LAKE FOREST, Ill. - Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall criticized former NFL star Warren Sapp for calling him a "retard" in a radio interview. Marshall, who has been treated for borderline personality disorder and anger management, fired back Monday in an online video. "I got a really disturbing heads-up on something Warren Sapp said, called me retarded. That's really disappointing to hear that from an NFL legend, but I'm going to take this as a lesson, and I think we all can learn from this," Marshall said in the video.

IN WEEK 1, the Eagles were torched by Julio Jones in a loss to Atlanta. Last week, they escaped having to face injured Dez Bryant, but still lost to Dallas. On Sunday, they get Brandon Marshall. The only thing more disappointing than an 0-3 Eagles start would be if Pope Francis woke up today and decided he wasn't coming to Philadelphia after all. Think of it. All of those cars towed for nothing. Eagles cornerback Nolan Carroll played two seasons in Miami with Marshall, who leads the Jets with 13 catches and 19 targets through two games.

8:30, Invesco Field. TV: ESPN. Steelers by 3. The skinny: Pittsburgh (5-2) had a bye after its big win over Minnesota in Week 7. Denver (6-1) is coming off a 30-7 stomping by Baltimore. It's the first adversity Josh McDaniels has faced since the Brandon Marshall saga in the off-season. That worked out well; Marshall has had a decent season. Mike Tomlin's team has won four in a row after a two-game losing streak.

Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals: Ran an offseason camp in his hometown near Minneapolis that attracted a number of current players, plus retired guys Jerry Rice and Cris Carter. Fitzgerald takes being football's best wide receiver seriously. Andre Johnson, Texans: Love the chemistry he's developed with Matt Schaub. In fact, because Houston has a more reliable quarterback, bump Andre Johnson ahead of Calvin Johnson. Randy Moss, Patriots: If you start your team with a high pick at running back, getting Moss late in the second round isn't so bad; early third round is even better.

Dallas Cowboys receiver Roy Williams injured his left shoulder on a goal-line collision with cornerback Orlando Scandrick during an open practice at the team's new stadium last night. Williams was down for longer than normal, then was examined by athletic trainers. He shouted in anger as he headed into the locker room. Immediately after the workout - which was conducted wearing helmets, but not pads - coach Wade Phillips said he didn't know the extent of the injury. The practice drew 26,460 fans, all let in free but charged $10 to park.

HONOLULU - Brandon Marshall caught six passes for 176 yards and a Pro Bowl-record four touchdowns, and the AFC used a second-half surge to beat the NFC, 59-41, on Sunday. The Miami Dolphins wide receiver had a touchdown catch in each quarter, including an early 74-yarder and a 3-yarder in the fourth, in a game filled with highlight-reel catches. He was selected the game's MVP. His four TD catches set a Pro Bowl record. The 59 points by the AFC set a Pro Bowl mark, and the 100 points scored by the two teams combined was the second highest, a touchdown shy of the 107 scored in 2004.

The story of Oakland receiver Javon Walker is disturbing enough by itself: beaten, robbed and left unconscious in the street. But it may hold echoes of an earlier - deadlier - attack on an NFL player. Walker was discovered early Monday morning, unconscious and beaten on a back street near the Las Vegas Strip following a night of partying. He since has been released from a Vegas hospital after treatment for a concussion and facial injuries. A Las Vegas police spokesman said a large amount of cash and expensive jewelry were taken from Walker, who was photographed earlier in the fateful evening spraying a nightclub crowd with champagne.

The Tennessee Titans called police for help searching for Vince Young because his therapist told coach Jeff Fisher the quarterback mentioned suicide several times before driving away from his home with a gun. Both Fisher and Young have said what happened Monday night was overblown by the media. But the supplemental report filed Tuesday by Nashville police showed that Fisher was worried what his quarterback might be doing after the call from Young's therapist. "I asked him, 'What made her worry about him?

