      Nelson (ribs) has a small chance to play in Sunday's NFC championship game against the Falcons, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

      Analysis: Nelson has participated in regeneration workouts but hasn't practiced with the team since fracturing his ribs in the Packers' wild-card win over the Giants. Only missing one week would be surprising given the injury Nelson sustained, but the team claims he's made significant progress and, if he can handle the pain, he'll likely give it a go Sunday. Expect updates on his practice status later this week. Any participation would be a positive sign for the star receiver.

      Green is still in the NFL's concussion protocol, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

      Analysis: Green has been out since mid-December with a concussion, making his status for Sunday's AFC championship game in New England very cloudy. If Green is unable to pass the league's concussion protocol before then, Jesse James should yet again see a majority of the Steelers' tight end targets, as he recorded five catches for 83 yards against the Chiefs in the divisional round.

      Harrison suffered a shoulder/triceps injury and may be limited in practice, Dale Lolley of the Washington Observer-Reporter reports.

      Analysis: Harrison didn't appear to be limited at all in Sunday's win over Kansas City. It's unlikely that he'll miss any game action when Pittsburgh faces New England on Sunday, but it's expected that he'll be limited in practice early in the week so he can rest and recover for the game.

      Williams, who's lost much of the last two seasons due to scary next injuries, may be leaning towards continuing his pro career, reports. "He's leaning toward coming back," Williams' father said in a phone interview with the Associated Press. "We'll take it slow and go from there."

      Analysis: Doctors have cleared Williams to play again. The Bills have all kinds of issues with their defense, including a new coaching staff coming in, but a healthy Williams would go a long way toward solidifying the secondary, as the team never found a suitable replacement once Williams went down for the season in Week 7.

      Houston capped off his 2016 season Sunday with six tackles (five solo) in a divisional-round loss to the Steelers.

      Analysis: Houston missed the team's final two regular-season games due to injury, but was deemed healthy enough to give it a go in the team's first playoff game. While he did record six tackles, the 28-year-old pass rusher was unable to get to Ben Roethlisberger in the contest and finishes his injury-shortened 2016 campaign with just four sacks over six games (including the playoffs). He remains under contract with the Chiefs for another four years, but has played just 16 games combined in the last two seasons. The Georgia product may be a somewhat risky proposition in terms of health, but his injury history could make him a high-value IDP option in 2017 if he plays the entire season.
