KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Chiefs needed help in their leaky defensive backfield.

Darrelle Revis was ready to provide it.

So the AFC West leaders signed the seven-time Pro Bowl cornerback on Wednesday, a surprising midseason move involving a big-name player. Revis played for the New York Jets last season, but his massive salary cap number combined with a decline in performance led to his release in late February.


Bills back to Taylor, bench Peterman

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Rather than risk another meltdown with the Bills still in the midst of the playoff race, coach Sean McDermott had little choice but to reverse course at quarterback.

Tyrod Taylor will start on Sunday when Buffalo (5-5) travels to play the Kansas City Chiefs (6-4).


Cutler still in protocol, not ruled out

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) Miami Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler remains in the concussion protocol and is not practicing Wednesday, but he hasn't yet been ruled out of Sunday's game at New England.

Coach Adam Gase says he's taking the quarterback situation day to day. Matt Moore would make his second start of the season if Cutler doesn't play.


Cut by Seattle, Freeney claimed by Lions

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) The Detroit Lions have added Dwight Freeney off waivers from Seattle.

Detroit acquired the 37-year-old Freeney on Wednesday, a day before hosting the Minnesota Vikings in a possibly pivotal game for the NFC North title.


Brady skips practice with Achilles issue

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady sat out practice Wednesday with what the team says is an Achilles tendon injury.

Brady has started all 10 games this season for New England. He also has yet to miss a game because of an injury since 2008 when he suffered a season-ending knee injury in the opening game.


Falcons' Freeman may miss another game

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman remains on concussion protocol, threatening his status for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

Freeman suffered the concussion on the second play of Atlanta's win over Dallas on Nov. 12 and missed last week's 34-31 win at Seattle.


Ailing Jets' Forte uncertain for Sunday

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) A bye-week break wasn't enough to get Matt Forte back on the field.

The New York Jets running back remained sidelined Wednesday with an ailing knee and is uncertain to play Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.


49ers to start Beathard vs. Seahawks

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) The 49ers are planning to give rookie C.J. Beathard his fifth consecutive start Sunday against the Seahawks, Kyle Shanahan said.

That means Jimmy Garoppolo will likely be the backup for at least another week after being acquired in a trade with the Patriots at the Oct. 31 deadline.


Reed among Redskins out vs. Giants

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) Tight end Jordan Reed, defensive lineman Terrell McClain, center Chase Roullier and safety Montae Nicholson will miss the Washington Redskins' game against the New York Giants.

There might be other Redskins sidelined, too.


Browns' Gordon practices for first time

BEREA, Ohio (AP) Banned for nearly two years, Josh Gordon ran uninhibited around the field.

While it may have only been a practice, for Gordon it was another new beginning - his last chance.
