FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- A high school football player from northern Indiana is in critical condition one day after he was injured in a football game.
WANE-TV reports that Columbia City High School football player Sam Dailey was listed in critical condition Saturday at Fort Wayne's Lutheran Hospital.
Columbia City football coach Randy Hudgins says Dailey sustained an injury in Friday night's game between Columbia City and Warsaw Community High School in Warsaw. Hudgins says Dailey was immediately taken to the hospital.
Hudgins says it's hard to tell where Dailey was hurt and how the injury happened, but he says everyone is optimistic about Dailey's chances for recovery.
Civil rights heroes honored: Commissioner Bud Selig, Hall of Famers and current players honored Jackie Robinson and other civil rights heroes at an awards luncheon in downtown Chicago before MLB's Civil Rights Game between the White Sox and the Texas Rangers on Saturday night.

The Beacon Awards honored retired major leaguer Bo Jackson and entertainer Aretha Franklin.
Reynolds ready: The Reds have right-hander Greg Reynolds ready to start the final game of their series against the Milwaukee Brewers on today.
Left-hander Tony Cingrani strained his lower back in his start Tuesday against Arizona, forcing him out in the fourth inning. The Reds lost 5-2. Cingrani said his back has been bothering him for some time.
He's scheduled to start Sunday against the Brewers. Cingrani said on Saturday that he's taken drugs to get rid of the inflammation and his back is feeling much better.
Manager Dusty Baker said the club is leaning toward Reynolds, who would make his second start of the season. Reynolds pitched five innings of a 5-3 loss in San Francisco on July 23. A decision was expected after Saturday night's game.
Mauer not cleared: The Minnesota Twins say All-Star catcher Joe Mauer is not going to be activated from the seven-day concussion list when the team begins a homestand next week.
Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said doctors have told Mauer to rest until at least Tuesday, the day he would be eligible to come off the concussion disabled list.
Mauer was placed on the list earlier this week after he became dizzy during his pregame routine. The Twins sent him back to Minnesota from Detroit, and the 2009 AL MVP visited a specialist at the Mayo Clinic on Friday.
It was originally thought Mauer would report to Target Field and possibly begin an exercise program on Saturday, but doctors have decided it's best for him to rest until next week.
Jeter to return: New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is about ready to rejoin the team after being sidelined earlier this month by a strained right calf.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said before Saturday night's game against Tampa Bay that barring a setback, Jeter will be back with the team Monday in Toronto.
Jeter broke his left ankle in the AL championship series in October and missed the first 91 games this year. Since then the 13-time All-Star, who is hitting .211 (4 for 19) with one home run and two RBIs, has spent time on the DL with a strained right quadriceps and the calf injury.
The Yankees captain is on a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Hedwall leads: Solheim Cup star Caroline Hedwall shot a 6-under 64 on Saturday in the Canadian Women's Open to take a one-stroke lead over European teammate Suzann Pettersen and defending champion Lydia Ko.

Pettersen shot a 65, and the 16-year-old Ko had a 67. Last year in British Columbia, the New Zealand amateur became the youngest winner in LPGA Tour history at 15 years, 4 months.
