Urena (4-12) was suspended for six games by Major League Baseball after hitting Atlanta rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. on Wednesday...
Miami Dolphins: Is Adam Gase worried about Raekwon McMillan, Cordrea Tankersley or Mike Gesicki?

Miami Dolphins: Is Adam Gase worried about Raekwon McMillan, Cordrea Tankersley or Mike Gesicki?

Adam Gase isn’t worried. He knows that gradual improvements are far more important than results in the NFL preseason. But he also has eyes. And so when a player doesn’t seem to be up to par, it causes questions. But Gase thinks there is time. He’s not panicked. He’s not panicking about rookie Mike Gesicki (no preseason catches) or second-year linebacker Raekwon McMillan (returning...

Miami Dolphins’ Tony Lippett: ‘I feel close to myself’

Tony Lippett was held out of the last Miami Dolphins preseason game by Adam Gase as a precaution. But Lippett is ready to return at full speed this week. “I’m excited to get back out there and have fun with the guys,” Lippett said Sunday.

Gators’ Scarlett plans to leave off-field troubles behind

Jordan Scarlett stood in the corner of an interview room in the southwest corner of The Swamp, a stadium he missed and that missed him. He wore his University of Florida-issued blue Jumpman golf shirt and, while the cameras and tape recorders pointed at him, it felt like the bulging muscles in his shoulders were pointing back. Really, it was impossible not to stare a little bit. Is he wearing a neck...

Wellington game shooting: Too close for one family in more than one way

Wellington game shooting: Too close for one family in more than one way

It all started with a cryptic text from their daughter. “I’m safe,” Hope Lerman had written to her parents, defense attorney Gregg Lerman and his wife, Debra. “I’m with Coach Pagley.” It was Friday night, and the Lermans had expected their daughter home late from one of the most highly anticipated football games of Dwyer High School’s football season...
Miami Dolphins trot out no-huddle uptempo offense (no, really)

Miami Dolphins trot out no-huddle uptempo offense (no, really)

Adam Gase wants to go even faster. But in general he was happy with the way the Dolphins looked when opening Friday’s game at Carolina in up-tempo, no-huddle. It remains to be seen how fast and how often Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins actually pick up the pace this season. But it seems Tannehill really wants to. And we know Gase wants to. It’s just — this is something Miami&rsquo...
Shooting brings early end to preseason football showdown

Shooting brings early end to preseason football showdown

It was billed as a preseason measuring-stick game between two of the county’s top high school football programs. Dwyer traveled to play Palm Beach Central on Friday night in a Kickoff Classic that featured at least a half-dozen players who will sign letters of intent with Division I programs, with a large crowd in attendance on a sultry mid-August night.

Miami Dolphins LB Raekwon McMillan still shaking some rust

Raekwon McMillan felt he had let go of his first-game jitters. He felt he was able to play more free and with more energy. But it wasn’t perfect for the Dolphins linebacker in Friday night’s loss at Carolina. And it must be remembered, that he is essentially, still, a rookie. “We have several corrections,” McMillan said after the contest. “Definitely some things we can...

Detectives are still piecing together what really happened amid the pandemonium after a shooting at the Palm Beach Central-Dwyer high school football game Friday night.

Miami Dolphins’ Robert Quinn wants to ‘break records’ and ‘do something extreme’

It was five years ago that Robert Quinn had 19 sacks and seven forced fumbles and was first-team All Pro. Quinn’s been trying to rediscover that form since. Quinn posted two sacks for the Miami Dolphins on Friday night at Carolina, and he feels once again he’s on the verge of something special. “I’ve been saying that since it happened the first time,” Quinn said. &ldquo...

5 Instant Takeaways from Miami Dolphins vs. Carolina Panthers

5 Instant Takeaways from Miami Dolphins vs. Carolina Panthers

The Dolphins were seeking an impressive performance from a first-team offense scheduled to play most or all of the first half at Carolina on Friday night. It was a mixed bag, but all in all, not a disaster. Miami Dolphins defense coordinator Matt Burke wanted his first-team to rebound from a poor showing in the preseason opener. Again, a mixed bag. There was an interception by Xavien Howard, but a...

College football can learn from Jordan McNair. Will it?

Today, every college football program in the country should be having a discussion that starts with these two words: Jordan McNair. Jordan should be getting ready for the upcoming season with his University of Maryland teammates. He should be getting ready for his second year of college classes. He should be hanging out with friends, eating pizza, playing video games and doing the things typical 19-year-olds...

Kevin Ollie’s desire to surround himself with familiar faces prompted lots of questions from NCAA investigators

Kevin Ollie liked to have familiar faces around. He played for UConn from 1991-95, and was an assistant coach from 2010-12, but he had grown up in Los Angeles and had a 13-year career in the NBA, playing for 12 different teams, making a lot of contacts outside the “UConn family” as well as inside it.

Florida coach Dan Mullen appears closer to knowing who his starting quarterback is going to be in the aftermath of the Gators’ first preseason scrimmage Monday night in The Swamp.

When two former UCLA basketball players committed suicide, they left behind more questions

Billy Knight seemed quieter than usual the last time he spoke with his younger brother Eric. They discussed the NBA’s summer league and players they thought might emerge as budding stars. It was an attempt to lighten the mood and steer clear of the grim reality facing Billy, a former UCLA basketball player accused of repeatedly molesting a minor. Billy proclaimed his innocence during the early...

A consequence of Ukraine’s war: Less hunting, more wolf attacks

Aleksandr Podlesnyi saw the lunge before he recognized the shape as a wolf. His first thought was, Where did you come from? As the wolf clamped onto his left arm, his second thought was, I will kill him or he will kill me. Podlesnyi, 41, had emerged from his outhouse early on Dec. 9, intending to feed his chickens and ducks. Instead, he found himself becoming an extreme example of the unintended consequences...

Inside Michael Dickson's improbable journey from Sydney to Seahawks

Inside Michael Dickson's improbable journey from Sydney to Seahawks

He came to Maryland to change its football culture. Now Rick Court is the first out the door.

Maryland football Coach DJ Durkin considered Rick Court to be his most important lieutenant in College Park, often trumpeting Court as his first hire when he came to the school in December 2015. Durkin was on the tarmac, a head coach for the first time and about to catch a flight, when he made that call to ask Court if he would not only be his strength and conditioning coach but his right-hand man...

Michael Brockers quietly counsels younger defensive linemen, and then lines...

Retired NFL players struggling with debilitating injuries years after they leave the field have a not-so-facetious way of describing the league’s approach to doling out their health benefits: “Delay, deny and hope you die.” Enter Paul Scott. For 13 years, he worked for the NFL benefit plan as the point person, telling players what paperwork they needed to apply for disability benefits...
