Thursday Wisconsin Sports UPDATE

Here is the latest Wisconsin sports from The AP

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- As a former high school baseball star, Brett Favre knows it's not unheard of for a ballplayer to sneak a peek at the signals a catcher is sending to his pitcher. But if the New England Patriots really were using a video camera to steal opposing defensive coaches' signals -- perhaps even in their game against the Packers last year -- Favre says they might have gone too far. He says that would cross the line, and it could give a huge advantage.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning took some snaps, made a few handoffs and tossed lightly to test his bruised right shoulder Wednesday in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Manning did not practice and coach Tom Coughlin gave no indication whether he would play Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. But the coach says he's encourages by his progress.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers are off today but could still either lose some ground or gain ground in the National League Central Division race. Milwaukee's 7-4 loss at Pittsburgh Wednesday, combined with the Chicago Cubs' 3-2 win at Houston, left the Brewers and Cubs back in a first-place tie, four games ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cubs play against tonight in Houston, while the Cardinals play at Cincinnati.

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Brewers catcher Damian Miller says yesterday's loss was tough to take. The team came back to tie the score at 4-4 before the Pirates scored three times in the eighth inning off reliever Derrick Turnbow to win it. Miller says the Brewers aren't giving up their chase of a division title.
