Phil Ellsworth / ESPN Images(JACKSONVILLE, Fla.) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars aren't making any big changes just yet. Team owner Shad Khan said after Thursday's primetime loss to the Tennessee Titans that Gus Bradley will remain the team's head coach.

However, a change could be coming soon if the Jaguars don't improve their play. The team enters the weekend in last place in the AFC South, and they are headed towards another losing season despite high expectations entering 2016.

Quarterback Blake Bortles has not had the year many were anticipating, and the team has committed a number of penalties that have cost them early in games.

In 2012, Bradley was hired away from the Seattle Seahawks coaching staff and was tasked with turning Jacksonville's franchise around. Through just about three and a half seasons, Bradley's done everything but, coaching the Jaguars to a 14-41 record overall.

The loss to Tennessee marks what seems to be the lowest point in Bradley's tenure with the Jaguars. Khan spoke with the players just three days prior to the game to ask why the team wasn't winning games and if he could do anything to help.

Bradley said after the team's loss he's not worried about his job. He's just concerned with getting the Jaguars to play better football.

Joe Faraoni / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) -- Michael Phelps is opening up about his secret wedding to now-wife Nicole Johnson.

"I’ve been married for a while -- a couple months," he said during a Facebook Live video Thursday.

"I had to keep it a secret from y’all. I had to keep it hush-hush from you guys," the Olympic swimmer added, smiling. "But Nicole and I are married. We are officially married ... and now we are getting the chance to kind of kick it and hang out now."

In the video, Phelps, 31, is golfing with fellow Baltimore athlete, Ray Lewis, a former linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens. The gold medalist even showed off that he's not yet wearing a wedding ring.

When asked why he kept his marriage a secret, Phelps replied: "Just because."

The swimmer, father to 5-month-old son Boomer, also hinted that he could be expanding his family soon.

"Baby number two may be coming soon," he teased. "Who knows, though?"

According to a record of marriage obtained by ABC News, the Olympic gold medalist wed the former Miss California USA in Paradise Valley, Arizona, on June 13.

Phelps and Johnson, who is also 31, announced their engagement in February 2015.

DAJ/Thinkstock(CLEVELAND) -- The pennant from the last time the Cleveland Indians won the World Series in 1948 has been missing for more than 67 years, prompting some fans to blame the missing memorabilia for The Tribe's lack of championship wins since it was last seen.

The whereabouts of the pennant have been a topic of legend in Major League Baseball. On Sept. 23, 1949, after the Indians were knocked out of contention for that year's World Series, then-owner Bill Veeck concocted an idea to take advantage of the "lovely championship hangover" and boost revenue, Indians curator Jeremy Feador told He held an elaborate funeral for the flag.

The pennant was placed in a casket and had a horse-drawn funeral hearse from the 1800s, Feador said. It was buried behind the fence in the outfield at Cleveland Municipal Stadium, with Indians players serving as pallbearers. The grave for the pennant even had a headstone that said "1949 Champs," historical photos show.

As time went on, Indians fans began to forget about the pennant. No one has seen it since it was buried, Feador said. But he has a few theories on what could have happened to it.

The 14-by-20-foot pennant could have been dug up in the 1990s and mistaken for garbage when ground broke for FirstEnergy Stadium, built to replace Cleveland Municipal Stadium. Feader thinks it could be in a landfill somewhere or in the basement of a fan who's just waiting for the "right time" to unveil it.

Many Indians fans say the missing pennant is the reason why it's been 68 years since The Tribe won a World Series, ABC affiliate WEWS-TV in Cleveland reported.

Baseball and superstition go hand-in-hand, as Chicago Cubs fans also know well. The Cubs are currently trying to defeat the Curse of the Billy Goat, which legend says was imposed upon the team the last time they appeared in a World Series -- in 1945.

The city of Cleveland celebrated another one of its winning teams on Monday -- the Cavaliers, who won the NBA championship in June.

"It would be like Dan Gilbert right now taking the Cavs' pennant down and burying it underneath Quickenloans if they don't make it to the playoffs this year," Feador told WEWS.

The Indians last played in the World Series in 1997, though they didn't win. They have won twice before: first in 1920 and last in 1948. The only signage at FirstEnergy Stadium now that signifies their last World Series win is a small sign with the numbers "1948" printed on it.

