Sports in brief: Packers player target of sexual assault investigation


Sexual assault Investigation targets Packer

MILWAUKEE — Police in Lake Delton, Wis., are investigating a Packers player in connection with an alleged sexual assault of two women at a condo party Saturday morning.

Authorities interviewed and released six Packers players, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported, but the focus is on a seventh the police would not identify. The newspaper reported that player is cornerback Brandon Underwood, who told investigators the contact was consensual.

Police cleared Clay Matthews, Matt Flynn, Khalil Jones, Josh Sitton, Korey Hall and Brad Jones of any involvement in the alleged assault.

"It comes down to was it consensual sex. One side says yes, the other says no," Sgt. Gerald Grimsled of the Lake Delton Police Department told the Journal Sentinel.

Police Chief Tom Dorner said the investigation results would be turned over to the district attorney today or Tuesday to consider charges but no arrest had been made.

McCOWN sits No. 2: Despite Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter suggesting that the quarterback spot was up for grabs, backup Luke McCown, a former Buc, indicated in a radio interview that David Garrard still has the top spot and is getting the bulk of first-team reps.


Tampa Krewe caps unbeaten season

The Tampa Krewe rugby team won the USA Men's Club Championship (Division II) in Glendale, Colo., beating a team from Doylestown, Pa., 29-17 in overtime. The victory capped an undefeated season for the Krewe, which went 10-0 in the regular season and 5-0 in the playoffs. Eual Tyler Cathey scored a tying try near the end of regulation and was named Man of the Match.


Cotto eyes old foes

After Miguel Cotto's ninth-round TKO of Yuri Foreman in a junior middleweight bout late Saturday at Yankee Stadium, he may be looking to avenge the two losses on his 35-2, 28-knockout slate.

Cotto lost to Antonio Margarito and Manny Pacquiao, but Margarito was found to have loaded hand wraps before a later fight against Shane Mosley, creating some doubt about that loss.
