Colts sign DE Rice as Freeney could miss 4 games

The Indianapolis Colts have claimed defensive end Simeon Rice 
off waivers, expecting him to fill in for injured Pro Bowler 
Dwight Freeney. The announcement was made by team president 
Bill Polian on his weekly radio show Monday night and later 
posted on the team's Web site. Rice, released by Denver on 
Friday, played one season for Colts coach Tony Dungy in Tampa 
Bay. He has 121 career sacks, second among active players to 
Michael Strahan of the New York Giants. The Colts (7-2) are 
uncertain how much time Freeney will miss. Dungy said earlier 
Monday he had not yet met with the doctors and he did not 
anticipate it to be season-ending. But Polian said Freeney 
could miss four or more games because of a left foot injury 
that caused him to be carted into the locker room during Sunday 
night's 23-21 loss at San Diego. The Colts have not yet released 
details of the injury. "We anticipate that Dwight will miss 
some significant amount of time," Polian said. The Colts signed 
Freeney in July to a six-year deal, paying an average of $12 
million. He has 32 tackles and 3 1/2 sacks on the season.
The 33-year-old Rice was deactivated for two games in October 
and has six tackles and five assists on the season. He signed 
a one-year, $3 million contract with the Broncos on Sept. 3.

Edwards confirms: Croyle new starting QB for impotent Chiefs

Damon Huard is out and Brodie Croyle is in as starting 
quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs.  Coach Herm Edwards 
said Monday the strong-armed Croyle, who came in for a shaken-
up Huard against Denver on Sunday, would start at Indianapolis 
this week as the Chiefs try to snap a two-game losing streak 
and revive one of the NFL's weakest offenses. "You need a 
spark," Edwards said. "We've been in some contests now where 
we haven't had the ability to score points. That's part of 
your job as a quarterback, to put points on the board and 
move the football team. We've moved at times, but we've also 
been very inconsistent." Croyle was 17-for-30 for 162 yards, 
with one interception, in the 27-11 loss that dropped Kansas 
City to 4-5. Huard, an 11-year veteran, was a career backup 
until he took over for the injured Trent Green last year and 
played well in eight games. Huard then beat out Croyle in the 
preseason for the starter's job but has been inconsistent -- 
before Croyle came in Sunday he had thrown two interceptions 
and lost a fumble in that game. "Damon's done a good job 
helping us win four games. It's never on one guy, obviously," 
Edwards said. "You need a spark. We've been in some contests 
now where we haven't had the ability to score points.
"At this point in time, this is a chance for me and this 
organization to evaluate a young player that we think has a 
chance to play quarterback. But you don't know until he has 
an opportunity." A third-round pick in 2006 out of Alabama, 
Croyle will be the first quarterback drafted by Kansas City 
to start a game for the Chiefs since Todd Blackledge, who 
was drafted in 1983.

Vikings Peterson out at least 1 game with injured knee

As Adrian Peterson was prone on the Lambeau Field turf, his 
football future flashed before his eyes as a searing pain 
radiated from his right knee. "That pain was horrible. I don't 
know if you've ever experienced pain where you don't want 
anybody to touch you. Just be still for a few minutes until 
it calms down. That's the kind of pain it was," Peterson said. 
"Not really knowing what to expect because it was my knee. I 
was just praying, 'God please, don't let it be anything 
serious."' He spent a sleepless Sunday night at his home in 
Eden Prairie, with the worry getting so great that he found 
himself doing a self-examination of both knees to see if he 
could detect any differences, all in the hope of finding some 
comfort. After getting an MRI exam on Monday, Peterson should 
be sleeping much better now. The rookie sensation, who just a 
week earlier set the NFL single-game rushing record with 296 
yards against San Diego, will miss at least one game with a 
torn lateral collateral ligament. But the injury is not deemed 
serious enough to require surgery or jeopardize Peterson's 
season. "I was very relieved. It could've been a lot worse," 
Peterson said. "I just thank God. I'll be back soon." Vikings 
coach Brad Childress ruled Peterson out for Sunday's game 
against Oakland, but wouldn't put a timetable on his recovery 
beyond that. Team doctors told Childress that with ligament 
tears graded on a three-point scale, with three being the 
worst, Peterson's tear is "two-plus." It's not as serious as 
an anterior cruciate ligament tear. "He's lucky," head athletic 
trainer Eric Sugarman said. "If he's 30 degrees in front with 
that foot fixed, we're talking about a very significant injury 
today. So he's very lucky that this is all he has."
Peterson was injured in the third quarter Sunday. Packers 
cornerback Al Harris hit him in the knee just as Peterson was 
about to make a cut downfield, and he writhed in pain for 
several minutes in a scary scene.

McNair might be headed back to bench

If his ineffectiveness doesn't send Steve McNair to the 
Baltimore Ravens bench, perhaps a sore shoulder will. The 
struggling quarterback has developed "substantial soreness" 
in his non-throwing shoulder, Ravens coach Brian Billick said 
Monday. That, coupled with McNair's unsightly numbers over 
the past two weeks, could cause Billick to turn to Kyle Boller 
in Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns. McNair, who has 
already missed time this season with groin and back injuries, 
committed three turnovers and threw for only 128 yards Sunday 
before being replaced in the fourth quarter of a 21-7 loss to 
Cincinnati. Six days earlier, McNair lost two fumbles and threw 
an interception in a 38-7 defeat at Pittsburgh. Billick 
insisted Monday no decision has been made on the starting 
quarterback against the Browns, saying he needed more information 
on McNair's physical status. "Right now, the injury is what we 
will have to address first and foremost, to see exactly what 
that is," Billick said. McNair was given two weeks off before
the Ravens' bye on Oct. 28. But the extended break did little 
to increase his effectiveness, and now Baltimore (4-5) is mired 
in a three-game losing streak that has all but shattered the 
team's bid to return to the playoffs. 

Kitna says of back injury: I'm fine

Quarterback Jon Kitna dismissed questions about a back injury, 
despite concerns raised by coach Rod Marinelli. Marinelli said 
Monday that Kitna had a lower back injury, but Kitna disagreed.
"I feel as good today as I have in five weeks," he said. "I'm 
fine." Marinelli said cornerback Fernando Bryant was questionable 
for this weekend's game against the visiting Giants with a 
sprained foot, and defensive end Dewayne White could return 
after missing Sunday's loss at Arizona with an arm injury.
Offensive tackle Jonathan Scott is expected to miss his second 
straight game with a broken thumb.
