TCU, West Virginia and Iowa St show Big 12’s depth


September 16th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

UNDATED (AP) — TCU, West Virginia and Iowa State weren’t expected to do much in the Big 12 this season. Last weekend’s performances might change that perception. The Horned Frogs, Mountaineers and Cyclones each beat a fellow power conference team on Saturday — and West Virginia and Iowa State did it on the road.

The teams picked 7th, 8th and 9th in the preseason poll respectively had three of the Big 12’s four wins over power five teams, showing that the league might be deeper than originally thought.

Chiefs down 7 starters to injuries, suspensions


September 16th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles has a high ankle sprain and safety Eric Berry also has an ankle sprain, throwing their status into question for Sunday’s game in Miami.

Charles was hurt on his second carry of the Chiefs’ 24-17 loss to Denver over the weekend, and Berry left the game later in the first half. X-rays came back negative but Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Monday that he could not provide a timetable for their return.

The loss of Charles and Berry means the Chiefs (0-2) are down seven starters to injuries and suspensions. Those seven players have combined to start 355 games, play in 492 games and appear in nine Pro Bowls over 43-plus seasons in the NFL.

Iowa St RT Gannon rejoins team


September 15th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State lineman Jacob Gannon has rejoined the Cyclones less than two weeks after quitting the team. Coach Paul Rhoads announced Gannon’s return on Monday. Gannon says in a statement released by the school that he has been diagnosed with anxiety issues and is receiving treatment.

Gannon opened the season as Iowa State’s starting right tackle. But he left the team just days before a loss to Kansas State. Rhoads announced Gannon’s return just hours after he said backup lineman Jacob Dunning would miss the rest of the season with a ruptured patella tendon.

The Cyclones (1-2) next host No. 7 Baylor on Sept. 27.

Iowa State’s Dunning, Harris likely out for year


September 15th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State offensive lineman Jacob Dunning and wide receiver P.J. Harris are likely out for the season. Cyclones coach Paul Rhoads says Dunning ruptured his patella tendon and Harris broke his leg during Saturday’s 20-17 win at Iowa.

Dunning is a backup at left tackle. Harris had nine catches for 55 yards through three games. Dunning and Harris join linebacker Levi Peters, center Ben Loth and standout wide receiver Quenton Bundrage as Cyclones who are expected to miss the rest of 2014.

Iowa State has a bye before hosting No. 7 Baylor on Sept. 27.

Broncos fend off Chiefs 24-17 with goal-line stand


September 15th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

DENVER (AP) — Terrance Knighton batted away Alex Smith’s fourth-and-goal pass to Dwayne Bowe with 15 seconds left, preserving the Denver Broncos’ 24-17 win over the scrappy Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. The Broncos thought they had sealed the win twice earlier on the drive. Aqib Talib’s pick-6 was negated by Quanterus Smith’s hold. Then, Nate Irving’s fumble recovery following DeMarcus Ware’s sack and strip was ruled an incomplete pass after a replay.

The Chiefs converted 11 of 16 third-down opportunities overall. They just couldn’t capitalize in the biggest moments as the Broncos defense mustered two goal-line stands for the second straight week. Peyton Manning was 21 of 26 for 242 yards and three TDs.


DENVER (AP) — Broncos special teams ace David Bruton was among Denver’s inactives against Kansas City. Bruton separated his left shoulder in the opener last week. He returned to practice Thursday but only on a limited basis.

Other inactives for the Broncos were WR Cody Latimer, CB Tony Carter, LB Danny Trevathan, guard Ben Garland and tackle Michael Schofield. The Broncos only had six inactives because they only have 52 players on their roster.

Kansas City’s inactives were QB Aaron Murray, WRs Albert Wilson and De’Anthony Thomas, RB Joe McKnight, OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, CB Jamell Fleming and DE Damion Square. Ryan Harris started at right tackle for Jeff Allen, one of three Chiefs lost for the season in their loss to Tennessee in the opener.

Gonzales, Cardinals top Rockies for 3rd win in row


September 15th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Rookie Marco Gonzales struck out nine, Jhonny Peralta homered and the NL Central-leading St. Louis Cardinals beat the Colorado Rockies 4-1 Sunday for their third straight win. The Cardinals held their 3 1-2-game division lead over Pittsburgh. Colorado lost all six games on its just-completed road trip.

Gonzales, in his fifth major league start, gave up one run on four hits and four walks over 5 2-3 innings. His strikeout total was the most by a Cardinals rookie left-hander since Rick Ankiel fanned 11 in 2000 against Pittsburgh.

Trevor Rosenthal struck out the side in the ninth to pick up his NL-leading 44th save in 49 opportunities. Six St. Louis pitchers combined to fan 16. Peralta hit his team-leading 21st homer, a two-run shot in the third off Jordan Lyles.

Mowing and the Senior Activity Area keeps Atlantic Parks & Rec crews busy

The City of Atlantic’s Parks and Recreation Department Board of Director will meet Monday evening, in the Council’s Chambers at City Hall. During the 5:15-p.m. session, Parks and Rec Director Roger Herring will report on the Summer Rec Program, including slow pitch softball and the status of pool repairs as well as future pool maintenance.

Herring will also talk about progress on the Senior Activity Area at Sunnyside Park. The recent wet weather has slowed progress on some projects in that area. Herring is expected to inform the Board a retaining wall is still being constructed. Once completed, the park’s staff will place topsoil down along with seed, with final grading to finish the project.

The Atlantic Parks and Rec Board will also receive an update on the Boy Scout Cabin and the Eagle Scout fire pit project at Sunnyside, which Herring says is nearly complete. Herring will also provide a wrap on the Disc Golf Tournament, which was held Aug. 30th and 31st, and drew participants from five states. He’s also expected to note that mowing and the Senior Activity Area retaining wall have dominated the park department’s schedule over the past month.

Chiefs’ Charles leaves game with ankle injury


September 14th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

DENVER (AP) – Kansas City Chiefs All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles has left the game with a left ankle injury after being brought down in the first quarter Sunday against the Denver Broncos. His return was questionable. Charles was stopped on a run up the middle by Broncos safety T.J. Ward and then hobbled to the bench. Charles was examined by the Chiefs medical staff as Knile Davis replaced him in the backfield.

Kansas City was trying to get Charles more involved in the offense this week after giving him just seven carries against Tennessee. Charles rushed for 1,287 yards a season ago, which was third-most in the NFL. The Chiefs are already missing Pro Bowl linebacker Derrick Johnson and defensive tackle Mike DeVito as both ruptured their right Achilles tendons last weekend.
