Muskegon blanks Wolves, 55-0

MUSKEGON — Eric James ran for two touchdowns and passed for a third Saturday night as the Muskegon Mustangs beat the Traverse City Wolves 55-0 in a Great Midwest Football League game.

James scored on a pair of three-yard runs and connected with John Ross on a 25-yard scoring strike.

The Mustangs led 34-0 at half and finished with 558 yards in total offense.

Traverse City had four turnovers. Kajuantae Pennington returned an interception 95 yards for a touchdown.

The win put Muskegon at 8-2. Traverse City fell to 5-5.

Smith recovers, back at practice

CORTLAND, N.Y. — New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith has fully participated in practice despite a sore right ankle that shortened his NFL debut at Detroit on Friday night.

Smith twisted the ankle on a play in the third quarter of the Jets’ 26-17 loss, but he says an X-ray and MRI exam revealed “great results” and calls it a “little ankle injury.”

Smith was cleared by the Jets’ trainers Sunday morning. He had a solid practice with the first-team offense and threw consecutive touchdown passes to Konrad Reuland in goal-line drills.

Smith, competing with Mark Sanchez for the starting job, says he is not completely healed and was “slower” on drop backs. But he says it was important for his teammates to see him tough out minor injuries.

Bolt still the fastest in the 100

MOSCOW — His legs were hurting, the rain was pouring and he was trailing late in the race.

Doesn’t matter. This is Usain Bolt.

And nothing gets in the way of him and first place, especially when he’s driven as he was Sunday night in the 100-meter final at the world championships.

Bolt blew by Justin Gatlin with about 30 meters to go and never glanced back. He also didn’t even crack a smile when he crossed the finish line because this took a lot more work than the world’s fastest sprinter usually needs.
