Cowboys •Jay Ratliff’s mysterious and rapid decline with Dallas has ended with his release. The Cowboys unloaded their apparently disgruntled defensive tackle, saying he failed a physical after spending the first six weeks of the season on the physically unable to perform list.
Lions • Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was docked $31,500 by the league for a hit on Cleveland quarterback Brandon Weeden, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press. Suh wasn’t penalized for his latest act that drew discipline, but it was shown on a video posted on NFL.com as vice president of officiating Dean Blandino said he wanted to look at it more for "potential helmet to the body."
Bears • Wide receiver Brandon Marshall says he has been fined $10,500 by the NFL for wearing green football shoes in the Oct. 10 game against the New York Giants. Marshall had said before last Thursday’s game he was wearing the shoes to attract attention to Mental Health Awareness Week. Marshall has been treated for a personality disorder in the past. Marshall said he had planned to match any fine with a donation to his foundation, which supports mental health awareness. He said he also plans to auction off the shoes and donate the proceeds to charity.
Rams • Offensive tackle Rodger Saffold has returned to practice after missing a month with a knee injury. Saffold says he got limited work and wasn’t sure about his status for this week. He injured his left knee in the opener against Arizona.
Giants • New York signed veteran running back Peyton Hillis. Hillis, who fills a void in the backfield, is a six-year veteran with a 1,000-yard season on his résumé. He has played for Denver, Cleveland and Kansas City, and has 2,470 yards and 21 touchdowns for his career.
