Kabuki comes from the Japanese words ka (music), bu (dance) and ki (acting). Kabuki theater is characterized by elaborate pageantry and highly stylized movement. It uses bold scenery, intricate face painting and beautifully detailed costumes to tell dramatic, heroic stories. The foregoing was cribbed verbatim from an information sheet furnished by the People's Light and Theater Co. of Chester County, which last night presented the U.S. debut of "Achilles," adapted from Homer's epic poem "The Iliad" and staged in the Kabuki style.

TAMPA, Fla. - Domonic Brown was removed from last night's game against the Yankees before the bottom of the third inning with left Achilles' soreness. Brown said he will see a doctor this morning. He has been bothered by the injury for the last 2 weeks. The pain grew worse yesterday when he retreated to the rightfield fence in pursuit of a ball Chase Headley hit for a home run in the second inning. "I want to be in there, spring training or not," said Brown, who was scratched from Monday's game due to dehydration.

If his comeback is to continue, oft-injured 76ers center Jeff Ruland will just have to find out where television's "Six Million Dollar Man" gets those bionic body parts. A grimacing Ruland played only three minutes in the Sixers' 119-86 rout of the Minnesota Timberwolves last night in the Spectrum. He failed to score or to get a rebound before leaving the game with 1:16 remaining in the first quarter with what the team announced was a partial tear of his right Achilles' tendon.

Andy Reid offered a non-update on Jason Peters' condition, saying Monday morning that the Eagles tackle was out "indefinitely. " It was unclear later in the day whether the Eagles coach knew that Peters had re-ruptured his Achilles tendon, although it is likely he did since the five-time Pro Bowler once again needed surgery. But it is safe to say after this latest setback that Peters is definitely out for the 2012 season. The Eagles confirmed the injury Monday evening after Comcast SportsNet first reported that Peters re-ruptured his Achilles when the Roll-A-Bout machine he was using malfunctioned.

DORAL, Fla. - Tiger Woods' road to the Masters took a surprising detour Sunday when he withdrew after 11 holes in the Cadillac Championship because of soreness in his left Achilles tendon. It's the same Achilles that the 36-year-old injured last year at Augusta National, which eventually caused Woods to miss two majors in 2011. The severity of the injury won't be known until Woods has it evaluated. He was 10 shots out of the lead, 3-over par in the final round at Doral, when he hit a 321-yard tee shot on the par-5 12th hole, shook hands with Webb Simpson and left on a cart.

ST. LOUIS - Outside the home dugout at Busch Stadium yesterday afternoon, minutes before the Cardinals took batting practice, a herd of reporters gathered. General manager John Mozeliak announced that longtime ace Adam Wainwright had a complete tear of his left Achilles' and would miss the remainder of the season. Across the way, inside the visiting clubhouse, Ryan Howard felt for his fellow competitor. "You never want to see anyone go down with injury, especially one like that," Howard said.

Ross Martinson once felt invincible. One of those high-velocity land animals, he could run nearly forever and fast, finishing 23d in the Boston Marathon and three times in the top five of the Broad Street Run. Then, in 2008, he ran the Rock 'n' Roll distance run, finishing the half-marathon in 1 hour 6 minutes and 49 seconds. As he walked off the course, he felt some tightness in his calves. Two hours later, he was crippled with pain. "It felt like I was screwed up," he said with a runner's classic understatement.

The MRI examination of Domonic Brown's right Achilles tendon revealed what Ryne Sandberg described Monday as "good news. " There is tendinitis and bursitis near the tendon, the Phillies said. Brown will play as much as he can tolerate. Given the way Brown talks about the pain, it could limit his September performance. "It definitely could have been worse," Brown said. "But it's still tendinitis, so that explains why I play one day and the next couple of days I feel it. It feels OK right now. " Brown has started just two of the Phillies' last nine games.

Kobe Bryant tore his left Achilles tendon April 13, 2013. At the time, this news didn't mean much to Jordan Hicks, beyond his being a pro basketball fan and having a casual interest in Bryant's health. Five months later, it meant everything to him. Hicks, a linebacker whom the Eagles drafted in the third round this year out of Texas, tore his left Achilles tendon Sept. 21, 2013. He remembers the entire sequence that led to the injury, down to the finest detail: how he was in one-on-one coverage with a tight end from Kansas State named Andrew McDonald, how McDonald took off on a corner route, how Hicks was right with him until McDonald gave him just the slightest shove, how Hicks gathered himself and planted his left foot to keep up his coverage, how the tendon ruptured and in that instant a bolt of pain made his body tremble and took him to the ground.

NOBODY KNOWS better than Phillies fans how debilitating a torn Achilles' tendon can be to an athlete. Ryan Howard hasn't been the same since 2011. Soul wide receiver Ryan McDaniel tore his right Achilles' in the middle of last season. He has rebounded to become one of the best receivers in the Arena League. "There was never a doubt that he would come back and be full strength by training camp," coach Clint Dolezel said emphatically. "Never a doubt. " In fairness to Howard, McDaniel was 25 and in his second AFL season when he was hurt, while Howard was 31 and finishing his 10th professional baseball season.

BRADENTON, Fla. - Domonic Brown underwent an MRI exam Friday, a day after he was removed from a game because of a sore left Achilles tendon. The results showed no tear but revealed moderate tendinitis, a team spokesman said after the team's 6-5 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. He is listed as day-to-day, but it could be a week until he returns to the field. The rightfielder said his Achilles has been bothering him for two weeks. He left Thursday's win against the New York Yankees in the third inning.

DeMECO RYANS said yesterday that Mychal Kendricks, who has been increasingly dominant at inside linebacker since Ryans went down for the season with an Achilles' tear, "is just letting his instincts take over. " Kendricks, along with defensive end Fletcher Cox, really stood out during the Eagles' loss to Seattle last week. The team credited Kendricks with 16 tackles, 12 of them solo. "Mike has been one of our best athletes on the defensive side of the ball . . . It's really showing these last couple of games.

Friends' Central coach Ryan Tozer stopped the ball-movement drills and walked toward the free-throw line at practice, sending most of the players across the baseline. De'Andre Hunter remained on the court with two teammates. "Who wants to go in and fight?" Tozer called out, and he launched a high-arcing shot toward the backboard. The trio joined the fray, moving in for the rebound. Hunter, a 6-foot-6, 195-pound wing, snatched the basketball to win the fight. That was only fitting.

THE HOME clubhouse at Citizens Bank Park was littered with boxes yesterday morning. Before taking the field for the final game of the 2014 regular season, Phillies players packed up their things so they could exit quickly and head to their offseason homes before the end of the day. There were handshakes and hugs all around, and even some applause for rookie reliever Ken Giles, who got engaged on Saturday. Despite a season ending with the Phillies in last place for the first time in 14 seasons, the mood was pretty upbeat.

She was last seen a year ago, following the American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation for annual visits after age 3. Now 4 years old, she had no past medical history, had never been hospitalized, and had taken medicine only once, for an ear infection. Over the last few months her aunt, the primary caregiver, noticed a small bump on both of her Achilles tendons, which connect the calf muscles to the heel. She said the child would complain of pains in her ankles and sometimes hands, but the aunt looked up the symptoms online and they seemed to be growing pains.
