>>Ravens, Chargers Get MNF Wins

(Undated)  --  The Baltimore Ravens and San Diego Chargers wrapped up Week One in the NFL with wins on "Monday Night Football."  Joe Flacco passed for 299 yards and two touchdowns as the Ravens routed the Cincinnati Bengals, 44-13.  The Ravens paid tribute to late former owner Art Modell prior to the game.  In Oakland, the Chargers notched a 22-14 victory over the Raiders.  Nate Kaeding drilled all five of his field goal attempts in the win.

>>Bears Sign Veteran OT Scott

The Chicago Bears have signed veteran offensive tackle Jonathan Scott, while defensive tackle Nate Collins was reinstated to the active roster.

The Bears also waived punter Ryan Quigley, signed tight end Dedrick Epps to the practice squad and terminated the practice squad contract of offensive tackle Cory Brandon.

Scott spent the past two seasons with Pittsburgh, starting 14 games and three playoff games, before being released in July. Scott was picked up by Detroit - the team that drafted him in 2006 - but hurt his knee, ultimately getting released off injured reserve. He says he's "very healthy" now.

Collins was placed on the reserved/suspended list after the NFL suspended him in July for the season opener against Indianapolis for violating the substance abuse program.

>>Rams Assess Injuries After Week One

(St. Louis, MO)  --  Rams head coach Jeff Fisher address some injuries that were suffered during Week One at yesterday's press conference.  Fisher says offensive tackle Rodger Saffold has a "significant" strained neck and is expected to miss this week's game, perhaps longer.  Center Scott Wells suffered a fracture in his left foot and will require surgery.  He was placed on the NFL's new injured reserve exemption list, meaning he can return to a game as early as Week Eight.  The Rams host the Redskins on Sunday in their home-opener.
