Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell on injury: 'The knee is close to 100 percent'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:21 am ET) Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell missed Pittsburgh's playoff game against the Ravens and the Pro Bowl because he suffered a hyperextended knee in the regular-season finale against the Bengals in late December.

It's been about a month since Bell suffered the injury, but he said he has been able to work out on the injured knee.

"The knee is close to 100 percent," Bell told NFL Network on Wednesday night. "I'm probably about 85-90 percent, been able to run on it a little bit. So I'm getting back to work out a little."

Bell had a monster year in 2014, rushing for a career-best 1,361 yards. He averaged 4.7 yards per carry. He also had 83 catches for 854 yards and finished with 11 total touchdowns (eight rushing).


Raiders not expected to re-sign RB Darren McFadden


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2015) With expectations sky-high for Latavius Murray in 2015, the Raiders aren't expected to re-sign impending free agent running back Darren McFadden, reports CSNBayArea.com. McFadden, 27, averaged 3.4 yards per carry this season and has not had a good year since 2011.

Oakland also is expected to part ways with 29-year-oold running back Maurice Jones-Drew, saving the team $2.5 million.

Murray, 25, averaged 5.2 yards on his 82 carries and will enter next season as the starter.


Bills RB Anthony Dixon recovering from knee surgery


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2015) Bills running back Anthony Dixon tweeted a photo of himself indicating he underwent surgery to fix a torn meniscus in his knee, reports ESPN.com. Dixon ran for 432 yards and two touchdowns last season, averaging 4.1 yards per carry.

Colts can void RB Trent Richardson's contract


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) The Colts can void running back Trent Richardson's $3.18 million guaranteed salary for 2015 because he was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team, reports CBS Sports' Joel Corry, a former agent who's an expert on player contracts.

Richardson, who missed a walkthrough before the AFC title game, received a two-game suspension from the team, general manager Ryan Grigson confirmed. If Indy chooses to keep Richardson, he'd serve the second game of the suspension next season.

ESPN.com expects the Colts to exercise their option to void Richardson's contract, and the players' union to challenge that move.


Union challenges Goodell on Adrian Peterson's counseling requirement


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) The NFL Players Association filed a legal brief saying Commissioner Roger Goodell's requirement that Adrian Peterson attend counseling was unlawful, reports ESPN.com. The union claims Goodell's disciplinary powers don't extend past suspensions, fines and contract terminations to counseling, the report said.

In November, Goodell suspended Peterson without pay for the rest of the season and said the Vikings running back cannot be reinstated until at least April 15. The move came after Peterson pleaded no contest to recklessly injuring his 4-year-old son last May.

In his letter to Peterson, Goodell set several requirements for reinstatement, including counseling.

"In order to assess your progress going forward, I will establish periodic reviews, the first of which will be on or about April 15, 2015," the commisssioner wrote. "At that time, I will meet with you and your representatives and the NFLPA to review the extent to which you have complied with your program of counseling and therapy and both made and lived up to an affirmative commitment to change such that this conduct will not occur again. A failure to cooperate and follow your plan will result in a lengthier suspension without pay."


Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart looking to build off strong finish


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) Over the last five weeks of the regular season, Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart rushed for 486 yards, second only to Dallas' DeMarco Murray. Stewart followed that up with 123 yards and a touchdown in the playoff win over Arizona.

"I'm really excited for next year," Stewart told the team's website. "You have to find your zone throughout the offseason. It starts now."

Stewart got the chance to be a workhorse when DeAngelo Williams fractured his hand Week 13. ESPN.com reports there's a "strong possibility" the Panthers will release the 31-year-old Williams this offseason, leaving Stewart, 27, as the unquestioned starter.

"It's just part of the journey," Stewart said of the individual success he had toward season's end. "The moment you start focusing on that, you miss out on other things along the journey."


C.J. Spiller expecting 'March Madness' style free agency


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2015) Bills running back C.J. Spiller is getting healthy again. Spiller, who has fully recovered from a shoulder injury, just ended the final season of his contract and is looking at his options for next season.

"Physically, I’m back to 100 percent, back to doing normal activities," Spiller told The Post and Courier on Friday. "As far as football, free agency will start in March, and I’ll get with my people next week and get a game plan together."

Spiller has played five seasons for the Bills, only playing two full years. He ran for 1,244 yards in 2012 with six touchdowns.

"I guess you could say it’ll be March Madness," Spiller said with a smile. "It’ll be a fun March."


