CLEVELAND (AP) - Josh Gordon's strange, stuttering career will start anew in New England. Bill Belichick and Tom Brady have a new offensive toy.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said he has sent letters and had conversations with families of players as a key step toward containing and repairing the scandal that led to his three-game suspension, a saga he describes as "a window in time I made an error."

NEW YORK (AP) - Yankees slugger Aaron Judge had 11 at-bats in a simulated game and New York closer Aroldis Chapman threw 22 pitches, perhaps the last steps before both are cleared to return to full action. The team said Judge faced right-handers A.J. Cole and Chance Adams along with minor league left-hander Phillip Diehl at Yankee Stadium on Monday. Judge is recovering from a broken right wrist, sustained when he was hit by a pitch from Kansas City's Jakob Junis on July 26.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - He's back. Carson Wentz has been cleared to return and is slated to start for the Philadelphia Eagles against Indianapolis in Week 3. "I was impressed with how well he attacked his rehab throughout the offseason," coach Doug Pederson said Monday. "He's done everything we've asked him to do and he's ready to go."
