    Getty Takkarist McKinley during the 2020 season with the Falcons. A 6-foot-2, 250-pound presence came walking inside the Los Angeles Rams locker room on Thursday, September 22 with a smile…and honesty…in tow. Takkarist McKinley is now on his fourth NFL stop — four destinations since being taken in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft. And his last live appearance saw him leave with a ruptured Achilles tendon in Week 15 of the 2021 season. Ten months has since passed following the periods of surgery, rehab and awaiting a chance to continue his NFL career. Now, McKinley isn’t just heading to the “Rams House,” but he’s reuniting with the man who helped decide to cut him from the Atlanta Falcons in Raheem Morris. Plus the Rams marks an L.A. homecoming for the edge rusher who became a collegiate star at nearby Westwood with UCLA. McKinley walked in gleaming while standing in front of his new locker. But he also shared his honesty in his first interview with the L.A. media since his Bruin days…which includes what he...

    Serena Williams is not done just yet, and as the stakes are getting higher in the US Open, so too are the prices to watch her play. Williams advanced to the third round on Wednesday by beating No. 2 seed Anett Kontaveit 7-6, 2-6, 6-2, and the ticket market is exploding as she continues her farewell tour. According to data from TickPick, the 'get-in' price for Williams' third round match Friday vs. Ajla Tomljanovic is $565, with the average ticket now costing $605.  Serena Williams held her nerve in the final set Wednesday to defeat Estonia's Anett Kontaveit That second figure is a staggering 221% more expensive than what the average third round ticket was going for - $188 - before she had advanced. The Open is expected to be Williams' last tournament of her career, and it wasn't even clear if she'd make her way to the hard court after spending a year out of the sport. But it was confirmed in July the six-time tournament champ would take her last crack at winning in New York, and ticket prices...
    Nick Kyrgios has advanced to the third round of the US Open in trademark style - complaining to the chair umpire of marijuana smoke, being warned for spitting on the court and letting fly with a continual series of expletives at his own support box. Kyrgios won the first two sets against Frenchman Benjamin Bonzi before he began to unravel, losing the third set.  He then steadied to wrap it up 7-6 (3), 6-4, 4-6, 6-4, despite continuing to hurl barbs at his own support box.  Kyrgios somehow found new grounds for complaint as he told the chair umpire during the third set that he was being affected by marijuana smoke in the air; which commentators said 'they'd never heard of before'.

    It was a night to remember for all those present and those watching at home as 40-year-old Serena Williams was able to summon up the fortitude to win her second round-match at the US Open over world No. 2 Anett Kontaveit.   Williams seemed to turn back the clock, putting on a brilliant performance in the first set, struggling in the second and then coming out of the locker room to dominate the third set with a final score of 7-6, 2-6, 6-2.  The occasion was one of Williams' best performances this season, with the third set in particular a point of note as Kontaveit faltered and Serena got stronger. So what was it in the bathroom break at Flushing Meadows that got Serena to that point?  A reporter asked Serena if she did anything during her trip to the washroom that helped focus her efforts for her dominant final set.  Serena Williams continues writing the story book after a second round win on Wednesday  Serena Williams on what she did in the bathroom to come back in the third set...

Williams REFUSES to confirm she'll retire after the US Open Despite revealing in a Vogue interview earlier this month that she would be 'evolving away' from tennis, Serena has remained vague on the exact timeframe.  It was expected that the US Open - where she won her first ever Grand Slam title - would be her last tournament.   But now, it appears Flushing Meadow might not stage the 23-time Grand Slam champion's final ever singles match as she insisted she was going to remain 'vague' on her retirement plans.  Asked after her first-round victory Monday night whether this will definitively be her final tournament, Williams replied with a knowing smile: 'Yeah, I've been pretty vague about it, right?'

    TENNIS QUEEN Emma Raducanu has been handed a tough draw as she looks to defend her US Open crown. The Brit, 19, faces wily campaigner and history-maker Alize Cornet – this will be a record 63rd consecutive major appearance for the Frenchwoman – in the first round in New York next week. 4Emma Raducanu faces a tricky task in the first round of her US Open defenceCredit: Getty 4The tournament is expected to be the last of Serena Williams' sensational careerCredit: Reuters If 11th seed Raducanu progresses, she could face either Japan’s Naomi Osaka or American Danielle Collins in the third round – and then maybe Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina from Kazakhstan in the fourth round.

