The SportsXchange

A third juror has been excused in the Roger Clemens perjury trial, according to multiple reports.

U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton told lawyers Tuesday that the juror won't return after the death of her mother last week, leaving one alternate. The excused juror works in law enforcement with the local public transportation authority in Washington, D.C.

Two jurors previously were dismissed for sleeping.

Clemens is accused of lying to Congress in 2008 when he denied using steroids or human growth hormone.
