    Jarrett Stidham knows who's the starting QB in Las Vegas. But that hasn’t stopped him from acting and performing like an incoming starter for the Raiders. After all, when there’s a chance you understand a new offensive system better than probably anyone else coming into training camp, there’s an edge that helps develop confidence. The Patriots drafted Stidham from Auburn in the 2019 draft while Raiders coach Josh McDaniels was still the offensive coordinator in New England.

      USA Table Tennis CEO Virginia Sung won an election to the board of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee and will take over a spot held by former Duke athletic director Kevin White. Sung won in a race that came down to her and Max Siegel, the CEO of USA Track and Field in a contest between the leader of one of the country’s smaller national governing bodies and one of its biggest. USA Table Tennis’ budget of about $2.5 million in 2020 is in line with those of around half of the 51 NGBs that had votes in determining who would take White’s place starting next year. USA Wrestling chief Rich Bender had previously been elected to serve another term as an NGB director on the 16-person board.

        Carl Lawson’s first season with the New York Jets last year was over before it even started. The defensive end suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon during training camp and was forced to be a spectator. He’s healthy and back where he dreamed of being during 12 long months of rehabilitation. He said he wanted it “as bad as you want to breathe.” Coach Robert Saleh said Lawson will play in the preseason opener Friday night at Philadelphia. The defensive end and the rest of the starters on defense and offense will play about a quarter.

          The Saints have cut veteran running back Malcolm Brown and waived defensive back Bryce Thompson with an injury designation. Free-agent quarterback K.J. Costello has announced on social media that he's signing with New Orleans. Thompson appeared to have a serious lower leg injury during Tuesday’s practice at Saints training camp. The second-year pro out of Tennessee appeared in two games on special teams last season. Brown is a seven-year NFL veteran who spent his first six seasons with the St. Louis and Los Angeles Rams. He played for Miami last season. Costello's arrival would give New Orleans a third available quarterback in Saturday night’s preseason opener at Houston while Jameis Winston sits out with a sprained right foot.

          CEDAR FALLS — Northern Iowa head coach Mark Farley left little doubt about what he looks to when making decisions about the Panthers’ offense through his first two press conferences of the fall.

          Tua Tagovailoa would rather chat with Tom Brady than answer questions about him taking his job. Tagovailoa spent time talking with Brady while the Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers held a joint practice Wednesday. He had a simple reply when asked about Miami being penalized for tampering with Brady. “I’m still here. To me, that’s all noise at this point,” Tagovailoa said. Last week, the NFL suspended Dolphins owner Stephen Ross through Oct. 17, fined him $1.5 million and docked the team a first-round pick in the 2023 draft and a third-round selection in the 2024 draft for talking to Brady while he was under contract with the Patriots in 2019 and the Buccaneers in 2021.
