NFL appeals Ezekiel Elliott's injunction to 5th Circuit

  
The NFL filed an emergency motion in federal appeals court Friday, hoping to get a swift ruling on its request to overrule a judge who blocked a six-game suspension for star Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott in a domestic violence case in Ohio. The league filed its request with the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, even though a federal judge in Texas hasn't ruled on a request to put the injunction on hold while an appeal is pursued. The emergency motion asks the court to rule on the request to suspend U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant's injunction as early as Tuesday, the start of the practice week before the Cowboys' third game of the season against Arizona. If the ruling isn't made by Tuesday, the NFL is asking for a decision by Sept. 26, the start of practice before Dallas' Week 4 home game against the Los Angeles Rams. Elliott had already been cleared to play in a 19-3 win over the New York Giants in the season opener.........

Concerned with Sam Bradford's knee, Vikings promote practice squad QB

  
PITTSBURGH -- With concern regarding the health of Sam Bradford's injured left knee, the Minnesota Vikings promoted practice squad quarterback Kyle Sloter to the 53-man roster on Saturday, the team announced. A source told ESPN's Chris Mortensen that Bradford underwent an MRI on his knee on Tuesday, though the scan did not reveal any specific damage. The quarterback experienced pain, swelling and discomfort in his left knee after the Vikings' season-opening win over the Saints -- the same knee he had surgery on in 2013 and 2014 to repair a torn ACL. Having three quarterbacks on the active roster foreshadows elevated concern about whether Bradford will be ready to go on Sunday. Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said he "anticipated" Bradford will start when he spoke with the media on Friday after practice. Bradford is traveling with the team to Pittsburgh and was officially listed as "questionable" on the injury report. If Bradford is sidelined for Sunday's.........

NFLPA recognizes Colin Kaepernick with weekly community MVP award

  
The NFL Players Association has chosen Colin Kaepernick as its Week 1 community MVP for his efforts to raise money for various charities. Kaepernick has donated $100,000 per month to various charities as part of a $1 million pledge he made in 2016. In September, he gave $25,000 each to after-school program DREAM, the Coalition for the Homeless, the Gathering for Justice's War on Children and United We Dream. He also organized a backpack giveaway for a Girls Club in New York. The free-agent quarterback remains unsigned after terminating his contract with the San Francisco 49ers earlier this year. He was still eligible for the NFLPA recognition as a dues-paying member of the union who is actively seeking employment. The NFLPA will donate $10,000 to Kaepernick's foundation or a charity of his choosing. ......

USF's Charlie Strong: We wanted night to be 'special' for Irma victims

  
TAMPA, Fla. -- South Florida?rolled up nearly 700 yards on Illinois in a 47-23 win, and afterward, coach Charlie Strong said he and his players were determined to make Friday night special for all those impacted by Hurricane Irma. Strong praised his team's resiliency after it played the game with just three practices during the week, but he also made sure to note there were more than 3,000 high school players and coaches and 2,100 first responders who attended the game for free, at his urging. About the only downer Friday night was the cancellation of a pregame honor for first responders. A group of 20, largely from the Tampa Police Department, was set to run onto the field with the football team, but it didn't happen because of a weather delay. "I'm very proud of this football team and just the way we came out and responded tonight," Strong said. "We wanted to make this night special. We felt we had a chance to give back to the city.........

Ravens' Kenneth Dixon suspended for violating substance abuse policy

  
OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens running back Kenneth Dixon was suspended for the second time in six months Friday, when the NFL announced he is banned for an additional two games for violating the league's substance abuse policy. His latest suspension will start after the conclusion of a four-game ban, which was issued in March after he violated the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy. Dixon will serve his suspensions while on injured reserve this season, meaning he will not have to miss additional games when healthy but will lose $190,588 in pay for the six games. He suffered a season-ending knee injury just before the start of training camp in late July. The Ravens could question whether they can count on Dixon going forward considering his recent suspensions and injury history. Dixon, a fourth-round pick in 2016, had a promising rookie season in which he ran for 382 yards and two touchdowns. He was expected to compete.........

Ringside Seat: The complete guide to Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin

  
LAS VEGAS -- Sports fans had to wait five years to finally see the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight, and when it was finally made in 2015, it set all the box office records but turned out to be a terrible fight past its expiration date. The next must-see fight demanded by the public was a showdown between superstar Canelo Alvarez, who along with unified heavyweight titleholder Anthony Joshua, is the face of boxing in the post-MayPac era, and unified middleweight world champion/knockout machine Gennady Golovkin. Yes, it took time for the sides to make a deal and, sure, many would have liked to have seen it about 18 months ago, but all things considered the wait was not that long, relatively speaking. Golovkin's side was always ready, willing and able to make the fight, but Alvarez promoter Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions wasn't ready to risk his cash cow before he felt he was ready and had grown into a true middleweight. But he kept his promise.........

