Grand Jury to Hear Tony Stewart's Case


BananaStock(CANANDAIGUA, N.Y.) -- NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Tony Stewart will have his sprint car case in New York presented in front of a grand jury, Ontario County District Attorney Michael Tantillo said on Tuesday.

“Upon my review of all of the information contained in the entire investigation, I have made the determination that it would be appropriate to submit the evidence to a grand jury, for their determination as to what action should be taken in this matter,” Tantillo said.

Stewart’s car struck and killed Kevin Ward Jr. during a dirt track race at Canandaigua Motorsports Park on August 9. After Stewart spun him out, Ward climbed out of his car to confront Stewart while the race was still taking place.

“I respect the time and effort spent by both the Ontario County District Attorney and the Sheriff’s Office in investigating this tragic accident,” Stewart said in a statement. “I look forward to this process being completed, and I will continue to provide my full cooperation.”

ESPN: Clippers Sign Australian Guard Joe Ingles


Brian A. Westerholt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- After showing his skills for all to see at the FIBA World Cup, ESPN reports that the Los Angeles Clippers have signed Australian guard Joe Ingles to a one-year deal.

Ingles received plenty of interest around NBA circles, even being heavily pursued by the Philadelphia 76ers as well as the Memphis Grizzlies.

The 26-year-old, who has the ability to play small forward and shooting guard, spent last season at Maccabi Tel Aviv in Israel while playing for new Cleveland Cavaliers head coach David Blatt.

Ingles is known a true shooter with great size as he checks in at 6-foot-8. During the FIBA World Cup, Ingles showed his potential as he went 23-for-33, including 6-for-9 on 3-pointers, in the tournament.

He nearly came to the NBA last season but decided to spend one more season playing international basketball.

Linebacker John Abraham Returns to the Cardinals


David Dermer/Diamond Images/Getty Images(TEMPE, Ariz.) -- Even though he recently contemplated retirement, linebacker John Abraham is rejoining the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday.

Abraham suffered a concussion in the team's season opener against the San Diego Chargers. He was suffering from apparent memory loss, and at age 36, his playing career was in doubt. He was even doubting his desire to play football anymore, but now Abraham is feeling much better and is ready to resume his football career.

"A lot of it was to do with the headaches," Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said. "First real big one he's ever had. There's other things that we're dealing with, and he's fine with those."

"He's ready to play," Arians added.

Abraham is in his 14th NFL sesaon and is the NFL's active leader in sacks at 133.5. He ranks ninth on the all-time sack list as well.

It is currently unknown if Abraham will be activated for Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Phillies' Jonathan Papelbon Suspended 7 Games for Lewd Gesture


Tom Szcaerbowski/Getty Images(SAN DIEGO) -- Philadelphia Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon has been suspended seven games by Major League Baseball for making a "lewd gesture" towards the fans and bumping an umpire.

Papelbon made the gesture towards the Philadelphia fans as he walked off the mound after blowing a save on Sunday against the San Diego Padres and then bumped into umpire Joe West.

While Papelbon admits to bumping West, he says the vulgar motion was not intended towards the Phillies fans. Papelbon grabbed his crotch as he walked off the mound as he was booed by the fans.

"While I completely understand how the fans would perceive my gesture while being booed, it was not my intent whatsoever to insult the fans of Philadelphia," Papelbon said. "If it was perceived in that manner, I sincerely apologize."

West had a different take though. "The whole thing started because the fans booed him and he made an obscene gesture. He had no business doing that," he said. "He's got to be more professional than that. And that's why he was ejected."

Now in his third season with the Phillies, Papelbon actually has a very good season for the last place club. He's 2-3 with a 2.10 ERA with 37 saves.

Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles Has High Ankle Sprain


Garrett W. Ellwood/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles endured a high ankle sprain in the team's loss to the Denver Broncos Sunday, according to Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.

Charles injured the ankle in the first quarter after only two carries.

High ankle sprains quite often can keep a player off the field for multiple weeks, but the Chiefs haven't announced any timetable on Charles' return.

"It doesn't look to be a real severe one, but it does have the components of a high ankle sprain," Reid said. "What does that mean? We'll see what happens."

If Charles is out for any length of time, it would be tough on the Chiefs.

The 27-year-old accounted for 1,980 all-purpose yards and 19 touchdowns last season.

After Charles left the game Sunday, Knile Davis took over in the backfield. The second-year running back carried the call 22 times for 79 yards and two touchdowns.

Chargers RB Mathews Has MCL Sprain


Donald Miralle/Getty Images(SAN DIEGO) -- San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy announced Monday that running back Ryan Mathews has a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee.

“Unfortunately Ryan got hurt there (and) he has an MCL sprain,” McCoy said.  “He’ll be out for a little bit of time.  He’ll be back out there as soon as he can.  It’s unfortunate, but it’s part of the game.  The way he works and the way he’ll rehab, he’ll be back out there as soon as he’s ready.  But it’s all part of the game unfortunately so it will be the next man up, and we’ll keep playing and plugging away.”

According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Kaplan, Mathews is expected to miss four weeks.

Mathews was injured in the fourth quarter of the Chargers' victory over the Seattle Seahawks Sunday. He was trying to recover his own fumble when he suffered the injury and had to be taken off the field in a cart.

With Mathews out, the Chargers (1-1) will use Donald Brown, Danny Woodhead and Branden Oliver at running back.

Mathews rushed for a career-high 1,255 yards while playing in 16 games last season.

Eagles Roar Back, Clip Colts at the Wire


Rich Shultz/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) --  Trailing by seven with five minutes to play, Nick Foles led the Philadelphia Eagles on two scoring drives, the second ending with Cody Parkey hitting a go-ahead field goal with time expiring, as the Eagles clip the Indianapolis Colts, 30-27, Monday night.

The Colts (0-2) never trailed until Parkey hit the game-winning kick. Indianapolis went into halftime up 17-6 after Andrew Luck found tight end Jack Doyle for a two-yard touchdown. The Colts furthered their lead in the second half when Adam Vinatieri's field goal made it 20-6 with 6:43 remaining in the third quarter.

Despite the deficit the Eagles (2-0) never panicked, scoring on two touchdowns in less than two minutes to finish off the third tied 20-20.  The Colts answered back on their first drive of the fourth quarter when Luck threw his third touchdown of the game, a seven-yard pass to Ahmad Bradshaw, to go back up by seven.

The game stayed that way until the the 3:25 mark when Foles found Jeremy Maclin for a six-yard touchdown to tie it up. The Eagles defense made Indianapolis go four and out before Parkey hit the game-winning field goal.

"We felt we had some plays (in the first half), we just couldn't make them," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said. "But we're going to play 60 minutes and we played 60 minutes."

Darren Sproles made seven catches for 152 yards and a touchdown in the win.

Andrew Luck lost two consecutive games for the first time since joining the NFL, despite throwing three touchdowns.
