Officially, Dallas Cowboy Sean Lee did not practice because of a hamstring injury suffered late in the win against the New York Giants. Lee went through the early portion of practice that was open to the media. After the Giants’ game, Lee said he felt he would be able to play against Seattle and the cramping was unrelated to the issues that caused him to miss five games last season.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin on Wednesday disciplined All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown for missing work Monday. “He and I met yesterday for an extended period of time,” Tomlin said after Wednesday’s practice. “I’ll leave the nature of that conversation between us. There was discipline involved for his missed meeting on Monday.” Tomlin did not field questions. Brown is scheduled to address the media Thursday.
The Texas Rangers beat out Milwaukee and Washington to place their Triple-A affiliate in Nashville on a four-year deal. This ends an eight-year deal the Rangers has with Round Rock.
And on the diamond, the Rangers fell to the Rays 9–3. In the loss, Adrian Beltre homered. That homer put Beltre in 30th place all-time tied with Stan Musial and Willie Stargell. The Rangers are off tonight before starting the final home series of the year Friday against the Mariners.