UFC reinstates Daniel Cormier as champion following Jon Jones ruling

  
The UFC reinstated Daniel Cormier as its light heavyweight champion Wednesday night, in the wake of Jon Jones' failed drug test prior to UFC 214 in July. The announcement was made shortly after the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) officially changed the result of Jones' third-round TKO victory over Cormier on July 29 to a no-contest. In an appearance on UFC Tonight, Cormier (19-1) suggested he didn't want the title back at first, but ultimately was going to fight for the belt either way and accepted reinstatement for financial reasons. "I talked to [CSAC] and was like, 'I lost. I lost the fight,'" Cormier said. "As a competitor, that's how I felt. [UFC president] Dana White called me today and said, 'If it's a no-contest, then the fight didn't happen.' "Now, people will say stuff like, 'You got handed the belt.' He cheated. The reality is, for me to say, 'I don't want this title,' when I was going to be [fighting] in a.........

J.J. Watt tells Houston to stay safe; Glover Quin concerned for family

  
Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt posted a video message and donated $100,000 to an online fundraiser that he started Sunday while Houston was being hit by flooding from Tropical Storm Harvey. The Texans could not get back to Houston after Saturday night's preseason game in New Orleans and flew to Dallas to wait out the storm. Watt posted a message on social media, urging everyone in Houston to stay safe. "I'm sitting here watching the news and checking the internet and seeing everything that's going on with Hurricane Harvey and the damage it's causing back home," Watt said. "It's very difficult. It's very difficult not only because we have family and friends back there, some guys have young kids, some guys have wives and families. "But that's our city. It's very tough to watch your city get hit by such a bad storm and not be there to help. Not be there to help with the recovery. Not be there to help with the.........

Packers' Martellus Bennett fined for defending Aaron Rodgers; Seahawks' Jeremy Lane not fined

  
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Defending Aaron Rodgers cost Martellus Bennett $9,115. The Green Bay Packers tight end was fined by the NFL for his unnecessary roughness penalty in Sunday's regular-season opener against Seattle. But Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane, who was ejected from the game, was not docked any money. Bennett came to the defense of his quarterback. He took exception to Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright's tackle on Rodgers' fourth-quarter scramble for a first down. Rodgers did not slide and Wright tackled him. Bennett gave Wright a two-handed shove. "It's my quarterback," Bennett said after the game. "I've always got his back. It's a bad penalty at that moment in time, but I thought it was a cheap shot. I saw him out of my peripheral, which isn't the best all the time. I always protect the quarterback. I'll never let anybody take a cheap shot on my guy. That's any guy on the team. I've got everybody's back." Rodgers said.........

Source: Odell Beckham is trending in right direction

  
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Another day, another step in the right direction for New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. He was a limited participant at practice for the second straight day and there is a realistic shot barring a setback to his injured left ankle of Beckham playing Monday night against the Detroit Lions, a source told ESPN. Everything is trending in the right direction. Beckham returned to practice Thursday for the first time in 24 days. He was back on the field moving around well Friday, when he even made an impressive one-handed, left-handed catch in the back of the end zone during a drill (against no defender). The Giants seemed pleased with his progress. "He responded well to treatment," coach Ben McAdoo said after practice. "He responded well to his work [Thursday]. Got a little bit more [Friday], but he's still limited." Right tackle Bobby Hart (ankle) and linebacker Keenan.........

Red Sox, Yankees fined separately as part of MLB investigation into sign-stealing

  
The Boston Red Sox have been fined an undisclosed amount by Major League Baseball in the aftermath of employing electronic gadgets in a high-tech sign-stealing scheme they ran on the New York Yankees. "I have decided to fine the Red Sox an undisclosed amount which in turn will be donated by my office to hurricane relief efforts in Florida," commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement. "Moreover, all 30 clubs have been notified that future violations of this type will be subject to more serious sanctions, including the possible loss of draft picks." Manfred also said the Yankees were fined a lesser undisclosed amount because, in the course of MLB's investigation of the Red Sox sign-stealing scheme, the Yankees had violated a rule governing the use of the dugout phone. Sign stealing, as a practice, isn't prohibited by MLB. In fact, it has surreptitiously been happening for years in various ways, typically with a runner on second base peeking in to.........

