ATLANTA'S Matt Ryan was limited in practice yesterday after taking a pounding against the Eagles on Sunday, but he'll be ready to go when the Falcons take on NFC South rival Tampa Bay.

If there's anything wrong with Tom Brady's throwing shoulder, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick isn't saying. Belichick said yesterday that Brady came out of Friday's game after a crushing hit from Washington defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth because it was time for the coaching staff to take a look at the backups. He lumped any problem with Brady's right shoulder into the category of normal "bumps and bruises" from a physical game. The team announced that he had a sore right shoulder.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers braced for life without Brian Griese yesterday, acquiring Tim Rattay from the San Francisco 49ers to back up young quarterbacks Chris Simms and Luke McCown. The Bucs sent what was believed to be a sixth-round draft choice to the 49ers for Rattay, a 6-year veteran who recently lost his caretaker hold on San Francisco's starting job to No. 1 overall draft pick Alex Smith. Griese injured his left knee during Sunday's victory over Miami, and the Bucs still haven't said how long he will be sidelined.

Sure, football players are tough. But if you cut them, will they not cry? The Washington Redskins released their longest-tenured player, tight end Chris "Captain Chaos" Cooley, on Tuesday, and the two-time Pro Bowler got a bit teary while saying goodbye. "I appreciate everything," Cooley said with a sniffle, his voice wobbly. "I'm sorry. I'm a baby. I appreciate everything you guys have done for me. " (Except for, you know, that release thing.) Coach Mike Shanahan said the decision came down to a matter of playing time.

But a lot of folks are going to have trouble with a player who boasts openly that he's going out on Sunday to hurt an opponent. Hall said he hoped Tony Romo plays for Dallas on Monday night - so he can put a helmet hit on the quarterback's broken ribs. "Absolutely. I want to get a chance to put my helmet on whatever hurts," the cornerback said.
