The Beavers get right back to work as they host Northern State at 7:05 p.m. tonight....

    MINOT, N.D. (MSU) - The Minot State football team notched their first win of the season last Saturday, and the first under head coach Mike Aldrich, with the 27-19 victory over the University of Mary Marauders to retain the Battle of the Big Lake Trophy for the third consecutive season.    

    The Beavers get right back to work as they host Northern State at 7:05 p.m. tonight in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Thursday Night Football game. Northern State enters the contest with a 2-3 overall record and a 1-0 record in the NSIC North. The Wolves defeated Minnesota State-Moorhead 28-20 last week to snap a three-game losing streak.

    Tonight is Military Appreciation Day as the Beavers will honor and recognize all those who have served to protect the freedom we enjoy.

     EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford has rejoined the team for practice for the first time in two weeks, raising the possibility of him coming back as the starter for the upcoming game at Chicago. Bradford went through drop-back throwing drills today during the initial portion of the workout that was open to reporters. He has been kept out of the past three games because of a sore left knee that stemmed from the season opener.
 
     Coach Mike Zimmer said he doesn't know yet whether Bradford or backup Case Keenum will start on Monday against the Bears, but the extra day before the game will give Bradford a better chance to be cleared for a return. The Vikings (2-2) have lost two of their three games with Keenum.

     EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have signed veteran running back Stevan Ridley to replace injured rookie Dalvin Cook. The Vikings placed Cook on injured reserve and added Ridley to the roster today. Cook tore the ACL in his left knee Sunday, cutting short a promising first season in the NFL.
 
     Ridley was a third-round draft pick by New England out of LSU in 2011. He has 2,914 career yards on 688 carries for three teams. He rushed for 1,263 yards and 12 touchdowns for the Patriots in 2012 but has bounced around the league the last two years. Ridley was in training camp with Denver this year but released during the final cuts before the regular season.
 
     He'll complement Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon in the Vikings' backfield.

     TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Jameis Winston is excited about the next challenge in the maturation of the young Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a prime-time test against Tom Brady and the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots tonight on Thursday Night Football.
 
     The 23-year-old quarterback calls it "just a blessing for me personally" as he looks ahead to tonight's matchup at Raymond James Stadium, where the up-and-coming Bucs have won six straight going back to last season. New England enters the match searching for answers on defense, trying to avoid falling below .500 beyond the second week of a season for the first time since 2012. The Patriots have allowed a league-worst 456.8 yards per game, while also yielding nearly as many points (128) as the defending champs have scored (129).

     HOUSTON (AP) - Red Sox lefty Chris Sale made his first postseason appearance when he started against Astros righty Justin Verlander in Game 1 of the AL Division Series at Minute Maid Park this afternoon. Sale led the majors with 308 strikeouts while going 17-8 with a 2.90 ERA for Boston. Verlander excelled after being traded from Detroit to Houston, winning all five starts for his new team with a 1.06 ERA.

     CLEVELAND (AP) - The Yankees led the majors in home runs this season, and Aaron Judge, Didi Gregorius and Brett Gardner connected to lead New York over Minnesota in the AL wild-card game and into a matchup with the Indians in the ALDS. Manager Terry Francona has opted to start Trevor Bauer in Game 1 at Cleveland, rather than dominant Corey Kluber. Francona said part of his decision is so he can use his best pitcher - Kluber - in a potential Game 5. Bauer shook off a slow start and went 17-9 with a 4.19 ERA in 31 starts this year. Since he began throwing a slider, he's 10-1 with 2.60 ERA in 14 games. Sonny Gray will start the opener tonight for New York.

     CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Dannon, the maker of Oikos yogurt, is cutting ties with spokesman Cam Newton following what the company perceives as "sexist" comments the Carolina quarterback made to a female reporter. Dannon released a statement saying it was "shocked and disheartened" at the former league MVP's behavior and comments toward Jourdan Rodrigue, a Charlotte Observer reporter.
 
     When Rodrigue asked Newton about wide receiver Devin Funchess' route running Wednesday, Newton laughed and said, "it's funny to hear a female talk about routes. It's funny."
 
     The Dannon statement noted the company perceives Newton's comments as "sexist and disparaging to all women. ...  It's simply not ok to belittle anyone based on gender. We have shared our concerns with Cam and will no longer work with him."  Newton hasn't issued an apology.
 
     In other NFL news:
 
     - Jaguars receiver Marqise Lee missed a second consecutive practice today, raising questions about his availability Sunday at Pittsburgh. Lee injured ribs on the right side of his body when New York Jets linebacker Demario Davis tackled him in the fourth quarter last week. Lee later dropped a third down pass in overtime that would have put the Jaguars in field-goal range. He has 13 receptions for 159 yards this season and is tied for the NFL lead with four dropped passes.
 
     - The Los Angeles Chargers have re-signed kicker Nick Novak, waiving rookie Younghoe Koo after just four games. The Chargers made the moves today. Novak is a 13-year NFL veteran who has kicked for eight franchises, including the San Diego Chargers from 2011-14. He made 101 of his 117 field goal attempts for the Chargers before spending the past two seasons with Houston.
