NEW YORK (AP) -- The battle between the NFL and Tom Brady is not over. Commissioner Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL') says the league will appeal the decision by U.S. District Judge Richard Berman that ruled in favor of Brady and erased his four-game suspension for "Deflategate."

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy says the league will not seek an emergency stay of Berman's decision. That leaves Brady free to start the season while the appeals court considers the case.

The Patriots open Sept. 10 against Pittsburgh.

Brady's availability for the season opener already has affected business in Las Vegas. The Patriots were favored by three points when it appeared Brady wouldn't be available. Now that he's eligible to play, the Pats are favored by seven.

In his ruling, Berman came out forcefully in Brady's favor. The judge maligned the NFL for its handling of the scandal that erupted after the AFC championship game in January, when officials discovered during the first half that Brady used underinflated footballs. New England beat the Indianapolis Colts 45-7 then won the Super Bowl two weeks later.


FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Tom Brady was not in uniform for the New England Patriots' final preseason game, against the New York Giants.

Several fans chanted "BRADY, BRADY," when the team came out of the locker room into the bowl of the stadium, but the quarterback was nowhere to be seen. One sign read: "Justice Prevails. Go Pats!" Another had: "Free Brady."

The Gillette Stadium speakers also played The Who's "I'm Free." From the rock opera "Tommy," of course.

Recently signed Ryan Lindley, a third-stringer at best, started the game.


DENVER (AP) -- Pro Bowl safety T.J. Ward has been suspended for Denver's opener against Baltimore over a nightclub incident that happened more than 15 months ago.

Ward was charged with misdemeanor assault and disturbing the peace for allegedly throwing a glass mug at a female bartender at a Denver strip club in May 2014. Those charges were later dropped.

The incident came shortly after Ward signed a four-year, $22.5 million deal in Denver.

Ward is the second Denver defender to get suspended. Derek Wolfe received a four-game ban for violating the NFL's drug policy.


UNDATED (AP) -- J.B. Shuck's pinch-hit, two-run triple in the seventh inning lifted the White Sox past Minnesota 6-4. Chicago rallied from three-runs down after Eddie Rosario hit a grand slam. The Twins drop 1 1/2 games back of Texas for the second AL wildcard berth.


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Tigers have activated left-hander Kyle Lobstein from the 60-day disabled list to start the opener of a weekend series against the Cleveland Indians. Lobstein was 3-5 with a 4.34 ERA in eight starts before going on the DL in late May with a sore left shoulder.


Murray rallies from 2 sets down

NEW YORK -- Andy Murray rallied from down two sets to win his second-round match at the U.S. Open.

The third-seeded Murray beat 35th-ranked Adrian Mannarino 5-7, 4-6, 6-1, 6-3, 6-1, dominating the last three sets.

Murray is 35-1 in Grand Slam second-round matches, with the only loss coming in his U.S. Open debut a decade ago.

It was the eighth time in his career Murray came back to win from two sets.

Women's second-seed Simona Halep (HAL'-ehp) has advanced to the third round of the U.S. Open with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Kateryna Bondarenko. Petra Kvitova (kuh-VIHT'-oh-vuh), the fifth seed, easily beat a second straight opponent ranked outside the top 100, pounding American Nicole Gibbs 6-3, 6-4 in 70 minutes to reach the third round.

French Open champ Stan Wawrinka (vah-VRINK'-ah) made it into the third round, but not without a battle. He was pushed to a 7-6, 7-6, 7-6 win over 19-year old Chung Hyeon.

Andy Murray rallied from down two sets to win his second-round match at the U.S. Open.

The third-seeded Murray beat 35th-ranked Adrian Mannarino 5-7, 4-6, 6-1, 6-3, 6-1 on Thursday, dominating the last three sets.

Men's second seed, Roger Federer, has his second round match this evening.

Also today two-time major winner Lleyton Hewitt has his second-round match. He'll be facing fellow Australian Bernard Tomic (tahm'-ihk).

Each match is big for Hewitt, the winner of the event four years ago, as he has announced this will be his last U.S. Open. He plans on retiring following next January's Australian Open.


NEW YORK (AP) -- The owner of American Pharoah says the Triple Crown winner will run again before he is retired at the end of the year. Ahmed Zayat tweeted "The champ deserves another chance!"

After American Pharoah finished second in the Travers Stakes on Saturday Zayat said his "gut feeling" was retirement. But after a four-hour meeting with trainer Bob Baffert and others, Zayat decided to keep going.

American Pharoah has won eight of 10 races and earned nearly $6 million.
