Seahawks QB Wilson will start against Jets

RENTON, Wash. — Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will start Sunday against the Jets despite a knee sprain.

Coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Wilson made it through the week of practices with no setbacks.

Wilson missed the first snap of his career due to injury last weekend after getting pulled down by 49ers linebacker Eli Harold, spraining the MCL in Wilson's left knee. It's the second injury Wilson has dealt with this season after spraining his right ankle in the opener against Miami.

"He made it through and had his best week since the first week when he tweaked his ankle," Carroll said. "He looked really good."

Browns to part with Gordon: The Browns have personal compassion for Josh Gordon. They're done with him professionally. A day after the troubled wide receiver said he's entering rehab for an unspecified condition, coach Hue Jackson said Friday that the team intends to "move on" from Gordon. "What we need to do is just close that chapter right now," Jackson said. "He's doing what he needs to do, and we need to do what we need to do, which is continue to move forward."

Chiefs: Running back Jamaal Charles is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game at Pittsburgh, meaning he could play for the first time since Week 5 of last season, when he tore his right ACL.

Fined: The league docked Washington cornerback Josh Norman $48,620 for his unnecessary roughness foul on Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard last week.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell stepped up when he had to Monday and delivered an impressive career-high seven-plus innings for the Rays. That it wasn't enough in what ended up a 5-0 loss to the Orioles that was their season-high fifth straight is symptomatic of the mess they are in right now.

    LHP Blake Snell stepped up when the Rays needed him to — and perhaps when he had to to keep his job — working a season-high seven plus innings. And it wasn't only that he got deep into the game, but how he did so, using his fastball to pound the strike zone.
