DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — A person familiar with the situation says free agent quarterback Jay Cutler has agreed to terms on a contract with the Miami Dolphins. Cutler is expected to compete with Matt Moore for the starting job while Ryan Tannehill remains out with a left knee injury that could sideline him for the entire season. Dolphins coach Adam Gase was offensive coordinator for the Bears when Cutler had a career-best quarterback rating with them in 2015.

FLOWERY BRANCH, GA. (AP) — The NFL has slapped Falcons cornerback Jalen Collins with a 10-game suspension without pay. It will mark the second straight year Collins will have to miss the opener for a violation of the league's policy on performance enhancers. Collins will be eligible to return to the active roster following the team's game against Seattle on Nov. 20.

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) — Martin Truex Jr. held off Matt Kenseth with a late fuel mileage gamble to win the Monster Energy Cup race at Watkins Glen. Truex assumed the lead and outdueled Kenseth on the final lap in winning for the fourth time this season. Brad Keselowski had a big lead but was forced to pit with three laps to go.

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Hideki Matsuyama (mat-soo-YAH'-mah) fired a 9-under 61 to erase a two-shot deficit and take the PGA's Bridgestone Invitational at Akron, Ohio. Matsuyama birdied his last three holes and tied the course record held by Jose Maria Olazabal (oh-lah-THAH'-bul), Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia. Matsuyama's 16 under total was five strokes better than Zach Johnson.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) — I.M. Kim has earned her first major title by capturing the Women's British Open by two shots over Jodi Ewart Shadoff. Kim shot a 1-under 71 and finished 18 under in her third career victory, all coming in the last two months. The win comes five years after she missed a 14-inch putt that would have given her a victory at the Kraft Nabisco Championship.
