The AFC Notebook

A wookly look at the news, notes and quick hits from the AFC.

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Colt McCoy suffered the same injury as Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace on Sunday - an ankle sprain that occurred during the loss to Tampa Bay last Sunday. "It's different than the ones [Delhomme and Wallace] had, but it's in that same category," said head doach Eric Mangini. Mangini also added that on Sunday, said he is "leaning" towards starting Delhomme against the Carolina Panthers because of his familiarity with his old team. Obviously, Mangini's familiarity with the Jets three weeks ago didn't help him beat his old team, so that logic might be flawed.

According to, Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey spoke very highly of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger prior to Sunday's matchup. "He might even be playing better since the suspension. He's checking the ball down more than he has ever done. He's not forcing the ball," Gailey is quoted as saying. "He's staying out of bad situations. He's playing very, very well right now." In return for these kind remarks, sources tell us that "Big Ben" promises to buy Gailey a drink at a local bar but won't follow him into the bathroom.

According to CBSSports RaidReports, the Steelers practiced from 11:00 a.m to 1:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. "We are going about our business," Coach Mike Tomlin said. "We will be practicing." Perhaps a good move by Tomlin as the two of the Steelers next four games are against the Ravens and the Jets.

As if the Chargers Philip Rivers wasn't having a good enough year, he just got his number one target Vincent Jackson back. The Chargers added Jackson to the 53-man roster on Tuesday as he will start on Sunday against the Colts. Jackson can only add to a loaded and stacked San Diego offense that has been decimating opponents during its recent run of form.
