    Pope Francis | giulio napolitano / Shutterstock.com. What if Pope Francis visited, and not quite everybody came? Yes, we’ve warned that crowds for the pope’s late-September visit could actually be bigger than the official estimates of 1- to 2 million visitors. But now there’s a reason to believe the crowds will be of much more manageable size: The agency didn’t get nearly as many entrants into its lottery for regional rail passes for the pope’s visit as expected. Of course, that could also mean that lots of visitors decided not to even bother — and that…

    By Dr. Brian McDonough PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It’s estimated that close to 22,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer this year. The majority won’t be discovered until the later stages when treatment is less effective and the cancer can spread. However, there are some steps that can be taken to help patients whose cancer is diagnosed in time. An example is a technique that they used at Ohio State University. After undergoing surgery to remove tumors, women received a dual dose of chemo — one in the arm, followed by one in the abdomen. The three-year survival rate…

  • Eagles, Bradford reportedly talking short-term deal (NBC on Yahoo Sports)

    4 Aug 2015 | 7:34 am
    The Eagles and quarterback  Sam Bradford  are discussing a contract extension that would keep him in Philadelphia at least through 2016. Ed Werder of ESPN reports that the two sides are talking about a short-term deal that would keep him  in Philadelphia beyond just this season . Bradford’s current contract, the $78 million rookie deal that he signed as the first overall pick of the Rams in the 2010 draft, expires after this season. That means the Eagles would be faced with the choice in March of either signing Bradford to an extension, letting him walk, or putting the franchise tag on…

Given Matthews' injury history and his importance to the Packers' defense, any injury that would keep him off the field once the regular season begins Sept. 13 would be a major blow to a unit that turned around when the coaches began using him at inside linebacker in addition to his work on the edge.

    Late last week, Jakub Voracek signed a hefty contract extension with the Philadelphia Flyers that made him a player with the 10th-highest cap hit in the league (tied with Eric Staal and Ryan Getzlaf). The initial reaction most people had to that deal probably ranged somewhere between, “Well, Jake Voracek isn't a top-10 player in the league, so that's a dumb contract,” and, “He doesn't deserve as much money as Ryan Getzlaf,” and “He's only getting paid because of Claude Giroux.” [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today! ] These are three related but separate…

    Jakub Voracek has been locked up by the Philadelphia Flyers for eight years at $66 million. For those doing math at home that’s about $8.25 million per-year which kicks in for the 2016-17 season. That’s a hefty raise for the forward, whose prior contract carried a $4.25 million salary cap hit. It runs out after this season. Voracek, 25, was set to hit the unrestricted free agent market next summer, which seems to be dwindling at an alarming rate with Voracek joining Ryan Kesler as marquee names who have signed long-term contracts.
