Williams' comeback done after six carries with chest injury

Ricky Williams' latest comeback lasted one game.  The Miami 
Dolphins running back will miss the rest of the season with a 
torn chest muscle, according to his agent, Leigh Steinberg.
Williams was hurt Monday at Pittsburgh, when he played in his 
first game in nearly two years. He returned following a 1½-year 
suspension for his latest violation of the NFL drug policy.
Steinberg said the arm will be in a sling from four to six 
weeks and the rehab will take five months. But Steinberg said 
Williams expects to be ready for next season. "It's sad given 
how hopeful Ricky had been about his return to football and 
given the amount of effort Ricky had put into his rehabilitation. 
But he's optimistic and hopeful for the future." With a winless 
record, the Dolphins were desperate for help and eager to 
showcase Williams in hopes of increasing his trade value. 
Coach Cam Cameron decided to play Williams only a week after 
he joined practice. "My No. 1 concern coming into the game, 
when you hurry a guy back, obviously he could get hurt," 
Cameron said after the game. The team was off Tuesday, and a 
spokesman for the Dolphins said they had no comment on Williams' 
status. Miami is 0-11 and plays the New York Jets on Sunday.
Williams was injured in the second quarter Monday on a play 
when he fumbled. After being tackled, he was accidentally 
stepped on while chest-down on the ground. Williams left the 
game, returned briefly and departed for good after one more 
carry. He finished with 15 yards in six carries, and the 
Dolphins lost 3-0 on a last-minute field goal. Miami running 
back Jesse Chatman sat out the second half with a neck injury, 
and his availability for the Jets game is in doubt. The 
Dolphins' other running backs are Patrick Cobbs and rookie 
Lorenzo Booker.The Dolphins lost starter Ronnie Brown for the 
season to a knee injury last month. Williams, the 2002 NFL 
rushing champion, has played in only 13 games since retiring 
in the summer of 2004. He has tested positive for marijuana 
at least four times since the Dolphins acquired him in 2002, 
and their franchise-record playoff drought began that same 
year. Williams hasn't missed an NFL game because of an injury 
since 2000 when he was with the New Orleans Saints.

Colts release former sack star Rice, sign RB Lawton

Defensive end Simeon Rice, signed two weeks ago to fill in 
for injured Pro Bowler Dwight Freeney, was released Tuesday 
by the Indianapolis Colts. Rice, who played one season for 
Colts coach Tony Dungy at Tampa Bay, was claimed off waivers 
from Denver after Freeney suffered a season-ending foot injury 
at San Diego. Rice played the past two games, both as a 
reserve, and had one sack. Dungy and other team officials 
were not available for comment, Colts spokesman Craig Kelley 
said. The team also re-signed running back Luke Lawton, who 
played the first six games mainly on special teams, but was 
released last month. 

Cardinals cut punter Barr, place CB Eric Green on injured reserve

Arizona Cardinals starting cornerback Eric Green is out for 
the rest of the season with a groin tear, and the team 
released punter Mike Barr on Tuesday. Green was hurt in the 
first half of Sunday's 37-31 overtime loss to San Francisco. 
A third-round draft pick out of Virginia Tech in 2005, Green 
had 51 tackles this season, including 47 solo stops. He is the 
fourth Arizona starter to go on injured reserve, joining 
quarterback Matt Leinart, defensive end Bertrand Berry and 
offensive tackle Oliver Ross. Antrel Rolle and Ralph Brown are 
the backup cornerbacks.Barr was inconsistent all season. He had 
a punt blocked earlier this year and shanked a 17-yarder during 
a critical point in overtime Sunday. His line-drive punt led to 
a 51-yard return by the 49ers' Michael Lewis. Barr also was the 
holder for kicker Neil Rackers. Wide receiver Sean Morey is 
listed as the backup holder. Barr was picked up on waivers from 
the Pittsburgh Steelers shortly before the team released Scott 
Player, Arizona's punter for nine seasons. Barr had not kicked 
in an NFL game before this season. The team also released tight 
end Tim Euhus and re-signed defensive end Bo Schobel.
Schobel has been signed, then released, by the Cardinals each 
of the past two weeks.

Jags sign LB Cooper, release LB Cordova

The Jacksonville Jaguars signed linebacker Marquis Cooper and 
released linebacker Jorge Cordova. The Jaguars also moved 
rookie defensive end Brian Smith from the physically unable 
to perform list to injured reserve. Smith, a fourth-round pick 
from Missouri, injured his hip during his senior year and 
spent the first 12 weeks of the NFL season on the PUP list.
Cooper, a third-round pick by Tampa Bay in 2004, has played 
27 career games for the Buccaneers and Seattle. He was released 
by Pittsburgh after the first two games of the season; he was 
inactive for both. Cordova re-signed with the Jags three weeks 
ago and played two games on special teams.

Jags OT Barnes sidesteps parole violation

A judge ruled that Jaguars offensive tackle Khalif Barnes 
didn't violate his drunken driving probation by crashing his 
car on his way to medical treatment. Duval County Judge James 
Ruth determined that the 25-year-old offensive lineman did 
not have any criminal violations or technical violations of 
his probation, which ends in January. Barnes crashed his 2007 
Mercedes-Benz into a tree in his gated neighborhood Sept. 29, 
then left and called police. He said he fell asleep at the 
wheel while en route to the stadium for physical therapy 
required by the team for an injured ankle. Later, Barnes 
called to report the car stolen, but retracted that statement 
after talking to police. Prosecutors decided not to file 
criminal charges of leaving the scene of an accident in that
