Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer left practice yesterday with back spasms but is expected to play Sunday against Cleveland.

Palmer, the top pick in last year's draft, has taken every snap in his first season running the offense. He developed back spasms yesterday during the first half of a practice that was closed to the media.

Security, Check

The NFL sent a memo to all of its teams reminding them about the league's commitment to security following last week's brawl at an NBA game. The NFL said no new security measures were needed.

"The league wants to make sure we're being consistent and diligent in respect to our standard security procedures," Detroit Lions spokesman Bill Keenist said yesterday before the team hosted the Indianapolis Colts.

Various authorities are involved in security at Lions games, including FBI agents, Ford Field spokeswoman Risa Balayem said.

Dolphins Sign Garrett

Twelve-year NFL veteran Jason Garrett signed with the Dolphins Wednesday for the remainder of the season, one day after backup quarterback Jay Fiedler was placed on injured reserve with a herniated disk in his neck. Garrett will be the No. 3 quarterback behind starter A.J. Feeley and backup Sage Rosenfels for Miami (1-9).
