NFL – Fields clarifies the notes, says he didn’t mean to offend fans
Chicago quarterback Justin Fields took some time to clarify the comments he made after the loss to the Green Bay Packers. He says he didn’t mean to appear dismissive of a Bears fan. Fields drew some criticism on social media for saying after the match that the loss “hurts more in the dressing room” and that the fans “do nothing”. Fields said on Wednesday that it meant the fans were not involved in the action “in connection with Sunday’s game”. He also said he was “frustrated” and did not even want a mandatory post-match press conference.

NFL – Colts scramble to find quick solution to backwater offense
The Indianapolis Colts crime thriller is built around Matt Ryan and Jonathan Taylor. Ryan was the league’s MVP in 2016. Taylor is the defender of the rush. However, two weeks into the season, the Colts have the lowest scoring average in the league at 10 points per game. Worse yet: Patrick Mahomes and the high-octane Kansas City Chiefs come to town on Sunday. Ryan, Taylor and coach Frank Reich scramble to find solutions so they can avoid a winless run.

NCAAFB – Irish look to attack to cash in on Tar Heels ‘D’
Notre Dame’s intermittent offense finally found a smoother sailing this past weekend. First-year coach Marcus Freeman wants to see the unit advance in full force in North Carolina. The Fighting Irish struggled under quarterback Tyler Buchner before suffering a season-ending injury after Week 2. Drew Pyne, Buchner’s replacement, finished strong in Notre Dame’s first win. But while Ireland’s offensive is among the worst in FBS, the same is true of North Carolina’s defense. The Tar Heels tried to fix their problems during farewell week, but Freeman knew Notre Dame needed the offense to pull their weight on Saturday.

NBA – Lonzo Bulls will undergo knee surgery and miss the start of the season
Chicago Bulls goalkeeper Lonzo Ball is scheduled to undergo surgery on his left knee next week for the second time in less than a year and miss the start of the season. The Bulls said the ball will undergo endoscopic debridement Wednesday in Los Angeles. It will be reassessed in four to six weeks. Ball played a key role in Chicago’s recovery last year after being acquired from New Orleans in a signing and trading deal. He was limited to 35 matches and did not play after January 14. Ball underwent surgery for a meniscus tear two weeks later.

NBA/WNBA – Commentator Sarver says he’s decided to sell the Suns, Mercury
Robert Sarver says he has begun the sale of Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury, a move that comes just eight days after he was suspended by the NBA for workplace misconduct including racist speech and hostile behavior toward employees. Sarver announced Wednesday, saying the sale “is the best course of action.” He has owned the teams since 2004, when he bought it for around $400 million. He is not the only owner, but the primary owner. Forbes recently estimated the value of The Suns at $1.8 billion.

WNBA – Greener’s World Cup absence affects his US teammates
Britney Grenier’s absence weighs on the minds of her NBA teammates, who are trying to fill the void created by her absence as they prepare for the Basketball World Cup that begins Thursday in Australia. The Americans are expected to win without the 6-foot-8 Greiner, but replacing her spirit and influence on and off the field is a difficult task. The team keeps her in their minds by not having anyone wear her number 15. For years, Americans have worn the number 4-15 jersey. At the World Cup, they’ll use the 4-14 and the No. 16. Brianna Jones will wear the No. 16.

NHL – Training Camps around the NHL open after another short period
Training camps around the NHL open this week less than 90 days after Colorado won the Stanley Cup. Players are accustomed to the short summer now that the pandemic has compressed the past two seasons. But this is a return to the normal, meaningful hockey calendar from October through mid-June. The full camp for teams with new coaches and those who took over last season has its benefits as well.

Nassar – Conviction related to former coach Nassar will not be re-convicted
The Michigan Supreme Court will not return the conviction of a former Michigan State University gymnastics coach who was accused of lying to investigators about campus sports doctor Larry Nassar. The state’s highest court declined to accept an appeal from the attorney general’s office. Prosecutors expanded their investigations beyond Nassar, who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting athletes, most of whom were gymnasts. But prosecutors have now lost two high-profile cases. Kathy Klags was sentenced to 90 days in prison for lying to police about what she knew about Nassar in 1997. But the Michigan Court of Appeals in December overturned her conviction and said her comments in a 2018 interview with her were inconclusive.
