Minnesota Vikings rookie Lewis Cine set for surgery on fractured leg

Minnesota Vikings rookie safety Lewis Cine will undergo surgery in London to repair a fractured left leg suffered during Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints, coach Kevin O'Connell said.Cine will remain in the United Kingdom until doctors determine it is safe for him to fly back to Minnesota.O'Connell choked back tears in announcing the details of Cine's injury, which occurred with 1:08 remaining in the first quarter of the Vikings' 28-25 victory. While he was blocking on a punt return, Cine's leg bent unnaturally on the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium playing surface, which is transitioned from grass to artificial turf for NFL games.Cine was immediately fitted with an air cast and taken off the field on a cart."Very tough moment for our team," O'Connell said. "[Cine is] obviously a guy that, from Day 1, has been a personal favorite of mine and does everything we've asked. He was continuing to progress in his rookie year and really had a dynamic role...

Indianapolis Colts LB Shaquille Leonard (back) set to make season debut

INDIANAPOLIS -- Colts linebacker Shaquille Leonard is active for Sunday's home game against the Tennessee Titans, meaning the All-Pro is set to make his 2022 debut after recovering from offseason back surgery.Leonard's rehabilitation ends a years-long battle with ankle and leg pain that was, doctors finally discovered, caused partly by nerve issues originating in Leonard's back. The recovery from the back surgery lingered, but Leonard returns just in time for an important AFC South matchup.The Colts' defense is coming off a strong performance in a win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3, and the addition of Leonard figures to be a boost. Leonard was a big reason the Colts were second in the NFL in turnovers in 2021, producing four interceptions, eight forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries on his own.Through three games, the Colts have produced three turnovers, after forcing nearly two per game last season (33 in 17 games).Leonard isn't...

'Focused on the mission,' interim coach Brent Key, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets upset No. 24 Pittsburgh Panthers

Jeff Sims threw for one touchdown and ran for another as Georgia Tech, less than a week after seeing its coach and athletic director fired, upset No. 24 Pittsburgh 26-21 on Saturday night.Georgia Tech let athletic director Todd Stansbury and coach Geoff Collins go on Monday, two days after a 27-10 loss to UCF that dropped the Yellow Jackets to 1-3 on the season.Collins was in his fourth season as coach, and the loss to the Knights last week was the Yellow Jackets' ninth straight to FBS opponents dating to last season.But interim coach Brent Key rallied the troops as the Yellow Jackets (2-3, 1-1 ACC) authored their best performance of the season. Though they amassed only 17 first downs and 334 total yards, they possessed the ball for 31:04 in the rain in Pittsburgh and churned out a victory as 21.5-point underdogs."I've known these guys have had it in them all along, and we just needed to get them on the same page," Key said in his postgame,...

Lakers' Big Three's new mantra for pushing pace for offense to thrive: 'You get it, go'

TEMECULA, Calif. -- The day after last season mercifully came to an end for the Los Angeles Lakers, Russell Westbrook was asked about LeBron James and Anthony Davis repeatedly stating over the course of the year their intent to "let Russ be Russ" in pursuit of team success."Yeah," Westbrook replied bluntly during his exit interview with reporters, "but that wasn't true."With the first week of training camp in the books as James, Davis and Westbrook near their second season together, that approach has been tweaked.Westbrook is empowered to get his, but so are James and Davis when it comes to getting theirs. No more worrying about stepping on each other's toes; if there's a play to make, go make it."I think the biggest thing was everybody trying to be selfless and now everybody is being aggressive," Davis said after practice Saturday at Pechanga Reservation in front of about 200 reservation residents invited as guests.

Tua Tagovailoa expected to be interviewed as part of NFL-NFLPA investigation into QB's quick return from injury, sources say

Tua Tagovailoa is expected to be interviewed early this week in the NFL and NFL Players Association's joint investigation of the injured Miami Dolphins quarterback's quick return to last weekend's game against the Buffalo Bills, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.The league and players' association indicated Saturday that their review is ongoing while adding they agree that "modifications to the concussion protocol are needed to enhance player safety."A league official told Schefter that the investigation is expected to last another week or two, and the results will be announced "almost immediately after."Tagovailoa is expected to return to the Dolphins' facility Monday, sources told Schefter, as he continues to go through the concussion protocol after the head injury that forced him to leave Thursday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Images of Tagovailoa's brain are being sent to three independent doctors to obtain as many opinions as possible...

Los Angeles Chargers star Joey Bosa expected to miss 8-10 weeks with groin injury, sources say

Los Angeles Chargerspass-rusher Joey Bosa is expected to miss eight to 10 weeks with a groin tear, sources told ESPN.Bosa had surgery Thursday -- one day after being placed on injured reserve -- for the same injury that his brother Nick Bosa suffered at Ohio State.Chargers coach Brandon Staley said this past week that Bosa is "not returning in the near future" but that the four-time Pro Bowler is "optimistic and ready to attack it."Even if Bosa is able to return later this season, he likely will not continue operating as a topflight edge rusher given the timeline by which a player's performance is expected to return after a surgery like Bosa's.Without Bosa, the Chargers will turn to Chris Rumph II and linebacker Kyle Van Noy, who has played the edge. The Chargers also claimed Derrek Tuszka on waivers this past week.Bosa has 1.5 sacks in three games this season and has 59.5 career sacks in seven seasons with the Chargers, who...

