Team sources tell the Union-Tribune San Diego that Chargers owner Dean Spanos plans to fire both coach Norval Turner and GM A.J. Smith at season's end.

According to long-time Chargers reporter Kevin Acee, Spanos has "resigned himself to the fact that Smith can't be kept in the current environment of plummeting performance and fan unrest," and that plans to can both Turner and Smith are "already in motion." Spanos was widely expected to replace his football brain trust last season, but had a last-minute change of heart. Per Acee, "it seems certain" that will not be the case this time around. Spanos is reportedly planning to replace Smith with current Chargers Director of Player Personnel Jimmy Raye.

Alvin Kamara has cleared the concussion protocol.

As promised, Kamara is good to go for Week 15. The likely Rookie of the Year has been an absolute monster since the Adrian Peterson trade and will be a rock-solid RB1 against the Jets. He's RotoPat's No. 2 running back for Week 15.

Damien Williams (shoulder) is doubtful for Week 15 against the Bills.

Williams resumed practicing on Thursday but it doesn't look like he'll be game-ready for at least another week. The Dolphins can afford to take their time with Kenyan Drake playing so well. In the likely event that Williams sits, Drake will be an RB1 against Buffalo.
Dec 15 - 3:05 PM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien expects DeAndre Hopkins (toe) to play Week 15 against the Jaguars.

Hopkins hasn't practiced the last two days but O'Brien still expects him to tough it out Sunday at Jacksonville. He's averaged a remarkable 121.6 yards over his last seven games and will be a must-start if active, even against a tough Jaguars secondary.
Dec 15 - 2:33 PM

Bengals WLB Vontaze Burfict (concussion) will not play in Week 15.

The Bears' running game trampled Cincinnati sans Burfict last week. Burfict's absence bodes well for both Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon.
Dec 15 - 2:33 PM

LeSean McCoy (knee) wasn't listed on the Bills' final injury report for Week 15 against the Dolphins.

He didn't practice on Friday but it was probably just a rest day. McCoy, who has now cleared 1,000 yards rushing in four of his last five seasons, will be a solid RB1 against Miami.
Dec 15 - 2:09 PM

Updating an earlier report, Kyle Rudolph (ankle) is doubtful for Week 15 against the Bengals.

Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported earlier that Rudolph had already been ruled, but instead the Vikings listed him as doubtful. Either way, he's a long shot to play. Look for David Morgan to spell Rudolph at tight end against the Bengals.
Dec 15 - 2:06 PM

Joe Mixon (concussion) is questionable for Week 15 against the Vikings.

Mixon resumed practicing on Thursday but has yet to clear the concussion protocol. Giovani Bernard would fill in again if Mixon can't get the green light.
Dec 15 - 1:42 PM

Kyle Rudolph (ankle) is out for Week 15 against the Bengals.

He didn't even practice this week. With Blake Bell (shoulder) headed for I.R., David Morgan will fill in at tight end against Cincinnati. He'll be backed up by Kyle Carter, who was called up from the practice squad on Friday. Consider Rudolph week to week.
Dec 15 - 1:20 PM

Devin Funchess (shoulder) is questionable for Week 15 against the Packers.

The Panthers keep listing Funchess as questionable, even after a full practice Thursday, but he's going to play and is a locked-in WR1/2 option in a heavyweight NFC showdown against a terrible Packers pass defense.
Dec 15 - 12:57 PM

DeAndre Hopkins (toe) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

Hopkins was absent Thursday as well after he wasn't even on the injury report Wednesday. It's hard to see Hopkins sitting against the Jaguars, but his status is certainly in question. The Texans will release a final injury report this afternoon. It's possible Hopkins will be a game-time decision.
Dec 15 - 12:54 PM

Matt Forte (knee) is questionable for Week 15 against the Saints.

He's looking like a game-time call the second week in a row. If Forte sits, Bilal Powell would get a big boost after he and Bryce Petty showed a bit of a connection last season. Powell would emerge as a strong RB2 play.
