Kansas Shooting Kills 1 Football Player and Injures a New York Giants Draft Pick: Police

(TOPEKA, Kan.) — Washburn University’s joy over one of its own going to the pros quickly shifted to grief this weekend after a shooting killed a current Washburn football player and wounded the former member of the team who was drafted by the New York Giants just hours earlier.

Police in Topeka, Kansas, where the university is located, said officers found 23-year-old defensive back Dwane Simmons dead when they investigated gunshots shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday. Cornerback Corey Ballentine was wounded, but his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening. Ballentine, also 23, grew up in Topeka and was picked by the Giants on Saturday in the sixth round of the NFL draft.

“This was a terrible way to end a day which should have been a day of celebration and a day to look forward to Dwane’s upcoming year at Washburn and the beginning of Corey’s professional career,” Washburn president Jerry Farley said.

Washburn coach Craig Schurig said Simmons’ death is heartbreaking. He said Simmons, a junior from Lee’s Summit, Missouri, maintained a great attitude even while battling through two knee injuries.

“Dwane is one of the most energetic and well-liked players I have ever coached at Washburn,” Schurig said. “Dwane’s infectious smile and love for football and his teammates was truly inspirational.”

Farley said both Simmons and Ballentine have been great representatives of the university.

Police did not immediately release any additional details about the circumstances of the shooting.

It’s not yet clear how Ballentine’s injuries from the shooting might affect his football career. In a statement Sunday, the Giants said, “We are aware of the tragic situation and continue to gather information. We have spoken to Corey, and he is recovering in the hospital. Our thoughts are with Dwane Simmons’ family, friends and teammates and the rest of the Washburn community.”

Giants QB Kyle Lauletta pleads guilty to disorderly charge

New York Giants rookie quarterback Kyle Lauletta pleaded guilty Tuesday to a disorderly persons offense and two tickets for an improper turn and disregarding an officer’s instructions back in October, according to his lawyer Gerald Krovatin. The criminal charges of eluding police and the subsequent disorderly persons charges were dropped Tuesday in Hudson County Court. Lauletta will have all charges dropped if he avoids further trouble over the next 12 months as part of the conditional dismissal program in New Jersey. Lauletta was arrested in October for various motor vehicle and related disorderly persons offenses pertaining to a traffic violation in Weehawken, New Jersey. The police alleged he tried to make a right turn from the wrong lane in his Jaguar to get to Route 495 West for the second straight day. He was told to keep going straight, but Lauletta almost struck an officer while making the illegal turn and then "refused various instructions" after…

GM Dave Gettleman: OBJ part of Giants’ plans, Eli Manning still under review

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Giants made it clear that wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is part of their current plans, while quarterback Eli Manning’s future remains uncertain. General manager Dave Gettleman on Wednesday declined to commit to Manning for next season, despite being complimentary of his ability and statistics this season. Manning, who turns 38 on Thursday, has one year remaining on his contract and is set to count $ 23.2 million against the salary cap in 2019. "I’m committed to making the best decision in the interest of the New York Football Giants," Gettleman said when asked if Manning would return for his 16th season. "We’re in the evaluation process. OK, I know that you guys want answers now, but very frankly I didn’t come in [New Year’s Day].

How to Watch Tonight’s ‘Monday Night Football’ Giants vs. Falcons Game Online for Free

Tonight’s “Monday Night Football” game is the New York Giants vs. Atlanta Falcons. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET, and the NFL game is being broadcast on ESPN, although football fans have other options to view the match-up.

The Giants have one of the NFL’s most exciting players in rookie running back Saquon Barkley, but overall the team has struggled under head coach Pat Shurmur and veteran quarterback Eli Manning. The Giants are 1-5 so far in the 2018 NFL season, and are considered underdogs while on the road during “Monday Night Football.” The Giants vs. Falcons betting odds say that the 2-3 Falcons are 5.5-point favorites to win.

ESPN is a pay channel, of course, but NFL fans can watch the Giants vs. Falcons game tonight for free even if they don’t have cable. Here are the ways to watch “Monday Night Football” for free — online or on TV.

How to Live Stream the Giants vs. Falcons Game for Free

The arrival of the 2018 football season brought good news: a new option making it easy — and free — for fans to live stream NFL games on their phones.

Download the newest version of the Yahoo Sports app or the NFL app and you can live stream all of the Sunday NFL games being broadcast in your region on CBS, Fox, and NBC (including “Sunday Night Football”), as well as ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” and Fox and the NFL Network’s “Thursday Night Football.”

These apps are free to download, and it’s also free to live stream the games. The only catch is that the streams are solely available online on phones. You cannot use the apps to live stream games on a larger screen, such as a tablet, laptop, or connected TV.

How to Watch “Monday Night Football” for Free Online

If you don’t have ESPN and were hoping to watch “Monday Night Football” for free on a larger screen, consider signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes ESPN in its bundle of channels.

Streaming TV packages which feature ESPN start at $ 25 to $ 45 per month, depending on the service and the channels included. But each package comes with free trial periods for new subscribers that last about a week. New subscribers could register today and watch the ESPN broadcast of Giants vs. Falcons on “Monday Night Football” for free, and still have a few days afterwards to continue to test out the service.

Just remember to cancel before the trial period ends if you do not want to become a paying subscriber.

As for which streaming TV service is best, that’s a personal decision based mostly on your budget and the kind of channels your household watches most. The streaming TV services Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV all include ESPN with their basic packages, alongside dozens of other channels.
