Percy Harvin tweeted Tuesday evening that his hip injury will require surgery.

He'll go under the knife Thursday. Harvin hinted the operation will be season-ending, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports he could return in 3-4 months. PFT reports he'll be back "late in the season." At the very least, Harvin is staring at a six-game stay on PUP. An official timeline should emerge in short order. It's obviously a devastating blow for the Seahawks, who were counting on Harvin to add a new dimension to their well-oiled read option attack. As it is, Golden Tate will revert to being Seattle's primary playmaker at receiver, while the onus will be on Sidney Rice (knee) to stay healthy. Between his signing bonus and salary, Harvin is bringing home $14.5 million this season after the Seahawks surrendered three draft picks including their 2013 first-rounder for his services. Where Harvin's "injury prone" label was once unwarranted, that is no longer the case.

Colts fired GM Ryan Grigson.

Grigson's status had been up in the air since the end of the season. The Colts are finally moving on after years of draft and free agency misses. Grigson's clashes with coach Chuck Pagano had also become a distraction over the last two-plus seasons. It's an overdue move for a Colts team that's missed the playoffs in consecutive years. President of Football Operations Jimmy Raye is a candidate to replace Grigson if Indy stays in-house. Owner Jim Irsay has been pushing Peyton Manning for a front office role.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the 49ers would go "hard" after Kirk Cousins if he is available.

Even if the Redskins hit Cousins with another franchise tag, Schefter reports the 49ers may be willing to part with a trade package that includes the No. 2 overall pick to land the quarterback. With former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan almost certain to take over as head coach, Cousins would likely be open to a move to San Francisco. There is little doubt Washington will place the exclusive franchise tag on Cousins if the two sides cannot work out a long-term deal, but even that might not be the end of the saga.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Chip Kelly will meet with Bill Belichick after missing out on the Jaguars' offensive coordinator job.

Kelly was believed to be a strong candidate for the coordinator job in Jacksonville, but coach Doug Marrone decided to stick with long-time ally Nathanial Hackett. That leaves Kelly without a job, but Mortensen thinks New England is a "logical landing spot." Kelly and Belichick have a long-standing football relationship which goes back to Kelly's time at Oregon. It would not be surprising to see him land there.

Impending free agent Cordarrelle Patterson said he felt wanted by the Vikings this season.

Patterson said he "didn't feel wanted" by Minnesota during Mike Zimmer's first two years in charge and was focused on "trying to get out." Patterson had a change of heart this season, likely in no small part because he actually had a role on offense, and now wants to stay. Price will likely determine if the Vikings feel the same way, but they should be interested in keeping around a guy who has led the league in kick return average three of the last four seasons.

Colts GM Ryan Grigson said he "definitely" wants to re-sign impending free agent TE Jack Doyle.

This, of course, assumes Grigson will still be the general manager, but it looks like he is safe at this point. Doyle had a breakout 2016, hauling in 59 passes for 584 yards and five touchdowns. All three numbers eclipsed his career totals entering the year. Doyle is not the type of dynamic receiving threat which commands big dollars on the open market, but he should be looking for more than the three-year, $13-million deal Brent Celek landed last January.

Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones said the team is "penciling in" LB Jaylon Smith (knee) "as a big-time contributor."

The Cowboys have been consistently optimistic about Smith's ability to return from the gruesome knee injury he suffered in the Fiesta Bowl last January. The injury resulted in nerve damage which has been slow to repair, but Smith said he is getting closer to normal. He might never be the top-ten pick he was before the injury, but it looks like Smith will at least be able to contribute. He is expected to get on the field in OTAs.

Scout.com's Ben Standig reports Rob Kelley underwent surgery on his right knee following Washington's season-ending loss to the Giants.

Kelley suffered the injury in Week 16, played with a brace against the Giants, and had the knee operated on shortly after the loss. A source told Standig the surgery was "relatively minor" and "dealt with the meniscus." Kelley averaged just 3.33 yards per carry over the Redskins' final six games and showed next to no passing-game ability. He'll face competition for his starting job in 2017.

Chargers hired Gus Bradley as defensive coordinator.

Bradley previously flirted with the Redskins and drew interest from the 49ers. A Pete Carroll disciple, Bradley installed a Cover 3 scheme in Jacksonville and the defense was coming together nicely with a young talent core just as Bradley was fired. In Jason Verrett and Casey Hayward, and Joey Bosa, Bradley is inheriting a Chargers defense with some important building blocks in place.

Sports Illustrated's Mike Silver reports the 49ers are still pursuing Gus Bradley for their vacant defensive coordinator position.

Bradley had his sights set on reuniting with Tom Cable, but he recently withdrew his name from consideration for the Niners' head-coaching job. The Niners are reportedly "upping their offer" to Bradley, so it looks like they're fairly serious about bringing him on board. Bradley has also been linked to vacancies in San Diego and Washington this offseason.

Sammy Watkins underwent foot surgery on Friday, January 20.

The Buffalo News previously reported Watkins needed more surgery, so this note is just for bookkeeping purposes. The Bills announced the procedure and claimed Watkins should be ready for training camp in 2017. Watkins has now undergone two surgeries to address a Jones fracture in his foot. Not yet 24 years old, Watkins will need to overcome repeated early-career injury setbacks in order to realize his immense NFL ceiling.

Aaron Rodgers admitted to reporters that he felt under the weather on Friday.

"Rest fluids, all that stuff," Rodgers replied when asked what measures he's taken to deal with the illness. "We'll be okay. Jordy (Nelson) had it. Mason (Crosby) had it. I got it. We'll deal with it." Rodgers confirmed a flu or cold has been going around the team. It prevented Nelson from practicing on Friday. Rodgers did practice fully Friday and is not listed on the injury report.
