Steven Jackson hinted on Thursday that he might retire at the end of the 2012 season.

"If I have to write my story," Jackson, 29, said, "I'd rather go out like Barry Sanders and leaving people to want more than to leave too late." When asked how many seasons are left for him, Jackson said laughing, "Maybe this last one. Those hits hurt." Jackson has a $7 million player option left on his contract for 2013 that he is fully expected to opt out of in order to seek a longer term deal on the open market. "I'll allow myself that time to sit back and reflect and think about things I've accomplished in my career and what I've done this season," he said. "And think about how much longer I want to play this game, as well." Jackson has rushed for 990 yards and four touchdowns on 246 carries this season. He's taken a beating over his career, totaling a whopping 2,784 touches over nine seasons.

Geronimo Allison (hamstring) is active for the NFC Championship Game against the Falcons.

Allison will suit up despite sitting out the entire week of practice. With both Jordy Nelson (ribs) and Davante Adams (ankle) also active, Allison's role is unclear, but it would not be surprising if either Nelson or Adams (or both) were not able to finish the game. Allison is as good a low-priced flier as any in DFS.

Davante Adams (ankle) is active for the NFC Championship Game against the Falcons.

As are Jordy Nelson (ribs) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring). Adams did not practice at all this week and reportedly did not run any routes in the pre-game warm-up. With Nelson back, it is possible Adams is nothing more than an emergency option. He is a risky DFS bet, albeit one with a sky-high ceiling.

Jordy Nelson (ribs) is active for the NFC Championship Game against the Falcons.

As are Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring). Despite being active, Nelson's ability to play a full complement of snaps is in serious question despite a Kevlar vest which he hopes will protect his broken ribs. Nelson is a dart throw at best in DFS, but he is a high-upside one.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Martellus Bennett will likely undergo offseason ankle surgery.

Rapoport revealed that Bennett has a cracked bone in his ankle and also has bone chips that will need to be cleaned out. It's pretty evident that Bennett has been playing at well less than 100 percent this season, but he still has yet to miss a game. Bennett was listed as questionable this week after briefly exiting with a knee issue during the Divisional Round, but should play his usual snaps in Sunday's AFC title game versus Pittsburgh.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports the Redskins are promoting OLBs coach Greg Manusky to defensive coordinator.

Gus Bradley, Mike Pettine and Rob Ryan also interviewed for the position. Manusky has nine years of coordinating experience including a four-year stint as the Colts' DC from 2012-15. None of those defenses in Indianapolis were anything special and the Redskins will likely stay with the 3-4 scheme they used under Joe Barry. It represents a bland hire for a Redskins' coaching staff that lost both of its top coordinators from 2016.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Falcons are expected to "explore" a contract extension with Matt Ryan this offseason.

After this season, Ryan will have two years remaining on his five-year, $103.75 million contract. Rapoport expects Ryan's agent Tom Condon to capitalize on his career-best season with the goal of making Ryan the league's highest-paid quarterback, a title currently held by Andrew Luck. Ryan's current annual salary is 11th-highest among NFL signal-callers. Ryan carries a $23.75 million cap hit for next season and an extension could help to reduce that number.

Jordy Nelson (ribs, illness, questionable) is expected to play with a Kevlar vest in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Falcons.

Nelson practiced twice this week but wasn't cleared for any contact. Under normal circumstances Nelson would likely have been ruled out, but instead he'll wear a protective vest made from Kevlar. Tony Romo wore a similar vest when he played through broken ribs a few years ago. Nelson is putting it all on the line for Sunday's NFC Championship tilt but it's unclear how effective he'll be or if the Packers plan on using him as a decoy. Davante Adams (ankle, questionable) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring, questionable) will also suit up on Sunday.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Ladarius Green (concussion, illness, questionable) is not expected to play in Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Patriots.

Green participated in two of the Steelers' three practices this week but hasn't passed the concussion protocol and appears to be headed for his fifth straight absence. James Harrison (shoulder, triceps), who is also listed as questionable, is expected to get the green light for Sunday's AFC title game.
Jan 22 - 8:56 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jimmy Raye III has emerged as the "clear favorite" to take over as the Colts' full-time GM.

Raye was installed as the team's interim GM after Ryan Grigson was let go on Saturday and it seems like only a matter of time until his "interim" label is removed. He's already on the books for an interview and is reportedly a favorite of coach Chuck Pagano. Raye has served as the Colts' VP of Football Operations since 2013. He's the son of former NFL offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye II.
Jan 22 - 8:54 AM

Colts owner Jim Irsay confirmed Saturday that Peyton Manning is not a candidate to replace Ryan Grigson at GM.

He also insisted that coach Chuck Pagano's job is safe, at least for 2017. Multiple sources have reported that Irsay was aggressively pursuing Manning before he fired Grigson, but it doesn't seem like the interest was mutual. Jimmy Raye III has taken over as the Colts' interim GM and has a good chance of retaining the full-time gig.
Jan 22 - 8:36 AM

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Jordy Nelson (ribs, illness, questionable), Davante Adams (ankle, questionable) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) will all be available for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Falcons.

Morgan Burnett is also expected to play after exiting last week's game with a thigh injury. Out of those four, only Burnett and Nelson were able to practice this week. Coach Mike McCarthy has acknowledged that if this were a regular season game, the receiving trio of Adams, Allison and Nelson would all be out this week. Jordy and company deserve credit for gutting it out at much less than 100 percent, but it's anyone's guess how long each player will last or how effective they'll be. Look for Randall Cobb and Jared Cook to be target hogs Sunday in what should be a high-scoring affair at the Georgia Dome.
