A.J. Green Carted Off Practice Field

National Football League(CINCINNATI) -- Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.J. Green aggravated a previous injury to his big right toe during practice Wednesday, causing the three-time Pro Bowler to be carted off the field.Green first injured the toe in the team's season opener versus the Baltimore Ravens.As for Green's status for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers, Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson isn't convinced the wideout won't take the field."In my mind, he is going to be able to play until somebody tells me he's not," Jackson said. "I don't look at it like that until I have to. So I'm not worried about that right now. The guys that are out there, we have a game plan that we're installing and putting in for a team that we're playing and we'll get everybody ready to play."In four games this season, Green has 17 catches for 314 yards and two touchdowns.

Blue Jackets Lose Dubinsky for at Least 6 Weeks

A.J. Messier/NHLI via Getty Images(COLUMBUS, Ohio) -- Columbus Blue Jackets center Brandon Dubinsky is expected to miss six weeks after having surgery Wednesday to repair an abdominal injury.“It’s a big blow, but again, I feel good about this group,” Blue Jackets head coach Todd Richards said.“I’d like to have Brandon in the lineup, but everyone deals with injuries at different parts of the season, and we just have to deal with it now. Other players are going to get great opportunities, because Brandon is a guy that plays an important role and logs a lot of ice time, penalty kill, power play, 5-on-5 and key situations. It’s just more opportunities now for other players.”Dubinsky, who scored 16 goals and dished out 34 assists last season, was injured during practice Monday. He was first listed as day-to-day, but the team's medical staff determined surgery was the best option.Dubinsky joins a lengthy list of injured Blue Jackets that includes Nathan Horton (back), Ryan Murray (knee) and Boone Jenner (hand).

Stanford Looks to Rebound Against Washington State

Stanford Looks to Rebound Against Washington State

Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images(STANFORD, Calif.) -- After a tough 17-14 loss to Notre Dame last weekend, the (25) Cardinal will look to get back on their winning ways against Washington State on Friday night.

The Cardinal defense has allowed 36 points this season and just four offensive touchdowns. Opposing teams have averaged 38 rushing attempts per game.

"An offense like that, you give them a lot of opportunities, they're going to throw for 700 yards, score 50 something points," head coach David Shaw said of the explosive Cougar offense.  "If you give them less opportunities then you make it almost impossible for them to do that and now you're playing in one of those close games."

Stanford is 39-4 at home since 2007, when the stadium opened.

Giants Knock Off Nationals, Headed to NLCS

Giants Knock Off Nationals, Headed to NLCS

Brandon Mangin/MLB Photos via Getty Images(SAN FRANCISCO) -- The Giants are back in the NLCS again after beating the Washington Nationals 3-2 on Tuesday night.

The Giants took the best-of-five series 3-1 and will travel to St. Louis to take on the Cardinals on Saturday night in Game 1 of the NLCS.

Joe Panik scored the go-ahead run in the seventh inning on Aaron Barrett's bases-loaded wild pitch and Santiago Casilla closed the door in the top of the ninth.

Ryan Vogelsong tossed 5.2 innings and gave up one run with four strikeouts, but got the no decision after Bryce Harper hit a game-tying homer run in the top of the seventh.

Hunter Strickland gave up the homer to Harper, but when Panik scored in the bottom half of the inning, he got the win in relief.

"It's been a remarkable journey. I wouldn't trade it for the world," Giants outfielder Hunter Pence said. "If it was easy, it wouldn't be as fun."

The Nationals had the best record in the National League, but will watch the rest of the playoffs from home.

"It's tender and it's bitter and all of those things, but I'm proud of them," rookie manager Matt Williams said.

Magic’s Victor Oladipo and Channing Frye Suffer Sprained MCLs

Ingrim Publishing/Thinkstock(ORLANDO, Fla.) -- As the preseason opens in the NBA, the Orlando Magic are already dealing with injuries to two starters as guard Victor Oladipo and forward Channing Frye are both dealing with sprained MCLs.

