Junior Galette will miss 2nd straight season with torn Achilles

Washington signed outside linebacker Junior Galette last July on a one-year deal, and he has yet to take the field after suffering a torn Achilles tendon prior to the start of the 2015 season. Galette signed another one-year deal with Washington in March, but according to NFL Media’s Rand Getlin, Galette will be sidelined for the entirety of the 2016 season, too, after tearing the other Achilles.

Galette entered the league as an Authentic Paul Richardson Jersey undrafted free agent with the New Orleans Saints following the 2010 NFL Draft. After racking up just 9.5 sacks over his first three seasons in New Orleans, Galette’s productivity exploded. In 2013, he finished the season with 12 sacks and two pass breakups. In 2014, his 10 sacks convinced the Saints to give him a four-year, $41.5 million dollar contract in 2014.

REINSTATED AND IT FEELS SO GOOD: Josh Gordon can Authentic Rees Odhiambo Jersey play football again. After sitting out a year for multiple violations of the NFL’s substance abuse policy, the Browns receiver will see the field again this year, after a four-game suspension. It’s been a while since you’ve seen him play, so you may have forgotten that Gordon is very, very good.

PHILLY STANDS WITH BRADFORD: The Eagles started training camp, and Sam Bradford is still their starting QB. For now. But Doug Pederson wouldn’t rule out Carson Wentz suiting up in 2016. Just give it few games with Bradford under center. The Eagles will be ready to make the change then.

CONCUSSION RULES WITH TEETH: NFL will now impose fines, loss of draft picks for concussion protocol violations. The league wants to prevent another Case Keenum debacle like the one last season when Rams head coach Jeff Fisher let his clearly concussed quarterback keep playing.

TOUGH BREAK FOR WASHINGTON: Junior Galette tears his Achilles … his other Achilles. He’s out for the season already, a big blow to Washington’s pass rush.

MANNING’S INNOCENT: NFL determines Peyton Manning did not use PEDs. Manning has been cleared of any wrongdoing alleged in the Al-Jazeera America report on PED usage.

JENNINGS SAYS GOODBYE: Greg Jennings announced his retirement. Three years after departing Green Bay, the former Packer is hanging up the cleats for the last time. His greatest highlight ever was scoring a touchdown with a broken leg in Madden. He put da team on his back, doe.

REMEMBERING DENNY GREEN: Dennis Green paved his own way. Green coached just like he lived his life, independent and passionate, and always found his way to high road.

Dez Bryant doesn’t feel like he has lost a step in his return

FRISCO — Officially, Dez Bryant was limited in Wednesday’s practice as he works his way back from a tibial plateau fracture in his right leg. Realistically, the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver said he can play every snap in Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

“Oh, man, I feel like I haven’t lost Adam Gotsis Jersey a step as far as conditioning,” Bryant said.

“I feel good,” Dez Bryant said. “Just can’t wait to get back out there.”
Bryant went through three limited practices leading into the Oct. 16 game against the Green Bay Packers, one limited practice during the Cowboys bye week and two practices so far this week.

“I think it’s important for guys Andy Janovich Jersey to practice like we’ve always talked about,” coach Jason Garrett said. “He’s dealt with this injury and he’s been chomping at the bit to come back and play and medically we felt like it was important for him to wait to heal up a little bit more, give it a little more time.”

“Seems like forever,” Bryant said. “Now it’s over. I’m excited. I get to be back with my teammates and get to be a part of the excitement. It’s just fun. I just can’t wait to get out there and have fun.”

“Back then, I kept that away from Doug as much as possible,” Baldwin Sr. said. “What I told Doug as a kid is this is something that dad has to do to make his life and the lives of others better. And my son was always proud of me being a police officer. He was only exposed to the good nature of the job.”

When this season started, Baldwin Jr. decided he had to do something to use his platform to promote change. He was frustrated by the continued news of police officers shooting young black men.

Baldwin Jr. did his research, which included conversations with his dad, and eventually settled on focusing his efforts on improved training policies.

Mike Sando, senior NFL writer: The biggest potential upset I can find, point-spreadswise, was Chicago over Minnesota in the Monday night game. The Bears will have 11 days between games, with minimal travel on the front end. The Vikings’ issues along the offensive line aren’t going away. They are coming off a rough game against the Eagles and could be vulnerable on the road against a division rival.

Saints 1st-rounder Sheldon Rankins will have surgery for broken fibula

The New Orleans Saints selected defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft with the expectation that he would bolster a weak defensive front. Rankins went down with an injury Monday and was carted off the practice field. It was later reported that Rankins suffered a broken fibula and will have surgery that will keep him out 6-8 weeks, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Bell’s suspension was his second in two years, after receiving a three-game suspension for violating the same substance abuse policy in 2015. He successfully reduced his suspension to two games on appeal last year, but still wound up missing a total of 10 games after sustaining a season-ending knee injury.

