During an interview on ESPN's "NFL Live," free-agent OL Ross Tucker (Redskins) continued to contend the Patriots used injured players illegally. Tucker believed that the Patriots used players on the injured reserve list in practices, which violates league rules. Former Patriots video assistant Matt Walsh told NFL commissioner Roger Goodell last week that a Patriots player on injured reserve practiced when he wasn't allowed to in 2001. In an article for SI.com, Tucker wrote: "I had heard the Patriots did this before I signed with them in 2005 and I saw it firsthand during my time there. I asked veteran receiver Troy Brown about it one time and he responded, 'Every team in the league does that.' I quickly let him know none of the three teams I played for previously had done so."

Mike McLain, of the Tribune Chronicle, reports the Cleveland Browns had to waive OL Lennie Friedman Monday, Aug. 28, to tweak his contract. Once the change was made, Freidman was re-signed and was on the practice field the last two days. "My contract was a little different than it was in Chicago," Friedman said. "They had to terminate the first contract and have the other one take hold. I think I was not with the Browns for about five minutes." Friedman should receive plenty of time coming off the bench in relief of OC Ross Tucker in the preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 31, against the Chicago Bears. Browns' head coach Romeo Crennel has said that Friedman and Tucker are competing for the starting job.
