CINCINNATI — Andrew Luck watched one of his backups struggle behind an offensive line that remains the Colts' biggest concern heading into the season.

Coach Chuck Pagano has little more than a week to piece something together.

Rookie Jeremy Hill ran for 70 yards and was Cincinnati's top receiver as well on Thursday night, leading the Bengals to a 35-7 victory over Indianapolis in a game devoid of starters.

Luck and Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton sat it out, as did most of the starters for both teams.

CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Reds came up with a game plan to steal a game from Jake Arrieta and they ran with it.

Billy Hamilton stole his 51st base and the Reds swiped six in all, beating the Chicago Cubs 7-2 Thursday.

Zack Cozart and Todd Frazier each stole twice and Kristopher Negron added one more. The last time the Reds stole at least six was 2006 against Washington.

The Reds had six steals in the first four innings, using six hits and four walks to build a 6-0 lead against Arrieta (7-5).

Cincinnati stole three in a 3-run second inning and two in a 3-run fourth. All six steals came at second base, with John Baker catching Arrieta.

“We knew it would be hard to score on Arrieta,” Reds manager Bryan Price said. “We wanted to create some opportunities by being aggressive. We did a good job, all the way through, not just the first time through the lineup.”

LOS ANGELES — Southern California cornerback Josh Shaw has admitted to lying to school officials about how he sprained his ankles last weekend, retracting his story about jumping off a balcony to save his drowning nephew.

Shaw has been suspended indefinitely from all of the Trojans' team activities after acknowledging his heroic tale was "a complete fabrication," the school announced in a statement Wednesday.

The school didn't explain how Shaw actually was injured but USC officials say they regret posting a story on their website Monday lauding Shaw's story about a second-story jump onto concrete to rescue his 7-year-old nephew.
