+++NFL payday

Lawyers representing former NFL players in the proposed $US765million ($F1,433.38m) settlement of thousands of concussion-related claims detailed on Monday how the money would be divided.

The awards could reach $US5m ($F9.37m) for athletes with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's disease; $US4m ($F7.49m) for a death involving brain trauma.

Players unhappy

A group of retired NBA players has denounced Dennis Rodman's trip to North Korea, saying the game he is organising there will not bring cultures together.

Rodman is a former NBA superstar known more for his tattoos, body piercings, dyed hair and over-the-top lifestyle as his on-court feats.

Jesus out

Manchester City winger Jesus Navas will miss Wednesday's League Cup semi-final first leg at home to West Ham United with a knee injury, manager Manuel Pellegrini revealed.

The 28-year-old Spaniard played as a second-half substitute in his side's 1-1 draw at Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup on Saturday, although his injury is not serious, Pellegrini does not want to take any chances.

Broken rib

South African quick Dale Steyn is expected to be fit for next month's series opener against Australia despite suffering a broken rib during the second Test against India.

Steyn is set to need up to four weeks to recover from the injury which he sustained while fielding in the 10-wicket win.
