Douglas finishes last in Olympics competition, Monday


August 7th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

LONDON (AP) — Russian’s Aliya Mustafina won the title on uneven bars, just 18 months after blowing out her knee and putting her chances for London in doubt. All-around gold medalist Gabby Douglas finished last among the eight competitors. She’ll get another shot at adding to her personal medal count in the individual balance beam on Tuesday.

Chiefs working on new-look offense


August 7th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — After finishing next-to-last in scoring last season, the Kansas City Chiefs have several reasons to hope for a big offensive rebound. Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles is back from ACL surgery, as is tight end Tony Moeaki. A new offensive coordinator, Brian Daboll, has installed a new offense, and quarterback Matt Cassel looks to be 100 percent healed from a hand injury that shelved him for the last seven games in 2011. Kansas City also will be counting on a trio of free agent acquisitions: right tackle Eric Winston, running back Peyton Hillis and tight end Kevin Boss. Romeo Crennel, who has replaced Todd Haley as head coach, refuses to put a label on his new system other than calling it “a winning offense.”

Iowa DB Collin Sleeper suspended


August 7th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Reserve defensive back Collin Sleeper of Iowa will serve what coach Kirk Ferentz termed a multigame suspension because of past rules violations. Ferentz announced the suspension Monday at the Hawkeyes’ media day. He did not specify the length of the suspension other than to say it would last at least two games. Ferentz also did not say what rules Sleeper had violated. Sleeper, a senior from Solon, is listed as a backup at strong safety on the team’s depth chart. He played in 11 games last year and made 14 tackles.

Cubs place Garza on DL


August 7th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Chicago Cubs right-hander Matt Garza has been placed on the 15-day disabled list and will be shut down “indefinitely,” general manager Jed Hoyer said Monday. Garza hasn’t pitched since he felt stiffness in his right elbow in a July 21 start at St. Louis. An MRI of his elbow showed some irritation at the tip of a bone in what is being characterized a “stress reaction.” Hoyer said Garza won’t throw for at least two weeks, but he didn’t rule out the possibility of his return this season. Garza was 5-7 with a 3.91 ERA in 18 starts. Raley was 4-8 with a 3.62 ERA in 14 starts with Triple-A Iowa. The Cubs are expected to recall left-hander Brooks Raley to make his major league debut Tuesday in San Diego.

Running back still not cleared for practice


August 7th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin running back Montee Ball hasn’t been cleared to practice as he recovers from a concussion sustained when he was roughed up by five men in an early morning incident near campus last week. Badgers coach Bret Bielema says the team will work Ball back into practice slowly, and hopes he will be ready for the Sept. 1 season opener against Northern Iowa.

Brad Rogers looking at new role for Iowa


August 6th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Brad Rogers is trying to become the answer to one of the biggest questions hanging over the Iowa football team. Attrition caused by transfers and dismissals has stripped the Hawkeyes of any veteran talent at running back. That puts Rogers, the starting fullback last season, in the mix as the primary ball carrier, along with Damon Bullock and incoming freshmen Greg Garmon and Barkley Hill. Coach Kirk Ferentz says that because of what’s happened at the position the last couple of years, anyone who can run the ball is getting a look in preseason practice. But none of the candidates has much experience in that role. Rogers, a junior, has carried the ball only 14 times for 83 yards in his career. Bullock, a sophomore, had just 10 carries for 20 yards last fall.
