INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indianapolis Colts put outside linebacker Trent Cole on injured reserve Tuesday.
Devonta Freeman practically wore out the Superdome turf with one long gain after another, Tevin Coleman wouldn't be denied near the goal line and the New Orleans Saints hardly looked like the team that made an emotional homecoming nearly 10 years ago to the day. Coleman rushed for three touchdowns, Matt Ryan passed for two TDs and Deion Jones returned an interception 90 yards for a score to help the Atlanta Falcons beat the winless New Orleans Saints 45-32 on Monday night. Everybody was doing their job and everybody was playing for each other,'' Coleman said.
Dallas left guard La'el Collins will be placed on injured reserve with a possible return late in the season because of a right toe injury, a person with knowledge of the injury said Monday. Collins left late in the first half of Sunday night's 31-17 win over Chicago with a toe injury. Speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because details of the injury weren't released, the person said Collins has a ligament injury on his right big toe.
Former Dallas defensive end Greg Hardy, who remains unsigned after a tumultuous 2015 season revolving around his domestic violence case in North Carolina, was arrested on a cocaine possession charge in Texas. Hardy was booked early Monday and later released on $5,000 bond in the Dallas suburb of Richardson on a charge of possession of a controlled substance of less than one gram, jail spokesman Tim Weed said. The 28-year-old Hardy signed with Dallas as a free agent last year after Carolina decided not to bring him back as a result of the domestic violence case.
As of Monday afternoon, Pete Carroll's expectation was that Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson will be the starter on Sunday when the Seahawks face the New York Jets despite a sprained MCL in his left knee. ''What he has, a lot of guys play with,'' Carroll said on Monday afternoon. For the second time in three weeks, Wilson's health was the primary topic the day after a Seahawks victory.
If Washington Redskins safety DeAngelo Hall's season-ending injury might lead others to suspect the playmaking defensive back's 13-year NFL career is over, he was adamant Monday that won't be the case. Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Monday that Hall needed surgery on his ACL. Hall, who turns 33 in November, was hurt in the first half of Washington's 29-27 victory at the NFC East rival New York Giants on Sunday.
The Giants' first regular-season loss under Ben McAdoo looked like many of the crushing defeats from their last year under Tom Coughlin. In falling 29-27 to the Redskins on Sunday, the Giants (2-1) blew a late lead, turned over the ball three times, had dumb penalties, and sustained a couple of injuries that are going to leave them short-handed heading to Minnesota next Monday night. While Odell Beckham Jr. was OK on the field in his matchup with cornerback Josh Norman, the receiver had meltdowns on the sideline that McAdoo said were a distraction.
Patriots coach Bill Belichick remains mum on his team's quarterback situation ahead of its game against division rival Buffalo this week. Belichick declined to provide updates Monday on the health of Jimmy Garoppolo or rookie Jacoby Brissett, both of whom may be unavailable. Franchise quarterback Tom Brady will be serving the last game of his four-game ''Deflategate'' suspension.
