Cody Parkey lost his job. It was Aug. 20, and the Indianapolis Colts decided to waive him. Then the kicker received a call from Colts general manager Ryan Grigson telling him that he had been traded to Philadelphia. The Eagles surrendered running back David Fluellen, whom they planned to waive. It was a swap of two unwanted players. If the Eagles hadn't traded for Parkey and tried claiming him off waivers, the kicker would have been up for grabs to the 21 teams ahead of them on the waiver wire.

Gov. Christie's three-day trade mission to Mexico will begin Wednesday with an agenda that includes a meeting with President Enrique Peña Nieto, receptions with business leaders, and a trip to a Mexican state with New Jersey connections. Christie, who is leading a state delegation to Mexico City, said his goal is to strengthen New Jersey's relationship with Mexico, which is its second-largest trading partner and has a growing presence in the Garden State. The number of residents of Mexican descent in New Jersey has doubled in the last decade to more than 217,000.

'Michelle" has been our patient since she was 4. She came in yearly for routine checkups and other minor illnesses. Beginning at age 11, she started to miss appointments, and by 12, she became "lost to follow-up. " She made sporadic appearances in our emergency department for respiratory infections, sexually transmitted diseases, and menstrual irregularities. I met Michelle when she was admitted to a local teaching hospital for recurring severe abdominal pain. Along with STDs, Michelle had a history of drug addiction, irregular menses, and runaway status, and had dropped out of school.

As he prepares to lead a trade mission to Mexico this week, Gov. Christie has been relatively silent on an issue vexing the Republican Party: immigration reform. New Jersey's famously outspoken governor, who is considering a run for president in 2016, has repeatedly attacked President Obama in recent weeks over the influx of unaccompanied children trying to cross Mexico's border into the United States. But he also has deflected questions about how he would change the country's immigration system at a time when congressional Republicans - who blocked a bill providing a path to legal status for millions of people in the country illegally - are gearing up for a battle with Obama over the possibility the president will take executive action on the issue.

Damaris Johnson sat in his locker stall after the Eagles' 37-7 preseason win over the New York Jets on Thursday night and faced an uncertain future. This is the third consecutive year Johnson entered Labor Day weekend unsure of whether he would be employed on Labor Day. His grasp on a roster spot has seemed to wane each season. Johnson impressed this preseason, helping at running back while also filling his receiver and return roles. He finished with nine catches for 90 yards and a touchdown; 12 carries for 83 yards and a touchdown; and averaged 11.8 yards per punt return and 22.6 yards per kick return.

It's no surprise 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie was satisfied with the players and draft choice he received for veteran Thaddeus Young. Hinkle spoke Tuesday afternoon on a conference call about the trade that sent Young to the Minnesota Timberwolves for two players with expiring contracts, 6-foot-8 forward Luc Mbah a Moute and 6-6 guard Alexey Shved, along with a top-10-protected first-round pick of the Miami Heat. It was part of Friday's three-team trade, with Minnesota sending Kevin Love to the Cleveland Cavaliers and getting back this year's top pick, Andrew Wiggins; last year's No. 1 overall selection, Anthony Bennett; and the first-round pick of Miami that the Timberwolves then sent to the Sixers.

IT DOESN'T appear that it was the additions of Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and Alexey Shved that prompted 76ers president and general manager Sam Hinkie to agree to the deal that sent Thaddeus Young to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a three-team trade this weekend, the same deal that sent Kevin Love from Minnesota to Cleveland and land the Timberwolves the last two No. 1 picks - Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett. As with most of the decisions that Hinkie has made during his short time with the Sixers, this move was made with the future in mind, most notable the first-round pick the Sixers acquired from the Cavs, which they owned from the Miami Heat.

Mark Sanchez started hearing from family members on Sunday evening, when word spread that St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford was out for the season. The speculation was underway on who would be his replacement. Because of Sanchez's relatively decorated resumé for a backup quarterback, an impressive preseason with the Eagles, and a history with Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, his name was floated as a possibility. Sanchez's family saw the Eagles quarterback linked to the Rams on television and asked him what he knew.

MARK SANCHEZ has been in the NFL long enough to know when a story might actually have legs and when it's just a string of speculation. So yesterday as a group of reporters crowded around his locker to ask him about the rumors that he could be traded to the St. Louis Rams, the Eagles' backup quarterback tried to defuse things before they went too far. "I haven't heard a thing from the people who would make those kinds of decisions," said Sanchez,...

There is no now. There is only the future. The Cleveland Cavaliers were the big winners, getting Kevin Love to pair with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. Minnesota received last year's first overall pick, Anthony Bennett, along with this year's top selection, Andrew Wiggins.