Dak Prescott eyes Dallas Cowboys' game vs. Los Angeles Rams in Week 5 for possible return, sources say

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, who had the stitch removed from his surgically repaired thumb and began throwing a football this past week, is eyeing next Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams for a possible return, sources told ESPN.The Cowboys want to make sure that Prescott is as close to 100% healthy as possible and could push back his return until Week 6 against the division rival Philadelphia Eagles, sources said.If Cooper Rush continues to play well Sunday against the Washington Commanders and the Cowboys continue winning with the veteran backup under center, it would buy Dallas even more time for Prescott to fully recover. The two-time Pro Bowler initially was expected to miss six to eight weeks after breaking the thumb on opening night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.Prescott clearly is progressing nicely, however, after the Cowboys elected not to place him on injured reserve. The seven-year veteran is...

Yan Xiaonan survives Mackenzie Dern's grappling in majority-decision victory

Yan Xiaonan put on a show for the fans -- make that fan, singular -- in the main event of UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.Yan got the better of Mackenzie Dern in standup fighting and survived relentless grappling threats by her multiple-time jiu-jitsu world champion opponent to earn a majority-decision victory in a meeting of top-10 strawweights headlining a card at UFC Apex.There were no fans or media in attendance for Saturday's card other than Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg and guests. Zuckerberg was seen on TV sitting in the front row after arranging to have the building all to himself. UFC president Dana White had denied the existence of an arrangement with Zuckerberg earlier in the week.Yan (16-3, 1 NC), who is No. 5 in ESPN's 115-pound rankings, ended a two-fight losing streak, but the victory did not come without moments of trepidation. In the second and fifth rounds, Dern had Yan in deep trouble on the canvas, transitioning from one submission threat to...

LONDON -- The New Orleans Saints downgraded quarterback Jameis Winston from doubtful to out on Saturday evening in London. Backup quarterback Andy Dalton will start in his place.Winston has been dealing with a back injury since Week 1 and has also had foot and ankle issues. Saints coach Dennis Allen said the accumulation of injuries has built up over the past few weeks.The Saints rested Winston during Wednesday's practice and said they intended to have him practice on Thursday, but he sat out the entire week instead.Allen said the switch to Dalton is purely because of Winston's medical issues and is not related to performance, despite the offensive struggles this season.The Saints will also be without wide receiver Michael Thomas, who injured his foot during last Sunday's game against the Panthers. He did not practice all week. Wide receiver Jarvis Landry and running back Alvin Kamara are questionable to play.The Saints will...

Ohtani's deal is fully guaranteed with no other provisions.Ohtani, who is making $5.5 million this year, will be a free agent after the 2023 season.The Saturday announcement comes amid a 15-game hitting streak and a near no-hit performance Thursday by Ohtani, the reigning American League MVP who regularly accomplishes feats that haven't occurred in the major leagues since Babe Ruth's heyday.

Los Angeles Rams CB Jalen Ramsey's rant: Worry about player safety, not my socks

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- While answering a question about Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa's injury situation and player safety, Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey took the conversation in another direction Saturday."Player safety should be one of the most important things to talk about," Ramsey said. "It should probably be talked about more. And then s--- like getting fined for socks ... or s--- like getting fined for tights or B.S. or anything like that. ... That needs to not be talked about as much."Ramsey, who said he has been fined every week this season for a uniform violation, said the league should be less concerned about the color of his socks and instead focus on talking more about player safety."That's the stuff that they need to put an emphasis [on]," Ramsey said. "Not freaking, 'Oh his socks are too high' or, 'His socks are too low' or something like that. That's so lame. I'm so beyond that."Ramsey said he gets...

The Dolphins initially listed him as questionable to return with a head injury but later stated that a back injury Tagovailoa suffered earlier in the game caused him to stumble.The NFLPA exercised its right to initiate a review of the league's concussion protocol...

Instead, he won't make the trip to Atlanta."That's just my competitive spirit and my nature," he said. "Physically, we have to assess that, going up to the game. ... That's a decision we'll make a little closer to game time."Garrett crashed his 2021 Porsche near Wadsworth, Ohio, striking a ditch after leaving the road, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

NEW YORK -- Zack Britton might have played his last game in pinstripes Friday night, as the New York Yankees returned the veteran left-handed reliever to the injured list after he struggled in his attempt to come back early from Tommy John surgery.After being removed from New York's 2-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles the night before because of left arm fatigue, manager Aaron Boone announced Saturday morning that Britton would go back on the injured list, in effect ending his 2022 season just over a week after he was activated off the IL."He's doing pretty well, actually. Basically, it's just something that we are kind of running out of time here," Boone explained. "And having a little bit of fatigue last night, it's one of those things that you don't want to power through that and reach for more and then do some damage. He's in a good spot heading into the offseason, so just continuing with that."Britton, who has 154 career saves in 11 major...

