Wide receiver David Boston skipped Sunday's loss to the Broncos because of a bruised heel. But his first step was more than quick enough in the game's final minutes, as he left the bench area before the contest ended. He was spotted walking up the tunnel to the player's parking lot before his teammates had time to exit the field.
Coach Marty Schottenheimer wasn't

"I don't know what he
was doing. I want him in the locker room."
