Chiefs OC Doug Pederson will be the Eagles' next coach. They have to wait for KC's season to end to make it official.

Fantasy Impact:

Pederson has served as the Chiefs' offensive coordinator for the last three years, though it's Andy Reid who calls the plays.

Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) took full practice reps again Thursday. Brady should be fine for Saturday.

Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) took full practice reps again Thursday. Manning will be able to face the Steelers on Sunday.

Broncos QB Brock Osweiler (knee) missed practice again Thursday.

Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (right finger) took full practice reps again Thursday. No worries here.

Thursday, January 14, 2016, 6:07pm

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (right shoulder) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Roethlisberger is expected to play, but isn’t close to 100% at this point. It’s a tough matchup against Denver, but the Steelers went pass-heavy when they played the Broncos in Week 15. Roethlisberger attempted 55 passes and threw for 380 yards and three touchdowns. He may be without his top weapon since Antonio Brown is iffy for Sunday.

Steelers RB Will Johnson (hamstring) took limited practice reps again Thursday.

Packers RB Eddie Lacy (rib) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Lacy should continue to play through the injury.

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) practiced fully Wednesday. We’ll see if Lynch makes the flight to Carolina.

Seahawks RB Will Tukuafu (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Thursday, January 14, 2016, 6:07pm

Chiefs RB Spencer Ware (ankle) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Ware figures to play against the Patriots. Ware out-touched Charcandrick West 16-to-9 last week against the Texans, and he also out-touched West 16-to-14 in Week 17. The ankle injury makes him tough to count on this week.

Panthers RB Fozzy Whittaker (ankle) missed practice again Thursday.

Thursday, January 14, 2016, 6:07pm

Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams (foot) missed practice again Thursday. Williams looks iffy for the Divisional Round. If he’s out, Fitzgerald Toussaint and Jordan Todman would split the work in the Pittsburgh backfield.

Thursday, January 14, 2016, 6:07pm

Packers WR Davante Adams (knee) missed practice again Thursday. Adams had a very good game against Washington, but went down with a knee injury in the second half. Jared Abbrederis would likely play 70% of the snaps is Adams is out. Coach Mike McCarthy said that Adams won’t play if he doesn’t practice this week.

Thursday, January 14, 2016, 6:07pm

Patriots WR Danny Amendola (knee) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Amendola should be able to play, but he’ll take a backseat to Julian Edelman this week.
