QuoteMichael Vick has had many firsts during his NFL career, but he did something new even for him last Sunday. According to a Jets player, Vick threw a pass so hard he broke the finger of a teammate.
Vick entered the game midway through the first quarter for starter Geno Smith. Head coach Rex Ryan decided to go with the veteran Vick again on Sunday.
When asked about the transition to Vick as their starter, defensive end Sheldon Richardson said he's noticed the 34-year-old quarterback's unique skill set in practice, including his legendary arm. It was that cannon that caused an injury to tight end Jeff Cumberland last Sunday.
"I think he still got it. Why? He can fire the football that's why," Richardson said. "He broke Jeff's finger on a pass in the last game. He's still got it."
On Wednesday, Cumberland was sporting green tape on the middle finger of his left hand. He denied that his finger was broken, saying it was just dinged up.
"I was trying to grab the ball," Cumberland said. "Right place, right time."
Cumberland is expected to play on Sunday despite the finger injury. He was listed on the injury report, but was a full participant in practice Wednesday.
By all accounts, Vick has looked good in practice this week.
"Itís a lot of responsibility for any quarterback in this league. I think when you have a chance to go out and show and prove, I think youíve got to take advantage of the opportunity," Vick said on Wednesday. "They donít come around too often as Iíve seen for the last year and a half not being the starter. So just having this chance to become a starter again is almost like a dream come true. Itís just something that I want to take full advantage of and go out and have fun with my teammates and try to get a win. And thatís the challenge. Itís going to be tough on the road in Kansas City. But, what else would you want? You wouldnít want it any other way."
The future may not be so bright for Smith, whose struggles this year are as bad as last season. It will be the first time in his NFL career Smith will not be the starter.
"He's in a little struggle right now. It's still early but it's not the end of the world," Richardson said. "No one wants to be benched, no one wants to be taken off their starting role and be put into a backup role, no matter how politically correct it sounds. Still, as a competitor, it doesn't sit well. It's still a business."

QuoteTitans running back Shonn Greene was arrested on Friday night on a handful of charges, the most serious a resisting stop charge stemming from him leaving the scene of an incident in Franklin, Tennessee.
Greene was charged with a handicap parking violation, driving on a revoked/suspended license, reckless driving and resisting stop/halt/frisk.
The incident began when Greene parked in a handicap parking space on the square in Franklin, located roughly 20 miles south of Nashville. When a parking enforcement officer approached Greene to issue a citation, police say he got in his 2012 BMW M6 and maneuvered to get around the parking enforcement officer's vehicle.
According to police, Greene nearly struck the officer's vehicle, and sped off from the area. Greene was later approached when he got caught up in traffic, but sped off again, police say.
Through an investigation, Franklin police determined Greene was the individual involved in the incident. Police got in touch with the Titans and arranged for Greene to turn himself in on Friday night around 9 p.m. He posted a $2,000 bond and was released at 10:38 p.m.
Sergeant Charles Warner of the Franklin Police Department said the entire incident could have been avoided.
"The entire situation could have been avoided if he would have left that handicap space for who it was intended for,'' Warner said.
"The fact that he didn't and got caught being parked there, he could have stopped things from going any further than a parking ticket if he would have simply communicated with the parking enforcement officer and not taken such evasive measures to get away from her, increasing the seriousness of what would have been a simple parking ticket."
The parking enforcement officer is a civilian, not a sworn police officer, "but certain laws apply to her and her authority," Warner said.
Greene turned himself in after being informed there were warrants for his arrest, Warner said. His court date has been scheduled for November 13 in General Sessions at 1 p.m.
The Titans released a statement on Saturday:
"This is not the type of behavior we expect from any member of our organization. We will continue to gather additional information as it becomes available and handle the matter internally."
A member of the team's media relations department posted a team photo taken on Saturday morning at Saint Thomas Sports Park, and Greene appeared in the photo, in uniform.
Greene has played in five games this season, rushing for 190 yards and a touchdown on 44 carries. He's missed the last two games with a hamstring injury, but returned to practice this week. On Friday, the Titans listed him as probable for Sunday's game against the Texans on the team's official Injury Report.
The Titans signed Greene to a three-year, $10 million contract prior to last season. He played in 11 games in 2013 and rushed for 295 yards and four touchdowns. Greene is making $2.3 million this season after collecting $4.15 million in base salary ($1.65) and signing bonus ($2.5 million) last March.
Greene played from 2009-2012 with the Jets.
The Titans don't have a shortage of running backs. Just this week the Titans promoted Antonio Andrews from the practice squad, and he joined running backs Bishop Sankey, Dexter McCluster, Leon Washington and Jackie Battle, in addition to Greene.
Sankey leads the Titans with 267 yards and a touchdown.
all that from parking in a handicap spot? really?... HA!

QuoteThrough 7 games, Ivory has a decent lead in total carries (22 more than Johnson) and is also averaging 4.9 yards per carry, which is .7 better than Powell and .8 better than Johnson. The former UDFA rushed for over 100 yards on Thursday against the Patriots, his second 100 yard rushing game this season, and looked quite good doing it. I decided to chart the game as well as go in depth and break down some of his rushing attempts.
