My Sports Rumors:
The NFL is a complete joke when they say they care about players safety more then ever. We all ranted a couple weeks ago when Atlanta Falcons corner Dunta Robinson was fined only $40,000 for his hit on Philadelphia Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin. The fine was less then the one he received the prior year for his hit on DeSean Jackson and showed he hasn’t learned his lesson. Well today the NFL has decided to reduce his current fine to $25,000.

Come on Roger Goodell let’s hear you say it again? You care about the players safety and you’re doing everything possible to keep them safe. Us fans and most players call ******** when your office gives lighter fines and then reduces them further to repeat offenders.

The Falcons will place Ovie Mughelli on injured reserve, ending the fullback’s season, according to a person familiar with the situation.
Mughelli injured his right knee during Sunday’s victory. Lions defensive back Louis Delmas hit Mughelli’s knee during a tackle in the fourth quarter following a 4-yard reception. Mughelli did not return after the injury and was on crutches...
When he's not fighting opponents double teams in the trenches — and the cheap shots that inevitably come with them — he finds himself fighting, or at least being asked to fight, a perception that he's a dirty player, fueled by postgame comments from the Falcons after a 23-16 loss at Ford Field.
Matt Ryan’s injury on Sunday looked awful, but it apparently won’t have any lasting impact on the Falcons quarterback. Ryan joined PFT Live on Tuesday and told Florio that he went in to work Monday for his usual work, without a walking boot. Ryan said that he could practice this week and would have been…
The Falcons announced that they signed fullback Mike Cox and offensive tackle Kirk Chambers to take the roster spots of fullback Ovie Mughelli and guard Mike Johnson, who were placed on injured reserve today.
Cox played three seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, making the team first as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia Tech in 2008. He started for two seasons as their fullback...
Mughelli celebrates vs. Carolina
Jay Glazer of FOX Sports tweets that the Falcons are going to place fullback Ovie Mughelli on injured reserve due to the knee injury he suffered on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. The exact nature of Mughelli’s knee injury has yet to be disclosed. Earlier reports suggested that Mughelli’s season would not end. Per Zach Klein of WSBTV, Mughelli...
Roddy White doesn't see a lot of sense in Ndamukong Suh's statement that Matt Ryan's injury was "karma" for Atlanta's dirty O-line play.

The Atlanta Falcons placed fullback Ovie Mughelli and guard Mike Johnson on injured reserve Tuesday.
Put Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez as another of those who neither saw nor heard the Lions' taunting that two of his teammates alleged, even though he was on the field Sunday. Gonzalez was downfield on the play, he said Monday on foxsports.com's "The After Party" with Jay Glazer.
