'Grown up' Paul Pogba returned to Manchester United to finish a job

His £89m move from Juventus back to Old Trafford last summer was overtaken by Neymar's £198m switch to PSG earlier this month. 'I grew up a lot in Italy and I have come back as a man'.

Indianapolis Colts center Ryan Kelly (foot) will undergo surgery. "He'll make a full and complete recovery". The current timetable is unknown, but Kelly will end up missing regular season time - the only question is how much. In the mean time though, the Colts are now starting undrafted rookie Deyshawn Bond with the 1st team offense, which no disrespect to the young lineman, but doesn't appear to be a sustained recipe for regular season success.


Aaron Judge sets single-season strikeout streak record

Aaron Judge sets single-season strikeout streak record
