NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Kansas City center Rodney Hudson and receiver Dexter McCluster left Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints after being injured in the third quarter. After trainers looked at Hudson’s right knee, he was replaced by Ryan Lilja, who moved over from left guard, while Jeff Allen came in to play guard.

McCluster hurt his shoulder, which had been bothering him during the week, leaving his status as questionable coming into the game. His injury occurred when fell after making a short catch, letting the ball go moments before he would have been touched down by cornerback Jabari Greer. Officials initially ruled McCluster down, but the call was changed on replay review to a fumble recovered by New Orleans. Chiefs officials say McCluster’s return is questionable.

Cardinals C Molina out at Cubs with back spasms

Sports

September 23rd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina is out of the starting lineup against the Chicago Cubs because of lower back spasms. Molina tweaked his back when he turned to avoid an inside pitch from Cubs closer Carlos Marmol in the ninth inning of Saturday’s 5-4 win. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Sunday that Molina felt better but was still a bit tight and needed a day off. Right fielder Carlos Beltran isn’t starting because of what Matheny suspects is food poisoning. Beltran hit the game-tying home run in the ninth off of Marmol on Saturday to send the game to extra innings. Matheny says Beltran will likely be available. St. Louis enters play Sunday leading the second wild card by 2½ games over the Milwaukee Brewers.
