Kerryon Johnson (ankle) is questionable for Week 10 against the Bears.

Johnson's been limited in practice all week, though we expect he'll play. If the rookie's absent, LeGarrette Blount would receive a few more carries. It's also possible the Lions mix in Zach Zenner in a lesser role to keep all fresh. Riddick would benefit the most as he remains the only back additionally involved in the team's passing game.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco suggested he'd be open to bringing back impending free agent Antonio Gates in 2019.

The Chargers planned to move on from Gates last season but wound up re-signing him after Hunter Henry tore his ACL at OTAs. "My heart says, yeah, he’ll be back next year," said Telesco. "But you put your G.M. hat on, and you look at what’s the role, where are resources are with the cap." Even if the Bolts re-up with Gates, the 38-year-old would just be Henry's backup.

Spencer Ware (hamstring) wasn't listed on the Chiefs' final injury report for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Patriots.

Neither were S Eric Berry (heel) or OG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (ankle). Ware will return from a four-game absence after putting in a full week of practice. Even with Ware available for the conference championship, Damien Williams should lead the Chiefs' backfield against New England.

Ben Watson (illness) is out for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Rams.

He's been in the hospital with appendicitis, though so far he's avoided surgery. It's a tough break for Watson, who plans to retire after the season. Josh Hill will pick up the slack in his absence. The 38-year-old should be available for Super Bowl LIII if the Saints advance.

Cowboys fired OC Scott Linehan.

This ends his five-year run in Dallas. The Cowboys were initially expected to retain Linehan, but obviously they had a change of heart. "This was not an easy decision because of how highly we regard Scott Linehan as a football coach and as a person," said coach Jason Garrett in a statement Friday. "He is an outstanding football coach, a great friend and we wish him and his family nothing but the absolute best moving forward." Garrett said the decision to part ways was mutual, but in reality, the Cowboys have been looking at outside OC candidates for the past several days. Outside of the always reliable Ezekiel Elliott and a late-season surge from Amari Cooper, the Cowboys' offense was nothing special this year. Ultimately, Dak Prescott should benefit from a more creative play-caller.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Eric Berry (heel) will play in the AFC Championship against the Patriots.

This was expected with Berry returning to full practice this week. Berry isn't 100 percent after sitting out the Divisional Round, but he's going to try to play his normal snaps for the AFC title game.

Cowboys DT Antwaun Woods is recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum.

Woods suffered the injury in the Cowboys' Divisional Round loss to the Rams, apparently playing through the ailment for much of the contest. It's a fairly serious operation, one that can come with a lengthy rehab timeline. Woods should be considered questionable for the start of training camp. A third-year UDFA in 2018, Woods made the first 15 starts of his NFL career, earning neutral marks from Pro Football Focus.

Spencer Ware (hamstring) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Despite weeks of limited practices, Ware has not played since Week 14. This finally puts him on track to return, but it should be as little more than a changeup to Damien Williams, who has been excellent in lead duties. If Ware finally does suit up, he will be a low upside DFS option for the Conference Championship round.

Seahawks signed QB Paxton Lynch to a reserve/future contract.

The 2016 first-round mega bust did not struggle for workouts in 2018 but spent the year out of the league after being waived by the Broncos. It's a nothing-to-lose flier for a Seahawks squad that has routinely had one of the league's worst backup quarterback situations. Thankfully for them, Russell Wilson has literally never missed a game. Lynch seems unlikely to earn No. 2 duties in training camp. He just isn't polished enough to be an NFL quarterback.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports J.J. Watt underwent cleanup knee surgery following the Texans' Wild Card loss.

Per Rapsheet, it "sounds like he’s fine now" and was "just some maintenance on an injury that bothered him during the season." Any injury/operation is a concern for a player who missed most of 2016-17 — including 13 games in 2017 with a "tibial plateau fracture" — but 29-year-old Watt fully rebounded in 2018, playing all 16 games and notching 16 sacks. He turns 30 in March.

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said Leonard Fournette is "in a really good place" following a meeting with the running back last week.

"We had a good meeting," Marrone said. "I’m not going to speak for Leonard, but when he left that meeting … I think he’s in a really good place. That’s encouraging and I’m excited about that." Fournette was the subject of criticism by EVP Tom Coughlin following Week 17, leading to some speculation he would be moved this offseason. The running back reportedly "cleared the air" with Coughlin, however, and has now done the same with his head coach. Despite the kumbayas, the two sides still could still have some contentious moments in the next couple months after Fournette filed a formal challenge about the team voiding more than $7 million in guaranteed money in his rookie contract, a move reported by Pro Football Talk.

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.
