One teammate additionally called Haskins out, according to the source, saying then-third-string quarterback Alex Smith would arrive to the team facility earlier than Haskins and prepare better for games, even though Smith knew he was going to be inactive come game day. Head coach Ron Rivera announced on Wednesday that not only would Haskins move to the bench, but he was demoted to third-string. Third-year pro Kyle Allen will be the starter, with Smith serving as the primary backup.
Since last week, the NFL and NFLPA have had representatives in Nashville, investigating why the Tennessee Titans have by far the most positive COVID tests of any NFL team. The organization has had 22 positive tests among players and staff, and given the team's inability to fall within the league-mandated two straight days with no positive tests without more positive tests coming up, the Titans' Sunday game against the Bills is now in serious jeopardy. As are any more games the Titans are capable of playing this season.
After missing back-to-back practices to open up the week, there are some concerns that starting defensive tackle Maliek Collins will miss the team's Week 5 contest against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Raiders are awfully thin at defensive tackle and with the new precautions about bringing in players for workouts, the team may have to rely on other players on their current roster to fill that spot. One potential candidate is defensive end Clelin Ferrell, who has seen time inside over the past two seasons.
Things tend to fall apart when teams lose. The Houston Texans are no different, according to a report. Star defensive lineman J.J. Watt had enough of Bill O'Brien and his coaching style the week of the Steelers game and went off on the coach, per John Granato of ESPN Houston radio.
Rondo helped the Boston Celtics win their 17th NBA championship. He's on the brink of being part of title No. for the Lakers as well, something that could come as early as Friday night when they take on the Miami Heat in Game 5 of these NBA Finals.
Only when the ball is at its high point and her racquet is in motion does she then swivel her head back up. "I've had that my whole career. I know it's a little bit different.
Khalil Mack delivered two shots for the price of one in the third quarter of the Chicago Bears' game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Soldier Field. First, the All-World LB took down Tom Brady for a sack after cleanly beating TB rookie — and first-round pick — Tristan Wirfs. Then, Mack made sure the rookie understood who he was messing with, going classic WWE hip-toss on the 320-pounder from Iowa.
Nothing about a John Daly hole-in-one is going to be boring, from the attire down to the colorful language used to describe it. From that standpoint, his most recent ace – caught on camera during a recent charity pro-am – doesn't disappoint in the least. Daly holed out Sunday on the par-3 11th hole at the Bone Frog Open, a charity pro-am at Federal Golf Club in Glen Allen, Virginia, benefitting the families of fallen Navy SEALS.
Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, with 36 Grand Slam titles between them, are both just two wins away from creating more tennis history at Roland Garros but standing in the way in Friday's semi-finals are Stefanos Tsitsipas and Diego Schwartzman. Tsitsipas is the first Greek player to reach the last four in Paris while the diminutive Argentine has put sport in perspective this week with his moving story of how his great-grandfather survived the Holocaust. Novak Djokovic (SRB x1) v Stefanos Tsitsipas (GRE x5) Head-to-head: Djokovic leads 3-2 -- Djokovic is chasing a second Roland Garros title and 18th Grand Slam to become the first man in half a century to win all four majors twice.
Justin Turner and the Los Angeles Dodgers have completed the first step of what they hope is a long stay in the Lone Star State. Turner put the Dodgers ahead with a record-breaking hit in a big inning fueled by a nice stop-gone-bad by Fernando Tatis Jr., and they closed out a three-game NL Division Series sweep of the San Diego Padres with an 12-3 win Thursday night. ''Records are cool, championships are better,'' said Turner, who was part of the 2017 and 2018 National League championship teams that fell short in the World Series.
Whatever happens the rest of these Finals, it's easy to look at the Miami Heat and think, “this team will be back.” Plus, they have Erik Spoelstra and that Heat culture to keep everything running. Boston is young and improving, Milwaukee still has Giannis Antetokounmpo and the best defense in the land, and next season Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving will start playing games in Brooklyn.
On a cold afternoon last December, a furious Brandon McManus ripped his helmet off and flung it to the ground after Vic Fangio summoned him back to the sideline just as he was about to attempt a record 65-yard field goal. When he came back from halftime, McManus lined up at the exact spot and sent the practice kick sailing through the uprights in the north end zone, a not-so-subtle dig at Fangio for denying him a chance to best Matt Prater's record 64-yarder, which came on the same field six years earlier. ''Does a Hail Mary change the way a quarterback throws the ball?'' retorted McManus after his 53-yarder as time expired gave Denver a 23-20 win over the Chargers that day.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians will always hit on 16 against a dealer's 10 in blackjack. He might hit on 17 and 18, too. The NFL is shifting its attitude on going for it on fourth down.
Sue Bird is the greatest point guard in the history of the WNBA. The 39-year-old superstar won her fourth WNBA championship with the Seattle Storm Tuesday night, averaging 7.7 points and 11 assists per game in her team's three-game sweep of the Las Vegas Aces. Bird's girlfriend, US Women's National Team superstar Megan Rapinoe, was in the WNBA's bubble to celebrate the impressive feat.
With that, here are five sleepers to start and five starters to sit in fantasy football Week 5: Sleepers to start QB Justin Herbert at Saints Also someone who was available on the wavier wire this week, the rookie has been pretty impressive since being inserted into the lineup. He's averaging 310 yards per game and is up against the Saints this week, who've allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing QBs this season. RB Brian Hill vs. Panthers After a solid Week 3, Brian Hill had a dud for the Panthers while Todd Gurley ran wild.
DeChambeau told reporters in Las Vegas that he's taking the next month off to speed train and dial in a 48-inch driver that he's hoping to put in play at Augusta National. A 48-inch driver is the maximum length allowed under the Rules of Golf; DeChambeau currently uses a 45 1/2-inch shaft. Though he cautioned that he's still tinkering with shafts and clubheads for the 48-inch model, DeChambeau said that the club should have similar launch and spin characteristics.
Few thought Sofia Kenin could reach the French Open final when, three weeks ago, she lost 6-0, 6-0 in her lone clay-court tune-up match. Few thought Iga Swiatek could reach the French Open final as recently as last week. Ranked 54th, the 19-year-old from Poland was promising, but had yet to reach a Grand Slam quarterfinal.
Bryson DeChambeau put on another power display Thursday and it worked just as well as when he won the U.S. Open. In his first start since winning at Winged Foot last month, DeChambeau had two-putt birdies on all three of the par 5s and two of the par 4s on his way to a 9-under 62 and a one-shot lead in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. It matched his career low, and that was all that disappointed him at the TPC Summerlin.

Mychal Thompson was drafted first overall in 1978, but his basketball career took off nearly a decade later, when the San Antonio Spurs traded him to the Los Angeles Lakers. Thompson has worked as a broadcaster for the Lakers since 2003, and is one of only a handful of people watching these Finals who played for Miami Heat president Pat Riley. On Wednesday, GQ called Thompson to talk about how good LeBron's Lakers are compared to those original Showtime squads, why Riley's practices still haunt him, how his son Klay is feeling, and more.
