Commanders will not activate DE Chase Young vs. Texans

HOUSTON -- Washington Commanders defensive end Chase Young will have to wait another week to return. Washington did not activate him to the 53-man roster so he wont play at the Houston Texans Sunday. Washington coach Ron Rivera said Friday that they will most certainly activate him before Wednesday. Young, who opened the season on the physically unable to perform list, started practicing on Nov. 2. Washingtons 21-day window to either activate him or place him on injured reserve is Tuesday. Young tore his right ACL on Nov. 14 last year and doctors needed to repair his knee by grafting the healthy patellar tendon graft from his left knee, adding to his recovery. Rivera said trainers told him Youngs knee is fine; he just needs to regain the confidence to push off hard on his right leg. When you talk to the trainers and listen to the strength conditioning guys, theres nothing else they can do for him, Rivera said. Now its about the football part...

In 2018, while playing for Western Michigan, he ran for 34 yards on seven carries in WMUs 49-3 loss in the Big House. Illinois (7-3) enters the game on a two-game losing streak, dropping home games to Michigan...

Judge dismisses Patrick Reeds defamation lawsuit vs. Golf Channel

A federal judge in Florida on Friday dismissed golfer Patrick Reeds $750 million defamation lawsuit against Brandel Chamblee, the Golf Channel and others. U.S. District Court Judge Timothy J. Corrigan has given Reed until Dec. 16 to file an amended complaint. The defendants have until Jan. 13 to respond.

Reed attempts to allege various defamation and civil conspiracy violations against each Defendant; causes of action which require vastly different factual allegations, Corrigan wrote. The Court is dismissing Reeds Complaint without prejudice. In his amended complaint, Reed is instructed to incorporate into each count only the factual allegations that are relevant to the respective causes of action. In the original...

Giannis Antetokounmpo: Didnt mean to knock over ladder, only work on free throws after horrible night

PHILADELPHIA -- Following Milwaukees 110-102 loss to Philadelphiaat Wells Fargo Center on Friday night, a strange scene unfolded between Buckssuperstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, 76ersreserve center Montrezl Harrell, and a ladder, culminating with Antetokounmpo pushing a 12-foot ladder out of his way and having it skid a few feet before falling on its side. Ive never tried to disrespect anyone in any way, shape or form, Antetokounmpo said once he eventually spoke, more than an hour after the game. I feel like today is just an unfortunate event that took place. What set these events in motion was a second straight dreadful game at the free throw line for Antetokounmpo, who went 4-for-15 on Friday. This came after a 4-for-11 night at the line in Wednesdays victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. So, after returning to the locker room following Fridays game, Antetokounmpo came back to practice free throws. It was at that point,...

Late benching bugs Bulls Zach LaVine: You play a guy like me

CHICAGO -- After converting just 1 of his 14 shots and with the team trying to rally from a double-digit deficit, Bullsstar Zach LaVine was benched for the final 3:43 of Fridays 108-107 loss to the Orlando Magic, a decision LaVine said he disagreed with after the game. I got to do a better job at the beginning of the game to make my shots, but you play a guy like me down the stretch, said LaVine, who finished with four points. Thats what I do. Do I like the decision? No. Do I have to live with it? Yeah. Be ready to put my shoes on and play the next game. In addition to sitting at the end of the game, LaVine, who made the All-Star team the last two seasons, was also absent from the floor for a long stretch during the second half, sitting from six minutes remaining in the third quarter to the 8:50 mark in the fourth. During that span, the Bulls cut a 16-point Magic lead to four points. Chicago still trailed by four points when coach Billy...

Mavericks Luka Doncic second-fastest to 50 triple-doubles

Doncics 33-point, 12-rebound, 11-assist performance in Fridays 127-99 win over the visiting Denver Nuggets made him the 10th player in NBA history to record 50 career triple-doubles. Doncic accomplished the feat in his 278th career game, one fewer than it took Johnson. Only Oscar Robertson (111) needed fewer games to get 50 triple-doubles. Hes already rewriting the record book, said Mavs coach Jason Kidd, who took 649 games to record 50 triple-doubles in his playing career. Thats pretty cool. ... Oscar is pretty special, so now to be right there behind Oscar being second fastest to 50 just shows you how special he is. It was also the 25th time that Doncic has scored at least 30 points in a triple-double. That ranks fifth in NBA history, according to ESPN Stats & Information research, trailing only Robertson, ...

Dodgers non-tender Cody Bellinger, making him a free agent

Cody Bellinger, a 27-year-old outfielder who was an MVP as recently as 2019, was non-tendered by the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, a somewhat expected move that nonetheless encapsulates his precipitous downfall offensively. Bellinger was due to make something in the neighborhood of $18 million in 2023, which would have been his final season before free agency. Instead, hell venture into the free agent market a year early, though the Dodgers and Bellingers agent, Scott Boras, can renegotiate a different contract, perhaps one that covers multiple years at a lower rate. Regardless, a Dodgers team coming off back-to-back 100-plus-win seasons is in sudden need of a center fielder -- and has cleared more than $100 million from its books, with the likes of Trea Turner, Justin Turner, Craig Kimbrel, Tyler Anderson, Andrew Heaney and David Price off the roster. Bellinger continued to provide Gold Glove-caliber defense at that...

Source: Commanders discipline players for drinking on plane

ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Commanders disciplined a handful of players for violating a league rule about drinking on a team plane, but the league will take no further action, a source confirmed to ESPN on Friday. The NFL sent a memo to every team Friday afternoon from commissioner Roger Goodell, reminding them of the rule and that any violations would result in significant discipline. After the Tennessee Titans win over the Green Bay Packerson Thursday night, Titans offensive coordinator Todd Downing was arrested for DUI early Friday. Washington quarterback Taylor Heinicke was among the handful of players shown on video with alcohol following Mondays win at Philadelphia. On the team plane, players mimicked Minnesotas celebration with its quarterback Kirk Cousins by placing chains around Heinickes neck. He was shown holding Busch Light beer. On Tuesday morning, Washington coach Ron Rivera called the...

