Rep. Frank Pratt Found Beaten

Rep. Frank Pratt Found Beaten - An Arizona lawmaker was attacked, beaten unconscious and tied up on Christmas Day.

State representative Frank Pratt was airlifted to a Phoenix hospital after he was ambushed at his business, Pratt Pools, in Casa Grande, Arizona.

Sheriff's spokesman Tim Gaffney says Pratt is in stable condition with multiple bruises and contusions and at least one fracture.

Gaffney says the attack happened after the 68-year-old stopped by Pratt Pools and was confronted by someone already inside.

Pratt was tied up after the beating and found Saturday evening by his wife, who went looking for him when he didn't come home and failed to answer his phone.

Gaffney says the suspect fled in Pratt's SUV, a gold 2007 GMC Yukon.

There was no word if police had identified a suspect, if the attack was random or if anything else was stolen.

Pratt is going into his second term as Republican representative for House District 23.

Pratt's wife said he will likely miss the governor's inauguration on January 3, but he plans to attend the Legislature's start on January 11.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
