Three men were charged with murder yesterday in the shooting of a football player on the University of Memphis campus during an attempted robbery, authorities said. Police said there were rumors around campus that Taylor Bradford, 21, had won more than $3,000 at a nearby casino the night before police found him Sept. 30 in his car, which had crashed into a tree a few blocks from his campus apartment. Memphis Police Director Larry Godwin said the attackers intended to rob him, but didn't get what they had come for. The Memphis men, who are not students at the university, were identified as DaeShawn Tate, 21; Victor Trezevant, 21; and Courtney Washington, 22. All three were in police custody.

A lengthy examination and an MRI confirmed that rookie Speedy Claxton would miss the entire 2000-2001 season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, the 76ers announced yesterday. Team physician Jack McPhilemy had made the original diagnosis shortly after the point guard was hurt with 6 minutes, 20 seconds left in the first half of Sunday's preseason game against the Utah Jazz at the First Union Center. The injury was not a result of contact. It was described by both McPhilemy and Sixers coach Larry Brown as something that just happens in basketball.

Williams sustained major injuries when he was involved in a one-car accident early in the morning of Oct. 24. Williams had surgery to repair the posterior cruciate ligament, the lateral collateral ligament, the biceps femoris tendon and the lateral meniscus.

The St. Louis Rams, suddenly short of running backs, are considering giving Lawrence Phillips another look. "You have to consider it because we still have a lot of games to play," Rams coach Dick Vermeil told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Rams spokesman Rick Smith said yesterday there were no immediate plans to bring Phillips in for a tryout. Phillips rushed for 1,265 yards and scored 13 touchdowns in 25 games with the Rams before being released last November. He finished the 1997 season with Miami, but was cut by the Dolphins this preseason.

Robert Griffin III tried to sidestep the question in the same way he evades defensive linemen. The Redskins quarterback engineered Sunday's 27-20 win over the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field, basically playing on one leg. After a 38-21 loss to the Cleveland Browns last week with a knee injury, a mild sprain to his right lateral collateral ligament, Griffin completed 16 of 24 passes for 198 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. He had a 102.4 passer rating. But Griffin did not run much, with just two carries for 4 yards.

Robert Griffin III underwent reconstructive knee surgery Wednesday and faces a challenging rehab if he is to return for the start of next season. The Washington Redskins quarterback had his lateral collateral ligament repaired and his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee reconstructed for a second time. The surgery was performed in Florida by orthopedist James Andrews, who was optimistic that Griffin would be back on the field this fall. "We expect a full recovery, and it is everybody's hope and belief that due to Robert's high motivation, he will be ready for the 2013 season," Andrews said in a statement released by the Redskins.

IF ADRIAN PETERSON can do it, maybe Robert Griffin III can, too. Peterson set an incredible standard this season for NFL players returning from major knee surgery, nearly breaking the NFL single-season rushing record. Griffin need look nowhere else for an inspiration as the Washington Redskins quarterback begins the road back from an operation Wednesday on two ligaments in his right knee. "I think it gives motivation to everyone," said Russ Paine, a physical therapist in Houston who worked with Peterson as the Minnesota Vikings running back went through rehab.

Trudging through the quagmire of Heinz Field, the Dolphins and Steelers nearly went all night without scoring. Instead, what they ended up with was the lowest-scoring game in 14 years when Jeff Reed's 24-yard field goal with 17 seconds left gave the host Steelers a 3-0 victory last night over winless Miami (0-11). It was the first 3-0 game in the NFL since the Jets beat visiting Washington on Dec. 11, 1993. Hanging with the division-leading Steelers (8-3) for 59 1/2 minutes in the longest scoreless tie since the Lions and Giants on Nov. 11, 1943, the Dolphins couldn't get the game to overtime.
