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.

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.
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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are getting most of the bets and money for their matchup against the Chicago Bears. Thursday afternoon it moved back the other way a bit, to Chicago +3.5. Tom Brady and the Buccaneers are coming off a nice comeback win over the Los Angeles Chargers, while Nick Foles and the Chicago Bears offense looked bad last week against the Indianapolis Colts.
The 2020 NHL Entry Draft is behind us and in some ways Day 2 was more interesting than the first round Tuesday night. When going over the winners and losers of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, I'm going to be factoring in Tuesday and Wednesday's trades and signings as well as the players taken. The Coyotes decision to get Taylor Hall was questionable back in December when they pulled the trigger given that he was on the final year of his contract.
Bowyer will move from the seat of the No. car at Stewart-Haas Racing to the broadcast booth at Fox Sports. I want to thank every owner who has paid a bill on my behalf, every crew member who has turned a bolt on my cars and every media member who has covered my racing career,” Bowyer said.
