Eagles hired ex-Vikings OC Bill Musgrave as quarterbacks coach.

It's Mugrave's second stint with the Eagles; he was an offensive assistant in 1998. Most recently, Musgrave, 46, oversaw one of the least imaginative offenses in the league in Minnesota from 2011-2013. He struggled mightily to find ways to use Percy Harvin and took an absurd amount of time to get rookie Cordarrelle Patterson involved this past season. Musgrave replaces Bill Lazor as Philadelphia's quarterbacks coach. Lazor left to take the Dolphins' OC job.

Rams signed Jeff Fisher to a two-year extension through 2018.

God help us. Fisher has not had a winning season since taking over as head coach in 2012 and, last we checked, still thinks Danny Woodhead plays for the Patriots. Why the Rams would extend their incompetent, cartoon character of a head coach instead of casting him aside is beyond our comprehension. Fisher is on the cusp of becoming the losingest coach in NFL history. Guess this means we won't be seeing Eric Dickerson at the L.A. Coliseum for the next couple of years.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer is expected to return next week.

Zimmer had a follow-up surgery Friday, but it shouldn't keep him out another game. Barring any setbacks, he'll resume coaching next week. Zimmer will look to get Minnesota back on track after losing in six of the last seven weeks. The Vikings have a must-win game with Jacksonville in Week 14.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Lions are going to test Marvin Jones (thigh, questionable) in pregame warmups before deciding on his status for Sunday's game against the Saints.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport previously called Jones a "long-shot to play" but the Lions are leaving the door open just a crack. Per Schefter, Jones "looked better" at Friday's practice, which has given Detroit reason for optimism. The Lions play at 1 PM ET on Sunday, so we'll know his status in a couple of hours. His absence would be a boost to Golden Tate, Eric Ebron and even Anquan Boldin.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Jaguars coach Gus Bradley's firing is a "fait accompli."

One of the downsides of coaching an offseason darling is the backlash when that team disappoints, and it has looked for some time like that backlash would cost Bradley his job. The coach has certainly earned his pink slip, however. Bradley is just 14-45 in four seasons with the Jaguars, and he is certain to add several more losses to that record before the end of the season. More importantly from an organizational standpoint, Blake Borltes has regressed dramatically in his third year, and 2015 first-rounder Dante Fowler has barely been noticeable in his first healthy season. La Canfora reports the Jaguars will take a long look at reuniting with Tom Coughlin, 70, once Bradley is relieved of his duties after the season.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes the Saints could explore trading Brandin Cooks this offseason.

Cooks has been vocal about his shrinking role in the Saints' offense, which has led some to question his long-term future in New Orleans. As Rapsheet puts it, "there are only so many balls to go around." With Willie Snead still playing a major role and rookie Michael Thomas emerging as one of Drew Brees' favorite weapons, it makes sense for the Saints to see what they can get for Cooks this offseason. The Saints did something similar when they traded Jimmy Graham to Seattle in 2015. Cooks is on pace for 30 fewer targets than last season.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam spoke at an organization-wide meeting about the importance of staying the course despite the specter of an 0-16 season.

Jimmy Haslam reportedly blamed past regimes and his own quick trigger for the team's current predicament before stressing the need for continuity. The comments suggest the jobs of both coach Hue Jackson and EVP Sashi Brown are safe even if the Browns go winless, but Haslam has been impetuous in the past. Still, firing Jackson for not winning after completely gutting the team in the offseason would be a nonsensical move. Both he and Sashi should get some time to turn the organization around.

Tavon Austin (chest) is out for Week 13 against the Patriots.

His absence was widely expected after sitting out all three practices this week. Austin has been a disappointment this year, averaging less than 40 yards per game with only three touchdowns. Pharoh Cooper could see more work in the slot on Sunday but obviously isn't a fantasy option.
Dec 4 - 8:51 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tom Brady (knee, questionable) will play Week 13 against the Rams.

Schefter also reports Julian Edelman (ankle), Martellus Bennett (ankle, shoulder), and Chris Hogan (back) are "good to go." With Rob Gronkowski (back) done for the year, Brady will have to lean on Edelman and Bennett especially in the passing game, but Hogan and rookie Malcolm Mitchell should have expanded roles as well. Even with Gronk out, Brady remains a high-end QB1.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Eagles are expected to "make a strong push" to sign impending free agent DeSean Jackson this offseason

Jackson spent his first six years in Philadelphia before ex-coach Chip Kelly cut him over off-field concerns. Per Schefter, Doug Pederson is a "big admirer" of Jackson and "multiple teams" believe he'll return with Kelly gone. Jackson has had multiple injures in two of his last three seasons in Washington, but is still one of the top deep threats in the league. The Eagles' need for a receiver to complement Jordan Matthews makes them a strong landing spot for Jackson.

Aaron Rodgers (hamstring, questionable) is expected to play Sunday in Week 13 against the Texans.

Rodgers' status was never in much doubt after putting in a limited week of practice. After getting off to a relatively slow start, Rodgers has gone ballistic over his last six games, contributing 17 touchdowns and only three interceptions during that span. Even at less than 100 percent, he'll be an elite QB1 Sunday against Houston.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Colin Kaepernick will void his contract after the season to become a free agent.

Rapoport added voiding the deal would not "rule out a return" to the 49ers next season. Kaepernick is set to make $14.5 million in base salary if he sticks around in San Francisco next season, and even after a strong finish, it is unlikely he would get much more than the $7.5 million per year Robert Griffin III landed from the Browns on the open market. Perhaps he is so ready to get away from the 49ers he will take his chances, but this is more likely a negotiating ploy.
