Leonard Fournette was removed from the final injury report for Week 10.

Fournette practiced in full all week, so it is not a surprise he avoided any injury designation. A setback cannot be ruled out given what has happened to this point in the season, but Fournette appears to be back at full health. He will be an upside RB2 in a good matchup against the Colts.

Lions hired ex-Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell as offensive coordinator.

The Lions were turned down by many other candidates, but they finally found someone to take the job. Bevell was interviewed for the Falcons and Jaguars openings, but those jobs went to Dirk Koetter and John DeFilippo, respectively. Bevell will now call plays for defensive-minded coach Matt Patricia, who ran the offense into the ground in his first year on the job by putting shackles on OC Jim Bob Cooter and Matthew Stafford. As a run-first guy, Bevell fits Patricia's personality. The Lions will be better off once Patricia is out of Detroit.

1010 XL Jacksonville's Hays Carlyon believes the hiring of OC John DeFilippo "strengthens the possibility" of the Jaguars "making an aggressive play" for Nick Foles.

Foles will have plenty of suitors once he and the Eagles decide the best course of action for him. One thing seems certain -- Foles is highly unlikely to remain in Philly after the Eagles again committed to Carson Wentz as their quarterback. DeFilippo was Foles' position coach in 2017 with the Eagles when they won the Super Bowl on Foles' back. The Jaguars' obvious top need is finding a quarterback. Blake Bortles and his $21 million cap hit are on the way out the door.

Falcons DE Takk McKinley is back home in Oakland following his mental evaluation in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

A friend reportedly became "concerned" about McKinley's mental health at a hotel on Tuesday and requested police. McKinley cooperated, underwent the evaluation, and is now back home, so nothing was apparently wrong. McKinley can go about his normal day-to-day life in prep for 2019.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Cardinals interviewed ex-Packers OC Tom Clements for their offensive-coordinator vacancy.

Clements was one of Mike McCarthy's right-hand men in Green Bay for a decade from 2006-2016 before being removed from his duties. He called the Packers' plays in 2015 but had those duties stripped by McCarthy following subpar results. Clements spent 2017 and 2018 out of the league but was part of Aaron Rodgers' development and could be sought to do the same for Josh Rosen. New Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury has been eyeing veteran NFL coaching talent.

Broncos hired 49ers QBs coach Rich Scangarello as offensive coordinator.

Scangarello, 46, is a Kyle Shanahan disciple having worked with him in Atlanta and San Francisco following numerous jobs around the lower college ranks. He's a relative unknown but is now being tasked with running the offense in Denver alongside new defensive-minded coach Vic Fangio. Scangarello will have OL coach Mike Munchak to lean on, and we expect this offense to be run-oriented based on both Munchak and Shanahan's histories on hammering the run.

Jaguars hired ex-Vikings OC John DeFilippo as offensive coordinator.

40-year-old DeFilippo got his NFL coaching start under Tom Coughlin with the Giants and now rejoins him in Jacksonville. This will be DeFilippo's third stint as an OC. He called the plays for the 2015 Browns, getting career years out of Travis Benjamin and Gary Barnidge. DeFilippo then became the Eagles QBs coach and got a lot of notoriety for his work with Carson Wentz and Nick Foles en route to a Super Bowl win. His 13-game run as the Vikings OC in 2018 ended disastrously, but DeFilippo was stuck with an old-timer coach in Mike Zimmer who wanted to run the ball and play defense. This, however, is another stop in Jacksonville where the Jaguars are built the same way. The dots are already connecting on Foles potentially landing with the Jaguars as their new quarterback.

ESPN Bucs reporter Jenna Laine believes there's a "real chance" Tampa Bay releases DT Gerald McCoy this offseason.

McCoy has three years left on his contract but has no guaranteed money remaining, and the Bucs can save $13 million against the cap by cutting him. McCoy turns 31 next month, but his production has remained steady. McCoy has at least six sacks in six straight seasons and received strong marks for his run defense in 2018. The Bucs have a ton of key free agents and may need the money freed up in order to sign those players, specifically LT Donovan Smith.

Broncos hired ex-Bears DBs coach Ed Donatell as defensive coordinator.

New Broncos coach Vic Fangio's top lieutenant in Chicago, Donatell will serve in the same role in Denver. 61-year-old Donatell has had a long and winding coaching career, coordinating multiple defenses both in the pros and college. His last NFL coordinating job was with the Falcons from 2004-06. We would assume Fangio will serve as his own play-caller.

ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton speculates Cam Newton could sit out the entire 2019 season if he undergoes another shoulder operation.

It's pure speculation, and not particularly informed, though owner David Tepper also casually mentioned the possibility of Newton sitting out in 2019. "If you told me he took a year off and could recover and be fully recovered and everything else, and that's what it took, an extra year, why wouldn't you do that," Tapper asked rhetorically on Tuesday. At least as of January, that scenario does not seem particularly likely. Newton is opting for rest and rehab before deciding on his second operation in three years.

49ers hired ex-Broncos DC Joe Woods as passing-game coordinator (defense).

Woods spent the past two years working for Vance Joseph in Denver. He will work under Robert Saleh in San Francisco, apparently overseeing his pass defense.

Jets hired Gregg Williams as defensive coordinator.

Williams was somewhat of a laughingstock as Browns defensive coordinator in 2017, but he did a better job in 2018 as he served as interim head coach. Devoted to aggression and deep safety drops, Williams has coached just about everywhere and overseen some strong defenses, most famously the Super Bowl winning Saints in 2009. He has some interesting pieces to work with in New York, but he's inheriting a unit that was nothing special in 2018. He figures to butt heads with coach Adam Gase.
