NFL Week 9 live: Ravens-Dolphins, DeSean Jackson's helmet and more

By Cindy Boren

The Redskins are off, but that hasn't kept them from making news. Brandon Banks underwent knee surgery last week. There's more on that on Redskins Insider. In stuff on the gridiron today:

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson will play against the Colts for the first time since suffering a concussion last month and he'll be wearing a special helmet. Michael Vick is back, wearing a kevlar-enhanced uniform to protect his chest, kinda like the suit Batman wears.

Raiders-Chiefs is a big game for the first time in forever. Oakland quarterback Jason Campbell has been playing well in an offense with a rushing attack that's second in the league (shades of his days at Auburn?).

Minnesota's Brad Childress is a [deep voice] coach in crisis. You know it's bad when the guy under investigation by the NFL isn't the team's biggest problem.

For sheer comedic effect, can anything top the Cowboys? The owner thought they were 1-7. The coach, a few weeks back, thought his team had company in its 1-4edness. And all the Cowboy fans I know were being emailed this last week.

Let's watch some fubball and take this to Twitter.
