NFL NOTEBOOK

Tennessee might delay return of Haynesworth

Tennessee defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth's suspension from the NFL ends Sunday after the Titans play the Baltimore Ravens. Team officials might not be ready to welcome him back.

"Our front office will be discussing the issue over the next couple of days," coach Jeff Fisher said yesterday. "That's all I can comment on."

The NFL punished Haynesworth Oct. 2 with the league's longest suspension for on-field behavior, a five-game suspension for swiping his right foot on the face of Dallas center Andre Gurode.

Sanders hopeful
The Indianapolis Colts hope to have Pro Bowl safety Bob Sanders on the field Sunday against Buffalo even though he missed practice the last two days. Sanders has had soreness in his right knee since returning to the lineup for the win over New England that kept the Colts undefeated. He had missed five games after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery. Linebacker Gary Brackett is not expected to play after injuring a hamstring against the Patriots . . . Falcons cornerback Jason Webster has a torn groin muscle that is expected to keep him out for at least a month. Rookie cornerback Jimmy Williams, was tentatively named as Webster's replacement, took one snap on special teams before rolling his ankle and hobbling off the field. Pro Bowl cornerback DeAngelo Hall missed practice because of a strained hamstring . . . Cowboys receiver Terry Glenn (knee) missed practice for the second day, making his status for this weekend uncertain . . . Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson (ankle) will not play against Miami . . . Carolina defensive tackle Jordan Carstens remained hospitalized as doctors treated a blood clot on his left lung . . . By 2012, the San Francisco 49ers hope to move into a state-of-the-art stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., a Silicon Valley suburb 30 miles south of San Francisco.
