NFL: Patricia's past not subject to personal conduct policy

DETROIT (AP) — The NFL has determined sexual assault allegations against Detroit Lions coach Matt Patricia from 1996 are not subject to its personal conduct policy.

"The allegations occurred well before his affiliation with the NFL," the league said Monday after completing its review of the Lions' interviewing process.

Patricia has said he was falsely accused of allegations that resurfaced in a Detroit News report . The accuser did not testify and the case was dismissed. He and a friend were indicted 22 years ago by a Texas grand jury on one count each of aggravated sexual assault. They were accused of assaulting a woman on South Padre Island.

Tony Romo shoots 82, finishes last in PGA Tour debut

PUNTA CANA, Dominican Republic (AP) — Tony Romo figured his weakness would be exposed in his PGA Tour debut. They were — and then some.

The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback finished last Friday in the 132-man field in the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship, bogeying the first six holes in a 10-under 82.

"I kind of have an idea of where I really need to put my time in as far as to get better and scoring," Romo said. "I'm hitting the ball fine, you just have to score."
