Josh Brown makes strong NFL return with Bengals

By By JOE KAY

CINCINNATI (AP) - Kicker Josh Brown signed with the Bengals hoping to earn another chance in the NFL. A strong first game was a good first step.

Brown made all of his four field goal tries, including a 52-yarder, during a 20-19 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

The Bengals needed a kicker on short notice when Mike Nugent hurt his right calf during practice last week. They signed Brown, who had been out of the league since the Jets released him at the end of training camp.

Brown spent nine years with Seattle and St. Louis. He spent the last three months keeping his leg in shape by kicking on any field he could find, waiting for another kicker to get hurt or get released.

    When the Reeves Northrup Memorial Bike to the Bay turns 25 this June 21st, it will be extra special for Christine Kajfasz. She has lived with MS for 29 years and will ride in the event for the first time. But this is no easy feet, not for someone with half the horsepower she wishes she could use.