    THIS is the moment furious Rory McIlroy THREW a fan’s remote control golf ball into water. That’s before security promptly escorted the joker away. 3Rory McIlroy was not happy when a remote controlled golf ball got on the courseCredit: @GolfAddictsNFT 3McIlroy finally grabbed hold of the ball before launching it into waterCredit: @GolfAddictsNFT McIlroy, 33, was competing in the third round of the BMW Championship when the bizarre incident occurred. Lining up a putt at the 15th hole, the Northern Irish star was interrupted when a punter chucked a golf ball onto the field. Amusingly, the ball then began to move around by itself, with the cheeky prankster controlling it remotely from the sides. But McIlroy failed to see the funny side ahead during the second tournament of the FedEx Cup playoffs. As the ball darted around his feet, McIlroy attempted to block it with his putter. He succeeded when the fan failed to control the ball into the hole. McIlroy then stared at the wag before hurling the gadget with all his might. There was no mistaking where he...
    Getty Cody Ford #74 of the Buffalo Bills react during the fourth quarter against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Highmark Stadium on September 12, 2021 in Orchard Park, New York. The Buffalo Bills are in the midst of figuring out which players will be selected for the team’s 53-man roster once the 2022 NFL season starts, and while there are a lot of tough decisions to be made at multiple positions, Bleacher Report’s Ian Wharton suggests there’s one obvious cut to make. On Wednesday, August 17, Wharton urged the Bills to release offensive lineman Cody Ford. While Buffalo traded up to select Ford with their second-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, his “career fell apart relatively quickly after he never developed as a starter,” Wharton wrote.

    Getty Head coach Matt LaFleur of the NFC looks on during the 2022 NFL Pro Bowl against the AFC at Allegiant Stadium on February 06, 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada. (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images) The Green Bay Packers currently have one of the most coveted luxuries in the NFL, a backup quarterback with a starter’s potential — and now might be the best time to rid themselves of it. The aforementioned sentiment perhaps doesn’t appear logical on its face. If every franchise wants the security of a blanket of a second-string signal caller they know they can trust, why should a team like the Packers be in a hurry to move on from a player like Jordan Love? The answer is they shouldn’t — until a competitor is willing to pay a starter’s price for him. And that time appears to be fast-approaching. Green Bay is one catastrophic injury, or one appeal ruling on Cleveland Browns‘ quarterback Deshaun Watson, away from moving into an even more enviable position — the ability to trade a first-round quarterback for...

    LONDON (AP) — Premier League players will no longer take the knee ahead of every match, but will do so at “significant moments” during the upcoming season in a gesture against racism. The gesture, which started in June 2020 to show support for the Black Lives Matter campaign, will now be used more sparingly in order to “amplify the message that racism has no place in football or society.” Premier League captains agreed that teams will take the knee ahead of this weekend’s opening round of games, for dedicated “No Room for Racism” matches in October and March, on Boxing Day, the final round of the season and the FA Cup and League Cup finals. The Premier League captains, who met last week, said in a joint statement: “We have decided to select significant moments to take the knee during the season to highlight our unity against all forms of racism and in so doing we continue to show solidarity for a common cause.” ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

    EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings signed rookies Andrew Booth Jr. and Ed Ingram to complete their draft-class contracts Sunday as players began to report to training camp. Booth, a cornerback, was a second-round pick out of Clemson, 42nd overall. Ingram, a guard, was a second-round selection out of LSU, 59th overall. The Vikings signed their eight other draft picks earlier this summer. The Vikings announced 31 players who reported to team headquarters. The first wave included all rookies, some inexperienced returners, some players recovering from injuries and all three quarterbacks on the roster: Kirk Cousins, Sean Mannion and Kellen Mond. The remainder of the players must report by Tuesday. The first full-team practice is Wednesday at the TCO Performance Center, where the team shifted training camp in 2018. ___ More AP NFL coverage: https://apnews.com/hub/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

