9A ET : Tiger Woods Ready to Tee Off, Dez Bryant Ready for Miami, Bullpen Session for Andy Pettitte


For the 26th time in his career, Tiger Woods held at least a share of the lead after 18 holes of a PGA TOUR event. He went on to win that event 13 of the other 25 times. Of course, he hasn't won any events this year. But he's never gone without a PGA TOUR win in a calendar year, and he's back on the tee today at 12:10 ET.

More of what's happening At This Hour, including Dez Bryant looking forward to facing Miami next week, and Andy Pettitte testing his groin, after the jump.


Dez Bryant looked good and felt good at Cowboys practice yesterday when he ran routes for the first time since spraining his ankle. And while he surely won't play this weekend, he's not too sure about not playing next weekend. "I'm excited. I am ready for it. I know I can (cut on the ankle)," he said. There's a possibility I might get a couple snaps in next week against Miami."

Andy Pettitte will test his sore groin in a bullpen session today in Chicago. He's expected to throw 20-25 pitches under the watchful eyes of Joe Girardi. "Every time that he's tried to really push off, he's felt a little tug," said Girardi. "If he's able to really push off (Friday), that would tell me that he's healed." And if he's healed, he could be back by mid-September. And if not? "That would be a pretty big setback," Girardi said.
