Gregg Williams' debut with Rams a bust -- and it's only getting tougher

ST. LOUIS -- Gregg Williams' long-delayed debut as St. Louis Rams defensive coordinator was a bust, and it only gets harder from here. For at least a few months, he'll be without standout end Chris Long. The pressure had already been ramped up to keep the score down when Sam Bradford was lost in the preseason, and third-string quarterback Austin Davis could get the start...

Mizzou's QB situation -- thankfully for the Tigers -- is nothing like UCF's

Maty Mauk seemingly has made a smooth transition to being Missouri's full-time starter, but coach Gary Pinkel also has stressed there's a learning curve his quarterback will have to embrace as the season moves along. That's especially true for whoever happens to be under center for Central Florida, which will start its second quarterback in as many games on Saturday when...

Now minus two star players, Rams get back to work

ST. LOUIS -- There were so many shortcomings in the St. Louis Rams' woeful season-opening loss to Minnesota, that the team's best option now is to just move on from it. In Week 2 at Tampa Bay, they will try again to act the part of a franchise on the rise minus a second stalwart. After practice on Wednesday, coach Jeff Fisher told players they had done a good job of getting...

Fisher quashes rumors he benched QB Hill

ST. LOUIS -- Rams coach Jeff Fisher emphasized that quarterback Shaun Hill is still the St. Louis starter, dismissing speculation about why he yanked him at halftime of the team's season-opening blowout loss to Minnesota.

Wacha sharp in return as Cardinals show no mercy to reeling Brewers

MILWAUKEE -- So much happened during the Cardinals' 3-2 victory over the Brewers Thursday night that it was easy to overlook the most important development. There were three run-saving highlight catches in the Cardinals' outfield and two botched plays in the infield. There was Matt Carpenter getting nailed running from second to third by a Matt Holliday grounder that cost...

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Moms really do know what's best. Just ask Missouri receiver Darius White, who in his fifth season playing college football received his first career start in the team's opener last Saturday.

Cardinals and Brewers are moving in opposite directions -- and fast

MILWAUKEE -- If the NL Central race were between the tortoise and the hare, the Cardinals would be the tortoise and the Brewers the hare. As the methodical approach proved victorious in the fairy tale, it's looking like the tortoise will prevail in the NL Central. The Cardinals not only have moved into first place after spending the first five months looking up at the Brewers...

He's eager to learn a new system and play football outside of Houston for the...

Michael Sam lost a numbers game Saturday -- not a political or moral one

Being gay wasn't Michael Sam's problem. Not being Ethan Westbrooks was. Westbrooks is a 6-foot-4, 267-pounder who can play defensive end or tackle, a giant with a Hemi engine who can clog rush lanes or blot out the sun, a rookie who can work the "3" technique or the "5," depending on the circumstance. Same is a 6-2, 261-pound pass-rushing specialist. Which...

Cubs' rookies get the best of Cardinals' most reliable reliever

ST. LOUIS -- On Friday night when the most valuable Cardinal returned after a seven-week absence, the most dependable Cardinal struggled like he hadn't all season. The difficulties of reliever Pat Neshek determined the outcome of the Cubs' 7-2 victory far more than the comeback of Yadier Molina, who went 0 for 4 but experienced no issues with his surgically repaired right...

'Redeemed' Tyron Woodley wants to call the shots for his next bout

ST. LOUIS -- Tyron Woodley isn't quite sure when the UFC will call about his next fight, but he knows what he wants to hear. Something like this: "How would you like to take on Matt Brown in the co-main event before a Johny Hendricks-Robbie Lawler title fight? And if you win, you get your shot at the title." Woodley, in fact, has been calling for such a scenario since...

There are rumblings that Yadi Molina is ready to work in St. Louis

After Yadier Molina tore a ligament in his right thumb July 9, the St. Louis Cardinals were told their star catcher would be out 8-12 weeks and may miss the remainder of the regular season. Molina seemingly ignored the timeline. He's expected to join the Cardinals for Friday night's series opener and possibly play against the visiting Chicago Cubs, much to the delight of...

Wainwright takes loss, is ready to put August behind him

For one inning anyway, Adam Wainwright pitched like Adam Wainwright of the first half. But for the next five innings at Pittsburgh on Wednesday afternoon, he was back in his "grindy" mode, his second-half "funk" or whatever you want to call it. Still, put the six innings together and Wainwright was good enough to record a quality start. But he wasn't good...

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Michael Sam is about to get one last chance to show the St. Louis Rams why he belongs on their 53-man roster. For him -- and everyone else on NFL roster bubbles -- a preseason finale is anything but meaningless. Sam and the Rams visit the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night, the last exhibition for both clubs and the last opportunity for players to state their...
