Steelers WR Antonio Brown not happy with overturned TD
Brown tweeted a photo that appeared to show both of his feet were inbounds. Brown posted a "derogatory remark" with the photo, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Brown said he doesn't regret making the comment and will accept any punishment the NFL might hand out.
"When you’re passionate about something, you speak your mind," Brown said Tuesday night on his radio show on 970 ESPN. “Touchdowns are hard to come by in the NFL. That would have given us a two-touchdown lead and made it harder for [the Texans]."
Giants WR Corey Washington still learning route tree
"He's learning to run an entire route tree," receivers coach Sean Ryan told The Star-Ledger. "There is growing to be done with Corey. He works on his releases, his routes, his top of the breaks, getting out of those -- things he needs to improve on. That is where he is right now. He's a work in progress."
Titans' Bernard Pollard confident in quick recovery from Achilles injury
"Like I've told them, it's not going to take me six-to-eight. It's really not," Pollard said Tuesday. "More like two-to-three (months) … I want to be back. I want to be smart about coming back as well. I throw numbers out there or whatever, but it's going to be quick."
Dolphins punter Brandon Fields not having a strong season
"Early on we got the punt blocked in Buffalo," Philbin said. "He just hasn’t looked as comfortable quite yet back there, as he has in the two years that I’ve been here, the previous two years. I’m confident he’ll work his way through it and he’ll get back to being the outstanding punter that we all know.
"For his standards, it’s not quite what we’re used to. I think he would acknowledge that, but I’m very, very confident that he’ll get back to that soon."
Philbin calls out Caleb Sturgis during team meeting for missing FGs
"We were in the team meeting today and we said we’ve got to make those field goals," Philbin said. "We kind of went through that sequence where we took a sack and knocked ourselves back, and made the field goal more difficult. That being said, I said to him right there in the whole team meeting, we’ve got to make those field goals. He knows that and I suspect that he will work at it and he’ll get better at it."
Sturgis is connecting on 78.6 percent of his field goals (11 of 14) after converting at a 76.5 percent rate (26 of 34) as a rookie in 2013.

Chiefs' Jamaal Charles admits he was a little shaken up by hard hit
Though, Charles admitted during a radio interview with ESPN that maybe he was dealing with symptoms of a concussion.
"It definitely hurt," Charles said, per ProFootballTalk.com. "It’s like, I woke up -- I mean, like, a couple plays later I was seeing light bulbs, like, light bulbs around my eyes, and I was trying to catch them. But I was in the game so I was like, ‘Alright, let’s get the ball and run again.'"
Charles added he tried to avoid going through the league's concussion protocol. Charles left a Chiefs' playoff game in January due to a concussion.
"I didn’t have a concussion, but it definitely was a hit that shocked me," he said. "But I don’t think I had to go through the concussion protocols and all that. I didn’t want to go through that again because of what happened in the playoffs. I was definitely fine, I think I came out pretty good."
