National Football League roundup
(The Sports Xchange) - The five St. Louis Rams players who entered the field before Sunday's game with their hands in the air in a "don't shoot" pose in support of the nearby Ferguson, Mo., protests will not be fined for their actions.
The St. Louis Police Officers Association said the five Rams players who stood with their hands raised before Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders in St. Louis should be disciplined and the NFL should publicly apologize.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter will spend at least another night in a Houston hospital to undergo evaluation for a lacerated spleen.
Hunter spent Sunday night at the hospital after being injured during the Titans' 45-21 loss to the Houston Texans.
The NFL has told the players association in a letter that it will consider allowing someone other than commissioner Roger Goodell to impose discipline on players, the Washington Post reported.
At the same time, the league remains adamant that appeals of such decisions would continue to be resolved by Goodell or a person appointed by him.
