CHAPECO, Brazil -- The president of Brazilian football team Chapecoense was buried Sunday as fans paid their final tributes, trying to put behind them the worst moment in the clubs history.Club president Sandro Pallaoro was on the plane that crashed almost a week ago as the club was traveling to Colombia to play the first of two games to determine the Copa Sudamericana champion -- the No. 2 club tournament in Latin America.The crash killed 71 of 77 people on board, including 19 players. The dead were honored Saturday at Chapecos stadium, with burials taking place across the country. None of the players were from the small southern Brazilian city.Pallaoro was praised for making the small club competitive, and keeping it out of debt.Until now our priority was the families, Chapecoense fan Agenor Martins said.Now we have to open a new chapter for the club and for the city, we have to move on. The presidents example is that we can be great even in a small city if we do everything in the right, most transparent way. And we will do it again.Chapeco Mayor Luciano Buligon said the city is looking forward and hopes to return to some ordinary routines on Monday.Schools will be open again, and we will start adapting after this tragedy that will be with us forever, Buligon said. Our community will hold tight and recover little by little. Until then all we can do is to be with the families that stay here and cry with them.The club is guaranteed a spot next season in Brazils top league, and is likely to be reassembled with mostly junior players, and players on loan from other clubs.Retired Argentine star Juan Roman Riquelme and Brazils Ronaldinho have offered to come out of retirement to help the club.The final round of matches in Brazils top league was postponed because of the tragedy. The Brazilian Football Confederation has not clarified if matches will take place next weekend.Players on many teams have said they dont want to play.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Ryan Mallett is a second-string quarterback making the most of a second chance.Mallett joined the Ravens in December after being cut two months earlier by Houston. Thrust almost immediately into a starting role, he carried Baltimore to a victory over Pittsburgh before throwing for 292 yards in a loss at Cincinnati.Now that Joe Flacco stands atop the depth chart again following offseason knee surgery, Mallett has returned to the role hes held for much of his career: backup.Im still going to prepare like Im the starter every week, Mallett said after Wednesdays practice. Thats the only way Im going to be ready to go if something happens and my number is called.Flacco started 137 straight games before tearing two ligaments in his left knee on Nov. 22. Until that time, being the Ravens backup quarterback pretty much meant tossing your helmet aside on Sunday and watching from the sideline.Because theres no telling if Flaccos knee can take a pounding in game action, Mallett had better be ready to go.Ive definitely spent more time in the offense. Im a lot more comfortable, Mallett said. Its not just a week of preparation. Ive had a spring now and a summer to prepare myself, and these first two weeks of training camp.Mallett has been nothing but professional since arriving in Baltimore. His tenure with the Texans, on the other hand, will be remembered for his misdeeds.He was late for a practice session and late for the team bus. The Texans finally cut him after he missed the team charter flight for a game in Miami.None of that matters to Ravens coach John Harbaugh.Thats the thing about life, football, whatever. It doesnt end at your first mistake, Harbaugh said.dddddddddddd You have a chance, hopefully, to do the right things. To bounce back.The 28-year-old Mallett is eager to move on. Short term, hes focused on facing the Carolina Panthers in Baltimores preseason opener.Im here to play football. Im ready for the season to get started, Mallett said. Im ready for Thursday night.Mallett was drafted in the third round in 2011 by the Patriots, who kept him on the bench behind Tom Brady for three straight seasons. He played in three games with Houston in 2014, starting twice, before bouncing from the Texans to Baltimore last year.Big guy, big arm, really sharp, Ravens quarterbacks coach Marty Morningweg said. Hes had an outstanding camp. He can make some tremendous throws down the field.Mallett has the talent to start. For now, he remains in waiting mode.I wouldnt play if I didnt want to be a starter, Mallett said. Thats not the situation right now. I understand my role on this team and Im going to do that to the best of my ability.With Flacco likely to remain on the sideline Thursday, Mallett will get plenty of playing time leading up to the Sept. 11 regular-season opener against Buffalo.Ryan is a heck of a guy. Hes a hard worker. Hes a pro, Harbaugh said. Its going to be fun to watch him play. As far as a player for us, hes 1-1. Hes .500. Its time for him to win some more games, and hell have a chance to do that for us in the preseason.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
