BROWNS-GORDON

NEW YORK (AP) -- A person with knowledge of the meeting tells The Associated Press that Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon will have a hearing with NFL officials in New York on Aug. 1.

Gordon was arrested this month on charges of driving while intoxicated after speeding down a street in Raleigh, North Carolina. He was released on bail.

The 23-year-old player was suspended for two games last season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. He still led the league with 1,646 yards receiving.

Gordon also reportedly failed another drug test during the offseason, which could lead to a season-long or indefinite ban. In May, he was ticketed for speeding, and a passenger in his car was cited for marijuana possession.

KELLY-HALL OF FAME

CANTON, Ohio (AP) -- Former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, who is recovering from cancer treatments, will participate in the coin toss at the Hall of Fame game on Aug. 3.

The Hall of Famer will represent Buffalo as an honorary captain, while former linebacker Harry Carson will be the New York Giants' honorary captain when the teams face off in the first NFL preseason game.

Kelly, inducted into the hall in 2002, in May completed radiation and chemotherapy sessions to treat sinus cancer, which spread from his jaw.

Kelly's top receiver, Andre Reed, is among the seven members of the hall's class this year.

"I have always said that God willing, I will be back in Canton every summer," Kelly said. "This year especially, I am so thankful that I can be on hand..."

CAVALIERS-WIGGINS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cavaliers have signed No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Wiggins, a contract that prevents him from being traded for 30 days.

Wiggins has been linked to a possible blockbuster trade with Minnesota for All-Star forward Kevin Love. But any deal now involving Wiggins can't be finalized for at least 30 days.

The Cavs had been reluctant to include Wiggins in a package for Love, but the team has softened its stance and may be willing to part with the former Kansas standout.

Cleveland is interested in bringing in Love to form a "Big 3" with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. That trio would make the Cavs an overwhelming favorite in the Eastern Conference.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The New York Yankees beat Toronto 6-4, handing Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle (BUR'-lee) his 12th loss in 13 career decisions against the Yanks. The Blue Jays have lost 17 straight at Yankee Stadium in a streak dating to 2012.

Ichiro Suzuki (EE'-cheer-oh soo-ZOO'-kee) homered for the first time since last August. The Yanks have won seven of eight since the All-Star break.

The bright spot for Toronto was two home runs by Jose Bautista. He's reached the 20-homer plateau for the fifth straight year. He also doubled and drove in four.

In other baseball:

-- The Tampa Bay Rays won their eighth in a row, 6-4 over Boston. David Price won his sixth start in a row and improved to 11-7. Evan Longoria hit a three-run double.

-- Denard (deh-NAHRD') Span had his second straight four-hit game, scored a run and had an RBI in Washington's 4-1 victory over Cincinnati. The Reds have lost a season-worst seven in a row. Tanner Roark won his 10th game with seven strong innings.

-- Philadelphia worked over Arizona 9-5. Domonic Brown hit a homer and drove in three.

-- Luis Valbuena (vahl-BWAY'-noh) cracked a decisive two-run homer in the seventh inning and the Chicago Cubs overcame a three-run deficit to hand the St. Louis Cardinals the fourth straight loss, 7-6. The teams combined for five home runs and 23 hits with the wind blowing out at Wrigley Field.

NFL-TRAINING CAMPS

UNDATED (AP) -- Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel (man-ZEHL') acknowledged he's "made some rookie mistakes" during the offseason, but doesn't think his partying has hurt his chances of winning a starting job.

Manzeil was speaking on the eve of Cleveland's first training camp practice, Manziel briefly addressed his fraternity-guy-gone-wild behavior during the past two months.

In other football news:

-- Jim Irsay was back at one of his favorite hangouts Friday -- the Indianapolis Colts' training camp -- and he's hoping to stick around a while longer. The 55-year-old Colts owner did not discuss his looming DWI court case or NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's pending decision or any potential punishments stemming from his March arrest.

-- Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton says that while his surgically repaired ankle is getting better, it's not completely healed. The Pro Bowl QB participated in his first full practice Friday night at Fan Fest since undergoing surgery in March. Newton looked sharp throwing passes but struggled with his timing on handoffs.

-- Sam Bradford is trying to forget all about his surgically repaired left knee. Except for a brace, the St. Louis Rams have no restrictions in training camp for their quarterback. The first overall pick of the 2010 draft missed the last nine games last season and is a key to a franchise seeking a breakthrough season.

-- The Atlanta Falcons have waived wide receiver Darius Johnson. He made a surprising contribution last season after star receiver Julio Jones went down with a season-ending injury. Johnson played in 10 games with two starts, making 22 catches for 210 yards and one touchdown.

-- A judge has convicted Dallas Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct in his Alabama hometown. McClain has been sentenced to an 18-day jail term that could interrupt his bid to restart his career.

NBA-HAWKS-PAYNE

ATLANTA (AP) -- The Atlanta Hawks have signed Adreian Payne who was the team's first-round pick last month. The 6-foot-10 power forward from Michigan State was the 15th overall pick in the draft.

Payne averaged 12.5 points and seven rebounds while starting all six games for the Hawks' Las Vegas summer league team this month.

He finished his college career as Michigan State's career leader with 141 blocked shots. He averaged 16.4 points and 7.3 rebounds as a senior.

Terms of the deal were not released.

CHAMPIONS TOUR-SENIOR BRITISH OPEN

PORTHCAWL, Wales (AP) -- Bernhard Langer (LAHN'-gur) followed up his Thursday 6-under 65 with a second round 5-under 66 to grab the midway lead in the British Senior Open at 11-under. The German tops Chris Williams of England, who shot a second-round 1-under 70 to stand 4-under for the tournament, and Scotland's Colin (KAH'-lihn) Montgomerie, who shot a 66 to finish at 4-under as well.

PGA-CANADIAN OPEN

MONTREAL (AP) -- Two-time champ Jim Furyk (FYOOR'-ihk) shot a course record 7-under 63 to grab a share of the lead in the second round of the Canadian Open. Furyk is at 10-under par, tied with Tim Petrovic (peh-TROH'-vihk) who shot 66.

Graham DeLaet (deh-LEHT') played in the same group as Furyk and also shot a record-tying 63 and is two shots off the pace. He's trying to become the first Canadian in 60 years to win his country's national championship.

LPGA-INTERNATIONAL CROWN

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -- The teams of Lexi Thompson and Cristie Kerr along with Paula Creamer and Stacy Lewis scored wins for the United States over Spain in the LPGA International Crown. The victories come a day after the top-seeded U.S. lost twice to Taiwan and was the only country without a point. The Americans will finish off better ball play against Thailand Saturday, trying to earn a spot in the singles matches Sunday that will determine the winner.

NHL-MAPLE LEAFS-REIMER

TORONTO (AP) -- Goalie James Reimer (RY'-mur) and the Toronto Maple Leafs have agreed to a two-year contract, avoiding salary arbitration.

Reimer lost the starting job to Jonathan Bernier (BURN'-yay) last season, but was forced into service late in the season after Bernier sustained a knee injury.

Reimer was 12-16-1 with a 3.29 goals-against average last season. In four seasons with Toronto, he's 65-48-15 with a 2.85 GAA.

COOPER-CANCER

ATLANTA (AP) -- Michael Cooper, who was part of five NBA championship teams with the Lakers, has had surgery for tongue cancer. The 58-year old is the current head coach of the WNBA Atlanta Dream and is a former head coach of the WNBA Los Angeles Sparks.

The Dream report that Thursday's procedure was successful and Cooper "will be back coaching soon."
