Cleveland Browns notes: Jake Locker will start at quarterback for Tennessee Titans

For better or for worse, like renewing vows in a bad marriage, Jake Locker will start at quarterback for the Titans against the Browns on Oct. 5 after missing last week's game against the Colts with a wrist injury. Locker was a first-round choice by the Titans in 2011. He is 9-12 as a starter. He has thrown 19 touchdown passes and 25 interceptions.

Rich Gannon sounds off on Dennis Allen firing

Rich Gannon took to Sirius XM and made his opinions known regarding the state of the Raiders organization. Rich Gannon is the co-host of the show The Sirius XM Blitz and yesterday, as he often does, he loudly opined about the Raiders and their recent firing of Dennis Allen. "I can't say I'm surprised," began Gannon. "They had to get off to a good start, I think everyone was targeting this bye week. They had to be 2-2 at the worst, as it turned out they were 0-4 and there was no sign, to me anyway, that there was any progress." Gannon then discussed the free agent signings that the Raiders...

Travis Benjamin Vows to be More Confident, Competition at Long Snapper Commences

Travis Benjamin Vows to be More Confident, Competition at Long Snapper Commences

The Cleveland Browns' special teams unit is getting a lot of attention this week, but it's not about a replacement at the typical positions at kicker and punter. Instead, the questions involve WR Travis Benjamin on punt returns and LS Christian Yount. For now, Benjamin is safe. Yount isn't. When the Browns signed LS Charley Hughlett to their practice squad on Tuesday, I speculated that the two could split reps in practice this week and that if Yount messed up against the Titans, Hughlett would already have some chemistry with the rest of our unit and would get the call up. As it turns out,...

David Nelson misses practice for Jets

There was no sign of wide receiver David Nelson at New York Jets practice Wednesday, the first time the Jets took the field since a 24-17 loss to the Lions Sunday. Nelson suffered a sprained left ankle in the game. On Monday, Jets coach Rex Ryan said he was unsure of the extent of the injury, but the fact that Nelson didn’t finish the game was a bad sign. But in good news for the team’s banged-up secondary, the Jets did get cornerback Dee Milliner back on the field.

Antonio Brown is entitled to a drop every now and then

While he may have come under a bit of scrutiny for his 15-yard, excessive-celebration penalty following his first touchdown early in the game against Tampa Bay on Sunday at Heinz Field, Steelers Pro Bowl wideout Antonio Brown has received even more criticism for dropping what would have been a fairly easy catch and possibly a third touchdown in the fourth quarter of what turned out to be a 27-24 loss. When quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and running back Le'Veon Bell cleanly executed their portion of a flea-flicker play early in the fourth quarter of what would soon be a crushing 27-24...

What did Alex fetch? A look at QB's trade to Chiefs

What did Alex fetch? A look at QB's trade to Chiefs

The 49ers' strategy for sustainability involves loading up on draft picks and always having an influx of young players who can replace expensive, soon-to-be free-agent talent. Last year, Trent Baalke appeared to hit the jackpot when he traded Alex Smith to the Chiefs for not one but two early-round draft picks. Running back Carlos Hyde is one of the four players Trent Baalke parlayed out of the Alex Smith trade to Kansas City.

Broncos Cardinals injury report: Danny Trevathan practices Wednesday; Carson Palmer sees specialist

It appears doubtful Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer will be ready for their Week 5 matchup against the Denver Broncos. It wasn't Denver Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan's first day back at practice Wednesday, but it was his first practice during a Wednesday-Friday game preparation that saw him participate fully since injuring his leg in training camp. How good was it to see Danny Trevathan back out on the practice field Wednesday? Let's go around the locker room! "He looked real good. He looked good Monday as well so it's good to have him back." - John Fox "Oh yeah....
