Vic Fangio: Not vitally important for Drew Lock to play this year

Drew Lock has resumed practicing with the Broncos and the popular school of thought is that the team would like to add him to the active roster at some point so that they could see him in game action before his rookie year is out. That game action would presumably color their feelings about Lock [more]

A.J. Green remains out of practice

Bengals receiver A.J. Green won’t practice Wednesday, coach Zac Taylor said at his press conference, via Ben Baby of ESPN. Instead, Green will work with trainers on the side.

The Cowboys signed cornerback Deante Burton off Indianapolis’ practice squad, Jason Garrett said Wednesday.

Chandler Jones leads NFL in sacks, this year and over four years as a Cardinal

No one sacks the quarterback more than Cardinals defensive end Chandler Jones. That’s true both this year — when Jones is leading the league with 12.5 sacks — and over his four-year career with the Cardinals.

Safety Derwin James told NFL Network he was “real close” to returning from the stress fracture in his foot that landed him on IR. He had surgery [more]

Le’Veon Bell balks at ongoing HGH testing

For random testing to truly be random, every player must be subject to testing at any time, with no clue as to when his number may come up. A truly random process includes the possibility that one player’s number will come up repeatedly. That apparently has happened to Jets running back Le'Veon Bell, whose number [more]

Mason Rudolph: “I have no ill-will toward Myles Garrett”

Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph talked to reporters Wednesday, for the first time since he was clocked in the head with his own helmet by Browns defensive end Myles Garrett.

Jake Bailey takes AFC special teams player of the week

Maxx Crosby named AFC defensive player of the week

No player was more individually dominant than Raiders defensive end Maxx Crosby last week. The rookie had four sacks in last week’s win against the Bengals. That would have been enough, but he also forced a fumble, helping the Raiders stay in the playoff mix at 6-4. They’re relying on young players at a number [more]
