WitP: Ikaika, Mouton, Owens, Sol, Pisa

Miami coach Tony Sparano says the Ikaika Alama-Francis is close to being back in playing shape.
Linebacker Ikaika Alama-Francis will practice today and Sparano said he is "close" to being back to his full weight and being able to play in a game.
Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean writes that Ryan Mouton should be seeing more playing time due to a teammate's injury.
When Jason McCourty suffered a fractured forearm on Sunday, the Titans knew they would be without their starting cornerback for several weeks.

The injury puts rookie Alterraun Verner on the spot. It also moves second-year cornerback Ryan Mouton up in the pecking order. He will be on the field for plenty of snaps this Sunday when the Titans play host to the Broncos.
Chad Owens earned CFL special teams player-of-the-month honors, and Solomon Elimimian was runner-up for defensive player-of-the-month.
Argos kick returner Chad Owens earned the nod as special teams player of the month after tallying 639 kick return yards for an average of 159.8 yards per game and one punt return touchdown. He had 287 yards on kickoff returns, 241 on punts, and 111 on missed field goals.
Pisa Tinoisamoa talks about Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers secretly treating him and his Bears teammates to dinner.
"So I see the [restaurant] guy helping out Aaron Rodgers [to get a table], and I'm like 'This can't be happening.'

"So I walk over, interrupt, and say 'You're not going to sit a Packer down before you sit a Bear down, are you?' The guy was like, of course not, what do you mean...oh, you're Bears player, OK."

Tinoisamoa, Clark and Roach proceeded to exchange pleasantries with Rodgers, before the two parties went their separate ways. The encounter with the rival quarterback faded into the backdrop, until it came time to settle up the tab.
