Dez could be done
IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys might be without wide receiver Dez Bryant for their playoff push.
Bryant injured his left index finger in an emotional 20-19 victory over Cincinnati on Sunday, one day after practice squad linebacker Jerry Brown was killed in a car accident.
Dallas coach Jason Garrett said Monday Bryant was still being evaluated. The Cowboys play Pittsburgh at home Sunday in a battle of 7-6 teams trying to keep playoff hopes alive.
Cam Cameron canned
OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Cam Cameron was fired Monday as offensive co-ordinator of the Baltimore Ravens, who have lost two straight and are still striving for consistency in the running and passing game.
Cameron ran the Baltimore offence since the start of the 2008 season for coach John Harbaugh. Since that time, the Ravens' attack has repeatedly taken a back seat to the team's defence, and this year the offence ranks 18th with 344.4 yards per game.
Jim Caldwell, who was hired as quarterbacks coach before the season, will assume Cameron's duties.
49ers suspend Jacobs
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- The San Francisco 49ers have suspended running back Brandon Jacobs for the final three games following a series of posts on social media sites addressing his lack of playing time, including one during the weekend saying he was "on this team rotting away."
Jim Harbaugh, 49ers coach, declined to address Jacobs' comments Monday, even when asked whether Jacobs is still on the team.