Oladipo suffered the injury in his right knee after landing awkwardly during a scrimmage on Friday. Frye suffered the same injury in his left knee during a scrimmage.

Magic head coach Jaque Vaughn said, "It's not ideal and we'd love to have all 15 guys ready to rock and roll, participating and learning each other, but that's not where we are. But you know we won't complain and we'll keep this thing rolling."

"It gives an opportunity for other guys to understand how we want to play," he continued.

It is unknown just when either player will be ready to return to the court, or if either will be ready to play when the team opens up the regular season on Oct. 28.

Oladipo was the runner-up in last season's Rookie of the Year voting after he averaged 13.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game.

Frye is entering his ninth NBA season and his first with the Magic.

Titans Safety Bernard Pollard Out of the Season

Titans Safety Bernard Pollard Out of the Season

NFL via Getty Images(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) -- The Tennessee Titans defense has taken a big blow as starting safety Bernard Pollard will miss the remainder of the season after rupturing his right Achilles tendon on Sunday.

Pollard suffered the injury with just 1:09 left in the game when Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer threw what would wind up being the game-deciding play.

"Bernard has been a good leader and a good player for us," Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "That happens in this game. It's unfortunate. We'll certainly hope he stays involved with our team, which I think is an important piece of it. But I know how disappointed he was [Sunday] night, as we all are."

The 29-year-old Pollard is in his ninth NFL season, and second with the Titans. He led the team in tackles last season with 99, and signed a multi-year deal with the team during the offseason.

This will be the first time Pollard has been placed on injured reserve during his career.

The Titans have the 26th overall rated defense in the NFL this season.

Seahawks Get Past Redskins, 27-17 on “Monday Night Football”

Seahawks Get Past Redskins, 27-17 on “Monday Night Football”

Kevin Casey/Getty Images(LANDOVER, Md.) -- Although the final score didn't fully indicate it, the Seattle Seahawks were able to easily put away the Washington Redskins, 27-17 on Monday night.

Despite the win, it was a frustrating night for Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin, who had three touchdowns called back due to penalties.

"Well, the first one I was cool with," he said. "I was like, 'OK.' Then when the second one happened, I was like, 'Wow.' And then when the third one happened I just flipped my hands down. I couldn't believe it."

Seattle had 13 penalties for 90 yards, but were still able to pull out the win.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had a memorable night as he completed 18 of 24 passes for 201 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. He also rushed for 122 yards on 11 carries and added a touchdown on the ground in the win.

Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins rebounded from a rough game start against the New York Giants on Sept. 25 as he threw for 283 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions.

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson also had a big game for Washington as he caught five passes for 157 yards and a touchdown.

Seattle improved to 3-1 while Washington fell to 1-4.

Nationals Avoid Elimination, Top Giants 4-1 in Game 3 of NLDS

Nationals Avoid Elimination, Top Giants 4-1 in Game 3 of NLDS

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(SAN FRANCISCO) -- Madison Bumgarner's throwing error in the seventh inning led to the Washington Nationals scoring two runs, while two more -- the last coming on a Bryce Harper solo home run in the ninth -- led the team to avoid elimination and top the San Francisco Giants 4-1 in Game 3 of their NLDS Monday.

The Giants' 10-game postseason winning streak is over, but they still lead the series 2-1.  

Both Bumgarner and Doug Fister pitched brilliantly. Fister allowed four hits, walked three, while striking out three in the win. Bumgarner pitched seven innings, allowing six hits, two earned runs, one walk, while striking out six in the loss -- he hadn't allowed a run in 21 straight postseason innings until the seventh inning.

Wilson Ramos put down a sacrifice bunt that rolled between the mound and the first-base line. Bumgarner fielded the ball and tried to get the runner out at third, but his throw went wide of Pablo Sandoval's glove, allowing Ian Desmond and Harper to score. Asdrubal Cabrera then hit an RBI single to give the Nationals a 3-0 lead.

