may" start again this week against the Redskins because he practiced so well leading up to Week 12, but most Colts beat writers get the impression it'll be Herron getting the nod over Richardson again. This comes two days after Richardson said he didn't start last week because he was recovering from the flu. We didn't buy it. It really doesn't matter, as the two will split reps, but it shows the Colts are higher on Herron than sloth-like T-Rich in the backfield.
Nov 26 - 2:20 PM

Jordan Cameron (concussion) is practicing Wednesday, but remains day-to-day.

Coach Mike Pettine said, "We're looking for [Cameron] to practice symptom-free for a couple of days in a row. Still day-to-day." If Cameron can string a few practices together this week, he'll likely be active for Week 13 against the Bills after missing the past four games. He's a high-upside add for the stretch run.
Nov 26 - 1:24 PM

Coach Jay Gruden confirmed Colt McCoy will start Week 13 against the Colts, and Robert Griffin III has been benched.

Gruden said he believed McCoy deserved a promotion. The Redskins likely would have won last week in San Francisco had McCoy been under center. McCoy won't be a recommended fantasy option, though he could rack up garbage-time numbers as a QB2 on Sunday in Indianapolis. DeSean Jackson remains a WR2 with big-play upside. Alfred Morris's stock may take the biggest hit, as he's always had more success running the ball with RGIII under center.
Nov 26 - 12:12 PM

Odell Beckham (back) is practicing in full for Week 13.

Beckham took a knee to the back last Sunday night and missed one play before returning. He admitted he was sore Monday, but his status for Week 13 against the Jaguars was never in doubt. This confirms it. Beckham will be a borderline WR1/2 against Jacksonville's burnable secondary on Sunday.

The Jets have named Geno Smith their starting quarterback for Week 13 against the Dolphins.

Unfortunately, we'll all be subjected to this nightmare of a quarterback situation on Monday Night Football. At this point, it doesn't even matter who starts under center for the Jets. Both Smith and Michael Vick are beyond horrible, having nothing but a negative effect on the entire pass game. Eric Decker and Percy Harvin don't receive a boost or downgrade, while Smith is obviously not even an option in two-quarterback leagues. GM John Idzik likely forced coach Rex Ryan's hand here to get one last look at Geno.
