JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- Police in Jersey City say they've been trying to contact Tennessee Titans wide receiver and former Rutgers star Kenny Britt to question him about an incident Sunday in which he allegedly drove a friend to the hospital after the man had been stabbed at a party.
Capt. Edgar Martinez says police need to interview everyone who was present at a Jersey City house party Sunday in which someone fired a gun through a first floor window and Britt's friend was stabbed. No one was struck in the shooting, Martinez said.
"We need to interview all the parties involved, and (Britt) has refused to come in, so the statements that he's putting out that he's cooperated with the investigation are false. We're trying to ascertain his location," Martinez said, adding that authorities are discussing their next steps with the Hudson County Prosecutor's office.
"There was a stabbing and a shooting in the same incident -- and we need to speak to everyone who was there," Martinez said. "(Britt) drove the guy to the hospital. (Britt) was at a dinner, the party, with his pregnant girlfriend."
Britt's agent, Bill Johnson, did not immediately respond to an email from the AP. The Titans also had no immediate comment Monday.
NFL officials will be looking into this latest incident involving Britt and police.
AP Source: Pats' Gronkowski has surgery on arm
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has undergone surgery on his broken left arm, a person with knowledge of the operation tells The Associated Press.
Gronkowski suffered the season-ending injury Sunday when he caught a pass from Tom Brady in the first quarter and landed out of bounds on the arm for an incompletion in New England's 41-28 playoff win over the Houston Texans.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the surgery.
Gronkowski had earlier surgery after breaking his left forearm on Nov. 18 in a 59-24 win over the Indianapolis Colts. He missed five games and returned for the season finale, a 28-0 victory over the Miami Dolphins.
Philadelphia Eagles interviewed Ken Whisenhunt
PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Eagles interviewed former Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt on Monday morning as they continued their search to replace Andy Reid.
Whisenhunt was fired on Dec. 31 after six years in Arizona. He led the Cardinals to their only Super Bowl appearance in his second season and Arizona won its second straight NFC West title the following year. But after a 4-0 start this season, the Cardinals lost 11 of their last 12 to finish 5-11 for the second time in three years.
Dolphins planning $400M in stadium upgrades
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- The Miami Dolphins are unveiling a plan to modernize Sun Life Stadium, and say they're willing to cover the majority of the estimated $400 million cost.
If approved, tax dollars would likely cover the remainder, though the Dolphins say any public money would not result in increased taxes for residents of Miami-Dade County.
The Dolphins' hope is to keep the stadium an attractive destination for major events like Super Bowls and college football's championship games.
Colts hire Jimmy Raye as VP of football operations
INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts have hired Jimmy Raye as their new vice president of football operations. He replaces Tom Telesco, who was named San Diego's general manager late last week.
Raye spent the last five seasons as the Chargers' director of player personnel where he was in charge of the team's pro and college scouting departments and assisted with player personnel matters. Colts GM Ryan Grigson calls Raye a "top-notch" evaluator and says he's eager to work with Raye heading into the off-season.
Raye was a scout for the Chargers from 1996-99, then became the Chargers' director of college scouting until 2007 and was promoted again in 2008. He started his NFL career as Kansas City's quality control coach in 1995.
His father, Jimmy, is on Tampa Bay's coaching staff.
