  • Sam not on Rams' practice squad
    EARTH CITY, Mo. -- The St. Louis Rams announced their 10-man practice squad Monday afternoon and defensive end Michael Sam is not part of it. After releasing Sam on Saturday, Rams coach Jeff Fisher suggested that a lack of bodies at positions with little depth could leave Sam on the outside looking in when the team added its practice squad. "The practice squad is heavily dependent on what you do in other positions," Fisher said. "We've got, for example, it's well noted that [cornerback] Trumaine's [Johnson] going to be down for a few weeks, [offensive lineman] Barrett [Jones] is going to be down for a few weeks. We may have to go heavy in the other positions. "If you're familiar with our roster right now, we've got five linebackers, for example; we need linebackers on the practice squad." That came to fruition Monday when the Rams announced a practice squad that includes two linebackers, two offensive linemen, a quarterback, two...
  • Nishikori's middle-of-the-night magic
    NEW YORK -- If the early bird gets the worm, the patrons who stuck around for the end of the Milos Raonic- Kei Nishikori classic got a head start. In a hard-hitting match at the US Open, Nishikori finally stopped his Canadian opponent in five hair-raising sets. The match ended at 2:26 a.m. ET, tied for the latest end in the history of this tournament. Late-night tennis is a tradition at the Open, even if the majority of the fans bailed before the match ended. But Raonic and Nishikori battled until the bitter end, and now the 10th seed finds himself into his first quarterfinal in New York. It should also be pointed out that Nishikori's coach, Michael Chang, lost the longest-ever US Open match, a 5-hour, 26-minute semifinal brawl with Stefan Edberg in 1992. So what were the latest-ending matches here in New York? 2:26 a.m. ET: Kei Nishikori def. Milos Raonic, 4-6, 7-6 (4), 6-7 (6), 7-5, 6-4, fourth round, 2014 ...
  • Wes Welker's status still in doubt
    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker returned to the practice field Monday as he continues through the NFL's concussion protocol. Welker has not been cleared for contact and is still a question mark for Sunday night's regular-season opener against the Indianapolis Colts. But Monday's appearance on the practice field -- the Broncos practiced in jerseys, shorts and helmets without pads -- was his first since he suffered a concussion Aug. 23. "He's still in the protocol. He's still exercising. Feel good about progress," Broncos coach John Fox said after Monday's practice. "... But obviously, as I said all last week, he's a guy we'll be cautious with, and our main concern is his safety." It marked another stage in Welker's recovery from what was his third concussion since Nov. 17. He had been cleared to travel with the team last week to Texas for the preseason finale against the Dallas Cowboys....
