The expansion Houston Texans' first exhibition game--a 34-17 loss to the New York Giants--was tinged with sadness Monday night when reserve safety Leomont Evans had to be rushed to a local hospital after suffering a bruised spinal cord as he tried to rush a Giant punter. Evans, a former Los Angeles Xtreme player in the now-defunct XFL, was on the right side of the Texans' punt team when he seemed to lower his head and hit Giant blocker Sean Bennett high.

Belichick said Anderson, 29, agreed with his decision.

One day after his rights were nearly traded to the Chicago Bears, first-round draft pick Patrick Ramsey signed with the Washington Redskins on Wednesday. The quarterback from Tulane received a five-year, $5.7-million deal with a $3.1-million signing bonus, according to a football source speaking on condition of anonymity. However, it's unlikely Ramsey will be included in what is now a three-way battle among Shane Matthews, Danny Wuerffel and Sage Rosenfels for the starting job.

A day after their ugly spat over sponsorships, the boss of the Sydney Olympics and the IOC's top marketing official literally kissed and made up. IOC Vice President Dick Pound blasted Sydney organizing chief Michael Knight on Thursday for having a "dysfunctional relationship" with sponsors of the 2000 Sydney Games. He chided organizers for treating sponsorship dollars as a "milk cow that could be returned to again, again and again."
