Resetting Patriots practice squad

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots filled the final two spots on their practice squad Friday by re-signing linebacker Ja'Gared Davis and also signing rookie receiver Jonathan Krause. Davis was waived Thursday so the Patriots could make room for linebacker Akeem Ayers, who was acquired in a trade from Tennessee. The 22-year-old Krause, who played at Vanderbilt, was originally signed by the Browns as an undrafted free agent. Krause (5-foot-11, 190 pounds) totaled 42 receptions for 714 yards and three touchdowns at Vanderbilt in 2013.

Heinz Field gets it's share of use between the Steelers, the Pitt Panthers and the High School Playoffs that are...

Kansas City Chiefs explain the Jamell Fleming and Marcus Cooper switch

Chiefs DC Bob Sutton explains the reasoning behind benching Marcus Cooper for Jamell Fleming. In a surprising move last week the Kansas City Chiefs swapped starting CB Marcus Cooper for Jamell Fleming, who was signed off the Ravens practice squad about six weeks earlier. Cooper had been struggling at corner so in hindsight it's not a surprise he was replaced. But replacing a starting cornerback is still a pretty big move. Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton admitted that Cooper was benched for performance reasons as he explained the switch. "Well, obviously, we just thought that we...

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots host the Chicago Bears on Sunday (1 p.m. ET), and here are some of the key areas to watch: Easley on the edge: With starting right defensive end Chandler Jones ruled out with a hip injury, the likely replacement is first-round draft pick Dominique Easley.

Geno Smith: Baby Steps

Geno has a chance to take a significant step forward against the Bills. Geno Smith turns the ball over, a lot.  Well gee, Smackdad, thank you so much for that keen insight, we would never have realized that had you not pointed it out to us.  Your depth of football knowledge knows no bounds. Yeah, well, we all know that.  Many of you may also know that Geno has only five games in his 23 game career where he has not turned the ball over.  Do you know what the Jets record in those games is?  That would be 4-1.  No turnovers, Jets usually win.  Simple right? Only once in Geno's career...
