Guard Westerman retires from Bengals

CINCINNATI (AP) Guard Christian Westerman has left the Bengals to ponder his future, another setback to an offensive line depleted by injuries and retirements.

Garoppolo rebounds from 5-INT practice

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Jimmy Garoppolo relished lining up against another team Friday, and not just because his own defense intercepted five consecutive passes off him at their last practice.
