Police admit mistake in Jackson burglary case

According to information provided to NBC10, the initial amount of cash reportedly stolen from DeSean Jackson's house was incorrect.

Philadelphia Police at first estimated $200,000 in cash was stolen from Jackson's home after a preliminary interview with his mother, Gayle, who said her son typically has that much in the safe that was robbed. But when police talked with Jackson, he said only $20,000 along with a handgun was in a safe at the time of the break-in. A gold and diamond watch worth $110,000 was also taken.

"No one misled us and no one lied to us about what was taken," Lt. John Stanford said. "This was a genuine mistake on our part.

"His mother was giving police what she thought was in the home. Once they interviewed Jackson, he knows what's in his house, and he said, 'No that's wrong.' He told them what was missing."

The burglary was first reported on Jan. 11.

Carson Wentz named Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week

As Carson Wentz rolls out of bed, he wins an award. Brushes his teeth, wins an award. Eats breakfast, award.

This time, the Eagles' rookie quarterback has been named the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week for his performance against the Steelers in a 34-3 Week 3 win.

Against the Steelers, Wentz completed 23 of 31 passes for 301 yards, two touchdowns and a 125.9 passer rating. He beat out Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott, Browns CB Briean Boddy-Calhoun and teammate Wendell Smallwood.

This is the second time in three weeks that Wentz has been named the NFL Rookie of the Week.

Here are the awards Wentz has won so far this season:

- NFL Rookie of the Week for Week 1
- NFC Offensive Player of Week 3
- NFC Offensive Rookie of the Month for September
- NFL Rookie of the Week for Week 3

Wentz won't have any chances to win more awards this weekend as the Eagles are on their bye. They'll play again on Oct. 9 in Detroit.

NFL Notes: Browns plan to 'move on' from WR Josh Gordon

NFL Notes: Browns plan to 'move on' from WR Josh Gordon

BEREA, Ohio -- Browns coach Hue Jackson says the team has "moved on" from suspended wide receiver Josh Gordon.

A day after Gordon said he's entering rehab, Jackson made it clear the Browns have ended their relationship with the 25-year-old, whose off-field troubles have prevented him from building on a breakout season in 2013.

Jackson reiterated that the team supports Gordon, who was on the brink of returning from a four-game NFL suspension for his latest drug violation. Jackson said his focus needs to on "taking care of the players that are here." After fielding a few questions, Jackson, in his first year as Cleveland's coach, said he's done talking about Gordon and said the team "needs to close that chapter right now."

Gordon was eligible to return next week and could have played in the Oc. 9 game against New England (see full story).

Jets: WR Eric Decker out "week to week" with partially torn rotator cuff
FLORHAM PARK, N.J.  -- New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker has a partially torn rotator cuff that will sideline him for the team's game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Coach Todd Bowles announced Friday that Decker will be "week to week" with the shoulder injury.

Decker did not participate in practice all week.

Decker injured the shoulder against Buffalo on Sept. 15, but it worsened last Sunday during the Jets' loss at Kansas City. The wide receiver said after the game that the shoulder was sore, but an MRI revealed that it was worse than that (see full story).

Bills: WR Watkins placed on IR; to miss at least 8 weeks
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills receiver Sammy Watkins will miss at least eight weeks resting an injury to his surgically repaired left foot after the team placed him on the reserved-injured list.

The Bills announced the move on Friday afternoon, a few hours after coach Rex Ryan expressed "major concern" over the receiver missing significant time.

Watkins was already ruled out from playing at New England on Sunday, and missed last weekend's game against Arizona. He's been sidelined since a teammate stepped on his foot during a walk through session last week.

Buffalo's first-round pick in the 2014 draft missed much of the offseason after having two screws inserted into his foot to repair a stress fracture in April.

The Bills filled Watkins spot by claiming receiver Justin Hunter.
