According to ESPN’s Stats and Information, the AFC West has been very busy using the shotgun formation. Kansas City has used the shotgun 198 times, which is the fourth most in the NFL. Denver is fifth with 184. The Chargers are averaging 8.3 yards per play using the shotgun.

An NFL spokesman said Tuesday that the league has not made any decision on whether to discipline Oakland coach Tom Cable regarding the assault allegations made by Oakland defensive assistant Randy Hanson. Authorities have declined to pursue charges against Cable. Any NFL discipline would likely be minor.

Kansas City signed receiver/returner Quentin Lawrence to the practice squad. Kansas City cut the sixth-round pick Saturday.

Tennessee claimed punter Brett Kern off waivers from Denver. He was cut Monday as Denver signed veteran Mitch Berger.
