NFL Likely To Suspend Odell Beckham Jr. One Game

Dec 21, 2015 1:10 PM

Odell Beckham Jr. will likely receive a one-game suspension by the NFL.

Beckham would be suspended for his actions during the Giants' 38-35 loss to the Panthers on Sunday, during which he delivered a deliberate shot to the helmet of Josh Norman after the play was over. Beckham also incurred three personal foul penalties Sunday.

"All the concussion stuff that's going around, they're trying to prevent head-to-head, and if that wasn't the blatant head to head, I don't know what is," Norman told ESPN's Mike & Mike on Monday, also calling Beckham "Two-Face."

Norman said Beckham should have been ejected and that he hoped the league would punish him.

"I hope the league office gets a chance to review the film and see what they can do, because players like that don't deserve to be in the game,'' Norman said. "I mean, it's ridiculous."

Colts Unsure If Andrew Luck Will Play Again In 2015

Dec 14, 2015 3:59 PM

The Indianapolis Colts are unsure if Andrew Luck will play again in 2015 as he heals from a lacerated kidney.

Luck told reporters Monday that his goal is to practice this week but that he doesn't feel 100 percent yet. He said he will play again this season.

Doctors know that Luck cannot risk elevating his heart rate because it would pump more blood through his kidneys, delaying the healing process, according to medical sources.

Luck has been getting regular scans on his lacerated kidney, as often as every fourth day.

Thomas Rawls Out For Season With Broken Ankle, Torn Ligaments

Dec 13, 2015 7:40 PM

Thomas Rawls will miss the remainder of the season with a broken ankle and torn ligaments.

"I think the torn ligaments are really the problem," Pete Carroll said. "I don't think he's going to have to have an operation, from what I understand."

Rawls suffered the injury in the first quarter.

Rawls' season ends with 830 yards on 147 rushes.

The Seattle Seahawks hope Marshawn Lynch will be able to return from his sports hernia injury.

"We'll see how Marshawn does," Carroll said. "He was back in rehabbing with us. We'll see where he is. He's got a chance to get back.

"It's all about getting back in shape and getting right. I don't know what that timetable is at this point. Our trainers can't tell yet. That'll be the next thing we look forward to and see how that works. And in the meantime, we'll figure it out."

Marshawn Lynch Rehabbing 'At Large', Not Close To Returning

Dec 8, 2015 3:51 PM

Marshawn Lynch is two weeks removed from surgery for a sports hernia injury but he's not close to returning to action.

"The report’s that he’s doing really well," Carroll said. "He’s left Philadelphia now, so we’ll see how it goes the next few weeks, see how he comes around. It’s so much to ask him to jump back after three weeks. I don’t even know how we could think that way. This is Week 3 starting up, so we’ll see how it goes."

Lynch underwent surgery in Philadelphia on Nov. 25. 

"I haven’t talked to him, so I’m not sure where we are with that right now," Carroll said. "Right now it’s still rehab."

Asked where Lynch is rehabbing, Carroll said, "I’m not going to report on that. He’s at large. ...You don’t want me to tell anybody where you are, right?"

Eddie Lacy Disciplined In Week 13 For Missing Curfew

Dec 4, 2015 7:03 PM

Eddie Lacy missed curfew Wednesday night in Detroit ahead of the Green Bay Packers' win over the Detroit Lions on Thursday.

Lacy didn't appear in the game until the final seconds of the first quarter and didn't touch the ball after he lost three yards on a pass in the second quarter.

"Leading up the game, frankly, there's an internal football decision that was made," Mike McCarthy said. "That's what resulted in Eddie's [limited] reps."
