AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn freshman football player Jakell Lenard Mitchell was shot and killed Sunday morning at an apartment complex near the Auburn University campus, police and news reports said. Auburn Police Capt. Will Matthews told The Associated Press that police responded at 12:25 a.m. Sunday to a shots fired call the Tiger Lodge apartment complex, where the 18-year-old Mitchell was found. Mitchell was later pronounced dead at a hospital. Matthews said an investigation is ongoing and no suspects have been taken into custody. No further details were released. Mitchell redshirted this season for the Auburn Tigers out of nearby Opelika High School. He was expected to contend for a starting spot next season as a back and tight end. Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs later tweeted to the community: The Auburn Family is grieving the loss of a teammate & friend Jakell Mitchell. We are praying for his family. There were no other immediate statements by Auburn officials. Mitchell missed his senior season at Opelika as he recovered from an ACL injury. He rushed for 392 yards and 17 touchdowns in 2013 as a junior. Sundays shooting happened at the same apartment complex Desmonte Leonard killed three men at a party in the summer of 2012. The complex, located a few miles from campus, is popular with students and its name was changed following the 2012 shooting. Jurors convicted Leonard of capital murder in the shooting deaths of former Auburn football players Ed Christian and Ladarious Phillips along with DeMario Pitts. Three other people were wounded. Leonards attorney said the shooting stemmed from a fight and that Leonard fired in self-defence. Prosecutors argued that Leonard aimed at the victims and wasnt involved in the initial fight. Leonard will be sentenced on Jan. 20. The jury recommended life without parole, but the judge could still sentence him to death.

BEREA, Ohio -- Browns cornerback Joe Haden hopes to deliver Rex Ryan a lump of coal on Sunday. Haden returned to practice Friday after missing two days with a bruised hip and said he may play in Sundays game against the New York Jets. On a conference call earlier this week, Ryan, the Jets loquacious coach, praised the talented Haden as a "rare guy" and joked that one of the items on his Christmas list was for the cornerback to miss this weeks game. "Man, Im Bad Santa," Haden cracked. Haden was limited to riding a stationary bike on Thursday, but he was back on the field Friday and looked to be himself while doing sprints and drills during the portion of practice open to reporters. Haden was injured last week against Chicago when he was hit in the hip by Chicago tackle Jermon Bushrods knee while trying to make a tackle on a running play. Haden, arguably Clevelands best defensive player, will likely be a game-time decision. Of course, he wants to play. "If it was up to me, Im always going to ball," he said. "Thats what I want to do. I want to play. Lets put it there. I want to play, for sure." Haden is having a Pro Bowl-worthy season for the Browns (4-10), who have dropped five straight and eight of nine. Although Haden has given up some big plays in Clevelands past three losses, Browns defensive co-ordinator Ray Horton believes the fourth-year cornerback, who has been assigned to cover the oppositions top receiver every week, has played at a consistent, elite level. "When you look at the body of his work, hes had a fantastic year," Horton saidd.dddddddddddd The Browns will be without starting tight end Jordan Cameron on Sunday as he remains sidelined with a concussion. Cameron, who leads the Browns with 75 receptions, was also injured at some point late in the loss to the Bears. Hes following the NFLs guidelines on head injuries and must be cleared by an independent neurologist before he can play. Also wide receiver Davone Bess missed his second straight day for personal reasons. Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said he should know on Saturday whether Bess will travel with the team. As the Browns went through final preparations for Sundays game, a voice from their past was still making noise. Jets tight end Kellen Winslow, who began his pro career with the Browns, got some attention in Clevelands locker room when he said his former team doesnt have anyone who can cover him. The remarks are typical Winslow -- brash and boastful. "Hes thought that for years," said Chudzinski, who coached Winslow in Cleveland. "Thats the confidence that you want football players to have." Haden wasnt surprised by Winslows claim. "I saw it. Its funny," Haden said. "What would you all expect him to say? You want him to say, Yeah, man, those dudes up there are going to cover me?" I dont really know him that well, but just hearing of his personality, that sounds like the kind of guy that thats what hell say. It is what it is. On Sunday after the game, then well be able to figure out if we were able to guard him, if we werent able to guard him. "So no matter what we say now, it wont matter."
