    NFL: Preseason-Philadelphia Eagles at Green Bay Packers(Reuters) - Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson, who has been trying to recover from a right knee injury that sidelined him in 2015, has tweaked his other knee leading the team to put him on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. No one needs to freak out," Nelson told NFL.com on Tuesday. "But we're all on the same page, we're going to be back hopefully -- not worried about it." Nelson was knocked out of the 2015 campaign a year ago during the preseason when he injured his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

    Baseball/MLB - Ichiro inches closer to 3,000th hitIchiro Suzuki moved within three hits of his 3,000th Major League Baseball hit on Tuesday with a one-for-five performance at the plate in the Miami Marlins' 5-0 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. The 42-year-old Marlins outfielder had already etched a piece of baseball history in June, when he took his total of professional hits past Pete Rose's fabled record of 4,256 -- more than 1,000 of which came while playing in Japan. Ichiro, one of a few global sports icons predominantly known by his first name, sparked joy back home in Japan after overtaking Rose's total -- although some in the US, including Rose himself, have downplayed the achievement.

    Jason Day skipped practice Tuesday over the par-70, 7,428-yard Baltusrol layout and opted for another rest dayJason Day has opted for rest over practice before defending his world number one status and his first major title when the 98th PGA Championship tees off Thursday at Baltusrol. Day, who hosted a champions dinner Tuesday night at the course, intends to play a full first practice round Wednesday at Baltusrol before playing the first two rounds alongside four-time major winner Rory McIlroy and five-time major champion Phil Mickelson. American Dustin Johnson, who won his first major at last month's US Open, would overtake Day for the top ranking spot if he wins and the Aussie finishes worse than a two-way share of second -- or if Johnson is a solo runner-up and Day is 29th or worse.
