2. Little Miami High School is closed today to honor Brayden Thornbury, a star football player who died after a car accident in Morrow. Our thoughts are with Brayden's family and friends.


3. Are you ready for some football? Maybe not on Sunday. Tickets to see the 2-0 Cincinnati Bengals take on the Tennessee Titans at Paul Brown Stadium aren't anywhere near the 85 percent sell-out needed to air the game. Why do you think the Bengals keep running into this situation?

4. Speaking of the NFL, the organization and the players' union have agreed on a new drug policy that allows players who test positive for banned stimulants in the offseason to be referred to the substance abuse program instead of being banned during the season.

5. Last NFL story: Adrian Peterson is being paid $691K a week, even though he is not playing. The Minnesota Vikings have suspended him but the NFL hasn't, which means he's still being paid. Head over and take on poll on the recent scandals that have marred the NFL.
