FOOTBALL

Cardinals hire Roger Kingdom, re-sign NT Ta’amu

TEMPE (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals hired two-time Olympic gold medalist Roger Kingdom as assistant strength and conditioning coach on Thursday.

The team also re-signed nose tackle Alameda Ta’amu.

Kingdom won the 110-meter hurdles at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics and defended the title four years later in Barcelona. He has spent the last 10 years as director of the track and field and cross country programs at California University of Pennsylvania.

Ta’amu appeared in 14 games, three as a starter, for the Cardinals last season after the team claimed him off waivers from the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Broncos release CB Bailey in salary-cap move

DENVER (AP) — Champ Bailey spent a decade with the Denver Broncos, making eight Pro Bowls and picking off 34 passes even with quarterbacks only reluctantly glancing his way.

This number was hard to overlook: $10 million.

In a salary-cap move Thursday, the Broncos released Bailey, the team’s defensive leader who’s been a fan favorite since he was acquired in a trade with Washington in 2004.

Broncos boss John Elway called the decision to release Bailey a “difficult” one given all that the perennial Pro Bowl cornerback has brought to the team over his 10 seasons in the Mile High City.

But age and injuries had begun to catch up with one of the best shutdown cornerbacks to play the game. Bailey, a 12-time Pro Bowler overall, is scheduled to make around $10 million next season.

The 2013 season was difficult for the 35-year-old Bailey as he missed 11 games because of a nagging left foot sprain originally sustained in the preseason on Aug. 17 in Seattle. Only later did Bailey reveal he sustained a Lisfranc injury, which usually involves a separation of ligaments and joints in the foot and requires an arduous rehab.

He returned late in the season to help the Broncos advance to the Super Bowl, but he wasn’t back to his old form.

In his prime, Bailey wasn’t always very busy because opponents simply picked on his counterpart. And yet he still has 52 career interceptions.

Colts sign free-agent LB D’Qwell Jackson

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Colts needed a linebacker. D’Qwell Jackson just wanted to play for a winner.

On Thursday, everybody got their wish. Jackson, who spent his entire career with Cleveland until being released last week, signed a four-year, $22 million contract to play with Indianapolis.

Jackson has been productive since Cleveland took him in the second round of the 2006 draft. He started 96 games and had 891 career tackles, 111⁄2 sacks, eight interceptions, seven fumble recoveries and one touchdown with the Browns. Last season, at age 30, he led the Browns in tackles (143), posting his sixth 100-tackle season.

Bears confirm Devin Hester won’t return

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Devin Hester is done returning kicks in Chicago.

The Bears confirmed Thursday that they are parting ways with the three-time Pro Bowl pick after eight seasons, confirming what he told the NFL Network the previous day. So instead of a return to Chicago, he’ll hit the market as a free agent.

Hester matched Hall of Famer Deion Sanders’ NFL record with his 19th return touchdown last season, tying his friend and mentor with an 81-yard punt return at Washington in October. It was Hester’s 13th punt return for a TD, extending his own record in that category. He has also returned five kickoffs and a missed field goal for a touchdown.

NCAA panel approves change to targeting penalty

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An NCAA panel approved a change to the targeting foul that would wipe out the 15-yard penalty when video review overturns the ejection of a player. The change goes into effect next season.

The targeting rule was implemented by the NCAA last season. When a player was flagged for targeting an opponent’s head with a hit, he was disqualified from the game and his team was penalized 15 yards. The foul was reviewed by replay officials and the ejection could be overturned — but the 15-yard penalty stood.

This confused players, coaches and fans.

The football rules committee last month passed a proposal to no longer enforce the 15-yard penalty when the ejection is overturned, as long as another foul has not been committed. The playing rules oversight panel approved it Thursday.

GOLF

English takes clubhouse lead in Cadillac Championship

DORAL, Fla. (AP) — Tiger Woods only made it through 10 holes Thursday — this time because of the weather, not his back.

The opening round of the Cadillac Championship was stopped for more than two hours because of menacing thunderstorms.

Woods failed to make a birdie in the 10 holes he played. When the round was suspended by darkness, he hit a wedge some 20 yards short of his target and three-putted from 55 feet on the par-5 10th hole. He was at 2-over par.

Harris English finished with a 3-under 69 for a share of the lead with Jason Dufner, Hunter Mahan, Francesco Molinari and Patrick Reed, who all have to return this morning to complete the first round.

