Walter Payton Award winner Bo Levi Mitchell and Tennessee Titans All-Pro offensive tackle Michael Roos have been recognized among the all-time best 50 male athletes in the Big Sky Conference, the league announced Thursday.

Roos’ long streak in jeopardy after appendectomy

Michael Roos (pictured right) has started every game for the Tennessee Titans since being drafted in the second round out of Eastern Washington in 2005 – a streak in peril of ending at 119 straight because even NFL players have to heal after emergency appendectomies. The 6-foot-7, 320-pound left tackle had his appendix removed Monday. He played through discomfort in last week’s 35-34 win at Buffalo. Roos, believed to be the first NFL player born in Estonia, watched practice Wednesday and Thursday and is being checked daily by a doctor before the Titans (3-4) play the Colts (3-3) on Sunday. “Always want to keep something like (the streak) going, but can’t do anything too disastrous to my health going forward,” Roos said. – AP

National spotlight on Eastern

The initial hype has subsided, but Eastern Washington University’s decision to replace the natural grass in Woodward Field with a red synthetic playing surface continues to stir interest and conversations across the country.
