Crossing Crumlin Road

  
This story appears in ESPN The Magazine's August 21 Fighting Issue. Subscribe today! Just before Christmas, the drug dealers hanging on a north Dublin corner saw Conor McGregor's white BMW turn down their dead-end road. They couldn't believe it. Sheriff Street was among the worst streets in the city, blocked off at one end, the area controlled by one of the two local gangs. The Hutch family ran this part of the north side, while the Kinahans operated mainly in the neighborhoods south of the river dividing the town. Some of the Kinahan bosses and foot soldiers lived in Crumlin, where McGregor grew up. The two gangs were in a bloody feud that had Dublin on edge and the newspapers keeping score: 10 killed by the Kinahans, two killed by the Hutches. McGregor started to slow down. The dealers stepped out into the street, blocking his escape. A woman is telling me.........

ATLANTA -- Rookie shortstop Johan Camargo has been pulled out of the Atlanta Braves' lineup after injuring his right knee while jogging onto the field before Tuesday night's game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Camargo was taking the field when his right knee appeared to lock as he reached down to grab a handful of dirt or touch the chalk on the first-base line. He fell to the ground on the infield grass. Camargo was unable to put weight on his right leg when leaving the field. He needed assistance from assistant trainer Jim Lovell and third base coach Ron Washington.

LATROBE, Pa. --?

Brown, 29, who's close with Beckham, 24, knows both players are up to the challenge. "Everybody's coming ...That's what makes the game competitive and amazing," Brown told ESPN. "A guy like Odell Beckham is a game-changing guy, trying to unlock the codes. One of my close friends. I always tell him, keep coming." Brown says he and Beckham are constantly critiquing each other's games, including sharing personal videos of their offseason receiving work -- "little stuff, sending clips so we can see each other," he said. Brown has a personal videographer who often films his workouts, which usually make their way onto social media platforms. Beckham, Julio Jones and Brown are widely considered the game's three best receivers. Brown is.........

Knicks sign Michael Beasley to 1-year deal

  
The New York Knicks have signed former No. 2 overall draft pick Michael Beasley?to a one-year deal, the team announced?Tuesday. League sources told ESPN the deal is for the veteran's minimum, which is $2,116,955, according to ESPN's Bobby Marks. Beasley, originally drafted by the Miami Heat in 2008, averaged 9.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 16 minutes per game last season for the Milwaukee Bucks.?He shot a career-high 54.5 percent from the field while taking 7.3 shots per game. The Knicks are Beasley's sixth team in 10 seasons. It is unclear where the 6-foot-9 Beasley will fit on the Knicks' depth chart. If the organization executes a trade of Carmelo Anthony, Beasley could play significant minutes at small forward for New York. With? Ramon Sessions?also officially signing his deal, the Knicks have 15 NBA contracts on their roster and one player -- Luke Kornet -- on a two-way contract. Unless they release a.........

Knicks close to 1-year deal with Michael Beasley

  
The New York Knicks are expected to come to an agreement with former No. 2 draft pick Michael Beasley on Tuesday, league sources told ESPN. Beasley, originally drafted by the Miami Heat in 2008, averaged 9.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 16 minutes per game last season for the Milwaukee Bucks. The Knicks will be Beasley's sixth team in 10 seasons. Barring a trade, New York does not have any available cap space, so its deal with Beasley will be a one-year pact for the veteran's minimum. It is unclear where the 6-foot-9 Beasley would fit on the Knicks' depth chart. But if the organization executes a trade of Carmelo Anthony, Beasley could play significant minutes at small forward for New York. Basketball Insiders reported earlier Tuesday that the Knicks were nearing an agreement with Beasley. ......

Patriots become first NFL team to have own planes

  
The New England Patriots have become the first NFL team to buy their own plane to fly to games. Make that two planes. Sources tell ESPN that the reigning Super Bowl champions bought two 767 Boeing wide-body jets in the offseason and retrofitted them with all first-class seats, some of which recline completely. On the outside of at least one of the planes is the team logo and five Lombardi trophies on the tail. These planes, depending on miles flown and condition, generally cost between $5 million and $65 million. A source said the planes the Patriots bought are extended range, which allows the planes to fly nonstop for about 12 hours. A brand new plane could cost $200 million. One plane will be used as the main plane for the season, while the other will be the backup, with flight operations being run out of Providence, Rhode Island, sources said. Patriots spokesman Stacey James said team officials would not be publicly commenting on the.........

