'One wonderful thing about Rex is that if you jerked him out of a game, he wouldn't pout. He doesn't complain. He always figures, "Maybe Coach had a reason to take me out, and maybe I'll be back in there pretty soon."

Robert Griffin III was ready to go -- all dressed out in full pads, brace on his knee, fully warmed up for the Washington Redskins' "Monday Night Football" exhibition game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Of course, the star quarterback had already been told there was no chance of him playing in any exhibition games as he recovers from off-season knee surgery. But that didn't stop Coach Mike Shanahan from having a little fun at RG3's expense. When backup quarterback Kirk Cousins went down with a foot injury during the first quarter, Shanahan momentarily floored Griffin by gesturing toward the field and asking if he wanted to give it a shot.

CHICAGO -- Rex Grossman dived into the end zone, then ran to the side and spiked the ball. He had something to celebrate and the Chicago Bears had reason to exhale. Grossman came off the bench to replace injured quarterback Kyle Orton and scored the go-ahead touchdown with 5:36 left, helping the Bears rally from a 10-point deficit for a 27-23 victory over the winless Detroit Lions.

OAKLAND -- With one perfect deep pass, Rex Grossman might have won back his starting quarterback job and saved the Chicago Bears' season. Grossman replaced an injured Brian Griese and threw a 59-yard pass to Bernard Berrian for the go-ahead score with 3:11 remaining, leading the Bears to a 17-6 victory over the Oakland Raiders.

CHICAGO -- Rex Grossman reportedly will be benched by the Chicago Bears for Sunday's game at Detroit, with Brian Griese starting at quarterback. Citing unidentified sources, NFL.com, the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times reported Tuesday that the beleaguered Grossman would sit when the Bears (1-2) visit the Lions (2-1). The Bears would not confirm that any decision has been made, saying only that Coach Lovie Smith would be available for his regular news conference today.

Quarterback Rex Grossman handed new Florida Coach Ron Zook his first big triumph Friday when he announced he would return to the Gators for his junior season. "It's the hardest decision I've had to make in my entire life," Grossman said. "It was going to be a big decision either way. But I'm glad I'm coming back." Rejoining him will be receiver Taylor Jacobs, who said he would return. Neither Grossman nor Taylor was considering leaving before former coach Steve Spurrier's unexpected resignation.

After winning their first seven games, the Chicago Bears were 6-3 in their last nine games and looked very beatable because of poor quarterback play and injuries on defense. Much-maligned Rex Grossman and his 73.9 passer rating were often blamed for the shaky play of the Bears, who open the playoffs against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at Soldier Field.

The numbers tell the story. Cade McNown was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the first round. So was Rex Grossman. McNown wore the number 8 on his jersey. So does Grossman. The similarities between the Bear quarterbacks past and present don't end there, though it is doubtful that either player would be pleased by the comparison. McNown was an All-American at UCLA who finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting as a senior.

While federal investigators hone in on Michael Vick's alleged role in an illegal dogfighting operation and watchdog groups stand guard to ensure the NFL and Atlanta Falcons are ready to get tough with one of their stars, other more typical dramas are percolating throughout the league. And, as teams open training camp this week, most of them even involve football. In particular, three young quarterbacks will be operating under a microscope as they work to salvage their reputations and careers.

Chicago Bear quarterback Rex Grossman got a victory in his NFL debut. Fellow rookie and teammate Charles Tillman got the save. Tillman ripped the ball out of Randy Moss' hands in the corner of the end zone for an interception with 1:02 left Sunday, helping to preserve Chicago's 13-10 victory over Minnesota. The Vikings (8-6) dropped into a tie for first place in the NFC North.

Dr. Daniel Grossman is fiercely proud of his son, Rex, quarterback of the Chicago Bears. So proud, that he recently bought No. 8 Bears jerseys for the roughly 70 employees at his eye surgery clinic. Occasionally, he asks that everyone in the office wear them on the same day. Not everyone who walks through the door recognizes the jerseys. "Sometimes," receptionist Sheri Dallas said, "people will ask if we're all on the same bowling team." Those patients should be forgiven.
