PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) He's not letting it go.

Dolphins' Cutler ruled out vs. Patriots

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) Miami Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler has been ruled out of Sunday's game at New England because of a concussion, and backup Matt Moore will make his second start of the season.

Jones backs off Goodell, backs Garrett

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) As soon as Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed he is backing off a threat of legal action over the future of Commissioner Roger Goodell, the focus turned to the performance of coach Jason Garrett and his staff.

Jaguars CB Ramsey says he's out Sunday

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey says he will not play Sunday against Arizona.

Ramsey was added to the team's injury report Friday after jamming his hand on a pass play in practice. He was limited in practice and is listed as questionable for Jaguars matchup against the Cardinals.

Bills not ruling out WR Benjamin

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott isn't ruling out Kelvin Benjamin from playing at Kansas City on Sunday even though the receiver has not practiced since hurting his right knee last weekend.

Chiefs' Ford, Smith out, Revis may play

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Chiefs linebackers Dee Ford and Terrance Smith have been ruled out for Sunday's game against Buffalo, while newly signed cornerback Darrelle Revis could be active for the first time this season.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said after Friday's final practice that Revis, who signed a two-year deal on Wednesday, moved around well in practice. Reid said it was clear the seven-time Pro Bowl pick has been out for a while, but "he looked good moving around."


Packers hope CB King ready vs. Steelers

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Kevin King has shouldered a heavy load in Green Bay's secondary. The Packers are hoping he's ready to handle some more this weekend.

The health of the rookie cornerback's left shoulder will determine how much of a role he'll play in Sunday night's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. King, whose issues date to a torn labrum during his freshman year at the University of Washington, was inactive for last week's loss to Baltimore.


Browns' Gordon feels forgiven in return

BEREA, Ohio (AP) As he builds his body into football shape and develops trust with his teammates, Josh Gordon feels forgiven.

Since returning to the Browns following an indefinite drug suspension by the NFL for numerous abuse violations, Gordon doesn't sense any resentment or anger directed at him.


Fitzgerald, Wentz, others hit with fines

NEW YORK (AP) Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald was fined $24,309 by the NFL on Friday for an illegal crackback block against the Houston Texans last Sunday.

Vikings win 7th straight, North lead 3

DETROIT (AP) Case Keenum stood in the pocket to take a hit, dipped his right shoulder to slip out of a sack and shuffled his feet in the pocket to give his receivers more time to get open.

Looking like a savvy winner, instead of a journeyman, he picked apart Detroit's defense with his arm and made plays with his legs to help the Minnesota Vikings beat the Lions 30-23 Thursday.
