NFL-National Football League roundup (Reuters) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
The NFL suspended Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus without pay for the first game of the 2015 season for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Jets' McDougle returns to field after missing last season (The Associated Press) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
Dexter McDougle took a few speedy steps toward making good on a promise he made to himself - and New York Jets fans - nearly a year ago. ''I'm blessed to be out there getting reps again,'' McDougle said after practice Wednesday. Three days after making his NFL debut in the Jets' preseason opener against Indianapolis, McDougle was participating in a 1-on-1 drill on Aug. 10 with wide receiver Stephen Hill when he went down in a heap after getting a cleat caught in the grass.

Four cities invited to bid on 2019 Super Bowl, Los Angeles in mix for 2020 (Shutdown Corner) Courtesy of
The locations for the next three Super Bowls are already set in stone (Santa Clara, Calif., Houston, and Minneapolis), but there are a number of cities in the running to host the big game in 2019 and 2020. According to the Miami Herald , Miami, along with New Orleans, Atlanta and Tampa were all invited by the NFL to bid on Super Bowls LIII and LIV. Additionally, the Los Angeles Times is reporting that Los Angeles “will be considered a potential host city” in 2020 (Super Bowl LIV), as long as “the market has at least one NFL team by then.” A Super Bowl hasn’t been played in Southern California since 2003, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Oakland Raiders at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego. Los Angeles has hosted seven Super Bowls – five at the Rose Bowl and two at the Coliseum. The league won’t make its decision until next May for the 2019 game. The city that wins that bid is taken out of the running for the following Super Bowl, narrowing the field by one.  Of the available cities, Miami and New Orleans have each hosted the big game 10 times, while Tampa and Atlanta have hosted four and two times, respectively. The newly built Sun Life Stadium (Miami) and the new Atlanta Falcons stadium, slated to open in 2017, make those two cities attractive options. Of course, the NFL’s familiarity with New Orleans and Tampa make them comfortable choices as well, but the emergence of Los Angeles – the country’s second-biggest media market – could raise the intrigue level when the votes are finally tallied next May.  - - - - - - - Sam Cooper is a contributor for the Yahoo Sports blogs.
