Jeter done for the year
New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter will miss the rest of the season after being placed on the disabled list yesterday with an ankle injury. The 39-year-old Jeter last played Saturday against Boston and started the year on the disabled list after breaking his left ankle in the 2012 playoffs. He returned to the DL twice more and played in only 17 games, batting .190 with one homer and seven RBIs.

Trouble in the SEC
Yahoo Sports is reporting that five SEC players received improper benefits during their college careers, including former Alabama offensive tackle D.J. Fluker, casting yet another dark cloud over college sports. The other players were Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray and defensive lineman Maurice Couch, Mississippi State defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and wide receiver Chad Bumphis. The report cited text messages and financial records of former Alabama defensive end Luther Davis and an unnamed NFL source who said Davis was a go-between for the players with NFL agents and financial advisers.

Suh appeals $100K fine
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh says he is appealing the NFL’s $100,000 fine against him for his hit on a Vikings player over the weekend. Suh says he knows the NFL is concerned about player safety and that’s one of the reasons he apologized to Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan at halftime of Sunday’s game after hitting him low during an interception return.

Sprint Cup
An Associated Press review of radio communications from last Saturday’s Sprint Cup race at Richmond reveals Front Row Motorsports asked for a deal from Penske Racing in the closing laps and then helped make sure Penske’s Joey Logano made the Chase for the championship by having one of its drivers back off. David Gilliland’s spotter tells his crew that Logano’s team wanted Gilliland’s spot on the track “and they said they’d probably be able to help us in the future.” A short time later, Logano passed Gilliland on a restart and finished 22nd, one spot ahead of Gilliland and good enough for a berth in the Chase field.
