Just like during their days in Philly, Brad Childress will be Andy Reid's offensive coordinator.
Childress, who coached the Vikings from 2006 to '10, will be Kansas City's new offensive coordinator under Reid, NFL.com reported Monday, citing an unidentified source. Childress replaces Doug Pederson, who took over as Philadelphia Eagles head coach.
Childress worked as the Eagles offensive coordinator from 2003 to '05 under Reid. He spent the past three seasons as a spread-game consultant for Reid and the Chiefs.
Allen doubtful for Panthers
An MRI on Jared Allen's injured foot confirmed a break, but the Panthers are listing him as day-to-day as the defensive end tries to work through it.
Carolina coach Ron Rivera said Allen won't practice Wednesday and is doubtful for the NFC Championship Game vs. Arizona, which means there's at least a 75 percent chance that he won't play.
Allen, 33, had three quarterback hits in Sunday's 31-24 victory over Seattle but no sacks. The former Viking injured his foot in the fourth quarter and played the final two series of the game with it.
"His mentality is, he's going to want to do everything he can to play, knowing him," Rivera said. "We've got to be smart about this. This is the opportunity to get to the next step, but we can't risk certain things trying to get there."
The fear Sunday night was Allen's injury was like Star Lotulelei's last year that forced him to miss the final playoff game. Rivera wasn't sure if this injury will require surgery but said the MRI showed Allen's injury isn't as bad as originally thought.
Rivera said the team will wait until Friday before making a roster move if they must.
• Rivera has banned hoverboards from the Panthers facility, fearing players will get injured.
Rivera said he recently caught a couple players "drag racing" in the hallways of the stadium and wasn't thrilled.
Rivera said, "You see those things on YouTube blowing up and stuff? That is what concerns me more than anything else — something crazy happening."
• The Los Angeles Rams and San Diego Chargers held their first meeting to discuss sharing a stadium that is under construction in Inglewood, Calif.
The teams released a joint statement saying they had held the first negotiating session as the Chargers look to possibly become the second team in the Los Angeles area. The Chargers have a one-year option to reach a lease agreement and become a tenant of the stadium whose construction is being headed by Rams owner Stan Kroenke.
• Jason Pierre-Paul underwent what he hopes will be the final surgery on his mangled right hand, a procedure the defensive end also hopes will enable him more use of that hand on the field. Pierre-Paul, who played for the Giants is set to become a free agent.
• The Colts hired Brian Schottenheimer as their quarterbacks coach, replacing Clyde Christensen, who is expected to be hired as offensive coordinator of the Dolphins.
