LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- The NCAA has talked with Ohio State freshman JaQuan Lyle, whose recruitment by Louisville is mentioned in a book by an escort alleging that strippers danced and had sex with Cardinals players and prospects.

OSU spokesman Dan Wallenberg confirmed via email that Lyle met Tuesday with the NCAA, as first reported Wednesday by Yahoo Sports. The email did not mention Louisville, but noted there were no issues at Ohio State.

Former Cardinals forward Chane Behanan didn't have must to say Wednesday about allegations in Katina Powell's book, "Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen," that he participated in shows paid for by former basketball staffer Andre McGee.

Behanan says, "all I know is what I've heard" in the book, in which he is pictured with Powell.


WHITEHOUSE, Texas (AP) -- Fire officials say a blaze that destroyed an East Texas home belonging to the grandfather of Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel appears to be suspicious.

Smith County Fire Marshal Jay Brooks says crews were called early Wednesday morning to the fire at a house near Lake Tyler that's owned by Paul Manziel, Johnny Manziel's grandfather.

Brooks says no one was at the house at the time. He says no one had been there for the past two days.

He says evidence indicates foul pay may have been involved. Brooks says -- in his words -- "We have recovered evidence that points to suspicion."

He says the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Explosives is joining the investigation, assisted by an accelerant-sniffing dog.


OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -- The absence of two veteran receivers and his go-to tight end won't change a thing for Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.

Facing the Cleveland Browns on Sunday in an important AFC North matchup, the Ravens (1-3) will be without leading receiver Steve Smith and speedy Michael Campanaro, both of whom were injured last Thursday night in a win over the Steelers.

Tight end Crockett Gilmore, who has 10 catches for 151 yards and two touchdowns, missed practice Wednesday with a strained calf.

That leaves Flacco with less-heralded wide receivers Kamar Aiken, Marlon Brown and Chris Givens. The primary tight ends are rookies Maxx Williams and Nick Boyle.

Flacco says, "It's my job to see whoever the guy is that's open and give him a chance to make the catch."


BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns coach Mike Pettine called the criticism directed at Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden for not playing in Sunday's game because of a broken finger "unwarranted."

Pettine said he spoke with Haden, who tested his finger during pregame warmups before choosing not to play. Pettine said he's partially responsible for the condemnation toward Haden because he didn't do an adequate job explaining why his top defensive player decided to sit out Cleveland's 30-27 loss.

Pettine said he misspoke and that Haden "wanted to be out there, he wanted to play," but felt he wasn't 100 percent and would have put the team at risk. Pettine called Haden "one of the faces of our franchise."

The Browns have provided a written explanation to the NFL, which is investigating why Haden didn't play after being listed as "probable" on the injury report.


ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- The Buffalo Bills have shaken up their special teams by signing veteran kicker Billy Cundiff and releasing kickoff specialist Jordan Gay.

The Bills also released returner Marcus Thigpen and signed receiver Denarius Moore on Wednesday.

Cundiff replaces Gay on kickoff duties, and his arrival poses a threat to veteran kicker Dan Carpenter. Carpenter has been erratic since the start of the preseason while nursing assorted injuries.

He has missed two of seven field-goal attempts, including a 30-yarder in a 24-10 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday. Carpenter has also missed an extra point.

Cundiff is a 12-year NFL veteran who spent the past two seasons in Cleveland. He was cut by the Browns after missing seven of 29 field-goal attempts, including three from within 39 yards.

UNDATED (AP) -- David Price played a major role in the Toronto Blue Jays' late-season surge to the AL East title, but he didn't have his best stuff in Game 1 of the division series this afternoon.

Price served up a pair of homers while allowing five runs in seven innings of the Jays' 5-3 loss to the Texas Rangers. Robinson Chirinos (chih-REE'-nohs) nicked the lefty for a two-run shot and Rougned Odor (oh-DOOR') belted a solo homer. Chirinos put the Rangers ahead 4-1 in the fifth, but the Blue Jays got within 4-3 before Odor went deep to complete the scoring.

Yovani Gallardo (yoh-VAH'-nee gy-YAHR'-doh) allowed two runs and four hits in five innings to improve to 4-0 with a 1.78 ERA in four career starts against Toronto. Keone Kela (kee-OH'-nee KEH'-luh), Jake Diekman (DEEK'-man) and Sam Dyson finished, with Dyson getting a save.

