CFP expansion proposal on table this week

UNDATED (AP) — The College Football Playoff management committee is scheduled to meet Wednesday. The committee will discuss the feedback members have received from campuses since a 12-team expansion plan was unveiled in June.

The 10 major college football conference commissioners and Notre Dame’s athletic director get together this week and plan to reconvene early next week in Chicago. The second meeting will include university presidents who make up the CFP’s board of managers.

A four-person subcommittee has come up with was a 12-team format that would include six conference champions and six at-large teams. Games would be played both on campus and at bowl sites.

Also in college football:

— Florida coach Dan Mullen says quarterback Anthony Richardson will “probably do a little bit more at practice” this week before the 11th-ranked Gators host Tennessee. Richardson was held out of Saturday’s 31-29 loss to Alabama as a precaution after the redshirt freshman strained his right hamstring near the end of an 80-yard run the previous week.


Perez hits 46th HR, Royals whip Indians

CLEVELAND (AP) — Today’s major league schedule has begun with the Kansas City Royals’ 7-2 win at Cleveland in Game 1 of a doubleheader.

Salvador Perez slammed his 46th home run of the year, breaking Johnny Bench’s record among players who appeared in at least 75% of his team’s games at catcher.

Perez also moved into a tie for the major league lead in homers with Toronto’s Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Perez leads the majors with 115 RBIs.

Hunter Dozier and Andrew Benintendi also hit two-run homers to support Brady Singer, who limited the Indians to two runs over seven innings.


Yankees activate Severino

UNDATED (AP) — Pitcher Luis Severino has been activated by the New York Yankees and is in position to make his first major league appearance in nearly two years. Yankees manager Aaron Boone says he plans to use Severino out of the bullpen.

The 27-year-old right-hander hasn’t pitched in the majors since undergoing Tommy John surgery before last season.

The two-time All-Star and 19-game winner in 2018 was limited by shoulder soreness to three appearances in 2019.

Also in the majors:

— Outfielder-turned-reliever Anthony Gose has been called up from the minors by the Indians, this time as a hard-throwing lefty reliever. The 31-year-old Gose last played in the majors in 2016 with Detroit. Gose walked 28 in 33 innings for Triple-A Columbus this year, but he also struck out 49 while consistently throwing in the upper 90s and reaching 100 mph.


Landry is week-to-week

UNDATED (AP) — Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry could miss multiple games after spraining his knee in Sunday’s win over Houston.

Landry hurt his MCL while being tackled at the end of a 9-yard completion on Cleveland’s second offensive play.

Coach Kevin Stefanski said Landry will be “week to week” but provided no other specifics on a timeline for his return.

Elsewhere in the NFL:

— The Colts won’t know until later this week whether quarterback Carson Went will play at Tennessee after spraining both ankles in Sunday’s loss to the Rams. Colts coach Frank Reich (ryk) says he does not yet have a timeline for a return. Wentz hurt his left ankle early in the game and injured his right ankle midway through the fourth quarter, causing him to miss the rest of the game. Jacob Eason is expected to make his first NFL start if Wentz can’t go against the Titans.

— Raiders quarterback Derek Carr underwent tests on his injured right ankle, but coach Jon Gruden expects him to be able to play this Sunday against Miami. Carr got hurt after throwing a TD pass to Foster Moreau in the third quarter of Sunday’s 26-17 victory over the Steelers. After being down on the turf for a bit, Carr got taped up in the medical tent and didn’t miss a play.

— Broncos coach Vic Fangio wouldn’t confirm reports Monday that fourth-year inside linebacker Josey Jewell is out for the season with a torn pectoral muscle. Fangio said they team is awaiting a final prognosis, but teammates were talking as though they’d be without their defensive play-caller for some time. Denver also lost Pro Bowl outside linebacker Bradley Chubb on Sunday when he aggravated a right ankle injury that’s been bothering him for a month.

— Houston quarterback Tyrod Taylor is day to day with a hamstring injury as the Texans face a quick turnaround with a Thursday night game against Carolina. If Taylor can’t play, Deshaun Watson won’t be an option. Coach David Culley says Watson will be inactive for Thursday’s game just as he has been for the first two games.


Miami waiting to see status of QB King’s injured shoulder

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Miami quarterback D’Eriq King has a shoulder injury that will need further evaluation this week in the latest blow to the reeling Hurricanes. Coach Manny Diaz says King will meet with doctors again on Tuesday.

The Hurricanes fell out of the AP Top 25 on Sunday for the first time this season. They play lower-division Central Connecticut State on Saturday before opening Atlantic Coast Conference play against Virginia on Sept. 30.


Coyotes submit proposal to build arena in Tempe

UNDATED (AP) — The Arizona Coyotes have proposed a $1.7 billion development in Tempe that will include a hockey arena. Renderings by the Coyotes include proposed restaurants, shops and apartments on a 46-acre tract of land.

The team says the arena would be funded by private investors but would seek city sales tax revenues to help pay for $200 million in additional costs, including infrastructure work.

Elsewhere in the NHL:

— Longtime Devils center Travis Zajac has signed a one-day contract with the team so he could retire as a member of the organization where he spent all but 27 games of his 15-year career. The 36-year-old Zajac plans to remain with the Devils in a number of roles on and off the ice. Zajac provided 203 goals and 552 points in 1,037 career regular-season games, including his short stint with the Islanders last spring.
