"There's nothing wrong with my language, it's how it's portrayed," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said of Hard Knocks. "They make you look like you swear a lot. I don't really swearing that much." Sure, coach. (The comment, said in jest, drew raucous laughter from assembled media)

In surprising move, Bills cut jackson

RB Fred Jackson was released by Buffalo today. His time in the Bills' backfield dates back to 2007, but his last 1,000-yard rushing season was 2009. At 34, he was the oldest running back in the NFL.

Found it interesting Colbert mentioned Bryant put the Steelers in a tough situation "to begin the year." Makes sure to point out bad timing

After Texans CB Charles James scored the touchdown that got called back against the Saints, several teammates ran onto the field to celebrate with him. The official warned coach Bill O'Brien that wasn't allowed. O'Brien said today, smiling, that he replied: "it's 3 minutes to go in a preseason game, and they're celebrating because they love the guy. You should've seen the 12 men on the field you they had that you missed about four plays ago." He added at the podium, "I'll probably get fined for that."

Redskins' reaction to QB decision

ESPN's John Keim: "I don't think it was a total shock. I just think for guys that have been around here for a while, it gets a little bit old to keep answering these same questions every year."

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert on Monday issued a statement on Martavis Bryant's suspension: "We are disappointed in Martavis’ actions that has led to his four-game suspension. It is a disappointment to our entire organization as well as our fans, but we will continue to support Martavis during his suspension. It is very unfortunate his actions have put our team in this situation to begin the year, but we are confident he will learn from his mistake and return in excellent shape in Week 5."

RG III can't catch a break

Last season, Robert Griffin III struggled with his footwork. Now he's struggling with his health. His future in Washington is uncertain, but one thing is clear. "The RG III experiment is running out of time," John Clayton says.

Rex Ryan: "I expect to keep three quarterbacks on the roster. That's a true statement."

Field Yates @FieldYates

Washington (Cousins) & Buffalo (Taylor) starting QB's officially announced...Still awaiting on the most compelling situation: Ohio State.

Bills name Tyrod Taylor Week 1 starter

Ryan Clark says Rex Ryan's decision to start Taylor is about potential: “You know what you have with those other guys. … Here’s the guy with the most upside.”


Mike Rodak @mikerodak

Rex Ryan said he had a "change of heart" about announcing Taylor. Doesn't want players bombarded with questions if he kept it quiet.
