HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Astros' All-Star shortstop is expected to miss 6-8 weeks with a torn ligament in his left thumb. The Astros have put Carlos Correa on the 10-day disabled list and recalled Colin Moran from Triple A Fresno. General manager Jeff Luhnow says Correa's loss is a "big blow," but he is expected back for the stretch run in September. Houston opened the day 15 ½ games ahead of the Mariners in the AL West.

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says the club is still gathering details over Ezekiel Elliott's involvement in an altercation at a Dallas bar. The star running back was involved in a dispute Sunday night that led to a man getting punched in the nose and being taken to a hospital. Elliott was already facing a potential suspension over the NFL's investigation of a year-old domestic case.

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Detroit Lions defensive end Armonty Bryant has been suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. Detroit originally signed Bryant after he was cut by the Cleveland Browns at the end of a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. After contributing in Detroit briefly last season, he was suspended three games for violating the NFL's policy on substances of abuse.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings say its 52nd training camp on the campus of Minnesota State University in Mankato will be their last. Starting next year, the team will hold training camp at their new practice facility in the Twin Cities suburb of Eagan.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Last week's All-Star game made a ratings turn-around. After last year's record low, the Nielsen company says the game drew 9.3 million viewers to rank as the last week's No. 2 program. The American League's 2-1 victory at Miami was the first exhibition game in 15 years, with no World Series home-field advantage on the line. That gave the Fox broadcast room to play around, including interviews with players on the field.
