With Andy Dalton taken care of, the Bengals are moving on to other business.

A medical evaluation given to Bills quarterback Jim Kelly on Tuesday found “no evidence” of cancer, a doctor at the Manhattan hospital where Kelly has been treated said Wednesday afternoon. “The great news is that upon physical examination, there is no evidence of the cancer,” said Dr. Peter Costantino, the executive director of the New…
The sight of ice bucket challenges has become common across NFL training camps, but in Tennessee, it had a little more meaning Wednesday.

Jim Kelly shows no evidence of sinus cancer three months after the Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame quarterback completed radiation and chemotherapy treatments. Dr. Peter Costantino says in a release issued by New York City's Lenox Hill Hospital that the treatments have ''completely eliminated'' any pain Kelly was experiencing. He says Kelly's level of function has ''essentially returned to normal.'' The statement was issued Wednesday, a day after Kelly visited the hospital for a follow-up examination. The cancer then spread to his sinus.
Robert Griffin III stood at his locker and answered five consecutive questions about sliding. ''I could keep going over this, over and over,'' the Washington Redskins quarterback said with a touch of good-natured exasperation. ''Gah! I slid correctly on the third time.'' Coach Jay Gruden also faced five questions about Griffin's far-from-graceful sliding technique. Griffin on Wednesday acknowledged that he put himself on the line a bit too much when he took some big hits while scrambling in open field against the Cleveland Browns on Monday night.

Reviews have been mixed around the league for the NFL's experiment with longer kicks on extra points. NFL officiating director Dean Blandino says he believes longer PAT kicks are ''in the league's near future.'' The results this preseason will be brought to the competition committee, and a proposal for change almost certainly will be presented to team owners at next March's annual meetings. San Francisco's veteran placekicker Phil Dawson didn't get a chance to try a long extra point because the 49ers didn't score any touchdowns in their first two exhibition games.
Johnny Manziel waved both arms as if he was quieting the home crowd before a big play. Beaten out by Brian Hoyer to be Cleveland's starter, the Browns rookie quarterback said Wednesday that he's disappointed he won't be on the field against Pittsburgh in the season opener on Sept. 7. Manziel knows he didn't do enough during training camp and the preseason to convince coach Mike Pettine to choose him over Hoyer, who overcame a serious knee injury and then held off the first-round draft pick to keep the job. ''I shouldn't be in the spotlight.'' It always seems to find Manziel though, and that…
