Seahawks lineman suspended 4 games

Terry violated league policy

The Associated Press

SEATTLE - Seattle Seahawks offensive lineman Chris Terry was suspended Monday for the team's first four games for violating the NFL substance abuse and personal conduct policies.

He is eligible to return to the Seahawks' active roster on Oct. 6.

In February, Terry agreed to undergo counseling and perform community service as part of a deal to defer prosecution of a charge he shoved his wife into a wall during an argument last summer.

LIONS: Olandis Gary was playing in an exhibition game against Detroit less than a week ago. On Monday, he was in a Lions uniform.

The running back was traded from Buffalo to Detroit for an undisclosed draft pick over the weekend and reported to the Lions practice facility in time for Monday morning's practice.

"Everything has been going pretty fast in the last few days," Gary said. "It never entered my mind on Thursday that I was going to be a Lion, but that's what the NFL is all about."

BUCS: Tight end Tony McGee signed a one-year contract with Tampa Bay. To make room on the roster, the team released rookie offensive tackle Lance Nimmo.

McGee, who's played 10 seasons with Cincinnati and Dallas, will fill a role opened when the Bucs waived injured tight end Rickey Dudley on Sunday.

FALCONS: Atlanta claimed tight end Sean Brewer off waivers Monday from Cincinnati. Tight end Lamont Hall was released to make room on the roster. Brewer, a third-round draft choice in 2001, played in just three games last year, when a knee injury landed him on injured reserve.

BRONCOS: Denver released quarterback Danny Kanell on Monday and signed cornerback Roosevelt Williams.

Kanell survived final cuts on Sunday and was expected to be Denver's third quarterback, but the Broncos opted to go with 10 defensive backs after Williams was released by Chicago.

REDSKINS: Rookie receiver Taylor Jacobs remained hospitalized Monday for what Washington called "abdominal trauma." Taylor was kicked in the stomach during last week's exhibition game against Jacksonville. He is expected to be released today.
