Last Update on August 20, 2014 21:12 GMT

NFL-JIM KELLY-CANCER

UNDATED (AP) -- Jim Kelly shows no evidence of sinus cancer three months after the Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame quarterback completed radiation and chemotherapy treatments.

Dr. Peter Costantino says in a release issued by New York City's Lennox Hill Hospital that the treatments have "completely eliminated" any pain Kelly was experiencing. He says Kelly's level of function has "essentially returned to normal."

Costantino says a series of tests over the next week will determine if further treatments are necessary.

Kelly had surgery in June 2013 to remove cancerous cells in his upper jaw. The cancer then spread to his sinus.

NFL-BROWNS-QUARTERBACKS

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns coach Mike Pettine (PEHT'-ihn) has picked Brian Hoyer as starting quarterback over rookie Johnny Manziel (man-ZEHL').

Pettine met with his coaching staff Tuesday night and announced in a release before Wednesday practice that he'll go with Hoyer in the Sept. 7 opener against Pittsburgh. The decision ends weeks of competition and analysis.

Pettine delayed his decision after both Hoyer and Manziel played poorly in an exhibition loss at Washington on Monday. During that game, Manziel gave the finger to the Redskins sideline, an act Pettine says was factored into the decision.

Hoyer didn't win the job over Manziel as much as he hung onto it after beginning training camp as the No. 1 quarterback. Hoyer made three starts before a season-ending knee injury in 2013.

NFL-PAT EXPERIMENT

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Eight extra-point kicks were missed during the NFL's experiment that moved the distance of the kicks back in the first two weeks of the preseason.

The 94.3 percent success rate was below the regular season rate of 99.6 percent from 2013 when the ball was snapped from the 2-yard line instead of the 15. Only five of 1,267 short kicks were missed in 2013.

All of this summer's misses came with the ball snapped from the 15.

NFL officiating director Dean Blandino says he believes longer PAT kicks are "in the league's near future."

NFL- TEAM VALUES

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Dallas Cowboys are the first U.S. sports franchise to top $3 billion in value.

For the eighth straight year, the Cowboys are worth the most of all 32 NFL franchises, according to Forbes. They're valued at $3.2 billion. Only soccer's Real (ray-EHL') Madrid at $3.4 billion is worth more among global franchises.

New England is the second most valuable NFL franchise at $2.6 billion, followed by Washington at $2.4 billion and the Giants at $2.1 billion.

The average NFL franchise value for 2014 is $1.43 billion, the highest in the 17 years the business magazine has tracked professional football.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- It's eight wins and counting for the Washington Nationals.

The National League East leaders try to keep that winning run going when they continue their home series against Arizona as part of a full 15-game major league schedule. Washington sends 12-game winner Tanner Roark to the mound in an effort to add to its longest winning streak since August 2012.

Kansas City is the other team that's streaking right now. The Royals have won 22 of 27.

The best pitching match-up on paper will take place tonight in St. Louis, where the Cardinals host Cincinnati. The Reds hand the ball to Johnny Cueto (KWAY'-toh) who takes a shot at becoming the first 16-game winner in the majors this season. He's 15-6 with a 2.06 ERA and 187 strikeouts, both second best in the National League. St. Louis counters with Lance Lynn, who heads into the start with a 13-8 record. He's allowed two or fewer runs in 11 of his last 13 starts.

Rick Porcello goes after his 14th win of the season when he gets the start for Detroit at Tampa Bay. He's coming off one of his worst outings of the season, giving up six runs and 10 hits in six innings.

Garrett Richards takes a three-game winning streak into his start for the Angels at Boston tonight. Included in that run is a victory over the Red Sox. Richards is 13-4 for the AL West leaders.

In afternoon action;

-- Alex Rios drove in a pair of runs to help Texas edge Miami 5-4. The Rangers teed off on Marlins starter Nathan Eovaldi for five runs in the first two innings. Miami got solo homers in the ninth inning from Marcell Ozuna and pinch-hitter Jarrod Saltalamacchia (sahl-tah-lah-MAH'-kee-ah) to make it close.

-- Chase Utley's tie-breaking single in the bottom of the fourth inning capped a three-run rally and gave Philadelphia a 4-3 win over Seattle. The Phillies scored the other two runs in that inning on a passed ball and ground out.

MLB-INDIANS-SWISHER SURGERY

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Indians first baseman Nick Swisher is having surgery on both knees and is done for the season.

Swisher has underperformed after getting a four-year, $56 million contract from the Indians before last season. He's having arthroscopic procedures performed on both knees in Los Angeles. The club said he'll need 8 to 10 weeks to recover.

Before he was sidelined, Swisher was batting .208 with eight home runs and 42 RBIs in 97 games.

MLB-SCHILLING-CANCER

BOSTON (AP) -- Former major league pitcher Curt Schilling says he's battling mouth cancer and blames 30 years of chewing tobacco use.

Schilling discussed details of his cancer on WEEI-FM in Boston. He announced he had cancer in February, but had not disclosed what kind.

Schilling is being treated at Brigham and Women's Hospital and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. He received seven weeks of chemotherapy and radiation treatments and is in remission. He says he's lost 75 pounds.

TENNIS-US OPEN-WOMENE'S SEEDINGS

NEW YORK (AP) -- Top-ranked Serena Williams is seeded No. 1 as she seeks her third straight U.S. Open title.

The U.S. Tennis Association followed this week's WTA rankings in announcing the seedings.

That means that French Open runner-up Simona Halep is seeded second after reaching a career-best ranking this month.

Wimbledon champ Petra Kvitova (kuh-VIHT'-oh-vuh) is seeded No. 3 with third-ranked Li Na out because of a knee injury. Agnieszka Radwanska (ahg-nee-ESH'-kuh rahd-VAHN'-skuh) moves up to No. 4.

Five-time major champ Maria Sharapova is seeded fifth, meaning there's a chance she could face Williams in the quarterfinals.