New Orleans Pelicans forward Larry Nance Jr. has agreed to a two-year, $21.6 million contract extension, his agent, Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports, told ESPN on Saturday.The extension, tying Nance to the franchise through the 2024-2025 season, allows him to join the Pelicans' key players -- including Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram and CJ McCollum -- on long-term deals.Nance was entering the final year of a four-year, $48 million contract.The 29-year-old Nance arrived to the Pelicans in a February trade with the Portland Trail Blazers as part of a package with McCollum, and he didn't make his debut until March 24 because of a right knee injury.

Ohio State Buckeyes without star wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba against Rutgers Scarlet Knights

No. 3 Ohio State will be without star wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba against Rutgers on Saturday.Smith-Njigba will miss his third game this season while dealing with a lingering hamstring issue. The Buckeyes' staff has been treating the injury with an abundance of caution to make sure he is healthy for the finishing stretch of the schedule.There is no set timetable on Smith-Njigba's return. He will be evaluated going into next week's game at Michigan State. The Buckeyes (4-0) have a bye after the game with the Spartans, and there is optimism that Smith-Njigba's hamstring should be completely healed by the time Ohio State faces Iowa on Oct. 22 and travels to Penn State on Oct. 29.Rutgers, meanwhile, is facing an uncertain quarterback situation for Saturday's game.

Texas QB Quinn Ewers out vs. West Virginia, focuses on return vs. rival Oklahoma, sources say

Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers continues to ramp up his recovery from a shoulder injury with the notion of returning for next week's game against rival Oklahoma, sources told ESPN.Ewers has dressed for the Longhorns' past two games but is not expected to play against West Virginia on Saturday, sources said, as the quarterback continues to follow the original four-to-six-week timeline that emerged after he was injured in the first quarter against Alabama on Sept. 10. Ewers has been limited in practice this week, sources said.A return against the Sooners would mark four weeks after Ewers was injured, with sources indicating that is the earliest he would be expected to be available to play.Ewers has been consistently rehabbing the SC sprain -- a significant injury where the sternum meets the clavicle -- in his nonthrowing shoulder. The injury initially restricted Ewers' ability to breathe and swallow, but his work in rehab has him projected to...

Lewis Hamilton avoids punishment for wearing nose stud, Mercedes receives fine

SINGAPORE -- No further action has been taken against Lewis Hamilton for wearing a nose stud during qualifying day for the Singapore Grand Prix, although his Mercedes team has been fined €25,000 for submitting a scrutineering form that declared Hamilton was not wearing jewellery.Hamilton explained after qualifying that he was wearing his nose stud because removing it at previous rounds had led to an infection and he had been told by doctors to keep it in place to avoid the infection coming back.The stewards at the Singapore Grand Prix accepted Hamilton's explanation, but still fined Mercedes for signing off a form that "declared that the driver complied with the requirement not to wear jewellery in the form of body piercing". However, the stewards noted Mercedes was unaware Hamilton was wearing the nose stud as he had been removing it at previous rounds.At the start of the season, the FIA clarified a long-standing rule in F1's regulations that states drivers must remove...

New-look Team USA wins fourth straight gold at FIBA Women's Basketball World Cup

SYDNEY -- A fair amount of uncertainty surrounded USA Basketball as they entered a new chapter of the post-Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi era.But in front of a crowd of 15,895 fans at the Sydney SuperDome -- most of whom were enthusiastically supporting Team China -- the new-look Team USA successfully reinforced the legacy that was built by those who came before them by winning a fourth consecutive World Cup gold and 11th overall behind a 83-61 victory over China in the final.Just five players from the team that won a seventh-consecutive Olympic gold in Tokyo suited up in Sydney for the red, white and blue. No Bird, Taurasi, Sylvia Fowles, Tina Charles or Brittney Griner. After the squad had been defined for years by its experience and elder-statesmanship, and tended to mostly feature players from a handful of elite schools, the team that took the floor instead featured just one 30-year-old, representatives from 10 collegiate programs and six newcomers...

Sources: Investigation found Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka used crude language in dialogue with female subordinate prior to start of improper relationship

The independent law firm probe into Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka found that he used crude language in his dialogue with a female subordinate prior to the start of an improper workplace relationship with the woman, an element that significantly factored into the severity of his one-year suspension, sources told ESPN.Those investigative findings -- which described verbiage on Udoka's part that was deemed especially concerning coming from a workplace superior -- contribute to what is likely a difficult pathway back to his reinstatement as Celtics coach in 2023, sources told ESPN.The power dynamic associated with a superior's improper relationship with a staff member was the primary finding and policy violation cited in the law firm's report, which was commissioned by the Celtics and completed early last week, sources said.At a news conference last week, Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck said the suspension -- which extends through June 30, 2023 -- was a product of...

The Errol Spence Jr.-Terence Crawford undisputed welterweight championship fight is in jeopardy because of a lingering dispute regarding the contract, sources told ESPN.If the pay-per-view fight set for Las Vegas is finalized, it won't take place on the targeted date of Nov. 19 but rather in December or even January, sources said.Spence and Crawford had agreed to terms, with Crawford set to earn the short end of the financial split, ESPN reported earlier this month.
