SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A Santa Clara County grand jury has indicted former San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Ray McDonald on one count of rape of an intoxicated person.

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Johnny Manziel's (man-ZEHLZ') elbow soreness isn't going away, and the Browns quarterback will likely sit out Saturday's exhibition at Tampa Bay. Manziel didn't throw at practice again after an MRI showed no structural damage. Coach Mike Pettine (PEH'-tihn) acknowledged for the first time that the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner has dealt with elbow issues since high school.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The St. Louis Rams could be a little closer to returning to Los Angeles after Missouri's legislative budget leaders said they oppose spending taxpayer money on a new football stadium. House Budget Chairman Tom Flanigan sent a letter Wednesday to Gov. Jay Nixon warning that he will block any effort to put money in the state budget for payments on a new stadium unless the Legislature or voters first approve the additional debt. Nixon and the St. Louis Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority are working to piece together money for a new stadium as a counterproposal to efforts by Rams owner Stan Kroenke (KRAHN'-kee) to move the team to the Los Angeles area.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles' 2024 Olympics plan has stalled amid questions about potential runaway costs and the impact on neighborhoods already strangled by traffic and congestion.

But the vote has pushed backed until at least Friday, 2 1/2 weeks before a Sept. 15 deadline for the USOC to enter a bid with the IOC for the 2024 Games.
