Colts Release RB Chris Rainey


Scott Boehm/Getty Images(ANDERSON, Ind.) -- The Indianapolis Colts released running back Chris Rainey on Monday for a violation of an undisclosed team rule.

Head coach Chuck Pagano made the announcement at training camp and would not provide any details for the reason Rainey was released.

"It's unfortunate and [a] violation of team rules," Pagano said.  "It was an in-house deal, that's all I'm going to say about that."

Rainey has a history of off-field issues and was arrested back in January 2013 after being charged with one count of simple battery with a woman.

The Colts signed Rainey last season and he played in two games before going on the injured reserve list.

Greg Hardy Admits to Being a 'Distraction' for Panthers


Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images(SPARTANBURG, S.C.) --  Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy has had a tumultuous offseason after he was arrested in May.  As the team kicked off training camp last week, the Pro Bowler admitted that his legal situation has been a huge distraction for the team.

"I hate that I have distracted my team," Hardy said as he addressed the media for the first time since being arrested and subsequently found guilty for assaulting and threatening his ex-girlfriend in May.

Hardy, 26, was arrested on May 13 after an incident in his Charlotte, North Carolina apartment.  He was found guilty by a Mecklenburg County judge on July 15 and sentenced to 18 months probation and 60 days in jail, the latter of which was suspended.

The decision was appealed by Hardy's attorney, who asked for a jury trial. That trial won't take place until after the season.

"I can't answer that question," Hardy said when asked if he has apologized to his teammates. "It's a team thing."

The Panthers made Hardy their franchise player after he led the team in sacks last season, guaranteeing him $13.1 million in 2014.  He will be a free agent in 2015.

Ray Rice Chooses Not to Appeal Two-Game Suspension


Rob Carr/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) -- Ravens running back Ray Rice has chosen not to appeal his two-game suspension for violating the NFL's conduct policy.

Rice was not expected to appeal the ban, which means he will miss the Ravens' Sept. 7 regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals and their Sept. 11 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

He had a three-day window to take action, but that time has now elapsed.  Rice has yet to publicly comment on the suspension.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell also fined Rice three game checks, which is worth a total of $529,000.

The three-time Pro Bowler is still allowed to participate in training camp and play in all four of the Ravens' preseason games.

Rice was accused of striking his now-wife, Janay, unconscious during an altercation in an Atlantic City casino last February.

Tim Clark Earns First PGA Win Since 2010


ThinkStock(MONTREAL) -- Tim Clark birdied five of the last eight holes to rally past Jim Furyk and win the RBC Canadian Open at Royal Montreal on Sunday.

Furyk, who entered the day with a three-stroke lead, shot a 1-under 69 Sunday, but Clark's 5-under 65 was enough to edge Furyk by one stroke.

"It looked like Jim wasn't going to make any mistakes," said Clark, who earned his first PGA win since the 2010 Players Championship. "He was pretty solid, so I knew I had to make birdies. At that point, there was nothing to lose. Suddenly I got hot and I went with it."

Clark finishes at 17-under 263, which ties the tournament record for total score set in 1952 by Johnny Palmer.

Dicky Pride shot a 63 Sunday, matching the course record.

Maddux, Glavine Headline Baseball HOF Inductees


(COOPERSTOWN, N.Y.) -- Pitchers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine, slugger Frank Thomas, and skippers Bobby Cox, Joe Torre and Tony La Russa were all inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame Sunday.

Maddux captured four Cy Young Awards and won 15 or more games for 17 straight seasons. He finishes his 23 season career with 355 wins, a 3.16 ERA, 3,371 strikeouts and a 1.14 WHIP

"I spent 12 years in Chicago, 11 in Atlanta, and both places are very special," Maddux said. "Without the experiences in both cities, I would not be standing here today."

Maddux wasn't the only inductee to serve time in Atlanta. Glavine also pitched with Maddux, winning two CY Young Awards, while Cox coached the team to the 1995 World Series Championship.

"I'm truly humbled to stand here before you," Cox said. "To Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux, and I have to mention the third member of the big three -- John Smoltz -- I can honestly say I would not be standing here if it weren't for you guys."

Thomas finishes his 19 major league seasons with two MVP Awards, a .301 batting average, 521 home runs and 1,704 RBIs.

Torre managed the New York Yankees to six World Series, winning four of them.

La Russa finishes his career third all-time in coaching victories (2,728) and won three World Series titles -- one with the Athletics and two with the Cardinals.

Wainwright Earns League-Leading 13th Win


Eliot J. Schechter/MLB Photos via Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- Adam Wainwright pitched seven innings allowing no runs, five hits, and three walks while striking out five to earn his major league-leading 13th win in the St. Louis Cardinals 1-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday.

Wainwright (13-5) bounces back from his last start when he allowed four earned runs in 4 2/3 innings against the Tampa Bay Rays.

"The results usually follow my delivery," said Wainwright, who lowered his ERA to 1.92. "When I control my delivery -- I told you I was gonna get things under wraps -- and get my arm in the right spot, success was following that.

"They hit some balls hard, but we played some great defense and made some pitches when we needed to."

Cubs rookie pitcher Kyle Hendricks was the tough luck loser allowing only one run, a solo homer to outfielder Matt Holliday.

The win puts the Cardinals (56-48) two games behind Milwaukee for first place in the NL Central.
