Ruffing Named Second-Straight PAC Offensive Player Of The Week
Washington and Jefferson running back Ryan Ruffing has been honored as the President's Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week after scoring five touchdowns on Saturday. Ruffing had 239 yards on the ground in W&J's 56-21 win over Westminster this weekend. His touchdown total through the first two weeks of the season leads the nation. Ruffing and the Presidents begin conference play this Saturday when they host Carnegie Mellon.

Adrian Peterson Issues Statement After Reinstatement To Team
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Adrian Peterson has issued a statement after being charged with child abuse and says he is "sorry about the hurt I have brought to my child." Peterson issued his statement on Monday a few hours after the Minnesota Vikings reinstated him to the team. Peterson was charged last weekend after he struck his 4-year-old son with a tree branch as a form of discipline earlier this summer. Peterson says he has met with a psychologist and "I have to live with the fact that when I disciplined my son the way I was disciplined as a child, I caused an injury that I never intended or thought would happen." Peterson says he's not perfect, but also says "without a doubt I am not a child abuser."

NFL Adds Domestic Violence Experts As Advisers
NEW YORK (AP) - The NFL says three experts in domestic violence will serve as senior advisers to the league. Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to teams Monday announcing that Lisa Friel, Jane Randel and Rita Smith will "help lead and shape the NFL's policies and programs relating to domestic violence and sexual assault." Friel was the head of the Sex Crimes Prosecution Unit in the New York County District Attorney's Office for more than a decade. Randel is the co-founder of No More, a campaign against domestic violence and sexual assault. Smith is the former executive director of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Goodell has been under heavy criticism for his handling of the domestic abuse case involving star running back Ray Rice.


Bucs Turn Triple Play, Beat Cubs
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Josh Harrison started Pittsburgh's first triple play at home in 21 years and hit a tying two-run double in a six-run fifth inning Sunday that helped the Pirates rally past the Chicago Cubs 7-3. Edinson Volquez (12-7) improved to 4-0 in his last 10 starts for the Pirates, who began the day with a 1 1/2-game lead over Milwaukee for the NL's second wild card. Pittsburgh improved to 14-5 against Chicago this year, winning all six series, and eliminated the Cubs from playoff contention. Chicago has not won the World Series since 1908 and hasn't even reached the postseason since 2008. Chicago led 3-0 and put runners on first and second in the fourth when Matt Szczur grounded to third. Harrison started an around-the-horn 5-4-3 triple play, throwing to second baseman Neil Walker, who relayed to first baseman Andrew Lambo.

Hardy Benched
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera decided to bench defensive end Greg Hardy before their game against Detroit. Rivera defended his late decision to make Hardy inactive by saying the "climate has changed" in the NFL and the team "has to get this right." Hardy was convicted in July of assault on a female and communicating threats, a ruling that he's appealing. Rivera said he wouldn't rule out Hardy playing this season but refused to put a timetable on that decision.

Griffin, Jackson Injured
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - Washington lost quarterback Robert Griffin III and receiver DeSean Jackson in yesterday's 41-10 rout of Jacksonville yesterday. RG III was knocked out of the game with a dislocated left ankle in the first quarter and was carted from the field. Jackson suffered a dislocated shoulder.

Keselowski Takes Opening Chase Race
JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — Brad Keselowski has won the opening race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, a victory that automatically advances him into the second round. Keselowski used a three-wide pass of Kyle Larson and Kevin Harvick to snatch the lead away with 15 laps remaining at Chicagoland Speedway. As Larson and Harvick raced door-to-door, Keselowski drove through the middle to take the lead. A caution with 10 laps remaining set up one final restart, and Keselowski easily pulled away for the win. The Chase this year will eliminate four drivers after every third race, and a win guarantees a driver an automatic berth into the next round. Keselowski, who won last week at Richmond and has a Sprint Cup-leading five wins this season, was the top seed in the Chase.

Horschel Wins FedEx Cup
ATLANTA (AP) - Billy Horschel capped off the best three weeks of his career by winning the FedEx Cup and a $10 million bonus. He closed with a 2-under 68 for a three-shot victory over Jim Furyk and Rory McIlroy in the Tour Championship and the biggest Sunday payoff in golf. Horschel's career earnings were $4.5 million coming into the year.

Close Call For Greg Norman
ATLANTA (AP) - Greg Norman is recovering from a chain saw accident that nearly cost him his left hand.
The Hall of Fame golfer and entrepreneur was cutting back trees in his South Florida home when the weight of a branch pulled his left hand toward the chain saw. He said the blade hit him just below where a person would be wearing a wrist watch. Norman said doctors told him it missed his artery by a fraction of an inch.
