Pryor going pro? Not so fast

Almost as quickly as the speculation began, Terrelle Pryor tried to put it to rest. Pryor took to his Twitter account on Monday night to dispel any rumors that he was thinking of leaving Ohio State for the NFL supplemental draft. Pryor tweeted, "I'll be suited up in Lincoln Nebraska!! And first player to meet with the Wolverines for the fourth time!!" Ohio State's game against Nebraska on Oct. 8 is the first game Pryor is eligible to return from a five-game suspension. Pryor, along with four other teammates suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season, vowed before the Sugar Bowl to return for their senior seasons.

Injury Bug Bites Hamilton Again

I hate to see this! He is my favorite player and I bought tickets to see him play against Cleveland in June. 2 Months is a long time for MLB to be without Hamilton, let alone me.

Is there an injury curse hanging over the Rangers' reigning AL MVP? In the last three seasons, Josh Hamilton has battled a series of freak injuries and varying levels of pain that have cost him large chunks of games.
