NEW YORK (AP) -- The NHL has called off games through Dec. 14 bringing the toll to 422 regular season games lost to the 69-day lockout. The labor dispute has also claimed the All-Star Weekend scheduled for Jan. 26-27 in Columbus, Ohio. Negotiating sessions this week provided little movement toward resolving the economic issues that are at the core of the impasse.
NEW YORK (AP) -- A top NFL executive says the rule that negated using video replay to confirm a Houston touchdown in a win over Detroit yesterday "may be too harsh" and will be re-examined immediately. Because all scoring plays are automatically reviewed, a 15-yard penalty is assessed if a coach challenges the play and the automatic review is negated. Justin Forsett's run was ruled a touchdown, even though replay showed his knee touched the ground after he was hit. Lions coach Jim Schwartz challenged, resulting in a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and cancelled review.
PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Troy Polamalu (pohl-uh-MAH'-loo) was on the practice field with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the first time in seven weeks today, but he's still doubtful for Sunday's game against Cleveland. The four-time All-Pro safety has been battling a strained right calf and hasn't practiced since Oct. 5.
KENT, Ohio (AP) -- C.J. Malauulu and Luke Wollet scored defensive touchdowns in the first quarter to lead 23rd-ranked Kent State to a 28-6 win over Ohio University. Malauulu returned an interception for a score just 12 seconds after Trayion Durham's 15-yard scoring run to help the Golden Flashes complete a perfect 8-0 Mid-American Conference record.
UNDATED (AP) -- Morehead State basketball coach Sean Woods has been suspended for one game after pushing one of his players in the back during Wednesday's loss to Kentucky. Athletic director Brian Hutchinson suspended Woods for Monday's game with Norfolk State after meeting with the coach. Woods called his actions "inappropriate and unacceptable" and vowed the situation wouldn't happen again.
