Coppolella, 39, did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press. He joined former Cincinnati manager Pete Rose (1989 agreement following investigation of his gambling), New York Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia (2016, third positive drug test) and former St. Louis employee Chris Correa (2017, hacking into Houston computer systems) on the permanently ineligible list.
It’s final in Carolina.
Derek Anderson has replaced Newton at quarterback for what could be the game’s final drive.
Touchdown, Miami. The Dolphins score a late touchdown off a 9-yard pass from Cutler to Jarvis Landry, but they still trail 45-21 with 4:05 left.
Touchdown, Carolina. The Panthers are running away with it and now lead 45-14. Newton finds Devin Funchess again, this time for a 32-yard touchdown. Newton has four touchdown passes in the game.
In total, Atlanta takes a $16.48 million loss in bonuses given to prospects who will no longer be with the organization.
Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville — Jackson may not be in the Heisman discussion this year, but he probably should be. Jackson was 15 of 26 through the air for 195 yards and three touchdowns and ran for 147 yards and a score in Louisville’s 38-21 win over Virginia.
Kerryon Johnson, RB, Auburn — Not only did the 6-foot, 212-pound junior run for 167 yards on 32 carries, he caught two passes for 66 yards and a touchdown in Auburn’s 40-17 rout of No. 1 Georgia. Johnson now has over 1,000 rushing yards on the season and did a lot Saturday to boost his draft stock.
Newton hits Curtis Samuel in the hands with a pass in the end zone but the receiver drops it. Following the play, Samuel is helped off the field and into the locker room with an injury. Carolina now faces a second-and-10 from the Miami 29.
