Miami Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard has been making a name for himself as an elite defensive back this season and is looking forward to his upcoming matchup with Cincinnati Bengals All-Pro wide receiver A.J. Green in Week 5, according to Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post.
“He got an opportunity to make a great play on me,” Howard said , referring to the touchdown Green scored on him in a 10 reception 172 yard performance 2 seasons ago. “I thought it was a push off.”
Howard said it was a deep pass play, though not a touchdown. But what hurt most was it was featured on a segment with Randy Moss.
“I remember it in the back of my head, Because I saw it on ‘You Got Mossed!’ So I got a little bit of heat on that. I was like (my gosh). I’m ready this week, though.”
Howard vs. Green should be a premier matchup to watch as the two teams duke it out this Sunday.
Bills’ Matt Milano Out for Season
Milano, 24, was a standout for the Bills’ defense during their upset victory over the Minnesota Vikings which earned him AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors.
Milano’s spot on the roster is likely to be filled by Deon Lacey.
Raiders Fire Reggie McKenzie
The Oakland Raiders have fired general manager Reggie McKenzie, according to NFL Network insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero.
Raiders head coach Jon Gruden dodged questions regarding McKenzie’s job status following Sunday’s game;
“I don’t have any comment on that,” Gruden said, according to Michael Gehlken of the Review-Journal. “We’re going to build this team back. I know that. We’re going to bring the Raiders back.”
Raiders’ Jon Feliciano Done For Season
The Oakland Raiders will be without left guard Jon Feliciano who suffered a calk injury that will likely shut him down for the remainder of the season, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal’s Michael Gehlken.
Feliciano suffered the injury during Oakland’s surprise win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
Feliciano, 26, is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and is a strong candidate to be re-signed by the rebuilding Raiders.