Vikings still optimistic that Sam Bradford will play vs. Steelers

  
The Minnesota Vikings have some concerns about quarterback Sam Bradford's left knee but remain cautiously optimistic about his status for Sunday's game, a source told ESPN on Friday. Bradford on Tuesday had an MRI on the knee after another source told ESPN that the quarterback had experienced swelling, pain and discomfort following Monday night's victory over the New Orleans Saints. The source said the MRI did not reveal any specific damage but that scans do not always offer a clear picture in a knee that has undergone multiple ACL repairs.?It is the same knee that underwent ACL repairs in 2013 and 2014, when Bradford was with the Rams. On Friday, coach Mike Zimmer would not comment on the report. "I'm not going to talk about who has had MRIs or who hasn't had MRIs," Zimmer said. "Lots of guys have MRIs." Bradford has been listed as a limited participant on the team's practice reports all week, but the source said the thought was.........

Source: Texans CB Kevin Johnson expected to miss 4-6 weeks due to sprained MCL

  
HOUSTON -- Houston Texans cornerback Kevin Johnson suffered a sprained MCL and is expected to miss four to six weeks, pending further testing, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Johnson, the Texans' 2015 first round pick, was ruled out with a left knee injury in the third quarter of the Texans' 13-9 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night. He was checked out on the field by the Texans' medical staff before walking off the field without any assistance. He had four tackles before his injury. The Texans have relied on Johnson this season after A.J. Bouye, the team's top cornerback last season, signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars in March. Johnson only played in six games last season before he broke his foot and was out for the rest of the season. The Texans also lost veteran cornerback Johnathan Joseph in the second quarter with a shoulder injury. ......

Peter Uihlein leads Web.com Tour Finals event in Boise

  
BOISE, Idaho -- Peter Uihlein shot a 9-under 62 to take the lead at the Albertsons Boise Open on Thursday, two weeks after wrapping up a PGA Tour card with a victory in the Web.com Tour Finals opener. Uihlein birdied five of his last seven holes at Hillcrest Country Club. He had a one-stroke lead over Alex Cejka in the second of four events that will determine 25 PGA Tour cards. Uihlein won the series opener in Columbus, Ohio. The 28-year-old former Oklahoma State player from Massachusetts has played four seasons on the European Tour, winning the 2013 Madeira Islands Open. "I've been wedging the ball really well, and I've been putting it nicely and driving it straight," Uihlein said. "If I feel like I do those well, I can make a lot of birdies and get it going. That's really been the key." The 2010 U.S. Amateur champ spent the week between events boarding up his house in Jupiter, Florida, to protect it from Hurricane Irma, then.........

NFL to appeal Ezekiel Elliott's injunction to 5th Circuit

  
FRISCO, Texas -- The NFL has taken steps to reverse a judge's preliminary injunction that blocks the six-game suspension of? Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott?for violating the personal conduct policy. First, the league asked Judge Amos Mazzant for an emergency stay of the preliminary injunction that he put into place Friday. Second, the NFL filed a notice of appeal with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. On Monday, Mazzant did order the NFL Players Association to file a response to the NFL's request for a stay by Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET. The NFL will have until 6 p.m. Friday to file its response. If the judge will not reverse his decision, it's not clear how quickly an appeal will be heard. If Mazzant's initial decision is overturned, then Elliott's suspension could go into effect immediately. Elliott was eligible to play Sunday against the New York Giants, but without Mazzant's ruling he would have.........

CFL extends window to mull Johnny Manziel possibility

  
The CFL is weighing whether to allow quarterback Johnny Manziel to play in the league this season, according to a statement that confirmed Manziel's interest in resuming his pro career. Manziel's CFL rights are owned by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, who placed him on their negotiation list -- the league's process of intaking international players -- several years ago. According to league policy, any player on the list can trigger a 10-day window in which the team must either offer a contract or renounce his rights.? Manziel's agent recently notified Hamilton of his intent to start the 10-day clock, but the CFL said Friday it had extended the window so the league itself could "facilitate a process of evaluation for the player."? No timetable for the unusual extension was provided. The CFL's statement was first reported by TSN. Manziel, 24, hasn't played since the Cleveland Browns released him in March 2016 after two disastrous seasons marked by.........

Bengals fire offensive coordinator Ken Zampese after 0-2 start

  
CINCINNATI -- The Bengals on Friday fired offensive coordinator Ken Zampese following the team's lackluster 0-2 start, marking the first time in the 50-year history of the organization that a coordinator has been fired during the season. The Bengals said quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor will immediately assume coordinator duties in place of Zampese, who was with the Bengals for 15 seasons; he started as their quarterbacks coach before being promoted to offensive coordinator last season. "Ken Zampese has done a tremendous job for us for my 15 years here, and I have the utmost respect for Ken as a person and as a coach," coach Marvin Lewis said in a statement. "But I feel it best for the football team to breathe new life into the offense, and that's why I am making the change. "Bill Lazor has great experience in the league and as a coordinator, and I feel Bill can progress our offense the way we need. We have a lot of talent on offense, and we need to keep working.........