The Indians play the Cubs in Game 3 of the 2016 World Series on Friday at 8:08 p.m. at Wrigley Field. The teams are currently tied in the series at 1-1.

Feador is asking fans to look for additional memorabilia from the Indians' 1948 World Series win that they may not even know they have.

"There's probably a lot of stuff out there that we don't know about, but I would love to hear about," he said. "So check your attics, check your basements, ask your family."

Brian Cassella/Chicago Tribune/TNS via Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- He's healthy enough to hit, but Chicago Cubs slugger Kyle Schwarber was no cleared to play in the outfield during the World Series.

Schwarber missed almost all of the regular season with a torn ACL.

The big hitter returned to the Cubs lineup as a designated hitter for the first two games of the World Series, but with the next three games played at Wrigley Field, the designated hitter won't be in play. And on Thursday, team president Theo Epstein said doctors did not clear him to play the field.

Schwarber tried to argue for clearance, Epstein said, but the team opted to look out for his long-term health.

Schwarber admitted that it was always a long shot that he would play in the field this series. "There's no being sad about it. There's no nothing. I know my role now, and I'm going to embrace it."

His Game One double made Schwarber the first position player in MLB history to get his first hit of the season in the World Series. "I'm living the dream," he said. "We're playing in the World Series. What else could you ask for? I'm just going to keep riding the wave until it ends."

Photo by Scott Clarke / ESPN Images(DENVER) -- Denver Broncos running back C.J. Anderson could be out for a while after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his knee.

A source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Anderson suffered damage to the meniscus in his right knee. The extent of the damage would be determined during the surgery.

ESPN says a full meniscus tear could cost Anderson the remainder of the Broncos' season, while a partial tear could see him return in four or five weeks.

An MRI Anderson had done on Wednesday revealed no tear of his ACL.

Anderson suffered the injury late in the first quarter of the Broncos' Monday night win over the Houston Texans. Anderson returned to the game eight plays later, however, and finished with 16 carries for 107 rushing yards.

Rookie Devontae Booker is expected to start on Sunday in Anderson's place.

iStock/Thinkstock(CLEVELAND) -- Chicago got their own back Wednesday night in Cleveland, winning Game 2 of the World Series with a solid 5-1 victory.

The Cubs' scoring action was limited to the first five innings, scoring a single run in the first, a run in the third, and three runs in the fifth -- the last courtesy of a bases-loaded walk -- off a total nine hits.  The Indians’ sole run was earned in the sixth inning on one of only four hits, an effort not helped by two errors.

The series now stands tied at 1-1, following Cleveland’s opening game 6-0 shutout.

Both teams enjoy a breather Thursday night before meeting again Friday for Game 3 at Chicago’s Wrigley Field.

iStock/Thinkstock(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) -- The Carolina Panthers' rookie class traded their football uniforms Tuesday for Halloween costumes to visit families at a local children’s hospital.

The 11 members of the Panthers’ rookie class spent nearly two hours visiting kids one-on-one and partaking in Halloween traditions like pumpkin carving with patients at the Levine Children’s Hospital at the Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Halloween visit from rookies is a 13-year tradition for the Panthers. Just before the event each year, the team lays out costumes in the visitors' locker room as they would football uniforms on game days.

The players then each pick out their own costume.

“You’ve got these world-class athletes and within 15 minutes the locker room has been transformed into this place of costumed characters,” Riley Fields, the Panthers' director of community relations, told ABC News.

This year, the team’s top draft pick, defensive tackle Vernon Butler, dressed as what the team called a “Super Toddler.” Former Duke University standout Jeremy Cash dressed as Captain America, while Oklahoma alumnus picked a Mr. Incredible costume.

Cornerback James Bradberry dressed as Spider-man, particularly bonding with one young patient who was more impressed with his costume than with Bradberry’s NFL stats.

“I’m just Spider-man today, so I get to influence them by being a superhero,” Bradberry told “He didn’t really care about who I was as a person, but he wanted me to be Spider-man, so that’s who I was.”

The players also handed out candy to children on four floors of the hospital and delivered treats like Panthers hats and signed footballs.

“The guys really understand what their role is for that day, to bring needed diversion to families in challenging circumstances,” Fields said. “We’ll bring Halloween to them.”

The outing also helps the rookies bond, according to Fields.

“They’re all trying to make adjustments to life in the NFL so when you can provide time for them to share together, it really helps,” he said.