The big question was whether Brice Butler Jersey Bell would be 100 percent healthy for the start of the season due to the injury before his suspension was handed down. The Steelers’ running game became a huge question mark when his suspension was handed down, however.

Last season DeAngelo Williams filled Byron Jones Jersey in quite well for Bell, managing 907 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground. He averaged 4.5 yards per carry, which was surprising late in his career, and many wondered if he had enough left in the tank to carry the team’s rushing attack for another four games.

Bell will miss games against Washington, the Cincinnati Bengals and Philadelphia Eagles to start the season, and he will return for the Steelers’ Sunday Night Football matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 4.

In three seasons in the league, Bell has rushed for 2,777 yards and 19 touchdowns, including an impressive 1,361 yards and eight touchdowns in 2014. That season, he also had 854 yards and three touchdowns through the air. That’s what he’s capable of doing in a full 16-game season, but missed 10 games in 2015 and three games as a rookie in 2013.

Browns had to turn to 4th-string QB Kevin Hogan and he’s doing pretty well

The Cleveland Browns were already trading snaps between third- and fourth-string quarterbacks Sunday, but now it’s just Kevin Hogan leading the way against the Cincinnati Bengals after Cody Kessler went to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion and the team announced he will not return.

Kessler made his fifth start for Jim McMahon Jersey the Browns in Week 7 after the team lost Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown to injuries in the first two weeks of the season. He started strong — completing nine of 11 passes for 82 yards — before suffering a hit that sent him to the locker room and eventually ended his game.

Earlier this month, the NFL announced teams would no longer be able to share clips of their own players. The league enacted this policy because it wants to maintain direct control of all game day content that emanates from stadiums. In addition, teams are barred from using Facebook Live, Periscope, or other apps to stream anything from inside of the Jonathan Bullard Jersey stadium.

The Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles, and Houston Texans took some not-so subtle shots at the NFL last week over this rule. The Browns and Eagles posted videos of electric football to substitute for highlights, whereas the Texas found a creative way to recap their come-from-behind win against the Indianapolis Colts without using any game footage.

Just in case you missed the end of last night’s game, we figured we’d get you up to speed.

On the whole, La Canfora writes that most owners are supportive of the league’s new initiative as it tries to navigate the emerging digital media landscape. But it’s clear there are some dissenters, and Jones appears to be leading the charge.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles is expected to play Sunday with a limited workload, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Charles, who missed 11 games last season and the first four contests this year after tearing his ACL, is currently experiencing swelling in his knee.

Though Charles has been active the last two weeks, the Chiefs have limited his number of touches. He’s carried the ball 11 times for 40 yards and scored a touchdown last Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.

Pittsburgh Penguins’ Cullen, Lovejoy, and Bernie Kosar Jersey Rust celebrate after Cullen scored a goal during the third period of Game 3 of a first-round NHL playoff hockey series against the New Rangers Tuesday, 19, New. The Penguins won 3. Pittsburgh Penguins Fehr and Cullen celebrate a goal by Letang as New Rangers’ Mats Zuccarello watches during the third period of Game 3 of a first-round NHL playoff hockey series Tuesday, 19, New. The Penguins won 3. The Pittsburgh Penguins got back to playing the style that made them one of the NHL’s best teams after Christmas. They played defense. They got goals from their stars, a game-winner from 39-year-old Cullen and a solid effort from rookie goaltender. They also got the benefit of a video review on offside call that saved them a goal a 3 win Game 3 of the first-round playoff series with the New Rangers on Tuesday night. Even the return of Rangers captain McDonagh could not slow down the Penguins or prevent them from taking a 2 lead their first-round playoff series. We understand if you want to win, that’s how you’re going to have to win them this time of year, said Penguins Crosby, whose power-play goal late the second period tied the game at 1-all. Our mindset is playing the right way, doing the things that have got us here, The past is the past. Right now we want to make sure we are better every game. I think we took a good step here tonight. Game 4 is Thursday night New. The Rangers have lost four consecutive playoff at Square Garden going back to last ‘s Eastern Conference final against Tampa Bay The Penguins dominated this one, limiting the Rangers to 17 shots. Most were not very good and Rangers did little after Nash scored short-handed early the second period. We kept saying it, we kept telling ourselves, we had to lay it and shoot it, said McDonagh, who missed the first two of the series with a upper-body injury. I’m sure we’ll look at some things when we watch the game and wish we had put more pucks on the net especially because it was his first game a while. was barely tested playing for the first time the series. He was hurt the final weekend of the regular and Zatkoff started the first two with – Fleury out with a concussion. The nerves were definitely going at the start of the game. That’s understandable, said. It was first playoff game, at MSG no less. I was able to control it and that was all I could ask for. The Penguins made all the big plays after Nash scored. Crosby gave the team a lift scoring late the second period and Cullen made the big play early the third, beating Henrik Lundqvist on a semi-breakaway after beating two defensemen at 4. Cullen’s game-winner was as much a good play by him and a bad one by defensemen Yandle and Boyle. Cullen took a pass and entered the Rangers zone. Yandle and Boyle converged on him and ran into each other. It was kind of a tough puck, Cullen said. It was bouncing a lot tonight. That one just went to a perfect spot. I was the right spot and was able to poke it by. I was just happy to it go. Letang added empty-net goal to ice the game. This was a game which the Rangers seemed to lose momentum after a first-period goal by Kreider was nullified because of offside call after a challenge. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said it was the right call. Nash still gave New the lead early the second period, but the Penguins took control when Crosby tied the game and Cullen scored early the third to give them the lead. Pittsburgh went into a defensive posture at that point and shut the Rangers down. For some reason it was hard for us to create the big chances, Lundqvist said. We were hoping to come home and to get the building energized and to get ourselves energized. They just played very well defensively. They didn’t give up much. I ‘t know what to say. Nash’s goal snapped New ‘s scoreless playoff drought at home at 166 minutes, 22 seconds, dating to Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against Tampa Bay last. The Lightning shut out New Games 5 and 7 to win the series. Crosby got his second goal of the series after Staal took a hooking penalty with a minute left the period. The Penguins needed 18 seconds to convert, with Crosby redirecting Phil Kessel’s attempt into the net from about two feet away. An offside review on the Kreider non-goal showed that J.T. entered the zone a split second before the puck and the goal was waved off. The Rangers had more than three minutes remaining on a double minor to Conor Sheary and the reversal took the air out of them and the crowd. NOTES: With McDonagh back, Dylan McIlrath was scratched…. Crosby and Malkin each played their 103rd playoff game, tying Kevin Stevens for third team history…. Nash’s goal was his first short-handed the playoffs…. Crosby’s goal was his 45th the playoffs, one shy of tying Stevens for third place on the team’s all-time list.

