CANTON, Ohio (AP) — The NFL preseason has begun with the Dallas Cowboys knocking off the Arizona Cardinals, 20-18 in the Hall of Fame game. Rookie Sam Irwin-Hill hit a pair of field goals, including a go-ahead, 43-yarder in the fourth quarter. The Cowboys were without Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Jason Witten and Sean Lee, while the Cardinals gave Carson Palmer, Larry Fitzgerald, David Johnson, Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu the night off.

UNDATED (AP) — Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has been held out of passing drills for the third straight day while battling soreness in his surgically repaired right shoulder. Coach Ron Rivera was vague on if this is part of the team's plan for Newton or if he's had a setback. Newton underwent surgery in March to repair a partially torn rotator cuff.

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill reinjured his left knee when it buckled as he scrambled and fell without being hit during yesterday's practice. Results of an MRI weren't definitive regarding the extent of the injury, and further assessment was expected tomorrow. Tannehill missed the final four games of last season, including a playoff loss at Pittsburgh, after spraining two ligaments in the same knee.

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth (speeth) each shot 3-under 67s that leave them two shots behind leader Thomas Pieters through one round of the PGA's Bridgestone Invitational at Akron, Ohio. McIlroy is playing for the first time since parting with caddie J.P. Fitzgerald and replacing him with Harry Diamond, his best friend. Pieters birdied his final hole for a 65 and a one-shot lead over Russell Knox.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) — Michelle Wie (wee) was the leader heading into the second round of the Women's British Open at St. Andrews, Scotland. Wie posted nine birdies and shot a 30 on the back nine for an 8-under 64 that put her one stroke ahead of I.K. Kim. Lindy Duncan was two shots back and one ahead of a group that includes Lexi Thompson.
