Bears released RE Julius Peppers.

Chicago was shopping Peppers but predictably found no takers for the 34-year-old and his loaded 2014 salary. The move saves the Bears $14 million in cash and over $8 million against the cap. Peppers is still a productive player but isn't worth nearly that kind of coin. The eight-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro has 119 career sacks and 40 forced fumbles. He should garner some interest.

NFL suspended Panthers WLB Thomas Davis two games for Sunday's illegal helmet-to-helmet hit on Packers WR Davante Adams.

Davis' hit left Adams concussed and forced the Packers to hospitalize him during the game. Davis apologized to Adams on Twitter on Monday, but the league is having none of it. ESPN's Adam Schefter makes it clear Davis will appeal the ban. If Davis loses, he will miss Week 16 against the Bucs and Week 17 against the Falcons.

Colts placed C Ryan Kelly (concussion) on injured reserve, ending his season.

2017 was a disappointing season for 2016 first-round pick Kelly, who struggled across seven starts, missing time with both a broken foot and a concussion. We would expect Kelly to have a bounce-back season in 2018 after an offseason to rest and rehab. The Colts also placed run-stopping ILB Jon Bostic (knee) on I.R.

The Eagles could rest starters in Week 17 if they clinch home-field advantage for the playoffs in Week 16.

The Eagles can clinch home field with a Week 16 win over the Raiders, who are traveling to Philly. The Eagles will also clinch if the Vikings lose this week to the Packers. "I'm going to be smart about the decisions we make moving forward and getting guys who need the rest, if possible," said coach Doug Pederson on Monday. Perhaps most telling was Pederson's suggestion that he wants backup QB Nate Sudfeld to get snaps at some point in the final two games. "Ideally, yeah, you'd like to get (Sudfeld) some time and some reps here in the next couple of ballgames," Pederson said.

The Jets still are not considering starting Christian Hackenberg at quarterback.

Bryce Petty was predictably awful in New Orleans on Sunday, but the Jets don't want to subject fans — or planet earth — to Hackenberg. It's truly remarkable that a team in the Jets' quarterback situation isn't trying to force a former second-rounder onto the field. It tells you all you need to know about Hackenberg's NFL future. His 53-man roster spot will be in grave danger next summer.

Raiders LT Donald Penn requires foot surgery and is done for the 2017 season.

Penn seemed to know his season was through when he went down Sunday evening. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports he has ligament damage. The Raiders' blindside protector since 2014, 34-year-old Penn hasn't missed a game since coming onto the regular season scene in 2007. Even at his advanced age, he remained one of the league's best left tackles this season. Penn is headed to free agency, but the Raiders would undoubtedly like to bring him back.

DeShone Kizer will remain the Browns' starting quarterback for Week 16 against the Bears.

Kizer has made precious little progress this season, taking a 9:19 TD:INT ratio into Week 16. 1-29 coach Hue Jackson simply made the decision it's worth giving Kizer maximum time under center as opposed to rolling with not-the-quarterback-of-the-future Cody Kessler. Kizer will almost certainly struggle mightily on the road against the Bears.

The Cardinals will bench QB Blaine Gabbert for Week 16 against the Giants.

Arians had originally said he would stick with Gabbert. He changed his mind after watching the Week 15 film. The Cardinals more than once publicly posited that Gabbert could be their 2018 quarterback, but his play predictably grew progressively worse. Gabbert would have already been out of the league were he not a former first-rounder. Drew Stanton will start Week 16, and presumably Week 17. 28-year-old Gabbert is headed to free agency.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Marqise Lee (ankle) is expected to return "by the playoffs or sooner."

Lee suffered a sprained ankle Week 15 against the Texans. Despite the good news, it does not seem likely he is ready to face the 49ers on Sunday. Unless Allen Hurns (ankle) makes a surprise return, Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole will be the Jaguars' top two receivers in San Francisco.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Tom Savage (concussion) may miss the rest of the season.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported it is likely Savage sits out the rest of the season after suffering a nasty concussion in Week 14, and O'Brien admitted it is a possibility during Monday's press conference. T.J. Yates will continue to start while Savage is sidelined.

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said he has yet to decide who will start at quarterback this week.

Brock Osweiler played well in relief of Trevor Siemian last week, but Joseph admitted they "want to see Paxton [Lynch] play some" to close out the season. If Lynch's ankle injury allows him to suit up this weekend -- he is expected to practice on Wednesday -- he will almost certainly be the one under center against the Redskins. Lynch was awful in his only other start this season before being forced from the game by the ankle injury. No matter who starts, Washington will be a good DST option this week.

Broncos placed Trevor Siemian (shoulder) on injured reserve.

This was expected after Siemian dislocated his shoulder last Thursday night. Unfortunately, this was the only quarterback news out of Denver on Monday as coach Vance Joseph said he has yet to decide who will start the final two games. Following a promising debut last season, Siemian took a big step back in his third year. The Broncos need to find a better answer at the position this offseason.
