DENVER Former Denver Broncos running back Travis Henry appeared in court Monday, handcuffed and wearing yellow prison clothes for a hearing that stemmed from his arrest last week over an alleged cocaine deal.
A judge set bail for Henry at $400,000 and ordered the case moved to Montana, where authorities say they discovered a car with three kilograms of cocaine and six pounds of marijuana that was supplied by Henry and co-defendant James Mack.
If convicted, each faces a minimum of 10 years in prison up to life, plus a $4 million fine.
ARIZONA: Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner says that after this season he will take his closest look yet at retiring from the NFL.
The scary injury to teammate Anquan Boldin, combined with other factors, has led him to give more serious consideration to leaving the game.
“I'm definitely considering retirement more than I ever have before,” Warner, 37, said Monday, “but that doesn't mean it's more than 50 percent or anything like that. I'm just going to consider it.”
CINCINNATI:Marvin Lewis doesn't plan to quit.
The Bengals coach said Monday the team's worst start in six years hasn't diminished his commitment to getting it turned around. A 31-22 loss at Dallas left Lewis' team at the bottom of the league, the only one with an 0-5 record. Three other teams are 0-4.
PHILADELPHIA: All-Pro running back Brian Westbrook broke two ribs in the Eagles' 23-17 loss to Washington on Sunday, though he stayed in and finished the game.
It's too early to know if the injury will keep him out of Sunday's game at San Francisco.
N.Y. GIANTS: Receiver Plaxico Burress said he “didn't lose any sleep” over being suspended for Sunday's game against Seattle after missing a meeting and failing to contact the team.
Burress said Monday on a conference call with reporters that he had family issues to deal with, including taking his son to school on Sept. 22, and that he failed to contact the team during the time he was expected to be at the meeting.
