On Thursday, Indianapolis Colts starting cornerback Marlin Jackson confirmed Thursday that he has torn his ACL and will miss the rest of the season.

This is the second straight year that Jackson has suffered a season-ending ACL injury.

The injury for Jackson is worse than it is for his team since he is scheduled to be a free agent at the conclusion of this season, and unless he can prove to be healthy, he will be cut from the team.

For the Colts, things continued to spiral downward as the team learned that cornerback Bob Sanders needs surgery to repair his injured elbow which will end his season, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN in a televised report.

After the New York Yankees won the World Series against the Philadelphia Phillies, Yankees designated hitter Hideki Matsui was named the Most Valuable Player in the World Series after a record-setting performance in the decisive Game 6.

Matsui had a .615 batting average in the series, including three home runs and eight RBIs.

Matsui drove in six of the Yankees’ seven runs in Game 6, the most by any player in a World Series clincher and becoming the first Japanese native to win World Series MVP.

Also, Matsui is only the second designated hitter to win World Series MVP after Paul Molitor, who won MVP honors with the Blue Jays in 1993.

Five other players previously shared the record of five RBIs in a World Series clincher.

In other MLB news, teams wasted no time to begin trades.

One of the hot rumors being spread around the NBA is Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James possibly being traded to the New York Knicks.

In other NBA news, many key players are suddenly being placed on the injured list. According to Fanhouse.com, Sacramento Kings point guard Kevin Martin is out indefinitely with a fractured navicular bone.

In addition, the Los Angeles Lakers suffered two losses as Pau Gasol, who has yet to play a game this season, and Andrew Bynum, are both out with injuries.
