Lots of news from the NFL as we head into Week 14 of the season.

Packers Fire Assistant Coach
The Green Bay Packers have dismissed another coach.

The Packers announced the firing of associate head coach and linebackers coach Winston Moss just hours after he sent out a tweet about the Packers’ leadership situation.

Moss joined the Packers in 2006 along with Mike McCarthy, who was fired on Sunday, and served on the coaching staff for the last 13 seasons. He was the associate head coach for the past four campaigns.

Ref Put On Administrative Leave
The official that was involved in a postgame argument with Buffalo Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes has been place on administrative leave. According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the league is still reviewing what happened.

Roy Ellison, the official in question, and Hughes got into a heated verbal exchange following the Bills’ loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday afternoon.

In the video below, you can hear Hughes shouting, “you called me a bit**. I’ll catch you. Trust me, I’ll catch you. I’ll catch you, guarantee it!”

The NFL will hand out fines for coaches and players that call out the officiating during postgame scrums and press conferences. So, since this was caught on tape Hughes could be a little lighter in the wallet in the coming days. However, the official is not out of the hot water yet as this is not the first time he has told players off.

Ellison was suspended in 2013 for an incident that went down with the Washington Redskins’ Trent Williams.

Kaepernick Was Discussed
The Washington Redskins are down two players who are out with season ending injuries. Unfortunately, both players are Alex Smith and Colt McCoy, quarterbacks for the Redskins. While Mark Sanchez takes over the starter’s role, the team will not go after the obvious replacement candidate that could have even been ahead of Sanchez in the depth chart.

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden told media on Tuesday that there had been internal discussions about signing Colin Kaepernick, but the former 49ers QB doesn’t seem to be heading to the national capital anytime soon.

"He's been talked about and discussed, but we'll probably go a different direction," Gruden said during his media availability, noting that the team worked out quarterbacks last week and Tuesday.

The team seems to want to go with somebody that has already worked out with them because they will know some of the terminology that they use instead of bringing in somebody that has a similar skill set, but probably more talented than Sanchez.

While the season is starting to come to an end you don’t really want to have a guy trying to learn the system and terms at this point. However, you want the best player available that can help you make a run to the postseason, which Washington still has a chance for.

McCoy broke his fibula during Monday night’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles while Smith broke his fibula and tibia back in November 18 in a loss to the Houston Texans.

It was noted that McCoy underwent surgery on his fibula but will more than likely not land on the IR so that he potentially can return to the team by the end of the season if he is healthy.

The scary part of all this at this point is that Sanchez is the only quarterback on the Redskins’ roster.

Bills Release Benjamin, Holmes
The Buffalo Bills released wide receivers Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes on Tuesday.

Benjamin was acquired by the Bills in October 2017 when Buffalo sent a 2018 third round draft pick to the Carolina Panthers for the receiver. He has failed to produce for the Bills, recording 23 catches for 354 yards and a touchdown in 12 games this year.

If a team claims Benjamin off waivers, they will be responsible for the remaining prorated portion of his base salary which is just under $2 million. He was playing on a fifth-year option and will be a free agent in March.
