Houston Texans running back Arian Foster said he has not spoken with his doctors about "any surgery," disputing a report that he was likely to undergo a heart procedure in about a month.
"I am feeling well and am as exuberant as ever," he said in a prepared statement Friday.
The NFL Network reported Thursday that Foster, 26, was considering an ablation procedure because of a heart condition that forced him from a game late this season. Such a procedure involves use of a catheter to correct structural problems that can lead to an abnormal heartbeat, according to the Mayo Clinic's website.
"As of now, I have no complications with my blood pumper," Foster said.
President's plans: President Barack Obama is hoping for a close game in this year's Super Bowl but hasn't said who he is rooting for when the 49ers and the Ravens square off. White House spokesman Jay Carney said the president will watch Sunday's game and expects it to be highly entertaining.
Dan Marino: Long-married Hall of Famer Dan Marino acknowledged that he fathered an out-of-wedlock child in 2005 with an employee of CBS Sports, where the former quarterback is a pregame analyst.
"This is a personal and private matter. I take full responsibility both personally and financially for my actions now as I did then," he told the New York Post in a written statement.
The paper said Marino, 51, fathered a daughter, with then 35-year-old production assistant Donna Savattere, to whom he has paid millions of dollars. She has since married.
Cowboys: Dallas owner Jerry Jones, in an interview for the team's website, said Jason Garrett has a strong voice in an overhaul of the coaching staff and that his third-year coach is "the right man putting this together."
Jones also said Garrett will decide who calls the offensive plays in 2013. Jones has indicated that Garrett would no longer run the offense on game days.
