  • Follow NFL

Ken Whisenhunt is already working on his next head coaching job.

The Richmond Academy and Georgia Tech graduate, who was fired this week by the Arizona Cardinals, interviewed Wednesday with the Buffalo Bills.

Whisenhunt met with Bills officials, including team president and CEO Russ Brandon and general manager Buddy Nix, early Wednesday morning in Arizona.

Buffalo is looking to replace Chan Gailey, who was fired Monday after three consecutive losing seasons.

The Bills also interviewed Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton on Wednesday.

CHIEFS: A person familiar with Andy Reid’s plans says the former Eagles coach interviewed with Kansas City about its open job.

Reid might also meet with the Cardinals today.

The Chiefs are searching for a replacement for Romeo Crennel.

BROWNS: According to several reports, Cleveland’s CEO Joe Banner was in Arizona on Tuesday to interview Oregon coach Chip Kelly, who is preparing the Ducks to play in tonight’s Fiesta Bowl.

VIKINGS: Quarterback Christian Ponder is dealing with a sore right elbow that has been limiting him in practice this week as they prepare for Green Bay.

Coach Leslie Frazier says he isn’t concerned with Ponder’s ability to play in the game on Saturday. Frazier says he expects Ponder to ramp it up at practice today and be ready to go for the third game this season between the division rivals.

REDSKINS: Left guard Kory Lichtensteiger missed practice with a sprained left ankle Wednesday as Washington held its first practice for the playoffs.

CHARGERS: Jimmy Raye, San Diego’s director of player personnel, apparently was the first candidate to interview to replace fired Chargers general manager A.J. Smith.

Ron Wolf, the former Packers GM who’s serving as a consultant for Chargers president Dean Spanos, said in a conference call Wednesday that the first interview was Tuesday in San Diego. Asked if that interview was with an outside candidate, Wolf said: “Not to my knowledge.”

JETS: Violated the NFL’s media policy by not making coach Rex Ryan or other team executives available within a week of the end of the regular season.

Ryan and owner Woody Johnson will meet with the media on Jan. 8.

The season ended Sunday, Dec. 30.

EAGLES: Signed defensive end Everette Brown and cornerback Trevard Lindley to two-year contracts.
