NFL Briefs PROSISE DONE FOR SEA­SON

The Denver Post - - SPORTS - — The As­so­ci­ated Press

SEATTLE» C.J. Prosise’s an­kle in­jury will end the run­ning back’s sec­ond sea­son with the Sea­hawks.

The team placed Prosise on in­jured re­serve Tues­day and pro­moted run­ning back Mike Davis from the prac­tice squad.

The Sea­hawks also an­nounced their sign­ing of By­ron Maxwell, a for­mer Seattle starter whose re­turn to the team adds cor­ner­back depth in the wake of Richard Sher­man’s sea­son-end­ing Achilles in­jury. Sher­man was placed on IR.

Sa­muel hurts an­kle.

Pan­thers rookie re­ceiver Cur­tis Sa­muel is out for the sea­son af­ter suf­fer­ing lig­a­ment dam­age in his left an­kle dur­ing Mon­day night’s win against Mi­ami.

The sec­ond-round pick will have surgery on the an­kle, but no date has yet been set for the pro­ce­dure.

Of­fi­cer de­fends de­ci­sion.

The NFL’s chief med­i­cal of­fi­cer is de­fend­ing the Colts’ treat­ment of quar­ter­back Ja­coby Bris­sett, who was al­lowed to re­turn to Sun­day’s game against the Steel­ers af­ter a hit to the back of his head.

Bris­sett was placed into the con­cus­sion pro­to­col when he re­ported symp­toms af­ter the game.

“All of our pro­to­cols were fol­lowed,” Dr. Allen Sills said. Sills added Bris­sett “had no symp­toms” and there were “no find­ings” dur­ing the game to pre­vent him from re­turn­ing to play.

Kel­ley, Comp­ton out.

The Red­skins lost two more starters for the sea­son. They placed run­ning back Rob Kel­ley and line­backer Will Comp­ton on in­jured re­serve.

Kel­ley suf­fered a high an­kle sprain and also sprained his left MCL, and Comp­ton suf­fered a Lis­franc sprain.

Jones won’t back down.

Cow­boys owner and gen­eral man­ager Jerry Jones said he will not back off the threat of su­ing the NFL and sev­eral own­ers if the com­pen­sa­tion com­mit­tee comes to an agree­ment with com­mis­sioner Roger Good­ell on an ex­ten­sion.

Jones was re­moved as an ad hoc mem­ber of the com­mit­tee when he brought up the pos­si­bil­ity of le­gal ac­tion. Good­ell’s con­tract is set to ex­pire af­ter the 2018 sea­son.