Saints QB Jameis Winston says not playing hurts my soul

METAIRIE, La. -- New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston said he didnt think he would permanently lose his starting job to Andy Dalton after getting injured early in the season. But the job is Daltons for at least another week after Saints coach Dennis Allen announced Wednesday that he wouldnt be making a switch. Dalton has been the starting quarterback since the Saints game against the Minnesota Vikings in London on Oct. 2. Allen hinted at the beginning of this week that he was considering a quarterback change because of offensive struggles for the past two games, but he ultimately decided against it. Winston said he was under the impression that he would eventually return as the starter after a conversation with Allen in London. Allen said at the time that he was resting Winston to allow his back and foot injuries to heal, but he decided Dalton would be the starter a few weeks later, as long as the offense continued to perform well. I...

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson battling illness but OK for Sunday

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has proven adept at eluding pass-rushers and defensive linemen, but apparently not illness. Jackson missed practice Friday because he was once again sick but coach John Harbaugh expressed confidence that the two-time Pro Bowl quarterback will start Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. Hell be fine, Harbaugh said after practice. He tried to get to practice but he was just too sick. Asked if hell play Sunday, Harbaugh replied, Oh yeah. It was a surprise when Jackson was not present at practice but the reason was not a shock. This marked the sixth time that Jackson has been sidelined by illness in the regular season since the start of the 2021 season. Last November, Jackson couldnt play a Week 11 game in Chicago because he was too sick and backup Tyler Huntley led Baltimore to a 16-13 win over the Bears. Last year, Jackson said he wasnt worried about the number of...

U.S. tamps down Russias update on Brittney Griner talks

A potentially promising Russian statement about negotiations to bring Brittney Griner home was met with quick dismissal from the U.S. Department of State on Friday. Sergei Ryabkov, the Russian deputy foreign minister, was quoted by Russian media early in the day saying there was new activity in talks that could see convicted arms dealer Viktor Bout, who is currently serving 25 years in a U.S. prison, returned to Russia. We havent found common ground yet, but, undoubtedly, Viktor Bout is among those being discussed and obviously we are hoping for a positive result, Ryabkov reportedly said. The Americans are showing certain activity and we are working on this through appropriate channels. But a State Department spokesperson fired back that Russia still has not seriously engaged in negotiations, no matter what Ryabkov said. We are not going to comment on the specifics of any proposals other than to say that we have made a substantial offer that the Russian Federation...

Steelers Minkah Fitzpatrick set to play after appendectomy

PITTSBURGH -- With no injury designation on the Pittsburgh Steelers final injury report, Pro Bowl safety Minkah Fitzpatrick is set to play against the Cincinnati Bengals a week after undergoing an appendectomy. The worry is when they cut you open, they cut through muscle, obviously to get into your stomach, he said, also telling ESPN that doctors initially told him it could take 10 days to two weeks to recover. So you just want to make sure that thats healed properly before you get out there and go. Fitzpatrick had his appendix removed following Saturdays team walk-through prior to the win against the New Orleans Saints. Less than a day later, he was at Acrisure Stadium to cheer on his teammates. Though he didnt practice Wednesday, Fitzpatrick participated in team conditioning Tuesday and fully practiced Thursday and Friday. Thats the dog in him, man, safety Damontae Kazee said. I always tell Minkah, when I go home, Ill be...

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- In the hours after the decision was made to move the Buffalo Bills home game against the Cleveland Browns to Ford Field in Detroit, the area surrounding Highmark Stadium received three feet of snow with more expected to fall. The Bills made the decision to cancel Fridays practice for the safety of players and staff; however, the team is meeting virtually. A handful of players who live in the area of Orchard Park, New York, are among those without power. The game remains scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. ET on CBS. I want to make sure I can look guys in the eye and most of the guys were able to get on, staff included, coach Sean McDermott said of the teams morning Zoom.

Kawhi Leonard nets 6 points in 25 minutes of Clippers return

LOS ANGELES -- Saying that the recovery from a torn ACL can be a two-year process, Kawhi Leonard returned to the court and started his first game of the season for the LA Clippers on Thursday. Leonard played 25 minutes, scoring six points, grabbing five rebounds and dishing four assists to help the Clippers pull out an ugly 96-91 win over the Detroit Pistons at Crypto.com Arena. Afterward, Leonard would not go into detail about what kept him out of 12 straight games after he began the season playing in two of the first three games off the bench for the Clippers.

Aaron Rodgers takes blame for missed throws as Packers fall to 4-7

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers used to thrive in these conditions: cold, snowy and under the lights at Lambeau Field. Its when the Green Bay Packers quarterback has done some of his best work. Instead, Rodgers missed open receivers, took a sack at an inopportune time and rendered last weeks season-saving upset of the Dallas Cowboys practically meaningless Thursday night in a 27-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans at Lambeau Field that dropped the Packers to 4-7. And Rodgers knew it. Ive got to throw the ball better than I did tonight, Rodgers said after going 24-for-39 for 227 yards and two touchdowns. Not a lot of margin for error for us and definitely not against a team that gives you some opportunities. Weve got to have those plays. Among the ones Rodgers meant came in the fourth quarter, a play the Packers had to convert in order to mount any type of comeback. Like on third-and-12 with 9:23 left, when he over-led a wide open ...