Packers release DT Letroy Guion

  
The Green Bay Packers on Tuesday released defensive tackle Letroy Guion, who was arrested on charges of intoxicated driving in June and was suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Guion was arrested June 21 in Hawaii, and a police report showed his?blood alcohol level was .086 percent about an hour after his early morning arrest in Waikiki. He?smelled of alcohol and marijuana, stumbled when he walked and spoke with slurred speech when police pulled him over, according to the police report. He started 15 games last season, making 30 tackles. The nine-year veteran agreed to a three-year deal worth $11.25 million in February 2016. Guion also was suspended for three games in 2015 for violating the substance-abuse policy after he was arrested in February 2015 for possession of marijuana in his hometown of Starke, Florida, and paid a $5,000 fine as part of a plea.........

Josh Rosen turns down the volume entering third year at UCLA

  
LOS ANGELES -- Everything is new at UCLA. The Bruins have new uniforms as part of a massive apparel deal. The practice field has a new artificial playing surface. And there's the new Wasserman Football Center that will house all aspects of the program from meetings to workouts. But the biggest and boldest change at UCLA is the decidedly low-key persona quarterback Josh Rosen has taken on, a dramatic shift from the brashness that has been associated with him. "I'm just kind of living my life," Rosen said Sunday. "I didn't play as well last year so I guess less people kind of covering me, but I'm just working as hard as I can every day." Rosen's first two seasons in Westwood were defined as much by his proclivity for creating headlines away from the field as what he did throwing for 5,583 yards and 33 touchdowns. There was the viral photo showing a hot tub he brought into his dorm room, another disparaging then-presidential candidate Donald Trump while.........

Jarvis Landry says allegations of battery against girlfriend not true

  
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry said Tuesday that allegations of battery against his girlfriend are not true. "I've been upfront with the team and the law enforcement," Landry said. "Hopefully, this gets resolved in a timely fashion." Landry is under police investigation for possible battery charges stemming from an incident with his girlfriend that took place earlier this year. The Fort Lauderdale Police Department has presented its investigation to the Broward County State Attorney's office, which is reviewing the incident. A spokesman for the state attorney said Monday a decision on whether to press charges against Landry is not expected this week. Asked if he believed he done nothing wrong and the allegations were false, Landry said: "Exactly." "I'm here, at training camp, to help my guys get better," Landry said. "I don't want any bad attention to me, this organization, [coach] Adam [Gase], nobody. I don't believe this is the place.........

CORRECTED - Soccer-Flamengo say they have talked to Ronaldo about move

  
(corrects name of Flamengo vice-president to Kleber) MILAN, Dec 31 - Flamengo have held talks with Ronaldo and hope the striker can come to an agreement with AC Milan to allow him to move, the Brazilian club have said. Milan denied last week that they had allowed Ronaldo to speak to Flamengo but the Brazilian side have now said discussions with the European champions are not necessary. "The interest is reciprocal. I have already spoken to Ronaldo, he wants to play with Flamengo," Flamengo's vice-president Kleber Leite was quoted as saying in Monday's Gazzetta Dello Sport. "In two weeks we will present him with a final offer. We have nothing to say to Milan. We will not deal with them. It is up to Ronaldo to...resolve his contract." The 31-year-old Ronaldo, whose Milan contract runs out at the end of the season, has played just one game in this campaign because of nagging leg injuries. He returned to Brazil earlier this month in a bid to recover and Milan hope he will be fit for.........

LaVar Ball gets tech, forfeits game after pulling AAU team off court

  
LaVar Ball pulled his Big Ballers AAU team off the court during a game Saturday after he was whistled for a technical foul for arguing a foul call and uttering a profanity toward a referee. The incident occurred during a playoff game at the Double Pump Best of Summer Tournament in Anaheim, California. The game was ruled a forfeit, giving the victory to the opposing team. Ball's team, which includes his youngest son, LaMelo, was winning 69-60 at the time of the forfeit, according to USA Today Sports. The father of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball?disputed a foul that was called as one of his players went for a steal along the sideline. Immediately after the whistle, Ball repeated, "That's not a foul. That's not a foul. That's not a foul." Then, in an apparent reference to an official who Ball felt was out of position, he said, "He came way over here to call that bulls---." After being issued a technical, Ball motioned toward his players on.........

Alabama transfer Blake Barnett immediately eligible to play for Arizona St.

