John Candelaria's sore right knee was examined, but a decision on the New York Yankee left-hander's status will be delayed until today. "We have only preliminary results at this time," said Syd Thrift, Yankee vice president of baseball operations. "The studies are not complete." Candelaria, 35, had discomfort in his knee in each of his last two starts. He pitched five innings Friday night in Chicago before leaving in pain. Candelaria did not pitch after Aug. 24 last season because of cartilage damage in the knee.

Wyoming's Ted Gilmore and Shawn Wehrer may not be the most mobile with their right knees taped and braced in place, but they don't plan to watch Friday's Holiday Bowl from the sidelines. Both were injured in 15th-ranked Wyoming's lone loss, a 34-10 drubbing at Houston, and both until this week were considered little more than questionable for the bowl game with Oklahoma State.

Freddie Bradley's final college football season has been placed on hold. Bradley, a record-setting running back at Moorpark College in 1989 and '90, will apply for a medical redshirt year to allow his sore right knee to heal, officials at Sonoma State said Thursday. Last week, in his first appearance for Sonoma since transferring to the Division II school from Arkansas, Bradley gained 24 yards in five carries against St. Mary's. However, in succeeding days, his knee was extremely sore.

As Americans continue to get bigger, you can add knee problems to the list of ailments they are likely to face after lugging around extra pounds. Being overweight probably leads to more than half of the nation's 850,000 annual operations to repair cartilage tears in the knee, researchers at the University of Utah concluded.

USC's quarterback situation for the season opener and possibly beyond became muddled Friday when starter Mark Sanchez suffered a dislocated left kneecap while warming up for practice. Sanchez, a fourth-year junior, threw a pass to teammate Clay Matthews, as he does every day before stretching exercises, but then crumpled to the ground. Team trainers helped Sanchez to the sideline, where he said the kneecap was put back into place.

The Angels might yet trade for a first baseman. If they do, it might be too late to save their shortstop, and perhaps their season. The Angels got clobbered again by the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday, this time by a 7-1 score, but that was the least of their worries. The greatest of their worries was the possibility that shortstop Erick Aybar could sit out several weeks because of a knee injury. "We need him," center fielder Torii Hunter said. For the Angels, the game was dreadful.
