WESTFIELD, Ind. (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts have claimed running back D'Onta Foreman off waivers from Houston.
He was cut by the Texans on Sunday after coach Bill O'Brien expressed...
Bills missing running backs McCoy and Ivory
Bills starting running back LeSean McCoy and his backup, Chris Ivory, are both inactive for Buffalo's home game against the Detroit Lions.
McCoy is out after hurting his left hamstring and Ivory hurt his left shoulder in a 27-23 loss to the New York Jets last weekend. The injuries leave Buffalo with two healthy running backs in rookies Marcus Murphy and Keith Ford, who was promoted from the practice squad this week.
Bills kicker Stephen Hauschka is active despite nursing a hip injury.
• Streak broken: Texas A&M scored two plays into the game and placekicker Daniel LaCamera missed the extra point, his first miss and the Aggies’ first in a school record 235 tries. The streak spanned three kickers — Josh Lambo, Taylor Bertolet and LaCamera — and was the longest in the FBS. The national record is 302 by Florida State from 2012 to 2016.
Texas A&M dominated the last 21 minutes of play for a 24-17 Southeastern victory over the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday night at Kyle Field.
The Aggies (4-1, 2-0) scored on three straight second-half possessions, leaning on the running game and defense. Senior running back Keith Ford powered his way in from the 7 to tie the game at 17 with 12 minutes, 27 seconds left in the game. Ford carried would-be tacklers the last 2 yards.
Ford’s 2 fourth quarter TDs lead Aggies over Gamecocks 24-17
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Coach Kevin Sumlin has so many good runners that the Texas A&M coach sometimes has trouble distributing carries between them.
On Saturday night he saw that Keith Ford was on a roll late. So he kept feeding him the ball, and it paid off as Ford ran for 70 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead 17-yard score in the fourth quarter, to lift Texas A&M to a 24-17 win over South Carolina.
Kendall Bussey beginning to show form that attracted Texas A&M’s eye
Texas A&M doesn't have a starting quarterback, but it has three running backs it can count on in crunch time.
One of them, sophomore Kendall Bussey, played the role of unexpected hero in last week's 24-14 victory over Nicholls State, rushing for 92 yards on 13 carries in the fourth quarter to lead the Aggies on a pair of scoring drives.
Here are the preseason grades for the 2017 Aggies with last season's preseason grades in parentheses:
QUARTERBACKS D+ (B-)
• The good: It's nice to have choices. Redshirt freshman Nick Starkel has great potential; true freshman Kellen Mond can run and has plenty of speed when he does; and senior Jake Hubenak is reliable.
• The bad: No one knows what's going to happen. Starkel could be the program's savior or the next quarterback to transfer.
Ready to run: Trayveon Williams and Keith Ford aim to follow impressive debut seasons
Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin often reminded the media in spring 2016 that early enrollee Trayveon Williams should be at senior prom instead of college football practice.
The true freshman would go on to lead the team in rushing, and set rushing records for freshmen. This year, he will be counted on as a primary weapon on an inexperienced offense.
Allen’s TD helps No. 1 Alabama overpower No. 6 Aggies, 33-14
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — When Alabama couldn't shake Texas A&M in a battle of unbeaten, Top 10 teams, it was Jonathan Allen's scoop-and-score defensive touchdown that effectively brushed aside the latest would-be challenger.
Knight throws for 3 TDs in No. 20 Texas A&M 67-0 win
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Trevor Knight threw for 344 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another score to lead No. 20 Texas A&M to a 67-0 rout of Prairie View A&M on Saturday.
Knight finished 21 of 37 and threw touchdowns of 8 yards to Speedy Noil and 34 and 64 yards to Christian Kirk in the second quarter as the Aggies (2-0) built a 38-0 halftime lead. Knight also rushed for a game-high 78 yards on seven carries in just over one half of play.