  
Arizona State quarterback Blake Barnett, a transfer from Alabama, will be immediately eligible to play for the Sun Devils, per an appeal ruling from the NCAA on Tuesday. Barnett, a redshirt sophomore, left Alabama on Sept. 28, four games into the 2016 season, after freshman Jalen Hurts became established as the Crimson Tide's starter. As a transfer, he'd typically be required to sit out a calendar year if not for the ruling, which was first reported by The Arizona Republic. Instead, he will compete with returning starter Manny Wilkins, a junior, to run the Sun Devils' offense in the season opener on Aug. 31 against New Mexico State. Barnett shared his excitement on Twitter after the ruling. Arizona State also this week announced the hiring of Billy Napier as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Napier was Alabama's receivers coach, so he is familiar with Barnett. Barnett, who played at.........

Branden Albert changes mind about retiring, wants to return to Jaguars

  
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Offensive tackle Branden Albert has changed his mind about retiring. He told the Jacksonville Jaguars that he wants to return to the team, but a league source said the team is unlikely to allow him to do so. The Jaguars are currently in Foxborough, Massachusetts, for two days of joint practices with the New England Patriots, and a team spokesman said the Jaguars would not comment on the situation. SiriusXM's Adam Caplan first reported the news of Albert's plan to return. Albert abruptly retired on July 31 just three days into training camp, releasing a statement through the team in which he wished the organization luck and said he looked forward to returning home to Miami to pursue his business interests. He notified the Jaguars on Monday that he wanted to come back. The Jaguars traded their 2018 seventh-round draft pick to Miami in March for the 32-year-old two-time Pro Bowler. The?

Giants' Brandon Marshall addresses Sheldon Richardson comments

  
Brandon Marshall stepped to the podium after New York Giants OTAs and knew what was coming. " Sheldon Richardson questions, go ahead, open up," the Giants wide receiver said, well aware of what Richardson said about him the other day at New York Jets camp. Richardson told reporters: "The locker room is a whole lot easier to get along with now," Asked to elaborate, he smiled and said, "Man oh man, y'all are thirsty. Let's just say I've got 15 reasons why it's better." Fifteen is Marshall's jersey number. He wore it with the Jets and is doing the same after being cut and signing a two-year deal with the Giants this offseason. It wasn't a surprise for Marshall to hear criticism coming from Richardson specifically. They had their run-ins last year, and it had become public. But, he said, it still hurt somewhat to hear it again. "I'm human, so," Marshall explained. "Like I said, the first couple years of my career,.........

When Someone You Love Spirals Out of Control, When Do You Stay and When Do You Go?

  
Though the two are still legally married, Khloe Kardashian left the basketball star after five years together in 2013, reportedly over his struggle with substance abuse and, primarily, his addiction to cocaine. Odom remains in critical condition, still unconscious, with Kardashian by his side after she rushed to Las Vegas upon hearing the news. Earlier this week, University of Southern California football coach Steve Sarkisian was fired, allegedly as a result of his own struggle with alcoholism and his violation of the school's zero-tolerance policy regarding alcohol use. The 41-year-old has three children with his estranged wife.

High School Quarterback's Tragic Death Highlights Silent Danger of an Enlarged Spleen

  
A spleen can become enlarged for many reasons, including genetic diseases, William Katkov, MD, a gastroenterologist at Providence Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, Calif., tells Yahoo Health. Here's why that's a problem: A person may feel better and resume their normal activities, but their enlarged spleen is more susceptible to rupturing and may no longer be protected by their ribcage, leaving it incredibly vulnerable to injury. "An enlarged spleen is at an increased risk for rupture or injury in the setting of normal trauma, like a football game, diving into a pool, or minor car accident," Katkov says. While an enlarged spleen can be asymptomatic, Katkov says a person can feel uncomfortable or have a feeling of fullness in their upper abdomen on the left side.......

Johnny Manziel interested in being college coach if NFL door shut

  
If Johnny Manziel is unable to return to the NFL he still wants to remain in sports, potentially as a coach at the college level. Manziel, attending the International Football Betting Conference in Costa Rica, was asked what he would do if he isn't able to resume his NFL playing career. "I'd do something involved with sports. I can't get away from it," he said. "I've had to ask myself that a little bit as of late over the past year, but at the same time I'd want to be involved in sports in some way, whether it's coaching, whether it's doing something like that. So I think that'd be my route." Asked which level he'd like to coach at, Manziel said: "Probably college." Manziel, 24, was a coach at an Elite 11 quarterback camp in Miami in February. The former? Texas A&M?star said he was "hard-headed" when asked what kind of player he was to coach in college. "I look back right now and think about how big of just a kid I was. And a lot.........

