Texans offensive lineman Fred Weary, 29, was shot with a Taser before being arrested after a traffic stop. The 6-foot-4-inch, 308-pound guard was pulled over at 1 p.m. about 6 miles from Reliant Stadium and transported to jail. Weary was being held at Houston's Central Jail last night, a jail official said. Weary pushed an officer away and was shot with a Taser after he stepped toward officers when they ordered him to put his hands on the vehicle, police said . . . The Titans are requiring Albert Haynesworth to continue anger management counseling he started during a five-game suspension for stomping a Dallas player.
'I've got big shoulders'Jaguars left tackle Khalif Barnes, who was arrested early Saturday on drunken driving charges and benched for Sunday's 13-10 loss to Houston, apologized for his arrest over the weekend. "[The Jaguars] don't deserve to have their franchise getting dragged through the mud like this," he said. " I've got big shoulders. I'm going to be a man about it. I take full responsibility." Barnes was driving 101 miles per hour in a 60-miles-per-hour zone and had a blood alcohol level of 0.12 . . . More than two months after he was knocked unconscious in Kansas City's season opener, quarterback Trent Green was given medical clearance to play again. Whether he or Damon Huard will start Sunday against Oakland remains unclear, however: coach Herm Edwards said whatever decision he makes will remain a secret until kickoff . . . Lions assistant Joe Cullen, arrested this summer while police say he was driving nude and a week later on suspicion of drunken driving, most likely will get a plea deal. Judge William Hultgren said he could accept a deal if Cullen, a 1990 UMass product, continues a treatment program and stays out of trouble.
