But Washington coach Jay Gruden still classified injured starter Robert Griffin III as a "wild card" possibility following Wednesday's practice.

Ravens get defensive in 29-7 win over Falcons — BALTIMORE - Though Joe Flacco wasn't nearly as hot as the previous week, he was good enough on a day when the Baltimore Ravens' defense put another kind of heat on Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan and moved into first place in the AFC North.

Ravens not guilty of running up the score — BALTIMORE - The Baltimore Ravens weren't guilty of a college-style, run-it-up-for-the-pollsters move when Joe Flacco threw for a long touchdown with time running down in a 29-7 win over the Atlanta Falcons. At first glance, maybe it looked that way Sunday. Falcons cornerback Josh Wilson gestured toward the Baltimore sideline after the play.

NFL Europe doesn't count in proposed concussion deal — Players from the United States once crossed the ocean to play for teams in NFL Europe.

Dave Duerson's lawyer among those unhappy with proposed NFL concussion settlement — Late Chicago Bears safety Dave Duerson was diagnosed with the brain disease CTE following his 2011 suicide.

NFL concussion suit: Belcher's daughter opted in — Former NFL players have until Tuesday to decide whether to opt out or take part in a tentative settlement of concussion suits against the league.

Eagles send their own message by blanking Giants — PHILADELPHIA - Needing a win to keep pace with the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East, the Philadelphia Eagles used a breakout game by running back LeSean McCoy and shutdown defense to defeat the New York Giants 27-0 Sunday night.

Giants' Victory Cruz leaves with torn patellar tendon — PHILADELPHIA - New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz was carted off the field in the third quarter of Sunday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles with what the team announced was a torn patellar tendon.

Eagles waiting for offense to regain 2013 form — PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy and quarterback Nick Foles have yet to recreate their 2013 production. The offense also is trying to match the scoring punch of the team's own defense and special teams.
