Ben­jamin lands with the Chiefs

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - Sports -

Kelvin Ben­jamin went from catch­ing passes from Josh Allen and Nathan Peter­man on a Bills team go­ing nowhere to haul­ing in heaves from Pa­trick Ma­homes on a Chiefs team bar­rel­ing to­ward the play­offs.

Ben­jamin signed a one-year con­tract with Kansas City on Fri­day to fin­ish out the sea­son, just days af­ter the 2014 first-round pick was re­leased by Buf­falo. It brought an end to yet an­other dis­ap­point­ing run in which Ben­jamin strug­gled with one of the high­est drop rates in the NFL.

Jets line­backer sus­pended: New York Jets line­backer Dar­ron Lee has been sus­pended four games by the NFL for vi­o­lat­ing its sub­stance abuse pol­icy.

The league an­nounced the sus­pen­sion Fri­day, a few hours af­ter the Jets com­pleted their last full prac­tice be­fore leav­ing for Buf­falo to play the Bills on Sun­day.

Jets mum on start­ing QB: The New York Jets’ start­ing quar­ter­back against the Buf­falo Bills is … still to be de­ter­mined.

All signs in­di­cate it will be rookie Sam Darnold un­der cen­ter af­ter he was a full par­tic­i­pant at prac­tice all week fol­low­ing miss­ing three games with a strained right foot. Coach Todd Bowles de­clined, how­ever, to an­nounce Fri­day whether it will be Darnold or Josh McCown.

For­mer Ram killed in car wreck: For­mer two-time All-Pro line­backer Isa­iah Robert­son was killed when the limou­sine he was driv­ing skid­ded on a rain-slicked curve on a dark, ru­ral East Texas high­way about 50 miles south­east of Dal­las and was hit by two other ve­hi­cles.

Robert­son, a 69-year-old Gar­land, Texas, res­i­dent, was taken to an Athens, Texas, hos­pi­tal 20 miles away, where he died.
