NFL notes: Andy Reid stoic about return to Philadelphia
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Andy Reid cleared his throat, uttered some familiar phrases and downplayed his return to Philadelphia.

Same old Andy.

"That's not where I'm at right now," Reid said when asked if it's going to be emotional when his Kansas City Chiefs (2-0) play the Eagles (1-1) on Thursday night.

"I don't feel that way. If we weren't playing a football game against a good football team, maybe your mind goes there. I don't see my mind going there. My mind is going to be on the job at hand and what we've got to get accomplished in a tough place to play."

Clearly, Reid is still a stoic guy. But he also has to be aware of the spicy plot in which he is the centerpiece?

Reid led the Eagles to nine playoff appearances, six division titles, five NFC championship games and one Super Bowl before he was fired after going 4-12 last year in his 14th season.

While he's off to an excellent start with the Chiefs, who were 2-14 last year, Chip Kelly has reinvigorated the Eagles and their fans with his fast-paced offense and all-around energy.

"I have great respect for Andy," Kelly said. "If you're a coach in the NFL, anybody head coaches in one spot for 14 years, you kind of look to them and say, 'Holy Smokes!' If you just walk down these hallways and look at the championships, the division championships, the conference championships, what he's done, he's had a huge impact on this organization.

"There's not a lot of guys out there in this profession that carry themselves, from a coaching standpoint, when you get a chance to be around them, like Andy Reid."

Browns trade RB Richardson to Colts

The Cleveland Browns traded running back Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts in a surprise move less than two years after drafting him in the first round.

The Browns (0-2), struggling on offense under new coach Rob Chudzinski, announced the move Wednesday afternoon. They will also bring in veteran running back Willis McGahee for a physical.

Cleveland receives a first-round pick in next year's draft for Richardson, who has struggled with injuries since a standout career at Alabama. He was the No. 3 overall pick in 2012.

Around the league

Broncos • Denver placed left tackle Ryan Clady on season-ending injured reserve. Clady will soon undergo surgery for what's being called a Lisfranc tear, which involves a separation of ligaments and joints in the foot.

Buccaneers • Safety Dashon Goldson's one-game suspension for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Darren Sproles of New Orleans has been reduced to a $100,000 fine.

Browns • With Brandon Weeden out with a sprained thumb, third-string QB Brian Hoyer was shockingly named the starter for Sunday's game at Minnesota.

Titans • The NFL fined safety Bernard Pollard $42,000 for his hit on Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson, who suffered a concussion on the play.

Bengals • Cincinnati bolstered its defensive secondary for its upcoming game against Green Bay, signing free-agent cornerback and Utah State product Curtis Marsh. —
