He started out with an urgent snap count like the offense was getting ready to snap the ball, but that was a just a "dummy count". "And just the way he handles things, the way he calls plays in the huddle, the way he can just spit out the verbiage and his athleticism, the way he can move and scramble and make some plays with his legs much like RGIII can do, it just felt so comfortable putting him in this spot".
Open champion Dustin Johnson and Chris Kirk - who only completed nine holes - are two strokes off the lead in equal third. Johnson didn't even know he set the course record until Tony Pancake, the golf director at Crooked Stick, congratulated him on the way to the clubhouse.
The right-handed pitcher had felt a "pinch" in his surgically-repaired elbow. While they'd ideally want Strasburg back for the playoffs, they now hold an 8.5 game lead in the National League East. A 2nd TJ surgery was the early speculation by almost everyone who had seen or heard about the injury, his reaction, and the early comments. Strasburg signed a seven year extension with the Nationals earlier this season, but with Strasburg's injury history that deal could be problematic for the ...

After almost a gap of four months, Liverpool return to their fabled fortress at Anfield to play their first competitive home game of the season as they welcome Claudio Ranieri's Leicester City.

The players think the same as me - we would prefer to play the Champions League. "Even when you are 32, 33 or 36 you can always improve".

Djokovic, the No. 1 seed and defending champion, dipped in form in the third set, and had a trainer massage his left shoulder and, later, his right shoulder.
