Ravens fire offensive coordinator
BALTIMORE -- Jim Fassel was fired as offensive coordinator of the Baltimore Ravens on Tuesday, a move designed by coach Brian Billick to get more firepower from the league's 28th-ranked attack.
The Ravens (4-2) scored only 10 offensive touchdowns in their first six games and were held to 16 points or fewer three times. Even though Baltimore sits atop the AFC North, Billick felt a change in the team's offensive philosophy was imperative.
Billick said he will assume the duties of offensive coordinator.
Colts trade for McFarland
INDIANAPOLIS -- For the second time in less than 14 months, the Indianapolis Colts brought in a bulky defensive tackle to stop the run, this time trading a 2007 second-round draft choice to Tampa Bay for Anthony McFarland.
The Colts announced the deal about one hour after Tuesday's trading deadline, but spokesman Craig Kelley said team officials would have no comment until today.
McFarland had been a major force during most of his eight seasons after the Bucs selected him with the 15th overall pick in the 1999 draft. He started 84 games and had 20 sacks for the Bucs, and had 13 tackles in five games this season.
McFarland, a 6-foot, 300-pound defensive tackle, should help reinforce the middle of the Colts' leaky run defense, which ranks last in the NFL.
Falcons' Lehr suspended
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons guard Matt Lehr was suspended four games by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Lehr, a fifth-round draft choice by the Dallas Cowboys in 2001, is part of an offensive unit that leads the NFL in rushing yardage. He'll be eligible to return to the Falcons' active roster on Nov. 13.
