Deserved punishment

Cowboys CB Adam Jones deserved the indefinite suspension (minimum four games) he got for his latest off-field altercation. What doesn't he understand about zero tolerance? The Cowboys still might take him back.

Sitting one out

Chiefs RB Larry Johnson has another he-said, she-said assault charge pending. He has also violated team rules, which will keep him on the sideline today when QB Brodie Croyle returns and the Chiefs need him the most.

Too much conversation

Rams G Richie Incognito likely would have been cut if Josh Brown missed a game-winning field goal in Washington. Incognito's 15-yard penalty for yapping at officials turned a 34-yard kick into a 49-yard boot.

Costly secret

Vikings FB Thomas Tapeh neglected to tell team officials he had surgery on one of his knees shortly before signing a contract with a $1.25 million signing bonus, and team doctors missed it. Inactive the past four games, Tapeh was cut.
