Sports briefs: Suarez’s penalty for biting opponent still has teeth
First Published Aug 14 2014 10:49 pm • Last Updated Aug 14 2014 10:49 pm

SOCCER • Luis Suarez will train with his Barcelona teammates on Friday after his ban for biting an opponent at the World Cup was softened but not shortened. The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled Thursday that the Uruguay forward deserves his four-month ban from playing official matches for both his club and his country. CAS did, however, clear Suarez to start training with his club. Suarez bit Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini’s shoulder during Uruguay’s 1-0 win at the World Cup on June 24. He denied it at first, but later recanted.
