Baltimore Sun - - SPORTS -

Bradley Beal, who signed a five-year, $128 mil­lion max­i­mum con­tract this summer, missed the Wash­ing­ton Wizards’ prac­tice on Thurs­day in Rich­mond, Va., af­ter suf­fer­ing a mild con­cus­sion, coach Scott Brooks said. Beal was in­jured Wed­nes­day morn­ing dur­ing the team’s first of two prac­tices, which were closed to the me­dia. Mid­way through the ses­sion, Beal caught an in­ad­ver­tent el­bow to his head from cen­ter Ian Mahinmi, ac­cord­ing to Brooks, and was re­moved from par­tic­i­pa­tion. He re­mained at the team ho­tel Thurs­day af­ter­noon while the rest of the team re­turned to the court. LAU­REL PARK: There will be a 20-cent Rain­bow 6 Car­ry­over of $8,832.41 greet­ing bet­tors when live rac­ing re­sumes with to­day’s 10-race pro­gram, be­gin­ning with a 1:10 p.m. first post. Through the first nine days of the fall meet, no sin­gle bet­tor has solved the Rain­bow 6, which re­quires play­ers to select the win­ners of the day’s fi­nal six races. The Rain­bow 6 car­ry­over jackpot is only paid out when there is a sin­gle unique ticket sold with all six win­ners.
