Question of the Day
Patriots WR Edelman arrested on assault charge

c The Oakland Raiders signed wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, reuniting him with quarterback Carson Palmer. Palmer and Houshmandzadeh were teammates in Cincinnati for six seasons. Houshmandzadeh, 34, had been out of the league since playing with Baltimore last season.
c Ryan Succop kicked a 30-yard field goal in overtime Monday night, giving Kansas City an improbable 23-20 win over the San Diego Chargers, the Chiefs’ fourth straight victory.

Hendrick back home after being injured in plane crash
CHARLOTTE, N.C. | NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick returned home Tuesday, a day after he broke a rib and shoulder when his plane ran off the runway in Key West, Fla.
Hendrick Motorsports said the brakes failed when the Gulfstream G150 landed at Key West International Airport on Monday night. The plane is co-owned by Jimmie Johnson and normally shuttles the five-time defending NASCAR champion and his family to and from races.
In 2004, a plane Hendrick owned crashed en route to a race in Martinsville, Va., killing all 10 on board. That included Hendrick’s son, Ricky, his brother and twin nieces.