Projected 2017-18 records and standings for every NBA team

  
Who is the biggest threat to the Golden State Warriors? Just how heated will the competition be for playoff spots in the Western Conference, and are there eight playoff-caliber teams in the East? To help answer these questions and more, here's an early look at 2017-18 NBA projections using ESPN's real plus-minus (RPM). Last season, these projections correctly forecast that the Houston Rockets would have home-court advantage in the first round, the Denver Nuggets would challenge .500 and the New York Knicks would stay in the lottery. (They also missed on other teams, including the Milwaukee Bucks' playoff run and the Detroit Pistons' falling out of the postseason.) As in past seasons, I've put together projected playing time based on a formula that estimates games missed by taking into account the number missed over the past three seasons (adjusted for any offseason injuries/suspensions).........

Jets to place Quincy Enunwa on IR with neck injury

  
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- New York Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa, who aggravated a neck injury Saturday night in a practice at MetLife Stadium, will be placed on injured reserve. Jets coach Todd Bowles said Monday that Enunwa has a bulging disk in his neck and is expected to be sidelined for six to nine months. Enunwa will get a second opinion but it is likely he will undergo surgery, Bowles said. Bowles said he didn't believe the injury was a threat to Enunwa's career. A source confirmed that Enunwa will miss the entire season, as the NFL Network first reported. This is a significant setback for the Jets' receiving corps, already the most inexperienced position on the team. Enunwa was slated to be their No. 1 receiver and leader of the group. He led the Jets last season with 857 receiving yards on 58 catches. On Saturday night, Enunwa dropped a pass from Christian Hackenberg during 7-on-7 drills when he took a step.........

Jay Cutler arrives in South Florida for physical, won't play Thursday

  
DAVIE, Fla. -- Miami Dolphins?coach Adam Gase said new quarterback Jay Cutler will not play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Atlanta Falcons. Cutler arrived in South Florida on Monday morning to take a physical and sign a one-year, $10 million contract. He didn't practice, as backup Matt Moore took the first-team reps. Although Cutler won't play Thursday, all indications are that he will soon take over the starting job. "He didn't come out of retirement to stand on the sideline, but he's got a ways to go," Gase said. "He needs to come in here, take a physical and see where he's at." Gase is confident he is getting the same version of Cutler he had two years ago in Chicago. In 2015, Cutler had one of the best years of his career under Gase, throwing for 3,659 yards, 24 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Cutler played just five games last season after suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. He retired in May.........

Jalen Collins: 'I know I let a lot of people down' with PED suspension

  
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons cornerback Jalen Collins apologized for his repeat violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances and his subsequent 10-game suspension, and coach Dan Quinn said the team has yet to decide if Collins will remain on the roster. Collins addressed the media after participating in Monday's practice. "So I addressed the team, talked to DQ, everybody knows what's going on,'' Collins said. "I know I let a lot of people down. Everybody's really disappointed, including myself. This is something that I've been struggling with and that I'm working on it to put behind me. Just ready to move forward.'' Collins, a 2015 second-round draft pick from LSU, was suspended for the first four games of last season for his initial violation of the league's policy on performance enhancing substances. He never disclosed the details behind the first suspension. The latest violation led to the 10-game.........

Bills sign receiver Anquan Boldin to 1-year contract

  
PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills signed veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin on Monday, the team announced. Boldin signed a one-year deal worth $2.75 million with incentives that could add $1.25 million, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Boldin agreed to terms last week but backed out of the deal before deciding to join the Bills this week, sources told Schefter. The Bills hosted Boldin, who remained unsigned as an unrestricted free agent, on a visit July 24. Boldin, 36, is expected to compete for the Bills' No. 2 receiver role opposite Sammy Watkins. Through 10 practices of training camp, that role has been filled by veteran Andre Holmes, who signed a three-year, $5.15 million contract in March. Rookie second-round pick Zay Jones has also seen considerable practice time with the first-team offense. Boldin has experience with Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor, having played for the Baltimore Ravens in 2011 and 2012,.........

Dolphins' Jarvis Landry under investigation for possible battery

  
Miami Dolphins?star wide receiver Jarvis Landry is under police investigation for possible battery stemming from an incident that took place earlier this year. The Fort Lauderdale Police Department has presented its investigation to the Broward State Attorney's office, which is reviewing the incident. A spokesman for the state attorney told multiple media outlets on Monday that a decision on whether to press charges against Landry is not expected this week. Dolphins coach Adam Gase acknowledged earlier Monday that the team is aware of the incident. Gase told reporters that the Dolphins have taken the proper steps regarding the situation but declined to comment further. The Dolphins' front office notified the NFL when it became aware of the investigation in the spring, team sources told ESPN's Jeff Darlington. Landry was up front with the team, as far as they know, as soon as the alleged incident occurred.? Landry and the Dolphins have been.........
