Bucs rule out QB Winston vs. Falcons

(TSX / STATS) -- METAIRIE, La. -- The euphoria of the New Orleans Saints' dramatic overtime victory against the Washington Redskins on Sunday in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome was tempered by a couple of realities a day later.

Texans RB Foreman out for rest of season

(TSX / STATS) -- HOUSTON -- When powerful rookie running back D'Onta Foreman grabbed the back of his left leg Sunday in the end zone after sustaining a ruptured Achilles tendon, it ended his season and delivered a mighty blow to the Houston Texans' running game.

Miami's Gase: Cutler to start if healthy

(TSX / STATS) -- DAVIE, Fla. -- Miami Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler has taken a beating recently, between the ribs injury that forced him to miss the Baltimore games three weeks ago and the possible concussion that caused him to leave Sunday's 30-20 loss to Tampa Bay at halftime.

But head coach Adam Gase said Cutler, who is in concussion protocol, will remain the starter if he's able to play Sunday at New England.
