Report: Bills coach Doug Marrone wants to update training staff

Monday's health and safety news from the world of football:

  • reported that the NFL Competition Committee is considering a proposal from the Fritz Pollard Alliance to make the use of the N-word during a game a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome discussed the potential new rule.
  • St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher told The Sports Xchange that the competition committee will not adopt the NCAA's proposed "hurry-up offense rule," which would penalize offenses for snapping the ball prior to 29 seconds left on the play clock.
  • announced that Content Inc., an app developed by the Notre Dame University researchers, has entered into a deal with Accelerated Rehabilitation Centers, the largest group of physical therapy centers in the country.
