Should ILB Paul Worrilow Be Benched?

Should ILB Paul Worrilow Be Benched?

Worrilow has been nearly free of criticism. The undrafted free agent seemed to be the only player who could tackle in 2013, working his way up to playing time and shining in a lost season. After adding weight, and calling the plays, the surprising player is at the top of the team's problems. Undrafted linebacker Paul Worrilow was one of the reasons Atlanta Falcons fans were optimistic coming into 2014. The undersized player added weight, quickly became a starter, and earned play calling duties. However, this season he has been a disaster. The middle of the field is consistently open, with...

Cowboys make practice squad move

IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys released center Ronald Patrick from the practice squad and signed guard Rishaw Johnson. Johnson, 6-foot-5, 313 pounds, was cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week. He started his college career at Ole Miss but was kicked off the team in 2010 for violating team rules. He transferred to California (Pa.) University and played in the 2012 Senior Bowl. He has spent time with the Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs.

Bears promote Chris Williams, waive Rashad Ross

The Chicago Bears elevated receiver Chris Williams from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Tuesday and waived receiver Rashad Ross in a corresponding roster move. Williams debuted in Week 2 at San Francisco, but has spent the last two weeks on the club’s practice squad. Ross played in Chicago’s last two games, returning five kickoffs for 106 yards. The club’s decision to move up Williams likely means he’ll take on the role of the club’s primary kick returner.

Redskins Blog: Redskins bring nose tackle Robert Thomas back to practice squad

The Redskins announced Tuesday morning that they have re-signed nose tackle Robert Thomas to their practice squad three days after releasing him from the 53-man roster.

Lions promote George Winn from practice squad

In need of help at running back, the Detroit Lions have signed George Winn from their practice squad. By the end of Sunday's game against the New York Jets, the Detroit Lions were down to only Reggie Bush at running back. Joique Bell suffered an apparent concussion, and Theo Riddick and Montell Owens both left with hamstring injuries. Aside from Bush, fullback Jed Collins was really the only other option in the backfield if the Lions wanted to run the ball. It was not a good situation, to say the least. In order to make sure they're not in a similar situation this week, the Lions have...

Lions place Montell Owens on injured reserve

The Detroit Lions have cleared room for George Winn by putting Montell Owens on injured reserve. Fullback Montell Owens' season has come to an end. In order to make room for running back George Winn, who was promoted from the practice squad earlier on Tuesday, the Detroit Lions decided to place Owens on injured reserve. Owens has had a tough time staying on the field in his two seasons with the Lions. Last year, he made one single appearance in between stints on injured reserve, and this year he only managed to play in three games thanks to a hamstring injury. He was brought in to be a...
