Jags' Garrard could miss four games
October 24, 2007

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Jaguars quarterback David Garrard could be sidelined up to a month with a badly sprained left ankle.

Coach Jack Del Rio said Wednesday that Garrard has a high ankle sprain, meaning he has ligament damage, and will sit out road games against Tampa Bay and New Orleans.

``It's more likely to be three or four (games), somewhere in that window,'' Del Rio said. ``I don't think it's likely to think he'll be back any sooner than that.''

Del Rio said Quinn Gray will make his first career start against the Buccaneers on Sunday. The Jaguars also planned to work out Doug Johnson, Drew Henson and Todd Bouman later Wednesday.

Drew Bledsoe was approached about a tryout but declined to come out of retirement.

Garrard injured his ankle in Monday night's 29-7 loss to Indianapolis. He tried to play through the injury, but his ankle swelled up considerably at halftime.

Gray struggled in his second extensive playing stint in the last two seasons. He finished 9-of-24 for 56 yards, with two interceptions and a fumble.

``We've got to rally around Quinn,'' Del Rio said.

Re: NFL News and Notes Week 8

Thomas is unlikely to play Sunday in London

The Dolphins might not be taking the Wembley Stadium pitch Sunday with Dolphins linebacker Zach Thomas after he spent Wednesday at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center being examined by Dr. Mickey Collins.

Dolphins coach Cam Cameron said Thomas, who missed two games earlier this season because of a concussion, missed practice and was being looked at for concerns about whiplash after an auto accident after last Sunday's game. Cameron said he would have to wait for the test results to know whether Thomas would be going to London with the team.

But on Wednesday night, a source close to Thomas said the whiplash effects from the accident have caused neck problems that will keep Thomas out Sunday, but that Thomas should be back after the Dolphins' bye week. Also, the source said, there were no problems as far as concussions.

So, in total, the Dolphins would face the Giants without their best offensive player this season (running back Ronnie Brown); their No. 1 quarterback (Trent Green); their key run defender (Thomas); and, among the safeties, who make the coverage calls in the secondary, their best safety (Yeremiah Bell); and their acknowledged leader in the secondary (Renaldo Hill); and, without a victory in seven games.

Meanwhile, the Giants are on a five-game winning streak.

Thomas was in an automobile accident after the Dolphins' loss to New England. According to police reports and the Dolphins, there was minor damage to Thomas' car, but none to either he or his wife, Maritza.

But whiplash sometimes doesn't reveal itself until the following day.

''I don't know when [whiplash symptoms] first started,'' Cameron said, ``but [head athletic trainer] Kevin [O'Neill] made me aware yesterday that Zach and he had talked, and they came to the conclusion we need to go get this thing checked out.''

Some of the most extensive research on concussions and other sports injuries involving the neck and head have been done by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

It's also the home base of Dr. Joseph Maroon, a professor who has been the Pittsburgh Steelers' neurosurgeon for 26 years and has become a leading specialist in brain and spinal problems.

Thomas, a starter from his first NFL game in 1996, practically has to be ordered to not play or practice. But he has played in all 16 games just five times in 12 seasons. A neck and shoulder strain caused Thomas' only missed game in 2001.

It wasn't Thomas' powerful neck, but his head that took him out of two games this season.

He sustained a concussion early in the season's second game, a loss to Dallas, yet still played the entire game.

Without Thomas in the lineup, the Jets tromped through the Dolphins for 141 yards and held the ball for 21:16 of the second half.

The following week, the Raiders totaled 299 rushing yards and their running backs averaged 6.5 yards per carry against the Dolphins.

Re: NFL News and Notes Week 8

Jackson guarded about his return

For the first time in a month, running back Steven Jackson's teammates got a look Wednesday at his blue No. 39 jersey — without a red "no contact" singlet covering it. It was a welcome sight to the Rams.

"Without him, it's been a difference," tight end Randy McMichael said. "Brian (Leonard) did a great job filling in for him, but there's nothing like having No. 39 back with you."

Barring a setback, Jackson will return to the lineup Sunday against the visiting Cleveland Browns. He missed four games with a torn groin muscle.