QB Andrew Luck committed to Colts, agent says

  
The agent for Andrew Luck on Wednesday said the quarterback is committed to the Indianapolis Colts and that there is "no truth" that he wants out of his long-term deal with the team. Earlier Wednesday, ESPN's Mike Greenberg said on Mike & Mike that there have been rumblings of a gap between Luck and the Colts and that his time could be winding down in Indianapolis. "Quite simply and succinctly, there's no truth to that comment at all," Will Wilson, Luck's agent, told WTHR-TV's Bob Kravitz. "Andrew did a long-term deal and he did it for a reason: He wants to be with the Colts and he's committed to the Colts. It's as simple as that. He looks forward to the opportunity to play when he's ready. He wants to get out there when he's ready, obviously. He's just going through rehab; it's the process he's going through." Wilson reiterated that in a statement to ESPN. "Any rumor/speculation about Andrew being disgruntled with the Colts or wanting a trade is.........

Broncos' Jared Crick to have back surgery

  
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- When Denver Broncos coach Vance Joseph said this week the team wanted to get defensive end? Jared Crick ready to be healthy "in the future,'' he meant well after this week. Crick, who has practiced just twice since suffering a back injury in mid-August, will have back surgery, sources confirmed to ESPN. Recovery time varies greatly with back surgeries, but Crick will likely be moved to injured reserve to see if he can return this season, and the Broncos will sign former Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin. Rubin, 31, was among the Seahawks' final roster cuts earlier this month after the team had traded for Sheldon Richardson. Rubin started every game of the previous two seasons with the Seahawks. Crick, 28, left the Broncos' Aug. 15 practice with what was then called back spasms. He practiced one day last week, in the days before the regular-season opener, but then did not.........

NBA evaluating draft lottery reform to discourage tanking

  
The NBA is aggressively pursuing draft lottery reform that could be voted into legislation and instituted by the 2019 draft, league sources told ESPN. Commissioner Adam Silver is a strong advocate to deincentivize tanking by implementing lower odds on the NBA's worst teams to gain the top picks in the draft, league sources said. The proposed measures would also increase the chances of better teams making a jump into the draft lottery. The NBA's 14 non-playoff teams compromise the league's annual draft lottery system. The NBA competition committee, comprised of several general managers and coaches, is expected to vote next week on sending a formal recommendation to the board of governors for final passage, league sources said. The competition committee is given significant latitude to challenge and amend the league office's proposals, and thus could recommend none, part, or all of a proposal for the league owners to vote upon at its late September.........

NHL announces league not going to 2018 Olympics in South Korea

  
The National Hockey League announced Monday that it would not be sending its players to the Olympics in South Korea in 2018, ending months of debate over the issue of participation in Pyeongchang. The league had been looking for conciliatory offers from the International Olympic Committee and/or the NHL Players' Association in order to placate an ownership group increasingly unhappy with the league shutting down for weeks to take part in the Olympic tournament every four years. That didn't happen in recent weeks, and the league made good on its promise to resolve the matter before the start of the Stanley Cup playoffs, which begin April 13. "In an effort to create clarity among conflicting reports and erroneous speculation, this will confirm our intention to proceed with finalizing our 2017-18 Regular Season schedule without any break to accommodate the Olympic Winter Games," the league said in a release distributed Monday afternoon. "We now consider the matter.........

Gennady Golovkin finally gets the fight he wants

  
LAS VEGAS -- On May 6, moments after Canelo Alvarez finished rolling over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in a shutout decision that wasn't competitive for a moment, Gennady Golovkin's ring walk music -- The White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army" -- hit, and the T-Mobile Arena crowd suddenly perked up and erupted in cheers. In pure WWE style, Alvarez had called Golovkin to the ring to tell him he was next, and GGG made his way to the ring for a joint interview to close the HBO PPV telecast. At long last, the mega match had been made official nearly two years after it had become the next must-see fight in boxing, but put off by Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions, Alvarez's promoter, who didn't want to risk his cash cow just yet while allowing him to grow into a true middleweight. However long it took, Golovkin finally has the big fight he craved and dreamed of for years. Golovkin and Alvarez will meet to determine middleweight supremacy and.........