Neither team had its starting third baseman on the field by the end of the game. The Rangers had to take out Adrian Beltre (BEHL'-tray) in the third with a sore lower back, two innings before Toronto's Josh Donaldson came out. Donaldson was kneed in the head while sliding in an attempt to break up a double play.

Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista had to leave the game after the eighth inning due to hamstring tightness.

Game 2 is tomorrow afternoon in Toronto, where Marcus Stroman will pitch for the Blue Jays against Rangers ace Cole Hamels. The Rangers have won Hamels' last 10 starts, scoring at least four runs each time.

Looking ahead, the Rangers have announced that left-hander Martin Perez will be the starter against Toronto's Marc Estrada for Game 3 in Arlington. Texas has not selected a starter for Game 4.

In Kansas City, the Central Division-champion Royals are entertaining the wild card-winning Astros. The game currently is in a rain delay with the Astros leading 3-1 through two innings.

The Astros scored twice in the top of the first on RBI grounders by Colby Rasmus and Evan Gattis. Jose Altuve's RBI single put Houston up 3-0 in the top of the second before Kendrys (KEHN'-drees) Morales homered to pull the Royals within 3-1.

Houston advanced with that 3-0 wild card game win Tuesday night over the Yankees in New York. The pitching matchup for the opening game of the best-of-five series has 19-game winner Collin McHugh toeing the rubber for the Astros against Yordano Ventura, who was 13-8.

Play in the National League Divisional series playoffs begins tomorrow with the Cardinals entertaining the Cubs, and the Dodgers, the Mets.

In news from the Cardinals' camp, All-Star catcher Yadier Molina (YAH'-dee-ay moh-LEE'-nah) is on the St. Louis roster for the NL division series against the Cubs. He'll be able to play wearing a splint to protect a strained ligament in his left thumb.


HOUSTON (AP) -- Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck is inactive for tonight's game against the Houston Texans because of a right shoulder injury.

It's the second straight game Luck has sat out after not missing a game in his career before last week.

Matt Hasselbeck started in his place in a matchup of AFC South foes. The 40-year-old Hasselbeck threw for 282 yards with one touchdown in a 16-13 overtime win over the Jaguars on Sunday.

Josh Johnson will be Hasselbeck's backup.

The Colts have dominated the AFC South with nine division titles since 2002 and a 15-game winning streak against division foes. The streak actually began with a Colts victory over Houston in the 2012 season finale

The Texans benched quarterback Brian Hoyer in favor of Ryan Mallett after Week 1, but Mallett was back on the bench late in Houston's blowout loss to Atlanta on Sunday. Despite his struggles, Mallett will start this evening's game.


DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle has been fired by new interim coach Dan Campbell and replaced by defensive backs coach Lou Anarumo. The moves came after the Dolphins fired head coach Joe Philbin on Monday and promoted tight ends coach Campbell.

Coyle was widely criticized for the decline of the defense since he joined the Dolphins in 2012. They gave up 317 points that season, followed by 335 and 373, and after four games they're on pace to allow 404 this season.


ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) -- Former Green Bay Packers' coach Lindy Infante (ihn-FAHN'-tay) has died in Florida at age 75. His wife told The Associated Press that he passed away Thursday in St. Augustine after a lengthy illness.

Infante coached the Packers from 1988 to 1991, winning Coach of the Year honors in 1989 after leading the Packers to a 10-6 record.

He was hired by the Indianapolis Colts in 1996, leading the team to the playoffs in his first season. He was fired after the 1997 when the Colts fell to 3-13. His overall NFL record was 36-60. He also served as an offensive coordinate in the league.

Infante played college football at Florida from 1960 to 1962.


INCHEON, South Korea (AP) -- The U.S. leads the International team 4-1 after foursomes at the Presidents Cup in Incheon, South Korea.

The International team was adamant that the number of matches be reduced from 34 to 30, to keep it a close contest. After one day, maybe having one less match on Thursday helped.

The Americans have lost the Presidents Cup only once since it began in 1994 and are going for their sixth straight victory.
