Update on the latest in sports:
Hue Jackson back in Cincinnati
CINCINNATI (AP) – Hue Jackson has landed back in Cincinnati, where he’ll help head coach Marvin Lewis try to resurrect the Bengals’ historically bad defense.
The Bengals hired Jackson as a special assistant on Tuesday, a day after Cincinnati fired its defensive coordinator and put Lewis in charge of running the unit. Lewis says Jackson will help him prepare the defense each week and he’ll be on the field during games helping him with decisions.
It’s Jackson’s third stint with the Bengals. He was their offensive coordinator before the Browns hired him as head coach after the 2015 season. Jackson was fired last month after winning only three games in Cleveland.
The Bengals are on pace to give up the most yards in NFL history.

Japan tied the game on Kosuke Tanaka’s single to center that scored Uebayashi from second.
John Brebbia replaced Yates and Japan took the lead on Kikuchi’s sacrifice bunt that scored Kosuke Tanaka from third.
The hosts added an insurance run on Yuki Yanagita’s high chopper over the head of Brebbia that allowed Shogo Akiyama to score from third.
Yasuaki Yamasaki recorded the final three outs for the save.
Yates, who gave up four runs, two unearned, took the loss.
