DeAngelo Williams breaks silence, admits to tough season
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams talked to the media Wednesday. Unless you're dealing with Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, who was fined $50,000 last week on top of a $50,000 fine from 2013 for violating the NFL's media policy in terms of being available for interviews, that's typically not a big deal. It is here because Williams hadn't talked to the media since a few days before a Week 4 game at Baltimore.

Short week presents challenge for Ravens
OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- The Baltimore Ravens overcame the odds to hand the New Orleans Saints their first prime-time loss at home in five seasons. But recovering from a road "Monday Night Football" game presents a new set of challenges. Flying 2 1/2 hours back from New Orleans immediately after the game, the Ravens landed in Baltimore at 4 a.m. Tuesday. The coaches slept an hour at the team facility before starting their all-day preparation for the Chargers, so they could get the game plan to the players on Wednesday morning.

Colts' Daniel Herron could continue to start at RB over Trent Richardson
INDIANAPOLIS -- What seemed like a temporary switch at the starting running back position for the Indianapolis Colts because Trent Richardson missed some practice time last week with flu-like symptoms was actually not the case. Colts coach Chuck Pagano actually started Daniel “Boom” Herron at running back against the Jacksonville Jaguars because he outperformed Richardson in practice last week. Pagano didn’t say who will start at running back against the Washington Redskins on Sunday, but if he goes off performance against the Jaguars, Herron will continue to start.

Dolphins' Jarvis Landry 'wanted to scream' after seeing Odell Beckham Jr.'s catch
DAVIE, Fla. – Few NFL players know New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. as well as Miami Dolphins rookie receiver Jarvis Landry. The longtime friends were college teammates and roommates at LSU and, according to Landry, the pair talk daily. That is why Landry has a unique and well-informed perspective on Beckham's amazing, one-handed touchdown catch in last Sunday’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Some are calling it one of the greatest catches in NFL history, and Landry agrees.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – With Jamaal Charles and the Kansas City Chiefs’ No. 4 ranked rushing attack waiting in Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, the Denver Broncos’ injury issues on defense will require some attention. Linebacker Brandon Marshall, who is the team’s leading tackler and has played 95.5 percent of the team’s defensive snaps this season, did not practice Wednesday as he goes through the NFL’s concussion protocol.

Mike Pettine not loathe to challenge Josh Gordon
BEREA, Ohio -- There are no sacred cows with Mike Pettine. On Wednesday the Browns coach acknowledged the immense talent of Josh Gordon, but challenged him on one front. Pettine wants Gordon to be more aggressive in going after the ball on some throws. He referred to the throws on ESPN Radio’s "Mike & Mike" as “50-50 balls,” when making a catch or not sometimes comes down to effort. “As good as Josh is, and he knows this, just the competitive part down the field,” Pettine said.

Reflective Jamaal Charles dedicates game to drowning victim
KANSAS CITY, Mo. --The news about safety Eric Berry's lymphoma hit hard everyone connected with the Kansas City Chiefs, but perhaps no one more than running back Jamaal Charles. The two players became close in 2011. Berry and Charles suffered a torn ACL a week apart from one another, Berry in the season opener and Charles in Week 2. They pushed each other through the recovery from surgery and rehab, along with tight end Tony Moeaki, who tore his ACL the final week of the preseason that year.
