Army back at work: Army coach Jeff Monken and his Black Knights knew the best way to honor Brandon Jackson was to return to practice with a purpose. So that's what the team did Monday, a day after Jackson, a 20-year-old sophomore defensive back from Queens, N.Y., died in a single-car crash. "Right from the get-go and just being out there was therapeutic for our team," Monken said Tuesday. "I think they were just glad to be out there together, and to be able to feel like they were doing something together to honor Brandon." The fatal accident occurred at around 1:50 a.m. Sunday about 20 miles south of the West Point campus, according to police and the U.S. Military Academy. The crash remains under investigation.

North Carolina: A magistrate issued an arrest warrant for Allen Artis, a 21-year-old junior linebacker, who is accused of sexual battery and assault on a woman in February. The warrant says he had sex with the woman while she was "mentally incapacitated and physically helpless."