"We'll be guarded somewhat as we go," coach Scott Linehan said, "but if we get through this week of practice, there's no reason he shouldn't be starting this week."

Leonard, a second-round draft pick in April, ran for 222 yards on 58 carries, a respectable 3.8-yard average, and caught nine passes for 57 yards. But replacing last year's NFL leader in yards from scrimmage would be a tall task for anybody, let alone a rookie.

"It's fun to go out there and practice full-go and not be limited like the last couple of weeks," Jackson said. "Everything's going well."

He added a word of caution, though. "A groin is something that, it feels good and the next day it may have a little tweak here or there," he explained. "We're waiting on Thursday and see how it reacts."

Jackson also stressed that he wouldn't know whether he's completely healed until he's in a game.

"You can't simulate game speed," he said. "I have to get to the point where I'm getting tackled and I'm comfortable breaking arm tackles, things like that."

With center Brett Romberg (ankle) out and guard Claude Terrell released, the Rams will start their sixth different combination on the offensive line.

"I can't dwell on that," Jackson said. "Once the ball is in my hands, I can't tell the defense to slow down, these guys don't know what they're doing. I'm just going to go out there with confidence. I'm going to ... let them know that I'm expecting them to get the job done."

The goals, Jackson said, are to "try to change the momentum of what's going on" with the Rams' punchless offense and, most important, to get a win before the bye week.

"We're 0-7, and we realize that," he said. "But it's life, and life comes with problems. You have to find the solution. That's what I'm here for. ... Hopefully, now we can get this thing turned around."

Re: NFL News and Notes Week 8

Dolphins sign Schulters, place Brown on IR
October 24, 2007

Associated Press

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- The Miami Dolphins signed safety Lance Schulters on Wednesday to help their depleted secondary, and officially placed running back Ronnie Brown on injured reserve with a torn knee ligament.

The Dolphins also signed defensive end Quentin Moses and activated tight end Aaron Halterman off the practice squad. Safety Renaldo Hill (torn knee ligament) was put on injured reserve, and newly signed defensive tackle Jesse Mahelona was waived to make roster room.

Brown and Hill were hurt in Miami's 49-28 loss to New England last weekend. The Dolphins play the New York Giants in London on Sunday.

Schulters started every game for Miami in 2005, finishing with two sacks and four interceptions.

"I didn't care how I got back," Schulters said. "I just wanted a chance to play."

He could become the sixth starting safety for the Dolphins, who had Yeremiah Bell tear his Achilles' tendon in Week 1 and had a litany of other injuries at the position since.

"We're looking at every player in the league that's on a practice squad," Dolphins coach Cam Cameron said. "You can imagine what we've been doing. When has anyone been around a team recently that has lost four safeties? But the bottom line is someone is going to line up there, and we know we've got a couple to start with."

Moses is on his third team this season. He was Oakland's third-round draft pick, then was released by the Raiders, and signed and released again by the Arizona Cardinals.

Re: NFL News and Notes Week 8

Panthers place Goings on IR, sign Curry
October 24, 2007

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Carolina Panthers placed reserve running back and kick returner Nick Goings on injured reserve Wednesday, nearly a month after he sustained at least the third concussion of his career.

The Panthers signed linebacker Donte Curry to replace him on the 53-man roster.

Goings was injured on a kickoff return against Tampa Bay on Sept. 30. He did not play in Carolina's past two games, and coach John Fox said Goings had not been cleared by doctors to return to practice.

Curry, a seven-year veteran, was released by Detroit last week. He'll provide depth at linebacker with Dan Morgan out indefinitely with a partially torn Achilles tendon.

Bucs release Crockett, put Jones on IR
October 24, 2007

Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released running back Zack Crockett and placed punt and kick returner Mark Jones on injured reserve Wednesday, clearing room on the roster for help at receiver.

Crockett was signed on Oct. 10 to bolster the tailback position following injuries to Carnell "Cadillac" Williams and Michael Pittman. He appeared in two games and carried once for no gain during last Sunday's 23-16 loss at Detroit.

Jones, a reserve receiver, tore the patellar tendon in his left knee returning a kickoff against the Lions.

