The curious case of the Bengals and Antonio Bryant turned out to be more odd than curious, and came to an end when the receiver was released on Sunday.
The Chiefs’ 20-17 loss to the Eagles on Friday dropped them to 0-3 this preseason — and 0-7 in preseason games since Todd Haley took over the team.

It’s the morning after … nine games were on the NFL preseason slate on Saturday night, so let’s take a bullet-point look on thoughts and observations from around the league.
Arian Foster will likely end that revolving door at running back for the Texans. Foster lit up the Cowboys for 110 yards and a touchdown to add the exclamation point to the position.
The person most likely to benefit from Kurt Warner’s retirement figured to be RB Beanie Wells because when your choices are Matt Leinart and Derek Anderson, running the ball seems like an attractive option.
NFL.com Fantasy Live analyst Dave Dameshek really lamented over which sleeper to pick during a recent segment we filmed, before finally settling on Ravens QB Joe Flacco.
No Sidney Rice. Teams taking liberties with his health. And now Brett Favre has fumbled and is seen shaking his hand. The overreaction here is that Favre is regretting coming back and he is going going to be the player that he was last year.
Bills RB C.J. Spiller had a slow start, racking up negative yards in the early going. But you have to credit the Bills for trying to get the ball into the hands of their playmaker.
QB Carson Palmer started the preseason efficient, working diligently to ease WR Terrell Owens into the lineup. Almost to the exclusion of everybody else.
The Lions offense continues to be impressive, and RB Jahvid Best continues to show that we should not be so quick to label Ryan Mathews as the top rookie running back.
Is Ryan Mathews a first-round pick? Seems like we have been debating that over and over again during the preseason. As, in the video above, I firmly believe that Mathews should be a first-round pick.
The Jaguars have pulled RB Maurice Jones-Drew for the rest of the preseason. Which is a good thing. The Jaguars should be trend setters here.