    Getty Head coach Matt LaFleur of the Green Bay Packers looks on from the sidelines during the first quarter against the Los Angeles Rams at Lambeau Field on November 28, 2021 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Green Bay Packers have one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history under contract for the next three seasons, but once you get past Aaron Rodgers on the depth chart, questions abound. The Pack traded up to select Jordan Love with the 26th pick in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft with the idea of installing him as Rodgers’ heir apparent. Rodgers responded by getting angry, pushing for a trade, winning consecutive NFL MVP Awards (the third and fourth of his career) then maneuvering into a new extension for over $150 million that makes the highest paid player annually in league history. To say that Love has missed the boat in Green Bay is a vast, vast understatement. But that isn’t necessarily his fault. Love has had limited opportunities to prove his worth under center for the Packers, and it...
    A US golfer has gone viral following an epic on-course meltdown that sparked rumours he is about to defect to Greg Norman's rebel LIV tour. Jason Kokrak, 37, was competing in the PGA Travelers Championship event in Cromwell, Connecticut when he lost his cool in dramatic scenes that stunned onlookers. After a first-round 67, Kokrak found himself four over par in the second round following two double bogeys. In the lead-up to his tantrum on the green, Kokrak hit his tee shot 327 yards on the right par four into the left rough.  He was only 43 yards from the hole when he bizarrely blasted his shot right over the green and across a road.  US golfer Jason Kokrak has gone viral following an epic on-course meltdown, sparking rumours he is about to defect from the PGA to Greg Norman's rebel LIV tour Australian golf legend Greg Norman is the CEO of LIV Golf, the Saudi-backed competition that has kicked off a civil war in the sport Kokrak, ranked 33 in the world, was said to be fuming.  He then...
    Patrick Smith/Getty Images Washington wide receiver Terry McLaurin celebrates a touchdown reception against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field on September 8, 2019. The Baltimore Ravens’ draft-day decision to trade Marquise Brown to the Arizona Cardinals leaves them short on established wide receiver talent — with 2021 first-round pick Rashod Bateman, Devin Duvernay, James Proche and Tylan Wallace the top wideouts on the 90-man roster.

    Getty Clelin Ferrell with Marquel Lee. Through the early months of Dave Ziegler being the general manager of the Las Vegas Raiders, he’s shown a strong willingness to make trades. He’s dealt for players like Davante Adams and Rock Ya-Sin while sending away players like Yannick Ngakoue and Bryan Edwards. He’s clearly open to making the right trades when they are presented. Recently, Ziegler decided to decline the fifth-year options for all three 2019 first-round picks, including No. 4 overall pick Clelin Ferrell. The former Clemson defensive end hasn’t had notable success since entering the league. He was highly touted coming out of college, works hard and is coachable. Perhaps a change of scenery is what he needs to find success. Gary Davenport of Bleacher Report believes that Ferrell should request a trade soon and get on another roster before the season starts: With that said, it’s hard to imagine Ferrell doing any more for the Raiders in 2022 than he did the past three seasons.

    TULSA, Okla. (AP) — It’s been a long time since Bubba Watson contended for the PGA Championship. And he was right there for a while on Saturday. An up-and-down third round at blustery Southern Hills put Watson tantalizingly close to the lead until he faded late with some trouble finding fairways and greens over the back nine. A putter that was razor sharp in a round of 63 on Saturday blunted down the back stretch. Still, a 3-over 73 was good enough to keep the 43-year-old within sight of the youth movement leading the championship heading into Sunday’s final round. But he could have literally been within touching distance on the first tee if not for a swing that got a little too loose in the late afternoon. He’ll start the final round tied for seventh, seven strokes behind 27-year-old rookie leader Mito Pereira. “Yesterday I made them all and today I missed them on the back nine,” Watson said of a putting stroke that was off by inches Saturday. “Wish they would have went in.

    The emergence of former LSU teammates Justin Jefferson and Ja’Marr Chase casts doubt on the conventional wisdom that NFL teams can’t count on rookie wide receivers. This year’s draft class is eager to continue the trend. “Those guys put on a show their rookie year coming from the SEC and LSU,” Ohio State’s Chris Olave said. “That was huge to see. That was must-watch TV, especially with Ja’Marr Chase this past year, probably one of the best rookie performances ever. That definitely put motivation to me.” Receivers taken in the first round this year should have a chance to make an immediate impact on the playoff race, since a few of the league’s top teams need to upgrade at that position. The Green Bay Packers have posted the NFC’s best regular-season record each of the past two seasons, but traded two-time All-Pro Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders. The Kansas City Chiefs, who have reached the Super Bowl two of the past three seasons, sent three-time All-Pro Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins. Kansas City has since added...

