Illinois linebacker Buchanan breaks jaw in fight

Posted: Updated:

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - A University of Illinois spokesman says defensive end Michael Buchanan broke his jaw in a weekend fight.

Illinois sports information director Kent Brown said Wednesday that Buchanan's jaw is wired shut after a fight Saturday night somewhere in the Champaign area. Brown said the university was still trying to determine exactly what happened and where. The spokesman wasn't sure whether police were called to the incident or whether the team will discipline Buchanan.

Brown said Illinois coach Tim Beckman hopes Buchanan will be able to play again by the time preseason training starts in early August.

Buchanan is a 6-6, 240-pound senior and was fourth in the Big Ten in sacks last fall. He is expected to anchor Illinois' defense this season.

    Report: health risks at some nail salons

    One of the most surprising findings in a report from the New York City public advocate is that city officials have virtually no authority over how nail salons are run. The city can't enforce standards like they do with restaurants, so it's clearly a case of beauty buyer beware. We get our nails done without thinking too much about it.
