Sports log: Packers’ Rodgers rips Braun for lying


Ryan Braun apparently has some work to do to repair his friendship with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Describing himself as shocked and disappointed, Rodgers said on Friday that Braun ‘‘looked at me in the eye on multiple occasions and repeatedly denied the allegations’’ that the Brewers slugger was using performance-enhancing drugs. Braun this week accepted a season-ending 65-game suspension for violating baseball’s rules against using PEDs. ‘‘It’s disappointing, not only for myself as a friend but for obviously Wisconsin sports fans, Brewer fans, Major League Baseball fans,’’ Rodgers said. “It doesn’t feel great being lied to like that, and I’m disappointed about the way it all went down.’’ . . . Redskins defensive end Jarvis Jenkins was suspended for four games without pay for violating the NFL’s drug policy. Jenkins released a statement saying, ‘‘It’s an obscure substance that I’ve never even heard of, and I still don’t know how it got into my body.’ . . . The Chiefs agreed to terms with No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher. Details of the contract with the offensive tackle were not released . . . An MRI found that Bengals All-Pro receiver A.J. Green has a bruised knee that will force him to miss several days of practice . . . Jets receiver Santonio Holmes, who is still recovering from a serious foot injury that sidelined him for most of last season, isn’t sure if he’ll be able to play this year.
