Matt Sullivan/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon failed another drug test and will now face a one-year suspension, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reports.

Gordon tested positive for alcohol, a source said, confirming a report by Pro Football Talk. 

Gordon was suspended at the end of the season for violating team rules after missing the first 10 games of the season, to go along with being arrested for driving while impaired after speeding down a street in Raleigh, North Carolina during the summer.

Prior to that arrest, he was suspended the first two games of the 2013 season for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.

Posted in World News

Pontuse/iStock/Thinkstock(MAIDUGURI, Nigeria) — Hundreds of thousands of Nigerians are at “grave risk” from large-scale attacks by militant group Boko Haram, Amnesty International says.

Amnesty’s Africa Director Netsanet Belay said in a statement that the latest attacks by Boko Haram “are significant and grim news. We believe hundreds of thousands of civilians are now at grave risk.”

The city of Maiduguri, and its population of over 600,000, may be the next target after locals and activists say Boko Haram attacked a nearby military base and the nearby town of Monguno on Sunday.

Secretary of State John Kerry is in Nigeria, meeting with president Goodluck Jonathan and his leading opponent in next month’s presidential election.

Earlier this month, Amnesty International released satellite images showing what appeared to be thousands of homes destroyed in a Boko Haram attack on the town of Baga.

Posted in Sports News

NBA via Milwaukee Bucks(MILWAUKEE) — The Detroit Pistons’ biggest fears have come true as point guard Brandon Jennings will miss the next 6-9 months with an Achilles injury.

“6/9months.” Jennings posted on Twitter on Sunday afternoon, confirming the injury.

Jennings fell to the floor during the team’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks Friday night after he planted his left leg while he was guarding on inbounds pass. He had to be carried off the court by teammates.

“We gotta just keep pushin’ WE (Pistons) worked to hard to get down about anything right now. We gotta stay focus on the main Goal. Playoffs!” Jennings tweeted after the game.

Since waiving forward Josh Smith, Jennings has played some of the best basketball of his career for the white-hot Pistons.

This past Wednesday, he dished out a career-high 21 assists and was coming into his own in his second season with the team.

In 41 games this season, Jennings averaged 15.4 points and 6.6 assists per game.

GABRIEL BOUYS/AFP/Getty Images(VATICAN CITY) — Pope Francis broke with tradition on Sunday, releasing balloons of peace in place of the typical doves during his Sunday mass.

Last January, shortly after the pontiff released the two peace doves, they were attacked by other birds. During the last Sunday mass of January, the pope traditionally released the doves to symbolize the need to pray and work for world peace, London’s The Telegraph newspaper says.

In the place of the doves, Pope Francis had children release the multi-colored balloons.
