Trial delayed again in Taylor shooting

The trial involving the men charged in the shooting death of former Redskins safety Sean Taylor has been postponed again until March 14.

Taylor died a few days after Thanksgiving in 2007 after suffering a gunshot wound to his leg while confronting intruders in his Miami home. Fort Myers, Fla., residents Eric Rivera, 20; Jason Scott Mitchell, 22; Charles K. Wardlow, 21; and Timmy Lee Brown, 19; face first-degree murder and armed burglary charges in connection with Taylor's death.

The trial date has been repeatedly reset.

LB Gibson suffered scapular fracture

Virginia Tech announced Tuesday that linebacker Lyndell Gibson suffered a scapular fracture during Saturday's ACC championship game victory over Florida State.

His return date is undetermined at this point, but Gibson hasn't been ruled out of the Jan. 3 Orange Bowl. According to the team's release, the Virginia Beach native will undergo further testing this week and follow up with team doctor Marc Siegel to determine a plan of action.

The injury occurred on a big sideline hit Gibson delivered just before halftime.
