The Falcons are all but perfectly healthy for their Sunday game against visiting Cleveland. Cornerback Robert Alford (wrist) and offensive tackle Jonathan Scott (hamstring) are out, but the other eight players on their injury report are probable.
The Falcons' first splash in free agency this spring was a big one -- figuratively and literally. The team has agreed to terms with defensive tackle Paul Soliai, formerly with the Dolphins, and offensive lineman Jon Asamoah, formerly with the Chiefs, ESPN reports.
With the release of veteran receiver Jason Avant, the Panthers are showing their faith in undrafted rookie wideout Philly Brown, reports the team's website. He'll be the No. 3 receiver behind Kelvin Benjamin and Jerricho Cotchery.
Panthers defensive end Frank Alexander has been suspended for the next 10 games by the league, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. He had already been suspended for four games for violating the NFL substance abuse policy.
