Steelers ILB Larry Foote is out for the season after tearing his bicep in Sunday's Week 1 loss to Tennessee.

It's a blow to Pittsburgh's run defense, as they may now have to fall back on sixth-round rookie Vince Williams next to Lawrence Timmons. Foote, 34, was re-signed to a three-year, $5.5 million contract in the offseason. The Steelers also lost C Maurkice Pouncey to a year-ending injury in the opener.

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.

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.

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.

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.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Chris Hogan (thigh, questionable), Martellus Bennett (knee, questionable) and Malcolm Mitchell (knee, questionable) are all expected to play in Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Steelers.

Danny Amendola (ankle) wasn't mentioned, but he should be out there as well. With the exception of Rob Gronkowski (back surgery, I.R.) it looks like Tom Brady will have his full complement of weapons on Sunday. With Mitchell returning from a two-game absence, Michael Floyd could end up being a healthy scratch for the AFC title game.

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.
