For the seventh consecutive year, the Dallas Cowboys are the NFL’s most valuable franchise, according to Forbes magazine.

The magazine puts a value of $2.3 billion on the Cowboys, who recently completed a 25-year, $500 million stadium naming rights deal with AT&T.

The Cowboys were one of five teams to post double-digit percentage gains in value from a year ago, along with the New England Patriots, Houston Texans, Atlanta Falcons and St. Louis Rams.

As a league, the NFL total value rose 5 percent with an average value of $1.17 billion for each of its 32 franchises.

Brady hurts knee

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady suffered a left knee injury when he was knocked down during a joint practice Wednesday with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Bucs defensive end Adrian Clayborn pushed Patriots left tackle Nate Solder into Brady, who went down and immediately grabbed his left knee. Brady, a two-time MVP, walked off the practice field and did not return.

ESPN reported the MRI on Brady’s knee was negative and that his availability is considered day-to-day. A person with knowledge of the injury told The Associated Press it was a sprained knee.

Brady tore a ligament in his left knee in the 2008 season opener and missed the rest of the season. He has played every game since returning.


• Dolphins: Kicker Dan Carpenter was released after five seasons in Miami. Carpenter was set to earn $2.675 million this season. The Dolphins will go with Caleb Sturgis, the fifth-round pick out of Florida, who made both field goal attempts against Jacksonville, including a 58-yarder.

• Rams: Linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar was suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the league’s performance-enhancing substances policy. The sixth-year player from Boston College played his first four seasons in New Orleans.

• Bills: Quarterback Kevin Kolb, a Stephenville High School graduate, will start Friday night against Minnesota. Kolb didn’t play in the preseason opener after hurting his knee slipping on a rubber mat.

• 49ers: Defensive end Demarcus Dobbs was suspended one game for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. Dobbs was arrested for DUI and marijuana possession last November.

• Broncos: Linebacker Von Miller was arrested Sunday for failure to appear in court on careless driving, driving without a license and driving without proof of insurance charges. ... Pro personnel director Tom Heckert will return to work Thursday after a month’s suspension for a DUI arrest.

• Redskins: Veteran receiver Devery Henderson, who was signed in June after spending nine years in New Orleans, was released.
