Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Pats Bring Back Blount

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - The New England Patriots have re-signed running back LeGarrette Blount, two days after he was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Blount spent last season with the Patriots before signing a two-year contract with the Steelers. Pittsburgh cut him on Tuesday the day after he jogged toward the tunnel with time on the clock as Ben Roethlisberger lined up for the final snap in a 27-24 win over the Tennessee Titans.

KSU Game Scratched

   BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo's home football game against Kent State has been canceled because of severe winter weather in western New York.
   It was originally postponed from Wednesday to Friday, but the Mid-American Conference announced Thursday night that the game had been scuttled altogether.
   MAC Commissioner Jon Steinbrecher says it's not feasible to play, and the conference wants "to be respectful of the efforts of the emergency service personnel in the Buffalo area who are working to assist those in need."
   Buffalo (4-6, 2-4) and Kent State (1-9, 0-6) are out of playoff contention. Buffalo closes its season at Massachusetts on Nov. 28.

Hoyer Going to Gordon

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - With Josh Gordon back, quarterback Brian Hoyer has his favorite target again. The Browns want to make sure it's not his only one.
   Gordon returned from his 10-game suspension on Wednesday, and Browns coach Mike Pettine joked the ball was "mysteriously" thrown in his direction throughout practice. Pettine said Hoyer was "like a kid with a new toy at Christmas" with Gordon around.
   Pettine said Hoyer has to be careful not to have "tunnel vision" just because Gordon, who led the league with 1,646 yards receiving, is on the field.
   Gordon was a little sore following his first workout, but Pettine said the star wide receiver is further along than the team expected.
   As for Sunday's game in Atlanta, Pettine said it would be tempting to play Gordon for 75 snaps, "but I don't know if that's the most prudent approach."

Jackets' Johnson Declares Bankruptcy

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson has filed for bankruptcy while earning millions under a $30.5 million contract in his ninth NHL season.
   In federal court records, the 27-year-old says his finances have fallen apart under his parents' management. He says creditors and his financial advisers took advantage of him through fraudulent transactions and predatory lending, with his contract earnings pledged as security for unconventional loans that he didn't authorize.
   Johnson filed for bankruptcy Oct. 7, two days before the team began the regular season. Those filings indicated he owed more than $12 million. For estimated assets, he checked the box indicating $1 million to $10 million.
   Johnson tells The Columbus Dispatch others led him down the wrong path and he's trying to fix that, but declined to comment further.

McCarron's Shoulder Ready to Roll

 CINCINNATI (AP) - AJ McCarron's first throws in practice were way off target. It didn't ruin his mood.
   The rookie quarterback returned to practice this week after spending all of training camp and the season getting his passing shoulder back in shape. The Bengals drafted him in the fifth round intending to develop him into a backup for Andy Dalton. A sore passing shoulder pushed back those plans.
   McCarron said on Thursday that the shoulder feels strong and he's ready to be a backup this season, if that's what the Bengals need. They have three weeks to decide whether to add him to the active roster for the final three games of the regular season.

Jonathan Waters said investigation proves he was treated unfairly
