Rex Ryan said Kyle Williams' knee is not responding to treatment and his season is likely over.

A 6-year-old Redskins fan attended practice Friday: Sean Hachmann from South Riding, Va. Hachmann put on a little show on the sidelines catching passes from family members. He suffers from a rare kidney disease called nephrotic syndrome but thanks to family connections he was able to attend the practice. After a stint playing pro football and hockey he'd like to talk sports for a living. Yes, on ESPN.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Mike Pettine declines to discuss the Johnny Manziel situation. The Browns coach said he has already addressed the situation about trust and accountability being the issues, and declined to comment any further.

ICYMI: Cam Newton won't stop dancing

The Panthers QB rushed for another TD in Thursday's win over the Cowboys. So he busted out some more dance moves.


Full offseason should heal Tony Romo

Stephania Bell explains why the Cowboys QB should be fine for next year despite suffering another clavicle injury.


Romo has hairline fracture; out for year

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed today that QB Tony Romo has a hairline fracture in his left collarbone (via 105.3 The Fan in Dallas). Romo, who missed seven games with a broken left collarbone suffered in Week 2, is done for the season, per ESPN's Todd Archer.


Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Tony Romo's season is over, according to a source. CT scan confirms a break but he will not have surgery.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

The Panthers had a lot of fans waiting for them at the stadium when they returned from Dallas between 12:30 a.m. and 1 a.m. last night. Here is what it meant to LT Michael Oher.


David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers DT Dwan Edwards says it's going to take "us not to play well for somebody to beat us." So there is a belief in the locker room that 16-0 is attainable, but the one-game-at-a-time mentality remains.

Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM

Did not see cornerback Darrelle Revis on field during media portion of Jets practice. Revis (concussion) unlikely to play vs Miami

Tom Brady as you've never seen him

When your dad jumps out of a leaf pile dressed as a turkey to surprise you, it's pretty cool. When your dad is Tom Brady, it's even cooler.


Mike DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

Jaguars rule out LB Dan Skuta (groin) for Sunday vs San Diego. S Craig Loston, RB Bernard Pierce, WR Neal Sterling are doubtful.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

Think the Bengals are tight? Before Friday's walkthrough, righty Andy Dalton throws left-handed while playing catch with Andrew Whitworth. Had some nice spirals, too.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills holding another walkthrough Friday. No helmets. Tyrod Taylor is here; Mario Williams is not.

Norman: Dez's disrespect 'through roof'

Josh Norman said several of the younger Carolina defensive backs came to the locker room during warm-ups before Thursday's game against the Cowboys and told him Dez Bryant had called him out.


SportsCenter @sportscenter

Panthers CB Josh Norman said Cowboys WR Dez Bryant disrespected him. And Norman did not take kindly to that.

Steph Curry cheers on other undefeated

The Warriors star was more than a little pumped on Thanksgiving when Panthers LB Luke Kuechly took one back to the house against the Cowboys and kept Carolina a perfect 11-0.


Jamison Hensley ESPN Staff Writer 

Ravens activate DE Brent Urban (bicep) from IR-Designated for Return list and place RB Justin Forsett (broken arm) on IR. Forsett becomes fifth season-opening starter to end up on IR for Ravens.

Rob Demovsky @RobDemovsky

McCarthy said he did not believe Damarious Randall or Bryan Bulaga had long-term injuries. Will see if they can practice Sunday.
