Royals lose in the bottom of the 10th

The Royals were embarrassed by the Indians 15-4 on Friday night. A day later, on Saturday night, they were much better but still couldn't get the win.

The Royals took the Indians to ten innings before they hit a home run to lead off the 10th ending the game.

They've now lost four of five games and two series in a row.

Chiefs getting back to work

The Kansas City Chiefs are getting back to work on Sunday afternoon. They had the day off on Saturday after Friday night's 20-17 preseason loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The only big injury to come out of the game was to LB Cameron Sheffield, whose condition is better after suffering a neck injury. That's two straight weeks the Chiefs have had a player carted off with a neck/head injury.

The Chiefs have a short week playing Green Bay on Thursday. That means they'll have about 11 days before the season opener against the Chargers on Monday Night Football Sept. 13.

Derrick Washington situation continues on

Mizzou RB Derrick Washington has yet to be charged in allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman in June.

The timing of Washington's suspension -- it happened last week -- suggests that there was a recent development causing Gary Pinkel to suspend him.

[A] source close to the alleged victim told the Tribune that the prosecutor’s office recently gave Washington the choice to plead to a lesser charge or go to trial for the felony charge. That development is a possible explanation for why Pinkel suspended Washington on Thursday.
