New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees addresses the media after a Week 2 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. This game is streaming live on the Yahoo Sports mobile app, or on NFL Network
Formula One legend Michael Schumacher is thought to be in a vegetative state with little chance of ever fully recovering, according to leading neurosurgeon Erich Riederer. The seven-time F1 World Champion had been on holiday in the French Alps in 2013 when he was in a devastating skiing accident that left him with severe brain injuries. Almost seven years later, he has not been seen in public since the accident with few details released about his current state.
Monday night's first-ever NFL game in Las Vegas included the kind of gamble that never should be made in the vicinity of a football field. An ESPN camera cart inched too close to the action, and a pair of Raiders collided with it. Safety Johnathan Abram seemed to be knocked out after colliding with the base of the device.
Tiger Woods had a few of his buddies – Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, and Justin Rose – over to the new course he designed in Missouri for a special exhibition on Tuesday. While all 18 holes of the course looked pretty incredible, the special 19th hole (which has been dubbed a “bonus” hole) stole the show at the end of the round. The four golfers competed at Payne's Valley Golf Course (Named in honor of Ozarks native Payne Stewart) at Big Cedar Lodge in Ridgedale.
Through two games in the 2020 NFL season, Saints quarterback Drew Brees looks a lot like a guy who's just about done playing quarterback at a plus level. In Monday night's 34-24 loss to the Raiders, Brees completed 26 of 38 passes for 312 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Pretty good stats on their face, especially since Brees was working without receiver Michael Thomas, who's out with an ankle injury.
Peyton Manning takes veiled cheap shot at Patriots during MNF broadcast originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston It's been four and a half years since Peyton Manning hung up the spikes and retired from the NFL, but he can still sling it. But instead of heaving deep balls to sprinting wide receivers, the former Colts and Broncos quarterback was busy hurling zingers during his appearance during ESPN's Megacast of the Raiders-Saints game on Monday Night Football -- and he saved his harshest burn for his old nemesis, the New England Patriots.
Arians gets blunt about Gronk's role in Bucs offense originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston Tom Brady targeted Rob Gronkowski about seven times per game over the tight end's nine seasons with the New England Patriots. Through two games in Tampa Bay, however, the Brady-Gronkowski connection has been non-existent. So, why has Gronkowski caught just two passes on four targets so far this season?
Tomase: Workman trade already a knockout for Bloom, Sox originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston Let's call this one right now: Chaim Bloom fleeced the Phillies. Normally, evaluating a trade deadline deal of veterans for prospects takes a couple of years, but the anguished cries of Phillies fans every time Brandon Workman takes the mound should be more than enough to declare a winner. On Tuesday, the juxtaposition was striking.
As noted last week, the point of this column is to provide some ideas for trades to make, both through my recommendations and a look at the trade market for that player based on actual trades from Yahoo leagues. A recommendation to trade away or trade for is not a guarantee that the player will bust or breakout moving forward. Now that we've covered that, let's take a look at three running backs — one to trade for, trade away, and hold — following the injury rapture, aka Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season.
A rookie currently leads the LPGA in driving distance with a 287.462 average. Unlike Bryson DeChambeau, Bianca Pagdanganan didn't seek out extra yardage. Pagdanganan – who for the record isn't really a fan of protein shakes – consistently carried the ball 275 yards in college, but really doesn't keep track of how far she's hitting it now.
The Seattle Seahawks kept Bruce Irvin's promise. The Seahawks allowed two rushing touchdowns to quarterback Cam Newton on Sunday night in their instant classic matchup with the New England Patriots. After Newton's second score, in which the QB waltzed into the end zone on a designed run to the left, a mic'd up Irvin fired some trash talk at Newton that turned out to be very accurate.
Jimmy Kimmel Live! returned from hiatus on Monday, and the first guest on the revamped set was NBA legend Charles Barkley. Barkley is a commentator on Inside the NBA, so he has been forced to quarantine in the Orlando-based bubble with the cast since the return of the NBA in late July. “It sucks, Jimmy,” Barkley told the host.
Novak Djokovic and Simona Halep were this year's Italian Open winners. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, total payouts were down 33.5% compared to the 2019 prize pool. Though the gender pay gap was smaller than in years past, the $12 difference between Djokovic's and Halep's final checks drew criticism from tennis fans.
Subscribe to the Yahoo Fantasy Football Forecast Everyone... and I mean everyone... is heading to the waiver wire after yet another injury-riddled weekend in the NFL.
Through two weeks of the NFL and fantasy football season, your top-scoring wide receiver is none other than Calvin Ridley, the supposed WR2 in Atlanta, with 55.8 half-PPR points — 16.1 more points than second-place receiver, Davante Adams. Week 3 Fantasy Rankings: QBs | RBs | WRs | TEs | FLEX | DST | Kickers] Not bad for a guy selected, on average, in the fifth round of August fantasy drafts. Can he keep it going in Week 3?
Dwight Howard is thriving in his role as enforcer and Nikola Jokic antagonist for the Lakers in the Western Conference Finals — and he's talking a lot on the court to let everyone know it. Based on NBA.com matchup stats, Jokic is 3-of-7 shooting while guarded by Howard, with another 10 points at the free-throw line, which means he's doing better than JaVale McGee or Anthony Davis (and he's keeping Davis out of foul trouble). Dwight Howard has been a spark of energy for the Lakers in that role, but he almost got ejected in the first half of Game 3 because of his language, reports Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.
Jimmy Garoppolo missed practiced with a sprained ankle and is unlikely to return this week, setting the stage for backup Nick Mullens to possibly make his first start at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers in nearly 21 months. Garoppolo was one of several 49ers who went down with injuries in last week's 31-13 win over the New York Jets. ''I know our players believe in him and he'll be fine,'' Shanahan said from the team's base for the week at The Greenbrier resort in West Virginia.
Right-hander Mike Clevinger of the playoff-bound San Diego Padres lasted only one inning in his start against the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday. Clevinger's start had been pushed back from Saturday night because of tightness in his right biceps. Manager Jayce Tingler said on Tuesday that the right-hander threw a bullpen session on Monday and seemed good to go for Wednesday afternoon's start.
Unexpected NL East team interested in stealing Realmuto originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia The Phillies' third consecutive late-season collapse isn't doing the team any favors in its quest to keep J.T. Realmuto in Philadelphia. The Phils and Realmuto's camp couldn't reach an agreement on an extension during baseball's extended break this summer, and now Realmuto will hit the open market as a free agent this offseason - and could be poached by a hated division rival.

“Everyone's got all five fingers, so there's no fingers getting jammed out there and no one losing anything," joked offensive coordinator Josh Gattis. Gattis said he has noticed that work carry over into Michigan's practices and workouts, where Milton has exhibited an "increased focus" on footwork and various fundamentals.
