Bucs' Grimes has IRS lien placed on South Florida home

RECOMMENDED READING


TAMPA — Cornerback Brent Grimes, who is making $7 million to play for the Bucs this season, has a lien against his home in South Florida from the IRS as a result of unpaid taxes from 2014, the Miami Herald reported Thursday.

Grimes, 33, could not be reached for comment.

Grimes, a four-time Pro Bowl player, owes $191,471 to the IRS, according to the lien filed on the home in Davie, the newspaper reported. The IRS has "made a demand for payment of this liability, but it remains unpaid," the lien says. Grimes and his wife, Miko, bought the five-bedroom, 4½-bath home in 2014 for $1.2 million, the Herald reported.

Chargers 21, Broncos 13: Philip Rivers threw for 178 yards and one touchdown, passing Hall of Famer Dan Fouts to become the franchise's career passing leader, Josh Lambo kicked four field goals, and the host Chargers might have saved embattled coach Mike McCoy's job. Rivers, in his 13th season with the Chargers, has 43,094 career yards passing. Fouts threw for 43,040 in 15 seasons. The Broncos, who lost their second straight, were coached by special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis with Gary Kubiak out because of a migraine condition that mimics strokes.

Browns: Cody Kessler will start at quarterback Sunday against the Titans despite the painful injury the rookie suffered on the left side of his chest and rib area against the Patriots on Sunday. "I know Cody is ready to play," coach Hue Jackson said after practice.

Dolphins: Rookie left guard Laremy Tunsil called his Sunday morning shower injury a "freak accident" but didn't get specific about how he injured his right ankle, an ailment that caused him to miss the loss to the Titans. "I walked out the shower, slipped," the first-round pick out of Ole Miss said. "Things happen. That's the only thing I can say, things happen." Tunsil said he would be ready to play Sunday against the Steelers.

Panthers: Quarterback Cam Newton was a full participant in practice, but coach Ron Rivera said he remained in the league's concussion protocol. Newton declined interview requests.

REDSKINS: Tight end Jordan Reed has been diagnosed with a concussion, coach Jay Gruden said, adding that the former Gator is in the league's concussion protocol and will continue to be evaluated.

Dolphins Super Bowl star Walker dies: Fulton Walker, best remembered for scoring the first kickoff return for a touchdown in Super Bowl history, died of an apparent heart attack at his home in Martinsburg, W. Va., on Wednesday. He was 58. Mr. Walker's 98-yard return against the Redskins in Super Bowl XVII in 1983 gave the Dolphins a 17-10 lead. Miami eventually lost 27-17. Walker, who still holds the Super Bowl record for career kickoff return yardage (283), played for the Dolphins (1981-85) and Los Angeles Raiders (1985-86) during his six-year career.
