Reports: Jaguars star DT Stroud faces steroid suspension

Jaguars defensive tackle Marcus Stroud practiced as usual 
Wednesday despite uncertainty about his future. A newspaper 
and a radio station reported that Stroud is facing a four-game 
suspension for violating the NFL's steroids and related 
substances policy. The Florida Times-Union and WJXL-AM in 
Jacksonville, citing anonymous sources, said Stroud tested 
positive for banned supplements. According to the Times-Union, 
Stroud's 'A' sample came back positive last week. The paper 
said he exercised his right to have his 'B' sample tested Monday.
Stroud, a three-time Pro Bowl tackle who has 29 tackles and 
three sacks this season, declined to address the reports 
Wednesday, but said he expects to play at New Orleans.
"I'll be there Sunday," Stroud said. "I'm not here to squash 
rumors. I'm here to play ball. Whatever happens will happen. 
But right now, I'm going to focus on New Orleans. I have no 
comment on anything else." Stroud missed five games last season 
because of an ankle injury and then had micro-fracture surgery 
early this year. Once considered cutting-edge, the operation -- 
which creates small holes around the bone in hopes of stimulating 
new cartilage growth -- has become much more common in recent years.
It was unclear whether Stroud's reported positive test had anything 
to do with his rehabilitation regimen. The NFL does not comment 
on any matter involving its confidential drug policy.

Jets WR Coles has concussion, status for Sunday uncertain

Jets wide receiver Laveranues Coles has a concussion and it
was uncertain Wednesday if he'll play in New York's game against 
Washington this weekend. Coach Eric Mangini addressed Coles' 
injury during a conference call with Redskins beat writers. 
Mangini didn't mention Coles in his earlier news conference 
with Jets writers. "Any time you have an injury it is scary," 
Mangini said. "With a guy like Laveranues who is so tough, you
have to be careful and make sure you go through the same process 
that you would go through with every other player. That is what 
we are doing." The Jets wide receiver didn't practice 
Wednesday and wouldn't address the injury because it's against 
team policy. Mangini was unsure if Coles will be ready to play 
Sunday against the Redskins. "We will go through the process 
and look at him throughout the course of the week and evaluate 
him when we get a lot closer to the game," Mangini said.
Coles was injured last Sunday with 7:41 left in the Jets' 
13-3 loss to Buffalo when he jumped to catch a pass from 
Chad Pennington and was immediately hit in the middle of the 
back by Terrence McGee. Coles' chest and head slammed to the 
turf and he stayed face-down for several minutes. He was 
eventually able to walk off the field, but didn't return.
Coles has 42 catches for 473 yards and a team-leading six 
touchdowns. He hasn't missed a game since his rookie season 
in 2000, and has a streak of 104 consecutive regular-season 
games played. On Wednesday, Coles was on the practice field 
in green sweats and a Jets cap while the wide receivers went 
through drills during the half-hour window the media get to 
watch. He also spoke a few times with Pennington, his good 
friend who was benched in favor of second-year quarterback 
Kellen Clemens. It is believed to be the second concussion 
the star receiver has suffered in 10 months. Coles was tackled 
hard by Miami's Zach Thomas during a game last Christmas, a 
hit that left him motionless on the Dolphin Stadium turf for 
a few seconds and caused a cut on Coles' head. It was reported 
that Coles suffered a concussion, but the Jets never verified 
the injury. The wide receiver was back in the starting lineup 
the following weekend against Oakland. 

Texans quarterback Schaub likely out against Raiders with 

Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub was still feeling the 
effects of a concussion from a helmet-to-helmet hit on 
Wednesday, and coach Gary Kubiak said he probably wouldn't 
play Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. Schaub, who has 
started every game this season for the Texans since an 
offseason trade with Atlanta, said his health has improved 
dramatically since he was knocked out of Sunday's game against 
the San Diego Chargers. "It's feeling better, clearing up a 
little bit," he said. "Headaches are subsiding, so we'll take 
it day to day." Schaub was injured when he was blindsided by 
Drayton Florence after throwing his second interception in 
Houston's loss to the Chargers. It was the second straight 
week he'd been knocked out of the game by a helmet-to-helmet 
blow. Schaub left the previous week's game against Tennesee 
on two occasions, the second time with a hip injury. He said 
this was his first concussion. Schaub sat on the sideline 
rubbing his temples for several minutes before he was taken 
to the locker room. "It was hurting. I had headaches," he 
said. "I was a little out of it and not really with it and 
really cloudy and foggy in my head. It was a weird feeling 
not ever experiencing anything like that prior." With Schaub 
likely out, Sage Rosenfels should get the third start of his 
career and his first since a 22-0 loss to Cleveland in 2005 
when he was with Miami. Rosenfels relieved Schaub against 
the Chargers, completing 17 of 27 passes for 176 yards with 
one touchdown and two interceptions.
