Colts' Reggie Wayne breaks record for multiple-catch games

The Indianapolis Colts' Reggie Wayne has broken the NFL record for most consecutive games with multiple receptions. Cris Carter held the previous mark of 58. Wayne now has had at least two catches in 59 straight games. Wayne tied the mark last week at New England and broke it yesterday in front of his home crowd late in the first half against Buffalo. The Pro Bowl receiver also passed former Redskins receiver Art Monk for 12th on the NFL's all-time receptions list. Monk finished his career with 940 catches; Wayne now has 943. Wayne also played a key role in a late first-half drive that ended with a 19-yard field goal by Adam Vinatieri as time expired. (AP )

Roma fans in alleged anti-Semitic attack before Spurs game kept in jail

A judge has ordered that two AS Roma fans arrested after an attack on Tottenham supporters at a Rome pub must remain in jail pending a decision on whether to charge them. Police had said Friday that the two were accused of attempted homicide, causing injury and causing a fight before the English club's Europa League match against Lazio. But attorney Lorenzo Contucci, who is representing one of the men, said the stiffest charge the men faced at a preliminary hearing yesterday was aggravated injury. He said an anticipated charge of attempted homicide, with an aggravating element for the attack's alleged racial character, had "disappeared." During the brawl early Thursday, witnesses quoted in Italian news reports said the attackers shouted "Jew" at the Tottenham fans. Tottenham has a large Jewish fan base from north London. (AP)

Spartak Moscow fires coach Unai Emery

Spartak Moscow has fired coach Unai Emery following a 5-1 defeat in the Russian league to Dinamo Moscow yesterday. The decision was announced by Spartak general manager Valeri Karpoin at the post-match press conference. It was Spartak's sixth loss of the season and a second consecutive heavy defeat. Spartak was eliminated from the Champions League after a 3-0 loss to Barcelona at home on Tuesday. Spartak is 10 points behind league leader CSKA Moscow after 17 games this season. Spartak had hired Emery, who previously coached Valencia, to a two-year contract in June. Spartak owner Leonid Fedun said he "wouldn't like to give immediate comments." (AP )
