Neither Doug Martin nor Gerald McCoy will start for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while the Atlanta Falcons will be without receiver Roddy White. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have to beat the Atlanta Falcons without running back Doug Martin and defensive tackle Gerald McCoy. Martin is out with a knee injury he suffered in week one, while McCoy is recovering from a broken hand he suffered against the St. Louis Rams. For the Atlanta Falcons, wide receiver Roddy White will not be active tonight and he'll be replaced by Harry Douglas and Devin Hester. Rookie tackle Jake Matthews is healthy enough...

Chris McGee and Rand Getlin join Jim Rome to discuss Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer getting arrested on a domestic violence charge.
Wide receiver DeSean Jackson ran a handful of half-speed pass routes and caught some passes during the individual drill portion of practice on Thursday, but that was the extent of his action, and it wasn’t enough to count even as limited participation on the daily injury report. Jackson continues to nurse a sprained AC joint […]
The Vikings announced at 5:45 p.m. that they have released troubled WR Jerome Simpson. That brings to an end a rocky tenure from 2012-present in which he caught 74 passes for exactly 1,000 yards with the Vikings. It was a rough go from the start, but the Vikings kept bringing him back on one-year deals — three times, including this season. Here are snippets from the Star Tribune stories when he signed his initial deal in 2012 and this most recent re-sign in 2014: 2012: Since free agency began in mid-March, the Vikings have been doing their research on Simpson, both impressed with his...
RICK TELANDER: There were lots and lots of media members in the Bears interview room Thursday afternoon, waiting for the Brandon Marshall show.
Cardinals signed RB Jalen Parmele.
The feeling around the Giants that their 0-2 start is more a function of their own mishaps and lack of execution than anything the Lions and Cardinals did to beat them runs so deep that this week's opponent has become almost an afterthought. Clean up their own mistakes, the thinking goes, and they'll be OK. It's such a self-centered sentiment that when defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul was asked what concerns him about the unbeaten Texans heading into Sunday's game at MetLife Stadium, he dismissed it with a one-word answer:
FLORHAM PARK, NJ -- New York Jets linebacker and special teams stalwart Nick Bellore did not practice Thursday with a hip injury. Jets coach Rex Ryan said there is a chance that Bellore won't be available for the Monday night game against the Bears. "Well, certainly there is a chance that he won't go because he never practiced today even," Ryan said, "so there is still that chance." This was the first day that Bellore has been listed with a hip injury.
After last week?s 24-7 win against the Lions, Carolina?s backup quarterback tweeted to Panthers fans that if they?re going to sell their tickets to Sunday night?s game against Pittsburgh, ?please…
Here's your first quarter open thread, and your chance to give us your prediction on the game. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers face the Atlanta Falcons in just over an hour on Thursday Night Football. The one and likely only nationally televised game for the Bucs this season, as they cling on to their division hopes despite an abysmal 0-2 start. Meanwhile, the Falcons want to prove they're better than the team that went 4-12 last year. I'm a homer and I'm tired of making negative predictions on the Bucs' chances, which would be what I did for all of last year, so I'm saying they pull out the win,...
IRVING, Texas -- Unable to practice Wednesday with tightness in his back, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo took every snap in practice Thursday and is set to play Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. Romo said he felt good after practice and said the day off gave him time to build more strength as he continues to return to form from back surgery. He said his practice schedule going forward would be dependent on how he feels. "It was just to try something new," passing game coordinator Scott Linehan said.
