National Football League roundup
(The Sports Xchange) - Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, who was involved in a violent collision with San Diego Chargers cornerback Brandon Flowers while scoring a touchdown but stayed in Sunday's game, now admits that maybe he had symptoms of a concussion.
"It definitely hurt," Charles said during an interview with ESPN Radio on Tuesday. "It's like, I woke up -- I mean, like, a couple plays later I was seeing light bulbs, like, light bulbs around my eyes, and I was trying to catch them. But I was in the game so I was like, 'All right, let's get the ball and run again.'"
New England Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis showed up late for work on Tuesday and coach Bill Belichick promptly sent him home, The Boston Globe reported.
When Revis did not arrive on time for a 7:30 a.m. meeting, Belichick wouldn't allow him to participate in practice. A day later, Revis was back at practice but wouldn't discuss the reason for his absence.
The Patriots officially acquired linebacker Akeem Ayers on Wednesday in a trade with the Tennessee Titans.
Trade terms were not disclosed, but it was reported Tuesday that the trade includes the Patriots giving up a sixth-round draft choice to the Titans for Ayers and Tennessee's seventh-round pick.
