Manziel gets another start…Kuechly doubtful…Day leads…More surgery for Woods…Harvick has pole.

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel (man-ZEHL’) will start Sunday’s home opener against Tennessee because Josh McCown remains out with a concussion. McCown was injured on Cleveland’s opening drive last week against the New York Jets and has not been cleared by an independent neurologist to practice. Manziel came off the bench last Sunday and threw his first career touchdown pass, but also committed three turnovers in a 31-10 loss.

UNDATED (AP) — Carolina middle linebacker Luke Kuechly (KEEK’-lee) has not been cleared to return after suffering a concussion in the season opener. That makes Kuechly doubtful for Sunday’s game against Houston. And Bills cornerback Corey Graham has been cleared to return for Sunday’s game against New England.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Jason Day is holding a five-shot lead heading into the third round of the BMW Championship. The PGA Championship winner is a tournament-record 18 under after rounds of 61 and 63. Daniel Berger and Brendan Todd hold down second at 13-under, while Masters and U.S. Open champion Jordan Spieth (SPEETH) is tied with Kevin Na at 11 under.

UNDATED (AP) — Tiger Woods has announced on his website that he has undergone a second microdiscectomy (MY’-kroh-dihs-KEHK’-toh-mee) surgery on his back. Woods reported the microsurgical procedure was performed late Wednesday in Park City, Utah, by neurosurgeon Dr. Charles Rich. He pulled out of three events he planned to play this year and isn’t expected to return to the tour until January at the earliest.

JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — Rain has washed out qualifying for the opening race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship at Chicagoland Speedway. Kevin Harvick will start his title defense from the pole Sunday after posting the best practice speed. Joey Logano will start alongside Harvick, just in front of Brad Keselowski and Martin Truex Jr.
