NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- The San Francisco 49ers say they have addressed anti-gay remarks made by cornerback Chris Culliver but didn't say whether the second-year player will face disciplinary action or a fine. During an interview Tuesday at the Superdome, Culliver responded to questions from comedian Artie Lange by saying he wouldn't welcome a gay player in the locker room. He also said the 49ers didn't have any homosexual players and, if they did, those players should leave.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- The chorus from Sandy Hook Elementary School will sing "America the Beautiful" before Sunday's Super Bowl between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens.

The performance will be part of CBS's pre-game show, and will be broadcast live.
