The San Francisco 49ers have been preparing for months to play on without Aldon Smith over an extended period. The star linebacker received his nine-game penalty from the league Friday stemming from a series of off-field legal issues. A statement from the NFL said Smith had violated the NFL's substance abuse and personal conduct policies. Smith won't be eligible to return until Nov. 10, the day after the 49ers' game against the New Orleans Saints.

Tony Stewart took his seat on the podium - unshaven, his eyes glassy - and unfolded a sheet of paper. His voice quivered as he read, pausing to maintain his composure as he described the death of a driver he hit as ''one of the toughest tragedies I've ever had to deal with.'' This was a far cry from the brash driver known around the track as ''Smoke.'' Ninety minutes later, he climbed into his No. 14 car and sped toward the high-banked oval at Atlanta Motor Speedway, drawing a cheer from the crowd gathered around his garage. Describing himself as heartbroken but eager to heal, Stewart rejoined the race for the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship surrounded by those he considers a second family - his team, his crew, his rivals. He missed the last three races, going into seclusion after the sprint car he was driving struck and killed 20-year-old Kevin Ward Jr., who had stepped on the track to confront him during a race.

A day before facing Venus Williams - and a partisan crowd - at the U.S. Open, Italy's Sara Errani came across a video posted on Twitter that gave her a little extra motivation. It showed a pair of former players and coaches, Brad Gilbert and Darren Cahill, forecasting Friday at Flushing Meadows. The 13th-seeded Errani's ears perked up particularly when Gilbert referred to her ''cottage cheese'' serve and predicted she'd win only four games.