The loss of Jones, as well as a right ankle sprain that could sideline Michael Clayton beyond this week, created a need for a receiver, which the Bucs filled by promoting Chad Lucas from the practice squad.

The team also signed fullback Byron Storer to replace Crockett. Receiver Derrick Hamilton and tackle Dennis Roland were signed to the practice squad.

Re: NFL News and Notes Week 8

Smith returns to Niners' starting lineup
Associated Press

Quarterback Alex Smith will start for the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday against New Orleans, coach Mike Nolan said.

Smith, out since Sept. 30 with a separated shoulder, went through his second full day of practice Thursday, leading the 49ers' first-team offense with no apparent discomfort.

He hasn't played since injuring his right shoulder on the third play of San Francisco's 23-3 loss to Seattle. Nolan nearly used Smith last week against the New York Giants, but elected to hold out the former No. 1 overall draft pick.

"It's not so much my confidence in him, it's his confidence in taking reps (in practice)," Nolan said. "I expect him to play well, and he looked good. He looked healthy today."

San Francisco is 0-3 since Smith's injury, with Sunday's visit from the Saints looming as a key moment in the season.


Smith was 43-of-84 for 461 yards and just one touchdown this season, but the 49ers won twice in their first three games while he was healthy. Trent Dilfer had similar statistics after replacing Smith, but the 14-year veteran had a hand in four turnovers in last week's loss to the Giants.

Running back Frank Gore also expects to play Sunday despite a sprained ankle. Gore was limited in practice for the second straight day, mostly confining his workouts to individual drills.

"It was all right, and it'll get better day by day," said Gore, who has just 394 yards rushing after leading the NFC last year. "We'll just wrap it up, and I'll try to go out there and play on it."

Left tackle Jonas Jennings is unlikely to play after injuring his ankle last week, with Adam Snyder expected to replace him. Receiver Darrell Jackson also missed his second day of practice Thursday with a quadriceps injury.

Re: NFL News and Notes Week 8

Toe injury could require surgery, sideline Little for season
ESPN.com

St. Louis Rams left defensive end Leonard Little will miss Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, and the effectiveness of the Rams' top pass rusher could be affected for the rest of the season by a toe problem that has plagued him for weeks.

Little, 33, has not missed a regular-season game because of injury since 2003. He will be replaced in the lineup by second-year veteran Victor Adeyanju, who had five tackles while playing in relief of Little last week.

Doctors originally diagnosed Little's injury, to the big toe on his left foot, as a sprain. But a later examination revealed a torn ligament, and Little will consult with a foot specialist next week, when the Rams have their bye.

It is possible that the injury could require surgery, and it that is the case, Little would likely miss the rest of the season.

Coach Scott Linehan termed the injury "rare," but such toe problems often are serious and, if surgery is mandated, require months of rehabilitation.

One of the NFL's top pass-rushers, Little has only 19 tackles and one sack in seven games this season, and the toe injury clearly has affected his ability to push off and gain the kind of leverage needed to burst to the quarterback. Little has had several pressures on which he got close to sacks but did not have the closing speed to finish off the play.

He acknowledged last week that the toe injury has been frustrating for him.

A 10th-year veteran, Little has four seasons of double-digit sacks in his career, including 13 in 2006. In 120 games, the former University of Tennessee star, a third-round pick in 1998 who has spent his entire career with the Rams, has 317 tackles and 74 sacks, and has forced 30 fumbles.

Re: NFL News and Notes Week 8

Jets LB Vilma sidelined with knee injury; rookie Harris indicates he'll start
ASSOCIATED PRESS

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. -- Jets linebacker Jonathan Vilma missed practice for the second straight day Thursday with a knee injury that could sideline him for New York's game against Buffalo - or longer.

Coach Eric Mangini remained typically tightlipped when discussing the injury, which caused the one-time Pro Bowl linebacker to be removed from the game for a stretch last Sunday at Cincinnati.

''We're still looking at that,'' Mangini said. ''With any injury, we go through the process and evaluate throughout the week.''

