Darnerien McCants, a former wide receiver for the Washington Redskins, can pursue workers' compensation benefits in Maryland for injuries he sustained during games and practices in other states, Maryland's highest court ruled Thursday. The unanimous decision comes on the heels of a related ruling Wednesday in a case involving another former Redskins player. The Court of Appeals allowed Tom Tupa, who had been a punter for the Virginia-based team, to obtain workers' compensation benefits for a career-ending injury suffered in 2005 during warm-ups before a home game at FedEx Field in Landover.

Darnerien McCants' return to the NFL was a joy-filled experience. Painful, too. Before the Ravens signed the wide receiver two weeks ago, McCants had gone almost two years without practicing with or playing for a NFL team. So McCants' first practice July 25 was somewhat bittersweet. "It feels great to be out [of] the league for two years and then to jump back in it," the Arundel alumnus said. "But it hurt." McCants' presence on the roster was necessitated by an injury to Demetrius Williams.

ST. LOUIS -- Over the past three weeks, North Carolina's Rashad McCants has been both dominant and invisible. He thrilled his coach with a potentially game-saving defensive play against Wisconsin and then enraged him with his inability to dive on the floor for a loose ball Saturday night against Michigan State. And he has done it all the while mixing smiles with scowls, periods of seeming indifference with stretches of intense focus. McCants, the Tar Heels' junior swing man, may be the most talented player in the Edward Jones Dome tonight when North Carolina takes on Illinois in the national championship game.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - James McCants often told college coaches that his son Rashad was going to be the next Michael Jordan. Although the mercurial sophomore guard certainly has shown flashes of brilliance during his first two seasons at North Carolina, yesterday might have been the first time he resembled the school's biggest star. Not only did McCants make the game-winning three-point shot with 6.2 seconds remaining to beat top-ranked Connecticut, 86-83, before 21,750 roaring fans at the Smith Center, but he also had scored his team's previous seven points (27 overall)

North Carolina and Wake Forest, the two top teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference, will both likely be without star players in their ACC tournament openers on Friday at MCI Center. Wake Forest, the tournament's second seed, suspended sophomore guard Chris Paul for one game - Friday's quarterfinal against either Florida State or North Carolina State - for punching N.C. State's Julius Hodge in the groin on Sunday. Meanwhile, North Carolina coach Roy Williams, whose team clinched the top seed and its first regular-season ACC championship since 1993 by beating Duke on Sunday, said yesterday that there was no news regarding the condition of Rashad McCants.

WASHINGTON - It's as if North Carolina coach Roy Williams saw the question coming, or maybe he simply wanted to keep reporters from getting any ideas. Williams, whose team was beaten, 78-75, by fifth-seeded Georgia Tech in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament semifinals yesterday at MCI Center after an uneven performance against Clemson a day earlier, acknowledged that the second-ranked and top-seeded Tar Heels did not play well this weekend. But he said it had nothing to do with the return of star swingman Rashad McCants, who came off the bench in both tournament games after sitting out four because of an intestinal disorder.

WASHINGTON - Though his role might change as he continues to recover from an intestinal virus that sidelined him for nearly three weeks, North Carolina's Rashad McCants could be the most dangerous reserve in the country judging by the way he played yesterday. After initially planning to use McCants for a couple of short stints, Tar Heels coach Roy Williams needed the junior swingman more than he figured in his team's quarterfinal game against Clemson in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament at MCI Center.

More details about the death of a 14-year-old Crofton boy emerged during a preliminary hearing Wednesday for one of two teenagers charged with manslaughter, as a detective said the homicide was rooted in gang rivalry, with Christopher David Jones most likely suffering a fatal blow from his attackers that damaged an artery that brings blood to the brain. But the attorney for Javel M. George, 16, also of Crofton, maintained the charges are either "a case of mistaken identity" or the result of playful fighting between friends on the afternoon of May 30. Annapolis District Judge Danielle M. Mosley gave prosecutors a green light to pursue the manslaughter case against George.

Eighth-ranked North Carolina looked as bad as it possibly could last night in a first half that coach Sylvia Hatchell could hardly stand to watch. Making matters worse, it was coming against the Tar Heels' fiercest rival. "It was like a nightmare," Hatchell said. Fortunately, Rashanda McCants helped the Tar Heels finally start looking like themselves again. The senior scored 19 of her 22 points in the second half to help North Carolina (21-3, 6-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat No. 4 Duke (19-3, 7-2)

ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins released 13 players yesterday, including wide receiver and Gambrills native Darnerien McCants. McCants, an Arundel High School alumnus who was selected by the Redskins in the fifth round (No. 154 overall) of the 2001 draft, played in 29 games in three seasons with the team. Last year, however, McCants was deactivated for 10 games and registered five receptions for 71 yards partly because he did not play on special teams. This preseason, McCants caught three passes for 29 yards.
