Cowboys' Randy Gregory suspended additional 10 games

NFL null null

Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory has been suspended an additional 10 games, the NFL announced Thursday.

Gregory, 23, is already serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. With the additional 10-game suspension, he will be able to return in Week 16.

The extra suspension stems from another violation in July. Since it was a repeat offense, the NFL's policy states the punishment must be a 10-game suspension.

Gregory will still be allowed to work o夜网论坛ut in the team's facility during his hiatus.

Dez Bryant is a habitual team meeting skipper, and Cowboys don't care

NFL

A player has issues, but Jerry Jones and the Cowboys don't care, because said player is very good at football.

We know — shocking.

MORE: Jones' embarrassing history of enabling

Turns out Dez Bryant's disappearing act last week, 夜网论坛when he was expected to report Monday for evaluation and treatment of a knee injury he suffered during Sunday night's win over the Bears but instead played hooky in fear of bad news, was nothing out of the ordinary for the seventh-year wide receiver.

"Dallas has tried to work with wide receiver Dez Bryant, Roc Nation has done the same, and there have been improvements," ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted Sunday. "But Bryant has demonstrated a pattern of irresponsible behavior throughout his time in Dallas, being late to or flat out missing medical treatment or team meetings at least 20 and possibly as many as 40 times during his Cowboys career, according to sources familiar with the situation.

"As one Cowboys player remarked, 'If you were hoping for him to come to a scheduled meeting, he may or may not be there; but if you need a first down on third and 14, throw it to Dez.' One source said Bryant has been late or missed treatment on his foot injury that dates back to last season 'at least 7 or 8 times this year alone' — and he has made strides over time. Bryant does not believe it to be a serious issue and the Cowboys publicly have supported him. In the end, it comes to this: Bryant isn't doi[......]

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor forgets to line up behind center, snap goes horribly wrong

NFL

Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor has taken thousands of snaps in his life, but apparently even夜网论坛 he needs the occasional reminder on which lineman is giving him the ball.

Taylor went shotgun early in the first quarter Sunday against the Rams, but stood directly behind guard Richie Incognito instead of center Eric Wood. The result was, well, not good.

You've got to wonder what Rams defenders were thinking. "Hey, watch the trick play! Could be a direct snap! Wait ... I don't think he knows where he is."

Despite the gaffe, Taylor led the Bills on a seven-minute scoring drive, eventually hitting Justin Hunter on a 4-yard touchdown pass.

Nice recovery.

Patrick Peterson warms up on MNF in a T-Rex costume

NFL null null null

The Arizona Cardinals like to have fun. That much has been made clear in recent seasons when members of their team have warmed up in a number of interesting costumes.

Monday night, ahead of their clash against the New York Jets, Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson lost a bet and was forced to warm up in a T-Rex costume. The result was hilarious.

Just like Dale Earnhardt Jr., Su'a Cravens needs glasses because of concussion, expert says

NFL

Su’a Cravens’s concussion two games ago probably did not permanently alter his vision and force him into a lifetime of wearing glasses. The Washington Redskins rookie linebacker may have jumped to conclusions by claiming that last week.

But Cravens wasn’t far off, says one expert. And he appears to have gone against the norm of most athletes who don’t, or can’t, acknowledge that the brain trauma they've suffered has affected their eyesight.

MORE: Poor play, referee-controlled games turning NFL fans away

“A lot of people don’t have the vocabulary to clearly express how they’re feeling. They just say, ‘I’m not feeling right,’” said Dr. Eric Singman, chief of general eye service at Johns Hopkins Hospital’s Wilmer Eye Institute. Singman, a specialist in neuro-opthalmology, has published several studies on the effects of concussions on vision and their treatment — including athletes of all ages. 

Athletes in general, especially in football, are notorious for hiding concussion symptoms, Singman said. But an inability to describe exactly what’s wrong with their sight compounds that, and a neurologist is more likely to diagnose it than an eye doctor.

“A lot of them basically get around the visual pr夜网论坛oblem, by either bypassing it or working around it,’’ he added, pointing out that athletes are not alone in doing so. They find that they lose their place while reading, get headaches, are unable to scroll on their computers[......]