Woods walked off after 13 holes Sunday in the Honda Classic because of lower back pain and spasms.

n RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico (AP) — Brian Stuard birdied seven of his first 12 holes in windy conditions Thursday to take the first-round lead in the Puerto Rico Open. Stuard finished with a 6-under 66.

Jason Gore and Danny Lee each shot 67, and Y.E. Yang was another stroke behind along with Ricky Barnes, William McGirt, Tim Petrovic, Chesson Hadley, Eric Axley and Ben Martin.

BASKETBALL

Duke coach Krzyzewski back at practice after dizzy spell

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Coach Mike Krzyzewski was out of the hospital and at practice with No. 4 Duke after feeling light-headed during a loss at Wake Forest.

Team spokesman Matt Plizga said Krzyzewski led practice on Thursday.

Earlier in the day, the school issued a statement that Krzyzewski was taken to Duke University Hospital in Durham for a precautionary examination after the 82-72 loss in Winston-Salem. He was sent home in the early morning after the school said his condition improved.

The 67-year-old Hall of Fame coach took a knee during a timeout in the second half of Wednesday night’s game. He did not attend the postgame news conference.

WNBA and players union agree to new CBA

NEW YORK (AP) — The WNBA and the players union agreed to a new eight-year collective bargaining agreement Thursday night, pending approval by the league’s Board of Governors.

The biggest change in the deal is an increase by one in maximum roster size to 12. There also is an improved revenue-sharing program for the players and a small increase in the salary cap.

The number of times a player can be “cored” was dropped from five to four, shortening the path to unrestricted free agency for star players.

The new agreement allows both sides to opt out after the sixth season. The two sides had agreed in principle to a deal in the middle of February and spent the last few weeks ironing out all the details. The previous contract expired on Sept.

Sports medicine pioneer Frank Jobe dies at 88

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dr. Frank Jobe, the sports medicine pioneer who was the first to perform an elbow procedure that became known as Tommy John surgery, died Thursday. He was 88.

Jobe died in Santa Monica after being hospitalized recently with an undisclosed illness, according to a spokesman for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Jobe performed groundbreaking elbow surgery in 1974 on John, a Dodgers pitcher who had a ruptured medial collateral ligament in his left elbow. The injury previously had no solution until Jobe removed a tendon from John’s forearm and repaired his elbow. John went on to pitch 14 years after the operation on Sept.

25, 1974, compiling 164 more victories without ever missing a start because of an elbow problem.

The surgery has since become common practice for pitchers and players at every level of baseball. Typically, full rehabilitation takes about a year for pitchers and about six months for position players.

Jobe had served the Dodgers organization for 50 years, most recently as special adviser to the chairman. Since 1974, Jobe had performed hundreds of Tommy John surgeries on pitchers.

BOXING

IBF light middleweight champion Carlos Molina jailed

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A scheduled fight this weekend between IBF light middleweight champion Carlos Molina and challenger Jermall Charlo appeared to be in jeopardy Thursday, with Molina jailed in Las Vegas on a federal immigration hold and an arrest warrant from Wisconsin.

Molina, 30, of Mexico was arrested Tuesday by Las Vegas police on a 2007 felony warrant from Outagamie County, Wisc. accusing him of failing to register as a sex offender, Las Vegas police Officer Laura Meltzer said.

Molina made an appearance Thursday before a Las Vegas justice of the peace and tried to post $10,000 bail, but his release was denied after jailers learned he was also sought by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Meltzer said.

Molina (22-5-2, 6 KOs) is scheduled to defend his title against Charlo (17-0, 13 KOs) on the undercard of a five-fight card Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden arena on the Las Vegas Strip. The headline bout is a super welterweight matchup between Canelo Alvarez and Alfredo Angulo.

NHL modifies Kovalchuk penalty against Devils


NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The NHL reduced its penalty against the New Jersey Devils on Thursday for signing Ilya Kovalchuk in 2010.

The Devils will keep the first-round draft pick they were scheduled to forfeit this year, and the league will reduce the $3 million fine assessed against the team for circumventing the NHL-NHLPA collective bargaining agreement.

The Devils recently applied to the league for reconsideration and relief from a portion of the original penalty, citing primarily changes in circumstances which, in the club’s view, changed the appropriateness of the sanctions.

The NHL did not spell out what changed, but Kovalchuk retired after last season and returned to Russia to play there.

The league said the Devils will be entitled to the 30th selection overall — the last pick in the first round — in the 2014 draft. They will not be permitted to trade or transfer its right to that pick.

SOCCER
