Sports Headlines: 

>>Brewers Sign 5 To Contracts, Trade Former Closer Knebel To Dodgers

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  The Major League Baseball off-season finally got underway Wednesday with the Milwaukee Brewers making several roster decisions.  The Brewers tendered contract offers to pitchers Brandon Woodruff and Josh Hader, a pair of All-Stars. It re-signed shortstop Orlando Arcia, first baseman Daniel Vogelbach, and catchers Omar Narvaez and Manny Pina.  There was also a significant trade, with former closer Corey Knebel going to the Los Angeles Dodgers in a deal for a “player to be named later” or cash.  The team decided to non-tender contracts to utility player Jace Peterson, pitcher Alex Claudio and outfielder Ben Gamel.

>>New Packer Tavon Austin Says He Still Has 4.3 Speed

(Green Bay, WI)  —  The newest Green Bay Packer could be used as a kick returner, a wide receiver, or even one of the smallest running backs in the NFL. Tavon Austin was so fast coming out of West Virginia he was picked eighth overall in the 2013 NFL Draft. Austin says he still has that four-point-three 40-yard dash speed. He never lived up to the hype, but he’s hoping to revive his pro football career with Packers coach Matt LaFleur and future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers.  LaFleur coached Austin three years ago with the Rams and he says the five-foot-eight speedster is still “very explosive.”

>>NBA To Release New Season Schedule Friday

(Undated)  —  The NBA is set to release its schedule for the 2020-2021 regular season Friday, but we’re already learning about some of the schedule for the Milwaukee Bucks.  Coach Mike Budenholzer’s team will play three preseason games, starting a week from Saturday at home against the Dallas Mavericks.  The same two teams will play at the Fiserv Forum two days later, then the Bucks preseason wraps up with a December 18th game at New Orleans against the Pelicans.  The regular-season opener for Milwaukee will be December 23rd at Boston.  Then, the Bucks play the Golden State Warriors on Christmas Day.  This year’s NBA schedule will include only 72 games instead of the usual 82.

>>Senior QB Jack Coan Could Be Available For Indiana Game

(Madison, WI)  —  Senior quarterback Jack Coan could be available to play in Saturday’s home game against Indiana.  Coach Paul Chryst hasn’t said whether Coan will be used.  He suffered a foot injury October 3rd and had surgery four days later.  He has returned to practice with the Badgers and has been cleared to play if needed.  The last game Coan played in was the Rose Bowl against Oregon.  Redshirt freshman Graham Mertz has taken over with Coan sidelined.  He was outstanding in two victories, then struggled as Wisconsin dropped a 17-7 decision at Northwestern.  Coan started all 14 games last season for the Badgers.

>>Packers Will Open Lambeau Field For Another 500 Fans Sunday

(Green Bay, WI)  —  The Green Bay Packers will cautiously reopen Lambeau Field to another 500 fans for Sunday’s game against the Eagles.  Kickoff is at 3:25 p-m.  This is the second week in-a-row the team has allowed a few dozen people to attend a game inside the historic stadium that seats more than 81-thousand.  Just like last week, the people attending the game will be team employees and their household members.  There will be no tailgating and the Packers front office says it will continue to evaluate COVID-19 protocols for safety.
