BROWNS-CALLAWAY

CLEVELAND — As Browns wide receiver Antonio Callaway stood by, a police officer said he "got real nervous" when he found bullets and a gun part while searching the rookie's vehicle.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL:

AWARD HOPEFULS

Stanford running back Bryce Love's decision to return for his senior year instantly made him a preseason front-runner for some of college football's top individual awards. Love won the Doak Walker Award as college football's top running back and was runner-up in the Heisman Trophy balloting last year as he rushed for 2,118 yards. He's an obvious candidate for both awards again this year, even though he will have a tough time matching his production from last season. By Steve Megargee.

SOCCER:

MARADONA-EX-WIFE LAWSUIT

MIAMI — Argentine soccer great Diego Maradona can pursue a lawsuit in the U.S. against his ex-wife claiming she misappropriated some of his money to buy Florida real estate, an appeals court ruled Wednesday.
