- Browns QB Jake Delhomme will undergo an MRI as early as today to determine the extent of an ankle injury suffered against the Buccaneers. Apparently, he hurt himself in the first half but powered through the pain to complete the game.
- Ines Sainz, the object of the recent affection/alleged misogyny by the Jets, says she doesn’t plan to sue the club. This article is behind a paywall on the Newsday website, but hey, the headline is enough to cause a little bit of relief for the Jets. Even if she would have had no chance in hell of winning any kind of judgment.
- Another twist in the Logan Mankins-Patriots contract debacle has appeared. Although an ESPN report came out Sunday saying the two sides were close to an agreement, only to be thwarted when Mankins refused to publicly apologize to New England owner Bob Kraft, Kraft said that simply isn’t true. “That is a bold-faced fib,” Kraft told WEEI. “We never had a deal with Logan.”
- Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt talked to RB Tim Hightower about securing the ball and, you know, not fumbling so much. That’s probably a good idea, because Hightower – who already has a reputation for putting the ball on the ground – lost two more fumbles Sunday.
- Despite a poor performance against the Saints, Minnesota owner Zygi Wilf still believes the pieces are in place for the Vikings to win a Super Bowl. Perhaps, Whisenhunt needs a come-to-Jesus chat with Wilf after he’s done talking to Hightower.
- Where is Jeff Feagles when you need him? The Giants fans would like to know after watching punter Matt Dodge endure another performance in which the rookie struggled to, um, punt the football very well.
- Neither the Jets nor the Giants sold out their season openers in the New Meadowlands Stadium. In part, you can blame the expensive personal seat licenses.
- There was as kerfuffle before the Patriots-Bengals game when a fan needed immediate medical attention. The Patriots said today that the fan, whose name has not been made public, has died.
- Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco took Patriots fan Will Ditullo to dinner where the two talked about sports and about life in general.
