  • Greg Zuerlein: Tending to left foot injury

    Zuerlein was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report due to a left foot injury, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

    The Rams are in the Super Bowl because of Zuerlein's right foot, but his plant foot is afflicting him ahead of the biggest game of his career. Per Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com, Zuerlein was donning a boot on that foot Monday. While somewhat worrisome, coach Sean McVay doesn't believe Zuerlein or any other Ram will be impacted in two Sundays, saying, "We don't anticipated anybody really missing any time."

    Andre Holmes: Let go by Denver

    Holmes was released by the Broncos on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Holmes was initially acquired by the Broncos on Dec. 5 after having been released by the Bills, and now hits the open market as an unrestricted free agent. The 30-year-old veteran caught his only target for a gain of five yards across three games in Denver, before suffering a high-ankle sprain during a Week 16 loss to the Raiders and being placed on injured reserve. The big-bodied receiver is expected to recover in time for offseason OTAs in the spring, and will work to land a depth role elsewhere in the league.

    Marcus Mariota: Facing smooth transition

    Mariota (neck/foot) will work with the same playbook terminology in 2019 after the Titans promoted Arthur Smith to replace Matt LaFleur as their offensive coordinator, Jim Wyatt of the team's official website reports.

    Coach Mike Vrabel said he didn't want to subject Mariota and his teammates to massive changes for a second straight offseason. Of course, the Titans still have a lot of work to do on the offensive side, coming off a 2018 campaign in which they ranked 27th in points (19.4 per game) and 25th in yards (312.6). The team did seem to find an identity with Derrick Henry's late-season explosion, but the bigger picture shows a campaign defined by Mariota's sacks and injuries. The 25-year-old quarterback is now heading into a contract season, playing under the fifth-year option on his rookie deal. It's unclear if the Titans are interested in discussing an extension, as Mariota didn't inspire much confidence in 2018. There hasn't been any indication his late-season neck injury will impact his offseason preparation.

    LeSean McCoy: Still under NFL investigation

    McCoy said the NFL is still investigating a July incident involving an attack against his ex-girlfriend at a home he owns in the Atlanta area, ESPN.com's Mike Rodak reports.

    McCoy maintains his innocence after being accused of orchestrating the attack. Meanwhile, Bills general manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott have both said they expect the 30-year-old running back to stay with the team for 2019, apparently unfazed by the July accusations or his career-worst season in 2018. The team could quickly change its tune if McCoy ultimately faces legal consequences and/or NFL discipline.

    Corey Clement: Still facing injury uncertainty

    The Eagles still haven't provided any details on the nature of Clement's season-ending knee injury, Andrew Kulp of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Clement suffered the injury Week 14 and was placed on injured reserve two days later, with one report suggesting the issue could be serious enough to impact his offseason routine. We still don't have any update on a diagnosis, but it does seem Clement is facing a significant hurdle in his attempt to bounce back from a sophomore slump. The rest of the Philadelphia backfield is equally unsettled, with Darren Sproles presumably contemplating retirement and Jay Ajayi potentially headed for free agency while rehabbing a torn ACL. The Eagles do have Wendell Smallwood and Josh Adams under contract for 2019, but neither player inspires confidence as anything more than a No. 3 back. The team likely will look for an external upgrade even if Sproles and/or Ajayi sticks around.

    Jay Ajayi: Headed for free agency

    Ajayi, who tore his ACL on Oct. 7, is slated to become a free agent in March, Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    The report notes that prior to suffering his knee injury, it seemed unlikely that Ajayi would re-sign with the Eagles, given the projected cost of making that happen. Now that the running back is bouncing back from a major injury, however, Domowitch suggests that "it's not out of the question that (Ajayi) ends up signing an affordable one-year deal with the Eagles." Meanwhile, fellow ball-carriers Wendell Smallwood (knee), Corey Clement and Josh Adams are all under contract with Philadelphia in 2019.

    Jimmy Garoppolo: Progressing well

    Garoppolo, who is bouncing back from a torn left ACL, was recently seen throwing at the 49ers' facility for the first time since suffering his injury back on Sept. 23, the Sacramento Bee reports.

    GM John Lynch noted that Garoppolo -- who "hasn't had any setbacks" -- is "doing really well," with the team hopeful that the QB will be fully cleared by May or June, in time for OTAs. With that in mind, Garoppolo is on track to be ready for training camp, at which time he'll look to build chemistry with the rest of the team's offense, a unit that was keyed in 2018 by TE George Kittle and figures to be bolstered this offseason via free agency, the draft and the return to health of several players bouncing back from injury.

    Matt Breida: Could lose work to McKinnon

    Breida (ankle) will be joined by Jerick McKinnon (knee) in the San Francisco backfield for 2019, Joe Fann of the team's official website reports.

    Breida was expected to handle the smaller portion of a timeshare before McKinnon suffered a torn ACL eight days before the start of the regular season. The second-year pro responded with a monstrously efficient campaign, averaging 5.3 yards on 153 carries and 9.7 yards on 27 catches (31 targets) despite playing through an ankle sprain for most of the year. Breida finally landed on injured reserve for Week 17, but there hasn't been any report of offseason surgery in the works. He'll likely return to health long before McKinnon, now benefiting from two seasons of experience under coach Kyle Shanahan. The San Francisco backfield will require close monitoring throughout the offseason and into training camp, as the team presumably hopes to carve out major roles for both Breida and McKinnon, assuming the latter makes a full recovery.

    Marlon Mack: Productive when healthy in 2018

    Mack topped the 100-yard rushing mark four times this past season, en route to logging 195 carries for 908 yards and nine TDs to go along with 17 catches for 103 yards and a receiving score in 12 contests during the 2018 campaign.

    The 2017 fourth-rounder saw his yards per carry average improve from 3.8 to 4.7 in his second NFL season, a mark aided by the Colts' much-improved offensive line. Though a hip injury forced Mack out of team's divisional-round loss to the Chiefs late in the fourth quarter, there has been nothing to suggest that the issue will impact his 2019 campaign. With QB Andrew Luck having re-proved his health and the team's run blocking looking up, Mack's fantasy prospects are on the rise, as he'll continue to head a solid young backfield that will also return change-of-pace option Nyheim Hines, as well as Jordan Wilkins.

    Theo Riddick: Future uncertain

    Riddick (groin) isn't guaranteed to remain with the Lions in 2019, Nate Atkins of MLive.com reports.

    Detroit could reportedly save $3.4 million by setting Riddick free this offseason, a decision that to some degree will depend on how comfortable the organization is with Kerryon Johnson taking on an expanded pass-catching role. Given how Johnson (6.7 yards per catch, 5.5 yards per target) was more efficient than Riddick was both last season (6.3 YPC, 5.2 YPT) and as a rookie (6.5 YPC, 3.2 YPT) himself in 2013, Johnson comparatively fared well as a receiver during his first professional go-around and he still has significant room to grow in the volume department. Zach Zenner's emergence down the stretch could also make it less likely that Riddick returns in 2019 considering Zenner (8.0 YPC, 5.6 YPT) actually turned out to be the most efficient of the bunch in 2018, and he's only two years removed from a 2016 campaign in which he averaged a sterling 8.5 YPT over 23 targets.