She said he was an innocent victim who also suffered broken ribs and legs. He told everyone to move on and go back to riding. His sole intention was to defuse the situation, she said.

Forensics experts were Red Bryant Jersey examining the Range Rover on Saturday at a police precinct Washington Heights, where the chase ended.

On Thursday, Rosalind Ng, ‘s wife, released a statement claiming that it was a life-threatening situation and that her husband had no choice but to drive off when angry bikers surrounded their vehicle.

39-year-old takes first step towards management Ricardo Lockette Jersey Giggs has been appointed player-coach by Manchester United. Photograph: Peters Man Utd via Getty Images Often linked with the United manager’s job at some point the future, the 39-year-old has been taking his coaching badges and is due to earn the Uefa Pro Licence next . He signed a new one-year deal March and combine playing with his new duties. It’s no secret that I have been taking qualifications and I this as the first step future career, said Giggs.

Here’s a scary thought: Clayton Kershaw has added to his arsenal

Less is often more, so it is a delicate endeavor when making additions to perceived greatness.

Would Disneyland really be better with an extreme roller-coaster? Would golf’s U.S. Open benefit from hostile Ryder Cup crowds? Should In-N-Out Burger offer bacon for its double-doubles?

But the playoffs are a Buster Posey Jersey completely different thing, and 37,762 Cleveland fans embraced the opportunity to emote on the big stage Thursday night. They got all dressed up in red, waved red towels and willed their team to a 5-4 victory over the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of the American League Division Series.

Several Cleveland players have attributed the team’s regular-season success at home to a roster-wide comfort level at Progressive Field. In the series opener against Boston, the Indians looked more inspired than comfortable.

“It was awesome,” Indians closer Cody Allen Dave Dravecky Jersey said. “The only thing a lot of guys in this clubhouse are able to compare it to is the 2013 playoff game [against Tampa Bay], and then Opening Day every year. There are some nights in between when it gets packed and it gets crazy. But this was definitely a special atmosphere.”

“I kind of like his emotions. I like when I see a Yu Darvish that’s excited. I think that’s when we get his best,” Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. “Look, this is a pitcher that’s an extremely accomplished pitcher. I feel comfortable with where he’s at mentally, physically.

Some additions make more sense than others.

Clayton Kershaw is starting to tinker with what some believe is the best arsenal of pitches in the game. The bacon to his new pitch mix is something of a three-quarter delivery that the Los Angeles Dodgers’ ace sprinkles in every so often for a little flavor.

Kershaw already gave hitters enough to deal with as it was: a precise fastball, a 12 o’clock-6 o’clock curveball and a sweeping slider. Now there is this, that little doubt that creeps into the back of your mind and only grows stronger, like when the plane takes off for vacation and you can’t remember if you’ve turned off the stove.

That’s really all you can say about a pitcher who gave up six hits and seven runs — six earned — in 3? innings, which just happened to be the shortest start of Hamels’ postseason career.
