Not so fast...

IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Marion Barber walked out to the practice field in full gear and flashed a thumb's up.

His tight left thigh was feeling fine on Wednesday -- or, at least, good enough to give it a test run.

Barber strained his leg during a 35-yard run late in the fourth quarter of Dallas' loss to the New York Giants on Sunday night that might've been a 42-yard touchdown run had he not come up lame. He said it "felt like a bad cramp" and is hopeful of playing against Carolina on Monday night.

Bernard Pollard finds a home

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-finds-a-home/

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on September 24, 2009 2:17 PM ET

The man who ended Tom Brady's season in 2008 will get to play football in 2009.

Former Chiefs safety Bernard Pollard signed with the Texans Thursday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Pollard was also incidentally responsible for injuring Darren McFadden last year, giving him turf toe when he caught him from behind on a long run in Week Two.

It's a little surprising Pollard stayed on the market so long considering his second round pedigree and experience as a starter in the league. Houston's secondary coach David Gibbs coached him in Kansas City, so the move makes a lot of sense for a team with a shaky back end.

Pollard will likely get put to work right away on special teams.

$20 gas in Chicago

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...as-in-chicago/

Posted by Mike Florio on September 25, 2009 5:34 AM ET

Your eyes are not deceiving you.

In Chicago, gas now costs $20.

Yes, it's true.

If a Bears player farts in the film room, the price is $20.

So says Bears defensive tackle Anthony Adams in a blog for the Chicago Tribune.

The farting fine is one of various penalties the players impose on each other.

But Adams, who weighs 307 pounds, is sufficiently nimble to avoid getting in trouble. "I don't get fines for farting," Adams writes. "I leave outside the meeting room and do my dirt." (The Tribune actually removed the "F" word and replaced it with "passing gas." What a bunch of pussies cowards.)

So who's the worst offender when it comes to farting?

"Mark Anderson might be the worst farter ever," Adams writes. "He takes these protein shakes, so he smells like little babies do."

So be advised, Chicagoans. If you're in a line behind Mark Anderson, it might be a good idea to pull the collar of your shirt up over your nose.

And if you're in a line behind Anthony Adams, be prepared to get out of the way.

SAN DIEGO (AP)—LaDainian Tomlinson(notes) has been ruled out of the San Diego Chargers’ home game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, the second straight game he’ll miss due to a sprained right ankle.

Tomlinson was hurt in a season-opening win at Oakland and missed last Sunday’s home-opening loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

“I don’t have a comment about it. It is what it is,” said Tomlinson, who added that he feels it’s getting better.

We had a small server closet, about 18' x 20' next to the helpdesk. They kept mice/keyboards small stuff on a couple racks as space was a premium. This meant all the helpdesk ladies had the code to the room.

I can't count the times I walked in there to restart a service or check a router a minute after some lady went in to **** their pants.

No real surprise after he missed practice Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, but Browns running back Jamal Lewis didn't make the trip to Baltimore and will not play Sunday.

So Lewis now joins kicker Phil Dawson on the shelf as Cleveland tries to avoid 0-3. In place of Lewis, you can expect to see four-year veteran Jerome Harrison.

So much for the Byron Leftwich era in Tampa. It's already over.

The Buccaneers will start start second-year pro Josh Johnson on Sunday at Washington. Rookie Josh Freeman will move up to No. 2 on the depth chart and Leftwich will be the third quarterback.

They should just go with Freeman and run the wildcat.

Miami Dolphins quarterback Chad Pennington has been initially diagnosed with a torn capsule in his throwing shoulder and the Dolphins expect him to miss the rest of the season, sources familiar with the injury he suffered Sunday told ESPN Senior NFL Analyst Chris Mortensen.

Pennington will seek a second opinion from orthopedic specialist Dr. James Andrews, who has performed two shoulder surgeries on the quarterback.

I'm hearing that the natives are restless with Jim Zorn, but he's safe for at least one more week.

It's not a good thing when you are a coach and people start talking about your job in terms of it being on a week to week basis

Terrell Owens failed to catch a pass for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, ending the third-longest consecutive pass-catching streak in NFL history. Jerry Rice holds the record at 274, followed by Marvin Harrison at 190. Now Owens checks in at 185.

I lost any remaining respect for him when we played them. He was outwitted and was standing on the sidelines with his hat on crooked just chewing his gum.

THat is what I will remember about "Mangenius" when I hear his name.

