08/01/2001 at 04:14 PM EDT

DIED: Pro Bowl offensive lineman Korey Stringer, 27, of the Minnesota Vikings, died of heat stroke early Wednesday, the team said. The 6-ft.-4, 335-pound began exhibiting signs of heat stroke, including weakness and rapid breathing, after a morning practice session Tuesday. Temperatures in Eden Prairie, where the Vikings hold their preseason practices, reached a high of 98 degrees Tuesday . . . WAYLAID: An unspecified surgical procedure has forced seven-time Grammy winning singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow, 39, to cancel her Aug. 6 concert in Michigan (her second such cancellation), her managers have announced. Crow is said to be resting at home and is expected to recover within two weeks . . . WELL-BEHAVED: Former Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, 38, is abiding by terms of probation for spousal abuse (after a 1998 brush with then-estranged wife Pamela Anderson) and is steadily working at completing a community service obligation, a prosecutor told Malibu Superior Court Judge Lawrence Mira on Monday. The jurist ordered Lee back to court Jan. 4 for another progress report . . . SUED: Country singer Carlene Carter and her companion, Howie Epstein (bassist for Tom Petty) are charged with owing more than $22,000 in fees for leaving six dogs in Kiki's All Breed Grooming in Santa Fe, N.M., for more than a year, according to legal papers filed by kennel owners Gary Gibson and Darlene Sponsel (who reportedly still have the animals). Carter and Epstein could not be reached for comment.
