WASHINGTON - With time running short, the nation's health care rolls still aren't filling up fast enough.
New signup numbers Wednesday showed progress for President Barack Obama's health care law, but not enough to guarantee that Americans who want and need coverage by Jan. 1 will be able to get it.
Crunch time is now, as people face a Dec. 23 deadline to sign up if they are to have coverage by New Year's.

Shanahan cited the need for Griffin to have a full offseason of development after missing this year's workouts while rehabbing from knee surgery.
