The top four remain the same in this week's FCS polls....

    UNDATED - The top four remain the same in this week's FCS polls. Defending champion James Madison remains at No. 1, followed by North Dakota State at No. 2, Sam Houston State is No. 3 and South Dakota State is No. 4. Youngstown State is No. 5 in the FCS Coaches poll, while Jacksonville State holds that spot in the STATS FCS Top 25.  

    James Madison leading rusher Cardon Johnson has been lost for the season due to a right leg injury suffered in Saturday's win over Norfolk State. The senior rushed for 347 yards and three touchdowns in the team's 3-0 start.

    Following North Dakota's 45-7 loss at South Dakota, the Fighting Hawks dropped seven spots in the STATS poll to No. 17 and nine spots in Coaches poll to No. 19.  UND is now 1-2 on the season.

    South Dakota, now at 3-0, jumped ten places in the STATS poll to No. 13 and nine places in the Coaches poll to No. 14.

    MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Twins begin a huge 10-game roadtrip tonight with the first of three in New York.  The Twins trail the Yankees by four games for the first American League wildcard spot.  Minnesota's closest challenger for the second wildcard spot is the Los Angeles Angels who are two games back to the Twins.

    Ervin Santana (15-7, 3.35 ERA) starts tonight for Minnesota, while the Yankees send out former Twin Jaime Garcia (5-9, 4.35 ERA). Garcia made just one start for Minnesota on July 28th before being traded to the Yankees.

     EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Vikings coach Mike Zimmer says Sam Bradford's left knee is "feeling better" a day after the quarterback missed Minnesota's game against Pittsburgh. But Zimmer is unsure when Bradford will play again.
 
     Bradford's backup, Case Keenum, struggled while filling in. But Zimmer does not believe the Vikings need to find another quarterback while Bradford recovers. For now, Zimmer terms the injury day to day.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

       UNDATED (AP) - The Lions and Giants close out the NFL's Week 2 schedule tonight in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Eli Manning and the Giants will have to wait until pregame warmups to see if wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.'s sprained left ankle will keep him out for a second straight game.
 
     Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, the league's highest-paid player, was in midseason form in Detroit's 35-23 season-opening win over Arizona with 292 yards passing and four touchdowns while engineering his 27th fourth-quarter or overtime comeback since 2011.

     CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Hendrick Motorsports has replaced driver Kasey Kahne's crew chief for the rest of the season. The team named Darian Grubb the crew chief for Kahne's No. 5 Chevrolet for the remaining nine races of the NASCAR season. Kahne is in the playoffs and finished 21st Sunday at Chicagoland.
 
     Grubb replaced Keith Rodden, who was the crew chief for 99 races. Rodden remains under contract to Hendrick Motorsports through the end of the 2017 season and will be assigned other responsibilities. The team's crew chief for the 2018 season has not been determined. Kahne won't return to the team next season and has to land a new ride.
 
     Grubb won the 2011 Cup series championship as the crew chief for Tony Stewart.

     UNDATED (AP) - A federal judge in Texas has denied the NFL's request to suspend his injunction that blocked a six-game suspension for Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott. The ruling from U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant today was expected and came after the NFL had already moved on to the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans with the same request.
 
    Elswhere in the NFL:

     - Lawrence Timmons' future with the Miami Dolphins appears to be in doubt after the linebacker went AWOL Saturday, the day before the Dolphins' season opener in Los Angeles against the Chargers. The Dolphins later made contact, but he wasn't with them at the game and didn't fly back to South Florida on the team plane after Miami's 19-17 win. Coach Adam Gase declined to discuss Timmons' future Monday.
 
     - The Carolina Panthers will be without tight end Greg Olsen for the next several weeks.  Coach Ron Rivera says Olsen had surgery to repair a broken right foot. The injury occurred while Olsen was running a route and felt something pop in the foot.  Olsen has never missed a game due to injury in 11 seasons. He has gained at least 1,000 yards receiving in each of the past three seasons.
 
     - Browns wide receiver Corey Coleman broke his right hand in Sunday's loss at Baltimore and is having surgery. It's the same hand Coleman broke as a rookie last year in practice and missed six games. Coach Hue Jackson did not give a timetable on his return.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys not only are the NFL's most valuable franchise for the 11th straight year, they are the top-valued team in the world. According to Forbes magazine, their worth increased 14 percent in the last year, reaching $4.8 billion. That's more than $1 billion ahead of the Patriots ($3.7 billion). Rounding out the NFL's top five are the Giants ($3.3 billion), Redskins ($3.1 billion) and 49ers ($3.05 billion).
 
     On average, an NFL franchise is worth $2.52 billion, an increase of 8 percent since 2016. Much of that can be attributed to rights fees and new stadiums or stadium renovations. Every team is worth at least a billion, with the Buffalo Bills last at $1.6 billion.
 
     Globally, according to Forbes' rankings of July, the Cowboys are followed by baseball's New York Yankees at $3.7 billion, a figure the Patriots have now tied. Next in those rankings are three European soccer giants: Manchester United at $3.69 billion, FC Barcelona at $3.64 billion and Real Madrid at $3.58 billion.

     UNDATED (AP) - Tigers manager Brad Ausmus says he may play Andrew Romine at all nine positions during one of Detroit's games this week against Oakland. Romine has played everywhere except catcher in his career, and if he needs pointers behind the plate, he can ask his brother Austin, a backstop with the New York Yankees. With Detroit closing out the season against playoff-chasing Minnesota and Kansas City, this series against the A's is the last chance Romine would get to play all nine positions in a game without possible postseason implications.
