Robinson takes on double duty on offensive line
ST. LOUIS -- Rookie Greg Robinson has been getting double duty at guard and tackle in training camp for the St. Louis Rams. The No. 2 pick has been equal to the task.

Cardinals recall Martinez, demote Siegrist to Class AAA Memphis
ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals recalled right-hander Carlos Martinez from a short stay at Class AAA Memphis and demoted struggling lefty Kevin Siegrist, who starred as a rookie for a NL championship team. "He feels physically strong, but there's just something that's a click off," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said about Siegrist. "I think we've talked about this before, trying to get somebody right here isn't always the best answer."...

Panthers quarterback Newton ready for return from surgery
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Cam Newton will see his first game action since undergoing ankle surgery in March when the Carolina Panthers host the Kansas City Chiefs tonight.

Phelps dealing with defeat in comeback
IRVINE, Calif. -- Michael Phelps has always fed off adversity. Not that the most decorated Olympian has faced much in the pool. Until now. Phelps lost all four of his races at the recent U.S. national championships. Hardly shocking for a guy who is four months out of retirement, but somewhat surprising for someone who already owns 53 national titles...

MANKATO, Minn. -- Jim Brown spinning his way through the line and breaking loose in the secondary with a burst of speed.

Cardinals hurler sends St. Louis past Miami
MIAMI -- R&B blared in the St. Louis Cardinals' postgame clubhouse, making conversation difficult, and Justin Masterson reached over to the stereo and turned down the volume so he could talk about his latest outing.

Tiger Woods pulls out of US Ryder Cup consideration
Tiger Woods removed himself from consideration for the Ryder Cup team Wednesday evening with a clear message that he is not healthy enough to play. One day after U.S. captain Tom Watson said he trusted Woods to give him the "straight skinny" on the condition of his back injury and his game, Woods said he called the 64-year-old captain to say he would not be available...

Running down Heisman contenders not named Jameis
The preseason front-runner for the Heisman Trophy last season was easy. Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel won it as a freshman the year before, so there was little reason to pick against him. No different this year. Florida State's Jameis Winston won it as a freshman last season while leading the Seminoles to the national title, so, again, no sense in looking elsewhere...

Marlins, runs elude slumping Cardinals
MIAMI -- The drive down the left-field line took a surprising path, clanging off the foul pole for a homer by a batter who rarely hits them against a pitcher who rarely gives them up. That narrow margin loomed large because of the way Jarred Cosart pitched against Adam Wainwright. Cosart went seven innings Tuesday to earn his first victory for the Miami Marlins, who beat Wainwright and the St. Louis Cardinals 3-0...
Cards stumble in opener
MIAMI -- Shelby Miller was mad at himself over two bad pitches -- especially because they were against one of the top sluggers in the game.

For all his talent, McIlroy wins a major with grit
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Anyone could see Rory McIlroy had the gifts to be the next big thing in golf. His victory in the PGA Championship was more about grit.
