FOX Sports' Alex Marvez reports the Texans will hire Romeo Crennel as defensive coordinator.

Marvez adds that new coach Bill O'Brien has decided to let all of the assistants from Gary Kubiak's staff out of their contracts, and that includes former defensive boss Wade Phillips. Crennel has been out of the league since "leading" the Chiefs to a 2-14 record in 2012. Long a two-gap 3-4 defensive coach, we hope Crennel doesn't turn J.J. Watt into a block-occupying defensive lineman, and rather allows Watt to continue to create havoc.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) was participating in individual work during Tuesday's practice.

Reed had been doing work on the side the last two weeks and likely needs to practice at least one day to play in Monday night's game against Seattle. Niles Paul (concussion) was also held out of Tuesday's practice, leaving Logan Paulsen to get reps with the first-team offense. Regardless, Reed needs to be owned in just about all formats as a true difference-making talent in the seam for Jay Gruden.

Ben Tate (knee) is practicing Tuesday.

It's Tate's first practice since suffering a right knee sprain in Week 1. He was reportedly moving well, putting him on track to return as the starter for Sunday's tasty matchup with the Titans. Previous speculation had Tate handling about 60 percent of the running back carries, with impressive riser Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West getting the rest.

Carson Palmer said the nerve in his shoulder hasn't progressed as much as he had hoped.

Palmer still thinks he can prove to coaches he's capable of starting Sunday's game at Denver. But nerve issues in throwing shoulders sap arm strength, a major concern for a player who needs the deep ball to be effective. Given how well Drew Stanton performed in the Week 3 upset of the 49ers, it's possible the Cardinals will err on the side of caution with Palmer. Consider him questionable for now.

Marvin Jones (foot) is expected to make his 2014 debut in Sunday night's game at New England.

We'd keep expectations in check initially as Jones practiced a grand total of one time during the offseason program and training camp. But based on talent alone, he'll pass up Mohamed Sanu quickly for outside receiving duties and become a major red-zone threat. Jones posted a 51-712-10 line last year despite playing on just 50.0 percent of the snaps. "Oh yes, I can't wait," OC Hue Jackson said when asked about Jones' return. "He can run and catch. Not only does he take the top off, he scores a lot of touchdowns, too."

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Raiders' first look for their new head coach will be Jon Gruden.

Gruden, the former Raiders head coach and current Monday Night Football color analyst, has been connected to a homecoming ever since leaving the Bucs in 2008. It's obvious he'd be the first choice for close friend and owner Mark Davis. However, there's a lot of doubt if this is the right time for Gruden to go back to Oakland. GM Reggie McKenzie has put together one of the worst teams in the NFL by trading for guys like Matt Flynn/Matt Schaub, drafting guys like D.J. Hayden/Menelik Watson and blowing cap space on washed-up veterans like Maurice Jones-Drew. No coach could make it work with this roster -- not even Spider 2 Y Banana.

Coach Rex Ryan said Eric Decker (hamstring) feels better now than he did at this time last week.

Decker was expected to be limited in Sunday's loss to the Lions, but ended up playing on 77.9 percent of the snaps and emerged with a 4-48-1 line on 10 targets. Most importantly, he made it through without setbacks and should be closer to 100 percent for the Week 5 game at San Diego. Despite the tough matchup, Decker's red-zone ability makes him a weekly WR2 candidate.

Raiders fired coach Dennis Allen.

This comes from FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, so we know it's legit this time after the Associated Press reported on Twitter late Sunday night that Allen was out, only to delete the tweet later. Allen isn't the main problem in Oakland, but he's the first one to take the fall. Others should be coming, and hopefully for the Raiders fans' sake it'll be GM Reggie McKenzie next. McKenzie went out and signed a plethora of over-the-hill washed-up veterans, and basically said, "Here ya go, Dennis. Good luck." Allen should take his fair share of blame, though. He's a defensive mind, and the Oakland defense flat-out stinks. Allen had an 8-28 career record.

Travis Kelce caught eight passes for 93 yards and one touchdown in the Chiefs' 41-14, Week 4 demolishing of the Patriots on Monday night.

Kelce was targeted a team-high nine times while only playing about 50 percent of the snaps. He dominated the first half, doing the bulk of his damage before the break and looking like his tight end counterpart across the field, Rob Gronkowski. A healthy Gronkowski before all the injuries, that is. Kelce was a man among boys, running around the Patriots' slow-footed linebackers and undersized safeties with ease. He can do so much damage post-catch with stiff-arms and by just plowing over defenders. We'd like to see the Chiefs play Kelce even more, but we're not complaining right now. He's a focal point of the pass offense and is seeing enough targets to lock himself in as a TE1. Through four games, Kelce is on pace for a 72-1,036-8 receiving line.

Jamaal Charles rushed for 92 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries in the Chiefs' 41-14, Week 4 win over the Patriots on Monday night, adding three catches for 16 yards and two more touchdowns.

Charles' ankle issue from Week 2 was a non-issue. He looked as quick as he has all season, especially around the edge. The Kansas City offensive line opened gaping holes and sealed the edges, allowing Charles and Knile Davis to combine for 199 total rushing yards. After a down first three weeks of the season, Charles is again staking his claim as the No. 1 overall fantasy running back. It won't be easy next week, however. The Chiefs will travel to San Francisco. The 49ers held LeSean McCoy to 17 rushing yards on ten carries this past Sunday.

Tom Brady completed 14-of-23 passes for 159 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Patriots' Week 4 blowout loss to the Chiefs on Monday night.

Brady was yanked early in the fourth quarter in favor of Jimmy Garoppolo after tossing a pick-six to Husain Abdullah. The Chiefs were up 41-7. In addition to his two interceptions, Brady lost a fumble inside his own 20-yard line on a strip-sack by Tamba Hali. As much as the Chiefs embarrassed the Patriots, New England's roster on the offensive side of the ball is even more embarrassing. Brady has nobody to throw to besides a slot receiver in Julian Edelman who can't win downfield and a less-than-100-percent Rob Gronkowski. New England has been painfully bad at developing receivers, and 37-year-old Brady is on pace for the worst statistical season of his career. He's a back-end QB2.

DeAngelo Williams told fans at a charity event on Monday that he has a high-ankle sprain and will miss a few weeks.

A severe high-ankle sprain usually calls for a 4-6 week timetable. Williams is already doubtful for Week 5, but he's now staring at a multi-game absence if he indeed has a high-ankle sprain. The Panthers' bye doesn't come until Week 12. Fozzy Whittaker, Darrin Reaves, and Chris Ogbonnaya will form a committee against the Bears. Jonathan Stewart (knee) is likely out at least another week.
