On Tuesday, The Undefeated hosted A Conversation with The President: Sports, Race and Achievement, a town hall discussion with President Barack Obama, on the campus of North Carolina A&T State University, which you can watch here. There was also a podcast Tuesday, which you can listen to here.

Terence Crutcher’s autopsy was released, revealing that the 40-year-old had phencyclidine, known more commonly as the drug PCP, in his system at the time he was shot and killed by police in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in September. Crutcher’s family called the finding “unfortunate,” which only makes you wonder how it will affect the case against Betty Shelby, the officer who shot Crutcher. Regardless of what was in his system, Crutcher acted with compliance, put his hands up and still was killed. ABC News’ Clayton Sandell and Enjoli Francis report.

Nadine Hernandez, the 44-year-old Los Angeles Police Department detective investigating Rose’s case, was found dead of a gunshot wound at her home in Whittier, California. At the time, it is uncertain whether Hernandez’s death was a result of a homicide or suicide. The Los Angeles Times’ Richard Winton and Hailey Branson-Potts report.

The Dallas Cowboys are in a pickle, or at least will be in a couple of weeks. As injured quarterback Tony Romo’s understudy, rookie Dak Prescott has led Dallas to a 4-1 record. However, Romo will available to return to the field in a few weeks after sitting out for this entire season. The speculation is the Cowboys will ditch the hot hand of Prescott and roll with Romo, whom Father Time has been mighty cruel to. But until that happens, let’s revel in the success of Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliot, who is also a rookie. FiveThirtyEight’s Chase Stuart breaks down how the duo has the Cowboys back on top.
