Mark Sanchez remains on the sidelines with the New York Jets but believes he won the No. 1 quarterback job and plans to play again after rehabbing an injured shoulder.

The Associated Press

Fox said the team is helping Miller stay out of trouble any way it can, and pointed out that Miller's infractions were nothing more serious than traffic citations.

RAIDERS: Kicker Sebastian Janikowski was surprised and angry to read a report quoting Jacksonville kicker Josh Scobee claiming Janikowski annually roots for the Oakland Athletics to miss the playoffs so the dirt can be replaced with sod.

"I root for the A's, I want them to do well," Janikowski said. "I've been to several A's games. Whatever (Scobee) said, it just blows my mind. The conversation never happened. If they make the postseason, I'm excited for them."

BUCCANEERS: Quarterback Josh Freeman recently missed a meeting for a team photo but said it was an isolated incident that hasn't been a distraction for the team.

Freeman said he overslept and didn't show up on time for an early-morning photo shoot on Labor Day. Later he was not selected as a team captain, but doesn't feel the vote was related to the unexcused absence.

SAINTS: New Orleans signed defensive end Jay Richardson, bolstering its defensive line following a left knee injury to end Tyrunn Walker in Week 1.

Coach Sean Payton said the club also waived receiver Andy Tanner to make room for Richardson.

CHIEFS: Running back Jamaal Charles was back at practice after missing the previous day's workout with a bruised thigh muscle sustained in last week's viuctory against Jacksonville.

Charles did participate in a walkthrough Wednesday, after which Coach Andy Reid said he expected Charles to be OK for Sunday's game against Dallas.
