Jordy Nelson Headshot

Jordy Nelson (ribs) will be active for Sunday's game.

With Super Bowl trip on the line, this is no surprise. Nelson is Aaron Rodgers favorite target, and will be targeted if he is able to play a decent amount of snaps. There is no word of a snap count for him, so he should be seeing his usual workload.

Martellus Bennett Headshot

Martellus Bennett will likely need ankle surgery after the season.

Bennett has been playing at less than 100 percent basically all season but finding out that Bennett has a cracked bone in his ankle and also bone chips is surprising. He is a tough guy who hasn't missed a game all season and is expected to play Sunday against the Steelers.

Matt Ryan Headshot

Falcons are expected to "explore" a contract extension with Matt Ryan this offseason.

When this season ends, Ryan will have two years left on his contract. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Ryan's agent Tom Condon will look to capitalize on Ryan's likely MVP season. Condon will be looking to make Ryan the highest paid quarterback in the NFL. Currently, Ryan carries $23.75 million cap hit for next year which is 11th highest in the league.

Kirk Cousins Headshot

49ers are expected to try and sign Kirk Cousins if he is available.

Even if the Redskins hit Cousins with another franchise tag, the 49ers may be willing to part with a trade which would include the No. 2 overall pick to land Cousins. With former coach Kyle Shanahan likely the new head coach of the 49ers, Cousins may be more inclined to play for the 49ers. More than likely Washington will try and hit Cousins with the franchise tag and if the two cannot work out a long-term deal it may only be the beginning of the saga.

Ryan Kerrigan Headshot

Redskins will promote Greg Manusky to defensive coordinator.

Kerrigan finished the season with 11 sacks and has had at least 7.5 sacks in all six of his NFL seasons. With new defensive coordinator Greg Manusky it will be interesting to see how the Redskins defense looks in 2017.

Martellus Bennett Headshot

Martellus Bennett (knee) is expected to play Sunday.

It seems that Bennett has been listed as questionable more times than not this season, but he has yet to miss a single game for the Patriots. The veteran tight end caught just 1-of-4 targets for a mere four yards in the Divisional Round win over the Texans. However, he gained over 700 receiving yards during the regular season and has found the endzone in three of the last five games.

Ladarius Green Headshot

Ladarius Green (concussion) is not expected to play Sunday.

Green has not been able to get on the field for better than a month due to a concussion, and that is not expected to change for Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Patriots. Jesse James, who hauled in 5-of-6 targets for 83 yards in the Divisional Round win over the Chiefs, will be the top tight end for the Steelers once again.

James Harrison Headshot

James Harrison (shoulder) is expected to play Sunday.

This is definitely a positive development for the Steelers, as Harrison has made a major impact over the first two rounds of the playoffs. In wins versus the Dolphins and Chiefs the past two weekends, the 38-year-old linebacker has combined for 16 total tackles and 2.5 sacks.

Morgan Burnett Headshot

Morgan Burnett (thigh) is expected to play on Sunday barring a setback.

Burnett's been battling a thigh injury all week and was Questionable, along with some of Green Bay's WR's heading in to Sunday's NFC Championship game. Burnett will look to play his part in shutting down Atlanta's high octane offense.

Nick Martin Headshot

Nick Martin (ankle) is expected to be ready for OTAs.

Martin, a 2nd round pick in 2016, spent his entire rookie season on IR with an ankle injury. Fortunately for him he should be ready for OTA's and possibly put in a full season of work in 2017. Martin will look to bolster an already solid offensive line for the Houston Texans.
