NFL Network's Mike Mayock told reporters on a conference call Monday that Oregon DE/LB Dion Jordan has "Aldon Smith potential" in the pros.

"He's two years away from being an Aldon Smith-type player," Mayock said of Jordan. "He's got frightening athletic skills. He’d be a situational pass rusher year one." Smith was a situational pass rusher in his first NFL season, as well. Truly an athletic freak at 6-foot-7, 230, Jordan is Mayock's top-rated outside linebacker prospect for the 2013 draft. A full rundown of Mayock's rankings are accessible at the link below.

Patriots WR Michael Floyd is a healthy scratch for the AFC Championship Game.

Floyd was dreadful in last week's win over the Texans, and is paying the price with everything on the line for the Patriots this evening. Malcolm Mitchell is active, and should return to his pre-Floyd snaps/usage level.

Ladarius Green (concussion) is inactive for the AFC Championship Game.

Green's concussion has lingered long enough that he should be considered no better than 50-50 for a potential Super Bowl appearance in two weeks. Also inactive for the Steelers are WR Demarcus Ayers, QB Zach Mettenberger, CB Al-Hajj Shabazz, LB L.J. Fort, DE Johnny Maxey and OT Brian Mihalik,

Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is active for the AFC Championship Game.

With Michael Floyd a healthy scratch, Mitchell should see a ton of snaps against the Steelers. In addition to Floyd, inactive for the Patriots are QB Jacoby Brissett, RB D.J. Foster, OT LaAdrian Waddle, CB Cyrus Jones, CB Justin Coleman and S Jordan Richards.

FOX's Jay Glazer reports Julio Jones is playing through three separate foot injuries in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

Per Glazer, Jones has two ligament issues in his toe in addition to a "mid-foot" ailment. Glazer says Jones is playing though a "lot" of pain. Jones caught two passes on Atlanta's opening drive, so the injuries haven't been an issue on the field yet.

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports the Falcons will look at Chip Kelly to replace likely-departing OC Kyle Shanahan.

Shanahan is fully expected to become the 49ers' next head coach, leaving the Falcons with a vacancy at coordinator. Kelly was a serious candidate for the Jaguars' coordinator job and will reportedly meet with Bill Belichick about a position with the Patriots. Switching to Kelly's scheme would be a risk for the most potent attack in the league, but it is reasonable to believe Kelly will have much more success if he is allowed to just focus on the offensive side of the ball. Even so, the Falcons would be wise to look for some continuity with their next coordinator.

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 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.
