Cundiff Signs with Jets

Sports

July 24th, 2013 by Jim Field

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with veteran kicker Billy Cundiff. He will compete with Nick Folk for the job in training camp. Cundiff was last with the San Francisco 49ers, who signed him during the playoffs last January to compete with a struggling David Akers but didn’t play.

A Pro Bowl pick in 2010, Cundiff is now with his 12th organization since being signed as an undrafted free agent by Dallas in 2002 out of Drake University in Des Moines.  Cundiff is a former Harlan prep.

Miller pitches Cardinals past Phillies

Sports

July 24th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Shelby Miller threw six shutout innings and Allen Craig drove in a pair of runs to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night. Miller broke out of a three-start slump with one of his finest efforts of the season. He had given up 10 earned runs in 12 2-3 innings over his previous three starts. He was working on 12 days rest and gave up three hits while striking out six and walking one. He is the third St. Louis starter to reach double-digits in wins joining Adam Wainwright and Lance Lynn.

The Cardinals have won four of five and 10 of 13. Philadelphia lost its third straight game. Edward Mujica picked up his 29th save in 31 opportunities. Randy Choate, Seth Maness and Trevor Rosenthal followed Miller to mound.

Chiefs’ Commings breaks collarbone in practice

Sports

July 24th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City Chiefs safety Sanders Commings fractured his left collarbone in his first practice of training camp when he landed on it while trying to defend a pass. The fifth-round draft pick jumped to defend tight end Tony Moeaki and landed hard on one of the practice fields at Missouri Western State University on Tuesday. Commings immediately walked off the field and was taken for X-rays that revealed the break.

Commings wasn’t wearing shoulder pads because players are barred from wearing them for the first three practices under terms of the most recent collective bargaining agreement. The Chiefs hadn’t yet scheduled surgery Tuesday night, and a team spokesman said it wasn’t known how long Commings will be out. He was expected to provide depth in a secondary that underwent a massive overhaul this past offseason.

Lance Armstrong finds support in Iowa

Sports

July 23rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong says fellow riders have been “supportive” of him this week during an annual bike ride across Iowa. Armstrong is in the Midwest for a weeklong event known as RAGBRAI, which starts at the Missouri River in western Iowa and ends at the Mississippi River. It’s the first public appearance on a bike for the seven-time Tour de France winner since he ended years of denials in January and admitting he doped to win.

Armstrong told the Des Moines Register, which sponsors RAGBRAI, that riding in the event allows him to stay connected with the sport he loves. Armstrong has participated in RAGBRAI five times. He says that while he braced for negative reactions from other riders, he didn’t expect a wave of hostility.

Chiefs’ Smith getting first reps of training camp

Sports

July 23rd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — Alex Smith started taking his first snaps of training camp as the quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs. Smith and the rest of the Chiefs quarterbacks reported to camp Tuesday on the campus of Missouri Western ahead of the veterans, who will report Thursday. The first full-squad practice is Friday.

The Chiefs acquired Smith from the San Francisco 49ers this past offseason, reaching an agreement on a trade of draft picks even before the new league year began. Smith had flourished over the past two years, but was hurt last season and then lost his job to Colin Kaepernick. He watched from the sideline as Kaepernick led the 49ers to the Super Bowl.

Now, he’s the No. 1 quarterback for the Chiefs with nobody looking over his shoulder.

DALLAS (AP) — The Big Ten Conference will have a team in either the Heart of Dallas Bowl or the Armed Forces Bowl each year through the 2019 season.   As part of an extension with the Heart of Dallas Bowl announced Tuesday, the Big Ten will also send teams to the Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth, rotating between the two games over a seven-year period.   This season, the Big Ten will play a team from Conference USA in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. That game is on New Year’s Day at the historic Cotton Bowl stadium.   Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany says the league looks forward to continuing the tradition of playing a bowl game annually in Texas like it has since 1995.   ESPN Regional Television owns and operates both games.