Rookie David Harris, the Jets' second-round draft pick in April, indicated he will take Vilma's spot in the starting lineup Sunday against the Bills.

''It's a big task for me to fill his shoes,'' Harris said. ''It's been a dream of mine to start an NFL game and the opportunity has arised so I've got to step up to the plate.''

Published reports have speculated the injury could be serious and potentially require season-ending surgery. Mangini wouldn't budge when asked if that was a possible scenario.

''It's really just going to matter what the results are and talk to the doctors and put together the best plan,'' Mangini said.

When pressed on whether that means Vilma could miss the rest of the season, Mangini said simply: ''No, it just means that we're looking at the tests and talking to doctors and following the normal procedure that we do with everybody.''

Vilma has not been available to the media since Sunday. Messages and e-mails left for Tony Fleming, one of Vilma's representatives, were not immediately answered.

Mangini said he wasn't sure when the injury occurred, but shot down the theory that it might have been a preexisting condition.

''The injury was really based on the game,'' he said.

Mangini also wouldn't specify whether the injury was to Vilma's right or left knee.

''It's one of those two,'' he said.

The Jets coach then explained why he doesn't want to say which knee it is.

''Just historically, whenever you have an awareness of an injury and opponents have an awareness of an injury that's something that you can take into account when you're running routes, when you're running plays, the directions that you run plays, how a guy can cut or not cut, where they're going to be quicker,'' he said. ''What may be affected, that does come into the decision-making. What kind of routes you're going to run against them. What the likelihood of being able to take advantage of a slowed-down player might be.''

The hard-hitting Harris, who has 24 tackles in limited time this season, could get the chance to call signals at middle linebacker Sunday.

''Playing linebacker at Michigan for four or five years, you get used to calling the defensive huddle and I get here and Vilma and (Eric) Barton were calling the huddles,'' Harris said. ''Now that Vilma's down, I can pick up more responsibility.''

Re: NFL News and Notes Week 8

Testaverde will start for Panthers vs. Colts
October 26th, 2007

Charlotte, NC (Sports Network) - Quarterback Vinny Testaverde will start for the Carolina Panthers in Sunday's game against Indianapolis.

Head coach John Fox announced the news at Friday's practice, clearing up whether the team's starter would be Testaverde or David Carr, who is recovering from a back injury.

"It is not an indictment on David Carr by any stretch," Fox said. "He's healthy enough to play, but I don't think he's 100 percent."

Carr did go through the team's full practice Friday. But Testaverde, 43, will get his second consecutive start, after leading the Panthers to a 25-10 win over Arizona on October 14. He completed 20-for-33 passes for 206 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions.

He became the oldest starting quarterback to win a start in NFL history, and the Panthers' acquisition of Testaverde proved to be a smart, if necessary, move.

Carr - who replaced Carolina's original starting quarterback, Jake Delhomme, in Week 3 - left in the first half of the Panthers' 16-13 win over New Orleans on October 7.

The team signed Testaverde three days later, and will go with him at quarterback for another week, attempting to go for its third win in a row. Fox said the Panthers' offense won't change with Testaverde in.

Chargers/Texans will play in San Diego on Sunday
October 26th, 2007

San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - The San Diego Chargers and the Houston Texans will play as scheduled Sunday at Qualcomm Stadium, the NFL announced Friday, despite the recent wildfires in Southern California.

The game will kick off, as scheduled, at 4:05 (et), even though the stadium has been used this week as a temporary housing facility for the thousands of people that are without homes due to the still-burning wildfires. The Chargers moved their practices to Arizona, and the league considered playing the game in Houston, or pushing the game back to Monday night.

Recent subsiding of the fires prompted the city of San Diego to okay the game as scheduled. Mayor Jerry Sanders released the following statement regarding the game.

"Qualcomm Stadium will be ready for NFL football by this weekend. The city will be able to provide sufficient public safety personnel to manage a professional football game without impeding ongoing wildfire recovery efforts. I informed the Chargers late Thursday that should they decide to play their game at Qualcomm this weekend, the stadium will be ready."

