The SportsXchange

The Baltimore Ravens confirmed they fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron on Monday.

Cameron will be replaced by quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell, who was hired in February after being let go as the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts.

The Ravens are coming off a 31-28 overtime loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday, the most points they have scored on the road this season. However, they also had two turnovers deep in Washington territory.

Baltimore's offense is ranked 18th in the NFL, and quarterback Joe Flacco recently admitted he didn't know why the Ravens have trended away from their no-huddle offense.

"My charge -- our responsibility as a coaching staff -- is to maximize the opportunities for our team to win, and we can still reach all of our goals for this season," Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said.

The Ravens, 9-4, lead the AFC North Division by two games over the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals and will play host to the Denver Broncos this Sunday in a critical game for playoff position in the AFC.

---Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is considered day-to-day with a mild knee sprain.

Coach Mike Shanahan made the announcement Monday, after Griffin had an MRI on his right knee. He was injured during the Redskins' 31-28 overtime victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

Shanahan said the MRI revealed no structural damage to Griffin's knee. However, Shanahan said he did not know if Griffin would practice Wednesday and did not rule him out of this Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns.

--The Dallas Cowboys are concerned that Dez Bryant, their best wide receiver, could miss the rest of the season with a finger injury, multiple media outlets reported Monday.

Cowboys head coach Hason Garrett told reporters later Monday that Bryant was visiting doctors Monday and said no diagnosis has been made and that no decision has been made regarding Bryant's availability for the next game or any future games.

Earlier reports suggested Bryant might need surgery on his finger, which he injured while making a touchdown reception on Sunday.

---Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said in his weekly radio show that he received treatment for his sore neck on Monday morning and expects to play against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

"Unless something drastic happens, absolutely," Cutler told ESPN 1000 radio.

Cutler was taken out of Sunday's 21-14 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in the fourth quarter with a sore neck. He was hit by defensive end Everson Griffen, who was penalized for unnecessary roughness.

---Buffalo Bills coach Chan Gailey said on his weekly radio show that running back Fred Jackson will miss at least two to three weeks with a leg injury, ESPN.com reported Monday.

Jackson was injured in the fourth quarter of the Bills' 15-12 home loss to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday when he was tackled by two defenders.

---Pittsburgh Steelers starting left guard Willie Colon is done for the season after reinjuring his left knee during Sunday's 34-24 home loss to the San Diego Chargers.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that All-Pro center Maurkice Pouncey will move over to left guard and Doug Legursky will take over at center.

---New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw had an MRI and a "battery of tests" for an injured knee on Monday, according to ESPN New York.

Test results were not immediately available.

Bradshaw was injured during the Giants' 52-27 blowout over the New Orleans Saints. He was in and out of the game before eventually getting replaced by David Wilson.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said in a conference call Monday that he did not want to make assumptions about Bradshaw's status yet.

---Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Jay Ratliff and owner/general manager Jerry Jones got into a locker room confrontation on Dec. 2 in which the two had to be separated, ESPN Dallas reported Monday.

After the Cowboys' victory over the visiting Philadelphia Eagles, Jones tried to convince Ratliff to return from a groin injury. Ratliff yelled back at Jones and teammates intervened. Ratliff then finished dressing and angrily left the locker room.

---The Oakland Raiders reinstated linebacker Rolando McClain to the active roster from the reserve/suspended by club list and promoted cornerback Chimdi Chekwa from the practice squad, the team announced Monday.

Oakland released cornerback Ron Bartell and fullback Owen Schmitt to make room for McClain and Chekwa.

McClain was suspended for two games in late November by coach Dennis Allen for conduct detrimental to the team.

---The San Francisco 49ers announced they have suspended running back Brandon Jacobs for the final three games of the regular season.

The suspension comes several days after Jacobs complained via social media about his lack of playing time.

Jacobs, who was signed by the 49ers in the offseason, was active for just three games this season, and he had just five rushing attempts for seven yards.

--The 49ers' game at the Seattle Seahawks on Dec. 23 has been moved to "Sunday Night Football" as part of the NFL's "flex" scheduling.

The San Diego Chargers' game at the New York Jets, originally scheduled to be the "SNF" broadcast at 8:20 p.m. ET, will move to 1 p.m. on CBS. The New York Giants' game at the Baltimore Ravens will move from 1 p.m. to 4:25 p.m. on FOX.

--Jacksonville Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey was taken to a local hospital on Monday, causing the cancellation of his regular Monday press conference, the Florida Times-Union reported.

Mularkey was examined by the team's training staff before going to Baptist Medical Center for tests.

Mularkey was scheduled to be released from the hospital Monday evening and is expected to return to work on Tuesday.

--At least seven NFL players have turned in their guns to team security officials as a result of the murder-suicide involving Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, Sports Illustrated's Peter King reported on Football Night in America on Sunday.
