ESPN's Paul Kuharsky says Delone Carter and Donald Brown will battle for just one roster spot at training camp.

Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard will be the primary ball-carriers, and seventh-round burner Kerwynn Williams is expected to return kicks. That leaves Brown, the disappointing former first-round pick, and Carter, a sluggish power back with a career 3.75 YPC average. We'd give the edge to Brown heading into camp. He simply has more natural talent.

According to ESPN's Vaughn McClure, Steven Jackson (quad) should be back for the Week 17 game against the Panthers.

Jackson strained his quad during the second quarter of Sunday's win at New Orleans and didn't return. That allowed Devonta Freeman to get some extra touches, turning one of the them into a 31-yard touchdown run and adding a 3-48-0 line as a receiver. The 31-year-old Jackson is averaging 3.72 YPC this season as the Falcons' feature back. If the Falcons beat the Panthers, they'll win the NFC South with a 7-9 record.

A source tells PFT that the Cardinals will not release Larry Fitzgerald this offseason.

Fitzgerald carries an exorbitant $23.6 million cap number for 2015 as part of the eight-year, $128.5 million contract he signed in 2011. Per PFT, the future Hall of Famer could be traded, restructure his deal or lower his cap number via an extension of some sort -- but he won't be cut. Of course, this could be a leverage leak from the team looking to maintain some kind of trade market for a 31-year-old receiver who has just 61 catches, 755 yards and two touchdowns in 13 games this season.

Coach Chip Kelly said Mark Sanchez, not Matt Barkley, will start Week 17's meaningless finale against the Giants.

With Sanchez's one-year contract set to expire, there's been a lot of talk in Philadelphia that Barkley should start Sunday so the Eagles can see what they have. Kelly doesn't want to hear it. It's both an indictment of Barkley and affirmation that Kelly is going to play this game to win -- not evaluate. The Eagles have lost three straight games under Sanchez, getting eliminated from the playoffs while Week 1 starter Nick Foles (collarbone) continues to rehab. Foles' rookie deal is up after the 2015 season.

Aaron Rodgers strained a calf muscle during Sunday's Week 16 win at Tampa.

Rodgers suffered the pull during the second series, limiting him a bit throughout the game. He still finished 31-of-40 for 318 yards with a touchdown even though Mike McCarthy admitted he had to change his play-calling a bit to keep Rodgers in the pocket. "It got really tight about halftime," Rodgers said. "Came in and got a little treatment and it loosened up a tad but it was still pretty tight, and I had hard time running." Rodgers will be fine for Week 17's NFC North showdown with the Lions, the question will just be how close he is to 100 percent.

Kyle Orton completed 32-of-49 passes for 329 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Bills' 26-24, Week 16 loss to the Raiders.

The loss eliminates the Bills from the playoffs. Orton's stats don't look bad on paper, but his interceptions were killers. His first one went to Charles Woodson over the middle trying to get it to Scott Chandler, while the second one came late in the fourth quarter again down the middle of the field on an overthrow. Orton breathed life into the Buffalo offense when he first got the nod to start, but he's since been exposed. The Bills will wrap up their season in New England. E.J. Manuel may get the call under center.

Odell Beckham caught eight passes for 148 yards with two touchdowns in Sunday's 37-27 Week 16 win at St. Louis.

Despite repeated cheap shots and dirty plays from the Rams, Beckham was literally unstoppable once again. He put his freaky change-of-direction skills and route-running ability on a 9-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Later on, he put the safeties on skates for a 80-yard score. Beckham is now up to an absurd 79-1,120-11 line during a rookie season in which he's only played 11 games. That includes at least six catches and 90 yards in each of his last eight outings. Beckham will feast against the Eagles in next week's meaningless finale.

Tony Romo completed 18-of-20 passes for 218 yards and four touchdowns in the Cowboys' NFC East clinching win Week 16 against the Colts

The Colts could do nothing to stop Romo, who at one point completed 16 straight passes. Indianapolis was able to hit Romo once all game, and with basically unlimited time Romo was able to pick apart their secondary, setting a club record with a 90 percent completion percentage. Romo now has 10 touchdown passes and zero interceptions in December. The Cowboys still have an outside shot at a first-round bye, but they could choose to limit Romo in the regular season finale against Washington.

With the Cowboys leading 35-0, DeMarco Murray (hand) is getting the tape cut off his hand and appears to be done for the day.

Murray played 30-of-49 offensive snaps before getting pulled, turning 22 carries into 58 yards and a touchdown. He was not targeted in the passing game. Murray was clearly hampered by the hand injury. He carried the ball almost exclusively in his right hand and seemed wary of using his hands to block in pass protection, instead attempting to essentially tackle the blitzing defender. Murray did not suffer any setbacks, but with the NFC East already locked up, the Cowboys may decide to rest Murray in the season finale against Washington.

Johnny Manziel (hamstring) is considered questionable for the Week 17 finale against Baltimore.

Manziel first hurt his hamstring midway through the first half and then left for good after taking a hit from Colin Jones. "As I kept walking more and more, it just felt like something I hadn't experienced before," he said. "I figured I needed to get checked out. Pretty frustrating." Through two NFL starts, Manziel is 13-of-26 for 112 yards with zero touchdowns and two interceptions.

Lamar Miller rushed 19 times for 92 yards and a touchdown and caught five balls for 58 yards in the Dolphins' Week 16 win over the Vikings.

Miller was very active in the receiving game early, amassing four receptions for 52 yards in the first half alone. He did get tripped up from behind on a 12-yard second-quarter screen pass that nearly went for a touchdown. Miller was Miami's entire offense in the first half, amassing 104 total yards in the initial two quarters. Miller put the bow on his blowup game with a one-yard touchdown run early in the fourth. Miller has shown the ability to be a quality feature back this season, following a disappointing 2013. The Dolphins will finish their season against the Jets in Week 17.

Owner Stephen Ross said Joe Philbin will return as the Dolphins head coach in 2015.

Ross met with reporters in the locker room following Sunday's 37-35 win over the Vikings. "Here's a Christmas present," he said. "You don't have to ask me anymore. He has one year left on contract and is coming back." So Philbin will be back even though his three seasons in Miami have resulted in a 23-24 record and zero playoff berths. Therefore, we can project another boring season for the Dolphins that sees the players fail to respond to their flat-lining head coach. Philbin has the temperament of a cantaloupe, and too often his team plays as such.
