NFL roundup: Vick may be done for the season

The SportsXchange

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick may have played his last game of the season.

Coach Andy Reid said during his Monday press conference that quarterback Michael Vick has a "pretty significant concussion."

A source told Yahoo! Sports that "it's a pretty strong bet" Vick will be rested for the remainder of regular season.

Vick sustained the concussion during Sunday's 38-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, which dropped the Eagles to 3-6. Reid did not rule Vick out from playing this week's game against the Washington Redskins, but he must undergo the league's mandated testing protocol before he can play.

ESPN.com reported that rookie Nick Foles will start this week's game, and Yahoo! Sports also reported that Reid will use the rest of the season to evaluate Foles as a starter as a way for Reid to save his own job.

---Outgoing Cleveland Browns team president Mike Holmgren denied a report that he has already shown interest in potentially coaching the Dallas Cowboys.

"I don't know how any of that stuff gets started," Holmgren told reporters at the Browns' headquarters Monday, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported on "The NFL Today" pre-game show Sunday that Holmgren has "serious interest" in coaching the Cowboys should Jason Garrett be fired.

---San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said in his weekly press conference Monday that quarterback Alex Smith is doing well a day after sustaining a concussion against the St. Louis Rams.

Harbaugh said per CSN Bay Area that Smith had a good night's sleep and is visiting a neurologist Monday afternoon.

If Smith cannot play Nov. 19 against the Chicago Bears, Colin Kaepernick will make his first NFL start. Kaepernick filled in for Smith after he left the 49ers' 24-24 tie against the Rams on Sunday.

--Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith told reporters on Monday that Jay Cutler is "feeling a lot better today" after sustaining a concussion in Monday night's 13-6 loss to Houston, but Smith did not know whether Cutler would play in next Monday's game against the 49ers.

Cutler must be cleared by an independent neurologist in order to play next Monday night.

Jason Campbell would start if Cutler is unable to play Monday night.

---The Chicago Bears are expected to sign quarterback Josh McCown with Jay Cutler's status in doubt because of a concussion, ESPN Chicago reported Monday.

---Buffalo Bills coach Chan Gailey said on radio station WGR on Monday that running back Fred Jackson is being tested for concussion-like symptoms.

It is not known if Jackson will be ready for Thursday's game against the Miami Dolphins.

Jackson was injured late during the 37-31 loss to the Patriots while being tackled by linebacker Brandon Spikes.

---Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Quincy Black is dealing with complications with his left arm as a result of the head and neck trauma incurred in a head-on collision with Chargers running back Ryan Mathews in the third quarter of Sunday's game.

Black was taken from the field on a stretcher. Coach Greg Schiano said Black "overall is going to be OK" but said the injury is serious, and is causing complications with Black's left arm.

Black could be placed on injured reserve with the Buccaneers dealing with multiple injuries on the defensive side of the ball.

---Right tackle Bryan Bulaga was placed on injured reserve by the Green Bay Packers with a hip injury suffered in the team's Week 9 victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

Bulaga met with a specialist over the team's bye last week and the team made the decision Monday to place him on IR.

The Packers also signed linebacker Vic So'oto on Monday. He played in seven games for Green Bay in 2011 and appeared in four games for the Oakland Raiders this season.

---New York Giants rookie defensive tackle Markus Kuhn is out for the rest of the year with a torn ACL, the New York Daily News reported Monday.

Kuhn was carted off the field during the fourth quarter of the Giants' 31-6 loss against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

--New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin said in the New York Daily News that running back Ahmad Bradshaw will "probably have every test known to man" on Tuesday for his various injuries.

The Giants, who have a bye this week, are sending the injured players, including Bradshaw, to the hospital for MRIs and X-rays.

Bradshaw played in just 23 of the Giants' 73 offensive plays in Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals because of a foot injury and another undisclosed injury believed to be a hand.

---Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has been ruled out for this Sunday's game against the Houston Texans because of a lingering foot injury, the Florida Times-Union reported Monday.

Jones-Drew has missed three games because of the injury. Jacksonville's offense has struggled without him, getting outscored 82-39 over that span.

---The Jacksonville Jaguars signed linebacker Greg Jones and released wide receiver Anthony Armstrong on Monday, the team announced.

---Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey will be placed on injured reserve Monday, according to the Kansas City Star.

Dorsey injured a calf muscle last week against the San Diego Chargers. It was the same injury that cost him four games earlier in the season.

Not only is he gone for the season, he may have played his final game with the Chiefs as he is in the last season of his contract.

---An MRI exam taken on Denver Broncos linebacker Elvis Dumervil revealed no tear on his left shoulder, the Denver Post reported Monday.

Dumervil is questionable to play against the San Diego Chargers this Sunday.

---Head coach Ron Rivera and the struggling Carolina Panthers made another change in off-field personnel Monday, firing special teams coordinator Brian Murphy over what Rivera said were "philosophical differences."

The Denver Broncos flipped momentum in Sunday's win at Carolina with a 76-yard punt return by Trindon Holliday for a touchdown. The ensuing controversy over when Holliday flipped the ball into the air -- replays showed it was before he crossed the goal line -- isn't finished. Rivera said he's been in contact with the league for "some kind of explanation."

---The Indianapolis Colts announced several roster moves Monday, including activating nose tackle Josh Chapman from the reserve/non-football injury list.

Indianapolis also promoted tight end Kyle Miller from the practice squad and placed defensive tackle Drake Nevis and cornerback Jerraud Powers on injured reserve.

---Defensive lineman Alameda Ta'amu was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Ta'amu, a fourth-round pick out of the University of Washington in April, was charged with drunken driving and attempting to elude police during a car chase Oct. 14.

Wide receiver David Gilreath was signed by the Steelers off their practice squad, where he spent the first nine weeks of the season. Antonio Brown was ruled out of Monday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
