LONG POND, Pa. (AP) — IndyCar driver Robert Wickens is apparently being taken by helicopter for medical treatment following a first-lap accident at Pocono Raceway. The Canadian driver was attempting to pass Ryan Hunter-Reay (ray) when the two cars touched. That caused Hunter-Reay's car to careen into the wall and Wickens' car was pulled along for the ride. Wickens launched over Hunter-Reay's car and sailed into the catch fence, where the tub of his IndyCar spun several times before crashing back onto the track.

Darvish has made just eight starts in his first year with the Cubs, going 1-3 with a 4.95 ERA. He's been sidelined by triceps and elbow injuries.

Meanwhile, veteran defensive tackle Kyle Williams is in jeopardy of missing the start of the regular season with a knee injury.
