Cleveland Brown quarterback Tim Couch fractured his right thumb on the final play of practice Thursday and will be out at least six weeks. Couch was following through on a 25-yard fade pass to rookie Dennis Northcutt into the right corner of the end zone when his hand banged into the hand of linebacker Ryan Taylor. "He'll need surgery and he'll miss at least six games," said dejected Brown Coach Chris Palmer.

WASHINGTON - A strong fundraising push and a light presence on the airwaves enabled Restore Our Future, the “super PAC” backing Mitt Romney, to end September with replenished coffers, setting the stage for its October spending blitz. The group pulled in $14.8 million and spent just $4.1 million on ads, ending the month with $16.6 million in the bank, according to filings submitted Friday to the Federal Election Committee. That's a much healthier cash outlook than Restore Our Future's previous month; in August, the group spent three times as much as it took in and ended the month with just $6.3 million on hand.

NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue said Thursday the league will still honor a Sept. 15 deadline, and based on what it has learned by that date, vote Oct. 6 to award an expansion franchise to either Houston or Los Angeles. He said no one has the lead in this dragged-out race. He said the league remains very interested in meeting with invited Los Angeles groups, and will do so Monday in New York. He said a delay in making a final determination between Houston and Los Angeles is unlikely.

Right now, trainer Bob Baffert doesn't care which horse is better. "Congaree's got as much talent as Point Given," he said Saturday. "In three weeks, we'll find out who wants it more." The "it" is the Kentucky Derby, which will be run May 5 at Churchill Downs with Baffert holding most of the trump cards.

I stopped by Angel Stadium the other night figuring Mike Scioscia and I might catch a cup of coffee and spend some time discussing my fantasy baseball team. I find it's taking a lot of my time, and Scioscia has plenty of that. As loaded as the Angels are this season, Scioscia has nothing to do these days other than sit in the corner of the dugout and pat his players on the back after they return from crossing the plate.

They could have used shovels for the groundbreaking, but this called for Texas flair. The guests fired Colt .45 pistols into a vacant lot, marking the start of Harris County Domed Stadium, otherwise known as the Astrodome. The man behind the project, Judge Roy Hofheinz, modestly suggested the stadium be dubbed the Eighth Wonder of the World. That was 34 years and several facelifts ago. Now the Astrodome is losing its oldest tenant.

The Carolina Panthers announced the dismissal of Coach John Fox on Friday, signaling the end of a nine-year run in which he led the franchise to its only Super Bowl. Owner Jerry Richardson said the contracts of Fox and the rest of his staff wouldn't be renewed after Sunday's game at Atlanta. Fox said he expected the firing. "It's not new," he said. "It's something I've been preparing for actually for a couple of years. " Fox was first denied a contract extension after the 2008 season.

Had they been buying the Rams or Raiders, a 72-hour grace period providing for buyer's remorse might have been appropriate, but the team of Alfred Lerner and Carmen Policy has been given permission by the NFL to write a $530-million check to buy the new Cleveland Browns franchise. Former Browns' owner Art Modell, who moved his team to Baltimore three years ago, paid $4 million for the original Cleveland franchise in 1961.

The NFL's top X-factors are now ex-factors. Chicago returner Devin Hester will be a spectator this postseason. Same goes for Houston's Andre Davis, Cleveland's Josh Cribbs, Buffalo's Roscoe Parrish and the New York Jets' Leon Washington -- the leaders in what was a record season for returns for touchdowns in the NFL. There were 25 kickoff returns for touchdowns this season and a combined 42 scores on kickoff and punt returns.
