Report: Jets' Holmes suspended

New Jets' wide receiver Santonio Holmes will be suspended for the first four games of the 2010 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Holmes was acquired by the Jets from the Steelers late Sunday night for a fifth-round pick in the 2010 draft, and has faced a myriad of legal troubles over the years — he was arrested for possession of marijuana in 2008 and was involved in a domestic dispute in 2006.

Faxon said Mickelson has struggled to find time to concentrate on golf while his wife has been battling cancer, but this weekend he was able to focus on the tournament. "I think this was his first real chance to just play golf," Faxon said.

 

Asked whether Mickelson's image as a fan-friendly, family guy is at all phony, Faxon said that Mickelson's popularity is sometimes underestimated, and there is no chance of any Tiger Woods-like revelations. "No way. No way," Faxon said. "I really like this guy. He's as popular on the golf course as Tiger is. There's as many people following Phil as Tiger, and it's been that way for a long time."

 

As for Woods' "new" less-angry personality, Faxon said it's unreasonable to expect Woods...
