Chiefs’ Reid backs up embattled offensive tackle Fisher


September 14th, 2015 by Chris Parks

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs coach Andy Reid is defending right tackle Eric Fisher, who has been dealing with a high ankle sprain and was unable to play in their season opener at Houston.

Fisher practiced last week but was not on the field with the starters Sunday. Several reports citing unidentified sources said the Chiefs were upset with Fisher for telling them late in the week that he was not ready to deal with J.J. Watt and the rest of the Texans.

Reid denied those reports Monday, saying the former No. 1 overall draft pick never approached any coaches about not wanting to play.


Pitt coach Narduzzi plans to stick with 2 QB system at Iowa


September 14th, 2015 by Chris Parks

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh coach Pat Narduzzi says both Chad Voytik and Nate Peterman will play on Saturday when the Panthers visit Iowa.

Voytik has made 15 straight starts for Pitt (2-0) but spent most of the final three quarters of last week’s 24-7 win over Akron watching while Peterman passed for 148 yards and a score.

Narduzzi says both players will get some time under center no matter who starts against the Hawkeyes (2-0). The first-year coach added he hopes one player separates himself from the other in the coming weeks, but for now, he is comfortable rotating them.

Cardinals beat Reds 9-2 and avoid sweep


September 14th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

CINCINNATI (AP) – Tommy Pham hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the sixth inning, pinch-hitter Matt Adams added a two-run drive in a five-run eighth and the St. Louis Cardinals rallied to beat the Cincinnati Reds 9-2 Sunday and avoid getting swept in the four-game series.

The Cardinals, on their worst stretch this season, had lost eight of 10 going into the series finale, and their division lead over Pittsburgh was down to 2 1/2 games. St. Louis then fell behind 2-0 on Todd Frazier’s second-inning homer and Tucker Barnhart’s fourth-inning sacrifice fly.

Those were the only runs the Reds would score against Michael Wacha (16-5), who allowed three hits and four walks in six innings. Outscored 20-3 in the first three games, the Cardinals tied the score in the fifth against Raisel Iglesias on Kolten Wong’s run-scoring infield single and Matt Carpenter’s RBI single. Sam LeCure (0-1) walked Greg Garcia and Pham homered on a 2-2 pitch for a 4-2 lead, his second home run of the season and first since July 5.

Smith’s 3 touchdown passes lead Chiefs over Texans, 27-20


September 13th, 2015 by Chris Parks

HOUSTON (AP) – Alex Smith threw for 243 yards and three touchdowns in the first half as the Kansas City Chiefs built a big lead and held on for a 27-20 victory over the mistake-prone Houston Texans on Sunday. Travis Kelce caught two touchdown passes in the first quarter, the first one coming after Kansas City intercepted Brian Hoyer on his first throw as a Texan.

The Chiefs were up by 14 in the second quarter when Justin Houston sacked Hoyer, forcing a fumble. Kansas City recovered it and a 7-yard touchdown reception by Jamaal Charles pushed the lead to 27-6.  Hoyer struggled in his debut before Ryan Mallett took over with about six minutes left and led Houston on two scoring drives to cut the lead to a touchdown.

Beathard leads Iowa past Iowa State 31-17


September 12th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) – C.J. Beathard threw three touchdown passes, including the tie-breaker to Riley McCarron with 2:14 left, lifting Iowa to a 31-17 victory over Iowa State on Saturday. Jordan Canzeri’s fumble deep in Iowa State territory had thwarted an earlier drive by the Hawkeyes (2-0). But their defense forced the Cyclones (1-1) to punt, Desmond King returned it to midfield and Beathard took the Hawkeyes to the decisive score, finding the 5-foot-9 McCarron in the back of the end zone from 25 yards out.

King’s interception gave the ball right back to Iowa and Canzeri scored on an 8-yard run to finish it off. The victory followed an emotional week for the Hawkeyes, who are mourning the deaths, four days apart, of former football standout Tyler Sash and former basketball star Roy Marble.
