Kansas places Miles on administrative leave after LSU report
Then-Athletic Director Joe Alleva's recommendation to former LSU President F. King Alexander is detailed in a newly released report into how the university handled sexual misconduct complaints. AdEarlier in the day, LSU released a law firm's 148-page review of how the university has handled sexual misconduct complaints. The report offers a scathing view of the resources and attention LSU has dedicated to complaints of sexual misconduct and violence against women campus-wide. Schneider found that LSU leadership “responded in a lackluster fashion” when officials who handled Title IX compliance requested more resources. Victims are “understandably reluctant to participate in the Title IX process because they fear community backlash,” Schneider said.
Washington releases Adrian Peterson, turns to young backs
Washington released veteran running back Adrian Peterson on Friday, a stunning move by first-year coach Ron Rivera in the name of getting younger. Rivera called Peterson early in the morning asking him to come to the practice facility, then delivered the news the team was moving on from the 35-year-old star. Peterson played the past two seasons with Washington, rushing for 1,940 yards and 12 touchdowns in the fourth stop of a career that will likely earn him a spot in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Now, after Guice's release following a domestic violence arrest, he, Peterson and longtime third-down back Chris Thompson are all gone, and the backfield has a decidedly young look. This is a very talented, gifted young man that did a lot of different things, Rivera said Thursday.

Keenum sharp for Redskins in loss as Peterson benched
PHILADELPHIA, PA - SEPTEMBER 08: Case Keenum #8 of the Washington Redskins talks to Carson Wentz #11 of the Philadelphia Eagles after the game at Lincoln Financial Field on September 8, 2019 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Eagles defeatedPHILADELPHIA - PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Case Keenum looked the guy who almost led the Minnesota Vikings to the Super Bowl until the Philadelphia Eagles stopped him cold in the NFC title game two years ago. Keenum had his way for a half this time, but Philadelphia's defense toughened up and got the same result Sunday. Starting his first game for the Washington Redskins, Keenum was efficient early, made big plays and helped the team build a 17-0 lead, only to see the defense let it crumble in a 32-27 loss. "We made some mistakes, shot ourselves in the foot, had a couple penalties," Keenum said.

RICHMOND, Va. - Its day two of Washington Redskins training camp in Richmond as the team prepares for a fresh start in 2019.

Washington added veteran Peterson to the mix and watched him run for more than 1,000 yards. And with a clean bill of health, the Redskins know this could be a dangerous group of guys coming out of the backfield.
