Kansas City Chiefs Sign Veteran Defensive Tackle Cam Thomas

Chiefs general manager Brett Veach moved quickly to replace Roy Miller, which the Chiefs did by signing veteran defensive tackle Cam Thomas on Monday. The seven-year veteran has recorded 114 tackles and 7 1/2 sacks in 101 career games, and might be counted on in place of Miller, who was assigned to plug the middle in short-yardage situations.

The Versatile Anthony-Ratliff-Williams

Anthony Ratliff-Williams had to learn the nuances of the wide receiver position -- how to get off the line, create separation with his hands, read coverages, and run routes properly. In 2016, he was behind standout veterans Ryan Switzer, Mack Hollins, Bug Howard, and Austin Proehl. The production that Fedora and his staff envisioned has been on full display this season.

Nathan Elliott Providing Stability at Quarterback

North Carolina’s offense has regained its footing since Nathan Elliott took the reins of Larry Fedora’s hurry-up no-huddle spread. “Nathan’s given us some stability there. If we don’t turn it over in that Miami game, we’re in a different situation also. But it’s been a combination. Once you’ve got a little bit more stability there, I think the guys around [him] can do a better job.” (Inside Carolina)

Five With Fedora - Nov. 13

Larry Fedora on North Carolina's win over Pitt: "(Quarterback Nathan Elliott is) a coach's kid who's been around the game his whole life. I think what was good to see against Miami and then again this week against Pitt was that he didn't shy away when the bright lights came on. He rose to the occasion. I thought he handled the offense well and executed the game plan." (GoHeels.com)

Recap: Former UNC Players in the NFL - Week Ten

Chicago Bears QB Mitch Trubisky puts up strong numbers in loss

Bears rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky threw a career high 35 passes in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Packers, and he finished with a career-best 297 passing yards. His 97 passer rating was his second best, trailing only the 101.8 he had against the Panthers when he threw just 7 passes. "I still have to find ways to get better," said Trubisky, who is 2-3 as a starter. (Chicago Daily Herald)

Former UNC Football Player Nate Hobgood-Chittick Dies at Age 42

Hobgood-Chittick, who would have turned 43 on November 30, enjoyed a football career that included four bowl games while at the University of North Carolina. After graduating from UNC, he played in the NFL for six seasons. (Allentown Morning Call)

The Good, Bad, & Ugly Report: Pitt

It feels good to write one of these again. I predicted North Carolina would beat Pitt because A) the Tar Heels had played well enough to win in at least four of the eight games it lost; B) the bye week would allow UNC to work on some things and heal some of those guys who were not out for the season; and C) the law of averages says the team was simply due.

Texans QB T.J. Yates appreciates the practice snaps

As the Houston Texans' backup quarterback, T.J. Yates is always striving to stay sharp. Running the scout team doesn't exactly do the trick, though. Yates has been taking some snaps with the first-team offense behind starter Tom Savage this week. "You have to be ready. That's kind of the life of a quarterback in this league if you're not a starting guy," Yates said. (Houston Chronicle)

Washington Redskins Q&A: Zach Brown

Washington Redskins inside linebacker Zach Brown leads the NFL in tackles and has become a dominant force in the middle of the field for the defense. After a recent practice he discusses growing up as a wrestler, his musical influences and how he envisions the second half of the season. (Washington Redskins)

James Hurst Epitomizes Ravens' Better-Than-Expected Offensive Line

Perhaps nobody epitomizes the story of the Ravens offensive line more than left guard James Hurst, who has taken plenty of criticism over the years, yet stands as a regular starter and key cog. Hurst was an undrafted rookie in 2014. Hurst has given up one sack and 10 quarterback hurries in nine games. He has progressively improved as the season has gone on. (Baltimore Ravens)
