While the NFL Pro Bowl is scheduled to take place this year in Hawaii, it may be the last we see of what’s become a glorified game of flag football, at least according to an interview by commissioner Roger Goodell:
It’s really tough to force competition and after a long season to ask those guys to go out and play at the same level that they play is pretty tough. And I made it very clear last year because I really thought the quality of the game last year was way below standards and if we’re going to play like that we should just eliminate the game.
Despite suffering through a rib injury, 49ers RB Frank Gore practiced on Monday and thinks he’ll be fine for next Monday’s game against the Cardinals.
Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray is hopeful that he’ll be back at practice soon and will be able to play against the Giants in Week 8.
The Browns announced yesterday that they have placed starting left guard Jason Pinkston on injured reserve with a blood clot in his lung, ending Pinkston’s season
Vikings RB Adrian Peterson plans to play until he’s ready to stop.
