The Washington Redskins cut veteran running back Larry Johnson, making him the first casualty of a ground game that has been among the NFL's worst through the first two weeks of the season. Johnson's agent, Peter Schaffer, and the team confirmed the move. According to two sources, the team replaced Johnson with Chad Simpson, a third-year player out of Morgan State who spent two years with the Indianapolis Colts and was with the Buffalo Bills in the preseason. Johnson, 30, a former star with the Kansas City Chiefs, ran five times for 2 yards the first two weeks of the season.

It's safe to say Delonte "Smoke" Williams has settled into his new role with the Bears. Morgan's new quarterback ran three touchdowns and scored on a two-point conversion, leading his team to a conference win over the Aggies in front of a homecoming crowd of 21,500 at Aggies Stadium. The three-touchdown mark by Williams was the most for Morgan State (3-3, 2-1 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) since former standout Chad Simpson ran for three touchdowns against Savannah State in 2007.

Morgan State 2008 record: 6-6 (4-4), fifth place, Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Coach: Donald Hill-Eley (36-43, 8th season) Offensive/defensive starters returning: 6/6 Most important returning player: RB Devan James. He rushed for 1,337 yards last year, 65 shy of the school record set by Chad Simpson (Indianapolis Colts). A repeat would make James Morgan's all-time rushing leader and take a load off erratic QB Carlton Jackson. Others to know: DE Justin Lawrence and DB Darren McKhan Story lines: Morgan lost its offensive and defensive coordinators to MEAC rival North Carolina A&T. But if Jackson comes through, the Bears could land higher than their predicted sixth-place finish (as voted by league coaches and sports information directors)

- The Indianapolis Colts' Chad Simpson is aware that any fan base he developed in Baltimore by playing at Morgan State could dissipate if he returns a kick for a touchdown against the Ravens in the AFC divisional playoff game Saturday night. "That's just the way it is," Simpson said almost half-apologetically Tuesday before practice at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center. "I'm sorry if I do, but we've got goals here. This is my new family now." Simpson, 5 feet 9 and 216 pounds, has been the team's primary kick returner, averaging 23.6 yards and taking one back 93 yards for a touchdown in a 35-31 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Dec. 17. There is some question, however, whether Simpson, who has also been a reserve tailback, will field kickoffs Saturday night.

For five seasons, Morgan State's roster has been somewhat of a patchwork project, with transfers from Division I-A programs providing the patches. Coach Donald Hill-Eley inherited a program that had been in the doldrums for more than two decades, and building from the bottom - while not sacrificing the present - meant plugging in with players with experience. But that approach will change after the Bears (5-5) conclude the season today at Hughes Stadium against South Carolina State (5-4)

The first time Chad Simpson imposed his will on a football field was around the age of 12 while he was playing for a Pop Warner youth team in Miami. "He played nose guard, and the coach told him if he got five sacks he could play running back," said Mary Simpson, his mother. "He got his five sacks, and he's been a running back ever since." Simpson's path to the NFL faced bigger roadblocks over the years. That path brought him to Baltimore in 2006, when he transferred from South Florida to Morgan State, and it brings him back Sunday to play for the Indianapolis Colts in a big AFC matchup with the Ravens.

Morgan State caught Jerrell Guyton on the rebound. Guyton wanted to play football for Texas Southern in Houston in 2004, but detoured to Morgan State and Baltimore after a chance meeting with Bears coach Donald Hill-Eley. From such quirks, college football legends are sometimes made. A native of Miami, Guyton effectively opened a pipeline to that football-rich area for Hill-Eley. When the Bears open their season tomorrow night at home against Savannah State, their roster will number 18 Floridians, the second most by state after Maryland's 24. "Florida has been major for us," Hill-Eley said.