NFL warns Marshawn Lynch with 15-yard penalty for obscene gesture


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2015) The NFL has issued a warning to Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch if he decides to make his obscene gesture in the Super Bowl, vice president of officiating Dean Blandino told ESPN Saturday. If Lynch performs his gesture, Seattle will be assessed a 15-yard penalty.

Meaning if Lynch makes his gesture after scoring a touchdown, the kickoff will be from the 20 yard line. Lynch was fined $20,000 for making his gesture after scoring a touchdown in the fourth quarter of the NFC Championship game last week.


Justin Forsett: The Ravens 'expressed that they want me back'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2015) Justin Forsett told reporters following Friday's Pro Bowl practice that the Ravens have expressed interest in bringing him back next season, according to NFL.com. Forsett, who replaced Arian Foster's spot in the exhibition game, noted that he has not engaged in any contract discussions with the team, but remains optimistic of a possible deal in the offseason.

"That is the plan, they gave me my shot, they trusted me and believed in me enough to give me that shot so I'd like to stay," Forsett said. "They expressed that they want me back. I want to be back, so we'll see what happens."

Forsett, 29 is seeking his first multiyear contract of his career after playing for five teams in seven seasons. He broke out for 1,266 rushing yards this season, fifth-most in the NFL, and led all running backs with 5.4 yards per carry.


Seahawks GM on Lynch: 'I kind of love his act'


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) Seahawks general manager John Schneider said little Friday about Marshawn Lynch's future with the franchise.

"I mean, he's under contract next year," Schneider said in an interview with The Seattle Times. "He's a warrior. Goes out there every weekend and lays it on the line. I think you’d be hard-pressed to find a better running back in the National Football League."

Lynch has been rumored to be cut after this season to save money. He is set to make $5 million in base salary in 2015. Schneider also said he has no problem with the way Lynch behaves both on and off the field.

"I kind of love his act," Schneider said.


QB Romo doing his part to convince Cowboys to keep Murray, Bryant


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said Friday he is doing everything in his power to convince owner Jerry Jones to lock up running back DeMarco Murray and Dez Bryant to long-term contracts, per The Dallas Morning News.

“I’m pretty consistently [talking to Jones], and everyone around the building, about bringing them both back,” Romo said on 103.3 [KESN-FM]. “I think everybody understands how great these guys are and how lucky we are to have them.

“Any time you get talented guys where you can put more than two on one side of the ball, you get three, four, if you’re lucky enough to ever get five, it’s one of those things where if you can put a group like that together you can make a run and be very difficult for teams to deal with for years.

“I think that’s what you’re trying to build ultimately is to have sustained success. We have an opportunity to have that.”


Colts' Grigson confirms Richardson was suspended for last two games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) Colts general manager Ryan Grigson confirmed Friday running back Trent Richardson was suspended the final two playoff games. Grigson wouldn't elaborate on why Richardson was suspended and didn't want to get into it because of personal reasons.

Richardson said last week he was not at the walkthrough practice Saturday before Sunday's AFC title game due to a family emergency.

"I had to miss walk-through," Richardson said, per ESPN. "I'm dealing with a very serious family emergency. I'm still at the hospital. I wouldn't purposely just miss walk-through. I wouldn't just purposely turn my back on the team."

According to WTHR's Bob Kravitz earlier this week, Richardson "didn't call" team officials to let them know he'd be absent Saturday.

Richardson, who was the No. 3 pick in the 2012 draft, has been a disappointment offensively since being acquired in a 2013 trade with the Browns. He has totaled just 977 rushing yards and averaged 3.1 yards per carry in 29 games with Indianapolis.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mark Ingram on free agency: Saints 'definitely' want me back


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) With free agency looming, running back Mark Ingram told Katherine Terrell of the Times-Picayune on Thursday that the Saints "definitely" want him back next season.

Ingram totaled 974 rushing yards on 226 carries with nine touchdowns in 13 games for New Orleans in 2014, nearly notching his first career 1,000-yard season. Ingram has 2,426 career rushing yards through his first four seasons with the Saints (50 games). He was also selected to the 2015 Pro Bowl, replacing Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, who is in the Super Bowl.


Report: Marshawn Lynch fined $20K for obscene gesture


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) The NFL fined Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch $20,000 for making an obscene gesture after his touchdown in the NFC Championship Game, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Lynch grabbed his crotch after running for a 24-yard score in the fourth quarter.

In addition, says Schefter, the league is considering fining Lynch "significantly more" than the $50,000 it has fined him each of the past two years for not speaking to the media. Lynch is scheduled to address reporters three times leading up to the Super Bowl.


