NFL Reinstates Myles Garrett From Suspension
The NFL reinstated Brown’s defensive end Myles Garrett two days after his meeting with the commissioner. Originally, Garrett was suspended for ripping off Steelers QB Mason Rudolph helmet and hitting him with it on November 14th. Despite Garrett’s appeal, in which he claimed Rudolph called him a racial slur, the NFL upheld the suspension. In turn, this caused Myles Garrett to miss the last six games of the season.
“We welcome Myles back to our organization with open arms,” Browns general manager Andrew Berry said in a statement. “[The team] knows he is grateful to be reinstated, eager to put the past behind him and continue to evolve and grow as a leader. We look forward to having his strong positive presence back as a teammate, player, and person in our community.”
Blue Jays Confirm Knowledge Of McGuire’s Arrest
The Toronto Blue Jays announced that they are investigating catcher Reese McGuire’s recent arrest. Police arrested McGuire after he allegedly exposed himself in an SUV outside a Florida strip mall. In addition, police reports say that McGuire didn’t deny the allegations and was completely cooperative.
“The Blue Jays are aware of the recent police incident involving catcher Reese McGuire,” the team said in a statement. “He has been in communication with the club and we are working to gather more information. Out of respect for the legal process, neither he nor the club will comment any further at this time.”
Damian Lillard Out Of All-Star Game
Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard is out of the All-Star game due to a groin injury. “Obviously, that’s something you look forward to,” Lillard said. “Those festivities and having fun, but my health is first”. Lillard planned to play at the game on Sunday. However, he does still plan to attend the game. The NBA has yet to announce his replacement.
“I don’t think it makes sense to try and force myself to be out there and doing stuff just so I can not miss out on it,” Lillard continued. “I’ve been there, I’ve done it all before, and I’m sure I’ll have more opportunities to do it, but I wanna make sure that I’m healthy so that when the break is over, I’m rested and have done all I can do to be ready as soon as possible.”

Kyle Busch Has Done Everything- Except For Winning The Daytona 500
Kyle Busch has won races across the nation, from Darlington to Bristol. However, he has never taken home a win at the Daytona 500, where he is 0-14. This race is the last thing he needs to fill a huge list of accomplishments, which includes two Cup championships. “The whole aspect of having one item not checked is not that big of a deal,” Busch said. “It’s not going to end my career by any means.”
