Jadeveon Clowney Leaves Practice

By Tania Ganguli | ESPN.com

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Houston Texans rookie outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney‘s practice was cut about 45 minutes short on Wednesday when he retreated to the medical tent at the Denver Broncos‘ Dove Valley facility.

Clowney departed practice early after colliding with Broncos tight end Jacob Tamme during a 9-on-7 drill. Clowney sat in the tent for the remainder of the team’s joint practice, but it didn’t appear he was being examined by trainers while he rested.

Texans coach Bill O’Brien said after practice he didn’t know what Clowney’s situation was.

Houston drafted Clowney first overall out of South Carolina in May. He began showing his ability almost immediately in practices and workouts. Clowney had sports hernia surgery in June, but was healthy enough to return to practice a few days into training camp. Periodically, the Texans have given Clowney days off to manage his return.

Wednesday’s issue did not appear to be related to his sports hernia surgery as Clowney’s gait did not seem affected.

Sydney Colson Named Women’s Basketball Video Coordinator

COLLEGE STATION- Sydney Colson, the starting point guard of Texas A&M’s 2011 National Championship team, was named women’s basketball video coordinator on Wednesday. Colson had served as a graduate assistant with squad since January 2014.

Colson has been a part of A&M’s three most successful NCAA Tournament runs, helping the Aggies to the 2008 Elite Eight and 2011 National Championship as a player, and was on the bench as a graduate assistant for A&M’s run to the Elite Eight in 2014.

“Coaching becomes fun when you have a chance to bring back young people who helped you win championships and get them started in coaching,” said Texas A&M head coach Gary Blair. “Sydney Colson was the heart and soul of our team for four years, and one of the most popular players ever at Texas A&M. This is a young lady who can do so many things in life.”

“I am extremely excited to be back at Texas A&M with Coach Blair, who has given me so many opportunities to be successful,” said Colson. “This is yet another great opportunity to add to the list. The coaching staff is tremendous and the team is hungry for success this year. Luckily, I’m along for the ride.”

Colson returned to A&M as a graduate assistant in January 2014, helping the squad to 15 wins in the 20 games after her arrival, and a trip to the NCAA Elite Eight. She fills the full-time position vacated by Nick Grant, who accepted an assistant coaching job at San Diego State.

A standout point guard herself, Colson’s presence boosted the play of then-sophomore point guard Jordan Jones, who averaged 8.4 assists after Colson’s arrival. Jones went on to set the A&M single-season assist record and was named SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Year.

As a player, Colson had her best season during her senior year, the 2010-11 National Championship season. She led the conference and ranked in the top 10 nationally with 6.1 assists per game. She finished the season with 221 assists, which ranks third on A&M’s single-season assists chart. She still ranks fourth all-time in A&M’s career assists (504) and steals (255). She was an honorable mention All-America and all-conference selection her senior year.

Colson, a Houston, Texas native, finished her four-year career with 853 points, 504 assists and 255 steals over 138 games. She posted over 100 assists in each of her final three seasons, which were her three seasons as the Aggies’ starting point guard. While playing at A&M, her teams went an astounding 115-29.

Since graduating, Colson played for the New York Liberty in the WNBA, and played professionally in Poland.


They Said It:

“Sydney Colson returning to the sidelines for Texas A&M [is] a huge get for Gary Blair. She was a phenomenal leader and led them to a national championship. [She has] great enthusiasm. Not only that, the fans love that kid. You talk about firing the team up? She fired the fans up. This is a great get for Texas A&M.”
-SEC TV Analyst and Former Auburn Coach Nell Fortner on Colson’s addition in January

“Sydney Colson, who joined the staff as a graduate assistant in January, has really played a key role…[she’s] done a good job on this coaching staff.”
-ESPN’s Pam Ward on Colson’s impact during the NCAA Tournament

Stros Beat Yanks With 9th Inning Homer

NEW YORK (AP) _ Chris Carter snapped a ninth-inning tie with a colossal
three-run homer, extending his second-half power surge and sending the Houston
Astros to a 7-4 victory over the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.

Brian McCann hit a two-run homer and Martin Prado had three hits for the
Yankees, who wasted their first chance to make up ground during a six-game
homestand against a pair of teams with losing records in Houston and the White
Sox.

David Robertson (1-4) walked consecutive batters and threw seven straight balls
before Carter launched a 3-0 pitch into the raised concrete bleachers in left
field for his 30th home run.

The reigning AL player of the week came in leading the league with 10 long
balls since the All-Star break. Carter had struck out in his previous four
at-bats in the game.

for his 14th save.

