February 25, 2021

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles County sheriff is characterizing the crash that seriously injured Tiger Woods as “purely an accident.” Sheriff Alex Villanueva appeared to rule out any potential criminal charges even as authorities were still investigating. Deputies did not see any evidence that the golf star was impaired by drugs or alcohol after Tuesday’s rollover wreck on a downhill stretch of road known for crashes.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are open to giving seven-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady a contract extension. General manager Jason Licht reiterated today that the reigning champs would like to keep the 43-year-old quarterback in uniform for as long as Brady wants to play. Licht declined to characterize any conversations the team’s had about that prospect.

NEW YORK (AP) — Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker has been selected to replace injured Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis on the Western Conference team for the March 7 NBA All-Star Game in Atlanta.

MONTREAL (AP) — The Montreal Canadiens were off to a good start this season, but their current struggles have led to the dismissals of head coach Claude Julien  and associate coach Kirk Muller. Assistant coach Dominique Ducharme was appointed interim coach with the team and former NHL forward Alex Burros was added to the coaching staff. Ducharme inherits a team that has dropped three straight and six of eight since a 7-1-2 start.

UNDATED (AP) — Reigning American League MVP José Abreu has tested positive for COVID-19 and will remain away from the Chicago White Sox for at least the next few days.
