Chicago Sun-Times - - SPORTS -

Rory McIl­roy shot a 4-un­der­par 68 on Satur­day to take a three­stroke lead into the fi­nal round of the Cadil­lac Cham­pi­onship, a World Golf Cham­pi­onships event in Do­ral, Florida.

McIl­roy played bo­gey-free in the third round and hasn’t dropped a shot in his last 34 holes on the Blue Mon­ster course. He com­pleted 54 holes at 12-un­der 204.

Adam Scott and Dustin John­son are tied for se­cond, three shots off the pace, and Phil Mick­el­son, Bubba Wat­son and Danny Wil­lett are tied for fourth, five shots back.

Dol­phins, DE Wil­liams talk­ing

Mul­ti­ple out­lets re­ported the Mi­ami Dol­phins met with freeagent de­fen­sive end Mario Wil­liams, who was re­leased Tues­day by the Buf­falo Bills.

Wil­liams, 31, has 96 ca­reer sacks, but he had only five last sea­son un­der new coach Rex Ryan. The Dol­phins are in­ter­ested, though, be­cause they might lose de­fen­sive end Olivier Ver­non in free agency and be­cause de­fen­sive end Cameron Wake is com­ing off a torn Achilles ten­don.

Mul­ti­ple out­lets re­ported the Kansas City Chiefs voided the last four years of linebacker Tamba Hali’s con­tract, mak­ing him a free agent. Hali, 33, had taken a pay cut and re­worked his deal to re­main with the team last sea­son.

De­spite deal­ing with a both­er­some knee for much of last sea­son, Hali had 6.5 sacks and was voted to his fifth con­sec­u­tive Pro Bowl.

The Jack­sonville Jaguars con­firmed prac­tice-squad de­fen­sive back Earl Wolff was kid­napped for a short time in North Carolina last month but was freed un­harmed.

The Fayet­teville (North Carolina) Ob­server re­ported Wolff was vis­it­ing friends when a group of men with guns forced him into his Range Rover. Po­lice said he was re­leased a short time later.

Mul­ti­ple out­lets re­ported the Min­nesota Vik­ings agreed to terms with safety An­drew Sen­dejo on a four-year con­tract that will keep him from en­ter­ing free agency Wed­nes­day. The deal re­port­edly is worth $16 mil­lion.

Wolves fall to Ad­mi­rals in OT

Pon­tus Aberg scored in over­time to give the Mil­wau­kee Ad­mi­rals a 1-0 vic­tory against the Wolves (25-25-5-2) in Amer­i­can Hockey League ac­tion at the Bradley Cen­ter. Pheonix Co­p­ley made 38 saves for the Wolves.

Mul­ti­ple out­lets re­ported the NHL will an­nounce Sun­day that the Win­nipeg Jets will host the Ed­mon­ton Oil­ers in an out­door game next sea­son at In­vestors Group Field, the home of the Win­nipeg Blue Bombers of the Cana­dian Foot­ball League.

David Per­ron scored a goa­head power-play goal in the se­cond pe­riod, and the vis­it­ing Ana­heim Ducks ex­tended their win­ning streak to 11 games with a 3-2 vic­tory against the Los An­ge­les Kings.

Braves re­liever tomiss sea­son

The At­lanta Braves said left­handed re­liever An­drew McKi­ra­han likely will need Tommy John surgery on his pitch­ing el­bow for a se­cond time and is ex­pected to miss the sea­son.
