Tannehill blows out his knee and the Teddy rumors fly:

We know all-too-well about losing our starting QB to a knee injury in training camp. That’s what happened to Ryan Tannehill this week and the Dolphins are now scrambling to find options, if he can’t come back.

Twins bats get hot and Colon goes the distance vs the Rangers:

Dozier led the game off tonight with another solo HR. It is his 18th HR of the year. The Twins didn’t look back from there, getting 3 more in the 1st inning alone. Grossman., Dozier, and Mauer all had multiple hits.

Lindsey Whalen breaks her hand, has surgery:

The Lynx took a hit today when Lindsey Whalen had surgery on a fractured bone in her hand. Whalen is a beloved sports figure in Minnesota from her days at the U to leading the Lynx to WNBA Titles. Her timetable is unclear.
