NFL

Seahawks temper Gordon expectations

Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is trying to temper the expectations as Josh Gordon is integrated into the team.

Right now, Carroll is more concerned about just seeing Gordon get through a full week of practice.

"He's a smart football guy. He's going to get it. It's not going to take him very long. I just need to see him practice. I can't tell you anything right now," Carroll said Thursday.

The speed with which Gordon is able to pick up the Seahawks' system and find a role — even if it's small – will ultimately determine if he plays Monday night when the Seahawks face division foe San Francisco.

Gordon is healthy, having passed his physical in Seattle following knee and ankle injuries that eventually led to his release from New England.

Redskins shut Williams down

The Redskins on Thursday put left tackle Trent Williams on the non-football injury list and activated running back Derrius Guice.

Williams reported last week after a lengthy holdout, and discussed a cancer scare that led him to distrust the organization.

Guice has been out since Week 1 with a right knee injury.

BROADCASTING

Cris Carter out at Fox Sports

Former Vikings receiver and Hall of Famer Cris Carter is no longer employed by Fox Sports, though the reason is both unclear and described by at least one report as “serious.”

The Big Lead reports that Carter “cleaned out his desk at Fox Sports under supervision of security,” adding detail to sports media reporter John Ourand’s reporting from earlier Thursday that included only a short statement from Fox confirming Carter’s departure.

Carter worked on the shouty talking heads FS1 show “First Things First,” and had been suspended from that show pending an investigation, per TBL.

GOLF

Woods picks himself for Cup

U.S. captain Tiger Woods used one of his four wild-card selections on himself Thursday, and will become the first playing captain in the Presidents Cup since Hale Irwin in the inaugural edition 25 years ago.

The decision was hardly a surprise.

Woods is the Masters champion, and 2 weeks ago tied the PGA Tour record with his 82nd career victory at the Zozo Championship in Japan. He is No. 6 in the world ranking.

He also took Tony Finau, U.S. Open champion Gary Woodland and Patrick Reed.

The Presidents Cup is Dec. 12-15 at Royal Melbourne. Ernie Els filled out his International team on Wednesday, and has six newcomers.
