The Falcons will move Vic Beasley back to defensive end in 2018.

Beasley's sack total dipped all the way from 15.5 in 2016 to 5.0 in his 2017 transition to strong-side linebacker. "I have re-assessed it," coach Dan Quinn said. "I’m going to put him full-time, all-the-time back at pass rusher. I thought it was best for the team even though some of his production would go down. His best role is doing what he does. He won’t go back to linebacker."

Saints RT Zach Strief is considering retirement.

Strief is recovering from November ACL surgery. He's signed through 2018 but there's concerns about his health and role with Ryan Ramczyk locked in as the Saints' right tackle. Strief would likely have to settle for swing duties if he returns.

Bills LT Cordy Glenn (foot) is on track for OTAs.

Glenn spent the final five weeks on IR with lingering foot/ankle issues. There's rumblings Buffalo could move on from him, but Glenn should be healthy for the start of their offseason program. Glenn has three years and $23M remaining on his contract.

Leonard Fournette (ankle) was left off the injury report for Sunday's AFC Championship game.

Fournette aggravated his ankle in the Divisional Round and was limited early in the week. His status was never in doubt. Fournette should see another heavy workload after getting 27 touches in Jacksonville's upset of the Steelers.

Redskins signed OG Orlando Franklin to a reserve/future contract.

Franklin spent most of the year out of the league before signing with the Redskins in October. He was released after one appearance, making him eligible for a futures deal. Franklin was a six-year starter prior to this season and provides veteran insurance with Trent Williams recovering from knee surgery. It's a low-risk flyer for Washington.

Steelers WR Eli Rogers suffered a torn ACL in the Divisional Round.

The timing of the injury will sideline Rogers well into the 2018 season. It's a worst case scenario, though Rogers may still be re-signed as a restricted free agent. The Steelers will need to find a replacement for Rogers as the No. 4 receiver behind Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Martavis Bryant.

Mike Gillislee (knee) is questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship game against Jacksonville.

Gillislee is closer to returning than he was last week, but his status remains up in the air. Even if healthy, Gillislee isn't a lock to be active.
Jan 19 - 4:07 PM

Rex Burkhead (knee) is questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship game against Jacksonville.

Burkhead was limited in practice all week. He was held out of the Divisional Round but looks on track to return. The Patriots also listed Mike Gillislee (knee) as questionable.
Jan 19 - 4:04 PM

Tom Brady (hand) is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship game against Jacksonville.

Brady returned to a limited practice Friday. He needed four stitches to his knuckle after hitting a teammate's helmet on Wednesday but isn't dealing with any structural damage. Brady is fully expected to play through his questionable tag and his hand injury shouldn't impact his passing.

Dolphins hired Clyde Christensen as director of football and player development.

Christensen was removed as offensive coordinator but will stay in Miami in a different role. The Dolphins are going with Dowell Loggains to replace Christensen, though Adam Gase will continue to call plays.

Eagles LB Dannell Ellerbe (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Vikings.

Ellerbe has been dealing with hamstring issues all year. He started the last two games of the regular season and the Divisional Round, where he was on the field for 23-of-63 snaps. Ellerbe should play through his questionable tag.
Jan 19 - 2:30 PM

Tom Brady (hand) declined to say if he'll play in Sunday's AFC Championship game.

Brady confirmed he returned to practice Friday but didn't offer much on his status. There should be more clarity when the Patriots release their injury report. Brady is expected to be fine for Sunday's matchup with Jacksonville.
Jan 19 - 2:12 PM

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer expects S Andrew Sendejo (questionable, concussion) to play in the NFC Championship game.

Sendejo needs to clear the concussion protocol but he's on track to be active. The Vikings should be close to full strength for Sunday's game with the Eagles.
Jan 19 - 1:32 PM

Adam Thielen (back) is questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Eagles.

Thielen has been working through a low back issue all week. He's fully expected to play after practicing on a limited basis the last two days. Thielen may not be 100 percent but should be fine for his normal snaps.
Jan 19 - 1:17 PM

Robby Anderson was arrested and charged with harm to a public servant/family, reckless driving, eluding police, and resisting arrest Friday morning in Florida.

Anderson was arrested in Florida last offseason as well at a music festival. This one sounds a bit more serious, however, though little details are known at this point. Coming off a breakout 2017, this is the last thing Anderson needs.
