Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu tests positive for COVID-19, could return for Week 1

  Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu tests positive for COVID-19, could return for Week 1 Mathieu is fully vaccinated, which means he could return to team activities without completing an isolation period of at least 10 days if he produces two negative virus tests taken 24 hours apart. McDowell added Mathieu was asymptomatic as of Wednesday afternoon. In a corresponding roster move, Kansas City re-signed wide receiver Marcus Kemp. For now, Mathieu is on track to be available for the regular-season opener against the Cleveland Browns held at Arrowhead Stadium on Sept. 12.

BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — The Brevard County School Board’s first regular meeting following the implementation of a mandatory mask policy on Aug. 30 attracted far fewer speakers than previous meetings, but people on both sides of the issue were still present and steadfast in their views.

Outside the meeting at the Brevard County Public School headquarters in Viera, Florida, one group of protesters gathered to burn masks, while another group of anti-mask mandate activists held a separate prayer vigil.

Red Sox place Danny Santana on COVID-19 IL as outbreak continues to worsen

  Red Sox place Danny Santana on COVID-19 IL as outbreak continues to worsen Shortly after announcing that right-hander Nick Pivetta had been placed on the COVID-19-related injured list, the Red Sox announced that infielder Danny Santana has also been placed on the list. The #RedSox today placed INF/OF Danny Santana on the COVID-19 Related Injured List. To fill Santana’s spot on the active roster, the Red Sox recalled OF Franchy Cordero from Triple-A Worcester.

Just over 20 people signed up to speak at Thursday’s meeting, far fewer than the 140 who spoke at the Aug. 30 emergency meeting. A few people thanked the three board members who voted in favor of a mask policy, while others continued to argue against mask mandates.

One woman speaking against mask mandates at the meeting was led out the building by Brevard County Sheriff's Office deputies after she attempted to continue talking after her allotted three minutes was over.

But during this board meeting, unlike previous meetings, most of the action took place outside of the meeting room.

Cowboys to start QB Cooper Rush in preseason finale vs. Jaguars

  Cowboys to start QB Cooper Rush in preseason finale vs. Jaguars Interestingly, Rush is currently listed fourth on the club's unofficial depth chart behind Dak Prescott, Garrett Gilbert and Ben DiNucci. "Cooper lives here year round," McCarthy added about his temporary QB1. "He has been here every day throughout the offseason. He is super intelligent. He has a great understanding. He knows the ropes around here. He has a history in the offense. That is the point I am making. And he was always prepared for his opportunity. He fought through two injuries — both the shoulder and the back. I thought he played well against Houston.

A crowd of over 20 people gathered to burn masks. A counter protestor with a megaphone, a Firehouse Subs helmet and a fire extinguisher lectured them about fire safety and threatened to put out any fire they lit.

Janice Crisp, a former Palm Bay City Council candidate who organized the event, said she did not obtain a fire permit but checked and complied with local regulations. The masks were burned on the sidewalk outside the school board in miniature firepits while she watched with a fire extinguisher of her own.

Brevard County Sheriff’s Office officials watched the event, but did not intervene.

Nearby, gathered around a tree in the parking lot, Moms for Liberty members held a prayer circle. They did not join with the mask burners.

The main issue on the agenda Thursday was the school's 2021-2022 school year budget.

The budget comes with a decreased millage rate – the amount property owners will pay to the district per $1,000 worth of property they own -- to reflect rising property values. Because houses in the Space Coast are worth more than they were a year ago, the district doesn’t need to collect as much compared to how much local homes are worth.

The board passed the budget with no discussion. Only one person spoke during the public comments section for the new budget, and he asked where to get more information.
