We begin in the NFL where the Dallas Cowboys have become the latest team to lose a key player to a season-ending injury this preseason.

Orlando Scandrick, the team’s lead cornerback, has been consigned to the sidelines for the 2015 season after Tuesday’s practice field injury was confirmed as a torn ACL and MCL.

Without Scandrick the Cowboys' secondary looks vulnerable. Free agent bust Brandon Carr will have to step up, as will both Tyler Patmon and Morris Claiborne, the latter of which has his own injury fears.

Elsewhere in the league two Super Bowl contenders have bolstered their rosters with veteran signings today.

The Denver Broncos added Pro Bowl guard Evan Mathis on a one-year contract, whilst the Pittsburgh Steelers addressed quarterback depth issues by signing another former Eagle, Michael Vick.


Across to the NBA, and speculation linking Metta World Peace to a shock return to the Los Angeles Lakers continues to grow.

Reports today have revealed the franchise has had a number on conversations with the veteran throughout the offseason.


And finally, in baseball, the Houston Astros were emphatic winners on the road against the New York Yankees last night, defeating their American League rivals 15-1.

The win now means Houston are now virtually level with the Yankees as third best in the AL.
