Lions promote RB Rudi Johnson

A report out of Detroit indicates that Rudi Johnson has moved ahead of rookie Kevin Smith on the Lions’ depth chart. Signs of this move began in Week 3, when Johnson saw the lion’s share of the carries against San Francisco.

Whisenhunt: Boldin not seriously hurt

After tests were done on receiver Anquan Boldin’s spine, and no serious injuries were detected, the receiver was cleared to fly back to Arizona on Sunday night, Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said that his Monday news conference.

O’Sullivan continues to impress Belichick

Back in 2006, the quarterback New England kept on its practice squad was J.T. O’Sullivan. Now, the Patriots will go from working with O’Sullivan to playing against him as New England readies to play San Francisco.

Rams will stick with QB Green for now

If the Rams are making a quarterback change and going back to Marc Bulger from Trent Green, that news will have to wait until at least Tuesday.

Haslett brings experience to Rams

The Rams fired coach Scott Linehan after just four games, but football fans should be very familiar with his replacement, new Rams coach Jim Haslett.

Rodgers has shoulder sprain

Aaron Rodgers suffered a right shoulder sprain during the Packers’ 30-21 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said during his Monday news conference.

Rams have some work to do

So the Rams got on the board first, coming up with one more firing than victory. They fired Scott Linehan very early this morning — maybe even late Sunday night — and appointed Jim Haslett as the interim head coach.

Start your studs, fantasy owners!

Fantasy football, like the NFL, is unpredictable.

So when I’m getting questions in my live chats about whether to start LaDainian Tomlinson or Matt Forte, I get a little worried. Sure, Forte has been solid and has emerged into a terrific option.

Rams fire Linehan

The St. Louis Rams have fired Scott Linehan as head coach and chosen defensive coordinator Jim Haslett as their interim head coach.

Texans S Brown breaks arm

Texans safety C.C. Brown broke his arm in a 30-27 loss to Jaguars. He will have surgery Monday. Coach Gary Kubiak wasn’t sure how long Brown will be out.

Tomlinson scores two touchdowns

Isn’t it amazing how one long run can help a running back’s final stat line?

LaDainian Tomlinson broke off a late 41-yard touchdown run to put a nail in Oakland’s coffin. The veteran runner finished with 115 scrimmage yards and two scores in a 28-18 win.

Eagles-Bears inactives

Eagles inactives: QB A.J. Feeley (3rd), RB Brian Westbrook, DE Bryan Smith, G Shawn Andrews, G Mike McGlynn, WR Kevin Curtis, TE L.J. Smith, DE Victor Abiamiri.

Analysis: QB Donovan McNabb is active and will start, as expected. RB Correll Buckhalter will start and see more carries with Westbrook inactive. Curtis and Smith are also out, so WRs Reggie Brown, Hank Baskett and DeSean Jackson should see plenty of targets.

Brian Westbrook OUT

I’ll have the complete list of inactives soon, but Brian Westbrook is inactive and will not play tonight against Chicago. Correll Buckhalter will see the majority of carries in his absence.

Moss continues dominance of Dallas

Santana Moss has seven catches for 142 yards after two-plus quarters against the Cowboys.

In his previous five games against Dallas since joining the Redskins in 2005, Moss had 28 receptions for 537 yards with four touchdowns. He also has a touchdown in six straight games, including the postseason.
