MIAMI (AP) Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross says he's confident the NFL will play in 2020, with or without spectators.

"I think there definitely will be a football season this year," Ross said Tuesday during an interview on CNBC. "The real question is will there be fans in the stadiums?"

The NFL has said it expects to play a full schedule beginning Sept. 10, but is preparing contingency plans in case the coronavirus pandemic makes venue changes or games without fans necessary.

QB Wilson, 2 others to host remote ESPYs

LOS ANGELES (AP) It’s a way different kind of year, and so The ESPYs will be, too. For the first time, the show will feature three hosts in remote settings and a changed focus.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, soccer star Megan Rapinoe and three-time WNBA champion Sue Bird will preside over the two-hour broadcast airing June 21 on ESPN. All three live in the Seattle area. Rapinoe and Bird are partners who share a household, which conveniently eases some logistics. Wilson’s singer-wife, Ciara, is likely to make an appearance, too.
