CBS Sports' Jason LaCanfora confirms Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder) is "doubtful" to play in Week 11 versus the Ravens.

Coach Mike Tomlin deemed Big Ben questionable, seemingly in deference to the quarterback's history of coming back well ahead of normal timetables on previous injuries. A source tells LaCanfora, however, that doubtful is more accurate than questionable. The Steelers are still awaiting further test results on Roethlisberger's injury, so it's still possible that this could be an extended absence.

Ladarius Green said he isn't considering retirement.

"Frustrating season but everybody has one," said Green after Pittsburgh's season-ending loss to New England in the AFC Championship Game. "I'm going to go train as soon as I get home, and hopefully next season works out a lot better." Green is probably understating it by calling his first year in Pittsburgh a disappointment. He sat out the season's first nine games while recovering from offseason ankle surgery and later missed five more games after suffering a concussion in Week 15. The Steelers could certainly use another receiving threat to pair with Antonio Brown, but trusting Green to stay healthy is a fool's errand at this point.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said OC Kyle Shanahan will be free to interview for the 49ers' head-coaching vacancy on Saturday.

Shanahan's second interview with the Niners keeps getting pushed back because the Falcons keep on winning. The Falcons will have a normal week of practice before traveling to Houston on Sunday, leaving Shanahan free to interview on Saturday. The Niners' head-coaching job is Shanahan's to lose after most of the other candidates dropped out including Seahawks OL coach Tom Cable and Patriots OC Josh McDaniels.

Le'Veon Bell rushed six times for 20 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game Sunday in the Steelers' AFC Championship Game loss to the Patriots.

Bell exited with a left groin injury late in the first quarter. He returned later in the half before leaving again on the same drive. Bell remained in uniform for the duration of the game, though it was pretty obvious he wasn’t coming back in. He ended up playing just 11 snaps while ceding workhorse duties to DeAngelo Williams. It was a disappointing end to a marvelous year for the fourth-year back. Bell is headed for free agency but the Steelers have made it clear they plan to give him the franchise tag if the two sides are unable to reach a long-term deal. You could make an argument for taking Bell first overall in fantasy drafts next summer, though Arizona’s David Johnson is also in that conversation.

Ben Roethlisberger completed 31-of-47 passes for 314 yards with one touchdown and one interception Sunday in the Steelers' AFC Championship Game loss to the Patriots.

Roethlisberger matched Tom Brady punch for punch in the first half, completing 16-of-22 passes for 136 yards before the break. New England pulled away in the second half, however, and Roethlisberger couldn’t do much to stop the bleeding. Roethlisberger didn’t have much success throwing deep, often settling for check-downs to Jesse James and slants over the middle to Eli Rogers. His fourth-quarter interception was nowhere close to his intended target. Roethlisberger redeemed himself by throwing a 30-yard touchdown pass to Cobi Hamilton on the following drive, but it was too little too late. It didn’t end the way he would have liked, but Roethlisberger was still pretty darn good this year, even with a relatively thin receiving corps. It would be a huge boost to Roethlisberger and the entire passing game if suspended wideout Martavis Bryant returns to start opposite Antonio Brown next season.

Julian Edelman snagged eight-of-10 targets for 118 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game win over the Steelers.

Edelman has been rolling since Rob Gronkowski went out with a season-ending back injury and that trend continued in Sunday’s AFC title game. He ate up 41 yards on a catch-and-run on the Patriots’ opening drive and never took his foot off the gas. Edelman scored his fifth career playoff touchdown on a 10-yard strike from Tom Brady late in the third quarter. He’s now the Patriots all-time leader in postseason receiving yards with 937 and also set an NFL record with Chris Hogan for the most receiving yards by two teammates in a postseason game. This marks Edelman’s third trip to the Super Bowl.

Chris Hogan corralled nine-of-12 targets for 180 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game win over the Steelers.

If they ever make a 30-for-30 about Hogan’s career, this game might be a good place to start. There was legitimate concern about how effective Hogan would be this week after sporting a noticeable limp in the locker room after Friday’s practice. Hogan erased any doubts about his health by having the game of his life, setting career-highs in yards, catches and touchdowns. He ran circles around the Steelers’ overmatched secondary while breaking Deion Branch’s team record for the most receiving yards in a postseason game. Hogan was left wide open on his first touchdown of the night and later scored a 34-yarder on a perfectly executed flea-flicker by Tom Brady. Next up for Hogan and the Pats is a Super Bowl LI matchup against the NFC Champion Falcons. That game will be held in Houston two weeks from today.

Tom Brady completed 32-of-42 passes for 384 yards and three touchdowns and rushed four times for a loss of one yard Sunday in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game win over the Steelers.

Coming off a sluggish game against Houston in the Divisional Round, Brady was near-perfect Sunday in a convincing win over the Steelers. New England came out gunning, peppering the Pittsburgh secondary with short passes. That opened up things downfield for Chris Hogan, who led the way with a career-high 180 yards on nine catches. Brady delivered a spot-on flea-flicker to Hogan, who took it 34 yards for the score. He also dished out a 10-yard touchdown strike to Julian Edelman late in the third quarter, which essentially put the game out of reach. Brady is throwing the deep ball as well as he ever has and simply doesn’t make mistakes when he has time to throw. A win over the Falcons in Super Bowl LI would cement Brady’s status as the greatest quarterback of all-time.

Julio Jones caught 9-of-12 targets for 180 yards and two touchdowns in the Falcons' NFC Championship Game victory over the Packers.

Playing through what FOX's Jay Glazer described as three separate foot injuries, Jones dismantled the Packers' woeful secondary. The highlight was a 73-yard touchdown in the third quarter where Jones took ownership of Ladarius Gunter's soul. Jones is at far less than 100 percent health, but it hasn't been a problem on the field. With two weeks to heal up for Super Bowl LI, Jones is going to be a nightmare for either the Patriots or Steelers.

Aaron Rodgers completed 27-of-45 passes for 287 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the Packers' 44-21 loss to the Falcons in the NFC Championship Game.

After it initially looked like Rodgers’ 2015 funk was carrying over to another campaign, the best overall player in the league was transcendent the final two-thirds of the season. Rodgers posted a 30:3 TD:INT total over his final 11 starts, and tore up the Giants and Cowboys in the postseason before the Packers ran into the Falcons’ buzzsaw. Rodgers totaled 40 passing scores during the regular season, good for the second 40-TD season of his career, and 12th in league history. Now 33, Rodgers picked up a few soft-tissue injuries, but appeared in all 16 games for the third-consecutive year. If the Pack could ever get Rodgers a consistent running game or defense, they will win another Super Bowl.
Jan 22 - 6:31 PM

Matt Ryan completed 27-of-38 passes for 392 yards and four touchdowns in the Falcons' 44-21, NFC Championship Game victory over the Packers.

Ryan was scary good, surgically guiding the Falcons’ offense to score after score. He was doing so against a comically undermanned defense, but Ryan has been shredding all comers for all of 2016-17. He looked genuinely unstoppable this afternoon, spreading the ball around to every Falcons skill player and always locating the open man. He entered halftime with 271 yards. Ryan is the leader of a well-oiled machine, one that will have a great chance of bringing home the Falcons’ first Lombardi regardless of their Super Bowl LI opponent.

Patriots WR Michael Floyd is a healthy scratch for the AFC Championship Game.

Floyd was dreadful in last week's win over the Texans, and is paying the price with everything on the line for the Patriots this evening. Malcolm Mitchell is active, and should return to his pre-Floyd snaps/usage level.
