Late-breaking news from walk-throughs



Founding Houston Texans owner Robert (Bob) McNair died Friday. He had been battling cancer for several years. Two years after the Houston Oilers bolted for Tennessee, later to be renamed the Titans, McNair in the late 1990s led the move in Houston to obtain an NFL expansion franchise. The Texans began play in 2002.


Justin Herbert, regarded as possibly the No. 1 overall pick in next April’s NFL Draft, suffered what appeared to be a shoulder injury on Friday, as Herbert’s Oregon Ducks crushed the Oregon State Beavers 55-15. Herbert, a junior, left the game late after being sacked in the first half and did not return, after completing just 9-of-12 for 102 yards. Herbert grabbed his shoulder after the sack. He watched the game, without a sling, in street clothes from the Ducks sideline in the second half.


In 18 seasons as the New England Patriots’ starting quarterbac­k, the only games Tom Brady has missed because of injury came in 2008 — when he blew out an ACL in the opener and missed the rest of the season. But the 41-year-old is officially listed as questionab­le for today's game at the New York Jets. After being limited in practice this week with a knee injury, Brady missed Friday’s practice altogether with what the Patriots listed as both a knee injury and “illness.”
