Miami TE Keller hurt against Texans

Miami TE Keller hurt against Texans

HOUSTON (AP) — Miami tight end Dustin Keller sustained what appeared to be a serious right leg injury in the second quarter against the Houston Texans.

Keller’s leg bent unnaturally when he was tackled on the right knee by D.J. Swearinger on an incomplete pass Saturday night. He immediately grabbed his right knee and was soon carted off the field.

The team didn’t provide any official word on his injury.

Keller spent his first five seasons with the New York Jets before signing with the Dolphins in the offseason. The Lafayette, Ind. native played his college ball at Purdue.

He had one reception for 14 yards on Saturday.

Lawyer: first Penn St. abuse claim settled

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A lawyer says his client is the first to settle a civil claim against Penn State related to the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse case.

Attorney Tom Kline confirmed in an email that the client known as Victim 5 when he testified at Sandusky’s criminal trial has agreed to terms with the university.

The paper says it’s was among 26 settlements expected soon among the 31 young men who have pressed claims over the actions of the university’s former assistant football coach. A Penn State spokesman says the school “continues to make progress on multiple settlements” but isn’t commenting on the newspaper’s report of a multimillion-dollar deal.

Tight race for final spots in Chase

BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) — Greg Biffle has won the last two Sprint Cup races at Michigan. He could use another strong performance this weekend, because his position in the standings is a precarious one.

And he’s not alone. There are four races left before the Chase for the Sprint Cup, with the top 10 drivers qualifying along with two wild cards. Biffle is in ninth place.

Even defending Cup champion Brad Keselowski isn’t secure. He’s in eighth place, but only 12 points separate him from 12th-place Kasey Kahne.
