Fracture Reviewed on PlayStation 3. Also available on Xbox 360. One player; up to 12 players online. Rated Teen for animated blood, mild language and violence. $59.99. ** Most people assume that a global-warming apocalypse would send the east and west coasts of the U.S. into the depths of the ocean. But the makers of Fracture - an ambitious but ultimately ho-hum first-person shooter for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 - have other ideas. This being a game set in the future, new technology has allowed for the Earth to rise and fall at the whim of man.

A worn and fractured rail along train tracks through Ellicott City caused the coal train derailment that killed two women in 2012, the National Transportation Safety Board said Thursday. In its final report on the accident, the NTSB said it found evidence that the section of CSX Transportation rail showed signs of "gradual deterioration of the rail-head surface" from passing trains. The finding makes official preliminary conclusions about a rail break contributing to the accident that were released in a docket of investigatory documents last month.

Kentucky Derby winnerAnimal Kingdom has a small fracture in the cannon bone in his left back leg and will be out of action for at least several weeks while doctors monitor his condition. The colt, who is conditioned by Maryland trainer Graham Motion and resides at the Fair Hill Training Center in Elkton, was involved in a collision shortly after the start of the Belmont Stakes and finished a disappointing sixth. Motion thought the horse looked stiff in the days after the race and had him checked out at the New Bolton Research Center in Kennett Square, Pa., which detected the injury during a bone scan.

A nuclear scan helped doctors diagnose Animal Kingdom with the start of a stress fracture in his hind end. The injury won't require surgery, and the Kentucky Derby winner could return to full training after 30 days of rest and 60 days of light work. But his connections also raised the possibility of retirement so that the colt could be put out to stud. "Team Valor's interest is to run the horse for another year," Team Valor International CEO Barry Irwin said in a statement.

Yearly infusions of the bone-strengthening agent zoledronic acid in elderly people who have suffered a hip fracture reduced deaths by 28 percent and new fractures by 35 percent over two years - the first time any treatment has been shown to reduce mortality in such patients. Researchers reported in May that the drug, sold under the brand name Reclast by Novartis, significantly reduced the incidence of fractures in patients with osteoporosis. But the new trial is the first to study people who have already suffered a fracture, said Dr. Dennis Black of the University of California San Francisco, who was not involved in the study.

Jeremiah Johnson sensed something was wrong with his foot, but he wasn't ready to process the signals his body was sending. After sweating with his teammates through weeks of spring practices and summer training camp, it seemed too sudden - too cruel and random - for Maryland's starting cornerback to be injured in the first game of the season on a routine special-teams play. The redshirt junior was blocking for kick returner Stefon Diggs against Florida International on Aug. 31 when his left foot buckled and one of his toes was pushed backward at an awkward angle.

Maryland men's basketball sophomore guard Seth Allen's timetable for a return to action is still uncertain, his much-anticipated season debut held off by a still-recovering fractured left foot . Will he be healthy in early January? Late January? Will he be ready when he does come back? Those are questions for which Allen might not even have the answer. What we do know is that his rehabilitation is far enough along, apparently, that he can take (and make) 3-pointers inside an empty Comcast Center.

Each time the ambulance hit a pothole, Dennis Pitta experienced a new level of agony. There were so many things on his mind. Was his season over? Was his career in jeopardy? How was his wife? Serious reflection, though, would have to wait. The pain was just too consuming. Pitta lay in the back of the ambulance in the fetal position, unable to straighten his legs. His body swayed as the ambulance weaved through traffic. Each bump on the way to Columbia's MedStar Union Memorial Hospital - Liberty Road was the worst - felt like another dagger being plunged into his side.

The Maryland men's basketball season begins a week from Friday against Connecticut, which doesn't leave much time for the Terps to adjust to a new starting point guard. What had been a clear-cut choice for months became clouded Wednesday, when it was announced that sophomore Seth Allen will be out eight to 10 weeks after breaking a bone in his left foot during practice Tuesday. Though he would not publicly discuss Allen's replacement, coach Mark Turgeon wrote in a text message to The Baltimore Sun that junior Dez Wells will shift over to the starting point guard spot with freshman Roddy Peters serving as his backup.
