As the member of a family with deep roots in sports - including a few cousins who tried out for the NFL - Ashley Sims was familiar with witnessing feats of athleticism. But his eyes were opened when, as a 22-year-old junior defensive end at Maryland, he returned to his mother's home in Rochester, N.Y., and saw his 11-year-old brother - whom Sims estimated stood at 5 feet 4 inches and weighed 220 pounds - doing backflips. "Right then and there, I knew he was an athlete," Sims recalled.

When Branden Albert arrived in Glen Burnie seven years ago to live with his brother's family, he was a 340-pound basketball player with quick feet, a soft middle and no time for homework. All that changed - except for the quick feet - once he settled in with Ashley and Adrienne Sims. Ashley, his brother, was a former defensive end at Maryland and a probation officer in Washington. Before long, Albert was playing football at Glen Burnie, doing double duty at night school and polishing up his basketball game.

Arizona wide receiver Anquan Boldin (pictured) was carted off the field after a helmet-to-helmet collision in the end zone with 27 seconds remaining in the Cardinals' 56-35 loss to the host New York Jets yesterday. Boldin tried to catch a pass from Kurt Warner, but was hit in the back and then took a shot to his helmet from safety Eric Smith. Boldin and Smith fell to the turf, and Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald immediately waved to the sideline for help. Trainers ran out to check on Boldin, and soon the entire Cardinals team surrounded their teammate as the Giants Stadium crowd fell silent.

The Kansas City Chiefs have released former Ravens offensive tackle Jared Gaither. The 6-foot-9 left tackle signed with the Chiefs this summer after he and the Ravens parted ways. He was active for 10 games this season, but was a backup to Chiefs starter Branden Albert. Gaither subbed in for Albert during Sunday night's 13-9 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers and was flagged for a false start on his very first play . Gaither will be placed on waivers and any team can put in a claim for the enigmatic lineman.
