Attorneys for Jordan McNair's family receive information from investigation
09/21/2018 8:16pm

Attorneys for the family of Jordan McNair received information about the investigation into the former Terrapins offensive lineman's death late Thursday night, just hours before a board meeting to discuss the inquiry, a spokesperson for the board confirmed. The University System of Maryland board of regents sent information to the attorneys following a letter sent earlier Thursday by law firm Murphy, Falcon & Murphy saying the family had not been updated on the status of the report. McNair's parents were looking for a chance to redact any private health information prior to the report's public release, but decided against doing that once they had reviewed it, Hassan Murphy, a managing partner at the law firm, said Friday. "Jordan McNair's family has had an opportunity to review the Walters report following our receipt of the documents late last night," Murphy wrote in an email to the office of the attorney general on Friday afternoon.

09/21/2018 6:46pm

Addison Russell was placed on administrative leave by Major League Baseball on Friday after his ex-wife opened up about abuse allegations against the Chicago Cubs shortstop in a blog post this week. Melisa Reidy-Russell wrote that she suffered physical and emotional abuse throughout their two-year marriage and that the mistreatment severely affected her.

"We are hopeful that this new information will allow us to complete the investigation as promptly as possible." Previous allegations by a friend of Reidy-Russell triggered an MLB investigation into Russell last year that remains open. "The first time I was physically mistreated by my spouse, I was in shock," Reidy-Russell wrote. "I couldn't wrap my head around what just happened ... Why did he get so...

The changes to the Tour Championship are ... 'weird'
09/21/2018 8:16pm

ATLANTA -- He had just won $10 million, but Justin Thomas looked like a guy who set the bag of cash down somewhere and couldn't locate it. Having captured golf's ultimate prize, he was annoyed because he didn't secure the smaller one that was also at stake that day. Even today, Thomas laments finishing second at last year's Tour Championship to Xander Schauffele, having missed an 18th-hole birdie opportunity that would have forced a playoff. "It still bothers me,'' he said, even though Thomas still walked away from East Lake with the $10 million bonus that goes to the winner of the yearlong points competition on the PGA Tour, part of a player-of-the-year season. And that is something that won't happen in the future. After years of conjecture and debate, and with dozens upon dozens of ideas put forth, the PGA Tour unveiled a new plan to begin next year. It essentially wipes out the Tour Championship as we know it...
