Quarterback Jay Cutler was on the move. He twisted and jogged during team stretches. He dropped back and was whacked over his hands with a foam bat during the first individual drill. Then he threw passes and went over his footwork in the next drill. Cutler’s left leg — the one with the high-ankle sprain — didn’t look restricted. It actually looked good. He looked good. But he’s out. Josh McCown will make his fifth start Monday against the Dallas Cowboys....

The Bulls quickly gained the lead in the first quarter and never relinquished it as they dominated the defending champs throughout the game and easily beat them by 20 points. Dwyane Wade was out because of the flu and Birdman did not travel with the team for personal reasons. The Chicago Bulls put a beat down on the Miami Heat. It was embarrassing.

Five Green Bay Packers questions with Acme Packing Company. Five questions with Acme Packing Company. Dave Choate: With the loss of Aaron Rodgers, things have gone south in Green Bay. We know that Rodgers is perhaps the best quarterback in the NFL, but is he this integral to the team, or are there deeper issues at work? Jason Hirschorn: Only in rare situations does a loss of a starting quarterback not cripple a team. The Packers clearly are not one of those lucky few. When Aaron Rodgers went down with a fractured collarbone November 4, it signaled the end of a long streak of stability at...

It appears as if the Steelers will have both LaMarr Woodley and Le'Veon Bell at their disposal when they host the Miami Dolphins Sunday. LaMarr Woodley may have been somewhat disoriented recently. Barraged with questions regarding where he would be playing in the event he was able to suit up for the first time in three weeks against Miami Sunday. He told BTSC (via Dale Grdnic) he wouldn't be moved from his familiar left outside linebacker position, even considering Jason Worilds has been on fire recently.
