 Los Angeles Chargers (NFL): Chargers tight end Hunter Henry expected to play Sunday vs. Baltimore

WOW!….. Just… Just… Phenomenal. During training camp, Hunter Henry tore his ACL, underwent surgery and had aggressive rehab in order to make it to the playoffs. The Chargers are set for a rough playoff schedule which begins in Baltimore on Sunday. We are not expecting Hunter Henry to be in on every play but he is a valuable piece in red zone situations. Virgil Green will all then likely draw the start in Baltimore.

 Los Angeles Chargers (NFL): Chargers linebacker Jatavis Brown out for the playoffs with an ankle injury

The same injury that has been lingering for some time has officially sidelined the hybrid linebacker for the entire playoff’s. The Los Angeles Chargers have been hit with the injury bug all season long but that has not stopped them from success this year. The Chargers will be down two starting linebackers in Denzel Perryman and Jatavis Brown and possibly add Kyzir White to the list. The Chargers are expected to start Hayes Pullard which allows playing time to backup linebacker Kyle Emanuel as well. Chargers hit the road against Baltimore on Sunday.

 Jacksonville Jaguars (NFL): Jaguars bringing back Doug Marrone & Dave Caldwell In 2019

Following the Jacksonville Jaguars loss in the season finale to Houston, the team tweeted that team owner Shad Khan has confirmed that head coach Doug Marrone and general manager Dave Caldwell will return in 2019.

2018 was a huge step back for the Jacksonville Jaguars who were a year out from being a win away from the Super Bowl in 2017. In a post-game statement, Shad Khan stated that “We will return to work this week fully confident and optimistic with Dave Caldwell as our general manager and Doug Marrone as our head coach.” and “I have the same trust in Tom Coughlin, Dave, and Doug as I did upon their introduction two years ago, and I do believe our best path forward for the moment is the one less disruptive and dramatic.”

Jacksonville will have a lot to address heading into the offseason with the most notable being replacing Blake Bortles who is likely on his way out following another ineffective season. Back to the drawing board Jacksonville.

 New England Patriots (NFL): Josh Gordon facing another suspension, will step away from football

The saga continues. This morning, Patriots fans woke to the news that Josh Gordon is in violation of his NFL reinstatement and is currently facing a lifetime ban from the National Football League. Josh Gordon, 27, has had a long history of substance abuse violation and alcohol use since jumping to the NFL in 2012. This year, Josh Gordon was shipped off to New England in exchange for a 5th round pick to Cleveland and many fans saw this as an opportunity to turn things around for what is such a promising career but, that turned otherwise. Since the news of his potential suspension made headlines, Josh Gordon spoke out saying “I take my mental health very seriously at this point to ensure I remain able to perform at the highest level.” and I have recently felt like I could have a better grasp on things mentally.” This suspension could very well spark what could be the end of a once-promising as Gordon’s last suspension took three seasons out of his career and this one could push team’s away for good.

 Miami Dolphins (NFL): Dolphins place RB Frank Gore (foot) on season-ending injured reserve

Frank Gore sustained a foot injury during last week’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Gore, 35, was playing in his 14th season in the NFL and his first with the Miami Dolphins this season. This year, Gore rushed 722 yards and 124 receiving before going down with the injury. The Dolphins will now turn to Kenyan Drake and rookie running back Kalen Ballage as they continue to push for a playoff spot. As for Gore, his future remains uncertain but a return for a 15th NFL season is not out of the question.

 Oakland Raiders (NFL): Raiders sign free agent quarterback Nathan Peterman

The Jon Gruden praised quarterback has officially got a second chance in the NFL. Nathan Peterman was cut by the Buffalo Bills back in September after another disastrous season in what has been a disastrous start to a career in the NFL. During his tenure in free agency, Peterman had notable workouts with Detroit and Denver but left without a contract. The “more pro-ready quarterback” in the 2017 NFL Draft will serve as Derek Carr’s backup. (Update: According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Peterman will be signed to the Raiders practice squad, not the 53-man roster.)

 Seattle Seahawks (NFL): Seahawks sign RB Bo Scarbrough off Jaguars practice squad

The addition of Bo Scarbrough could be a legitimate sign that the Seahawks will be without rookie running back Rashaad Penny who has been dealing with knee injury. Bo Scarbrough is a former 7th round draft pick by the Dallas Cowboys this past year. Scarbrough was at training camp with the Cowboys who eventually cut him, signed to the practice squad just to be released in early October. After getting cut by Dallas, Scarbrough was signed by the Jaguars on their practice squad. He is just a depth add this week vs. Kansas City.

 New York Jets: Jets place RB Isaiah Crowell on injured reserve, ending his season

Dealing with a foot injury for some time, the New York Jets have decided to pull the plug and put Isaiah Crowell on injured reserve. This season, Crowell has shown small spurts of success mainly in the game vs. Indianapolis where he rushed for 219 yards. Since the return of Elijah McGuire from I.R., he has shown to be more of a reliable option going forward for the Jets. The Jets will continue to function with Elijah McGuire, Trenton Cannon and D’Angelo Henderson in their backfield. The Jets could very likely move on from Crowell as he is due an outrageous $12 million dollar salary in 2019.

 Jacksonville Jaguars: Jaguars waive defensive back Barry Church

In the second year of his lucrative contract of four-year, $26 million signed last season, Jacksonville waived Barry Church. This season, Church has been noted to have done two things, first thing, he was one of the players tied to a 200,000 skipped bar tab in London and the second thing is being dominated by Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. Barry Church also lost his starting role in week 12 to Ronnie Harrison. Barry Chruch could a veteran add in the remaining couple weeks of the season.

 Los Angeles Chargers: Chargers WR Keenan Allen dealing with a hip pointer

Keenan Allen left the Chargers/Chiefs game Thursday night in the 1st quarter after taking a small hit on his hip by a Chiefs defensive back. The injury is being reported as if he could miss time but they don’t expect him to due to the fact the Chargers will have 10-day’s to prepare for the Baltimore Ravens in a must win for the team. Should Allen miss time, The Mike Williams Show will continue to be a showcase after a three-touchdown performance against Kansas City.
