Pack losing top two receivers?

The injury bug is running through Green Bay, and it threatens to claim two of Aaron Rodgers' top targets. Even before Greg Jennings announced Thursday that he was going to have surgery on his lower abdomen, the Green Bay Packers knew he wouldn't play Sunday. They didn't know, however, that Jordy Nelson might not either. Jennings and Nelson, the Packers' top two receivers heading into this season, are part of the injury epidemic that has hit the team at this point in the season. They were two of the five starters who were not able to take part in preparations for the Jacksonville Jaguars. ... Nelson won't be able to practice the rest of this week because of a hamstring pull he suffered in practice Wednesday. (Journal Sentinel) Comment

Brewers eyeing Josh Hamilton

Milwaukee hasn't been shy about making plays for big-name players in recent years, and they may be ready to pitch to another. [The Brewers] are seriously considering a run at superstar free-agent outfielder Josh Hamilton, according to people familiar with their thinking. The Brewers believe Milwaukee is a viable market for Hamilton, and it doesn't hurt that their hitting coach is Johnny Narron, who is very close to Hamilton from their days together in Cincinnati and Texas. Narron was Hamilton's original "life coach" with the Reds and Rangers. In Texas he generally thrived and is credited for having only two relapses. Brewers owner Mark Attanasio declined comment on a possible try for Hamilton. (CBS Sports) Comment

Auburn in line for house-cleaning?

President Jay Gogue's statement on the university's website didn't have to mention Gene Chizik by name to make an impact. Just as ominously, Gogue's open letter openly acknowledged that the president has heard the complaints from the fan base about the 1-6 start. ... Does this mean that Gogue finally gets it? Does a president whose previous stops as a CEO were at New Mexico State and Houston finally understand the importance of football at Auburn after 5 years there? Does he now realize that his football program is speeding toward an abyss it hasn't experienced since the Doug Barfield era? Does Gogue get that, more than a coaching change, Auburn needs a regime change in its athletics department? (al.com) Comment
