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.

Miller Surgery Successful


 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State coach Urban Meyer says that quarterback Braxton Miller's surgery went well.
   Miller, a two-time Big Ten player of the year, tore the labrum in his right throwing shoulder on Aug. 18 in practice.
   He had initially injured his shoulder in last year's Orange Bowl loss to Clemson, then had surgery in February and missed spring workouts. He returned to the team and reinjured the shoulder during preseason camp.
   Meyer, speaking on the Big Ten coach's teleconference, says Miller sent him a picture after the surgery was completed Tuesday in Florida.
   J.T. Barrett will start in place of Miller for the Buckeyes against Navy in Baltimore on Saturday.

Bengals Make Cuts

CINCINNATI (AP) - The Bengals waived second-year linebacker J.K. Schaffer as part of their moves to get down to the 75-man roster limit on Tuesday.
   Schaffer grew up in Cincinnati and attended the University of Cincinnati. He suffered a concussion during the second preseason game. If he clears waivers, he'll revert to the Bengals' injured reserve list.
   Rookie cornerback Lavelle Westbrooks also was waived with a thumb injury and will revert to the team's injury list if he clears waivers.
   In addition, the Bengals waived second-year tight end Kevin Brock, first-year receiver Jasper Collins, rookie linebacker James Davidson and first-year quarterback Matt Scott.

Whitner Fond of Two-QB System

 BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Cleveland Browns safety Donte Whitner has seen the two-quarterback system work in the NFL.
   With Johnny Manziel serving as the backup quarterback for the Browns, coach Mike Pettine has hinted at developing an offensive package for him. The idea is not unlike what the San Francisco 49ers did in 2012 with Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick.
   Whitner was on the 49ers at the time and said that even if the package isn't used much in a game, simply making sure an opposing team has to prepare for it can be an advantage.
   Pettine agreed. He was the defensive coordinator for the Jets when they played the 49ers in 2012.
   New York spent time preparing for both Kaepernick and Smith before losing 34-0. Kaepernick threw one incomplete pass, but rushed for 50 yards and a score.

Love Loves Cleveland

 INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) - Kevin Love says he's committed to winning an NBA title with the Cavaliers - however long it takes.
   The All-Star forward was introduced Tuesday by the Cavs, who acquired Love last weekend in a blockbuster, three-team trade that instantly turned Cleveland into an NBA championship favorite. The deal also gives the team a star-powered trio in Love, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving.
   Love spent his first six seasons with Minnesota. He can opt out of his contract and become a free agent next summer. Love says he intends to stay with the Cavs, saying, "I'm committed to this team, committed long term to the end goal and that's to win championships."
   Love said shortly after James announced he was re-signing with Cleveland that the four-time league MVP called and asked him to join him.
   Love said he told James, "I'm in."
