NFL investigating domestic violence accusation against line judge

The NFL is investigating an accusation of domestic violence against line judge Carl Johnson, who was once the league’s vice president of officiating.

“The matter is under review under of the league’s personal conduct policy,” a league spokesman said Tuesday.

All league employees are subject to discipline under the league’s domestic violence policy, which establishes a six-game suspension for a first offense. Mitigating circumstances can increase or decrease that game total.

Bolles left Sports Authority Field at Mile High after the Broncos’ 42-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday with a walking boot on his left foot/ankle and using crutches.

Bolles suffered the injury with 8 minutes, 40 seconds left in the third quarter during a 5-yard run by Jamaal Charles.

Game video showed that Cowboys defensive tackle Brian Price fell on Bolles’ leg during the play, as the Broncos were in the 13th play of a 15-play touchdown drive. Donald Stephenson initially replaced Bolles to close out the possession, but Allen Barbre finished out the remainder of the game at left tackle after the touchdown drive.

Bolles stayed down on the ground following the play as the Broncos’ medical staff examined the leg. An emotional Bolles was taken to the locker room on a cart and raised his arms to acknowledge the crowd.

Bolles was the Broncos’ first-round pick in this past April’s draft and had been working with the starters since training camp opened in July. He played every snap in the team’s opening week win over the Los Angeles Chargers and had played every snap until his injury Sunday.

The Broncos rushed for 178 yards in the game, including 118 yards rushing from C.J. Anderson.

Rams expect Aaron Donald to make season debut Sunday vs. Redskins

Aaron Donald finally rejoined his Los Angeles Rams teammates on Monday, one day after their 46-9, season-opening drubbing of the Indianapolis Colts. Donald, who officially ended his 44-day holdout by taking his physical on Saturday, took part in conditioning drills and sat in on meetings, just like everybody else.

“Some of the close losses last season, we were terrible,” he said after the game, chuckling. “We were just — it was kind of just bad football, some of those close losses. We’re there, we’re there, we’re there, and there was some critical error.”

Oh, and Adrian Peterson returns to Minnesota after being released by the only NFL team he’d ever known last spring.

Matthews doesn’t know whether he will pursue an acting career once his playing days are over. But as he enters his ninth season, the 31-year-old realizes he must avoid injury and perform at a high level to mitigate the possibility of being cut in the 2018 offseason — such a move would clear $10.8 million in salary-cap space — and have a chance at finalizing his NFL film reel playing for just one team.

“This is a conversation I’ve had with numerous people … especially getting up there to Year Nine now when most people can retire and say they’ve had a great career,” Matthews said.

“To do it in Green Bay would be tremendous because you have one team you are always associated with. To stay with one team and have a level of success that we’ve had would be amazing. I’m hoping to have a good year and get re-upped.”

“It’s just what you love to do and, you know, nobody ever wants that taken away from them, especially with the amount of work we’ve been putting in. The chemistry and everything, we were just rolling. We were in a good place. That’s life, though. Life happens. You get set back. It’s really how you come back from that, how you handle adversity. This is nothing that I won’t overcome.”

Engineers to inspect Dolphins stadium after Hurricane Irma

Structural engineers will inspect the Miami Dolphins’ stadium after a possible tornado was reported in the area during Hurricane Irma, according to multiple reports.

The team’s complex in Davie, Florida, appears to be fine in the wake of the storm.

“All we have is a visual inspection by camera right now,” a team source told The Miami Herald, which first reported the news. “We think the stadium may have [experienced] some tornado activity based on radar tracking.”

Hard Rock Stadium was constructed to survive winds from storms as strong as a Category 4 hurricane. By the time Hurricane Irma hit the South Florida area, it wasn’t as strong as that.

Marlins Park also was being assessed. Photos posted on social media showed possible storm damage to the outer facade of the retractable roof.

The Dolphins will open their season Sunday at the Los Angeles Chargers. The Dolphins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had been scheduled to open their seasons this past Sunday, but that game was postponed until Nov. 19 because of Irma.

Chicago’s ground game, led by two players with 15 games of NFL experience between them, was a revelation. 2016 Pro Bowler Jordan Howard and 2017 fourth-round pick Tarik Cohen combined for 118 rushing yards and a touchdown on only 18 carries. Cohen also emerged as the team’s top receiver on a roster devoid of true wideout talent — he had eight receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown.

Oh, and he trucked Jurrell Casey like it was nothing. Casey stands at 6’1, 305 pounds, and Lynch made him look like he was half that size.

Rams sign Johnny Hekker to two-year extension, $10M guaranteed

our more years was apparently not enough for Johnny Hekker, quite possibly the game’s best punter.

The Los Angeles Rams tacked on two additional years to Hekker’s contract Monday, keeping him with the team through the 2022 season.

The Colts, as they’ve been saying for the past couple of months, still don’t have a set date on when Luck will play. He hasn’t played since Week 17 of last season because of January right shoulder surgery. Pagano said he doesn’t know whether Luck, who was taken off the physically unable to perform list on Sept. 2, will practice this week.

The Colts now have to figure out who will start at quarterback against the Cardinals. Scott Tolzien, who had been working with the first team since April, was benched in favor of Jacoby Brissett in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 46-9 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Tolzien had two interceptions returned for touchdowns and nearly was intercepted a third time. He finished the game 9-of-18 for 128 yards, 2 interceptions and was sacked 4 times. Brissett was 2-of-3 for 51 yards while leading the Colts to their only touchdown of the game in his limited playing time.images (4)

Linebacker Mason Foster said he was surprised by the news.

“Definitely. He’s a great player, a great person,” Foster said. “People have lives outside of football, and sometimes you have to handle that first. Hopefully he gets that resolved and comes back and helps us win games this year. I’ll try to talk to him later on, tell him I’m praying for him, but I’m going straight to the iPad and watching Philly.”

“You never know what’s in anyone’s life, so you make sure that’s fine first and foremost before you get back to your job,” Redskins cornerback Josh Norman said.

Kirk Cousins isn’t on the level of a Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers, but he threw for almost 5,000 yards last season and had 25 touchdowns against 12 interceptions. Cousins is likely to be the next signal caller to reset the quarterback market.

Cousins is in the second season of playing under the franchise tag for the Washington NFL team, and he’s making over $23 million this year. Barring any significant regression, he’ll hit free agency as the top quarterback option on the market.

He has been linked to the San Francisco 49ers and his former offensive coordinator, Kyle Shanahan, who coaxed an MVP-level performance out of Matt Ryan as the Falcons’ offensive coordinator in 2016. The Niners should have a good amount of cap space to work with next season and can just back a Brinks truck up for Cousins if a bidding war ensues, and it probably will.
