Peyton Manning’s career is over — Rob Lowe says so
Question of the Day
Rob Lowe is taking on another role — pigskin prognosticator.
No official word yet from Manning, the 35-year-old star who missed this season with a neck injury. But ESPN’s Chris Mortensen tweeted that Manning’s father, Archie, laughed at Lowe’s report and said it wasn’t true.
Tebow won’t require surgery for injuries
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Tim Tebow is expected to make a full recovery, without surgery, from rib, lung and chest injuries he sustained in the Denver Broncos’ loss at New England in an AFC divisional playoff game last weekend.
ESPN first reported Wednesday that Tebow was hurt on a third-quarter tackle during Denver’s 45-10 loss, then had trouble sleeping because of the pain and underwent an MRI on his chest Monday.
Backup Brady Quinn got ready after Tebow was hit by Vince Wilfork and Rob Ninkovich, but Tebow stayed in. The injuries aren’t expected to interfere with Tebow’s offseason training program.
Fisher lends support at scene of auto accident
ST. LOUIS — New St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher lent support to an auto accident victim Sunday night in Tennessee.
Fisher had been on his way home after having dinner with Brian Schottenheimer, whom he’d interviewed earlier in the day for the offensive coordinator position. Fisher said he was among the first to arrive at the accident scene and stayed with an injured 13-year-old boy until medical personnel arrived.
Fisher said Tuesday after his introductory news conference in St. Louis that the victim was in stable but critical condition.
