Thursday’s Sports in Brief

Friday, January 11th, 2019

Andy Murray is still hoping to make it to one more Wimbledon tournament before his problematic hip forces him into retirement. In an emotional news conference Friday, when a tearful Murray had to leave the room shortly after his first attempt to get it started, and needed to pause several times to compose himself once it had resumed, he confirmed he'd play his first-round match at the Australian Open next week but wasn't sure how much longer he could continue beyond that. The 31-year-old Murray said he practiced in the off-season with the main goal of making one last run at Wimbledon, where he ended the 77-year drought for British men with his title in 2013, but now wasn't sure he'd make it that far.

Eric Reid’s lawyers reject NFL/NFLPA findings regarding random PED testing

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

In response to the findings of a joint NFL/NFLPA investigation regarding Panthers safety Eric Reid's allegation that he was targeted for random PED testing, his lawyers have communicated to the league and the union their objection to the conclusion that Reid's random PED tests were anything other than truly random. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that Reid's lawyers contend that Reid was randomly tested at least seven times, and that some of the dates appearing in the NFL/NFLPA report were incorrect. If Reid's suspicions are correct, it means that the NFL somehow corrupted the independent testing procedures — and it now means that the NFL and NFLPA jointly have generated and disseminated false information about the number of times he was tested in order to cover it all up.
