The Pittsburgh Steelers ruled out veteran running back DeAngelo Williams for Saturday's wild-card playoff game at Cincinnati after he missed his third straight practice because of an injured right foot.
Fitzgerald Toussaint and Jordan Todman will fill in for Williams, who may be available later in the playoffs if Pittsburgh advances. The 32-year-old tied for the NFL lead with 11 rushing touchdowns this season after taking over for All-Pro Le'Veon Bell, who is out for the season because of a right knee injury.
McCoy gets extension
The San Diego Chargers gave beleaguered Coach Mike McCoy a one-year contract extension through 2017 earlier this week, general manager Tom Telesco said.
Telesco said the Chargers told McCoy on Monday that he would return in 2016 for the final year on his contract despite going 4-12 this season, including 0-6 against AFC West rivals. Later Monday, McCoy fired six assistants, including offensive coordinator Frank Reich.
Still undetermined is whether McCoy will be coaching the Chargers in San Diego or Los Angeles, where team chairman Dean Spanos wants to move the franchise.
Marshawn Lynch was listed as questionable for the Seattle's wild-card game at Minnesota, although indications were that the running back will play. Coach Pete Carroll said after practice that the team still needed to see how Lynch responded on Saturday before making a final decision on his status for the playoff game. Lynch was a full participant in practice all three days this week after not playing since Week 10 against Arizona because of abdominal surgery.
Vikings nose tackle Linval Joseph, who has missed four of the last five games because of a toe injury, was a full participant in practice and was listed as probable, as was running back Adrian Peterson (lower back).
Mack makes history
Oakland defensive end and outside linebacker Khalil Mack was selected at both positions on the 2015 Associated Press All-Pro Team, making the second-year player the first man in NFL history to be named first-team All-Pro at two positions in a single season. Others, including Houston's J.J. Watt last year, have been chosen first team at one position and second at another. Watt was a unanimous pick at defensive end for this season's team, as was Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson.
Carolina, with an NFL-best 15-1 record, had the most All-Pros with six: quarterback Cam Newton, fullback Mike Tolbert, center Ryan Kalil, linebackers Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis, and cornerback Josh Norman.
