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.

  1. Gators rally past Kentucky, streak hits 31


    LEXINGTON, Ky. — For the second week in a row, Florida found itself storming the field in a game that came down to the last second. A 57-yard field-goal attempt by Kentucky kicker Austin MacGinnis came just a few feet short of making history and snapping a 30-year losing streak, as the No. 20 Gators escaped a …

  2. Pen makes it way too interesting as Rays hang on for 9-6 win


    A couple of home runs provided the news pegs of the night for the Rays, but it was more topical to talk about what nearly happened as they hung on for a 9-6 win over the Orioles.

    Lucas Duda's three-run homer in the third inning was the Rays' record-breaking 217th of the season, as well as his …

  3. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Saturday's Rays-Orioles game

    RHP Jake Odorizzi admitted he probably should have gone on the DL sooner than late July for the back stiffness that was keeping him from throwing the ball where he wanted to. He has since found an impressive groove, with another strong outing Saturday.

  4. Matt Baker's takeaways from Florida State-N.C. State


    RB Cam Akers still looks like a former high school quarterback at times. His first two touches (30 yards) were special, but the freshman juked instead of powering ahead on his third (an unsuccessful third-and-1 rush). That's why the Seminoles are easing him in, as they did with Dalvin Cook three years ago.

  5. An attempt to project what Rays will look like in 2018

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.

    Adeiny Hechavarria, high-fiving Lucas Duda, seems likely to be brought back.
