     NFL-NEWS

    UNDATED (AP) - Week one of the NFL season concludes tonight with a pair of Monday Night Football contests. The Houston Texans play at New Orleans in the early game. Then Denver plays at Oakland in the late game.
    
     Elsewhere in the NFL:

    - Jacksonville has acquired quarterback Josh Dobbs in a trade with Pittsburgh. The move gives the Jaguars a backup while Nick Foles recovers from a broken collarbone. Jacksonville gave up a fifth-round pick in the 2020 draft for Dobbs, who was in his third season with the Steelers. He was a fourth-round pick in 2017. He has played in five career NFL games, completing 6 of 12 passes for 43 yards and an interception. He will back up rookie Gardner Minshew, who completed 22 of 25 passes for 275 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception, in his NFL debut Sunday. Foles broke his left clavicle on the team's 10th offensive play of the season. He was hit and landed on while throwing a 35-yard touchdown pass to DJ Chark.

     - A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice underwent an MRI on his right knee the morning after making his NFL debut. Guice is just over a year removed from tearing the ACL in his left knee. Guice ran for just 18 yards on 10 carries in a loss to Philadelphia but downplayed concern about a trip to the injury tent during the game.

     - The NFL plans to speak with Browns star Odell Beckham Jr. about wearing a watch during a game. The flashy wide receiver sported an expensive watch - worth over $250,000 - during his debut Sunday with Cleveland. Beckham caught seven passes for 71 yards in his first action for the Browns while wearing a limited Richard Mille watch. A league spokesman said there are no rules prohibiting jewelry, but there is one for hard objects.

     - An attorney and New Orleans Saints fan says he will go no further with his court fight against the NFL over game officials' failure to call an obvious penalty at a crucial point in a January playoff game. The so-called "Nola No-call" helped the Los Angeles Rams beat the Saints and advance to the Super Bowl. The lawsuit alleging fraud by the NFL was filed by lawyer Antonio LeMon and three others. It was dismissed Friday by Louisiana's Supreme Court.

     - Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith will miss several weeks after spraining his knee in the game against Miami. Coach John Harbaugh says Smith has a Grade 2 sprain of the right knee. Harbaugh said Smith will miss "multiple weeks" but added that the injury is "not a season-ender by any stretch."

     BASKETBALL-WORLD CUP-US-BRAZIL

     SHENZHEN, China (AP) - The first mission for the U.S. is complete: The Americans are going to the Tokyo Olympics. And now the World Cup quarterfinals are the next task.

     Kemba Walker and Myles Turner each scored 16 points, and the Americans earned a top seed for the quarterfinals by beating Brazil 89-73 Monday in the final second-round game of the tournament.

     It was a win three nations could celebrate: The U.S. victory not only resulted in an Olympic berth, but also clinched an Olympic spot for Argentina and a spot in the quarterfinals for the Czech Republic. The Czechs moved on despite losing earlier today to NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and Greece.

     RED SOX-DOMBROWSKI OUT

     BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Red Sox parted ways Sunday with president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski less than a year after winning the World Series.

     Red Sox spokesman Kevin Gregg made the announcement following a 10-5 loss to the New York Yankees that dropped the defending champions 17 1/2 games behind their longtime AL East rivals. Boston, which had won three straight AL East titles, would be eliminated from the division race with a loss in the series finale on Monday night.

     A veteran baseball executive who built a World Series champion in Miami and helped the Tigers win two AL pennants, the 63-year-old Dombrowski was brought in to steady the Red Sox front office in 2015 with the team in the middle of back-to-back last-place finishes.

     The Red Sox followed with three straight AL East titles - a first in franchise history, winning a club-record 108 games last season and their fourth World Series since 2004. From the start of Dombrowski's tenure on Aug. 18, 2015, through the beginning of this season, the Red Sox had posted a major-league best 320-210 (.604) record.

     TENNIS-RANKINGS

     NEW YORK (AP) - U.S. Open champion Bianca Andreescu has jumped 10 spots to a career-high No. 5 in the WTA rankings. Ash Barty has replaced Naomi Osaka at No. 1. Men's champ Rafael Nadal stayed at No. 2 and closed the gap between him and No. 1 Novak Djokovic. Runner-up Daniil Medvedev went up to a career-best No. 4.
