Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones was accused by police of making offensive comments while drunk during a traffic stop early Monday and was given a disorderly conduct citation.

Jones, who has had a spate of legal troubles, was arrested around 2:30 a.m. after the vehicle he was in was pulled over for driving 60 mph in a 45 mph zone on a highway in Cincinnati, Ohio State Patrol Lt. Anne Ralston said.

The driver was cited for drunken driving while Jones was cited for disorderly conduct. Both charges are misdemeanors.

Jones and the driver were released and have court hearings set for Friday.

Vikings' owners to pay up: A judge in New Jersey ordered Minnesota Vikings owners Zygi and Mark Wilf and their cousin Leonard Wilf to pay $84.5 million to two former business partners who she previously ruled they had defrauded in a 1980s real estate deal.

The ruling covered compensatory and punitive damages to plaintiffs Josef Halpern and Ada Reichmann. It also includes a redistribution of real estate profits dating to the lawsuit's initial filing, in 1992. Attorneys for the Wilfs promised an appeal.

Around the league: Blaine Gabbert is back under center for the winless Jacksonville Jaguars. Gabbert, who missed the last two games after slicing open the back of his throwing hand, will start Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. Coach Gus Bradley wasted little time switching back to Gabbert from Chad Henne, who has one touchdown pass and two interceptions off the bench.

• The Chicago Bears said defensive tackle Henry Melton will miss the rest of the season with knee injury.

• The Buffalo Bills have placed Alex Carrington on season-ending injured reserve after the starting defensive end tore his left quadriceps.
