TEMPE, AZ (AP) -- Jonathan Cooper's rookie season might not be over after all.

Arizona coach Bruce Arians says the Cardinals' first-round draft pick could be back for the final six games of the season after undergoing surgery on his broken left leg.

The seventh overall pick in the draft was injured in Saturday night's 24-7 preseason loss to the San Diego Chargers.

Arians says Daryn Colledge will move back to Cooper's left guard spot, with Paul Fanaika taking the right guard position. Colledge played on the left side his entire seven-year NFL career but was moved to right guard after Arizona drafted Cooper. Chilo Rachal also is in the mix at right guard.

Six other Arizona players were hurt in the game, including tight end Rob Housler with a high left ankle sprain.

WILMINGTON, NC (ASHLEY RELEASE) -- Ashley volleyball coach, Larry Salefsky has resigned. Larry has accepted a position with Coastal Carolina as an assistant volleyball coach.

His resignation comes after a historic season for Ashley: The Screaming Eagles shared the Mideastern Conference title with Rose in 2012 and finished second in the Mideastern Conference in 2011. Salefsky was 18 and 6 last year and 32-12 overall in two seasons at Ashley.

"Larry has raised the bar and the expectation of women's volleyball here at Ashley. He was able to get the girls to participate in Junior Olympic volleyball in the off season. Larry has worked very hard to build on the tradition of Ashley volleyball. We wish him the best in all his future endeavors."

Sarita Havens, will move up to the varsity head coach position.

NEW YORK (AP) - Serena Williams was so dominant in the first round of the U.S. Open, her opponent really needed a hug.

So midway through the second set of defending champion Williams' 6-0, 6-1 victory Monday night, Francesca Schiavone wandered behind the baseline, found a ball boy and enveloped him in a full-fledged embrace.

It was that kind of evening for Schiavone, an often-demonstrative player who is certainly no pushover: She won the 2010 French Open, and was the runner-up at that Grand Slam tournament a year later. She's been ranked as high as No. 4 but is 54th this week.

The No. 1-ranked Williams was nearly perfect, making only eight unforced errors, compared with a 13-3 edge in winners, hitting serves faster than 115 mph, and taking the first 10 games.

CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) - Travelle Wharton could go from late-summer acquisition to opening day starter for the Carolina Panthers.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera says last year's starting left guard Amini Silatolu "more than likely" will miss the Sept. 8 regular season opener with a hamstring injury, opening an opportunity for Wharton to step in and start at his old position.

The 32-year-old Wharton, who started 99 games for the Panthers from 2004-11, re-signed with his former team on Sunday after injuries left the offensive line depleted.

Wharton was greeted by his teammates' collective chant of "Tra-Velle" as he stepped on the football field Monday for the first time in more than a year.

Wharton says the practice went well and hopes to put last year's season-ending knee injury with Cincinnati behind him.
