Nick Foles suffered a broken hand in the Eagles' Week 16 loss to the Redskins, and will be unavailable for Sunday's finale.

Foles suffered a hairline fracture that was only apparent after an MRI. He played through the injury for a chunk of Sunday's loss, but with the Eagles only playing for pride this week, there's no reason to push their rookie signal caller. Foles is expected to need only three weeks to recover. Coach Andy Reid has announced Michael Vick — who was a healthy scratch for Week 16 — will start in his absence. Thrown into the fire as a third-round rookie, Foles has had his share of struggles this season, but performed better than should have been reasonably expected. He'll finish with a 6:5 TD:INT ratio over 265 passes, and two 300-yard performances in his final three starts. Although his 60.8 completion percentage and 79.1 QB rating are hardly stellar, they're still solid for a rookie. Unless Philadelphia hires read-option maven Chip Kelly, the smart money is on Foles being the Eagles quarterback in 2013.

TMZ reports Raiders OLB Aldon Smith has checked into a rehab clinic.

It's his second rehab stint after going in 2013 following two DUI arrests. Smith is currently serving a yearlong suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He also made headlines earlier this week after a Periscope video surfaced that may have showed Smith smoking an unknown substance. It's great that Smith is finally seeking help, but only time will tell if it's enough to resurrect his career.

OT Jake Long's deal with the Ravens is officially off.

He declined to sign an injury waiver after Baltimore red-flagged his physical on Thursday. Long passed his exit physical with Atlanta last season and was deemed healthy by Dr. James Andrews last week. There's a good chance he'll catch on somewhere else as a camp flyer.

Titans signed WR Andre Johnson.

Johnson loves the AFC South. After spending his first 12 seasons with the Texans, Johnson joined the Colts last year only to have easily the worst season of his career. Johnson appeared to lose all of his separation skills and found it very difficult to get open in Indianapolis. He eventually lost two-wide snaps to Donte Moncrief and finished with a 41-503-4 line. Johnson is joining a crowded receiving corps in Tennessee, but the Titans could be looking at him more for leadership purposes with youngsters Dorial Green-Beckham, Justin Hunter, and Tajae Sharpe in need of guidance. Johnson and Harry Douglas could be competing for one roster spot.

Lions signed CB Darius Slay to a four-year, $50.2 million extension through 2020.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the deal contains $23 million fully guaranteed at signing. A sort of late bloomer who emerged as a legitimate shutdown corner last season, Slay should get more opportunities to shadow enemy No. 1 receivers this year. He finished 2015 as Pro Football Focus' No. 2-rated cornerback behind only Tyrann Mathieu, shining both in coverage and run support.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky expects the team to use a "split" backfield between James Starks and Eddie Lacy to begin the season.

Demovsky's theory is that the Packers will share work between Starks and Lacy in the first half of the year, and "ride Lacy down the stretch." Demovsky said the team did "didn't give Starks $3 million a year to not play." Starks was re-signed to a two-year, $6 million deal in March. He became a major asset as a receiver out of the backfield last year and is a big threat to Lacy's PPR value.

Appearing on Mike Clay's Sirius XM Fantasy Show, ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky predicted Davante Adams will open the season as Green Bay's No. 3 receiver.

Demovsky did acknowledge Adams will "feel the heat" from Jeff Janis, Jared Abbrederis, rookie Trevor Davis, and perhaps eventually injured Ty Montgomery. Per Demovsky, Janis is "still a raw guy," and it "seems he's just not there yet." Adams ranked dead last in the NFL in yards per target last season, dropped far too many balls, and generated nothing after the catch. The Packers are still hoping the light flips on for their 2014 second-round investment.

Jay Cutler said he thinks second-year WR Kevin White is "going to be something special."

"It’s just a matter of him letting those athletic gifts come through and him getting comfortable with the system and the verbiage and the splits and everything else that he’s going to learn, and being at a place where he doesn’t have to think and can just go out and play football," Cutler said. "I think once we hit a fast-forward button and get to that point, he’s going to be something special." After missing all of last season with a leg injury, White participated in his first-ever training camp practice this week. By all accounts, he's looked tremendous dating back to the spring. White is currently being drafted as WR30 in MyFantasyLeague.com drafts.

Steve Smith Sr. (Achilles', PUP) revealed he suffered a "double rupture" of his Achilles' last November.

It was the first double rupture renowned foot doctor Robert Anderson had ever seen. It looked like "raw, shredded chicken," according to Smith's wife, and "89" admits the pain was unbearable. Smith Sr. said he was on Oxycontin for 12 days following surgery, and later admitted he had thoughts of giving up his comeback when rehabbing the injury this summer. At 37, it's going to be incredibly tough -- borderline impossible -- for Smith to regain his previous form.

Dolphins DE Dion Jordan has been reinstated from his year-long suspension.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Jordan's reinstatement is conditional. He'll be in counseling and will be reevaluated ahead of the season. This at least gets him in the Dolphins' building and lets him practice and play meaningful preseason snaps after missing all of 2015. Miami is expected to hang onto Jordan and pay him a $1.69 million bonus he's due this week.

No. 3 overall pick DE Joey Bosa will not report for the start of Chargers training camp Friday.

Bosa didn't report to mandatory minicamp in June due to disagreements on offset language and bonus money payout terms in his rookie-deal negotiations. Those remain the sticking points. It's pretty ridiculous it's come to this. Since the new CBA was implemented with a rookie-wage scale, these contracts have become pretty rudimentary. Both sides need to figure it out ASAP.

Dolphins placed RB Arian Foster (Achilles') on the active/PUP list.

According to Dolphins beat writers, it's merely a precaution, as this is pretty typical for veterans coming off serious injuries. Foster has said he's healthy after tearing his Achilles' last year, but Miami is just taking it slow. Consider him day-to-day. When Foster is able to practice, he's expected to run with the starters.
