DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — There's a chance the Miami Dolphins will play the entire season without quarterback Ryan Tannehill if he needs left knee surgery. Head coach Adam Gase says surgery is a possibility after Tannehill re-injured the knee during Thursday's practice. He originally hurt the knee last year, causing him to miss the last three regular-season games and a playoff loss to Pittsburgh.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Panthers quarterback Cam Newton continues to be held out of passing drills while battling soreness in his surgically repaired right shoulder. Newton participated in the first five training camp practices but has not practiced since Sunday when he left early. The league's MVP had surgery to repair a partially torn rotator cuff in March.

CHICAGO (AP) — Two-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer and Gio Gonzalez will miss their scheduled starts for the Nationals against the Cubs this weekend. Manager Dusty Baker decided to give Scherzer at least an extra day rather than have him pitch Sunday after the right-hander exited Tuesday's game against Florida because of neck spasms. Gonzalez won't pitch today with his wife expected to give birth to their second child within the next few days.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) — In-Young Kim is the leader heading into the third round of the Women's British Open in St. Andrews, Scotland. Kim followed Thursday's 65 with a 4-under 68 for an 11-under total, two shots ahead of Lexi Thompson and Georgia Hall. First-round leader Michelle Wie (wee) ballooned to a 76 that puts her seven strokes back.

NEW YORK (AP) — Defending champion Stan Wawrinka (vah-VRIHN'-kuh) has pulled out of the U.S. Open due to a knee injury that has prompted him to sit out the remainder of the season. He is the second 2016 finalist to withdraw from this year's event because of injury, joining Novak Djokovic (JOH'-koh-vihch). Wawrinka reached the French Open final in June but was knocked out in the first round of Wimbledon last month.
