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.
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin's lower-body injury will keep him out at least the rest of the week.
Coach Mike Sullivan said Tuesday that Malkin will miss Wednesday's game against the New York Rangers and a road trip through Carolina and Florida this weekend. The four-time All-Star has missed each of Pittsburgh's last three games after initially sustaining the injury last week.
Sullivan said the injury is not long term but that Malkin is no longer "day to day" as the team had previously assessed. Malkin has 23 goals and 26 assists in 49 games this season for Pittsburgh, which has won six of seven to move into third in the crowded Metropolitan Division.
Malkin will stay behind during the team's road trip to work with the training staff. The next chance for Malkin to play will be on Feb. 18 against Detroit.
CLEVELAND (AP) - The Browns say Johnny Manziel was diagnosed with a concussion late in the season by an independent neurologist, countering an NFL Network report they lied about the injury to cover up the troubled quarterback showing up intoxicated for practice.
The team issued a statement Tuesday saying Manziel reported to the team's facility on Dec. 30 - three days after a loss to Kansas City - complaining of concussion symptoms. The Browns say Manziel was tested by the neurologist and was entered into the league's concussion protocol. The team says he wasn't cleared from the protocol until Jan. 12.
The league's in-house network reported citing an unnamed Browns player that the team "lied" to try and protect Manziel, who is being investigated by Dallas police on allegations of domestic violence.
On Jan. 3, former coach Mike Pettine said, "No. No. No, that is not the case," when asked if Manziel was sent home for being inebriated.
