US District Court Judge nullifies Tom Brady's four-game suspension


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:29 am ET) US District Court Judge Richard Berman has nullified the NFL's four-game suspension of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

Berman said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell went too far in affirming punishment of Brady for the quarterback's alleged role in the Deflategate incident. 

"Because there was no notice of a four-game suspension in the circumstances presented here, Commissioner Goodell may be said to have 'dispense[d] his own brand of industrial justice,'" Berman wrote in a 40-game ruling.

Berman's ruling means Brady is cleared to play Week 1 (Sept. 10) against the Steelers.

Ankle injury not expected to keep Bucs' Jameis Winston out of opener


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

While the injury is not expected to keep Winston from starting the season opener against the Titans, Koetter admitted the ankle injury is having a negative impact on his play. 

“It’s affecting him a little bit,” Koetter said. “If you’ve ever had (a sprained ankle) and had to move around and cut and plant, it can be painful. But it’s easily something he can get through. He’ll be ready to go. He’ll be full-speed by Tennessee. It’s not anything he can’t play on.”

Bills coach Rex Ryan officially tabs Tyrod Taylor as QB


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/31/2015) Bills coach Rex Ryan made the news official at a press conference Monday, naming Tyrod Taylor the team's starting quarterback, citing his "explosiveness" at the position, per The Buffalo News

Taylor has put up impressive numbers during the preseason, going 24-for-31 for 236 yards, but has not started a game since the 2011 Orange Bowl when he was the signal-caller for Virginia Tech. He has played in 14 games as a backup with the Ravens.

Ryan said that Taylor is "on top of what we are doing," and that with a team built to win now, Taylor gives them the best chance over fellow quarterbacks EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel. 

Taylor is scheduled to make $833,333 this season, but that figure could increase to $2 million with performance- and playing-time bonuses. 


Redskins name Kirk Cousins starter for 2015


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

"It's Kirk's team," Gruden said. "He's proven that he is the best quarterback on our roster at this time."

Cousins is entering his fourth season with the Redskins. In nine career starts, he is 2-7. Last year, he started five games and led Redskins quarterbacks in passing yards (1,710) and touchdowns (10), but also threw nine interceptions.


Report: Bills name Tyrod Taylor starting QB


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/31/2015) After a wide-open quarterback competition, the results are apparently in for Bills coach Rex Ryan. According to FOX Sports insider Jay Glazer, the Bills are prepared to name Tyrod Taylor their starter for Week 1. 

Taylor has performed well in the preseason, earning the edge over EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel, perhaps due to his threat as a runner in addition to his passing ability. 

Taylor has yet to make an NFL start, appearing in 14 games in four seasons as a backup with the Ravens. 


Redskins name Kirk Cousins Week 1 starter


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/31/2015) The drama never stops in D.C. and according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, the Redskins have informed players that they are planning to have Kirk Cousins start their Week 1 contest against the Dolphins and not Robert Griffin III, who is apparently battling a concussion problem. 

There are reports of a rift between the football operations and ownership regarding Griffin, who has struggled this preseason before getting injured in the team's second preseason contest against Detroit. Griffin was cleared to play in the team's third preseason game before an independent neurologist reversed course, saying Griffin was still dealing with concussion-related symptoms.

Cousins has played well during the preseason, going 40-for-53 for 435 yards.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"My plan was to give everybody opportunities," Ryan said Thursday. "Nobody can say nobody wasn't given a fair shot here."

Manuel has completed 13 of 22 passes for 188 yards and two touchdowns through two preseason games.

Taylor has completed 12 of 18 passes for 114 yards. He also has rushed for a team-high 88 yards on 10 attempts through two games.

Cassel has appeared in just one game, completing 7 of 8 passes for 45 yards.


Browns QB Johnny Manziel has no structural damage in elbow


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2015) Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel underwent an MRI after experiencing elbow soreness earlier in the week. However, coach Mike Pettine said the MRI came back clean and did not reveal structural damage.

Pettine added Manziel, who did not throw Wednesday, has been dealing with elbow soreness since high school. Pettine expects the team to err on the side of caution and shut down Manziel for the rest of the week, which means he will likely miss Saturday's preseason game against the Bucs.

"Could he play [Saturday] if he had to?" Pettine said Wednesday, per Ohio.com. "More than likely he could. But why do that in the preseason?"

Manziel's latest issue flared up during Sunday's practice session. He also didn't throw Aug. 11 because his elbow was bothering him

The second-year quarterback has been having a decent preseason. He has completed 17 of 29 passes for 160 yards and one touchdown through two preseason games. He also rushed for 33 yards and one touchdown on five carries and has a 85.4 quarterback rating.
