FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — Falcons coach Mike Smith had plenty of concerns after his team's late-night win over Denver.
Injuries. Running game. Then he had to add Michael Turner's off the field troubles to the list.
The former Pro Bowl running back was arrested on suspicion of DUI and speeding early Tuesday morning.
Smith said he met with Turner after his release from jail and expressed the organization's disappointment. The coach would not say if the Falcons will discipline him before they visit San Diego on Sunday.
Also, the Falcons don't know if nickel back Christopher Owens will be cleared to play. Owens sustained a concussion in Monday's 27-21 victory.
Meanwhile, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning threw three interceptions in the loss. Asked if the picks had more to do with his surgically repaired neck or his decision making, Manning wasted no time.
"Decision making," he said.
But there was some zip missing on some of his intermediate passes and a few wobblers.
NO KNEELING?: Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, whose team hosts the Bucs Sunday, says he thinks kneeling down to kill the clock — the play that begat the Bucs-Giants controversy on Sunday — should be banned. "I don't like it," Jones told the Dallas Morning News. "(Chiefs founder) Lamar Hunt tried several times to introduce a rule to have it voted on that you couldn't kneel down, you had to run a play. … I've always thought that that's a wasted play for our fans."
BOUNTIES: Will Smith and Anthony Hargrove met with commissioner Roger Goodell about the Saints bounty scandal and Scott Fujita's meeting was postponed. Fujita, now with the Browns, had treatment for an injured left knee and couldn't come to New York, the NFL Players' Association said.
BENGALS: Defensive end Wallace Gilberry signed days after the Bucs released him. Defensive end Jamaal Anderson (torn quad tendon) went on injured reserve.
DOLPHINS: General manager Jeff Ireland admitted that he muttered a profanity as he walked away from a fan after an unfriendly conversation at halftime of Sunday's home game against Oakland. The fan complained about the direction of the team and told the GM he should fire himself. Ireland said Tuesday he regrets his response. "I thought I was saying it to myself under my breath, but I must have said it loud enough that he could hear it," Ireland said. … Former Florida State defensive tackle Andre Fluellen signed. He played the previous four seasons for the Lions and was cut this year.
EAGLES: Center Jason Kelce was placed on IR after surgery on a torn medial collateral ligament in his right knee. Once that heals in about a month, he will have surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
REDSKINS: Linebacker Markus White was signed off of the Bucs' practice squad.
STEELERS: Linebacker James Harrison (right knee) and safety Troy Polamalu (strained right calf) are still questionable but coach Mike Tomlin said he could amend one of his longtime rules about practicing this week before Sunday's game at Oakland. Traditionally Tomlin likes players to get at least one day of training during the week before letting them play.
