  • NFL Roundup: Rough day physically for QBs in Week 3

    Ouch!

    That's the kind of day it was for several NFL quarterbacks, most notably Michael Vick, who broke his right hand, and Mark Sanchez, who might have done the same to his nose.

    Adding more pain Sunday, both lost.

    So did Sam Bradford, who was sacked five times, and Matt Ryan, who went down four times.

    Vick started for Philadelphia despite suffering a concussion in last week's loss at Atlanta. He left the 29-16 defeat at the hands of the New York Giants with the broken hand in the fourth quarter after helping the Eagles overcome a 14-0 first-quarter deficit to take a 16-14 lead.

    It's uncertain how long Vick will be out.

  • Losses, lack of support cited in UNM coach firing--video extra

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico's bad record, a lack of fan support, and a number of "embarrassing" off-the-field events led to the firing of head football coach Mike Locksley, athletic director Paul Krebs said Monday.

    Speaking at a news conference on campus, Krebs said he told Locksley on Sunday of his decision to fire him after the Lobos lost 48-45 in overtime Saturday to Sam Houston State before an announced crowd of 16,313 — the smallest home crowd in nearly two decades.

    "In the end I made a decision I thought needed to be made," said Krebs. "I did not see any good ending to this story."
