ALLENTOWN, Pa. -- Former NFL player and general manager Matt Millen says he is being treated for a rare disease that has robbed his heart of most of its normal function. The 60-year-old Millen told the Morning Call in Allentown, Pennsylvania, he has been diagnosed with amyloidosis, a life-threatening illness that may force Millen to seek a heart transplant. Millen has been receiving chemotherapy once a week to treat a condition that his left his heart functioning at just 30 percent. Millen played 12 seasons as a linebacker in the NFL for the Raiders, 49ers and Redskins -- and won four Super Bowl rings. He later served as Detroit's general manager and has also spent three decades as a broadcaster. Millen told the Morning Call that he plans to return to the booth in the fall.

EAGAN, Minn. — The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed cornerback Terence Newman, bringing the NFL’s oldest active defensive player back for a 16th season that will begin five days after he turns 40.


PHOENIX — The Los Angeles Dodgers’ difficult April got a lot worse with news that two-time All-Star shortstop and 2016 NL Rookie of the Year Corey Seager will undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said the operation will be performed Friday in Los Angeles to repair a right ulnar collateral ligament sprain. The 24-year-old infielder had been bothered by a sore elbow since the middle of last season but had tried to deal with the problem with rest and rehabilitation rather than surgery. Seager spoke to reporters in the dugout before the Dodgers played NL West rival Arizona on Monday night. He said he felt pain and numbness after a couple of throws in the recently completed series at San Francisco. There was no doubt surgery was needed, Seager said, calling it “cut and dried.”

SAN FRANCISCO — Hoping for clearance to begin a throwing program, San Francisco Giants ace Madison Bumgarner is headed to Arizona to meet with the same doctor who performed surgery on his left pinkie. Bumgarner was scheduled to leave the Bay Area for a checkup with Dr. Donald Sheridan, who inserted three pins into Bumgarner’s pitching hand one day after the 2014 World Series MVP was hit by a line drive late in spring training. If Bumgarner is cleared to start throwing, the four-time All-Star is still likely a month away from rejoining the big league club. The Giants also said second baseman Joe Panik underwent surgery on the ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb and will miss at least six weeks. Panik had flown to Los Angeles to get a second opinion before opting for surgery.


PLANO, Texas — Tony Romo didn’t get out of the opening stage in another failed attempt to play in the U.S. Open. Romo three-putted his opening hole at Gleneagles Country Club, made only two birdies and shot a 5-over 77 in the 18-hole local qualifier. The top eight finishers from Gleneagles advance to 36-hole sectional qualifying on June 4. Romo, the retired Dallas Cowboys quarterback and NFL analyst for CBS Sports, failed to get through local qualifying for the second straight year. He was tied for 24th among the first half of the field, meaning he would miss advancing by at least five shots. Romo played his first PGA Tour event in March in the Dominican Republic and had rounds of 77-82, missing the cut.
