Chicago  Bears  quarterback Jay Cutler will  sit out Monday's game against the
San  Francisco 49ers  while he is still recovering from a concussion and Jason
Campbell  will get  the start. Cutler was  hurt during last week's loss to the
Houston  Texans when he absorbed a hard hit to the head late in the first half
by linebacker Tim Dobbins. After Cutler stayed in the game and played the rest
of the second quarter, Campbell took over under center for the second half and
completed  11-of-19  passes for 94 yards  in the 13-6 loss. Campbell, a former
first-round  pick  of the  Washington Redskins, started  six games for Oakland
last  year  before suffering a  broken collarbone and  losing his job when the
Raiders  acquired  Carson Palmer  in a  trade with Cincinnati.  He has a 31-39
record as a starter.


Philadelphia  Eagles quarterback  Michael Vick  will not  play Sunday  against
Washington  as he  continues to recover from a concussion, meaning rookie Nick
Foles  will  make his  first NFL  start. Eagles  head coach  Andy Reid made it
official  on  Friday, declaring  Vick out. The  veteran signal-caller is still
dealing  with the  effects of  what Reid  earlier this  week called  a "pretty
significant" concussion, which forced him out of last Sunday's 38-23 home loss
to  the Dallas Cowboys. Trainer Rick Burkholder said Vick is still bothered by
headaches,  lethargy and  lack of  sleep, in  addition to  earlier reports  of
sensitivity to light. Vick took an "impact test" on Friday and performed below
his  baseline, and  will have another one  on Monday. Foles took over for Vick
last  week  and threw  for 219  yards while completing  22-of-32 passes with a
touchdown. He also threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown and
lost  a fumble that was recovered by Dallas in the end zone for another score,
as the Eagles lost their fifth straight game to fall to 3-6.

=== NBA ===

The  New  Orleans Hornets have  given general  manager Dell Demps a multi-year
contract  extension.  Demps is beginning his  third year as the club's general
manager and has the team off to a 3-3 start heading into Friday's game against
Oklahoma  City. The  Hornets were  46-36 in  Demps' first  season as  GM, then
underwent  a complete transformation last year after losing forward David West
to  free agency  and trading  guard Chris  Paul to  the Clippers.  New Orleans
finished 21-45 during the lockout-shortened campaign, but had a pair of top-10
picks  in the  2012  draft and  selected Anthony  Davis  first overall  before
choosing Austin Rivers with the 10th pick.

=== BASEBALL ===

The  Chicago  Cubs made  it official  Friday and agreed  to terms with catcher
Dioner Navarro on a one-year contract worth a reported $1.75 million. Navarro,
a  2008 American League All-Star with Tampa Bay, appeared in just 24 games for
the  Cincinnati Reds  last season, spending much of the campaign with Triple-A
Louisville. He hit .290 with a pair of homers and 12 runs batted in at the big
league  level after  batting .319 in the minors. The 28-year-old switch-hitter
has  also played  for the Yankees and  Dodgers, and is a career .245 hitter in
626 big league games.


The  Detroit Tigers and free agent outfielder Torii Hunter agreed on Friday to
a  two-year contract through the 2014 season. Financial terms of the deal were
not  released, but it is reported to be worth $26 million. The 16-year veteran
batted a career-high .313 with 24 doubles, 16 home runs and 92 RBI through 140
games  for  the Los  Angeles Angels  of Anaheim last  season. A nine-time Gold
Glove  winner and four-time  All Star, Hunter is a career .277 hitter with 406
doubles,  297  homers and 1,143 RBI  over 1,947 games with the Minnesota Twins
(1997-2007) and Angels (2008-12).


Rick Majerus will not return as Saint Louis head men's basketball coach due to
lingering health issues. Majerus originally announced he was taking a leave of
absence in late August as he was set to undergo treatment and evaluation for a
persistent  and serious heart ailment out in California. That course of action
has  apparently  been extended for  an indefinite  period of time, and interim
head  coach Jim  Crews will  continue to  lead the  team going  forward. Under
Crews,  the Billikens have split their first two games, a win over USC Upstate
and  a  loss to  Santa Clara.  Texas A&M is  next on  the slate, scheduled for
Monday.  In  just five years as  SLU's head coach, the 64-year-old Majerus put
the  men's  basketball program  back on  the national  map, leading the Jesuit
program  to a 95-69  record. Last season, he guided the Billikens to the third
round  of the  NCAA Tournament,  SLU's first  NCAA appearance  since 2000.  In
addition,  the  Billikens topped Memphis  in the  second round for their first
NCAA Tournament win since 1998. Saint Louis entered the national polls for the
first time since 1994-95.

=== TENNIS ===

David  Ferrer has given  Spain a 1-0 lead over the Czech Republic in the Davis
Cup  final  after claiming  a straight-set win  against Radek Stepanek. Ferrer
posted  a 6-3, 6-4,  6-4 victory in the first singles match to improve to 22-4
lifetime  in Davis  Cup matches. Nicolas Almagro is currently on the court for
Spain  in Friday's  second singles match, while Tomas Berdych will try to even
the  best-of-five  tie for  the host  Czechs. Spain,  which is playing without
injured  superstar Rafael  Nadal, has  won three  of the  last four  Davis Cup
titles, including a 5-0 sweep of the Czechs in the 2009 finale.
