Tracy Stallard, who gave up Roger Maris’ 61st homer, dies at 80

The first investigation by West Point concluded that there was a consensual sexual relationship between the two cadets, despite Bradshaw, who has since invoked a right to remain silent, reportedly denying having any sexual contact, according to The Daily Beast.

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz is doubtful for Sunday’s showdown against the Los Angeles Rams due to a concussion he suffered last weekend, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Ertz exited last Sunday’s 24-10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks with a head injury.

He remained on the ground and appeared dazed following a third-quarter hit over the middle by safety Bradley McDougald. Ertz walked off under his own power but was taken to the trainers tent to be tested for a concussion before heading to the locker room. He did not return to the game.

Although he was OK’d to practice Thursday, he has yet to clear the concussion protocol, according to the Eagles.

NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Troy Vincent said Wednesday the NFL would consider implementing a targeting rule in the wake of a weekend marred by several helmet-to-helmet hits.

Steelers safety Mike Mitchell already went off on commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL about their punishments for hits after games, so one can only imagine players’ reactions if the NFL adds even stricter punishment during games.

“I would just hate to see rule come into the pros because it makes me not want to watch the college game because I know at any second, a guy could be kicked out for a hit and I don’t know how it is, but they possibly be suspended for half of the game or something like that,” Wagner said. “Nobody wants to see that.”

Wagner was fined once this season for his hit on Texans running back Lamar Miller, but it was for a horse-collar tackle and not a helmet-to-helmet hit. He does have trouble with the position defensive players are put in with the rules already in place.
