Since Smith was able to practice fully on Friday, you have to like his chances of playing on Sunday. He will face a Steelers defense in a divisional rivalry match-up which Smith loves. That he said, he is a risky play at the WR position in Week 9.
Eric Berry Headshot

Berry is expected to receive the Chiefs' franchise tag unless he and the team reach agreement on a long-term deal prior to Wednesday's deadline, ESPN's Ed Werder reports.

Added 10:45 am (EST)
Berry and defensive tackle Dontari Poe are both in search of long-term contracts to remain in Kansas City, but unless either one of them unexpectedly secures such a deal, it's anticipated that Berry will be designated as the Chiefs' franchise player for a second straight season. After holding out during training camp last year, Berry has made it clear that he'll refuse to play under the tag in 2017, which, barring an unforeseen development in the next couple days, figures to result in another standoff between the Chiefs and their five-time Pro Bowler this offseason.
Josh Doctson Headshot

Doctson (Achilles) is expected to be 100 percent healthy by the end of March, Brian McNally of 106.7 FM The Fan reports.

Added 9:58 am (EST)
Doctson was limited to just two games as a rookie while recovering from an Achilles injury sustained during the past offseason, and landed back on IR in October upon suffering a setback. The wideout has made strong progress in his recovery since the season ended, as he took part in running and catching drills last week and is expected to increase his activities in the weeks to come. If Doctson proves to be healthy when training camp opens in the summer, he could challenge for a starting role if the Redskins fail to restock their receiving corps when Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson become free agents in March.
Alshon Jeffery Headshot

The Bears won't apply the franchise tag to Jeffery for the 2017 season, allowing him to become a free agent, ESPN.com's Jeff Dickerson reports.

Added 9:36 am (EST)
While playing under the franchise tag in 2016, Jeffery turned in a rather disappointing season, hauling in 52 catches for 821 yards and only two touchdowns while missing four games due to a suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy. Despite his downturn in performance the last two years, the 26-year-old Jeffery figures to generate plenty of interest in free agency, and could see his numbers climb if he lands in a favorable passing offense. The Bears would likely have interest in retaining Jeffery, but they could be priced out of his market.
Matt Elam Headshot

Elam was arrested on three drug-related charges in Miami on Sunday, NFL.com's Jeremy Bergman reports.

Added Yesterday 10:04 am (EST)
Elam was initially pulled over for reckless driving early Sunday morning, but police booked him on charges of marijuana possession, possession with intent to sell or deliver and possession of a controlled substance. The former first-round pick appeared in nine games as a backup for the Ravens last season, collecting four tackles. He's set to become a free agent in March after the Ravens declined his fifth-year option, but the arrest could hurt his chances of landing with a team.
