Jermichael Finley in ICU, has regained almost all movement
Packers tight end Jermichael Finley suffered a scary looking injury that left his teammates shaken up as they watched Finley be immobilized and taken out of Lambeau Field on a gurney by medical personnel.
Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that Finley remains in the intensive care unit at an area hospital on Monday, but that tests have come back negative thus far and that Finley has regained almost all movement after not being able to move immediately after taking a hit from Browns safety Tashaun Gipson. Tom Pelissero of USA Today adds that Finley is not expected to require surgery.
Pelissero also reports that the Packers don’t expect to know if or when Finley can return to the field for several weeks. The tight end is expected to remain in ICU while doctors do more tests because it offers the most comfort and 24-hour support.
It’s the second time this season that Finley has been knocked out of a game by a blow to the head and/or neck. The last one caused his five-year-old son to tell him that he didn’t want his father to play football anymore, a sentiment others in the Finley family may share after Sunday’s apparently significant injury
Lance Briggs out 4-6 weeks per ESPN
Bryant McKinnie in South Beach what's the worst that could happen.....

DAVIE - The Miami Dolphins were clearly running out of options when it came to fixing the struggling offensive line, so General Manager Jeff Ireland reportedly went the trade route.
According to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer the Dolphins (3-3) have acquired former University of Miami standout Bryant McKinnie from the Baltimore Ravens.
McKinnie, 34, was recently replaced as the Ravens starting left tackle by Eugene Monroe, whom the Ravens traded to acquire from the Jacksonville Jaguars two weeks ago.
McKinnie, who has started 152 games in his 12 NFL seasons, is rated the 65th best offensive tackle by ProFootballFocus.com. Tyson Clabo, the Dolphins struggling right tackle, is rated 66th.
So far this season McKinnie has allowed one sack, four quarterback hits and 15 hurries. However, he's been a liability from the run blocking standpoint.
The Dolphins explored signing McKinnie as a free agent this offseason, but opted to go another avenue, signing Tyson Clabo and Lance Louis in free agency, and drafting Dallas Thomas in the third-round of the 2013 draft.
None of those players have panned out, which explains why the Dolphins are ranked 31st in sacks allowed per pass play.
At this point it is uncertain if Miami will use McKinnie at right or left tackle. Jonathan Martin, the team's 2012 second-round pick, is presently manning the left tackle spot. However, Martin played right tackle for the first 12 games of the 2012 season.
Any trade for McKinnie is likely contingent on the 6-foot-8, 350-pounder passing a physical.
http://deadspin.com/patriots-had-che...cia-1449260023Patriots Had Cheated Before On FGs; Jets Warned Officials
You're looking at a screengrab from last weeks' New England win over the Saints, shared by the Globe's Ben Volin. On a New Orleans field goal attempt, rookie tackle Chris Jones is pushing Will Svitek into the offensive lineman. It's the same illegal move, with the same two players, that got the Pats flagged against the Jets last night. This was a designed play, and the Jets reportedly knew it was coming—and alerted officials to look for it.
Despite the controversy over the NFL's initial description of the wording, the rule is the rule, and the Patriots ran afoul of it on Nick Folk's missed 56-yard attempt in overtime. Even Bill Belichick, who thought it had been misapplied yesterday, has come around, telling ESPN he's seen the light.
"Obviously we are wrong," he said, before adding: "It's our job to understand the rules. Whatever the bottom line is, we didn't do it properly."
But is Belichick just mad he finally got caught? The Patriots had used the push move at least once before yesterday. Perhaps his mistake was using it against coaching brothers. But whether Rob Ryan alerted Rex or the Jets picked it up on their own, NFL.com's Albert Breer reports that the flag was thrown in part because Jets coaches told officials to be on the lookout for a push during FG block attempts.
yes, getting a penalty is cheating, lol.
Watch the guy in the center of the Jets formation (Coples) plow into the butt of the guy in front of him, bowling him over the line face-forward. The time? 16 seconds left in the 4th quarter, yesterday.
Apparently the Jets told the refs to watch for this, in overtime. Props to them for unexpected intelligence, I guess, since it was he correct call, though a call that had been overlooked how many times on the hundreds of FG and PAT attempts this season? Certainly it was overlooked a couple of minutes before, when the Jets did the same thing.
And why can't we post a gif with an "img" tag anymore?

