Justice is getting what you deserve (punishment).

The Oakland Raiders' worldwide tour gets started tonight in Canada, where they'll play a "home" preseason game against Green Bay in Winnipeg.....

     UNDATED (AP) - The Oakland Raiders' worldwide tour gets started tonight in Canada, where they'll play a "home" preseason game against Green Bay in Winnipeg. The Raiders will also play a "home" game during the regular season in London against Chicago on October 6th.

     Coach Jon Gruden will likely rest most of his regulars for this game, including quarterback Derek Carr and star receiver Antonio Brown. Brown has yet to make his Oakland debut as he has dealt with frostbitten feet and a fight with the NFL over his banned helmet.

     This will be the third time the Packers have played a preseason game outside the United States.

     The other NFL preseason games tonight are the New York Giants at Cincinnati, Carolina at New England, Washington at Atlanta, Baltimore at Philadelphia and Jacksonville at Miami.

     NFL-LIONS-HARRISON

     ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Lions have signed defensive tackle Damon "Snacks" Harrison to an $11 million, one-year extension today. Harrison, who has two years left on the $46 million contract he signed with the New York Giants, is under contract for an additional season with the Lions. Detroit acquired the former All-Pro player in a trade from the Giants last season for a fifth-round draft pick. He didn't attend the Lions' mandatory minicamp during this past offseason, hoping to get a new deal.

     Elsewhere in the NFL:

     - Coach Vic Fangio won't rule out placing rookie quarterback Drew Lock on injured reserve to start the season. Lock sprained his right thumb against the 49ers and a timetable for his return is up in the air. Lock says he's never had a sprain this bad and won't venture a guess as to how long he'll be sidelined. The Broncos will start quarterback Kevin Hogan against the Rams this weekend and undrafted rookie Brett Rypien will also play in the game.

     - The Arizona Cardinals have acquired defensive lineman Bruce Hector in a trade that sent safety Rudy Ford to the Philadelphia Eagles. The move is pending physicals for both players. Hector played in eight games for the Eagles last season. Ford has played the past two seasons for the Cardinals, mostly on
special teams.

     - New England Patriots safety Patrick Chung has been indicted in New Hampshire on a charge of cocaine possession. A Belknap County grand jury indicted the 32-year-old Chung on Aug. 8. Authorities say Chung knowingly possessed cocaine on June 25 while in Meredith. Chung's arraignment is scheduled for Wednesday.

     - Dontrelle Inman is returning to the Los Angeles Chargers. The wide receiver played 41 games for the team from 2014 to 2017. He was traded to Chicago in 2017 and played for Indianapolis last season.

     U.S. OPEN
 
     NEW YORK (AP) - Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova will finally meet in the U.S. Open, and they'll do it in their very first match. The past U.S. Open champions, two of the biggest stars in women's tennis, were scheduled for an opening-round matchup when the draws were conducted for the final major of the year.

     Williams and Sharapova have met in the finals of the other three majors and the 2012 Olympics but have never played each other in the U.S. Open. Williams owns a 19-2 record in their WTA Tour matchups, but that lopsided number shouldn't do much to dampen the hype around what will be the marquee match of the opening round at Flushing Meadows, which begins Monday.

     NASCAR-EARNHARDT-DARLINGTON

     DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) - Dale Earnhardt Jr. still plans to compete in the Xfinity event at Darlington Raceway on Aug. 31, despite a recent plane crash. Earnhardt Jr. posted his update on Twitter late Wednesday night, saying his lower back is sore and swollen. He's receiving daily treatment "solely to get well to race."

     Earnhardt, his family and two pilots escaped a burning plane that veered off the runway at Elizabethton Municipal Airport in Tennessee last week.

     Earnhardt won NASCAR's most popular driver 15 straight times from 2003 through 2017. He retired two years ago and is an NBC racing analyst.

     Darlington is Earnhardt's one race this season.
