The New York Times is reporting that Roger Clemens will be indicted as early as today on charges that he lied to Congress about his use of performance-enhancing drugs. Clemens told a Congressional committee in 2008 that he hadn’t used PEDs and that his ex-trainer Brian McNamee had made up such allegations. McNamee was forced to cooperate with federal authorities in order to escape steroid distribution charges.

Mashup: Damon's return to Bronx turns sour

Johnny Damon's return to Yankee Stadium as a Detroit Tiger this week turned ugly. In the ninth inning of Monday night's game, Yankee Brett Gardner slid into Tigers second baseman Carlos Guillen on a double play and sent Guillen to the disabled list. Wednesday night, Gardner was one of three players hit by a pitch, and Damon called Gardner's play "dirty" and accused the Yankees of throwing at Miguel Cabrera, which led to Tigers manager Jim Leyland's ejection. Read more about that story, plus check out which columnists are ripping Brett Favre for his latest comeback, at Thursday's Morning Mashup.

Ryan invites Dungy to visit Jets camp

Jets coach Rex Ryan continued to defend himself for his foul-mouthed language on HBO's "Hard Knocks," and Ryan got emotional when talking about the crititicism he received from former Colts coach and current NBC NFL analyst Tony Dungy.

 

“I’m always going to be myself, and I’m a good person,” Ryan said, with his voice cracking slightly. “Just because somebody cusses or whatever doesn’t make him a bad person, and just because a guy doesn’t cuss doesn’t make him a good person. I’ll stand by my merits.”

 

Ryan said he called Dungy and left a message with his telephone number.

 

"The thing is, I've been a big admirer of Tony Dungy, and I'm sure a lot of people are," Ryan said. "I felt that he unfairly judged me, and that was disappointing to me." Added Ryan: "I've invited him to come to camp or any time to spend...

Fan injured in fall off Fenway staircase

According to multiple reports, a fan was taken to the hospital with head and neck injuries after falling off a staircase and about 15 feet to the ground during Wednesday's Red Sox game. Witnesses said the man was unconscious and lying in a pool of blood, with cuts on his face, after he fell off the stairwell by the right field roof deck and landed face-first on the ground.

 

"He had blood on his eye. ... It looked like he was hit by a foul ball," one witness told WHDH-TV (Channel 5).

Ellsbury: 'I knew I broke it when it happened'

Speaking to WEEI.com after the Red Sox' 7-5 win over the Angels Wednesday night at Fenway Park, Jacoby Ellsbury said the rib that he broke when colliding with Texas pitcher Tommy Hunter Friday night was the same one he had dealt with since colliding with Adrian Beltre on April 11, residing just under the scapula bone in his back.

 

"Nothing new has been injured since the collision with Beltre," he noted. "Nothing."

 

The outfielder also said he knew immediately after colliding with Hunter that he had broken the rib, yet he chose to remain in the game, hitting three more times before being replaced in center field by Eric Patterson in the fourth inning.

 

"I knew I broke it when it happened," Ellsbury said. "I knew right away."

 

Ellsbury explained that even after he had come off the 15-day disabled list and resumed playing on Aug. 4 it felt...
