Broncos’ Lloyd dealt to Rams for 2012 pick
Receiver coming off a career year
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Tim Tebow has lost his top target even before he makes his first start of the season.
The Denver Broncos traded Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Lloyd, the league’s leading receiver last year, to the St. Louis Rams on Monday for a conditional 2012 draft pick. Lloyd totaled 1,448 yards on a career-best 77 receptions.
The move comes a week after Tebow supplanted Kyle Orton at quarterback and six days before Tebow’s first start at Miami.
Backup A.J. Feeley likely will take the majority of the snaps with the first team when the Rams return to practice on Wednesday.
Harbaugh handshake creates stir around NFL
SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Jim Harbaugh’s aggressive, second-long handshake and back slap with Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz has talk radio all atwitter, and Twitter, too.
San Francisco’s emotional first-year coach is winning, and celebrating the team’s turnaround in his unique style - even if he rubs people the wrong way in the process. The Niners are 5-1 heading into their bye week after a 25-19 victory over the previously unbeaten Lions.
“It’s something you don’t see every game. As a player, I was kind of pumped up about it,” left tackle Joe Staley said, chucking. “They weren’t fighting, they were just getting after it.”
Yet back in the locker room fter the skirmish, the coach told his players he wished it hadn’t happened and taken the focus off their monumental victory.
Raiders’ Campbell might be back this season
ALAMEDA, Calif. — Oakland Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell had surgery on his broken collarbone and said there was a chance he could be back in six weeks.
Campbell was injured during the first half of Oakland’s win over Cleveland on Sunday when he landed hard on his shoulder at the end of a scramble.
He was replaced by Kyle Boller, who struggled in his first action of the season. The only other quarterback on Oakland’s roster is rookie Terrelle Pryor, who was officially activated Monday after a five-game suspension and one-week roster exemption.
