Andre Johnson To Have Ankle Surgery

Dec 31, 2010 4:46 PM

The Texans won't have Andre Johnson against the Jaguars on Sunday. Johnson will have arthroscopic surgery on his right ankle next week. He sprained the ankle in Week 2 and the injury has never healed. "The biggest thing was just being smart about the situation," Johnson said. "The best thing they felt was for me not to be out there to have something else bad happen, or me to re-injure the ankle, like I've been doing the whole season."

Favre Still Hasn't Passed Concussion Test

Dec 31, 2010 8:54 AM

Brett Favre still hasn't passed his concussion test and his status for Minnesota's season finale remains in doubt. Favre hasn't been able to play in two of the team's last three games. "We'd love to see him play," interim coach Leslie Frazier said. "There's no question about that." Friday will likely be the cutoff date for Favre if he isn't able to pass the required tests.

Tolbert Leaves Game On Stretcher

Dec 26, 2010 7:38 PM

Chargers running back Mike Tolbert was taken off the field on a stretcher Sunday during the team's disappointing loss to the Bengals. Tolbert took a handoff, put his head down and ran into safety Reggie Nelson's chest in the first quarter on Sunday. He fumbled and remained face-down on the field, motionless, when the play ended. Doctors carefully rolled him over onto a backboard, strapped him down and wheeled him off the field. Tolbert raised his right forearm and gave a thumbs-up to the crowd cheering him.
