NFL news: Around the league in 32 plays

1 of 3

With another week under our belt, it’s time to see what happened in the world of NFL news.  As we go into the season, there will be a lot of transactions over the course of the week.  In an effort to keep my sanity, my job, and my marriage all in tact, I won’t be covering all of them.  I will be sure to cover all of the big stories coming your way, and will do my best to track any former Chiefs.

So here’s what happened this week…

Arizona Cardinals: Starting running back Andre Ellington has gone down with a PCL injury.  This means that veteran Chris Johnson will get another shot at resurrecting his career.

Atlanta Falcons:  The Falcons have signed former superstar offensive tackle Jake Long.  Long has had trouble getting an offer due to his long injury history.

Baltimore Ravens:  The Ravens have lost superstar linebacker Terrell Suggs for the rest of the year due to a torn Achilles.  The veteran star has been the emotional leader of the team since Ray Lewis retired.  To replace Suggs, the Ravens have signed Jason Babin.

Buffalo Bills:  Linebacker IK Enemkpali has been suspended for breaking the jaw of former teammate Geno Smith.  However, the Bills have still promoted him to the 53 man roster out of fear that someone will claim him anyways.  To correspond with defensive lineman Marcel Dareus coming off of suspension, the Bills have released running back Bryce Brown.

Carolina Panthers:  The Panthers signed former Chiefs center Eric Kush to their practice squad.

  • Chiefs’ take: It’s a significant fall for Kush who had, at one point, been the slated starter for the Chiefs.

Cincinnati Bengals:  The Bengals have signed wide receiver AJ Green to an extension.  The move has been long-expected given the new contracts for several other big name wide receivers this year.