Braxton Miller Out for Season

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is out for the season after sustaining a right shoulder injury during Monday’s practice, a source told ESPN’s Brett McMurphy.

Miller had an MRI on his throwing shoulder Tuesday morning, revealing the season-ending injury.

Widely tabbed as a Heisman Trophy contender this preseason, Miller suffered the injury during a noncontact portion of practice, just hours after the senior declared himself 100 percent healthy following offseason surgery to the shoulder. He was taken off the field under medical supervision, a source told ESPN on Monday.

Miller threw for 2,094 yards and 24 touchdowns and ran for 12 more scores in leading the Buckeyes to the Discover Orange Bowl last season.

Ranked fifth in the preseason Associated Press poll released Sunday, Ohio State is expected to be in the national title conversation.

The reigning two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, Miller first hurt the shoulder in the Orange Bowl. He had surgery that prevented him from contact in spring practice and was held out of several practices and scrimmages in August.

Redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett is expected to be the starter when the Buckeyes open the season Aug. 30 against Navy in Baltimore. Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said Saturday that redshirt sophomore Cardale Jones is the third-team quarterback.

Miller is one of the Big Ten’s most decorated quarterbacks, and the falloff in experience to Barrett and Jones is huge.

Starting as a freshman, Miller has thrown 666 passes in his glittering three-year career. Barrett has never played in a game, and Jones has thrown only two passes.

Miller has run for 32 touchdowns and passed for 52, putting him in reach of many of Ohio State’s career records for quarterbacks. Jones has run for one touchdown and has never thrown for one.

Barrett was an acclaimed recruit out of Wichita Falls, Texas, who watched with Jones last year as Miller took most of the snaps in the Buckeyes’ 12-2 season. When Miller was hurt for most of the San Diego State, California and Florida A&Mgames with a sprained knee, senior Kenny Guiton had big games while leading Ohio State to victories.

But Guiton graduated, and the Buckeyes might have to adapt on the fly. Making that even more difficult is that Ohio State is without four of its five starting offensive linemen, its leading receiver (Corey Brown) and 1,500-yard rusher Carlos Hyde from last year’s team.

Miller missed most of his senior season at high school in Huber Heights, Ohio, and has frequently been sidelined with injuries at Ohio State. As a freshman, he sprained an ankle against Nebraska – a game in which the Buckeyes built a big lead but blew it — but was able to play in subsequent games.

Two years ago, he missed time during the game at Michigan State when he fell into an equipment case on the sideline and later in the game hyperextended his left knee. He was hit hard by Purdue‘s Josh Johnson later in the season and missed the rest of that game, with Guiton leading a stirring march in the final minute for a touchdown and the tying two-point conversion. The Buckeyes won in overtime.

Last season, Miller sprained a knee early against San Diego State and missed the rest of that game and the next two, with Guiton filling in.

Then Miller partially tore the labrum in his right shoulder on the first possession againstClemson in the Orange Bowl. He played the rest of the game. When the injury was discovered later, he had surgery in February.

Ohio State said at the time that Miller had “minor, outpatient surgery.” But he has had problems with the shoulder since.

Still, he has repeatedly said he would be ready to go in the opener and did so again between practices Monday. His workload had been reduced to avoid any ongoing soreness in the arm.

Miller has a $1 million total disability policy that he could collect if he never plays football again, a source told ESPN. That premium has been paid for by Ohio State, according to the source, but Miller does not have loss of value insurance that would cover him if he significantly slipped in the NFL draft.

Manziel Flipped Off Redskins Sideline

LANDOVER, Md. – Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel extended his middle finger toward the Washington Redskins bench after a third-quarter incompletion during Monday night’s 24-23 preseason loss.

Manziel flipped the bird toward the Redskins after the play that unfolded in front of Washington’s bench. Manziel said he had “words exchanged” with the Redskins and that he should have been smarter.

“I felt like I did a good job of holding my composure throughout the night, and you have a lapse of judgment and slip up,” Manziel said.

Asked in his postgame news conference if he thought it was wrong, Manziel smiled before laughing.

“I mean, I didn’t think it was positive,” Manziel said, before adding he couldn’t blame it on distractions, repeating he had simply lost his composure.

Manziel was not penalized, though he could have been for unsportsmanlike conduct or taunting.

The NFL no doubt will review the tape, and Manziel will be subject to an $11,025 fine. He can appeal his first fine, and it can be limited to 25 percent of a weekly check of close to $6,200.

