Here's what you missed this weekend in sports:

It's gonna have to be a different man for the Cleveland Browns, who fired head coach Rob Chudzinski after just a year on the job.

The Washington Redskins are about to undergo a major overhaul, and as such deserve their own post.

Fighting for His Life
Formula One legend Michael Schumacher underwent brain surgery after hitting his head on a rock while skiing in the French Alps. He remains in a medically induced coma, and doctors are uncertain of his outlook.

Rolling Thunder
With Russell Westbrook out until after the All-Star break, Kevin Durant has a chance to prove he's a leading man. It also gives James Harden a chance to reflect on his decision to turn down the Oklahoma City Thunder's four-year, $48 million extension and his subsequent trade to the Houston Rockets.
