Texans trade WR Martin to Patriots


The Patriots have acquired wide receiver Keshawn Martin in a trade with the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported. Wilson did not report the compensation, though such trades are usually for a conditional late-round draft pick.
Martin was active but did not play for the Texans in last weekend’s season opener. A fourth-round pick of the Texans in 2012, Martin has made just two career starts and caught only six passes last season. The Texans drafting Jaelen Strong and adding veteran receiver Cecil Shorts in the offseason paved the way for his exit.

Wow. The whole article is worth a read, but this part made me Shocked :

A 6-foot, 215-pounder from Vienna, Ga., Mumphery took detailed notes in high school while watching game film to improve his understanding of the game.

“We require students to carry notebooks to their lockers in the field house, and Keith would always bring his pen and paper to film sessions and take detailed notes,” said Darryl Silas, Mumphery’s high school coach. “I would go through Keith’s notes and make copies for the other kids. Keith was like a coach. He understood defensive coverages: Cover 2, Cover 3, man-under.

“He acted like an NFL ballplayer in high school. He was the total package academically and athletically. His work habits were second to none. He prided himself that no one would outwork him. It was a joy for me as his head coach because of that tenacity.”

Texans rookie Keith Mumphery is playing with confidence

NFL report: Ex-Spartans Langford, Cousins have big days


It was a good Sunday for a pair of Spartans.
■Rookie Jeremy Langford scored his first NFL touchdown, from a yard out, in the Bears 48-23 loss to the Cardinals in Chicago. Langford had six carries for 21 yards.
■In Washington, an efficient Kirk Cousins avoided turnovers in a 24-10 victory over St. Louis.
“I can’t say enough good things about the way our offensive line played,” said Cousins, who went 23-for-27 for 203 yards and a 4-yard touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon. “I could give you five reasons for us playing so well, and it’d be those five guys.”
Cousins did not throw an interception and was sacked twice.

Texans bring in three new linebackers


The Texans’ linebacking corps will have a different look this weekend.
The team announced several roster moves at the position on Wednesday that leaves them with three new members of the group. The team promoted Max Bullough from their practice squad, signed Brian Peters off the Vikings practice squad and signed Kourtnei Brown off of Tampa’s practice squad.

Lippett at the center of a defense-vs.-offense beef:

Albert Breer wrote:2) Chaos in South Beach: When the dust settles on everything that happened over the course of the last week in Miami, perhaps the biggest remaining question will lie here: How will Ryan Tannehill be affected? As Pro Football Talk detailed earlier in the week, the contract that the fourth-year quarterback signed in the offseason has escape hatches that the club can wiggle through starting after the 2016 season. The GM (Jeff Ireland), head coach (Joe Philbin) and offensive coordinator/old college coach (Mike Sherman) who were around when Tannehill was drafted are all gone, so the franchise is naturally less invested in him now than it was a couple years ago. And the practice incident in London is enough to make you at least wonder about his future in Miami. Here is how -- as I understand it, having communicated with multiple club sources -- things went down. The Dolphins were in drills where defensive players are to shadow offensive guys, but not make plays on the ball. So Tannehill threw one up, missed his target, and rookie DB Tony Lippett picked it off. Tannehill got after Lippett. Some defensive guys took exception with that. On the next play, linebacker Chris McCain ran through a "mock" cut block and broke up a pass. Tannehill's temper flared. McCain responded by saying that someone compensated at Tannehill's level should just get the ball there. And from there, defensive players were going after the ball. Is this the end of the world? No. The Dolphins' situation was combustible in London, given the potential of coaching upheaval (highlighted by defensive players going to now-former coordinator Kevin Coyle asking for scheme changes), and so this wasn't a normal day. Still, there are fair questions to be asked. Tannehill's draft classmate, Russell Wilson, dealt with some of this stuff last year. It'll be interesting to see if Miami's purported franchise QB -- who does seem to have his offensive teammates behind him -- can handle it as well as Seattle's did.

Shield Spartans: Week 5 Update

Before getting into how the Spartans did this week in the NFL I wanted to highlight the efforts of another former Spartan, Jemele Hill. Hill is leading a fundraising drive, on this HATE WEEK, to raise funds to test more than 12,000 rape kits that were found abandoned in a police warehouse in Wayne County in 2009. Hill will face off against Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy who will represent the Wolverines in this week's fundraising drive. Be sure to head to aa490challenge.org to donate and lead the Spartans to a victory in this amazing fundraising effort.

Kirk Cousins now has 27 career interceptions on 635 pass attempts. Robert Griffin has thrown 23 career interceptions on 1,069 passes while Colt McCoy has thrown 23 on 831 passes.

My fantasy football update: There's no real analysis that needs to be added. It's always bad when a player is sent to the hospital during the game. In an absolute best-case scenario, Bell would have an MCL injury, but it's quite possibly more severe than that. Owners need to be doing all they can to secure backup DeAngelo Williams.

Watch Out Pylon! wrote:Langford had a huge drop that would have kept the drive going for the Bears. Could be the #1 RB going forward depending on how bad Forte's injury is.

Rookie fourth-round pick Jeremy Langford replaced Forte in the Bears' backfield for the remainder of the second half.

Langford rushed for 46 yards on 12 attempts but dropped a crucial third-down pass on the Bears' final drive of the game.

"He's going to be a heck of a player for us," Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said. "I told him that one play doesn't win or lose a football game. I don't care what game it is, and that one [drop] didn't win or lose our game."

Bears tight end Martellus Bennett said the locker room is behind Langford.

"He's been doing very well," Bennett said. "He ran the ball well today. He runs the ball hard and he's fast. He's been watching everything that Matt does. Early in your career when you have a guy like Matt in front of you, the best thing you can do is be an apprentice and watch everything he does and carry yourself like he does. Forte is a hell of a back and a hell of a guy. He is somebody you want to model your game after. I think Jeremy is doing a good job. He's always with Matt and asking Matt questions. We have a lot of confidence in Jeremy moving forward.

"There's only one Matt Forte in the NFL, but we don't feel like we lose much when Jeremy is in the game."

Torn MCL for Bell. Going on IR. Does that require reconstructive surgery? I don't know.

MCL shouldn't require surgery. My knee surgery was ACL repair and meniscus repair. MCL should heal on its own regardless of tear grade level.

He probably tore his meniscus, which is outpatient surgery. On crutches for a week or two.

I'd say he sprained his knee/ankle, tore meniscus and MCL. He is one lucky dude to avoid an ACL tear.

It is still a big deal, but the ACL is definitely more career-threatening.
