LOS ANGELES (AP) – Alex Karras, who gained fame in the NFL as a fearsome defensive lineman and later as an actor, has died. He was 77. Craig Mitnick, Karras’ attorney, said Karras died at home in Los Angeles on Wednesday, surrounded by family. Karras had been suffering from dementia. He was among the more than 3,500 NFL players suing the league regarding the treatment of head injuries.
Detroit drafted Karras, who grew up in Gary, Ind., 10th overall in 1958 out of Iowa and he was a four-time All-Pro defensive tackle over 12 seasons with the franchise. Karras may be even better known for his work as an actor. He portrayed an adoptive dad in the 1980s sitcom “Webster,” and punched a horse in the 1974 comedy classic “Blazing Saddles.”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A Nashville judge is delaying the public intoxication and vandalism case against two-time Olympic gold medalist snowboarder Shaun White. White is accused of destroying a phone at a Nashville hotel and hitting his head, which required him to go to the hospital. Officers responded to the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel at 2 a.m. on Sept. 16 after a drunken man identified as White pulled a fire alarm, forcing the hotel to evacuate guests.
White won a gold medal in Turin at the 2006 Olympics and in 2010 at the Vancouver Games. He is an action sports superstar, whether skateboarding during the summer or snowboarding in the winter. The 26-year-old White is also a multimillionaire with a clothing line and video game. A judge delayed the case Wednesday until Nov. 20.

SOELDEN, Austria (AP) – Bode Miller is skipping the opening race of the World Cup season to rest his surgically repaired left knee.
Miller’s equipment supplier says the skier, who had knee surgery eight months ago, will travel to Soelden, Austria, for training but won’t compete in the race on Oct. 28. Head’s race director Rainer Salzgeber tells the Austria Press Agency on Wednesday that “Soelden is no option for Miller, he has not been able to practice a single giant slalom turn so far.” Salzgeber says the two-time overall World Cup champion won’t compete until the speed races Nov. 24-25 in Lake Louise, Alberta.

NEW YORK (AP) – The NHL and the players’ association are talking again as the lockout reaches its 25th day. The sides are meeting Wednesday in New York. On Friday, they held an unannounced meeting in Toronto to discuss where they were and how to move the process forward. Officials on both sides were in contact Saturday and Sunday, leading to the meetings. The NHL canceled the first two weeks of the regular season Thursday, wiping out 82 games from Oct. 11-24.
