Lucky Whitehead out indefinitely with broken foot as unlucky summer continues

Lucky Whitehead hasn’t been so lucky lately, and his summer took a turn for the worst this week.

The Jets receiver sustained a broken foot and is out indefinitely, the team announced Tuesday.

Newton threw to receivers during Tuesday’s workout at camp in Spartanburg, S.C., for the first time since being pulled halfway through a July 30 practice because of what the team described as fatigue and soreness in his right shoulder.

The Panthers have been cautious with Newton since he underwent surgery on his right shoulder in March to repair a partially torn rotator cuff. They still don’t have a definitive timeline for his full return.

Newton didn’t play in Carolina’s preseason opener against the Texans on Wednesday, but he is reportedly expected to get in on the action “at some point” in the preseason ahead of the team’s regular-season opener Sept. 10 at San Francisco.

Kundla was born in Star Junction, Penn., but grew up in Minneapolis. Prior to coaching the Lakers, he spent one season leading the basketball program for the College of St. Thomas in St. Paul.

Instead of moving with the Lakers to Los Angeles, Kundla stayed in the Twin Cities and took over the University of Minnesota basketball program in 1959. Kundla was a standout basketball player for the Gophers and coached his alma mater for nine seasons, but had just three winning seasons and failed to make the NCAA Tournament.

Remembered as a humble coach with an attention to detail, Kundla was praised for his ability to adjust to the ebb and flow of a game. He coached through the widening of the court and the implementation of the shot clock.
