NFL notebook



The Associated Press

Despite spending Thursday in a hospital, tight end Marcus Pollard is expected to play for the Indianapolis on Sunday against New Orleans.

Edgerrin James remains doubtful for the Colts as the running back missed practice again Friday with a back injury.

JAGUARS: Rookie quarterback Byron Leftwich probably will make his first NFL start Sunday, with Mark Brunell (elbow) downgraded to doubtful against Houston.

VIKINGS: Daunte Culpepper was upgraded to questionable, meaning there's a 50 percent chance the injured quarterback will play against San Francisco.

BRONCOS: The NFL fined Denver $25,000 for showing up in the wrong-colored uniforms for a game against San Diego and fined wide receiver Rod Smith $20,000 for accidentally hitting an official.

The Broncos were penalized for wearing white uniforms Sept. 14 against San Diego, even though Denver had agreed beforehand to wear dark uniforms.

RAMS: Rookie linebacker Scott Shanle was suspended for four games without pay for violating the NFL's policy on anabolic steroids and related substances.
