Raiders coach Dennis Allen said he expects Darren McFadden (ankle) to play in Thursday night's Week 14 game against the Broncos.

McFadden practiced all week and appeared close to playing in Sunday's loss to the Browns. Instead, he watched Marcel Reece lose tailback snaps to Jeremy Stewart as the two combined for 16 carries, 82 yards and no touchdowns. Perhaps DMC was held out due to the muddy conditions in Oakland. If 100 percent healthy and in game shape, he figures to seize control of this backfield as soon as Thursday night. The reeling Raiders, losers of five straight, are desperate for the talent infusion he can provide.

ESPN's Jenna Laine reports the case involving a wrecked DeSean Jackson vehicle that was found with bullets and marijuana is "inactive."

A vehicle registered to Jackson was found wrecked on Christmas Eve, but Jackson told police he wasn't driving, and that neither the bullets nor marijuana belonged to him. Police are not pursuing the case because they "don't have any witnesses or evidence to place the driver behind the wheel at the time of the crash." It sounds like a dead issue for the 31-year-old wideout.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Panthers could franchise tag free agent K Graham Gano.

That's instead of fellow free agent OG Andrew Norwell. As indicated by the name, the franchise tag was conceived for "franchise"-type players but is just as often used for players like Gano. Going on 31, Gano has been the Panthers' kicker since midway through 2012. He converted 29-of-30 field goal attempts in 2017. Tagging him would cost roughly $4.9 million.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Seahawks are unlikely to use the franchise tag on free agent DL Sheldon Richardson.

Per Rapsheet, the 'Hawks "want to keep" Richardson, but apparently not at the roughly $14.5 million it would cost under the tag. GM John Schneider could gamble that Richardson's market will be depressed thanks to his ever-present character concerns. Richardson tallied only one sack in 2017 but mostly played up to his standards.

Colts re-signed K Adam Vinatieri to a one-year, $3.625 million contract.

Vinatieri had made it clear he wanted to return for his 23rd season, so it was really only a matter of time. The future Hall of Famer will enter the season just 57 points behind Morten Andersen on the All-Time points list, a gap he should be able to close if he stays healthy -- he notched 109 last season.

The Saints and free agent Drew Brees will meet at the NFL Combine to discuss a short-term deal.

This year's Combine will be held February 27 until March 5, so it's just under a week away. Per NFL Network's Rapoport, the expectation is Brees will not try to "break the bank" by looking to become the NFL's highest-paid quarterback, which he conceivably could do. Instead, Brees is expected to seek $20-25 million annually, less than Jimmy Garoppolo's $27.5 million per year from the 49ers.

Andrew Luck (shoulder) has begun throwing weighted footballs and is reportedly "full steam ahead" for 2018.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport went as far as to say Luck's shoulder is "fine," and that the problems now involve "parts around Luck's shoulder," which to us just confirms Luck's throwing arm remains problematic. It's worth remembering that at this time last year the Colts were promising Luck would be ready for Week 1, and even activated him from the PUP list last September, giving off the impression he'd at last play at some point in the first six games. He wound up never playing a snap.

Broncos QB Chad Kelly has been working out with former Giants QB Phil Simms in advance of his first NFL season.

Last year's Mr. Irrelevant, Kelly missed his rookie season with wrist and knee injuries. He was declared fully health following the year. A favorite of Rookie Scouting Portfolio's Matt Waldman coming out of Ole Miss, Kelly showed NFL-caliber tools in college but struggled with off-field issues and health. As Trevor Siemian is limited and Paxton Lynch continues to look like a bust, Kelly is arguable the most talented quarterback on Denver's current roster. Kelly is the nephew and godson of Hall of Fame QB Jim Kelly.

Beat writer Hays Carlyon doesn't expect the Jaguars to be able to re-sign impending free agent CB Aaron Colvin.

Outside CBs Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye get all the love in Jacksonville, but Colvin is one of the best slot corners in the game and is/was a big part of the Jaguars' defense. Per Pro Football Focus, Colvin didn't allow a single touchdown in his coverage, and his 0.76 yards per snap in coverage was third-best among all slot corners. Colvin, 26, is one of the top corners set to hit the market.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Les Bowen reports "the goal" is for Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season, though he "could" be ready during the preseason.

Jeffery underwent surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff on Wednesday and could be sidelined upwards of six months. Even if he returns at some point during the middle of the preseason, it sounds like Jeffery is going to miss all of OTAs, minicamp, and training camp. The good news, however, is that the Eagles are bringing back the exact same offensive system, and Jeffery doesn't have to learn anything new on the field. However, there's a chance he could be rusty and not completely in game shape by the time Week 1 rolls around. Overall, it's not a huge concern.

CBS Indianapolis' Mike Chappell doesn't expect the Colts to re-sign impending free agent Frank Gore.

Gore turns 35 in May and is unlikely to have much of a market. He's clearly on the 18th hole of his decorated career and is trying to hang on for a chance at a Super Bowl. That's not going to happen in Indianapolis right now. Chappell guesses Gore's hometown Dolphins could be interested in him. The Colts are fully expected to use a high pick -- possibly No. 3 overall -- on a running back.

Free agent CB Vontae Davis is visiting the Raiders on Wednesday.

Davis has visited the Bills, Browns, and 49ers in the last week and is now onto Oakland. The 30-year-old (in May) is eligible to sign whenever he pleases and should be making a decision in the next two or three weeks before free agency opens on March 14. The Raiders already released CB David Amerson earlier this month and likely will do the same with CB Sean Smith sooner than later.