Seahawks release Super Bowl bye-week practice report


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) The Seahawks didn't take the practice field Wednesday during the team's bye week before Super Bowl XLIX, but they released a hypothetical Wednesday practice report, listing five players as DNP and two as going through a full practice.

Cornerback Richard Sherman, who sprained his elbow in the second half of Sunday's NFC Championship Game, is listed as a full participant along with tackle Justin Britt, putting the pair on track to be available for the title game.

Running back Marshawn Lynch and defensive end Michael Bennett would not have participated in practice due to non-injury-related reasons. Safety Earl Thomas (shoulder), guard J.R. Sweezy (ankle) and long snapper Clint Gresham (neck) would have joined them on the sidelines.

Seattle is a 1-point underdog for next Sunday's Super Bowl against New England.


DeMarco Murray understands Cowboys' tough decision


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray reacted to owner Jerry Jones' comments regarding the tough challenge the team faces in keeping both him and wide receiver Dez Bryant, saying he understands the "business aspect" of the situation, ESPN.com reports.

"Those guys know how I am as a person and I understand that business aspect," Murray said. "I don’t get butt-hurt. I don’t get my feelings hurt. I believe in myself and what I’m capable of doing and whoever it is I’m playing for next year, I know I’m going to make a huge impact."

Murray added that he would love to return to the Cowboys in 2015 but acknowledged that several factors will be considered before he makes a decision on his next contract.

"Obviously I love playing with these guys, love playing for Jerry, love playing for Jason [Garrett]," Murray said. "He’s a helluva coach, a helluva guy. The things I’ve learned from him and [Jason Witten] in the four years I’ve been here, I’m very gracious and appreciative of it. If the chips fall that way, I’m excited and would love to come back. I don’t know what’s going to happen, so we’ll see ... I’ve thought about a lot of things I haven’t told anyone yet, not even my agent or not even my family. You can sit back and look at the pros and cons of many different situations and you think of yourself and think of your family in these situations."

Murray rushed for a league-high 1,845 yards on 392 carries and 13 touchdowns, adding 57 receptions for 416 yards in the passing game. However, the running back also lost five fumbles during the regular season.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) New Raiders offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave told reporters during a conference call Tuesday he likes what he's seen from running back Latavius Murray.

"I have a very positive impression," Musgrave said. "He has tremendous size and speed. He had a super career (at Central Florida). I’m looking forward to getting on the field and finding out what he’s all about and what his strengths are so we can tailor our run game so it’s right up his alley."

Murray totaled 82 carries for 424 yards with two touchdowns in 2014, despite only seeing significant work in the last five weeks of the season.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Colts running back Trent Richardson wasn't active for the AFC Championship Game after missing Saturday's walkthrough for what he called a family emergency. According to WTHR's Bob Kravitz, Richardson "didn't call" team officials to let them know he'd be absent.

NFL reporter Howard Balzer says the Colts suspended Richardson for the game. Regardless, it was the second straight game in which he was inactive.

Richardson is signed for 2015 at nearly $3.2 million, but his future with the team seems tenuous.


Due to contract, Adrian Peterson era in Minny 'may be over'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Both Vikings coach Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman have said they want running back Adrian Peterson back next season, but his run in Minnesota "may be over, and it has more to do with his contract than his legal issues," reports the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Peterson, who turns 30 in two months, carries a cap hit of $15.4 million in 2015. In an interview with ESPN, Peterson "scoffed at the suggestion that he take a pay cut to remain with the Vikings," the paper noted. "Can he and the Vikings find common ground? Or is Peterson ready for a fresh start elsewhere?"

Currently suspended, Peterson can apply for NFL reinstatement on April 15. He pleaded no contest to recklessly injuring his 4-year-old son, a misdemeanor, last May.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Broncos running back C.J. Anderson, who scored 10 touchdowns from Week 10 onward, said he's excited about the zone-blocking scheme new coach Gary Kubiak is bringing, reports the Denver Post. The paper notes that in Kubiak's 11 seasons as an assistant in Denver, a Broncos rusher went over 1,000 yards 10 times.

"I have known about his system for a while, and what he accomplished," Anderson said of Kubiak. "One cut downhill and go get it. It fits me and the offense well. It's always been successful. He knows the team we have and what we can do. I can't wait to get started working with him."

Anderson will enter next season as the team's No. 1 back, though he'll have to fight off challenges from Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman. Anderson averaged 4.7 yards per carry and 9.5 yards per reception and became the ninth Broncos running back to make the Pro Bowl.
