    NFL NEWS

     GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Aaron Rodgers is participating in practice and is expected to play in the Packers' third preseason game against the Oakland Raiders in Canada. Green Bay general manager Brian Gutekunst said today the plan is for the two-time MVP to make his preseason debut Thursday night in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
 
     Rodgers sat out the Packers' second preseason game in Baltimore and was sidelined during practice Sunday with back tightness. Rodgers, along with 25 other teammates, did not dress for the first preseason game against Houston.
 
     Thursday will mark the third time the Packers have played a preseason game outside the United States.
 
    Elsewhere in the NFL:

    - Star receiver Antonio Brown has returned to training camp with the Oakland Raiders a day after being given an ultimatum by general manager Mike Mayock to be "all in or all out." Brown didn't attend practice Sunday as he works to find a helmet that he's comfortable using and that meets safety standards set by the NFL and NFLPA.

    - The New England Patriots have placed receiver Josh Gordon on the non-football injury list while he gets back into shape following his suspension. The move comes after the NFL conditionally lifted the suspension, saying Gordon could participate in team meetings, conditioning and individual workouts. Gordon was suspended indefinitely in December for violations of the league's substance abuse policy. The Cleveland Browns cut ties with him last September.

     HOWARD UNIVERSITY-STEPHEN CURRY

     WASHINGTON (AP) - Two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry is helping Howard University launch a Division I golf program. The Golden State Warriors star guard and the school announced the six-year partnership today. The specifics of his contribution were not disclosed. Howard officials say they plan to have women's and men's golf teams for the 2020-21 academic year.

     The school had a Division II golf program in the past, along with intercollegiate and intramural club teams.

     The 31-year-old Curry, who has won three NBA championships with the Warriors, says he decided to get involved after meeting a Howard student who had been trying to get the university to have a golf team. Curry says "it's tough" to hear about students "who have the talent but don't have a fair shot at the game."
