BEREA, Ohio (AP) Myles Garrett high-stepped through a stretching drill, turned and winked at cameras chronicling his every move.

Nine days after he walked away from a car crash, Garrett seemed excited to be back practicing with the Browns.

Cleveland's All-Pro defensive end returned to the field Wednesday for the first time since sustaining several injuries when he lost control while speeding, veered off the road and flipped his Porsche.


Giants' Jones likely game-time decision

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Quarterback Daniel Jones' sprained left ankle has improved and he practiced on a limited basis Wednesday as the New York Giants started preparations for a game in London against the Green Bay Packers this weekend.

Coach Brian Daboll seemed encouraged his quarterback was responding to treatment. Jones said he felt good when he was on the field.


Banged-up Brady misses Bucs' practice

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers began preparations for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons without Tom Brady and coach Todd Bowles on the practice field.

Brady did not participate Wednesday after taking a hard hit on his throwing shoulder when he was sacked by Kansas City cornerback L'Jarius Sneed and fumbled during last Sunday night's 41-31 loss to the Chiefs.


Commanders RB Robinson back practicing

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) The moment doctors told Brian Robinson Jr. he would be able to play football again after being shot in an attempted robbery, his thoughts shifted to what it would take to get back on the field. Then he followed through on that path.

Robinson recovered so quickly from two gun shot wounds to his right leg that he practiced with the Washington Commanders on Wednesday, just over five weeks since the shooting.


Protester files report vs. Rams' Wagner

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) A protester who ran onto the field during the San Francisco 49ers' Monday night home game against the Rams has filed a police report after being subdued by Los Angeles linebacker Bobby Wagner.

Santa Clara Police Department Lt. Cuong Phan confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday that the department has an active investigation of the incident, which meant he could provide few other details. Wagner reacted with bemusement when asked about the protester's complaint, which was made Tuesday.


Beasley retires after 2 weeks with Bucs

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Veteran receiver Cole Beasley retired Wednesday after a two-week stint with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Beasley, who played most of an 11-season NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys, was signed to the Bucs practice squad to fill a need at receiver while Mike Evans was a serving a one-game suspension and Chris Godwin and Julio Jones were out with injuries.


Pats' Zappe preps for possible 1st start

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Four days after Bailey Zappe made his NFL debut, the rookie Patriots quarterback responded like a veteran when asked whether he expects to make his first start this week.

"If that's what happens, that happens," Zappe said Wednesday. "That's (for) coach (Bill) Belichick. That's a question for him. I'm not going to get into those details."


Panthers S Chinn out at least 4 games

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Carolina Panthers defense suffered a setback on Wednesday, as safety Jeremy Chinn was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury.

Chinn, a key player in Phil Snow's defense, will miss at least four games. He was injured in the first quarter of Carolina's 26-16 loss to the Arizona Cardinals and did not return. He was seen on the sideline with his right thigh heavily wrapped.


Bears' Whitehair to IR, Harry improving

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) The Chicago Bears placed left guard Cody Whitehair on injured reserve Wednesday because of a right knee injury.

The 30-year-old Whitehair was injured in Sunday's loss to the New York Giants. He has been a fixture on the Bears' line at center and guard since they drafted him in the second round in 2016, starting 99 games.


Rhule confident as pressure mounts

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Matt Rhule remains confident he can turn around the Carolina Panthers even as pressure mounts on the team's third-year coach to win.

Rhule is 11-26 so far in three seasons with the Panthers, and the team is off to another rocky start (1-3) with their offense ranked last in the league despite the offseason addition of 2018 No. 1 pick Baker Mayfield.
