Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz (11) during the game against the Los Angeles Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. LOS ANGELES - Carson Wentz wasn't finished contributing to the cause of the Philadelphia Eagles after he was knocked out of the huge showdown in crunch time at the Coliseum with a knee injury. When the Eagles filed into the locker room following their resilient 43-35 victory against the Los Angeles Rams, Wentz was there to greet his teammates.
Police on Monday referred former sumo grand champion Harumafuji to prosecutors on suspicion of bodily injury to a junior wrestler, Japanese media reported, the latest development in an incident that has tainted the image of the national sport. Tottori police could not immediately comment on the reports. The former yokozuna, or grand champion, retired and apologized last month for injuring junior wrestler Takanoiwa while drinking at a restaurant-bar with other wrestlers.
- An NFC playoff picture that was starting to look clear a week ago now is in disarray following a wild weekend in which two of the top four seeds lost. Should Wentz's injury be season-ending, the Eagles could no longer be considered the favorite in the NFL.

Carsen Edwards of Purdue gets around DJ McCall of IUPUI on a drive to the basket Sunday, December 10, 2017, at Mackey Arena. WEST LAFAYETTE - In its last tuneup before this week's final exams, Purdue got an unexpected test out of IUPUI. A career night from sophomore guard Carsen Edwards and a highly-efficient final 30 minutes assured there would be no upset. Edwards finished a career-high 27 points and Vincent Edwards collected his fifth double-double of the season with 12 points and 12 rebounds.
CLOSE Pete Dougherty and Aaron Nagler break down the Packers win in overtime against the Cleveland Browns and look forward to the possible return of Aaron Rodgers. A win is a win is a win, and the Packers' only charge Sunday was staying in the hunt. Rodgers will have not played in a game in two months, so you can't be sure he'll be at his sharpest.
The first started with Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett. As the Jaguars were taking a knee, Bennett went low on Jaguars center Brandon Linder. The reckless play incited a scuffle between the two teams, and Bennett somehow wasn't ejected. Sheldon Richardson would be ejected for his role in the scuffle, but Bennett should probably expect discipline from the league office. The loss dropped Seattle to seventh place in the NFC and currently out of a playoff position.
Later, outside the Cowboys locker room, a grinning Jones said, It was nice to see Eli out there again. Much for the storybook comeback that Giants fans, and Manning, might have imagined - and one they desperately needed. Instead, Sunday was another stomach punch - just more evidence of how enduringly disheartening the 2017 season will be for the Giants. The Giants remain a flawed team, and with 19 players on season-ending injured reserve, the inexperience on the roster is manifest.
Vinatieri missed both of his field-goal attempts, including a 33-yarder that fluttered wide right late in the first quarter. Having squandered double-digit leads in the second half four times already this season, the Colts (3-10) found yet another way to lose. This time, they blew two chances to beat Buffalo (7-6) in the final two minutes of regulation.
Donovan Jackson scored 25 points, including a career-high seven 3s, Cameron Lard had 15 points with 11 rebounds and Iowa State held off lowly Alcorn State 78-58. The Cyclones, fresh off an emotional home win over rival Iowa, were sluggish - to say the least - from the opening tip. Alcorn State (2-8) took advantage, knocking down four of their first five tries from 3-point range for a 14-5 lead.
Jefferson was jogging toward the tunnel that leads to the visiting locker room at EverBank Field when video footage showed something fly just over his head. Jefferson took off his helmet and walked toward the stands as sideline staff attempted to restrain him. I don't even know what happened, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said of Jefferson. Seahawks defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson was also ejected late in the fourth quarter as tempers flared between the two teams.

PITTSBURGH - When the Pittsburgh Steelers take the field Sunday night, their teammate will be on their minds and also on their feet. Among the other players who are planning to wear cleats in honor of Shazier are receiver Antonio Brown, defensive ends Stephon Tuitt and Cam Heyward, linebacker TJ Watt.
Morris and Trammell were finally elected Sunday into the Baseball Hall of Fame, where they have belonged all along. It doesn't matter that they were elected by the Modern Era ballot and not the Baseball Writers Association of America. Now, after not having a Tigers player elected into the Hall of Fame since 1992, the Tigers have two players going into Cooperstown a quarter-century later. Finally, the Tigers' great 1984 team, which won the franchise's last World Series, is represented in the Hall of Fame.
The biggest knock against him is the concern that his reliance on his speed could limit his effectiveness as he ages. Once you factor in his below-average fielding and baserunning, Martinez trails Cain in value by a fairly decent margin. His only season with a WAR below 3 came in 2016, when he produced 2.5 in just 100 1/3 innings pitched. He is still good enough to be a No 3 starter for most teams, which carries a lot of value.
One of sports media's most impressive streaks came to an end on Sunday: NFL RedZone host Scott Hanson took a bathroom break. For the past four years, Hanson has guided viewers through the RedZone channel's non-stop, commercial-free football action without leaving his desk for a bathroom break. It was an impressive display of endurance and conditioning to pull off such a feat, but nothing lasts forever. Hanson has been on the job since 2009, so he had taken bathroom breaks before.

They try and make the best decision for the player, Texans coach Bill O'Brien said after the game. Another part of me says we have taken a giant step backward this year and I don't understand why.
