Maryland's Tate makes Nagurski Watch List

Terps linebacker Kenny Tate (DeMatha) was placed on the watch list for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy on Friday. The honor is awarded annually to the nation's best defensive player by the Football Writers Association of America and the Charlotte Touchdown Club. It was the second honor of the week for the rising senior, who on Tuesday made the watch list for the Chuck Bednarik Award, which also honors the top defender in the nation. A 2010 first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection, Tate moved from safety to linebacker in the spring.

Haynesworth trial postponed for month

A D.C. Superior Court judge agreed to a one-month delay in the misdemeanor sexual abuse trial of Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth to help defense witnesses to schedule their appearances. In a letter to the court Thursday, Haynesworth's attorney, A. Scott Bolden, requested the delay until Aug. 2 to "accommodate the schedules of certain witnesses" in the case. The trial was to begin Monday. A senior judge overseeing the trial agreed to the delay. Monday's court date will instead become a status hearing in preparation for the trial. Because it is a misdemeanor case, a judge — not a jury — will hear the evidence. Haynesworth was indicted by a D.C. grand jury in April in connection with an alleged Feb. 12 assault on a cocktail waitress at the W Hotel's P.O.V. Roof Terrace and Lounge.