Browns name Jason Campbell QB
BEREA, Ohio -- Jason Campbell will take over at quarterback for the Cleveland Browns on Sunday in Kansas City against the Chiefs, replacing Brandon Weeden, who was ineffective Sunday in Green Bay and in the second half of his previous start against Detroit.
The Browns' Jason Campbell will start at quarterback Sunday in Kansas City, replacing Brandon Weeden.
"It really is about production and ultimately being consistent in that area," coach Rob Chudzinski said Wednesday.
Campbell will be the 20th quarterback to start a game for the Browns since 1999. He draws the difficult task of facing the league's top pass-rushing team -- the Chiefs lead the league with 35 sacks. He has not started a game since November, when he threw for 109 yards for Chicago in a loss to San Francisco.
But Weeden has struggled the past six quarters, in which the Browns have been outscored 55-13. He ranks 32nd in the league in completion percentage, 31st in yards per attempt and 30th in passer rating.
Campbell had six starts in 2011 with Oakland and had the Raiders off to a 4-2 start. But he hurt his shoulder against the Browns, and the Raiders soon acquired Carson Palmer, effectively ending Campbell's career in Oakland.
Robert Flores and Matt Williamson discuss a change at QB for the Browns, Dez Bryant versus Calvin Johnson and other topics submitted via listener emails.
"I think looking at Jason, the things he brings to the table [are] his leadership, his experience," Chudzinski said. "He's been productive and successful in the league. Look at his arm strength, his mobility and those things, [then] tie in from a game-plan standpoint for what we need in this game."
Chudzinski said the position will be evaluated on a weekly basis, although he acknowledged that going back and forth isn't ideal.
"I'm committed to doing what I feel gives us the best chance to win in all cases," Chudzinski said.
^ Seeing teams like the Browns, Bills, and Vikings go through multiple quarterbacks in a season makes you realize just how lucky we are to go from Peyton Manning to Andrew Luck. Other NFL fanbases have to hate the Colts for Manning's injury rewarding the team with Andrew Luck.
We're fortunate how durable they've been for the most part. The Vikings just get QB's past their prime the others? Yeah
Some QB's get hurt and never really recover.
Stories like his are why I don't take my checking acct info anywhere unless I have to and its in my purse
Feds: Parking lot attendant stole $225,000 from Eagles' Todd Herremans
A parking lot attendant who watched over cars belonging to the Philadelphia Eagles as they played was accused this morning in stealing more than $225,000 from one of the player’s bank accounts.
Robert Von Ryan, 37, of Philadelphia, was charged with bank fraud. According to federal prosecutors, Von Ryan entered the vehicle of an Eagle identified as "T.H." From the car, he took documents that contained the player’s checking account number.
A spokesman for the Eagles confirmed that the victim was offensive lineman Todd Herremans and the lot was at the team's hotel in Philadelphia. The attendant, the spokesman said, was a subcontractor and not employed by the team.
Using the number, Von Ryan transfered $225,034.52 from Herremans’ UBS checking account to his own, said U.S. Attorney Zane David Memeger. The transfers occured between 2009 and 2012.
If convicted, Von Ryan faces a possible sentence of up to 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine.
This is a developing story. Check back later for more information.

Calvin Johnson just logged 329 receiving yards. Game-winning drive with a minute to play and no timeouts!
What makes it even incredible is the final stats.
Lions 623 yds, Dallas 266!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can you imagine that? Yet they had to make the unbelievable drive from their 20 to win the game and with no timeouts. Unbelievable.
On another note, how much did it take for Peyton to complete that drive? Sometimes it's so easy for that man.
LOl @ the announcers writing Det off after Dallas went up 10 with that FG
and lol @ Dallas. Pathetic. Just pathetic
(on a related note, many people hate the prevent defense. I am one of them. However, Dallas showed what can go wrong by being overly aggressive)
LOl @ Dallas. BAHAHAHA
Dallas Cowboys: 268 yards
Calvin Johnson: 329 yards
Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005
NBA Champions 1989, 1990, 2004
Like I've said all season, Dallas never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity. That was classic Dallas. They will somehow figure out a way to lose that pathetic division.
Great win by Detroit though. Stafford has such a cannon and Johnson is just a beast. If Detroit makes the playoffs, this win will be a huge reason why.
Holy crap Garcon just had an AMAZING catch.
and then we fumble the snap on 3rd and 1....
2 Peyton Manning turnovers
D hall pick 6
The blocking after a screen pass for a TD has been extremely good for the Broncos in many occasions this season.
Denver's defense is so dirty, did Peyton go to Skid Row and recruit these guys? RG3 injured, doesn't look to bad though.
I said it on facebook already, but to me this one falls on RG3 and Kyle. The defense came back down to earth in the second half, but RG3 has made bad reads, holding the ball forever, staring down receivers, no pocket awareness. Its only one game, but this cant become the norm.
And while its true RG3 had knee surgery, no one can use the excuse we are playing a great defense or hes rusty.
Though I am pissed at our wide outs. Way too many drops. Unacceptable. Just simply unacceptable.
Wow....no one would have ever guessed we were up 21-7 in the 3rd quarter...
Wow Cousins got rocked.
Wonder if the DEN defender gets fined for that one later this week
The announcer with Troy Aikman on the Denver broadcast(Brennaman?) really had me PO'd. When discussing AFC power teams(even mentioning NE and Cincy) not one mention of the Colts. Then he even went on to say nobody from the AFC South or North can distance themselves from the Chargers, all the while praising teams like the Broncos, Niners, and Seahawks.(teams we have all beat) National media will never change.
