Rick Down is out as the Yankees' hitting coach, the first move in what figures to be a tumultuous offseason for a team that came within two wins of the World Series title. Down was told he will not be asked to return next season, a Yankees official said on condition of anonymity.
President Bush signed legislation awarding Congress' highest honor to Hall of Fame baseball player Jackie Robinson more than half a century after the former Brooklyn Dodger broke major league baseball's color barrier. Congress voted to award a Congressional Gold Medal to Robinson earlier this month, recognizing his achievements in sports, civil rights and business.
Bears running back Anthony Thomas says he's fully recovered from a foot injury that sidelined him for two games and he expects to be in the lineup this Sunday. Thomas practiced on Wednesday for the first time since injuring the foot two weeks ago in a 20-13 loss at New Orleans.
Marques Tuiasosopo will start at quarterback for the Raiders on Sunday at Detroit in place of injured Rich Gannon. Gannon, the reigning NFL MVP, was listed as doubtful with a shoulder injury. The Raiders still haven't said how severely the 37-year-old Gannon is hurt. Gannon was injured in the Raiders' 17-10 loss to Kansas City on Oct. 20 and hasn't thrown a pass since.
