In the NFL, whilst one of 2014's best offensive players has been ruled out for the entire 2015 season, the Seattle Seahawks have been handed an ultimatum by one of the league's best defensive talents.
Elsewhere, in the NBA, the league's rookies have had their say on a host of topics courtesy of the annual rookie survey. And, in baseball, the Chiefs continued to impress with yet another win last night.

We begin in the NFL where it looks like the Seattle Seahawks could be waiting a while for star safety, Kam Chancellor, to report to the team.
Having held out of camp for 20 days already, racking up over $600,000 in fines in the process, Chancellor's agent has made it clear he won't return until his contract demands have been met. With Seattle unwilling to enter negotiations the standoff could continue into the regular season.
"He will not report without his contract being addressed this season. The team and I have been in contact, but we haven’t been able to agree on any compromise,” Alvin Keels, Chancellor's agent, explained.
Elsewhere in the league, the Carolina Panthers are set to be without second-year wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin for the entire 2015 season.
Cam Newton's number one target suffered a torn ACL yesterday during non-contact drills.
Across to the NBA, and the results of the annual rookie survey are in.
Third overall pick Jahlil Okafor was tipped to be the Rookie of the Year, whilst Joseph Young, selected 43rd overall by the Indiana Pacers, was seen as the steal of the draft.
And finally, in baseball, the Kansas City Royals extended their winning streak to five games with a 4-3 win over the Cincinnati Reds last night.
That win now means last year's World Series runners up have now swept both the Reds and the Angels in the last two series'.
