MOBILE, Ala. - Denard Robinson's transition to wide receiver includes some new habits and adjustments. The former Michigan quarterback has to get better at running routes and getting separation, but he's not about to start tying his shoes. At Ann Arbor, Mich., Robinson was known for his speed, long runs, and untied shoes. All those traits have been on display heading into Saturday's Senior Bowl. Robinson insisted he's not about to start tying his shoes, but everything else about his game is changing.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Eagles have lost 12 games for only the third time in franchise history, and Andy Reid is expected to pay the price for that failure Monday by being fired. But after Sunday's ugly, 42-7, season-ending loss to the Giants, veteran wide receiver Jason Avant said the problem with the Eagles is not the head coach. It's the players. "It's not a coach Reid thing," Avant said. "It's a player-personality and character problem. I'm talking about guys [not]

A euphoric Eagles locker room buzzed in the minutes before midnight on Sept. 30. The Eagles had just won their third game in four weeks, this time after the Giants missed consecutive field goals in a victory that gave the Eagles the lead in the NFC East. In a make-or-break season for Andy Reid, the auspicious first month raised optimism in the NovaCare Complex. Players sounded confident. Coaches appeared relieved. The problems that were apparent even in wins - turnovers and injuries, specifically - were mere obstacles to be rectified.

THERE IS usually very little debate over the best fantasy player in a given year. Runaway winners have generally been the norm the last 10 seasons. Whether it was Aaron Rodgers last year, LaDainian Tomlinson in 2006, or Priest Holmes in 2003, voting for the fantasy MVP is usually academic. Tom Brady won the 2007 award with 50 touchdown passes and 87 percent of the vote. This year is different. In the closest voting ever, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson nudged out Brady and Peyton Manning for the most valuable fantasy player.

The San Francisco 49ers will play the rest of the season without receiver Mario Manningham, meaning 35-year-old Randy Moss will start Sunday against the 5-10 Arizona Cardinals. Manningham suffered torn ligaments in his left knee during Sunday night's 42-13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reported Tuesday that Manningham is scheduled for season-ending surgery and might not be ready for the start of next year's training camp. Moss has had a positive presence but not too many receptions in his return from a one-season hiatus.

Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox sustained a concussion in the Birds' 27-20 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday, making the rookie first-round pick the fourth Eagles starter to suffer the injury this season. Quarterback Michael Vick, running back LeSean McCoy, and tight end Brent Celek have all missed games this season with concussions. There was no word on Cox's status for Sunday's game at the New York Giants, and the Eagles put their players through a rigorous five-step concussion-recovery process.
