Mid-week news

Terrell Owens, WR. Owens suspension by Philadelphia was upheld and the Eagles aren't about to let the disgruntled wideout go play elsewhere. Too bad for Owens owners.

Chester Taylor, RB, Baltimore. As expected earlier in the week, Taylor will receive more carries as the team decides whether to re-sign him or Jamal Lewis, both of whom are to be unrestricted free agents.

Tatum Bell, RB, Denver. Bell told reporters he's "definitely" playing Thursday at Dallas.

Jef Garcia, QB, Detroit. Steve Mariucci has played it close to the vest this week with his quarterback situation, not saying if Garcia or Joey Harrington would get the start. Last week, the coach said Garcia's the starter when healthy. The two divided practice time Tuesday. Reporters weren't allowed in practice though, so who really knows. What a mess.

Samko Gado, RB, Green Bay. Samko, we hardly knew ya. Gado has had fumble problems and will likely lose playing time to Travis Fisher, who's healthy once again.

Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers. Roethlisberger was back working with the first-team offense Wednesday and appears to be a safe play against Indianapolis this week.