Judging from the success of the Denver Broncos through the first three weeks of the season, it seemed as if the Kansas City Chiefs were in danger of extending their lengthy regular-season losing streak. But thanks to a long run by Larry Johnson early in the game, the Chiefs built some confidence and wound up winning for the first time in more than 11 months. Johnson, the former Penn State star who had complained two weeks ago that he was being phased out of the offense, rushed for 198 yards and two touchdowns yesterday to lead the Chiefs to a 33-19 upset of the Broncos.

WANT TO KNOW why Walter Thurmond has transformed this Eagles secondary? Fast forward the tape of Sunday's win to the latter stages of the first quarter. It is a play you no doubt remember: The Jets line up in trips right, throw a swing pass to Brandon Marshall, and then lose 8 yards as Malcolm Jenkins tosses his blocker aside and flings the ballcarrier backward by the waist. This was second-and-9 at the Eagles' 48, Jets on the verge of moving into field-goal range while trailing, 3-0. Jenkins didn't need any help, but look at the second Eagle on the scene as Marshall spins to the ground.

Quick: Where will Reggie Bush be taking handoffs this season? Whose uniform is Brandon Marshall now wearing? Which city's fans will Percy Harvin disappoint this year? Once again, before we can get serious about another year of fantasy draft prep, we must pause to examine the NFL's shifted landscape. Heck, I've been tracking all the offseason moves on the Fantasy Fools blog since February, and I'm a lifelong Dolphins fan; but until I started writing this week's column, I had forgotten that my hometown team had acquired once-and-hopefully future fantasy stud Jordan Cameron to upgrade the tight end position.

TIGER WOODS said yesterday he doesn't know when he will return to golf, and questioned at one point whether he'd ever play again. Speaking at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md., in his role as host of next month's Quicken Loans National, Woods said his back injury became so debilitating this year it caused him to doubt his ability to play golf again. "Forget about playing golf at the highest level. I couldn't get out of bed," Woods said. "I was certainly doubtful at that point.

THE EAGLES' secondary still doesn't match up well against the deepest group of receivers the Eagles will have seen this season, but getting Brandon Boykin back certainly is a step in the right direction. Boykin, the Eagles' second-year nickel cornerback, suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss at Minnesota, returning a kickoff. That might be why the Birds spent much of the year having Damaris Johnson run straight at tacklers, even though Boykin has better vision - the Eagles' playoff chances could have been stretched out on the dingy Metrodome carpet along with Boykin, given the struggles of the two outside guys, Cary Williams and Brandon Fletcher, and the lack of an experienced backup for the slot.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. - Brandon Marshall has almost 1,200 receiving yards for Chicago this season to go along with 10 touchdowns as he seeks his fifth career Pro Bowl appearance. He also has been overshadowed. Second-year receiver Alshon Jeffery has eclipsed Marshall in his second season in Chicago with 1,265 receiving yards and seven touchdowns, including highlight-reel scores in Chicago's last three games. The receiving combination is one of the main reasons the Bears are on the verge of rewriting their team offensive record book and in position to win the NFC North.

NFL Week 8 is going to be the most challenging of the season for a significant number of fantasy enthusiasts. A rash of serious injuries to key players on Sunday, combined with six idle teams - the Ravens, Bears, Texans, Colts, Chargers and Titans - will make filling out a decent starting lineup painfully difficult for those with shallow benches. At least Jay Cutler (groin), Arian Foster (hamstring), Ben Tate and Brandon Marshall (undisclosed) will have an extra week to mend their wounds, though the initial prognosis for Cutler's immediate return is not encouraging.

POOR CHAD JOHNSON. Earlier this month he was cut by the Miami Dolphins. And on Thursday, he found out he'd been cut by Madden 13 too. "That awkward moment when you realize you're not on Madden13 and have to create yourself . . . " Johnson tweeted to his followers. Actually, the athlete formerly known as Chad Ochocinco is part of Madden 13. He has just been moved to the free-agent pool. In a somewhat related story, the Dolphins seem hell-bent on signing a receiver familiar with the arrest process.
