A high school sports study conducted by the Korey Stringer Institute and sponsored in part by the NFL shows that many individual states are not fully implementing key safety guidelines to protect athletes from potentially life-threatening conditions, including heat stroke.

The state-by-state survey showed North Carolina with the most comprehensive health and safety policies at 79 percent, followed by Kentucky at 71 percent.

At the bottom were Colorado's 23 percent and California's 26 percent.

Nevada ranked 29th at 45 percent.

After a day off, the soon to be Las Vegas Raiders returned to training camp ahead of their first preseason game August 12, 2017 at Arizona.

Jake Lamb hit his second career grand slam, his first off a left-hander, in the seventh inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks rallied to beat Los Angeles 6-3 on Tuesday night, only the eighth loss for the Dodgers in their last 52 games.

Summerlin South was eliminated from the Little League World Series West Regional Tuesday, losing 8-5 to Utah.
