Late last week, reports started coming out that Daniel Bryan's rehab wasn't going as well as hoped. This afternoon, reports came out that doctors had officially told him that he won't be cleared to wrestle at Money in the Bank. Assuming these reports are true, that means we will see the Money in the Bank match turned into a match for the WWE World Heavyweight title, as Stephanie McMahon announced on RAW last week. We may also see a second match for the MITB briefcase. We should know more about that later tonight on RAW. Now that we know he won't be defending the title though, the question becomes who will become champion, and what happens to some of the long-term plans for the title and Daniel Bryan.

When the Ravens' brain trust gathered at owner Steve Bisciotti's home in Florida over the weekend, they began to formulate plans designed to get the organization back in the postseason after a one-year absence. Many of those plans are a couple of months away from coming to fruition as free agency doesn't start until March 11 and the first day of the NFL draft isn't until May 8. But some other decisions, starting with the composition of John Harbaugh's coaching staff, could become clearer this week with the AFC and NFC championship matchups now set. The San Diego Chargers' loss to the Denver Broncos frees up the Chargers' offensive coordinator, Ken Whisenhunt , to accept a head coaching job if one is offered.

The fatal shooting by a police officer of 14-year-old Simmont Donta Thomas is a tragedy.It is a tragedy for his family.It is a tragedy for Officer Edward T. Gorwell II, 24, a two-year member of the Baltimore police force, who fired the shot into the teen-ager's back as the youth fled from a stolen car early last Saturday in Gwynns Falls Park.And it is tragic for a city that would just like to close its eyes and then open them to find the ills of homicide and drugs and wasted youth gone. Lamentably, no one has come up with any more tangible antidote that can work fast enough.

Unlike most movies that insist on being cute, cloying or campy when they try out the fantasy-with-meaning genre, NBC's "Guess Who's Coming for Christmas?" does it right.The only way to make a movie like this work, as films from "It's a Wonderful Life" to "E.T." to "Field of Dreams" have proven, is to play it straight. Led by the superb work of Richard Mulligan in the lead, this cast and crew keep the proper tone from beginning to end.Unfortunately, in between beginning and end are some rather thin moments because this undeniably charming movie doesn't have quite enough story to sustain its two-hour length.

Atlanta Journal-Constitution staff writer Don O'Briant, 62, was confronted Friday by a gunman believed to be Brian Nichols who stole his car, tried to abduct him and pistol-whipped him. Here is O'Briant's account of his encounter: It's funny how your mind goes through all these scenarios. How am I going to get out of this? Do I run now? Do I talk to him? Is he gonna shoot me and leave me lying here? When it was going on, I thought I was just involved in a routine carjacking. I had no idea he'd just killed people.

The eternally vexing issue of race in America has been examined and dissected in so many ways by now that it's hard to say something new. So it's all the more surprising that a playwright should have managed to generate a fresh take on this subject out of dated material - the 1967 film “Guess Who's Coming to Dinner.” Todd Kreidler re-examined the screenplay by William Rose and transformed it into a sturdy theatrical vehicle, as sobering as...

Football coaches are fond of saying that it takes all three phases of a team - offense, defense and special teams - to be successful. The offense and defense did their part in No. 7 seed Towson's convincing 48-28 victory over visiting Fordham on Saturday in a NCAA Division I Football Championship second-round game, but the same could not be said of the special teams. That unit committed back-to-back-to-back gaffes in the second quarter, and two were costly: The Rams (12-2) turned them into touchdowns to roar back from a 21-7 deficit.

From: Carneros, Calif. Price: $25 Serve with: Roast turkey, duck, grilled tuna There's a real depth of flavor behind the soft, lush texture of this well-made Carneros red wine. It shows elements of black cherry and cassis, along with an appealing earthiness. It would be an excellent accompaniment to the Thanksgiving turkey, and its has the guts and concentration to stand up to the array of traditional dishes for that feast. --- Michael Dresser

The Pittsburgh Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger was listed as limited in Wednesday's practice, which was interpreted as a boost in the arm for the Steelers who have dropped two straight games without their franchise quarterback. But a report in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review described Roethlisberger's workout as very brief, his light throwing ending even before some of his teammates reached the practice field. Does this mean that Pittsburgh will err on the side of caution and shelve Roethlisberger for at least another week to give his dislocated ribs and sprained right throwing shoulder more time to heal?

Guess Who plays out the shock of a beautiful black daughter (Zoe Saldana) introducing her white fiance (Ashton Kutcher) to her formidable parents (Bernie Mac and Judith Scott) with grace and humanity, whether addressing the racial content or transcending it. Oh, it's full of stunned looks and dueling stereotypes, and the most daring, hilarious scene comes when Mac demands that Kutcher repeat some black jokes that the boy has heard around his family's dinner table. But the movie's sweetness, wit and charm go beyond its can't-we-all-just-get-along premise.

It's okay to don your Terrell Suggs jersey for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans, but don't be disappointed when all of his face time on TV is spent on the sidelines. He's not going to play and he never was, but there probably is some method to the seeming madness of an indication that he might. The Ravens can say all they want that they seriously doubt Suggs will play, but I'm guessing that the coy indication that he could get into the game isn't just the usual overly optimistic projection of an injured player who is aching to get back in action.
