A.J. Green questionable for Sunday

CINCINNATI -- All signs point to Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green playing in his first game in a month except for one. The Cincinnati Bengals' injury report. On it, he was listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The fourth-year receiver practiced all this week in limited participation as he tries returning from the injury to his right big toe that has been problematic all season. He has missed the past three games because of it.

Dexter McCluster not the X factor the Titans advertized

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Brought to the Tennessee Titans with a three-year, $9 million with $4.5 million guaranteed, Dexter McCluster was supposed to be an X factor for the offense. Halfway through his first season, McCluster’s role remains hazy. The versatile running back has played just 28 percent of the offensive snaps, has touched the ball a grand total of 40 times, and has accounted for only eight percent of the team’s yardage. "A lot of it is because we haven’t been very good on third down, sustaining drives and giving us more opportunities," coach Ken Whisenhunt said.

Corey Liuget returns to Miami, focused on satisfying immense potential

SAN DIEGO -- As part of his evolution as a man, Corey Liuget travelled with girlfriend Faven to Ethiopia, Dubai, Costa Rica and the Bahamas during the offseason in an effort to experience new things. “It was an awesome trip,” Liuget. “All of those places have different cultures, different meanings and the people are great. I never dreamed I would be able to do those things growing up as a kid. And now that I have the finances to do it, why not take the time to do it before my career is over?

Cowboys prepping for Cardinals' blitzing

IRVING, Texas – One game does not make a trend, but the Dallas Cowboys know the Arizona Cardinals will try to emulate what the Washington Redskins did against them Monday. Passing game coordinator Scott Linehan, however, did not like the suggestion that the Cowboys were exposed by Washington. The Cowboys were able to beat the St. Louis Rams and New Orleans Saints when they brought pressure. “We’ve defeated the blitz all year,” Linehan said.

Patriots feel like the Broncos' fourth divisional opponent

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – In the last three seasons, the Denver Broncos have faced their longtime AFC West rival Kansas City Chiefs six times. Simple NFL math, really: Division foe, usually two matchups a season. In 2013, the Broncos faced the San Diego Chargers three times, with the two AFC West meetings in the regular season to go with last January’s divisional round playoff game. Denver Broncos players and coaches say playing the New England Patriots offers the same we-know-them, they-know-us headaches an AFC West team would bring.

Chiefs finding defensive coordinator Sutton was worth the wait

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- If Bob Sutton had never become the defensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs, it wasn’t going to be for a lack of trying. When Herm Edwards was head coach of the Chiefs, he unsuccessfully tried to hire Sutton away from the New York Jets. Andy Reid made it his annual quest when he coached the Philadelphia Eagles to make Sutton a part of his staff. “Andy Reid tried to get him every single year,’’ Jets coach Rex Ryan said.

Greg Robinson back home at left tackle

EARTH CITY, Mo. -- As Greg Robinson attempted to adjust to playing left guard for the first time during the preseason, he often found himself bouncing back and forth between his new position and his old one. Robinson was less than a year removed from playing left tackle, the only position he's ever really known, for SEC champion Auburn. Robinson was so dominant on the edge that the St. Louis Rams made him the No. 2 overall pick. With Jake Long already entrenched at left tackle, the Rams had long-term plans for Robinson to eventually take over at left tackle while contributing right away at guard.

Inside Slant: Even pre-snap movement can be an official judgment call

For all Inside Slant posts, including the weekly Officiating Report, follow this link. It makes sense for NFL teams to track how the league's 17 officiating crews call subjective or judgment-based penalties such as offensive holding and pass interference, and most do. It could help a play-caller, for instance, to know whether his pass protection will be compromised by a liberal view of holding. What you might not realize, however, is that the frequency of presumably more-straightforward penalties still varies significantly among crews.
