Trevon Hill dismissed from Virginia Tech football team
09/23/2018 11:56am

One day after one of the most shocking losses in program history, Virginia Tech was dealt another blow when the school announced defensive end Trevon Hill had been dismissed from the team. Hill, who led the Hokies with 3.5 sacks this season, was dismissed for "not upholding the high standards we have for our student-athletes," head coach Justin Fuente said in a statement. Hill, a junior from Virginia Beach, was one of the Hokies' most effective defenders and one of just four returning starters from last season. He'd compiled 11 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss and three QB hurries through three games, and he had 20 tackles for loss in his career. The dismissal comes less than 24 hours after Old Dominion pulled off a massive upset of the 13th-ranked Hokies. ODU was a 29-point underdog entering play but won by two touchdowns, exposing some significant weaknesses on Virginia Tech's defense. With Hill's dismissal, the Hokies' remaining options for an edge rusher...

The Earl Thomas dilemma: NFL execs explore what's next
09/23/2018 11:26am

SEATTLE -- No Seattle Seahawks story from 2017 created bigger waves than when six-time Pro Bowl free safety Earl Thomas approached Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett following a Christmas Eve game. "If y'all have the chance, come get me," Thomas told Garrett at the time. Thomas' frustration with his contract situation has only grown from there, and the story is back on center stage with the 1-1 Cowboys visiting the 0-2 Seahawks in Week 3. In a perfect world, Thomas would play out the final year of his $40 million contract, the Seahawks would reward him with an even richer extension and together they would celebrate many more productive years together. That could still happen, but the Seahawks' world is not as perfect as it seemed a couple years ago. At best, this is a team in transition. At worst, Seattle is plummeting toward the NFC basement. Where the Seahawks actually fit into the league hierarchy could help them decide...

Jags RB Leonard Fournette not playing against Titans
09/23/2018 8:26am

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette is not expected to play in Sunday's game against the Titans, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Fournette was listed as questionable for Week 3 after missing last week's win over the Patriots with a hamstring injury. Sources had indicated on Saturday night that Fournette was expected back against Tennessee, but the Jaguars have decided to play it safe with the second-year player. Backup running back T.J. Yeldon is also listed as questionable because of an ankle injury, but he is expected to play. "We've been playing a lot of tough games," coach Doug Marrone said Friday. "Players are doing the best job they can to get themselves ready to go, but we played a home opener in New York. We played a home opener here. Now we've got a divisional opponent. "When you look at it, a lot of teams are going through the same thing, just trying to keep everybody as healthy as they possibly can."...