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars signed defensive end Arden Key to a one-year contract on Wednesday, giving them an athletic pass rusher to play opposite Josh Allen and potentially alongside rookie Aiden Hutchinson. Key should be an upgrade from 2020 first-round draft pick K’Lavon Chaisson and veteran Jihad Ward. He is coming off his best year, recording 6 1/2 sacks for San Francisco while playing with Pro Bowler Nick Bosa. A third-round draft pick from LSU in 2018, the 6-foot-5, 240-pound Key spent the first three years of his NFL career with Oakland/Las Vegas before signing with the 49ers. He has 71 tackles and 9 1/2 sacks in 54 games. Jacksonville has the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft for the second straight year and could use it to add Hutchinson, the Michigan standout who had 14 sacks last season. ___ More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/hub/nfl and https://apnews.com/hub/pro-32 and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

    The fourth round of peace talks between Russia and Ukraine began on Monday, and before the talks, officials from both countries hinted at progress after weekend negotiations. Hopes of de-escalating the war in Ukraine come after a bloody weekend that saw an American journalist Brent Renaud killed by Russian gunfire and more than 30 cruise missiles hit a Ukrainian base near Poland, leaving at least 35 people dead. Overnight shellings also occurred in numerous parts of Ukraine hours before the talks. "Russia is already beginning to talk constructively," Mykhailo Podolyak, an adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and a member of the peace talk delegation, said in an online video translated by Reuters.

    Getty Head coach Matt LaFleur of the Green Bay Packers runs off the field after defeating the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium on December 19, 2021 in Baltimore, Maryland. (Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images) It has been a short and tumultuous road for quarterback Jordan Love through his first two years in the NFL, and at least one analyst thinks it’s already time for the Green Bay Packers to call it quits on the entire experiment. The Packers selected Love with the 26th pick in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft as the eventual successor to long-time starter Aaron Rodgers. But that plan backfired almost immediately and in several ways. Rodgers, presumably offended by his team drafting his replacement while he was still in uniform, responded by winning back-to-back MVP Awards. In between those two seasons, he also tried to force his way out of Green Bay — unhappy with his exclusion on decisions involving player personnel and play calling. Now, Rodgers is holding the Packers front office hostage while he decides whether he’d like to...
    Florida authorities investigating the death of Full House star Bob Saget now suspect that he collapsed and struck his head against the marble floor in his hotel room bathroom, before regaining consciousness and stumbling into bed, where he was found dead more than 12 hours later.  Saget, 65, died of a brain bleed on January 9 in room 962 at the high-end Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande. His death was ruled an accident with no signs of foul play or drugs. Investigators initially said they believed the stand-up comic sustained a fatal blow when he hit the back of his head against the bed's headboard, despite medical experts saying that his injuries were so severe that they could have resulted from being bashed with a baseball bat, or falling 30 feet.  The actor suffered extensive injuries to his head and around his eyes, reported People Magazine. Florida investigators say they now believe Bob Saget died after passing out in a hotel bathroom, falling and smashing the back of his head against the marble floor This photo shows the white marble floor inside...
    BEIJING (AP) — Finland erased a three-goal deficit to beat Sweden 4-3 in overtime Sunday, a result that gets each of the archrivals into the quarterfinals of the men’s hockey tournament at the Olympics. The United States can wrap up the top seed by beating Germany later in the day. That would make Finland the second seed, the Russians third and Sweden fourth in the knockout round. Sweden and Finland getting to OT means Canada will almost certainly be seeded fifth and need to play in the qualification round Tuesday. Barring an extremely unlikely upset loss to China in the preliminary round finale, the hosts and Canada would face off again two days later. Finland earned some extra rest with its third-period comeback. Teemu Hartikainen got the Finns on the board early in the third and Iiro Pakarinen scored twice in the final five minutes of regulation. Harri Pesonen scored the winner 2:01 into 3-on-3 OT. Lucas Wallmark, Lukas Bengtsson and captain Anton Lander scored power-play goals for Sweden, which led 3-0 just past the midway point of the second....

