Luck headed to IR but ‘excited’ for his future

2:37 PM ET The Indianapolis Colts are placing quarterback Andrew Luck on injured reserve, the team announced Thursday. Luck has not played this season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum on Jan. 15. Luck told the team’s website that he is optimistic about his future. “I wish I was better and 100 percent this season, but that’s not the case,” Luck said. “I know I’ll be better from this. I know I’ll be a better quarterback, teammate, person and player from this, and I’m excited for the future.” Luck sought more opinions this week on why his shoulder is not getting better two weeks after the team gave him a cortisone shot to help with soreness. Colts general manager Chris Ballard said Thursday the team has not heard from any d...

The Eternal Sunshine of Steven Stamkos

1:51 PM ET Greg WyshynskiESPN The question haunts Steven Stamkos. Especially in the good times, like now, when the 27-year-old Tampa Bay Lightning captain is leading the NHL with 24 points in 13 games and assaulting the record book along with linemate Nikita Kucherov. What’s going to happen this time? Will it be like in November 2013, when he had 14 goals and 9 assists in his first 17 games before being stretchered out of Boston’s TD Garden with a broken tibia, suffered in a collision with the goal post? Will it be like in April 2016, when a 36-goal campaign was derailed by a blood clot near his right collarbone, requiring surgery that kept him out until Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals? Will it be like in November 2016, when he had 20 points in 17 games before tearing u...

O.J. Simpson Responds to Caitlyn Jenner Saying She Knew He Was Guilty

O.J. Simpson If Bruce Jenner Wants to Be an Old Woman … Good for Her!!! 11/2/2017 10:31 AM PDT O.J. Simpson‘s taking a transphobic shot at Caitlyn Jenner for her claim she and Kris Jenner knew damn well O.J. killed Nicole and Ron Goldman. Simpson was out in Las Vegas when a photog asked him about Caitlyn’s recent comments. At first, he said he’s never met Caitlyn and claims he barely knew Bruce, despite the fact they vacationed together. Then he started jabbing. Watch … O.J. seems to think his comment is lighthearted, or even a joke. We’re guessing Caitlyn won’t be laughing about it, and we’re sure, after seeing this … there’s bad blood between the old friends. Btw, O.J. also makes it clear he’s loving the Vegas life.

Tyrese showed up at the downtown L.A. Courthouse for the custody case that has been going on for more than a week.

Image copyright AFP Image caption Abdelkader Merah went on trial at the start of October The brother of the French jihadist who murdered seven people in Toulouse, including three Jewish children, has been jailed for 20 years. A court in Paris found Abdelkader Merah guilty of terrorist offences. But he was cleared of having a direct role in the 2012 attacks, in which his younger sibling, Mohamed Merah, shot three soldiers and then three children and a teacher at a Jewish school. The court also jailed a second suspect, Fettah Malki, 34, for 14 years. The high-profile trial, which has been held amid tight security, began last month. Prosecutors had asked for life imprisonment for Abdelkader Merah and 20 years for Fettah Malki.

Can Northam Hold Off Gillespie’s Surge in Virginia?

If the Democrats’ strategy for winning the governor’s race in Virginia is to convince people that Ralph Northam can lose, they are doing a really good job. I am worried they are right. My inbox has been flooded with increasingly hysterical messages warning that the race is tight — messages that were meant as a hedge against complacency when it wasn’t. This race was supposed to be a relatively easy win for Northam. Remember that Virginia is an increasingly blue state; Northam is cut from the same moderate Democratic cloth that Virginians have favored recently; lobbyist Ed Gillespie faced a fractured Republican Party to mend and the plunging fortunes of President Trump to defend. Let’s try to understand why Gillespie now seems to be closing the gap, down to five points in the latest Washingt...
