Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops Billy Donovan did back down his stance on Grayson Allen and his past in college a bit, but said if the roles were reversed and Caruso took out Giannis or Middleton, would the Bucks be so easy to say it wasn’t malicious like they have been the last 24 hours. – 4:50 PM

Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill was angry at a Bengals assistant coach after Thursday night’s game. Hill said a coach whose name he doesn’t know said something objectionable, and that Hill plans to find the man and address it with him. “Whichever coach that is, I’m gonna come find you bro,” Hill said, via Marcel [more]
Josh Tupou waited five years and 44 career games before recording his first sack, but it proved bittersweet for the Bengals defensive tackle. The hit caused Tua Tagovailoa‘s head to bounce off the turf, leaving the Dolphins quarterback with a brain injury that sent him to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center for observation.

Tua Tagovailoa’s injury in the second quarter of the Miami Dolphins’ game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday was scary because all potential head or neck injuries are, but also because of how the quarterback’s body responded.
Rory McIlroy threw his head back and laughed towards the heavens after holing a 50-footer for par. Mirth, mittens and a measure of masochism were the only way to cope on a day when the atrocious conditions saw 34 pros in the 168-man field fail to break 80 in the second round of the Dunhill Links Championship.
The quarterback for the Miami Dolphins was taken to the hospital after a play Thursday night, suffering from a concussion. CBS2's Nick Caloway has more on why some people say he shouldn't have been on the field at all. We want to warn you, the images might be disturbing for some.
