Sport: Viewing Picks for August 6, 2021

Wild prospect Matt Boldy out four to six weeks with ankle fracture

  Wild prospect Matt Boldy out four to six weeks with ankle fracture Matt Boldy is one of Minnesota’s top prospects after being the 12th overall pick back in 2019.  Boldy wrapped up his college career last season at Boston College with 31 points in 22 games to lead the Eagles in scoring before turning pro and finishing up the year in the minors with AHL Iowa.  He averaged more than a point per game there as well with 18 points in 14 contests, putting him in a spot to make a legitimate push for a regular role in Minnesota’s lineup coming into training camp.

Phone call, worn underwear, Sharpie: How Ariel Torres' historic Olympic medal quest in karate began

  Phone call, worn underwear, Sharpie: How Ariel Torres' historic Olympic medal quest in karate began For karateka Ariel Torres, the first American to win an Olympic medal in karate, the road to Tokyo started with a call, worn underwear and a Sharpie. Your browser does not support this video Five years before he took bronze in men’s kata at the Tokyo Games, 18-year-old Torres received a call from his sensei, Robert Young of Goju-Ryu Miami Kenseikan. Young told Torres that karate was being added to the Olympic program for 2020. However, karate wouldn’t be featured at the 2024 Paris Olympics, so Torres needed to spend the next four years working toward qualification.

Tua Tagovailoa: 'I don’t not feel wanted' by Dolphins

  Tua Tagovailoa: 'I don’t not feel wanted' by Dolphins Tagovailoa is left in a tough spot as rumors linking his team to Deshaun Watson continue to swirl.According to the latest reports, the Texans and Miami Dolphins have maybe agreed to the terms of a potential transaction that hasn't yet been completed because Watson is still facing 22 lawsuits alleging acts of sexual assault and misconduct and 10 criminal complaints, and there's no guarantee he won't ultimately be made ineligible to play via the commissioner's exempt list or a suspension amid ongoing police and NFL investigations.

Report: Deshaun Watson suspension unlikely even after trade

  Report: Deshaun Watson suspension unlikely even after trade One lingering question amid Deshaun Watson trade rumors is whether the quarterback would even be able to play for his new team. © Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Watson is facing at least 22 allegations of sexual misconduct, which has been a major factor in the reluctance of many teams to trade for the Houston quarterback. NFL policy gives commissioner Roger Goodell to take action against players even without criminal charges, be it via suspension or placement on the exempt list.
