Wednesday news and notes

Aaron Brooks, QB, Saints. A couple of days after ripping owner Tom Benson, Brooks is being replaced by Todd Bouman as the team's starting quarterback. Head coach Jim Haslett said the demotion had nothing to do with Brooks' tirade at Benson. And if you believe that, I've got some good riverfront property to sell you in New Orleans.

Neil Rackers, PK, Arizona. It looks like Rackers will be back this week. Get him in the lineup.

Michael Vick, QB, Atlanta. Vick has vowed to play this week against the Bears despite sore ribs.

J.P. Losman, QB, Buffalo. Losman has been unable to practice this week and Kelly Holcomb will be in the starting lineup for the Bills against Denver.

Tom Brady, QB, New England. Brady is questionable this week with shoulder and shin injuries, though getting information out of New England is difficult.

Chris Brown, RB, Tennessee. Brown missed practice Wednesday with an elbow injury. Travis Henry was also out with an ankle injury.

Fred Taylor, RB, Jacksonville. Taylor may have a reduced role the rest of the season as the team looks at Greg Jones, who has been more effective in recent weeks.

Kerry Collins, QB, Oakland. After a one-week benching, Collins is back in the starting lineup for Oakland.

Darrell Jackson, WR, Seattle. Jackson is back at practice this week full-time and could see some action this week. Don't expect much right away.
