JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Oakland Raiders running back Maurice Jones-Drew is being sued in Florida, accused of punching a bouncer at a St. Augustine restaurant.

The suit was electronically filed May 30 in St. Johns County.

Bouncer Kasim Howard is suing Jones-Drew, saying the former Jacksonville Jaguars star punched him May 26, 2013, at the Conch House Restaurant. Howard accuses Jones-Drew of intentionally causing injury and severe emotional distress.

MIAMI (AP) - San Francisco 49ers star quarterback Colin Kaepernick and two other NFL players will not face charges in an incident involving a woman at a downtown hotel, prosecutors announced.

A memo released by the Miami-Dade County State Attorney’s Office said there was insufficient evidence that any crime was committed in the hotel room on April 1. Tests indicated the woman was not sexually assaulted and other evidence backed up the players’ contention that nothing happened.

In fact, the memo by Assistant State Attorney Laura Adams described the woman as incoherent when police and fire-rescue officers responded to 911 calls to the room at the Viceroy Hotel. She had to be sedated in order to be taken to the hospital, where she was temporarily involuntarily committed for her own safety, the memo says.

PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Steelers signed center Maurkice Pouncey to a five-year extension that will keep the three-time Pro Bowler as the anchor of the offensive line for the rest of the decade.

The new deal averages $8.8 million per season, making Pouncey the highest-paid center in the NFL.

The 24-year-old Pouncey was entering the final year of the rookie contract he signed after the Steelers took him with the 18th overall selection in the 2010 draft. He’s the only center in league history to make the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons.

TORONTO (AP) - The Canadian Football League’s players’ association voted to accept a new five-year collective bargaining agreement, the union said.

The CFL’s board of governors is scheduled to vote on the agreement Friday. The deal includes a $5 million salary cap in the first year. Last year, the CFL’s salary cap was $4.4 million.



HALLE, Germany (AP) - Rafael Nadal was knocked out in the second round of the grass-court Gerry Weber Open, losing 6-4, 6-1 to German wild card Dustin Brown.

Brown, the world No. 85, broke Nadal’s serve at the fifth attempt to win the first set, and he pulled off two audacious lobs in succession to break the Spaniard again early in the second. Nothing Nadal tried seem to work in his first match since winning his ninth French Open title. He had a first-round bye at Halle, where he was the top seed.
