Two quarterbacks out...Big Three back for Warriors...Lighting outpaces NHL
PHILADELPHIA- (AP) — Only among actors is “break a leg” a good luck expression. For the Washington Redskins, it’s become an occupational hazard for quarterbacks. Coach Jay Gruden says Colt McCoy suffered a fractured fibula in his right leg in the second quarter of Monday night’s 28-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. McCoy was starting because a gruesome injury to Alex Smith’s leg weeks ago. Well-traveled veteran Mark Sanchez is calling plays now.
KANSAS CITY (AP) — Kareem Hunt went unclaimed on NFL waivers three days after he was released by the Kansas City Chiefs. The star running back was cut Friday after TMZ released a video showing him pushing and kicking a woman during a February incident at a Cleveland hotel. Police did not charge Hunt with a crime, but the Chiefs released him for being untruthful with them about what happened.
ATLANTA (AP) — The Golden State Warriors big three are back. Stephen Curry scored 30 points, Kevin Durant had 28 and Klay Thompson chipped in with 27 as the Golden State Warriors cruised past the Atlanta Hawks 128-111.
