Bucs rookie okay after being shot

Bucs offensive lineman Dominique Robertson, an undrafted rookie competing to make the team as a backup, was okay after being shot in Loma Linda, Calif., early Thursday, his lawyer said Saturday.

Robertson, 21, was shot twice in a leg and was released from the hospital Friday night, lawyer Zulu Ali said. A San Bernardino County Sheriff's spokeswoman, citing a detective, said Robertson's injuries were to his "back, buttocks and leg."

Robertson, who was questioned by police, was a bystander in the shooting, Ali said.

Robertson told police he was shot outside an apartment complex. San Bernardino County Sheriff's deputies "were unable to locate evidence (of) a crime scene," a department release said. His mother told the Riverside Press-Enterprise that her son, the nephew of Bucs offensive line coach George Warhop, was staying with friends.

The Bucs said in a statement they were gathering more information about what happened. "(The) primary concern is for Dominique's health and well-being," they said.

The Bucs open training camp July 28.

Touching scene after Tour begins

Minutes after winning Stage 1 of the Tour de France for the first time, Mark Cavendish joined a group of riders at a ceremony at the Utah Beach Peace Monument, which commemorates the Allied landings in Normandy more than 70 years ago. It was Cavendish's 27th stage win in the Tour, third all time. Two-time Tour winner Alberto Contador crashed midway through the stage but rode on. His Tinkoff teammates quickly helped him rejoin the peloton.

Swimming: Australian Cate Campbell broke the 100-meter freestyle world record in her homeland at the Brisbane Grand Prix. Her time of 52.06 seconds was a hundredth faster than Britta Steffen's mark, set in 2009.