“It did not sit well,” Browns coach Mike Pettine said. “I was informed of it after the game and it’s disappointing. Because what we talk about is being poised and being focused — that you have to be able to maintain your poise.”

The gesture occurred with 2:28 left in the third quarter.

“That’s a big part of all football players, especially the quarterback, that we have to keep our composure,” Pettine said. “So that’s something that we’ll obviously address with him.”

On a second-and-7 play, Manziel dropped back, rolled left to escape the rush and threw across his body just before reaching the sidelines. The pass to Jonathan Krause fell incomplete.

Manziel may have heard something from the home bench, because as he trotted back to the huddle in the nationally televised game he extended his middle finger over his right shoulder toward the bench.

Brian Hoyer, who is competing with Manziel for the starting quarterback job, didn’t seem impressed by the gesture.

“You’ve got to know the cameras are always on you,” Hoyer said.

It wouldn’t have been the first time Manziel was mocked by the Redskins.

Linebacker Brian Orakpo, who called the middle-finger gesture “hilarious,” celebrated a teammate’s sack of the quarterback in the first quarter by giving Manziel’s Drake/money gesture, for which he is well known.

After forcing the Browns to punt with Manziel at quarterback, Orakpo stopped near the yard marker in front of the Redskins sideline and again gave the money sign.

Manziel had struggled throughout the game — going 5-for-13 for 49 yards and one sack before the gesture.

He completed the drive after the gesture with a touchdown that came on a short drop pass that Dion Lewis ran into the end zone.

“I should have been smarter,” Manziel said. “The cameras were solidly on me. I need to be smarter about that.”

Information from ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter was used in this report.

Austin Morgan Named Volunteer Assistant Coach

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas A&M Baseball added Austin Morgan to the staff as a volunteer assistant coach, head coach Rob Childress announced on Monday.

“We’re excited about the addition of Austin to our coaching staff,” Childress said. “He had a great playing career at Blinn College and College of Charleston. He learned a lot from Monte Lee at Charleston for two years as a player and one year as a student assistant and he’s done a great job the last two years at East Carolina, working with their catchers. As well as on-field instruction, I think he’ll do an outstanding job helping us with our on-campus recruiting. We’re very fortunate to add someone with his experience to the staff.”

Morgan, who spent the last two seasons as a volunteer assistant at East Carolina, replaces Austin Knight who accepted a coaching job at Northeast Texas Community College.

“I feel blessed to be asked to be a part of this coaching staff and the A&M family,” Morgan said. “This is a very exciting time. I’ve been very familiar with the A&M program for a long time and it’s something I’m proud to be a part of. Fall workouts can’t start soon enough. We’re ready to get things going.”

During his two seasons at ECU, Morgan worked directly with the catchers and assisting Ben Sanderson as a hitting instructor. Last season, he mentored Pirates’ catcher Travis Watkins to Conference USA All-Freshman recognition.

Morgan, a Houston native, joined the Pirates’ staff after spending two years as the head coach of the Diamond Devils Baseball Summer Program, located in Mt. Pleasant, S.C.

Prior to working with the Diamond Devils, Morgan was a student assistant coach at the College of Charleston for one season. The Cougars received an at-large bid and No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament advancing to the 2010 Myrtle Beach Regional Championship Game before falling to No. 4 national seed Coastal Carolina, 11-10. The Cougars ended the season ranked 27th in the final National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association poll.

As a member of Monte Lee’s staff, he worked with the Cougars’ catchers and assisted with hitting instruction. His 2010 squad led the Southern Conference in 10 offensive categories and ranked among the national leaders in home runs (5th/105), scoring (7th/9.1), runs (8th/576), doubles (9th/160), walks (14th/298), slugging percentage (15th/.539) and hits (21st/732).

A two-year letterman at College of Charleston, Morgan helped the Cougars to 74 wins and a pair of Southern Conference Tournament appearances from 2008-09. He appeared in 114 games (112 starts) over two seasons batting .297 (110-for-372) with eight home runs, 32 doubles and 82 RBI. As a senior, he helped Charleston to a 35-22 record making 56 starts behind the plate. Morgan batted .292 with five homers and 45 RBI during the year.

Morgan helped the Cougars to a 39-20 ledger batting .301 with 43 runs, 14 doubles, three home runs and 37 RBI in 2008, his junior year.

A two-year standout under Coach Brian Roper at Blinn College, Morgan earned ABCA Gold Glove honors in 2007. He helped Blinn to a 36-21 mark as a freshman and 37-19 record as a sophomore.

