COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — The University of Maryland has fired two trainers that were involved in the treatment of Jordan McNair after he collapsed on the field and subsequently died of heatstroke. Maryland has not formally announced the decision and has never named the trainers placed on paid leave. An athletic department spokesman says “The trainers that were previously on administrative leave are no longer employed at the university.”
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been ruled out of Sunday’s game at Green Bay because of a throwing shoulder injury. Instead, Brock Osweiler will make his fifth consecutive start. The Dolphins have a bye next week, which means Tannehill won’t be back until Week 12 at the earliest. Coach Adam Gase says the goal is for Tannehill to return for the Indianapolis game Nov. 25. Miami is 5-4 overall, and 2-2 with Osweiler starting.
ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson is expected to be ready for spring training following surgery on his left wrist. The Braves say Swanson had a procedure on Monday to remove a “loose body” in the wrist. The 24-year-old hit .238 with 14 home runs and 59 RBI in 136 games last season. Swanson was left off the National League Division Series roster against the Los Angeles Dodgers after earlier tearing a ligament in his left hand.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Kevin Harvick has been stripped of his berth in NASCAR’s championship race because his winning car failed inspection after Texas Motor Speedway. NASCAR says the discovery, made after Harvick’s win, negates the automatic berth he earned into the finale. The No. 4 had an illegal spoiler. The rule in question states that spoilers must be used exactly as supplied from the manufacturer and not altered.
