Ben Roethlisberger (ribs) is active and starting Sunday's Week 14 game against the Chargers, as expected.

Per ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Roethlisberger could have pushed it and played last week. We'd expect him to be have few limitations as a QB2 in his first game since going down Week 10. The Steelers have no surprises in their inactives: : LB LaMarr Woodley, T Mike Adams, CB Ike Taylor, QB Byron Leftwich, RB Rashard Mendenhall, G John Malecki and DL Al Woods.

Following the reinstatement of Martavis Bryant, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Sammie Coates is "on notice" and competing for a job with Justin Hunter.

Antonio Brown, Bryant, Eli Rogers, and (likely) Darrius Heyward-Bey are locks to make the team. That leaves Coates, Hunter, Cobi Hamilton, and Demarcus Ayers as the current Nos. 5-8 wideouts in no particular order. Coates had a horrific 2016 season filled with drops, but he did suffer a mangled hand that severely limited him much of the second half of the year. Hunter is a similar player with big talent who hasn't been able to put it together, but Big Ben is best QB he's ever had.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bucs have talked with "at least three teams" about moving back in the first round and possibly out of round one altogether.

Tampa Bay isn't alone in wanting to move back. It's far easier said than done because most teams want to keep their second- and third-round picks in what is perceived to be a draft class that lacks star talent but is thought to be extremely deep. Many teams in the second half of Round 1 will probably be working the phones on Thursday night trying to move back and stock picks.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Titans "already have received offers" for their No. 5 overall pick and are contemplating a trade to move back in the draft.

Most teams in the top-10 apparently want to move back, but you have to find a trade partner. Titans GM Jon Robinson might have one, and he sits in a good spot just ahead of the Jets at No. 6. Teams may be looking to jump ahead of New York possibly for a quarterback, and No. 5 could be a landing spot for the Browns looking to come up from 12th overall. Tennessee doesn't currently own a second-round pick, and word is they want one or more of them for Friday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Raiders and Marshawn Lynch have agreed to a two-year contract.

Lynch will be in Oakland on Wednesday to take his physical, and if/once he passes the Raiders and Seahawks will finalize a trade. Deadlines spur action, and before the start of the draft on Thursday was when everyone involved wanted to get this thing done. Lynch turned 31 last week and was showing signs of decline in 2015 with Seattle. Maybe the year off did his body some good.

In the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's poll of 16 NFL scouts, 11 voted LSU's Jamal Adams this year's top draft-eligible safety.

Ohio State's Malik Hooker garnered four first-place votes, and Michigan's Jabril Peppers received the final one. In the Journal-Sentinel's "points" system based on the scouts' rankings, Adams, Hooker, and Peppers rounded out the top three followed by UConn's Obi Melifonwu (4), Washington's Budda Baker (5), Utah's Marcus Williams (6), Florida's Marcus Maye (7), and N.C. State's Josh Jones (8). "The West Virginia kid (Raiders 2016 first-round pick Karl Joseph) wouldn’t be in the top 10 of this group," one AFC executive said. "I’ve looked at it over and over. It’s as deep a safety draft as I’ve ever seen."

In a poll of 17 NFL scouts, 14 voted Ohio State's Marshon Lattimore this year's top cornerback prospect.

Alabama's Marlon Humphrey, USC's Adoree' Jackson, and Washington's Kevin King got the final three first-place votes. In the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's "points" system, Lattimore came in first among draft-eligible corners followed by 2) Humphrey, 3) Ohio State's Gareon Conley, 4) Washington's Sidney Jones, 5) Jackson, 6) LSU's Tre'Davious White, 7) King, and 8) Florida's Quincy Wilson. "This is probably the best group of corners I’ve done in years and years," said one longtime NFC executive. "I see seven in the first (round), for sure."

Speaking with league sources, NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah came away with the opinion that he "wouldn't be shocked" if Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey is picked before the Panthers' selection at No. 8 overall.

Per Jeremiah, McCaffrey and Temple LB Haason Reddick are two of the "hottest" names in league circles at the moment. McCaffrey has long been connected to the Panthers at No. 8, but his stock continues to soar and it sounds like there's a real possibility he could be the top back off the board. We'd still bet on it being LSU's Leonard Fournette, but McCaffrey likely won't be far behind. "He produces points," Jeremiah's sources said about McCaffrey as the reason teams love him.

According to the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, the "rumor in league circles" is the Bears are "pondering" Stanford DE Solomon Thomas, LSU S Jamal Adams, and Ohio State CB Marshon Lattimore if they stay put at No. 3 overall.

But Biggs' gut feel is that he "can't see how" the Bears fail to come out of Round 1 without a quarterback, especially if they are able to swing a deal to move down the board. Of course, that would require a trade partner, and there are a number of other teams in the top-10 trying to move down. Biggs thinks UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky may be squarely in Chicago's crosshairs.

According to the Chicago Tribune, there was "scuttlebutt in league circles" Monday night that the 49ers could take Leonard Fournette at No. 2 overall.

Ex-NFL personnel man Greg Gabriel tweeted something similar on Tuesday. The Chicago Trib's Brad Biggs also passes along "chatter" that the Jaguars are looking into quarterbacks at the No. 4 pick, while it's believed at least half of the teams drafting inside the top ten hope to move down. If a team like the 49ers can't execute a move down the board, we suppose it's possible they could settle for someone like Fournette. It's been reported that the 49ers are considering "giving up" on contract-year RB Carlos Hyde due to persistent injuries.

Rams franchise player Trumaine Johnson is open to an extension.

Franchised two years in a row then placed on the trade market, Johnson's situation in Los Angeles has seemingly turned toxic, but he's open to staying if the Rams are willing to pay up. Everything the Rams have done the past two years has suggested they are not. The sides have until July 15 to work something out.

Ohio State CB Gareon Conley will meet with Cleveland police on Monday.

Accused of rape, Conley "fervently" denies the allegations. A projected first-round pick, Conley had been in Philadelphia for the draft, but has returned home. Much like La'El Collins two years ago, it's possible Conley goes from Day 1 to undrafted if his situation doesn't have a sense of resolution by Thursday. Seeing as he's not meeting with police until next week, teams are extremely unlikely to feel comfortable with his situation by draft time.
