Bengals have two WRs inactive vs. Texans

HOUSTON -- As they welcome running back Giovani Bernard back to the fold, the Cincinnati Bengals will be down two receivers on Sunday against the Houston Texans. Dane Sanzenbacher and Greg Little were healthy scratches before the game at NRG Stadium, joining the likes of injured defenders Vontaze Burfict and Margus Hunt. On Friday, coach Marvin Lewis said Burfict was "progressing" from arthroscopic knee injury he had three weeks ago. After he went through some conditioning and rehab exercises on the side of Bengals practices earlier in the week, Burfict seemed to show signs of possibly returning next week at Tampa Bay.

Saints' Patrick Robinson again showing his resilience

METAIRIE, La. -- Say this for New Orleans Saints cornerback Patrick Robinson: He’s resilient. The former first-round draft pick’s entire career has been a non-stop roller-coaster ride because of his highs and lows on the field and injury issues off the field. But Robinson has continued to battle back each time -- something he has again been doing quietly over the past month after losing his starting job early in the year. And this week, Robinson was honored by teammates as the 2014 recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award for the way he came back from the major knee injury he suffered last year.
