Angelo says teams hid abuse

Former Bucs director of player personnel Jerry Angelo said NFL teams didn't discipline players in "hundreds and hundreds" of domestic violence incidents during his 30-year career, USA Today reported Thursday.

"I made a mistake," he told the newspaper. "I was human. I was part of it. I'm not proud of it."

Angelo was the Bears' general manager from 2001-11. He entered the league as a scout with Dallas in 1980, worked as a scout for the Giants from 1982- 86, then worked for Tampa Bay from 1987 to 2001.

"We knew it was wrong," Angelo said. "For whatever reason, it just kind of got glossed over. I'm no psychiatrist, so I can't really get into what that part of it is. I'm just telling you how I was. I've got to look at myself first. And I was part of that, but I didn't stand alone."

A second arrest of Peterson is sought

HOUSTON — Vikings running back Adrian Peterson should be arrested after admitting during his court appearance on a child abuse charge that he had "smoked a little weed" while out on bond, Texas prosecutors said. In a court motion, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office said Peterson allegedly told a worker conducting his urinalysis exam during a Wednesday court appearance that he had smoked marijuana. Peterson is free on a $15,000 bond after he was indicted last month on a felony charge of injury to a child for using a wooden switch to discipline his 4-year-old son.

Attack victim paralyzed: A man attacked at Levi's Stadium on Sunday had part of his skull removed and has some paralysis, Santa Clara (Calif.) County prosecutor Deborah Hernandez said. The 32-year-old man's cousin told police the victim nudged another man to get that man to go to an open restroom stall just minutes before the 49ers kicked off. The suspect responded by saying he ''doesn't like to get pushed'' then punched the victim three times, knocking him out cold. A witness posted a video of the fight to YouTube, showing two suspects — brothers Dario and Amador Rebollero — throw several punches.

Colts 33, Texans 28: Andrew Luck threw three touchdowns, including the final 33-yarder to T.Y. Hilton with 2:52 left in the third quarter in Houston. Hilton finished with nine catches for 223 yards, 1 yard shy of the franchise record.

bengals: Pro Bowl receiver A.J. Green isn't expected to play Sunday. He visited a foot specialist Thursday to get a second opinion on an issue that flared up at the start of Wednesday's practice.

49ers: Quarterback Colin Kaepernick was fined $10,000 for wearing Beats by Dre headphones at a news conference because Bose is one of the NFL's many sponsors. The league was less offended by Broncos tight end Julius Thomas' chop block on Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell, who suffered a sprained knee ligament. He was fined $8,268.

Titans: Left tackle Michael Roos, who has played more games than any other offensive lineman since 2005, will have surgery to repair his right knee. Roos, who has played 148 games since being drafted out of Eastern Washington in 2005, missing one start in 2012 because of an appendectomy, is in the final year of his contract.
