Dolphins aware of video of OL coach Chris Foerster snorting white powder

Posted on by

The Miami Dolphins said Sunday night that they are aware of a video that appears to show offensive line coach Chris Foerster snorting a white powder off a table before a meeting.

“We were just made aware of the video and will have no comment at this time,” the team said in a statement.

The Miami Herald reported, citing league sources, that there will be an investigation into the video, and Foerster’s future with the team is expected to be determined as early as Monday.

I wouldn’t bet on it. Jones’ playing time is not likely to increase with Matthews out — expect Andre Holmes to fill Matthews’ role — so it’s more a matter of whether Tyrod Taylor is comfortable throwing to Jones. The rookie has struggled to finish routes and make clean catches so far, resulting in a team-low 3.4 percent rate of catches per route run. Taylor said this week he’ll continue pressing forward with Jones and keep his confidence in the second-round pick. But when the pressure mounts in games, I would expect Taylor to lean on Charles Clay and LeSean McCoy, who have proven more reliable pass-catchers. “I’m growing, I’m learning, and I know that,” Jones said this week. — Mike Rodak

Ajayi is fine. It’s the other players around him, particularly the offensive line, that has failed him most of this season. Teams are stacking the box and there are fewer holes for Ajayi. According to Pro Football Focus, 44 of his 46 yards last week were after contact. He is getting hit a lot at or near the line of scrimmage, which is much different compared to last season. — James Walker

Colts reportedly turn to Jacoby Brissett at QB, benching Scott Tolzein

Posted on by

The Colts are making a change after their Week 1 debacle and plan to start Jacoby Brissett at quarterback this weekend against the Cardinals, NFL Media reported Friday.

At a news conference later in the day, Colts coach Chuck Pagano declined to say who would start at QB on Sunday, but all expectations are the team will make a change.

Indianapolis gave Scott Tolzein the nod in the opener and watched him implode, completing 9 of 18 passes with two interceptions (both returned for touchdowns) before pulling the plug and going to Brissett in the fourth quarter of a 46-9 loss to the Rams.

Kelley, who is officially listed as questionable with a rib cartilage injury, was in the midst of arguably his best day with the Redskins, gaining 78 yards on 12 carries on Sunday, before leaving in the second quarter with the injury.

“When it happened, on a scale of 1 to 10, it was 10. Right now, it’s probably like a 5,” Kelley said Wednesday. “At the game, it was hard to breathe and my back started locking up. But right now, I’m pretty good.”

Reed injured his ribs and experienced an SC joint ligament sprain in his shoulder against the Rams, and he was limited in the second half. He has missed 20 games in his first four NFL seasons combined.

If Reed can’t play, the Redskins also have veterans Vernon Davis and Niles Paul and rookie Jeremy Sprinkle.

I’m going with Bill O’Brien’s decision to bench Tom Savage at halftime of the first game of the regular season.

Posted on by

Without getting into the merits of the decision, I was shocked O’Brien did it, only because O’Brien expressed regret about having a similarly quick hook in the past with Brian Hoyer. Even if Savage continued to struggle, I did not expect a change at QB midway through the first game of the 2017 season.

If you told me right after it was announced that Andrew Luck had shoulder surgery that he would enter the season without any meaningful timetable for his return, I wouldn’t have believed it. If you told me that Stephen Morris would outplay Scott Tolzien for a second straight preseason only to be cut, I wouldn’t have believed it. If you told me that the Colts would trade former first-round wide receiver Phillip Dorsett to the New England Patriots for a quarterback, I wouldn’t have believed it.

Nothing is funnier than seeing jilted, arrogant Patriots fans on Twitter saying nothing to anyone. It’s like they disappeared for a few hours.

And the Lions’ sixth-round pick from 2016 went out against the Cardinals and had himself a game. He finished with Detroit’s only sack of the game, added an additional four hurries, and nearly had an interception.

Washington plays at the Rams on Sunday. Gruden, the Washington head coach, battles his offensive coordinator from last season, McVay, now the Rams head coach.

These men share a close relationship. McVay views Gruden as a mentor. McVay’s team scored 46 points last week. Gruden’s, 17. McVay is 1-0. Gruden is 0-1.

Why are NFL teams using those pop-up medical tents on their sidelines?

Posted on by

The NFL is taking a new approach toward diagnosing injuries, particularly concussions, on the playing field, and it’s going to take up some prime real estate on the field level.

The Cowboys were riding high after Week 1’s win over the hapless Giants. Then they lost to the Broncos in a 42-17 blowout, and it raises a fair question: Is this Cowboys team destined for yet another early exit from the playoffs?

It’s become a hallmark of this Dallas team. The Cowboys haven’t made it past the Divisional Round since 1995, and last year’s 13-3 team lost a heartbreaker to the Green Bay Packers in divisional play after earning the top seed in the NFC and a first-round bye.

Hopes were high for this team heading into the season. Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott both had stellar rookie seasons, and Dallas boasts the best offensive line in the league. The team made moves this offseason to shore up the other side of the ball. The NFC East isn’t exactly shaping up to be the strongest division. Even considering how the Cowboys looked against the Broncos, there’s no reason to think this team can’t get to the postseason again.

Rockets owner Leslie Alexander initially pledged $4 million to relief, matching the Astros’ donation — but upped that on Tuesday to $10 million. The team’s initial statement said:

“Out hearts are heavy seeing the devastation that so many of our friends, family and neighbors are experiencing,” the Rockets said in a statement. “Leslie Alexander has contributed $4 million to Mayor Sylvester Turner’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund in an effort to help Clutch City come back stronger than ever. Please stay safe, Houston.”
