  • Du'Vonta Lampkin released from Texas letter of intent, eligible for Sooners

    Thursday, September 3, 2015 at 06:40 PM

    Whether Texas released Du'Vonta Lampkin from his National Letter of Intent or the NLI office granted the release, Lampkin's battle for immediate eligibility is over. Oklahoma confirmed in a statement Thursday afternoon the highly recruited defensive tackle had been released and would be eligible for the Sooners immediately. Even if he doesn't play this season, the release is crucial. Without it, Lampkin would've lost a year of eligibility as well. Lampkin had signed with the Longhorns but a few months after signing day announced he would attend another school because he couldn't qualify academically at Texas.

  • Tramel: Cowboys survive mid-major scare vs. Central Michigan

    Today at 12:10 AM

    MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. — In Brandon Weeden's first season quarterbacking the Cowboys, OSU averaged 52.3 points its first four games. Then went to Lafayette, La., to play a Ragin' Cajuns team that would win just three games all season. And the Cajuns led OSU 21-17 at halftime. So these things happen. Doesn't mean they should. OSU opened the 2015 season with a pure survival verdict. The Cowboys beat Central Michigan 24-13 Thursday night, avoiding the fate of so many Mid-American Conference upset victims over the years, but not avoiding the fate of critics wanting to know why so many of us were excited about this Mike Gundy team. The Cowboys sleep-walked through the first 34 minutes and trailed the Chippewas 17-13.

    Updated: 8 hr ago

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers spent their summer watching all their offseason mojo disappear underneath a steady stream of injuries, suspensions and lackluster play. Their reward? A date with a freshly vindicated Tom Brady. And if the Steelers are being honest following a listless preseason that ended with a 23-6 loss to Carolina on Thursday night, that's just fine. Bring on Brady and the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots. At least the games will count. Enough with the ones that don't. "What better way to start the season than to play Brady?" defensive end Cameron Heyward said.

    LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Jason Myers enjoyed a memorable debut as Jacksonville's new starting kicker. The real test, however, is yet to come. Myers kicked a 47-yard field goal with 3:32 left, giving the Jaguars a 17-16 preseason victory over the Washington Redskins on Thursday night. It was Myers' first game since replacing Josh Scobee, who was traded to Pittsburgh on Monday. Myers — a former Arena League player who has never kicked in an NFL game — earlier missed a 56-yarder. "Because he missed the first one and the game (was tight), he knew all eyes were watching him. And he nailed it," Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said. "When he went out there for the second one, I was really pleased with how he handled it.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — With a series loss in St. Louis behind them and a showdown with the New York Mets beginning on Monday, the Washington Nationals enjoyed a breather Thursday night. Ryan Zimmerman continued his torrid stretch with three hits and four RBIs, Jordan Zimmermann pitched six solid innings and the Nationals opened a seven-game homestand with a 15-1 rout of the Atlanta Braves. Washington moved within six games of the first-place Mets, who were off Thursday, in the NL East. "Power and patience," Nationals manager Matt Williams said after his team collected 18 hits and eight walks. The Braves have lost nine straight and 16 of 17.

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — Chase Daniel threw a touchdown pass and the Kansas City Chiefs beat the St. Louis Rams 24-17 to finish unbeaten in the preseason on Thursday night. The Chiefs (4-0) were unbeaten in the preseason for the first time since 1969, the season the franchise won its lone Super Bowl title. The Rams (0-4) were winless for the first time since 2002 and are 2-10 the past three preseasons. Tavon Austin had the most electrifying play of the game, reversing field on a 43-yard scamper after a short catch that set up St. Louis' first touchdown. The Rams played most of their regulars for two series, although they were down to fourth string at running back, and the Chiefs rested all of their starters. St.

    MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins first-round draft pick DeVante Parker, who had been recovering from foot surgery, made his preseason debut Thursday night and caught a pass in his team's 22-17 loss to Tampa Bay. Almost all of the Dolphins' starters sat out, and they didn't use either of their top two quarterbacks, Ryan Tannehill or Matt Moore. Parker played briefly, was targeted three times and caught a pass on a slant-in for 11 yards for Miami (1-3). "It's a good feeling to get back out there after missing a lot of practices," Parker said. "I wasn't thinking about my foot at all. My foot feels good." Some Tampa Bay starters played a bit in the exhibition finale for both teams, but No. 1 overall draft pick Wi

  • Tebow throws 2 TD passes in Eagles' 24-18 loss to Jets

    Updated: 9 hr ago

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — It was Tebow Time again. At least for one more night. Tim Tebow threw two touchdown passes and an interception in his final opportunity to make Philadelphia's roster, and the Eagles fell to the New York Jets 24-18 on Thursday night. Tebow, competing with Matt Barkley for the No. 3 quarterback job, flashed some of the playmaking skills and maddening inconsistency that have made him such a polarizing player throughout his NFL career. Tebow, who last played in a regular-season game with the Jets in 2012, finished 11 of 17 for 189 yards and added 32 yards rushing on four carries. Chip Kelly must decide whether it's Barkley, who was 4 of 9 for 45 yards and an interception, or Tebow behind Sam B

  • Brady sits after court victory, and Giants top Patriots 12-9

    Updated: 9 hr ago

    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Chris Boswell kicked four field goals and the New York Giants finished off the preseason with a 12-9 victory Thursday over the New England Patriots, who had already won a much larger victory earlier in the day. A federal judge vacated the NFL's four-game suspension of Tom Brady, clearing the Patriots star quarterback for the regular season opener and beyond. Brady was among the many starters not playing for either team in the preseason finale. The Patriots left the offense in the hands of third-stinger Ryan Lindley, who completed 22 of 45 for 253 yards with one interception and a late fumble. Giants backup quarterback Ryan Nassib played all but the final few minutes for New York and was

  • Obarski's late field goal sends Bengals past Colts 9-6

    Updated: 10 hr ago

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Cincinnati's Tom Obarski made his final preseason kick count. Now he'll wait anxiously to see if he's done enough to give veteran Mike Nugent the boot. The rookie from Concordia-St. Paul, a small school in Minnesota, made a 28-yard field goal with 2:49 to go Thursday night, and the Bengals defense kept Indianapolis out of the end zone to hold on for a 9-6 victory in the preseason finale. Cincinnati won three times in four weeks. But to demonstrate how little these results mean, Indianapolis finished 1-3 for its 12th consecutive non-winning preseason — a span in which they've already reached the playoffs 10 times. The game was marred by a fan who was injured at halftime.

He was brought up twice as the 26th man for two doubleheaders before being recalled June 8.

    MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Tim Jennings has agreed to terms with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers four days after being cut by the Chicago Bears. The Bucs announced the signing during their final exhibition game Thursday at Miami. Jennings, 31, missed only six starts in five seasons with the Bears and has 20 career interceptions, including an NFL-high nine in 2012. His release by the Bears was a cost-cutting move, because he had a guaranteed base salary of $4.4 million this year. He had arthroscopic knee surgery in the offseason. ___ AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.
