Broncos' linebacker told to sit out for three months

Denver Broncos linebacker Warrick Holdman has been advised by doctors not to play football for three months after suffering a spinal cord concussion in a collision with a teammate last week.

Holdman was injured on Aug. 2 when he was trying to tackle running back Mike Bell, who lowered his left shoulder and struck the 243-pound linebacker in his helmet. Holdman went numb for about 40 seconds before regaining feeling in his extremities.

TITANS: Adam "Pacman" Jones can appear at a wrestling show today, with a couple of provisions: The suspended cornerback won't be allowed to touch or be touched, use or be hit by any object or anything else that could injure him.

That doesn't leave much for Jones.

But at least he can be in the building for the Total Nonstop Action Wrestling pay-per-view event. The arrangement was approved by a Tennessee judge Saturday following an agreement among the Titans, Jones' attorney and lawyers for TNA Entertainment.

SEAHAWKS: Signed free-agent tight end Andy Stokes and released cornerback Gerard Ross.