Packers TE Frank out for Monday vs. Broncos
October 26th, 2007

Green Bay, WI (Sports Network) - Green Bay tight end Bubba Franks is out for Monday's matchup with the Denver Broncos. Franks aggravated a right knee injury early in Green Bay's 17-14 win over Washington on October 14.

The 29-year-old tight end did not participate in practice this week, despite having the bye week to recuperate. Franks has 14 catches for 90 yards on the season.

He will likely be replaced in the starting lineup by rookie Ryan Krause, who has five career receptions in one game, back in 2004 with the San Diego Chargers.

Also out for Monday is rookie defensive tackle Justin Harrell, with an ankle injury, and cornerback Will Blackmon, with an injured foot. Wideout Ruvell Martin (back), offensive lineman Junius Coston (ankle), and defensive end Cullen Jenkins (ankle) are all listed as questionable.

Believe it or not, Steelers' Smith is out
October 26th, 2007

Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Pittsburgh Steelers starting defensive end Aaron Smith is listed as out for this week's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Smith, suffering from a sprained ligament in his left knee, hasn't missed a game since his rookie season in 1999 when he played in just six games. Since 2000, he has played in all 118 regular season games for Pittsburgh, starting all but two.

This season, Smith has 16 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks in six games.

Bengals' Rudi Johnson doubtful for Sunday
October 26th, 2007

Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - Cincinnati Bengals running back Rudi Johnson did not participate in practice on Friday, and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Steelers with a nagging hamstring injury.

Johnson has sat out two of the last three games with the injury. The 27-year- old has gained 185 yards on 62 carries in four games this season. Fourth-year veteran Kenny Watson filled in nicely for Johnson last Sunday, gaining 130 yards on 31 carries in the Bengals' 38-31 win over the Jets.

Vikings' Jackson questionable
October 26th, 2007

Eden Prairie, MN (Sports Network) - Minnesota Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Philadelphia with a broken index finger on his throwing hand.

The team won't announce who will start under center until Sunday, but if Jackson is unable to play, Kelly Holcomb will probably make his third start of the season.

In four starts this season, Jackson has completed just 45-of-98 passes for 537 yards with two touchdowns and five interceptions.

In Holcomb's two games, he went 35-for-67 for 427 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Starting safety Dwight Smith (strained hamstring) was ruled out for the second straight game. Running back Chester Taylor (strained groin) participated in Friday's practice and was listed as probable.

Jones-Drew questionable with kee sprain
October 26, 2007

Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew was limited in practice Friday -- the third consecutive day he's missed part of team drills -- and was listed as questionable against Tampa Bay.

Jones-Drew hasn't missed a game in his short career and vowed earlier in the week to play Sunday against the Buccaneers. He sprained his left knee with about a minute to play Monday night against Indianapolis.

If he doesn't play, the Jaguars will turn to starter Fred Taylor to carry the load. Taylor needs 135 yards rushing to become the 21st player in NFL history with 10,000.

Also questionable for the Jaguars: cornerback Brian Williams (hamstring) and defensive linemen Reggie Hayward (hamstring), Tony McDaniel (wrist) and Marcus Stroud (ankle). Linebacker Daryl Smith (hip) and tight end George Wrighster (head) are probable.

Re: NFL News and Notes Week 8

Eagles could be without Runyan, Dawkins, Considine
October 26, 2007

Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Eagles starting right tackle Jon Runyan missed his third straight practice Friday and is questionable to make his 185th consecutive start Sunday against the Vikings.

Runyan bruised his tailbone in a training room fall last week, but played in Philadelphia's 19-16 loss to Chicago. He sat out practice this week and will be re-evaluated once the team arrives in Minnesota.

"We have a long flight up there. We'll keep giving him treatment, and so on, to see how he does," coach Andy Reid said.

The Eagles (2-4) also could be without both of their starting safeties. All-Pro Brian Dawkins, who hasn't played since sustaining a neck stinger in Week 2, is doubtful, though he practiced the last two days.

"He's feeling better all the way around," Reid said. "The stinger part of it, which is the main concern, has gone away. He's getting better."

Safety Sean Considine hurt his ankle in practice Thursday but returned to the field Friday and is also questionable.
