EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) After nearly 14 months of arduous rehabilitation for his left knee, Teddy Bridgewater has arrived at the final stage.

Redskins put rookie DL Allen on IR

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) Rookie defensive lineman Jonathan Allen isn't returning to the Washington Redskins lineup any time soon, a blow to their revamped defense but one they believe they can survive.

Packers ready to rally around Hundley

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) In the visiting locker room after Green Bay lost to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, the Packers spoke of how they'd rally behind backup Brett Hundley in the absence of injured quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
