Serena has surgery on her big toes

BANGKOK (AP) Serena Williams has had surgery on her big toes and withdrew from an exhibition match against top-ranked Victoria Azarenka in Thailand this month.

A medical certificate from Florida podiatrist Jeffrey Rockefeller says Williams ``was treated for a chronic foot disorder which involved minor procedures on both of her great toes.''

He said she needs to minimize activity to fully recover.

Williams, the WTA player of the year after winning Wimbledon, the U.S. Open and London Olympics, was replaced by Li Na for the exhibition on Dec. 29 in Hua Hin.

Gruden: Case Keenum will start for Redskins Week 1

Case Keenum will start for the Redskins in the team's Week 1 game against Philadelphia, Jay Gruden told reporters on Sunday.

Despite the excitement surrounding rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins, the news isn’t surprising. With Colt McCoy sidelined with an injury for an unknown period of time, Keenum was the presumed regular-season starter before the Redskins' preseason win over Atlanta on Thursday. 


Washington acquired Keenum in March. The veteran quarterback started 16 games for the Denver Broncos last season, played for the Vikings in 2017 and the Rams in 2016. 

This is a breaking news story and will be updated.
