Lions coach brushes off jab by 49ers owner

Jed York, owner of the 49ers, had some fun with "The Handshake" at a midweek pep rally to promote tonight's Lions-49ers/Jim Schwartz-Jim Harbaugh showdown in San Francisco

"Just because we had a big win last week doesn't guarantee anything next week," York told a crowd of 49ers fans. "So please make sure you come out there, give us as much support as possible and by all means when you're shaking somebody's hand at the end of the game, don't do it too hard."

Asked about York's comments Saturday, Schwartz said, "I don't have any take on it. Like I said, none of that stuff matters on Sunday night and our job's to go play football. We'll do our very best to play football."

EX-BUC ARRESTED: Former receiver Antonio Bryant, who spent his last two seasons with the Bucs (2008-09), was arrested in Broward County after turning himself in to authorities. According to court and police records, Bryant strangled the mother of his child in April, but a warrant for his arrest wasn't issued until August.

BEARS: Running back Kahlil Bell returned to the team to provide depth behind Michael Bush, with starter Matt Forte out two to six weeks with a high ankle sprain.

EAGLES: Defensive end Jason Babin was fined $15,750 for a hit on Browns QB Brandon Weeden.

RAIDERS: Cornerback Ron Bartell went on injured reserve with a broken shoulder blade and could return to games in eight weeks.
