Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - SUNDAY PUNCH - — Eric Kolenich

1. Der­rius Guice

The splashy new run­ning back was in­jured on his sixth carry of the first pre­sea­son game of his NFL ca­reer. Now he’s done for the 2018 sea­son. The Red­skins lost, a star player got hurt, and it feels like au­tumn al­ready.

2. WNBA for­feit

It took the Las Ve­gas Aces of the WNBA 26 hours to reach Wash­ing­ton, D.C., af­ter mul­ti­ple flight de­lays and can­cel­la­tions. The Aces ar­rived in Wash­ing­ton four hours be­fore tipoff and opted not to play. The game was ruled a for­feit. Only 26 hours? Wash­ing­ton com­muters on I-95 sit in that much traf­fic in about four days.

3. Brian France

The chair­man and CEO of NASCAR was ar­rested this week on DWI and crim­i­nal pos­ses­sion of oxy­codone charges.

4. Sell­ing shoes

Thir­teen UNC foot­ball play­ers were sus­pended for sell­ing team-is­sued shoes. The Air Jor­dan 3’s re­port­edly went for $2,500 cash. What per­son in his right mind would keep a pair of shoes he could sell for $2,500? Sell­ing them was the only ra­tio­nal de­ci­sion.
