TOP STORIES

SPORTS BETTING-TRIBES

LAS VEGAS _ A Native American tribe in Mississippi earlier this year became the first to open a sports book on tribal lands outside Nevada following a landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling. But months after tribes cheered the end of a ban on sports betting, only two have opened sports books. That’s because the regulatory challenges and low-margin nature of the business have prompted them to carefully weigh whether their casinos truly need the amenity. By Regina Garcia-Cano.

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN

WASHINGTON _ Wednesday is the first full business day of the partial government shutdown. So far, the public and federal workers have largely been spared inconvenience and hardship because government is closed on weekends and federal employees were excused from work on Christmas Eve and Christmas. The shutdown began at midnight last Friday. Trump said the closed parts of the government will remain that way until Democrats agree to wall off the U.S.-Mexico border. By Darlene Superville.

FBN--PLAYOFF PICTURE

Barring ties in Week 17 — and there are some head-spinning scenarios should certain games end that way Sunday — the road to the playoffs is quite straight in the NFC. The path to a first-round bye in the AFC has a bunch of curves in it. By Pro Football Writer Barry Wilner. SENT: 650 words, photos.

FBN--DENVER’S DIVE

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos keep losing big games and key players. The latest casualty is rookie running back Phillip Lindsay who sustained a major right wrist injury in the Broncos’ loss at Oakland. That leaves the underperforming Case Keenum with even fewer options as he tries to salvage something out of his hugely disappointing debut season in Denver. By Pro Football Writer Arnie Stapleton.

FBN--UNDRAFTED ROOKIES

Philip Lindsay wasn’t invited to the NFL scouting combine and his name wasn’t called during the draft, but the talented running back heads the list of undrafted rookies who have made an impact this season. By Pro Football Writer Rob Maaddi. SENT: 800 words, photos.
