Beasley caught six passes on eight targets for 60 yards during Sunday's divisional-round loss to the Chiefs.
Analysis: This was Beasley's best game since Week 14 against the Buccaneers, as he missed a game due to COVID protocols down the stretch and seemed to have a difficult time getting worked back into a major role in the offense following his return, not to mention he got booed every time he touched the ball in home games the rest of the way from fans not agreeing with his season-long strong stance against vaccinations. Beasley's 82-693-1 line is nothing to sniff at considering there are so many mouths to feed in this high-powered offense, but the emergence of Gabriel Davis, tight end Dawson Knox and even running back Devin Singletary cut into some of Beasley's production in 2021, namely in the red zone. He has one more year left on his contract, and we imagine that even though the front office may have grown frustrated with some of the attention he brought to the locker room this season, he's too valuable to the team and too good at his middle-of-the-field role to not to be given anything less than strong consideration for the Bills' 2022 plan.

The Packers activated Cobb (groin) from injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: Cobb underwent core muscle surgery during the Packers' Week 13 bye and missed the rest of the regular season. With the benefit of a first-round bye in the playoffs, his time away from the field will end at five games as he prepares for a return for Saturday's divisional-round matchup with the 49ers. Green Bay has listed Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) as doubtful to play this weekend, so Cobb should jump back into three-wide sets with Davante Adams and Allen Lazard.

The Cardinals signed Wells to a reserve/future contract Wednesday.
Analysis: The tight end appeared in three games with the Cardinals during the 2021 season and will return to the team for the 2022 campaign. Wells played 12 offensive snaps but failed to draw a target while operating a depth option behind starter Zach Ertz.

McKeon caught four of six targets for 27 yards and a touchdown across nine games this season.
Analysis: He missed the first eight weeks of the season due to an ankle injury, but McKeon found a role as a blocker and depth tight end upon his return, and he scored his first career TD on Thanksgiving against the Raiders. The undrafted player has one more year remaining on his current contract, and he could see a larger role in 2022 if Dalton Schultz leaves in free agency.

Coach Mike McCarthy revealed Wednesday that Gallup (knee) hasn't yet had surgery to repair his torn ACL, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: This isn't out of the ordinary, as it often takes a few weeks for swelling to subside after an ACL injury, even when it's a "clean tear" like Gallup's without significant damage to surrounding ligaments. As of Wednesday, it'd been two and a half weeks since Gallup suffered the injury in a Week 17 loss to Arizona. Still, the timing at the end of the season does put him in serious danger of missing the start of the 2022 campaign, a major complication as he's scheduled for unrestricted free agency this spring.
