BENGALS-COLTS

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Andrew Luck threw two touchdown passes and the Colts' defense dominated Cincinnati in Sunday's 27-0 victory.

Luck was 27 of 42 for 344 yards as Indianapolis (5-2) won its fifth straight. It was Indy's first shutout since December 2008.

Cincinnati (3-2-1), which hasn't won since starting 3-0, endured its first shutout since December 2009 and had a franchise record tying 11 punts Sunday. Andy Dalton was 18 of 38 for 126 yards.

Indy churned out 506 yards, struck early and pulled away late.

Bradshaw's 1-yard TD run made it 10-0 in the second quarter and Luck threw two second-half TD passes to make it 24-0.

Colts linebacker Erik Walden was ejected in the first half for making contact with umpire Bruce Stritesky.

COLTS-WALDEN EJECTED

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Colts linebacker Erik Walden was ejected from the Cincinnati game after making contact with umpire Bruce Stritesky late in the first half.

He was assessed a 15-yard personal foul penalty and escorted to the sideline by referee Gene Steratore. The play gave Cincinnati its initial first down of the half with 48 seconds to go.

Walden was in the middle of the field and appeared to have one arm raised across from a Bengals player. But the other arm appeared to be in the chest of Stritesky between the players.

A flag was immediately thrown. At halftime, Colts coach Chuck Pagano told a local radio station he thought it was accidental but that he had not seen it.

NFL-INJURIES

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -- San Francisco 49ers center Daniel Kilgore is scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery on Tuesday.

Kilgore fractured his left ankle in the third quarter of last night's 42-17 loss at Denver. He was carted off after linebacker Brandon Marshall inadvertently ran into his lower leg at the end of a run by Frank Gore.

Rookie Marcus Martin is the favorite to fill in for Kilgore. Martin recently returned to practice following a training camp knee injury.

Martin's NFL debut would likely be Nov. 2 at home against the Rams after the bye.

In other NFL injury news:

-- The Buffalo Bills are down two running backs. C.J. Spiller has had surgery to repair a collarbone injury, and it's uncertain if his season is over. Earlier in the day Fred Jackson said he expects to be out for about four weeks with a groin injury. Jackson told WGR radio that doctors gave him that prognosis. Both were hurt in the Bills' 17-16 win Sunday over the Vikings.

-- Washington linebacker Brian Orakpo will miss the rest of the season because he needs surgery on a torn right pectoral muscle. He's a three-time Pro Bowl selection.

WORLD SERIES-STARTERS

KANSAS CITY (AP) -- The wait is almost over. The opening game of the World Series is just a day away.

Game 1 for the Giants and Royals will be played tomorrow night in Kansas City, with James Shields taking the mound for the home team against NLCs most valuable player Madison Bumgarner. Shields is getting the opening game assignment for the third time this post season, while Bumgarner hasn't allowed a postseason run away from home in an MLB-record 26 2/3 innings. That record goes back to 2010.

The Royals advanced with a four-game sweep of the Orioles in the American League Championship Series while the Giants eliminated the Cardinals in five games to win the NLCS.

Game 2 in the best-of-seven series will be Wednesday night in Kansas City before the series moves to San Francisco.

WORLD SERIES-ANTHEMS

NEW YORK (AP) -- Trisha Yearwood and Carlos Santana are among the musicians set to perform the national anthem during the World Series. According to Major League Baseball, Yearwood will sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" before Game 1 Tuesday night and Santana will perform an instrumental rendition of the national anthem with his son before Game 4 on Saturday at the AT&T Park in San Francisco.

NHL-FLAMES

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -- The Calgary Flames have signed defenseman T.J. Brodie to a five-year contract extension. Brodie is in the final year of a two-year deal that paid him an average annual salary of $2.1 million. The 24-year-old has three goals and four assists in seven games this season for the Flames.

The defenseman has 11 goals and 66 points in 192 games.

NBA-STERLING/LAWSUIT

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A judge has dismissed a defamation lawsuit by Donald Sterling's mistress against the estranged wife of the former Los Angeles Clippers owner.

Judge Richard Fruin issued a tentative ruling last week saying he planned to allow the suit, but he reconsidered after arguments from Shelly Sterling's lawyer. The judge found V. Stiviano presented no evidence to support her claim that Shelly Sterling called her a thief and an embezzler in media reports.

NHL-KINGS

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The NHL has suspended Slava Voynov indefinitely after the Los Angeles Kings defenseman was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. Police say Voynov was booked and released after his arrest early this morning at a Torrance hospital on suspicion of corporal injury to a spouse. The Kings issued a statement saying they support the league's decision and will take appropriate action throughout the legal proceedings and the NHL investigation.

HOCKEY-LAWSUIT

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The consolidated class-action lawsuit by former NHL players against the league over concussion-related injuries has been filed in federal court.

The complaint was filed in Minnesota, where the case already had been assigned to U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson. It's a combination of several previously filed lawsuits.

The six former players serving as class representatives are seeking a jury trial for unspecified financial damages and NHL-funded medical monitoring for neurological disorders. Dan LaCouture (lah-koo-TOOR'), Michael Peluso, Gary Leeman, Bernie Nicholls, David Christian and Reed Larson all played 10 or more NHL seasons.
