Jacoby Jones, of the Baltimore Ravens, tied an NFL record with a 108-yard kickoff return.


Jones’ return came in the third quarter of Baltimore’s game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. He took the kick in the middle of the end zone, veered to his right around the 10-yard line, broke an arm tackle by Andre Holmes and outdistanced kicker Dan Bailey down the right sideline.

The return tied the mark set by Ellis Hobbs, of New England, against the New York Jets in 2007 and matched in 2011 by Randall Cobb, of Green Bay, against New Orleans.

CARDINALS: Starting quarterback Kevin Kolb was injured while being sacked against the Buffalo Bills and did not return to the game, which Arizona lost.

BROWNS: Rookie running back Trent Richardson is sore after taking a Bengals’ helmet to the ribs.

He was limited Sunday after he was injured in the first quarter. Richardson finished with just 37 yards on 14 carries and spent most of the second half on the sideline.

STEELERS: Rookie defensive lineman Alameda Ta’amu was arrested early Sunday on charges of leading police on a chase while driving drunk and crashing into parked cars, injuring a woman, authorities said.

RAVENS: Cornerback Lardarius Webb left Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys with a sprained right knee.

Webb banged his knee in a first-quarter collision with Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant.
