-- Ray McDonald Arested for Domestic Violence --
Sun Aug 31, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

The San Francisco Chronicle reports 49ers DT Ray McDonald has been arrested for domestic violence. The 49ers did not immediately respond for comment. Santa Clara County records show McDonald, 29, who was also arrested for DUI in 2010, was booked early this morning. No bail has been set. This week, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell instituted harsher penalties for all league employees involved in assault, battery, domestic violence or sexual assault. First-time offenders will receive a six-game suspension. A second offense will result in a lifetime ban. Goodell adopted the harsher penalties after he suspended Ravens RB Ray Rice for two games in July for knocking his then-fiancee unconscious, a punishment Goodell acknowledged was too lenient. McDonald, who has started 45 of 48 games since 2011, is an integral part of a defense that will open the season without a pair of All-Pro linebackers in LB Aldon Smith and LB NaVarro Bowman.

Fri Aug 29, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports Cincinnati Bengals rookie RB Jeremy Hill handled the extra work very well last night. With the Bengals sitting four running backs, Hill rushed 20 times for 90 yards and caught six passes for 70 yards. Afterwards, HC Marvin Lewis explained why the second-round pick from LSU got so many reps. “Well, Jeremy has to understand what it’s like to be an NFL running back. We aren’t five deep,” Lewis said, according to a transcript from the club. “When we get to Sundays and we go down to 46 guys, and if he’s going to be the guy, then he’s going to have to be able to shoulder the load. You can get some good conditioning out here tonight. He’s going to learn to run with his pads down and protect the football. They were good snaps for him to learn with tonight.”
