     MLB-NEWS

     UNDATED (AP) - The Atlanta Braves have recalled Austin Riley from an injury-rehab assignment to start Friday night's game against the Washington Nationals.

     Riley has been out since Aug. 5 after spraining his right knee during a routine workout. He was rehabbing at Triple-A Gwinnett, where he batted .263 with one homer and four RBIs while playing in seven regular-season games and the first two games of an International League playoff series.

     After being called up to Atlanta early in the season, Riley got off to a brilliant start - he homered in his second at-bat - but slumped significantly before his injury. He was hitting .242 with 17 homers and 45 RBIs.

     Riley was set to play right field and bat seventh against the Nationals.

     In other MLB news:

     - New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton had five plate appearances in a simulated game Friday as he works to return this month from a knee injury. The slugger also worked out in right field at the Yankees' complex in Tampa, Florida. He is expected to take part in another simulated game Saturday. Stanton has been limited to nine games this year, hitting .290 with one home run and seven RBIs. He strained his left biceps March 31 in his third game, strained a shoulder and calf during his rehabilitation and did not return until June 18. A week later, he strained the posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during an awkward headfirst slide into third base.

     NFL-NEWS

     UNDATED (AP) - A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that the Kansas City Chiefs and wide receiver Tyreek Hill have signed a three-year, $54 million contract extension.

     The Chiefs announced the contract today with a photo of Hill signing it but didn't disclose terms. A person with knowledge of the deal says it includes a $5.8 million signing bonus and $35.2 million in guarantees.

     Hill had a tumultuous offseason in which he was barred from any team activities while the NFL and local authorities investigated allegations of domestic violence. Hill was cleared before the start of training camp.

     The two-time All-Pro was entering the final year of his rookie contract.

     In other NFL news:

     - Oakland Raiders coach Jon Gruden said star receiver Antonio Brown is back with the team and is expected to play the season opener after a run-in with general manager Mike Mayock had put him in jeopardy of being suspended. Gruden spoke briefly at the beginning of practice today and said everybody is "ready to move on." Gruden said the plan is for Brown to play Monday night at home against Denver. Brown was sent home from the facility on Thursday after a confrontation the previous day at practice with Mayock. Brown had posted a letter earlier Wednesday from Mayock detailing nearly $54,000 in fines for missing a practice and walkthrough.

     - The Jacksonville Jaguars likely will be without starting left tackle Cam Robinson for their season opener - and maybe longer. Robinson injured his right knee in practice Thursday and was listed as doubtful to play against Kansas City. It's not the knee that sidelined Robinson for 14 games last season. He tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee against New England in Week 2 and spent the last 11 months working his way back. Making matters worse for the Jaguars, backup offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi was ruled out because of a nagging hamstring injury.

     - The Atlanta Falcons will be without offensive tackle Matt Gono for Sunday's season opener at Minnesota because of a back injury. Gono was battling with rookie Kaleb McGary for the starting job at right tackle. Now, the Falcons intend to go with both McGary and Ty Sambrailo at that position. Gono was ruled out today by coach Dan Quinn after missing the last two days of practice. McGary missed most of the preseason after undergoing a heart procedure.

     - The Buffalo Bills receiver and kickoff returner Andre Roberts has been
ruled out for the season opener at the New York Jets because of a quadriceps injury. Roberts was hurt in practice this week and ruled out on Friday. The game Sunday was supposed to be a homecoming for Roberts after he signed with Buffalo in March shortly after getting cut by the Jets. Roberts is a 10-year veteran and coming off a season when he earned All-Pro honors for leading the NFL in kickoff return yards. Tight end Tyler Kroft is listed as doubtful after missing the entire offseason with a broken right foot. Kroft was cleared for practicing last weekend.

     NHL-NEWS

     UNDATED (AP) - Joe Thornton is returning for another NHL season at age 40. Thornton signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the San Jose Sharks on Friday after briefly contemplating retirement at the end of last season.

     Thornton decided in the offseason that he wasn't ready to hang it up after 21 seasons in the NHL and said he would only play in San Jose. The Sharks were eager to bring Thornton back, but it took until a week before the start of training camp to finalize the contract.

     In other NHL news:

     - The Carolina Hurricanes have signed defenseman Jake Gardiner to a four-year contract. Under terms of the deal announced Friday by Carolina general manager Don Waddell, Gardiner will make an average of $4.05 million each season. The 29-year-old Gardiner had three goals and 27 assists while playing 62 regular-season games with Toronto last season, then added two assists in seven playoff games. He has 45 goals and 200 assists during his eight-year NHL career.

     - Women are making inroads at the NHL officiating level. The league for the first time has picked four women to work on the ice at several prospect tournaments held this weekend. Katie Guay and Kelly Cooke have been selected as referees, while Kirsten Welsh and Kendall Hanley will work as linesmen. Guay is the most experienced of the four, having refereed women's games at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. She's assigned to work the Anaheim Ducks-hosted tournament in Irvine, California.

     NASCAR-GIBBS-JONES EXTENSION

     HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Erik Jones has signed a contract extension with Joe Gibbs Racing for the 2020 season. The 23-year-old Jones has two career Cup victories in three-plus seasons and 100 starts. He won the July race last year at Daytona International Speedway and took the checkered flag last week at Darlington Raceway.

     Jones is part of the JGR stable that includes two-time Daytona 500 champion Denny Hamlin, Cup Series champions Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr.

     Jones raced his rookie season in 2017 on a one-year loaner contract to Gibbs' sister team, the now-defunct Furniture Row Racing. He was pushed this year by JGR developmental driver Christopher Bell but the extension will keep Jones in the No. 20 Toyota for another season.
