Selena Gomez bravely returned to the stage Sunday night at the American Music Awards just months after her kidney transplant, but her performance is receiving criticism from viewers who claim she lip synced.

For the first time in his seven-year NFL career, 29-year-old Pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman (ruptured Achilles’ tendon) will miss a pro football game when Atlanta travels to Seattle on Monday night. It seems increasingly likely that 29-year-old Pro Bowl strong safety Kam Chancellor (neck stinger) will miss the game as well, and possibly more than just this game—Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network reported Saturday that Chancellor is “likely” out for the season. And after missing the last two
