Safety Keelan Johnson returned to the Eagles on Thursday after missing four practices because of an arrest on assault charges. Johnson was excused from the team after he met with coach Chip Kelly on July 24. In that meeting, Kelly told Johnson that he did not want to cut the second-year player. "He could easily have gotten rid of me," Johnson said. "It was a situation I wish I could avoid. Just give it to [Kelly] and this organization. " Johnson would not comment on the details of his arrest.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The finishing pieces still believe the team for which they chose to play is close to winning again. The Phillies lavishly paid rightfielder Marlon Byrd and closer Jonathan Papelbon as they tried to complete a star-studded roster. They signed them because they expected to contend for a playoff spot. Instead, when the non-waiver trade deadline passed at 4 p.m. yesterday, the Phillies had the third-worst record in the National League, stood 12 1/2 games out of first place in the NL East behind the host Nationals and 14 games below .500.

The Phillies made three roster moves before Monday's game at Citizens Bank Park against the San Francisco Giants. The most difficult move was designating outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. for assignment. Just last month, Gwynn's father, Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, died. "It was tough with Tony with everything he's gone through," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said before the game. "He's a very professional guy, a terrific teammate, so it's tough. " Sandberg said that Gwynn could still remain with the organization.

AMONG THE never-ending games of what-if played repeatedly over the last few summers here, the what-if-Pat-Gillick had stayed game probably does not get enough plays. At the very least, it is far less popular than the what-if-they-had-picked-Mike-Arbuckle-as-GM game. And yet there is far more evidence to make the case that things would have been different if Pat remained general manager than if Mike was made one, evidence supplied in his previous stops in Toronto, Baltimore and Seattle.

Scott Laughton stood at the front of his line, poised to skate, before each end-to-end drill on Thursday. On the first day of Flyers developmental camp, Laughton glided through most of the exercises, the first skater to reach the other end of the ice. Still just 20 years old with a thin chin-strap beard, the Flyers' 2012 first-round pick is a veteran of sorts at the prospect camp, and he carried himself like one. This year, the stakes are different...

FOLLOWING HIS team's recent U.S. Open Cup victory against the New York Cosmos, Union interim manager Jim Curtin alluded to reinforcements to come after the World Cup. It's now evident that one potential lineup fortification could come via a player already on Philadelphia's roster. Curtin said yesterday the Union is "in close communication with" and "actively looking" at center back Carlos Valdes, who's in Brazil competing in the World Cup with the Colombian national team. The Union still owns the rights to Valdes, a defender for the team in 65 matches during the 2011 and 2012 seasons.

THOUGH THE VISION for the 76ers' brass is focused years away, as evidenced by last week's draft from which their top two picks probably won't play for them this season, there still is the responsibility of fielding a team for this coming campaign. Seven players are on the payroll (Thaddeus Young, Jason Richardson, Nerlens Noel, Michael Carter-Williams, Eric Maynor, Tony Wroten and Arnett Moultrie). Maynor already was bought out, and it wouldn't be surprising if Richardson, who is scheduled to make $6.6 million this season and is coming off major knee surgery, and Moultrie, who is to make $1.1 million but tested positive for marijuana last season and possessed a salty attitude, also are given deals to move on. The team also has options on guard Elliot Williams and center Jarvis Varnado, each for just under $1 million.

THE PHILLIES placed Carlos Ruiz on the 7-day disabled list with concussionlike systems yesterday, about an hour before the game against the Braves. In the 11th inning of the team's 14-inning win Thursday night, a 1-1 breaking ball from Marlins righthander A.J. Ramos plunked Ruiz in the head. The Phillies' catcher remained in the game for the final few innings. Cameron Rupp caught Kyle Kendrick last night. To fill Ruiz's spot on the active roster, the Phillies selected the contract of Koyie Hill from Triple A Lehigh Valley.

CINCINNATI - The Phillies conceded another mistake Friday when outfielder Tyson Gillies cleared waivers and was removed from the 40-man roster. Gillies, 25, will remain in the organization. This designation was a formality; Gillies was never close to reaching the majors. He was one of three players acquired in December 2009 from Seattle for Cliff Lee. The Lee trade, to this point, is a total failure. Righthander J.C. Ramirez lasted 18 games in the majors with a 7.50 ERA before being jettisoned.