Morgan was a standout at Cinco Ranch High School in Katy, Texas, earning all-district honors and team MVP recognition as a senior. He earned all-state honors as the Cougars’ quarterback in 2005.

Morgan earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration from the College of Charleston in 2010.

Jake Matthews Moves to LT

By Vaughn McClure | ESPN.com

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – Atlanta Falcons rookie Jake Matthews officially made the switch from right to left tackle during Monday’s practice.

The move was expected after the Falcons lost starting left tackle Sam Baker to a season-ending patellar tendon tear.

The Falcons drafted Matthews with the sixth overall pick out of Texas A&M to be the team’s left tackle of the future. He played left tackle last year with the Aggies.

Matthews was asked after Monday’s practice if there is a significant adjustment from right to left.

“Yes, the stagger changes,” he said. “You go for a long time used to bracing a guy with one leg back. And now you’ve got to flip it around. It’s like almost going from writing with your right hand to your left hand. But I did it in college. I feel pretty comfortable on both sides.”

Said coach Mike Smith: “I don’t think he’ll blink. We’re not.”

Lamar Holmes moved into the first-team right tackle spot vacated by Matthews.

The Falcons officially placed Baker on injured reserve Monday and signed veteran offensive tackle Pat McQuistan, who last played with Tennessee. McQuistan has 11 career starts and played eight previous seasons with the Cowboys, Saints, Dolphins, Cardinals, and Titans.

Hill Named Aggie Starting Quarterback

COLLEGE STATION—Texas A&M head football coach Kevin Sumlin announced today that sophomore quarterback Kenny Hill will be the Aggies’ starting quarterback for the season opener against South Carolina, Thursday, Aug. 28 in Columbia, South Carolina. The game will be first collegiate football game televised nationally by the SEC Network with kickoff set for 5:01 p.m. central (6:01 eastern).

“The competition was close and that competition will continue to help us improve,” Sumlin said. “I have talked to both quarterbacks as well as the team and we will prepare with Kenny getting the first-team reps.”

Hill played in four games for Texas A&M in 2013 as a true freshman quarterback. He completed 16-of-22 passes for 183 yards and one touchdown. He also rushed for 37 yards on seven carries.

Hill came to Texas A&M from Southlake Carroll High School where he was named the Texas Gatorade Player of the Year and Class 5A Offensive Player of the Year throwing for 2,291 yards and 20 touchdowns to go along with 905 yards rushing on 102 carries and 22 touchdowns in 2012.

The other scholarship quarterback competing for the starting job is true freshman Kyle Allen from Scottsdale, Arizona. Allen was the top-rated quarterback prospect in the country and enrolled at Texas A&M in January and went through spring drills as well as summer workouts.

Aggies Complete Exhibition Match at UCLA

LOS ANGELES, California – The No. 9 Texas A&M Aggies dropped a 3-1 decision against the No. 1 UCLA Bruins in an exhibition match at the North Athletic Field on a Friday evening where both squads were testing new players and player combinations throughout the contest.

The Aggies posted their lone marker of the game in the 69th minute. Facing a 2-0 deficit, Allie Bailey put in a yeoman’s effort muscling through the Bruins’ defense and slotting a pass to Shea Groom who beat UCLA netminder Arielle Schecthman to the right.

The Maroon and White were trailing 2-1 and had a chance to knot the game in the 71st minute when Grace Wright lobbed a pass over the defense and into the penalty box, from 30 yards out, to the feet of Liz Keester. In an enviable position, unmarked 12 yards out, Keester was unable to get the ball past Schechtman with the one-on-one opportunity.

With both teams playing their full complement of field starters in the first 30-minute period, the squads played to a 0-0 draw. The defenses put on a clinic holding the opposing offenses to just three shots (UCLA 2; Texas A&M 1).

The Bruins scored a pair of goals in the second 30-minute period.  With the Aggies putting all four of their freshmen on the pitch, UCLA broke the scoring seal in the 48th minute of action when Megan Oyster scored with assists from Sam Mewis and Lauren Kaskie. The Bruins added a goal in the 55th minute when Kodi Lavrusky used assists from Darian Jenkins and Taylor Smith to give UCLA a 2-0.

The last goal of the contest came in the 84th minute as UCLA was awarded a penalty kick and Mewis put the ball in the right side-netting for the 3-1 advantage.

Texas A&M starts the regular-season on Friday when the Aggies host the Dayton Flyers in a 7 pm contest at Ellis Field.
