Chiefs put WR Copper on IR, elevate WR Hemingway

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs have put wide receiver Terrance Copper on injured reserve and elevated wide receiver Junior Hemingway from the practice squad for their game Sunday at Denver.

Copper hurt his knee last Sunday in a loss to the Indianapolis Colts. He has primarily played on special teams this season, though he does have eight catches for 79 yards.

Hemingway was the second of the Chiefs' two seventh-round draft picks in April. The former Michigan standout has been on the practice squad all season.

The Chiefs are 2-13 heading into their season finale against the Broncos.

Stanley Cup champion and 2018 Washington Capitals playoff hero Devante Smith-Pelly has gotten a dog.

Smith-Pelly named the husky-mix puppy Stanley, of course. Because what’s more valuable in life than championships and puppies?

Best places within driving distance to get out of Washington, D.C. on July 4th

America’s birthday is just around the corner. The Fourth of July is arguably the most anticipated event of the summer and with most having the day off to celebrate, you’ll need a place to do so.

The most obvious choice would be to spend July 4th on the National Mall, but with the anticipation of record-breaking heat, tourists and general overcrowding, Washington, D.C. may not be the most ideal location to spend the holiday.

Here are the best places to get out of Washington, D.C. on July 4th within driving distance:

The Winery at Bull Run: Manassas, Virginia

If you’re looking to spend your Fourth of July at a winery, this is the place for you. The Winery at Bull Run is adjacent to Manassas National Battlefield Park, the site of the Battle of Bull Run, one of the major battles of the Civil War. It’s the perfect place to not only enjoy your July 4th, yet be surrounded by some American history as well.

Leesburg, Virginia

Another historic location to spend your Fourth of July is in Leesburg, Virginia. Downtown Leesburg has an old, historic charm to it with shops, restaurants, microbreweries and wine kitchens. Beginning at 10 a.m, there will be an Independence Day parade. Venture outside of the historic downtown and find some of Virginia’s finest breweries and wineries. At night, head to Ida Lee Recreation Center for a concert and some of the best fireworks in Virginia.

Herndon, Virginia

There’s nothing like the Fourth of July, and another historic Virginia town has one of the best events for the holiday. Herndon, Virginia located in Fairfax County, is hosting their annual July 4th event featuring games, live music and other family-friendly activities before their fireworks show in the evening.

Lake Anna, Virginia

Spend your Fourth of July at the Lake this year at one of the most popular destinations in Virginia, Lake Anna. Located only 72 miles south of Washington D.C., Lake Anna has a bunch of activities for everyone including watersports and hiking. Although fireworks aren’t scheduled on the 4th, stay through the weekend to watch the free fireworks show on Saturday, July 6.

Charlottesville, Virginia

Another patriotic destination to spend the Fourth of July is in Charlottesville, Virginia. Charlottesville has a plethora of things to do for the 4th including, parades, fireworks and other celebrations across the city.
