National Sports Briefs

Associated Press
AUSTIN, Texas ó NFL running back Cedric Benson is free on bond after his arrest in Austin on an assault count.
The former Texas Longhorns star was arrested early Sunday on a misdemeanor count of assault with bodily injury with family violence.
NEW YORK ó Talks to end the NFL lockout will resume with the court-appointed mediator in New York on today and could continue through Thursday.
The mediator, U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan, originally had ordered representatives of the league’s owners and players to meet with him Tuesday in Minneapolis.
METS
NEW YORK ó Mets shortstop Jose Reyes is going to make a rehabilitation start for Class-A Brooklyn today before he is activated from the disabled list, possibly a day later.
Reyes tested his strained left hamstring by running the bases Sunday before New York lost to the Philadelphia Phillies 8-5. Manager Terry Collins announced the decision after the game.
With general manager Sandy Alderson and Reyes’ agent, Peter Greenberg, looking on, the All-Star ran from home to first, first to third, second to home and home to second.
Leading the majors with a .354 batting average, Reyes has been out since July 3 and is eligible to come off the disabled list Monday, but the Mets want him to test his leg in a game. Collins apparently wanted Reyes to skip the rehab game but was overruled.
NHL
RALEIGH ó The Carolina Hurricanes have reached deals with forward Chris Durno, left wing Brett Sutter and defenseman Bobby Sanguinetti for one-year contracts.
Durno, 30, signed a two-way deal for $525,000 on the NHL level and $105,000 on the American Hockey League level. There is a guarantee of at least $140,000 for the season.
Sutter, 24, re-signed for $525,000 on the NHL level or $75,000 in the AHL.
Sanguinetti, 23, agreed to a deal that will pay him $600,000 in the NHL and $62,500 at the minor-league level.
