Some news that knocked the Bengals for a loop:

ESPN - Thurman denied reinstatement, will miss season - NFL

    Middle linebacker Odell Thurman has been denied reinstatement by the NFL and the Cincinnati Bengals' one-time starter will have his suspension continued at least through the 2007 campaign.

    That means Thurman will miss a second straight season, putting his career in jeopardy.

    NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who met recently with Thurman, made the decision. The Bengals, who anticipated that Thurman would be cleared to return, made the announcement of Goodell's ruling on Thursday morning in a news release.

I looked everywhere in this article for any reference to any trouble Thurman might have gotten himself in during his suspension. All I found was that party in which two men alleged assault and then subsequently withdrew the accusations. This means either the NFL is really, REALLY strict about staying out of trouble or Thurman must have made a total ass of himself to Goodell during their meeting.

Either way, if this case serves as a precedent, don't hold your breath for "Pacman" Jones to ever see an NFL field again.

I might sit Peerless Price for Deion Branch this week. Price may miss the game with little injuries, plus he's got nobody to throw to him. I know this since I have Price and am sitting him this week in favor of Andre Davis. How the mighty have fallen.