Gore out "approximately three weeks"

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...y-three-weeks/

Posted by Mike Florio on September 28, 2009 10:10 PM ET

The San Francisco 49ers, eschewing the top-secret approach that plenty of teams apply to matters of injury and rehab, have announced that an MRI performed on running back Frank Gore reveals a "right ankle strain and a right hind foot sprain."

The team says that he'll be out approximately three weeks.

The 49ers also announced that tackle Joe Staley has a right quad contusion, and is day-to-day.

Also, safety Reggie Smith has a right groin strain, and he'll be re-evaluated in two weeks.

Though we appreciate the candor, we're confused by the team's willingness to go beyond that which the injury-reporting rules require. The Niners are compelled to say nothing until Wednesday, and then all that's required is whether and to what extent the players practiced.

Eagles say goodbye to Jeff Garcia

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...o-jeff-garcia/

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on September 29, 2009 3:43 PM ET

The Eagles have only so many roster spots for aging veterans from their 2006 division championship team.

With Jeremiah Trotter added Tuesday, the team announced Tuesday that they have let go of quarterback Jeff Garcia.

Garcia's acquisition made a splash in the news, but he was no longer useful with Donovan McNabb returning to health and Kevin Kolb playing so well. (Michael Vick will also be active on gamedays.)

Now 39, it's possible we have seen the last of Garcia in the NFL. He may have received a chance to play in Oakland this year, but asked for his release before the season, according to coach Tom Cable.

BEREA, Ohio -- Derek Anderson will start at quarterback for the Cleveland Browns on Sunday against Cincinnati.

Coach Eric Mangini has decided to go with Anderson, a Pro Bowler in 2007, over Brady Quinn, who opened the season as Cleveland's starter but was benched at halftime last Sunday in Baltimore.

Garcia says he'd return to Oakland, as the starter

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...s-the-starter/

Posted by Mike Florio on October 2, 2009 8:49 PM ET

Raiders coach Tom Cable hasn't ruled out bringing back quarterback Jeff Garcia. But if Garcia returns, he'll have a few conditions.

Well, one condition.

Garcia will want to start.

In an interview with Chris Myers and Steve Hartman of FOX Sports Radio (via SportsRadioInterviews.com), Garcia said that he is willing to give it another try. As long as Garcia plays and JaMarcus Russell stands on the sidelines.

"I just feel like it's an unfortunate situation when the entire work ethic and the entire goal of the team is really put upon one guy's shoulder who really isn't maybe ready for that situation or ready to take on that sort of responsibility," Garcia said. "And I'm not saying JaMarcus can never be that guy. It's just right now he's still young, he has a lot of growth that needs to take place within himself from a mental standpoint and a physical standpoint. Yeah, the guy's extremely talented. . . . When you put him on the field in a one-on-one workout session he'll make every throw for you, but when it comes down to making things happen in the heat of the battle and rallying the troops around you and making a case for the team, that's where maybe things aren't where they need to be.

"Right now that team is going through those growing pains. And I think I could have helped in a lot of ways had I still been there and had I had that opportunity to step on the field and lead the team and really show what it takes from a standpoint of leadership and work ethic and knowledge of the game. But the way things were working out and with the contract that I had signed, I didn't feel like it was the right situation for me to be there anymore."

Garcia also shared some observations regarding some of his former Oakland teammates not named Russell.

"It was to a point where I felt like guys who walked through those doors that just were there to collect a check and not really interested in putting everything that they had withing themselves on to the football field," Garcia said. "And that was the frustrating thing for me to see. There were a lot of good young guys in that locker room who really want to do whatever it takes to win, but unfortunately it's not everybody.

"In order to compete at this level in this game, everybody needs to be on board, everybody needs to be on the same page, everybody needs to really be accountable and be able to look at each other and have responsibility within themselves that they're going to bring the best that they can have to bring. . . . Not just on Sunday, but every single day during the work week and when you're not seeing that and maybe it's because how things have been for a number of years now out there and they just don't see the hope. . . . I was the guy who was trying to bring in a fresh outlook and a fresh new start. I was trying to really be that type of guy that could help motivate my teammates and help create a certain attitude, a certain mentality and it was just tough to break through to everybody and that's where I found it to be more discouraging than encouraging.

"And for me at this point of my career, being 39 years old, as much as it meant so much to me to return back home and be close to the family and friends and play for a team that I grew up watching as a kid. . . . To see the reality of the situation and realize what I may be up against staying here for the entire year. It hurt me, it broke my heart to do that to step up, but I just felt like it was something I really didn't want to put myself through anymore."

The reaction from any Raiders fan who read these words should match the directive given by George Steinbrenner after George Costanza told him off.

"Hire this man."
