Vijay Singh received a favorable ruling in his lawsuit against the PGA Tour when a judge allowed his complaint that he was treated differently from other players under the tour's anti-doping policy. The tour announced a year ago that Singh would be suspended for saying in a Sports Illustrated story that he took deer antler spray, which was believed to contain the banned substance IGF-1. Late in the appeals process, the tour dropped the case when the World Anti-Doping Agency said deer antler spray was no longer a concern. In Tuesday's order, Judge Eileen Bransten threw out five of seven elements in the tour's motion to dismiss.

Marino and Sharpe will not return to their analyst roles on CBS' ''The NFL Today'' pregame show. Gonzalez, a recently retired star tight end, will now prep for a turn on the network's pro football coverage. CBS sports chairman Sean McManus said the move to part ways with Marino and Sharpe ''was really kind of a mutual decision'' and ''has nothing to do with any dissatisfaction in the ratings.'' McManus said he has no single metric by which he measures the success of the pregame show. The former All-Pro tight end who appears destined for a spot in the Hall of Fame in Canton said he was looking for a TV job with all of the major companies that broadcast NFL games.

Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter testified Tuesday that he was essentially paid to play via his scholarship as the National Labor Relations Board opened a closely watched hearing on a bid to form what would be the first union for college athletes in U.S. history. From a witnesses stand in a federal court building, Colter characterized playing college football as a job and said schools make clear to incoming players that athletics are a higher priority than academics. Colter, a co-founder of the newly formed College Athletes Players Association, said players adhere to grueling schedules, putting in 40- to 50-hour weeks on football during and before the season.

A year after taking a major pay cut to help the Washington Redskins through their salary cap woes, DeAngelo Hall has a new deal with a nice raise. The three-time Pro Bowl cornerback agreed to terms for a four-year contract with the Redskins on Tuesday, according to a person familiar with the negotiations. That's a reversal from 2013, when the Redskins cut Hall because they couldn't afford him, then re-signed him on the cheap. With the cap penalty behind them, the Redskins have plenty of money to spend, but they have a lot of players to sign.

David Wise considers himself a dad and husband first, a freestyle skier second. Soaring through sloppy snow and sleet, Wise won the first gold medal in the young sport of halfpipe skiing Tuesday, outclassing a field in Sochi that had trouble with the slow, waterlogged conditions. Sightlines were less than perfect on the first true soaker of a night at the action-sports venue, but not so bad that Wise couldn't look down from the top and see his wife, Lexi, and the rest of his family members cheering at the base of the halfpipe. After placing a heart-shaped rock Lexi gave him into one pocket, the 23-year-old from Reno, Nev., dropped into the halfpipe and scored a 92 - a mark that held up to beat Canada's Mike Riddle by 1.4 points.

Roman Cervenka scored for a second time late in the second period to give the Czech Republic a four-goal lead, and it went on to beat Slovakia 5-3 on Tuesday and advance to an Olympic quarterfinal match against the United States. ''We're one game away to play for a medal and that's pretty special,'' David Krejci said after scoring the third of the Czechs' first-period goals. They pulled their goaltender to create an even-strength situation and Tomas Plekanec scored an empty-net goal 14 seconds later for the Czechs. ''We got the job done, that's the most important thing,'' said Krejci, a Boston Bruins forward.

Lauryn Williams and Elana Meyers laughed off smashing their bobsled into a wall a few days ago, knowing this wasn't the time to let anything get in their way of winning an Olympic medal. And for Williams, a special place in Olympic history is within reach. Williams, a former sprint champion who decided to give bobsled a whirl six months ago, and Meyers lead at the halfway point of women's Olympic bobsled, which has turned into a three-team race with two of them decked out in red, white and blue. With Williams using her world-class speed to propel her teammate off the starting line, Meyers made two trips down the Sanki Sliding Center track in 1 minute, 54.89 seconds on Tuesday to open a 0.23-second lead over Canada's Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse, trying to win their second straight title after getting gold in Vancouver.

Jorrit Bergsma wouldn't go along with the storyline. This was supposed to be about Sven Kramer's redemption, the place where the world's greatest distance skater finally made up for his incredible blunder four year ago. Instead, Kramer was dealt another crushing disappointment. With a stunner of a finishing kick, Bergsma upset his favored countryman to win speedskating Olympic gold in the 10,000 meters Tuesday with the fastest time ever at sea level.

When Alexander Radulov pumped both fists and let loose a jubilant scream, an entire hockey nation also exhaled for a day. Radulov had two goals and an assist, and Russia survived its first elimination game in Sochi with a 4-0 victory Tuesday over Norway in the qualification round. Sergei Bobrovsky made 22 saves in the second straight shutout victory for the fifth-seeded Russians, who earned a meeting with Finland in the quarterfinals Wednesday. ''It is do-or-die games right now,'' said Alex Ovechkin, who hasn't scored a goal in three games.

Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito offered apologies to teammate Jonathan Martin, team owner Stephen Ross and investigator Ted Wells on Tuesday in the wake of the NFL-ordered report detailing a racially charged bullying scandal. The report stated there was a ''pattern of harassment'' committed by Incognito and teammates John Jerry and Mike Pouncey that extended to two Dolphins linemen and an assistant trainer, all targets of vicious taunts and racist insults. On his Twitter account, Incognito wrote, ''I would like to send Jonathan my apologies as well.
