NCAA Suspends Jim Boeheim, Penalizes Syracuse

(NEW YORK) -- The NCAA has suspended Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim for nine games after a course of multiple infractions over the past eight years.

Syracuse's penalties also include a five-year probation and for the school to vacate all wins in which ineligible men's basketball students played in 2004-07, and 2010--12 and ineligible football students played in 2004-05, 2005-06 and 2006-07.

"Over the course of a decade, Syracuse University did not control and monitor its athletics programs," the NCAA said in a statement, "and its head men's basketball coach failed to monitor his program."

The violations dated back to 2001, the NCAA said.  Boeheim is the longest tenured coach in Division I men's basketball.

The Orange sit at 18-12 and will play N.C. State on Saturday.

Colts Part Ways with Reggie Wayne

NFL via Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) -- The Indianapolis Colts announced that they will not resign 14-year veteran receiver Reggie Wayne, who spent all 14 seasons with the team and won a Super Bowl title during that run.

"My relationship with Reggie goes back to my coaching days at the University of Miami. He is the epitome of what a coach looks for in a player," Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said in a statement.  "Hard work, dedication, and sacrifice are just a few ways I would describe him. He encompasses everything that is right about this game, on and off the field."

The statement continued, "I am so grateful I had the chance to coach Reggie again when I arrived in 2012. It was a blessing to see the impact that he made with this organization and Colts fans around the world. I wish him all the best in the future and thank him for representing the horseshoe in the most professional manner."

Colts owner and CEO Jim Irsay also released a statement about Wayne's release. "Reggie is one of the greatest men to ever wear the horseshoe, and we have been blessed to watch him play for the past 14 years," he said. "When he first took the field with us in 2001, we knew this day would eventually arrive.  That reality is one of the things that makes pro football such a tough business."

"We feel this decision is in the best interests of the team and for Reggie as it will allow him to seek a better opportunity for playing time elsewhere if he so chooses. Reggie is beloved by the Colts organization and our fans and he will always be a part of the Colts family.  I look forward to the day in the near future when our great number 87 enters the Colts Ring of Honor and the Pro Football Hall of Fame," Irsay continued.

Wayne is the franchise's leader in regular season games played (211) and ranks second in receptions with 1,070 for 14,345 yards, and 80 receiving touchdowns. Wayne was drafted 30th overall in the 2001 NFL draft.

Giants' Hunter Pence to Miss 6-8 Weeks with Broken Forearm

Sarah Glenn/Getty Images(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) -- San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence will be out six to eight weeks after breaking his left forearm during a spring training game on Thursday.

Pence was hit in the arm by hard throwing Cubs prospect Corey Black in the sixth inning, and left the game after touching first base.

"Lost for words. Hope you heal fast @hunterpence hitting someone is never a good feeling. Hurting someone is even worse," Black tweeted following the news.

"Of course it's disappointing," Giants president and CEO Larry Baer said Thursday night. "Hunter's a vital part of the team. But knowing him, he'll move mountains to get back quickly."

Pence has played in 383 straight games -- the longest active streak in the majors.

Carson Palmer's Rehab Going Great

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer's rehab from his ACL reconstruction surgery is going well.

Palmer tore his ACL in Week 10 and is almost four months removed from surgery. He told reporters Thursday that the injury blues have faded.

“I started being able to sweat and work out again and really feel like I was training for football as opposed to just doing leg extensions and calf raises and things that feel monotonous or silly at the time,” Palmer said. “The last month or so has been fun again.”

Palmer said he throws five days a week and has been running for two or three weeks. The 35-year-old says he's close to being able to participate in a normal workout, and he will definitely be ready for training camp.

"I'm going to be ready to rock 'n' roll by the season," Palmer said. "Definitely going to be ready by that, definitely going to be ready for camp. And shooting to be getting reps in our mandatory (minicamp) and hopefully some of our OTA practices."

Before being injured last season, Palmer started six games, throwing for 1,626 yards, 11 touchdowns, and three interceptions.