Ryan Fitzpatrick vents about benching

NFL null null null null

A frustrated Ryan Fitzpatrick wore his heart on his sleeve after leading the New York Jets from behind to a 24-16 victory 夜网论坛Sunday over the Baltimore Ravens.

After replacing injured starter Geno Smith in the second quarter, Fitzpatrick made it clear he does not intend to remain as backup going forward, citing a newfound chip on his shoulder. He went on to vent candidly about the benching in favor of Smith a week earlier, and then called out the Jets front office and coaching staff who made the decision.

STEELE: Why Geno still deserves more chances

"When the owner stops believing in you and the GM stops believing in you and coaches stop believing in you, sometimes all you have is yourself," Fitzpatrick told reporters at MetLife Stadium. "You try to get over it. It took me a couple days. I told a couple of guys I'm going need a couple days for this one, to let it sink in.

"Going back to me being human and not being a robot, yeah, there's strong emotion there for me. Especially not knowing if that was the last time I was going to be out t[......]

Jarvis Landry on Aaron Williams: Dirtiest hit of the year?

NFL

Jarvis Landry felt bad about doing this to Aaron Williams. That's ... a start, maybe.

That was Landry headbutting Williams during the Dolphins' game against the Bills on Sunday. He went high and left his feet for the crack-back block when he absolutely did not need to do 夜网论坛so. It's the "defenseless player" rule writ large.

MORE: Live scores, stats from Week 7

To make things worse, Williams missed 13 games with concussion-related issues last year and left the game. His return was questionable.

Fox officiating analyst Mike Pereira said that while the hit was illegal, it was still a football play.

Derek Jeter supports Colin Kaepernick's protests

NFL null null MLB null

Through all his exploits on and off the field, Derek Jeter remained indifferent when it came to joining a conversation on social issues during his playing career.

Now retired, the former Yankees great has devoted much of his time to helping athletes hone their voice, and if they want to use it speak out for change, like 49ers quarterback Coli夜网论坛n Kaepernick has done on a grand scale this NFL season, he sees no problem with it.

WEEK 8 PICKS: Straight up | Against the spread 

"If you have the platform to speak up and you choose to do so, then that is your prerogative," Jeter said of Kaepernick's national anthem protests when asked Wednesday at the 20th anniversary celebration for his Turn 2 Foundation, via the New York Post.

Kaepernick became the controversial face of a movement against racial injustices and police brutality when he began kneeling for "The Star-Spangled Banner" nearly three months ago. It's gotten the attention of Jeter, whose website, The Players' Tribune, has hosted several personal essays penned by athletes taking up th[......]

Still alive in AFC, Jets sadly have no choice but to count on Ryan Fitzpatrick

NFL

After all the drama of the last three weeks surrounding their quarterbacks, the Jets suddenly find themselves in two very bizarre positions: in the playoff chase, and stuck with a completely unpredictable, hyper-sensitive and well-paid quarterback.

Yes, things almost would have been easier for New York had it lost in Cleveland on Sunday.

MORE: Jets-Browns highlights | Week 8 scoreboard

Had they lost, the Jets would have had yet another quarterback controversy raging all week, true, and some insanely nasty back-page headlines back home. But what they have instead is a 3-5 record, which leaves them in the thick of the AFC race … and Ryan Fitzpatrick coming off another victorious half of football to cover up for one wretched half.

So this is the rollercoaster the Jets will ride for a while now.

In the last two games, they lost Fitzpatrick’s replacement Geno Smith for the season, won behind Fitzpatrick over the Ravens, rode out Fitzpatrick’s post-game temper tantrum and Todd Bowles’ sharply-worded retort, stumbled through a horrendous half by Fitzpatrick against the Browns and then pulled themselves together after halftime to win, 31-28.

The difference between 2-6 (or, worse, 1-7) and 3-5 is enormous for the Jets. They can’t give up on the season now. They can’t look to the future and go young and see what they have in Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg. They can’t say, thank you for your service, Ryan, but it did[......]
