Cardinals work to replace Dockett; Mathieu returns (The Associated Press)
On the day the Arizona Cardinals went back to work for the first time since Darnell Dockett went down with a knee injury, the impact of losing the big defensive tackle for the season was softened a bit by the return of safety Tyrann Mathieu and nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu. The 'Honey Badger' Mathieu, a crucial component of Arizona's talented secondary, went down in the 13th game of his impressive rookie season a year ago with a torn ACL and LCL. With just Frostee Rucker and two rookies at Dockett's position, the Cardinals signed two free agent defensive linemen on Wednesday - 6-foot-2, 330-pound Isaac Sopoaga and 6-6, 305-pound Ryan McBean. Sopoaga is a 10-year NFL veteran who split last season with Philadelphia and New England.
Cowboys shuffle LBs with McClain skipping workouts (The Associated Press)
One day Rolando McClain is getting first-team work with the Dallas defense after owner Jerry Jones offers yet another hopeful plug that the former top 10 pick can fill a big void at linebacker. The next, McClain is sitting out practice again, raising more questions about the desire of a player who walked away from the sport twice in Baltimore before the Ravens traded him to a team desperate to replace Sean Lee after a season-ending knee injury. Justin Durant is the swingman as the Cowboys search, playing his more natural spot on the weak side when McClain is on the field and mostly filling the middle when McClain isn't.
RG3's ungraceful slide remains hot Redskins topic (The Associated Press)
Robert Griffin III stood at his locker and answered five consecutive questions about sliding. ''I could keep going over this, over and over,'' the Washington Redskins quarterback said with a touch of good-natured exasperation. ''Gah! I slid correctly on the third time.'' Coach Jay Gruden also faced five questions about Griffin's far-from-graceful sliding technique. Griffin on Wednesday acknowledged that he put himself on the line a bit too much when he took some big hits while scrambling in open field against the Cleveland Browns on Monday night.
AFC North trying to regain reputation as the best (The Associated Press)
They do things a little differently in the AFC North. They're patient with their coaches and quarterbacks - well, with the exception of Cleveland, which is in a league of its own when it comes to change. The AFC North is coming off what amounts to a down year for the NFL's most successful division over the past six years. Only one team reached the playoffs, Cincinnati, which lost in the opening round for the third year in a row.
Cowboys, Patriots top Forbes NFL franchise value list; Bills, Rams on bottom (Shutdown Corner)
Want to buy an NFL franchise? Better liquidate grandma's AT&T stock. Forbes has come out with its annual list of the NFL's most valuable franchises , and there are some familiar names at the top. The Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots top the list, coming in well above the exorbitant $2 billion that the NBA's Los Angeles Clippers were recently sold for. [ Smack talk season is back at Yahoo Sports: Sign up and play free Fantasy Football! ] The Cowboys, which Forbes estimates will generate a combined $8.6 million in revenue for the team over the next five years with its massive JerryWorld stadium and fans the world over, are tops at a whopping $3.2 billion. The Patriots check in at a still-impressive $2.6 billion — not bad for a franchise Robert Kraft bought back in 1994 for a measley $172 million. The average franchise now is valued at $1.43 billion, the highest figure in the past 17 years that Forbes started tracking NFL team finances. That average took a massive boost of 23 percent from one year ago, which was the biggest one-year increase percentage since 1999. With reports out that the for-sale Buffalo Bills are garnering offers well north of $1 billion, it might surprise you to find out that they came in 31st of the 32 teams at a value of $935 million. But if that same trend of value increase continues, the Bills' new owner likely can feel better about their purchase in the golden-egg-laying NFL. Bringing up the rear on the list: the St. Louis Rams, whose stadium issues loom as a concern, at $930 million. Oft mentioned as a possible Los Angeles candidate should Rams owner Stan Kroenke seek to move the team folliowing the expiration of the Edward Jones Dome, that value could skyrocket with the right stadium situation and league support — i.e. hosting a Super Bowl down the road. Here's the list in its entirety: Forbes rank NFL franchise Estimated value 1 Dallas Cowboys $3.2 billion 2 New England Patriots $2.6 billion 3 Washington Redskins $2.4 billion 4 New York Giants $2.1 billion 5 Houston Texans $1.85 billion 6 New York Jets $1.8 billion 7 Philadelphia Eagles $1.75 billion 8 Chicago Bears $1.7 billion 9 San Francisco 49ers $1.6 billion 10 Baltimore Ravens $1.5 billion 11 Denver Broncos $1.45 billion 12 Indianapolis Colts $1.4 billion 13 Green Bay Packers $1.38 billion 14 Pittsburgh Steelers $1.35 billion 15 Seattle Seahawks $1.33 billion 16 Miami Dolphins $1.3 billion 17 Carolina Panthers $1.25 billion 18 Tampa Bay Buccaneers $1.23 billion 19 Tennessee Titans $1.16 billion 20 Minnesota Vikings $1.15 billion 21 Atlanta Falcons $1.13 billion 22 Cleveland Browns $1.12 billion 23 New Orleans Saints $1.11 billion 24 Kansas City Chiefs $1.1 billion 25 Arizona Cardinals $1 billion 26 San Diego Chargers $995 million 27 Cincinnati Bengals $990 million 28 Oakland Raiders $970 million 29 Jacksonville Jaguars $965 million 30 Detroit Lions $960 million 31 Buffalo Bills $935 million 32 St. Louis Rams $930 million - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

Kubiak has Ravens' ground game is up and running (The Associated Press)
The Baltimore Ravens seem to be adjusting well to new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak. The Ravens have averaged a league-best 194 rushing yards in two preseason games. The running game is ''where everything starts for us,'' said Kubiak, who was hired after Jim Caldwell took the Lions head coaching job. ''We've got to be able to run the football to make the rest of it go.'' The preseason numbers have been skewed a bit by the running of backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who has 65 rushing yards in two games.

ALS-stricken Shaw 'not scared to die' (The SportsXchange)
Former Tennessee Titans defensive lineman Tim Shaw was diagnosed with ALS, and first experienced debilitating symptoms in April. "I would never say I am not afraid of anything,'' Shaw said Wednesday at Saint Thomas Sports Park, the Titans' team headquarters and practice facility. Shaw, 30, retired from the NFL on his birthday earlier this year. Because Shaw is under age 45, he would be awarded a maximum benefit of $5 million from the NFL under the proposed head injuries settlement.
