  NFL fines Raiders players for COVID violation at charity event After already fining the Las Vegas Raiders twice for COVID-19 violations, the NFL is now imposing discipline on multiple Raiders’ players for attending teammate Darren Waller’s charity event without masks. © Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports The league launched an investigation last week after multiple Raiders’ players, including quarterback Derek Carr, were photographed without masks at The Darren Waller Foundation charity event in Henderson, Nev. On Monday, the NFL levied fines against all players who were at the fundraiser without masks.

Le ’ Veon Bell is the exception to that rule. The Steelers running back isn’ t one for urgency when it comes “That’ s a unique style — one that he ’ s kind of created. … He ’ s a good player ,” Reid said, via the team website. The obvious thing is you have to contain him and take care of your gaps, for sure.”

With rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushing for 161 yards on 26 carries Monday evening in Buffalo, it may not seem as though a big name running back was among the most pressing needs for the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs rushed for 245 yards on 46 carries in total in their 26-17 win over the Bills. Now that rushing attack gets to work former All-Pro rusher Le'Veon Bell into the mix starting this week. Bell officially signed with the Chiefs over the weekend after being let go by the New York Jets after repeated spats with head coach Adam Gase.

So why add Bell to the equation?

  Dabo Swinney: I'm not thinking about Texans job Swinney was connected to the Texans job immediately following word of O’Brien’s firing. The speculation made — and still makes — lots of sense. The Tigers head coach isn’t just close with Watson, he also has a good relationship with executive Jack Easterby, who is currently in charge of operations.Swinney famously compared Watson to Michael Jordan in the buildup to the 2017 draft, where the Texans landed him at No. 12 overall.

“We don’t turn away good players and he’s a good one,” head coach Andy Reid told reporters postgame. “It’s exciting to have him around and we’ll see how he does.”

Bell had just 74 yards on 19 carries in two games played for the Jets this season. Mired with the moribund Jets, Bell is also coming off the worst statistical full season of his career with 789 yards on 245 carries last season. But after Damien Williams‘ decision to opt out from the season in July, Bell adds some veteran presence to the backfield of Edwards-Helaire, Darrel Williams, DeAndre Washington and Darwin Thompson moving forward.

“He’s got to get in the playbook and learn everything but he’s a pretty smart kid and has been doing it a long time so I don’t think he’ll have a problem with that,” Reid said.

Bell is expected to make his debut for the Chiefs next week against the Denver Broncos.
