The filing, which demands an arbitration hearing on the matter, says the NFL and its owners "have colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick's leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness

It’s been a tale of two teams for the Cincinnati Bengals. The first one looked like a disaster that couldn’t reach the end zone amid an 0-2 start. Then came a much-needed change in replacing Ken Zampese with Bill Lazor as offensive coordinator. That’s led to a much different team over the last three weeks, one that is an overtime loss in Green Bay away from being 3-0. All told, the Bengals will come out of the bye week with a 2-3 record and plenty of reason to think they’ll have a good showing the rest of the season. Will that translate into a winning season? Could it even result in a playoff berth? There’s plenty of reasons to think at least a winning season is possible with games versus the

The Indianapolis Colts are still without Andrew Luck after the quarterback underwent surgery in January. Recently acquired passer Jacoby Brissett has played well as the team’s starter in Luck’s place, but the Colts are undeniably worse without the No. 1 pick in the 2012 NFL draft on the field. His absence has been somewhat of a mystery. While Luck’s surgery was described by Colts owner Jim Irsay as an outpatient procedure that wouldn’t threaten the 2017 regular season, it has clearly become a more significant issue than that.
