On the NFL's first preseason cutdown day, a trade and several key players going on injured reserve overshadowed other moves.

In an unusual transaction for its timing, New England sent 6-time Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins to Tampa Bay on Tuesday for tight end Tim Wright and a draft choice.

The Patriots apparently are satisfied with a young group of blockers and the Buccaneers were desperate to improve their offensive line.

CHICAGO (AP) — Zach Walters hit a two-run home run in the 10th inning, lifting the Cleveland Indians to an 8-6 victory over the sliding Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.

Pinch-hitter Lonnie Chisenhall doubled to lead off the 10th against Jake Petricka (0-4) and after failing to sacrifice Chisenhall to third, Walters hit a 3-2 pitch well into the right-field bleachers to give the Indians the lead.

Bryan Shaw (5-3) pitched 2 1/3 scoreless innings in relief for the win, keeping Cleveland 5 1/2 games behind Kansas City in the AL Central.

Buckeyes think they have more, better linebackers

COLUMBUS — Joshua Perry says he's ready for his closeup.

The Ohio State linebacker played well while learning the job a year ago. Now he's being counted on heavily to replace first-round draft pick Ryan Shazier and shepherd several new players through their first season with the fifth-ranked Buckeyes.

Perry is being counted on to fill in for last year's leading tackler, Ryan Shazier, who was taken with the No. 15 pick in the first round of the NFL draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Coach Urban Meyer has already challenged Perry. Meyer believes the linebacking crew is improved but just how much depends on the strides made by the junior from suburban Columbus.

CINCINNATI — Even if the Bengals reach the playoffs for an unprecedented fourth straight season, it'll be considered mostly irrelevant unless they win at least one more.

Harsh but accurate.

The defending AFC North champions are in what amounts to uncharted territory for their franchise. They've put together the best streak of regular-season success since their debut in 1968, reaching the playoffs three years in a row.
