KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy would not say whether he would have an interest in the vacant head-coaching position at USC."I am where my feet are,'' Bieniemy said Thursday as the Chiefs continued their preparation for Sunday night's game at the Baltimore Ravens. "When it's all said and done, I am focused on the task at hand. I'm not worried about anything, where my name is being mentioned. My job right now is to make sure that we're preparing for this weekend's opponent."If USC reached out to me right now, my answer would be 'I am preparing for this team to play against the Baltimore Ravens.' That's how I roll ... My job is to make sure that we're ready to play a complete, sound, 60-minute football game so that we can come out and win the game.''

CINCINNATI -- Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins has made up his mind: This will be the last season he wears No. 85.Initially, Higgins told Pro Football Focus' "Fantasy Football Podcast" that he would switch to No. 5, his college number, if he scored 10 touchdowns this season. However, he removed that qualifier Thursday and said the change will happen in large part because of another No. 85 who used to play for the Bengals: Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson."I keep seeing on Twitter, 'Ochocinco 2.0,'" Higgins said. "I don't want to be a 2.0. No disrespect to Chad. He's a great receiver, this and that. I just don't want to be a 2.0 for myself, man. I want to be Tee Higgins, 1.0, No. 5."Johnson was one of the most colorful and prolific players in team history. In addition to legally changing his last name to Ochocinco at one point and being known for his touchdown celebrations, he also leads the franchise in several career categories, including receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns.

CHICAGO -- Two-way star Shohei Ohtani won't pitch Friday for the Los Angeles Angels because of a sore right arm that could sideline him as a pitcher for the rest of the season."If there's any kind of lingering soreness, you may not see him pitch," Angels manager Joe Maddon said before Thursday's game against the Chicago White Sox.Ohtani (9-2, 3.36 ERA) felt soreness while playing catch Wednesday. Maddon said he raised the possibility of the likely American League MVP being shut down on the mound for the rest of the season during a meeting.Maddon said there were no plans for Ohtani to be examined by a doctor, nor has it been determined when he would try to resume playing catch.Ohtani, 27, hasn't pitched since Sept. 10, when he was tagged for six runs on nine hits in 3⅓ innings in a loss at Houston.

Deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Thursday the NHL expects 98% of players to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the start of the season.The league projects that only between 10 and 15 of roughly 700 players will not be vaccinated by the time the season begins Oct. 12. The league and NHL Players' Association did not impose a vaccine mandate on players, but restrictions -- including the potential of not being able to cross the border from the U.S. into Canada without a lengthy quarantine -- contributed to the number."We weren't really trying to convince each other one way or the other," Los Angeles defenseman Drew Doughty said. "But then I think when the NHL released that statement that you lose pay and stuff like that, that kind of changed some guys' minds."

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- The injuries continue to relentlessly pile up for the Baltimore Ravens just two weeks into the regular season.Ravens backup cornerback Chris Westry is expected to miss at least a month with a torn lateral meniscus, a source told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler on Thursday. Westry was third among the team's cornerbacks with 33 snaps played in Monday's loss to Las Vegas.The Ravens lost Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Peters to a season-ending knee injury last week.If Westry is placed on injured reserve, he would become the 15th player to go on IR this year for Baltimore -- and the ninth player over the past 24 days.The Ravens worked out four cornerbacks Tuesday, including veteran Buster Skrine. The cornerbacks on the active roster are Marlon Humphrey, Anthony Averett, Jimmy Smith and Tavon Young. Smith (ankle) didn't play in the opener and has been limited in practice this week.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants offense and quarterback Daniel Jones will be working with a new center on Thursday night against the Washington Football Team with the plan being for recently-acquired Billy Price to get the start while Nick Gates slides over to left guard, according to multiple sources.Gates started all 16 games last season and Week 1 this year at center. He has started one game in the NFL at guard, Week 15 of the 2019 season in a 36-20 win over the Miami Dolphins in the last start Eli Manning's career. Running back Saquon Barkley rushed for 112 yards and two touchdowns in that contest.The shifting on the Giants' offensive line is a result of starting left guard Shane Lemieux being sidelined by a knee injury. Lemieux tried to play through the injury in the opener but failed to make it through the first half. His season is now in jeopardy.

Heather Knight made 89 as England claimed a 30-run win over New Zealand in the first ODI of the five-match series at Bristol.The England captain put on 65 with Tammy Beaumont (44) before a middle-order collapse saw the hosts slip from 109-1 to 140-5, but a stand of 88 with Katherine Brunt (43) rescued the innings and meant New Zealand were left chasing 242 for victory.Early wickets from Nat Sciver and Kate Cross reduced the White Ferns to 31-3 in reply and when the latter dismissed Sophie Devine (34) to end a 78-run partnership with Amy Satterthwaite (79no), the tourists quickly faded.New Zealand were given some hope when Lea Tahuhu came in at No 10 and thumped 25 from 14 balls and a last-wicket stand between Satterthwaite and Leigh Kasperek (15) might just have had England a little concerned before the No 11 was run out with the visitors still 30 short of their target.

If you’re going to use a Tom Brady quote, you better credit him properly.1. As we have noted many times in Traina Thoughts and on the SI Media Podcast in recent months, the Tampa Bay version of Tom Brady has been willing to show us more of his personality than he ever did in New England, and it’s been downright delightful.Several weeks ago, we told you about Brady “finding his voice.” Earlier this week, we praised Brady’s hilariously absurd Subway commercials. And now we have Brady endearing himself to everyone in the content game.The future Hall of Famer appears on the weekly SiriusXM radio show Let’s Go with Jim Gray and Larry Fitzgerald, and ESPN’s SportsCenter Twitter account, which has 38 million followers, pulled and promoted a Brady quote from the show. While they did credit the show at the bottom of the graphic, there was no link back to the show in the tweet.

Washington Football Team quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will not undergo surgery after suffering a hip subluxation in the team's season-opening loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. The 38-year-old will instead rehab his injury through other methods with hopes of returning to the field this season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.Fitzpatrick is expected to miss at least eight weeks, Rapoport adds. If the rehab route does not work out, surgery could ultimately be Fitzpatrick's only way to return to full health. A procedure would surely shake up his return timeline. Fitzpatrick signed a one-year, $10 million deal with Washington during the offseason after two years with the Miami Dolphins. He attempted just six passes against the Chargers before exiting and being replaced by Taylor Heinicke.
