Brackens Is Fined $10,000

October 27, 2000

The NFL fined Jacksonville defensive end Tony Brackens $10,000 for kicking Washington lineman Jay Leeuwenburg during last Sunday's game.

Brackens was ejected in the second quarter of Jacksonville's 35-16 loss to Washington. He kicked Leeuwenburg after emerging from the pile with a fumble recovery. Brackens said somebody in the pile twisted his arm behind his back.

Kansas City quarterback Elvis Grbac pronounced himself 100% after going through a full practice for the first time since bruising his right elbow during Sunday's victory over St. Louis.

Coach Gunther Cunningham said he was impressed with Grbac's workout and that the quarterback would start Sunday in Seattle.

Tennessee Coach Jeff Fisher said he's optimistic running back Eddie George will return to practice today.

George, questionable for Monday night's game against Washington because of a sprained ligament in his right knee, went through rehabilitation drills for about an hour Thursday.

Seattle starting quarterback Brock Huard was downgraded from questionable to doubtful for Sunday's game with Kansas City.

That means Huard has a 25% chance of playing against the Chiefs and that Jon Kitna will probably replace him. --Associated Press
