Elsewhere, the Montreal Impact got off to a great start in their CONCACAF Champions League semi-final whilst a New York Mets pitcher has worrying injury news.
We start off in the NFL, where Jerry Jones has come out and defended the Cowboys latest signing. Dallas signed Greg Hardy yesterday, who has a domestic violence charge on his resume, but Jones said that Hardy knows he's got to do better.
"Obviously a great deal of our study was dedicated to the issue of domestic violence, and the recent events that associated Greg with that issue. We know that Greg’s status remains under review by the National Football League," Jones said on the announcement of Hardy's signing.
“Our organization understands the very serious nature of domestic violence in our society and in our league. We know that Greg has a firm understanding of those issues as well.”
Over to the NBA now, where Al Harrington has decided to retire after 16 years in the league. Harrington was drafted by the Pacers in 1998 and went on to play for Indiana, Atlanta and the Knicks during his career.
To the MLS now, where the Montreal Impact won in the first leg of their CONCACAF Champions League semi-final. Ignacio Piatti and Victor Cabrera scored for the Impact.
And finally in Baseball, where more information has come out regarding Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler. Wheeler will likely need Tommy John surgery on an elbow injury, but reports today say that he also pitched most of last season with a torn tendon.