    Said Nurmagomedov sat down with members of the media following his dominant performance at UFC 270. Said Nurmagomedov was all smiles after his impressive first-round submission victory over Cody Stamann at UFC 270 on Saturday, Jan. 22, 2022. The fight was ended in the very first round after an impressive display of striking and grappling from the young Russian competitor. He forced his opponent to tap out only 47 seconds into the very first round. Nurmagomedov was surprised but pleased with the way the fight progressed noting that he had prepared for a much longer contest, “I was prepared for all three rounds. But I used the momentum and finished him.” Nurmagomedov took almost no damage during the bout aside from a few glancing blows and was quick to state his intention to fight again soon, “I would like to fight again before Ramadan. I also heard there will be a tournament in Brooklyn on April 8th I would like to fight there.”Said Nurmagomedov wants Marlon Vera nextWhen pressed on which opponent he had in mind for his next bout...
    Aaron Rodgers toe injury is still impacting him weeks later, but the Packers finally got some good news heading into the divisional round. Rodgers has yet to defeat the San Francisco 49ers — the team that infamously passed on him in the 2005 NFL Draft for Alex Smith — in the postseason. He can deliver that vital blow in front of thousands at Lambeau Field on Saturday. But Rodgers’ has his own issues to worry about. The Cal product hasn’t been shy about discussing everything but football in the days leading up to the game, though he did give a hint as to how his toe is feeling. Rodgers injured his toe in Week 9, and it’s been bothering him ever since. The Packers quarterback never considered surgery, and instead played through the ailment for the remainder of the regular season. Aaron Rodgers says (before showing Kay his socks) that his toe is much better. The reason why is that the fracture has healed enough to where it’s no longer unstable or moving around. https://t.co/vCmGllZV0z — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet)...

Raducanu said: "Before the match there were people in my team who didn’t want me to play." It was the first time Raducanu had been defeated over two sets at Slam level.

    BOSTON (CBS) — The New York Jets almost beat the defending champs on Sunday. Almost. But as he has done time and time again during his career, Tom Brady broke the Jets’ hearts. But not all of them. Immediately after the loss, Jets rookie cornerback Brandin Echols made a beeline for Brady with a special request. Echols had intercepted Brady just before halftime. And even though Brady had just completed a 93-yard game-winning drive right in the Jets’ defense face, Echols wanted to memorialize the moment by getting Brady’s John Hancock on the football he intercepted earlier in the game.

    SEATTLE (AP) — A thaw-out is coming for frozen Seattle and Portland, Oregon, but not before another round of snow that could compound problems for a region more accustomed to winter rain than arctic blasts. And in Nevada the governor plans to declare a state of emergency due to snow and storm conditions affecting travel in the Lake Tahoe area of northern Nevada. Forecasters say parts of western Washington could see up to 3 inches (7.6 centimeters) of snow Thursday and northwestern Oregon could see a similar amount. The normally temperate part of the Pacific Northwest has shivered with temperatures hitting the single digits in some areas this week after extreme cold air from Canada’s Fraser River Valley blew in on Sunday. Snow and ice has made travel treacherous in some parts, forced closures and travel delays and prompted people to take shelter in emergency warming centers. Temperatures could rise above freezing in Seattle Thursday and be even warmer in Portland, before airflow from the Pacific blows in on the weekend and causes the mercury to rise to more...

    Boxing fans have claimed Jake Paul's victory over Tyron Woodley on Saturday was rigged to let the YouTuber win after spotting an alleged signal from the former to hit the deck. Paul claimed victory in Tampa via a brutal right hand in round six that left former UFC star Woodley, who lost to the streaming star via split decision back in August, floored after the blow.

    JAKE PAUL led on all three judges' scorecards, before producing a HUGE knockout of Tyron Woodley in Tampa, Florida last night. The Problem Child was taking on T-Wood for a second time, after rival Tommy Fury pulled out with injury. 2Jake Paul left Tyron Woodley sprawled across the canvasCredit: Getty Paul, 24, referred to the rematch as a 'bank robbery' prior to the fight, and it turned out to be even more brutal than his first victory.
