Marcus Cannon added to Pats' roster
The 6-foot-6, 348-pound Cannon, the team's fifth-round draft choice out of TCU, said last month that he's in full remission from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a form of cancer. He returned to practice last month and his three-week window expired Tuesday, forcing the Patriots to decide whether to add him to the 53-man roster or shift him to season-ending injured reserve.

New England Patriots rookie offensive tackle Marcus Cannon was added to the active roster from the reserve/non-football injury list on Tuesday, which was the deadline for players who started the season on the PUP list to be activated. He has completed his recovery from an unexpected bout with cancer, and the team has now deemed him sufficiently healthy to be elevated to the active 53-man roster.

Cannon had been practicing with the team, during the three-week window that may be opened between Week Six and Week Nine. The deadline for making a move with him was approaching.

To make room for Cannon, the New England Patriots released safety Ross Ventrone.

Last month after he returned to practice, the 23-year-old Cannon said he never considered life without football.

Cannon's treatments were in Fort Worth, Texas, and it turns out that was one of the most challenging parts to his recovery.
Marshawn Lynch, Steven Hauschka good play in Seattle 22 win Baltimore 17
Lynch finished with 109 yards rushing and Seattle's lone touchdown, Steven Hauschka matched a franchise record with five field goals, and the Seahawks forced three turnovers in a 22-17 win.

Lynch became the first Seattle running back to record consecutive 100-yard rushing games since Julius Jones early in the 2008 season, following up on his 135 yards rushing last week against Dallas. Lynch carried a career-best 32 times, and most of those equaled short gains, but the types of yards Seattle needed against Baltimore Ravens' defense.

Hauschka kicked field goals of 22, 38, 39, 35 and 30 yards. Tarvaris Jackson was 17 of 27 for 217 yards, and Lynch had 109 yards rushing and another 58 receiving as Seattle snapped a three-game losing streak. The Seahawks also picked up their second victory over a division-leader this season after beating the New York Giants in early October.

These flops by the Ravens are rare occurrences since John Harbaugh took over as head coach in 2008. The latest was the fourth loss by the Baltimore Ravens against a sub-.500 team under Harbaugh, and two of them have been since Week 2.
Revis was added to injury report by Jets

New York Jets add cornerback Darrelle Revis to the list of the walking wounded.

Revis was not listed on the Jets injury report on Monday. Due to a knee injury Revis was limited in practice on Tuesday.

The star cornerback said his biggest challenge Thursday night -- and the challenge for the entire New York Jets secondary -- will be fighting boredom.

Revis sees Tebow as a bigger threat as a runner than passer, but he wouldn't go so far as to say the Denver Broncos can maintain long-term success with the read-option offense. He believes it takes a special player to run that system in the NFL.

Nonetheless, as the Jets ready for the Denver Broncos, Revis got in a few comments for Tim Tebow and the Broncos to chew on as the game looms on Thursday night. Revis said the Broncos run heavy offense with Tebow running a form of the option can "get boring" for defensive backs, according to the New York Daily News.

The New York Jets expect the Broncos (4-5) to run, and keep running -- the only reasonable conclusion, based on past performance. In last Sunday's 17-10 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, the Broncos ran on the first 14 plays and finished with an astounding 55 runs.

Revis said he can't afford to get lulled into a nap because the Broncos' receivers rely on double moves and Tebow, despite his accuracy issues, is capable of hitting the deep ball. He found Eric Decker last week for a 53-yard touchdown, which came on a double move.

Asked if the Denver Broncos offense with Tebow can be successful running the option, Revis replied, "Not for a whole season. We know what they're doing. And we feel comfortable in our game plan."

I don't know what the hell this is supposed to be, but you're clearly watching the wrong kind of football.
