Belichick uncertain on Stallworth's role


Belichick uncertain on Stallworth's role

FOXBORO -- With Donte' Stallworth back in the mix for the Patriots after being re-signed this week, his role on the team remains uncertain.

Stallworth was released during training camp, but was brought back to replace injured wide receiver Julian Edelman, who was placed on injured reserve with a foot injury.

Belichick said he needs to see Stallworth at practice before distinguishing his role for Monday night's game against the Houston Texans.

"I don't know, we'll see how it goes this week," said Belichick before Wednesday's practice. "We'll see what his role ends up being this week. We haven't seen him for three months, so we'll have him out there at practice, go through some things and see how it goes. We'll do what we think is best for the team for this week."

NFL owners release statements on Trump comments


NFL owners release statements on Trump comments

President Donald Trump's comments about NFL players and his tweeted dis-invite of the Warriors led to some prominent athletes to speak out. Now NFL franchises and their owners are weighing in.

At a rally in Alabama on Friday night, Trump said NFL owners should fire players who kneel during the national anthem. And he encouraged NFL fans to walk out of games in protest. 

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you’d say, ’Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired,” Trump told the rally. 

He also lamented that football has become less violent.

“They’re ruining the game,” he complained.