San Francisco attempted to rally in the ninth, but Nationals' pitcher Drew Storen settled down after that, allowing only one run to score to force a Game 4, which will take place Tuesday in San Francisco. Gio Gonzalez will take the mound for Washington and will be opposed by Ryan Vogelsong.

Michigan RB Derrick Green’s Season Is Over

iStockPhoto/Thinkstock(ANN ARBOR, Mich.) --Things keep getting worse for the University of Michigan football program.

The Wolverines leading rusher, Derrick Green, suffered a broken clavicle during the team's loss to Rutgers Saturday and will miss the remainder of the season, Michigan head coach Brady Hoke announced Monday.                                                                                                                                         In six games this season, Green has rushed for 471 yards and three touchdowns for Michigan (2-4, 0-2 Big Ten) which is off to its worst start in Big Ten play since 1967.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

Without Green the Wolverines will use sophomore De'Veon Smith, redshirt junior Justice Hayes and possibly sophomore Drake Johnson at running back."I'm very confident in the three guys that will be doing most of the work at running back," Hoke said. "I'm highly confident in what they bring and what they can do."

Green's three replacements have combined for 411 rushing yards and four touchdowns this season.           Michigan hosts Penn State (4-1, 1-1 Big Ten) Saturday night.                                                                                                                                Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

 

 

Alabama Loses RB Drake for at Least 8-10 Weeks

Alabama Loses RB Drake for at Least 8-10 Weeks istockphoto(TUSCALOOSA, Ala.) -- Alabama lost more than a football game last Saturday: running back Kenyan Drake has suffered a broken leg in the team's 23-17 loss at Ole Miss.

Alabama head Coach Nick Saban says it will be 8-10 more weeks before Drake can even think about playing football again. Losing Drake means the Crimson Tide loses versatility. Drake has rushed for 126 yards and four touchdowns while also catching four balls for 145 yards and two touchdowns this season."Kenyan has a lot of production for us and has done a really good job all year long," Saban said. "I don't think there's any question about the fact that when you do lose a player like that it does have some impact.

No. 7 Alabama (4-1, 1-1 SEC) will play Arkansas in Fayetteville on Saturday.

ESPN: Nuggets Agree on Five-Year Extension with Kenneth Faried

Christopher Trotman/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Fresh off his dominating performance for the United States in the FIBA World Cup, Yahoo! Sports and ESPN reports that the Denver Nuggets and forward Kenneth Faried have agreed on a five-year extension.

The deal is reportedly worth $60 million, and Faried will make no less than $52 million over the duration of the contract.

Entering his fourth season with the Nuggets, Faried has steadily improved since the Nuggets drafted him 22nd overall back in 2011. While he is not the team's star player, Faried is seen a relentless rebounder who plays with high energy and is a true "glue" guy who plays solid defense and is a key part of the Nuggets starting rotation.

In 80 games last season, the 24-year-old Faried averaged 13.7 points and 8.6 rebounds in 27.2 minutes per game.

Steve Nash Open to Playing Beyond this Season

Steve Nash Open to Playing Beyond this Season

NBA via Los Angeles Lakers(NEW YORK) -- Even though Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash has had to battle to stay on the court in recent years, with one year left on his contract he's open to playing beyond the 2014-2015 season.

At 40 years old, Nash is the already the oldest player in the NBA. He appeared in just 15 games for the Lakers last season, and just 50 the season before that.

Nash was expected by many to retire once his current contract expires, but he left the door open for extending his career beyond this season.

“If I have a chance to play, it would have to be here. I’m not going to at this stage move somewhere else for a season and move my kids there,” Nash told the Los Angeles Daily News of the possibility of playing longer.

Nash is a two-time league MVP and is likely headed to the Hall of Fame one day. This past season, Nash averaged 6.8 points and 5.7 assists per game.
