Instead of being disappointed with a fourth place finish at her comeback race, Lolo Jones is considering it a miracle that she was even able to participate.
"It was honestly a miracle. They said they never had anybody come back that fast," Jones told the Winston-Salem Journal. "That's a lot of credit to the Olympic training center for helping me through it because physically it was hard, but I was like, 'Man, I don't know if I can get through another surgery because it's been so many of them.'"
The 33-year-old Olympic hurdler participated in the Camel City Elite Races on Jan. 31, three months after undergoing hip surgery. After finishing fourth place in the 60-meter hurdles at 8.17 seconds, Jones called her ability to run in the Winston-Salem, North Carolina race a blessing. more >>

Last Tuesday, the police questioned Denver Broncos practice squad safety Ryan Murphy in a prostitution sting, although he was subsequently released without being charged.

The discussions are reportedly spearheaded by the president of basketball operations, Danny Ainge, who by the way is struggling to build a winning team in Boston after the championship run back when Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Rajon Rondo led the team. more >>
The New York Jets is one of those teams in the NFL that has not gotten the best luck when it comes to quarterbacks. Some good ones came in, but no one really became a franchise player for the past few years.
However, that luck may soon change in the most unexpected way.
A report from the Daily News revealed that the unhappy quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, Colin Kaepernick, is trying to get out and is contemplating on joining the Jets. If this rumor is true and New York does everything it needs to do to get him, then the team's fortunes next season will certainly turn around. more >>

Warren did not suit up for Phoenix's game against the Dallas Mavericks when the medical staff diagnosed him with a right ankle impingement; but it turned out to be a more serious foot injury. Before the injury, Warren was already averaging decent numbers of 11.0 points a game and 3.1 rebounds, although his team hasn't really been that competitive as of late. more >>
