INDIANAPOLIS - Tyrann Mathieu said he has not smoked marijuana since Oct. 26, 2012. Mathieu, an all-American defensive back at Louisiana State in 2011, did not play last season after disciplinary problems related to marijuana use prompted a suspension and eventually an arrest on a possession charge. He entered a drug rehabilitation program and now hopes to repair his image, secure a spot in the NFL, and resist the temptations that put his career in jeopardy. "I've been through it. I know what it's like not to have football," Mathieu said Sunday at the NFL scouting combine.

No doubt scouts are still talking about an impressive group of defensive backs who took the field Tuesday as the NFL scouting combine ended in Indianapolis. According to NFL.com, evaluators saw standout performances that enhanced the value of several top prospects at the cornerback position. Dee Milliner of Alabama, the top-rated corner, answered questions about his speed and quickness with a remarkable 4.37-second effort in the 40-yard dash. Tyrann Mathieu of LSU also impressed with a time of 4.5 in the 40.   "Me time" for Nnamdi Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha ate lunch in his car during practices instead of eating with his teammates last season, WIP-AM (610)

BATON ROUGE, La. - Heisman Trophy finalist Tyrann Mathieu was kicked off Louisiana State's football team Friday for breaking an athletic department rule, a blow to the Tigers' national championship hopes three weeks before their season opener. The junior defensive back - nicknamed Honey Badger for his tenacious style, small stature (5-foot-9, 175 pounds), and blond streak of hair - rose from obscurity to become one of college football's biggest stars last season. He was a sleeper Heisman candidate as the Tigers won the Southeastern Conference championship and reached the BCS title game.

The Tigers (7-1, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) scored the first 35 points in their fourth consecutive win and fourth straight in the series with the Demon Deacons (4-4, 2-4)

NEW YORK - Manti Te'o is headed to San Diego. The Notre Dame all-America linebacker was chosen sixth in the second round by the Chargers, drawing a loud roar from the fans at Radio City Music Hall for the NFL draft. Early in Friday's proceedings, the big names had taken over from the bulk and beef of opening night, when 18 linemen went in the first round. Te'o, who led the Fighting Irish to the national championship game, was projected as a first-rounder last year. But his poor performance in a rout at the hands of Alabama, some slow workouts, and a tabloid-ready hoax involving a fake girlfriend that became a national soap opera dropped his stock.

TEDDY Bridgewater came off the bench to throw two-second half touchdown passes, and John Wallace kicked a 29-yard field goal with 1:41 left to send Louisville to a BCS bowl with a 20-17 victory against Rutgers on Thursday night. Bridgewater came into the game in the second quarter. Last week, he broke his left, nonthrowing, wrist and sprained his right ankle in a loss to Connecticut. The Cardinals (10-2, 5-2), who announced Wednesday they are leaving for the ACC, will be going to a BCS bowl for the second time, first since 2006.

ALABAMA IS THE new No. 1 in the Associated Press college football poll, moving past Southern California after its resounding victory against Michigan. The Crimson Tide swayed more than enough voters with its 41-14 win Saturday night in Texas to overtake the preseason No. 1 Trojans, who beat Hawaii, 49-10. USC entered that game a 40-point favorite at home. The Tide received 45 first-place votes, up 28 from last week. USC drew 11 first-place votes and No. 3 LSU four. It's the 47th time Alabama has been No. 1, the 16th under coach Nick Saban.

IF BRUCE ARIANS is a man of his word, and if he speaks with candor today, his day-after press conference could reverberate through the league. Four spurious calls went against his Cardinals in the final 4 minutes of their 24-21 loss in Philadelphia. Two penalties on Arizona took away an interception and a sack. Two non-calls stalled the Cards' last drive. Things went so badly, Arians must have thought he was still coaching Temple. "I can't make any comments on officiating . . . until I watch the tape," Arians said.

The football had left Nick Foles' hand and ended up in Patrick Peterson's grasp, and all of Lincoln Financial Field went silent for a heartbeat - about 69,000 people choking on their collective disbelief. This was late in the fourth quarter of a game the Eagles seemed reluctant to finish off Sunday. They had led the Arizona Cardinals by 17 points, but they led by just three when Foles committed the one mistake he hadn't committed in this enchanted season of his. He finally had thrown an interception, and it was going to cost the Eagles a victory, and in that moment, everyone here knew it. Except it didn't.

THE ROAD back for Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III began yesterday at an offseason practice. Wearing a helmet but no jersey, and sporting a large brace on his reconstructed right knee, Griffin did some handoffs and throws with other teammates recovering from injuries. It's the latest step toward his goal of playing in the season opener, Sept. 9 against the visiting Eagles. "As soon as I woke up out of the surgery, I put the date of the first game in my phone," Griffin said.
