Sports briefs: Culpepper out of fish tank

Daunte Culpepper’s career in Miami is over before it ever really got started. The quarterback was cut by the Dolphins, just a day before a grievance filed by the NFL Players Association was to be heard.

Vick indicted for his role in dogfighting operation

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, perhaps the most popular player in the NFL, was indicted by a Richmond, Va., grand jury on charges of sponsoring a dogfighting operation so grisly the losers either died in the pit or sometimes were electrocuted, drowned, hanged or shot. Three others were also charged in the case. Vick owns the property where Bad Newz Kennels was located. If convicted, Vick faces up to six years in prison, $350,000 in fines and restitution. “We are disappointed that Michael Vick has put himself in a position where a federal grand jury has returned an indictment against him,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said.
